Dries Van Noten recently unveiled his Spring/summer 2010 collection this week as Paris fashion week gets underway, Van Noten once again adopts the use of very unique ethnic colors and fabric patterns, couple with a variety of textiles said to have been sourced from 6 different countries. The collection includes a great mix of classic clean cut pieces like simple trenchcoats, shirts and blazers. All very simple timeless designs that is perhaps a reflectiion of Van Noten’s dislike for the six-month lifespan of many seasonal fashion products. Certainly a very impressive collection overall as expected from the Antwerp six designer
Thom Browne is certainly no stranger to interesting presentations having seen the way he presented his collection at Pitti Uomo earlier, not to mention his ski-inspired Moncler collection in 2009, Browne steps up once again this season for the 2010 Moncler Gammer Bleu collection unveiled this week iin Milan fashion week, the fashion show featured models walking around the circumference of a large swimming pool, alongside the pool of swimmers lthat lapped the pool continiously in perfectly synchronous pace. The collection again sees a nice sartorial collocation combined with the functional sporting spirit of Moncler. Take a look below.
Alexander McQueen. Titled “Analyze That!” the collection’s conceptual idea was earlier previewed by the David Sims film presentation, which depicted an artists’ psychological battle with his inner self. As with most McQueen designs, the collection includes a number of interesting pieces like hand prints on blazers, pen drawings on shirts and paint splattered workboots, while the rest of the collection were somewhat more sartorial with a twist and a great bohemian feel. The unstructured trousers, and lazy shirts and knitwear create an impressive effect while the paint splatter is executed in a distinctive way
