In preparation for his exhibition next year at Les Arts Décoratifs, Dries Van Noten spent some time digging around in the museum’s archives. Judging by his Spring/Summer 2014 presentation in Paris, he emerged from those rooms with more than a handful of flowers. The collection played with florals in almost any form imaginable — prints on silk, cotton, or sheer fabrics in shades that ranged from from gothic to vivid. Silhouettes, too, spanned the spectrum from sporty — board shorts and tank tops — to flowing silk robes and crisp tailoring embroidered with gold bullion. Adding to the overall effect of the show was live drumming from Cindy Blackman Santana, along with shimmering Mylar sheets and freshly-cut floral arrangements.
