The Met Counts on Vatican for Costume Institute’s Spring Exhibition Pieces

LIKE A PRAYER: Some scholars and pundits contest that religion is the root of most of the conflict in the world, but that hasn’t deterred the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute from taking on “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” as its spring exhibition.
The juxtaposition of fashion and masterworks of religious art will be designed to examine fashion’s ongoing engagement with the devotional practices and traditions of Catholicism. The Met has arranged to showcase a group of papal robes and accessories from the Vatican, highlighting the enduring influence of liturgical vestments on designers. A battery of designers — Thierry Mugler, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Thom Browne, Azzedine Alaïa, John Galliano for the House of Dior, Claire McCardell, Madeleine Vionnet, Isabel Toledo, Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino, Elsa Schiaparelli, Raf Simons for his own label and the House of Dior — will have their work on view.
The multilayered exhibition will be held at The Met Fifth Avenue in both the medieval galleries and the Anna Wintour Costume Center. The show will also be housed in the city’s northern regions at The Met Cloisters, creating a trio of distinct gallery locations. When the show opens, Met ticket holders will wander amid 50 ecclesiastical

Toga RTW Spring 2018

Thanks to support from Amazon Fashion via its At Tokyo program, Yasuko Furuta presented her first show in Tokyo in 12 years, and it just so happened to coincide with her brand’s 20th anniversary. The designer said she views it as her job to always be creating new things, and therefore, she didn’t want to pull styles from her archives but wanted to create a collection that was as representative of her brand as possible. Her models descended via escalator to a curved runway set up on the ground floor of the National Art Center Tokyo. She added feminine detailing such as cinched waists and cropped lengths to men’s wear, while masculine shapes and tailoring was mixed into her women’s offering. Pleated skirts had a hole in the front for one leg to pass through, dresses had high slits or a single long sleeve, and trousers had wide legs and high waists. A series of subtly deconstructed suiting included jackets that were turned inside out or had cutout backs or lopped off sleeves. Furuta incorporated a variety of eye-catching textures, from clear vinyl and sheer mesh to plastic-y crinkle fabrics and a ruched metallic plaid.

J Brand RTW Spring 2018

Staged in a sun-filled studio set with loads of green plants and wicker chairs on which the models lounged, it was easy to infer an organic, clean California aesthetic from J Brand’s spring collection. The collection’s jeans — many cropped with high waists, wide or straight legs in powdery pink, natural off-white and traditional blue indigo — will pair well with the pottery-loving, gluten- and dairy-free cool girl’s lifestyle. From jean jackets to white Ts to a black leather miniskirt, the shapes were mostly clean and classic with little to no whiskering and the only distressing a raw hem or two. For the first time, men’s was included in the presentation, with the guys playing perfect counterpart to the girls in skinny jeans and relaxed jackets in shades of white, gray and faded blue.

Hyke RTW Spring 2018

Elegant, modern and minimalist, Yukiko Ode and Hideaki Yoshihara’s spring collection showed a polish and professionalism that can only be gained through experience. They showed largely monotone looks in neutral shades of khaki, brown, black and white, with some snakeskin print thrown in for contrast. Long, pleated organza skirts were worn over slim pants with slits at the back of the ankles, and jackets were layered over calf-length dresses. A collaboration with The North Face produced outdoorsy anorak jackets in extralong or ultracropped lengths, providing the perfect contrast to the contemporary urban aesthetic of the other pieces.

Viviano Sue RTW Spring 2018

Both the show notes and the runway, with its garden-like installation at the end, made Sue’s inspiration for spring clear: flowers and nature. He used a literal interpretation, turning out loose chiffon dresses, ruffled blouses and oversized shirts in a variety of botanical prints. He mixed these with black satin bomber jackets and trousers that snapped down the side like track pants. A series of monotone ensembles in dusty rose felt out of place, and the show closed with a grouping of tulle dresses with long trains and lots of gathering. In all black or all white, some of these were reminiscent of wedding dresses, and also distracted from the rest of the collection.

For her first presentation during Tokyo Fashion Week, she showed tailored suits and preppy cuffed shorts and polo shirts for men, and short suits, tweed jackets, and swing dresses for women.

Mikio Sakabe has long been one of Japan’s favorite avant-garde brands, and the spring offering was no exception. Now designed by the founder and his wife, Shueh Jen-Fang, its latest collection featured quirky takes on colorful Eighties power suits. V-neck buttoned dresses were layered over ruffled blouses, and skirts and jacket sleeves were voluminous to the max. The looks were complemented by extreme platform shoes, causing the models to step gingerly down the runway. The show closed with a coat and suit jacket in a dainty floral print, each with padded, three-dimensional protrusions in the shape of hearts or stars.

Nerd Unit RTW Spring 2018

Overt military references permeated Ronald Chew’s latest streetwear offering. A large portion of the collection was turned out in a geometric camouflage print in either green or gray, and some looks were accessorized with a flag, combat helmet or police hat. A workman-style jumpsuit for men and a women’s ensemble consisting of a black velour T-shirt and wide-leg pants provided a small dose of variety, but overall the cargo pants and parkas felt repetitive.

