Jet Set Men’s Fall 2019

For Michael Michalsky, becoming creative director of Jet Set was like coming full circle. As a teenager growing up near the German city of Hamburg, he would take the train into town on Saturdays to window shop at the luxury sportswear brand’s store.
Eventually, he managed to buy one of its jackets on sale. That orange bomber jacket from 1984 has been reissued as part of Michalsky’s first collection for the St. Moritz-based label, which celebrates its 50th anniversary with a series of drops celebrating archival designs from its Eighties heyday.
“Jet Set during that time was in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy the non plus ultra luxury sportswear brand, basically. If I look back on it now, they created a segment that now every luxury brand really wants to get into,” he said.
“Ever since then I had a love affair with the brand, because I have always been very fascinated and very smitten by sportswear,” he added.
Jet Set couldn’t have dreamed of a better advocate for its revival. With a passionate eye for detail, Michalsky pointed out the technical details – many borrowed from U.S. military garb – on ripstop bomber jackets, heavyweight cotton T-shirts and performance ski suits.
Each drop will be

Cerruti 1881 Men’s Fall 2019

Jason Basmajian stuck to urban territory for fall, familiar landscape for the label as he continues to fashion it as a modern and upscale option. He uses the term “elevated sportswear.”
“The cross-pollination between sportswear and tailoring has always been a very natural DNA to the house — I think we keep refining and detailing it down,” he said, speaking backstage before the show.
Down the runway, he sent a handsome, belted suit jacket in pinstripes, fetched from the archives and refined for a contemporary audience. In a sign he’s reaching to meet a lasting fixation with outerwear, the options multiplied as the show advanced: trenches, an exquisitely tailored windbreaker, a structured puffer coat for women and the finest leather jackets — one eye-catching bomber had a gathered leather waist and panels of silky fabric. Accessories held their ground, expanding even, to include a tablet case and a camera bag.
“It’s quite deceptively simple in a lot of ways,” Basmajian said, noting the workmanship and choice of fabrics behind the lineup, which in addition to the puffer offered more pieces for women.
Sabina Sciubba of the electronic dance group Brazilian Girls animated the show with a performance, singing in three languages.

Sean Suen Men’s Fall 2019

Sean Suen had a powerful storyline for fall, but the clothes also stood strong on their own.
He named the collection Ghost Town, after his childhood home of Fengdu in China, now covered by the waters of the Three Gorges Dam. The town still exists in his mind, which he continues to explore as a memory. To symbolize its gradual disappearance, Suen offered fraying edges and a fading gray color scheme on a simple, felted trouser and sweater set. For the move to higher ground, the model was equipped with an oversize, chunky knit bag in a silvery gray, slung over one shoulder, stretching down to skim the ankle.
In contrast was knitwear from childhood photographs, wavy stripes drawn on a collared sweater, in a hot-cold color palette of orange, mustard, gray and black.
Suen operates in elegant territory as reflected in this lineup, which proves especially relevant as men’s fashion edges upward. Sleek suits carried an element of deconstruction, a house signature, with a broad panel that cut across the chest diagonally, like a stiff blanket skewed to the side, but carrying certain elements of the jacket, like a breast pocket. One panel in black, quilted velvet jutted out further than usual,

Y’s Pre-Fall 2019

For the design studio at Y’s — both of the brand’s lines, “Black” and “Pink,” are created by Yohji Yamamoto’s team — pre-collections are seen as laboratories where the designers can try out style innovations before they hit the main line. Some of them are bold (for pre-fall 2019, one of the main themes is Indian embroidery) while others are more subtle, like the introduction of a new hue (a soft royal blue) to the restrained color palette.
Ornate black embroideries of hands and eyes, representing two of the human senses, decorate both cotton shirts and wool separates of the Black line, snaking up a coat back or sitting above a jacket pocket. They were crafted by the Shanagar factory, based in Mumbai, India, known for its collaborations with Alaïa, Chloé, Lanvin and Yamamoto himself, and add a mystical touch to the pared-back Y’s silhouette.
Denim pieces are printed patchwork-style to imitate “boro,” a technique used at the end of the 19th century in Japan: instead of buying costly new clothes, pieces of cloth were sewn together thanks to the “sachiko” method, pinning the bits of fabric together. The grey patchwork print lends an ancestral look to a knee-length coat with red

Victoria Beckham Pre-Fall 2019

Victoria Beckham has an acute knowledge of what she and, in turn, her customers want to wear.
She has developed a power-dressing formula of her own that revolves around elegant tailoring, cozy knits and feminine yet easy-to-throw-on midi dresses — and she keeps returning to it, as it clearly seems to appeal to her growing customer base of women who subscribe to her brand of modern femininity and are on the lookout for glamorous yet no-fuss clothing.
For pre-fall, she kept her focus sharp and stayed true to brand signatures from elegant skinny trousers, to asymmetric knit dresses and flowing midi’s.
Some highlights included a pair of khaki slim trousers with the brand’s signature slits placed on the sides; a tweed suit that is already on high demand after Beckham wore it to attend her husband’s Kent & Curwen presentation during the London men’s shows; tailored corduroy trousers and colorblock tops. There were also dainty slip tops or camisole dresses galore — Beckham said customers loved the lingerie inspiration the brand debuted on the runway last season, so she listened and is giving them more.
Always a careful listener to her client’s needs, Beckham also wanted to cater to women’s soft spot for animal prints

Alberta Ferretti Pre-Fall 2019

“As a designer, my goal is to bring fashion to the street, not the street into fashion,” said Alberta Ferretti, distancing herself from the industry’s current obsession for streetwear. “I designed a collection which is multifaceted as the women of today, who look for clothes exalting their beauty and at the same fitting the needs of their dynamic lifestyle.”
In keeping with her intentions, Ferretti presented a lineup that mixed the right dose of daywear with her signature romantic evening styles. More quotidian options included, for example, a beautiful trenchcoat with cape-like details worn with a quilted jacket and a cozy sweater tucked into slightly high-waisted carrot pants punctuated by zippers. Impeccable blazers were worn with flared trousers and crochet tops and a cashmere cape trimmed with leather, exuding a chic equestrian feel, was paired with a cable-knit mini dress.
Veering toward more evening situations, a short silk cocktail dress was enriched with a cascade of ruffles in a delicate combination of pink and gray tones, geometric metallic embellishments gave a sparkling feel to mini frocks, while a sensual black satin slipdress was decorated with metallic rings for an eye-catching, slightly Nineties effect.

Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2019

Louis Vuitton has tapped an all-star cast for its pre-fall look book, cementing a growing trend for pre-collections — traditionally viewed as commercial filler between runway shows — to act as major communications platforms for luxury brands.
Having staged a celebrity-laden cruise show in the South of France in May, creative director Nicolas Ghesquière showcased his pre-fall looks on 17 personalities covering a broad generational swathe, with stars recruited from highbrow Oscar-winning movies and hit TV shows.
“These women embrace the various personalities that embody fashion at Louis Vuitton. Be they stars or new faces, all of them share the same willpower and confidence in their choices, and at the same time, reflect the eclecticism of the female identity,” he said in a statement.
Among his most surprising choices is transgender actress Indya Moore, one of the breakout stars of Ryan Murphy’s acclaimed series “Pose,” which was nominated for best television series in the drama category at the recent Golden Globes.
Gender ambiguity has played a growing role in Ghesquière’s aesthetic lately — the designer’s spring 2019 runway featured transgender and androgynous models Krow and Jessica “Jay” Espinosa, among others.
Moore joins friends of the brand such as Jennifer Connelly, Michelle Williams, Léa Seydoux, Alicia

Kiton Men’s Fall 2019

“Respect” was one of the words spelled out on the walls of the Kiton showroom in Milan. “We must not forget where we come from,” said chief executive officer Antonio De Matteis. “I think too many are losing their way.”
To avoid that trap, Kiton’s core customer remains central to the brand and he is a global traveler—whether for business or pleasure. And that man needs a light, deconstructed suit that can be pulled out of a suitcase without any fuss. “Formal wear becomes smart casual clothing,” said De Matteis. One that comes with price tags that can reach between 30,000 and 50,000 euros in the case of soft vicuña jackets.
Exclusive fabrics continued to add new touches to Kiton’s staple Prince of Wales or houndstooth jackets. Four-ply cashmere jackets and hoodie shirts stood out, flanked by military styles similar to parkas with fur collars or reversible quilted jackets and a cashmere coat lined in weasel, nutria or mink combined with a double face garment with an extractable fleece lining.
Mariano and Walter De Matteis, the twin brothers and sons of the ceo, presented the third collection of their KNT line, which employs the same premium fabrics as Kiton but with a sportier

Maggie Marilyn Pre-Fall 2019

“I guess two, two and a half years in it’s like, ‘What’s next?’ We manufacture in New Zealand, have a transparent supply chain, always are looking at fabric innovations…but as a brand, how do we progress and grow that still feels sustainable? Because it feels a little bit weird to say, ‘Ah, we’re sustainable,’ but we’re growing and putting more product into the world,” Maggie Marilyn contemplated. But for 2019, the sustainability maven is expanding her efforts even further.
For her latest collection, made up of high summer and pre-fall counterparts, Marilyn’s process comes not from one big overarching concept, but from sustainability, as well. “Looking at each individual garment and thinking, ‘How can we improve this in every way for the customer and for the people that make it?’” she mused. Even her fresh color palette was derived from her mom’s garden, where growing up she was taught how to grow beautiful things without the use of harmful pesticides and insecticides and later, subconsciously lead to her current state as a designer. The lineup held a more simplified ease than prior seasons — knotting details in place of overtly feminine ruffles and colorblocking in place of stripes. Dresses and skirts

No. 21 Pre-Fall 2019

Mannish references and a winter maritime inspiration coexisted with Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s signature sensual femininity in the No. 21 pre-fall collection. The first theme resulted in cozy outerwear in striped patterns with a Nordic naval feel, as well as in knits decorated with anchor-shaped intarsia. Tiny anchors also appeared on the buttons punctuating a minidress with fluid long sleeves, as well as on a pair of glossy pants matched with a striped T-shirt. Coated inserts embellished the sleek peacoats, while shearling was used inside-out for cozy outerwear. Moving toward the more feminine, Dell’Acqua introduced leopard prints and silicon fringes on coats, frocks and pencil skirts, while a lingerie-inspired flair informed see-through tulle dresses and silk camisoles enriched with lace details.

An energetic vibe ran through the Emilio Pucci collection. Easy-chic, uncomplicated silhouettes were combined with the house’s signature bold prints, as well as joyful colors and tactile finishings.
Plissé dresses and skirts, showing the new Pucci logo, featured intriguing dégradé effects amplified by the irregular stripes of fitted knit tops and the iridescent accents of silk blouses. The multicolor graphic prints were embroidered with metallic sequins on the sparkling asymmetric evening frocks, while viscose pin-striped tailored suits were infused with an elegant attitude.
A-lined colorful vinyl skirts were paired with lightweight silk blouses in fluid silhouettes and plissé skirts in solid tones were embellished with asymmetric foulard inserts splashed with graphic patterns, adding a joyful feel to the clean designs.

Danshan Men’s Fall 2019

The creative duo known as Dan and Shan staged their intimate presentation in a shallow pool of water. Scrunched up satin arms trailed from the backs of shirts and extended from trouser legs. They were dragged through the water, and then wrung out from time to time.
Much like the shallow pool, the clothes were fluid, loose and relaxed. There were satin shirts in light steel or pale blue with oversize collars. Silk scarves came looped around the waist or tied at the neck.
As with seasons past, the designers continued to explore notions of gender-blending by playing with silhouettes. Trousers were cinched high on the waist. Some were flared while others were straight-leg. Tops were cut asymmetrically.
This season, they also played with textures: a green crinkled overcoat with buttons running down the back was a standout.

Golden Globes 2019: Bradley Cooper, Idris Elba, and the Most Stylish Guys at the 76th Awards Show

The stars came out for the 76th annual Golden Globes ceremony last night at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, and all eyes were on the red carpet to see who pulled off the best looks. And they didn’t disappoint: Celebs turned out with classic outfits, daring ensembles, and yes, even a few questionable sartorial choices. Below, we’ve rounded up a few of the best dressed men from the 2019 red carpet. Looking to amp up your style game this year? Take some cues from these guys.


10 Basic Fashion Rules Every Guy Should Know

 

John Krasinski

Supporting his wife Emily Blunt for her best actress in a musical or comedy nomination, Krasinski stood out in a sea of black suits with his dark navy ensemble. His Christian Louboutin shoes and matching black bow tie (sometimes black and navy do go together) added elegance to his red carpet style. If you’re getting tired of trotting out your same old black suit, take a tip from Krasinski and opt for navy blue instead.

 

Bradley Cooper

It seems like Bradley Cooper can do anything—write, direct, act, and even pull off an all-white suit. Looking like the complete opposite of the rough-around-the edges musician he played in A Star is Born, the clean-shaven nominee stood out on the red carpet. If you’re considering a similar outfit, take note: His black shoes and bow tie keep him from looking like a polar bear.

 

Chadwick Boseman

The Black Panther himself rocked a custom patterned silver tux designed by Versace. His stylist Ashley Weston described the look as “a work of art”—and we agree.

 

Idris Elba

Idris Elba arrived on the Golden Globes carpet in a patterned turquoise suit with shoes to match. Although he walked the carpet with his jacket unbuttoned and no tie in sight, the rumored next James Bond tidied up his look once he stepped onstage to present an award.

Although he’ll always be the King in The North in our hearts, Richard Madden took home the Golden Globe for best actor in a TV drama for his performance in Bodyguard. He strode down the red carpet in a classy black velvet suit—a great example of how to use different materials, rather than colors, to stand out from the crowd.

Walking the red carpet with his Black Panther co-stars in tow, Michael B. Jordan showed how to use accessories to update a classic look for the modern era: He rocked a black double-breasted Burberry tuxedo, and his diamond-studded lapel pin and Piaget watch made the perfect complements to his jacket. The on-screen villain definitely looked like one of the good guys at last night’s award show.

 

Christian Bale

Christian Bale’s various body transformations throughout the years may have been surprising, but fans were also shocked to hear his Welsh accent onstage at the Golden Globes (where he thanked Satan for inspiring his performance as Dick Cheney). On the red carpet, the Vice star proved that a little color coordination goes a long way—his sleek all-black suit and tie combo worked perfectly with his wife’s black dress.

