A Dries Van Noten Collection is always a breath of fresh air. This one is sublime, chic, marvellous. Can't get tired of look at it. Those lines and silhouetes with that mix of prints that he does so well is amazing. Love him!

I think after a few 'meh' collections a few seasons back, he has really returned to form with his last few collections.

Conventionally beautiful, but it doesn't do much for me as a whole. Still too many autopilot Dries fashion formulas.
Navy segment appeals to me most.

i see such a prada influence in it but i love those flowers, and the sequins and the shoes!

Gauguin meets graphism !
This is so good. He uses elements that put together should look so wrong but it makes them look so right. I love the flowers clashing with the lines and the sequins. The silhouette is very fluid but quite strong, with shapes as well. He creates beauty in oppositions and makes it look so easy & chic.

i do agree that most of the pieces look hugely reminiscent of other collections, but his team (especially the stylist, my goodness what a great job) is able to package it in such a way that the clothes look very fresh. there may be a whif of Prada, but it doesn't reek of it. Dries has never been tacky in my opinion, and this collection is proof.

this is just stunning, and that colour palette is to die for. I want everything.

A good, but not great Dries collection; particularly compared to the last two. I do love his use of the corsage as a motif, and the navy, silver embellished jackets, as well as the last sequence of bolder looks were definitely a highlight.

One word, fantastic. The floral, yellow silver combinations are quite spectacular. The first quarter of the show isn't as strong as the rest of the collection though.

I like this a lot, especially the foil prints and the swirled and Deco stripes. One of my very favorite Dries collections.