It showed a mix of ath-leisure and preppy looks, nearly all in stark white, that would all have looked right at home in a country club. But the cropped racer-back tanks, tennis dresses, jogger pants, sports shorts and blazers quickly became repetitive and failed to provide excitement.

Original Penguin Taps Band AJR for Spring 2018 Campaign

Men’s wear brand Original Penguin has tapped New York-based indie band AJR for its spring campaign, to be released in February of next year. Brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met were in Los Angeles this week to shoot the campaign as well as the music video for their single “Come Hang Out,” off their new album “The Click,” a version of which will also serve as the video campaign for OP’s spring collection.

“The shoot is some performance and some facial expressions, sort of like acting,” said Jack Met, explaining the concept of the video. “We are at a crazy party, but we are so busy performing that we don’t really notice the party going on around us,” he said.
Adam Met explained that it’s their first time linking with a fashion brand. “Original Penguin has great style, great simplicity and a throwback vibe that mirrors our style as a band. I also like the juxtapositions in the line, like a Seventies print shirt with Nineties pants. It’s sort of our like our music, a post-modern mix.”

Tatsuya Kimura and Sanae Yoshida went grungy for spring, layering hooded sweatshirts, coats and loose-fitting pants in mixed plaids, denim, tie-dye and patchwork. Interspersed were a few more elegant looks of tailored black pants and jackets with flame motifs embroidered above the hems. And — likely due to the brand winning last season’s DHL Designer Award — there were also DHL branded T-shirts and bandages worn over nose bridges, which felt forced and over the top.

Many of the textiles selected by Ayumi Sekiguchi and Yusuke Muramatsu for their spring collection seemed to come from interior design elements, including curtains, upholstery and cushion covers. There was lots of lace, ruffles and scalloped trim on girly dresses and long skirts, while a bathrobe so closely resembled curtains that it even had a rope belt with tasseled ends. The designers also used botanical motifs, with floral accents embroidered onto the sleeves of jackets or the fronts of blouses.

For her debut collection, Risa Aizawa drew inspiration from the neighborhood of Akihabara in Tokyo, which is known as a center of anime, manga and video game culture. She showed both innocent, Lolita-like looks, such as a quilted white dress with flounce sleeves and a bloomers-and-bib combo with a chiffon cape over the top, and darker, edgier pieces like skin-baring black HotPants and crop tops and body-con dresses covered in attached teddy bears. There was even a maid’s outfit, a nod to the fetishized “maid cafes” that are famous in Akihabara.

Tory Sport RTW Spring 2018

Tory Burch’s Sport line is not for the girl who wants to blend in with the legions of fitness fiends clad in black leggings, black sports bras and black tanks with a white swoop here or there. Her line goes big with happy color, for spring, inspired by David Hicks, as was her main line. Burch brought Hick’s florals and bold, graphic color into sport with printed navy and scarlet bomber, an orange and blue sports bra and leggings, and a floral-printed Neoprene zip-up one-piece swimsuit.
It wasn’t just cute. Burch takes the performance aspect of the collection seriously, pushing her staff to infuse technical development into everything, whether it’s Coolmax cashmere sweatpants, a ruffled tennis sweater or golf vest. “I said, ‘Let’s make functionality a given, not a design detail,’” said Burch during a preview. In addition to working with fabrics with wicking, cooling and anti-microbial properties, golf skirts come with under-shorts and pockets big enough for scorecards and a yellow and navy jacket is fully reversible to a waterproof rain slicker. As for the Little Grumps frowny-faced tennis balls that have become a charming brand logo and graced a fresh white oversize sweater, pastel sweatshirts and Ts, well, that

This brand, designed anonymously, put on a presentation that was part fashion show and part street performance, all set in an old Noh theater. Bikers popped wheelies in branded satin parkas, and skateboarders did laps in hooded sweatshirts, baggy shorts and oversize coats. Athletic influences were seen in track skirts and sweatpants, but the most common denominator were the logos, which were printed prominently on nearly every piece.

Cheerleaders jumped around shaking gold pom-poms and threw each other into the air, creating a fun, festivallike atmosphere. The clothes were less exciting, with lots of simple shapes like work-inspired shirts, pants and coveralls, as well as outdoorsy shorts and rain ponchos. Teshima did his best to spice things up with color and quirky prints, including turtles, tiles, pizza and tie-dye.

Masakazu Takeguchi’s first show for Tokyo Fashion Week had a rock concert vibe, with the entire audience standing, the closest members just inches from the raised, narrow runway. The clothes followed a similar vein, with long fringe hanging from tank tops, skirts, trousers and shorts. All-black looks included jeans splattered in white paint, an open-knit sweater and dresses with uneven hems. While overall the look was very street, a variety of blazers and tailored separates added polish.

AG RTW Spring 2018

AG’s team of designers was inspired by Joan Didion for spring — everything from her personal style and writing, down to certain descriptive words she used in interviews. Didion’s balance of vulnerable writing against a fearlessness in speaking her mind translated into silhouettes that balanced masculine and feminine design, as in a boxy utilitarian jacket, men’s-inspired shirting and rigid denim with raw hems, paint splatter and embroidery. The subdued color palette of washed-down blues, desert tones and green further referenced her writings on nature.

