Paris Men's Fashion Week - Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2013

Time to get camouflaged.  The collection was a perfect blend of prints and camouflage and only Dries Van Noten could do this with his unique and authentic design sensibility.

Camouflage prints were seen on shirts, crisp shorts, trousers and jackets in this fluid but at the same time structured ensemble in a colour palette of classic beige, green & khaki. Other key pieces of the collection were orange shantung blazer, parkas, tapered pants, nylon jackets, over sized sweater in multi hue, sheer shirts and tops.

With this presentation Dries shows a different way to integrate camouflage prints & patterns to a contemporary men’s wardrobe. Dries also took inspiration from fencing as he felt that it has its own elegance and the same could be seen on a jacket with Velcro lapel and quilted white vests that looked like breastplates.

This hyper masculine collection is indeed a fresh & a genuine approach towards men’s fashion.
