Agh, it's Clash Of The Prints!

Dries Van Noten.

There are a lot of things that I love about the s/s 10 Dries Van Noten looks. I do have a love for tribal prints, so this should be an obvious designer love for me. But its not just that. Composing and creating the outfit as a whole is something that I value very highly, and when a catwalk show comes along and I find myself falling in love with every look, there can be only one reason why. Dries Van Noten has managed not only to create beautiful printed pieces on their own, but combine them together you get something so much more than beautiful clothing. Grey oversized jumpers 'thrown over' tribal prints give an effortless contrasting city look which I adore. And the clash of patterns seem to look as they were meant to go together. That is pretty genius from Dries Van Noten.

I do find myself quite in awe of those printed trousers and I am currently looking for an high street version for myself, but I have mainly come across floral prints which is not what I want. It seems very daring but I think with simple tees and tops, it could work. I'm not so sure if I'm ready for the print clashing...

Next have some black and white style ones...
And they also blue printed taper ones, very Dries Van Noten.
River Island also have quite a few animal print ones.

  1. Hey there,
    Thanks so much for your lovely comment and for following!
    Lol yes, Mr. Bingley was really sweet too, how he always got nervous when talking in front of Jane :P

    I'm following :)

  2. I love the prints! I'm more of a subtle dresser and tend to stick to plain items, but the clashing of prints which have been seen at Dries Van Noten and also Proenza Schouler (one of my favourite designers at the moment) have thought up such innovative designs, which I love.

    I saw some printed trousers in Zara, which looked really comfy and had a nice design - but I don't think I suit that look very well! :) Chloe X
