Dries Van Noten Spring / Summer 2015 Collection

The inspiration for Dries van Noten’s Spring / Summer 2015 collection was inspired by John Everett Millais’ Ophelia and William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The Ophelia was the Pre-Raphaelite image that launched a million hippie fantasise with Ophelia that floats dreamily in a magical woodland setting. This mood was recreated by Dries Van Noten with dusky golden lighting and a mossy forest carpet on the floor. The gossamer lightness and gilded fabrics loaned a fairy tale element, colours were deep and muted, as if illuminated by sunlight filtered through trees.
