Dries Van Noten‘s S/S16 RTW collection shown at Paris Fashion Week was an energetic collection for a daring, flamboyant woman. It was reminiscent of the 1950’s tattooed rockabilly movement, with 1950’s styling and silhouettes as well as edgy faux tattoo waves on tights and bodice hugging sheer tops under garments. Vibrant and fun color palettes and patterns ruled in the form of jacquard and brocade coats, jackets, wide-leg trousers and midi skirts, with a few vintage looks here and there. What makes this collection stand out is that each individual look is so detailed and unique. Favorite looks are the layered organza skirts with flamenco ruffle triangles, and the silk mustard cape with a mauve wing print over a relaxed grey square print trousers.
