Book of the week: Dries Van Noten 1-100
Dries Van Noten celebrated his 100th fashion show at Paris Fashion Week in March. Now the designer is commemorating his achievement with a two-part tomb. The books, aptly titled Dries Van Noten 1-50 and Dries Van Noten 51-100, chart the Belgian creative's fashionable career behind one of the world's most recognised luxury fashion brands — a vision that is also being turned into the silver screen feature film, Dries. Each volume will also be complete with excerpts from renowned journalists Susannah Frankel and Tim Blanks.
Speaking about the books, Van Noten says: "I like the idea that this commemorates my past so that I may just focus on the future and further evolving as a designer from now. I originally published a book to commemorate my 50th show and so it came naturally to also do so for the 100th. It is exciting having all the shows in this special object, being able to remember, read and understand the context and inspiration of a show through texts and pictures, not only about the show itself but also on everything surrounding it."
Dries Van Noten 1-50 and Dries Van Noten 51-100 will be available from October 1, separately and together in a limited-edition slipcase. Also don't miss Buro 24/7's exclusive interview with Dries Van Noten.
