Jenny Fax RTW Fall 2019

Name: Jenny Fax
Main message: Taiwanese designer Shueh Jen-Fang takes fragments of childhood memories and turns them into avant-garde collections. For her latest offering she put her stamp on an innocent picnic, with sweet, pastel lace dresses paired with candy-striped blouses. True to form, nothing was quite as it seemed, with acid-washed denim skorts that were so low-waisted they put on display the granny panties attached underneath. Plush balloon dresses had boning to create voluminous, sculptural shapes, while tweed tops were shrunken into tiny, frill-adorned bandeaus. The show closed with a vinyl puffer coat with a hood that zipped all the way up to create a cartoon-like character, and a white split cape that billowed behind like a pair of angel wings.
The result: The collection struck just the right chord between the bizarre and charmingly unique, a weirdly fun take on a fairy-tale-like dreamscape.

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

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.

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.

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.

Y’s RTW Fall 2019

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.

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.

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,” said the designer 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 coat dress worn over trousers: “It’s a flower print, but I tried to make it look destroyed, like it’s been crashed or hammered,” said Onose.
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 grey, 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

Alexander McQueen RTW Fall 2019

Celtic warrior goddesses, you’re off duty for a while. For fall, Sarah Burton sought more real inspiration. It started with a homecoming in the north of England, where she visited old mill towns, some with still-operational mills that supply the classic, refined men’s wear fabrics she has long used at Alexander McQueen.
“We thought of the industrial revolution but also the memories I have as a child,” Burton said backstage, noting that her father had one cherished pinstriped suit. “We thought of the skill that goes into making these fabrics. It’s man and machine working together,” she offered, noting that much of the work remains by-hand, including the threading of needle-like instruments called heddles. “I love nature [inspirations], but nature is very much escapism,” she said. “I wanted this to be very much grounded in reality. I wanted it to be [about] where I’m from and where we belong in the world and where we feel at home. There’s an honesty about these mills.”
It all provided a framework for Burton’s focus on tailoring in an exquisite collection that pulsed with artful tension while retaining an underlying commercial savvy, without a trace of bourgeois rumination. Burton started from her beloved baseline of

Sacai RTW Fall 2019

An oversized trench coat restrained by a teeny-tiny cropped puffer vest, all as one piece, epitomized what Chitose Abe was trying to do with her fall Sacai collection: bring new proportion play to her signature hybrid pieces. “Putting something really small on top of something big,” she said backstage, recalling how as a young woman, she used to wear a child’s size Ralph Lauren button-down oxford shirt over a voluminous vintage dress. “That’s something I tried to do in one piece.”
She succeeded, and found the perfect balance of large and small in almost every look. Consider the black anorak, cinched at the waist, fanning out in cartridge pleats over the hips, balanced with a straight skirt zipped down the back. Or a denim jacket, trimmed in fur, that flared into a nylon puffer at the bottom. Working the male-female balance, an oversized tweed overcoat came with a nylon corset built in. It was outerwear stylish enough to keep on indoors.
Sacai’s knits are always another high point, and this season didn’t disappoint. Both an oversized black crewneck sweater, and a long green Nordic sweater dress, had multiple zippers down one side for the wearer to reveal or conceal as much as

Tommy x Zendaya Spring 2019

When the original Battle of Versailles happened in 1973, an African-American hadn’t yet made it onto the cover of American Vogue (that would be Beverly Johnson in 1974), much less into the creative director role at a European luxury house like Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton Men’s. Fashion’s record of inclusion is still far from perfect, but on Saturday night in Paris, Tommy Hilfiger and multihyphenate Zendaya reminded everyone of America’s role in the change with their celebration of diverse beauty featuring models of color in all sizes to launch the first Tommy x Zendaya collection in stores now.
Roller disco dancers on an illuminated runway warmed up the crowd of over 1,000 guests at the Art Deco-style Théâtre des Champs-Élysées on Avenue Montaigne, including previous Hilfiger collaborator Gigi Hadid, Janelle Monáe, Yara Shahidi and Luka Sabbat.
It turns out roller discos aren’t unfamiliar territory for five-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton, whose second collection for Hilfiger drops in a couple of weeks.
“My dad use to go to roller discos in the Eighties,” he told WWD. “So when I was younger, I used to borrow his skates and go to a couple of places in Stevenage, where I grew up in Britain.”

Haider Ackermann Fall 2019

If you weren’t already convinced Haider Ackermann is one of the sexiest designers in Paris, you would be after hearing his NSFW heart-thumping, rapturous-moaning show soundtrack. Wowza.
It set the tone for the designer’s latest exploration of gender and sexuality. Nothing unisex here (that’s still somewhat of a dirty word in fashion), “it was all about borrowing clothes from your loved one,” he said backstage. The morning after, perhaps? And indeed, you couldn’t tell what was for women and what was for men, or even who was whom model-wise underneath the androgynous slicked back hair that created its own kind of new, non-binary normal on the runway.
As usual, the focus was sculptural tailoring, but not in the long liquid style or moody color palette laced with exoticism of seasons past. Instead, Ackermann wanted to “restrict it to something graphic to really challenge myself,” he said by way of explaining the black, white and red of the collection, including a long, duster coat reminiscent of a color field painting.
Throughout, there was a dialogue between structure and ease; a fitted jacket with concealed buttons, fabric twisted into something reminiscent of a shoulder embrace, for example. The style came in a variety of fabrications,