Astrid Andersen Men’s Fall 2019

Andersen brought a Copenhagen chill to her collection, which unfolded in the vast outdoor courtyard of Broadgate Plaza, near Liverpool Street station. She certainly came prepared, placing little disposable glove warmers on each chair for guests, and sending out a lineup of cozy knits and plump fur coats — in addition to lots of pinstripes and hand-painted prints.
The designer said she wanted to fuse the idea of streetwear with classical tailoring and luxury fur, as the lines between catwalk and street have blurred beyond recognition.
She worked charcoal pinstripe fabric into karate-style suits, puffers and tracksuit bottoms sealed with reflective tape. Her long, swooshing pinstripe topcoats had a gangster-ish feel to them. That pairing of formal and sporty worked beautifully, although it remains to be seen what bank, law firm or judge will let those outfits through the door.
Andersen worked lots of color into the collection, too, via freeform, hand-painted prints on shirts and hoodies and a terrific lineup of knitwear, including cable-knit leggings for a cold January night, and boxy color-blocked sweaters in rich combinations including corn and mint green.
Color also came in the form of fat, luscious fur coats. They were long and silvery, hip-length and baby blue, or short

John Lawrence Sullivan Men’s Fall 2019

In a dark tunnel in East London, designer Arashi Yanagawa brought punk and gothic rock alive again.
As the underground band Wild Daughter performed center stage, Yanagawa delivered a collection that let him revel in his ongoing obsession with music and subculture, filled with Nineties-inspired punk and rock references.
There was animal print and leather galore: Slim snakeskin pants were layered under a leopard-print tunic; trench coats came in glossy taupe or black leather; classic tailored suits were paired with corsets or see-through mesh tops, and leather jackets featured metal fringing.
Elsewhere, Yanagawa piled on the patterns and texture, layering snake and leopard-print separates with check coats or mixing matte and glossy leathers.
The rock star references and wet-hair, dishevelled look of the models had a whiff of Hedi Slimane and felt a little too nostalgic of a time long gone.
But Yanagawa’s expert tailoring, as in a range of roomy, big-shouldered coats in heritage fabrics, added a more contemporary spin — and showed that he has the potential to take his designs in new, more current directions.

Philipp Plein Pre-Fall 2019

While maintaining his aesthetic bold and flamboyant, Philipp Plein introduced more quotidian options for pre-fall.
A macro houndstooth pattern reflected the sartorial inspiration of power coats, wrap skirts and sheath dresses all embellished with leather details, while denim parkas matched with coordinated pants were richly lined with fluffy fur.
Jeans were also embellished with a cascade of crystals and studs, revealing the collection’s punkish inspiration, also echoing in the leather garments punctuated by metallic embellishments. A tribute to Eighties hard rock music bands, a pattern mixing flames and roses combined with the brand’s logo was splashed on silk separates and structured outerwear styles for the most audacious Philipp Plein’s fans.

London Fashion Week Men’s Fall 2019: What to See, Eat and Where to Shop

LONDON — The first weekend in January is never an easy one, but London has the antidote, with a lineup of streetwear and luxury stores and restaurants serving everything from classic British to Taiwanese food, all of which will be open during London Fashion Week Men’s.

London store End. 
Peter Cook

END OF THE LINE: British property group Shaftesbury has expanded its retail portfolio, opening the first London outpost for the online men’s wear store, End. Occupying 9,000 square feet on the corner of Broadwick and Marshall Streets, the two-story glass-fronted space offers a range of collections from labels including Off-White, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Nike and Adidas Consortiums. The store, which already has units in Newcastle, England, and Glasgow, Scotland, features modern furnishings such as marble staircases and glass showcases.
End is part of a strategy by Shaftesbury to position Soho as a go-to destination for emerging brands. The company has been offering reasonable rents in the neighborhood, which is a few minutes’ walk from Oxford and Regent Streets. Shaftesbury has also helped to install Supreme, Palace, Carhartt and Dukes Cupboard, a multibrand retailer, in the neighborhood. Samantha Bain-Mollison, head of retail at Shaftesbury, has been driving the strategy. She describes End as “influential, with a renowned selection of directional and globally sourced men’s wear.” — Hannah Connolly

Tibi Pre-Fall 2019

News first: Tibi has officially launched men’s. Ssense picked up the smattering of men’s looks that appeared on Amy Smilovic’s spring runway and will be incubating the collection for at least a yearlong exclusive. “We didn’t really know we were tapping into something new in the market,” Smilovic said during a pre-fall preview. “Ssense really believes there’s a whole area missing for soft tailoring. Men’s doesn’t really have any young designer correlation. There’s nothing for a guy who’s like, ‘I want to pay a little more than contemporary and a lot less than designer and I don’t want to be street.’”
In terms of the pre-fall lineup at large, Smilovic focused on lightening things up in terms of attitude, a sense of humor. “We never do a theme, per se, but we were feeling the need to shake things up a bit, keeping on the track of updating classics, and a little bit of not taking yourself so seriously felt right,” she said. “We love suiting and a real urban palette, but we wanted to infuse it with a nature vibe.” Nothing was funny-ha-ha, but there were moments of cheekiness, for example, an oversize women’s suit cinched with a supersized, Eighties-inspired belt

Fendi Pre-Fall 2019

In keeping with the mood of its spring 2019 women’s runway show, Fendi showcased a pre-fall collection centered on elegant, real clothes for modern and dynamic women.
Creative director Karl Lagerfeld took inspiration from 19th-century French gates for the chic graphic patterns that peppered a range of pieces, spanning from asymmetric plissé dresses to urban bombers with mink fur collars. Reflecting the utilitarian attitude of the spring collection, the runway show’s maxi pockets returned here on the outerwear pieces, including a lightweight laser cut mink fur coat showing color-blocked fur intarsia. Inspired by traditional workwear, slightly oversize shirt jackets with front pockets were matched with wide-leg coordinated cuffed pants, while sartorial influences resonated in the masterfully crafted blazers showing asymmetric lapels. Their sophisticated rigor was softened by the feminine and lively attitude of the silk dresses punctuated with lace details and printed in charming motifs echoing the patterns of vintage men’s kimonos.
The collection’s balance between soft and sharp, as well as decorative and functional, also defined the bag lineup, where Silvia Venturini Fendi delivered new versions of the brand’s iconic Baguette style, along with introducing the practical and essential Ken B shoulder design enriched with a bold metallic chain.

Roksanda Pre-Fall 2019

Looking to artist Rana Begum’s geometric patterns, optical tricks and fluorescent color palette, Roksanda Ilincic worked up a collection with a sporty-couture feel and a mix of smooth surfaces and rough edges. Highlights included taffeta gowns with pouf sleeves, fabric flower appliqués with frayed edges, and black scribble embroidery.

Other dresses — long and short — were adorned with cutout organza panels and more of those naif embroidered scribbles and looked as if they were designed by freewheeling art students. Another dress had a dramatic cape at the back and was covered with blurry, colored panels. For day, there were pleats and tucks galore on dresses made from long strips of mismatched, patterned fabric, or from lightweight cotton silk gazar in flouro pink or orange.

A pair of cream linen silk trousers came with color-blocked pastel racing stripes down the side, while a tailored jacket was an elegant patchwork of energy drink green and powdery blue. While many of the silhouettes in this upbeat collection were breezy, bright and dreamy, but there was a strictness to this collection, too, in the form of a pea green wool boucle coat and long matching skirt, and a sturdy cream

Max Mara Pre-Fall 2019

“Nureyev: All the World His Stage,” the documentary by Jacqui and David Morris released earlier this year, majorly influenced the Max Mara pre-fall collection.
In particular, during a walk-through at the company’s showroom, creative director Ian Griffiths said he focused on the backstage moments and rehearsals when Rudolf Nureyev and his beloved dance partner Margot Fonteyn were captured wearing their training outfits, including T-shirts with rolled-up sleeves and knots at the waist, ribbed knitted leggings and cache-coeurs.
The inspiration actually translated in the fluidity and dynamic sense of movement infused into the elegant collection. Ballet’s iconic tones echoed in the chic color palette, mainly focused on neutral shades with pink touches, as well as more vibrant red accents and graphic blacks.
Griffiths showed a soft hand in the development of the cozy coats layered over flowing pants and draped lightweight tops, as well as chiffon panel dresses injected with an ethereal femininity. This was balanced by the tailoring appeal of the cashmere and reverse satin suits, as well as by the bold silhouette of a covetable trenchcoat worn over a fine cable knit sweater, while Max Mara’s iconic 101801 camel coat was presented with an impalpable organza shell — a symbol of the

Sportmax Pre-Fall 2019

The purist and innovative architecture of Le Corbusier inspired the graphic appeal and the striking contrasts of the Sportmax pre-fall lineup.
The brand’s signature urban aesthetic was updated this season with a versatile approach resulting in the detachable details of a range of pieces, including leather coats and trenches, which can be transformed because of the functional zippers.
Graphic striped motifs contributed to the sartorial appeal of the sartorial outerwear and to the purity of the fitted midi dresses showing college-inspired polo collars.
The world of sport remained at the core of the label with multicolor bands embellishing the intarsia leather bombers and neoprene giving a soft touch to a zippered hoodie with the ergonomic cuts highlighted by the use of Lycra. An eye-catching starred print splashed on a silk pleated dress introduced a flamboyant touch breaking the lineup’s overall rigor.

Johanna Ortiz Pre-Fall 2019

“When you’re expecting something to receive in June or the end of May, you want to wear it immediately. You don’t want to wait two or three months to wear it,” Colombia-based Johanna Ortiz explained over the phone of the direction for her first pre-fall collection. The designer has been masterfully designing feminine frocks over the years and took to her first pre-fall collection to build out her daywear offerings — with an emphasis on easy summery shirts, skirts and dresses that could  transition into fall. A plaid suit, peach-colored eyelet blouse (one of Ortiz’ favorites) or button-downs with Western-inspired piping paired with a lightweight, leather skirt were among the highlights. While less ornate or frilly than her gowns or swimwear, they held the same feminine allure with versatile wearability.
Her expanded swimwear was great. Ditto to her gowns and flirty dresses, offered short for the first time this season. Both came in a varying jaguar prints — Ortiz’s first dip into using animal prints — best seen on a wonderful spotted dress with ribbon-ties at the shoulder and waist with matching Tabitha Simmons collaboration sandals or a ruffled one-shoulder navy maillot with the animal walking through Colombian coffee plants.

Natasha Zinko Pre-Fall 2019

Natasha Zinko offered her take on two very hot topics for pre-fall: Sustainability and gender-neutral clothing.
She had quietly began experimenting in both arenas with her catwalk show in September, where she unveiled a small men’s wear range, but with her new pre-fall collection she was ready to make a bolder, more confident statement and come into her own.
The men’s wear line — which Zinko codesigns with her 11-year-old son Ivan — is already growing and so are the crossovers with the women’s range.
Everything from the brand’s signature tracksuits, to tailoring and oversize outerwear became interchangeable.
“I’m always taking my husband’s clothes and he takes mine. No one cares anymore, especially when it comes to streetwear,” said Zinko, pointing to a women’s bandana-printed tracksuit she ended up styling on a male model, matching men’s and women’s check shirts and roomy blazers referencing the suits worn by the Duke of Windsor and high-waisted jeans, which were photographed together in a bid to create a contemporary take on “Thelma & Louise.”
Zinko also wanted to take a stance against the much-talked-about issue of waste, which gave the brand a revitalized sense of purpose.

Emilia Wickstead Pre-Fall 2019

Emilia Wickstead wanted to tell a story of whimsy and empowerment with her latest pre-fall range.
Continuing the feminist narrative she started on the catwalk last spring, she turned to Fleur Cowles, the American artist and editor of Fifties magazine Flair, for inspiration: She was drawn to the way the famous editor worked hard to make a fortune in a man’s world, yet kept her “fun-loving and vivacious attitude” alive.
It was easy for Wickstead, whose vision of an empowered woman is one who keeps her femininity — and flair for romantic floral dresses — intact, to bring Cowles’ colorful spirit into her world.
She created a charming rose print — Cowles’ favorite flower — that featured on bright orange trenches and an array of midi dresses.
She also channeled the riot of pattern and color from Flair magazine’s interiors pages with a bright orange polka-dot print. It came in a pleated crepe midi dress for day and a more delicate, tulle version for the evening.
Elsewhere, Wickstead updated signature silhouettes such as her wool-crepe, structured midi dresses with pastel hues, small geometrical cutouts and Fifties-inspired necklines. She continued to add more separates to her range, too, with elegant pussy-bow blouses, a canary yellow two-piece

Ji Oh RTW Fall 2019

Gender ambiguity in fashion has been a hot button issue this year, with many retailers and brands embracing a fluid approach to dress. Designer Ji Oh knows it, and has a design ethos rooted in subverting classic men’s wear for women that boasts broad appeal.
The big news from her fall range was a distinct focus on recontextualizing classics to draw in more male consumers. It’s a wonder why she hasn’t introduced the idea of “unisex” clothing into her collections before. She used the term loosely as trousers, like a quirky pair of “blazer pants” or another with pleating on just one side, are fit differently for guys and gals.
She shot her look book on both male and female models — twice in the same outfits — to show an inherent neutrality. Off-beat shirting looked just as cool on him as on her, as did striped trousers; the pleated skorts cut one leg higher than the other, though sharp and clean, were definitely geared for more eccentric fashion enthusiasts.
There were a lot of pieces here that demonstrated experimental restraint. The aforementioned shirting, for instance, were easy to wear even with asymmetric construction or manipulated fabric gatherings along the chest. Speaking of,

Raquel Allegra Pre-Fall 2019

Like many designers, Raquel Allegra looked back to the Nineties for inspiration this season, specifically her high school years in which one of her favorite pieces of clothing was a DKNY T-shirt borrowed from a boyfriend. Incorporating the oversize initials “RALA” into one of her slouchy, fine-gauge knit Ts was one of her bolder nods to the decade.
The others came in more subtle fashion: the hero piece, a camouflage tie-dyed mesh anorak; a subtle gradient grey washed silk blouse; or a navy button-front, midcalf-length skirt.
Each season, Allegra finds new ways to manipulate her signature tie-dyed silks and cottons, while copiously layering in new fabrications and updated silhouettes. This season, it was the olive, brown and navy tie-dye masquerading as camouflage that was her starting point, as the earth tones grounded her collection.
Around these mesh and woven pieces, she added layers for underneath such as a Nineties throwback ribbed tank dress, and on top, a quilted cotton olive trench or a sleeveless coppery satin duster. Allegra also offered more luxury-casual looks such as a washed silk blouse and cotton jersey pant work together as a tie-dyed lavender and marigold matching set.

