Obsession Alert: Dries Van Noten Spring 2013 RTW

Obsession Alert! Obsession Alert! Obsession Alert! Dries Van Noten's Spring 2013 Ready to Wear line is absolutely my favorite line, pretty much ever... and that is saying a lot. Maybe because it channeled 90's grunge, baby doll dresses, florals, sheer fabrics and elastic waist bands all into one collection or maybe it's just because it all looked sooooooo good. I don't know but what I do know is that I might just have to save all my money comes Spring time so I can pick up one DVN item for my very own.

Tim Blanks of summed it up beautifully:

 "It was simplest, coolest in an oversize gray sweater (cashmere), layered with a plaid shirt (organza, again) hanging loose over floral-print pants (mousseline) over shorts (couldn't see). It was more complex when couture-friendly silhouettes, like emphasized hips on jackets, sack backs, peplums, or smock sleeves, were stirred into the mix with clashing plaids or faded florals, the latter absorbed from the dresses of the women in the Lucian Freud retrospective that Van Noten had seen and loved in London. One floral slipdress turned to reveal a plaid back, which felt like a straightforward distillation of the boy/girl thing. And those flowers were important too, because they were all screen-printed. Dries turned his back on the digital world, for this season at least, in favor of the pure craft of the human hand. "

OK, now I'll let you look at the pictures:

UGH, Obsession Worthy am I right?