Balmain RTW Fall 2019

For fall, Olivier Rousteing may have been inspired by troublemakers, but it was a gateway to one of the more conventionally wearable collections he’s shown to date. That was a good thing.
The brand that has made jackets with linebacker shoulders its stock and trade went light on the look, and in a season when it’s turned up everywhere from Yves Saint Laurent to Dries Van Noten, too. Instead, Rousteing leaned more on romance, channeling his rock ‘n roll spirit (and a few winks to Rue Cambon) through Easter egg pastel hues, pleated miniskirts resembling armor, looser tailoring and lighter fabrications (in the best exits), for a vibe that was “sweet poison” as he called it.
Coming off showing his first couture collection for the house in January, Rousteing said he is thinking differently about ready-to-wear. “She’s younger,” he said of his woman this season, and the clothing is “more relaxed.” Exhibit A: the opener, a tweedy black drop-shoulder jacket with wide satin lapels that had the ease of a cardigan, and matching short skirt with feathery trim. Never mind that the allover studding could pose a problem when sitting: The look had charm, especially when worn with a studded headband and

Dawei RTW Fall 2019

If Dawei Sun was nervous ahead of the first runway show of his namesake label, he didn’t let on.
Describing his mood backstage, amid the flurry of last-minute primping, his words were, “happy, relaxed, calm, breathing — not feeling the stress.” Delivered in an unhurried, business-like manner, it was time — a message also conveyed through the sophisticated tailoring of the lineup that followed.
The bow was a source of some concern. “I’m stressed about heading out,” to address the audience, he noted.
Preceding his own, brief appearance on the catwalk, the collection proved to be a confident display of complex design techniques. Sun draws on the A-line shape, which he tries to offset by introducing masculine elements, constructing and deconstructing silhouettes, adding layers and folds along the way. One of the more elaborate looks, made from a crinkly, ultra light fabric, had a series of pleated folds — six of them — running across the front, from a shoulder down to the waist, before splitting open. Other outfits were built to look as if a coat had been tossed off the shoulders, left hanging unfolded across the back to reveal a logo tag. Fabrics ranged from thick, luxury wool twills to breezier

Faith Connexion RTW Fall 2019

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

Ottolinger RTW Fall 2019

Christa Bösch and Cosima Gadient doubled down on draping techniques to remake familiar pieces, yielding a sci-fi-infused lineup that was vigorous and sexy. Their game is one of subversion and the pair is known for sending traditional Swiss, mountain references like edelweiss flower patterns and laced bodices off on a psychedelic jaunt.
No flowers this season—fall is about knits—and a series of chunky weaves kicked off the show, setting a grungy tone: short skirts and tops in lime green, orange and black, with a bulging, oversized sleeves and strappy skin-baring shoulders. Exuberant patches of frayed tufts ran up and down some pieces. Chanel-flavored tweed sets were not an homage to Karl Lagerfeld—they had been designed well in advance of his passing—but with the late designer on everyone’s minds, the question came up backstage.
The pair works on the premise that beauty comes from the unexpected. “It’s always about treatment, more than destruction, maybe,” offered Gadient.
A tangle with high performance ski jackets — in technical fabrics — turned up some of the sexiest pieces, tucked closely at the waist, while added zippers highlighted body curves. A profusion of bared midriffs and thigh-high leggings brought further sensuality, offering flashes of skin among the piles

Angel Chen RTW Fall 2019

Ominous tribal music played at Chinese designer Angel Chen’s fall 2019 coed collection, presented in Milan after a one-season stint in New York. The designer took inspiration from an ancient tribe called the Qiang people, a group of nomadic shepherds based in the Sichuan region.
Chen’s bright palette of orange, red and zingy yellow was taken from the Qiang’s ceremonial headdresses. The brand experimented with wool for the first time, including a six-color jacquard jacket that was dyed using Anofix, an environmentally friendly dye. Some of the looks were head-to-toe wool — trailing scarves and shorts masking as skirts on men, long fuzzy coats and macramé-like shawls on women — and will be presented as part of the 2019 edition of the International Woolmark Prize.
Lace embroideries were done using a laser technique and some silhouettes were crafted in recycled polyester, made from discarded plastic bottles. Puffa jackets had huge, quilt-like sleeves, while dark wash denim was paired with madras-printed pieces. Watches dangled from around necks, created in collaboration with FOB Paris, alongside feather trinkets and ribbons.
A true standout piece was the mountain boot with a rubber teeth-shaped sole bulging from underneath. “It’s a funny story — a friend of mine lost

Bally RTW Fall 2019

It was Bally on the tracks this season: Models posed in elegant Alpine train cars designed by Patrick Kinmonth and Antonio Monfreda, while guests swilled tea and cocktails and made their way down the imagined corridors to have a look inside.
These cars, with their bright blue velvet seats and fabulous luggage on the racks — plus shearling backpacks and pouches, high-performance hiking boots with vintage laces, and logo sweaters — could certainly challenge the Orient Express. Kinmonth and Monfreda even filled their windows with videos of snowy mountains whipping past, on the way to ski heaven.
“We own the mountains, and wanted to go back to our roots, show the uniqueness of Switzerland, and the craftsmanship of the brand,” said Frédéric de Narp, Bally’s chief executive officer. He added that the company is gearing to open its first China flagship, in Beijing, in April, while in July, it will cut the ribbon on its Milan flagship on the corner of Via Montenapoleone and Via Manzoni. The three-floor space will span 6,000 square feet.

