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.
And it was an undercurrent this season at the

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.

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.
What followed was an explosion of creativity, with Katrantzou paying homage to her country’s history – and writing a new

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

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.

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.

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

Duro Olowu RTW Spring 2020

In the midst of back-to-back shows, London-based Duro Olowu offered a select few showgoers and friends of his brand, including artists, historians and curators, the opportunity to have a break and view a collection at a very different type of pace.
Taking over a Mayfair town house that resembled a giant cabinet of curiosities, Olowu sat in the living room alongside his guests talking through each garment, as two models took turns showcasing the looks in his spring 2020 collection.
Françoise Gilot — an artist, the former wife of Picasso and “the only one who managed to leave him” — was Olowu’s main point of reference, for the effortless way she carried herself.
He married references to Gilot’s elegant style with the energy of Eighties’ dance-hall music to create a more current look of his own that was luxurious and laid-back.
“I think that if I found myself in Kingston in the Eighties with Françoise Gilot, we’d have a great time,” said Olowu. “She’d make elaborate clothes seem practical and that’s what we tried to achieve here.”
He worked some of the colors and patterns of Gilot’s sketches, drawn during trips to Venice, India and Senegal — into patchwork coats that juxtaposed painterly and non-painterly

Eftychia RTW Spring 2020

It’s only been a year-and-a-half since Greek designer Eftychia Karamolegkou launched her brand, yet she already has managed to impress well-known tastemakers. Phoebe Philo snatched multiple looks from the brand within days after the merchandise hit the store. Gaia Repossi also places personal orders with her. With her approval, Eftychia seems to be a new guiding star for the Philophile, the nickname for those who are loyal to Philo’s vision at Celine.
Karamolegkou said she pretty much got tailoring figured out by herself one project after another through her bachelor and master of arts courses at Central Saint Martins. Her collection for spring 2020 is her take on Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper.” Instead of 12 men and one woman, however, there were 12 women and one man at the presentation. “The guy is Judas,” said the designer.
As a businesswear brand, Eftychia offers fine tailoring pieces and outerwear as well as blouses and skirts for a woman in power at a reasonable price point compared to, say, The Row or Bottega Veneta. It’s refreshing to see a brand that actually makes well-designed and wearable clothing coming from London once in a while.

16Arlington RTW Spring 2020

The British fashion industry might be pondering big issues this season, including the mammoth 870-million-pound potential cost of Brexit, but the 16Arlington design duo Marco Capaldo and Kikka Cavenati offered a much-needed antidote to the gloom with a presentation-cum-dance-party that began London Fashion Week on a high note.
Drawing on their Italian roots, Capaldo and Cavenati looked to one of their all-time favorite muses, pop singer Raffaella Carrà. Channeling her high-octane glamour, they transformed a dark, central London basement into a joyful scene that was reminiscent of Italy in the Sixties: Models sporting sharp bobs and playful head scarves danced their way through the show like no one was watching.
The clothes telegraphed the same message of pure fun, with beaded jumpsuits, feather gowns galore, as well as lamé suits and cocooned minidresses featuring a Sixties-inspired swirl print.
“It was a nice time to bring our heritage in. Raffaella Carrà is the Italian gift that just keeps on giving; she is this exuberant, insanely talented performer, singer, dancer and we just wanted to inject that in our clothes,” said Capaldo. “Her music is all about feel-good and that’s aligned with 16Arlington, we want to be that beam of light in these dark times.”

