Dirk van Saene Archives

>> As much as I love trompe l'oeil me thinks Dirk Van Saene's archive pieces with painted legs and bikini tops is a step too far, reminding me of seaside painted boards where you stick your head in a cut out hole to find your body is a moustachiod seafarer or a busty blonde in a bikini. I do love the patchwork denim effect jacket though. These were taken in Walter van Beirendonck's windows.

    ha! very apt analogy. as a counterpoint to these rather overly kitschy trompe l’oeil garments, vena cava did some raunchy oversize tee dresses last season featuring nude female torsos in bondage gear. the effect was more ‘made you look’ and cheeky, less ‘new jersey boardwalk photo op’.

    dirk’s trompe l’oeil,particularly the bow signature,are classic. susie was his 2-D camel pieces on display as well? i remember in 2002 when i visited,walking into walter’s shop and seeing one the coats from that collection. simple shape but it literally stopped me in my tracks.

    I love this guy! I especially like the trompe l’oeil dress with the bow. I don’t find it particularly kitschy, especially since the cut is so subtle and flattering. He did one in pale colors that could be perceived as dainty and precious, but he keeps it one the right side of cool.

    My problem is that he executed in such a boring way. I’d buy a dress like that when it was done with a scifi illustrator or something, not when it’s just an idealized version of female beauty.
