Lockdown has been hard, there’s no way around it. The scenic monotony has huge knock-on effects on our minds, so it’s never been more important to find a form of escapism. And, as travel is still largely out of the question, escapism becomes an at-home task. Nobody knows this better than Dries Van Noten. Teaming up with Mr Porter for the inaugural ‘Hosted By…’, the Belgian designer takes us on a psychedelic journey through menswear to prove the power of escapism right now.

Hosted By Dries Van Noten marks the beginning of a series that will allow us views into the thinking, processes, and inspirations behind some of the greatest names in men’s style. Who better to kick things off than a designer who's earned a cult following with a highly unique, technically perfect take on timeless menswear? A short video sees Van Noten explore his love of psychedelia and the importance of traveling mentally in a time when physical travel is off-limits.

An exclusive capsule collection accompanies the video, continuing the theme of tripped-out visuals which stand as Dries Van Noten’s signature. Relying on graphics, bold colors, and relaxed fits, the collection lands as a symbolic and natural fit for what’s backed to be a summer of easing restrictions on travel, but also a reminder that sometimes we needn’t even move in order to travel.

Buy at Mr Porter

In most other collections, this silk shirt would be a punchy standout piece, but in Hosted By Dries Van Noten it becomes one of the more tame, toned-down aspects. An entangled palm tree graphic gives this button-down a pinch of acid style without dominating your looks.

In the absence of tacky postcards, a Dries Van Noten tee should do the job. Emblazoned with the always-smug "Wish you were here", this T-shirt features a terry-cotton panel to the front for added texture.
