Dün Beymen'de her birine dokunup, hülyalı hülyalı seyrettiğim Dries Van Noten parçalar, sezonun 'istiyorummm' listesindeler. Van Noten'ın suluboya paletini eline alıp "Şuraya biraz hardal sarısı buraya bir parça leylak moru. Az kalsın şeftali somonunu unutuyordum" diyerek renklendirdiğini düşündüğüm bu enfes tasarımlarında retro bir hava seziliyor. Ancak, yine de son derece modern ve cool bir görünüm vadediyorlar.
Fall's wish list
Belçikalı tasarımcının The Moment'taki röportajından bir demet aşağıda. İkinci soruya verdiği cevaba özellikle dikkat.
Yours is a very personal view of contemporary glamour. Can you articulate for me what that vision is?
It’s a very personal way of dressing. I don’t like to create head-to-toe outfits. I prefer to make garments for people to wear in lots of different ways. It’s important that they can make the clothes their own and wear them in any way they want to express what they want to say about themselves.
Before I let you go, part of the fun of going to your show is wondering what part of the world you’re going to take the audience to as there are always so many multi-culti references. Do you actually travel that much or are they the result of flights of fancy?
I travel in my mind. I don’t think you have to travel to be inspired. On the contrary, I think it would kill inspiration when you travel too much to countries that inspire you. Sometimes for me it’s more important for me to find one little picture of a flower in a hand or a jewel or whatever — the rest I can dream about. It’s the little sparkle that lights the fire of inspiration that’s important, not where you find it.
