Publisher's description

A limited-edition catalog of the spring/summer collection designed by Dries Van Noten and photographed by Viviane Sassen. Beautifully designed with color and varnish overlays, Dries Van Noten pays homage to Len Lye’s influential work. His work helped inspire this collection and its optimistic prints of “psychedelic sun, sunshine and moons, light bars, and palm trees.”

Dries Van Noten’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection was developed during the COVID-19 lockdown, in the early stages at least. The designer was working from his home in the countryside outside Antwerp and communicating with his team via Zoom.

The prints of the collection are based on a frame extracted from Len Lye’s experimental films of the ’30s. The late Len Lye (1901-1980) was a pioneering New Zealand film director, sculptor, author, and poet known primarily for his experimental films and kinetic sculpture, and spent his career pursuing an ‘art of movement’. He wanted to affect people physically and emotionally so that art became a full-body experience.

Len Lye’s work stimulated the senses and was unforgettable. In the catalog, you experience the symbiosis between the colors and patterns of Dries Van Noten and the world of Len Lye, photographed by the inimitable Viviane Sassen.
