Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2012

Dries next season will be a boxy, manly shape; a reverse from the tailored workmanship we are used to seeing and regarding as great. Random pattern blocking seems to be in, as seen at Mary Katrantzou as well. The longer hemline of the skirt, that draped pattern of the pants, and the loose shoulder shape: these shapes need to be worn with extreme caution because the wrong body type will be accentuated in places no one wants to be accentuated in. I love the fold-over clutches, kind of a continuation of this season's trend. Beautiful workmanship!
