As part of the Dries Van Noten Fall/Winter 2018 collection, the namesake brand has unveiled an exclusive line of limited-edition raincoats. Originally featured in the finale of his men’s fashion show, the capsule will not only celebrate the drop of the latest designs, but highlight traditional Turkish techniques.
Named the Ebru technique, the practice involves a series of oils in which the pigments are mixed to achieve a marble effect, applied directly to a surface to reflect the pattern. Normally reserved for paper, the Belgian designer utilised the technique on textile, and went through 300 different designs before achieving the end result.
Applied to oversize, lightweight raincoats, the patterns were rounded down to 10 unique variations and will be restricted to 10 units of each colour-way. As a highly exclusive capsule, the availability will only be across Dries Van Noten stores in Antwerp, Paris, and Tokyo, as well as select stockists in New York (Barneys), London (Harvey Nichols), Moscow (Le Form), Tokyo (Isetan, Shinjuku), Hong Kong (Lane Crawford), Singapore (Club 21), and online on MR PORTER.
