I'm not going to feign familiarity with fashion designer Dirk Bikkembergs. I don't even remember how I came across his website. But, it definitely drew me in once I saw the outfit above. His label is a blend of couture and sportswear, or, "Sportswear couture." His newest line includes a play on French gendarmerie, executed with a dose of "healthy irreverence."

I did a little wiki'ing before I posted and learned that Bikkembergs is a Belgian designer who was once part of a group of "influential avant garde fashion designers" called the Antwerp Six.
