One of the Antwerp 6, Dries Van Noten is not a designer that craves the spotlight, opting instead to remain quietly confident and allowing his genius creations to speak for themselves.
Dries Van Noten’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection offers a timeless kind of elegance: brilliant colours, truly captivating florals, Japanese-inspired fabrics… The look of the season epitomises the designer’s artistic approach to fashion design deliciously. Through fluid dresses finished with poetic accents, floaty skirts and kimono-esque coats, fishnet tops and shimmering bomber jackets, Dries Van Noten achieves somewhat of a mashup of couture classicism and a more casual, even urban aesthetic.
In 1986, after graduating from the Fashion Design course at Antwerp’s Royal Academy, Dries Van Noten found instant success producing his own line of shirts, trousers and blazers that were immediately bought by the likes of Barneys New York, Pauw in Amsterdam and Whistles London. Decades later Dries Van Noten continues to be one of the most highly regarded fashion designers in the world, celebrated for his intelligent designs and unique fashion sensibility. Season after season, the Dries Van Noten show accrues critical acclaim for its cerebral profoundness, along with a real buzz among its die-hard fans. The Dries look is definitely distinct: the colours are always delicious, the cuts are consistently innovative, and the overall result is constantly at the top of our wish list.
