Dries Van Noten Spring 2013

Grunge-inspired plaids and tartans came clashing together with feminine florals at Dries Van Noten and we honestly couldn’t love the contradiction more. Sheer tent-like skirts worn over pants and lightweightΒ plaid shirts tucked into a richly embroidered skirts . . . these covetable looks are sure to be emulated before you can say “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

    You posted one of my two favorite looks from the show! The one with the oversized grey sweater. Masterful mixing and layering, really. Also loved the look (not shown here) with the black embellished vest. Dries does it again!

    The florals are absolutely perfect. I can’t wear a small, delicate print; I need unapologetic, graphic! This collection is oddly wearable.. and odd, all at once! I love that.

    This is my favorite spring collection so far. It’s an elegant interpretation of 90’s grunge, Nothing too literal.

    Wow they even got the right sunglasses. A true tribute to Kurt Cobains fashion style and his influence in the nineties grunge look. I wouldn’t call his music grunge really I think it was just a really creative awesome punk rock group. I love Kurty his birthday was last wednesday my friends and I made a shrine and lit candles listened to all of Nirvana’s albums. I wish he didn’t leave us, but it’s cool these designers are keeping his spirit alive.
