The Antithesis: Dries Van Noten SS17

March 30, 2017

Minimalism is cast aside for summer, while florals emerge with enchantment unless you are Dries Van Noten. A step away from his previous collections, there is a certain darkness casting a shadow over slight signs of spring in the SS17 collection. Despite that, a particular warmth shines through with the floral prints embedded onto the dark fabrics to create the perfect contrast. Neutral palettes also dominate and denim reigns in various looks. You will have an edge to your every move with this coveted collection.

The Daley Dress is one of many pieces where the florals are an embellishment rather than the central quality. This printed piece is silky and billowy, creating the most comfortable silhouette that is feminine and demure. Similar items include the Poiretti Pants and the Flower Cruz Shirt that makes casual Sundays more fun. Who said florals can’t go with dark tones?  


Denim is a reliable fabric that can be worn for all occasions and is brought to light in this particular collection. The Viete Jacket will be your new go-to piece when you simply need to pull on something warm on an outing, while the Silvan Denim Skirt’s medium-length hem simply dreams of many outfits on the spot. Always in control, denim can rock your world.


Victorian sleeves have come back in style in this Bach Jacket. Cream palettes can also be seen on the Banim Jacket and the Patrick Shorts so that you can transcend all occasions. Formal and casual meet to become the perfect contemporary outfit of the day. Bringing classics to create something new encapsulates this Dries Van Noten collection.
