So true…I really love this look, men's attire looks so fierce on women!

For the past week, as you've been photographing the shows, the name issey miyake keeps coming to my mind. I remember seeing his clothes for the first time in the early 80's and thinking how special this look is.I am both seeing and feeling a trend here, something 80's, but all the same very different. I love the look of these clothes. Fabulous!

It looks interesting, but I still don't think I can work the whole oversize thing.
Urgh. Looks frumpy, especially when everything in the outfit is oversized. Don't think I can dig it.

Love DVN's collection, but the "Talking Heads" jackets…too huge in that the model's torso is swimming in them. It's still nice to see a fitted jacket on women, albeit a slightly loser cut and a more relaxed silhouette (third model from the top). The same goes for men. Other than that, this collection is strong, yet clean and relaxed.

I love it! The fist image with the purple shoes and coat is lovely.
September 29, 2010 at 5:10 pm
no thanks :)

I'm not a fan of this collection. I think a woman's body should be celebrated and not hidden with oversize clothing. I think structure is important and these clothes just hang and do nothing for the body of a woman.
September 29, 2010 at 5:20 pm
Really? You can legitimately wear men's clothing? Or does this translate from the runway only in menswear-inspired clothing?
September 29, 2010 at 5:51 pm
I can't lie, the ladies look good.
September 29, 2010 at 5:52 pm
I adore these looks! You are right, steal from your dad's closet! x
September 29, 2010 at 5:53 pm
this is the first time i have ever seen those types of platform, closed toe heels and they look gorgeous instead of trashy. why? because the designer balanced that "sexy", glamorous heel with oversized clothing.
there is balance. everything isn't large, frumpy or masculine. the equilibrium of masculine – feminine combined with the sumptuous fabrics make this collection a home-run.

I actually really like this collection. The coats and shoes are absolutely gorgeous.
September 29, 2010 at 6:04 pm
Love this & am so glad I just stocked up on oversized 2nd hand blazers!
September 29, 2010 at 6:06 pm
A breathe of fresh air for Mr. van Noten. It's nice to see something a bit different, a bit gray and with my neutral tones. The flower print all add a slight touch of femininity to the over sized men's style collection. Well done!

tough Dries is one my favorites in wearability, i absolutely DETEST the boxi jacket from 90ies..
September 29, 2010 at 6:21 pm
I love men's attire on women. But the models are far too thin to look good in it.
September 29, 2010 at 6:39 pm
Boyfriend jacket – a little bit outdated.
Really like the satin trousers though.

loveing all the pieces
September 29, 2010 at 6:56 pm
DVN is pure genius, that is why he is my favourite designer! Love these looks, am sure Garance does too…extra incentive to borrow your clothes?
September 29, 2010 at 7:03 pm
I don't like this collection, is too XXL size. It looks not like a woman's clothing.
September 29, 2010 at 7:33 pm
I think there is a certain point where baggy is just too baggy. But Dries Van Noten has done a good job. I especially love the floral print.
September 29, 2010 at 8:08 pm
oh yes, oh yes. rocking the androgynous style any day. loving the idea that i'm almost dressing like a stylish man would. almost. it's all in the detail then, or in the groove.
September 29, 2010 at 8:35 pm
I love thee silk pants ;))
September 29, 2010 at 8:39 pm
Love the shoes!
September 29, 2010 at 8:44 pm
you are always amazing!!!

oversized fall attire cannot wait for the weather to cool down so I can get my layering on!xoxojOhttp://www.fashionbyjo.blogspot.com/
September 29, 2010 at 9:59 pm
I like some of these, but I think the oversized coats are a generally a misstep.
September 29, 2010 at 10:01 pm
One of my all time favorite designers !
September 29, 2010 at 10:03 pm
Thanks for the tip but if this is "updating" my wardrobe, I'm not interested. Shapeless, oversized masculine clothes are neither flattering nor attractive on women.
September 29, 2010 at 10:30 pm
It's interesting to read the mixed comments, as I too have mixed feelings about this line. I tend to like androgynous and over-sized clothing, but perhaps this is a bit too much? It seems to me that the recent photos of outfits with a similar idea on the street (I'm thinking of 2 from Milan – the trousers/white tea combo and the brown blazer over the striped shirt) do not take it nearly as far.
How far can a woman go before she just looks sloppy?
September 29, 2010 at 10:45 pm
always jealous of a gal who can wear the menswear look by shopping in the mens' dept or bf/ dad/ husband's closet….Lauren Hutton comes to mind as a classic practitioner. But when your 5'2" and tiny…..not such a good idea! The proportions are all off and it looks…not chic, but just like you're wearing someone else's clothes. Or you're a newsboy in a costume drama…..Any advise , Scott, for petites to rock the menswear look?PS_ adore Dries!
September 29, 2010 at 11:15 pm
I'll be interested to see how these clothes look on real women with bosoms and hips, rather than board-flat, rail thin models. Dries does keep things interesting, doesn't he?
She Wore It Well

