Mistergentleman Men’s Fall 2019

Name: Mistergentleman
Main message: Always one of the bright spots during Tokyo Fashion Week, Takeshi Osumi and Yuichi Yoshii’s men’s brand mixed easy tailoring with streetwear, outdoor and women’s wear influences for fall. Models walked the grass-like carpeted runway in retro, relaxed snakeskin print suits paired with satin double-breasted shirts and neckerchiefs, or velvet pants with roomy overcoats. The more casual looks included dad jeans, hooded sweatshirts and duck canvas jackets, all in neutral shades of gray, brown, khaki and black, interspersed with pops of purple, green and orange.
Osumi and Yoshii played with proportions, shrinking trenches and puffer jackets into crop tops and styling them over wool coats and loose sweaters. Moto, letterman and toggle jackets were chopped up into bib-like pieces and layered over outerwear, while a series of coats and jackets were cut from two contrasting fabrics: olive corduroy and gray wool flannel, or plush fleece with the same snake print from earlier pieces. Subtle feminine touches came in the form of silk scarves worn as belts over coats, and a handful of equestrian print jackets and shifts. The brand also debuted its latest collaboration products, including quilted bags made with Outdoor Products and a black satin bomber designed

The Reracs RTW and Men’s Fall 2019

Name: The Reracs
Main message: With her inaugural show during Tokyo Fashion Week, Naomi Kurahashi displayed just how to present classic pieces on a runway without boring the audience: make sure to have plenty of variety, use beautiful textiles, keep the pace quick, and employ inventive styling choices. The brand lived up to its profile, which says that it’s “backed by quality and practicality,” but proved that it has so much more to offer.
The collection was made up of variations on a pretty basic theme: straight-legged or relaxed, jogger-style trousers paired with V-neck sweaters or just about any kind of outerwear imaginable, all turned out in neutral tones of gray, black, navy, white and beige. But the superior construction and luxurious textiles elevated the collection beyond simple classics, with suiting material showing a drape resembling that of matte jersey, and a black pleather poncho turning more heads than it would have if it had been made from animal skin. The fabrics were so beautiful on their own that there was no need for flashy prints, but occasional flashes of Fair Isle, argyle or checked patterns kept things interesting.
The result: Kurahashi has been designing The Reracs for nearly a decade, but proved

Keisukeyoshida RTW Fall 2019

Name: Keisukeyoshida
Main message: What do you get when you mix sharp tailoring and a wide range of textures with subtle bondage influences? Keisuke Yoshida’s latest offering, which was shown on a slick red runway with stairs in the center and models all with bandaged heads. A short suit with an oversize, double-breasted jacket was worn over pleather leggings punctuated with cutouts and buckles, while slinky dresses in headline printed mesh or lamé jersey were gathered all over for a balance of sexy and conservative.
There were structural elements as well, with tails of coats clipped to the backs of collars to create a vague origami effect, and sleeves that were either ballooned and extra long or topped with boned shoulder plates rivaling a football player’s padding. High-wasted pants with rows of rope fastened with toggles were paired with satin blouses trimmed in exaggerated Western-inspired yokes.
The result: Yoshida’s collection was just fantastical enough to find itself at home on the streets of Tokyo, without taking itself too seriously.

Malamute RTW Fall 2019

Name: Malamute
Main message: For her second outing during Tokyo Fashion Week, Mari Odaka took inspiration from Tokyo’s changing landscape ahead of the 2020 Olympics, as well as from two films: Andrew Niccol’s 1997 “Gattaca” and Jim Jarmusch’s 2013 “Only Lovers Left Alive.”
Odaka created her own surreal landscape on the runway with large squares of gold Mylar illuminated by fluorescent tube lights, accompanied by a soundtrack of jarring noise. She deftly mixed contrasting textures, showing pleated chiffon trousers together with an unevenly knit scarf that resembled static on a TV, but in red and navy. A shimmering, open knit long skirt resembling a spider web glistening in the morning sun was paired with a cold shoulder black sweater with spots of ivory fringe. There were also pantsuits with relaxed, slit-ankle trousers in black on black floral brocade or pale gray suiting trimmed with tiny ruffles. An oversize grandpa sweater worn as a minidress and a red and black tracksuit with chevron detailing lent a retro vibe.
The result: The designer proved her fledgling brand to be one to watch with a strong collection of relaxed yet elegant pieces in interesting textures.

Tory Sport RTW Fall 2019

“Everything’s wickable, breathable…we spent four years developing fabrics,” Tory Burch explained during a walk-through of her latest collection for her high-performance sportswear brand, Tory Sport. Burch added that through her recent collaboration with Soul Cycle (a seven-piece capsule which launched on March 6) she was most excited about hearing feedback from real athletes — from full marathon runners to yogis — who have been surprised and highly impressed by its functionality. A fall favorite (and best-selling) call out included a chevron printed legging and matching bra in oatmeal brown (which sits in the collection under Burch’s new neutral program). Said leggings and bras could be piled under her continually wonderful knits or great new outerwear (a puffed, sleeping bag coat or half-quilted, half-sherpa fleece jacket).
For fall, Burch infused a study of contrasts throughout: watercolor-inspired tie dye versus clean, bright color blocking (in red, purple, navy, royal blue) and chevron graphics when it came to palette and prints, or lightweight nylon ripstop running jackets versus chunky, puffed down coats when it came to outerwear. Within the golf and tennis categories, a new white hybrid skort with a ruffled side perfectly depicted the brand’s overall contrasting play on sporty femininity.

Maticevski RTW Fall 2019

Toni Maticevski upped the focus on tech fabrics, “And seeing how they translate into things that are wearable.”
The attitude stayed dressy, though. Gathered into architectural folds, a gold and silver foil jersey used on gowns was surprisingly light and soft, with foil effects also surfacing on a black wool-cashmere coat. A capsule of black-and-white chiffon evening pieces peppered with high-tech flocking in animal-meets-floral motifs were striking.
The designer broke the mood with a romantic section of dresses, including a long ivory tulle gown with a pleated top and short pale pink skirt embroidered in organic strips of metallics and sequins which lent an artisanal charm.
The pièce de résistance in the handiwork intensive collection was a floor-sweeping pastel gown covered in circular tea-stained ruffles.

One of the key themes from the Black line was transparency, with signature gabardine coats flipped inside out to put their inner workings on display, the seams exposed, as well as reversible pieces, with a split-personality coat with beige linen on one side, black silk on the other.
A uniform storyline included coats mixing houndstooth with a monochrome Y’s tartan, lovely black blazers with cutouts of jewel-tone motifs lifted from Persian carpets used to evoke medals, and a series of pinstripe coats with the stripes bleached into the fabric, as well as bleached color-blocking effects.
The Pink line offered a capsule of textured knits, including a seamless cashmere sweater; feminized spins on men’s shirting fabrics, applying details like lace and ruffles to gingham and striped styles, as well as a capsule of sweatshirts playing on the band T-shirt graphics used for Prince and the Revolution’s Purple Rain Tour in the mid-Eighties.

