Best Beard Trimmers for Men in 2020

What do you and your razor have in common? Neither of you has seen the light of day in months. At first, growing out a beard can feel like a pleasant escape—not unlike, say, working from home. But as the days add up, you don’t look or feel your best—even if you follow the best beard-growing practices to the letter. You realize this isn’t a vacation: It’s going to take some work. Enter the best beard trimmers for men.

Before you start hacking, understand two things. First, facial hair grows at difference speeds, says JayR Mallari, a barber at Legacy Barber Studio in Walnut Creek, CA. “Typically, mustache and chin hair grow faster than cheek hair,” he says, “so you might need to trim more in those areas to get an even beard length.”

Second, the line between sophisticated and Sasquatch runs right through your Adam’s apple. “Go right through the middle of it,” Mallari says. “That’s the perfect spot for your neckline.”

Whether you’re rocking a full quarantine beard, a sporty new mustache, or a simple sprinkling of stubble, all facial hair needs regular tending with the right tools.

Here are 15 professional beard trimmers will help tame your face and spruce up your look.

Best Everyday Beard Trimmer: Wahl 5 Star Cordless Magic Clipper

Wahl Cordless Magic Clip

Wahl got into the hair business more than a century ago, so it’s no wonder that the brand is something of a legend when it comes to trimmers. The original version of this no-nonsense tool has been a favorite among professional barbers and shave experts because of its straightforward approach and high-quality blades. The updated cordless version with eight attachments combines old-school reliability with modern ease.

Best New Beard Trimmer: King C Gillette Beard Trimmer

The King C Gillette is the best new trimmer for 2020.
Gillette

 

Named after the founder of the iconic shave brand, this new line is easy to like. Crafted by Braun, this shaver includes three combs for a variety of beard lengths that range from 1mm to 21 mm; a stubble comb with fixed length; a short beard comb with five different length settings; and a long beard comb with five more settings. Or just use it without the combs for a closer shave. And if dry skin and itchiness are issues, you’ll want to add a few drops of the brand’s new King C Gillette Beard Oil ($ 13), too. Or make your own beard oil. The lightweight formula absorbs easily as it softens scratchy beard hair and moisturizes dry skin underneath.

The dry shave, carbon-steel T-blade is ideal for etching out lines and designs so you can get creative, or stay straight, depending on your mood.

Coarse beards need special care, and this sophisticated shaver prevents bumps and irritation that often come with the territory. Made for both face and hair, it doesn’t require add-on tools, as the snap-on blade easily adjusts to suit your preferred length.

Swimwear Trend 2020: Staycation Mode

WWD style director Alex Badia and his team styled via Zoom in a series of meetings, including a virtual “run-through” with the photographer unpacking clothes two days prior. On shoot day, the model was directed via Zoom on which look to put on and how to style it, like showing her a Grace Kelly reference to tie the scarf and what props to try, which were sent to her direct from Target. There was a Zoom meeting with the makeup artist two days before the shoot, who did sample looks on herself and sent new, unused makeup to the photographer. The makeup artist did a FaceTime tutorial with the model on how to apply the makeup one day prior to the shoot, and again on shoot day, while the model styled her hair as directed by Alex Badia.

As for the location: The shoot took place on the photographer’s rooftop to make distancing easy (and after he had been quarantining for six weeks). The result: a modern look at nostalgia in these buy-now styles, from pouf-sleeve tops and high-waisted silhouettes to playful prints.

From the most recent digital press days, stripes have emerged as a bold classic for fall 2020. Whether consumers will gravitate toward minimalist or maximalist dress once lockdown measures are lifted, stripes are a safe middle ground. Here, examples from Ganni, Acne Studios and Mozh Mozh.

J. Cole’s Dreamville Festival 2020 Announces Cancellation

2018 Bumbershoot

Source: Suzi Pratt / Getty

The Coronavirus Pandemic strikes again. J. Cole’s annual Dreamville Festival for 2020 has officially been cancelled.

The announcement was made on Friday (May 15) and tickets will be refunded.

The decision was inevitable in the wake of the spread of COVID-19 throughout the United States. The second annual festival was scheduled to go down once again at Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina in August. This was actually an alternate date since it was originally scheduled for April 4 until it was postponed to August 29 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

But out of consideration for the safety of festival goers and the community, the decision was made to cancel the event this year, with plans to return back again in 2021.

“After much deliberation and careful monitoring of the current situation, we have decided to cancel Dreamville Festival 2020,” reads a press statement. “Although we originally hoped it would be possible to bring you the festival this August, the ongoing uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic has made this timeline no longer possible. This decision has been extremely difficult to make, but the safety of our fans, artists, and staff is always our top priority, and nothing will ever take precedence over your well-being.”

Rather safe than sorry, always.

Reportedly, all ticket purchases will be refunded by May 22 (it has been noted that it will take 7-10 days for the funds to return via your original form of payment).

Check out the full statement below.

Dear Dreamville Family: 
After much deliberation and careful monitoring of the current situation, we have decided to cancel Dreamville Festival 2020. Although we originally hoped it would be possible to bring you the festival this August, the ongoing uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic has made this timeline no longer possible. This decision has been extremely difficult to make, but the safety of our fans, artists, and staff is always our top priority, and nothing will ever take precedence over your well-being.
All 2020 event ticket holders, including those that previously requested a refund, will be automatically refunded on, or before May 22nd, and it will take 7-10 days for the funds to be returned to your original method of payment if you purchased your tickets through Front Gate Tickets. We understand that this is a difficult time for many and sincerely apologize to those who were waiting on their refund as we worked through unforeseen delays in processing due to the pandemic. 
If you purchased a physical ticket through an official street team member, retail outlet, or military sale, you must request a refund by filling out the form HERE.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this. Please stay safe, healthy, and sane so we can reunite with you in 2021.

Meet the Graduates: Standout Senior Collections From the Class of 2020

Fashion colleges across the country this year have canceled their senior thesis collection shows — a tradition that many graduating students weigh heavier than commencement. These longstanding shows, typically held en masse in mid-May, act as a young designer’s coming-out party to the industry — with some standout collections even leading to immediate store orders or jobs with prestigious labels.
The class of 2020 has seen this tradition upended by the coronavirus crisis. In mid-March, many students moved back to their childhood homes to complete their thesis collections and finish coursework remotely. They were left with limited materials and equipment — forcing some to alter their collections and adapt to their surroundings. For students now living at home, it remains unclear when they can resume an independent life and look for job opportunities.

What you can't see can hurt you. Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss (Us, Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale) stars in a terrifying modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal's classic monster character. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer, NBC's The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO's Euphoria). But when Cecilia's abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.

Alexander McQueen RTW Fall 2020

By now, Sarah Burton could probably do a book about the traditional crafts of the British Isles. From the English Cluny lace on her wedding gown for Kate Middleton to the crinkled Irish “beetled” linen for spring 2020, she’s used her encyclopedic knowledge to create clothes with couture-like workmanship.
This season’s research took her to Wales, where she soaked up the romantic poetry of Dylan Thomas, Welsh national costumes, the healing power of the color red and the folk art traditions of graphic quilts and hand-carved love spoons.
All of it made its way into this sweetheart of a collection, full of high-low hems, blanket check layers, graphic tailoring and enough heraldic beading, pink quilting and red heart motifs to evoke Alice’s tempestuous queen. (Could another Disney fashion collaboration be in the works?)
Indeed, this was a another love letter to handcraft, no more so than the spectacular multicolored quilted coat with figurative motifs of dove, horse and panther. A similar design was stitched over 10 years from 1842 by master tailor James Williams, on display at the National Museum of Wales. Like his, Burton’s was made from salvaged materials — but from past McQueen collections. It was a beauty. (There was also

Joseph RTW Fall 2020

Susana Clayton worked loose, masculine tailoring into a modern and sleekly feminine lineup, mostly in camel, gray and a range of ruddy browns. She threw in the season’s musts — shearling and fringes — with measure, adding a bit of argyle as well. The diamond shapes were elongated — molded to the Joseph aesthetic — appearing on a long sweater, a widely pleated skirt that fell mid-calf and a humongous, knit scarf.
WWD Critique: A year into the job, Clayton has proved to be a natural fit for Joseph, simplifying the brand message with uncluttered cuts and using layering to add depth.

Hyke RTW Fall 2020

Cars could be seen passing by through the floor-to-ceiling windows, but inside the cavernous white-and-black space where Hyke staged its fall show there were only models and photographers. Like so many events, the show was canceled to audience members due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, but it was live-streamed on the brand’s web site.
Designers Yukiko Ode and Hideaki Yoshihara continued on their path of reinventing military classics and workwear with a modern touch, but their latest offering was in many ways softer and less structured than some recent seasons. Voluminous outerwear took centerstage, with elements of trenchcoats showing up on billowing ponchos and coat dresses with extra-long sleeves. Elegant separates such as ankle-length fringed skirts and crisp, high-neck blouses were sometimes accessorized with knit pinafore-like pieces with long fringe and high funnel necks. Some stopped at the chest while others extended to the knee.
Hyke is also known for its athleticwear collaborations, having previously worked with The North Face. This season saw a series of T-shirts, jackets and sneakers by Adidas mixed in with the more high fashion items. In other nods to functionality that still fell squarely in the fashion realm, the designers played with the idea of the

Yeezy RTW Fall 2020

Well, it wasn’t bourgeois.
It was brilliant. Kanye West’s stealthy takeover of Paris Fashion Week was brilliant in its last-minute buzz factor. Brilliant in its two-part punch, a religious event that prepared the way for the second coming, a quasi-religious fashion event. Brilliant in playing the kid card. (North West’s rap performance, adorable or irritating, depending upon where you stand on the grump-o-meter.) Brilliant in West’s iron-cast, I’m-a-star knowledge that — no matter the time (9:30 p.m.) or prior negative Yeezy experiences (Roosevelt Island) — if he built it, we would come.
We did, though a few opted out of Part One, the Sunday Service at the Bouffes du Nord theater. That proved to be a glorious 90 minutes of positivity that was, remarkably, at least to the uninitiated in the one-time congregation, not about Kanye at all. The choir leader referenced “Mr. West” once, a good 30 minutes into the concert, after which he did a brief solo. But for the most part, West faded into the 120 incredibly gifted singers of his Sunday Service choir, who lifted their voices in praise of a different Almighty.
Soon after the Sunday Service was confirmed, rumors started swirling about a show — Yeezy Season

Xuly Bët RTW Fall 2020

Lamine Kouyaté was making sustainable fashion and championing diversity long before it became a thing. The cult Nineties designer, who originally hails from Mali, returned to the Paris runway after a 15-year hiatus — he had a three-year stint showing in New York — chose as the venue a charity shop, the shelves groaning with mismatched crockery and secondhand books.
Rossy de Palma and Michelle Elie, both fixtures at Xuly Bët back in the day, walked the runway. Kouyaté paraded a coed collection combining his signature body-con — patchworked together with red stitching, the wrap ballet cardigan a recurrent style — with denim, puffer jackets and upcycled check suiting splashed with block lettering in gold. Tailored pieces and crisp white shirts were styled under stretch cardigans, and boxy jean jackets with big metallic buttons.
It read like a celebration of eclectic street style — the kind not dominated by giant logos and broadcast on Instagram, but that people might wear on the street. “It’s about youth, about the future,” the designer said after the show.
Kouyaté may be largely unfamiliar to the younger set, but he already knows the ropes, and given the increased exposure of African designers and sustainable fashion in Paris

Tre by Natalie Ratabesi RTW Fall 2020

Natalie Ratabesi drew on her personal style for fall, offering a lineup that mixed boyishness and elegance, relayed with loose jeans paired with suit jackets — cropped, double-breasted ones, extra wide and extra short. Her breed of coolness verges on rock-chic, but of an elevated sort, with distinctive play on volumes. Bulking up jeans in interesting ways, on the thighs, for example, she reined them in, too, with vertical seams in one case. Dresses were spaghetti-strap cocktail chic, in pinks and reds, with light, flowy skirts, sometimes pleated. Mini jumpsuits were charming, original and sexy — with comfy pockets.
WWD Critique: Stylish and original, the lineup conveyed cool-girl fashion without letting things get intimidating — a modern proposal.

