According to Dries Van Noten, he didn’t start out with the notion of creating a collection that drew inspiration from horse racing and the equestrian arts; that’s just where he ended up. “We were doing all these technical things — garment bonding and taping — to these light silks and satins and I started thinking about circumstances in which a man might find them appropriate to wear, which lead to the idea of jockey’s silks.”  That result was a collection that included skinny-legged trousers with an extra-narrow ankle, Color-blocked blousons with deep V-shapes angling in from shoulders to navel, and barley-colored tweed jackets with leather detailing.  ( Los Angeles Times by Adam Tschorn )
