A Flag Stripes and a Guy in Green Overalls collection by menswear designer Dewi Bekker
“Dewi Bekker is a Dutch menswear designer based in The Hague, The Netherlands. As a designer she is having a playful view on menswear. It is her goal to find an ultimate balance between humor, the everyday life and fantasy. This results in an imaginative universe of primary colors, plastics and classic menswear. During her quest she does research on myths and alter egos, which includes Bolivian medicine men, superheroes, traditional European festivities and James Bond.
In 2013 she graduated at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. During her studies she did internships at Bernhard Willhelm and Hannes Kettritz.
She is also part of design collective Das Leben am Haverkamp. The collective Das Leben am Haverkamp is formed by four young fashion designers – Anouk van Klaveren, Christa van der Meer, Dewi Bekker and Gino Anthonisse. All the members have their individual label, and present it collectively. Together they create the novel context necessary for their unrestricted way of working and thinking.”
