Belgian designer Jan-Jan Van Essche presents his new men's and women's wear collection following the thread of "the human collective".

For Belgian fashion designer Jan-Jan Van Essche, Spring/Summer 23 is a season for human renewal always in simplicity and with fluidity.

About Jan-Jan Van Essche's S/S23 Collection

Jan-Jan Van Essche imagines who wears his pieces as humble souls and he dresses them in equally humble garments. Humble in the neutral and calming colour except for splashes of blue; generous in the ample silhouettes. The Spring/Summer 23 Collection has liquid lines for a gender-fluid style.

About the Designer: Jan-Jan Van Essche

Jan-Jan Van Essche was born in the technological city of Antwerp, Belgium, where he has his design studio. He graduated in 2003 from the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts, and he launched his eponymous label in June 2010. His collections are wardrobes numbered in order and all with a meaningful name. The first line, Collection#1, was Yukkuri which means "Take it easy" or "Slowly" in Japanese.

About Jan-Jan Van Essche's Inspiration: The Human Collective

The human collective culture remains an endless inspiration for Jan-Jan Van Essche to create new garments with each new design a genuine attempt to open up new perspectives and to push conflicting dialogues forward into unification.

Traditional patterns from different cultures and backgrounds are studied with care and respect, then interpreted in Jan-Jan's own language and simplicity with as less seams as possible for maximal comfort.

The conventional silhouette is amplified, so that each individual garment literally leaves room for interpretation, engendering openness. Unlike the classic Western approach to confining and shaping the body, Jan-Jan provides the body with the luxury and freedom to shape the garment.

Jan-Jan Van Essche continuously aims to develop new insights on contemporary yet effortless male and genderless elegance. You can discover his yearly wardrobes online.
