Belgian designer Dries Van Noten has collaborated with the artist David Michalek for the second time after working together for the designer’s exhibition in Paris and Antwerp. Van Noten has designed costumes for Hagoromo, a contemporary opera inspired by traditional Japanese Noh Theatre that opens in New York this week. The former New York City Ballet principal dancers Wendy Whelan and Jock Soto will take the leading roles with their Van Noten designed costumes. For Whelan, Van Noten created a feather-print costume inspired by the Hagoromo, a sacred cloth, and for Soto a fish-print costume.  On the collaboration, the designer said, "A designer's work must inevitably encompass the movement of a body in day to day life, … collaborating with a choreographer greatly heightens this reality and pushes my understanding of a garment even further than I expect", and added  "This is a rare and treasured moment."
