I'm way impressed with everyone's Dries collections. I don't have much, but this is only the third season that I've been buying his clothing.

1. Wool crew neck with bright yellow/orange stripe


2. Grey check linen/wool trousers which are my most favoritest pair of trousers ever.


3. Navy wool v-neck


4. Pale pink cotton button up.


5. What I lovingly refer to as my "craft project tie"


6. White croc stamped brogues, which look better and better the more scuffed they get.



I just really enjoy his work, and it may sound weird but he's so great for basics that fit well and are detailed just enough. Also, I only own one pair of shoes so I don't know if it's standard, but they came with an extra pair of shoelaces! So best.

Tourist10, I love your skirt!
You guys should come to Antwerp, we have sample sales a few times a year and a few vintage stores which stock past season DVN all year round...

tourist, both of those are amazing! the colors come to life. I remember you and your boyfriend went to the paris store last year...

bart, thanks for posting the mens line, we don't get a chance to see it much. the details are like little hidden jewels. love the grey and blue sweaters. those shoes are fabulous but the tie is my favorite, the knit on knit is what does it.

ispot, I'll be there next september if all goes well.

Tourist, can't really tell from the picture, but are your mary-janes beaded aswell? The heel actually looks higher than the bronze pair, I think.

Always nice to see a guy in Dries. The croc brogues are beautiful.

thanks for the nice comments, luckyme and iSpot!

iSpot - thanks for letting us know about the sample sales and vintage stores. I'd love to be able to get more Dries from previous seasons. I was in Paris earlier this year and really regret not taking a train to Antwerp

bart - thank you for posting the Dries menswear. I love the shoes. Although he doesn't own much either, my fiance is also a big fan. He really likes the fit and the details.

wheneveriwakeup - my mary janes aren't beaded, and I believe the heel height is the same as the one you posted (maybe around 2 inches?). I have another pair from the same collection that has a 3.5 inch heel, which I love as well. But I'm a total flats person, which is maybe why the lower heel still appeals to me.

Bart: congrats on the new Dries purchases...Im almost certain you'll fall in love w/ that wool piece: IMO, Dries excels when it comes to his fall line...

Speaking of fall, I found this piece on yoox, in brow & black (the one pictured is tan & purple), from FW06..Its a size L, so I just might purchase it, even though I wear a size M in his knitwear (Im thinking the extra size might make it extra cozy for those cold winter nights ahead)..

Softgrey , I can't believe you have that bag!, I adore a very similar one from that same collection...


[firstview]

..the shapes, the colour and material.. it's too beautiful.. you're so lucky .. it's probably the only bag I ever truly loved, and from a distance!.. I still think I'll get my hands on it someday.

I am quite fond of a similar bag from the F/W 07.08 collection:

I just don't have the money, unfortunately.

oh seanut...I adore that bag--I am totally crazy about the knots.

It's really my favorite of the season.
