Dries Van Noten Fall 2016 RTW Channels Marchesa Casati

There is something quite spectacular about a Dries Van Noten collection and it has everything to do with the designer’s use of colors and designs to bring forth something both thematic and undeniably artistic. From the hairstyles to the makeup, the outfits worn and the accessories layered on, the Dries Van Noten fall/winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear collection that was shown off on the Paris Fashion Week runway was pretty awesome to behold. From its star spangled golden skirts to the black and greening oozing prints to the spaghetti strapped dress, we found a line-up that really does quite a bit for us.

Dries Van Noten Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Paris Fashion Week

What we had not noticed as a trend until the fall season and what we truly love now is the constant use of golden creations. From lovely pencil skirts to ankle boots, high-neck sleeveless tops and suit jacket lapels, intriguing decorative accents and clutch handbags, we kept on seeing gold all over. We have seen it in other collections, we shall be seeing it for a while yet and we can freely admit to falling in love with the use of the metallic hue again and again as it is rather impeccably utilized.

While the golden aspects are quite large on the trends list, we also find ourselves enjoying the gorgeous looks of the leopard prints, appearing as coat linings for Dries Van Noten, as well as on pants, on capes, full-length suits, tops, skirts and more. Both the men and women modelling the outfits are seen in the darling look, along with the stripes that are so big for 2016. We see stripes on pants, ties, pajama sets, skirts and blazers in this print, while the colors that really draw our attention other than the golden effects are the shades of purple that lean towards amethyst gem hues especially. We also see some mustard yellow, some scarlet pieces along with maroon, and quite a few shades of green, all complementing one another and giving us a men’s and women’s lineup of 65 different creations that have a rather unique attraction for the fashion lover.

While the clothing itself is awe-inspiring in its artistry, the makeup is probably the second largest focus, turning the models into some rather interesting zombies, with raccoon ringed eyes. We have a hard time describing it as anything really, for it is a combination of tear smudges, reverse cat eye drawings and inhuman inspirations, putting together models that really know how to make an entrance, the gazes freaking us out from time to time and detracting from the actual collection, something we certainly do not want to do.

Then again, the coats, suits, and separates combinations are so intriguing that we cannot help but keep shuffling all the pieces around and trying to envision them on our own bodies. It is crazy mixed with professionally chic, all of it complemented by some amazing prints the often androgynous looks certainly needed to spice things up.