Galvan RTW Fall 2019

“It’s kind of funny when you think about seasons anymore because what’s winter for someone is summer for another,” described Galvan’s Katherine Holmgren. ”There’s always so much travel in-between different locations and climates and temperatures.” Having an international customer who shops in varying climates, the team from Galvan looked to their creative director, Sola Harrison’s, recent trip to Bali to infuse a wintery jungle theme into their fall lineup. Lush green leafy hues ran throughout — simply sophisticated in floor-length slips or more daring in an emerald green sequined blazer with fringed details. Acid green also made an appearance in scuba-like materials, like a bustier minidress, mixing the surfer, beachy vibes and jungle landscapes of Ubud and Uluwatu.
“We’re always trying to make eveningwear — glamorous, yes — but with a dash of fun and youth…and a cool factor that’s often missing,” Holmgren described. The brand continues to do so — fall meant updated sequined — as well as velvet devore-offerings (in a great leafy print). A special edition hand-placed tiger printed velvet devoré shirtdress and slinky “Bali” scarf printed — found during Harrison’s travels — gowns made for great additions to round out the collection of multiple-climate appropriate attire.

Antonio Berardi RTW Fall 2019

While he showcased his latest fall collection to buyers according to the traditional schedule, Antonio Berardi skipped any classic shows or presentations during fashion week this season. His beautiful collection was actually revealed to journalists with one-on-one appointments in his Milan showroom and via a range of images portraying fashion icon Catherine Baba.
“The idea that the collection starts in my world is given over to someone else, who makes it fit in her world, and the eventually of it becoming part of someone else’s universe on a totally different level is perhaps the most exciting thing of all,” Berardi said on Baba’s interpretation of her clothes.
Her bold personality actually exalted the already distinctive spirit of the collection — which, designed to complement the pre-fall range, was more focused on cocktail and evening attire.
Continuing to offer his own take on his inspiration from the year 1968 — already the theme of pre-fall — Berardi played with the sharp and the precise mixed with the soft and bohemian. A white minidress with scalloped edges and flared sleeves exuded the same feminine allure as another short dress, worked in overblown checks, showing exaggerated ruffles.

Yves Salomon RTW Fall 2019

A Seventies-style faun-colored intarsia coat figured among the rich range of shearlings, as the brand continues to steer the focus away from fur, also mixing textures on coats, contrasting shaved and fluffy surfaces and playing with prints, including a leopard motif, to broaden the category’s appeal.
Brought in to design the second edition of the brand’s Pieces capsule of six upcycled furs was André Walker who got creative with mink scraps. Items included a black mink jumpsuit masquerading as corduroy, a cream shirt in sheared mink, and a showstopper fringed sheared-mink intarsia dress with a face print based on one of Walker’s artworks. Sporting labels signed by Walker, the pieces will be produced in limited-edition series.

Karim Adduchi RTW Fall 2019

Amsterdam-based Moroccan designer Karim Adduchi’s mission in Paris was to present a line of more commercial ready-to-wear looks, ranging from jacquard coats in a woodland print to a tailored blazer with details including 3-D buttons with a design inspired by berbère culture and belt loops at the waist.
But his couture pieces grabbed all the attention, especially the twists on traditional Moroccan garb, like a top and skirt honed from finishings sourced from every city that the designer has visited in his homeland, including colored tassels in earthy hues that formed the skirt.
Also drawing the eye was a red silk scarf dress and a long gown with a split made from an artisanal striped wool with raw seams.

Capucci RTW Fall 2019

Having cycled through a number of formats and creative directors in the last few years, Capucci is banking on an injection of youth to restore the brand to the glory days of its founder, Roberto Capucci.
The label’s owner, businesswoman and art patron, Paola Santarelli, has appointed her daughter, Vittoria Bonifati, as artistic coordinator, with Valeria Giampietro as art director. They, in turn, have drafted Luisa Orsini and Antonine Peduzzi, the “It” girls behind the handbag label TL-180, to refresh the brand.
Staging a presentation in Paris for the first time, Capucci unveiled a capsule collection based on the more wearable portions of its archive. The couturier, now 88, has been a friend of the Santarellis for decades.
“He was very close with my grandmother and my mother. My mom’s wedding dress was designed by him, and also my grandmother had a lot of clothes designed by him, so I’ve known him for quite a bit, and he comes still to the atelier. He has some clients and makes haute couture,” Bonifati said.
A tunic top and cropped flared pants featured subtle black-and-white Op Art stripes that were stitched together from dozens of fine strips of fabric. A collarless coat with a scalloped edge

Hillier Bartley RTW Fall 2019

Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley cast their eyes to the Eighties, and to the pop colors and patterns of Kansai Yamamoto. Their collection was wild, full of color and languid proportions in the form of a check Zoot suit, its jacket slashed open at the front, and a camel pinstripe suit with a short jacket and roomy, tracksuit-style trousers. Blouses and dresses were draped, folded, knotted or tied, as in a silk raspberry dress with statement sleeves and piratical flair, and a black tuxedo jacket with a cascade of jewel-toned, fringed silk spilling from the back. The collection had its New Romantic moments, too, in the form of a white poet’s blouse with wide ruffles around the neck and wrists, and cotton striped shirts with layered sleeves and long flowing tails. These clothes, with their dramatic proportions and look-at-me colors, aren’t for everyone: Only the cool kids need apply.

A.F. Vandevorst RTW Fall 2019

For fall, An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx had a country girl in mind — low profile but feminine, used to roaming the outdoors. Not one to put up with vestimentary restrictions. So they cut open the sleeves of her suit coat, lining them with zippers in case she wanted to close them back again. Shirt sleeves, too, were opened in this way, but with buttons. There was no planned color scheme — fabrics were chosen for their qualities, and then crafted into garments, making it more spontaneous and perhaps less intellectual, explained Vandevorst. Loose, tan trousers had a sporty, orange ribbon running up the leg while a silky purple shirt had piping details on the cuff, western style  and one shoulder. Also in the lineup, season staples: a long, pleated skirt and smart outerwear, including trenchcoats.
Reflecting the label’s new emphasis on accessories, the showroom presentation was dominated by boots, sneakers and handbags galore — all shapes and sizes. Bags were mostly square-shaped, stamped with the label’s signature cross. Footwear options included a chunky-heeled ankle boot with zebra stripes on the front and lizard skin on the back — suitable, no doubt, for that country girl hitting the city streets.

