Letman and Gijs Frieling for Dries Van Noten: Fall 2012 Menswear

We think they’ve pulled it off with a catwalk collaboration involving one of our favorite typographers Letman and Dutch artist Gijs Frieling, who together painted a 100ft long mural whilst a flurry of well-dressed lads strutted they’re stuff in the foreground. The artists themselves designed textiles for the collection; trim, tailored button-ups and trench-coats featuring their eye-catching typography and surreal, acid-bright illustrations. Truly inspiring.
