Dries Van Noten is one of my favorite designers because you can always expect to see something colorful and different than anything else you have seen in the season. This years collection was all about mismatching a variety of prints from different countries. Van Noten stuck with an earthy palette, pulling prints from Uzbekistan to South Asia.

Stiff square jackets were juxtaposed against beautifully wraped and draped skirts. Silky shirts and trousers looked European chic, but also looked comfortable enough to wear on a 10 hour plane ride.

What I love most about Dries Van Noten is his understanding of patterns and color. He has an eye for being able to put the most intricately detailed patterns together and making the match look seamless. A lot of times, too much pattern can look like a Pollock gone wrong, but Van Noten knows how to put together prints that create a beautiful silhouette.