Joseph RTW Fall 2019

The message would have to come from the garments; due to a scheduling conflict, Susana Clayton wasn’t in Paris to present her debut collection for Joseph.
They spoke for themselves. Clayton had clearly done her homework and crafted a sturdy lineup that relayed the label’s particular breed of chic, British cool. A laser focus on trousers turned up an array of surefire staples — flattering waists, luxurious fabrics, slightly flared. Knitwear was chunky and oversize, yet sleek, including a handsome cape-shawl topped with a turtleneck, as well as the widest scarf ever — with yarn fringes. Moving down the rack, each piece, it seemed, called for individual consideration — the simplicity conveyed by a new, streamlined approach. Tailoring was sharp, but also purified, and Clayton skimmed the collars off of some pieces, including the coats. Leather work was another strong point, and the collection included well-cut burgundy trousers and a tunic dress. Also striking was a black, goat hair coat.
This was a strong debut, and a well-managed segue from the previous designer, Louise Trotter, who has moved to Lacoste. Relaying the label’s past strength — trousers! — Clayton also managed to spin it forward nicely.

Esteban Cortázar RTW Fall 2019

For his fall lineup, Esteban Cortázar had different types of women in mind. He doesn’t like it when people ask who his client is — an exercise he likens to putting someone in a box.
“I don’t just appeal to one kind of girl,” he said, noting the same garment draws different personalities — and ways of wearing it.
That point he drove home with a diverse collection, toggling between sensual elegance and a funky cool, all of it emphatic, which is one of the reasons it worked. 
Considering “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” — influence for sharp and simple lines with graceful silhouettes — he took Holly Golightly for a spin in the Caribbean. This brought added flourish — a bit more skin and lots more color, mostly solids —  yellows and pinks — but also a crazy print with religious motifs and a wild cat.
One of his muses was a friend, the stylist Michelle Elie, who modeled the looks.
“She’s not afraid of piling it up, being more eccentric, playing with silhouettes, with proportions,” he said, pointing to a photo of her with layers that included six bucket hats in bright colors, hot pink gloves over a sheer, pink sleeve, and knit leggings under a

Noir Kei Ninomiya RTW Fall 2019

Life bubbled under the all-black exterior of Kei Ninomiya’s silhouettes. The designer, who learned his craft at Comme des Garçons, themed his collection around roses, which were sported by models on blood-red headpieces created by artist Makoto Azuma, infusing the silhouettes with an organic feel.
The first looks, rigid structures made of ruched taffeta taking over the models’ bodies, hinted at alveoli, while an overskirt with dangling black taffeta threads, worn over a nude tulle skirt, looked like spider’s legs.
Further along, classic pieces like leather biker jackets morphed into different creatures entirely: on one look, a jacket was progressively weaved in to what looked like a round wicker cage, a gleaming leather contraption encasing the entire lower part of the model’s body. The same structure was thrillingly applied to the top of a dress, cradling the model’s torso up to her neck.
There was a strong sense of protection: organza tops had thick wraparound corsets bunching up the waist, while some silhouettes sported leather harnesses with what looked like blown-up tubes coming out to form full skirts. The silhouettes got bigger as the collection progressed, leaving the all-black look for touches of flesh pink and bruised purple: models’ heads peeped out from

Kwaidan Editions RTW Fall 2019

Alienation is the common thread that runs through Léa Dickely and Hung La’s collections with their acerbic, uncompromising esthetic. Staging their first runway presentation this season in a cavernous garage space, they played on the convention of dressing to blend in — inspired by manuals offering advice for Stasi agents on how to go incognito — spiked with jarring moments of look-at-me bravado.
Beige and brown tailoring provided the uniform backdrop in the form of voluminous trench coats, tailored jackets, wide flared pants and baggy masculine shirting with pointy Seventies collars, the concept of status knocked home by styling the looks with Louboutin stilettos.
Dickely and La played on the notion of what is real and what is fake, using leather and rubber interchangeably and challenging the observer to identify which is which on coats, pants and dresses.
Their nonconformism emerged through violent pops of color — bright red, vivid yellow — the latter worked for example as a zebra print or a psychedelic motif on a fitted shirt that once again harked back to the Seventies, an era of predilection for the designers.

Leonard Paris RTW Fall 2019

Heritage can be stifling. How far can Leonard’s signature printed silk motifs actually go? Since her nomination as creative director of the house in March 2016, Christine Phung has been striving to take the brand’s identity to new heights. Sometimes her modern take works; at others it feels constrained.
The fall 2019 collection was the latter. Themed around a plane trip to Jaipur, India, the show was accessed thanks to boarding passes. Silk eye masks were laid out on seats, while on the runway models rolled Tumi suitcases, held printed neck pillows and one even wore a safety jacket. These were fun gimmicks, but they couldn’t distract from the busy prints that were splashed over total looks: in dominant tones of pink, orange, blue and purple, long silk dresses, fluid jackets, shirts, short kimonos and caftans were covered in garish orchid motifs. Most silhouettes were barely more than holiday dresses for heiresses; others looked like stewardesses from a particularly flashy airline company.
Gold lamé touches on the three black silhouettes were more convincing, taking the prints straight to evening wear. Phung played with nuances: printed silk details were ingeniously placed around wrists and belt linings on wool coats and pinstriped suits, while

Off-White RTW Fall 2019

Virgil Abloh had a tongue-in-cheek message for those who think his Off-White brand is a license to print money: the invitation for his fall show was a clear plastic envelope filled with fake bills. Some included the soon-to-be-scrapped 500-euro note.
Though the streetwear label slipped from the number-one spot on global fashion search platform Lyst’s latest quarterly index of fashion’s most desirable brands and products — to a still-impressive number two behind Gucci — its “if you make it, they will buy it” aura appears intact.
In fact, Abloh seems so confident in the brand’s momentum that he now barely includes its signature markers — ironic quotation marks, diagonal stripes and industrial-themed belts — in his runway shows. Instead, he uses the stage as a platform to expound on his brand values.
“There’s an empowered woman, a young woman, that I’m enjoying not treating as a passing trend,” he said in a preview. After collaborating with Nike last season on a track-and-field-themed show, this time he delved into motor racing, inspired by the Rockford Speedway, a Nascar race track near his home town of Rockford, Ill.
“I’m not into sport, because we’ve kind of exhausted that idea, but I’m into male-dominated niche culture,” he

Faith Connexion RTW Fall 2019

For the brand’s first runway presentation and his first full collection as creative director, Nikola Vasari succeeded in bringing together with casual ease streetwear influences with grunge and glam references inspired by music icons such as Courtney Love, Grace Jones and Lou Reed.
The lineup was a further step in a more focused direction for the edgy label, a balance of tailoring, flou and streetwear with an edge. There was some standout outerwear — a ruched jacket in green jacquard that Vasari described as a “party bomber” was among the most striking pieces.
Animal-print motifs were key to the glam vernacular, as on a zebra-print minidress in a holographic metallic fabric or bright prints in purple, red and black on some of the later flamboyant looks, while grunge references were seen in the form of distressed knitwear or the embroidered chains that adorned several designs.
Elsewhere, a hand-painted and fur-trimmed parka was pure Faith Connexion. Other outsized outerwear pieces were paired with racy looks, as in a dress made up of strips of lace like bandages across the body.
Dominated by a largely monochrome palette, the collection offered further pops of color in the form of a green sequined shift dress or the multicolored

A. Teodoro RTW Fall 2019

Albino Teodoro’s fall mood board had heraldic drawings from a Thirties linotype, the late designers Cristóbal Balenciaga and Gianfranco Ferré, and Fifties magazine covers designed by Roman Cieślewicz.
The hodgepodge of references yielded a charming collection that played around uniforms with a feminine touch, mostly pantsuits and coats. A double-breasted cashmere topper with structured shoulders and a column-like silhouette featured stitched piping and engraved metallic buttons with a military feel. Sleek suits were crafted from wool crepe in bright tones, such as magenta and aquamarine.
“There’s always a feminine touch I want to inject,” Teodoro said. To wit: a billowing collar added softness to a severe top made of black Vatican canvas, and ruffled sleeves added a dash of glamour to an elongated blazer.
For evening, the heraldic wallpaper prints appeared on a shirtdress and slouchy overcoat combo, which looked chic.

