Dries Van Noten

Autumn 12

The East influenced Dries Van Noten, with Japanese, Chinese and Korean iconography, including the Chinese dragon, providing the biggest inspiration for his famous print executions. The Orient also informed the palette as mandarin, sunflower yellow and cornflower blue amounted to a sunset-infused collection with oriental floral patterns used in abstract fashion, on an eclectic mix of contrasting and mismatched panelling on dirndl skirts and midi-length dresses.

The autumn 12 trend for military also stood to attention with khaki and olive green wool officer coats, which also collided with print on a beautiful overcoat, updating and giving unique appeal to a tried and tested shape. Print looked most refreshing when used against crisp white, and the shirts and blazers in particular will ensure that for autumn 12, Dries Van Noten is full of Eastern promise.
