The Reracs RTW and Men’s Fall 2019

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

Keisukeyoshida RTW Fall 2019

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

Malamute RTW Fall 2019

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

Dressedundressed RTW Fall 2019

Name: Dressedundressed
Main message: Takeshi Kitazawa’s spring presentation was part runway show, part performance art, with models emerging on the runway in pairs before engaging in various interactions in front of a simple set: drinking a cup of water, swapping jackets, cutting open a feather pillow, or one presenting the other with a piece of paper on which was written “do something boring.” All this took place to a voiceover soundtrack of men describing their dreams, but the significance of it all was not immediately clear.
Kitazawa sent out tailored or wide-leg trousers with high waists together with tiny cropped tops and jackets. There were shirts with sheer chest panels, bandage tube tops, tailored coats, a leather biker jacket and trench, and suit jackets with key fobs safety pinned to them. Many looks were pantless, instead including only a pair of briefs or a bodysuit. As with most of Dressedundressed’s collections, everything was unisex and in neutral shades of black, white and beige. Half of the models wore black masks with silver eyelets to see through, which together with belts worn on wrists, gave the offering slight BDSM undertones.
The result: The clothes were well cut and there was some interesting proportion play, but the collection

Louis Vuitton RTW Fall 2019

Since Nicolas Ghesquière presented his debut collection for Louis Vuitton inside the Louvre’s Cour Carrée in 2014, he has often used the historic museum as a backdrop for spectacular sets with a futuristic bent.
On Tuesday evening, guests arrived at the venue to discover a reproduction of another Paris art institution, the Centre Pompidou, built by architects Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, in a groundbreaking style that caused an uproar when it opened in 1977.
Why the world’s largest luxury brand would build a faithful copy of a structure that is only a mile away in real life was something of a mystery — one that Ghesquière cleared after the show: The collection was inspired by his people-watching at Café Beaubourg, which overlooks the vast square in front of the Pompidou.
The eclectic lineup drew on the tribes he spotted there. The fashion crowd was decked out in speckled tweed dresses that framed the neck with extravagant ruffles; the museum staff, in a blend of sharp tailoring and folkloric patchwork sleeveless coats; the former punks, still marching to a colorful New Wave beat, and even the street performers, with many of the models sporting leather Pierrot caps — although disciples of Marcel Marceau

Special Tip Update!

Cyclas RTW Fall 2019

A former fashion director for Japanese concept store United Arrows, Keiko Onose has chosen to eschew seasonal inspirations for the collections she creates for Cyclas, the ready-to-wear brand she founded in 2016.
“Gerhard Richter’s paintings are a continuous inspiration for me,” the designer said backstage about the German artist’s “Abstract Paintings” series, which were already a starting point for last season’s collection. Hints of his work were found on a printed coatdress worn over trousers: “It’s a flower print, but I tried to make it look destroyed, like it’s been crashed or hammered,” Onose said.
Other than the printed silhouette, the color palette for the fall 2019 show — the brand’s first on the official calendar — was a muted mix of khaki, light sage, beige and gray, with bright accents delivered by kooky sequined flats. The clashes came in the form of contrasting textures: an ivory pleated organza apron was tied over crisp cotton trousers, a lamé skirt was paired with a knitted top, and chubby faux fur coats were worn over high-waisted corduroy trousers.
It was quite a cerebral collection: minute details, such as hand stitches replacing traditional seams on a voluminous cream top, were only visible up close — on

Maticevski RTW Fall 2019

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

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

Galvan RTW Fall 2019

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

Antonio Berardi RTW Fall 2019

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

Yves Salomon RTW Fall 2019

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

Karim Adduchi RTW Fall 2019

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

Capucci RTW Fall 2019

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

Hillier Bartley RTW Fall 2019

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

A.F. Vandevorst RTW Fall 2019

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

Joseph RTW Fall 2019

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

Shiatzy Chen RTW Fall 2019

Wang Chen Tsai-Hsia’s recent shift to a younger direction was less obvious here. Sometimes the styling, like layering a harness over a white lace dress and finishing it off with chunky boots, felt a little awkward.
By contrast, a classic couture sensibility took the upper hand in the richly elaborated creations incorporating embroidery, printing and jacquard-weaving techniques. Surface interest ran high.
A romantic Victoriana vibe also came through strongly, including in the blouses with frilly upturned collars — paired with a long white pleated skirt with a school-girl feel on one look — and black embellished dresses, which were pretty.
Spins on the house’s roots included a short take on the cheongsam, a robe coat wrapped with a large silver belt, and a silhouette pairing a gleaming ivory top evoking an antique folkloric Chinese jacket, worn over a shirt with a Mao collar and shorts, all in the same pale palette.
As a metallic gold sheepskin jacket with pale pink cuffs was also part of this eclectic collection.

Noir Kei Ninomiya RTW Fall 2019

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

Lutz Huelle RTW Fall 2019

Out with the jeans — Lutz Huelle was getting tired of them. The designer has been traveling a lot lately — he was recently named top designer at Delpozo and plans to keep his Paris base — which sparked an interest in sprucing things up. Properly. 
“When you get cold in the airport, you sit around for hours, your pants get frumpy. So I was thinking ‘What could I do to make clothes for travellng that are kind of super glamorous extreme but also super easy?’” 
The answer came down the runway, the glamour channeled through shimmery jacquards and bright taffetas, prominent diamond waterfall necklaces — the graphic kind, from the Eighties — as well as his trademark couture volumes including sleeves with an extra puff. 
Thinking about comfort, and those long waits in public places, he provided pockets, hoods and capes — his latest reconstruction of the bomber jacket morphed into handsome, blanket-like capes which were very sleek. Shifting the volumes from the sleeves to the back— built from gathering around the neck — this season’s couture jacket was a bright fuchsia collarless number, and, in his words “more extreme.”

