Dries Van Noten SS16: Marilyn Monroe & Salvador Dali Are Immortalized in Fashion

Male models showcased garments with Marilyn Monroe’s gorgeous, pouting face and enviable figure printed onto silken suits, button-down shirts, roomy boxer shorts and capes. Dali made a few spontaneous appearances in the form of a lobster motif, with the crustacean embellished in ruby red sequins on a shirt or crawling across loosely-knitted sweaters. A sheer shirt with Marilyn “kissing” the male model’s chiseled torso was a stand-out piece and encapsulated the light, fun mood of the collection. The lavish fabrics combined with silhouettes that were loose and slouchy gave the runway a sort of liberating atmosphere and the effect was almost hypnotic. Just like the iconography of Marilyn herself.
