Dries Van Noten Fall 2013
Everyone knows the coolest girls are those that can layer seemingly incongruous pieces in such a way that the total look feels perfectly meant to be. For Fall 2013, Dries Van Noten riffed on that idea, mixing and matching classically femme elements with traditionally male pieces for a gender-bending romp that felt fresh, youthful, and very, very chic. Floral-printed chiffon, shiny jacquard, and marabou feathers decorated shift dresses, tiered A-line skirts, and belted coats. They were often paired with slouchy boyfriend sweaters, crisp button-up work shirts, heavy wool trousers, and rugby striped tops for the ultimate just-threw-this-on look.
