Dries Van Noten Men’s Collection Fall/Winter 2011

Day 2 of Paris Fashion Week and the Musée Bourdelle played host to a collection that was, in the designers own words, glamorous without being feminine.  By channeling a ginger mid-70s David Bowie rather than the early-70s Ziggy Stardust, I’d say mission accomplished.  The strategy of casual paired with dressy made for some captivating looks.  Navies, whites, and camels came together in mixed incarnations of pants, overcoats, and buttoned-up dress shirts.  DVN also did his part on the velvet front with maroon two-piece suit offering.  I’m not one for the baggy pants, the slimmer fitting two-tone pants are another story.  Highlights of the collection included the well tailored white double-breasted jacket, fur-collared coats, fur jacket, and lace-up boots.  If the collection could be summed up in one piece, it would have to be the gold embroidered navy jacket – tempered flamboyance anchored in confident masculinity.  Sadly, the only thing missing was the iconic Bowie tee.  Maybe next time.
