Dries Van Noten’s Prints, The prince of colors renewed with its shimmering, joyful, and perfected fabrics for the next summer season!
Dries Van Noten’s Prints: Colored & Explosive!
“We just really wanted this moment of joy! Festivals and all these things came to our minds. We were looking at those moments when you get out, get with crowds, share emotions, and have fun together—whether it’s going to a pop or rock festival, going to a dodgy little club, or dancing in a discotheque,” declared Dries Van Noten.
In the absence of a physical parade, Dries Van Noten presented his vision of Spring/Summer 2022 in a full-of-emotions film. The film by Albert Moya and a series of photos by Rafael Pavarotti reflect this ecstatic vision where madly sophisticated fabrics are adorned with shimmering shades, appear on garments that are as inspiring and impeccably executed as ever!
“We did all kinds of crazy experiments—handmade smocking, fluffy things, jacquards, silks. Different types of sparkle—different shine, depths of glimmer. All this stuff,” says Dries Van Noten again.
Swirling and invigorating, these silhouettes showed the emblematic signature prints of the Antwerp house, and this has been since the 90s. Dries Van Noten prints cast in vivid pigments dressing women with measured exuberance.
Being as sophisticated as possible, the silhouettes reveal the couture technics that give life to garments, which are airy, vaporous… From balloon sleeves to lovely coats, Dries Van Noten marks with the signature a lively, free, and sometimes psychedelic look.
“Visual fireworks” to cite words of the prince of colors!