A.L.C. RTW Spring 2020

“For me, the story is these beautiful acid pastels, a new modern femininity and reinventing favorite classics from safari to a shirtdress,” Andrea Lieberman said of her upbeat spring line rooted in reality.
Upon first glance, the collection appeared colorful and charming, easy and romantic, inclusive of wardrobe enhancers in clean and modern silhouettes. She built up puff sleeves and other sleeve treatments on sweet tops and dresses meant to empower. “There’s something about having some volume in the sleeve. It’s about redefining proportions,” she added. A leather ruched top and flirty skirt set was a great example of how she brought a modern edge to feminine shapes.
Leaning on a thread of playfulness, acidic pastel colors topped tailoring and essential knit tops, while the print of the season was a hand-painted abstract butterfly rendered in two colorways. She riffed on men’s wear stripes in offbeat ways, and injected ease into a safari dress and skirt with soft flounces. Knits, too, were lightweight and fun, and included a beautiful pink pointelle dress and cream crochet set. “For me it’s about taking fabrics that we love, and putting more textural detail onto it. We’re definitely looking for that versatile, effortless moment for our

Marc Jacobs RTW Spring 2020

In his show notes and during a preview on Wednesday night, Marc Jacobs acknowledged the Sept. 11 anniversary. For anyone who worked in this industry 18 years ago in a show-related capacity, the two are inextricably linked. “Where were you when you heard the news?” The answer is at or en route to a show; working at a show; casting a show, doing something show. (I was traveling down Fifth Avenue to Bryant Park in a taxi and saw the Towers in flames in front of me.) Jacobs heard the news in a phone call from a reporter — myself. He’d slept in since the night before, he’d thrown a huge postshow party on Pier 54 with views of the Towers. In the moment, carefree reverie. In the aftermath — bacchanal before carnage — a stark reminder of how quickly life can change, and of how little control we have of our destinies.
Heavy material in the lead-up to a fashion show (or in a piece about a fashion show), but given the timing of Jacobs’ show and party 18 years ago, it would have been odd for him not to reminisce. He lost a friend in the attacks, David Rivers.

Monse RTW Spring 2020

Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim went bucolic for spring.
Their inspiration — a farmer’s market — brought a lively sense of serenity into their lineup, which in keeping with the brand’s signature aesthetic played with deconstructions and twisted cuts.
Charming botanical patterns were splashed on the panels of jeans and chinos; printed on silk shirts, and mixed and matched with striped fabrics with a rustic feel for asymmetric dresses.
Perfectly combining a dose of edgy design with a sense of comfort and effortless coolness, the collection also featured gardener-apron-inspired skirts and cutout sweatshirts featuring prints developed in collaboration with Renee’s Garden, a supplier of heirloom and certified organic seeds, international hybrids and open-pollinated varieties.
Tailoring got a fresh makeover with applied utility pockets and intentionally unfinished elements, while jersey evening dresses looked equally chic and comfortable.
Injected with an intriguing sense of escapism, the Monse collection will bring the joy of the countryside to the hippest streets of the world next spring.

Lela Rose RTW Spring 2020

“Do you like our ‘yellow brick rose?!’” Lela Rose excitedly giggled just before her spring show. The designer was referring to the runway of yellow rose petals, surrounded by white tablecloth-clad little round tables topped with various baked goods. “Café Lela,” as she called it, was set against the backdrop of New York’s cityscape and waterfront on Pier 64. 
The New York City skyline — or rather vintage postcards of the island — served as Rose’s jumping-off point for the collection. The show opened with literal takes — the cityscape printed on a pleated cotton cape-back dress or Central Park splashed across a belted cotton pale-pink number — and ended more abstract, with a layered pale pink over gold tulle gown that emulated the golden hour of sunset. 
Roses came big and small, embroidered or printed onto signature flirty cotton voile — the designer’s favorite fabric of the season — on dresses and sets with overcoats. A lightweight tiered dress with tricolored blooms and curled ruffles made for a strong look. Outside of florals, a navy and white crochet-knit dress with carwash hem felt fresh, while a blue point d’espirit blouson gown conveyed effortless romance and the “celebration of the city in

