Paris finally! The most important fashion week has started and the first show I saw was Dries Van Noten. The combination between boyish garments along with the floral prints, influenced by Chinese culture, made me think of this collection as ombré breezy (weird name), but the thing is Van Noten tried to combine the proportions of each piece with the textures of the fabrics, having an amazing result. Not only the colors were sweet and calm but the mixture of fabrics gave the collection an essence oflight. Over sized (moderate) pieces were the statement for Van Noten, which went from the boyfriend jacket to the wide leg cotton pants. The floral prints in dresses and sheer fabrics were influenced by Chinese ceramic, and there are some looks we can even find resembling a kimono. The iridescent clutches were the dynamic detail, along with the fades in jackets and dresses. This is such a beautiful collection, and I’m sure we can expect much more from this week.