Boss RTW Spring 2018

Going into his fourth year at the helm of Hugo Boss women’s collections, Jason Wu has chosen to simplify, streamline and lighten things up, not only in terms of the collection’s aesthetic but in his approach to presenting it. He’s stepped away from the runway for the past few seasons, presenting in Boss’ downtown Manhattan showroom after the madness of fashion month ends and skipped pre-collection presentations altogether.
“No one needs to see that much clothes,” Wu said. That doesn’t mean he’s not producing. In addition to the spiffy, nautical-themed spring lineup, there’s a new capsule Gallery collection that’s for Boss stores only. It’s full of colorblocking, bright tailored separates and soft pleated skirts.
As for spring, “It’s a lot less dressy and more casual,” he said, noting that he’s been focused on taking the stuffing out of Boss’ signature rigid suiting for the past few seasons, offering the Boss woman a lot in the way of chic and relaxed. The graphic print on a pretty draped and gently pleated dress was actually mini yellow and blue fish. A bright yellow boxy jacket was done in waterproof bonded nylon, like an update of a classic fisherman’s slicker. A neat navy peacoat came

There were more conservative looks, too — such as a black-and-white pencil skirt and blouse combo, with a ribbed hem reminiscent of an athletic jacket, but they still fit the overall theme for a fun and cohesive collection.

BYO RTW Spring 2018

When he was asked to show his BYO handbags in a runway show a few seasons ago, Jakarta-based accessories designer Tommy Ambiyo jumped at the chance, but he was disappointed to see the accessories taking a backseat to the clothes they were shown with. So he decided to create his own wearable pieces that would showcase, not eclipse, his bags.
The result was eye-catching, if not completely wearable, tops made from the same woven plastic and latex as his handbags. The materials were woven together to create clutches and totes, some simple, and some embellished with plastic paillettes and pieces resembling feathers.
In this case, the tops were a colorful complement to the bags, and Ambiyo kept the rest of the styling minimal, sending out models in the same navy skirts and black pumps, with slicked-back hair and no-makeup makeup.
Ambiyo has found success in is home country, selling more than 6,000 bags in the two years since he relaunched his label. He said the vibrant colors were inspired by the solar eclipse, noting, “During an eclipse you see the craziest colors in the sky.”

The crisp awning stripes of Positano merged with the rustic coastal flavor of Trancoso, Brazil in Stephanie von Watzdorf’s spring Figue collection. She kept her signature perennially vacation-ready, bohemian staples fresh with new languid kimonos, the coolest one done in pieces of many vibrant prints and voluminous cotton shirts — some striped, some solid, some a mix of prints — that cutaway almost to a dress length. The kimonos and shirts looked great over printed pajama pants and beachy cotton styles jazzed up with tassels but would work just as well with jeans. For accessories, she introduced a fully beaded moccasin sneaker and slip-on sneakers with decorated with fluffy pom-poms.

Eloshi RTW Spring 2018

Georgian designer Lela Eloshvili straddled antiquity and modernity for spring and the effect was a balance of opposites.
“Eloshi’s collection speaks [to] history,” the designer explained.
Eloshvili has played with proportion in the past with her line and spring was no different. A portion of the runway looks appeared reminiscent of the Eighties with strong shoulders or boxy suiting references against a strong palette of black, white and red.
The inspiration, Eloshvili said, was 20th-century Georgia when women in the country dressed with Western influences.
In contrast, the rest of the collection looked to Georgian history with references to wine-making and traditional clothing. The mood of that portion of the collection was lighter through the use of silk fabrics and natural cotton. Eloshvili created her own prints, mixing imagery of grapes and the Georgian alphabet for a skirt with a fitted bodice that flared out or loose-fitting shirtdress.
She also drew inspiration from the Chokha, a traditional Georgian garment, with elements of the cinched-waist coat used throughout the collection.

Jeffry Tan RTW Spring 2018

Jakarta-based designer Jeffry Tan is known in Asia for his draped eveningwear inspired by the clean lines of urban architecture. Most of the silhouettes were plays on the bias-cut column dress, several of which he spiced up with diagonal stripes or crisscross straps.
This season, Tan said he was branching out into more streetwear-inspired looks such as slouchy satin trousers, which he paired with sharp-shouldered jackets in silk crepe and satin.
These pieces were more effective than the blousy smocked dresses, which seemed too serious in black yet not formal enough to match the sophistication of the rest of the collection.
While he works in a mostly monochromatic palette, saying, “I’m a bad painter so I’m not good with color,” Tan did have a bright yellow and a fuchsia gown in the lineup. He also used his signature zigzag pattern to add interested to pant legs and side sleeves.
Tan and his fellow Jakarta-based designers were seeking a wider audience in Los Angeles, and many of their evening looks succeeded in generating attention from Hollywood stylists and bloggers.

