Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2016 collection

January 5, 2016

So let’s begin the New Year here on the blog with a new collection. Dries Van Noten’s Spring/Summer 2016 offering to be exact. For this latest range, the designed imagined an imaginary meeting between screen icon Marilyn Monroe and surrealist Salvador Dali. If the sound of that puts you off (and it does me), then worry not as the clothing is as well executed and brilliant as usual.

Yes there’s a lot of leopard print throughout the collection and although it does nothing for me in its natural tone, the different coloured versions are much more accessible. Where the collection really shines though are in the perfectly cut and detailed jackets, the crisp shirts, great sweatshirts and the casual pieces that reference some of Dali’s well known work. The use of contrasting textures is something that Van Noten does particularly well and the marriage of tailoring, technicality and bold print is as good as always.

The collection is available from END, so for more information, or to buy online, go to the website here: Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2016.
