Dries Von Noten: The Master of Grunge Couture
If you could imagine a fierce collection built solely on the masculine/feminine dynamic, Dries Von Noten has the master plan. Filled with contradictions like grunge-inspired plaids and tartans, integrated with sweet feminine lace and shantung, Dries Von Awesome, so he is named, is just that, and always presents the unexpected, the master of nothing being quite what it seems. His incongruous vision powers into his fascination with prints and his new collection ranks right up there with his other masterpieces. Sheer skirts layered over pants, plaid work shirts paired with organza skirts encrusted with flowers, paired with check-print stilettos (married with hints of Courtney Love) and there you have it, Grunge Couture. Batting for backlash of the digital world, Von Noten stands to be applauded for the craft of the human hand.
I like the last image the best.