Noe Bernacelli RTW Spring 2018

Peruvian designer Noe Bernacelli made his U.S. debut at Los Angeles fashion week, but he’s already well-known in South America and Asia for his glamorous eveningwear. Having studied fashion design in Italy, Bernacelli’s intention when he returned home to found his company seven years ago was to raise the bar for designers in Peru, and the skill of his atelier was apparent in the body-skimming dresses and gowns featuring intricate beading and embroidery over sheer chiffon, mesh and lace. For spring, he stuck with an ivory and gold palette, punctuated by pops of royal blue and dark green. The lineup also featured a handful of well-tailored suits for men, with the same slim silhouettes as his evening gowns. One could easily see these clothes on a Hollywood red carpet — the dresses already populate the society and editorial pages of Hola and Vogue Latin America — and a natural next step would be to translate the already romantic looks into bridal.

Gauchère RTW Spring 2018

Marie-Christine Statz found a new fabric to explore with this season: lace. But not the fluffy, dusty kind from granny’s closet, this was technical lace, a chic, black grid that projected a sporty look.
Statz used it to construct a sleeveless dress that gently puffed out from a gathered waist, paired with long, loose black trousers — proof that the collision between daywear and nightwear can actually work.
There was also plenty for the day job, including suits with layers, slits and buttons. The trousers on one pair could be transformed into long, wide shorts, it was just a case of tackling the ring of buttons at the knees.
“I think it’s about easy simplicity….I wanted it to not be overdramatic. This is the woman I can somehow relate to,” Statz noted. She drove the point home with her use of a fine, light gray wool that formed part of the masculine-feminine mix of this engaging collection.

Leal Daccarett RTW Spring 2018

For the second Parisian presentation of their brand Leal Daccarett, Colombian designers Karen Daccarett and Francisco Leal offered a flirtatiously Latin collection that steered clear of clichés while tapping into its home country and its layered, dance-filled heritage.
Established in 2008, the brand helmed by the married duo became a fast favorite of the current First Lady of Colombia, María Clemencia De Santos, who was spotted wearing their designs on state visits, most notably to Spain and the U.K.
La Fantástica, their summer line, ranged from bathing suits to floor-length dresses — whether these were exuberant daywear or low-key evening fare was left up to the wearer. With just enough froth to make it fun, the collection had denims adorned with charming character patches or coral pieces; a blue denim set of a long jacket and wide trousers embellished with raw-edged ruffles; tiered dresses in a navy and white palm print, and long caftans. Cottons, silk and denim came together in a palette of blues and whites.
“It’s a proud moment to be Colombian, and we’re showing who we are and how comfortable we are with that,” Leal said during a showroom appointment.

Alexander McQueen RTW Spring 2018

The fashion bubble. We all know what it means: that from right after Labor Day until whatever date in early October, our lives are consumed by fashion. Sorry, friends; life partners; kids starting school, whether pre-K or college, fashion takes priority, the most important thing.
Only we all know that that’s not really true, that many things are far more important than fashion. Just ask anyone in the industry who was on the show circuit on Sept. 11, 2001. On Monday, a day of unimaginable tragedy in the U.S., Paris Fashion Week went on, the fashion throng assembling for the Alexander McQueen show as the Las Vegas death toll mounted. There’s no good way to transition to a fashion review, but to not acknowledge the event feels wildly uncomfortable.
Backstage before her show, McQueen’s Sarah Burton talked about her desire to deliver an optimistic collection, a notion expressed by a number of designers this season. “So many terrible things happen in the world. We should celebrate people and fashion and creativity,” she said. “I wanted to celebrate beauty and femininity. I wanted to do an uplifting collection.”
And so she did, an exquisite one based on English gardens, specifically the gardens at Great

Sacai RTW Spring 2018

Every season Chitose Abe draws on different references to dice and dissect into her signature hybrid fashions. In that sense, the collections never look the same but there is a deep consistency. This time the look felt genuinely new. It was a fabulous collection — pretty, fresh, fun, cool, wearable. All the good stuff.
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what Abe did differently. The hybridizations were still there, in jackets and skirts pieced together from colorful strips of men’s wear glen plaid. A riff on a men’s vest was made into a sporty dress assembled from patches of camouflage, nylon and pinstripes. And a crewneck sweater was spliced with a piece of a madras shirt and florals.
Infused with a fresh, feel-good attitude, the garments felt lighter and easier than usual despite intense constructions. One of the best looks was a long skirt made from panels of different fabrics — a piece of a trench sewn together with a piece of flowy pleated magenta fabric, green satin and light blue shirting material, creating a rainbow of a garment paired with a simple, sporty tank printed with the words “Beware It’s Everywhere.” Backstage after the show, Abe, who was wearing a T-shirt with

Johnny Talbot and Adrian Runhof expressed a serene state of mind through a collection featuring clean, lean shapes with a strong Seventies vibe.
That wasn’t the only thing the decade provided. Shantung, one fabric of the season, evoked a zen feeling, while the flower-power connection was impossible to miss. Blooms climbed on everything, starting with 3-D flowers on a poplin shirt, to embroidered crystal motifs along the waist of a dress, lending their color palette of white, greens and brights.
Despite an overwhelming turquoise floral jacquard, the collection ended up coming across as pared back, even in the evening styles they are famed for. The best looks were those that struck a glamorous note: a short-sleeved pantsuit in golden yellow, a turquoise shiftdress, wide white trousers and a multilayered blue evening dress.

