Dries Van Noten- WOMENSWEAR collection Autumn-Winter 2016/17 in Paris (with interview)

Location: A shed on rue St Petersbourg, dark room, slow music, like a beating heartInspiration: Roman marquise, Marchesa Luisa Casati: smokey eyes, hair slicked back in shapes of waves, a longline silhouette with a big long skirt & a play on volumesFocus: leopard and animal prints, pearls, long capes & dressing gown coats, burgundy velvet, slip on dress shirts or worn over trousers, bermuda trousers or baggy trouser suits, nipped in waist and double breasted jackets, gold and lamé, snakeNote: Jewellery details, boots with beaded pearl heels, feathers around the neck & the poetry and the emotion that always radiates from a Dries Van Noten show Interview from Dries Van Noten:The Dries Van Noten woman is really passionate; she is inspired by Marquise Luisa Casati. But what inspired me was the passion between the Marquise and the renowned Italian poet Gabriele D’Annuzio, the two really wanted to delve further into the aesthetic side of art and beauty These are all references from the Marquise Casati, who used to dress in animal skins but she also had real animals at her house like a cheetah, ocelots, panthers and she wore live snakes round her neck like jewellery, so she’s a very inspiring woman. Sometimes the silhouette is longline and then there are oversized elements to play the masculine/feminine card Music of the show, (donot reuse for more than 7 days after the show)
