La Belgique C'est Chique

Ghent really is a hot pocket for budding designers and design aficionados, and I love featuring those young up-and-comers on the site because who knows what role they will end up playing in the future? 
Today I'm talking about a handsome fellow who goes by the pseudonym Pierre √Člitaire. He's a Belgian design student who is currently living and studying in Rotterdam. Studying abroad in Norway and France, he has already garnered plenty of critical acclaim for his designs, won the Design And Design Award for his Plastic Dandy Chair, which was also featured by Kanye West. Now he is venturing into fashion design, check it out:
