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.

Aggressive and goth-like American sportsmen along with slightly camp-coloured pieces, complete with whimsical prints. Experimental and highly stylised with a sense of humour, Thom Browne‘s a/w 2012 collection also consists of long skirts, mid-riff baring tops, exaggerated shoulders and cropped trousers.

STYLE: Medusa is a change in direction for the brand. Eugene Lin is going for a slightly tougher and visceral feel as a contrast to the signature cut and drape. Definitely more showstopper.
