that nineties thing that was a trend in new york, best done by phillip lim? well dries van noten blew the doors right off it, showing the most upscale version of the trend since marc jacobs’ perry ellis debut and his own fall 2006 collection. plaids were done in large scale and tiny checks, and florals were oversized and even three dimensional. even though the silhouettes were loose, it was still sophisticated, with pointy toe pumps, ladylike clutches, and sleek shades. above all, it all felt light and effortless, not the heavy flannel and corduroy layers of yore.
