An airforce vacation seemed to be the idea behind Dries van Noten’s collection this evening, and what a thematically disparate notion it was. Half buttoned-up, half hanging-out; tricolour stripes and military ranking symbols; shorts and fisherman’s knits; trench coats and cargo jackets. It was as if the strictest adherent of military convention had been given forced-leave, but wasn’t quite able to enjoy it without retaining a sense of his rank and order. All themes aside, the clothes themselves were classic Dries van Noten – technically advanced fabrics, the richest imaginable colours and stunning patterns. Non-military men will no doubt enjoy them too, hopefully both at work and at play.
I LIKE YOU!
