Channeling ’70s maximalism.

Dries Van Noten‘s eye-popping SS19 collection was rich with Verner Panton-inspired prints, almost single-handedly creating a seasonal trend in the process. Though Fall/Winter 2019 is comparably understated — save for some brilliant tie-dye — Van Noten’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection introduces a sweeping array of brilliant patterns, photographic prints and intentional color-clashing, accented by ’70s-indebted wardrobe staples.

Lush florals aren’t the only brilliant pattern in Van Noten’s seasonal arsenal, as evidenced by the richly contrasting zebra prints, tiger camo, plaids, stripes and leopard spots that appear throughout the offering. Still, the flower detailing is at the core of the collection, with a host of sunflower, hibiscus and lily prints executed in warm and cool tones alike, affording the louche blazers, tiny shorts and sleek shirts a sensitivity at odds with the pattern juxtaposition. Neutral layers like white trousers and navy trench coats help ground the lofty looks, but for those craving maximalism, there’s plenty of pink silk slacks, green nylon coats and black leather vests to underscore the color play.

Elsewhere at Paris Fashion Week, Yohji Yamamoto toyed with faded photographic prints.
