I know that my intention behind this weekly feature is to focus on a female from history or of today who is a particular inspiration to me. This past week, however, I have found myself compelled to share this designer’s new work with you.
Dries Van Noten is probably my favorite fashion designer. There is just something so interesting about his collections. To me every piece is perfect. And I rarely find that I feel that way about fashion. I am prone to nitpick. To want to fiddle with the details and the runway presentations.
Not with this artist. I think his use of print, pattern and texture are always spot on. The way each piece fits in with the others in the collection.
In the very best way possible, I feel enervated and completely satisfied.
Left with but one phrase: “enfin, ça y est.”

The pieces are much more high end than I am able to afford.

And isn’t that what it is all about, after all?
In gratitude for his understanding of what a woman wants.
And wrapping it all up with the prettiest of bows…
