THE HITS:

Dries Van Noten

“I adore this! It's easily one of the best collections of the season for me. I never thought I'd say this as I normally dislike strong prints and patterns, but I would and want to wear every single piece of it. It's such a fun yet chic collection and it's amazing how clean and slick it looks when there's so much going on.” [sore]

“A Dries Van Noten Collection is always a breath of fresh air. This one is sublime, chic, marvelous. Can't get tired of looking at it. Those lines and silhouettes with that mix of prints that he does so well is amazing. Love him!” [Rose Pulchra]

“Gauguin meets graphism! This is so good. He uses elements that put together should look so wrong but it makes them look so right. I love the flowers clashing with the lines and the sequins. The silhouette is very fluid but quite strong, with shapes as well. He creates beauty in oppositions and makes it look so easy & chic.” [Wolkfolk]

Christophe Lemaire

“This is so much fun, everything looks so cozy and I want to wear all of it, crazily layered like that. Nice! Not usually a fan of his work because I'm not so much into 'oversized everything', but the silhouettes here work because the proportions are very cleverly done. And the styling makes this very appealing. Gorgeous collection.” [Psylocke]

“I want him and Phoebe Philo to make clothes for me. Or you know, just give me the whole collection for free.” [LolaSvelt]

“His work just makes me happy. It's quiet, it's romantic, it's artisanal (which relates to the romanticism for me)… it's timeless.” [Scott]

Undercover

“Wild, in an awe striking way. Last season got a big eye roll from me, but this season has me bowing down.” [HeatherAnne]

“This is legitimate perfection. I love it so so so much.” [vandekamp]
