Shop the Dries Van Noten Sale at Aphrodite Clothing. Having emerged from the Belgium design scene in the early '80s, Dries Van Noten quickly found himself climbing the ranks of the industry as part of the famous 'Antwerp Six' collective which also boasts the creative talents of Ann Demeulemeester, Dirk Bikkembergs, Marina Yee, Walter Van Beirendonck, and Dirk Van Saene. Having all graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, each of these rule-breaking trailblazers helped place Antwerp firmly on the fashion map with a series of radical aesthetics which would go on to define the zeitgeist of the '80s and '90s.
With multiple stores anchored across the globe, Dries Van Noten has established a deserved spot in the hearts of fashion lovers worldwide. The brand's collections act as an antithesis to the 'minimalist' trends of late, instead favouring ideas of an eccentric nature, often referencing art with bursts of colour and mismatching prints sprinkled throughout.
