In-Store Exclusive: Dries Van Noten SS20 Collection
With Dries Van Noten showcasing his latest AW20 collection at Paris Fashion Week today - what better time but to look at the New Season products we have in store from the SS20 collaborated collection with Christian Lacroix. The Antwerp born designer teamed up in secret with Parisian fashion-turned-costume designer, Christian Lacroix, and it deservedly sent fashion fanatics wild as soon as it hit the runway.
Floral Trousers - £425.00 | Statement Sleeve Vest Top - £535.00
The show featured Jacquard prints, Ostrich trimmings, balloon sleeves, ribbons, animal print, tiered skirts, beautiful tailoring, asymmetrical pattern-cutting, polka dots, layering, sequin embellishment, costume jewels and trains of fabric trailing off the runway. There was also an array of vibrant colours used: fuchsia pink, tiger orange, golden yellow, sangria red, military green and the perfect sky blue. The obvious Lacroix elements consisted of Edwardian style sleeves, ostrich feather hair accessories, a multitude of jacquard prints and oversized ribbons on everything. Style this with the signature decorated coats and golden embroidery with a minimalist, modern touch from Dries and you have a collection of dreams.
Leopard Print Jacket - £805.00 | Floral Skirt - £665.00
The designers may have started their careers in the same decade but they have completely different backgrounds in design. Dries stepped into the famous 'Antwerp's 6' aesthetic and Lacroix went down the route of full blown eccentricity. However, this one-season collaboration shows how opposites attract and together they created a beautifully made and perfectly styled collection for SS20 - ready for you to shop in store now.
Ruched Balloon Sleeve Jacket - £710.00 | Leopard Print Shorts - £355.00