Alessandra Rich RTW Spring 2018

Alessandra Rich always concocts a charmingly daffy story, usually of a young girl with big dreams and questionable taste, within which to frame her ditzy-fab dresses. For spring it began with the iconic “V-J Day in Times Square” photo of a sailor impulsively kissing a nurse (she was actually a dental assistant) in celebration of the end of the Second World War. Rich had a new story for the nurse: “The young girl moved on, she still loves uniforms, matched with diamond brooches and huge jewel buttons, but now you’re going to have to fight to kiss her,” read the show notes, which were as fun and fanciful as the collection.
As the girl moved on, Rich did too, expanding beyond her standard repertoire of glam, gauche dresses with military-inspired tailoring and posh but plucky tweeds. A blue admirals jacket was done with rhinestone buttons instead of brass and a cheekier — literally — version was cut just below the bum and worn as a dress. Although worn with geek-chic glasses with gold chain-link lanyards, Rich’s tweed jackets were more suited to a day at the pool than the library as they came in candy colors and were worn with HotPants.

Isabel Marant RTW Spring 2018

Now the cool boys in Isabel Marant’s entourage can rest easy: The French designer has finally come through with men’s wear, and it’s here to stay. “I gave in to popular demand,” she admitted backstage, saying the campaign had been going on since her popular H&M hookup four years ago. The guys were offered thick gauge knits that poured over their shoulders like treacle, Windbreakers and toothsome trackpants, with rope flip-flops or slides on the feet.
But back to the girls. The show started with crisp white: frilled shirts; ingénue broderie anglaise minidresses; denim with circular patterns piercing the legs; a double-breasted jacket tucked into trousers that were loose on the thigh and tight at the ankle. Sporty details started to crop up.
By midway point, the collection hit its stride, brash colors and metallic materials bringing a sporty-glam mien: boiler suits rolled down to reveal swimwear; trackpants were cut from shimmery florals and paired with voluminous tops; lightweight blousons could pass for shirtdresses, and high-cut briefs had the aplomb of daring shorts. Whenever she went too high on the leg and too voluminous on the sleeve, it didn’t quite work, like wearing stilettos to the beach. Performance water sports details —

Manish Arora RTW Spring 2018

Manish Arora was in an amorous mood for spring. His pastel-infused “Ready for Love” collection was a joyous riot of vintage-inspired psychedelic prints, elaborate embroideries, rich Indian brocades, sequined motifs and Middle Eastern references.
Luxurious sleepwear-inspired designs with a dream-catcher pattern mingled with guipure gowns covered in hearts, kitschy embellished knitwear and embroidered denim jackets. Sequined boxer shorts, pants and dresses, brocade or printed bombers and a chain-mail top made up of interlinked embroidered hands all contributed to the festivities.
The designer’s romantic message was sewn in sequins on a couple of looks, adding a touch of street into this maelstrom of candy-colored extravagance.
Skirts and dresses came in mid-calf and floor-length designs, either flowing or wrapped around the body. The transparency that is all over the Paris runways was interpreted in washed out fluorescent or gold layers of tulle that softened up certain looks.
Arora managed to evoke femininity and frivolity in one fell swoop with this rainbow of a collection, a welcome ray of sunshine in contrast with the rainy Paris day outside.

Glenn Martens didn’t reinvent what he’s been doing at Y/Project for his spring collection, but he did cast a new eye on the quintessential dorky dad in his Hawaiian shirt and khakis; the goody-two shoes country club girl in her pink cardigan, white blouse and pearls; and the Nineties suburban kid who listened to rap in his fleece, jeans and Timberlands. Martens gave these uniforms of mundanity, conformity and complete lack of imagination a new lease on life. Even the natty, shapless faded red polo worn to death by an endearingly clueless goof I was smitten with a few years ago had hope in Martens’ hands. It was reimagined as a crop top with a drawstring waist and worn over bunched tulle pants.
Taking what’s familiar and basic way out of its comfort zone is Martens’ gift and goal. It’s within the universe of what Demna Gvasalia started Vetements with, but Martens’ vision is far more romantic. “Y/Project is always about individuality and reinforcing personality and characters,” he said backstage. “Sometimes on the catwalk you see different kind of women, but sometimes also all these women are new.” He gave play-the-rules stereotypes permission to break the mold, cutting a pair of