Cultivating a strong identity is job number one in order to succeed in today’s crowded fashion market. Fausto Puglisi definitely knows what he loves and what he wants for his fashion house and has settled on maximalist flamboyance. His unapologetic devotion to it was at the core of his fall collection, which was a fun, appealing distillation of the designer’s obsessions, including hyper-feminine sensuality, Greek and Roman references and Baroque eccentricity.
Oversize bows, which made their debut with pre-fall, remained a focal point. They gave a glam and ironic feel to short, linear dresses and miniskirts crafted from a range of precious materials, including pink duchesse silk, leather, velvet combined with vinyl, and cotton. Inspired by a silky Ottoman carpet that Puglisi found at Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar, he reworked the pattern and rendered it in a red and blue version on mini and maxidresses with generous sleeves and belt details putting the focus on the waist. Embellishments inspired by antique coins, striking colorblocking and mannish sartorial patterns defined his cashmere coats and enhanced the bold attitude of the collection.

Fabiana Filippi RTW Fall 2019

Fabiana Filippi explored textures and colors for fall. Focusing on extensive fabric research, the brand juxtaposed materials with different finishings. Jacquards with abstract graphic patterns gave a rich, 3-D effect to coats worn with oversize knitwear and leather pants for a cool, urban attitude; sweaters showing asymmetric argyle motifs had a furry look, while a pink velvet puffer worn over a matching suit revealed iridescent reflections.
Expanding its proposal for special occasions, Fabiana Filippi presented dresses and skirts covered with a cascade of fringes, a frock worn with a tuxedo jacket combined organza and sequins and a knit top punctuated by crystals was paired with a feminine see-through maxi skirt.
The best results came when the brand embraced its original casual-chic attitude, demonstrated, for example, with a hooded shearling coat matched with a wrap top and comfortable pants, all worked in a warm caramel tone.

Carlotta Canepa RTW Fall 2019

Carlotta Canepa is not one to shy away from prints but for fall she employed subtle necktie patterns in somber tones.
They were splashed on everything from silk shirts to a pair of cropped, wide-leg trousers featuring a macro medallion-shaped motif. The latter were paired with a striped shirt and floral vest in the same purple and dark fuchsia hues.
The designer, who launched her namesake label three years ago, drew inspiration from prints and fabrics she found in the archives of her family’s textile company, with geometric and paisley motifs taking center stage.
A couple of cozy, belted coats crafted from jacquard fil coupé featured a pattern inspired by Arctic populations’ traditional clothes. The same design peppered a floor-length shirtdress.
Although at times she went too far by piling up different patterns and prints, the collection was still accessible and wearable.

Au Jour Le Jour RTW Fall 2019

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

Emilia Wickstead RTW Fall 2019

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

Osman RTW Fall 2019

Osman Yousefzada reveled in his flair for magpie dressing and told a tale of dark romance in his fall collection, paraded at his brand’s new London townhouse.
He layered fabrics, textures – and cultural references – to create a real visual feast: Skin-tight undergarments featured blown-up tattoo patterns peeked out from under draped organza gowns and tulle dresses; ruffle-trimmed leather jackets were worn with dramatic floral-embroidered veils; while sleek tailored looks were accessorized with ruffs.
Yousefzada amped up the drama of his evening wear. Consider a fuchsia feather-embellished gown, lamé shirt dresses or a black top featuring voluminous sequin frills.
The idea was to play with both soft and tougher fabrics and it created an interesting tension throughout the range. It was best captured in a woven black coat whose sharp, tailored structure was offset with cascading layers of tulle.
Yousefzada also made it a priority to experiment with new techniques and fabrications, including a series of vegan leather dresses and a checked coat, where suede and black vinyl squares were incorporated into a light, seamless fabric.
It was a compact collection that highlighted the designer’s sharpened focus on one-of-a-kind, crafty pieces.

Victoria Beckham RTW Fall 2019

Victoria Beckham staged the show at one of her favorite London places, Tate Britain, and its soaring ceilings and studious air made a fitting backdrop for the designer’s fall collection, which had a bookish, Seventies feel to it. The designer took her bow in a trouser-and-sweater combo, layered over a white shirt with a long, pointy collar and cuffs.
Beckham’s gal took to the runway in checked pencil skirts or flared trousers, some paired with fuzzy argyle knits or cropped ones in Easter egg tones of turquoise, purple and lilac. Many of them were layered over white blouses with those snazzy Seventies collars. There was a rich lineup of dresses, too, which Beckham said is the core of the business.
They came with fuzzy sweater tops and woven skirts, or in breezy chain-printed silk with a gently gathered waist, while nubby knit ones hugged all the right curves. Coats made a strong statement, too: bright red with high slashes at the back or a camel number that could transform into a cape. A standout check wool one had a delicate dusting of sequins at the hem.

