Versace Men’s Spring 2020

Buckle up and put on those Biggie sunglasses because Donatella is roaring into town in her arty black Ferrari, and she’s ready for some fun, Nineties Versace style. Boy, did the designer pile it on for spring, with leopard spots, colored crystals, car prints and Lilly Pulitzer-decamps-to-Miami neon brights. And that was the men’s wear, not the few women’s looks.
Few surfaces in the collection were untouched by print, gloss or sparkle as models glowed and flashed like beacons on a dark road. Bold and garish, the show was 100-proof Versace, utterly true to the brand’s roots, and to the Gianni-cum-Donatella aesthetic of more, more, more – and repeat – preferably while swinging a leopard-print bag.
There was nothing subtle going on here, what with the big Gianni Versace signature splashed over neckties, or picked out in lines of tiny crystals on silk patterned shirts. For anyone wondering who Versace’s new owners are, there were some big clues in the baseball caps and Gianni Versace signature socks, classic entry price merch to please the folks at the publicly-quoted Capri Holdings.
While the yellow, orange, green or blue-tinged sunglasses didn’t carry big branding, they were a vintage house style, designed for the Notorious B.I.G.

Fabiana Filippi Resort 2020

For resort season, an emphasis on suiting with a fresh palette and new materials gave the refined Fabiana Filippi woman a fresh look. At a request from customers, more color was injected into the lineup than in prior seasons with hues said to be inspired by the gardens and cityscape of Lisbon, Portgual. Much like fall, the best looks emulated a casual-chic aesthetic, as in a mint hooded jacket with matching skirt or silver technical jacket atop cream pullover and track-trouser.
New materials made their way into the collection a la intriguing suiting. A new embroidered linen with “rain effect” weave; a crinkled technical taffeta option in black; scuba material blazer and jacket with stylish, sporty elan; a ruby pajama-like leisure suit. Elsewhere, dresses came shimmering — more casual in rose gold technical taffeta or more “evening” in gold sequins.

House of Holland Resort 2020

Henry Holland channeled the glitz and glamour of Seventies disco — and the discontentment of the era — into his latest resort collection. “I feel like everyone is just so pissed off at the world right now, and disco was born out of that,” he said.
He anchored this with punk rock references such as a Nina Hagen-printed T-shirt and a striped-and-cheetah print pattern looking as if it was printed on a photocopy machine. It appeared on minidresses and oversize mohair knitwear.
Holland, whose always been generous with color, showed a capsule of red and pink striped looks including a large puffer jacket with a ruched collar. Elsewhere, he introduced glittery Lurex dresses in pale blue, gold and black, while dresses with oversize puff shoulders completed the disco vibe, he said.
A colorful three-piece suit hung next to a black-and-white mini polka-dotted chiffon dress. “The collection is a juxtaposition of the tomboy, cool girl and super fan, and there’s none of this overstyling you get from club kids today.”

Hindsight Is 20-20

Soon after our last child left home for college, my husband was resting next to me on the couch with his head in my lap. I carefully removed his
glasses.

“You know, honey,” I said sweetly, “without your glasses, you look like the same handsome young man I married.”

“Honey,” he replied with a grin, “without my glasses, you still look pretty good too!”

Givenchy Men’s Spring 2020

“For me it’s the perfect serendipitous moment. I’d been looking to do a show and I wanted to do something very special, and then the invitation came,” said Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller, who for her debut stand-alone men’s runway display on Wednesday evening in Florence, as the special guest of the Pitti Uomo trade show, chose the luxuriant gardens of the Villa Palmieri as the stage for a collection fusing Old and New World aesthetics. The storyline was fed through a minimalist, Nineties filter, with a focus on clean, monochromatic total looks. It was easy to see the commercial potential in the line, which felt very urban and of the moment, with the airy, summery mood extending to the 30 tailoring silhouettes.
The designer sent out endless variations on the suit with a wide diversity of fits, including the return to the three-button silhouette with a slightly softer shoulder and a subtly pearlized luster in the fabric; boxy silhouettes echoed on shirts with drop sleeves, and a spin on the three-piece suit, pairing a coat with a matching jacket worn over bare skin. Waight Keller also included a couple of girls in the lineup, cementing the collection’s de facto genderless feel,

Ermenegildo Zegna to Stage Spring 2020 Show at Former Industrial Complex

INDUSTRIAL VENUE: Alessandro Sartori has gotten attendees of his Ermenegildo Zegna shows accustomed to unexpected and often gargantuan locations.
For the upcoming spring 2020 show, the label’s artistic director has selected a former industrial complex, known as Area Ex Falck, located in Sesto San Giovanni on the outskirts of Milan. The show is scheduled at 8:30 p.m on June 14.
“This place allows me to continue to tell the story of incredible and unexpected venues in Milan through their essence. It’s a continuum: what a place meant in the past continues to live in the present and will continue to live in the future with a different soul,” Sartori told WWD.
The designer also teased the #usetheexisting dedicated show hashtag.
The show venue was home to Italy’s storied iron and steel company Falck, which was founded in 1906 and then converted in the Nineties to the production of energy from traditional and renewable sources. Dented by decreasing sales during the Seventies, the company dismissed the Sesto San Giovanni plants.
The original industrial site comprised five different plants called Unione, Concordia, Vulcano, Vittoria and Vittoria S, which covered 32 million square feet in the Sixties. The exact spot for the Ermenegildo Zegna show inside the area

Salvatore Ferragamo Men’s Spring 2020

Having Palazzo Vecchio as the backdrop of a runway show is a privilege that only a quintessential Florentine brand such as Salvatore Ferragamo with a long history in this Tuscan city could hope to pull off. Of course such an incredible backdrop might have become a bit overwhelming with a weak collection. But that wasn’t the case for the lineup creative director Paul Andrew showed on Tuesday night.
The antique beauty of the Piazza della Signoria square actually created a charming contrast to the slightly futuristic take on the utilitarian aesthetic injected into the collection. Salvatore Ferragamo’s incredible craftsmanship and heritage stood out, but in a new version, never nostalgic or retro, but projected into the future. The high-tech approach to the treatment of materials, including leather which was embossed and then waxed for a glossy effect, as well a certain sharpness in the cuts, conveyed a look that felt very modern and cool yet never cold or too minimal. Accessories helped put the focus on the duality of the lineup: while the sailing bags and the leather sandals exuded classic elegance, the multipocket bags and chunky boots offered the most functional and cutting-edge essence of Andrew’s fashion proposal for

