Season's best

 

Never got around to looking at the Woman's, thanks.

Dries is just so consistently good, yet remains so easily recognisable.

I suppose when you've been putting together patters and colours like that for 20+ years it's probably hard to get it wrong, but it's still almost a shock when I see some of the combinations he comes up with and how good they look. Perhaps it's more of a styling thing than a designing thing, whatever, it's still a constant source of inspiration.

Dries is always one of the most interesting

Love Dries. He can make the weirdest things look cool. Pyschedelic pajama time!

 

Even though the prints seem all over the place, there's coherence with color and scale. Plus how can you go wrong with sandals and furry socks? :-)

Kinda makes me think of Etro in the use of the prints

i actually find the more tech-y collections like S/S 2012 and S/S 2013 better than these seventies/weird-print-combination collections

stunning collection, there's a lot to enjoy

my only gripe is with some of the models suffering from what appears to be shrunken-head syndrome, the distorted proportions are not sitting well on a few. that, the few fringe-y things, and the socks+sandals which is just too nerdy a combo for me to like ever.

but incredible use of prints and seemingly incoherent ones done so elegantly here !

I don't know how this collection avoided looking gauche or channeling all the wrong elements of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, but I salute Dries for pulling it off.

Thanks Parker, here's another one






It's true we're in Etro territory here but Dries' eye for patterns and colors and how the two combine is unmatched, he knows just when to stop whereas Etro tends to go overboard more often than not. I also think the play on volumes is key here, most of the stuff wouldn't look nearly as good in an all slim fitting configuration, to me Dries is at his best when he's working with looser silhouettes (tailored stuff or not). I particularly like the huge jackets/sport coats here, shrunken-head syndrome notwithstanding. That said, not really fond of the big ass paisley stuff and the leather pants.

Nancy Rohde always does a great job with the styling.

Green mohair-like socks are a yes.

RTW is perfection.
