After unveiling his 100th collection earlier this year, legendary Belgian designer Dries Van Noten has now revealed two books looking back at every one of his shows to date. The tomes are split into shows 1-50 and 51 to 100, with each having its own book of unseen imagery and accompanying text from journalists Susannah Frankel and Tim Blanks, who will discuss the inspirations, creative references and context of each collection.

With over 2000 images used, the set of books will act as an all-encompassing retrospective of Van Noten’s career, with everything from runway and backstage images to the show’s invitations included. This is the second time that the designer has published a book of his past work, having previously celebrated the landmark of his 50th show with a similar publication. Discussing the idea behind the two new books, Van Noten said: “I like the idea that this commemorates my past so that I may just focus on the future and further evolving as a designer from now.” The two books are set to be published by Lannoo, and will available from October 1 with each priced at $90 USD each or $180 USD for the set, which comes with a limited-edition slipcase.
