Richard Haines x Dries Van Noten

Above: The Dries Van Noted store, Antwerp.

Dries Van Noten has once again collaborated with the brilliant Richard Haines for a new series of illustrations inspired on the ballpoint drawn prints from the AW 2018-19 Women’s collection. Using only the ubiquitous biro pen himself, Haines lends his whimsical line style to these wonderful promotional drawings.

"Backstage, Van Noten said his studio had been perfecting the elaborate biro-like prints that defined the collection for three months. They had a doodling quality to them, which, up close, felt much more spontaneous and exuberant than it looked from afar. The inspiration was Art Brut – outsider art – named so because it’s executed by amateur artists with no gallery contracts or responsibilities to speak of. “Postmen in the South of France,” as Van Noten quipped."
