Part of the Antwerp Six, avant-garde Dries van Noten is famous for structured apparel with floral accents and art inspired prints. Unbeknownst to many this Beligian started off as a menswear designer. The opening of his first men’s-only store is a tribute to these roots.
The luxurious rufous, ten-coat, lacquered-wood walls date back to 1975 and previously housed a gallery of Primitive Art. The walls have been preserved and now the Seine-ward facing , 1, 076 square-foot space is a picture perfect backdrop for all things Dries.
With the unveiling of the store also debuted an evening collection exclusively sold here as well as a small edit of one-of-a-kind accessories.
Artwork from van Noten’s own collection hangs in the space.