Warm RTW Pre-Fall 2019

“In summer, everyone’s tan. Everyone feels thinner even if they’re not…maybe it’s just the tan…but for me, I make happy clothes and clothes that try to make you feel happy and like you’re on vacation while grinding it out in the city,” Warm designer Winnie Beattie mused. The designer used knowledge from her own store, customer requests of buy-now warm-weather pieces, combined with requests from her buyers for transitional pieces that can still sit on the floor come early fall, as well. Envisioning those warm summer nights, Beattie designed a lovely collection to appease both.
There were easy printed voile dresses — floral mumus, geode minis — or washed silk jumpsuits with pussy bows and rompers fit for Beattie’s clambake nights in Amagansett, N.Y., that also stayed true to her unwavering versatility. Throw on one of her washed macro-floral printed silk or striped cotton dresses with a pair of Manolos for a summer wedding or dirty Chucks for running around, either worked wonderfully. Plaid “rainbow” cover-ups — a matching surf poncho and trouser — took the place of summer sweaters (because sweaters in the summer is “like admitting it’s cold, which is a horrible, sad thing,” Beattie quipped) made a stellar addition to the

Moon Choi Pre-Fall 2019

“I started from cuddling people,” designer Moon Choi unexpectedly remarked. “I want to make clothing that comforts one’s life because clothing is the one thing that touches the skin first.” Choi embraced her first pre-fall collection quite literally, with modernly tweaked tailored garments that very subtly mimicked the gestures of cuddling. One of the key pieces included an overlapped double-breasted jacket with sashes that could be criss-crossed and buttoned on opposite sides, offered both long and short. “Like someone is holding you,” Choi explained. Blazers and trousers were given detachable fabric sashes that could be buttoned inside or outside a row of buttons on the garments to distort their shape as if the wearer’s clothing was being bunched during a hug.
As always, Choi’s garments were designed to be defined not by gender, but by size and after last season’s introduction of lighter materials and dresses, Choi returned to her roots with a fall-based, tailored lineup with eccentric touches that lean more refined than kitschy. “Tailoring is center to design methodology because I think it’s very attractive. It has very limited silhouettes, but in this silhouette, I can make a balance between my skills and my creativities,” she stated. The rest

Chalayan Pre-Fall 2019

Hussein Chalayan’s collection was filled with beautifully constructed clothes that would fit into any luxury wardrobe: There were asymmetric, lightly draped dresses in striped jersey or dogtooth fabrics; roomy trousers with side pleats or appliquéd panels lightly hanging on the sides; separates in a colorful forest print painted in a Chinese style, and skirts made voluminous with deep, contrasting pleats.
Apart from being a master at draping and creating unique constructions, Chalayan is also curious — and a deep thinker. This season he let his imagination run loose, unpicking the concept of pretending. Every drape, pleat and layer in the new range was informed by his philosophical interpretation of what it means to try to be someone else.
Turning the idea on its head, Chalayan bypassed all the negativity and instead focused on pretending as a catalyst to the imagination or “a medium that can healthily lift us away from our reality, adding richness to the monotony of our lives.” He also broke down the word pre-tension, discovering another alternative meaning of “applying tension to an object before use, to make it stronger.”
Chalayan managed to turn all of that abstraction into reality with clothes inspired by activities that can take the human body away from its

Camilla and Marc Pre-Fall 2019

Siblings Camilla Freeman-Topper and Marc Freeman sought to explore the idea of human connection and intimacy for pre-fall. In a positive note, that meant injecting clothes with comfort, through both cozy fabric selection and design. There were silhouettes that cocooned and wrapped the body, like a transparent Lurex knit top and roomy, angora wool windowpane coat with detachable scarf to bundle up in. Sporty zip-up bodysuits and sweaters with a casual element rounded out wardrobe enhancers essential for layering.
A hallmark of the brand is approachable, easy chic, found namely in empowered tailoring. A plaid coat cut on the bias was a striking example of understated luxury for both its contouring effect and easy wear. A velvet herringbone blazer featured strong, accentuated shoulders in a great proposition for power suiting. They played to house codes of harmonious contrasts by offering fluid evening dresses to offset structured tailoring. There was an effortlessness to a billowy sheer red dress with great movement, and playfulness in the fringe framing an hourglass shape to a camel dress.
Freeman-Topper made a point to highlight the brand’s seasonless appeal. “I’ve always said Camilla and Marc is forever,” she said on a call from Australia, adding: “We have pieces

Alice + Olivia Pre-Fall 2019

Designer Stacey Bendet is all about emotional clothing. It’s what drives her design process, which has undertones of female empowerment. It also drove a new direction in the look book shoot to mirror videos she’s made recently that bring her clothes to life. She shot against a black backdrop to allow the clothes to really pop. Her theme for the season, after all, was a blend of pop art, Twiggy and the swinging Sixties, but brought into modern day with her signature thread of eclectic confidence.
The mixed prints here were the most striking, and ranged from a rainbow of snake prints on an accordion pleat dress to a wicked mash-up of florals, animal prints, mod checks and stripes in an easy wrap gown. She extracted the florals to create a burnout fabric, which she pieced together into a flowy colorful dress. She highlighted colorblocking elsewhere with a great tailored plaid trench and matching miniskirt.
The collection maintained an energetic tone that worked for a number occasions. A lightweight black-and-white plaid coat for day, sexy snakeskin burnout separates and saturated monochromatic looks for the office, or a patchwork denim jacket that read “love more” and “game changer” to keep it cool while

Naeem Khan Pre-Fall 2019

Naeem Khan lives in a world of opulence. Elaborately embroidered gowns, as in one this season with captivating floral appliqué, and drama, like red and navy iterations of a bridal jumpsuit with overskirt, factor heavily into his seasonal offerings. But with jumpsuits and short flirty dresses accounting for 40 percent of his bridal business, Khan is aware of a want for ease. His previous endeavors from spring and resort, especially, have focused on separates and an approachable glamour for a younger clientele.
He continued that narrative for pre-fall, and the range of occasions was quite vast. For girls not quite ready for a long-term commitment, Khan offered sheer beaded jackets and delicate yet formal sweaters that easily transitioned day-to-night for multiple wear opportunity. Silhouettes remained relaxed, as in sequined or drawstring pants with skin-baring side strips that maintained an element of allure. He offered new bold jungle and tropical prints for summer destinations, too, cut into lightweight, packable dresses and a body-curving caftan. The real standouts here were minimalistic dresses influenced by his time at Halston, including sequin knit dresses that form like liquid on the body and a new version of a caftan in seductive red that’s fitted in front

Salvatore Ferragamo Pre-Fall 2019

The company’s rich archives, the vivid colors of 16th-century painter Bronzino, whose paintings are on show at the Galleria degli Uffizi in Florence, as well as the effortless sartorial elegance of iconic men, including Mick Jagger and John Kennedy Jr., served as inspiration for the Salvatore Ferragamo women’s and men’s pre-fall collection.
During a walk-through at the company’s Milanese headquarters, women’s creative director Paul Andrew and men’s design director Guillaume Meilland put the focus on the coherent attitude running through the women’s and men’s looks. These actually exuded the same luxurious elegance, revealing the high-end craftsmanship deeply rooted in the brand’s heritage.
Taking a step back from the dark tones of the last few collections, the designers played with a lighter, more lively color palette, including bright green, orange, red and ice gray. Constructions were also softened to welcome a sense of relaxed sophistication. For example, upscale padded coats were crafted from silky fabrics, men’s shearling and leather jackets and women’s suede trenchcoats were cut in clean, lean silhouettes, while chic suits revealed a deconstructed approach.
Knitwear took center stage with precious plissé skirts, dresses showing built-in ties to wrap around the neck and embroidered cashmere sweaters. Archival prints were revamped included the

Nanushka Pre-Fall 2019

“Effortless femininity that reflects the brand’s signature, modern nomadic aesthetic infused by Seventies interior design inspiration. I’m really attracted to the Seventies interiors and also the Seventies architecture,” Budapest-based Nanushka designer Sandra Sandor said of her vast pre-fall collection, pointing to Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill and Mexican artist Javier Senosiain. The collection leaned more Bofill than Senosiain with clean lines and an earth tone palette but the largest inspiration came from Seventies-inspired interiors and upholstery. For instance, velvet puffed bags and vegan leather garments such as a quilted, updated version of its Hude puffer jacket embodied a comfortable yet clean upholstery. Prints were also inspired by vintage duvets: a washed floral tank top and underlayer set or new snake print on a button-up shirt and skirt combination and updated puffer jacket.
The nomadic aesthetic — “the essence of the Nanushka philosophy” — that is rooted in the brand’s Hungarian roots flowed through in relaxed, elongated silhouettes such as long sweaters piled over skirts or daydresses with Western hints on their pockets and collars. Sandor also used tonal, fabric covered rope and tie-techniques to emphasize the female figure. There were wrapped silk dresses as well as front-tie napa leather offerings. Accessories included a

Inspired by a post-World War I quote from curator Alistair O’Neill, “Women had gotten used to wearing their husbands’ cardigans,” Fran Stringer patched together feminine and masculine silhouettes for this cozy, laid-back collection.
Oversized knitwear was worn over flowy knitted trousers, while other knits included a cable-knit granddad-style cardigan and a twin set in the form of a khaki brown sweater and asymmetric skirt with ribbing.

Stringer also adopted a “make do and mend” attitude. Classic cable-knit and intarsia argyle styles were reworked and patched together and whipped into a multicolored boxy jumper and a midi dress in black and green with a high neck.
Details on other knits included ruffle cuffs and necklines and vintage-looking buttons on oversized cardigans. An outfit composed of a roomy, acid green twin set and cargo-style military trousers with a high waist looked cool and chic.

Temperley London Pre-Fall 2019

Alice Temperley has been rethinking her business structure and embracing change — the ultimate aim being to sharpen her focus and offer smaller, but better-targeted collections.
Her latest pre-fall range offers a taste of her renewed vision for the brand: Her flair for color, pattern and all things feminine and sequined remain intact, but she is embracing a more laid-back mood and adding a heftier dose of daywear into the mix.
It came in the form of chic shirtdresses, loose tailoring and silk kimono jackets, drawing on the designer’s love of Japanese design and culture.
She also looked to Eastern woodblock prints and Japanese graphic designer Tadanori Yokoo’s posters and matchboxes to inspire the season’s prints. They were loosely translated in the form of geometric patterns on loose tailored pieces or gold flame patterns featured on silk lamé dresses.
One silk lamé dress came in a bright chartreuse shade and a wrap silhouette. The way it flowed around the body and its ability to transition from day to night seemed to encapsulate Temperley’s new direction and the potential of the brand in daywear.
The designer also wanted to add a stronger sense of ease in the range’s eveningwear section, which remains key nevertheless: Sequins were

AlexaChung Pre-Fall 2019

Since launching her eponymous label, Chung has experimented with an array of characters and personalities: She took her woman from airport lounges to music gigs and channeled some of her literary heroines such as Virginia Wolf, but she now has a more focused idea of the direction she wants to take. Her latest muse is Joan, named after Joan of Arc.
“At the beginning of this journey, we were just making things for fun, and figuring it out as it went along. Now it seems to me that a woman is emerging, and Joan of Arc felt like a good symbolic person to start with, because it’s about reframing how we perceive feminine strength,” Chung mused during a preview. “We started with a call to arms, but ended with something very soft and pretty and the idea that there is as much power in leaning into your vulnerabilities. Her in the nightgown is better than her with the sword.”
Chung translated all of this into metallic suits, fishnet blouses, and snake-printed corseted tops — a modern take on armor. They were juxtaposed with more romantic ruffled skirts and charming high-necked floral blouses, broderie anglaise dresses and loose knits with heart intarsias on the sleeves.

Agnona Pre-Fall 2019

Frida Kahlo served as inspiration for several designers over the decades. Agnona creative director Simon Holloway, though, focused on a more personal and private aspect of the Mexican artist, rather than on her colorful and exotic style.
Inspired by an exhibition of her personal belongings hosted at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum earlier this year, Holloway looked at Kahlo’s makeup and fragrances, which stimulated his sophisticated color sensibility. Delicate blush and pink tones were juxtaposed with purple, brown and gray shades in the elegant collection, which offered an upscale, covetable wardrobe for women looking for timeless, durable pieces with a modern spin.
Agnona’s outstanding textile quality stood out in the plush, cozy yet lightweight designs, including an effortless chic ribbed cardigan layered on a sable fur vest, felted cashmere narrow double-breasted coats and hyper feminine plissé knitted skirts and tops. The sense of relaxed refinement infused in the lineup was highlighted by the velour tracksuits worn with oversize camel coats, while trenchcoats crafted from luxurious performance materials revealed the collection’s practical attitude.
Continuing working with a coherent and cohesive approach, Holloway is actually shaping the new image of the Agnona brand, which is actually widening its offering to welcome onboard the younger generations

Dior Pre-Fall 2019

Oh, how times have changed. Back in 1968, a pop music show on French TV might feature Françoise Hardy performing in a dress custom-made by Christian Dior from an original sketch by Sonia Delaunay. As a bonus, the segment in question began with Delaunay and Dior couturier Marc Bohan discussing the collaboration.
Cut to 2018, when a designer outfit might merit at best a cursory glance and “like” on Instagram, before the eye skips to the next quick-fix gratification. Maria Grazia Chiuri knows today’s audience has little patience for the complexities of technique and design, yet she’s also convinced they are the essence of luxury.
Her pre-fall collection reveled in the kind of intricate detail that gets lost in pictures, but forges a powerful emotional connection in real life. That gripping archival footage of an 83-year-old Delaunay got her thinking about how the artist used embroidery and color in her work in the early 20th century.
“I think it was really something revolutionary for the time,” Chiuri mused.
In intellectual terms, the collection was all about craft as a vehicle for women’s artistic expression — as explored in feminist art historian Rozsika Parker’s seminal book “The Subversive Stitch.” On an emotional level, it connected with

Chloé Pre-Fall 2019

Natacha Ramsay-Levi built on the key elements that have become associated with the Chloé look since taking over the creative helm three seasons ago, moving between the clashing colors and prints of the line’s Seventies mix and a more proper bourgeois vibe à la Eighties — with a dash of Victoriana in the tie-neck blouses.
“The way we do fashion now is a lot about remixes and transformation, doing something new with something old,” she said.
The collection’s boho vibe was on fine form, as always without too much of a romantic tilt, with the designer folding feminine soft elements like printed silk blouses and scarves into hard-edged looks. Key ingredients included Carnaby Street-inspired velvet; trompe l’oeil-printed houndstooth fabrics that gave a horsey, “Wuthering Heights” flavor, and utilitarian wear.
Standout silhouettes included a flower-print, high-neck sweater with billowing sleeves and long, ribbed cuffs worn under a silk dress in a patchwork of flower prints with asymmetric flounces; a black silk, Victoriana-style, tie-neck blouse with a big, white, lace collar worn with high-waisted flared shorts in a cool, wool, check fabric; and a high-neck blouse in a bourgeois, chain-link print with a signature horse logo, jacquard, knitted vest, worn with ultra-long, flared purple pants.

