Dries Van Noten for his Fashion House conceived and proposed a Spring Summer 2024 collection focused on the balance and unbalance of volumes.
Connections and non-connections, conversations and non-conversations, dialogues and non-dialogues, the collection is defined in terms of “Unfamiliar Familiar”.
Every proposed dress captures attention because each one has details to highlight. Casual, formal, elegant, sporty are elements that intertwine, resulting in somewhat unexpected surprises.
An interplay between men’s garments revisited in women’s, short and long, braided, geometric and floral prints, horizontal stripes with an echo of the old rugby club, the bra becomes a dress with vertical stripes or checks.
Dries Van Noten conceived free collection trying to unite, correlate and create clothes according to his own ideational concept. No fear of making mistakes or conforming to some cliché but, interactions of volumes with the body. A union of fashion situations among past, present and near future.
