Rich with expressive creativity, Dries Van Noten has loaded his spring paintbrush with a passionate palette inspired by India’s Holi Week, the Festival of Colors.

A designer that needs little introduction, Dries Van Noten has always been around fashion. He was first introduced to his passion through his family of tailors and high-end shop owners in Antwerp.

His upbringing and surroundings ultimately lead him to fashion school and into the industry in the 80’s, where he has remained a captivating presence since.

Taking cues from the engaging levity of cultural festivals across the globe and the bright and exciting colors of Holi specifically, the particular pieces from Van Noten’s Spring/Summer feature vibrant, bold hues – sometimes presented in seamless, flowing gradients, others in sharp streaks – with deliberate splashes of greens, oranges, blues and pinks dominating the designs.

These eye-catching looks offer an expertly paired flair of excitement alongside sleek, flattering silhouettes.

Complimenting these intense, color-rich patterns are Van Noten’s relatively simpler, but equally alluring, tops, bottoms, and footwear.

A smooth, creamy orange overcoat complemented by a luxurious weightiness, a long, subdued jacket able to be cinched and styled in multiple ways, and striking, retro-inspired sandals to complete any look are just a few designs of note.

Overall, Dries Van Noten offers energizing yet polished looks sure to brighten the spirits of not only the wearer, but everyone who encounters them.

To paraphrase Van Noten himself, as we continue to face uncertain times, he aims to create therapeutic and uplifting designs that will help us excel and thrive much better than a boring pair of gray or camel sweats.
