I’ve been a fan of Job Wouters (a.k.a Letman) for a long time, and his work is a personal favorite of mine. He recently collaborated with Gijs Frieling on a mural for the runway show of Dries Van Noten’s Men’s Fall 2012 collection during Paris fashion week. There was also a handful of garments within the collection that featured their art. 


It’s exciting to see what an artist will do if given a large blank wall. It either makes you or breaks you. This fact alone is why I follow an artist like him, he just goes for it. Letman’s style of letter drawing are unique only to him. They are seductive and folkish, which matched the psychedelic elegance tone of Noten’s collection nicely.
