Born in Koln in 1959 and part of the infamous “Antwerp Six” group, Dirk Bikkembergs is the father of Sport Couture. Intersection between fashion and sport, this trend had been created on site by Bikkemberg himself who, for a certain period of time, was president of a small football club near Pesaro. Tested directly on athletes and made of futuristic materials, amazing colors shades, extreme functionality, his fashion experience remains something unique and never seen before. From exclusive jackets to high-performance underwear and sporty street shoes, Bikkembergs has dedicated his entire designer’s life to a movement focused on masculine beauty, a branch that, commercially speaking, is often considered not interesting from fashion houses. To celebrate 25 years of uniqueness, good looking in shape men, sport games and sexiness, Rizzoli has published this precious book that contains designer’s historical pieces re-shooted in marvelous locations around the globe but also an historical profile and some vintage moments. Ideally made for male’s body perfection admirers and suitable for those who believe fashion, and sometime a beau, can play together on a soccer field.
