Recent work | Paris Fashion Week Men’s AW20 | Dries Van Noten

“Illustrator Megan St Clair scoured through the autumn/winter 2020 menswear collections during Paris Fashion Week Men’s, and did what she does best—dissecting her favourite looks through colours, silhouettes and interesting details.

Read her brief reviews of the shows and scroll through the illustrations in the gallery above to get a first-hand recap of some of Paris Fashion Week Men’s autumn/winter 2020 season’s promising showings.”

Dries has a thing for concrete spaces. From one site to another, his consistent choice to show in a work-in-progress raw space each season, gives breathing room for his colour compositions. Although, at first look, I worried he’d taken a somewhat surprising turn to using real fur, draping a fox stole over a checked bomber and lucid yellow silk shirt ; later, I was told that all the fur in the collection were in fact faux. But thankfully, it did not distract from Dries’ ever compelling colours, textures and detail-led designs. From ’70s ruffled shirts, and studded belts cinching high-waist trousers and oversized blazers, to his wonderful prints which sprawled across hard-shoulder shirts and oversized knits—styled one collar corner in, the other out—it was definitely a favourite of the season for me.
