One to watch from the wacky Belgian tribe is Jean-Paul Lespagnard. In his sport luxe romp, he reworked basketball uniforms into elegant garb inspired, according to the show notes, by a fantasy dinner he imagined for basketball players at Hearst Castle in California. There were chic wide pants made out of tracksuit fabric in a stained glass window-like print composed of photos of basketball stadiums. Oversize shorts were reworked in soft chocolate leather and sweatshirts morphed into elegant kimono jackets. While technically gifted, Lespagnard just can’t resist being a little offbeat.
