His colors are something magic. I can stay here, in front of my PC, and look them forever. Incantevole.

Love how soft the deep teal sweater looks! Beautiful show.
January 20, 2012 at 9:56 am
That coat is wild, but I like it!

men clothing back to be elegant as well as “real men” style. loved the runway

I want that fuzzy jumper so badly…lovely backdrop of prints to micic or contrast the pieces, though…
January 20, 2012 at 10:12 am
Wow!! I love the background of the stage but not so much those coats. Coats for bold person.
January 20, 2012 at 10:17 am
oooh really !!!!?!?!? with those man painting at the background! how awesome! love the green jumper!
January 20, 2012 at 10:40 am
Love the coat on the second photo ! As a belgian I really see him as a designer to be proud of, eventhough these looks are not how I’d like to see a man dress. Curious to see the women’s collection

a great selection of prints, quite similar to the Moschino ones insofar as they have a very graphic quality to them, almost like comics….

The hand painted type is amazing too! Any chance you took some photos of the finished wall?

The words and artwork on the wall made me curious about the collection’s inspiration. The drawings represent the inside of Frank Zappa’s mind on acid. And the words are from Oscar Wilde’s THE HAPPY PRINCE:http://fiction.eserver.org/short/happy_prince.html

Belli stilosi i cappotti a fantasie varie!

was this a dress rehearsal for the show or the real show? I preferred the photos without the mural painters (even where the wall was unfinished). I was getting distracted by how the painters’ brushes had these interesting ombre effects.
part of me tries to stay away from prints because they can be trendy (less budget friendly) but I guess if you find something you really love, it can become your signature.
I liked the color of the green (teal) furry coat. it felt subdued enough not to be overly rocker.

The very serious idiocy after Prada’s Frankenstein collection, with the exception of William Dafoe, continues.

Can men out there relate to this???????????

hourah for “our” fantastic DRIES!!
January 20, 2012 at 12:31 pm
Looks like the style direction for men is loud and clear. What a wonderful presentation -love the mural/graffitti-esque painting going on -sort of perfect for our times don’t you think?
January 20, 2012 at 12:43 pm
My eyes were more focused on the progression of the painting than on the clothes! Must be the artist in me.
January 20, 2012 at 12:45 pm
Beautiful and stylish as always.

Really love this collection
January 20, 2012 at 1:21 pm
The caligraphy is the original work of the also performing young Dutch typographic artist and designer Job Wouters, based in Amsterdam. Certainly a stunning clash of styles!
January 20, 2012 at 1:49 pm
These prints are a bit like urban camouflage ! … like Robert Downey junior in the new Sherlock Holmes… lol….
Having said this I would wear them in a heartbeat .

January 21, 2012 at 2:19 am
FINALLY! A wonderful fit, and a creative look! I LOVE IT that this one show doesn’t leave me wanting to yell “pull up your pants!” ( YES, I DID hate D squared) NOW thats how a suit should look!!!!
January 21, 2012 at 4:18 am
His designs are always great!! Can’t wait for the women’s collection :)

January 21, 2012 at 9:15 am
This is amazing! love both the clothing as well as the art work. Such a cool way of handling the brushes and colors. And love for the ‘Dries van ‘Noten’ patterns/prints.

Dries is the best! As a belgian myself, I’m very proud we have that much talent in such a small country:)
January 21, 2012 at 11:03 am
Yay, I finally made it on TheSartorialist!!!!
January 22, 2012 at 3:56 am
the collaboration between art, graphic design and fashion is extraordinarily GOOD!
much credit for dries van Noten, but also for the dutch artist Gijs Frieling (landscape prints) and graphic designs of Job Wouters!
January 22, 2012 at 9:39 am
The artwork behind is AMAZING! i kept trying to focus on the clothes but i just couldn’t take my eyes off the artists behind! Thank you for sharing that with us!
January 22, 2012 at 2:24 pm
Prints are amazing!
January 22, 2012 at 5:31 pm
What a great concept for a show, the appeal of a work in progress :)
January 23, 2012 at 1:22 am
Is there a women’s collection? This is amazing, but i would love to see that.
January 23, 2012 at 1:35 am
Someone needs to tell those painters that there’s fashion happening and that they should be careful not to splash any paint on the clothing.
January 23, 2012 at 2:18 am
Thats was a very great show !
January 23, 2012 at 3:51 am
really, i’ve never liked very much Dries Van Noten. This collection confirms it.
January 23, 2012 at 10:24 am
I love the set!!!

Love the slacks and the tailoring.
Prints are another sell all together. Sort of like ties, they’re very personal and can date quickly. I prefer the prints on the casual, short jacket, not so much on the coats.

beautiful work…as always.
January 25, 2012 at 6:37 pm
It never fails to amaze me how and where these designers take there inspiration from. I am and have been a big fan of DVN as a designer for years.
I really think you should have a look at a an artist called, Kirstin Bratsch, who is particularly hot right now in the European Fine art world. I am sure anyone will be able to see the resemblance immediately, especially the patterning and paint slide style.
This is not a bad thing. I am particularly pleased that designers have and will continue to reference contemporary fine art to inspire their collections. In conjunction these elements help to change the way millions view and accept the possibilities of the “new”. It has and always will be a significant working relationship between the two worlds.
January 25, 2012 at 6:54 pm
the mural is amazing, was this a run through or the real runway?
January 31, 2012 at 11:38 pm
cannot stop staring at those mural and the first coat. genius pattern! I heart Dries Van Noten!
February 4, 2012 at 2:38 pm
Creative runway! I like this fashion show!
February 13, 2012 at 11:27 pm
The backgrounds are killer, that touch with paint and the gradient. I think the show behind is much more interesting then the actual fashion.
February 25, 2012 at 6:06 am
Can anyone please tell me what shoes the models are wearing in the first and second photo? And the first model in the last photo? An answer will be much appreciated!
