Paris: This season, Dries Van Noten focused on the icons of the 1950’s and more specifically referencing the late Marilyn Monroe and Elsa Schiaparelli. Monroe came printed on anything from double-breasted suits to boxer shorts, her eyes and lips emblazoned upon knitwear, adapted from Erwin Blumenfeld’s 1950’s Vogue cover. Schiaparelli’s spirit was in lobster embroideries, beaded firebirds and ditzy palm-tree prints, most notably covering a two-piece suit. The gothic monochrome colour palette of the line-up leant a certain melancholic mood – Elvis’ “Love me Tender” echoing through the room suddenly felt beautifully eerie. Dries excels with looser silhouettes; this season he opted for 50’s inspired shapes, teaming slouchy jackets and bowler shirts with modern skater shorts whilst voluminous trousers hung off high waist braces paired with mesh tank tops and silk blousons. This was Hollywood decadence at it’s most divine. – Anna Ross

though you relied on the video to make your point.
