Dries van Noten Catwalk Fashion Show ss2010

It’s been a long time Dries van Noten used his famous and favorite ethnic influences to create a collection. Somehow it never went away, it just waited under the surfaces of other collections to be used when required. After a sober, classic but colorful winter-collection Dries van Noten went East again. This time very restraint, elegant and somehow French. It was the arty jewelry (wit big crystal-stones), two-tone shoes, wet hair and bare faces (no make-up at all ) that gave it an intellectual touch. Van Noten mixed his all time classics in different prints – batik, ikat, stripes, Chinese embroidery – and beautiful colors from aubergine and black to white, red, blue and beige. The game was played by texture, print and proportions. Stiff 3/4 trousers, flowing silk dresses, skirts hanging on the hips with too short sweaters. It was sporty, chic and ladylike with a masculine touch. Perfect clothes for grown up women who want to dress fashionable and beautiful without screaming it out loud.
