In an Interview Dries Van Noten was once asked its he would consider doing a collaboration with H&M, like some of his colleagues. He answered with a powerful statement that he wouldn't know how to execute something like that, because his zippers or embroidery cost him more in the production process than the retail price of an H&M Jacket costs. This shows how particular Dries' is with the quality of his garments and why he is definitely one of the greatest of our time.
Dries Van Noten’s acclaimed SS17 Collection featured some of the most fascinating tapestry and patchwork garments of the designers portfolio.
„All those palettes and embroideries that we used in the past I didn’t want to use, so I tried to find new elements in volumes, in shapes, and in putting fabrics together. So I looked a lot at fabric art, to textile artists who were very active in the ’60s and ’70s and in whom there is now a new interest.”
