The Antwerp Gardener
In and exclusive interview, illustrious Belgian designer Dries Van Noten takes us back to ‘80s Antwerp:
”It was the early ‘80s and we were thinking, as a group of fashion designers from Antwerp, to do our own collections… there was no internet, there was no computer – so fashion could come from unexpected countries.”

“The little boat seen beached upon the shore is of a build peculiar to Japan, and recalls the restrictions which for so many generations were imposed on the construction of all seagoing craft in the country.”
