Dries van Noten (BE). "The grandson of a garment maker, Dries van Noten presented his first menswear collection in London in 1980 as part of the famous ‘Antwerp Six’ collective that made Belgium an epicentre of avant-garde fashion. While fellow designers of his generation sold their labels to investors or just gave up, Dries van Noten remained authentic and financially independent as the only owner of his brand. As the new world order started shaking, the Belgian refashioned the clay without losing his characteristic talent for combining a remarkable sense for fabrics and a subtle feel for idiosyncratic colours, with distinctive layering of prints and ethnic elements like embroidery." - Kai von Rabenau (mono.kultur #20)
