The images from an Incomplete Dictionary of Show Birds have been an inspiration for the women Spring Summer 2019 collection.
An Incomplete Dictionary of Show Birds began with a very simple idea, Luke Stephenson wanted to photograph budgies and met a great deal of people (mostly men) who were very knowledgeable about their hobby and only too happy to share it with him. Their enthusiasm became infectious so that by simply photographing a species Luke felt he was adding it to his collection.
For the Spring Summer 2019 women’s collection Luke made a new series of four photographs. These images are printed on a limited edition of shirts that are exclusively available with four of our partners.
Barneys – New York
Club 21 – Singapore
Joyce – Hong Kong

Men’s Spring-Summer 2019 Collection
a limited edition of shoes and bags with Verner Panton designs
They are available at the Dries Van Noten shops in Antwerp, Osaka, Paris and Tokyo as well as at Dover Street Market inTokyo, Opening Ceremony in Los Angeles, Selfridges in London, Totokaelo in Seattle, Hankyu in Osaka and Tokyo and Isetan in Tokyo.
To celebrate the launch we created a record with the soundtrack from the Men’s Spring-Summer 2019 Collection Fashion Show. The soundtrack is a mix of ‘Plastic Dreams’ by Jaydee and ‘Problemtica Giovanile’ by Piero Umiliani
The designs for the prints from the men’s Spring-Summer Collection were made in collaboration with the Verner Panton Estate.
Some designs are original designs from Verner Panton. The estate gave Dries also the permission to change the scale and color combinations of the designs.
