‘Dries’, Van Noten’s New Film: Official Trailer Released

The trailer of Dries, the keenly anticipated new documentary about celebrated fashion designer Dries Van Noten has been released at last. Ever enthusiastic about fashion and films, SEEN celebrated the released of Dior and I. Now we can’t wait to watch this new film, which promises to be beautiful and, of course, distinctly Dries.

Film director Reiner Holzemer documented Van Noten’s life for an entire year; from his rich home life to the creation of four collections, choosing the rich fabrics, embroidery and prints exclusive to his designs. His emblematic catwalk shows that have become instant classics at Paris Fashion Week have also been documented for posterity.

Dries is a real insight into the life, mind and creative heart of this revolutionary Belgian designer, described by the New York Times as “a man of little ego and big ideas”. Until the release of the film, enjoy a taster of what’s to come by watching the trailer here:

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
