Weinsanto Spring Summer 2022 at Paris Fashion Week
For his Spring/Summer 22 collection, Weinsanto is inspired by his Alsatian roots. The traditional headdresses of the region become Couture gowns, and the customary Alsatian facades inspire the shapes of the clothes. The Kelsh of Alsace, a traditional checkered linen and cotton textile is revisited in pink and purple, the designer’s fetish colours. Weinsanto also collaborated with illustrator Clement Louis for this season’s print, featuring Queentoide, Weinsanto’s muse.
In this collection Weinsanto’s technique and attention to detail are omnipresent, including corsetry, re-worked and improved with new processes to give lightness to otherwise imposing and seemingly heavy volumes. Weinsanto remains faithful to his style in the creation of accessories, the bag of the season is inspired by the Alsatian dessert Kougelhof, revisited in oversized dimensions.
This new collection is a tribute to his origins and his childhood, a perfect blend of the Weinsanto universe, his love for performance arts and festivities as well as his roots.
Victor Weinsanto, whose namesake line launched in 2020, trained at Atelier Chardon Savard Paris and has worked at Y/Project, Maxime Simoens and Chloé. He credits two years of working with Jean Paul Gaultier as his most formative experience in the fashion industry. His training as a dancer imbued him with love of performing arts and brought cabaret themes and joyful spirit to his presentations.
