The Dries Van Noten Spring 2014 menswear collection is a blend of Hawaiian flowers, fauna and surfing elements that equate to a colorful ensemble worthy of summer. The collection is casual, lightweight and loose-fitting, with slim-cut trousers that taper around the ankles.

All materials are covered in exquisite floral patterns; this includes pea coats, trench coats and shirts. Dries Van Noten pairs large floral patterns with smaller ones to create a dynamic summer look in notes of blue and absinthe yellow. The Van Noten men also wear outfits marked with the number nine, which is a high-end take on tracksuits. The collection moves toward the Oriental in its delicately embroidered floral kimonos and golden leafy motifs. The collection is stunning and such a refreshing look for men on the runway.
