Dries Van Noten

Born in Antwerp in 1958, Dries Van Noten is the third generation in a family of tailors. At the age of 18, Dries entered the fashion design course of Antwerp’s Royal Academy. On graduating, he began to freelance as a consultant designer before starting his own collection of menswear in 1986. Positive reaction was almost immediate with orders placed by prestigious customers like Barneys New York, Pauw in Amsterdam and Whistles in London. In September of the same year Dries opened a tiny eponymous boutique in Antwerp’s gallery arcade only to move in 1989 to ‘Het Modepalais’ a fivestorey former department store in the Nationalestraat which remains today. Since its beginnings Dries Van Noten has presented collections for women and men for Spring/Summer and
Autumn/Winter each year.

We’ve added a new brand to our selection starting SS19. Dries Van Noten is now available in store with it’s first SS19 pieces. With this collection Dries Van Noten celebrates a creative partnership with the estate of Danish architect and designer, Verner Panton.

The SS19 collection is created in collaboration with the Panton family granting a rare permission to use and adapt the scale and colourways of his designs. The collection creates a fusion between the intensity of Panton colour and muted workwear. Colorful aesthetic is used as a fresh take on Dries Van Noten menswear wardrobe.

An explanatory label is sewn into garments details the collaboration that emphasis on a pared down yet elegant masculine silhouette, pushing conceptual codes of the utilitarian, tailoring and sportswear to soften the silhouette.

Welcome to see the new collection in store.
