EXQUISITE! Kudos to Dries for a truly stunning collection. The eastern influences teamed with something quite military but luche at the same time is the perfect mix. The accessories are amazing; I love the use of tortoise shell and that fur clutch…so well done! A very wearable collection; I expect to see a lot of it being worn on the streets.
I never thought I’d write in to say I liked a fashion show. Usually I hit the street fashion immediately afterwards to get the taste out of my mouth. But this stuff is incredible. The phoenix on the blazer! The blue and green trousers! The Asian thing, revisited. The color, the humor, the feeling that whole point is to have fun and revel. I even like the shoes.
Love all of this so much. The prints are so graphic. It’s like you placed rolls of different patterned fabrics on top of each other and then just cut the suits with the existing overlap. Love it. http://www.natashafatah.blogspot.com
I am so curious to discover if asiatic people appreciates how he is using the patterns and material. It’s such a meeting between east and west. Women from Shanghai who are sometimes so classy, are they going to buy it ? There is some pieces really gorgeous. It’s really clear that he tries to seduce them.
it looks very Ming Dynasty chinoiserie, especially the triangle rainbow stripes, used to be the patterns on the uniforms of government officials. And of course the dragon embroideries, just exquisite. I’d love to buy a piece as birthday present to my mom!
Simply love Dries Van Noten….
Today’s classic style that can be worn by anyone & anywhere -
And in the alternative, revisit your own closet of clothing & use his imagination to create your own look.
His collections are classy, imaginative and have staying power.
The print on the first coat and jacket is extracted from ancient Chinese Empror’s royal gown – it is so grand yet colorful and full of energy! It’s the modern way of using the asian element that impressed me the most. The first glimps of the photos made me speechless.
