Something is off about this collection. A lot of great pieces but as a whole, something is missing.
Dries has been very hits/misses lately.

Dries doesnít do precollections and this collection will have a long life in the stores. Thatís why his shows have a lot of looks.

But he will sell or at least produce everything.

exactly!
This is eclectic, colorful, playful, eccentric even but at the same time it's extremely elegant and refined... Every look works, this is the sign of an actual designer vs someone who entered a thrift shop blindfolded, threw some clothes together and called it a day.

For me it's clearly his best show in a while now. Yes Dries! The elements are typical to a lot of his recent output but this time everything comes together fantastically. The austere flower/feather prints look great on the black looks at the beginning and then towards the middle on stark white. Amazing outerwear and best use of feathers (better?) since Prada S/S 2017, really a lot to digest here.

Agree, he has regressed in recent years. Still super lovely work and better than most, but not as magical as his streak a few years back.

A sophisticated vibe. Makes me want cocktails in the afternoon.