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

Kiko Kostadinov RTW Fall 2019

Australian twins Laura and Deanna Fanning, Kiko Kostadinov’s women’s wear designers, do a lot of research and it was while paging through the “portraits” section of their compendium that they rediscovered sepia photographs of 19th Century Central American “bandidas” and “pistoleras”, in other words, highwaymen of the female persuasion.
They fused those frontier references with nods to 1988 fantasy sci-fi film “On The Silver Globe”, a Polish movie ostensibly about cosmic exploration and primitive cultures, resulting in a pleasing mix of shirting stripes and velvet with metallic knits, performance fabrics and retro-futuristic details.
The silhouettes drew upon Victorian elements like leg of mutton sleeves and elbow-length cuffs, the latter translated into separate gauntlet-like pieces worn on one arm. “We were struck by the toughness of the female outlaws but also the femininity in the clothes they wore,” Deanna Fanning, Kostadinov’s girlfriend, told WWD. “There was all this draping and gathering.”
Those details could be seen at the full gathers of exaggerated sleeves, in the ruches of panels and in the cuffed ankles of trousers, and looked great in the duck egg blue trouser suit, with red tuxedo stripe, and jacket with black waist panels that mimicked panniers. And tall lace-up boots, via a

Creatures of the Wind RTW Fall 2019

In 2017, Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters, designers of Creatures of the Wind, decided to shift their business to a project-driven, rather than season-driven, model. Like many designers trying to figure out how to survive the shifting industry tides, they did some soul-searching, which could well be fall 2019 New York Fashion Week’s biggest trend. It brought them to Tuesday night, when they presented their first runway collection in a year at the Pratt Institute campus in Brooklyn, where Gabier is a visiting professor in the fashion department.
Instead of a soundtrack, they tapped trend forecaster Faith Popcorn to deliver a short lecture about the realities that got them to this point — the planet in peril, the new gender-fluidity norm, buying based on social values — as models paraded around the school auditorium in upcycled looks made of vintage or deadstock.
“There are so many parts of the process of making and selling clothes that we’ve never totally been comfortable with,” Gabier said before the show, recalling a moment when the designers looked at an endless rack of black pants at their distribution warehouse that made them feel “sick to their stomachs.” “That…didn’t feel like luxury,” Peters added. “We felt like

Marc Jacobs RTW Fall 2019

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

Batsheva RTW Fall 2019

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

The Row RTW Fall 2019

Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen have become a bit like the Greta Garbos of the New York fashion world, preferring to stay in the background, refusing to give pre- or post-show interviews, or offer up much intel on collection inspirations, materials or much of anything else. But you know what, it works for them, and is on-brand for a pair of child stars-turned-fashion designers who now value anonymity as the ultimate luxury.
Over the last 13 years — yes, it’s really been that long — The Row has established itself as the gold standard in New York for timeless tailoring (the new Calvin, perhaps) and loose, luxe layers using the kind of materials (900 gram cashmere) that would stack up to any European luxury brand any day. And each season, the designers still manage to generate some measure of newness within their classic canon.
For fall 2019, there was a new waist-defining silhouette along with their signature cloaking volumes. Consider the first look, a generously cut blazer over a diaphanous ivory funnel neck dress, worn with the most expensive looking black rubber boots this side of Glastonbury. Deceptively simple, it was superbly executed, with a cowl neck that read as delicate-but-protecting.

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

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

Prabal Gurung Fall 2019

“I’m calling this collection ‘Suitcases of the World,’” Prabal Gurung said backstage Sunday night before his fall show. He should know — the Nepalese-American designer spent almost as much time on the road last year as he did at home in New York.
He was in Kathmandu, India, China and points beyond, and all that globetrotting inspired his latest vision of a glamorous nomad through an immigrant’s lens, because, as he said with characteristic political directness, “We are more alike than we are different.”
The effort resulted in a multi-culti collage of colors and styles, anchored in sporty standards like quilted duvet coats, bombers, safari jackets and cargo pants. Onto that he added hippie trail artisanal touches like tie-dye, hand-loomed Varanasi brocades and hand-painted Taj Mahal landscapes, as well as layering in the ladylike sophistication of Seventies-era Bill Blass, Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Lacroix, fashion heroes that surely enthralled a dreamer growing up on the other side of the world.
Gurung is one of New York’s best colorists; case in point, a pink-and-red silk crepe blouse framed in cascading ruffles, tucked into turquoise high-waisted pleat-front trousers. The pattern play was great, too; this season’s version of his signature draped dress with buttoned waist

Christian Siriano RTW Fall 2019

It was a moon shot to have a show with the kind of star power and fandom Christian Siriano draws at the Top of the Rock, on the 64th floor of 30 Rock in Rockefeller Center. From the get-go, it was obvious the door staff was in over their heads. Lines were long, elevators slow, tempers flaring. It took nearly an hour for guests to ride upstairs, get seated, and in the case of the famous front row, be interviewed by “Extra” and every other celebrity outlet. Poor Jonathan Simkhai, who had the next show on the schedule, must have been tapping his foot down at Industria Studios thinking he had the day wrong.
Siriano, who dressed a record 17 people for the 2018 Oscars and “Vanity Fair” party, is a very good red-carpet designer, someone who has created a new paradigm for inclusive celebrity dressing, and figured out how to dress lots of shapes and sizes to look good on camera. And everyone in his starry front row on Saturday looked outstanding, including Mariska Hargitay wearing a celestial-patterned black velvet pantsuit, and Christina Hendricks in a black sleeveless tuxedo bustier and cigarette pants.