Gauchere RTW Fall 2020

With Brutalist architecture as her starting point, creative director Marie-Christine Statz sent out a collection dominated by structured silhouettes with cinched waists, wide shoulders and ample sleeves as their common denominator.
The gray, black and sand-toned color palette was a fitting canvas to highlight construction and set off the varied surface textures of the fabrics like rough wool, cady and grainy crêpe. These were enhanced with satin lapel detailing, adding interest to minimalist silhouettes that were slightly offset, as is her label’s wont, thanks to visible tucks.
Belts crossed the body on many of the tailored silhouettes, buttoned at an angle on a wide-leg jumpsuit to striking effect, while dresses that verged on the severe had subtle draping at the waist or capped sleeves, an outsized coat two sets of sleeves, all providing understated drama. Leather fringing created movement on a full-length skirt or as a toggle that hung down the back of a simple halter dress in charcoal gray.
The only ornament came by way of statement jewelry pieces created in collaboration with Samuel François, with giant gold brooches in the form of letters, bangles and outsized earrings punctuating certain looks.

Playing with contrasts, Mantù juxtaposed a refined sartorial elegance with a touch of feminine, eccentric flamboyance. While double-breasted coats, sleeveless dresses worn with fluid blouses and skirt suits were crafted from classic tailoring fabrics, a chic pajama set, a cotton shirt tucked into a leopard print skirt and a coat cut in a hourglass silhouette were all peppered by a cascade of feathers.
WWD Critique: While respecting the brand’s main goal, offering modern women a practical yet chic round-the-clock wardrobe, this season Mantù succeeded in injecting a new, cool vibe into its fresh, approachable lineup.

Maje RTW Fall 2020

Judith Milgrom pictured her imagined Maje girl dressed in sequins in the middle of an afternoon, either because she was getting ready to hit the town or had just returned home. So, for someone who likes to party, but also works, Milgrom thought up a dressy and easy lineup that felt youthful, with autumn-toned shorts suits, flattering floral dresses that stopped at the thighs, all-black bomber jackets covered in sequins and tweed vest and shorts ensembles. Adding a more masculine flavor, she also offered a hefty, shadow plaid workwear shirt, with lilac touches, and the season’s must, shearling — on the collar of an aviator jacket.
WWD Critique: Milgrom tackles her mandate of championing French girl style at home and abroad with consistency, offering another cute collection for fall that ticked off a number of the season’s bourgeois trends.

Rosie Assoulin RTW Fall 2020

Coming off of her first official pre-fall season, Rosie Assoulin proposed fall as a response to the call of the prior collection. Where pre-fall’s strength was its lightness, fall’s was its focus on the colder season. The designer added modern twists to classics with heavy weighted plaid wools; for instance, enveloping opera coats and blanket-y ponchos or a coated cotton and tartan coat dress and high-waisted and belted trousers. Assoulin juxtaposed this tension with a variety of dramatic silk gazar, double duchess satin and silk file evening gowns; 3-D appliqué daisies, raw scalloped edges and a vibrant palette added the fashion whimsy the designer is known for.
WWD Critique: Rosie Assoulin offered divine tension within voluminous, couture-inspired shapes through heavy weighted wool outerwear and energetic eveningwear offerings for fall.

Magda Butrym RTW Fall 2020

Magda Butrym never ceases to be inspired by the Eighties and for fall she kept her brand’s party spirit alive with plenty of mini-sequin numbers, pleated corsets featuring vintage-style floral patterns and chain embellishments or more standout body-hugging dresses with myriad ruffles embroidered on them.
By now, these are pieces that feel familiar yet still as exciting as ever — Butrym’s hip, Instagram-savvy clientele is not likely to tire of her statement occasionwear anytime soon.
But it was the new, more day-appropriate pieces that made for the more interesting part of the collection: There was plenty of tailoring, mannish coats with big shoulders, balloon-shaped pants and leather outerwear that had a retro feel and also highlighted the technical side to Butrym’s work.

Chanel RTW Fall 2020

Who isn’t rooting for Virginie Viard at Chanel? So after her show on Tuesday morning, there’s no easy way to say it: Confusion reigned. Following a beautiful, deftly focused couture outing in January, for fall Viard sent out a confounding lineup that stunned in its disarray. The disorder started from the first look out. Make that a pair of looks, as two models walked together Armani-style, only without the sartorial connection that his duets typically share. One wore a light green skirt suit, the other, a sporty jacket over a lace cropped top and wide pants, a row of brass buttons unbuttoned up the side of each leg.
In her show notes, Viard referred to the pants as jodhpurs. They turned into a rare unifying theme. Others were a scalloped motif; folkloric, “seven-league” boots inspired by a pair Karl Lagerfeld owned, and a general sense of transition-in-progress to a sportswear sensibility. One can argue the merits of such a shift for Chanel, but not on the strength of this collection.
Overall, Viard seemed to embrace an anything-goes attitude. Literally, as some attractive suits and dresses got lost in a cacophony of random thoughts. Would-be Jolie Madame suits, only slit high in front.

Rahul Mishra RTW Fall 2020

Rahul Mishra prefers to call it “easy to wear” — his collection of embellished suits and dresses, some embroidered with floral and tropical forest scenes, others carrying fringes of tiny, hand-crocheted tree leaves. Even pale, sequined monochrome numbers were rich in detail. His vision celebrates hand craftsmanship with clothing made over dozens of hours, rather than the thousands it takes for his couture pieces. Sleeveless, tiered tent dresses in silk with sheer insets were also a carryover from the couture line, in solids, powder blue or daffodil yellow — more convincingly “easy.”
WWD Critique: Mishra is a strong champion for the slow-going, luxury route as an answer to the sustainability challenge, but given the difficulty of wearing artwork, the simpler options were most effective.

Miu Miu RTW Fall 2020

Near the close of a fashion month that has felt like the world ending as we know it — between coronavirus anxiety and Tuesday’s pension fund protest sending armed police into the street, making parts of Paris resemble a war zone once again — Miuccia Prada gave us a moment of pure escape at Miu Miu.
Turning her show venue into a theater with plush patterned carpeting, red velvet seats and rose-tinted columns, she set the stage for a collection that was a reminder of “charm as positivity,” as she put it in her show notes, and really, the power of fashion to spark joy.
Not dressing to succeed, to impress or even to defy, dressing for oneself was what the collection was about, and how a spiky mary jane pump, jeweled hair pin or the unexpected pairing of a sailor top and a long, glossy black leather skirt, can make a day brighter. That’s why we all got into this crazy business, right?
Watching the beautiful parade of long, lean coats, some with high set rows of gold military buttons, and tiny velvet back bows adding childlike reverie, the ankle skimming skirts slit to the thigh with blazers cinched over top, and

Lacoste RTW Fall 2020

For her third effort at the helm of the French sports label, Louise Trotter zeroed in on the relationship between René Lacoste and his wife, French golf champion Simone Thion de La Chaume. “They were both powerful people in their own right who came together and complemented each other. Their relationship, in their contrasts, was very harmonious,” she said after a coed show that blended the codes of golf and the brand’s tennis heritage.
She recast many of the brands signatures — track pant, trenchcoat and of course, the polo shirt that will come in a lusher double-knit version — in a palette of sophisticated bright colors, blowing out the proportions to telegraph ease in fit and in fabrics. “Today, luxury is comfort,” she said. “Performance can be how you feel, that you get a great fit, that you can wear it day after day and it still looks good.” Cutting much closer to the body, this more tailored but still relaxed silhouette felt in step with this season’s return to elegance while staying true to the brand’s sportier side. One russet colored suit, seen on a female and later male model, was striking.
Golfing touches were blended throughout, like the sleeveless

By Fang RTW Fall 2020

One foot in the West, one foot in the East and her heart set on making a mark further afield is one way to describe Shanghai-based designer Fang Yang. After presenting her first couture in the French capital last summer, she showed her By Fang ready-to-wear line during the fall women’s wear collections, as part of a commercial push toward Europe — she has recently set up a studio in Paris — the Middle East and North America.
The designer took cues from the palette of often-overlooked Bauhaus textile artist Anni Albers and prettily spun origami — a longstanding inspiration — in the construction and decoration of a lineup of smart daywear pieces. For example, on a classic blazer, geometric inserts created curves that hugged the waist, while the placket of a shirt was folded into intricate triangles. But she also strayed away from formal folds with success, leaving fabric to drape naturally. It turned a parka into a cape-analogue, one of the more memorable pieces.
Already sold in retailers such as Beams in Japan and at some 40 doors in China, including its own French Concession flagship store, the line retails for between 400 euros for a crisp poplin blouse with

Cartier to Sponsor A Women’s Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai

 
FOCUS ON WOMEN: Cartier, the star label of Compagnie Financière Richemont, is sponsoring a women’s pavilion at the upcoming Expo 2020 Dubai that runs from Oct. 20 to April 10, 2021.
The pavilion will highlight stories of men and women who have contributed to gender equality and empowering women with a focus on milestones in women’s rights and challenges facing women, according to a statement revealing the move. 
“The Women’s Pavilion, in collaboration with Cartier, is setting a needed standard for corporations to rethink their approach to gender advocacy—and is a powerful platform to cascade the gender equality message to the world,” said Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, United Nations under secretary general and executive director of U.N. Women. She and Amal Clooney are supporting the event, Cartier said in its statement, without providing further details.
The pavilion will highlight “crucial roles that women have long played as linchpins of their communities and drivers of economies and underscores Expo 2020 Dubai’s firm commitment to empowering all women to drive their own development and create a better future for us all,” said Reem Al Hashimy, United Arab Emirates minister of state for international cooperation and director general of Expo 2020 Dubai bureau.

