Limited Stock Dries Van Noten Marble Coats Available in Singapore

Belgian fashion label and traditional Turkish craft – two things you would probably have never expected in the same sentence, much less a fashion collection.

In this limited edition collection of raincoats, Dries Van Noten marries tradition with technology by embracing the long-standing Turkish technique of marbling known as Ebru. Typically applied on paper for book linings, this marks the first known time that the craft has been used for textile and clothing. After all, it was not an easy task for the brand to find a master artist of the Ebru technique – which involves creating motifs when oil-based inks diffuse on a water surface, and then transferring the design on to a desired medium. The unique pieces were produced after days of work in the label’s London Atelier.

The stock for the ten available colourways is limited to ten pieces each, and are available in only ten selected stockists worldwide (seems like Dries Van Noten has a favourite number). These stockists include Dries Van Noten Stores in Antwerp, Paris and Tokyo, as well as Barneys in New York, Harvey Nichols in London, Le Form in Moscow, Isetan (Shinjuku) in Tokyo, Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and Club 21 in Singapore.
