Dries Van Noten was explaining backstage that his men’s collections had become “so serious” and that he wanted to get a little crazy. So he figured a way to create “psychedelic elegance”. Three painters were still busy working on a giant wall when Dries van Noten’s fall men’s collection took to the runway. The artists were working on recreating the colorful work of Dutch artists Gijs Frieling and Job Wouters, and had been working for a complete day already. The prints themselves weren’t that impressive but really provided a profound harmony to the collection, making the whole show stand out from other runways in my opinion. The multicolored prints pair perfectly with the black, blue ant white tailoring and embrace the current “all-printed-out” movement. Definitely worth taking a look after the break !
