Bernhard Willhelm’s world, devoid of any cynical calculation, a subtle blend of poetic and banal references with a new and highly coloured stylistic and graphic register, soon drew the attention of the press and purchasers. In 2000 he launched his first men’s collection, and in 2002 he decided to transfer his workshops from Antwerp to Paris. In the same year he was also appointed artistic director of the Italian brand Capucci and guest editor of B, the second issue of the avant-garde journal ABC, published in Antwerp.

Willhelm has received numerous awards for his unusual, provocative approach to fashion. In 2001 he won the Moët & Chandon Fashion Award, and in 2005 he received the ANDAM (Association Nationale pour le Développement des Arts et de la Mode) accessory prize from the French Minister of Culture.
