A Belgian fashion designer and an eponymous fashion brand. In 2005, the New York Times described him "one of fashion's most cerebral designers". His style is said to be "eccentric", and fell out of favor during the long period of minimalistic fashion in the early 1990s, only to make a come back towards the mid 2000s, culminating with Van Noten's winning of the International Award of the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 2008.
Dries Van Noten has, once again, showed us that words like simplicity and rusticity are not included in his dictionary, neither in his collection this summer 2013 .
From plaid pattern, floral print, 3D flowers, silky shirts and dresses, oversized forms to a multiple layering, the collection was a clear statement that women can perfectly manage through summer heat without necessarily taking off their clothes.
The plaid pattern and matching it with floral print was originaly worn by the famous teenager of the 90's Tv show 'My so called life' Angela Chase, who's wardrobe made her character a fashionable but yet decontracté teen, dealing with adolescent's life.
Can't wait for the next summer to see our-favourite-designer-of-all-time's collection being adapted to fit the street style taste and need.