Jason Wu Collection RTW Spring 2020

“It’s about beauty. I have never been edgy and cool. I don’t know how to do it. I want to do my best version of beauty,” said Jason Wu backstage at his spring show, held at Pier 17 in a postindustrial venue with large windows offering a spectacular view of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Is there anything wrong with wanting to create beautiful clothes? Not at all. Especially when a designer like Wu succeeds in interpreting what is classic, sophisticated and feminine with a fresh, lively touch. 
This season, Wu wanted to give a different twist to the idea of beauty he normally conveys with his clothes, which usually have a polished, “perfect” look. So he played with hand-washed fabrics, textures, sun-bleached effects, raw cut edges and intentionally unfinished details to give his elegant creations a lived-in, poetic and intriguing vibe.
The mood of slightly decadent romanticism was inspired by the images of fragile, dried flowers of Wu’s friend, photographer Maxime Poiblanc. 
His nocturnal-looking flowers were printed on a washed-silk pencil skirt worn with a coordinated bralette and a lightweight trenchcoat, as well as with an exquisitely draped dress punctuated by tiny crystal embroideries.
Leather was also treated to obtain an imperfect, wrinkled

Adeam RTW Spring 2020

Hanako Maeda’s designs often have a personal connotation, and when conceptualizing her spring outing, she choose the place in Japan her parents are from — Yokohama — a seaside city and one of the first places in the country to open to the west, as inspiration. “It’s similar to Cape Cod in the U.S.,” she said of Yokohama. It’s a place where she spent a lot of time as a child, and judging from her collection, a place that clearly left an imprint on her.
Maeda is a conceptual designer who takes a theme and meditates on it, ushering in new silhouettes and ideas, all variations on her laser-focused ideas. For spring, she expanded on the idea of nautical through her signature East meets West lens.
Several times throughout the show, a piece was shown more than once — for example, a navy chunky knit with a white stripe on the sleeve and flap collar that had a detachable shoulder detail. Once it was shown with the sleeves buttoned up, and then later on in a sandy colorway with the sleeves unbuttoned, forming a new shape. The variations permutated the silhouette, giving her customer a convertibility, another theme she often riffs on.

Vfiles RTW Spring 2020

Once again fashion and music collided at the energetic Vfiles collective show, which took place on Thursday night at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Performances by Rico Nasty, Erika Jayne and Brooke Candy, as well as YG, animated the event, which was organized in collaboration with London-based marketplace app Depop and which highlighted the talent of the four emerging designers selected from among an international group who submitted their applications this past summer.
The sculptures of artist Anna Uddenberg featuring women who either collapse on their suitcases or writhe out of them served as the starting point for Chinese designer Di Du, who recently graduated from the Royal College of Fine Arts Antwerp. A combination of dreamy, whimsical colors such as lilac and pink mixed with deconstructed lines and silhouettes sat at the core of her collection, which felt like the wardrobe of a space anime’s heroine. Standout pieces included teddy bear cowboy pants matched with an armor-like cutout top, a padded off-the-shoulder bodysuit with exaggerated sleeves, as well as a Seventies net mini frock featuring the halter neck made of a plastic bag handle.
Wesley Harriott’s designer Ricky Harriott, who is based in London, wanted to portray an empowered femininity with his well-executed lineup.

Red Valentino RTW Spring 2020

Pierpaolo Piccioli captured the most immediate and lively spirit of a never-ending summer with his charming collection for the Red Valentino brand.
Delicacy and femininity joined a chic metropolitan appeal in the fresh eyelet pieces, spanning from miniskirts worn with cropped matching blouses to generously cut parkas paired with lace bottoms. Mainly worked in black and white, the chic cotton style also welcomed bright accents, including the vivid red of a pretty halter neck dress enriched by floral white embroideries.
An exotic note was introduced via the vibrant prints of tropical flowers and birds splashed on flowing frocks and pajama sets, while butterfly-shaped patchwork details added a cute touch to denim designs, such as a slipdress and a jumpsuit revealing an exposed back and ruffled embellishments at the shoulders.
The brand’s signature craftsmanship stood out on cotton crochet skirts and bikinis, exuding a free-spirited, boho-chic vibe.
Versatile at heart, the lineup offered plenty of options for the Red Valentino girls, who next summer will also have the chance to shine bright at pool parties thanks to the allover sequined frocks — their hyper-feminine appeal exalted by romantic bow ties.

