Paris: For his F/W 11 collection, Dries Van Noten found a muse in David Bowie around the Thin White Duke period. Double-breasted suits, fur trim and dip-dyed effects on sweaters and coats all came together for a decidedly glamorous show — and one that found yet another point of reference in the manly ideals of the 1970s. A continuing fascination with uniforms was evident in architectural takes on suits and outerwear that took inspiration from ceremonial details and aristocratic origins. In the end, Van Noten offered one of the most steadfast interpretations of modern luxury to date.
