Raf Simons / Dries Van Noten

By Mercedes

This week I was really inspired by the work of two of my favourite designers, Raf Simons and Dries Van Noten and so I did two quick sketches inspired by them. Simons silhouettes were surprisingly feminine but somehowyou don’t care so much about it when you see them, because they look fresh, young and new. I also I loved the concept:

“All the boys were natural tonight. There was nobody who did the hair for them. We showed them as they come so it was very much about the way of dressing, the way of choosing the clothes as a way to express yourself. It was not a camouflage in terms of how you can create yourself with hair or product or styling. You think about the collection and that is what is interesting right now. You can just take it or leave it but hopefully take it. “ Raf Simons for Dazed and Confused

Dries Van Noten‘s dare use of flower prints in a dark palette  “Seeing how far you can go with transparent shirts and dévoré and still be able to say, ‘Hey man, this is men’s clothes.'”*, and textures are so bold and elegant. Amazing!
