The Dries Van Noten show was terrific. Colorful, fun, interesting, short, an antidote to a lot of what we've seen so far!

Patchwork-style colorblocks were all over the runway.

This is what they mean when they talk about "eye-popping" jots of color.

Brocade resulted in a fun, boho vibe.

At still other times, the designer went subtly groovy — more subtly than most of his peer group this season.

And when he did 70s, he did it well.
