    an abundance of knit wear! i did like the dries collection for dries. but they are not my favorite in general.

    great 40's throw-back style. i can see Ruth Husssey (Philadelphia Story) rocking these outfits. Dries is killin' it!

    Nothing new about the socks. They just copy the Rio de Janeiro's sidewalk pattern… It's beautiful, don't get me wrong, but it ain't new…

    I am a big fan of Dries. This collection seems like a pure extension of his past couple seasons. Secretly, I wish it were more of a direct translation of his fall 2011 menswear collection – fewer prints, more Bowie – but tailored for a woman.

    In any case, I am sure I will buy at least one or two pieces, and definitely the shoes.

    Love how you just add "and the socks!" which is really nice because almost no one really notices the socks unless it's Prada…or something else.

    I, for one, after spending the last few days watching not-very-bright women walking around the streets of 25 degree Chicago in ballet flats with no socks, am very glad to see something on these women's feet.

    You are so right about the way you advise us to view the pictures you take of the shows. I love to see the colour combinations; so many things put together that I wouldn't have thought of doing. Here the amazing socks with the shoes and the big coats. Wonderful. I love Dries Van Noten and this collection looks beautiful. Thank You. Julia

    Have you seen some shows lately that you genuinely didn't like? I understand that mainly the point is to share the things you like but it would be interesting to know. Of course there's no need to name any names if but in general, have there been such cases and if yes then what has been wrong?

    At first viewing, I was a bit underwhelmed with this collection (and mind you, I'm an ardent fan od Dries) but on second viewing, it's growing on me. I notice you skipped the collage prints which made up a good portion of the show. I've dismissed them as well!

    Dries is a mega talent; the coats are magnificent; they look to me to be of major design significance.

    Oh my goodness I'd like each outfit delivered by Monday please.

    I have always though dark blue and brown is a killer combination so just love this.

    Also I LOVE this use of minimal fur. Fur is beautiful but it does not need to be the main event. See above photographs as a great example!

    The different textiles are so refreshing. Dries does it again. I only wish he made the women sexier with shorter and tigher drapes. Maybe some interesting hoisery would have added to the texture of the entire line.

    Oh oh oh I'm so in love with this collection! It reminds me of Marc Jacobs Fall 2010, below-the-knee skirts, a super stylish nerdy look. But Jacobs used low heeled shoes and Dries Van Noten has high heels with platforms which looks much better, IMO. Awesome.
