Impossible not to admire the beautiful fabrics used in the Dries Van Noten Fall 2015 collection.
I hesitated before blogging on this collection because it has been so widely covered in the mainstream press and fashion blogs that you are probably over-familiar with it already but beauty must have its’ place here and as they say on Style.com:
It was part of the magic of this collection that … oppositions comfortably coexisted: rich, poor, salon, street, tradition, iconoclasm. Beauty as a gesture of defiance. Deluxe Bohemia is Van Noten’s default setting, and here it was honed to a tee. The gilding, the brocade, and the sequins brought the glamour. The chino, the canvas, the baggy shorts were the ground. So we had the blissful conjunction of a cloud-patterned sweatshirt paved in sequins (ending in a fringe of big, shiny paillettes) and what might best be described as combat culottes.
Gorgeous, wearable eclectic style. Images of my my favourite looks are here, above and below. Do click the link to see more Dries Van Noten Fall 2015.