Issey Miyake RTW Fall 2019

“A sudden inspiration invites you into a journey, where unknown sceneries take your breath away; unknown scents captivate you. You find yourself humming songs and getting to know unforgettable tastes, thinking thoughts you never had before. Chance encounters continue to stimulate our creativity,” the show notes at Issey Miyake said.
Here, such encounters included interactions with new fabrics. For fall, designer Yoshiyuki Miyamae incorporated pieces made from a new resin-printed material with an array of colors, called “blink.” Dough Dough, a fabric used for spring, popped up again this season with a wool-like fiber and easily modulated shapes, like a twist or a crumple.
This was a coherent, fun, wearable collection with a lot of texture, bounce and flow giving a joyful feel, from the opening jackets, such as the dusky pink coat with fabric pieces spilling from the collar, to springy dresses with colored patchworklike motifs and undulating lines.
A wavy, pleated navy jacket came paired with a fluid blue, purple, yellow, green and black skirt. A lime-colored wide turtleneck topped a gathered Egyptian-blue skirt — all chance encounters that worked out well, in the end.

Y/Project RTW Fall 2019

You don’t often these days hear Bobby Brown on a fashion show soundtrack, but as Glenn Martens might say, that’s “My Prerogative.” The 1988 hit provided the musical backdrop for his fall collection for Y/Project, which was a celebration of individual expression that expanded the brand’s eveningwear repertoire.
“We do what we want, and we really want to have fun, and we don’t really give that much of a s–t about anything else,” the designer said backstage. “The idea is that we really want to show garments. We don’t want to get stuck in all the hype.”
Known for his wide-ranging historical references and experimental constructions, Martens whirled through inspirations ranging from the Middle Ages to the Seventies, using texture and optical effects to inject the looks with more-or-less subtle erotic overtones.
Masculine herringbone wool coats came with deep, folded sleeves that split open to reveal a faux fur lining, while body-hugging dresses were pieced together from latex strips. Trompe-l’oeil HotPants were in fact stirrup leggings made mostly of sheer tulle.
The jewelry left no room for imagination. Naked bodies wrapped around necks and wrists, and dangled from ears. The sculpted pieces were by Stéphanie D’heygere, the designer behind Y/Project’s signature maxi hoops. “It’s

Josie Natori, Adria de Haume to Be Honored at LOOT 2019 Opening Benefit

The Museum of Arts and Design is gearing up for the 19th installment of “LOOT: MAD About Jewelry.”
The annual event is double-barreled with an exhibition and sale of one-of-a kind contemporary jewelry. Set to bow on April 9, the show will feature the work of 55 up-and-coming and more established international jewelry artists and designers from 18 countries and territories. The majority of the participants will be presenting in New York for the first time.
During the opening benefit gala on April 8, designers and philanthropists Adria de Haume and Josie Natori will be presented with the LOOT awards. Natori recently introduced some signature loot to her own company — unveiling ready-to-wear for her Josie Natori label. Natori is active on boards for the Asian Cultural Council, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s and the Statue of Liberty Ellis Island Foundation (with the second two groups planning their own galas this spring). Honored to receive the award “from a museum that celebrates design art and craft, which I live in and love,” Natori said, “Barbara Tober persuaded me.

Rochas RTW Fall 2019

Alessandro Dell’Acqua has been delving into the couture heritage of Rochas for a couple of seasons, as a form of antidote to the streetwear flooding luxury fashion. Or perhaps he was inspired by the launch of the house’s latest fragrance, Mademoiselle Rochas Couture, a bottle of which was placed on each seat.
For fall, he took the exploration in two directions. The first was fabric, with materials including a heavy speckled tweed, cloqué textures, and a jacquard covered in wool tufts that looked like tiny feathers. The second was cut, via trapeze and cocoon constructions that harked back to the heyday of post-war haute couture.
A roomy black collarless tweed coat was trimmed with a thick band of jet beads at the hem, while a pleated black cloqué skirt was worn with an oversize short-sleeved shirt in ultrafine glossy black leather. Elbow-length black gloves and skintight black leather over-the-knee boots gave the look dramatic bite.
That edge was missing from some of the other outfits, like a duo of tent dresses in frothy tiered organza. Indeed, some teetered dangerously close to period costume, such as a hump-backed black skirt suit, topped with a saucer-like crinkled plastic hat by Stephen Jones. A striking silhouette,

Marques’Almeida RTW Fall 2019

Part of the M.O. for London-based designers Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida has been to create a dialogue with friends and supporters about what they want to wear, enlisting them to model in their shows and letting them choose the looks they feel most comfortable wearing. For fall 2019, former intern and current muse Laurenca led them to their venue, too, back to the gym of her Paris high school, Lycée Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague, so she could go from awkward teen to runway model in a moment of full-circle empowerment.
“We feel a social responsibility for the images we put out there,” Marques said of the duo’s choice to always cast real-world models of varying heights and shapes, adding that too often in fashion there is a disconnect between the runway and real life.
Upbeat with an edge, the collection was full of everyday pieces you might wear out to brunch with friends, or to go shopping with your daughter, as Beyoncé did in Los Angeles just a few weeks ago, matching her Marques’Almeida rainbow-stripe knit pants and sweater to the artwork on the wall for an Insta photo at L.A.’s Just One Eye.

Borbonese 1910 RTW Fall 2019

Guests mounted the red-carpeted stairs of the Teatro Manzoni, right in the heart of Milan’s fashion district, and entered another dimension. Neon lights and a lightbox runway showcased the first Borbonese 1910 collection, created by designers Dorian Tarantini and Matteo Mena for historic Italian brand Borbonese.
True to Borbonese chief executive officer Alessandro Pescara’s words, the limited-edition capsule collection was a joyful tribute to the Eighties and their icons. There were hints of Stephanie de Monaco in a boxy buttoned-up red dress, while a peroxide-blond model wearing a silk slipdress sewn on to a technical black top was a dead ringer for Brigitte Nielsen.
“It’s the Eighties, but in a fresh and digital way,” said Tarantini, who was also in charge of the mix of New Wave tracks pumping through the show. “We worked a lot on tailoring, because when you’re 16 or 17 years old, the first time you see a tailleur feels very new.”
Wool suits had square shoulders and curving arms, some of them sporting oversize front buttons on the jackets. The creative duo came up with a landscape print named Arcadia, in reference to the golden age of the Milan party scene, which appeared on long-sleeve tops, flowing silk dresses,

