Dries Van Noten Spring Summer 2016

Clothes that have a feel like they are from some another time (future as much as past) has always been Dries Van Noten’s signature. You could see how the retro glam would be a slam for Van Noten’s critics. The 1940’s were all over this show. But they were filtered through the 1980s when club kids would tart up in vintage gear, and too much was never enough.Van Noten captured that spirit perfectly, right down to the green-glittered eyelids. The 1940s, like the 1980s and like now, were times on the brink. Here we go again, dancing on the lip of the volcano.
