Inspired by the morbid love affair between the Marchesa Luisa Casati and poet Gabriele D’Annunzio, Dries Van Noten’s AW16 collection is an amalgamation of androgynous silhouettes, luxe fabrics and statement motifs. Offering a contemporary take on the classic shirt dress, the Druon boasts a fluid, longline silhouette and is punctuated with subtle pinstripes. Partner it with boyish brogues in the day before switching to a minimal heel post-six.