Staud Pre-Fall 2019

“Sand, summer, sea,” Sarah Staudinger described of the beginnings of her latest collection for Staud. From the sand, terry cloth was introduced à la striped three-piece sets — cropped top, skirt, duster — with matching bucket hat and Bisset bag, as well as beach ready cover-ups — raw-edge seashell-colored linen sarongs with raw edges, jumpsuits and tunics and men’s wear-inspired button-ups. Summer was encapsulated through an array of adorable picnic inspired garb in poppy hues like tablecloth gingham compact knit playsuits and matching sets and plenty of crudite emblazoned offerings. The best foodie-looks included a salad printed waffle minidress with matching cardigan or a matching neon green knit set with fringe made of mini glass lemons (and matching croakies). To round out the collection, vibrant technical tube tops, skirts, shorts and dresses of varying lengths referenced the sea with pull-ties to create volume and billowing sleeves.
Accessories were a hit as well — old bags had new prints (gingham) or fabrics (linen and lizard) while new bags came triangular (big and small) and cylindrical; there were even leather sunglass-case attachments and matching sandals to complete the looks. The lineup was playful and encapsulated the fresh summer feeling through the more

The lineup’s eye-catching look was conveyed through the flamboyant patchwork of jacquard motifs peppering coats, the graphic wild animal motifs printed on suits — their mannish silhouettes softened by the plush velvet fabric — as well as by slightly exaggerated shapes. For example, a blue Neoprene blazer and deep green trenchcoat, which was layered over a feminine, ruffled silk dress, showed bold, oversize cuts.
Denim enhanced the urban vibe of the collection with bleached jeans matched with a two-tone faux fur coat and loafers for an updated, cool tomboy look. Slim jeans were also matched with sartorial jackets, enriched by maxi buttons adding an eccentric touch.

Nicole Miller RTW Pre-Fall 2019

Nicole Miller featured her pre-fall collection on a character who embodied its mix of tough and tender — model and professional skydiver Alyona Subbotina.
“I had such a strong personality wear them. She worked into the story because I felt I always design for that strong girl who has the feminine soft side and the edge together,” Miller mused. Camouflage prints with tiny flowers were mixed with dark floral prints on multiple easy dresses, and most memorably on an oversize utility coat. One little black dress had bows sewn all over it. “If you’re a goody-two-shoe, you make it all bows, and if you’re a badass, you make it all knots or let it hang, but I showed it half and half for duality,” the designer explained.
Miller referred to her light-colored floral frocks as “the sweeter things in life,” and mixed in bomber jackets and half-leather, half-cotton denim pants to toughen them up.

R13 Pre-Fall 2019

R13’s Chris Leba is in the throes of consolidating his offices into a new downtown space — and gearing up to open his first brick-and-mortar store on the ground level sometime next year. Women’s market is in full swing, then men’s, then women’s again.
He drew light inspiration for his pre-fall from Sofia Coppola’s film “Marie Antoinette,” enticed by its frivolity and baroque elements. Subtle winks to the film were seen in the ruffles on billowing button-down shirts, and sand-washed floral-printed silks rendered into easy and sexy tops with animal print accents. Otherwise, the collection featured Leba’s usual balance of eccentric punk, tailoring and inventive denim.
At the core of the collection were young, exciting, wearable clothes with gender-ambiguous undertones. A bleached group of suiting and sweatshirts with safety-pin embellishments provided edge to more formal men’s-inspired attire, and upcycled vintage motorcycle jackets which are specially studded in Los Angeles and can’t easily be replicated. One effortlessly cool pinstriped blazer was cut generously and studded along the lapels. Leba noted many of the tailored items could end up in the men’s line, following a recent trend of gender-fluid design.
He thrived when using denim to experiment with new, inventive shapes, such as jackets with

Lafayette 148 Pre-Fall 2019

Creative director Emily Smith’s formula for pre-fall was a little bit American southwest mixed with the work of light and space artist James Turrell, who is best known for the Roden Crater, a large-scale installation set inside a volcanic cinder cone in the Painted Desert region of Arizona. The result was a wide range of breezy silhouettes balancing a sense of ease with cool. Smith has been steering the brand in a younger direction the past few seasons, and this collection seemed to mark the full realization of those efforts.
References to the inspirations were light, and seen only through ombré, tie-dye and landscape prints in rich, earthy tones. A buttery camel leather coat with ombré effect displayed the collection’s sleek sensibility, while a gray leather jacket and skirt with the same dip-dye effect leaned more edgy and fun. Dresses were used as a canvas and featured abstract sand dunes and cloud prints — none of which read literal. An elegant chambray dress with obilike belt was the closest thing to Wild West fashion. She focused on silhouettes that lend themselves to easy summer dressing, including lounge-y and chic pajama sets, cotton wrap-front blouses and a great oversized travel scarf created by

Cushnie Pre-Fall 2019

A Cartier ad, an Eddie Murphy movie and Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang. It sounds like a mixed bag of references, yet Carly Cushnie managed to extract a common thread of opulence to inform her lovely pre-fall collection, brimming with sensual dresses for which the brand is known and a key expansion of daywear.
The Cartier ad was by Jean Larivière in the Fifties, where a leopard slinks its way inside a store, representing a type of otherworldly glamour you can only dream of. It led the designer to think about the late Eighties comedy “Coming to America,” where Murphy plays a prince coming to New York from a made-up African country. Mixed together, they provided Cushnie with a recipe for light Eighties silhouettes and overall posh gloss, seen in exaggerated shoulders throughout and the draped tulle sleeves of a fabulous little black dress.
Cai Guo-Qiang’s “Heritage” piece of 99 animals sharing a watering hole informed the color palette and use of mixed prints. The mixed print dresses and skirts were the most captivating upon first glance, featuring asymmetric construction offsetting animal prints, colorblocking and pleats. But monotone dresses with sculptural lines and fluid construction proved to be more seductive, like a red

See by Chloé Pre-Fall 2019

In the late Eighties and early Nineties, Amy Arbus took her first street-style photographs in New York. For pre-fall, the Parisian See by Chloé girl channels those streets — “a time when youth culture thrived amidst the city’s diverse social scenes” — clad in a juxtaposition of boyish-prep-meets-fresh-femininity. Cue Prince of Wales carrot pants paired with a lilac, Victorian-inspired ruffled shirt and chunky clogs, or a varsity poncho over a drop-hem day dress and paisley pussy-bow blouse.
Paisley prints and embroidered trims ran their course throughout in faded and dusty blues on flirty matching sets and breezy dresses, while sweaters — from chunky ribbed or slightly distressed dresses to sweater vests and cardigans — kept looks cool. A particularly great paisley sweater, paired with oversized denim shorts, made for a great mash-up, as did the strongest look: a gold brocade button-up shirt, cinched under a wide belt and paired with a paneled gray denim and beige cotton carrot pant. The lineup gave modern interpretation to Arbus characters of yore.

Givenchy Pre-Fall 2019

“It’s just amazing how dynamic society is today, how global events just rear their heads and it changes the environment that you’re in, even the pace of what we do — everything,” said Clare Waight Keller.
The designer was talking about the genesis of her pre-fall collection for Givenchy, which was inspired by Joseph Cambell’s classic “The Power of Myth,” a book she turned to recently in an effort to make sense of an increasingly chaotic environment. The Greek myth of Icarus, whose hubris led to his demise, felt particularly relevant.
Waight Keller was drawn to its symbolism, in an era when nuclear war — or a Chinese consumer boycott — may be just an ill-judged social media message away. She also liked how it provided a graphic hook for the women’s and men’s looks, in the form of hand-painted prints and bursts of solar yellow and fiery red.
The women’s wardrobe was structured around two key silhouettes: long and lean for the tailored coats with neat shoulders, crisp bolero jackets with finlike arched sleeves, and monochrome evening gowns; boldly oversized for the fake furs, cocoon coats and Eighties-style leather trenches.
Hand-crafted details abounded, from the threaded ruching on the front of a buttery

JW Anderson Looks to Eighties Gilbert & George for Spring 2019 Capsule

LONDON — Jonathan Anderson is looking to the Eighties works of Gilbert & George, and specifically their early street shots of East End boys, for a men’s and women’s capsule that will launch Dec. 3 at Matchesfashion.com.
JW Anderson x Gilbert & George is part of the designer’s spring/summer 2019 collection and is meant to celebrate the artists, their take on masculinity and British modern life. Anderson has focused on three of his favorite works by the artistic duo: “Guard Plants” (1980), “Dog Boy” (1980) and “Heavy” (1988).
Gilbert & George’s candid shots of “normal” kids on the streets of London’s East End helped to make them famous, and by the end of the decade, works such as Heavy had become more stylized and reflective of the duo’s love of William Blake’s poetry.
“Guard Plants” shows the face of a boy in military-style uniform framed by leaves and vines in intense primary colors, while “Dog Boy” is a black-and-white shot of a teenage kid flanked by rows of flowers in full bloom. “Heavy” shows three dreamy young men floating in the sky with hair that looks as if it’s on fire.

Tanya Taylor Pre-Fall 2019

“Lisbon is the coolest, it’s like a melting pot of all of your different cities.…It doesn’t feel like it’s fully finalized its identity, which I love, because you’re still discovering and it’s not like every tourist is at the same place,” designer Tanya Taylor said of her first trip to Portugal in August. From her travels, Taylor brought back the breezy, coastal spirit and infused it into her latest pre-fall collection.
Shapes felt clean and fresh, cut slimmer with flirty open-back details or slightly puffed sleeves in place of the anticipated abundance of ruffles. “Everything just felt so easy and soft and kind of feminine,” Tanya described of Portugal, which she infused into her line à la a palette of classic blues (from navy to “minty-turquoise”) and purples in various artful floral prints, as well as black-and-white polka dots, on easy dresses and flowy skirts. Newness came through knits: electric lime pointelle and chunky, striped terry-cloth-matching cardigans and little cropped sweaters, sporty knit dresses.
Taylor rounded out the collection with a group of red and blue surfer étoile printed pieces inspired by her time at Gigi’s Beach Bar in the Portuguese Algarve region. The collection embodied Taylor description of her girl:

Sally LaPointe Pre-Fall 2019

Real or faux? As the great fur debate has moved brands passionately one way or the other, Sally LaPointe has kept her cool. The designer has become synonymous with covetable fur-accented sweaters and, with the launch of e-commerce earlier this year, has certainly seen a demand for mink. But she also introduced faux fur and shearling for resort and has seen interest here from a younger, more conscientious clientele.
She continued to expand that fur language into pre-fall, using fox fur as trimming on cozy-yet-sleek knitwear while utilizing faux fur and shearling in bold, statement outerwear. The brand is founded upon the principle of casual yet cool glam, so a faux-fur duster was grounded with a cut-and-sew wool alpaca set or sequined pants and a turtleneck, topped off by silver o-ring zipper pulls.
The collection’s Nineties tinge was drawn from men’s wear, which influenced soft tailoring done in dusty yellows and blues, sweatsuits made from Lurex and merino wool, and pinstripes fashioned into a standout graphic cashmere and merino wool top and pant. No look better defined the retro men’s influence than knit basketball shorts and a sweater set cut in a yummy papaya hue. Buttery suede separates, elevated silky pajama sets

L’Autre Chose Pre-Fall 2019

Nicolò Beretta made his ready-to-wear debut at L’Autre Chose, which he joined in September as creative director, with an easy-to-wear, commercially savvy collection.
The brand’s signature French spirit gave an effortless chic attitude to the lineup, which also celebrated the Parisian lifestyle with a charming print reproducing the view of a typical café in the City of Light.
The collection offered a realistic wardrobe for the dynamic women of today. Teddy bear coats, flared denim pants, crepe sheath dresses and silk frocks printed with elegant and feminine motifs inspired by the influence of the Eastern culture in the Twenties’ Western art, were well-executed, versatile staples. Along with developing more fashionable embroidered dresses and cozy knits, Beretta developed a smart range of blouses, enriched with special ornaments, including plissé inserts.
The founder of footwear label Giannico, Beretta masterfully showed his design skills in the footwear range, including revisited loafers embellished with drapes, boots crafted from a rubberized leather and pumps showing the chunky heels punctuated by a metallic accessory inspired by the antique handles of Parisian front doors.

Tory Burch Pre-Fall 2019

Georgia O’Keeffe — a perfect fashion muse for now, independent to the core, urbane and earthy, her defiance of convention manifested in an appealing sartorial practicality. She offers a wealth of visual imagery to mine, both in her work and the portraits of her by her husband, Alfred Stieglitz.
“I just love her, and how she went against the norm,” Tory Burch said during a walk-through of her pre-fall collection. “She was a person who wasn’t going to wear a corset, and she wore flats. Just the way she approached nature and her subjects is fascinating to me.”
That fascination led to an investigative trip to Santa Fe and O’Keeffe’s famed Ghost Ranch, from which Burch drew inspiration for her lineup. It features clean, unfettered silhouettes with hints the artist’s own style — crisp shirtdresses, an unfussy smocked number, subtle Japanese touches. From O’Keeffe’s work, Burch took saturated shades of warm, russets and reds played against sober navy, ivory black and white. She also incorporated abstract prints, bold stripes, cowhide and unfussy decorative elements such as mirror embroideries for an aura of casual confidence. Burch also worked in the occasional embroidered slipdress. Whether a nod to O’Keeffe’s New York years or merely

Valentino RTW and Men’s Pre-Fall 2019

TOKYO — A day after unveiling a new retail concept at its Ginza flagship store, Valentino staged its first runway show in Japan since the Eighties, with creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli also showing women’s wear and men’s wear together for the first time.
“In Japan and in the world today, I don’t think you feel such a difference between genders,” the designer said. “It’s a different way of working, but the philosophy behind men and women I think is the same. So the clothes are different, a different wardrobe, but the values are the same.”
Piccioli drew on classic couture detailing for women and tailoring for men, but reimagined them in a more modern way that is more appropriate for every day.
“I didn’t want to do streetwear or daywear generically,” he said. “I wanted to get the identity of the house, but going into the street.”
The result was a pre-fall collection that struck a perfect balance between red-carpet drama and practicality. Many of the most iconic codes of Valentino could be found yet refreshed. Flowers, such as those that adorned the dress Marisa Berenson was photographed in for Vogue in 1968, showed up as tiny buds adorning a knit dress with rows

Jil Sander RTW Pre-Fall 2019

Lucie and Luke Meier continue to reshape the image of the Jil Sander label with a balance between elegance and coolness. Those customers who cried after Phoebe Philo exited Celine will find plenty of options here to satisfy their needs for revamped minimalism — long a Sander signature, going back to the days of the brand’s founder.
Generous yet graphic shapes, sculptural yet simple silhouettes, straightforward yet comforting messages — the designers played with contrasting forces, which they balanced in a wardrobe translating an idea of intellectual, elevated and empowered femininity.
The Meiers like to play with a sense of coziness, from the roomy cashmere coats layered over mannish suits and the flocked ample tops and dresses worked in wallpaper-like patterns to the super soft oversize padded outerwear wrapping around the body.
Checkered blankets became sophisticated fringed tops and coats, while floral eyelet brought a feminine touch to chic separates with a sartorial feel.
A hint of discreet eccentricity was added with the patchwork of striped motifs, rendered on graphic shirts, crewneck tops, pants with buttons running down the legs and pencil skirts, highlighting the playful side of the Jil Sander woman.

