Walter Van Beirendonck

Today I went to MAC to see what they have these days. I met Chris the owner, she looks fabulous in these metallic linen pants with the polka dotted blouse. She showed me some amazing designs from Walter Van Beirendonck. This jacket has so much detailing of embroidery and whimsical fun designs that it all works together. I was so impressed by his work! The embroidery reminds of the traditional Korean dress called Hanbok. We discussed how we do need more independent designers to give new and fresh ideas vs. corporate run companies. MAC carries a lot of Belgium designers i.e. Dries Van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck and many others. This fashion family has an eye for fresh ideas from Europe, that's what's made them ahead of the others. So if you're ever in Hayes Valley stop by MAC and take a look at their collections for men and women. One the best in the west coast by far.
