Nochintz had a mini break in Belgium at the weekend to soak up some Art and design, fashion and culture.
We managed to squeeze in the Quinze and Milan masterfully engineered canopy in Brussels, The beautiful Dries Van Noten store and the Masion Margiela Fashion exhibition at the ModeNatie fashion museum in Antwerp along with shopping for antiques in the city’s many markets and vintage stores.
All this in two days and then returning via London’s Design Museum to catch the Hussein Chalayan (fashion designer) Alan Aldridge (60’s graphic designer) and Patricia Urquola (furniture designer) exhibitions and finally the Tate Modern’s Mark Rothko.
Highlights of our trip were, the amazing video projections and store concepts of Margiela and of course his many fashion collections, along with Hussein Chalayan and the technological feats of his spring/summer 07 collection and last but not least Patricia’s intricate porcelain designs.
If you can’t make it to Belgium make sure you get to the Design Museum London, to see a collective of three amazing designers all in one space!
