Dries Van Noten knows how to leave the best footprint. For this SS16 Dries Van Noted showcased on of the most eccentric yet elegant collections ever. His palette was based on mustard, purple with hot pink, orange with gold, overlapping fabrics such as jacquards, satin, tweed, tulle…
“This season it was really about the flamboyant woman – she’s not just eccentric, because that can be old with 25 cats,” he continued backstage. “She wants to live, she wants to show herself, she wants to enjoy life. She knows how to mix things and she dares to.” He said.
Loved the mix from sequined organic patterns and graphic geometric prints.

ONE THOUSAND AND ONE NIGHTS.
Nights in with satin never reaching the end. That says the song.
Silk and satin were key fabrics for SS16, with especially satin sheen a popular choice for luxurious eveningwear. The first key of the season will be the slip on dress, showcased in so many shows from Balenciaga to Celine, Haider Ackermann and so many more. The slips dress appears re-invented made of slimmer fabrics like satin and trimmed with lingerie lace and chiffon. Without any doubt the sexiest trend of next season.
While some may think of a casual picnic when they see the gingham print, the pattern is seriously chic this season. I love gingham print since always! but for SS16 will be the key print of the season. The trend started past season and for SS16 was spotted in so many shows such as Victoria Beckham, Celine and Stella McCartney.
Remember this and note it careful, high street fashion will be full of it, before it’s too late join the monochrome gingham trend, from dresses to separates, the best way to wear it is when it is unexpected. Gingham will give you the fresh update you are waiting for!