Fay RTW Fall 2019

Presented under neon cloud shapes, Arthur Arbesser’s second collection for Fay, the Italian outerwear specialist owned by Tod’s group, was based around the idea of a timeless wardrobe. “I want to make sure it’s a brand that both my father and my nephew would want to wear,” explained the 36-year-old, who also designs for his own brand.
Looks from this coed collection were playfully layered. On women’s silhouettes, short leather gilets in rich bordeaux and cream were worn over coats in contrasting hues, transforming a classic wool peacoat into a statement piece. “The gilet becomes almost like an accessory,” Arbesser said. “There is this idea that you can easily spice up an item, while at the same time keeping it classic and functional.”
The collection felt current, which is partly due to its theme: Arbesser took inspiration from the symbol of the cloud in both the meteorological and digital sense, looking at our modern obsession with data storage. The designer swapped nylon for caramel leather on the brand’s signature “4 Ganci” jacket, recognizable thanks to its four hook fastenings, and added a hood, making it instantly more relaxed. Another version in pristine white vinyl looked fresh and modern.

Agnona RTW Fall 2019

This collection, in 50 shades of neutrals, might just win the prize for most comforting collection of Milan Fashion Week. Simon Holloway, Agnona’s artistic director, may have been going for grunge, but what he served up was so much better.
There were textured coats, some long and lean, others in bathrobe styles, wide-leg trouser suits with elongated jackets in chocolate, cream, taupe or olive, and turtlenecks roomy enough to accommodate two small people.
Ribbed scarves skimmed the floor, opaque knitwear fluttered and models wore beanies. Even the footwear was a comfort, cream combat boots or slip-on sandals and socks in stone, gray or mud.
Holloway said he was thinking about the moment he left university in the early Nineties, and that eye-opening grunge aesthetic, “but I wanted to do it in a super-elevated way.”
He certainly didn’t disappoint, enveloping his models in double-face cashmere, tweed jersey, flannel, leather and quilting right down to the shirts and underpinnings — manna for the Agnona customer who’ll want to wrap themselves up, kick back and hum a few strains of “Come as You Are.”

Max Mara Atelier Fall 2019

The coat, of course, is the first thing coming to people’s minds when they think about Max Mara. The brand’s iconic piece was celebrated with the Max Mara Atelier fall collection, 14 outerwear shapes injected with impeccable elegance.
Realized with couture-like constructions and luxurious materials, the collection took inspiration from the neo-expressionist artworks of Mimmo Paladino. Gold linings and details were hidden inside the pieces for an extra touch of exclusivity.
Looks telegraphed a discreet femininity influenced by a mannish sensibility, worked in a restrained color palette of black, gray-beige, rust, blue and orange. Styles included a covetable double-breasted model showing pleats on the side creating a charming 3D volume, a “foulard” design to softly wrap around the body, as well as a trench-like number cut slimmer through the bodice and then showing a slightly flared silhouette enhanced by an obi belt.
A urban attitude was introduced via a zippered cashmere bomber, the front crafted from mink fur, while the mohair cardigan-coat oozed luxurious ease.

A Ridiculous Guide To Hate-Watching The 2019 Oscars

From the seemingly never-ending hosting saga to Timothée Chalamet’s snub to the “Green Book” controversies (plural), the 2019 Oscars are a mess this year. But you can still have fun hate-watching along with the rest of America.

Moschino RTW Fall 2019

Everyone was a winner at Moschino Thursday night when creative director Jeremy Scott created his own “Price Is Right”-style game show as a backdrop for his fall collection, complete with shiny new car, washer-dryer, bedroom set, refrigerator and more.
“It’s hard not to be a fan of game shows growing up in America,” Scott said backstage. “You see glamorous girls in glamorous outfits and it’s all about the luck of chance. It’s a very American idea that you can turn your life around, go from rags to riches with that lottery ticket or by selling that screenplay. There is something about it that captures the imagination.”
Students of Scott may remember that this is not the pop provocateur’s first entrance into game-show territory. In 2001, “Wheel of Fortune” (the real one on TV) invited Scott to make over Vanna White, back when he was still an up-and-comer on the L.A. scene and not atop a European luxury brand. For five shows, she wore Scott-designed outfits while turning the tiles, including a dress printed with dollar bills bearing the designer’s face. WWD documented the whole thing, giving him his first cover.
Storyteller Scott returned to the well on Thursday, and he went all-in this

Au Jour Le Jour RTW Fall 2019

Setting aside the ironic, playful graphics, which characterized their early efforts, Diego Marquez and Mirko Fontana embraced a more urban, glamorous aesthetic.
“The irony is still there but is expressed in a different way,” said Marquez, referring in particular to the intentionally wrong proportions characterizing some of the pieces. For example, a pair of jeans showed an exaggerated high waist and a T-shirt had oversize, boxy shoulders.
A playful touch was introduced via fox fur coats worked in neon colors, also appearing on the threads giving an eye-catching touch to cable knit sweaters and minidresses, while a range of frocks, which seemed designed for young disco queens, featured precious crystal embroideries and cascades of degrade sequins.
Even if the designers’ intention to step out of their comfort zone is definitely remarkable, this collection, which missed a certain cohesiveness and probably the so-called X factor, demonstrated that Au Jour Le Jour still needs to find clear aesthetic codes to fully develop its repositioning strategy.

