Matthieu Thouvenot

A current student at the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp (origin of the Antwerp Six: Walter Van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, Dirk Bikkembergs, Dirk Van Saene and Marina Yee), 23-year-old Thouvenot says that he is inspired by Baroque costume and the apocalypse. 
"Baroque is a fascinating period for the arts. It is highly ambiguous, all about light and shadow, wild and haunted by death, " he says.

I think the structure and tailoring of the garments, along with the play of colours make Matthieu Thouvenot one to keep an eye on.
