Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2012 Pt 1: Dries Van Noten

Dries Van Noten + Oriental theme = PERFECTION!!!

After looking over this collection over and over, I have decided my favourite piece is the simple dark navy silk blouse, with the half-embroidered sleeves. Dries Van Noten found his inspiration at the V&A museum, taking pictures of the archives, and making collages of some of the oriental/Chinese prints. But my favourite pieces were mostly the gorgeous outerwear, like the jacket/outfit in the second picture below, as well as the coat below it (pretty much all the coats and parkas in this collection).

One of my favourite looks in this collection...

This coat is just divine...

My favourite piece, I think...

LOVE this parka!!!

Look at those shoes! Love the 'plaques' on the skirt!

Don't know what's going on with those pants, but the cut of the shirt intrigues me...

I associate beautiful orange shades with Dries Van Noten, and this ensemble is just brilliant...

I LOVE this jacket! The cropped length, the embroidery, the fur trim...

I love the simple silhouette of this dress paired with the elaborate print

Love this jacket belted with a peplum effect...absolutely gorgeous!

I love the way the sleeves are elasticated above the elbows...

  1. Hmmm.... What could be Ms B.'s fav collection of all?? ;) What a picture heavy posting, gorgeous! :-D And indeed, the collection is truly amazing. The embroideries are in one word marvelous! The dark blue jacket and dresses - the military green jacket with large collar and fur. Also the multi-colored/patterned dresses are just beautiful!
