    Not to contradict Dries Van Noten's reputation as one of fashion's most cerebral designers, but his spring '13 offerings just look like a whole lot of pretty to us.

    Painterly floral tops, delicate, pastel-plaid dresses with sheer chiffon overlays, and ladylike, structured bags in yummy turquoise leather — these are surprisingly springy clothes from the designer better known for his darkly draped looks. Of course, Dries does a very smart kind of springy — but it's still way more accessible than his rep would have you believe.

    Click on for 12 beautifully understated Dries Van Noten looks — it's always the quiet ones who surprise you, ain't it?
