This Paris fashion week, Dries Van Noten continues his narrative playing with vivid hues, with yellow and orange as his primary playground. Models wore plastic sequin tops and skirts, and shoes of the same color, color-blocked seamlessly with tailored white pieces to complete the ensemble. Floral prints mixed excellently with checkered patterns on various dresses. These vibrant colors also gave a role in classic-fitting satin jackets and dresses, adorned with a Watercolor print.

Traditional summery stripes were given an asymmetrical twist in the collection's various skirts, pants, and dresses (even the shoes) paired with sheer florals and neutral coats. Sharp symmetrical bangs and thick black eyeliner dominated the beauty looks, an aesthetic that continues to thrive as fashion week moves along. The models' hair was also adorned with bright blue feathers, adding to the collection's eccentrics.

The designer's use of wrapping was a highlight, as certain looks were paired with a yellow netting wrapped around variously patterned skirts. Heavy usage of fringe and feather sashes added to the collection's overall bohemian vibe. The athletic sandal made a huge comeback in the previous season, and Noten continued to make the shoe a staple in this show, often made sophisticated with a vibrant print.
