DRIES VAN NOTEN - FALL 2011 - PARIS
Dries Van Noten claimed he was bringing together two key flavors of Fall—David Bowie and the Ballets Russes—in his new womenswear collection. When he sat photos of Bowie as Ziggy Stardust next to iconic images of Nijinsky dancing, he was struck by the similarities. But that was Dries alone at home with his thoughts. On his catwalk those inspirations were so thoroughly absorbed into a heady collage of color, print, and texture that specific references were irrelevant. Bowie gave Dries his song "Heroes" to remix for the soundtrack (2 Many DJs performed the honors), and its yearning surge set the tone. "Not heroic," clarified the designer, "but romantic. I think 'Heroes' is one of the most passionate songs ever, and I am passionate about this collection."
