Dries Van Noten’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection was shown at the former sorting center for the French Post Office and Customs Office. It was appropriate considering the concept behind the clothes involved sorting through different eras of menswear, reinterpreting and re-contextualizing notions of timelessness. The suit, for example, isn’t going anywhere, but in order to meet […]
Dries Van Noten takes the old and makes its new with his fall-winter 2018 collection. The Belgian designer presented a wardrobe complete with tartan, broderie anglaise, and crocheted details.

It's Hump Day! What fragrance are you wearing? I'm in Dries Van Noten par Frédéric Malle, because ShellyW reminded me of it yesterday. Reminder: 5/12 will be Lessons Learned Friday...
While it's always great to see a collection filled with relatively practical looks that you actually want to wear — whether at Dries Van Noten or Isabel Marant or Lemaire or Céline — it's also fun to see a collection that's unabashedly pretty, formal and unsuitable for most of our everyday...

Referencing a label’s history and creative DNA is certainly nothing new — not even this week. Even Anthony Vaccarello’s Tuesday night breast baring, laser-cut leather and slouchy boot party at the Saint Laurent show was intended as “rereading” (in the words of the show notes) of the namesake founder’s...

Amber Valletta, Kristina de Coninck, Nadja Auermann, and more walked.
Rabbit rabbit rabbit! Adiós, February. What fragrance are you wearing? I'm wearing the (not even slightly freaky) Dries Van Noten par Frédéric Malle. Reminder: 3/3 will be Let Your Freak Frag Fly Friday...