Sachin & Babi Resort 2020

In an increasingly digital world, e-commerce has become invaluable to help brands move forward. For designers Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia, it’s highlighted an increased demand for evening separates the past few seasons, a category they took a deep dive into for resort. “We call it evening separates, but they’re really well-made separates at an achievable price,” Sachin said during a showroom visit.
They showed a spectrum of options here, ranging from getaway with a white waffle piqué wrap top to alternative evening with a bright neon yellow top accented by a big shoulder bow. It meant an increase in bottoms as well, which included supple vegan leather skirts and loosely cut pants. The beauty was everything could be elevated with any number of the season’s statement earrings, and mixed and matched to suit different occasions.
The Ahluwalias have learned, too, that sometimes a great silhouette and bold color choice is enough to draw in customers. They’re known for heavily embroidered evening gowns, which will always sit at the core of the brand, but perceived value through shape, luxe fabrication and glam factor is equally alluring. A broken rainbow gown, for instance, offered high impact in an easy silhouette. It’s the third season

C2H4 Men’s Spring 2020

Yixi Chen stuck to what she knows best and presented a collection of futuristic performance wear pieces like seasons past. She created a new narrative around these pieces and split her collection into three story lines, which she said were “a commentary on class-based societies.”
The first round of looks — distressed hoodies and patchwork puffers — referenced the lower class. Silhouettes tightened up and sportswear pieces such as logo pullover jackets and straight-leg nylon trackpants showed the uniformity of the working class. A crisp white après-ski wear outfit, which felt heavy for a spring collection, led the final round of looks of Chen’s elite class.
There were plenty of commercially desirable pieces in the lineup of waterproof jackets, puffer jackets and rip-stop nylon trackpants that would be sure to please the streetwear crowd, as proven by some showgoers who were already wearing full C2H4 look.
Chen is most innovative, however, when it comes to materials. She presented a black puffer jacket that reflected duochrome purple and green under the spotlight, which had audience members snapping away.

Iceberg Spring 2020

James Long isn’t one to hold back. His spring 2020 collection for Iceberg was a loud, colorful concoction of head-to-toe neon looks, bright patchwork prints created with artist Peter Blake, large logos, fishnets, retro ski sunglasses and all that is trending.
The idea: To mix the brand’s Italians roots with London’s eccentricity and punk heritage — and to just keep enjoying the process.
Long is definitely having fun. Since taking the helm of Iceberg he has dreamt up collections where Snow White hits the club in studded leather harnesses or Snoopy takes center stage on intarsia knits.
This season, Mickey and the Looney Tunes made flash appearances on oversized T-shirts and sweaters in the form of distorted illustrations, but it was Blake’s Pop-art graphics that featured most heavily all over denim, matching crop jackets and knits.
They showcased variations of the U.S. flag with the word “Amerika” printed all over.
“Subliminally there is a statement, I’m in Italy, I’m English, my mum is Irish, America is a problem. I thought it was really relevant for now,” said Long backstage.
While the focus on denim and sporty tracksuits remained, there was a heftier dose of tailoring added to the mix. But Long’s version came in bright neon

Theory Resort 2020

It’s been a full fashion calendar year since Francesco Fucci came on as creative director at Theory. He was tasked with refining the sportswear brand, and has done so beautifully with a sense of romance drawn from his European upbringing. Resort marked the first time his focus turned to the energy of New York, and really honing in on the brand’s workwear roots for women who lead dynamic lives.
He wanted the clothes to reflect what you might find in a corporate office environment — workwear, after all, should be clothes meant for work — in a utilitarian language with bright sporty touches. He played on balances of classic and futuristic, men’s and women’s wear, in crisp and minimal silhouettes like shirting, trousers with sharp lines, and sleek angular tailoring. Fundamental Theory ingredients like suiting and pants maintained a clear boyish thread. “As a European, for me this is very modernist American,” Fucci said during a private appointment, adding: “It feels very New York in my imagination.”
He made sure to offset what he deemed “thoughtful boringness” with cheeky touchstones. An urban parka, for instance, featured a built-in sash so you could sling the garment over your shoulder when it gets too

Erdem Resort 2020

Erdem Moralioglu wove together references from Seventies’ Italian cinema, the Belle Epoque and his fascination with how different decades have interpreted history for this dreamlike collection full of bows, floral patterns and flourishes. If that all sounds too overblown, it wasn’t. Moralioglu tempered the froth with printed puffer jackets, sleek Forties-style dresses and neat, tailored suits with flared trousers, giving this collection a practical, contemporary edge.
 

 
For every printed dress with an overblown bow, there was another, similar one with a more subtle tie at the neck while tailored coats and belted dresses counterbalanced long, flowing, more romantic styles. Prints were based on big silk scarves the designer had developed over the years while shoes were flat with big bows, lending an innocence to this collection.
Moralioglu says he loves designing resort and thinking about the ways his looks can be worn all year. There was certainly plenty here to love 12 months of the year, especially those waisted dresses and coats with subtle bows, polka dots, ruffles or little pouf sleeves, a historical, cultural mash-up, Erdem-style.

