MoMu 15 Jaar Aftelcijfers 8

8 days and counting… Besides his work in fashion, Dirk Van Saene is also an acclaimed painter and ceramicist. This silk dress (S/S 2016), with the title “I Feel Perfectly Terrible”, is a beautiful example of how Van Saene uses printed reproductions of his paintings on fabric. Portrayed on the dress is Edith “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale, the unexpected style icon known from the 1975 documentary film Grey Gardens, and an important inspiration for Van Saene. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=un4ZiZ-ZLT8
