Dries Van Noten

True to his roots

'I don't want to make fashion because fashion for me can be good one moment but not the next,' says Dries Van Noten, in his Parisian showroom, a former art gallery in the heart of the historic Le Marais district. 'I just want to make beautiful clothes that people like to wear but can do so in a fashionable way.'

Amazing collection is one for the books

Her three-bedroom flat is filled with an amazing array of Hermes loot, Dries Van Noten garments, Givenchy shoes, vintage Chinese jewellery, hats in all shapes, styles and colours, and antique dolls.
