    awesome

    I would wear a lot of that; not head to toe, but there are some great impact pieces in there.

    I don't think everyone will like this though.

    Dries has greater vision than probably any other designer right now. What talent and imagination to design such outlandish colors and patterns and know they will work together.

    I definitely won't be wearing the caterpillar stoles, and I was more drawn to FW13, but still some stuff I want.

    Those combat pants makes me want to wear something else other than jeans (and that is saying a lot).

    so, funny yesterday I was hoping to see more of a suit-based direction but the techno-sportswear is growing on me today. the print combining and graphic layering are pretty amazing. echoes of his previous stuff are there too -- camo prints, tie dye, nylon quilted bombers, hot colors, but still looks new overall. I'm amazed at how many garments he makes for each collection.

    the moto pants will be a big hit.

    Definitely one of the better collections shown so far. A lot of vibrant colors and zipper placements but in a good way.

    loved the colors a LOT (magentas used right). really like the geometrical shapes and the technical vibe in the collection as well. this is what raf should have evolved into.

    side note: I really like the way Dries himself dresses. so conservative!

    Great collection, even better than the last couple of seasons for me. I could see myself getting one of these zipped and cropped bomber thingys.

    this is my favorite so far. i think it's crazy in all the right ways (I guess I feel about this the way the Yohji guys feel about the Yohji show). i think the prints have a lot of impact but they're not overdone. maybe some of the black/yellow, like on the moto pants specifically, is pushing it a bit for me, as are the ruffled collars. but i think the color groups are generally awesome and the misses are very few. i like how many bombers were in there, and the outerwear generally looked great to me (i think outerwear is always one of Dries's strong points). But layering a pretty traditional tailored wool coat (or blazer) over those prints and tech fabrics and crazy biker pants just looks awesome to me.

    Fantastic stuff.
    Love the techno direction and the colors.

    The violet cropped front jacket (3rd from top) and those block patterned moto pants are grail worthy.
