Dries Van Noten Spring 2013

You wouldn’t necessarily associate plaid with elegance but that’s exactly what Dries van Noten offered up for Spring’13. Van Noten may not be the first designer this fashion week season to dip back into the grungy ’90s for inspiration for next spring, but his gorgeous execution is what separates him from the pack.

The beauty of this collection is rooted in the unexpected contrast of the casual workman pattern, cut in precious organza and silk, with the refined femininity of flower embellished midi skirts and easy trousers all cut in a fluid and relaxed silhouette that added a big dose of cool to the looks. There wasn’t one look, or piece, in this entire collection that wasn’t drool-worthy.

By far one of the top collections at Paris Fashion Week, Van Noten’s vision for next spring is nothing short of perfect.