Nili Lotan Resort 2020

“Talking about rock ‘n’ roll, they [the musicians] didn’t have any means. They didn’t buy designer clothing, they were inventive. To me, that’s what’s intriguing,” Nili Lotan expressed during a walkthrough of her resort collection. The designer had recently seen The Rolling Stones’ new, unreleased “Rock and Roll Circus” remastered and reissued film featuring old footage of the rock-‘n’-roll world including Jimi Hendrix, who proved as inspiration for her latest lineup. “Not just him, but the way he dresses. People like him and Mick Jagger [another rock-’n’-roll forefather who continually influences Lotan’s aesthetic] put themselves together in a way that’s just so cool, effortless,” she remarked.
To convey Hendrix’s rock-’n’-roll attitude and flamboyant, eclectic style, Lotan introduced three novelty jackets — a gold-trimmed band jacket, a military style with red piping and gold buttons and a black leather one with gold, leopard-print embossed shoulder panels. The jackets were piled over silk and cotton ruffled burgundy striped- or snakeskin-print blouses, piped band-pant trousers, and leather and velvet leopard-print miniskirts, to name a few.
Lotan’s strength throughout was consistency across her main collection and more price friendly NL daywear line, differentiated via fabrics. One could throw on a new NL novelty graphic T-shirt

Missoni Resort 2020

An exotic vibe ran through Missoni’s charming collection. The brand’s signature graphic motifs were juxtaposed with revisited wild animal patterns, motifs of leaves and flowers, as well as a new arty camouflage worked in a multicolored palette.
Imaging a modern Lauren Hutton taking adventurous trips in far-flung locales, Missoni creative director Angela Missoni introduced a slightly Seventies, free-spirited feeling, which also resonated in the sophisticated hues, including bronze and rust tones.
The laid-back mood of the comfortable, fluid shapes in pants, maxi cardigans, spring coats and sleeveless dresses cut in clean silhouettes contrasted with the textures, which included sparkling lame touches, rich jacquards and a cascade of fringes giving a bold look to mini frocks.
The flamboyancy was tempered by the mannish suits in classic sartorial fabrics, while a tribal feel was introduced via artisanal mini bags and sandals showing interwoven leather laces.

Max Mara Resort 2020

“Even rebellion can be done with elegance.” Electing Marlene Dietrich and David Bowie as his inspirations for the Max Mara Resort 2020 collection, creative director Ian Griffiths admitted his recent infusion of “punk attitude” into the brand. “I myself was a punk — but an elegant punk,” the designer said with a smile, speaking ahead of the show, which was held on Monday at Berlin’s Neues Museum — the first such event at the location.
“It’s been one of my lifelong ambitions to do something about Berlin or in Berlin, ever since my day in art school in the Eighties, I was fascinated by Bauhaus, Marlene Dietrich and the cabaret,” Griffiths explained. “Berlin’s contribution to contemporary culture is so enormous and it deserves recognition.”
As the head designer of Max Mara, a “Berlin coat” was a natural tribute to the city and a starting point for Griffiths. “This is the look I designed first,” he said of the piece worn on the runway by one of Max Mara’s muses, Carolyn Murphy. “I fell in love with the Meissen archive and craftsmanship and I didn’t know how to introduce that in the collection until I saw their exquisite porcelain flowers and I wanted

Givenchy Resort 2020

Clare Waight Keller took to the street for her Givenchy resort collection, channeling everyone from city slickers on their morning commute to fashion week peacocks strutting the sidewalk like their own personal runway.
As creative director of the Paris-based brand, the British designer shuttles between London and the French capital — hence the mix between streetwise looks like shredded denim jackets or a Day-Glo peach bomber jacket, and symbols of élégance à la française.
“I have either really beautiful clothes to wear for evening events and going to specific parties, and then lots of the time I’m dressing kind of chic casual. Gone is this sort of middle ground of office wear. I think it’s really morphed into two camps,” she said.
“That’s being reflected in the way sales are driven and the way the customers respond to the collection,” Waight Keller added. “The really elevated part of the collection can actually be really beautiful and gorgeous and somewhat limitless, and then the part that is everyday is actually very practical and just immediately desirable.”
Nodding to the bourgeois trend, she scattered rows of gold buttons on everything from a roomy camel sweater to a military-inspired coat with a bright red sash. Round buttons

Monse Resort 2020

“We wanted to do a board-game runway but we couldn’t afford it,” Laura Kim said backstage at the Monse show she and Fernando Garcia showed Friday afternoon. Instead, the designers worked an existing artifact to impressive effect, their models strolling around and through the formidable yet fanciful sculpture, Jean Dubuffet’s Group of Four Trees, installed on the courtyard at 28 Liberty Street.
That less-is-more approach proved exactly that – more – while indicating the pragmatism Kim and Garcia have imposed upon themselves without hindering their creative output. Example B: staging a full-on show for resort. During an Oscar de la Renta resort appointment earlier in the week, Kim said that, several seasons into their double-duty at de la Renta and Monse, they’ve realized that producing two shows in one season “is too much for us.” At the same time, their resort Monse business is significantly larger than spring, so the choice to put Monse on the runway for resort seemed like a no-brainer.
As for the fanciful runway that wasn’t, the collection’s stated inspiration was the 2017 book Georgian and Victorian Board Games: The Liman Collection. Kim and Garcia took from it a range of visual imagery, mostly numbers and playing-piece objects

Linder Resort 2020

For his resort debut, Sam Linder presented a fresh, clean — but not too clean — and warped sporty lineup against the elements of a thundery Thursday New York evening. It seemed almost humorously purposeful, Linder’s eclectic play on his almost exclusively white-hued prep collection against the unexpectedly brash backdrop.
Sartorially printed sporty fabrics, specifically spandex, is a string that Linder flawlessly threads through each collection. There were buffalo plains for fall, various tartan prints for spring, and now knife pleats and cable knits for resort. A calf-length, trompe l’oeil, knife-pleated, printed tennis skirt and trompe l’oeil, cable-knit, cardigan, printed, spandex blazer compete with classic striped cuffs made for clever, fashionable takes on prep with the added comfort of stretch.
Other riffs on tennis, the country club life and cricket — “twisted prep,” as Linder called it — came from head to toe. “Green screen green” and white polos were ripped at the side seams and cooly tacked together to expose the hip bones and paired with new, slightly high-waisted sheer technical or solid cotton twill workwear trousers. Athletic short-shorts came in a plasticky blue, strappy tennis dresses had modern, wide-rounded necklines and some tank tops had simply no backs at