Willy Chavarria Men’s Spring 2020

Sex, love, glamour and immigration.
All these hot topics, mixed with masculine queer culture, set the tone for Willy Chavarria’s runway return to New York — and boy, was he missed.
Known for his Chicano heritage vibes, Chavarria’s former stint in the Nineties, the creation of “The Love Garage,” a club in San Fransisco that embraced rave culture and gritty house music, served as one of the key components of his take on what minimalism can mean.
In this case, the usually big, oversize silhouette that has defined Chavarria took a sophisticated turn that still managed to maintain a tough edge.

The first portion of the show showcased standouts such as a black washed satin robe with matching shorts, along with an array of flared and high-waisted denim numbers, often paired with souvenir jackets or matching oversize boxy shirts. Quilted leather handbags, an item typically associated with high luxury, adorned most of the models, along with black and gold chains used as necklaces, belts and handbags, which provided a refined touch.
Part two featured a collaboration with athletic brand K-Swiss: a Nineties California Chicano tennis prep collection — oversize pastels in blue and pink with a bit of neon that enhanced sweatshirts, baggy shorts and

For the spring collection of Isabel Marant’s Étoile line, the designer worked her trademark volumes into a fashionable lineup that melded seduction with comfort. Amped-up shoulders added heft — on a feminine, embroidered peasant blouse or gray acid washed jean jackets and vests. There were a lot of one-piece looks, including a vest-shorts combo in a faded tie-dye print, a long trouser jumpsuit in a western-inspired floral pattern and a dark boiler suit, cinched at the ankle, with ample volumes on the shoulders and arms. Fluidity came in the form of airy blouses and flower-printed dresses in silk chiffon while structured numbers included a double-breasted flannel suit and quilted jackets. In the footwear department, choices included ivory cowboy boots or studded white wide-leg heels.

Spring showers make love flower… When Spring Hadley breezes into Bliss, Texas, Waylon Kendall knows she’s trouble with a capital T. And trouble is the last thing he needs when he’s working hard to fill his daddy’s boots as the new sheriff. He doesn’t have time for frivolous fun with a sassy woman who can’t take no for an answer. But when Spring finagles her way into a position as his new assistant, Waylon realizes there’s much more to her than meets the eye. She brightens his mundane life with her sunny smile and kind heart, and he suddenly wants springtime each and every day. Spring Hadley isn’t trouble. She’s a free spirit who sometimes forgets important things—like locking up the clothing store she owns with her sisters. When her sisters get mad and call her an irresponsible ditz, she decides to go on a camping adventure to prove that she can make it just fine without her family. Unfortunately, her Jeep breaks down, and Spring ends up stranded in Bliss with no money. A temp job is what she needs, and she’s determined to get it—even if it means tangling with the new sheriff. A sheriff who is hotter than a jalapeno pepper with kisses just as spicy. But when her criminal father blows into town, trouble begins, accusations fly, and the truth comes out. Can a straight-laced lawman and a free-spirited woman make it to the church on time? Or will a secret tear through their spring romance like a Texas tornado?

The Best Haircuts to Try This Spring, According to Experts

You’ve been asking your barber for “the usual” for too long now. These three styles are trending for spring, but they’re also fairly low-maintenance and easy to wear for most men. Whether you’re going for something with a little length or shorter on the sides, here are the best spring haircuts and styles to consider this season, according to three experts.