Yves Salomon RTW Fall 2020

A new addition to the Yves Salomon silhouettes this season was the salmon-colored tags coming with each fur garment, printed with the company’s newly established “Resource Pact.”
“We’re committing ourselves as a company to drastically reducing the production of animal fur, focusing instead on reusing existing furs,” said the furrier, pointing out a black astrakhan coat that was made using leftover pelts. “Before each collection, it’s now mandatory for the whole team to sit down and think about how we can reuse what we already have so I can limit our purchases of new fur.”
The furrier has also repositioned the brand to include a bigger selection of sheepskin pieces, which now represents 50 percent of the collection, compared to around 20 percent five years ago. “A lot of wholesalers have become fur free, so we had to adapt our range in order to continue working with them,” Salomon said. The sheepskin pieces were treated in edgy ways: a cream sheepskin jacket was covered in a dark blue tie-dye motif, while a glossy nylon white puffer jacket had a removable sheepskin collar.
The chicest pieces of the collection were the leather silhouettes, a new focus for the brand: Boxy leather shirts and long

Galvan London RTW Fall 2020

Galvan has built a thriving business based on its modern, fuss-free take on the evening dress, but now the label is starting to look at occasion dressing from many different angles and evolving its offer into a full ready-to-wear collection, complete with more separates and tailoring.
For fall, they looked at the bold colors and cosmic references in conceptual artist Julian Charrière’s work. They translated them into abstract prints splashed all over new, more laid-back wrap dresses; shiny lamé blouses with matching leggings that had a fun, disco feel, and striking georgette fabrics with metallic speckles that featured on shirts and gowns.
New versions of the label’s popular slipdresses, reworked in straight cuts to fit a wider range of body types, were another welcome addition.
“We wanted to show new aspects to the brand, but nothing is ever too fluffy. We always focus on timeless pieces that can make women feel good straight away,” said Anna-Christin Haas.
WWD Critique: Familiar shapes, including corseted jumpsuits and satin, body-hugging dresses, were still among the strongest contenders. But the new range of separates fit right in to the label’s glam universe and kept things fresh.

Reese Cooper RTW Fall 2020

Still energized from his debut during the Paris men’s shows in January, Los Angeles-based Reese Cooper was back with a collection for women — a line developed on demand from female friends who liked his upscale, utilitarian-flavored streetwear but wanted more fitted shapes. He remade a vintage sportswear jacket with high-end wool fabric and added extra details: a hook here, an extra pocket there. Same for workwear trousers — slapping on extra pockets in places, for convenience and style. A snug translucent puffer jacket in a thermo-reactive material carried futuristic vibes, and he paired it with a long, bright blue skirt that added flow, while the drawstring waist kept things from getting too fancy.
WWD Critique: It’s early days, but Cooper’s star is clearly on the rise; here he offered another inventive exercise in elevating streetwear — his unpretentious breed of elegance feels relevant.

Louis Vuitton RTW Fall 2020

Walking into the courtyard of the Louvre museum after a season dominated by fears of the coronavirus, and yet another day of anti-government protests that snarled traffic in Paris, you were struck by the impervious majesty of the place.
In its eight centuries of existence, the palace has seen its share of coronations and revolutions. Surely, this too shall pass?
The Louis Vuitton show venue was a simple black box with wooden flooring, and the guest list had been reduced by a third due to the coronavirus outbreak. The world’s biggest luxury brand was going sober, it appeared.
It turned out Nicolas Ghesquière has been thinking about history, too. As the show began, a screen lifted to reveal a vast podium filled with 200 characters dressed in costumes spanning five centuries – to the front and left, you could distinguish what appeared to be Britain’s Queen Elizabeth I.
It was a breathtaking tableau, worthy of a Hollywood production — the costumes designed by Milena Canonero, who worked with Sofia Coppola on “Marie Antoinette.” Yet rather than tap into France’s storied past, as he famously did with his spring 2018 collection of brocade frock coats, Ghesquière used it as a jumping off point for a

Shiatzy Chen RTW Fall 2020

“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players,” wrote William Shakespeare, but Wang Chen Tsai-Hsia’s collection negated the idea of the Shiatzy Chen customer being only a bit player. The designer said she’d drawn inspiration from Eastern and Western theater, focusing on the larger than life wardrobe of its actors, on- and off-stage.
Presented in one-to-one appointments, rather than a show, the brand’s labor-intensive craftsmanship shone. In pictures or see at catwalk speeds, the overall impression would have been of a lineup that taps the Western feminine mid-century tropes seen elsewhere this season. In person, a host of details jumped out. The way different types of lace were layered to achieve a 3-D effect on a shoulder. A double collar took cues from a traditional Chinese one and was layered in a trompe-l’oeil combination with a necklace neckline. It wasn’t all perfect: a couple of jacquards — a jumbled pattern of stages, operatic headdresses, fans and flowers — stumbled, particularly as stately gowns.
The more attractive silhouettes were no doubt the ones balancing extensive handiwork and traditional Chinese cuts with contemporary fits and lengths. Among the standouts were a great coat cut from a padded material that

Thom Browne RTW Fall 2020

If the rising waters at Balenciaga left one with a sense of doom and gloom, along came Thom Browne’s ark to save the day with childlike reverie.
Here’s the setup: Showing men’s and women’s on the runway together for the first time, the designer put the sexes on equal footing — literally — in sensible, block heel Ghillie boots. It was a good move.
Gone were women in dizzying platform shoes having to be escorted off the runway after feeling faint. Gone, too, were the hobble skirts and bound arms that have on occasion, suggested a misogynistic blind spot. Instead, strolling the runway wonderland of snow, were matched his-and-her model sets, dressed identically to tailored perfection in skirts, dresses and suits.
But, since they all wore black veils over their faces (fastened with tiny hair pins, each painstakingly affixed with a signature Thom Browne red, white and blue ribbon), it was difficult to tell which was which, and that was the point. Thanks to Janelle Monáe (sitting front row), Billy Porter, Laverne Cox and many more trailblazers, it doesn’t really matter anymore.
Playing to the storyline, each model carried a different animal-shaped leather handbag. There were 33 in total in Browne’s zootopia — giraffes,

Hermès RTW Fall 2020

If ever there were a season when it would have been easy for Hermès to trot out its heritage full gallop, it would be this one, when everyone from Michael Kors to Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing are feeling horsey, and turning out bourgeois tailoring, blanket coats and capes.
But the house has always set its own pace apart from the whims of seasonal trends. So instead, Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski decided to pare the women’s wear back to a graphic essence. In keeping with the Hermès 2020 theme, “Innovation in the Making,” she presented a “manifest of purity,” as she called it, on a set of striped vertical bars reminiscent of horse jump poles.
Working in Piet Mondrian’s strict vocabulary of primary colors, she created a baseline for an Hermès wardrobe, including more options in non-leather or using minimal-leather (with the growing animal-loving luxury class in mind, perhaps?). Some looks came in both, well positioning the brand for changing values around consumption, and offering more accessible pieces as it courts customers with new product categories, including its first line of lipsticks bowing March 4.
Canvas raincoats with cape collars, contrast quilting and shearling lapels struck a preppy note, as did silk skirts with linear pattern play

Celine RTW Fall 2020

Hedi Slimane has carved out his Celine ethos decisively and unapologetically — he mines the bourgeois Seventies. Period. In the past he’s done it with a focus on a single look. Last season it was jeans and a jacket, and before that, culottes. For fall, he offered a veritable lexicon, at least for women, of every look you can possibly think of from the polished side of the decade. For men, his focus was tighter.
Slimane’s show notes referred to the collection as “unisex”, and said, “the men’s looks can be for women and vice versa, including the bags.” (He brought back the Sulky from 1966, which looked great.) Yet while there was very clear crossover — the frilled blouse was an essential component for both — they each played to different archetypes of the era. Once again, the women depicted the chic bourgeoisie. They wore pretty bow-neck shirtdresses with fluid skirts; trim jackets over those frilled blouses and skinny flared pants, walking shorts, or skirts from mini to mid-calf and an impressive array of coats. Slimane’s ideal man is a cool rock god with gentle dandy persona, in polished, lean silhouettes. Jackets anchored the looks for both women and men,

Rick Owens RTW Fall 2020

You might have gathered from his galavanting across the California desert in a Moncler kitted-out Airstream trailer (and showing off his killer abs on Instagram), that Rick Owens, the once geeky kid from Porterville, has been on a bit of a nostalgic trip lately. He’s mined his Mixtec heritage and the rock gods of his youth for his runways, first Kiss designer Larry LeGaspi, and now Gary Numan, godfather of electronica and star of the sublimely Rick-titled 2016 doc, “Android in La La Land.”
In true form, the designer contacted Numan, humbly asking if he could remix some tunes for his show soundtrack. And he said “yes,” opening up the floodgates for Owens to explore his teendom in the dystopian Eighties, when Numan’s calculated artifice railed against “the banality of a decaying world” — not unlike the one we’re living in today, plagued by killer viruses and apathetic politicians.
“He’s always considered a C-list David Bowie…but I like that he was more obscure and more underground…he is repetitive, hypnotic, more alien and sleek than Bowie,” said Owens, likening his leather jumpsuits and expressionlessness to a cartoon of a German artist.
The result inspired one of Owens’ more accessible collections in recent memory, still

Guy Laroche RTW Fall 2020

For fall, Richard René tried his hand at upcycling. Scouring the Internet, he turned up a dozen Guy Laroche vintage pieces, and took a stab at it — or them. 
René dipped a printed blue silk dress from the late Eighties in black ink, turning it into a blouse and paired it with high-waisted wool trousers, completing the look with a repurposed wool trenchcoat — from the Seventies this time — and adding a layer of patent leather fish scales. It looked good and felt modern. 
Another dress, equally suitable for the era of office secretaries with hair-sprayed hairdos, was updated as a chic evening gown, the waist drawn in and the skirt stretched down, with fat strips of patent leather to add length. 
He also found bolts of ivory, crepe fabric from the Seventies which he worked into new designs — the material clung to the body like a “Star Trek” suit, looking sleek and sensual as a jumpsuit, or a hip-hugging dress with prominent shoulders, but a bit awkward as a pleated skirt-blouse combo. 
With no production — there hasn’t been in three years — and a limited budget, René’s experiment in upcycling has turned up a compelling proposition for a brand

Koché RTW Fall 2020

Christelle Kocher’s fall collection was the first since her Koché label joined forces with Renzo Rosso’s fashion group OTB, and it showed.
Set in a cavernous hall at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, the coed display had a nocturnal ambience, accentuated by the dingy lighting generated by floor projectors. It opened with one of her signature polo dresses, only done in black leather with dramatic leg-of-mutton sleeves.
Leveraging OTB’s expertise in denim through its flagship brand Diesel, Kocher had a field day with the material, sending out Canadian tuxedos galore. A patchwork shirt was paired with a skirt with a sweeping train, while those puffy sleeves were worked into a tight-fitting blouse tucked into a low-crotched pair of baggy jeans.
“I wanted it to be an evolution because this new partnership we have with Renzo is like a new beginning for the brand, with the opportunity to use high-quality manufacturers,” she said backstage. “It’s about how I can bring my personal touch to it through the cuts and embellishment.”
While a mosaic-style denim pant and skirt looked a little bulky, Kocher hit her stride with embroidered and embellished jeans, paired with a bodysuit studded with Swarovski crystals and topped with heaps of pearls and

