I’ve recently reinterpreted this first look. Khaki skinny jeans, checked shirt, camel ballet flats, black trench that has a navy reflection, just as the Van Noten one, in the sun light (come to think of it, my Mango black trench is almost identical with this one), brown bag and leopard bracelet. The hair stayed tucked in the collar, of course. I loved it so much that I wore it two days in a row (lucky me I don’t have to meet the same people every day). And, subsequently, I wanted to revisit the entire Dries Van Noten collection from the fall of 2010 and give it a moment on my blog, because it’s one of those great collections that deserve to be brought back into the limelight.
I could very well think up an entire wardrobe based on this collection alone. It had the classic menswear tailoring, but the ladylike shapes too, high heels and long leather gloves, but sweatshirts too, glamorous sunglasses, but military details too, elegant silhouettes, but comfortable separates and edgy styling too. In short, a beautiful and effortless blend of all the elements that convey a chic, wearable, simple with a je ne sais quoi look that I’m aiming for on a daily basis. It had class and it had the street aesthetic too. I couldn’t ask for more.
Have a wonderful weekend!
