On May 18, Duncan Laurence will perform during the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Duncan will appear on stage in a vintage outfit from Dutch designer Sjaak Hullekes. Clothing from Hul le Kes is known for the infinite life cycle, one full of stories, change and character.
Especially for Duncan Laurence, Sjaak Hullekes has made a fitting design from a coat of antique French linen that is more than 100 years old and literally has been given a new look. The cotton trousers and linen shirt are made from 'left-over' fabrics that are therefore also durable. The composition of different sheets ensures that a slight colour difference occurs during the colouring process, which provides a special effect. All items, made in the Netherlands at Studio RYN, are specially dyed by hand for Duncan.
The point of the designer is not to strive for perfection, the imperfection is precisely what makes clothing characteristic and interesting.
"The vulnerability that is in 'Arcade' is strongly on the edge in my collections," says Sjaak Hullekes.
