ABOUT DRIES VAN NOTEN
Born in Antwerp in 1958, Dries Van Noten hails from a family of tailors and entered the fashion design course of Antwerp’s Royal Academy at the age of 18. Following graduation, the designer launched his own collection of menswear in 1986, which garnered a positive reaction almost immediately. Orders were placed by prestigious customers worldwide, and the designer hasn’t looked back since.
Throughout the span of his career, Van Noten has received a multitude of awards for his inimitable designs for both men and women. His signature style embraces a more-is-more ethos, with an endless parade of prints managing to be as covetable as they are wearable.