Jacquemus RTW Spring 2018

Mom. The first influencer. At some point, many designers offer overt homage. Simon Porte Jacquemus did so initially by taking his mother’s maiden name, Jacquemus, for his collection. For spring, he celebrated a specific element of her style. “I don’t think I ever saw my mother more beautiful than on evenings after the beach and probably when she was in love,” he wrote in his program notes. Mother and son would take a walk, visiting “souvenir shops filled with earrings, ceramics, sarongs and headbands.” “La bombe,” he called her archetype.
La bombe’s vibe of upbeat, beach-y glamour defined the collection, “the idea of going down to the harbor after a long day at the beach and wanting to feel beautiful,” Jacquemus said post-show. Yet he presented in the glorious Picasso Museum, perhaps to telegraph that these clothes are polished enough for any urban situation. While so many other designers, young and not so, are racing to do street, Jacquemus’s theme let him have it both ways – dressing down as a way of dressing up, keeping the attitude cool and the look hot. What’s more relaxed than artfully mismatched drop earrings and, for heels, whimsical geometric configurations? What’s sexier that a swimsuit reimagined

Edithmarcel RTW Spring 2018

Old Greece and streetwear informed Gianluca Ferracin and Andrea Masato’s unisex collection Edithmarcel. The former was recalled via the use of color — the red and blue reminiscent of old Greece — while the use of materials such as denim, jersey, cotton and technical fabrics brought the streetwear sensibility into the lineup. In terms of cuts, everything read casual, almost uniform like. “We printed our logo in everything from jackets to dress shirts — its genderless; pants and skirts have elastic waistbands, jackets are fluid, shirts have that boyfriend fit,” explained Ferracin, who has a fashion design background, while his partner Masato comes from the architecture field.

Trussardi RTW Spring 2018

Gaia Trussardi’s spring collection, the first for which she combined men’s and women’s on the runway, was a nice display of how a leather goods house can translate its main material into clothes. She used a flight motif — airplanes, parachutes, Amelia Earhart — to frame chic bomber jackets, airy parachute dresses, and utility tailoring, such as shirts, leather shorts, jumpsuits and smartly cut trenches. Some of the pieces were leather and suede, but not all. Trussardi used it as an accent on skirts spliced with leather strips. At times sensual — dresses had cutout backs and shirts were shown open over bra tops — the lineup had an alluring relaxed polish.

Vionnet RTW Spring 2018

Before a stitch of clothing was seen on the runway, Vionnet’s spring show was a coup for Goga Ashkenazi. She managed to secure as a venue Milan’s church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, where, behind a wall in the cloisters where the show was held, sits one of the most famous works of art in the history of man: The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci. A private tour of the painting was offered for guests after the show. That Ashkenazi was able to convince the head priest to lend her such a hallowed space for a fashion show — the first ever to take place there — is a testament to her chutzpah, which is the force driving the oil and gas executive to resuscitate the house of Vionnet.
Her spring collection was proof that she’s come a long way on the steep fashion learning curve since taking over the house. Despite the show venue, da Vinci codes in the collection were tenuous. “For me, Madeleine Vionnet was timeless and da Vinci was timeless,” Ashkenazi said backstage. Rather, the lineup was born mostly from an obsession with Bushido, Japanese samurai culture, which lent itself nicely to Vionnet’s signature draping. Long,

Rossella Jardini RTW Spring 2018

Rossella Jardini’s mix of feminine elegance and ironic playfulness was clearly in evidence in her spring 2018 collection. The classic white shirt served as the starting point for the whole lineup. The staple was re-interpreted in an array of variations. A crisp cotton shirt featured seductive cutouts at the shoulders and was matched with a skirt trimmed with ruffles. Another micro striped style with a patch pocket was knotted below the bust and matched with a circle skirt. Shirt dresses included a short, flared style worked in a polka dot pattern, as well as a maxi number splashed with a graphic, pop motif of stars and hearts. The “Jardinette” print, featuring artist Antonio Pippolini’s colorful sketched portraits of Jardini, gave a playful touch to an airy silk dress embellished with a drawstring at the waist. With its easy silhouettes, chic colors and feminine touches, the collection definitely enables Jardini to proclaim, as she did on one of her T-shirts for spring: “I’m the most elegant woman I know!”

The Gigi RTW Spring 2018

Ana Gimeno Brugada demonstrated her sophisticated color sensibility with a charming collection that leaned heavily on her personal style, which focuses on a mannish attitude softened by lively feminine accents. Playing with garment dyeing, she created degrade effects on a pair of sky blue cotton pants matched with a coordinated ruffled shirt. The set was worn with a chic orange velvet blazer embellished with buttons embossed with the image of a crown. A blue jacket trimmed in white was worn over a cotton shirt and a cropped sweater and was matched with floral jacquard oversized short pants, infused with a tomboy feel. A glossy finish gave an interesting look to a yellow trench paired with purple pants and a striped jumper. Gimeno Brugada managed to infuse new energy into traditional silhouettes, which should appeal to those women who don’t shy away from bold colors.

