DRIES VAN NOTEN’s latest SPRING/SUMMER 2015 collection (watch below) introduces the best case for capturing the spirit of a dream-like state and returning back to nature – a collection where casual meets sublime meets cool.
The chirp of birds tweeting was the soundtrack to begin the show – perhaps a reminder of the real origin of the tweeting sound – the sound of nature, not technology.
The collection, clearly inspired by Everett Millais’s ‘Ophelia’, tells a story about an ethereal girl, a mossy carpet beneath her feet, the serenity around her, contrasted with colors and patterns of the signature Dries collection pieces – All effortless. All easy. All elegant.
Van Noten created beautiful images on the runway – the collection looked like a perfect combination of fun and calm, reflected in a patchwork, candy-coloured stripes and texture mix of luxe and raw. Trousers were slouchy, accompanied by transparent and loose dresses and shirts, and oversized blazers, all covered in colourful straps and patterns. It’s definately one of our favourite picks from latest Paris Fashion Week!
