Dries Van Noten is fashion’s mix master, combining prints in compelling, unexpected ways—catnip for the style set. For Fall 2014, he took it to the next level with a trippy fashion parade of op-art swirls, distorted bulls-eyes and 3-D tropical florals. The surprise? How wearable it all is.


 Those pants! That coat. If you were to invest in that coat, you’d need to practice shrugging it off with just the right amount of boredom and insouciance.


Canadian supe Meghan Collison in a ’70s-style dress (MAJOR trend for fall). Doesn’t she look like she’s en route to the chicest key party ever?


Van Noten is also known for his sophisticated layering and proportion play, seen here on model Julia Nobis. Wouldn’t this be a perfect Oscars night look for Diane Keaton?


Total dancing queen. Also—two-tone ankle strap heels? Sign me up.

OVER TO YOU! If you could sit front-row at any fashion show, which would it be?
