Dear Shaded Viewers,

I fell in love with Dries Van Noten's new collection as soon as I saw it on the runway. Incredibly luxurious and intricate, it oozed luxury and refinement, cleverly balancing masculine shapes with gorgeous embellishment. The Belgian designer made a big statement with his feathered pieces, which were among my favorite in the showroom.

Reinventing florals once again, he came up with printed separates and mannish coats, which had a subtle charm. The effect was elegant and playful, too.
