PARIS - The models are getting primped backstage at the Dries Van Noten show where eye shadow comes in different bright colors like pink and orange. Magda Laguinge, the model opening the Fall/Winter 2012-2013 show at Paris Fashion Week, stops to say a brief hello to FashionTV before she's whisked away for rehearsal. Swedish model Sarah Blomqvist also stops to talk to FashionTV, calling Dries Van Noten her favorite show. "My favorite shows are in Paris," she adds. Model Vasilisa Pavlova says she loves Dries because, "It's always something with bright colors."
Makeup Artist Peter Philips describes the hair look. "For Dries Van Noten, we're doing a very simple look. One graphic element, it's color blocking on the eyes. It's something that matched nicely with all the prints and the concept of the whole collection," he says. Dries played with prints and existing garments printed on fabrics. "It's kind of complex and we wanted to do one element which comes back in the whole collection." Variations were made based on the skin color of the girl. No lipstick, no mascara, and just a curl on the lashes.
"I really wanted to do another take ethnic but in a very conceptual way, a very graphic way," Designer Dries Van Noten tells FashionTV. They took Chinese costumes, Japanese kimonos, and Korean garments and printed them digitally on fabric to create new contemporary pieces with Oriental-inspired prints. This creates an effect that is unexpected, he says. To balance that he added a lot of menswear, oversize, sports and military shapes.
