The Spring 2012 runway show for Dries Van Noten was a tremendous success in Paris as the designer showed a strong collection, headlined by utilization of waterproof fabrics. Standout colors from the palette included midnight blue and burgundy alongside some brighter colors as well. We’re sure all eyes are on the outerwear pieces as they really left a mark of their own.

We’re really digging the print’s in Yohji Yamamoto’s Spring 2012 collection as stripes and polka dots are pinned against florals and several other shapes to give the pieces some character and definition. There’s much to appreciate from Yohji’s collection this time around like patterned knits and Nehru-collared button-downs as well as the form-fitting outerwear, silk tops and traditionally-printed trousers.

With Paris Fashion Week fully underway, what better way to kick things off than by showing you Adam Kimmel‘s Fall 2011 presentation. Honestly, I don’t know where to start as this line really looks stunning and the styling is well done and will definitely shows the team’s creative spirit. The line has an outdoorsy appeal to it and drops a handful of wearable pieces like an olive peacoat and a well-cut suit made from warm fabrics.
