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

    Dries Van Noten always has a special place in my heart!

    The prints are FANTASTIC!

    Wow!! I love the background of the stage but not so much those coats. Coats for bold person.

    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?

  14. Marcel Da Chump

    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

    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.

    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?

    My eyes were more focused on the progression of the painting than on the clothes! Must be the artist in me.

    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!

    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 .

    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!

    Is there a women’s collection? This is amazing, but i would love to see that.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The backgrounds are killer, that touch with paint and the gradient. I think the show behind is much more interesting then the actual fashion.

    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!
