Show Review: Dries Van Noten Spring 2012
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

Dries Van Nonten celebrates nature’s perennial resurrection for Spring 2012 with images of sprawling mountainscapes, hazy, saturated rainforests, and bursts of exploded floral print.


Trading last spring’s pervasive color blocking with pattern blocking, charcoal line drawings are interrupted by vibrant panels of bubbling brooks and blooming buds. Textured solids in black, white, and navy blue are brought to life with curling tendrils in damask patterns, mimicking leaves unfolding from the ends of bony branches.

Cuts further illustrate the inherent duality in this collection, from neat, streamlined silhouettes to those decidedly affected and unnatural. Looks are prim and practical on top with razor-sharp collars buttoned to the hilt, and exude flirtatious effervescence on the bottom with gratuitous ruffle and peplums.

Van Noten steps out of nature for a bit with a screen print of neon lights reading “circus circus,” bringing us out of glorious nature, back to the unnatural habitats we’ve build for ourselves.


Models walked in clean makeup and slicked back ponytails, with ribbon tie sandals, and occasionally, oval framed shades.

I love the landscapes on all the garments. What I particularly enjoy about this collection: the clothes are cut in a way I think a lot of women, even those who might have a few more curves to spare, might be able to wear. What do you think?

    I love the prints on these, very unique and cool.

  2. Beautiful collection. I must say I’m glad to see the end of color blocking. Just couldn’t get into it. However, this pattern blocking seems even more difficult for my 5 feet even frame to pull off. Any suggestions?

    Very nice shoes, and very inspiring outfits!

    Yes these could hide food bellies effectively.
