Camouflage at Dries Van Noten

I am obsessed with Dries Van Noten's latest Menswear Collection! He takes an old classic (camouflage) and makes it so fresh! I love the juxtaposition of a print so tied to masculinity and strength being paired with more feminine materials like lace. The use of so many different fabrics really pushes the collection to a new level. I am especially in love with the nylon camo jackets (see look 3.)
 His mind must have been on defense because he also seems to have pulled from the protective gear of the fencer as inspiration (the white jacket in look 2). The knitwear is even reminiscent of chainmail. Amazing! I would wear this entire collection!
