Lockdown in your own city is creating an inside reflection for Dries Van Noten. The Belgian designer gives us a tour of his home as we explore the ferris wheel, fountain, Sint-Anna tunnel, and other local sites that merge the past and present in Antwerp. We find the beauty in everyday life in the footsteps of Van Noten postcards in his collection titled “Greetings From Antwerp.” The images have the ’70s vintage Antwerp municipal logo with etchings from two of Flanders’s most famous sons, Breughel and Rubens with permission from the Plantin-Moretus Museum in Antwerp.
“I have always loved my life in Antwerp and enjoyed my choice to base my company in this city. Through my work here I have had the pleasure of reliving Antwerp over again through the lives of the International members of my team who have come to live here with us. With this collection, we see Antwerp through the eyes and photographs of international residents of the city, members of my design team. It is always interesting to see what captivates their attention and how the city we know speaks to them.” Dries Van Noten said. His team took snapshots of the collection from their smartphone photos around the city for three days.
The Antwerp touristic vibe for the menswear collection takes a relaxed volume approach inspired by the lockdown, womenswear, and the color palette in Ruben’s prints. The confidence at ease look features extra elongated sleeves and trouser legs, cargo pant aprons in a bold color range of pinks, camouflage, lime, mocha, orange, turquoise, salmon, and peach. The comfortable yet robust clothing in tailored silk, sportswear mesh, and denim are paired with sandals, loafers, and carrier bags with Flanders prints by Rubens “The Lion Hunt” (1642), “The Hippopotamus and Crocodile Hunt” (1644), and “A Waggon Fording a Stream” (1638).
