Get A Closer-Than-Front-Row View Of Dries Van Noten's Fall Show

Getting a front-row seat at Dries Van Noten is like being asked to the ball by Prince Charming — there are the dripping chandeliers, your glimmering fellow compatriots, and enough sartorial eye-candy on the runway that...well, you know how much we love Dries Van Noten, so any superlative we work in here probably pales in comparison to reality. What we will say is that this is a performance as well as a runway show, and no other space highlights the long-and-strong layers, sumptuous textures, and luxuriant prints quite like Paris' Hôtel de Ville. Forget the poofy ballgowns — pass us those Dries midi-dresses, please!
