A Fashion Documentary Film About Dries Van Noten to Be Released Soon

Dries Van Noten and fashion-related documentary fans, rejoice! A documentary film about Dries Van Noten is not only finally in the making, but is also to be released soon! Entitled “Dries”, the documentary film is produced by distribution company Dogwoof Pictures, and has been written and directed by Reiner Holzemer. Although not confirmed yet, the Dries Van Noten documentary film is expected to debut in 2017.

Dries Van Noten Fashion Documentary Film to Be Released Soon

“Dries” is thus focusing on the Belgian designer’s pivotal moments and milestones achieved within his astounding 25 years in the industry, from when he graduated from Antwerp’s Royal Academy in the late Eighties, up until now.

Introspective and mainly known for his intellectual aesthetics, the Antwerp Six designer is also famous for being discreet and introvert, which made it hard for Holzemer at first to let Dries Van Noten open up about his life and be more talkative. At least, the director had a full year to make things happen and record enough material for the documentary film to come to life.

“It took me a very long time to convince Dries to share his passions, his creative and intimate world in front of a camera. I followed him for a whole year, and I think I came as close to him and his world as it is possible. I hope the result is a very personal insight into his life and career,” Reiner Holzemer told WWD.

To get a broader perspective of Dries Van Noten’s works, inspirations and life, Holzemer asked designers, models and personalities, such as Iris Apfel, Pamela Golbin and Suzy Menkes to join the recordings and get interviewed.

From what we can see from the few sneak peek pictures from the set, what we have to expect is a lot of minimalist environments, Dries Van Noten’s eclectic and signature prints and, of course, a lot of footage from the designer’s past runway shows. Being the third generation in a family of tailor, we also hope we will get to see some of Van Noten’s family’s past designs and creations, and that he could even reveal some of his sartorially talented family’s fashion secrets. Hopefully, footage from the Antwerp Six collective will be part of the documentary film, too.

Aside from Dries Van Noten, who has just launched his book “The Book of Dries Van Noten” as well, dear departed Alexander McQueen and Gianni Versace are coming to the big screen this year too, which means we are officially heading to one of this decade’s most fashionable year!
