EARLY WARNING SIGNAL: PEET DULLAERT'S DECISIVE ELEGANCE

Such a precise sense of identity always draws your attention.Such a precise sense of identity always draws your attention.

Peet Dullaert is the 24 year old Dutch designer who in only one year of work has set the antennas of dedicated followers of fashion on high alert . Peet is currently deep in the studio prepping his Spring 2014 offering. TI got his attention for a sec in the hopes of unraveling the essence of Dullaert's process. It is a process that presents a kind of classic femininity zapped with the nonchalance, speed and verve of very modern life. Subverting that illusory casualness with an obsessive attention to rigor, quality and detail, Dullaert is that rare young designer with a decided design signature all his very own. Such a precise sense of identity always draws my attention, though every time I have dinner with Peet I'm amazed at the open optimism of his youthfulness against the authoritative sharpness of his clothes. That combination is lethal. Here, he explains its genesis.

Opening Ceremony Rocks To Antwerp's New Beat

Humberto Leon : What was going out in Antwerp like back then? I hear about Antwerp having this really amazing nightlife moment. Does that still scene still exist?
Raf Simons : The best moment ever, ever, ever for me was when New Beat hit. I’ve never experienced anything else like that in my life. Imagine three or four thousand kids coming together at a discotheque in the middle of nowhere. Everything you saw was fashion. Whether it was self-made, or second-hand, or high fashion like Gaultier. We had a very specific way of dancing, and a very specific sound. There were a lot of lasers and a lot of drugs. It was sublime.

COVETED LABEL OF THE MOMENT: J.W. ANDERSON

Somewhere between the Versus and Nikon collaborations, at that sweet spot where his of-the-moment women's collections criss-crossed with his increasingly influential men's collection, JW Anderson has become IT.

TI IS MAD FOR: YUU DESIGNER Nusumigui

Nusumigui's work is characterized by childlike whimsy. That naive charm is belied by his incredible skill in cutting up, mashing up, juxtaposing , overlaying and cross-collaging

Salut to Peet Dullaert, the young Dutch designer currently refining an idea of modern femininity. Track him diligently! He's got the frisson!

TI IS MAD FOR: #OATW

I love how the street-smart , street cool of the OATW  line spins with  a kind of anti-corporate,  dead-pan irony.I love how the street-smart , street cool of the OATW line spins with a kind of anti-corporate, dead-pan irony.

Floyd Johnson as enterprising young photographer has been on TI's radar for a sustained minute now.
