    Default NEW : DIRK by Dirk Bikkembergs - My thoughts

    What's up guys?

    So DIRK by Dirk Bikkembergs was a blind buy for me, couldn't sample it but heard it's a cross between invictus and Fierce By Abercrombie & Fitch.

    The first fragrance from this house. Yes It's a cross between invictus and ABERCROMBIE & FITCH FIERCE. Great scent and gorgeous bottle! BUT...
    I wouldn't recommend to buy Dirk by Dirk Bikkembergs! Not worth it! Longevity is below average, 3 hours max (the scent is very close to the skin). Projection none and zero sillage. Don't waste your money on this one!

    Funny I just bought some Dirk Bikkemberg shoes a few weeks ago which I really like. Hadn't heard of him until I saw them.

    Biography from Dutch Wiki (translation: Google)

    Dirk Bikkembergs (Cologne, January 2, 1959) is a Belgian fashion designer. He is one of the so-called Antwerp Six.

    Biography [edit]
    Bikkembergs lived a short time in Germany as the son of a soldier stationed in Germany. He spent his youth almost completely in Diepenbeek, Limburg, Belgium. Bikkembergs graduated in 1982 at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts, better known as the Antwerp Fashion Academy.
    In 1986, he impressed with his first collection of men's shoes in militaristic style. In 1989 he came up with men's clothing, and in 1993 it came to women's clothing.

    Bikkembergs was known because he is on his fashion shows professional footballers used as models, such as Gilles de Bilde. The link with sport, especially football, later became even closer. In 2000 he created a sports line 'Bikkembergs Sport "with the logo silhouette of a football player. In 2003 he became the official designer for the football club Inter Milan. In 2005, he even became owner and sole sponsor of the amateur team who was called from that moment FC Bikkembergs Fossombrone and played only in equipment designed by him. The choice of a small team rather than a top team was deliberately to emphasize that Bikkembergs Sport "is for everyone," as Bikkembergs expressed needs.

    He was the first fashion designer who was given permission to hold a fashion show at the famous Camp Nou stadium of FC Barcelona.

    In 2004, Bikkembergs received the Italian Oscar della Moda as the best international fashion designer.

    In 2006 he introduced as part of a new football Collection Bix made a football boot from kangaroo leather, the material that was originally used for soccer. The shoes are exclusively via the Internet site Bikkembergs Football for sale.