Fay RTW Fall 2019

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

Agnona RTW Fall 2019

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

2019 Oscars: Everything You Need to Know About This Year’s Academy Awards

The 91st annual Academy Awards has had its fair share of controversy.
Starting last August, the drama began when the Academy introduced new measures to increase viewership for the awards show. It announced that the telecast would be cut down to exactly three hours, meaning many of the awards would not be televised. Then the drama shifted over to the hosting gig, which the Academy briefly gave to comedian Kevin Hart, then quickly took away.
The drama hasn’t stopped there. There was also the brief introduction of a new award, called “Best Popular Film,” which was met with much criticism from the film industry and beyond, and the news that the Academy wasn’t letting all five “Best Original Song” nominees perform during the telecast.
From who’s hosting and performing to what can be expected during the live telecast, here’s everything you need to know about this year’s Academy Awards.
When and where?
The 91st annual Academy Awards are on Sunday, Feb. 24, at 8 p.m. EST. The ceremony will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and will be televised on ABC.
Who’s hosting?
No one. Briefly signing on to host the ceremony in December, comedian and actor Kevin Hart stepped down from the post after

Etro Fall 2019

Veronica Etro’s memories of being a coed at Central Saint Martins in London from 1993-97 came out to play for Fall 2019, which started at home with her family’s collection of antique 18th-century paisley shawls and ended with The Clash.
Coming off Etro’s 50th anniversary exhibition at MUDEC last fall, the designer’s thought was to take all that paisley-covered history and mess with it a bit. So there was a new venue for the runway show, the Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi, Italy’s largest music academy, where the colonnade seating offered an intimate vantage point for seeing the lush fabrics at the heart of the brand.
The collection flowed easily from aristocratic seat to Nineties street, from a dandy’s smoking robe over ruffled  paisley blouse and trim pants to bejeweled Chelsea boots with an edge. An ankle-sweeping paisley wool skirt, complete with gold tassel trim, could have been borrowed from that antique shawl archive — or the drawing room. “It’s all about how you mix things up and wear them, that’s life I guess,” said the designer backstage.
There was an air of the New Romantics in the crisp white men’s wear shirts (worn with brooches at the neck, natch) layered under baroque-looking minidresses, and

Genny RTW Fall 2019

Sara Cavazza Facchini was thinking of snow queens and silent, nighttime forests for this romantic collection of knits, puffers and crystal-embellished dresses in white, silver and ice blue. It wasn’t as overtly sexy as past seasons, and that was refreshing, with the clothes covering and protecting, rather than hugging curves and flashing the flesh.
“I wanted it to be cocooning, enveloping and fluid,” said Facchini, who sent out a lineup of snow white, gossamer knit dresses and tops, and paired with matching jackets with giant puffer sleeves, shearlings or capes. The palette extended to silvery gray, as in a long, billowy dress with crystals running down the front or one with a deep V-neck. It also turned icy blue in the form of a tailored coat layered over a matching, hooded sweater.
Even the most robust snow queen needs to keep warm now and then, so Facchini worked in some fiery reds with a feathery chubby, a V-neck silk gown with big puffer sleeves and a similar one with button cuffs and a rounded collar.
The designer tossed a panther print into the mix, too, which surfaced on a loose, tailored suit and a dreamy white gown, adding a “feline, savage” edge to the

Gilberto Calzolari RTW Fall 2019

Gilberto Calzolari reinforced his commitment to sustainability by employing recycled fabrics, plastic bottles and fishnets, to craft a colorful, eccentric lineup referencing both Japanese nature and the work of artists Piet Mondrian and Damien Hirst.
Floral motifs came in the form of maxi prints on black dresses punctuated by seductive see-through details, embroideries on palazzo pants and kimono-inspired jackets, as well as 3-D embellishments made of recycled plastic adorning coats and skirts with a high side slit.
Mondrian’s graphic artworks influenced both the checkered patterns splashed on breezy dresses and structured tops and the color palette juxtaposing primary tones to pops of pink, white and orange. At the same time, blue PVC skirts, long-sleeve blouses and belts with pockets referenced Hirst’s work.
The most notable looks blended all these elements, as seen on an ensemble where a checkered pink blouse was combined with chocolate floral flared pants with utility pockets and styled with a yellow bow belt decorated with PVC inserts.

Goat RTW Fall 2019

Jane Lewis took a bohemian turn, and put the focus on eveningwear, for this brand, which has been going from strength to strength internationally at specialty and department stores as well as on the Goat web site. Her collection included long paisley dresses, some with pussy bows and Lurex stripes, and other languid ones in black French tulle with ribbon at the neck. She described the latter as “sexy but covered.” So easy is this hippie luxe girl, who even the evening dresses have been designed to wear with flats or sneakers. Thinking practically, she also designed short capes in velvet or tweed with a snap at the front.
Daywear was more tailored, with standouts including a long tweed blue coat with a belt, a tailored peacoat and long, loose crepe dresses with hemlines that are meant to swish when they move and some neat velvet dresses with a little ruffle at the cuff and a lineup of pencil skirts and dresses, some with a sweetheart neckline.

