Dries Van Noten : 2019 menswear collection.
Prints inspired by Verner Panton.
Verner Panton is considered one of Denmark’s most influential 20th-century furniture and interior designers. During his career, he created innovative and futuristic designs in a variety of materials, especially plastics, and in vibrant and exotic colours. Now his amazing colour prints have been the inspiration for Dries Van Notens’ 2019 Menswear collection.

Below are some original prints by architect and designer Verner Panton.
For the prints Dries wanted to pay homage to the influential work of architect and designer Verner Panton. He got permission from the Verner Panton estate to visit the archives and to use the original designs from Verner Panton for this collection. The estate also granted him permission to rescale some designs and to develop them in different colours. <instagram.com/driesvannoten>
Panton’s retro, 60s prints coloured in a range of bright colours including blues, oranges and reds are used to create shirts, trousers, shorts and coats.
“It has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with Verner Panton’s prints,” said Dries Van Noten. “We greatly enjoyed the confidence and freedom offered us in adapting and rescaling some of his works for garments.” <www.dezeen.com>
