#SuzyPFW: Dries Van Noten Sings Christian Lacroix’s Song
Two absolutely opposing designers harmonise their vision to make an exceptional Paris show.
Dries Van Noten summer/spring 2020.
The two designer artists admitted their differences, with Lacroix saying: “My motto when I was a teenager was that too much is never enough”. While Dries took the opposite view: "For me 'too much' is not something I arrive at quickly,” he said. “I put more and more layers which afterwards you can dissect, peel away like an onion.”
There did not seem to be much discarding in this joyous display of artisanship on the runway. But there was food for fashion-thought. Why has clothing become so homogenised? Or as Dries put it: "Everything today is so branded, so focused, so edited that it was nice for me to see whether one designer could work with another on a collection.
"It’s so different to how people look at a house now, to a brand, to an ego. For me, instead of doing a homage (to Lacroix) I had the opportunity to act.”
For a rare and blessed moment, two fashion voices sang in perfect harmony.
