SO, the Dries Van Noten SS17 collection has arrived in Samui and it's beyond words, with vibrant colours, luscious flower prints, embellished neck adornments and dramatic silhouettes.
Perhaps it's best, then, that we leave the final say with Vogue.com, who wrote:
"What’s remarkable about Dries Van Noten is that he has the freedom to put exactly what he likes into a show, because he’s one of the most successful independent designers in the world. His collection can range from fairly basic black and white linen smocks and shorts for daywear (which it did), through a yellow rose chintz and black patent raincoat phase, to an evening section involving black balloon-sleeved off-the-shoulder blouses, big taffeta flounced skirts, and Edwardian beading in a totally unexpected share of azure blue. Beautiful, inclusive, and just a little bit weird it was."