Graham Tyler RTW Fall 2019

Young designer Graham Tyler wears many hats. In the literal sense, he brings to the table a background in millinery, but that is just the beginning. His avant-garde sensibility also stems from a meditation on his studies of sculpture and his visceral sense of memory.
“It’s about losing a home, and how to give yourself that home back in the things you wear,” he said. He was also thinking about his grandmother, who had recently passed away, and about the town in upstate New York where both his parents and grandparents had grown up. Another reference he mentioned was his early fascination with the Amish.
All that might sound super heady, but Tyler distilled it into a straightforward collection of classic shapes that he imbued with his sense of textiles and whimsy to make an interesting second collection.
Highlights include digitally printed knits, structured blazers and an Italian half-boiled wool oversized quilt jacket lined in hand-painted muslin. He integrated his hat-making training by shaping and steaming a grosgrain ribbon, normally used as a trim on hats, to make collars and treatments on an vintage-looking black dress.
Each piece has some sort of novelty, be it poetry on buttons, or coordinates of the town he

Badgley Mischka RTW Fall 2019

During a backstage interview before the show, Mark Badgley and James Mischka cited post-war American glamour and the colors of Fifties’ Mercedes car bodies as the main inspirations behind their fall collection.
What really captured the attention, though, was the designers’ shift toward more streamlined and sharp silhouettes for an elegance injected with sartorial appeal. Long dresses, including styles with plunging V-necks, enriched with jewelry-like details or a cascade of sparkling sequins, came laser cut for a precise look, while an off-the-shoulder draped gown with generous sleeves and embroidered cuffs was crafted from a comfortable jersey fabric.
While their signature frocks — offered in an array of silhouettes and materials, including a minimal black design revealing a delicate sequined bow on the back — as always took center stage in the collection, the lineup also included elegant evening suits, such as the opening sequined style featuring a softly constructed tailored blazer cinched at the waist with a coordinated belt.
The runway show cheerfully closed with a parade of red dresses, spanning from beaded and fringed designs to ones covered with feathers. Some might say “predictable,” but who doesn’t love a charming red dress to make a bold entrance into the holiday

Greta Constantine RTW Fall 2019

Going into the fall season, Greta Constantine designers Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong landed on three central ideas: modesty, volume and carbon footprint. During a recent trip to Dubai, the designers were “mesmerized how these [Emirate] women were made up and wearing their burkas — their clothing, just the way they are — they weren’t even trying to be modest. It was just their lifestyle and we thought, ‘We don’t have to show too much skin to be sexy,’” Pickersgill reminisced. “That trip did leave lasting impressions,” Wong added.
While past seasons included slinky, leggy silhouettes, the duo played with proportions and layering for fall. Great long-sleeve sequined bodysuits and turtlenecks were layered under, well, everything. With gray boiled wool separates or dresses, the looks fell flat, but when piled under varying voluminous silhouettes — a high-neck tulle jacket, liquid Lurex dresses with sizable poet’s sleeves or brocade puffed-outerwear — the concept soared. The strongest look included a silver lame floor-length gown with puffed shoulders atop an all black long-sleeve sequined turtleneck. “Completely covered up but out there, still the center of attention,” Wong expressed.
Dipping their toes into reducing their carbon footprint, the duo decided to dig into their archives,

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

Markarian RTW Fall 2019

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

Todd Snyder Men’s Fall 2019

Todd Snyder transported guests to his basement, circa 1970 — think green carpeting and wood paneling — for his fall runway show.
The first look — a chocolate brown corduroy parka over a black-and-white checkerboard sweater with high-waisted pegged officer’s pants — set the perfect Seventies tone. Other Seventies throwbacks included a cognac-colored leather topcoat with a newsboy cap and a large assortment of shaggy dog sweaters.
“It’s all about irreverent prep and mixing East End boys with a bit of a street edge,” Snyder said backstage before the show.
His use of haberdashery-style shirts that looked more like thrift store finds, and a reconstructed Iowa State hoodie — the designer’s alma mater — paired with tight velvet sweatpants drove the point home.
The true highlights of the show were the outerwear collaborations with Descente, the high-end Osaka-based ski brand. Snyder put his own take on the technical gear by using English fabrics in fitted parkas. Other outerwear included oversize statement coats that Snyder called “sleeper puffers,” another collaboration with Crescent Down Works.
The vivid color palette of oranges, purples and jewel greens added an extra layer to the already athletic offering and were also employed on Snyder’s assortment of suits and tailored topcoats.
The collection stuck to

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.

