This is possibly our very favourite collection of the whole season (and AW18 is awash with very strong collections). Victoria, not known for extravagance in the world of personal orders, has earmarked at least five pieces. Lucy is not far behind. Bellerose’s designer, Laeticia van Gindertael (read our interview) was granted access to the archives of 1950s and 60s Belgian graphic designer and illustrator Lucien de Roeck. His work, particularly his palette and bold shapes, becomes the central theme of the collection. If this sounds too conceptual, fear not. Signature leopard prints, stripes and polka dots all feature.
Bellerose are Belgian. The label started with a line of men's shirts in 1989, the first shirt named after a small town in the States. Womenswear launched in 1998 and the American references remain current.
Autumn '18 collection is now available in store and online.