Emilia Wickstead RTW Fall 2019

Emilia Wickstead immersed herself in “The Godfather” trilogy, enchanted by the quintessentially Southern Italian charm and refinement that defined Francis Ford Coppola’s film series.
For her latest fall presentation, she took over the Art Deco restaurant Le Caprice, hosting an intimate salon-style show and transporting her guests back to this nostalgic universe, complete with classic Italian music, head scarves, pearls and lavish fabrics galore.
The character of Mary Corleone — played by Sofia Coppola in the film — and her signature berets were at the center of the story line dreamed up by Wickstead.
The designer also drew from the men’s wear codes on-screen, delivering tailored jumpsuits and mannish coats in a traditional palette of chocolate brown, or draping leather over a suit — a reference to the movies’ distinct gangster vibe and abundance of leather jackets.
Wickstead ensured that she translated this old-school charm to her own universe of modern femininity. Cue androgynous wool tweeds done in midi dresses with voluminous long sleeves, pleated A-line dresses featuring wallpaper prints that could have easily been taken out of one of the lavish rooms on the movie set and romantic bouclé tweed suits accessorized with pearl-embellished headscarves, like the ones worn by Corleone.
For the finalé, Wickstead

Burberry RTW Fall 2019

With a debut collection that’s just hitting the shop floor, Riccardo Tisci is still under the microscope at Burberry, and he’s had to work rapidly — and publicly. There are shareholders to please and stores to fill, 442 worldwide, plus franchises and wholesale outlets, and a drumbeat of monthly T-shirt, hoodie and accessories drops sold via Instagram. The company, which has a market capitalization of 8 billion pounds on the London Stock Exchange, is also in transition mode under new chief executive officer Marco Gobbetti, with big plans for growth.
Tisci took a step forward for fall, tightening up the show, clarifying his vision and making a return to that classy streetwear for which he’s known. His lineup featured tailored coats with puffers tacked to the back or with big faux furry hoods bursting from the collars. He tore apart rugby shirts and stitched them into a dress, punk-ed up leather baseball jackets with little phrases like “Burberry isn’t good for you” down the woolen sleeve, and gave a shearling a tough edge with slicks of black patent leather.
The designer has never made a secret of his intentions: He wants to dress everybody — mothers and daughters, fathers and sons —

Halpern RTW Fall 2019

Some designers are responding to the dire political mood in the U.K. by darkening their color palettes and toughening up their fabrics.
Michael Halpern is instead delving further into his fantastical world of sequins and all things shiny and over-the-top.
For his fall range — shown in the Deco ballroom of a Mayfair hotel — he referenced Russian illustrator Erté to create striking Twenties-inspired silhouettes and colorful, multilayered prints echoing Erté’s fantastical illustrations.
“There’s nothing rooted in reality here. Why can’t a fish have wings?” said Halpern, pointing to a print featuring leopard patterns mixed with illustrations of fish morphing into birds.
He wanted to flex his muscle beyond his signature sequined creations, applying his fantasy prints on voluminous duchesse satin coats; showcasing his draping skills with a series of more pared-down jersey maxidresses in bright yellow or fuchsia; or playing with a striking gel organza fabric and working it into a draped minidress or a one-shouldered top featuring a long train.
Yet Halpern is not ready to completely let go of sequins just yet. In fact, he thinks he has “barely scratched the surface with what you can do with sequins.”
He sprinkled a healthy dose of sparkly creations here, renewing them by cutting or

Phoebe English Shows Fall 2019 Collection in Exhibition Alongside 30 Marionettes

EXHIBITIONIST: Phoebe English showcased pieces from her fall 2019 women’s wear offering at the Morley Gallery in South London at an exhibition called “Inanimate, Animate. (Only) Half the Reflection,” a show in two parts, the second of which features 30 charming marionettes wearing to-scale pieces from her archive.
The person-sized clothes, which made their debut during the men’s shows last month in a presentation, were suspended from the ceiling on rotating mechanisms that afforded close-up inspection of the intricate techniques that have earned her a loyal following.
There was a black pinafore dress with T-shaped cuts outlined with wide satin stitch embroidery, and a delicate white mesh harness.
“We call this coat, ‘The Coat of Dreams (and of Nightmares)’,” said English, fondly nodding to a black topper made from a great many patches of recycled black fabric, each piece encased in fine silk tulle. The kind of deceptively simple, thing that a cursory glance sets the mind to thinking, “Right, black coat” but an up-close eye-ball reveals all its complexities.
The space was scented by Timothy Han, who used the aromas of birch tar and dry wheat from his “On the Road” fragrance to emphasize English’s focus on natural sustainable fabrics, and Johanna Burnheart performed

Warm RTW Fall 2019

“My husband gave me this photo a long time ago, it’s of the Venice Beach Rock Festival in 1967,” designer Winnie Beattie remarked, holding up a picture of the back of a girl seemingly swaying with her hand in the air facing the festival landscape. “I was like ‘Oh my God that looks like such a “Warm” girl to me,’ like the spirit, so it kind of started this whole festival vibes for me — not in a Coachella — but in a 1967 Venice retro [way].” Influenced by the image’s energizing yet easygoing spirit, Beattie sought out to elevate the relaxed fashion depicted through modernized silhouettes.
The collection included a lively mix of silks and velvets in pieces that could be, “super earthy-hippy or super sophisticated,” as she put it. For instance, new wide-leg, relaxed pants in burnt orange velvet with a matching loungey jacket or Chinese dragon printed slightly-shimmery lurex jumpsuit. Beattie’s familiar printed frocks came in wonderful updated floral and striped colorways; two of the best came in short A-line minidress silhouette. Ditto to her uber soft, solid cotton voile jacquard blouses with smocked cuffs and collar and short-sleeve long dresses. Beattie successfully emulated the folky festival vibes

Marc Jacobs RTW Fall 2019

“You have to come to New York to see a private couture show.”
That observation came from no less an aficionado of the haute genre than Sidney Toledano. Surely the couture notion crossed some other minds of those exiting the Marc Jacobs show on Wednesday night after what was a dazzling display of fashion.
Jacobs scaled everything back but the fashion impact. He showed 40 looks, fewer than his typical 60-plus, to an audience far smaller than usual. Yet he kept the show at the vast Park Avenue Armory, where he installed a reflective black glass floor and hired the American Contemporary Music Ensemble to perform live. He positioned the quartet off in a corner, far from the runway but well-lit and very much in view as the models proceeded out, each commanding the space solo and exiting fully before the next girl emerged. It all coalesced into a haunting dialogue between intimacy and distance.
The clothes were exquisite. “Each [look] will be an exaggeration of our view of who each of the women is,” Jacobs said during a preview. “For lack of a better word, it’s like a cabine of women we love.” Perhaps the most loved: Christy Turlington Burns, who last

Batsheva RTW Fall 2019

Batsheva Hay hosted a sort of theater piece to present her fall collection. While a few women were working at sewing machines, the models, including actress Christina Ricci and musician Melissa Auf der Maur, walked down the stairs of an empty retail location in SoHo after reading small excerpts of love songs at the microphone. They were dressed in frocks and separates that were inspired by “me being taken around the Salvation Army when I was a teenager,” the designer said before the show.
The brand’s signature prairie dresses, cut with high necklines and pouf shoulders trimmed in ruffles, were rendered this season in a range of fabrics — from red velvet and a shiny orange silk taffeta to a cloth printed with images of Holly Hobbie. The same motif also gave a retro, childlike feel to cropped pants with ruffled cuffs, which were matched with a floral top. A blue apron dress revealed a sweet Peter Pan collar, while a rose-shaped application embellished a ruffled frock crafted from a white and green striped cotton. Though the collection was heavy on Hay’s signature dresses, they were juxtaposed by a few separates and an outerwear style, a dark green velvet coat embellished