Etro Pre-Fall 2019

“Artsy Craftsy” was the name of Etro’s pre-fall collection. “The collection is inspired by strong women such as art collectors who like to travel and love bold colors, patterns and unique techniques,” said the brand’s women’s wear creative director Veronica Etro, highlighting the artistic spirit she infused into her lineup. This visually impactful flair, conveyed with a flamboyant métissage of paisley motifs, floral graphics, jacquard drawings and bold colorblocking, refreshed the nomadic attitude traditionally associated with the Milanese brand.
While playing with rich fabrics, prints and textures, Etro kept the silhouettes clean and linear. Eye-catching patchwork coats and jackets, including a blazer crafted from a tactile, 3-D material and trimmed with contrasting piping, were matched with cropped, slightly flared denim pants or fluid, silk trousers showing asymmetric prints running down the legs.
The breezy dresses had a vibrant feel, evoking Latin American rhythms, while elegant styles in solid black, including a chic belted evening jacket cut from a technical fabric and a cashmere coat, revealed subtle tone-on-tone decorations for a more discreet take on Etro’s signature maximalist style.

Burberry Men’s and Women’s Autumn/Winter 2019 Pre-Collection

Riccardo Tisci has just begun to make his mark on Burberry, so it’s no surprise that he’s traveling the path set out in September, doing women’s and men’s clothing for multiple generations and moments in the day.
Burberry’s chief creative officer said he wanted this collection to be a continuation of the story he began telling earlier this year. “I’m focusing on establishing our codes through archive prints, house colors and iconic outerwear, while cementing the new themes I set out last season.”
Tisci built on his beloved animal motifs: Gorilla faces stared out from T-shirts while unicorns galloped over a padded, silk shawl. A leopard collar curled around the neck of a Dalmatian print car coat while leather bridle straps, a nod to the old Burberry knight-on-horseback logo, adorned trenches and suit jackets. A faux patchwork shearling coat bowed to the house’s new anti-fur policy.
The new TB monogram, which Tisci unveiled earlier this year, was out in force, transformed into dark green camouflage for a hoodie, shorts and a cape, and in a more delicate iterations on scarves, satin skirts and silk blouses. The intertwined TB popped as a big logo on a punchy orange puffer vest, while a shadowy TB motif

Alexander McQueen Resort 2019

A Victorian seaside breeze blew through this collection, which was filled with contrasting elements: hard and soft, chunky and delicate, tailored and fluid. Among Sarah Burton’s inspirations was the British paleontologist Mary Anning, the British shoreline and the era’s obsession for collecting and categorizing bits of nature. There was broderie anglaise everywhere, worked into long white dresses, tunic tops or short ruffle skirts. All that demureness was balanced by leather corset belts, harness tops or thick cashmere sweaters. Other dresses came as sheer lacy knits as delicate as lingerie, with ruffles, bell sleeves or breezy tiers on the skirts. Tailoring had a whiff of Victoriana, too, as in a shell print suit layered over a sheer lacy blouse. A long military coat with a slashed waist had an abstract Union Jack pattern and resembled something that might have washed ashore in a shipwreck.

Roland Mouret Resort 2019

Roland Mouret is eager for his woman to kick back, relax – or run around – with these fluid, draped clothes, which are meant for all-day or all-night wear.
Mouret described these pieces as “a best companion, a best friend” and said he wants his women to exhale into them. The collection was colorful and meant for movement, with sporty touches such as knits and sleeveless jackets with flashes of perforated fabric and a stretchy lining for a silver sequin gown, with a slit up the front. “You can run in it, move around and dance in it. You can live with this dress,” said the designer.
He worked bouclé stretch into a tailored suit and a fitted skirt and offered up a softly-structured, single–breasted trench with a belted waist. Other athletic touches came in the form of a ribbed knit tank dress and a languid jumpsuit with a stretchy waist, and loose tabard knits in bright colors. Things got even more comfortable with pajama–like tops and jackets that were draped at the back, and long tunic dresses with detachable skirts.

Neglect Adult Patients RTW Spring 2019

Name: Neglect Adult Patients
Main message: Designer Junnosuke Watanabe has a diverse background, having studied political science and economics at Waseda University and performed as a member of a Japanese music group. For his first runway show, he played on his unusual brand name and turned out a hospital-themed collection, even sending out models in mint green gowns and scrub suits. There were also T-shirts and sweatshirts with slogans such as “Touch me, I’m heavy sick” and “Medical play.” He filled out the offering with a series of shorts and jackets in red plaid, leopard print and ath-leisure fabrics.
The result: Despite some odd English phrases, the clothes were pedestrian and showed Watanabe’s inexperience, although he’ll likely find customers among his fans. But it’s not clear that he needed a runway show to do it.

Mitsuru Okazaki RTW Spring 2019

Name: Mitsuru Okazaki
Main message: Yohji Yamamoto alum Mitsuru Okazaki’s brand is only in its second season, but it is already establishing itself as one to watch during Tokyo Fashion Week. The designer is adept at creating unexpected shapes out of simple textiles, such as the denim skirts topped with petal-like layers or the white pants covered in pyramid-shaped puckers that he sent down his spring runway. He also did interesting things with concealed zippers, placing them on balloon sleeves and pant legs so that when zipped open they looked like multiple slits, sometimes in contrasting colors. Diagonal stripes and colorblocking gave movement to otherwise simple tapered trousers and button-down shirts.
The result: The collection was both cohesive and inventive, as well as casual and real-world friendly, making it a strong second effort. And unlike many designers who show in Tokyo, Okazaki demonstrated his ability to self-edit.

The knits were many and varied, from oversize, mixed-texture sweaters to open knit dresses and crop tops with openings at the elbows. But she combined these with silky and velour blouses, sheer mesh pants, and loose-fitting denim for a contrast of textures. The lines were clean and the colors classic shades of navy, beige, white and red, while bits of fringe and lace created focal points.
The result: Odaka delivered a strong offering with a clear point of view and unique sensibility, proving she deserves a spot on Tokyo’s regular fashion week calendar.

They showed loose, ankle-length dresses and skirts in sheer mesh or botanical prints, paired with fringed knits, wide herringbone striped tunics and linen suits. A few all-black looks, some with dark leopard-print pants or metallic accents, kept it from feeling too sweet or predictable.

Christopher Kane Resort 2019

The designer took Tokyo’s dark side as his theme for this racy collection of neon sign colors, and textures and silhouettes that nodded to the city’s myriad sex clubs. The rubberized red lace dress and matching coat encapsulated the dark and slightly sinister mood of the collection, which was shot at night by Laurence Ellis.
Lacy lingerie dresses with barely there, rounded skirts had a Goth feel, as did a see-through black dress layered over a bright purple bra. There were some razor-sharp edges, too, in the form of pointed, jutting lapels on a black, rhinestone-edged satin coat and sporty tailored jacket. Softness came in the form of a two-tone hoodie with “More Baby More” written in iridescent letters across the front and a long and billowy white shirt proclaiming that universal truth: “Sh** Happens.”
During a walk-through, Kane said Tokyo has always offered “endless inspiration for me,” adding that his love of subversion is “never at the expense of the clothes. I want to empower women when they put on my work.”

Its kitschy vibe and beachy influences translated into a fun collection of urban cool-girl clothes. The designer said she was inspired by the makeup and high heel-wearing beachgoers from her home country. She sent out sequin-encrusted T-shirt dresses, Hawaiian sunset-print shirts, and denim with unfinished edges and plenty of cargo pockets. A standout fur-like frayed denim jacket closed the show.
The result: With high energy, a clear theme and a fresh feeling, the collection was one of the most promising of the first half of the week, and showed that the designer doesn’t take herself too seriously.

Main message: A stark white runway got pops of bright greens, yellows and blues as Hare’s models walked in sporty mesh dresses, straight-leg pants, ankle-length skirts and bomber jackets. The silhouettes were familiar but the brand, designed by a team, has a large digital following, proving its commercial appeal. A head-to-toe shibori tie-dye look on denim and chambray, and a satin jumpsuit in a marbled paint print stood out, while details such as fanny packs and large cargo pockets hinted at a Nineties theme.
The result: While the pieces themselves were not particularly exciting, the styling and accessories helped to elevate them slightly, and the bright colors contrasting with black and white felt fresh.

Jenny Fax RTW Spring 2019

Name: Jenny Fax
Main message: “An ordinary girl from a small town is going to buy a flower print dress for her date. That is so romantically sad,” said Shueh Jen-Fang’s show notes. Prone to taking inspiration from childhood themes and experiences, the designer made this collection a grown-up storybook tale. Spanning clown-like jumpsuits with exaggerated shoulders to sweet floral or pastel dresses with huge pockets, it permeated humor. But there were also plenty of less innocent details, like dresses, skirts and long fringed shorts worn with buttons and zippers undone to show the navel, or satin thong underwear attached to the outside of frocks and extending all the way up to the shoulders. Tiny cropped jackets, an oversize, stonewashed denim double-breasted blazer, and mismatched sleeves played with proportion.
The result: As the last show of Tokyo’s spring fashion week, it did not disappoint, cleverly mixing together unique yet wearable pieces with more theatrical, conceptual ones.

Takeshi Osumi and Yuichi Yoshii’s shows have come to be known as a highlight of Tokyo Fashion Week, and this season was no different. Since they began staging runway shows, they have honed their style so that each collection is fun and uplifting, and stylish with a hint of humor. The theme for spring was “vibrant,” which was clearly illustrated through their diverse color palette.
The designers layered sheer T-shirts over solid ones, sheer bomber jackets over button-down shirts, and sheer shorts over khaki ones. Bright neon trim appeared on the cuffs of dress shirts and at the back of trenchcoats, and panels of contrasting fabric were added to moto jackets and short-sleeved shirts. A series of color-blocked leggings and body-hugging jumpsuits in mixed prints were worn under more formal pieces such as blazers and toggle coats.
From socks with sporty drawcord tops to bags made by Outdoor Products, Karrimor and Speedo, the accessories rounded out the collection with fun and function.

Figue RTW Spring 2019

Stephanie von Watzdorf was awash in the afterglow of the Meghan Markle effect when presenting her spring Figue collection. The Duchess of Sussex wore a floral dress from the collection for her first speech on the royal tour in Fiji earlier this week. “She’s in Fiji, which is one of my dream destinations, and she’s talking about women’s empowerment and education, which is so on my radar, aside from animals and outfits,” said von Watzdorf, adding that Markle’s effect on sales is real.
As for the spring collection, von Watzdorf titled it Nomad Love. She culled decorative elements — stripes, beading, florals, embroidery — from nomadic tribes the world over and coalesced them into pajama tops and bottoms, silk and cotton caftans, peasant tops and robes that fit the bill for pretty, bohemian style whether you’re wandering the globe or going about your everyday life and want something that telegraphs “summer.” What felt newest were airy, voluminous cotton dresses in polka dots, a quilted ikat robe and a great pearl and evil eye jewelry collaboration with Beck Jewels.

Tory Sport RTW Spring 2019

Two-and-a-half years after Tory Burch launched Tory Sport, the brand’s performance results are coming in. “It’s interesting to start to see what the business is coming to,” Burch said last week during a preview of the spring collection. “We’re starting to see what makes sense, less is more, and what is working for us.” The collection is not just cute, colorful and branded, although it is definitively all of those things — it’s also become a viable player in terms of performance wear. Yoga and running, particularly the seamless pieces, are doing well, as is golf.
For spring, Burch amped up the color with the Bauhaus principles of form and function in mind, working in fuchsia, red, green, blue and white in graphic stripes and lots of chevron. The clothes she wore to play sports in high school in the Seventies were on her mind, so chevron track jackets and silky soccer jerseys were updated in lightweight, breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics as opposed to the pure polyester the vintage styles came in. Weatherproof outerwear stood out, as did a few fabulous chunky hand knit cotton sweaters that fell into Tory Sport’s “coming and going” category. There was a new tennis skort and

Berluti Men’s Spring 2019

While fellow designers Kim Jones at Dior and Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton were making splashy runway debuts in June, Kris Van Assche was quietly unveiling his first collection for Berluti to buyers in showroom appointments.
Editors discovered the collection this week, when it was presented in a temporary glass-walled pavilion designed by Jean Prouvé, set up on the Place de la Concorde in Paris to coincide with the FIAC contemporary art fair.
Designed as a prologue to his first runway show, scheduled for January, the capsule line reflected the mix of tailoring and sportswear that has been a trademark of Van Assche’s previous work, both at Dior men’s and for his own label.
Cropped-leg suits and white shirts, some with black leather patches, rubbed shoulders with smart cashmere blousons and hoodies, including one in paper-thin red lamb leather.
Van Assche used the Scritto, an 18th-century manuscript motif that normally appears on Berluti shoes, in a variety of guises: as a graphic black print on a white T-shirt, a multicolored pattern on a black shirt, or tone-on-tone jacquard accents on a cream tuxedo.
The house’s trademark patina appeared as a blue and red colorway deployed across clothing — such as a cashmere and silk crewneck

Rabd Men’s Spring 2019

Name: Rabd
Main message: According to its profile, this brand aims to make “clothing that adds colors and [an] uplifting feeling for everyday life,” but you would never guess it from its spring collection. Designer Kanya Miki, a former assistant to John Galliano, showed a severe collection in shades of black, white and gray. He paired wide-legged, extralong pants with motorcycle jackets or a variety of T-shirts, some with asymmetric lines. While designed for men, the offering was shown on models of both genders to demonstrate its versatility.
The result: Rabd’s first runway outing showed a cohesive and consistent collection, but the looks were so similar that it often seemed they were being repeated over and over.