Altuzarra Resort 2020

Joseph Altuzarra loves a cinematic reference. For resort, he looked to “3 Women,” Robert Altman’s dreamy, dangerous tale of a bizarre personality exchange between two of the titular characters. Fashion plays a big role — one woman obsessed with style and artifice, the other, a meek church-mouse type, with both personalities telegraphed to perfection in their clothes.
Altuzarra drew less from that disturbing dichotomy than from the film’s physical setting, a Southwestern desert town. From there, he took his palette, which was dominated by earth tones injected with splashes of brights, as well as, he said, “the general American heritage of Western wear”; from 1977, the year of the film’s release, he took whiffs of retro from the relaxed, body-con silhouettes so prevalent during that decade.
The trope worked well for the suitings that are consistently the brand’s top-selling category. That said, Altuzarra applied the suiting concept loosely, in unmatched tailored pieces such as a shrunken beige jacket worn over pants cut lean and flared, a row of buttons running up several inches from the hem creating a bit of unfussy interest. Speaking of unfussy, a utilitarian horse blanket inspired a sturdy-chic wrap skirt paired with a cropped sweater with various semiprecious

Fendi Resort 2020

After the death of Karl Lagerfeld in February, Fendi paid homage to its legendary creative director with the fall 2019 runway show, unveiling the designer’s last collection. But the company remains silent about the future of the top creative spot.
Even if Lagerfeld’s passing clearly left a huge void to fill, Fendi continues to navigate the challenging waters of fashion. No loss of direction, no hesitation: instead, the brand presented a beautiful resort collection that offered a powerful take on its signature sophistication.
Fendi is a company built and developed by women, which Lagerfeld always took into consideration with his celebration of a strong femininity. Now, at least for the time being, the house’s creative team is once again being driven by women, especially Silvia Venturini Fendi, who in this transition phase developed the collection with the brand’s design studio. In light of this, the muse who inspired the resort collection could only be a woman, in particular Jeri Dawn, the protagonist of the Eighties classic “Gloria” who was played by Gena Rowlands. Her attitude, strong and decisive yet deeply emotional and sensitive, infused the development of the lineup, which combined a sartorial sensibility with a delicate sense of romance.

Gucci Resort 2020

It was all there.
Gucci’s iconography under Alessandro Michele could not be missed — his love for antiquity, his quirkiness, his gender-fluid elements, which were heightened by the location, the Capitolini Museums in Rome. And his message was even more powerful this time, as the designer was waving the flag for freedom.
“I feel the need for freedom, at times I feel like I’m suffocating, and I need to launch messages through fashion. I have found freedom through fashion ever since I was a child, whenever it was necessary to speak up,” said Michele, happy but admitting exhaustion after the show. “After all, changing our aspect is an indication of our feelings and those that do our job have antennae, and every time that someone tries to break them, I realize that they become longer in a proportional way.”
Inclusivity has long been a priority for Michele and, once again, the designer said he “insisted on individuality,” pointing out that the casting was even more complex than usual, as he “saw almost double the number of people” compared to other shows. “It’s a parade of humans, a bacchanal under the passing of the subway in Berlin,” he explained.
As cryptic as it may be,

Dsquared2 Resort 2020

In the past few seasons, Dean and Dan Caten created a clearer separation between their runway lineups and pre-collections. While they let their creativity and exuberance fly for the catwalk, they stay focused for pre-fall and resort. Their latest collection was in line with this strategy. Cautious? For sure. But also appropriate for the brand.
A Seventies bohemian look took center stage in the lineup, which offered a breadth of wardrobe staples for real women. Flared denim pants were matched with charming leather jackets injected with a military feel, while mini and maxi frocks were crafted in lightweight fabrics and splashed with micro flowers. In addition, parkas were enriched with floral silk inserts, logos popped up on T-shirts and sweatshirts and crochet tops revealed multicolor geometric motifs.
The brand’s fans won’t have problems finding revisited Dsquared2 icons to amp up their wardrobe, such as drop-crotch jeans and sleek perfecto jackets. Those looking for fresh and directional fashion messages will have to wait for the Dsquared2 coed show in June.

Jil Sander Resort 2020

Simplicity with a playful, lively twist. That’s the message Jil Sander creative directors Lucie and Luke Meier telegraphed with their resort collection, a lineup that felt in line with the designers’ personal approach: discreet and apparently detached, yet emotional and spirited.
The sophisticated rigor of the sculptural silhouettes of the frocks and shirtdresses was interrupted by unexpected details, such as asymmetric folds at the neckline and light draping at the waist. Charming traditional shibori prints injected quirkiness into oversize fluid separates crafted from paper-like silk, while laser-cut circular embellishments conveyed a tribal feel on suede designs rendered in spicy tones.
The collection’s irreverent side was expressed through a mannish tuxedo crafted from soft chenille and crochet designs put the focus on the artisanal mood running throughout.
While the collection was clearly aimed at the brand’s most loyal fans looking for Jil Sander’s minimal urban elegance, it also felt appealing for more fashion-oriented, younger women.

Giorgio Armani Cruise 2020

In his first runway show for a cruise collection, Giorgio Armani touched down in the island nation of Japan, and brought with him even more of an island vibe.
“The collection is a condensed version of my style, which has remained consistent over the years — like an island in the fashion system,” the designer said. “The burnt, neutral colors and tactile, raw textures reference characteristic island landscapes.”
Even the runway itself resembled water flowing over sand, with clear Plexiglass panels covering a beige carpet and throwing ripple-like reflections onto the surrounding walls. The show began with looks in neutral shades, eventually moving on to more vibrant reds and blues. But each look was relaxed and easy, with lots of fluid shapes.
Armani also made ample use of soft, natural textures. Linen, silk and satin were accented with leather trim and sumptuous knits. Lightweight fabrics were often used in voluminous pieces, from oversized women’s blouses and flowing ponchos to pleated men’s trousers that gathered at the ankle like jogging pants.
The accessories were also big and bold. Wide belts with exaggerated buckles defined the waist of coats and pants, tortoiseshell necklaces were chunky and layered and brooches and earrings packed a punch

