I hate that guy...his football clothing was one of the biggest travesties in the history of fashion...
even worse, people wore that shit!
Are you referring to Bikkembergs?
I didn't like the article. I mean, what does it really say about Dries other than the fact that he has managed his company well? And it does this in a very glorified way too.

fantastic article, thanks for posting. he seems like such a grounded guy. every time i read something about Dries it reinforces what a truly gifted and genuine person he seems to be. i sense these traits in his work and admire him to no end. i hope his dad isnt still pissed at him...
even if every seasonal collection isnt my cup of tea, there is always an appreciation and respect for the quality he maintains consistently, not many go to such lengths for textile manufacturing as his company does. dries is one of the few lines that i need to see and touch on the racks because i usually get a rush from them in person.
the few Dries pieces I own I have had for years and wear all the time. He definitely has an aesthetic and has stuck to his guns, similar to Demeulemeester (some might say).
We used to have a tradition where I would post a Dirk Bikkimbergs men's collection every season. Part laughter, part cautionary tale. I should resurrect that.
I thought the article was good. It's great to see Dries outline the hardships he has had to face.
