Heavenly Dries Pixies in Paris

I look forward to Paris Fashion Week for 1 big reason: Dries Van Noten. The Belgian designer does luxe bohemian like no one else. His collections are surprising, full of life and fantasy. This particular collection merged surf with embroidery, calf fur with Indian-inspired fabrics, and of course his hippie/boho vibe signature was woven throughout.

Style.com hailed, “The sheer beauty of Dries Van Noten’s Spring collection was inspired by John Everett Millais’ Ophelia, the Pre-Raphaelite image that launched a million hippie fantasies. In the painting, Ophelia floats dreamily in a magical woodland setting. Van Noten re-created the mood with dusky golden lighting and a mossy forest floor—actually a carpet specially created by the Argentinean artist Alexandra Kehayoglou.”

It was nothing short of breathtaking.
