spring prêt-à-porter: dries van noten, paris
by Jeremy Danté
blossoming on the runway as though a living form of the spring season, the dries van noten collection in paris is one of tremendous beauty & inspiration. use of floral print & colored gradation were the most beautifully conceptualized elements of the collection, entirely. use of metallic was seen along side stunning whites, soft pink, yellow & watered down neons. a few blazer looks channeled the feel of androgyny that is still lurking in the corridors of trend; but all in all the collection is one set in feminine charm. a beautiful set of design, striking from one piece to the next- a very refreshing sense of design.
