SS 2008 Dries Van Noten Runway Top

Condition: Pristine
Price: € 225

The twin of this top was presented on the 2008 runway as seen on the beautiful Ali Stephens. The Spring/Summer 2008 Ready-To-Wear Collection was all about mixing color and prints. Dries Van Noten dealt out a kaleidoscope of painterly and fifties-derived florals and abstract leafy strokes in greens, blues, yellows, and saffrons. Deep bands of contrasting color turned up in the hems and yokes of dresses, classic scarf prints were transformed into silk pants, and little cuffed linen shorts came printed with tiny fifties flowers.