Memuse RTW Spring 2019

Name: Memuse
Main message: Risa Aizawa evoked a child’s dress-up party with her latest show, seating a group of models in nude undergarments, neutral colored heels and blonde bob wigs on the floor in the center of her runway. Around them walked more models, who wore her fairytale-esque designs. With sweet, girly looks such as tulle or lace dresses covered in bows, frills and ruffles shown alongside more casual, real-world pieces including see-through raincoats and an oversize, gathered T-shirt dress printed with a cartoon character with eyes in her hair, it was like a modern-day “Alice in Wonderland.” Aizawa’s pastel palette and opulent textures, which included velour and jacquard, were contrasted by an out-of-place ankle-length, frilled frock in bright magenta, yellow, orange, blue and green.
The result: Considering her background working in a “maid café” and as a Japanese pop star, it’s not surprising that Aizawa’s design sensibility draws heavily from Tokyo subculture. And while the collection is unlikely to garner a widespread following, it’s sure to appeal to her fans and target audience.

Shohei RTW Spring 2019

Name: Shohei
Main message: Austrian designer Lisa Pek lived in Japan for two years, designing for a Japanese company. Not only did she meet her Japanese husband during this time, but the experience also shaped her design sensibility. She focuses on unique materials, including both sustainable fabrics and innovative performance textiles “in order to create fashion with a dynamic attitude.” In her debut Tokyo show, she used tech fabrics to craft color-blocked parkas, shorts and tube tops in navy, black, beige and orange. While Pek designs for both genders, the men’s offerings mimicked the designs for women, including jackets with zip-off sleeves and pants that unzipped to create shorts. Asymmetrical cutting and folding techniques added an edge to athleisure-style tube tops and dresses with drawstring details, while shirting fabrics were layered with jersey and other textiles to create deconstructed blouses.
The result: Pek’s European interpretation of Japanese style was an interesting addition to Tokyo Fashion Week, and demonstrated that the designer has potential to succeed both at home and abroad.

Lautashi RTW Spring 2019

Name: Lautashi
Main message: Model Emi Suzuki launched her brand last year, and quickly gained a following on social media. This season was the first time she participated in Tokyo Fashion Week, thanks to support from Amazon through its At Tokyo program. Rather than a traditional runway show, she chose to do a presentation in collaboration with a new media artist, saying that she wanted attendees to be able to see the detail in her clothes more clearly. Inspired by the night sky, she used zodiac, swirly galaxy and aurora borealis prints, as well as solids in both deep tones and soft, shimmering shades. She chose classic shapes like pencil skirts, wide-leg trousers, camisoles and belted jackets.
The result: The collection had obvious commercial appeal, but Suzuki didn’t take any risks with it and there was a sense that it was missing a certain polish.

Name: Wewill
Main message: Hidetaka Fukuzono blurred gender lines with his spring offering, showing blouse-like tunics, satin pants and loose-fitting jackets in soft white, ivory, olive, khaki and gray. His textiles were also soft and consisted largely of natural materials. But linen suits and jackets with oversize pockets lent a throw-back, safari vibe.
The result: The collection didn’t offer anything new and the styling was uninventive, but the clothes were high quality and utilized some beautiful fabrics.

Hyke RTW Spring 2019

For the past few seasons, Yukiko Ode and Hideaki Yoshihara have been reinterpreting classic military pieces, and this spring, they drew inspiration from Thirties and Forties coats and pants from American, British and French armed forces. Their show was held in a warehouse near Tokyo Bay, and the simple raw concrete backdrop allowed the clothes to take center stage.
The designers put their own modern take on salvage parkas, chambray shirts, field jackets and pants, flight jackets, motorcycle pants and more. They mixed these with pleated chiffon skirts, sheer mesh dresses, ankle-length knit smocks, denim jackets and cotton dresses. They also showed the third season of their collaboration with The North Face, which included aggressively cropped pullovers, long rain coats, leggings, sweatshirts and T-shirts. While most of the palette centered around neutral shades of khaki, olive, navy, gray, white and black, a few calf-length dresses in red or blue and white stripes provided contrast and added a subtle nod to the nautical.
While the military influences were clear, the collection was still modern and urban, with well-cut silhouettes and quality fabrics, creating the ideal wardrobe for an urban nomad’s commute. And thanks to the pieces by The North Face, it’s also suitable for

St. John RTW Spring 2019

St. John presented a more streamlined and sleek collection during an intimate cocktail presentation in place of a showroom appointment for spring 2019. The brand felt even more elevated with mostly mannequins dressed in neutrals at the forefront of the floor-to-ceiling walls of the Glass Houses penthouse venue.
“We thought highlighting black, navy and white just sort of synthesized and streamlined it to the silhouette and form — to highlight slacks, jackets, dresses. There’s tons more color as well though,” explained Tom Jarrold, the brand’s senior vice president of marketing, branding and communications.
The silhouettes were light and easy: a long caftan continued from resort was updated in white, but also offered short and in fiery red. Transparencies made for important details in the collection on dresses and blazers. The brand is making due diligence to keep new collections close to its core DNA — continuing long line and tweed jackets, a wide array of “New Standard” basics, and dresses — while maintaining a less embellished, tightly edited and focused approach going forward.

Ihnn RTW Spring 2019

Name: Ihnn
Main message: South Korean-born, Tokyo-based designer Chisung Ihn made his runway debut outdoors at his alma mater, Bunka Fashion Graduate University. The rain that came down as a drum corps signaled the start and end of the show and only added to the atmosphere.
While intended for women, the collection was partially modeled by males in bright red lipstick, a shade that was mirrored on trenchcoats, bustier tops and open knits. Other colors were equally bold, and textures ranged from sheer organza to thick pleather. Sporty pieces included a striped knit dress, tech leggings, sports bras and a skirt with multiple drawstrings.
The result: While the silhouettes were not new, the designer put his own spin on them through color and texture. But the styling was uninventive and the collection grew repetitive with too many looks.

Name: Stair
Main message: Ryoko Mukasa chose a bright, sun-filled venue for her brand’s inaugural runway show, the softly filtered green of the trees through a wall of glass setting the tone for her collection. She showed loose lavender skirts and pantsuits, bright pink and coral-colored gathered satin jumpsuits, and a layered aquamarine chiffon dress. But her strongest looks had a subtle edginess to them, such as an off-the-shoulder blouse in crisp white shirting, with a thin lace underlay at the neckline, or a checked bias-cut skirt paired with a black-and-white open-knit sweater.
The result: There were some strong pieces, but as a whole the collection felt disjointed, as if the designer tried too hard to incorporate too many contrasting elements.

Miu Miu RTW Spring 2019

Before the start of Miu Miu’s spring show, the room was dark to enhance viewing of close-up video of  models’ faces, their hair pulled back in headbands, one with a bold swipe of red across her eyelids, another with crimson lips, that was projected on white bubble letters spelling out the brand’s logo. It made you wonder if a beauty launch was afoot. In fact, the collection was about “deconstructing beauty,” explained Miuccia Prada after the show. “It’s talking about what’s interesting now — tailoring, glamour, elegance — reworking it and that’s what I did.”
You could take her at her word. The building blocks of a woman’s wardrobe, with the exception of any trace of hyper casual athleticwear, were on Prada’s table, up for reassessment. The question posed seemed to be: How to make it modern? The answer was to be to embrace the look of DIY, recycling, upcycling even if everything is brand new. It was all far from homespun, yet it took Prada’s signature ugly/pretty (but pretty perfect) trope in a different direction with a rare exploration of the messier side of imperfection. Consider the casting: aside from a few big name models, the runway was full of

Alexander McQueen RTW Spring 2019

An earthy majesty defines Sarah Burton’s work for Alexander McQueen. It’s raw, intimate and inspired by Britain’s rich pagan past.
For spring, Burton and her design staff visited several hallowed shrines of British paganism, including Silbury Hill and Avebury Stone Circle, sites where humans left indelible marks on nature, and where now, hundreds of years later, the two forces seem indelibly joined. She came away with a new take on her compelling, long-running heroine. “She’s always pagan, I suppose,” Burton said backstage, “rooted to the ground, rooted to the earth.” She is also typically self-sufficient, determined and powerful in her femininity, yet vulnerable, too, a concept that strikes a deep chord in our fractured world. Often, she projects an archetypal warrior goddess whose strength and gentleness manifest in unison, via, on one hand, strict tailoring, corsetry and harnesses, and on the other, gentle dresses with a look of ancient-world dishabille.
For spring, Burton focused on “a woman’s journey, the moments that she experiences in life, so birth, christening, sisterhood, motherhood, friendship. The idea of expressing feelings and being empowered by emotion and vulnerability.” All while being exquisitely turned out.
Burton is the reverse of the ready-to-wear designers who show during couture; she is

Nicolas Andreas Taralis RTW Spring 2019

To counter what he sees as the darkness of the times, Nicolas Andreas Taralis moved away from his habitual somber register, injecting his spring collection with lightness and color in a sculptural way.
Rectangular strips of technical fabric were sewn together to evoke parachutes in free fall, moving with the body in transparent strips on column and bustier dresses in white and pale yellow, scarlet and fuchsia; billowing as a pale yellow puff-ball skirt with suspenders, paired with a T-shirt that read “Heroes” — in reference to David Bowie.
Tailored pieces like a dark green nylon satin suit and a black cotton jacket were crafted from panels of fabric, leaving gashes in which the wind would rustle.
Laser-cut foliage from a military register created texture on a unisex black coat intended to evoke a shell that protects the body, a motif reprised elsewhere on a white tailored jacket, its lining showing through, and on T-shirts and shift dresses. Elsewhere, Taralis delivered a more overt political message with printed slogans like “surrender” and “disobey” on bright Japanese sports mesh vests and photo prints of protests on his jersey T-shirts, adding a touch of street to what was an interesting, quirky lineup.

Ximon Lee Spring RTW 2019

The designer in the gender-fluid, handiwork-intensive collection explored the concept of the east interpreted through a western filter. In particular, he looked to the creations of an American carpet manufacturer from the Thirties “who copied Chinese rugs.”
The designer challenged himself in the handiwork-intensive, textured collection, working with a weird palette of hues including deep purple, pistachio and mint that was outside of his comfort zone. The show set — a dingy garage with industrial lights and a wet floor sprinkled with eucalyptus oil — was equally strange.
A glitched jacquard suit in a carpet motif had a “foggy” aspect to it. Elsewhere, an eye-catching mesh dress came needle-punched with yellow silk thread, playing on the idea of forcing organic fibers into synthetic fibers.
The showpiece was an elaborate black and silver sequined robe dress, produced by hand in a workshop in Shanghai, bearing the face of an imaginary avatar.
A matching shirt and pant in a liquid mesh bonded with suiting fabric to create a wet-look effect, which was at once structured and light with an iridescence, offered the most compelling and wearable spin on the appearance-versus-reality theme.

Dušan RTW Spring 2019

Understated luxury is the code word for Dusan Paunovic’s collection, constructed from high-end fabrics that are the building blocks for his cathedral of minimalism. For spring, the Serbian-born designer worked in a muted color palette of neutrals, working a raw-edged beige and cream herringbone linen, for example, into an elegant yet relaxed spaghetti-strap dress.
Superlight cashmere and silk knits, wide-legged linen culottes and Japanese hand-pressed lamé skirts, all staples in the Dušan vocabulary, were the backbone of the lineup. The outerwear was also strong, as demonstrated with a camel Loro Piana water-repellent cashmere coat with lining and contrasting Mao collar in white neoprene.
His patchworks of supersoft silk scarf prints in a palette of navy, forest green and dusty pink, used on flowing pants and sleeveless tops with a simple tie at the back of the neck, worked a treat.

A.P.C. RTW Spring 2019

Jean and Judith Touitou took another step this season and moved outside the label’s intimate Rue Madame headquarters to show their coed lineup. They headed to a cavernous garage, emptied of cars and outfitted with roving spotlights that announced the start of the show.
The first look set the upbeat, rockabilly tone. Down the concrete car ramp came a sleek, jeans pants-and-shirt ensemble in dark blue with white stitching, a charming Elvis coiffe and pointy white boots, keys jangling from the belt. The bright blue bandana tightly wrapped around the model’s neck allowed a peek of the bright yellow T-shirt underneath.
It’s increasingly a question of survival-of-the-fittest in apparel these days and, not one to be left behind, the label is hankering after growth.
With their spring collection, the couple nudged their specific breed of easy and wearable elegance into younger territory, with their offer of jeans, colorful sweaters, smart outerwear and belt bags stamped with an A, a P or a C.
Dresses were cut sensibly, continuing in the same register as last season — non fussy, elegant and #metoo age-appropriate. These included a checked trenchcoat dress and several prairie dresses. The label’s emphasis on outerwear was expanded to include brighter colors, and

Anaïs Jourden RTW Spring 2019

Anaïs Mak captured the coming-of-age vibe she was after. Tucked into plush sofas ringing the runway, guests waited under the dimmed red lights of the club’s low ceilings, the carpet’s skull-and-flower pattern barely discernible.
But when the lights snapped on and the sentimental saxophone riff streamed out — George Michael’s “Careless Whisper,” what else? — the audience was thrust into her bedroom, or wherever she had a full-length mirror, some privacy and a closet stuffed with possibilities.
“I think the girl is exploring maturing,” said Mak, the Hong Kong-born and -based designer whose label is called Anaïs Jourden. “You see a slight ‘Lolita’ influence in the collection,” she added.
The models wore mostly dresses, occasionally with a trail of ruffles, often in a bias cut and strapless at times — one had lacing between the breasts. Wearing stiletto Barbie heels — patent leather with a puff of fake fur, no straps to secure an ankle — some teetered, while others strutted confidently, hair tied up in a tussled ponytail.
“We used to rely heavily on textures and volume,” said Mak, noting the aim was ease and fluidity this time. Speaking before the show, she pointed to a pencil-shaped dress made from cotton treated for

Louis Vuitton RTW Spring 2019

Should fashion be political?
It’s a question that has consumed editors in a week dominated by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing into sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. For better or for worse, in the era of #MeToo, a hemline is no longer just a hemline.
While some designers have shrugged off feminist readings of their collections, and others appeared to deliberately court controversy, Nicolas Ghesquière embraced the moment with his lineup of retro-futuristic clothes, shown in a maze of neon-lit tunnels set up in the courtyard of the Louvre Museum after dark.
“This is not a narrative collection. This is about my obsession to empower women,” he said after the show. “There were so many discussions the last months about the place of women, and I thought that this is really an intuition to want to give power when you are a designer.”
He did that by tapping into a few of his other obsessions: sci-fi imagery and exaggerated volumes. Dominican model Ambar Cristal Zarzuela, making her Paris debut, opened the show in an oversized blouson with mille feuille sleeves featuring photo prints of candy-colored artificial landscapes.
The sleeves were the connective tissue between his eclectic band of intergalactic explorers.