Rejina Pyo RTW Fall 2019

Rejina Pyo said she was in the middle of doing up her house when she designed this collection, which was why she focused on structure. From sphere-shaped heels and geometric bags to big, boxy shoulders, Pyo took to construction skillfully.
“It made me think what clothing meant,” she mused. “I wanted to go back to that time where clothing was cherished and fixed by your granny.”
Pyo doesn’t have to worry about people throwing away her clothes. Once again, she demonstrated her intuitive of understanding of the modern woman: She’s multidimensional, feminine yet strong and classically cool, but also isn’t afraid to show that she’s not always put together — represented by large puffer jackets chucked haphazardly into large tote bags.
Silk pieces — A-line paneled dresses, floral-print skirts, tie-neck blouses and slouchy hoodies — contrasted with men’s inspired tailoring such as boxy blazers with a double hem. Trousers were either cropped and slightly flared or carrot-shaped.
“I wanted to bring the best of each era and what really empowered women and re-create that feeling of not caring what other people think about,” she said.
Among the best looks were a sleek brown leather jacket with a Peter Pan collar, a plaid pencil skirt with

Burberry RTW Fall 2019

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

London Label Vin and Omi Goes Even Greener for Fall 2019

NATURAL WOMAN: The zero-waste concept label Vin and Omi served up a green cocktail of a collection this seasonal. Dresses at the fashion show were made from organic nettle, cow parsley and linen fabric from the English Cotswolds, while olive green and mandarin latex fabrics were sourced from the brand’s plantation in Malaysia.
Chunky knitwear was fashioned from “combed-off” alpaca wool that had been donated from Vin and Omi’s friends, while Jodie Kidd returned to the runway after 10 years, opening the show in a floral-print dress.
Other garments were made from recycled plastic bottles while the fish-shaped bags came from old vinyl film posters, part of a long-term strategic partnership with the outdoor media owner Ocean Outdoor. Those vinyl pieces will eventually be developed into a retail line, with sales and profits to be donated to the Marine Conservation Trust.
Vin and Omi also got their green fingers on the models’ makeup: Decorative plasters on the models’ faces were made from bamboo fiber while metal foil flowers on the hats and jackets came from cans that had been collected by the homeless in Birmingham, England. The design duo also showed off a biodegradable perfume holder that was designed for Floral Street, the eco-friendly fragrance label that partnered

Halpern RTW Fall 2019

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

Phoebe English Shows Fall 2019 Collection in Exhibition Alongside 30 Marionettes

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

Matty Bovan RTW Fall 2019

Bovan was feeling England in his bones with this romp of a collection, which showcased swathes of Liberty fabrics, homemade crochet roses, nods to the 17th-century Pendle witch trials and to the grand Burton Agnes Hall, a stately home in the designer’s native Yorkshire. Bovan has been making big multicolored waves in London with his larger-than-life designs bolstered by crinolines, his wacky headwear and lots of draped, textured or cutout knits.
For fall, thick lasagna ruffles rippled over the shoulders of tailored jackets and peplum tops, while half-and-half shirts with billowing sleeves were made from a mix of paisley and swimming fish prints. Crinolines galore bounced joyfully under big skirts made from big sweeps of lavish fabrics that were ruffled, printed or satiny. Other dresses were covered in gigantic crochet flowers, leaves and organic shapes, while blankets and furs were cut and draped and ladled over skirts. Knits practically vibrated with surreal UFO, pig, flower, crest and horse intarsias.
“For me, it’s an ode to England,” said Bovan, who is based outside York, and who touted his use of local wool, his work with artisans, and collaborations with the likes of Liberty, Stephen Jones on hats and Katie Hillier on key rings, scrunchies and

Sartorial influences played a major role in the timeless, quotidian elegance of Brooks Brothers’ fall collection. Softly constructed blazers were worked in colorful checkered patterns or came embroidered with feminine floral motifs. Suits with front-pleated knee-length skirts were matched with floral blouses; impeccable belted coats were layered over cozy turtlenecks and cigarette jeans. Introducing a playful note, creative director Zac Posen printed a shirtdress with a wintery pattern of mini deer, while a cable-knit sweater was embellished with metallic details.
Getting into a festive, holiday mood, the collection veered toward more nocturnal notes with knits crafted from sparkling Lurex, draped velvet tops, feminine halter-neck frocks enriched with sparkling brooches and a covetable velvet tuxedo with a discreet tartan pattern in deep tones of blue, black and green.

Kuho RTW Fall 2019

In lieu of a presentation for fall, South Korea-based label Kuho opted for private appointments that allowed for closer examination of its contemporary priced, high-quality offering. They have big distribution in their native country and liken themselves to Vince, Joseph and Theory when it comes to design sensibility. You’ll find classic and clean styles like a fine double cashmere coat with clean lines next to elevated takes on the puffer jacket, as in a deep green version with removable knit dickey. The brand doesn’t target age, so you’ll just as easily see a glossy leather jacket draped loosely in the back styled with a cool matching poodle skirt.
On the importance of showing in New York, brand consultant Jean Colin said, “America is such a big market, a big contemporary market. The DNA of our brand fits well here — it’s practical, it’s nice, it’s classic with a little bit of a twist.”
Those little twists came through in subtle ways, namely with wardrobe essentials like a silk T-shirt with built-in necktie, or thin, knit, long-sleeve tops with large ribbed details or overlay construction. The interpretation of a grid theme ranged traditional, with cropped plaid sweaters and a matching tunic-scarf hybrid, to

Elvis Presley’s celebrated “68 Comeback Special” served as the main inspiration for Sally LaPointe. The designer said she wanted to convey her interpretation of “a chic, modern Elvis” with her collection, which combined men’s tailoring references with openly feminine and glamorous touches.
Sartorial qualities were injected into the leather separates and jumpsuits, as well as into the more fluid silk twill pants embellished with utility pockets paired with cozy knits crafted from wool, cashmere and alpaca blends, which exuded comfortable luxury.
Presley’s flamboyant look echoed in the eccentricity of snake leather pieces, including a midi skirt with a high slit and a suit with a belted, zippered jacket, all worked in a light purple tone. With their utterly glamorous appeal, a cascade of sequins covering striped blouses and pants brought an eye-catching sparkle to the catwalk.
Chic wool coats with tonal fur details and shearling outerwear styles warmed up the collection with timeless femininity.

