Dries Van Noten Spring Summer 2011 Wishlist

Though Fall Winter collections are starting to be marked down to make way for Spring Summer new styles, the weather is still mighty cold in Europe and temperate regions. Hence, the warmth of winter gears are still in dire need, and stores are unlikely to stock up on new season offerings so soon. But thanks to online stores, Spring Summer 2011 merchandise are slowly trickling in for anxious customers to start stocking up!

I just received a press release from a UK online store, LN-CC whose selections from Martin Margiela to Raf Simons and Rick Owens have caught my eye. The simple layout of the website is a dear to browse thru. All the product pics are clear and well shot against a woody background that made the merchandise looked exceptionally appealing. (Not to mention the very cute male model!) Well done!

Out of all the brands, Dries Van Noten's Spring Summer 2011 collection for the online store is my favourite. Here's a few items I have now declared on my wishlist:

1) Nennos Short Sleeve Belted Cardigan @ £300

We have seen aplenty of long sleeve versions and they prove sometimes inappropriate for summer weather. So these short sleeve versions in Black and camel colour is the perfect solution for cardigan fans! Added with a smart detachable leather belt across the body, the cardigan can be adjusted to be more body hugging, while creating an interesting look to the garment.

2) Brown Leather Holdall @ £586

I love the vintage charm of this leather bag! Dries Van Noten always manages to capture a bit of nostalgia in his collections. Roomy and slouch, this bag will serve you well as an office carry all or gym bag. The tone on tone colour of the adjustable leather handles add depth to the colours, and can fit your fancies for shoulder or hand carry. I simply love it's simplicity and vintage appeal. This bag will aged extraordinary well.

3) Callan Checks Shirt @ £152

I love the fabrication of this lightweight and slightly translucent shirt. Subtly exuding sexiness while having gorgeous navy and green patterns. This 'airy' shirt is both smart and casual for summer shorts or tailor pants. If you like to dress modern dandy, this shirt is perfect!

4) Grosgrain Belt @ £134

Colours, colours, colours... no need for more explanation why I like this belt. Goes with summer shorts, enhancing any look with some striking hues. It somehow reminded me for the UK Union Jack flag too!

Thanks to LN-CC for the heads up! Another alternative to online shopping! Love these Dries Van Noten items:-)

That cardigan is pretty special

For some reason, I found it funny that they need to state 'real leather' behind the belt :)