Moon Choi RTW Fall 2019

Designer Moon Choi has been in the fashion game with her eponymous label for just around two years. Within that time, she’s established a gender-fluid identity of minimalist dress that relies on traditionally mannish styles with conceptually driven touchstones. The brand is broadly appealing, namely because unique references underlie her spare, modernist inclinations.
Choi said she was inspired by the duality of movement and human emotion for fall. “I believe life is not a single layer. It’s about experiences and movement. I really thought about how the garment flows with our bodies and emotions.” To show that thread of movement, she lightly twisted and wrapped the lines of garments in ways that naturally follow the body. For instance, a new category of chic jersey knit tops in dusty tones of mustard and grayish-green were twisted at the torso as if the wearer had turned around; ditto for a similarly body-hugging navy dress.
She balanced familiar open-panel coats against unexpected drama, notably with an impossibly chic trench coat with asymmetric construction and floaty panels along the sleeves that were meant to represent multi-layered identity. The dynamic between warped edges and straight lines was infinitely attractive.
The collection was just as much a statement on

Grammys 2019 Fashion Review: Cardi B on the Half Shell, Michelle Obama on Stage

Typically, it’s awards season’s loudest red carpet. But Sunday night’s Grammys fashion was unusually quiet — and covered up.
Without Beyonce, Rihanna, Taylor Swift or Ariana Grande, who ditched the awards show after creative differences with producers (but wore her Zac Posen gown on Instagram anyway), the diva quotient was down, with only Cardi B’s meme-generating vintage 1995 Thierry Mugler Venus on the half shell look, and Janelle Monae’s sharp-shouldered Jean Paul Gaultier couture minidress to get armchair critics going.
Even Lady Gaga, who famously arrived at the 2011 Grammys in an Armani egg pod, played it relatively safe (she’s a movie star now, after all), wearing a silver, side-ruffle gown by Hedi Slimane for Celine (a no-brainer given that she attended his first women’s ready-to-wear show in October).
Long gone were the nearly nude looks of years past; instead of baring her naval in daring green Versace circa 2000, Jennifer Lopez went with a modest, crystal-embellished mint green Ralph and Russo column gown, and covered her face with a wide-brim hat; Miley Cyrus worked an oversized circa 2019 Mugler suit with a side of cleavage, and H.E.R. was outfitted in a custom Coach purple jacquard jumpsuit.

Tibi RTW Fall 2019

“Tough but happy” is the attitude that Amy Smilovic requested of the models walking the Tibi catwalk on Sunday afternoon. That was also the overall mood of the collection, which combined the brand’s signature minimal, urban-chic aesthetic with charming, vibrant colors and eye-catching details, such as the sparkling sequins embellishing the sleeves of clean-cut dresses with snap buttons.
“Curiosity, exploring, modern details, but not too much,” said Smilovic backstage after the show, summing up the driving forces and the main ideas behind her collection. In her desire to shake up heritage with experimentation, for example, she peppered city separates with sporty drawstrings and embellished sleeveless frocks and midiskirts with quilted duvet inserts; knitted sweaters got the deconstructed treatment.
Tuxedo blazers showing constructed shoulders worn with mini skirts had an early Nineties’ feel, while the glossy printed crocodile leather skirts styled with soft, cozy knits and the fluid dresses with bow collars styled with boots exuded Seventies’ cool.
New mini bags with chain straps introduced a cute note to this sensible wardrobe for empowered working women — a lineup for girls who are tough but happy, indeed.

Derek Lam 10 Crosby RTW Fall 2019

Derek Lam 10 Crosby design director Shawn Reddy is feeling preppy for fall. He name-checked Ali MacGraw’s character in the 1970 movie “Love Story” as his seasonal muse. In the movie, MacGraw goes to Radcliffe College, once the sister school to the all-male Harvard. “It’s such a visual movie,” Reddy said during a walk-through.
The idea came through on shirting with a knit yoke and built-in scarf details that can be tied around the neck, and also with some tops with rugby strips cut on a bias that ran diagonally down the garment. Looser micro-check suiting, a new blazer shape for the season with a nipped waist silhouette, and new zipper and button details could be paired with one of the plaid puffer outerwear options. Each had a preppy vibe but were injected with a light design twist.
With fall comes the lead-up to winter events. Reddy offered up crew neck cotton tops with feathers cascading at the waistband and sequin wide-leg pants, a fun take on the signature pajama pants a Derek customer knows well. Here they were done in silver, black and rose gold.
Faux-fur accessories added a rich layer to the contemporary collection, with super soft options including trapper hats, gloves, oversize bags and

Chiara Boni La Petite Robe RTW Fall 2019

For fall, Chiara Boni explored new territories with her signature stretch jersey fabric. She paired it with velvet to create shiny suits and fitted dresses, while tactile patterns inspired by opulent brocades were rendered in skintight separates punctuated by ruffles and sheath frocks embellished with peplum details.
Playing with fabric combinations, the designer dressed up jersey frocks with tulle sleeves and heart-shaped embellishments at the bodice. The flamboyance of wallpaper-like floral motifs enriched by golden threads was tempered by the mannish suiting patterns of a very feminine skirt cinched at the waist with a jewel-like belt.
Highlights included a black and gold fluid maxi dress injected with a folkish attitude, as well as a ballerina-like frock with a romantic bow that seemed designed for a modern Sabrina.

Ulla Johnson RTW Fall 2019

Ulla Johnson’s fall collection combined bold patterns, rich textures and flattering silhouettes in a lineup that exuded a romantic, adventurous and poetic sensibility. But its many diverse ideas were unified by an elegant, sophisticated attitude.
Nomadic and subtly bohemian references injected a charming feel into the clothes, which seemed designed for a chic globetrotter exploring the world with style. 
Shearling coats with tick stitching that created check patterns, as well as striped vests and overcoats with a rustic feel were matched with safari-like separates in graphic motifs, maxi leather skirts embellished with macramé inserts, as well as corduroy separates with tops that had draped, maxi shoulders. Flowers blossomed on both a sumptuous, maxi ruffled dress worked in a shining devore velvet and on jacquard frocks and separates lightened up by shimmering metallic threads.
The collection’s overall hyper-feminine allure was savvily tempered with more urban and minimal styles, including a workwear-inspired jumpsuit crafted from cream white denim, which was also used for a pair of carrot pants matched with a beautiful Peruvian baby alpaca handmade crochet sweater exuding exquisite sartorial quality.
Armed with impeccable taste and a very distinctive tone, Johnson delivered another solid collection that brought an intriguing multicultural, romantic vibe to

Markarian RTW Fall 2019

“I’m saying that this collection reminds me of ‘the Medicis going to the disco,’ which is a ridiculous quote,” Markarian designer Alexandra O’Neill demurred. As unrealistic as the idea might sound, her stellar fall lineup seamlessly melded fanciful femininity with sparkling disco fever.
Gowns came in velvets, traditional brocades and classic floral prints with puffed sleeves and dramatic ruffles, but given a modern edge with shimmering, glitzy details. For instance, a black velvet ballgown and fanciful velvet “tracksuit” both came festooned with rhinestone trimming, while a floral brocade gown boasted a dramatic ruffled bust. 
Channeling a more obvious disco vibe were dazzling minis: a holographic pink wrap dress with puffed shoulders and bow made of a viscose fabric that “would literally go up in flames” according to O’Neill, or a really great ruched black-and-white spotted number. Playful details — hearts, bows, flowers, rhinestone belts — adorned dresses and separates throughout, adding to the fun femininity. Each piece in the 40-look collection was strong, but melding the two ideas into her aesthetic is where O’Neill’s collection truly shone.

