Christian Wijnants set out on an imaginary trip to “mythical, magical” Persia. The summery collection stood out for its refined prints centered around arabesques and florals, some based on hand-painted ceramics.

A plumped-up knitwear section included architectural, seamless tubular knits.

The designer in his easy silhouettes mixed jacquard wovens and knits, with among the highlights silk elements in a blurry, 3-D floral print and a pretty floral dress with gathering details and an asymmetric irregular hemline. “I like when a design looks almost like a sketch,” said Wijnants.

Lending a more casual, masculine tone were the checked shirts in wintry tones and minimalist denim pieces.