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

Yeohlee RTW Fall 2019

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

Kobi Halperin RTW Fall 2019

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

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.

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

Buzzy three-year-old label Rixo London has gained renown — and an impressive retail footprint for such a young label — for its fluid, easy-to-wear print dresses based on hand-drawn designs.
For pre-fall, Henrietta Rix and Orlagh McCloskey offered up a palette centered on pale pastel shades, mixing floral and seashell designs with more graphic motifs like green stripes that had a hint of the tie-dye effect about them or another pattern that evoked something between an animal print and the light reflecting off the rain on a window.
A bias-cut floral print dress with a white background was given a contrasting white chiffon upper part with flocked black polka dots, modernizing a look that might otherwise land in pure vintage territory. Other statement pieces included a long, lightweight V-neck dress embellished with diagonal stripes of sequins in unicorn hues that will no doubt prove popular with the Instagram set the label does so well with.

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

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

Yuima Nakazato Couture Spring 2019

Is couture, the French word for sewing, still couture if there is no needle or thread involved? Japanese designer Yuima Nakazato thinks so.
His spring 2019 couture collection was created via a new production system named Type-1, a combination of digital fabrication and artisanal techniques. Tiny buttons in either metal or plastic are used to assemble pieces of laser-cut fabric from preexisting garments, which can be customized at leisure.
This procedure is meant to both extend the lifetime of a garment and create clothing that has personal meaning. In the manner of the traditional Japanese kimono, made of simple rectangular units that can be rebuilt and worn across generations, Nakazato based his collection around eight different people who took a meaningful item and made it into a wearable piece of clothing. A widow transformed her husband’s paintings into delicate smock dresses, while a child’s plush toys and favorite teddies were turned into a bespoke garment. Different scraps of lace were fixed together in a patchwork creating a flowing Victorian dress, the Type-1 rivets drawing a dotted line along the seams.
“The collection started as an endeavor to extend the lifetime of each garment,” said the designer, who aims to develop a customization concept inviting

Martin Grant Pre-Fall 2019

Martin Grant’s pre-fall collection was inspired by a bouquet of autumn leaves he received — hence the warm tangerine and forest green hues, which marked a departure from his usual understated color palette.
It heightened the Seventies vibe of a collection that was heavy on outerwear, ranging from a crisp-looking orange pea coat to a belted, checked wool trench coat. It was a new variation on the beige trench that Meghan Markle wore on her trip to Australia and New Zealand in October, prompting a flurry of interest in the brand.
“Particularly those styles that she wore, we saw a real surge and we had a lot of interest,” Grant reported. “Our online stores have sold out and they want to reorder more, and it’s still going on.”
The designer is taking it in his stride — his clientele already includes the likes of Cate Blanchett, Lee Radziwill and Middle Eastern royals, drawn to the fuss-free elegance of his creations. Among the new propositions this season: flared pantsuits, striped blouses with billowing sleeves, and off-the-shoulder dresses for day or night.
Grant also likes to include statement pieces for evening: in this case, a tent dress featuring a retro sunset print, which also found its

Lebanese-American designer Rami Kadi offered up a firework display that was an explosion of color and glitter for his first runway presentation. Inspired by the Burning Man festival.

Bustier skater dresses and slinky full-length numbers mingled with embroidered leggings or chaps, with many designs playing with asymmetry through the addition of contrasting ruffles or black patent leather half-coat features. Elaborate tribal headdresses topped several looks, enhancing the ritualistic drum beat of Kadi’s couture trip.

Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 2019

Guests arriving at Giambattista Valli’s show at the Centre Pompidou in Paris had diamonds on the soles of their shoes: the carpet was strewn with pounds of glittering Swarovski crystals that crunched underfoot. “Paris by night,” said the designer backstage. “It’s the feeling of lightness.”
That’s been in short supply this season, as couture houses struggled to complete their collections amid ongoing protests by the gilets jaunes movement, which delayed deliveries and blocked access to studios and workshops.
“I haven’t slept in two days because, like everyone, we were delayed by the gilets jaunes. It was a catastrophe,” Valli said. In fact, dresses were still being finished at the last minute, meaning the show started almost an hour late.
So what to do when life gives you lemons? Make lemonade, naturellement. “Today, France is being torn apart culturally and socially. I thought it was important to remind myself why I came here, and what makes it an extraordinary country,” the Italian designer explained.
Hence his deep dive into the essence of Paris couture, with a show that featured his signature extravagant trains, but also touched upon Orientalism and a louche sensuality that is oh-so-Parisienne. The starting point was a 1977 Helmut Newton photograph of

Dunhill Men’s Fall 2019

Building on his distinctive aesthetic for the house, Mark Weston continued his tweaking of the classic wardrobe, pushing a dressier, evening vibe underscored by a dark palette mixing gray, black and navy with optic white.
The designer tinkered with proportions, like the boxy looking double-breasted jackets, especially one in an oversize check print. New directions included the total looks based on a matching pant, jacket and funnel-neck top in the same fabric.
Details added elements of cool: the buckle belt worn off-center, kimono lapels on classic double-breasted jackets, which lent a minimalist flavor, and slits at the hem of large pants to make them flare over the shoe.
Weston continued mixing traditional pieces with leather, spanning T-shirts and shirts with white stitching details on the collar, with black velvet among the key fabrics.
His use of feminine moiré silks and a peppering of jewel tones on cummerbunds and a parka towards the end added a luxurious touch. Ditto for a striking brown print evoking the walnut burl interiors of a vintage Rolls-Royce or Jaguar.