Rebecca de Ravenel RTW Fall 2019

Coming off of a whirlwind, high-pressure spring season as a finalist in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, Rebecca de Ravenel decided to take a step back, reset and really focus on her woman. Instead of dreaming up a fanciful world, like last season’s outdoor garden party or fall 2018’s whimsical wonder-inspired gallery at the Carlyle Hotel, de Ravenel designed for what she wanted to see and wear.
“It’s about a woman standing on her own two feet,” she stated. Fall included cleaner, sophisticated offerings across more categories: suit sets (divine in 100 percent cashmere with a savvy houndstooth-print), coats that doubled as dresses with wide back pleats and waist belts and wonderful black-and-white wool jacquard tuxedo dresses.
De Ravenel still had her feminine twists, like pomegranate, paisley and floral-print day dresses with ties, open backs and easy, sweeping silhouettes that were inspired by jaunts to India, Hong Kong and Turkey. There were also magnificent updates to her jewelry line: The designer’s iconic Les Bonbons earrings were done in her signature wrapped cord and semiprecious stones — green amethyst, amethyst and citrine (to name a few) — which were offered in various lengths.

8 Highlights From the 2019 Grammy Awards

While the red carpet at the 61st annual Grammy Awards had its fair share of standout moments — Cardi B in a high-fashion Venus de Milo in a vintage 1995 Thierry Mugler shell-like gown and Janelle Monae in a sharp-shouldered Jean Paul Gaultier couture dress — the most memorable parts of the Grammys came during the telecast itself.
Absent from the ceremony, Ariana Grande still made headlines Sunday night despite not attending or performing at the Grammys. The singer, who just released her latest album, “Thank U, Next,” on Friday, went to her social media accounts to post pictures of herself in the custom Cinderella-esque Zac Posen gown she would have worn to the Grammys. Grande decided against attending the show because of disagreements she had with the producers over what songs she could perform during the ceremony.
From an appearance by former First Lady Michelle Obama and a Diana Ross celebration to a very Lady Gaga performance to Cardi B becoming the first solo woman to win Best Rap Album, here are the most memorable moments from the Grammy Awards.

Claudia Li RTW Fall 2019

“I want to break free,” Freddie Mercury sang. “Same here,” Claudia Li responded. Encouraged by the profusion of messages she got from women around the world following her spring show that featured an Asian-only cast, the designer said that for fall she felt able to really focus on what she likes.
In a nod to her years at fashion school, she experimented with weaving and braiding techniques that gave an artisanal touch to a double-breasted coat with maxi buttons and a range of separates crafted from metallic fabrics with an iridescent feel.   
Mount Cook lilies from New Zealand are another thing that Li loves. “I created bold, exaggerated prints of them, which, seen from a certain distance, look like abstract motifs,” she said, referring to the flamboyant patterns splashed on comfortable and breezy tunic dresses and separates.
And another of the designer’s fixations, Mongolian lamb shearling, was crafted not only for plush, oversize pillow bags, but also for the chubby, fluffy sleeves of knit sweaters. Their bold attitude was balanced by a range of clean, urban designs, such as a leather bomber jacket with drawstrings paired with a pleated skirt and a cotton shirt with a bow collar and a cute

NYFW: Designers’ Men’s Fall 2019 Inspirations

New York always offers a diverse group of designers, with aesthetics that range from classic men’s wear to streetwear, and even nonbinary. As the last round of the men’s fall runway season gets under way, brands offer a peek into their inspiration this season — everything from technical sport and the California desert rock scene from the Sixties to  uniforms for the modern-day cannabis ambassadors.
 
“Combining robust flannel, washed tweeds and vintage velvets — the contrasting textures, hues and patterns in the Joseph Abboud fall 2019 collection are as unique and diverse as the immigrants who helped found this country.” — Joseph Abboud
“This season, art — an integral strand of the Boss DNA — is our starting point. We take on the role of curator, traveling the world in search of creative ideas, and have stopped in New York. The gallery district in Chelsea has inspired the design, creation and curation of the new fall collection.” — Ingo Wilts, chief brand officer, Boss
“Dyne fall 2019 stays true to its technical sports-inspired roots, elevating the materials through texture and color and inspired by the beautiful outdoors of the Oregon Painted Hills. Tailoring is at its roots as always and fabrics have been sculpted

Adeam RTW Fall 2019

Proud of her Japanese origins, designer Hanako Maeda always looks at the rich cultural heritage of her native country to find inspiration for her collections.
For her fall lineup, she immersed herself in the stunning natural environment of Hokkaido, the northernmost of Japan’s islands. In particular, she celebrated Hokkaido’s indigenous Ainu population, who lives in harmony with Mother Nature. The collection’s vibrant tones of turmeric yellow, cacao brown, poppy red and fuchsia referenced the Ainu’s natural dyed garments, while the precious hand-finished details and embroideries punctuating many of the looks echoed the island’s artisanal traditions.
“In a world dominated by technology, I [wanted] to put the focus on both nature and craftsmanship,” said Maeda, who delivered another pretty collection offering a young, fresh and sophisticated vibe.
Workwear informed the functional details of a cool jacket and a wrap skirt decorated with multiple pockets, while dresses crafted from mannish suiting fabrics had charming bias cuts and hyper feminine ruffled trims. Eco leather introduced an urban, sleek feel, counterbalanced by the breezy lightness of an asymmetric white silk frock. Denim in a dark indigo tone got a luxurious treatment for a sculpted dress with dramatic, roomy sleeves, as well as a flared maxi skirt matched

Kate Spade New York RTW Fall 2019

“I was thinking about an insanely glamorous women’s closet, and the types of eclectic pieces you might find there,” Kate Spade New York creative director Nicola Glass said backstage during a preshow interview.
It’s that narrative that sees Glass evolving from her debut in spring, when she looked back to the brand’s roots. This season sees her pushing forward, looking at the collection through a lens of “soft and polished glamour.”
She dialed back some on the bright colors the brand is known for, preferring richer tones. A palette of cherrywood and spruce-tree green anchored her lineup, which featured looser silhouettes reminiscent of the late seventies. She did it with pointed collars on blouses, a color-blocked wrap dress and a flared pantsuit in jewel toned corduroy.
Glass did go bright with her animal prints. A polished coat in purple leopard print and a red shirtdress also in leopard explored the idea nicely. Other animal-print pieces had a hint of bright orange layered in to make them pop.
Every look was fully accessorized, including monochromatic tights with a bit of sparkle, turbans and colorful stone mood rings. It was there she gave a nod to the eclectic and girlie fun that is synonymous with the