Kenneth Ize RTW Fall 2020

It’s not often that a debut show at Paris Fashion Week can boast Naomi Campbell on the runway. The British model, wearing a colorful-striped belted trenchcoat, closed Kenneth Ize’s runway display on the opening day of the French shows, in a sign of the growing importance of African fashion on the international stage.
“She made this happen, to be fair. She’s part of the journey since Day One in my career,” said the Nigerian designer, a finalist for last year’s LVMH Prize for Young Designers.
She wasn’t the only heavy hitter on hand. Model-turned-designer Liya Kebede applauded from the front row as a diverse cast paraded in Ize’s colorful coed creations, in a blend of patterned knits, Austrian lace and his signature striped aso oke cloth with fringed hems.
To be sure, Ize’s designs are not for shrinking violets. A fearless colorist, he loves piling on the striped motifs, layering up to three different patterns on a single look. And why wouldn’t you, when the handwoven fabrics — an emerald shirt and pants with a fringed belt in particular — seemed to positively shimmer with color.
But what was truly striking was the way he blended traditional and modern silhouettes. Alton Mason’s checked tunic

Boss RTW Fall 2020

Ingo Wilts wants to bring a bit of color to his Boss collections — and surprise people by doing so. “Typically everybody says that the Boss palette is centered around dark navy, green and black, to which we reply: not this time,” Wilts said backstage.
The tone was set from the first look at the venue: a lilac carpeted music hall in which guests sipped matching mauve smoothies while waiting for the show to start. Models walked out to a live string orchestra wearing a precise curation of colors to complement the traditional black, navy and gray Boss looks. Lilac, a daring tone for men’s wear, looked particularly good on masculine suits, while the hue freshened up an oversized duster coat and snuggly knitted polo neck jumper for women. Rust tones brought warmth to leather coats and trousers for men, as did pops of orange on parkas and faux-fur coats.
Texture was added in the form of long fringes on suits, sleeveless dresses and leather handbags, a nod to the Charleston dresses of the Roaring Twenties in honor of the new decade, and zebra patterns on coats, skirts and men’s jackets. “We didn’t want a print that was just a print,

Daniel Craig’s New James Bond Watch From ‘No Time To Die’ Can Be Yours in 2020

When Daniel Craig hits the silver screen in his final appearance as James Bond in No Time To Die, he’ll have a handy new timepiece on his wrist. Craig’s Bond will be wearing the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition watch, which was designed in collaboration with Craig for the 25th official film in the franchise.


‘Bond 25’: Everything You Need to Know About the Next James Bond Film ‘No Time To Die’

Bond has been wearing an Omega watch since Pierce Brosnan played the character in 1995’s GoldenEye. For this particular timepiece, Omega is releasing it as part of a non-limited collection in February, giving fans everywhere the chance to wear the same timepiece as Craig’s Bond in the new film.

The design of the new Seamaster was inspired by Bond’s military past as a former Royal Naval Reserve Commander, as he would have been given an Omega watch in real life if he was a British Royal Navy officer. The Bond films’ original partnership with Omega was in part inspired by that history as well.


This Limited-Edition Omega Seamaster Diver Watch Celebrates an Iconic James Bond Film

“When our costume designer on GoldenEye, Lindy Hemming, whose father would have been one of the people who got the Navy Omega watch in the war, recommended it, I felt that particular history was a fit for the character,” said longtime Bond producer Michael G. Wilson, who has worked on the franchise since 1972, at a press conference for the release of the watch. “Omega first came to mind for me as a strong timepiece when Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon and all the astronauts had Omega timepieces. When Lindy brought it to me, I thought, ‘if it’s good enough for the astronauts, it has to be good enough for James Bond.’”

Craig himself collaborated with the design team, making it the first time ever that an actor playing Bond helped design a watch for the character.

When it was brought to me at the beginning of the filming process, I thought, ‘You’ve done it: This is the James Bond watch.’

“I wanted to help create a watch that suited my Bond character, who is a military man at heart,” Craig said at the press conference. “We started having a dialogue and Omega took in my input, and the watch is the culmination of that dialogue, and, in a way, a culmination of my character of Bond in this series of films. It’s a military watch, but it’s also elegant. You can wear it as a dress watch, but it feels like a military watch, which is what Bond would need. It’s titanium, and light as a feather. When it was brought to me at the beginning of the filming process, I thought, ‘You’ve done it: This is the James Bond watch.’”


This James Bond Omega Watch Set Is Inspired By ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’

The new Seamaster is featured multiple times in the No Time To Die trailer, including when Bond is speaking with Spectre villain Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) and later when he gets ready to shoot a gun around the two minute mark. Here’s a look at the trailer:

The watch will be available with a titanium mesh bracelet strap, or a striped NATO strap in dark brown, gray, and beige, which also has “007″ engraved on the loop. The timepieces are made with Grade 2 Titanium on the case and mesh bracelet, and the caseback includes references to the Omega’s military history as well as the Bond character.

Each watch includes a naval code-number that fits the format for genuine military-issue watches along with “007,” for Bond’s double-00 agent number, and “62,” referencing the year the first Bond film (Dr. No) was released. The Seamaster watch with the NATO strap is available for $ 8,100, while the titanium mesh strap timepiece is set at $ 9,200.


Here Are the 4 Aston Martin Cars Featured in the Next James Bond Film ‘No Time to Die’

Here’s a close look at Craig wearing the titanium mesh strap version of the watch in the film:

Max Mara Atelier Fall 2020

German painter Anselm Kiefer, known for the use of natural, raw materials, served as inspiration for the Max Mara Atelier fall collection, which spanned 14 coat designs crafted from a wide range of fabrics. From a mannish style to a cape-like design and the effortless cardigan coat, the collection played with a restrained palette of  autumnal colors, such as burgundy, brown and gray. Luxury materials, including doubled cashmere, alpaca, camel hair, shearling and mohair were paired with special details, such as leather inserts, as well as fox-fur collars and detachable vests.

Giorgio Armani to Hold Fall 2020 Show Behind Closed Doors

CHANGE OF PLANS: Giorgio Armani said late Saturday evening that his signature brand’s women’s fall show will be held behind closed doors, “given the recent developments of the coronavirus in Italy.”
“The show will be filmed in an empty theater, without press and buyers” and will be visible on Armani.com, the brand’s Instagram and Facebook accounts at 5 p.m. CET, the company said in a brief note.
The designer was meant to hold two shows, at 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. CET, in his Via Bergognone headquarters, closing Milan Fashion Week, which kicked off on Feb. 19. “The decision was made to avoid exposing guests to any dangers to their health,” said the company. Armani held his Emporio Armani fall show on Friday.
As reported a few hours earlier, international eyewear trade show Mido has postponed its upcoming edition slated to run Feb. 29 to March 2 at Milan’s Rho-Fiera fairgrounds due to uncertainty over the coronavirus epidemic in Italy.
The fair’s organizer said the trade show would be held between the end of May and early June.
As of Saturday night, according to media reports, 60 Italians were diagnosed with the virus in the past two days, including 47 people in the Lombardy region, of which one resides on the

Loro Piana RTW Fall 2020

Loro Piana looked toward the Big Apple for fall, taking inspiration from both New York’s urban landscape and the warm tones of Central Park in the autumn. Skyscrapers inspired a structured coat made of melton cashmere in pale green, held together by a chunky light brown belt, as well as a brown baby cashmere trench with raglan sleeves. A long, ribbed, baby cashmere dress with side slits had a slightly padded turtleneck, so that the collar stays rigid, and was worn over a chic pair of cashmere trousers in matching beige.
The cashmere specialist added two technical innovations this season: the studio managed to work vicuna into jersey, which is no mean feat as the wool is so fine, and introduced its interpretation of eco-fur in the form of “cash-fur” fleece jackets, which took more than a year to develop. The material was applied to cute teddy bear-like jackets in light brown and cream, which were fully reversible. Cashmere-lined rain boots and a Forget Me Not line of accessories destined to hold all the things that have a tendency to get lost — leather phone and water bottle holders, lipstick cases and even earphone pouches — completed the range.

Gucci RTW Fall 2020

Is fashion a religion? Alessandro Michele thinks it’s pretty close, with the runway show its most revered ritual. Michele dedicated his fall Gucci collection to the multitiered ritual of designing, making, staging and viewing a fashion show. He spoke of the show ritual in intimate terms, and seemed to channel old-school insider passions.
“Fashion is a complex mechanism, it’s theatrical. All of us work for this ritual, that is almost religious,” Michele said during his post-show press conference, a session filled once again with deep fashion thoughts delivered in a stream-of-consciousness monologue, save for a question or two interjected by a couple of intrepid journalists. Before he was finished, Michele would liken fashion to a circus as well as religion, and his creative role to that of a doctor and physicist. He would explain snippets of his soundtrack — the Fellini voiceover (he’s “talking about the sacredness of cinema and how much ritual there is) and Ravel’s Bolero (“a march that seems to keep going indefinitely”).
Fashion believers, Michele claimed, want to break free but can’t. “It traps you. We are all trapped. Everybody — the hairstylists, the makeup artists, everybody working together so hectically — we all say that one day

A.L.C. RTW Fall 2020

Andrea Lieberman is direct in her design approach and evolution for A.L.C. “I never think it’s a radical departure for us,” she noted. “It’s very focused on our girl, her story, her life, her needs. For me, I definitely feel like it’s a lot about keeping things modern.”
To that end, she focused on classic items meant to round out a covetable wardrobe: Think tailoring, knitwear and jeans cut with a preppy Seventies spirit. She brought in interesting textures with chintz pleated fabrics and drapey, side-ruched corduroy tops tucked into the perfect high-waisted straight-leg jeans. A warm palette of auburn, sumac and earth tones made a roomy coat, furry jacket, sweaters and clingy knits more inviting. A tight pink polo cut with a low neckline maintained the perfect balance of nostalgia, proportion play and attitude. “These are things she puts in her closet,” Lieberman concluded. They fill “a real need in a woman’s wardrobe in a modern, sexy and effortless way.”

Burberry RTW Fall 2020

Burberry is burnishing its green credentials, staging its first carbon-neutral show under the soaring Victorian arches of Olympia London and planning to reforest areas of Australia destroyed by the bush fires, among other environmental moves.
The fall show set — a mix of the elegant and the raw — reflected this new mood: The space was chilly and the floors bare. The latter still had markings on them from the latest trade show.
By contrast, the rectangular catwalk had a deco feel with little mirrored panels lining the sides, while pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque played live on stage as models strutted.
Burberry creative director Riccardo Tisci admitted he’s getting to grips with green fashion, and it remains a work in progress. “It isn’t 100 percent developed yet. We do a lot of nylon, but to get the right nylon is difficult. Nobody has good quality yet,” he said, adding that he still loves real fur.
“I did fur for all of my career because I used to do couture, but I don’t miss it. Now there are so many alternatives that look real, but it is still very expensive because of the technology,” the designer said.

