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 !

These round toe boots are made from a camel leather and fasten with a metal zip that runs up the inside of the foot. The toe of the boot is made from black, snakeskin leather. The boots have a translucent, orange perspex heel that attaches to the boot with a metal bracket, and it features a brown coloured tip that refracts slightly through the clear perspex. The main part of the sole is made from black leather, and the boots are fully lined with black leather. For the rest, it’s a huge load of rated-R shoe porn. Read the rest of this entry »
Among all the many brands that craft some amazing backpacks like those from Herschell Supply, I’m not even suprised that Dries Van Noten beats them all with this amazing backpack in a rugged wool fabric with calf leather bottom and straps. One big pocket with an extra gadget pocket on the inside that is opened with a zipper. Two big pockets on the outside. Adjustable straps. Leather drawstring and detailings. That’s another superb creation from Dries ! Read the rest of this entry »
When I think about the double-breasted jackets, a name directly comes to mind: Dries Van Noten.
Indeed, the double-breasted jacket has always been a major piece of the Belgian fashion designer’s men fashion shows. For instance, Dries Van Noten often revisits the regular version of the 6-button double-breasted jacket like in Spring 2009, Spring 2010 or even Fall 2010. Plus, he sometimes adds his Belgian touch, forged in the Royal Academy of Antwerp, onto creative 4-button or 8-button double-breasted jackets as he did it with verve for his last collection FW 2011 presented one month ago in Paris.