PH5 RTW Fall 2019

“Everything starts from falling down the rabbit hole, so that’s why the hair is so big,” Mijia Zhang, half of PH5’s design duo, explained. Although the hairdos were disheveled, the clothes were anything but. Instead, models were scattered about, dancing or literally painting the white roses red, in polished, playful frocks inspired by “Alice in Wonderland.”
Knitwear, Zhang and Wei Lin’s bread and butter, made up a majority of the collection. There were updated wavy-hemmed and color-blocked skirts and dresses as well as suiting with “Wonderland”-esque colored stripes. 
“I think it’s easy for fashion brands to do something very flamboyant and runway looking, but we want to have something for everyday working people,” Zhang said. So the duo designed their new lightweight pleated polyester midi dresses and skirts with practicality in mind — wrinkle free and not body-conscious (as requested by their customers). One of the best came color-blocked in pastel tan and baby pink with long sleeves. Meanwhile a mohair-and-wool-blend knit puffer coat with a waterproof lining and a brown, chunky cardigan set made from a mix of “sustainable, cotton and Lurex yarns” made for other great new options from the brand.

Robert Geller Men’s Fall 2019

Robert Geller is taking us on a mountain-climbing expedition this fall.
After a three-season hiatus, the designer returned to New York Fashion Week: Men’s with a collection that took him into new territory. He applied his traditional romantic DNA to a performance-driven lineup spurred on by a new collaboration with Lululemon.

“Lulu pushed me in that direction,” he said. “But it’s also the spirit of the times and knowing the functionality of the garments.”

The use of bright neon greens and fuchsias in sweatshirts, pants and suits kept the athletic spirit at an all-time high. And a ubiquitous moon-pattern print that he used in coats, silky shirts, scarves and leggings was part of his fictitious mountainous climb to the moon.

A take on the slogan “I love you to the moon and back” was added to hooded sweatshirts and served as a reminder that Geller is still a romantic at heart.

While the Lululemon collaboration set the tone, Geller’s main collection concentrated around layered wool garments with some innovative dying techniques as seen in oversize wool coats, blazers and jackets all with nylon 3-D utility pockets.

The latest partnership with Common Projects resulted in a chic, high-tech hiking boot/sneaker that, paired with outdoor-inspired pants with articulated

Dyne Men’s Fall 2019

Christopher Bevans has always been a bit of a rule-breaker and the backstory surrounding his fall collection for Dyne was no exception.
After visiting the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange exhibit at the Fashion Institute of Technology last fall, he got an idea: Why couldn’t he show his fall line at the school where he had gotten his degree some two decades ago? So, after speaking to the board and the dean, he got the go-ahead to use a street-level space on Seventh Avenue and 27th Street during New York Fashion Week.
Bevans converted the space into an installation that showed his collection of athletically fused sportswear and signature high-tech fabrics juxtaposed against a cluster of old-time electronics — many of them broken and jumbled together into a pile.
The message he was making was one of sustainability, one of the issues he’s most passionate about. “We have to continue to champion and share our knowledge on how to work in a more sustainable way,” he said.
For Dyne, that translates into the use of vetted factories in Taipei and fabrics that can be repurposed. Bevans collaborated with Swarovski to create a sweatshirt in crystals that spelled out “Save Us” in several languages. “I’m trying to bring

Sundae School Men’s Fall 2019

Dae Lim is designing a smokewear line at an opportune time. Last season, medicinal marijuana wasn’t legal in South Korea, where he’s from — it is now — and the legalization of recreational weed wasn’t imminent in New York, where he currently lives. He likens this time, which he calls the Green Rush, to the Gold Rush, and used that to inform his collection.
Western references were the foundation of the line, but they were filtered through Lim’s viewpoint, which mixes workwear with traditional Korean garb and humorous graphics. That translated to pants updated with pleats, ceremonial knots and ankle wraps, tattoo turtlenecks covered in images of Chinese immigrants during the Gold Rush, and jackets with hanbok details. Outerwear included long down coats, while denim jackets were embellished with flames. The line was accented with tooled leather accessories meant to make a blunt or vape pen easily accessible.
Lim said his concept is resonating with retailers. He continues to be carried by Vfiles and was recently picked up by Barneys in New York and Los Angeles along with Intersect in Shanghai and Forty Five Ten in Dallas.
Lim has created a collection that celebrates weed without dumbing down craftsmanship. The focus is the

Each Other Pre-Fall 2019

Marking a clear departure from its usual punchy looks, Each Other decided to focus on one of its signature style traits for pre-fall: carving a sculptured feminine silhouette out of men’s wear pieces.
Inspired by the sensual architecture of John Lautner, the collection looked back to Seventies prints and shapes, which were reworked to show a bit more skin. A classic gray striped suit featured buttoned slits alongside trouser legs and sleeves, while an off-the-shoulder minidress, a standout piece among the looks, was sculpted out of two different printed suit jackets. Metallic suits with a pinched-in waist were ideal for eveningwear, as was an elegant trenchcoat with a luxurious velvet back.
The brand, which is celebrating its seventh birthday, has decided to exclude leather and fur from its collections, preferring the softest fake fur for teddy-like short coats and vegan bio-leather, made from apple waste, for a long belted jacket.
It also experimented with lithotherapy, collaborating with an expert in crystals to select semiprecious stones to use as buttons on suits and jackets. These were varnished to allow machine washing, and were an elegant addition to the more polished looks of the collection: a malachite button finished off a sleek satin suit jacket, and

Yeohlee RTW Fall 2019

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

Isabel Marant Pre-Fall 2019

For pre-fall, Isabel Marant offered a collection of strong silhouettes for the fashion-minded in want of ease —  toeing the label line. She emphasized shoulders, her signature, which felt especially prominent this season, offering them firmly, power-suit style, on a collarless boiler suit as well as a double-breasted plaid suit jacket. They were accentuated in layers — four pleats on each side — on a printed dress, and slowly gave way to wide, puffed out sleeves on a comfortable rendition of the burgundy boiler suit.
Standouts included a buttery, brown leather blouse and trouser set — slightly gathered at the shoulders, the top had slightly bulky sleeves and was paired with elegant, high-waisted trousers in the same material. A tan corduroy dress was handsome in a similar way, with puffy sleeves that were tightly cinched at the wrist in a nice balance of structure and flow. Elegant, monochrome looks, in both cases, which highlighted the stylishness of the cuts.
Outerwear included a fuzzy ivory wool coat and an ultra-light rain trench. The label continues its expansion, with a new store in Milan and plans for further locations in Brussels and Barcelona in the coming months.

