fall prêt-à-porter, paris: dries van noten
by Jeremy Danté
the dries van noten Fw10 collection presented clean & chic designs in paris for fashion week. color contrast & clean lines ruled the collection as interesting touches of prints were seen on select looks. i loved the direction for this season, i died for iris strugbegger in runway look no. 6 – the butterscotch leather gloves matched with the pin striped suit combination with army green sleeves. killer! alongside iris was jacquelyn jablonski, jac & hanne gaby odiele. i loved the satin prints & the mixed color palette with the small features of animal print. there was interesting construction with the pants in this collection too, a fitted cut on the calf was seen & done exceptionally well. a strong collection & direction for the fall, completely fresh.