Valentino Resort 2020

“Romancity” reads the title of the inspiration book Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli brought with him from Rome for his resort presentation in New York on Wednesday evening. Intentional or not, it’s a multitiered title if ever there was one (and for a resort collection, no less). Piccioli, who loves to tout Valentino’s identity as a Roman couture house, photographed his look book at a lush garden in the center of the Eternal City, and drew inspiration from its voluptuous chic past.
Yet the title could be dissected into Romance City, and romance Gotham the designer did for WWD’s shoot, directing his models out to the Fifth Avenue border of Central Park, where nature and asphalt beautifully coexist, and where, urban Uber obsession aside, yellow taxis still deliver their iconic manufactured sunshine.
As for his Roman inspiration, Piccioli cited “the fantasy of Seventies extravagance…the moment before decadence.” He interpreted that moment in an exuberant lineup that at times wore the decade’s references obviously, including in some looks derived from specific pieces done by the house founder. Piccioli worked from photos and drawings rather than from the actual archival items. That way, he said, he achieves “a dream of the original” rather than a replica.

Camilla and Marc Resort 2020

For resort, Camilla Freeman-Topper and Marc Freeman wanted to explore the “uncomfortable tension” between “the dichotomy of elements between order and disorder.” In simpler terms, the duo decided to explore contrasts for their latest Camilla and Marc collection — sharp, signature tailoring to slightly oversize, slightly voluminous shapes or clean, monochromatic looks to busy, distorted floral printed silhouettes. The contrasts here weren’t so black and white, and the best came in the details. The yellow top stitch on an hourglass blue dress or contrasting hues on the gusset of their new cross-body Luna bag.
Freeman-Topper described the first look, a distorted floral printed silk cotton blouse with poet’s sleeves and matching car-wash hemmed, high-waisted pencil skirt, as a hero piece of the collection because it “talks directly to the inspiration in the balance of disconnection of order and disorder.” The playful print, designed in-house, clashed with its softer, flowy silhouette. But that was the goal. Meanwhile, an exaggerated, enlarged version of the distorted floral in tennis ball green printed on a white cotton day dress felt fresh and new. Throughout the remainder of the collection, tailoring continued to be a hallmark of the brand.
Overall, the collection held a more playful, experimental

Zac Posen Resort 2020

Zac Posen has had a whirlwind month. He’s currently in Japan celebrating 40 years of Brooks Brothers operations there, before jetting off to Hong Kong and Shanghai for various projects. He dressed a host of guests for the Met Gala, among them Nina Dobrev and Jourdan Dunn, in 3-D-printed “glass” dresses, for which he’s already fielded exhibition requests.
During the look book shoot for resort at his showroom last week, the designer didn’t discount the possibility of incorporating such 3-D-printed elements into his main line. After all, he’s an engineer in his own right — albeit of a different medium — creating garments at the intersection of design and fantasy.
His lineup was heavy on gowns that balanced drama with elegance. Though there were many, it wasn’t repetitive. An array of color, shoulder, sleeve and neck details provided plenty of interest. A black wide-collar silk faille gown featured seaming that perfectly accentuated the body. A pink moire number that could double as a coat had dramatic ruffles as elongated sleeves, while a lightly embroidered green dress kept the volume higher up with short puff sleeves. There was even a sporty accent to a voluminous ombre taffeta gown through paracord ties.
There were also

Burberry Pre-Spring 2020

Riccardo Tisci has been refining his vision for Burberry with each collection, and for pre-spring 2020 his woman has a multiplicity of moods: There’s the bourgeois lady, in her animal or fish print silks, faux fur and chain-handle bags and sharply tailored jackets with soft edges.
Alongside the elegant signora is the London kid, dressed in a Burberry football scarf, worn as a shrug over a denim jacket, or the punk in a short leather dress with fat silver grommets.
Tisci said he started designing the collection with “the breadth of the attitude of Burberry in mind, and this idea of uniforms. I wanted to start to play with more extreme versions of the classic and fashion sides that I’ve been focusing on with my work here.”

Tisci referenced “chic trench coats, super elegant fluid jersey gowns and sharp tailoring, as well as relaxed washed denim, crystal cocktail dresses and down jackets,” along with evolved versions of the bags and shoe styles that he introduced when he joined the house last year.
The handsome collection, like his previous ones, had something for everyone — mothers, daughters, fathers and sons, with standouts including silk blouses with cape details around the shoulders and down the sleeves,

Alberta Ferretti Resort 2020

MONTE CARLO — Alberta Ferretti knows her customers, and while she continues to deliver those dreamy and feather-light chiffon gowns that the designer herself admits have forged her identity, she is also seeking to add a “touch of eccentricity.”
Speaking ahead of her resort show here on Saturday evening, Ferretti said her recent increased attention to daywear continues ”with a more precise image,” as she works to offer sophisticated alternatives to the “strong women” who are her customers.
“There has been so much talk about streetwear, but I think there is a desire to be more eccentric and unique, to explore a more personal and special language. Women today are no longer afraid to dare,” said Ferretti.
The designer explained that she wanted to emphasize Italian craftsmanship. “In a global world, Italian fashion needs to continue to have its own identity and we need to talk about this.”
Paraded at the yacht club overlooking the sleek multimillion-dollar boats harbored below, it was “inevitable” for the collection to be inspired by the sea, or nature in general — a staple for Ferretti.
“Nature is what conveys emotions, a sense of life and beauty,” she said. Case in point: the chiffon gowns in the colors of the sea

Jonathan Simkhai Resort 2020

On Monday, a year and a half after Jonathan Simkhai first visited Sydney’s Bondi Beach on vacation, he returned to the birthplace of surf lifesaving to present his resort 2020 collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.
Staged at sunset at the North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club, one of Australia’s oldest surf clubs was founded in 1906 and reopened in 2013 after a modernist do-over by Sydney architectural firm Durbach Block Jaggers, the show and collection were inspired by what Simkhai calls the “magic hour.”
“When you’re with someone you love and it’s 5 o’clock and the sun’s setting and the person you’re with, their face is glowing and you have a drink in hand and you’re having the best time,” he explained backstage after the show. “I thought how can I make a woman feel like she can put her dress on and be in that moment?”
The answer apparently was via a skin-tight, blush pink napa leather flight suit, which was the collection’s departure point. This was followed by a series of leather wrap skirts, baggy trousers and sexy bralettes with criss-cross straps and tough chic hardware in tan, mustard and black and a jacquard jersey section featuring hand-painted “chain” and

