Mens RTW Spring 2011: Dries Van Noten edition

It’s that time year! That glorious time when all the best and brightest of the couture mens designer worlds collide and provide us with runway eye candy, otherwise known as this year’s representation for Menswear Ready To Wear, Spring 2010.

First up, we have Distinguished Gentleman meets Elk Oak Lodge meets 1986 South Bronx with Dries Van Noten’s mixing and matching. 80’s acid washed denim jackets and jeans paired with handsome plaid blazers. Hunting style cardigans with suede and leather shoulder patches (for resting rifles on, of course) worn with classy trouser shorts. This collection definitely made me smile. I think I rather appreciate the Noten house’s sense of humor and exquisite tailoring.
