Artistic License

Paris…Dries Van Noten

Rendering color in an artistic fashion has become a trademark for Van Noten along with his notable prints. Baggy mustard silk crepe pants looked relaxed yet sophisticated paired with a violet shirt and an alabaster double-breasted blazer. Skirt suits in graphic floral prints were pieced together, mixing sliced panels in an interwoven pattern with burnt orange inlaid in satin. High shine pajama pants looked rich in a silky merlot. Surface interest continued with sequins on a teal blazer that was layered with an olive boat-neck cashmere sweater. Frayed chiffon sewn into floral patterns was used as trim on jackets and for a nude skirt that fell below the knee. This latter piece was paired with a blinding red cashmere sweater that looks set to be one of the key color combinations of F/W 09.