Kenzo Fall 2019

A burst of psychedelic color and pattern greeted guests on the way into the show, which drew from designer Humberto Leon’s Chinese-Peruvian heritage and the culture of the Chinese immigrants who settled in the South American country in the 19th century. The giant hot pink, red and green murals by the shaman artist Pablo Amaringo came from visions he had while taking the hallucinogenic brew Ayahuasca.
Leon and Carol Lim looked at the cultural brew of Peru, with its hikers, tourists, natives and ethnic Chinese communities, sending out color-block technical coats and trousers, striped and patterned knits and blanket plaids for belted coats. The darker pieces worked better than the highlighter pink and rose print ones: It will take one bold man to scale the Andes in those colors, although the upside is that he’ll always be easy to spot. Tailored top coats, in burgundy or with lava lamp swirls were among the strongest pieces here.
The women’s collection channeled a similar palette, but there was lots of added texture in the form of fluffy hats, shawls, scarves and bags done in faux fur and rippling with searing bright pink, aqua and saffron. Other highlights included fringed or fuzzy knits, recycled raffia

Unravel Men’s Fall 2019

The offering of men’s looks was a lot more limited than past seasons at Unravel. “It’s probably half of what it used to be,” admitted creative director Ben Taverniti, speaking at the brand’s showroom in Paris. “I felt like over the seasons my aesthetic got lost, so I shrunk back in order to recreate this foundation and then build back as we go along.”
The small collection in a select color palette – black, white, grey – allowed for the style innovations to shine. Layering, a favorite theme, was pushed to extremes, especially on the lower level of the body: a pair of drop-crotch pants was worn with thick socks and high-top shoes, covering every inch in different layers of texture.
Zips were added to the sides of black down jackets: once open, the garment looked almost cape-like. The action exposed the different volumes underneath, like a layered denim jacket or a fine-knit cashmere.
Straps dangled along trouser legs and hoodies came printed with a torn-looking brand logo mirroring the deconstructed collages created by the team to illustrate the season’s lookbook. Analog pictures of American natural landscapes were scanned and added to the collection pictures in a nod to Taverniti’s design process. “I

Vetements Men’s and Women’s Fall 2019

“We ended up realizing that the geeks have become the new punks by inventing the smartphone, something that changed the whole world,” said Demna Gvasalia, tackling a new subject on the Vetements runway: the Internet, especially the Darknet. That includes “all the crazy, scary things that we can acquire there or use in the backstage of what we know as the Internet. How far can it go?”
It came through partly in the graphic work and slogans on hoodies and T-shirts that Gvasalia has been using since the start of the label. He used the T-shirt — “a product that is part of the fashion vocabulary, like it or not,” he reasoned — as a sounding board for what he and members of his team have on their mind and how they see the world. Slogans ranged from, “I survived swine flu, now I’m vegan,” to “Made in Europe,” with as one of the key graphics a president-themed stamp. Backpacks were decorated with scary faces, complete with creepy floor-sweeping trails of hair, while shrugs were made from disemboweled teddy bears.

OAMC Men’s Fall 2019

Tailoring is shouldering its way back into men’s wear, often with multiple layers made from the same fabric. This is how Luke Meier opened his assured show for fall, with its undercurrent of Seattle grunge and other sly Nineties references.
He’s skilled at voluptuous, large shapes, managing to make his oversized coats and shirts look chic and elegant, never sloppy. Meier employed lots of gray wool, which heightened the utilitarian undercurrent always present in his OAMC designs.
The hospital green vinyl walls were a wink to Matthew Barney’s “Cremaster” series, and the kink of Barney’s art performances surfaced in the latex turtlenecks, illustrated carrier bags and a butter-toned trench that undulated like jelly. Clinical pastels and checked patterns added some cheer to the austere shapes.
Meier’s roomy, tone-on-tone suits and coats were among the show’s strongest looks, with boxy gray wool jackets layered over long double-breasted coats and generously cut trousers. Some of them had a workwear feel, while others were more sartorial.
Other standouts included oversized check shirts and coats with a touch of Kurt Cobain, while bags and T-shirts showcased the freeform line drawings of Meier’s friend, the artist and musician Daniel Johnston. Meier said that, going forward, OAMC plans to work

