Dries Van Noten

Paris: Dries Van Noten’s fresh and airy take on grunge debuted at his S/S 13 womenswear collection, a theme which carried through to menswear for Fall. But where his feminine angst was diaphanous and layered, the masculine version carried weight through thick tweed t-shirts, leather cargo pants and tapestry hoodies. Slouchy and full of baroque drawing-room patterns, heirloom plaid coats and silk pajama shirts, this was old-money in revolt, carelessly pairing pinstripe suiting with fringed dashikis and sandals with socks. Earning his status as venerable master of the mix, Van Noten’s F/W 13 struck a perfect balance between youthful defiance and the weight of tradition.—Nina Stotler
