DRIES VAN NOTEN womenswear AW 2013 | dissection 0.1: LAYERING

Dries Van Noten AW 2013

Dries Van Noten‘s collections, as well all know, are characterised by his use of prints, colours, fabrics and the combination of the masculine and the feminine. Layering is one aspect that is also associated with the brand’s style, which is evident in his collections, season after season. For AW 2013, tiered pieces cleverly multiplied its layering effect, in the form of long tiered skirts, dresses and skirted trousers, giving the silhouette shape and structure.

selection: JULIUS AW 2012

Futuristic and avant-garde. Dark and dystopic. Julius AW 2012 collection consists of long and lean pieces in black (some in off-white). The drape on some of the garments create a bit of volume to the look but without ruining his signature lean silhouette.

African-inspired menswear collection (SS13) by TRINE LINDEGAARD

Trine Lindegaard used vibrant and refreshing colours for her spring/summer 2013 collection. The look is sporty, which include very wearable pieces, using bold colours layered over darker palette. The geometric patterns of the ‘kita’, a wonderful and unique West African fabric, not only gives the garments a more graphic and modern look but also raises awareness of the ancient craft. It also promotes the traditional (and almost extinct) fabric as well as the African communities who produce this fantastic textile.