Kobi Halperin RTW Fall 2019

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

Paula Canovas del Vas RTW Fall 2019

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

Isabel Marant Étoile RTW Fall 2019

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

Azzi & Osta Couture Spring 2019

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

Hyères Fashion Festival Toasts 2019 Finalists

PARIS — It smelt like spring at the French Culture Ministry on Wednesday night.
The entire reception room of the institution had been covered with fragrant sprigs of mimosa, the yellow-budded flower generally associated with the French Côte d’Azur, in honor of a cocktail celebrating the 34th edition of the International Festival of Fashion and Photography, set to take place from April 25 to 29 at the Villa Noailles in Hyères.
After an energetic performance by DJ Hervé and dance collective I Could Never Be a Dancer, Jean-Pierre Blanc and Pascale Mussard, respectively director and president of the Hyères Festival, officially unveiled the three jurys who will be judging the finalists of the 2019 edition of the competition.
As reported by WWD on Wednesday, Natacha Ramsay-Levi, creative director of Chloé, will preside over the fashion jury. Jewelry designer Charlotte Chesnais will head the jury for the festival’s accessories prize, sponsored by Swarovski and now in its third year. Meanwhile, Craig McDean will take the lead for photography.
The three jury presidents went on to unveil the 10 finalists in each category. “We made sure there was a real diversity of representation amongst the finalists,” said Ramsay-Levi, “both in terms of propositions and nationalities.”

Christian Wijnants Pre-Fall 2019

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

Aganovich Couture Spring 2019

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

Guo Pei Couture Spring 2019

Guo Pei took to the temple, allowing her imagination to roam a spiritual safe haven of palatial proportions. With elaborate craftsmanship as the driving force, the designer offered a wide-ranging futuristic and Gothic-infused lineup, part warrior princess, part illustrious queen.
An unusual experiment with waders came at the start of the show, covered in golden-hued dragons and hanging open at the thigh to reveal a pair of bright blue HotPants. On top, more skin, with tasseled shoulder armor leaving an exposed bellybutton.
The complexity of her pieces can be overwhelming, even if they’re sent down the runway at a snail’s pace affording time for a good look. Models were perched on towering platform shoes — architectural pieces, too, like the garments.
Show notes cited gold wiring techniques and padded, three-dimensional embroidery. In one example, a teeth-baring dragon jutted off a shoulder, hanging on to the arm with a claw, its feather-tufted body snaking down one leg of the model. It was a dress, with an open slit and one leg covered in a sequined, mesh skin — at once spectacular and handsome, prompting spontaneous applause from the audience.
Her dragons were everywhere, hailing from the Han dynasty, which had them slim and masterful at

MISBHV Men’s Fall 2019

The mass of people pressing against the entrance of the venue could only mean one thing: the invitation to the MISBHV show had been leaked. “There are 3,000 people waiting to see you, so give them a show they will remember,” said designer Natalia Maczek during a pep talk given to the models backstage, in what seemed like barely an exaggeration.
In an underground car park in the seediest part of the 18th arrondissement, guests were packed into a show venue defying all security rules (as well as the “no smoking” signs). WWD was told that an interview post-show would prove difficult, as the venue was going to be transformed into a rave party. Models got changed in the parking lot’s toilets. The air was charged with the smell of dope, spray-on deodorant and pre-show nerves.
The collection seemed to meet the crowd’s anticipation. Cheers greeted the casting, a blend of models scouted in the brand’s native Poland – “We wanted to support our country and show these faces to the world,” said Maczek, who designs alongside creative director Thomas Wirski – and international talent, with a focus on blurring gender codes. Richie, a photographer from New York, wore a prairie-style, high-waisted skirt

Armani Privé Couture Spring 2019

Invitations for Giorgio Armani’s Privé haute couture show arrived with a satin pouch containing three vials of his new fragrance, Laque — a teaser for a collection that paid homage to Asia as seen through an Art Deco prism.
Having traded the cavernous Palais de Chaillot for more intimate venues, the designer took over a succession of salons in the Hôtel d’Evreux for his leisurely display, which drew A-listers including Uma Thurman, Céline Dion, Juliette Binoche, Dakota Fanning and Amber Heard.
In line with the Jazz Age theme, models wore snug flapper caps dripping with beaded fringe, or miniature conical hats with stiff veils. The show kicked off with a pair of shiny metallic gray trouser suits with graphic Art Deco motifs, establishing the season’s ruler-straight shoulder line.
That power shoulder was a recurring motif, appearing on a zigzag-patterned pink and gray jacket, as well as on evening looks such as a fiery red sequined dress topped with a matching buttonless crocodile coat that had an almost liquid sheen.
Indeed, the collection was awash in scarlet, a color not normally associated with the king of greige, but one that tied in neatly with the lacquer theme, not to mention bringing good luck in Chinese

