Wow. Dries Van Noten has swept me away to a glamourous world where utilitarian cottons and linens are gilded with gold, accented with Bedouin-inspired textiles, and adorned with pleated ruffles. The collection brought on a feeling of exploration and had me daydreaming of jetsetting to exotic destinations . . . wearing nothing but Dries, of course.