an updated version of the balmain man dressing look. love it!
September 30, 2010 at 12:09 am
I love mens clothes especially dress shirts, but then again I dont look like they swallow me and I like to belt them which helps.
September 30, 2010 at 12:33 am
LOVE IT! i've been stealing my dad's clothes for years!
September 30, 2010 at 1:26 am
can't really tell your review is good or bad…or just being sarcastic .haha..
Some can work it, some can't–this is difficult to do well even thought you would think it should be easy –being taller helps, but so does a non conformist attitude and the right grooming and accessories. Good on those that can carry it off as I do like it.
September 30, 2010 at 2:45 am
I am officially in love with that blouse and sheer trousers combination!
September 30, 2010 at 4:04 am
i wonder if a man could pull off an over-sized jacket like the first pic.
September 30, 2010 at 4:07 am
One of the good surprise of this fashion week! I completely love the statement chose by DVN. Sexy, casual and simple to get at home…I Told my man to forget to wear his shirts, they're mine now;)
September 30, 2010 at 4:55 am
feminine yet masculine… beautiful!
September 30, 2010 at 5:05 am
The kind of boyish looks with lovely details here and there that I've been searching for. xxx
September 30, 2010 at 6:01 am
sometimes I think I only like dries van noten because he's from belgium because I really don't see how this collection is wearable.
September 30, 2010 at 7:41 am
I love the looks a lot. And also it fits my style which is a bit boyish. But would this collenction fit a somewhat short woman as I am? I am afraid to look funny.
September 30, 2010 at 7:42 am
I love this look. Airy shirts and masculine jackets and straight baggy pants have always appealed to me, but let's be honest. If you aren't tall and thinnish, you're going to look awful.
September 30, 2010 at 8:51 am
I don't find this kind of clothes neither feminine nor flattering!..I loved Jil Sander dresses though!AND the purple Fendi outfit!
September 30, 2010 at 10:08 am
Ahah I agree, I always wore my dad's shirt because they're so comfy and…can be used as a dress.
September 30, 2010 at 10:57 am
"Flattering" is beside the point for some of us. I, for one, don't mind hiding my body in the clothes, for I feel that the clothes are an extension of my body.
September 30, 2010 at 11:07 am
I like the ideas presented in this collection, but I don't actually like the collection itself. There were some interesting details such as the denim cuffs and the faded out floral print but it just doesn't excite me, which is disapointing as Dries is one of my all time favourite designers. That said your photos do the collection much more justace than the standard end of runway shots on style.com etc. Really they should employ you!
September 30, 2010 at 11:55 am
OMG!! i LOVE the purple and orange pump cum platform shoes! They r awsome-looking!!! I'm in love!!!!

I love the silky pants…it's takes a certain bravado to wear those vs. the standard pair of denim. These silky pants make me want to find some fabric, paint up a fluorescent flower or two and sew up a pair of pants!

September 30, 2010 at 12:09 pm
I love everything about this idea…however…
I challenge you to find an image of a person (preferably female) that can pull this look off, that is not tall and thin…I am 5'2" and curvy and I would love to just raid my dad's closet, however I would end up looking like a hobo :)
September 30, 2010 at 12:18 pm
great cross pollination of gender styles and baggy.
September 30, 2010 at 12:43 pm
I'm not even sure, what to say. It looks like the whole huge jacket swallowed her up. But the painted-look flowers are kind of cool.http://www.imeanwhat.com for many, many images from Milan, Paris Fashion weeks going on now!
September 30, 2010 at 12:51 pm
The look at the top is fabulous.
Like Kathleen mentioned above, something 80's, but better.
The model is stunning too.
September 30, 2010 at 1:49 pm
Frist look, first thought – This is really stylish, I can easily add this look to my wardrobe.
Then the second thought- Could I really wear something that looked to big on me?
Still this is great, time will tell if I adopt it.
September 30, 2010 at 2:00 pm
Beautiful collection!! those colors…amazing palette!..obvioussy only for very elegant people…those oversize jackets will be amazing in a truly stylish girl….i encourage all the girls to take their boyfriend´s jackets and try them on….they will be surprise by the effect!!!
September 30, 2010 at 2:19 pm
The whole oversize thing still works for me.
September 30, 2010 at 3:04 pm

Love the blazers!
October 1, 2010 at 12:32 pm
even more on these super skinny models who are supposed to look bored and unhealthy. the shoes can not save the rest of the look.
October 1, 2010 at 1:48 pm
My god the print quality on those silky bottoms looks phenomenal!- can't wait to check it out in store.

I have worn menswear for years. Big jackets/coats…white cotton shirts? The best!
Love the look in the first pic and the silky pants later on…I may like menswear but I also love swishy fabrics!
October 1, 2010 at 9:52 pm
To me, the model in the 5th shot looks huge. The MODEL looks big. Imagine that on the average-sized women who could afford these clothes.
October 2, 2010 at 12:09 am
My favourite were the lapis shoes from the first photograph. – R
