Dries Van Noten is a very busy designer. As I wrote about recently, he just opened a new men's store in Paris and now he just celebrated his new in store boutique on the third floor at Bergdorf Goodman. I love that Dries puts as much thought into interior design as he does fashion design. He recently told Esquire, "my partner Patrick Vangheluwe and I choose all the antiques pieces that go into the spaces. Sometimes they rotate in and out of our home and the stores." The blue sofa and yellow drapery combination is the same as in the Paris store but clearly, it's a scheme that works well. Dries also said, "the nice thing with antiques is you never find the same thing twice. You can make the same formula by combining a 1950's chair with an over-the-top turn of the century table and all these things, but it's always unique. It's these strange mixtures that appeal in the decoration as they always do in my collection." I concur.
