Oh Dries Van Noten, can we be friends? I am seriously impressed by his Spring/Summer collection. The catwalk was awash with tartan, check and grid patterns. Usually I would shake my head in terror contemplating an outfit consisting of various tartan prints, but Van Noten makes it look easy. Importantly, it's the mix of different textures and fabrics which keeps the clashing prints in check. For example, combining light, chiffon layers with structured waistcoats keeps the collection looking modern and fresh; fluid lines turned boxy for the ultimate cool girl look. The added 3D flowers bring volume and interest to the clothing. And the colour palette is just perfect for me. Just amazing.
