Dries Van Noten A/W 1999


Dries Van Noten Spring-Summer 1998
embroidered kaftan
for this collection, we steered away from opulent ethnicity with a simpler collection that was more monochromatic in colourway, focusing on shades of white, blue, black and dark brown. although many of the shapes were inspired by silhouettes taken from Japanese, Chinese, African and even Belgian dress styles, the overall impression was less obviously exotic than earlier collections. What was interesting, however, was that because we had an African band to provide the music, everyone assumed the collection was based on that continent. I felt that it proved you can look at another group of cultures without screaming your points of reference. If we had chosen another kind of music, the whole interpretation might have been different. Perhaps, ethnicity is in the eye of the beholder, as much as in what i design. —DVN
