Dries Van Noten aw14

Dries Van Noten is a ‘fashion persons’ designer, meaning that his designs lend themselves extremely well to those who ‘understand’ fashion. Technically speaking (otherwise known as the fashion elite. Editors, photographers, stylists etc). Now by no means at all do I include myself in this group, but I do love Dries and this collection, as I feel it really is an offering of brilliantly fun eccentric pieces. Tim Blanks (from Style.com) who is my bible man, referred to the collection as ‘Rave’ influenced, which I can definitely see, but I like to think it’s more like ‘let your hair down’ than just rave. I love how he likened the collection to an ‘Ibizan Psychonaut’. Yes the psychedelic prints that adorned many a mannish winter coat seemed odd, but I kinda like that, as I do love the unexpected and yes the floral prints did seem to be on colour depth steroids but this is all just runway fanfare to me. Break it all down and you’ve got some stellar stand out fun pieces. And last time I checked, fashion was still supposed to be fun…

  1. and… my life is now complete. All I need is every single piece in my ‘drobe and could kick the bucket any second thereafter and die a happy woman. Broke, homeless and likely missing some vital organs (to fund the purchase) but by god I will look smashing at my funeral. ;P
