{PFW} everything Dries, please...


"This was boyfriend borrowing, on the grand scale..." 
~ Hamish Bowles

As you may have noticed, I've been radio silent on fashion week collections since New York. That's partly just bad blogging, but partly disinterest. I hadn't heard of anything with that "wow" factor since NYFW. (Maybe I wasn't listening?) Anyway things have been a little nutty over on my end, which I'll explain soon. 

Back to this - Dries Van Noten, AW13. I am swooning, drooling, and fawning over this collection from behind my computer. It's suiting fabric and menswear silhouettes that got caught in a windstorm with some feminine touches and came out mixed up in the best way possible: wearable.

As with many of my favorite collections for Fall '13, it's full of really good jackets. (See exhibits A and B on the far left and right.) I also love that almost all the models are in flats. (Creepers, no less!) The slouchy nature of the pieces combined with artful pattern mixing, interesting layering and more than a few unexpected details (appliques and feathers!) make this whole collection a slam dunk in my book.

Do you like this offering from Dris Van Noten as much as I do?