Fade

Grown-out Fade

“Instead of that buzzed, faded look, where the sides go from thick at the top to sparse, opt for more allover evenness on the sides. It’s a very tailored, groomed look that’s still short.” — Oscar Blandi, celebrity stylist

Totally Textured 

“Have your barber use shears and razors instead of clippers for a rounder shape. To style, use a foam or pomade and blow dry and shape hair.” — Paul Wilson, American Crew’s global artistic director

Buzz 2.0

Buzz Cut 2.0

“For fine hair, a choppy cut with a little length in front keeps you sharp. For texture, I like Acqua di Parma Serum—it’s great for all the hair on your head.” — Natalia Bruschi, celebrity groomer

How to Clean Up Your Facial Hair for Spring

If you want to clean up your facial hair for spring, look no further than the 1990s, says John Flemal of Urban Lift Salon in Chicago.


5 Handsome Leather Wallets for Spring 2019

For some middle ground between clean-shaven and a lumberjack beard, heed Flemal’s advice. These three styles shape up your facial hair, whether you want to tame an unruly beard, accentuate sideburns, or rock a mustache.

Sideburns sketch

1. Strong Sideburns

It’s a great transition for growing out a fade. The farther below the earlobe, the less conservative. The L-shape is trending, too; try this only with dense facial hair.

Beard Sketch

2. Beard With Attitude

Long, unruly beards are a cold-weather look. Hack yours into shape, leaving it thick on the sides and under the chin, and cleaning up around your lips.

3. ’Stache and Stubble 

If you opt for a mustache, go small and pair it with stubble. Gradually trim a long beard short until you reach desired hairiness.

5 Handsome Leather Wallets for Spring 2019

Every self-respecting man needs a wallet. If yours is threadbare, dirty from years of use, or—dare we say—held together by Velcro, you need an upgrade. (Pronto if you’re guilty of the Velcro…)


The Most Stylish Belts for Every Occasion

Of course finding the right wallet isn’t always easy. Some guys are minimalists, while others need serious storage solutions that minimize bulk. There’s a bevy of different materials, styles, and durabilities out there, so we’ve narrowed down a selection for every man. Here are our favorites of spring 2019.

Navy and tan: It’s a classic color pairing that never fails to look sharp. True to its name, the Minimalist Billfold is a slim wallet with hidden card slots to minimize bulk and stretch over time. We love that the wallet is produced via small-batch manufacturing with exclusive materials (like 100% full-grain Spanish cowhide and dead stock fabrics). But you know what that means: You’ve got to get it while you can.

Spring Suiting: How to Get Prince Harry’s Royal Baby Debut Look

World, meet Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the latest addition to the British royal family. He was born on May 6, but his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (better known as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle) revealed his name today at St. George’s Hall in Windsor Castle, the BBC reports. Shortly afterward, the announcement was made on the couple’s official Instagram page.

Gear Up for Summer at This Huge Perry Ellis Sale—Up to 72% Off Suits!

According to the BBC, young Archie is seventh in line for the throne, but his parents chose not to give him an official royal title. Instead, he’ll go by the less formal moniker of Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor. The name Archie came as something of a surprise, since it has no known connections with any other member of the royal family. While introducing him to members of the press earlier today, new parents Prince Harry and Meghan reflected on the joys of getting to know their newborn son.

“He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm,” Meghan told the BBC. “He’s been the dream.”

“I don’t know who he gets that from,” Prince Harry joked.


How to Get Chris Evans' Superhero-Level Style

While their sleeping baby was certainly the main event today, the Duke and Duchess both won praise for their stylish outfits. Many were impressed with Meghan’s white dress, which didn’t hide her postpartum baby bump, CNN reports. Prince Harry was no slouch either, appearing before the cameras in a sharp light grey suit and navy blue tie.

The thing about Todd Snyder clothing is not only does it look great, it’s also extremely well-crafted. Much of it’s made from fantastic materials and clever patterns you just don’t see anywhere else. From supple chinos to killer blazers to Todd’s legendary collaborations, this is couture that’s not just stylish, but made for everyday. It’s affordable, too.