Tory Burch Resort 2020

Tory Burch often looks homeward for inspiration. For resort, she started out musing on the family farm of her childhood. “I went back to American folk art, and where I grew up, Pennsylvania Dutch [country],” Burch said during a walk-through at her company’s headquarters. Yet lest the mind race to quaint costumes, she added a caveat: “That was the starting point — lightly referenced.”
That translates into a lineup that integrates expressive feminine elements with a robust earthiness, starting with a palette in which black and natural ivory play against russets, reds, deep greens and navy. Hearty tailoring belies a discreet Seventies vibe in clean-lined coats and jackets, often over A-line skirts. The most obvious folk-art references come through in floral motifs and craftwork, specifically embroidery and quilting, the latter handled, Burch said, “in a different way than everyone else has done it.” Case in point: a chic color-blocked coat in beige, green, gold and hot pink, horizontally quilted for a striped effect. Bold patterns carry throughout, as with large-scale, ebullient florals for a coat over a dress in a dark, almost sober, small floral. Worked in amidst the flowers and butterflies: a manipulated geometric or two, including a dress in

Louis Vuitton Cruise 2020

What a landing! The 2020 itinerant resort tour touched down at JFK on Wednesday evening, as Nicolas Ghesquière took his Louis Vuitton audience on a complicated first-class trip.
The much-hyped show took place at the much-hyped TWA Hotel, opening next week in the famous former TWA Flight Center designed in 1962 by Eero Saarinen as a marvel of mid-century architecture and abandoned in 2001 when the airline went kerplunk and was assimilated into American Airlines. The winged marvel of a building holds special resonance for Ghesquière, not only because he has long been architecture-obsessed but because the building provided his first impression of New York, in 1991.
“I’m old,” Ghesquière said with self-effacing charm backstage after the show, “so I landed here one trip. I always remember the place, here, this terminal. Arriving to this fantastic city…and at the same time, at this masterpiece of architecture.”
This proved a more high-profile arrival, the Flight Center now populated by a celeb-heavy throng of LV-clad revelers including Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas (just your typical honeymooners passing through JFK), as well as Emma Stone, Julianne Moore, Tracy Morgan, Jennifer Connelly, Willow Smith, Ruth Negga, Robyn, Indya Moore and even Armani loyalist Cate Blanchett.

Paolo Roversi to Photograph Pirelli’s 2020 Calendar

PAOLO ROVERSI TAKES ON THE CAL: The Pirelli Calendar has been moving away from sexiness to storytelling for the past few years and the 2020 edition may likely follow this course under Paolo Roversi’s watch.
The Italian photographer’s intense sepia-toned images have forged a unique style, combining realism and illusion, which have marked countless ad campaigns for brands ranging from Giorgio Armani to Vera Wang and portraits of a wide range of international women, from Rihanna, Björk, Annie Lennox and Tilda Swinton to Natalia Vodianova and Kate Moss, to name a few.
Italian media have reported that Roversi has been seen checking out sites in Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet, speculating that the tragic love story could be the theme of the calendar, which is known as The Cal.
At the end of 2017, Roversi inaugurated the “Storie” [“Stories” in English] exhibit in Milan, organized in conjunction with the opening of the second edition of the Photo Vogue Festival 2017. The exhibit retraced the professional path of Roversi, his use of 8×10 Polaroid film and outstanding attention to light effects.
Roversi follows Albert Watson, who photographed the 2019 calendar, lensing the likes of Gigi Hadid together with Alexander Wang, Misty Copeland, Laetitia Casta and

Chanel Cruise 2020

The invitation for Chanel’s cruise show was printed on a plain white card — symbolizing, perhaps, the blank page facing artistic director Virginie Viard as she prepared to write the next chapter in the history of the house that had been synonymous with Karl Lagerfeld for 36 years.
Guests arriving at the Grand Palais found a similarly low-key ambiance inside the venue. Its soaring steel-and-glass roof all but dwarfed the set, a retro train station where guests sat on wooden benches under signs bearing the names of cities that resonate in Chanel lore: Venice, Saint-Tropez, Rome or Edinburgh, among them.
An impulse kicked in to make a pun: All aboard the Chanel Express! But the space lacked the joyful effervescence of Lagerfeld’s bombastic sets, which invited guests to preen for selfies and journalists to conjure clichés about rocketships, icebergs, cruise liners or whatever phantasmagorical vision he dreamt up for the season.
“It’s very minimal,” one editor soberly observed. The press kit offered the first hint of change. A booklet, printed on glossy paper, featured images shot by Karim Sadli, marking the first time since 1987 that a photographer other than Lagerfeld had lensed the collection.
In it, hints of a lighter, more streamlined take

Prada Resort 2020

“Simplicity is rebellion.”
So said Miuccia Prada during a preview of the resort collection she showed on Thursday night. Prada referred specifically to the clothes, which she described as “naïve, cotton, simple,” but the thought extended to the event itself. At a moment when, in the luxury sweepstakes for sales and social media attention, her primary competition rents out major world monuments and airline terminals, Prada preferred to show at home. Or at one of her homes. In this case, her brand’s New York headquarters on 52nd Street overlooking the Hudson River. “I like to do the shows in my own spaces,” she said.
Yet while Prada may reject (for now at least) the kind of extravagant wanderlust of her competitors, this was no quiet little soiree. A star-studded guest list including Elle Fanning, Shailene Woodley, Uma Thurman, Naomi Watts, Joel Edgerton, Anderson Paak, Hailee Steinfeld, Marc Jacobs, Char Defrancesco and Sofia Coppola turned out, many reveling through four stages of festivities: boisterous pre-show cocktail, show, post-show informal dinner, after party.
Simple in its open concept and egalitarian flow — OK. Low-key — definitely not, offering an Instagrammable someone or something at every turn. Within that framework, Prada presented a lineup she characterized as simple

