In addition to the element-enduring characteristics of the Dries Van Noten 2012 Spring/Summer collection for men, it also features a wide range of futuristic styles and heavy layering. The male models tore down the runway in long coats and lustrous shorts worn atop equally lustrous trousers. While the palette of colors chosen for the line is rather subdued -- navy and burgundy -- the designer made sure to add some pop with orange, yellow and red hues.
Implications - Since the recent economic downturn, many consumers are seeking out products that offer both cutting-edge design and versatility. Products that offer both style and functionality will appeal to consumers looking to cut down on costs.
