I am enamored by everything that is Dries Van Noten. The sheer beauty of Van Noten’s Spring collection from Paris, lies in a lush woodland setting with all the models languishing on the mossy carpet as if you are witnessing a magical fairy-tale. Inspired by John Everett Millais’ Ophelia, the Pre-Raphaelite image that launched a million hippie fantasies, Van Noten re-created this surreal mood with lighting and a mossy forest floor.
The future over at Dries Van Noten looks light and bright, with sheer light fabrics, deep and muted colors contrasted with the organza silks and sequined t-shirts. I love the way masculine elements are weaved into Van Noten’s womenswear – the collection is truly a stylist’s dream.
A throwback to a Woodstock era, I can just hear the sounds of birds, the girls walked peacefully down the catwalk, laying down across the floor making us think of a painting of young girls in a field of flowers.
