Vandaag gezien de expositie Dries Van Noten Inspirations . Groots overzicht van kledingcollecties en inspiratiebronnen van deze ontwerper bekend van de Zes van Antwerpen. Parijs: Musee Les Arts Decoratifs, 107 Rue de Rivoli. Metro: Palais Royal, verlengd tot 2 november 2014.

Zijde, heel veel prachtige zijde, om je hart aan op te halen! Ook spectaculaire ( oudere) stukken uit collecties van o.a. Dior, Balenciaga, Thierry Mugler worden geëxposeerd.

Zelf ook inspiratie opgedaan van Dries. Kledingstukken met een geprint dessin gedeeltelijk overschilderen met ferme penseelstreken in diepe kleuren, een spannende uitdaging!
Ik ga zeker iets ouds van bedrukte zijde uit mijn kast halen en zo upcyclen, om die term maar eens te gebruiken.
Als het me gelukt is deel ik het zeker met jullie op mijn blog, beloofd!

The work of the belgian fashion designer, Dries Van Noten, is featured at the musée des Arts décoratifs in Paris. This is the very first exhibition devoted to the artist’s work. As Dries Van Noten takes us on an intimate journey into his artistic universe, he reveals the singularity of his creative process which he illustrates with his various and numerous sources of inspiration. This event is an eye opening experience, where Dries Van Noten’s men’s and women’s collections are put together with iconic pieces from the museum’s fashion and textile collection. The show also includes photographs and videos, film clips, musical references, as well as artworks by renowned artists, from public and private collections, that have triggered the designer’s imagination throughout his life and career.

For this exhibition, Dries Van Noten has brought together elements which point to other sources of inspiration, such as the Renaissance ‘chambers of wonder’ or ‘curiosity cabinets’ in which collectors amassed memorabilia and souvenirs. He has selected anonymous 19th century pieces and works by emblematic couturiers such as Elsa Schiaparelli and Christian Dior ans 1980s designers, to evoke intimate subject matters such as youth, the archetype, ambiguity and passion, while highlighting his ‘signature’ themes.

Thanks to exceptional loans, masterpieces by important artists such as Bronzino, Kees Van Dongen, Yves Klein, Victor Vasarely, Francis Bacon, Elizabeth Peyton and Damien Hirst are on display in each section of the show. Major films, including Stanley Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange and Jane Campion’s The Piano, are also part of the event.

The exhibition is the result of Dries Van Noten’s close collaboration with the Arts Decoratifs Museum, which has prompted him to use several 19th century textile patterns in his 2014 men’s ans women’s Spring/Summer ready-to-wear collections that he unveiled in Paris in June and September 2013.
