SS16 Ruffle Trend & Dries Van Noten

Dries Van NotenDries Van Noten’s spring collection mixed 30’s and 40’s escapism with Hollywood glamour.

Shobhan’s buying perspective: Often hidden from the runway are Dries’ most iconic embroideries that later become collectibles. This season we discovered two middle length coats with forest green embroidery that showed Dries’ most subtle sophistication. I was also captured by a specific ruffled jacket, not because of its feminine appeal, but rather its highly 3D spatial design.
