Hailed as an icon of the Antwerp scene and one of the original "Antwerp Six", for those familiar with sleek Belgian style, Dries Van Noten is a designer who needs no introduction.
As a child, Dries' father opened Antwerp’s first boutique and the two would travel to various shows in Milan, Dusseldorf and Paris which taught him the commercial side of the profession. Through working with his father, Dries soon realised he was more interested in design than retail.
Van Noten's seasonal collections reflect a balance of the eccentric designer's own values. Expect to see subtle cultural and philosophical references worked into clean cut collections that exude both style and modesty.