Victor Li Men’s Fall 2019

Even though this may be his sophomore collection, Victor Li has luxury on the brain.
On his latest trip to Hokkaido, Japan, “I asked myself what I would put into my suitcase from a traveler perspective,” Li said at his presentation, which was held at the Japan Society.
This translated into a sophisticated traveler’s wardrobe, with classic pieces including a taupe shearling jacket worn with soft pink cashmere sweatpants; a cream double-breasted overcoat and a suit offered in three different fits: American, European and a kimono jacket version.
Some of the more fashion-forward pieces, such as an embroidered blanket jacket and a black leather parka, gave the offering that extra luxe feel.
Li also launched accessories this season, offering a nylon waist bag, and two duffel style bags — one in canvas and one in leather.

Paula Canovas del Vas RTW Fall 2019

It probably was a good call for London-based designer Paula Canovas del Vas to show her ready-to-wear collection during Paris Couture Week, a traditional setting that made her high-voltage silhouettes all the more striking.
Inspired by the surrealist work of film director Alejandro Jodorowsky, Canovas del Vas, a Central Saint Martins graduate, played with volumes, proportions and materials with abandon. There were bright orange fringe dresses, faux fur skirts, short coats and gloves, exaggerated bunched-up shoulders and a couple of cycling shorts. Technical materials like Lycra were paired with wool creations embossed with giant flower motifs, an old technique popular in the South of Spain, where the designer hails from.
Hair was twisted in aerials sticking up from the models’ heads and curving devil’s horns protruded from the front of tops. Mohair shoes — the “Diablo” flats and boots, real showstoppers — were a true work of art, made by eight different artisans.
“There is a real sense of craft to what I do, everything is handmade,” Canovas del Vas said backstage. Bringing together the OTT aesthetic of East London, where her studio is based, and the traditional craftsmanship of Murcia, the Southern Spain region where her family is from, the designer’s creations are both an accurate

Yeohlee RTW Fall 2019

“Yeohlee throws herself a challenge,” the designer said of her namesake fall collection during a preview at her store. Never mind the mathematical or geometric undertones of her deceptively minimalist designs. She was speaking to the season’s sustainable arc, where she dived into years worth of archival fabric and inventory to create a wholly upcycled range.
Sustainability is arguably the most widely discussed issue facing the fashion industry today, and it’s become an umbrella term for a range of good practices. For Yeohlee Teng, it means endurance, and being able to reinvent old fabrics for the modern day. There were a host of standouts, including a neon day-glo fabric from 2003 cut into an athletic-leaning jacket and joggers, plum melange silk taffeta from 2008 rendered into languid pants cut on the bias, and silk duchess satin from the Nineties reimagined into a voluminous yet lightweight baseball jacket that maintained a great ballooning shape.
Cohesion was Teng’s biggest challenge, and she managed to unify looks with a sculptural and modernist hand that held a gender-ambiguous thread. Outerwear highlighted these elements best, and included a wide-neck coat with high-low hem that was actually one width of square fabric, and a regal black-and-silver duchess satin

Kobi Halperin RTW Fall 2019

Fall marks four years since Kobi Halperin launched his line, and as such, the designer was feeling nostalgic about beginnings, in terms of both the brand and his personal life. An avid traveler, Halperin often mines the cultures of far-flung locales to influence an aesthetic heavy on prints and detailed embroidery. He didn’t disappoint in those areas, offering a breadth of warm, inviting patterns culled from carpet textiles in his homeland of Israel.
Upon first glance, there was noticeable variety in terms of color, texture and patterns. It was a lot, and all quite polished and elegant given the mashup of prints. There was a seamless blend of skirts with washed out rug patterns and the ornate novelty blouses for which he’s known, and with graphic ikat separates complementing crushed velvet tops with vintage-leaning baroque embroidery. It wasn’t all so literal — white lace was created with carpet motifs Halperin brought back from flea markets in Tel Aviv, and feathers punctuating elevated knitwear mirrored decorative tassels that framed rugs. He was drawn to carpets for their connotations of comfort and feeling at home.
He made a point to highlight a casual element the Kobi way through silky blouses with puff shoulders, crushed

Isabel Marant Étoile RTW Fall 2019

For her secondary label, Isabel Marant doubled down on comfort, considering what she would want to wrap herself up in when the weather turned chilly. A fuzzy plaid shirt thus became a poncho, its zip-up collar adjustable for extra warmth. An oversize, quilted vest, too, looked cozy — it had texture, in the form of braid patterns — and smart, as well, cinched at the waist with a leather belt. The designer was equipping her young, fashion-conscious customer with solid outerwear that doubled as a protective layer.
Another example came in the form of a thick brown leather jacket, like a pilot’s jacket from the last century, repurposed for a new era — the shoulders had Eighties-style extra puff. A pale purple sweatshirt was embellished with quilted shoulder patches, and an acid-washed jean jacket had a fuzzy wool collar.
For dressier occasions, she offered an elegant black lace dress, snug in all the right places for sexiness, and an extra ruffle for a touch of the romantic. Her peasant blouses had large sleeves and two ruffles on each shoulder. 
She kept her waists high and the sweaters chunky, for the most part. The collection was all about being in the comfort zone: the

Azzi & Osta Couture Spring 2019

Lebanese designers George Azzi and Assaad Osta presented their silk road inspired couture collection in Paris. The designers, who both worked with Elie Saab, before launching their own label, have known each other since design school days and shared a mutual fascination with journey of dressmaking. “It was always very fascinating to us how silk as a luxury had to travel from one side of the earth to another to get to the royal courts of Europe,” Osta said. Each piece from the collection paid tribute to a city, monument or memorable landmark along the road. The designers used various techniques including pleating, antique embroideries and the sculptured structures to reflect the journey. The color palette reflected of the skies from dusk to dawn, with shades of jade green, cerulean blue, jasmine white, powder pink, lilac, mulberry yellow and twilight blue.
“The idea of how secretive and protected the provenance and art of silk making was is very similar to couture, the savoir faire, the well-kept secret of the couture house, and the journey that undertakes every piece,” Azzi added. The designers have caught the attention of celebrities, dressing Beyoncé, Cardi B and Kendall Jenner.

