INSPIRATION 'TIBET STYLE' 2006... Dries van Noten FW 2011//12

A beautiful picture from the book 'Tibet Style' by Hippolyte Romain published in 2006 [left] shows a traditional lamb fur coat with an interesting one-side lapel. The same idea runs in the entire Dries van Noten collection for FW 2011//12 [right] with many one-side lapels in different fur and color versions. Probably this will be a big trend for next winter since seen also in other collections, like Céline for example.
