25/30 Van Noten: Talent Extraordinaire

September 25, 2013

Van Noten is one of these rare talents who are capable of delivering an equally sartorial masterpiece and gain credibility in both mens and womenswear. As usual, his show today was a perfect redefinition of what an homage to folklore should be like. Following the undisputably aesthetic vision he showcased back in July for men, his mood is all about a dark romance that only prints and ethnic vibes can capture, always in the most effortlessy modern of ways. Once again, his taste in selection of prints and juxtaposition of ever luxurious materials is always a pleasure to watch. The main difference with the majority of his homologues is that, just like the woman he dresses, he is not necessarily putting on a show. Instead, he is the living proof that real craftmanship and artistic vision doens’t always demand the loudest of PR stunts. After all, It is not by coincidence that his body of work will be presented the upcoming year in the Arts Decoratifs.
