There is a tendency to think of Fall fashion (at least in temperate zones) as characterized by deep, saturated, darker colours and stiffer, more "pulpy" textures. Dries Van Noten does not subscribe to that recipe this Fall and good for him!
He has never been one to care about being in the headlines for "cutting-edge" designs. He sticks to what he does best - classic proportions which flatter a woman's form and make her wardrobe fluid, practical and yet, a great pleasure to wear.
This season, he has added a little punch with interesting colour combinations and while his Fall Show started and ended with belted slouch coats, there was nothing boring or sedate about any of his pieces!
I love them!!
