Dries Van Noten
The collection for Men Autumn / Winter 2020/21

Paris, January 16th 2020

The street is His stage,
Blithe to rules, He takes pride and joy in dressing.
All style – no conscious styling. Visceral, louche, feral, fly.
A rogue with no received boundaries. “Flips the bird” to convention.
Natural sexual power. Enjoys that his decadence dazzles, confronts and brings hither.
The raunch of the early 80s underground Punk rock scene – New York Dolls. Stooges, Ramones, Male Magpie.
An evolution of our Summer collection.
Urs Lüthi, Karlheinz Weinberger
