Dries Van Noten is a Belgian designer who is shown looking at his past collections while trying to bring together his men's and women's new shows. It is interesting seeing his processes, developing his own fabrics and what I like about his style is that so many if his beautiful clothes look like you would want to wear them, or at least a cheaper more diffused version that may filter down to the high street.
The shows were beautiful , in amazing sights around Paris. When I see these fashion shows I am always surprised by the young gamine models on the runway, wondering why there is no diversity on stage. When the designers spout off saying they love women, yet only seem to design for the one type of young tall and slim body type.
We get a small glimpse into the designers private life. The lovely country home with beautiful gardens that he shares with his partner, and most touching if all was his lovely dog, who gets little bits of play time in between jobs. 4/5
