Dries Van Noten

Belgian designer Dries Van Noten has produced an A/W 2010/11 collection that combines many of the features we are asking our students to tune in to for current projects. Combinations of retro shapes with key style features that echo overseas cultures. There are wraps, tucks, clashes and contrasts all tied together with a palette using watercolour touch. Works equally well in mens and womens wear, don't you think? Explore here. Please look at the Spring 2011 offerings too. Those studying Fashion Forecasting projects can see how the timeline is a useful tool for buyers tracking and developing key looks from one season to the next. Check out Ann Demeulemeester for a different take on Belgian high fashion that focuses on fastenings, feathers and wonderful mismatches of silhouette to create strong balance.
