Dirk Bikkembergs - Menswear Fashion Show Fall / Winter 2013/14
Sporty and luxurious, urban and elegant, are the words that define the guidelines of the dirk bikkembergs collection. hamish morrow who took over the reins of style last year, incorporated a new material this season, fur, which he uses on patchwork or on an all over, on sweaters, parkas and overcoats. the graphic spirit is accentuated by bright orange zips, structuring the garment. leather is also applied to the pockets. volumes oppose each other, ranging from the more adjusted to the more casual, while colours are striking.

hamish morrow :
the starting point was about luxury and sport, and casual elegance, and just a further development on my work, on the bikkembergs man, the bikkembergs man is very clear, who he is, dirk left behind a very strong foundation for me to build on and every season i always build on that.
we did a lot of research this season with fur, but how to make a fur coat not a traditional fur coat, i mean they are fur coats but they are mixed with leather and technical sportswear fabrics, the construction is technical sportswear but the visuality of the piece, or the aesthetic of the piece is traditional luxury.
so it\'s a new way of working with luxury manufacturers whose techniques are traditional and trying to combine that with a much more industrial technological performance aspect, so basically making it luxury performance orientated.
now that we are in our third season i think now is the time not to be shy anymore, now is the time for me not to be so timid because the transition has taken place and now we can really concentrate on taking the brand, not in a completely new direction but in a hamish morrow direction.
