“Dirk Bikkemberg chose an old wooden building that is usually used as a leather goods market (carreau) as his venue. However, when Dirk himself carefully checked his clothes, the atmosphere was so tense that he hesitated having the camera pointed at him. The theme of the show was "Easy Rider". Stretch, leather, metallic, and other skin-perfect materials were used to create a three-hole motif based on the design of a Ferrari steering wheel, while the sole of the shoes was a flame-spewing wheel, and the orange switches on the sleeves were airbags. By casting fearless models with well-built bodies, the collection translated the speedy world of motorsports into mode. On the bottom right of the page, designer Dirk Bikkembergs checks the clothes worn by the models.”