Dior Cruise 2020

MARRAKECH — Cultural appropriation is dead. Long live cultural appreciation!
That was the message of the Dior cruise show staged here on Monday night, which saw creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri collaborating with a host of guest designers from the African continent and beyond in a shared tribute to craftsmanship.
The location of the display, the remains of the magnificent El Badi Palace, spoke of ancient dynasties and rulers. The clothes themselves were a dialogue with the world of today, a celebration of globalization and inclusivity.
Celebrities including Jessica Alba, Shailene Woodley, Lupita Nyong’o and Diana Ross were among the roughly 800 guests who took in the mega-production, staged shortly after sunset around a water basin dotted with dozens of candles and seven flaming braziers.
To a hypnotic soundtrack of Jajouka musicians, accompanied by British electronic band The Orb, a diverse cast of models walked in more than 110 looks ranging from African wax separates to black evening gowns that carried a whiff of Yves Saint Laurent, the former Dior designer who considered Marrakech his second home.
Alba, flanked by her husband Cash Warren, was fresh off celebrating her 38th birthday the night before at a welcome dinner held at the neighboring Bahia Palace in a

Gucci to Hold Cruise 2020 Show in Rome

CLOSE TO HOME: Gucci is not traveling far for its cruise 2020 fashion show — instead, it has selected one of the most striking sites in Rome: the Capitoline Museums.
The show will be held May 28 and the choice of the location results from creative director Alessandro Michele’s ongoing interest in “the Old World,” said the company, “this time drawing from a place reminiscent of his childhood.”
Located on the Capitoline Hill, the museums display a large number of ancient Roman statues, inscriptions, and other artifacts; a collection of medieval and Renaissance art, and collections of jewels and coins, among others.
In line with his interests, most recently Michele shot the brand’s pre-fall 2019 collection in the archaeological parks of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Selinunte.
Previous Gucci Cruise shows were held at the Dia-Art Foundation in New York City; the Cloisters of Westminster Abbey in London; the Palatine Gallery at Pitti Palace in Florence, and last year, the Promenade Des Alyscamps in a Roman necropolis in the southern French city of Arles.
In addition, over the next two years the Florence-based company will make a donation to support the restoration project of the Rupe Tarpea, the Tarpeian Rock, a steep cliff of the southern summit

Max Mara to Hold Resort 2020 Show in Berlin

MAX MARA ON THE ROAD: Max Mara is once again taking its resort collection on the road. The Italian fashion brand will show its 2020 resort collection in Berlin on June 3 in a location that has yet to be revealed.
Last year Max Mara held its resort show at the Collezione Maramotti museum of contemporary art works in Reggio Emilia, Italy, where the company is based. Max Mara is owned by the Maramotti family.
Before that, Shanghai was the stage for the brand’s pre-fall 2017 collection, London for its resort 2016 collection and New York for its pre-fall 2015 lineup.
The decision to show in Berlin underscores the relevance of the German market for the brand, which is designed by creative director Ian Griffiths.
As reported, Prada and Louis Vuitton will show their resort 2020 and cruise collections in New York, on May 2 and 8, respectively.

Kelly Slater on Outerknown’s New Breitling Watch Collaboration, the 2020 Summer Olympics, and More

We caught up with surfing icon Kelly Slater in New York during the launch of the Superocean Heritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown watch, the result of a year-long collaboration between his clothing brand Outerknown and Breitling. Read our full interview below.

Men’s Journal: How did you team up to make this watch happen?
Kelly Slater: Breitling contacted us [Outerknown, the clothing brand Slater co-founded in 2015] about a year ago to talk about this idea and putting together a group of a squad with [pro surfers] Stephanie Gilmore and Sally Fitzgibbons, who are both long-time friends of mine. Breitling really wanted to represent what we mean to our sport, and give us the opportunity to include Outerknown by letting us design the watch bands.


How to Surf for the First Time

So what’s unique about the band?
It’s made with Econyl, a yarn made with recycling fishing nets pulled from the ocean and then re-spinning back into a threading. We’ve created jackets that use it so the whole thing can be recycled. That was part of our beginning and why we launched the brand.

You’ve made your own surfboards and wave machines, so what made you get into clothing?
I just knew that something smelled a little fishy in the way clothing was made, so to speak. There was an epiphany moment. I was doing a fast for six days, I was just drinking water and about four or five days into that, I had just the clearest thoughts ever. I thought I’ve got to find out where our clothes are made when I was with another clothing company. I’ve got to find out who makes the clothes and where they’re made and what goes into it, and I need to know that whole thing because it’s provided me with so much in my life and I don’t know really anything about it. So, I started asking questions and I started getting roadblocks.

This sounds like a conspiracy theory.
I would say that it actually is. I went to a guy who worked for that company who was an artist—I’d known the guy for 20 or 30 years and figured he’d tell me. I went to his office, and I said, “Hey, I want to talk to you about something. I feel like I can get the answer from you before anyone else.” And he goes, “I don’t think you’re going to like the answers.” And he literally stood up and went and shut his door to his office and he said, “Alright, you want to talk about this? You’re just not going to like what you hear, because they’re going to buy everything as cheaply as they possibly can and make it for as little as possible, with people who don’t get paid very well, and don’t have a living wage and all that.”

OUTERKNOWN_KELLY_SLATER_BTS

You’d think for a clothing brand co-owned by a world-famous athlete, your photo would be plastered all over the website. But it’s not.
There were thoughts of calling it Slater, but I just want it to be about the clothing and more about the ideas than it was about me. My goal was to make good clothes the right way and let that stand the test of time. To me, it was more about creating this brand than it was trying to promote myself. Look, I’m proud of what I’ve done. It’s allowed me to have the access to create this company and get people that believe in the things I believe in and see what this could do in an industry that’s allowed that to happen because of what I’ve done. So, of course, I’m very proud of my accomplishments. I didn’t necessarily want to go and run the risk of being cheesy and “go buy Slater stuff.”

