being someone who was slow to the idea of mixing prints, i was late on the dries van noten bandwagon. but for the past few seasons, i have loved everything about it, from the windowpane check and shine from s/s 2009 to the military-meets-floral fall 2010 and of course the current season. for spring, he used art studies and photos as prints, then mixed them on traditional couture silhouettes like peplum waist pants, drop waist dresses and egg shaped jackets and coats. my favorites were the images of a twinkling night sky that signaled a new way to do evening, or just adding some sparkle to the everyday.