Simone Rocha RTW Fall 2020

Simone Rocha looked underwater for inspiration for fall. She sprinkled elements of sea life throughout the collection, but in classic Rocha style, nothing felt literal or too straight-forward.
There were earrings that resembled shark teeth, heavily knotted deconstructed knits that brought ropes to mind and pearl-encrusted net bags to mirror “sailors’ nets catching pearls.”
Rocha did not stop there — she also brought in ideas of baptism clothes in the floral-embroidered borders on her crisp cotton shirt dresses and elsewhere added a tougher, more punk edge via the big red heart appliqués she added to tulle skirts. She melded it all with her own distinct vocabulary: tulle dresses, puff shoulders, bows and glitter galore that fit right into the grand setting of the neo-classical Mayfair mansion Lancaster House, where the show was staged across multiple rooms.
New and old references came together to create a charming mash-up of materials, colors and textures that was true to the brand’s signature style. But Rocha also offered plenty of new ideas to take in: She added a bigger dose of tailoring and made it hers by splicing blazers and adding tulle or regal satin drapes on the shoulders, as well as more graphic, playful prints featuring anchors

David Koma RTW Fall 2020

David Koma staged his fall 2020 show at the Leadenhall building, the same East London skyscraper he picked last season.
This time around he went 42 floors up, though, perhaps a sign of his intention to up the ante, take more risks and “close one chapter and start a new one.”
He did that by paying homage to London, “the city that made his dreams come true,” and by melding new and old ideas in a collection packed with attitude and confidence.
The embellished, body-hugging dresses were familiar, but there was also a wider offer of well-tailored blazers and mannish coats, embellished knits, denim jumpsuits and a heftier dose of accessories that fit right in with his signature evening dresses.
References to London were apparent throughout, from the prints featuring the city’s skyline to the 3-D crystal-embellished minidresses that were shaped like landmark buildings and could double as armor.
What stood out was how Koma was unafraid to play with bad taste, be it the extra-large crystal brooches on a cropped jacket, the corsets layered over T-shirts or the letters hanging off a high slit spelling out London.
It was all exaggerated and in-your-face, capturing the city’s wonderfully eccentric nature.

Matty Bovan RTW Fall 2020

It was bonkers in the best, most joyful way possible: Think tinsel curtains turned into headpieces, larger-than-life wigs, rolls of fabrics attached to the garments and any material combination one could imagine possible, from bejeweled denim and brocade to stiff pin-striped wool patched together with casual jersey and tulle.
Matty Bovan wanted to create an “out-of-body” and “out-of-proportion” experience that challenges people and pushes their perception of taste. That’s why he focused on exaggerated silhouettes that created distorted, angular shapes around models’ hips and backs and mixed all sorts of materials together to create a crafty, undone look.
The bright colors and rich textures only helped make Bovan’s visual feast more exciting: He custom-made a metallic brocade fabric that was morphed into draped jackets and big-volume dresses and showcased his impressive knitting skills with a range of intarsia-knit pieces featuring graphic patterns and the word “Exit” all over — a not-so-subtle reference to Britain’s exit from the European Union last month.
“Everyone’s discussing this kind of seismic shift, and what it actually means. You can’t help but think about it — this is just a more joyful interpretation of leaving and going out into the world. It’s not naive, but a celebration of

Kozaburo RTW and Men’s Spring 2020

Name: Kozaburo
Main message: Kozaburo Akasaka has lived overseas for many years, and was even a finalist for the 2017 LVMH Prize, the same year he started his brand. But Japan has always been a supportive market for him, and this was one reason he decided to return to his home country to stage his first show in Tokyo.
“I wanted to come back to Tokyo, where I came from, and show who I am now,” he said. “For me, this show is like a thank you and a chance for people in Japan to experience the whole world of Kozaburo.”
His collection had a retro, rock-‘n’-roll edge to it, but also elements from workwear and Asian influences. Raw denim bell-bottoms, high-waisted black trousers, a yellow satin bomber and loose-fitting coats were just a few pieces he sent down the runway. There were also several matching tracksuits, including a bright yellow set that was reminiscent of the one Uma Thurman wore in “Kill Bill.”
The result: This was a collection that was edgy yet soft; retro yet effortlessly cool; casual yet stylish. In short, it was streetwear for those with a sense of style and fit.

Cinoh RTW and Men’s Spring 2020

Name: Cinoh
Main message: Takayuki Chino said he was inspired by a French sense of style for spring, “including the chic way the French wear scarves, Basque shirts and nautical items such as striped boatnecks.” And while these things may sound cliché, the designer succeeded at reinventing them in his own way. He fashioned silky scarves in white, red and navy stripes into buttoned-up ponchos and pleated skirts, and lengthened tipped jackets into calf-length coats, pairing them with jumpsuits and relaxed, high-waisted trousers.
For men, Chino showed a relaxed style of tailoring, including jackets without lapels over long, untucked shirts and loose-fitting pants. He mixed widths of blue and white shirting stripes and added a casual touch with drawstring trousers and sporty bomber jackets.
The result: While many of the pieces were timeless and basic, Chino made them feel modern by giving them a relaxed edge and playing with slightly oversize proportions.

Diet Butcher Slim Skin Men’s Spring 2020

Name: Diet Butcher Slim Skin
Main message: This curiously named brand has been around since the mid-Nineties, but took to Tokyo’s runways for the first time this season. Designer Hisashi Fukatami worked with artists Kosuke Kawamura and Guccimaze on prints for the collection.
“Having been an aspiring artist myself, my core curiosity lies in the coexistence of art and fashion,” Fukatami wrote in his show notes. “The relationship between art and fashion and culture and fashion being often on the table for discussion, I see those coexisting in a very amicable manner. I have created this collection with inspiration from works of those artists who always stimulate my curiosity.”
The two artists’ works were incorporated into tunics, A-line shirts, casual pants with protruding pockets, and scarves that were tied tightly at the models’ necks. Fukatami also showed silky, drapy suits in light gray or navy, and separates in traditionally feminine pastels and textiles.
The result: Fukatami’s interpretation of tailoring was soft and light, infused with artistic prints and mixed patterns for a modern men’s wear look that seamlessly mixed casual with elevated looks.

Mistergentleman Men’s Spring 2020

With several strong seasons under their belt and stores in Tokyo, Shanghai and Hong Kong, Takeshi Osumi and Yuichi Yoshii have become a fixture in the coveted Friday night slot during Tokyo Fashion Week. Their latest season was no exception, drawing a crowd that included local and international fashion insiders, among whom was Marcelo Burlon.
The designers began their show with a series of preppy white or checked short suits, with the jackets worn unbuttoned over bare chests for a look of disheveled cool. They also mixed different colors of checks — green, white and red — or printed them onto sheer fabrics.
Khaki or olive shorts, pullovers and onesies were reminiscent of Fifties Boy Scout uniforms, combined with elements from classic military styles. There were also a few traditional checked suits, but in relaxed silhouettes and with elements like sleeves that dangled from the models’ shoulders or pants with high-waist backs, secured in the front with a black strap.
Never ones to play it safe, Osumi and Yoshii also mixed in bold neon tops and shirts and jackets embellished with shiny gold beads or clear rhinestones. Tailored shirts with built-in fanny packs displayed the pair’s adeptness at combining seemingly at-odds pieces into brand

Roland Mouret Resort 2020

For Roland Mouret, it’s all in the drape. The designer worked Seventies-inspired makeup colors into this collection of fluid, draped, feminine clothing. He put the focus on fabrics including wool crepe, stretch viscose and hammered satin, the latter of which made for flowing handkerchief hems on a skirt; breezy, sensual slipdresses, and the generous, draped sleeves on plissé or striped blouses.
Mouret said he wants women to use his clothes as a tool to define and express themselves, whether that’s for work or not. There were tailored pieces here, too, including a long crepe coat in fire engine red, and a lineup of unfussy suits with thick, karate-style belts and wide-leg trousers, in solid colors like purple, or checks. A silver lamé jumpsuit inspired by the glitter ball added a dash of Seventies spice to the mix.

Onitsuka Tiger RTW and Men’s Spring 2020

Japanese sports and streetwear brand Onitsuka Tiger staged its spring show in an indoor running stadium on an island in Tokyo Bay. The festivities began with a marching band, wheel acrobatics and dancers who flew through the air doing backflips and the like. And with the 2020 Summer Olympics being hosted by Tokyo, creative director Andrea Pompilio drew inspiration both from the city and from past editions of the Games.
“This season is a big homage to Tokyo because it’s going to be the Olympic Games of 2020,” Pompilio said. “The collection is going to be in the stores at that time, and that’s the reason why you see a lot of luggage. Because for me it’s like all the world is coming here and Tokyo has become a really big center of the world. For the Olympics but also because Tokyo at the moment is a really big center of creativity and a very inspiring city for so many people.”
The luggage Pompilio mentioned was made of slick vinyl in the Olympic colors and emblazoned with either retro or modern looking logos. Shapes ranged from cosmetic bags to Boston bags.
“Another big inspiration is about all historical and past Olympic Games from

Shohei RTW and Men’s Spring 2020

Name: Shohei
Main message: Austrian designer Lisa Pek made her Tokyo Fashion Week debut a year ago, and after a one-season break she was back with a collection that once again showed off both her technical skill and her knack for nailing a Western interpretation of a Japanese aesthetic. While many of Pek’s silhouettes were simple and classic — button-up shirts, a cross-front midiskirt, and relaxed-fitting suits for men — she mixed them up with unexpected details or asymmetric additions. There was a loose ruffle that ran across and trailed off of plain white or blue tie-dyed shirts; trousers with zippers that opened to create slits at the knees and thighs, and a sweatshirt dress with added “sleeves” that tied around the waist. 
The result: Pek’s brand showed potential as a contemporary label that produces easy-to-wear collections with a slight twist, but she may benefit from taking a few more risks in the future.

Mitsuru Okazaki RTW and Men’s Spring 2020

Name: Mitsuru Okazaki
Main message: Inspired by Seventies rock ‘n’ roll style, Mitsuru Okazaki sent out a compact collection of slim suits and separates with an edge. Roughly half a dozen black unisex pantsuits were accented with bold white contrasts in the shape of circles, stars, arrows, guitars, or strips of cotton tape arranged in the style of a Napoleon jacket. Black tank tops and bell bottoms printed or embroidered with guitars took a literal interpretation of the theme, while bright pink satin shirts with basketweave detailing and pants with their seams on the outside made the look feel more modern.
The result: It was a tight collection with a clear theme that nonetheless had enough variety in just over 20 looks that it kept the audience’s attention.

RABD Men’s Spring 2020

Name: RABD
Main message: A former design assistant for John Galliano, Kanya Miki founded his brand in 2017 and this season marked his second showing during Tokyo Fashion Week. He still made a common rookie mistake, sending out at least twice as many looks he should have if he wanted to avoid repetition and losing his audience’s attention.
Roomy silhouettes dominated Miki’s runway. Pants were extra long, pleated, and cinched at the waist, sometimes with long cords or chains that trailed behind as the models walked. Outerwear, too, was oversize, whether it took the form of faux leather bombers so long they nearly reached the knee or denim overcoats with bunched up sleeves. Even cropped suit jackets had shoulders so wide that they hung from the models’ frames.
The result: Despite the repetition and sheer volume of the collection, it showed a clear direction and was an interesting new take on the casual-meets-tailoring trend that has become common among streetwear brands.

