Dries Van Noten’s study of colour

“I didn’t want it to be theoretical” said Dries Van Noten of his latest menswear collection which blends military elements with prints that will make your wardrobe bold and playful in an instant.

“As far as the season’s fashion agenda goes, he succeeded in hitting every target: the boxy Hawaiian-print shirts, the drapey trousers, the double-belted look” notes Vogue of the show filled with strange colours.

“It’s a study of colour and print and the impact that those two things have on volumes, and how you perceive a silhouette and how you look at the person dressed in those colours or prints,” the designer said in a backstage video during his presentation.

“Colour and men is [sic] not always going very well together, so in that way I really wanted to study a whole group of colours which are not always bright colours,” he added. “This is a completely different way of looking at colour. It was really going very far with it.”
