The Dries Van Noten fall/winter 2020-21 collection is luxurious. There are many components that make it so opulent and not only concern the colors and prints – details of which the Belgian designer is always lavish. In fact, to increase its richness are brocades, velvets, silks, proportions, accessories. In short, everything. And so the Paris fashion week shines in the sign of Van Noten’s creativity.
Check, floral and python prints prevail. The last one above all on shoes, which are very reminiscent of those worn by David Bowie at the time of the iconic song Ziggy Stardust. Never mini, the lengths are midi or wrap around the whole figure. And speaking of silhouette, the body is wrapped in flowing, straight lines. There are no complicated corsets, belts and other tricks to mark the waistline. Easy is the password, with the elegance that has always distinguished the brand. Obviously. Coming to accessories, therefore, dramatic bags, in harmony with the mood of the Dries Van Noten fall/winter 2020-21 collection, are in contrast with the bijoux, in silver metal. Cold and bold come together to not make it all too much.
Among all this (apparent) confusion of combinations and material combinations, the perfect balance that the fashion designer has managed to create is surprising. And that’s why the collection was applauded copiously by every single row on the show. Of course, Dries Van Noten knows how to win the favor of many (not everyone, of course): he remains true to himself. He does what he wants and takes care of satisfying any need, both commercial and creative: if he wants to host the great French couturier Christian Lacroix – as he actually did for the spring-summer 2020 fashion show – he does it. And he doesn’t care if he is not the only one to take honors in the end. When you make art applied to clothing you can go further.
