PARIS ??” Born into a family of tailors, Dries Van Noten has been designing men??™s and women??™s wear under his own label since the mid-Eighties. WWD caught up with the Belgian designer on the eve of his spring 2010 show tonight to discuss the collection and get his views on creating apparel for men.

WWD: What is the mood of the spring collection?
Dries Van Noten: We are working on something which is very elegant and sartorial??¦and mixed to a kind of ethnic chic.

WWD: That sounds like quite an evolution from your January show. What prompted the transition?
D.V.N.: For me, it??™s not a huge shift, going from one thing to another. It has more to do with the fact that I wanted to find another approach to ethnic, making it very smart, elegant and sartorial. Immediately it gives it a different feel. Almost all the fabrics are handmade, handwoven and hand-printed. We are also using some very high-technological fabrics, as well as traditional English wool.