Schiaparelli Couture Spring 2019

When Elsa Schiaparelli was a little girl, her uncle Giovanni, a renowned astronomer, compared the beauty marks on her cheek to the stars forming Ursa Major. Years later, she commissioned a brooch in the shape of the constellation, which became a personal talisman.
That anecdote from her autobiography “Shocking Life” was one of the childhood memories that inspired creative director Bertrand Guyon’s spring haute couture collection, which explored the founder’s obsession with astrological signs and flowers through the prism of her lesser-known work in the Fifties.
Frothy tulle confections and colorful botanical prints contrasted with sequin-sprinkled gowns inspired by the sky at night, carrying evocative names such as Luna Orbiter, Zeta Draconis and Via Lactea. The latter, a ruffle dress in inky tulle, was embroidered with a sparkling milky way.
A master of the embellished jacket, Guyon introduced radical new shapes such as hourglass-shaped peplum jackets that came with matching bell-shaped skirts or shorts. He borrowed lush embroideries from antique porcelain motifs, and culled an astrological pattern from a 17th-century star atlas.
Guyon admitted that he wasn’t much of an astronomy buff himself, and doesn’t even read his horoscope. “It’s not something I’m naturally drawn toward, but it’s part of the DNA of the

Christian Dada Men’s Fall 2019

Masanori Morikawa created a strong collection charged with urban sartorial pieces and less of a nod to Eastern influences than in seasons past.
The show notes explained that the line, called Signal Noise, was influenced by a 1994 art happening, entitled “S/N” by Dumb Type, conceived by a Japanese artist collective that — through the piece — questioned discrimination and imagined a time devoid of borders and stereotypes. The performance’s aesthetic and political elements particularly inspired Morikawa for fall.
There was a coherence to this collection full of streamlined silhouettes for men and women, like the cinched black suit and jacket, brown velour trousers and bomber, and multicolored striped sweater over black velour pants.
This lineup was full of varied details, such as splayed cuffs, tape seams and winged motifs, and fabrics like a coated material appearing shiny; wool; leather, and cotton. Colors varied, too, from black and navy to mauve and teal.
What could have been clashing — the look, say, with a white turtleneck, multicolored, collage-like shirt, glossy gray trousers and long, zip-up gloves — coalesced.

Jet Set Men’s Fall 2019

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

Boris Bidjan Saberi Men’s Fall 2019

Boris Bidjan Saberi relayed Mongolian and Persian influences for fall, adding flavor to his precise, military-inspired designs. The silk road was awash with primary materials like copper and silver, he noted backstage following the show, and he decided to train his sights on the oxidation process.
Strips of copper decorated the faces of the models — “soldier makeup” in the designer’s words, with patches of aquamarine blue added to complete the closing number: a tailored jacket and shorts ensemble, in this bright blue, with a furry yak vest, in a silvery hue, strapped on top. High-top boots, also dyed in the prerequisite hue, completed the look, while sturdy straps reined in the silhouette, adding to the utilitarian feel. “My technical roots come from military garments — this is a driving force of the collection,” he said. The military bent was certainly back in full force this season.
The dyeing process — color! — was another underlying theme, as the lineup gradually shifted from grays and silvers to include pale blues before leading to an emphatic aquamarine.
The carefully considered choice of materials — yak wasn’t the only leather; there was also horse and kangaroo — and the accessories — small purses attached to

Dries Van Noten Men’s Fall 2019

Add Dries Van Noten to the ranks of designers dialing back the sportswear this season. The show notes for his fall collection promised “a view on tailoring for the next generation” and “a step back from nonchalance and sportswear.”
It opened with a sequence of sartorial staples: a white shirt and tie, a pin-striped suit and a charcoal wool coat. Van Noten soon introduced a note of visual disruption, in the shape of tie-dye patterns that bloomed across sweaters, jeans and suits.
They were most striking in psychedelic bursts on silky reversible raincoats. Seemingly random, the patterns were in fact engineered to be “hyper optic and exactingly symmetric.” Together with a graphic carpet motif, they added a dash of Sixties bohemia to a display otherwise focused on subtle ways for a man to draw attention.
Those included a striking new suit shape, which paired a short jacket, with crisp shoulders and a high and narrow waist, with wide pleated pants. Also intriguing: the asymmetric quilted jackets that wrapped around the body like down comforters, and wool blankets that were wrapped around the waist like skirts.
The takeaway message: Being smart doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. Underlying it all was a suggestion that men need

Off-White Men’s Fall 2019

As he gears up for the first museum exhibition of his work, Virgil Abloh has been delving into his childhood obsessions. His fall men’s show was titled “Public Television,” an exploration of his favorite shows growing up, from American children’s TV series “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” to sports broadcasts.
But this was no warm, fuzzy trip down memory lane. Abloh, a moving target if ever there was one, doesn’t do nostalgia — even as he prepares for the show of his career highlights so far at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, opening in June.
“I don’t look back. I’ve never been one to stop and think. I’m always going forward. I think that’s why getting this exhibit together had me for the first time even caring to look at old things. I’m less into things, but more into why we as humans in art or fashion, or outside of that, respond to things and what makes our taste,” he said.
Growing up in Rockford, Ill., his aesthetic was shaped by watching everything from basketball legend Michael Jordan to businesspeople — hence the wide range of references spilling onto the runway. Oversize suit jackets were paired with voluminous jeans, as if a Nineties

Galvan Pre-Fall 2019

Galvan’s German-based Atelier proved inspiration for the brand’s latest array of playful glamour. Berlin, specifically in the late Seventies, when David Bowie’s move to the city influenced its youth culture and nightlife set the backdrop.
“What was interesting, particularly, when he was there was this surge, almost, of freedom and rebellion in the midst of all of the downy, slightly depressing atmosphere that happened under the shadow of the wall,” Galvan’s Katherine Holmgren explained. “It was all about electrifying nightlife…the fantasy world that a lot of the youth created to escape their everyday.”
The Bowie centric-film “Christiane F.” inspired a satin bomber, while his iconic outfits inspired a fringed and sequined jacket paired with flared, pleated trousers. There were touches of slightly unconventional, slightly over-the-top glamour that melded nicely with the brand’s DNA of cleaner, pared down silhouettes. There were discotheque, glam-rock inspired dresses — sequined in green, with beaded fringe in blue, liquid like in rose-gold — that held the brand’s sought-after effortless feel. Sharp tailoring and separates rounded out the expanded collection — an all-white suit or beaded black bodysuit — with the right amount of modern glamour you could see on any one of the brand’s quickly growing
