Dries Van Noten



Dries Van Noten is always a master at taking various global influences and blending them all into a mixture of chic sophistication. For F/W 10, inspirations included Belgian modern, English heritage and Japanese-interpreted American sportswear — some of the most appreciated movements of the moment. Traditional fabrics and patterns were entwined and worked into classic silhouettes like the perfect chino pants or trench coats. Regimental stripes, Van Noten’s trademark checks and plaids, and Harris tweeds were all used in patchwork patterns for shirts, tailored clothing and outerwear. A gentle palette of masculine neutrals helped offset the mismatched elements, making for a wearable, desirable collection that exuded quieted optimism.
