Dries Van Noten’s Marilyn

Dries Van noten menswear spring 2016

I asked my husband if he would wear a Marilyn Monroe photo printed t-shirt. He said yes, but he quickly stressed out that he would leave the rest of the outfit out. I knew he would. I love the inspiration, I appreciate the creativity, it’s Dries Van Noten after all, but I am not a fan of the embellished, softened style (leopard printed trench, sequined or slouchy trousers) for men, not even for the sake of the show. But aren’t the t-shirt and that knitwear adapted from Erwin Blumenfeld’s classic 1950 Vogue cover just great? I would wear them myself, too. Even this kind of prints looks standoffish and a lot better on men’s clothes.
