Dries Van Noten for Less


The Dries Van Noten Spring ’09 RTW collection was full of chunky silver, black, and gold necklaces and bracelets. If you happen to be a Dries Van Noten fan and an avid Forever 21 shopper, you may have already noticed the similarities between their “Disco Fun” and “Polished Globe” necklaces and the lovely necklaces from DVN. If you haven’t, I’m here to show them to you.

You can immediately tell the balls are plastic, and they’re disco balls. ┬áBut if you’re a big DVN fan and want to replicate the look for cheap, you may be able to pull it off in the dark, or from far away. Or maybe just try the next necklace…

64854889-01I like this one much better, the globes are in fact, polished, like the name suggests. They aren’t weird disco balls that remind me of some Mardi Gras beads. I think the black makes the silver pop more and this necklace doesn’t look as cheap and plasticy as the other one.


The first necklace is $7.80 and the second is $10.80. Now all you need is a headscarf, some great sunglasses, and something bright.
