FASHION LOVE >>> Dries Van Noten

I love the mix of colour and pattern in the Dries Van Noton SS15 collection alongside the combination of both masculine and feminine cut to the clothing.
Born in Antwerp in 1958, Dries Van Noten is the third generation in a family of tailors. Between the two world wars, his grandfather reworked second-hand clothes by turning them inside out and introduced Antwerp to the concept of ready-to-wear. In 1970 Dries’ father opened a large upscale fashion boutique in the outskirts of Antwerp followed by a second outlet in the city centre where he sold collections by Ungaro, Ferragamo and Zegna. At the same time, his mother ran a Cassandre franchised store and collected antique lace and linen. This upbringing in evident in the designs Dries creates today.
