Paris FW: "Couture unfolds" The Manifesto of Peet Dullaert

In the world of haute couture, where beauty is often perceived through a lens of exclusivity and glamour, Peet Dullaert challenges us to redefine what beauty truly means. At the heart of his manifesto lies a profound respect for the human form and a dedication to celebrating diversity in all its forms.

Dullaert's Manifesto:

What is beauty. The question that is the bane of our industry’s existence. I believe it cannot be addressed with only the presentation of the end product on the runway. From the cuts that mold on the body, to embrace it, not claim; my inspiration with the Atelier is rooted in celebration of us people. The creations, crafted by artisanal fabric manipulation, resulting in unique surfaces reinterpret suiting adapted to modern posture trough construction adapted to modern life[1],and flou-tailoring [2]. The exploration of organic shapes and the human anatomy through re-invented techno-pleat designs [3] is what the collection speaks to. The myriad of human silhouettes. Each of them, entirely shaped and sewn by hand. "Cousu main": a needle, a thread, creation without the use of a machine. Such creation is greatly personal at the base of it all, and inspired by the lives of the diverse group of individuals around me, the generations that inspire and teach me. And so, our inspiration at the Atelier is rooted in this celebration of people, and the myriad of their human silhouettes, that has been a guiding architect.


Reflection on life in this digital age. Silhouettes emerging from a storm, to honour resilience and movement of the body. You are meant to live in our clothes, to be : free. - Peet Dullaert

"What is beauty?" This question, as old as time itself, serves as the guiding light for Peet Dullaert's Atelier. For him, beauty transcends mere appearances; it is intricately woven into the very fabric of human existence. His creations are not just garments; they are reflections of the myriad human silhouettes that inspire and shape his designs. At the core of Peet Dullaert's philosophy is a commitment to craftsmanship and innovation. Each garment is a testament to artisanal skill, meticulously crafted by hand to ensure a perfect fit that embraces, rather than confines, the wearer. This dedication is exemplified in his signature techniques such as the PEET DULLAERT Signature Suiting and Techno Pleating. The former, with its dynamic cuts and fluid lines, allows for unrestricted movement, tailored for the demands of modern life. Meanwhile, Techno Pleating transforms fabric into organic shapes that contour to the body, ensuring both comfort and elegance.

In his pursuit of sustainable luxury, Peet Dullaert partners with TENCEL™, a testament to his commitment to environmental responsibility. Through this collaboration, he explores innovative ways to incorporate sustainable fabrics like TENCEL™ LUXE into his collections, offering conscious consumers a luxurious alternative that aligns with their values. Beyond aesthetics and craftsmanship, Peet Dullaert champions a holistic approach to fashion. His manifesto extends to ethical production practices and a profound respect for the environment. From a made-to-order production cycle that minimizes waste to carbon-neutral shipping and recyclable packaging, every aspect of his operations reflects a deep-seated commitment to sustainability.

Moreover, Peet Dullaert's dedication to social responsibility extends beyond fashion. With every purchase, a portion of proceeds supports initiatives such as carbon removal, ocean cleanup efforts, tree planting in the Amazon rainforest, and supporting impoverished families through sustainable agriculture. This commitment not only enhances the brand's impact but also underscores its role in fostering positive change. At its essence, Peet Dullaert's Atelier is more than a fashion house; it is a beacon of inclusivity, sustainability, and innovation. Through his designs, he invites us to embrace our individuality and celebrate the beauty of diversity. Each creation tells a story of resilience, movement, and the timeless elegance that comes from honoring the human spirit.

In a world where fashion often dictates conformity, Peet Dullaert's manifesto stands as a testament to the transformative power of artistry and humanity. It challenges us to redefine beauty not as a fleeting trend, but as a timeless expression of the richness found within each of us.
