1. Inspired by John Everett Millais’ Ophelia and Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Night Drea, the Dries Van Noten SS15 collection was a thing of pre-Rafaelite beauty.
2. Primal and untouched romanticism dominated the Rick Owens SS15 show.
3. For his Balenciaga SS15 collection, Alexander Wang stuck with geometric lines and tonal embroideries to merge that Parisian and New York aesthetic.
4. Listen to Jon Hopkins’s new version of “Form by Firelight”. Hopkins also announced a new EP, titled Asleep Versions.
5. How charming. Jacquemus-meets-Play-Doh. Eleanor Macnair recreated Play-Doh sculpture of some of the best looks from the SS15 collection.

A series of rooms showcase all the art, sculptures, videos, paintings and works of other designers that have influenced Van Noten’s 30-year repertoire. Among the works are Nick Cave’s “Bunny Boy” and Japanese artist Makoto Azuma’s digitally manipulated flora, making the exhibition a merger of art and fashion.