Christian Wijnants Pre-Fall 2019

Paintings by Alice Neel served as a starting point for the prints of Christian Wijnants’ pre-fall collection, which he presented in the showroom of the Galerie d’Architecture.
He noticed the portrait painter’s use of stripes, which he borrowed and applied to a white T-shirt — they ran vertically, hand-painted rather than machine-drawn, as shown by how they wavered slightly.
Known for celebrating diversity, Neel was active between the Sixties and the Eighties, corresponding to Wijnant’s childhood. Perhaps his attraction to her work reflected a nostalgic bent, he observed. A denim dress had a slight Seventies flavor with interesting seams crisscrossing the body, diagonal at the chest, while a pocket at the waist was slightly pushed forward. Going for a bit more elegance, he opted for higher waistlines, more cotton — for shape — and lots of jackets, in oversize cuts, boyfriend style. The resulting lineup felt relevant and self-assured, bringing new elements to the label’s knit and patterned universe.
With pre-fall collections hitting stores in May, he offered pieces with a summer feeling — the market has increasingly become see-now-buy-now, he noted.
Prints included a stylized flower he calls moon flowers, noting there was something poetic about not being able to identify the shape,

Aganovich Couture Spring 2019

It was a striking scene. Ghostly couture silhouettes designed by Nana Aganovich and Brooke Taylor, the duo behind Aganovich, seemed eerier still once set against the backdrop of a carpenter’s workshop.
A roaring fire rattled the panes of the Parisian atelier to the sound of pigeons cooing while models slowly navigated their way along the machines, surrounded by wood planks and various hardware. The label’s second couture collection explored the story of a woman on a journey: “She’s armed and protected, but as she goes through life things happen and she becomes someone different,” Aganovich explained.
This was expressed by trailing unfinished hems, giving the impression of the looks unraveling before the viewers’ eyes. The models’ faces were constricted by veils, with the occasional addition of fake locks of hair piled on top of their heads.
The looks were all about contrast. White billowing silhouettes were pitted against yellow plaid suits, a Victorian gown followed a jacket with a structured waist, and a delicate feather-rimmed skirt was given a hard edge when paired with leather boots held up by safety pins.
As expected of a couture collection, all the materials were treated in Paris by the label’s atelier. The brand uses the same patterns as

Isabel Marant Men’s Fall 2019

With only a few seasons under her belt, Isabel Marant has found her groove for designing her fledgling men’s wear line. The fall collection hit a new level of confidence, offering relaxed and stylish pieces that translated her codes into a youthful offer for men in the market for something out of the mainstream.  
“It’s mostly a story of a good cut, good fabrics, good colors — it’s not about dressing a man who’s super fashion-conscious, but rather to dress a man for everyday life, with a bit of style and a bit of attitude,” she said. 
The Eighties vibes prevalent in her women’s lines transferred over in the form of loose, windbreaker-style cuts with rounded shoulders — a house signature. Examples included a light pink sweatshirt with ivory patches, a thick brown leather bomber and a thin shiny silver jacket with khaki and copper panels that zips up the front. Further addressing the outerwear craze, she delivered trenches, an autumn-toned camouflage raincoat and a cosy reversible shearling coat.
Other highlights included a faded pink boiler suit and an added touch of humor on the back of a dark corduroy jean jacket: embroidered with a wolf face it reads “I howl my

Maison Margiela Artisanal Spring 2019 Couture

Decadence — a word tingling with intrigue, and the new object of John Galliano’s fascination for his Maison Margiela Artisanal collection.
The designer spent the past four couture seasons defining “a New Glamour,” the results of which are the “blood coursing through the veins of the Maison Margiela,” he notes in the latest installment of the podcast, created to provide context to his collections. Now, he’s ready to move on.
The collection Galliano showed on Monday was all about decadence, which he equates with excess, and what’s more excessive today than the insatiable thirst for technology, especially among Gen Z types? “The overstimulation of computer-generated imagery alters reality and degenerates the truth. Chaotic and unsettling, it is a confusion of the senses rooted in an over-satiation that inevitably overspills,” his program read. He thus wondered if now is the time for a counter movement, one from frenzy to something resembling restraint.
The show space at Margiela headquarters fueled overstimulation, covered in a wild, aggressive graffiti motif made all the more dizzying by the mirrored floor. The only image to emerge with clarity from the visual dissonance was that of a poodle in a color Galliano loves — vibrant Yves Klein blue.

Ermanno Scervino Pre-Fall 2019

A versatile attitude sits at the core of this collection, where different influences converged into a rich lineup, rooted in the brand’s feminine interpretation of the classic sartorial elegance. While David Bowie-inspired suits showed fitted, narrow silhouettes, lace plissé miniskirts with asymmetric details were matched with hyper soft leather shirts. Echoing Jean-Michel Basquiat graffiti art, multicolored graphics appeared as intarsias on both the cozy sweaters worked in pop tones and the tailored coats showing traditional suiting patterns. A military touch was introduced via an arty take on the camouflage print, which peppered refined minidresses and mannish cargo pants.

Miu Miu Pre-Fall 2019

Well into its third month of openings that just meandered through the men’s fall 2019 season and into this week’s premier event — couture — pre-fall now strikes as mostly ho-hum and beside the point.
So it’s nice to be reminded that even at the tail end of a way too long, largely forgettable stretch, good clothes will always resonate. Miuccia Prada is just the person to send that message, and did so with her delightful Miu Miu collection.
Imagine the young Diana Spencer gone a little bit punk. No real subversion, mind you, just a good girl’s aspirational take on disaffected attitude. Read: ruffled shirts and collars mixed with loose-knit, undone sweaters and baggy pants, tapered towards the ankle. Add in pretend heraldic crests, classic Miu Miu sparkle in sequins and gold leather, and some Tyrolean action — pretty flowers, sturdy fabrics, external corsetry — and you’ve got the makings of a charming collection interesting enough to put an upbeat punctuation mark on pre-fall.
Now enough already. Real fall is but a fortnight away.

Myar Men’s Fall 2019

Andrea Rosso focused on repurposing the internal lining of military jackets this season, upcycling it into other forms. “We call this collection ‘Re_enforce’ because we give strength to something that did not exist before,” he said, citing as an example parka liners that became bombers.
“Every product is unique because it’s vintage,” continued Rosso, who chooses deadstock with which to work from warehouses. “We love to unstitch, restitch and to give another view of the garments.”
He sliced Belgian camouflage jackets in two, turning one part inside out before reconstructing the halves together and adding pockets for symmetry. Sweatshirts were reconstituted, too.
U.S. Air Force sweatpants were given the Myar logo on one side, with some dyed in pink, orange or light blue. Swiss military camouflage was dyed light blue, and on the jacket’s back a swatch of the original material was sewn on.
“This is somehow maintaining the past, but with a modern view of it,” Rosso said. He reworked numerous types of uniform pieces, such overpants, with pockets and reflective touches, to become urban trousers.
For the first season, Myar created various sized bags from scrap materials. “We tend to give a second life to everything that we can,” Rosso said.

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.

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.

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.

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’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.
She turned a photograph she took of a Miami beach being cleaned in the

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.
Look for more a more pronounced evolution of the collection for
