Dries Van Noten: Inspirations

The Musée des Arts Décoratifs dedicates an exhibition to contemporary Belgian fashion designer Dries Van Noten whose work is displayed alongside paintings that have inspired him.

The works, which belong to the museum and other public and private collections, were selected especially by Van Noten who was described by The New York Times in 2005 as "one of fashion's most cerebral designers."

The resulting exhibition is an exciting and eclectic mixture of fashion, painting and sculpture. In addition to Van Noten's men's and women's creations, the show also includes pieces from the museum’s fashion and textile collection, as well as photographs and screenings of cult films such as Clockwork Orange by Stanley Kubrick and The Piano by Jane Campion.

Reflecting Van Noten's range of inspiration, some of the exhibited paintings are by artists including Bacon, Bronzino, Hirst, Klein, Peyton, Van Dongen and Vasarely.

Mon-Fri 09.00-13.00/14.00-18.00.
