Barneys celebrates Dries Van Noten’s “Parisian” inspiration in New York



Dries Van Noten’s exhibition at Musee des arts decoratifs in Paris, Inspirations, displays a journey into the designer’s most intimate universe. Barneys, sponsor of the French exhibition, teamed up with the Belgian designer to bring a glimpse of it to New York City, asking Van Noten to design the new windows of their Madison Avenue Store. Unveiled over the week end, the windows show settings from the exhibition and display archival pieces from Van Noten’s 28-year career, along with four original short films by film maker Andrew Zuckerman , meant to illustrate the transient moments in nature, from flowers blooming and decaying to a butterfly emerging from a cocoon. “We took elements of inspirations of Dries and incorporated them into the window in a more abstract way,” Freedman said. “It’s another way of seeing Dries’ work, and hopefully it adds to the [Paris] show.” (WWD)dries_van_noten_barneys5