Han Kjobenhavn Men’s Fall 2019

Speaking a couple of days before his brand’s first show in Paris, Jannik Wikkelso Davidsen confided it proved tricky to find a suitable venue for his planned set design, as he needed somewhere with a 10- to 15-meter-high ceiling. The result didn’t disappoint: a dystopian Denmark greeted guests at the Han Kjobenhavn show on Tuesday night, complete with towering concrete blocks and structures seemingly made of urban junk, such as a cluster of television aerials.
The theme of the collection was “Fairytale Denmark,” riffing on the idealized perception of the country by foreigners. Davidsen’s Denmark, inspired by his upbringing in suburban Copenhagen, is fierce and gritty: outdated-looking “Visit Denmark” sweatshirts were paired with baggy trousers and colorful track pants, worn by scowling youths who looked straight out of an underground club.
The designs were based around items Nineties teenagers would steal from their parents’ closet and match with their own: a football jersey was seen peeking out from underneath an oversized dad suit, leather and shearling jackets looked clearly borrowed, especially when paired with bright sweatpants or embellished jeans.
Expected Nineties nods – bare midriffs, plaid jackets, XXL knit jumpers – felt fresh thanks to clever styling, and the whole collection had a grunge

Alberta Ferretti Pre-Fall 2019

“As a designer, my goal is to bring fashion to the street, not the street into fashion,” said Alberta Ferretti, distancing herself from the industry’s current obsession for streetwear. “I designed a collection which is multifaceted as the women of today, who look for clothes exalting their beauty and at the same fitting the needs of their dynamic lifestyle.”
In keeping with her intentions, Ferretti presented a lineup that mixed the right dose of daywear with her signature romantic evening styles. More quotidian options included, for example, a beautiful trenchcoat with cape-like details worn with a quilted jacket and a cozy sweater tucked into slightly high-waisted carrot pants punctuated by zippers. Impeccable blazers were worn with flared trousers and crochet tops and a cashmere cape trimmed with leather, exuding a chic equestrian feel, was paired with a cable-knit mini dress.
Veering toward more evening situations, a short silk cocktail dress was enriched with a cascade of ruffles in a delicate combination of pink and gray tones, geometric metallic embellishments gave a sparkling feel to mini frocks, while a sensual black satin slipdress was decorated with metallic rings for an eye-catching, slightly Nineties effect.

No. 21 Men’s Fall 2019

After a sea of bright colors and a season of streetwear and logos, Alessandro Dell’Acqua served up a refined and elegant palette cleanser while still keeping it super young.
The starting point was cult classic, Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s sailor movie “Querelle de Brest.” “Not the muscles, but rather the fragility of the sailors when together,” the designer said backstage.
The cute navy and red sailor knits were the obvious till ringers. But the designer in his delivery — a super clean Nineties allure with tailored proportions — also succeeded in softening the nuances and subculture references, and make it more approachable in a young, non-threatening way, without losing impact.
That included a great black leather shirt cut with a larger collar to make it feel casual and less costume-y.
He combined new technology with classic fabrics, going from a vinyl-like coated poplin used on jackets and pants to a coat cut from black radzimir. It lent a hint of eroticism and mystery to the collection, much like the great closing parka presented fully unzipped and off the shoulder, like an evening gown, only worn over a crisp white shirt and tie.

MSGM Men’s Fall 2019

Massimo Giorgetti’s Sunday got off to a turbo-charged start in this dynamic homage to motor racing culture, mixing in tailoring and a Nineties post-punk attitude, Milano style.
The motorsport theme came through most literally in the flame-licked denim, logo T-shirts, archive photos of Ayrton Senna printed in shirts, and color-blocked shiny leathers with gathered drawstring waists.
Channeling a vitamin-charged energy, meanwhile, were the pink and orange neon K-ways in crunchy technical nylon, interspersed with gray and beige total looks with more of a Made-in-Italy bent, with puffers and leopard-print fleeces layered over elegant double-breasted wool coats. Giving a symbolic hometown nod were the black sweatshirts embroidered with the outline of the Madonnina topping the spire of Milan’s Duomo cathedral, part of the city’s skyline.
Tailoring in the expanded collection ranged from boxy double-breasted pinstripe blazers to the designer’s take on the new suit, pairing a zipped top and pant with the word ‘proibito,’ or ‘forbidden,’ printed on the fly.
The designer’s collaboration with Fila, on the brand’s 1992 Silva model, came strung from fanny packs worn by some of the models, with square-toed boots punctuating most of the looks.
Dynamic black-and-white scenes from the Eighties Japanese soccer-themed cartoon “Holly & Benji” surfaced in jacquards on

Biuu Men’s Fall 2019

The Shanghai-based label designed by Wu Hao looked to opposites, outer space and the ancient Mayans for this polished collection of streetwear and tailored clothing. Tracksuits and slim boiler suits came color blocked, with pixel patterns or sparkling panels, while a puffer coat had a wavy optical grid print. Hao’s knits and tailored outerwear were standouts, as in a loose orange waffle knit sweater, and another with the image of an astronaut on the back. A dove gray car coat glistened as if it was wet while another, longer one was blindingly bright thanks to a flourish of neon yellow quilting that may well turn France’s “gilets jaunes” green with envy. An orange coat was tempered by the addition of a sleeveless, black leather vest, while stripes in primary colors jazzed up a few sober gray plaid jackets. Since he began showing in Milan last January, Hao has been looking to impress audiences in Europe and Asia-Pacific with his designs, and is making progress with two flagship stores in Shanghai.