Amanda Wakeley RTW Spring 2018

Amanda Wakeley has a friend who upped sticks and moved to Uraguay, bought a ranch and now splits her time between London and riding horses in the South American wild. Pictures of her friend on horseback and musings on her new way of life were the basis for Wakeley’s spring collection, which was rich with subtle references to the Americas.
Bright flashes of sunshine yellow freshened the black, white and khaki palette, while nods to traditional gaucho and Romani gypsy costumes were seen in the whipstitching on the wide straps of bags, striped webbing belts that cinched dresses, and in bohemian silk peasant blouses.
But this is Amanda Wakeley. There was nothing quaint or Spaghetti Western about these looks. Wakeley’s woman is more luxe feminine boho than frontier trading post settler. A white silk peasant blouse trimmed with a fine black ribbon at the neck was teamed with a pair of wide-legged pants in a sporty black-and-white stripe, and belted with a yellow striped sash, while a fluid silk gown in a black, white and yellow scarf print conveyed ethnicity without approaching pastiche.
Jumpsuits with field pockets on the chest in khaki or white looked great and added a nice utilitarian vibe, while

Faustine Steinmetz RTW Spring 2018

For Faustine Steinmetz’s first foray on the runway, the Parisian-born designer focused on reworking classic wardrobe pieces such as a trenchcoat, denim jeans and a tracksuit.
“I want to show what the brand is about,” said Steinmetz. “I wanted to take ten pieces of clothing that everyone has had and just redo [them]. Deconstruct [them]. Show [them] in lots of different ways but always keeping the same patterns. It’s called facsimile. We photocopied the patterns of these pieces and then got creative with the fabric. The concept is to re-create everyday pieces, in our own way and make them special.”
She cleverly demonstrated her artisanal craftsmanship, taking traditional silhouettes and fusing her own techniques and finishes on sustainable materials.
The designer took apart a trenchcoat which was haphazardly cut and torn and worn over a satin white dress that had a deconstructed hem. Steinmetz hand-painted another overcoat style with slick oil paints, which gave it a slightly shiny and waxed effect.
Elsewhere, she injected florals and deconstructed a long scarf with a botanical print and fashioned it as a blouse by draping the soft fabric over shoulders and held together with invisible straps. This was paired with denim jeans.
She debuted men’s wear and created

Front Row At Versus RTW Spring 2018

VIDEO STAR: Lottie Moss looks set to join the ranks in the vlogosphere. “I get so many people [on Instagram] asking what I’m wearing and what makeup I’m using that I thought people might like it if I did videos that show my fashion and beauty choices,” she said.
The model was recently  in L.A. to work on a big project that, so far, she’s keeping mum about. She tacked on a short break with a friend and played tour guide. “She’d never been to Los Angeles before so I showed her all the sights – Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, Malibu. It was cool.”

While there, she posted a picture of herself in a tiny bikini by Same Swim that followed a video of her working out doing a side plank. One begets the other, really. “I try to see my trainer, three to four times a week,” she said. “We work hard! Sometimes it’s boxing and skipping, sometimes weights. Always different.”
Her front row neighbors included singer-songwriter Ne-Yo, who spent the pre-show moments making silly faces into his phone while taking selfies, and FKA Twigs, who had a refreshingly straightforward reason for braving the anti-fur protestors outside to attend the show,

Temperley London RTW Spring 2018

The bohemian, sunsets and summer parties-loving Alice Temperley tribe saw a poetic display of the designer’s ultra-feminine silhouettes and signature artisanal patterns. It’s true that at times this formula gets a too literal translation – although one that is never too hard to look at – but for spring, the designer gave her loyal followers something more grown-up, more thoughtful to live with.
The show opened with a halter-neck dress composed of more graphic folksy patterns. The early Fifties came to mind, perhaps set somewhere on a breezy island off the Mediterranean coast. There were no unnecessary frills or flounces, just a humble buttoned silhouette in blue, white and red with a matching head wrap.
The looks that followed, including breezy shirt and wrap dresses, were more elaborate in style, some boasting prints that harkened back to vintage pottery patterns from the Provence, but Temperley tamed them with little belts cinched tightly at the waist. No vertiginous heels here either, just a pair of flat-form knotted sandals to suit a woman who might be on vacation, but still has an agenda.
There was an interesting take on the pajama look, too, which comprised a wide-legged, cropped trouser and flow-y shirt-blazer, letting off a

Markus Lupfer RTW Spring 2018

A Slim Aarons photo came to life at Markus Lupfer’s cheerfully decadent spring presentation. The only difference was his girls had more fun at the imaginary pool – and with their clothing. Picture them tucking  their printed cabana shirts into high-waist briefs and parading in translucent dresses with floral appliqués that were modeled after vintage swimming caps.
All the while, mischievous little monkeys were swinging from vines on a print used for retro-tinged pool turbans and the set’s boisterous furniture.
It all felt a little naughty, but made sophisticated via Lupfer’s luxurious use of fabric. He employed pleated georgette for colorful skirts that were veiled with black organza, oozing  a chic and entertaining air. Twin sets matched with Chevron knits were fetching. Once came with knitted drawstring shorts and platform sandals that were fastened with straps in the shape of jewelled parrots and sequinned rainbows.
With everything being so serious lately, Lupfer said he just wanted to have fun and see life in color again. “This is for the hedonistic girl, addicted to excess, who enjoys life,” he said of his fun-loving tableau.

