Inspirations, Dries Van Noten

5 years ago by

The Dries Van Noten exhibition, Inspirations, at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, is one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen this year.

The way it’s curated is sublime — it’s full of treasures. Dries Van Noten never stops showing his work – he wanted to reveal the path that led to his inspiration. The clothes are presented with art, with Picasso, with Vasarely, videos, newspaper clippings… and it’s all integrated into his love of gardens… It’s such a rich show, it would be impossible to describe it to you.

I had gone there to photograph it for you, but something that rarely happens to me happened this time – on my way back home, I lost all the photos. After totally losing it and not being able to even talk about it until today shedding a few tears, I decided to get philosophical about it. It must mean that this show is just made to be seen in person.

The dates of the exhibition have just been extended – of course – to the end of October.

Having the luck to be invited into this unique, brilliant, marvelous and generous creator’s world is an opportunity not to be missed!

It’s really worth the trip.

And for those of you who can’t make the trip, there’s a beautiful book to accompany the exhibition. Click on the arrows to see all the photos.
