Reworking couture-like elements into an everyday format, Dries Van Noten’s SS19 collection spliced colour and pattern to eclectic effect. The cotton Heloviko top is imagined in multicoloured plaid, splashed with panels of neon that accentuate its slouchy oversized fit and dark navy sleeves.
One of the influential ‘Antwerp Six’ design collective, Belgian designer Dries Van Noten launched his eponymous label in 1986. His eccentric womenswear collections are renowned for their heavy use of layering, contrasting prints, sharp colours and dynamic tailoring, which define his aesthetic. Today, Van Noten exclusively sells ready-to-wear fashion, as the acclaimed designer only believes in statement dressing that is both versatile and iconic.
