"The truth of the story lies in the details." Paul Auster
It all begins with a grain of fibre. The stalk of flax, the little cloud of cotton, the strand of silk, the fuzzy wool, they turn into cloth, yarn and threads - the raw forms that can become the pleats, embroideries, lace, jacquard and brocade to give us a dream.
In his interview Dries van Noten admitted that his idea of a perfect collection was to enjoy the process of creating the material, playing with it, making the clothes from beautiful fabrics...
His words made me wonder how absolutely mind-blowing it is that a human mind can give a piece of textile such a unique and unforgettable future... mould it, shape it, adorn it with the sparkling jewels and silk flowers, pearls and ribbons, inhale a dream into those fibres.
One must possess quite an imagination, eye, talent and skill to be able to do that.
From a grain of fibre to something so very magnificent... From a faraway field to the Parisian catwalk...
