This collection is amazing. Those coats at the end are deliciously wonderful. I really love the styling here too.

This collection is missing a certain "oomph" for me, but it's also the very signature Van Noten that I've come to adore. The cotton khaki pieces at the beginning scared me, but there was no reason to fear, everything is quite elegant. Love the heavy attention to outerwear, which is all out of this world.

That finale coat HAS to be in my closet. I've been buying Dries for the last few seasons and the quality is impeccable. I cannot wait to wear this. SO beautiful to see it in motion !

Usually, I'm not a fan of Dries.
I like how they play around with the mix n match of different materials.

I guess the inspiration is somewhat from Korea...
(BTW, a lot more Korean models in shows this season.)

The Chinese inspired vests/jackets are insanely beautiful.

**** it's so good.... . Is it that hard to do this for women as steadily as he does it for men? he will give some of this every two or three years now and the rest of the time it's some oh so romantic oversized rose stamped multiple times in a silky dress in like royal blue or fuschia. It's annoying. I would exclusively shop men's if I could.

^^^ Maybe he just enjoys designing more for men than he does for women LOL

Having seen the rest of what Paris has to offer, Dries' collection is by far far far and way the best.

I adore how masterful, easygoing, light and just elegant his designs, the styling, the color-palette, the presentation and attitude all are. The Asian influences are so thoughtfully worked in without ever crossing into gimmicks, themes, or overly-wrought concepts. Their influences are subtle for practical wear: The batik prints and embellishments works beautifully with the tailored but relaxed suitings; The chinese quilted jackets and coats in a more sombre print layered over suiting is so romantic but practical; The kilt/skirt worn over suits look practical rather than concept-driven with their pockets; and all the skirts and motorcycle pants of khaki look so approachable, and just stunning with the more formal wool suits in tones of navy... Nothing screams "FASHION!"... There aren't any heavyhanded references to a long-lamented youth culture; or more retro-fair; or the unnecessary need to look at tailoring through spiral and asymmetric cutting-- which is all very nice within the context of that collection, but once worn in real-life, looks so forced and contrived, and fashion-victimy.

Dries doesn't bother with all these types of high fashion trappings, and still offers a strong and distinctive collection of accessible separates that looks amazing when styled together.

I hope indeed he's going to do the same for the women collection, please!

^ I still haven't recovered from last S/S season when Dries gave us that divine Rudolf Nureyev collection for men , and then the women's S/S collection was sub-par
