DRIES VAN NOTEN & CHRISTIAN LACROIX : A MEETING OF MINDS

Dries Van Noten partners with Christian Lacroix for Spring / Summer 2020 Womens collection. The resultant collection is not a collaboration – rather a meeting of minds, an expression of dual intention and respect, a romance if you will – between Dries and Christian, and in turn between both of them and fashion.

Their accomplishment was captured in a film directed by fashion’s preeminent documentarian Loïc Prigent.

Amongst fashion’s most potent forces is an ability to make people dream, to inject optimism, fantasy and wit into the world.

Dries Van Noten has enriched with his expansive imagination and artful eye, evoking a sense of joy through experiential and inspirational shows and extraordinary clothes. His kindred spirit is found in the French couturier Mr. Christian Lacroix, who always used the medium of fashion to delight.

The plot was hatched naturally and at the very start of the season, I found myself needing exuberance, opulence, another volume and fun! I was constantly drawn to the Eighties and Nineties, to a love of dressing up, to couture, to beauty, to audacity – to joy. I quickly realised that all roads seemed to lead to the work and world of Mr. Christian Lacroix. So, after little deliberation, I thought why not just phone him, why not phone Christian and ask if he would be up for the challenge and enjoy working with me on a collection. I was so happy when he immediately said: yes.”

– Dries Van Noten, Antwerp, September 2019

In March this year, Dries Van Noten and Monsieur Lacroix sat down for an in-depth discussion on their partnership and the resulting body of work.

“Knowing that Christian was there, the fact that we could have the help of Christian to make this collection was so inspiring for us,” Dries says. “It gave us the creative freedom to think: okay let’s have big shapes, let’s have big colours, big prints. A little bigger, a little brighter? Why not? Why not?”
