In a true fashion nerd dream, each seat at today’s Dries van Noten show came with a rose with a small label DVN*XCLX. Two design power houses—van Noten and Christian Lacroix—have reportedly been working together on the Spring 2020 collection for the past five months. The results were like a Dries meets Lacroix fever dream—polka dots, cropped jackets, feathers, more feathers, bold shoulders, prints, color, black and white. There’s a lot to unpack here, but the collection is exuberant, it’s maximalist yet polished, it’s joyful—and we can all use a little bit of that right now.
