Euphoric Dries Van Noten gives us technicolor and a joyful approach to life. Photography by Rafael Pavarotti

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Dries clearly was fed up with the lockdown and wanted to lift spirits and get back to life and having fun, more than fun the collection is euphoric. Bursting with color and texture Van Noten proposes a collection of ‘Visual fireworks!”

We don’t know what is going to happen in the future and Van Noten did not feel it was the moment for a show, instead he let his imagination run wild. Let’s see life in technicolor and experience joy. If it is not the moment for a show it is certainly the time to reflect on all we lived through and figure out exactly what we learned.
