Fashion designer Kristof Buntinx, Brussels’ most eccentric stylist, famous for his surrealistic creations, strikes again. After Marlène de Wouters’ evening gowns for the Queen Elisabeth competition and Dana Winner’s Golden Dress, pianist and singer An Pierlé also gave in to the charm of this fashion artist. For the darling of Belgian music connoisseurs he created the worm dress, a pun-centric name, since the Dutch word pier means worm in English.
It involved a short dress with drop waist with the bodice in sheer fabric, with boat neck and open back. He opted for three-quarter puff sleeves with narrow cuff, an above-the-knee flare skirt and glamorous trim with jade green sequins around the collar, waist and back opening.
This exclusive dress is custom-made by Kristof Buntinx’ studio. But you too can be a star and shine in a Buntinx-Pierlé: the dress is available to buy online as part of Kristof’s customisation line (available in 5 sizes: XS, S, M, L and XL) at an affordable price.
The key to Kristof Buntinx’ creations is language as surrealists like to use it, fully capitalising on the ambiguity and stratification inherent to it. Just think of masterpieces by our national treasure René Magritte, who finds a worthy successor in Kristof!