Gut’s Dynamite Cabarets RTW and Men’s Spring 2020

Name: Gut’s Dynamite Cabarets
Main message: After a nearly seven-year hiatus from Tokyo’s runways, the designers who go by the names Cabaret Aki and Jackal Kuzu were back for spring, this time with their new partner W Woods Showko. Their collection had a retro, rock ‘n’ roll-meets-hippie vibe to it, with floral caftans and printed maxi skirts shown alongside ruffled blouses, ripped jeggings, and leopard-print blazers. There was a riot of color and pattern, from multicolored zigzags to a black all-over logo print over a bright pink background. Long fringe-trimmed skirts, dresses and ponchos.
During a break from the traditional runway show, the designers sent out groups of street dancers, nontraditional models, and wrestlers wearing pieces from GCGX, the brand’s new sports line. Heavy on logos, there were sweatsuits, T-shirts, shorts and leggings in either black and white or a red, blue and yellow multicolored print.
The result: As the finale soundtrack — “Fight for Your Right” by the Beastie Boys — suggested, this was a high-energy show that certainly brought the fun. The clothes themselves were a bit more toned down than the brand’s previous fare, but will likely do well on a commercial level.

Children of the Discordance Men’s Spring 2020

Name: Children of the Discordance
Main message: Hideaki Shikama runs what is possibly Japan’s coolest “sustainable” fashion brand, although he doesn’t promote it as such. He designs products that incorporate traditional skills of indigenous peoples in countries from Mexico to Kenya, and follows fair-trade practices in purchasing them. He also works with artist Naoto Yoshida, who remakes vintage fashions as new pieces.
Shikama’s spring offering was rich in color, texture and pattern. Velvety floral tracksuits, bandanna prints on Indian-inspired tunics and straight trousers, intricate embroidery on oversize denim jackets, and shirts fashioned from scarf prints were combined with more  pedestrian camouflage pants and workers’ overalls.
The result: An eclectic mix of multicultural influences and colorful prints came together with loose, casual silhouettes for streetwear with a refined polish.

Hare RTW and Men’s Spring 2020

Name: Hare
Main message: One of the more commercial brands to show during Tokyo Fashion Week, Hare is designed by a team. For spring they turned out oversize versions of classic jackets and tops, often with exaggerated, wide sleeves, overly boxy shapes, or nearly comically large pockets. Paired with wide-legged pants, some looks bordered on shapeless, but others had asymmetric details that gave them a modern edge. The team incorporated Japanese imagery into their prints and motifs, from kabuki actors to bonsai trees, as well as traditional geometric patterns. Neutral tones of black, white, beige and brown were contrasted with pops of red, fuchsia and gold.
The result: There were some beautiful fabrics and interesting imagery, but many of the pieces themselves were either very basic or so oversized that they lost their shape, and certain details such as trailing ribbons of chiffon seemed to have no rhyme or reason and didn’t do anything to elevate the pieces.

Rainmaker RTW and Men’s Spring 2020

Name: Rainmaker
Main message: A rare Kyoto-based brand in Japan’s fashion scene, Rainmaker was chosen as one of the winners of this year’s Tokyo Fashion Award. For their second showing during Tokyo Fashion Week, Kohichi Watanabe and Ryutaro Kishi showed relaxed but refined silhouettes in soft, draping fabrics. Unstructured trenches and suit jackets were paired with easy trousers, and collarless shirts topped drawstring shorts. The palette was muted neutrals and pastels, with the exception of a deep purple silk embroidered allover in a floral pattern. Cardigans and shirts were often worn unbuttoned but crossed over in the front and tucked in, for an elegantly undone look.
The result: The offering was cohesive and well executed, with a modern versatility that would be right at home in any urban environment.

Spring 2020 Trend: Clowning Around

Perhaps it was a natural (if theatrical) progression of the ongoing volume trend, or an indication that designers were anticipating this month’s release of “Joker.” Then again, maybe the darkly comedic side of our cultural reality spurred imaginations. Whatever the impetus, the tiers (and billows, tunics, colors and giant collars) of a clown were all over the spring runways. Looks referenced all manner, from chic Pierrot to everybody’s favorite, Ronald McDonald.

Hyke RTW Spring 2020

Yukiko Ode and Hideaki Yoshihara’s brand has, for the past several seasons, been a consistent bright spot during Tokyo Fashion Week, and the latest season was no exception. After a series of collections focused on reinventing classic military pieces from around the world, the spring offering had a softer, more feminine feel to it, but was no less timeless.
Hyke is not a brand that capitalizes on sex appeal. There is very little skin shown with its clothes, even for spring. And yet they have a refined elegance that is undeniable. Ankle-length trenchcoats, maxidresses layered over fringed skirts, and pantsuits topped with pleated half skirts were turned out in neutral khaki, beige, navy and black, with a few pops of blue and pink candy colors thrown in to mix things up. The fabrics were stunning without exception, from smooth cotton and soft linen to functional tech materials.
Having collaborated with sports brands including The North Face in the past, this season saw a grouping of pieces made in conjunction with Adidas. Pleated, asymmetrical dresses, yoga-ready leggings, and abstract printed black-and-white pullovers were often paired with more tailored items, such as fringed long skirts or a basic black shirt.

Spring 2020 Trend: Waist Not

One school of fashion says that most women want clothes with a waist. Another school prefers to let loose, literally. That school made multiple compelling arguments for spring, as designers ruminated on new ways to deliver unfettered volume, for day and evening. Alluring looks ranged from oversize T-shirts to elaborate layerings.

Lacoste RTW Spring 2020

“The players are ready. Position,” and with that, the second Lacoste collection by Louise Trotter hit the runway, corridors around Roland-Garros’ brand-new Simonne Mathieu court, an ultra-modern installation nestled in the greenery of the Serres d’Auteuil botanical gardens. But the venue, where the brand had surprisingly never shown despite historic links with the sporting complex, wasn’t the only opposing pair offered by the tennis-centric brand this season.
For this iteration, the incumbent designer explored what she called the brand’s “aristocratic yet quite street” identity. “I wanted to try and address the nostalgia people feel toward Lacoste, with a contemporary lens,” she said backstage. Sporty pieces were cut from butter-soft leathers or silks. On others, Trotter demonstrated her deft tailoring hand, cutting a double-breasted suit in soft pink. Shown in succession on a female and then male models, it reinforced the idea that very little, if any, of the lineup was gender-specific — not even floor-skimming polo shirts and skirts that nodded to the Japanese hakama in their pleating and proportions.
To ground her work in the here-and-now, she tweaked proportions on house signatures. Mercerised or heavier yarns were used to produce oversize piqué. Widened cuffs and ribbing details were given pride of

Equipment RTW Spring 2020

Equipment continued to expand its offering for spring, with utilitarian and archival details and a watercolor palette coming together in a lineup inspired by Marrakech. There was an expanded range of dresses, some directly derived from the brand’s shirting heritage, others with more feminine wrap shapes and done in animal or floral prints.
Elevated basics presented more masculine lines, as on a cropped military shirtdress in beige or cilantro leather shorts and matching army sweater, which rubbed shoulders with more statement pieces, like a viscose twill jumpsuit in fuchsia and red.

Louis Vuitton RTW Spring 2020

Closing Paris Fashion Week can be a double-edged sword. In theory, the Louis Vuitton show is the star-studded, spectacular apotheosis to a month of runway shows in four capitals. In practice, weary fashion editors are anxiously eyeing the clock to gauge if they will make their plane or train back home.
It didn’t help that the Vuitton show this season started an hour later than usual, just after the sun set on the plastic tent erected in the courtyard of the Louvre. The brand wanted to maximize the impact of the music video that played on a giant screen that stretched the entire width of the catwalk.
Looming over the audience was transgender singer Sophie Xeon, known simply as Sophie, performing an extended version of her 2017 track “It’s Okay to Cry.” Somewhat surreally, models emerged from a door set in the middle of the performer’s chest.
Nicolas Ghesquière has been flirting with gender fluidity for several seasons, having cast androgynous models including Krow Kian in his spring show a year ago, and subsequently tapped transgender actress Indya Moore to star in his pre-fall look book and act as Instagram “host” for Vuitton’s fall show.

Aalto RTW Spring 2020

This wasn’t your typical, sparkling beach inspiration. Tuomas Merikoski was thinking more of danger, lust and excitement, he said — his summer feeling has something more of a road-trip vibe. To start with, there was a heavy dose of white — lightweight white cotton shirts, some with sailor blouse collars, and a trenchcoat with wide lapels. Merikoski had also rigged up sails in the showroom — he’s making handbags out of sails, and a stiff, crinkly prototype sat near the window, with round handles. Next to the bags were clogs — a collaboration with a traditional Finnish make called Talla, some with fat bows. But topping accessories was the stingray hat. Imagine a bucket hat with an extended brim, that split and grew stingray tails. It added flair but he meant it to be worn casually — like a real sailor bob that will look good even after it’s bleached by the sun. 
Then there was color — simple cotton T-shirts carried an extra sash of lightweight material with the house’s “bleeding dots” print, drape it in front, drape it in back, or toss it in the washing machine — the silky fabric was actually a recycled polyester. 
And now for the statement

Maticevski RTW Spring 2020

For Australian designer Toni Maticevski, designing around a theme is no longer working out. “It’s really weird. I’ve stopped trying to figure it out,” he said ruefully during a showroom appointment. What he thought about instead: how good a spring morning feels — clear skies, bright light and the scent of dew-saturated earth.
He embodied the latter as touches of sheen or darker tones; the bright light in flattering pinky-beiges, and the breeze in fabrics meant to obscure without hiding the skin. Given his proclivity for architectural draping, the result could have easily felt too formal. Here, his sculptural approach was reined in by softer fabrics and felt more relatable, especially with new daywear options.
Among the standouts: A light gray striped dress looked blowsy, while soft tuffs dotting white gauze fabric evoked sun-dappled surfaces. A jersey T-shirt gave an editor-off-duty look to a pencil skirt. The soft hand of a silk blend made a top and matching trousers skew more relaxed but still smart.
The lighter materials of the collection made tailored pieces stand out. A double-breasted blazer felt at once familiar and fresh, while a check overcoat toed the line between sporty and statement thanks to its kimono-inspired proportions. “My idea of

Capucci RTW Spring 2020

For their second season at storied Rome house Capucci, Luisa Orsini and Antonine Peduzzi played with optical effects, using iridescent fabrics that change color in the light and working them into designs that can be worn in different ways to create volume.
Mikado silks were taken from Capucci’s archives, recycled into modernized cocktail separates in color-blocked brights. A cropped waistcoat in lilac silk was adorned with glow-in-the-dark beads, intended to evoke a rosary, and worn with high-waisted white pants.
A handmade black devoré gown and plissé silk dresses — orange or red, burgundy or green, depending on the light — in one-shouldered or bell-sleeved iterations nodded to the house’s couture heritage, a link the designers are keen to cultivate as they seek to modernize the label without neglecting its rich history.
Wide-brimmed “visiere” hats, adorned with beaded fringing or giant bows, added to the updated vintage feel of the collection.

