Dries Van Noten isn't the -est anything. Not the biggest name in fashion, the highest fashion, or the necessarily the "best" fashion, in that it isn't the most wearable fashion for all people across the board. But there was something really special about Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2013, because almost a year after its release to stores, we're still talking about it and I am definitely still thinking about it. These images are my top 15 looks from the season, and the ones I am hoping will still inspire my purchases and manner of dress for the coming year. Nothing captured my mind like this since Charlotte Ronson in 2011 (though when placed side by side, Char Ron ain't got nothing on Dries). The layering is impeccable and clever, the patterns are aggressive and aggressively mixed but don't clash, and can we please talk about that perfect pink lipstick?
