About Xavier Delcour
Xavier Delcour is a Tournai-born designer who graduated from La Cambre Mode(s) in Brussels. His passion for rock culture and night clubbing, exhibited in his black clothing, was unanimously approved by the press and professional circles.
In 1995, he was awarded the prize for the best menswear collection at the European Festival for Young Designers in Hyeres and launched a range of accessories. In september of that year he presented a first men’s collection (Spring/Summer 1996) under his own name.
In his collections, Xavier Delcour is off-the-cuff and elegant. His man may initially seem rational, even conventional. The cut of the suits is rigorous and strict. The principle of a two-colour collection has taken hold season after season: black and pink, black and violet, black and white, black and red…
Xavier Delcour has created a style very much his own, halfway between the black dandy of the eighties and the techno-chic clubber of the nineties. Rhinestones are recurrent, so perfect for the night. This work, ‘ready to swerve into exaggeration and bad taste’, always confronts us with something ‘off-the-cuff’, a strong element of desire and eagerness to please…
In 2003 Xavier presented his first women’s collection harmonising with his men’s styling but providing a new feminine identity. For the ladies he dared what he had never quite dared to do for men.
