Paris Shows – Dries Van Noten

A key look from the Dries Van Noten Spring-Summer 2015 show.

It appears there are two type of men emerging from the shows for Spring Summer 2015. The first is one is an overtly masculine, almost industrial machine, best seen at Alexander Wang and the second is the graceful and sensual aesthete, inspired by Rudolf Nureyev, at Dries Van Noten. Fabrics were flowing and elegant, as would be expected of a ballet inspired collection, satin and silk shirts and dressing gowns accompanied high waist trousers, with knitted waistbands and again, deep cut, open neck shirts. It was all dressed with richly embroidered matador-esque accessories, tan leather belts, which bound together shirts and coats, and finished with slip on leather ballet pumps. Colours were deep, rich and sumptuous. Dries had said that he was tired of the cool rock, masculine guy of his recent past and that “It was time for something completely different. I wanted a sensual man.”
