Dries Van Noten
By McKenzie Powell
Classy couture meets eclectic hippy in Dries Van Noten’s daring Fall 2012 men’s collection. The kooky, imaginative assortment is risky yet charming, described impeccably as “psychedelic elegance” by the Belgian designer himself.
At first glance, Van Noten’s intensely obscure use of color and patterns may seem to be too extreme for the ordinary individual. However, upon closer inspection of the various combinations, a feeling of acceptance comes into play. The eye is intrigued by the fitted and simplistic cuts and different washes, which set off the brave designs.
To achieve a more minimal look, simply couple a dark turtleneck with a large velvet blazer, gray belted trouser and tan loafers. It’s Dries Van Noten transformed into campus fashion at its finest.
