Dries Van Noten Fall Winter 2013

This show was typical Dries Van Noten (that’s a good thing, by the way.) Effortless separates, with many textures, prints, and colours. Lots of print (although some were not to my taste.) Dries-y styling surprises: interesting layering, mixing evening and day fabrics, putting trousers underneath feathery evening dresses. It worked beautifully, and I love that this is a collection that women of all shapes and sizes will find something beautiful to wear.

I love…

the Dries van Noten version of a school scarf. I know you can find these in markets in London for $20, but his has nice colours…

when evening involves pants and pockets.

a crazy feather skirt. It looks silly in this context.
