Paris Fashion Week, Spring 2009: Dries Van Noten

Take Belgian eclecticism, mixed with California cool and Russian artist Malevich, and you have one of my favorite Spring collections thus far. Oh, Dries. A mix of elegant black and white and some punchy, definitively Dries colors, and you have the palette. Fluid pants, laid-back suiting, grid prints, embroidered clusters, and silky, boxy day dresses are all favorites here. Accessories also piqued my interest: grid print clutches, bauble necklaces, milky sunglasses, and graphic sandals. And the best part: these are all wearable. Many of today's designers struggle to find the harmony between inventive and commercially viable — van Noten found it.