The Freshest New Spring Colognes for Men

We should stop making resolutions in January, and instead time them for spring. Everything is uplifting once the clouds clear and the flowers bloom. Our minds open, along with our senses, and optimism smells all the sweeter now than in the doldrums of winter. This season is also when the best spring colognes make their debut—or when the classic ones come out of hiding and add even more zest to the air. Notes of bergamot, lavender, vetiver, and eucalyptus hint at warmer days ahead, which is why we love that they shine in these seven scents.


Good Hair Day: The 5 Best Hair Products for Men

If you’re in the market for a new signature scent, here’s an intoxicating roster of new bottles, as well as some rousing classics (plus one remix). These are the spring colognes that should be on every man’s radar.


The 7 Best Customized Hair, Skin, and Cologne Brands for Men

 

1. Louis Vuitton Les Colognes

In 2018, Louis Vuitton’s launched its first men’s fragrances, an uplifting and dimensional collection of five, called Les Parfums Pour Homme. Soon after, the wintry warming Ombre Nomad debuted, which brings us to Spring 2019. Another collection of scents just launched, and this time it’s a unisex trio. There’s the crisp Afternoon Swim (orange, bergamot, mandarin), sprightly Sun Song (orange blossom, citron, musk), and smoky Cactus Garden (maté tea, bergamot, lemongrass). No two are alike, and any one of them is a bright, buoyant springboard into the new season.

[$ 250, each; louisvuitton.com]

2. Givenchy Gentleman Cologne

Gentleman has been a cornerstone scent since the 1970s, but Givenchy keeps finding ways to innovate and remix the classic. The latest carries an iris pulse, with notes of bergamot and lemon to start, and vetiver, rosemary, and musk to round it out. Whether you’ve followed every iteration of Gentleman or this is your first foray, it’s one impression that will last.

[$ 88; bloomingdales.com]

3. Jack Black Turbo Body Spray

You might wonder why there’s a body spray in this roundup at all. But if you did a blind test on Jack Black’s newest launch—which summons the same scent in its Turbo body wash—you’d rank it highly next to some top-shelf colognes. Its key notes are spearmint, eucalyptus, and rosemary, a light but long-lasting trio that lifts spirits like a morning shower. (We still advise on taking a shower, though.)

[$ 32; getjackblack.com]

4. Polo Ralph Lauren Blue (Gold Blend)

RL’s special-edition spring hatchling is a descendent of the classic Polo Blue, so it has the same framework: Ginger, melon, and vetiver provide aromatic architecture, while it distinguishes and deepens itself with notes of ginger, sage, patchouli, amber, and incense. It’s a stellar spring and summer scent, evoking something like a weekend lake reprieve, or a beach wedding. Lastly, Gold Blend’s blue bottle + gold trim make the same statement as the scent itself: You’re a man of many layers, and you’re keen on aesthetics.

[$ 76-$ 98; ralphlauren.com]

5. Hermès Terre d’Hermès

Few “fresh” fragrances are as layered as Terre d’Hermès: It has the crispness of orange, the bitterness of grapefruit, the spiciness of pepper, and the depth of cedar, patchouli, resin, and vetiver. It’s a recipe that reads like a fall or winter scent, since so many of those ingredients warm like a blanket. Instead, Terre d’Hermès plays out like a wind-blown cocktail of fresh sheets and freshly cut grass.

[$ 137; hermes.com]

6. Dior Sauvage

In Dior’s spicy spring staple, bergamot and lavender combine to counter the strength of pepper and ambroxan. It’s intended to evoke “the hour when the wolves come out and the sky is set ablaze”, which is to say “Here’s your nighttime spring scent, for the werewolf inside you”. Proceed with reckless abandon.

[$ 95; dior.com]

7. Claus Porto #2 Auga Geranium

Lisbon’s botanic garden was the muse behind this fragrance, one of five in a Portugal-inspired collection from the soap, shave, and scentmakers. Bergamot and lavender kick things off, evaporating into the eartiness of patchouli, vetiver, and moss. Consider this your green light to evoke spring—specifically, Portuguese spring—all year round.

