Dries Van Noten at Bergdorfs
10 . 25 . 10
Dries Van Noten is a very busy designer. As I wrote about recently, he just opened a new men’s store in Paris and now he just celebrated his new in store boutique on the third floor at Bergdorf Goodman. I love that Dries puts as much thought into interior design as he does fashion design. He recently told Esquire, “my partner Patrick Vangheluwe and I choose all the antiques pieces that go into the spaces. Sometimes they rotate in and out of our home and the stores.” The blue sofa and yellow drapery combination is the same as in the Paris store but clearly, it’s a scheme that works well. Dries also said, “the nice thing with antiques is you never find the same thing twice. You can make the same formula by combining a 1950’s chair with an over-the-top turn of the century table and all these things, but it’s always unique. It’s these strange mixtures that appeal in the decoration as they always do in my collection.” I concur.

This is so fab.
Makes me want to move right in.
I cannot wait to get back to Gotham, and see what new and B & g’S….
The bright yellow and blue combination is so invigorating, I would never have thought that it would work anywhere else except from maybe Miami! The most beautiful features are the roman looking gold columns with the decorative flourish at the top, it creates such a striking ‘wardrobe’ for clothes display.
Going to be in New York over Thanksgiving and can’t wait to see the boutique in person…beautiful!
I concur as well! I was just at Bergdorf’s this weekend, really smitten with the Dries Disco ball scene in the window!
I love – and agree! – with the statement about the fabulous nature of antiques, in that the same thing is never created twice! How true! Thank you for this post… very cozy, yet rich.
Love his clothes. And few have his ability to mix colors. Nice to have another place to shop the line.
I’m in love with the blue couch yellow curtains combo. Such unusual shades make for such an interesting combination!
Love his clothes – this season was particularly winning, interiors and that he likes gardening. I read somewhere that he brings his homemade jams as dinner party gifts.
