Dries Van Noten's creations are those of rare beauty. His vision is being celebrated in an exhibition in Paris at the Musee des Arts Decoratif entitled Dries Van Noten: Inspirations. The exhibition opened one month ago and will run through August 31st. Here is an excerpt of the write up about the exhibition:
...As Dries Van Noten takes us on an intimate journey into his artistic universe, he reveals the singularity of his creative process which he illustrates with his various and numerous sources of inspiration. ... The show also includes photographs and videos, film clips, musical references, as well as artworks by renowned artists ... that have triggered the designer’s imagination throughout his life and career.
For those unable to make it to Paris for the exhibit, the designer also partnered with Barneys New York and filmmaker Andrew Zuckerman to bring his vision to the flagship Barneys New York on Madison Avenue. Here are some of the images from the installation on Madison Avenue.
