Drawing slightly on skinhead fashion, the Dries Van Noten Menswear SS '11 collection also drew influence from '70s menswear, New York street culture and the overall French elegance. It wouldn't be a Dries collection without the mixing and matching of subcultural styles.

The hair was very Pee-wee Herman, but this time around, an attractive character (yes, it's possible). Check out the gallery to view the inspiring Dries Van Noten Menswear SS '11 collection.

Implications - No longer looking for over exaggerated styles, consumers are attracted to ones that are more subtle. Simpler designs appeal to those who want to maintain a more classic appearance. Companies could develop a greater number of these products in order to draw in more shoppers to their brand.