Martin Grant RTW Spring 2020

“It’s a little bit ‘workwear meets Bubblegum Barbie,’” said Martin Grant, by way of introducing his spring collection. That’s some statement, coming from a designer famous for dressing style icons like Cate Blanchett and Meghan Markle.
Grant was referring specifically to a blue belted shirtdress with safari pockets that he’d paired with pink heels, but there were plenty of other playful options in his spring collection: a sexy pink halterneck minidress; cross-back bra tops, and a navy linen zip-front, hourglass bustier dress.
They tipped his trademark masculine-feminine dynamic into flirtier territory. Even the suits had a softer edge this season, courtesy of a slightly Eighties-feeling curved, cropped pant shape. Grant emphasized the waist by belting everything from oversize shirts to a flowing one-shouldered pink taffeta evening gown.
He also used the taffeta for a puff-sleeved shirt, noting that the fabric was made by a French company that historically supplied haute couture houses. “It’s one of the first pinks that I used when I moved to Paris, and it’s called ‘Paris.’ I like also that I can go back to a house that I used 15 years ago and have that exact color,” he mused.
Bubblegum Barbie just got a couture makeover.

Maison Rabih Kayrouz RTW Spring/Summer 2020

UPDATED: Maison Rabih Kayrouz showed its new summer 2020 during Paris Fashion Week.
“The whole Maison Rabih Kayrouz universe is presented once during the July show, and then sold in three stages: ‘Acte 1’ during couture, and the second part is sold now, for two ready-to-wear deliveries,” said the Paris-based couturier at a presentation for “Acte 2,” the summer delivery of his spring/summer 2020 collection, explaining that this also fit a commercial logic for the brand.
In this second rtw, he concentrated on giving his client ease of movement, and “lightness by all means” befitting the warmest summer days. Crisp white cotton was cut in generous shirt dresses that could be worn belted or not; tiered dresses were adorned with openwork details that nodded to a couture bridal look, or blouses decked in gold buttons — a nod to his buttons but also to Bedouin garments.
Expanding on the stripe theme, he reprised easy shapes in silk charmeuse or in stripes of primary colors. Construction remained simple, with garments based on simple shapes of T-shirts that grew into dresses, shirts with a pin-tucked ruffle outlining the shoulders or even rectangles of fabric that echoed Grecian garments.

Mary Katrantzou Spring 2020

Mary Katrtantzou set the bar high for her spring 2020 show — a little too high, some would say.
Just like she managed to make the impossible possible when it came to securing her dream show venue – the historic Temple of Poseidon in Athens – the Greek-born designer delivered a standout couture collection that was bursting with emotion, ideas and elevated construction techniques.
It was admirable that she was able to execute everything at such scale, on a tight budget and with a small team at her north London atelier. Her talent, conviction – and many a sleepless night – certainly paid off.
The collection consisted of 30 looks, each exploring a different couture technique and conceptualizing a philosophical idea birthed in Greece at the same time as the temple of Poseidon was built, in 440 B.C.
The first model – in a sequinned and fringed column gown with a quote from Socrates embroidered on it – made her way down the runway against the ancient ruins, sending a frisson through the crowd. The dim lighting and eerie music added to the electricity in the space.

Honayda RTW Spring 2020

For her first presentation at Paris Fashion Week, Honayda Serafi drew inspiration from her childhood memories of seeing Bedouin women in the countryside in her native Saudi Arabia.
Their traditional outfits inspired the seashell-embroidered belt she layered over a silky white cape-sleeved top, and the geometric patterns on a hooded dress worn over matching pants. The layered silhouettes are a pragmatic choice for Bedouin women out in the elements, but Serafi gave them a seductive allure.
A black bustier jumpsuit was overlaid with a sheer tunic with graphic silver sequin embroideries, while dramatic floor-length capes added pizzazz to buttoned-up long-sleeve shirts and pants. The designer titled the collection “Evolution,” saying it was a vision of how women could evolve from one generation to the next.
Serafi has done her bit to challenge social attitudes in Saudi Arabia by introducing colored and embroidered abayas in previous collections. This time, she showed variations on the traditional caftan, such as a white column dress with a pleated half cape. “This for me is the new generation of caftans: dress caftans,” she explained.
The collection was heavy on the kind of red-carpet fare that has won over celebrities including Priyanka Chopra, Lupita Nyong’o and Lindsey Vonn. Standouts included

Kirin Peggy Gou RTW Spring 2020

Peggy Gou doesn’t need to look far for inspiration: her Kirin line is basically condensed from the kind of things she likes to wear. For her sophomore collection, the South Korean-born techno DJ and producer whipped up outfits for everything from hitting the festival circuit to traveling between gigs.
Her signature look is matching tops and pants, ranging from color-blocked tracksuits and denim pairings, to satiny logo-printed pajamas. Among the patterns this season is a pixelated image of dancers — a nod to the Saatchi Gallery’s recent “Sweet Harmony: Rave Today” exhibition — and a motif of Korean traditional masks.
Gou said the idea came from the artwork for her track “Starry Night,” an illustration that shows her hiding behind a laughing mask. “Everything with social media now is about who has a better life, who’s happier, and my cover had the meaning that everything is not as it appears,” she said. “I’m not always a super happy person.”
The Berlin-based DJ has been working with her partners at New Guards Group, the Milan-based brand platform that was recently sold to Farfetch, to refine her assortment. Based on the feedback from her first season, she’s added more feminine shirts and snugger denim fits.

A.P.C. RTW Spring 2020

For its spring show, A.P.C. splashed out on an outdoor sound system, drawing guests into a Left Bank courtyard decorated with flag garlands, a beverage cart and tents displaying merchandise —  future products from three collaborations in the pipeline: JJJJound in November, Carhartt WIP in January and René Tadeo Holguin in March.
“I realise that the older I grow, the less subtle I want to be,” Jean Touitou told the crowd, waving a finger at the setup. DJ Prince, a teenager from the U.S. — found on Instagram — stood ready to spin Eighties tunes to spur the models down the runway.
The lineup was A.P.C. through and through — a sparse selection of prints with checks or flowers, stripes on occasion; more choice in the jeans department, offered at times with matching shirts or in the shape of a sleek boiler suit. Dresses, too, were sprinkled into the mix, trim, attractive and deceptively simple.
Sensible, all of it, with just the right register of chic to keep things from getting too ho-hum.
Moving with the times — the streets will soon be going all dressy — the bomber coat moved to preppy territory this season, tan with a collar, and flaps on the pockets; a

Givenchy RTW Spring 2020

If there’s one thing that’s courted controversy on the runways in Paris, it’s denim, from the fraying denim shorts as base layer for the circa 2020 “le smoking” at YSL, to Seventies Landlubber throwback jeans at Celine, to ripped and shredded Nineties iterations at Givenchy, reworked from actual upcycled vintage pieces in a nod to sustainability, bravo Clare Waight Keller!
It’s not that designer denim is a new phenomenon, far from it. But somehow, in this era of class and climate warfare, it’s been a lightning rod.
But the beauty of denim is that it can be the uniform of the aristocrat and the protester. Designer denim costs more simply because it can, because customers are willing to pay for context and emotions and values. And at Givenchy, Keller has created the whole package, carving out a feminist fashion niche that is honest and questioning (dressing a duchess for her big day didn’t hurt, either).
Titled “NY Paris 1993,” Waight Keller’s latest collection was a look back at a particular moment in time in the Nineties when she started working in fashion at Calvin Klein and was traveling between New York and Paris. She was reminiscing about the contrast of the two fashion

Lutz Huelle RTW Spring 2020

Lest anyone worry that Lutz Huelle, the label, would languish as Huelle, the designer, gets swept up in his new mission at Delpozo, here came a message, striding down the runway: fear not.
A bit saucy and rather fashion-savvy — with an alternative Eighties vibe — the Lutz woman threw off her jeans last season and, swapping them for long skirts with a puff and shiny pencil trousers, declared it was time to dress properly. And enjoy it.
For spring, she carried on in this manner, slipping on an evening gown, in a flowy, black and metallic jacquard splashed with a generously proportioned floral pattern.
“In a way it’s kind of a French, flirty way of dressing — but it’s still what I like,” said Huelle.
He turned his focus on transparency, using an ultralight black mesh, often with polkadots, layering it over short, puffy sleeves, making them larger, or longer, and in one case, adding a chic touch to a light blue cotton shirtdress. Other times the layering felt a bit haphazard — those polka-dotted legs shooting out from under a thick trenchcoat were surprising in a slightly jarring sense —  likely his intention. 
Known for his obsession with bombers and jean jackets — which he

Young LGBTQ+ Voters Know 2020 Is Crucial For Them. Do The Democratic Candidates?

Millennials and Generation Z flocked to the LGBTQ presidential forum on September 20 at Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and they have some thoughts.
News

Alexandre Vauthier RTW Spring 2020

For someone from the field of haute couture, Vauthier is surprisingly democratic, finding ways to literally get the look for less. “While we’re developing fabrics and embellishments for couture, we’re already considering how to spin them off into ready-to-wear, to get the same aspect,” he said during an appointment.
The fall couture’s subject, namely the imagery and crafts that made him go into design, worked overtime in this collection, giving the couturier ample opportunity to play with Parisian tropes. June’s silk faille became prints on silks and jerseys; dresses made of acres of silk mousseline were recast in charmeuse to create volumes and reduce yardage; silk linings get blended with cotton, and hand-crafted flowers created by feather specialists Maison Lemarié return as machine-made fabric blooms. “We ask our suppliers to develop a version with price targets that match rtw targets,” he explained.
So the gold-buttoned blazers loved by French First Lady Brigitte Macron felt familiar, as did brushstroke prints cut into dresses and blouses. His less obviously sexy but intensely handsome feminine suits were made available in more variations, while a statement trench returned as a breezy, lightweight staple. Footwear was available in a range of heel heights and treatments so vast

Isabel Marant RTW Spring 2020

It felt like Isabel Marant wanted to stretch the summer just one more evening as guests waiting for her show in the Palais Royal gardens were treated to music and mojitos.
“I was listening to baile funk, contemporary electronic Brazilian music, and it gave me ideas of Brazil, of beaches. Colors, sexiness. Craft and architects that I love like Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx,” she said backstage. The season certainly read like a day in that setting, going from the pinks and oranges of a sunrise, to the sun-bleached and vivid hues of midday, right through to nighttime’s somber shades.
Warm weather certainly lends itself to the French designer’s particular brand of skin-baring yet always classy sexiness. There were plenty of things to call out in her lineup such as abbreviated denim cutoffs, mini dresses and short skirts galore but also crochet knits and flowy fabrics made to skim toned physiques. Marant men — who now have their first stand-alone boutique — will have their pick of flower print shirts, peasant blouses and matching denim.
Whatever far-flung destination flavors the season, Marant’s work can almost be viewed as a continuum that never strays far from her forte: the free-spirited bohemian French girl.

