Dirk Van Saene: Wilma Cup

There’s nothing I love more than my morning routine. On a good day, it includes 6am yoga but most of the time, I just enjoy a cup of coffee and catch up on laundry or organizing my apartment (I seriously can’t lift a finger when I get home from work). I’ve had my eye on these incredibly cool mugs for sometime now and my friend, Molly, surprised me with a pretty blue one on my birthday. Drinking coffee just got way more fun.


A little bit about the artist, Dirk Van Saene:

Dirk Van Saene is a fashion designer, artist and instructor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp. Van Saene began selling his designs in his Antwerp shop, Beauties and Heroes, in 1981. Two years after opening the shop, he won the gold medal at Belgium’s prestigious Gouden Spoel contest. Four years later, he presented his collection in London as a member of the “Antwerp Six”, along with Walter Van Beirendonck, Dirk Bikkembergs, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten and Marina Yee. Van Saene has enjoyed wide recognition, and is cited as a formative inspiration to a generation of younger designers. He maintains a small company and scale of production, distributed through a limited selection of shops worldwide. Van Saene lives and works in Antwerp.