So are you adding clothing designer to your resume?
Well, the Apex Trunk is probably my signature piece because that’s what I live in. I worked on all aspects of the design on that trunk, but I don’t have the time to go in there and work on everything. I’m happy with it being tied to me saying the Apex predator. To me, I want to be a great white shark. When I compete, I want to be that top guy. It’s surprising that it’s not all neon though—when I was a kid everything on my surfboards was all orange and green.

I read that if you compete in the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics, it might be your last competition?
Yes, I wouldn’t say it would be my last event. I’ll probably still surf events for five years after I compete here and there. But I’m looking at potentially next year being my last full-time competitive year. And if I made the Olympics, then I would probably still compete somewhat consistently in the beginning of that year 2020, just to keep myself fresh and alert on how I need to compete, so I won’t be nervous at that time.


The 65 Best Surf Spots in the World

What does it mean for surfing to make it into the Olympics?
I can clearly see either side of it. I could be totally fine without surfing in the Olympics and I can be totally behind it as well. I see the benefit of it, and I also see that we do have a world tour that determines the best surfer in the world each year over the course of a whole year and all different kinds of conditions and I think the best surfer of the year ends up being a world champion. The pressure that’s put on the Olympics, I think, is really going to make the cream rise to the top, because you’re going to have to be just so confident in your game and what you’re doing, and decisive about that on that day, that somebody who is just a natural is going to win that thing.

You’ve been known to chase waves around the world. How do you pinpoint where the surf’s going to be?
When I first started, I had no idea. I would wake up in the morning when I was a little kid I’d take the wax off my board and my friends and I would ride our bike as fast as you can down to the beach. And most days in Florida it was nothing. As a kid, I didn’t know what made waves, I just knew that sometimes I’d wake up and the waves are big, and the wind is good. Then as a teenager, I meet a guy named Sean Collins who had a thing called Wave Track, which turned into what is now probably the biggest surf forecasting site in the world called Surfline. I was good friends with him from the time I was about 13 or 14, and he used to show me swell maps and how he would get weather maps from, say, Australia in June and July. He would be able to read what the storms are doing near New Zealand and he would know 10 days later those were going to hit the California coast. So he would have a good idea of size and interval. And then you look at local wind charts to see how it’s going to be affecting the local conditions.


The Essentials: 5 Must-have Items for Surfing

I started to learn this stuff as a kid and then, through the websites and the apps that those guys have created over the years, it’s basically almost like you can self-teach any of this stuff. You go look at it and you get a good idea about how it works. But luckily there are still a few secrets about how to read them, because I love to go to Fiji and some of the websites will give an incorrect forecast and people don’t understand how to read it. If you know how to read it, it’s really obvious.

Once you hang up surfing competitively, what will you be doing?
I would say for probably a year or two I’ll travel more than I do right now. More short [surf] trips, just strike missions, like chase a swell. Right now I’ve been injured for the last year and a bit so I haven’t traveled, I haven’t chased a lot of swells down. But when I’m done competing full-time I’ll just have my eye constantly on what the ocean is doing around the world, and if I see a good swell in Namibia in July, I might go for two days. Last week, I was going to go to the Northwest coast of Africa and surf but I just kind of didn’t have the time.

Who is the next Kelly Slater?
The next guy is a kid name Eli Hanneman from Maui, he’s 15 and he’s unbelievable.

Jesus Christ Descends From Heaven To Endorse Bernie Sanders. But First, Will Kanye Run in 2020?

2015-09-19-1442691086-5250589-HEAVEN.jpg

Burlington, Vermont – In a move of theological and cosmic significance the magnitude of which can’t be expressed in words, the son of God descended from Heaven specifically to wish Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders luck in 2016. The two exchanged words briefly, after Jesus Christ told Sanders they share the same views on wealth inequality and Bernie’s plan “gets it.”

After God’s meeting with Sanders, fivethirtyeight reported a new poll showing Clinton holding firm on her lead nationally.

The news of God’s eagerly awaited visit to Earth was overshadowed, however, by a decision that stunned the political world.

The same day the Messiah endorsed Sanders, media and politicos focused only on Kanye West’s official decision to run.

Yes, he’s running folks, and he’s serious.

The famed rapper told fans and the media via Twitter and skywriting above Malibu that he plans on winning the White House in 2020.

“This is huge,” says an anonymous Democratic strategist. “Kanye’s appeal is genuine and his ability to connect with Americans and bring excitement to progressives is something lacking today.”

Some observers weren’t too enthusiastic and one Republican strategist displayed skepticism. “Yes, he’s a popular entertainer,” said the GOP official. “But Americans are too smart to back a candidate simply because of ratings. This is America, people.”

In a bold move separating himself from Hillary Clinton, West and an unnamed Silicon Valley tech firm introduced a computer firewall program called “Convenience.”

A spokesman for West said the introduction of his computer anti-virus product isn’t a reference to ongoing scandal. “It’s convenient, ok,” snapped the spokesman for Kanye West. “That’s the only reason we named it ‘Convenience,’ not for any other reason.”

TMZ is hosting an official launch party televised globally next month at the Staple Center in Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.

As a side note to the previous story, God’s meeting with Bernie Sanders reversed 70 years of global warming.

In other news, Americans are eating more kale. More on the nutritious superfood shortly.

Kanye West Is Running For President In 2020

Kanye West, greatest human on earth, announced Sunday that he will be running for president of the United States of America in 2020.

“I have decided in 2020 to run for president,” West said Sunday at the VMAs. The announcement naturally led to huge applause for the future leader of the free world. 

The announcement was made during West’s acceptance of the Video Vanguard Award. As it is only 2015, there will still have to be an interim president elected in the meantime in 2016. 

West also discussed additional things during the speech, such as his grocery shopping habits, the children, art and a bunch of other stuff. But none of that matters now. 

Update — 11:18 p.m.: Khloe is down.
