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.

a great play on pattern and how the models look so effortlessly dressed.

the cool way to do cocktail, a brooche on the waist and a very nice layered skirt.
