Paris Fashion Week: Dries Van Noten Spring 2009

26 11 2008


I have a secret crush on Dries.  I had to save up a long time for my first piece of his earlier collection.  I still have the jacket and still wear it constantly.  I love this dress.  It is so divine.


Dries Van Noten is a Belgian fashion designer.  Van Noten was born into a family of garment makers and traders: his father owned a menswear shop and his grandfather was a tailor. He graduated from the Antwerp Fashion Academyin 1980, and began his career in 1986, when he presented his first menswear collection in London as part of the Antwerp Six collective. That led to a small order from Barneys New York.  He lives and works in Antwerp.


He always design unique and beautiful accessory.  I want the necklace!!


Okay really want the necklace!


Lovely embroidery detail.


Cool bracelet.


Okay, okay I want all these breacelets, the purse and the necklaces!!


I want to live in this dress.  So chic and so comfortable.


These shoes are quite beautiful as well.  Reminded me of Hill Tribe people design sensibility.  Something so pleasing about silver balls strung up together against the black.  Want these too!


Another successful season for Dries Van Noten.
