Dries Van Noten Channels the Renaissance for Spring


Camouflage and crochet joined forces with Renaissance paintings — sometimes in the same look — for Dries Van Noten’s Spring 2017 menswear collection in Paris Thursday. And, in keeping with this spirit of juxtaposition, he left many hems unfinished, many threads hanging loose, in contrast with the professional severity of his double-breasted coats and neat button-ups. For his Spring 2017 collection, Van Noten seems to have drawn his inspirations from everywhere — 16th century Italy, 20th century Americana, contemporary streetwear — and combined them to create something distinctly his own. Go behind the scenes of the Paris Fashion Week show with photographer Portia Hunt, here.
