Dear Shaded Viewers,

Dries Van Noten showed his epic collection all about sensuality, fluidity and just pure beauty. Textiles mixed fragile with raw, sensuality with strength. As I was leaving the location I heard more than one person in the audience saying they were near tears. Flowers were blooming, gold foil was integrated in sculpted coats. Vintage techniques and textiles were brought into view and well, it is all about beauty and that is the essence of a Dries Van Noten timeless collection.