The 7 Best Versatile Spring Sneakers for Active Guys On the Go

If you’re ready for all-day comfort and all-weather versatility, then put those big, heavy boots back in the closet until fall. Where the gym and the trail meet the sidewalk, that’s where you’ll find these seven versatile spring sneakers, perfect for active guys on the go.


9 Non-Gym Sneakers to Add to Your Wardrobe

Cross trainers are all the rage these days, and with good reason. Their versatility is the key; whether you’re crushing a HIIT workout, pounding squats, or just pounding the pavement, a good cross training sneaker should take you wherever you need to go. They also provide excellent support for whatever adventure awaits.

Most of these options take advantage of the trendy blend of knit comfort with performance details. Responsive footbeds, fantastic support, and breathable and lightweight materials were our touchstones in putting together this list. All-day comfort was a must.


10 Casual Wardrobe Essentials for Men

As with most sneakers, there are plenty of color and style options to personalize any of these shoes. We chose these subtle colorways, full of blacks, greys, greens, and blues, so you can wear these sneakers most anywhere. In the right environment, you could even wear them to the office.

No matter where your next adventure takes you, tackle it head-on in one of these fantastic, versatile spring sneakers for active guys.

New Balance Fresh Foam Cruz v2 Knit

Available in four colorways at 29 percent off, version two of the popular Fresh Foam Cruz casual sneaker is great for running—or just strolling.

The Only Pants You Need This Spring

Fashion comes and goes, but a solid pair of everyday trousers never goes out of style. We love our denim, but jeans aren’t appropriate for every occasion. And chinos can’t take the punishment of everyday wear. We’ve been rocking our Flint and Tinder 365s for a few years now, and can safely report they’re among the most comfortable and durable pants in our closet. Certainly, the most used.


Not a Shorts Guy? These Are the Summer Pants for You

New for 2019, Flint and Tinder’s 365s—available exclusively at Huckberry ($ 98)—have unleashed even more options that make them the perfect pants for everyday. With your choice of Slim or Straight cuts, inseam sizing options, and a slew of fresh colors to choose from, there’s a reason these twills are so appropriately named. We can wear them anywhere, and with anything, every day of the year.

Huckberry 365
Huckberry

We’ve written about 365s before, and were impressed with their softness, versatility, and durability. We also liked their neutral earth-y tones.

Soft and stylish, yet durable and tough, we’ve worn our 365s to the office as well as the bar—and felt comfortable in them every step of the way. We’ve even worn them in the yard and doing light maintenance on the motorcycle. No complaints.

What’s New?

What’s more, Flint and Tinder 365s are now available in inseam options from 30-34 inches, to make sure every guy gets his proper fit. (Waist sizes range from 28″ to 38″). Flint and Tinder also offers up three new colors for 2019, for a total of seven neutral shades that will work as well with a plain white T as they do with a casual button-down. The straight cut also delivers more room.

365
Huckberry


The Best Khaki Pants for Men

But apparently guys had been asking F and T for a slim-fit 365 for a while now, though. And here they are. More snug through the thigh and particularly in the calf, the Slim 365s’ tapered design is slightly more stylish than its Straight sibling. Both options are fantastic, though, and the 3 percent Lycra adds enough stretch to make them both super-comfortable and versatile.

HB
Huckberry

The only downside is, having both in our arsenal has certainly made the morning decision of “Which pants should I wear today” that much more confounding.

With a wider variety of sizes and colors, and for a pant that can surely be worn 365 days a year, Flint and Tinder 365s are worth every penny. We’ve got some on today—and probably will tomorrow, too. Check ’em out.

Get it: Pick up Flint and Tinder 365 pants ($ 98) exclusively at Huckberry.