Anton Belinskiy RTW Spring 2019

Ukrainian designer Anton Belinskiy’s first fashion show had religious airs. Incense burned on the steps inside the Palais de Tokyo, while some models sported wimples.
Belinskiy explored the concept of belief, whether religious or just as a way of giving meaning to life. He relied on the imagery of the Orthodox Church, in reference to his mother’s faith and his own trips to the local church in Kiev. Religious nods were given a pop-culture spin: tiny icons were printed on simple cotton T-shirts, while a rainbow-hued circular icon was depicted on a pink beaded crop top.
Models, both male and female, carried big sports bags. “When people retreat into religion, they pack up all their belongings and disappear,” explained the designer, who founded his brand in 2009. Film stills from “Adam and Eve” were printed on leggings, skirts and trousers. Some models wore seashell necklaces, other carried ceramic donation baskets.
The show was fast-paced and youthful, but the looks were a bit all over the place. An orange shiny jumpsuit was followed by a denim leotard worn with colorful leggings, then a Hawaiian shirt, finally a black deconstructed bustier dress. Despite this, the whole offering was energetic and exciting. The finalist for the

Pihakapi RTW Spring 2019

Canadian designer Vejas Kruszewski, who won the LVMH Prix Spécial prize in 2016, chose to put his namesake brand on hold to focus on a new project. Now in its second season, Pihakapi, a brand developed in partnership with Italian leather manufacturer Pellemoda, blends high-quality leather with the 21-year-old-designer’s radical vision.
“Because the brand is leather-focused, I like to build the collection around the outerwear,” said Kruszewski at the presentation of his spring collection (the first offering was shown during men’s fashion week, Pihakapi being a unisex brand.)
A black leather trenchcoat featured details from this season’s key inspirations: mini leather horns recalling the anatomy of the stag beetle on the sleeves and a flame shaped cowboy collar. The same details were reworked on denim and jersey, as well as on a side-slit black slipdress, a welcome update to the wardrobe staple.
“I was really interested in reworking Western wear,” said the designer, gesturing to a white linen skirt with a black leather holster detail. He also created a pair of “refined chaps,” playing on the dichotomy between leather and fabric. The chocolate-colored leather added texture and serious flair to a pair of well-cut black trousers. Throwing in a couple of Grecian draped

Inès de la Fressange RTW Spring 2019

The collection, presented in a salon at the Ritz Paris, was strangely wrinkled. Not to worry — it was all part of Inès de la Fressange’s vision of Parisian chic. “People are scared of linen and see it as a difficult fabric,” said the designer. “But I wanted to show that things needn’t be perfectly ironed. It gives the feeling that you’re still on holiday.”
Nevertheless the effect was scruffy, and diverted the attention from the stronger points of the collection. There was a pair of “new denim” straight leg trousers in dark blue linen, created in reaction to the Parisian heat wave; a cowboy style red shirt — “because you can look Parisian wearing a shirt from Texas” — and an elegant two-piece beige checked suit, that de la Fressange herself was wearing.
Masculine-inspired tailoring was as efficient as always, but the designer seemed tired of churning out the same old “Parisienne” ideal. “People always think that chic has to be conventional, when there isn’t necessarily a link between the two things,” she said. “I’m bored with conventionalism.”
In reaction to that, the collection went full Seventies, with colorful printed silk shirts and flared trousers. The whole offering seemed to miss the

Kolor RTW Spring 2019

A campaign video filmed in Hollywood and a tacky karaoke bar on the outskirts of Tokyo served as the perfect backdrop for this fun, crafty collection, with the models sped up and slowed down.
The signature inventiveness of Junichi Abe, an experienced patternmaker, was in fine form with offbeat touches like an accumulation of fabric textures on a skirt, the haphazard embroidery on lace collars of sweaters, and lines of tape used to join layers to garments — including a red tulle layer on a black T-shirt — or rework volumes, giving a DIY spin.
A series of triple-layered hi-tech anoraks mixing colors and materials to create depth were terrific. More cute in mood were the colored marled knits with contrast lace accents.
The designer also revisited traditional checks in polyester on neo-geek shirts, with oversized shapes used throughout the collection.

Ioannes Spring 2019 RTW

Johannes Boehl Cronau showed his spring collection on the ground floor of Lafayette Anticipations, where models mingled on a floor strewn with pink slips of paper, wearing opened-toed mules. He continued to expose midriffs, using thinly knit bra tops this time, which he paired with cycling shorts in the same material.
The designer has a sharp focus, training his efforts on a select assortment of silhouettes that emphasize his eye for detail; he said he hoped the collection would mark a “really good start for what we’re trying to do.”
Drawing influences from carpentry from his childhood in Germany, he made a luxurious version of a tool belt, one in shiny black leather, another one in gray, which he used to complete an all-gray look. The trousers were both refined and easy, with two short zippers running vertically on the front, matched with a knit bra top.
Black nylon trousers with zips and a few flaps turned out to be an opened-up boiler suit, which was worn with a lightly knit tank top. He used the same knit for an elongated dress that had loops hanging off of the bottom, like mini arm straps.
He slightly enlarged fisherman’s hats, which came in somber hues

Shiatzy Chen RTW Spring 2019

Wang Chen Tsai-Hsia continued to strip years off her brand in this fresh, sporty, youthful collection, with tracksuit tops spliced with lace bands and sneakers finishing off all the looks.
Lengths were mainly short, with the designer moving between clean cotton silhouettes and her signature lingerie styles, including frilly slips, sheer tulle petticoats and a pretty sheer black top mixing in polka dots.
The set, with its path of colored blocks printed with symbols from a Chinese game, lent a vague “Alice in Wonderland” mood, underscored by the innocent attitude of the collection, with some looks embroidered with animals.
Rabbits climbed across a silk bomber cut slightly longer at the back, while ducks in flight animated a more minimalist pairing of a white shirt with a T-shirt shape and a black zipped skirt. A black coat teamed with beasties. The designer also sent out pared-down takes on traditional dress with illustrated landscape scenes depicting bridges and storks.
It never tipped into kitsch territory, though, with Tsai-Hsia using discreet placements and tone-on-tone embroidery. It was charming, adding personality to the collection, and space to dream.

Masha Ma RTW Spring 2019

Masha Ma kicked off her spring lineup with a shirtdress, which she described as “clinical, clean and sharp.” It was also very feminine, confirming this was an exercise in slate-cleaning. What followed marked a turn into a softer, more fluid and luxurious place with a collection that felt self assured.
She turned her back on the club scenes but her interests continue to lie in a strange, futuristic universe — and she referenced the film “Annihilation” for this season.
The color palette had less black and electric blue, but a lot of bright emerald green, yellow and safari hues. Outerwear remained an obsession, with ongoing support from sponsor Kolon Sport; highlights included a long, pale yellow rain coat with fin-like flaps jetting up off the back, a shiny emerald green bomber with oversize arms and a short tan rain jacket with a hood.
“I want my woman to be protected in my clothes but at the same time not restricted,” she said backstage before the show. She also noted the label has taken on casting director Barbara Nicoli, known for her work with Gucci, and that under new operating rules, aims for a beautiful and intellectual look.

Hyun Mi Nielsen RTW Spring 2019

Transporting her audience, as always, Hyun Mi Nielsen took to a darker place this season. Wearing strange wooden clogs with pointy toes and covered in studs — a collaboration with shoe designer Zoe Lee — models moved briskly around the room, the clip-clopping accompanied by the gentle clinking of swaying metal embellishments. Underneath the profusion of hardware, black leather, piercings and chokers — in motion, all of it — sat a compelling lineup of fresh silhouettes that conveyed beauty of an uncommon sort.
“I have this thing about light and dark,” she said, pointing to her childhood in Denmark where the winters are very dark and the summers are very light.
Still focused on her magpie collector, who can’t resist a shiny object that catches her eye, she obsessed over rivets. They decorated the clothing, gravitating to different parts of the body, covering an entire cape in one case and even stuck onto bare skin, broadening her territory.
Lightness came in the form of billowing silk, recalling her last haute couture collection — she now prefers to show her collections on the ready-to-wear calendar to better connect with clients. It came in a sparsely colored tie-dye with shades of brown and a light

Lutz Huelle RTW Spring 2019

Lutz Huelle pounced on some classics and roped them into his game. He was hankering after more elegance this season and turned to bourgeois motifs like roses, polka dots and an alligator skin print, and eager to push these couture elements out into the street.
For a dressy coat — it was beautiful — he picked a red rose print set against a dark background that added vibrancy to the colors. Puffed up shoulders from last season pushed outwards a smidgen; sleeves were wide, stopping near the elbow; the waist was cinched.
“How would she wear it?” Huelle asked. “With a sweatshirt underneath to go shopping!”
The designer also thought about mothers and daughters raiding each other’s closets — not to mention the father’s wardrobe.
“This whole notion of old and new is completely gone, in a way, because a beautiful garment is a beautiful garment…there’s no rule about how people dress these days,” the designer observed backstage before the show.
Taking full advantage of this welcome state of affairs, he offered a lineup of deconstructed jean jackets, bombers with ruffles or drawn tight to the waist with a Fifties New Look flair, and, what he claimed to be his first jacquard cocktail dress. This,

Off-White RTW Spring 2019

“Dress good to look good. Look good to feel good. And feel good to run fast!”
That quote from Olympic champion Florence Griffith Joyner holds particular resonance for Virgil Abloh, who after his collaboration with Nike and Serena Williams teamed up again with the sportswear giant for his spring Off-White ready-to-wear show. This time, he turned his attention to track and field, a theme that ran through his seasonal statement, from the racing bibs sent out as invitations to the stadium-themed set and the models themselves. The designer tapped eight female star athletes to walk in his show at the Garage Amelot in Paris.
Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner opened the show in crisp white shirts and short skirts. Kaia Gerber was close behind, in a shirtdress with a tank top pieced together from Nike socks. With their metronomic clips, the models easily outpaced the athletes, overtaking some as they wound their way around the track, while a jumbotron flashed their names and countries of origin.
Some of the sports stars blended in effortlessly. Vashti Cunningham, a U.S. high jumper and the daughter of former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham, flexed her 6-foot, 1-inch frame in a tiered cream tent dress, paired with white

Guy Laroche RTW Spring 2019

For the most part, Richard René stuck to his palette, black and white, as announced in the show notes. These came in the form of a handwritten note signed by Guy Laroche observing the dark shadows and overly bright lights of a Parisian nightclub in the Eighties, at 6 a.m. Something was scribbled about a broken vase, adding to the mystery and setting imaginations on a spin.
The lineup turned out to be a curious exercise in contrasts. Large, angular patches of black and white were transposed or stuck together in odd and surprising ways. A simple white sleeveless dress had a black sleeve pinned to one side while a suit jacket was black on the left and white on the right. There was an impeccably tailored trenchcoat, all white — no wait, it was entirely black in the back. And so it went, startling at times, but also prompting gasps of wonderment at one point.
Heading into dressier territory, René continues to experiment as he seeks the right register for a brand that has befuddled a succession of designers in recent years. Recognizing the challenge, he sent down one piece with a message on the back: “Work in progress.”

Koché RTW Spring 2019

At a time when the United Nations is meeting in New York, discord between nations has rarely appeared so high. Christelle Kocher has other ideas.
Her spring collection was an ode to unity, under the guise of a celebration of women worldwide. That could be a soignée Parisienne, strutting down Avenue Montaigne in a fuchsia blazer, or a young girl in Indonesia going out with friends in a sequined top and matching headscarf, paired with pleated track pants.
“It’s an homage to diversity, a rallying call in which fashion can be a good vector of unification,” Kocher said backstage after the show, held at the French Communist Party headquarters in Paris, a saucer-shaped building designed by Oscar Niemeyer in the Sixties.
Kocher has always connected with a more nuanced vision of Paris than most people who live here experience — the result of shuttling between her job as artistic director of Maison Lemarié, part of Chanel’s stable of specialty ateliers, and her own studio in the multiethnic neighborhood of Belleville in the northeast of Paris.
This season, she broadened that vision to places she has visited, and those she dreams of discovering. A black bodysuit was embroidered with silver sequins in geometric motifs inspired

Alexis Mabille RTW Spring 2019

Alexis Mabille ventured into new territory this season — tiptoed, rather — offering a few pieces in black.
“I usually work with midnight blue, but this time I felt like adding black — but always with bold colors,” he was quick to note. The black clothing served as an accent to the collection, he suggested, pointing to a few items tucked in front of a ground-sweeping dress in bright yellow.
One of the rare black pieces was an off-the-shoulder shirtdress, cinched at the waist, in an airy satin organza, its puffed out sleeves an elegant nod to his couture roots.
It is becoming a tradition for Mabille to present his ready-to-wear collection in an intimate, by-appointment setting — part of his project of refocusing the collections around high-end daywear while pre-collections move further into dressier, evening territory.
Ever playful, Mabille tooled around with materials, making two vastly different dresses using the same pattern. Here was a light, airy day dress in striped blue cotton poplin; suddenly, in a silky satin in midnight blue with back lace trim, it took on a sultry tone for evening. There were quite a few of these silky, lacy numbers, peeking out from the more regal, sculptured pieces.

