‘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:
