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.

Walter Van Beirendonck Spring 2012 Menswear-2

selection: DRIES VAN NOTEN womenswear SS 2013

Moving away from the digital world, Dries Van Noten returned to the more traditional world of screen printing for his spring/summer 2013 ready-to-wear collection. As always, the result is just wonderful. The combination of checks and floral print is similar to the way the designer have been combining the masculine with the feminine for most of his collections. Showing relaxed and casual aesthetic, the collection also includes couture-like pieces in the form of the heavily flower-decorated skirts and jackets. Along with the loose silhouettes, other pieces are cinched in on the waist and some feature peplums accentuating the waist and the hips.

flashback: LANVIN MENSWEAR AW 2010

Looking back at Lanvin‘s menswear autumn/winter 2010 collection; the wide belt, wide-legged trousers, the rucksacks and the colour palette. It’s a great collection that combines formal tailoring with casual aesthetics. Cinched in waist creates a modern silhouette for menswear.

I can imagine that a unisex collection is difficult to market because although, women are open to be adventurous and be more androgynous, men are still old-fashioned when it comes to what they wear. Having said that, there are groups of men today that are happy to play with their looks; those who are confident to wear even a feminine ensemble. The great thing about Rad Hourani‘s unisex collection is that the pieces are neither masculine nor feminine. The look is modern and structured, which features wide and layered lapels in blue, white and petrol.

lots of black and leather @ JIL SANDER menswear A/W 2012

With the exception of two coloured sweaters – one in brown and the other in green – Jil Sander‘s menswear autumn/winter 2012 collection by Raf Simons is very monochromatic. Plenty of leather pieces such as belted coats, jackets, tops and trousers. Majority of the silhouettes are fitted and most of the looks are  slick and (of course) minimal.
