Commencing our always idiosyncratic coverage of Paris Fashion Week AW19, we begin with a totalizing vision: a complete fade to grey. Before venturing into a symphony of soft violets and floral prints (sourced from his garden and scanned into digital prints), the Belgian doyen of elegance, Dries van Noten, set the tone with a swathe of looks in all grey. Rather than a heavy mousey hue, Noten’s was warm and inviting, subtly fading into a desaturated viole. The pinstripes added a last touch of chic – and truth to be told, we couldn’t think of a better armour to enter the coming season in. More images below. Stay tuned for more favorites.
