Dries Van Noten Fall Winter 2023 Collection

Belgian designer Dries Van Noten is known for his exploration and integration of different materials and a variety of prints and motifs (they don’t call him the mix master for nothing). But for fall winter ’23 at Paris Fashion Week, the designer explored a quieter version of this, focusing on the relationship between wearer and materials, with a mix of strong tailoring (including outerwear) and delicate embellished layers focused on mesh.

Van Noten furthered balanced this mix by anchoring the looks in chunky platform boots and sling back flatforms — styles he has used many times over the years — and patent leather and brocade.
