Just too sad to even comment on this....he's such a brilliant constructivist and started so many design directions....and then I wandered over to the Zac Posen thread and i just can't understand WHY....this tackiest of dressing still sells.

Excellent news!

Two-year break! Now, Bruno Pieters, a former creative director of Hugo, back in action - more precisely, for the fashion label Weekday. After the rest period it is the first project for the Belgian fashion before he wants to immerse the end of the year with a line under his own name back in the fashion world.

The collaboration of Bruno Pieters and Weekday provides for a magical start. The collection is dominated by modern elegance and simple cuts and made of wool, cotton, modal and fixed in rich colors. As the Belgians declared his designs: "I work instinctively. For this collection, I wanted an elongated and narrow silhouette with soft contrast and natural materials. I feel closely connected with architecture, as well as an unpredictable force of nature. "

It might almost be called his comeback fashion, is a worldwide from late October Weekday-stores and via the online site to have. The tops can be had from € 40, coats from 200 €.

Ahh I was just wondering about him the other day.. it's so incredible, you rarely hear about real/solid comebacks after financial struggles when it comes to designers, really happy for him and obviously looking forward to his new line..

Nice that he makes a return, not so nice to consider that it will likely result in clothes with even worse quality materials and finishing than his own line already was :/ ... Hugo gave him a good platform to realize the same (or even better) degree of quality as his own lime, which partially accounted to the reason why his own label suffered during his double-duty... with Weekday backing this collaboration, I can't imagine how his clean line would translate well. I am having my doubts...

Unfortunately, it appears that the line will only be in stores (from 14th October) and stores are only in Scandinavia and Germany
I'll book an appointment with ebay in about a year's time.

well- that coat looks good anyway...
:p...

i really didn;t realize that he was working at hugo boss...
seems like an odd match--
i always think of his stuff as soft and romantic- with an edge...
while hugo boss is all clean classic tailoring...
hmmm...
or maybe i am mixing him up with robert cary-williams...

well- this is all very interesting and i really do wish him the best...
he's always done good work, imo...

Ah, this is a nice surprise. I have never bought anything from Weekday, as it's not really my style. But the store is in my town and I love Pieter's earlier work so I hope to see something nice.

weekday is apparently derived from the design collective who created the brand cheap monday. the latter which ann-sofie back designs for too. interesting collaborations.

and for his first foray back on the scene i'm okay with this. it's an experiment. it's cheap and easy for sure but it does appear to still have his identity encapsulated around it.
