Dear Shaded Viewers,

To say that this collection is dreamy is an understatement. All of the flower prints come from the actual flowers in Dries Van Noten’s garden. The collection is intrinsically Dries Van Noten, it is all about poetry, elegance, comfort and frankly dreams.  It is all about desire and I for one cannot wait for the collection to be delivered to the shops and my dream is to fill my closet with so many of the pieces. They are timeless. Dries never gets old. The finale came out with Roy Orbison – “Crying” and I have to say the words…”I thought that I was over you, but it is true so true…I love you even more than I did before…….but darling what can I do.” I cannot even imagine ever getting over Dries.
