Dries Van Noten has offered up a wardrobe for the ultimate party girl with his latest collection.
The Belgian fashion designer unveiled his fall/winter 2020 line as part of Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday, with the 65-piece range including sequinned separates and silk dresses with bold floral motifs.
Speaking backstage, Van Noten explained that he was intrigued by the concept of “nocturnal glamour”.
“It’s about going out, enjoying life-having fun, that’s very important!” he commented, according to Vogue. “I thought of this party girl. Something mysterious. Something dark. But I questioned how far it could go, while staying contemporary.”
Opening the show, a model stepped out in a feathered skirt, long brown cardigan, plaid jacket, and knee-high brown suede boots. The designer then introduced a fun jungle-inspired print consisting of bright green leaves and pink flowers on velvet jumpsuits, silk kimonos, high-neck tops, and PVC trench coats.
Elsewhere, party-ready essentials included the likes of black leather trousers, long lime green sequin dresses, crushed purple velvet pants, ’70s-inspired snake print dresses and coats, fringed skirts, and metallic jacquard dresses with ’80-style puff sleeves.
The vibe was emphasised by the eye-catching hairstyles, with the models sporting neon paint, perhaps influenced by Billie Eilish’s signature look, on their roots.
To conclude, Van Noten served up a parade of eveningwear pieces, with highlights including a purple sequin bolero jacket, bright purple sequin dress with pockets, shiny black tuxedo jackets, and a long black gown with feather detailing on the hemline.
