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.

For lots more decadent Dries,

i remember years ago when i first saw a dries collection and i fell in love - it's something different than what we're used to seeing, and this collection really does follow suit. i love that the colors aren't the pastels that we've seen a lot of and instead are the bold powerful colors that will accentuate the spring time.

I like this collection. It's very refreshing. Definitely a good collection for Spring.