Lemaire RTW Spring 2020

“A summer rain,” Christophe Lemaire said after a show that stayed thankfully dry in the open courtyard of the École Duperré, despite worrisome black clouds and a distribution of umbrellas.
“We liked this idea of having fabrics with a wet effect,” added partner Sarah-Linh Tran. “We wanted to work around quite defined silhouettes and wet blacks.” This translated into an opening group of dark silhouettes, the kind of elongated looks Lemaire is known for, cut from chintz, coated cottons in various weights and occasional details in glossy wooden pearls — similar to those on orthopedic seat covers used by Parisian taxi drivers.
The duo did away with any embellishment, hewing close to the body by taking cues from the sparse elegance of judo outfits. Those informed the curved legs and padded detailing, notably self-tie belts that cinched jackets and coats, continuing down around the ankle on sandals with puffy straps.
The monochromatic silhouettes looked dipped in single color baths, moving onto a palette of almost neutrals of off-white, blush pinks, caramels and chocolate with the odd sage green — all tones that flatter the skin. “We like clothes to be a kind of new nudity,” Tran said. “This is a kind of makeup

Saint Laurent RTW Spring 2020

The new YSL female power suit is shorts. That according to creative director Anthony Vaccarello, who put the spotlight — literally — on what’s emerging as one of spring’s biggest trends, the shorts suit.
While it’s tough to imagine U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ditching her royal blue skirt suit for a shorts suit to announce formal impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump, you never know — things are heating up in Washington.
Meanwhile in Paris, the rain is proving to be quite the runway set piece, from the dystopian mist at Marine Serre, to the downpour at Saint Laurent that let up just in time for the spotlights to turn skyward, all 394 of them, for another one of Vaccarello’s light spectaculars to rival the Eiffel Tower’s twinkling behind it. (He really takes the whole City of Light thing seriously.)
On the runway, it all started with the legs. The spotlights’ skinny beams of light following models’ strides in knee-grazing boots made for the ultimate power moves. Opening looks were long, short and shorter shorts — HotPants short in some cases — in blue denim or black, worn with a ruffled navy blue shirt left unbuttoned to the navel; a banker’s gold

Telfar RTW Spring 2020

There’s a new American in Paris.
New York designer Telfar Clemens kicked off Paris Fashion Week with a multimedia happening that was, appropriately enough, a musing on migration. Not one to do a straight runway show, he presented his coed collection at La Cigale concert hall with a film, a live sonic score by Afro-Parisian DJ Crystallmess, a musical performance by Lancey Foux, and the surprise reveal of a Converse collab (including uber-cool sneaker sandals for men and women) that should help catapult the brand to an even wider audience.
Projected behind models wearing the same outfits that were shown on-screen, the film “The World Isn’t Everything” was the work of Clemens’ buzzy group of creative collaborators, including “Slave Play” playwright Jeremy O. Harris, artists Petra Collins and Juliana Huxtable. Speaking to the idea of migration, borders and belonging, the work featured black men floating on rafts just out of reach of the New York skyline, and “Moonlight” actor Ashton Sanders being interrogated at an airport security checkpoint, among other scenes, all with characters wearing Telfar logo jewelry, T-shirts and bags.
On the runway, the collection set out to rewrite the narrative of American sportswear. Techniques of deconstruction, reconstruction and patchwork were used

Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini RTW Spring 2020

Monte Carlo, late Seventies. Caroline and Stephanie Grimaldi are two beautiful, rich, sometimes scandalous princesses living their best life surfing the international jet set.
These two icons, very different in their style and attitude, were the muses who inspired Lorenzo Serafini’s spring collection. Their looks and their images — Caroline more feminine and polished, Stephanie more tomboy and audacious — were reflected in the duality that Serafini injected into the lineup.
Bold volumes stole the spotlight. Big shoulders gave an Eighties vibe to denim and striped bouclé jackets cinched at the waist with jeweled belts. In keeping with the glamorous vibe, denim was also used to create tweed ruffled corsets layered over white T-shirts, while prom-inspired dresses with puffy details came in florals, as well as solids, such as vibrant red.
The mood got more grown-up when Serafini played with tailoring, sending out a white tuxedo with a big jacket with boxy, strong shoulders and another more fluid style fully embroidered with iridescent sequins. The young and innocent attitude of frilled mini frocks contrasted with the more nocturnal, sharp look of black leather outfits, punctuated by crystals, which were inspired by a picture of Caroline shot by Helmut Newton.
The collection, which also unveiled

Piazza Sempione RTW Spring 2020

Stefano Citron and Federico Piaggi celebrated the joyful, lively spirit of summer with their latest collection, displayed at the brand’s showroom, with its frescoes on the ceiling,
Taking inspiration from Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1960 movie “The Adventure,” filmed on Sicily’s Aeolian Islands, the designers showed uncomplicated, flared cotton dresses and full skirts matched with shirts, all worked in pure white or splashed with abstract prints resembling watery ink stains.
A mannish vibe was felt in suits, with jackets replaced by belted vests and classic sartorial fabrics switched with lightweight shirting textiles.
Discreet elegance prevailed in tunics layered over coordinated culottes, as well as in black and white tops with graphic necklines and built-in belts.

Versace RTW Spring 2020

Talk about a J.Lo jaw-drop.
The diva herself closed out the Versace show Friday night, reprising what may have been the first viral fashion moment in history with an IRL runway walk for the ages.
It was the second time in the spotlight for the jungle print gown, which became an instant icon when Jennifer Lopez wore it to the Grammy Awards in 2000. Not only was the plunge-front dress depth-defying (How did it stay on then — or now —on the age-defying actress?), it changed history, when news traveled from Hollywood red carpet to Internet superhighway.
“I’m kind of proud to have inspired Google,” said Donatella Versace with her trademark humility during a pre-show preview.
Google was still in its infancy, just two years old, when fans burned up cords and cables searching for “Jennifer Lopez’s green dress.” When their queries weren’t turning up what they really wanted — a picture! — the tech giant realized it needed a new visual search engine, and developed Google Image. “For the first time, fashion inspired technology,” said the designer, noting it was also a validating moment for her personally, when she realized the dress had stopped the world. (She took the design helm at Versace

Bottega Veneta RTW Spring 2020

Few designer arrivals are instantly momentous. Bottega Veneta’s Daniel Lee is finding that out.
Lee’s appointment at Bottega came with high expectations buoyed by his Phoebe-centric résumé; he was a longtime assistant to Phoebe Philo, now on industry hiatus (because no one wants to think she’s exited fashion for good). Insider-celebrated, he was also green in the ways of fronting a major brand, and in connecting to women on the emotional level that made Philo more cult goddess that mere fashion star.
Would Lee command a slice of the Phoebe-loving population longing for courtship? After his second runway on Thursday, the answer remains a giant question mark. One point is very clear: Lee has a long way to go, both in clarifying his vision and refining his skills. After the show, Lee said this collection was about “solidifying icons…the things we’ve become known for.”
But what are the Bottega icons? There’s a very specific, very famous handbag treatment that Lee has translated to clothes and shoes. And he listed, “the pouch bag, the kind of ease, reality of dressing.” But are those identifiable codes? In fact, does Bottega really have a ready-to-wear iconography? If yes, what is it, and how does he advance

Jil Sander RTW Spring 2020

Balance is a goal that most everyone aspires to reach in life. Probably one of the most difficult to attain, considering the chaotic lifestyle of today. But a fashion show, if considered as a representation of tiny fragments of life, gives us that peaceful feel that, for a handful of minutes, everything is in its own place and the balance is found. This happened on Wednesday night at Milan’s Brera Academy where Jil Sander unveiled a beautiful collection, which seemed to center on the concept of balance.
Creative directors Lucie and Luke Meier succeeded in finding harmony among contrasting forces, giving shape to a lineup, which felt personal, distinctive, inventive.
The minimal rigor of sartorial suits, injected with an almost severe, mannish attitude, was counterbalanced by the liquid fluidity of draped dresses with high-neck collars and long sleeves. The conceptual vibe of most intricate constructions and deconstructions, as well as the paper-like feel of textured, more rigid fabrics, were juxtaposed to the desirable, essential approachability of a pleated tunic top with a crisscross detail on the back layered over a matching skirt in a different white tone and the liquid fluidity of a black and blue silk V-neck frock.

Wright Le Chapelain RTW Spring 2020

In a small alleyway not far from the newly opened Standard hotel near King’s Cross station, Wright Le Chapelain debuted its first on-calendar collection in a refreshing way. Models were doing community work, planting plants and cleaning garbage off the street, instead of standing still against the wall.
Imogen Wright and Vincent Le Chapelain, the duo behind of brand, said this was their way of participating in the circular economy. Showing in a public venue that engages with residents and commuters not only generates zero waste but gives back to society.
The collection worn by these “social workers” is all made in London in collaboration with local tailors and seamstresses. Their thoughtful play on men’s wardrobe classics included a men’s dress shirt reinterpreted as a bias-cut wrap dress, while a check jacket was deconstructed into a panel skirt. 
The two met while studying MA Fashion at Central Saint Martins, and decided to launch a brand together in 2017. It’s still early days, but as more young brands go back to tailoring and aim to dress members of the business world, Wright Le Chapelain might soon start a style evolution with the likes of Eftychia and Peter Do.

Richard Quinn RTW Spring 2020

Lines snaked around the street outside East London’s York Hall, where the spring 2020 Richard Quinn show was set to take place, with guests waiting more than 40 minutes post the scheduled start time to be let in.
“It better be worth it” was the general consensus.
It most definitely was.
The feeling of fantasy and the grandiose were apparent from the moment you set foot in the old sport’s hall, transformed with a big crystal chandelier, blush pink carpet and arrays of flowers, next to which the Philharmonia orchestra was set up to play live.
Richard Quinn’s intention for this event was straight-forward: to put on a real show and encourage his guests to dream during these challenging times. There was no specific muse or philosophical thought process, just fashion for the sake of fashion, in its purest, most artistic form.
He telegraphed his message by dialing up the volume and the glamour, in an even bolder way than previous seasons. He super-sized the bow embellishments or the sleeves on his much-loved puff-sleeve minis; added extra layers of tulle under bold leopard print balloon dresses for an added dose of drama; mixed florals with feathers and piled up the crystals on the trims of

Moschino Sets Pre-fall 2020 Show Location

Great minds think alike.
Jeremy Scott will be staging his pre-fall 2020 women’s Moschino show Dec. 9 in the subway. But unlike Tom Ford’s moody spring 2020 extravaganza that had showgoers sitting on the platform of the abandoned Bowery station, Scott’s show will be inside the subway cars at the New York Transit Museum, the country’s largest museum devoted to urban public transportation history.
“I have never had a Moschino show in New York besides H&M and I thought there would be nothing more quintessential New York than the subway,” said Scott, who lived in the city when he attended Parsons School of Design. “I love all the people and characters you experience and the way it’s a melting pot of style. When I was in school, I remember the subway being a spotlight when you were dressed up, because it’s very brightly lit. It’s already like a runway.”

At the museum, guests will also be able to learn about the history of the New York City subway, bus and commuter rail systems. “They have all the old subway cars going from the 1940s, when they had wicker seats, and all the ads from
