Spring 2011 RTW: Dries van Noten

11 Jan

This collection is simple, according to van Noten, yet makes a statement. A staple of the collection is menswear — something huge on the runways, inspiration often given to the YSL exhibit — although the effort to feminize the masculine pieces is much different here. Rather than fit them to the body or try and shape them or frill them, it is the simplicity of the oversize menswear that is so great and bold about this show. There was little frills and frou-fra in the show, which was, quite simply, a very nice break.
