Quick one: If you enjoyed my punditry on the Valentino Couture show on SHOWstudio last month, I’ll be repeating the act this week! Tune in to SHOWstudio tomorrow at 5pm GMT to watch the Dries van Noten AW18 show and hear me live in conversation with panel host Rosanna Falconer along with Mimma Viglezio, Caroline Burstein and Shonagh Marshall.
These panels are always super insightful as we don’t just talk about the show in question; the conversation usually veers off on several tangents relating to the fashion industry and Fashion Month (hello drones at Dolce & Gabbana…!). Tomorrow’s big question will be, ‘does Dries’s success defy convention?’
If you’re a DRG email subscriber (sign up here if you’re not!) and are reading this in my Wednesday digest, you might still have time to tune in. If not, I’ll add a link update here.
UPDATE: That was soooo good! Dries at his pattern- and texture-clashing best with an outsider-art bent and the usual confident exuberism. We did gush a little. Caroline Burstein’s insights were fantastic (Browns was the first UK stockist to buy from Dries van Noten) and Mimma Viglezio shared an interesting nugget about where the fines paid by copyists end up. Watch here to find out…
