STOF is a multidisciplinary platform aiming to create a dynamic space to show and share truly interesting people, culture and fashion. We do this via editorials, articles and more, as long as stories can be told and shared with you.
We also want collections to last as a culture and not only for a season, giving products an afterlife while providing a new spotlight for often-overlooked designers.
STOF works from a perspective of elevating each other, so do reach out if you feel like we could do something interesting together, wether it be fashion, music, art... our doors are open.
On the other hand if you're looking for any vintage pieces in particular, let us know - We might be able to get our hands on it !
We mainly focus on Belgian designers such as Maison Martin Margiela, Raf Simons, Dries Van Noten, A.F. Vandevorst, Ann Demeulemeester and more.
Believe: Walter Van Beirendonck & Wild and Lethal Trash
For his AW98 collection the French artist Orlan was the ‘muse’, who considers her own body as her artistic medium which she subjects to plastic surgery. Like this she presents herself as an ever-changing art object. Her look with two eyecatching facial implants was the departure point for a new look at make-up and beauty.
The book accompanied the exhibition Kiss the Future! and includes Van Beirendonck’s own sketches, reviews of the show from the fashion-critic Suzy Menkes and a captivating shoot by Juergen Teller. For Walter this project was an opportunity to picture his vision of his own clothing. He does not think in periods of a season but instead offers us his futuristic vision.
As always Van Beirendonck succeeds in sharing his wildest fantasies with us and this book is no any different. Up, up and away… KISS THE FUTURE!
