Moments of transformation

i-D magazine is showing a video on their website of Dries van Noten, where he explains about his inspirations, subject of his show in the Musée des Arts Décortifs in Paris. The fashion designer who came to be as part of the collective the Antwerp Six, gets his ideas from art and the past. Formal dress and historical uniforms of play an important role in his designs, transformed into modern wannahaves, symbols of style and elegance.

The video shows his creative influences, demonstrating his passion for color and craftsmanship, art and storytelling. It is an impressive achievement, an exhibition featuring the original artworks, garments and objects that have inspired him throughout his life and career. It shows a truely curious creature allowing us a peek into his personal versatile mind.

I took some screenshots of the flow of images, the stills freezing the moments of transformation.
