I disagree. Great use of embroidery, prints, and colors, imo.  Makes me think of some bandit from Prussia or something like that.  Very romantic.  I really liked FW13, which had this very louche feeling, like some party in the 70s.  This is less modern and more romantic than was that, and I like it.  Lots of what looks like ye old athletic gear as well...

Okay, just read the notes.  Nureyev. Makes sense, with the ballet slipper shoes and the unitard.

Idk, it seems pretty restrained in terms of prints this time.. The shows are getting get longer and longer though, feels like you could lose a good 10-15 looks in the middle without much harm to the show.

Harnesses + long coats are definitely the high point for me.

Also like the way the singlet tops + waistbands and layered tshirts evoke dance uniforms

When you see dance costumes,” Dries explained, “it’s often one small element, which gives a hint of a costume. It’s about giving just that hint of a garment instead of the full-on thing.”







Nureyev knew one thing or two about prints

DRIES VAN NOTEN MENSWEAR SPRING SUMMER 2015 PARIS

The lither bodies of male dancers, and the clothing they wear both on and off the stage, was where designer Dries Van Noten began this season’s sartorial conversation. A collection expressly focused on exploring or encouraging movement.

But as celebratory as this show was of a form of artistic expression, that is often fraught with emotion, this line up with its scooped necked tops, ribbed knitted waistband trousers, and feather light shirts, was actually rather restrained. Especially coming from a designer who is known for his masterful work with prints, color mélanges, and daring embellishments.

Van Noten’s choice to pull back, regroup, and push out into unchartered territory is somewhat understandable. After all the designer spent the last year trolling through his creative past and delving into self analysis to produce the exceptional retrospective of his work that is currently on display in Paris at Musée des Arts Décoratifs.

This collection felt very much like a clear break from all that has come before it. Bare chested models took to the designer’s catwalk in sensual (not a word usually associated with Van Noten) dressing gown coats, fluid garments cut in an illustration print of nude male dancers and tricky harness like vests- with only one shoulder being covered in a swath of fabric- strapped to the body.

Sounds a little crazy, but that's what I get. Think it's awesome.

Not crazy at all. I'd say it sums up Dries himself. Looks like a history teacher but turns out to be cooler than everyone you know.