Winonah RTW Spring 2019

Like many designers and brands this season, Winonah de Jong gave in to her wanderlust, and took a trip — a safari to be precise. She sent out a glamorous — and travel-friendly — collection that was full of easy, classic pieces including cotton blouses, jumpsuits and safari jackets. De Jong put her personal spin on the trench, slipping a belt on the inside so that the coat could be cinched and still remain drapey at the front. A cinnamon cotton safari suit came with an elastic nipped waist and a midi skirt, while a jumpsuit in a similar shade was belted at the waist.
A camouflage print crept over long and languid trousers, a jumpsuit and a skinny minidress with long sleeves and built-up shoulders — a Winonah signature. Other summer-ready looks included a pink cotton dress with ruffle sleeves that gathered at the elbow, and a similar style done in white with embroidered black animal shapes hand-drawn by de Jong. Those black-on-white, naif drawings were a highlight of the collection, with a menagerie of African beasts striding across pieces including a ruffle-front skirt, high-waist trousers and a blouse with puff sleeves.

Herno RTW Spring 2019

Color is the news at Herno, said Claudio Marenzi, chief executive officer of the Italian outerwear company. A range of reds, from crimson to burgundy; plus fuchsia, periwinkle and kiwi green added a vibrant edge to big parkas and capes.
As usual, Herno invested in research and materials, with a new waterproof parka made in cotton with a polyurethane coating. Inside, rainbow-striped, thermo-taped seams completed the look. A drawstring with gold metal details added a feminine touch to the functional garment. An oversize bomber was updated in a new nylon sailcloth that reversed to a taffeta voile. A number of light down vests presented an intriguing watercolor pattern of people silhouetted on a white background.
Marenzi was also upbeat about the performance of the new Herno flagship opened in mid-August and officially unveiled with an event during Milan Fashion Week. “With a space on Via Montenapoleone that is five times our former unit in Via Sant’Andrea, there is a lot more traffic and visibility,” he said. A new flagship will open in Paris on rue Saint-Honoré in October, he added.

Act N°1 RTW Spring 2019

According to the show notes, Act N°1, making its debut at Milan Fashion Week, the brand wanted to raise awareness of the child marriage issue affecting Georgia, the native country of Galib Gassanoff, who designs the brand with Luca Lin. The mission was absolutely noble yet it was difficult to understand how they translated their condemnation into the clothes.
The designers used tulle and several fabrics inspired by wedding dresses, and street versions of white wedding gowns were presented on the catwalk. However, the collection was more about manipulated silk slipdresses and wrap tulle styles featuring broken chains, inserts and draping details, distressed denim pants and shirts crafted in bizarre silhouettes. The grungy collection was more suitable for rebellious city girls, rather than for taking a stand on social issues.

Moncler Genius RTW Spring 2019

It was movie night in Milan, with Moncler Genius screening a series of films to showcase a second round of collections from its guest designers and brands on Wednesday night, including Simone Rocha, Craig Green and Noir.
The short videos were projected onto screens or walls in the stylishly rough industrial space across from Fondazione Prada — and the mood was arty and fun. Rocha’s film featured a cast of models, hats wrapped in veils, wearing her techno-Victorian designs and frolicking in the grass or tilling the soil wearing her flower-embellished dresses and apron styles.
The video had a “Picnic at Hanging Rock” feel and was directed by Tyler Mitchell. Rocha said during the event that she wanted the video to have a “dystopian” feel and to show the two different sides to the collection, which featured natural and man-made fabrics such as lightweight nylon, cotton poplin, vinyl and plastic.
“I also wanted to show the models at work and at play, tending and pruning the garden on one screen, and having fun on the other,” Rocha said during the cocktail party in the courtyard of the venue.
Green brought his childlike tent-cum-kite constructions, which appeared in his fall 2018 runway show earlier this

Annakiki RTW Spring 2019

Annakiki may not be a household name, but Chinese designer Anna Yang clearly has the ear of the creative set.
Having dressed Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy in a metallic ruffled dress for the Wearable Art Gala earlier this year, Yang has found another fan in British singer Ebony Bones, who attended the label’s spring show in Milan.
“It’s really nice to support female designers, and I think it’s intriguing that she’s done so well in Europe and she’s not European. It’s definitely a juxtaposition of different cultures: East meets West, and very fun as well,” said Bones, who wore Annakiki on the cover of her critically acclaimed recent album “Nephilim.”
The inspiration flows both ways. Yang’s spring collection, titled “Fashion Glitch,” channeled her love of electronic music with club-kid gear in shiny fabrics and fluo shades.
This was fashion for the Instagram age: think an acid green liquid-effect biker jacket with ruffled mariachi sleeves, or a holographic vinyl windbreaker and matching Bermuda shorts. The designer used studs and crystal beads to bedazzle everything from cut-off denim shorts to cropped jackets and roomy coats.
The Vegas vibe extended to an oversized black suit with rows of rhinestones in lieu of pinstripes. It made for an irreverent

Huishan Zhang RTW Spring 2019

Huishan Zhang’s brand of refined femininity has always given a nod to bygone eras or paid homage to stylized movies by auteurs. His sense of romance imbues a sense of dreaminess even when interpreting its darker tones. This season, Zhang looked to the future and took the Reuleaux triangle as his starting point.
“They used this triangular form for space travel a lot and the colors draw from the light that’s coming through,” the designer said.
The Reuleaux triangle is formed when three circles intersect and the shape was seen throughout the collection as cutouts on the backs of dresses, delicately pleated on the neckline, and quilted into feathered shift dresses.
“The silhouette is very Nineties and minimal but we injected it with really exciting colors,” he explained.
The collection opened with a series of fresh pastels in mint, yellow and periwinkle separates overlaid with tulle, followed by darker navy and black suits in satin and hand-embellished with pearl detailing. Zhang closed the show with a series of blush-toned satin gowns featuring exaggerated peplums and fluid ruffles that cascaded down the body.
Several of the pieces were cut on one piece of fabric. Zhang and his atelier in China draped one piece of square fabric

London Fashion Week Spring 2019: The Trends

London’s designers were in an extravagant mood for spring; Halpern, Matty Bovan and Mary Katrantzou were among those who accented their collections with sparkly, high-shine sequins, added crafty fringes on the hems of skirts and accessorized their looks with dramatic tulle veils. There was also a focus on revisiting and reworking classics, such as the Eighties power suit — as seen on Chalayan’s deconstructed take on blazers — and the quintessentially British trench. And speaking of British traditions: designers didn’t lose their sense of humor printing provocative slogans on T-shirts and sweatshirts in true punk fashion. Riccardo Tisci, who made his much-awaited debut at Burberry this season, embellished the brand’s signature trenches with silky scarves while also poking fun at his famous Givenchy Bambi print.

Brooks Brothers RTW Spring 2019

Creative Director Zac Posen delivered a garden party brimming with a youthful take on corporate attire inspired in part by images of Jacqueline de Ribes in the garden.
He introduced a cheeky cherry print, which was cut into a playful pleated skirt and embroidered onto a little T, and undercut the collection with a fresh vintage ease. Pink tweed suiting was enlivened with fluorescent orange specks, while a prim-cut blazer came in a sweet pastel orange. A floral jacquard jacket-and-skirt set harked to the fashion sensibility that could be seen in his namesake secondary line.
The storied brand has been able to draw in younger customers with updates to wardrobe staples that have a modern, easy approach to sophistication. Shirt dressing has been key, and was cut this season with a navy porcelain print and an orange style with a playful wrap belt. No item balanced modish feminine flair with a transitional day-to-evening quality more than a flirty color-blocked dress in blush, ivory and lime.
Posen made sure to offer loyal customers approachable elegance with classic seersucker in driftwood brown, suiting styled with casual striped Ts and stretchy graphic jacquards. For the new professional woman, look no further for a blend of leisure,

House of Holland RTW Spring 2019

Henry Holland vapes. And his favorite flavor is mint — which explains all the minty neon colors and the unexpected accessories he introduced.
“I just thought it’d be interesting to create some cool vaping accessories”, he said when asked about the e-cigs that poked out of body harnesses and neck pouches.
The first look, a bright orange power suit, had Holland’s front-row celebs nodding in approval — or maybe they were just head bopping to the up tempo soundtrack.
“I wanted to capture the increasing pace of life and this collection is about the woman who just got out of the shower and has to get to work, the gym, the office, or wherever,” he said.
While attention-grabbing cord-laced neon sandals were shown, there was not much newness to be seen elsewhere. His usual ripstop nylon sportswear pieces, track pants and parachute parkas made their rounds. Maybe Holland too, was in a rush?

Xiao Li RTW Spring 2019

“I wanted to create a strong holiday feeling with this collection because to be honest, everyone around me had a holiday in August and I’m quite jealous! I missed mine,” the designer Xiao Li told WWD after the show.
For Li’s holiday wardrobe, stripes reigned supreme, as well as delicate ginghams, bold oversized holographic hats and whisper-weight silk pieces embellished with ice blue crystals.
Wide summer stripes in baby blue, pink and yellow opened the show on a series of boxy jackets with ruff detailing and matching skirts, followed by macs paired with tulle socks and white platform sandals, and pullovers worn over hooded swimsuits. Delicate drop-waisted gingham dresses were subverted with belted leather harnesses featuring structured ruffles that sat atop shoulders, while sleeveless iridescent macs were nipped with contrasting belts with exaggerated buckles.
This season, Li developed a fabric inspired by bubble wrap made using silk that was cleverly transformed into full-cut trousers, delicate fishermen’s vests teamed with flouncy skirts, and a lustrous tiered hem dress that closed the show.

Yigal Azrouël RTW Spring 2019

Yigal Azrouël calls New York home, but he grew up on the beach and has a lifelong obsession with surfing. When he can, he gets off the grid to surf in Costa Rica, but he surfs locally out on Long Beach, which is where he found inspiration for spring.
There were nods to the beach throughout his textured and effortless pieces. For example, thick nautical rope ties used to gather the neck on gauzy silk dresses, the ribbing of a shell he found ending up as a print on a knit pant and tunic, a seersucker fabric was treated to give it shape and new proportion creating a billowing trenchcoat, a coated cotton blue and white shirtdress played with the eye as it wasn’t a shirt, but a jacket.
His modern laid-back collection doesn’t have hanger appeal, instead his pieces need to be experienced, and putting them on illuminates his deft way with subtle details like one-sided cutouts just below the arm to expose the body, subtle and not too sexy. It’s these understated details — interestingly placed hardware, mixing of textures and knit gauges — that make his clothing come to life. It makes for a collection that is unique to

Studio 189 RTW Spring 2019

“We are all from the same place,” said designer Abrima Erwiah while previewing her energetic spring collection. “When you buy one of our pieces you immediately activate the supply chain all the way back to the first people, which is the farmers.”
The brand, a collective work between Erwiah and actress Rosario Dawson, has cause to celebrate, having just won the CFDA + Lexus Fashion Initiative for sustainability. The two aim to build a “fairer fashion,” with a brand that brings attention to artisans, women’s empowerment and poverty in West Africa. Sourcing the textiles, an arduous process that involves New York and Ghana, West Africa, takes about six months.
The result was a lineup of vividly colored and patterned frocks for men and women that felt vibrant and energized. The clean silhouettes at times boarded on androgynous with kimono tops, caftans and generous suiting that had movement when they came down the runway.
Rounding out the collection were waist packs and tote bags constructed of dried grass and pineapple leather styled with glass beaded jewelry to complete looks that were bright and cheerful — and have a purpose.

Vaquera RTW Spring 2019

Vaquera’s spring show was like a fun little pop quiz that the whole class already knew all the answers to — no head-scratchers here. Patric DiCaprio, Bryn Taubensee and Claire Sully showed at P.S. 42 Benjamin Altman on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the runway winding through cafeteria tables littered with bubblegum, spilled Coke cans and wadded-up loose leaf paper. The “Harry Potter” theme song set up a procession of high-school stereotypes — jocks, sluts, cheerleaders, goths — that twisted through the Vaquera looking glass so that freaks and geeks ruled the school. Is subversion still subversive when the concept has gone so mainstream?
The prom king wore pumps with a literal sweatsuit, a tux made from gray fleece. The cheerleader looked like she had spent the night at a rager in her bra top and tattered mini dress. Football pads were reimagined as a cute denim harness; your little brother’s sports bedsheets were transformed into a voluminous gown, and those finicky Scantrons became a print on a pair of pants.
A footnote on Vaquera’s shownotes defined the label as “a unisex clothing line that redefines luxury fashion through narrative-based collections.” The story they were telling was clear, though it stands to note

Zero + Maria Cornejo RTW Spring 2019

“It’s all about strong women,” said Maria Cornejo backstage at her spring runway show. Her inspiration was epitomized in the collection by a print reproducing a work by Chilean artist Gracia Barrios, an abstract pattern consisting of sketched faces of extraordinary international female personalities. The motif was printed, for example, on a fresh cotton top worn with a draped skirt crafted from organic denim, as well as on a maxishirt paired with relaxed cropped pants.
In keeping with her quintessentially chic aesthetic, the designer delivered a beautiful collection where an unfussy urban mood was warmed up by Cornejo’s Latin sensibility, expressed particularly in the color palette of earthy, neutral tones juxtaposed with bright shades of coral red and vivid blue.
By choosing an inclusive casting of women of different ages, Cornejo wanted to highlight the timeless spirit of the collection, one designed to transcend seasonal trends and provide longevity and continuity among generations. While the oversized striped suit that opened the show and a sharp-cut denim jacket worn with matching pants looked more rigorous and infused with a certain mannish feel, the frocks and tops with plunging necks and the satin long dresses and revisited pajama sets revealed the very feminine side

Prabal Gurung RTW Spring 2019

A feast for the eyes and an injection of good vibes for the spirit: On Sunday night, Prabal Gurung celebrated the joyful and positive side of fashion with a runway show that was pure energy.
Colorblocking, bold tones, fluid and relaxed silhouettes were the main ingredients of a group of flamboyant outfits opening the show. Joan Smalls sported a yellow ribbed bodysuit tucked into a transparent neon green skirt trimmed in fuchsia satin; Gigi Hadid wore a cropped white T-shirt paired with a draped skirt in a bright color combination. Bella Hadid took the catwalk in a pair of pink cargo pants and a triangle bikini top and sporty colorful windbreaker. The athletic attitude also informed the feminine frocks and skirts enriched with drawstring details and elastic waistbands, while an extravagant touch was introduced via the traffic-stopping feathers embroidered on cropped denim pants and a covetable black T-shirt dress. Artisanal craftsmanship is an iconic element of Gurung’s design aesthetic. This season it was beautifully shown on beaded and sequined frocks revealing degradé effects and sarong skirts trimmed with tiny, precious fringe.
Unveiling men’s wear for the first time, the designer created a charming dialogue between the two lineups, which looked totally coherent.
