I'm scratching my head over all the positive comments here... I guess I need to get my eyes cleaned Unflattering and way too busy for my taste. I don't really see anything I like, except maybe some of the accessories.

Strong in the clothes but Im wondering if they will pop in the rack.

The fabrics are to die for but ... I wonder if people really are going to be into them enough to pick them over any other designer.

I think there's a lush quality to everything and I FLOVE the soft, glittery tartans mixed with floral silks, omg. I agree this is more accessible? (in a lack of a better word) than older dries, but I don't think it's contrived or trying to hard at all. I'm mostly a white t shirt and jeans girl but I go weak in the knees for Dries.

I LOVE almost all of it, the exception being the footwear. Will it sell? Absolutely!

The bedroom wear as out wear ... Nice and comfy ...

* that's basically how I'm dressed when, on Sundays mornings in Paris, I go out to get the croissants ...
Pajamas (same print), random large shirt and pullover ...
Love this imagery...



yeah- it's nice...
not really me..but very nice...
also...very blue...


*the mules are a big no-no imo though...

He has to be the master of mix!! Luv the collection. Only wish he uses the same print for his men's collection.

I am sincerely impressed with this collection... really, I'm swooning. I think the styling is impeccable. Minus a few pairs of shoes, I think this collection is just perfect.

Exactly how I feel. There are a few things I like, but I just don't get the appeal of most of the collection.

This is a nice departure ... the plaids are something different, and the shoes look great. I see some other strong individual pieces, like the black vest/blouse that's very structured with a nipped-in waist. Some lovely prints.

Maybe not sooo beautiful on the runway, but this looks potentially very strong in a retail environment.

It's not a particularly striking collection and it did seem like a lot to take in, but it was lovely Loved the long silhouettes the most, he usually does above or below the knee pieces so it was nice to see them.

I just died and went to fashion heaen.

I have not, I repeat, I have not been in love with a collection this much since Phoebe's debut at Celine...Who the F*** can pull that together and make it work? Dries! Only Dries!

When i'm rich i'm hiring his stylist and getting a sex change just so I can wear all of this.

^ Well dont get through all of this ... A pair of pants and kimono never hurt a man ... I'm sure you can do fine without going through the sex change .... Unless you really want it, and thats another subject ...
