    I must say, i was so impressed by the summer collection, those ikat and batik prints still make me dream. Dries has always his own touch to things, fun eclectic and classic on the same time.

    Oh my, that top photo kind of reminds me of Katherine Hepburn or someone of her ilk. Exceptional – I dream of looking this effortless / rugged / beautiful.

    And I recognise the woman in the last pic – wasn't she the one in the perfect white suit sitting on her programme to prevent any fashion week dirtiness?

    The second picture has a lovely range of tones and contrast. It's a great portrait.

      The second photograph is a man, who Scott has photographed on a number of occasions. He is quite beautiful-handsome. And the subject of the first picture is… handsome-beautiful.
      I might add: do people really believe there is such a thing as ‘effortless chic’? I know Scott has written about that as a myth!

    The lady in the last photo was in a beautiful white suit a couple of months ago, she looks incredible in the black suit as well!!

    I'm assuming by the slender neck and lipstick that image 1 is a woman–she's amazing. She looks like she could do anything. Her sweater is perfect.

    The woman in the last image looks just as beautiful in this black suit as she did in the white one this spring, but again I fear for her pants bottom, sitting on the curb like that!

    I also remember the the lady from the 3rd pic from a couple of months back, all in white. I loved (still do!) her hair and have been trying to get my hair like that, too – that means letting it grow for me (had 3mm till then for the last 15 yrs or so). Does anyone know who she is? (and where she gets her haircut? ;))

    God, if the first two are what people look like at Dries Van Noten shows, its surprising anyone looks at the clothes at all!

    I love the woman in the first picture. Love her. She's how I imagine Nancy Cunard became as she got older. I love more or less everything about her, but what I especially love is that she's the beautiful antidote to all the smoothing, plumping, age-denying nonsense we're all (me included) caught up in.

    Thank you for her.

    No, folks, the first subject isn't David Bowie. Bowie doesn't have a beauty spot on his upper lip and he's gotten rather boozy and rugged looking in his later years, though he's still fabulous. Love the androgynous style here. The hair is really perfect with her handsome features–reminiscent of Hepburn and Babe Paley as someone already said. The second? RIght out of The Great Gatspy. The third woman looks has a chic London in the 60s vibe. All of them successful nods to the past while still feeling very modern. Great shots.
