The spring 2009 Dries shoes are beauts, and no mistake.
Love those slightly curving heels! Adore the Dries trademark combination of patterns and materials.
But, dare I say it? Does this look a little tame for this normally exuberant line? I mean, they’re gorgeous, no doubt, and a lot better than some of the things we’ve seen down the Parisian catwalks (just wait for the upcoming post about Givenchy), but when I think Dries, I think COLOR COLOR COLOR!! And this… well… this just didn’t have it.
Since there’s no Shoes of Project Runway post this week (long evening gowns make it damn near impossible to figure out what shoes those models have on), and in fact, since there will probably be no more Shoes of Project Runway posts for season 5 (since we’re off to Bryant Park next), I will sum up my feelings to this Dries Van Noten collection with a typical Nina Garcia response.
Dries, I just wish we could have seen more from you.
