The shape of the hemming patch, which extends out from the edge, is also unique.














Vintage thick linen cords fastened to the lining. The rhythm created by the unintentional and natural disorder of the stitches due to the handwork.













DRIES VAN NOTENは、仕立て屋の家の祖父、複数のブティックの経営者だった父の経済的にも環境的に恵まれたなかで、自然に服飾ビジネスへの興味を育み実行した人物。

DRIES VAN NOTEN is a man who naturally nurtured and implemented his interest in the clothing business through the economic and environmental advantages of his grandfather, who came from a family of tailors, and his father, who was the owner of several boutiques.











A special school for children from wealthy families to go on to become doctors, politicians, legal professionals, etc., he is a clear-headed man who earned the credits and courses necessary to enter college at the age of 12 in order to earn the right to choose the path he wanted to take in the clothing business, which was different from his parents’ wishes.











In 1986, the “Antwerp Six” and their friends participated in the “British Designers Show” at London Fashion Week, where they held a guerrilla-style show that was well received. However, although they attracted attention, they were not inundated with requests for commercialization, and it took more than five years of continuous study for the “Antwerp 6” to take the fashion world by storm.













情熱的というより冷静で、挑発的というより心の内側に光を与えるデザイン。DRIES VAN NOTENは、病的な完璧主義者であり、2018年にスペインのPUIG社に良好な関係性のもとに株式譲渡を行うまでの30年近い期間、自身でビジネスのあらゆる面を管理し自己資金で会社の運営を行なってきた優秀な経営者でもあります。

A design that is more sober than passionate, more provocative than provocative, and more illuminating to the inner mind. DRIES VAN NOTEN is a pathological perfectionist and a brilliant manager who managed every aspect of the business himself and self-financed the company for nearly 30 years before transferring his shares to the Spanish company PUIG on good terms in 2018.














In order not to interfere with the elasticity and softness of the knit, the hem of the lining is left floating a light impression.















The buttons are vintage French corozo (mainly tagua palms from Ecuador). These quaint buttons are made by processing the endosperm part of the seeds inside the fruit.

Before the development of plastics from the 19th century to the 1950s, these buttons were actively made to take advantage of their smooth feel, hardness, durability, and dyeability.













vegetable ivoryの呼び名通りの乳白色の実を削って加工される何とも言えない丸みと、乳白色のベースを染める事で生まれる優しい色合いの魅力。見た目に反してしっかりした質感と重みを兼ね備えた、味わい深さを持ったボタンです。

As the name “vegetable ivory” implies, this button has an indescribable roundness created by shaving milky white berries, and the charm of the gentle coloring produced by dyeing the milky white base. Contrary to its appearance, this button has a solid texture and weight, and has a deep sense of taste.











The softness of the hand-stitched wrinkles and the atmospheric look of the rows of vintage buttons are the result of handwork.














Clothing that can do what just old or just new cannot do.
