If Dries Van Noten‘s flower power-imbued Spring/Summer 2020 show didn’t evoke the ’70s vibe enough, his continued foray into retro sensibilities for Fall/Winter 2020 sealed the deal. The designer doubled down on his floral messaging and print mixing at his latest Paris Fashion Week runway show, stoking the bohemian aesthetic with the help of plaids, animal prints and sumptuous textures.
Van Noten kicked off the free-spirited assortment with plenty of jackets topped with faux fur and ruffled blouses, pairing items like sheer floral button-ups with velvety pants and platform boots for a get-up worthy of any flower child. There was also a strong Western influence throughout the assortment, adding a touch of edge through pieces such as stud-trimmed blouses, relaxed denim jeans and fringed belts. Meanwhile, outerwear including blazers, pea coats and leather jackets brought refined elements to the outfits, in line with the Belgian designer’s recognizable eye for sophistication. Not to be outdone, the occasional puffer coat was offered in cropped and oversized silhouettes -— after all, Van Noten knows that it can’t all be roses and daisies in the wintertime.