Single father and widower Ryan Howard has zero interest in the movie being filmed in Pine Harbour or the high maintenance stars staying in the cottages at the end of his lane. He's just barely holding on to the raw remains of his life and the fantasy world being concocted around him is, as far as he's concerned, a complete waste of time and energy. The one bright light in his life is an intern on the set, and their quiet conversations at the end of the day on his back porch. Hope Creswell hates her life, too, which is entirely unfair because she’s blessed beyond measure. She’s at the top of her acting career, a Hollywood A-list star, and surrounded by people that mean well. But Ryan makes her laugh, and cry, and before she can explain her double life, he kisses her.

These hot little minxes were getting ready for their Xmas party when the guys finally showed up. These dudes give these tight and tiny teens exactly what they want – dick in a box! The girls never saw it coming – but boy were they happy with their gifts! They sucked, stroked and fucked these holiday cocks with all the Yuletide spirit they could muster and in the end both of these slutty little elves got their mouths and faces covered in spunk! Happy Holidays from all of us!

These sexy babes were hacking away when they’re discovered by their biggest rivals! The guys were ready to fuck some shit up – but instead settled on fucking some pussy instead. There was a nerd orgy going on as two chicks were getting plowed on a table! The guys inserted their hard drives deep into some free slots and made sure the girls never tried hacking again. In the end, their faces were soaked with spunk and these chicks were more than happy to lick it up!

One of our overseas studs met up with these 3 Euro teens in the Czech Republic. Who knew that these Prague girls came stacked with such big asses? While driving they spotted a guy and got him in the van. Right away, Alexis ripped his pants off and went to town on his lovestick with her pigtailed homegirl! This lucky hitchhiker fucked Alexis’ pussy while her friend came in and took over with her mouth until he finally came all over Alexis’ face and her friend’s mouth!

Cassidy and her friends were busy making a special treat for some special dudes on Valentine’s day. They soon discovered they had the same Valentine! As payback, they blindfold him and had him taste test their muffins and cake! They each suck his cock, before Cassidy jumped on the counter looking to get fucked by that fat cock! Her homegirl got in on the action too! In the end, Cassidy and her friends made sure to get all the frosting out of his tube!

Watch the Full Length, High Quality Movie!

Spring Means Prom!

2015-04-06-1428347291-16960-grandmarch.jpg

April is here, spring is arriving around the country and the end of the school year is no longer a distant speck on the horizon. High school seniors are finalizing college choices, selecting trade schools, filling out job applications, and determining what the next stage of life will bring. Amidst all this is time for some diversion and fun – the school Prom. This view shows the Grand March and dance floor, complete with spectacular streamers, of an unidentified school circa 1950, photographed by Al Heitman.

10 Styles We’re Craving For Spring

If there were ever a season that had us itching for some retail therapy, spring would be it. (Sorry, goose-down jacket, but you’re going into the incinerator.) In preparation for those glorious warmer days, we’ve surveyed the market and rounded up our top ten pieces.

The Ankle-Wrap Flats
Look for a pointed or peep toe. And save the bows for your kindergartner–grown women should be tied in knots. Get the look.

The Matching Denim Set
The bottom piece can vary (wide-leg pants, pencil midi skirt, culottes)– the key is topping it off with something fresh– like a boxy chambray top or tank. Think of it as the everywoman’s denim jumpsuit. Get the look.

Head-To-Toe Floral Is Our Spring Uniform

Though floral always seems to be “in,” the blooming print is reborn practically every spring on the runways. This season, it’s popping up as a bright and wonderfully feminine print, with and designers like Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Kors pushing the print from head-to-toe. We’re ready to live in an all-floral uniform as sunnier skies arrive.

But this vivid print can be decidedly hard to wear full-body without looking like a busy hotel curtain. We partnered with Nordstrom to round up some ladies who nail head-to-toe floral, making it look chic, effortless and season-perfect. On these women, floral is definitely not your grandma’s print. Better take notes.

____________

We’re excited to try out these fashion-forward takes on floral. Nordstrom is gearing up for spring 2015 with a spotlight on fresh trends like this one — check out what they’re excited about, from petaled prints to strappy sandals, @nordstrom.
