Dries Van Noten Marilyn Monroe Collection
The illustrious brand Dries Van Noten has released a fantastic collection of men’s designer pieces inspired by none other than the legendary, Marilyn Monroe. Famed for her on screen roles just as much as her off screen romances. With a movie career featuring a huge list of classics, from the ‘Seven Year Itch’ to the unforgettable comedy masterpiece ‘Some Like It Hot’ where she shared screen time with the brilliant Jack Lemon and Tony Curtis. Her popularity swept across the world with her portrayal of ‘dumb blonde’ characters helping to cement her sex symbol status.
Outside of the silver screen she was equally famous for leaving a string of husbands and lovers in her wake, including strong rumours of a tryst with President John F.Kennedy. Her untimely death is still shrouded in mystery as to what really happened, adding to the allure of the Marilyn Legend.
With all this huge backstory surrounding the star, it’s no wonder the Belgian brand has chosen her to feature on their designer products. A wide range of pieces are available, stand out pieces from the collection include a cashmere knit sweater featuring Andy Warhol’s iconic silk screened image and a reversible twill cotton jacket featuring an all over print of Marilyn.
