i can’t help but think that dries van noten’s home in belgium, recently photographed by francois halard for vogue, inspired his spring 2014 collection. all the flowers, the gardens, the romantic setting, the elegant and refined interiors just had to to be the inspiration for the collection- don’t you think?!

right now it’s dries’ moment…. in my opinion, it always has been. in addition to the recent vogue editorial, dries is currently having an exhibition called “dries van noten: inspirations,” at the musée des arts décoratifs in paris/ see a video on the exhibition here, basically an exhibition on what inspires his creativity (i think i might know what it is- his house in Belgium). then you have his new book that is accompanying the exhibit, simply called dries van noten/ pre-order here, coming out the first of may.

i don’t know about you , but if you ask me, i think all the creativity has to be inspired by dries garden in Belgium- enjoy!