Front Row at Nicopanda RTW Spring 2018

SEALED AND DELIVERED: Fresh off the runway at House of Holland, Jazzelle Zanaughtti was raving about Nicola Formichetti’s project with Amazon, which arguably resulted in the fastest delivery in retail history on Saturday night, following the designer’s spring show for Nicopanda.
“How you can order the clothes right off the runway and they show up an hour later — that’s crazy! We are really living in the future. I just loved how [the models] came out carrying the boxes. Such a cool walk,” enthused Zanaughtti, seated front row at the show. The gender-bending model, who features in Asos.com’s new beauty campaign, said she was still getting used to seeing her face on a large poster. “I’ve never been on a billboard before, and now it’s on buses, too,” she grinned, flashing her gold grill.
Alex Pettyfer, meanwhile, brushed off his model credentials, which have stuck to him for years. “I did Burberry — like once, ten years ago,” he said.
No doubt, the actor has moved on. He is currently editing “Back Roads,” a drama based on Tawni O’Dell’s New York Times bestseller of the same name, which will mark his directional debut. “It was a very humbling experience to be on the other side,”

Orla Kiely RTW Spring 2018

Orla Kiely referenced the Seventies R&B group The Pointer Sisters for spring. The designer looked to the cover of the songstress’ self-titled album, which was released in May 1973 and to later songs such as “Jump,” “Neutron Dance” and “I’m So Excited.”
“I’m loving how they were nostalgically dressing in this tropical, Forties eccentric style,” said Kiely. “It was very eccentric, a tropical Seventies take on the Forties.”
The collection was filled with fun, ladylike dresses done in exuberant floral patterns. This season, the designer looked to more grown-up silhouettes with some hemlines below the knee and dresses nipped at the waist.
Among the standouts was a bronze ochre floral dress that was slightly fitted at the waist and accented with a subtle trim of soft ruffles along the shoulder and waistline. A bold green printed romper was cropped above the ankle and festooned with shiny gold buttons down the chest.
Kiely also experimented with contrasting prints, pairing a peplum waist blouse in her Lily Pad print with a flower-print skirt that hit below the knee. Texture and embellishment were important this season, too: A smock dress with bell sleeves had ribbon embroideries across the chest. Kiely worked with a rich palette of bronze

Peter Jensen RTW Spring 2018

Peter Jensen picked up where he left off last season, taking his cue from the late American actress Sandy Dennis’ style.
“She’s really chic,” said Jensen. “When you see the films, she stands out as being very chic and modern even though they’re old films of the Sixties and Seventies.”
His playfully quirky range echoed the eccentric charm of the “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” star. Jensen harked back to the Sixties and early Seventies silhouettes with his colorful collection that was filled with feminine dresses and pared-back separates with whimsical prints.
Jensen experimented with treatments such as an over-dyed and over-washed calico – which he called an underrated fabric – for a roomy shift dress in lilac or a cool black boiler suit.
An image of Dennis’ hands was translated into a graphic print that appeared on a ladylike sleeveless dress with a rounded cutout at the back. The designer also referenced his muse’s love of felines – Dennis once owned 37 cats – with a hand-drawn cat print on a three–quarter sleeve, knee–length dress and skirt.
Sixties references came on color-block shift dresses, sweatshirts and a skirt that was paired with a boldly-hued, slightly oversized knit sweater. Elsewhere, the designer’s signature bunny motif

Marc Jacobs RTW Spring 2018

He’s not leaving. Period. End of story.
An exasperated Marc Jacobs made that declaration — again — when asked if his finale music carried a message of goodbye. After his models walked the perimeter of the cavernous Park Avenue Armory in total silence, they reemerged to a piece from Alfredo Catalani’s opera “La Wally.” In part, it translates, “Ah, well, then! I shall go far away.”
“It’s not ironic, it’s not sarcastic, it’s not a goodbye,” Jacobs said of the musical choice. “It’s from the cult classic Eighties French New Wave film ‘Diva,’ which I love. I don’t know how to win. I’m not that versed in opera. I’m much more versed in film. Steve Mackey, who does the music, and I thought it was a beautiful piece of music. I didn’t even know the translation. Sometimes an aria is just an aria.”
And sometimes, a fashion show delivers major fashion. “There’s tons [going on],” Jacobs said. Indeed. He insisted that the collection had no deep, intellectual or conceptual springboard. It clearly progressed from last season’s ode to hip-hop style. “We’re calling the whole thing ‘Somewhere’ — from Sofia [Coppola]’s movie,” he said. “But also, last season was all about this urban landscape,

Calvin Luo RTW Spring 2018

Calvin Luo may be young, but his work shows a sophistication beyond his years.
The recent Parsons School of Design graduate was the youngest designer to present in the official New York Fashion Week calendar when he unveiled his collection three seasons ago; for his fourth outing, Luo continued to refine what had created buzz in the past.
Before the official runway show began, Luo presented male and female models in super lightweight pajamalike outfits made from a temperature-sensing heating fabric Luo created that changes color when heated.
But the real draw was his distinct take on what he described as a “skater-girl-turned-whimsy-woman.” The story started with some sporty references such as hoodies, tanks, cropped tops and skirts with drawstring details and finished with elaborate knit dresses and a strapless blue metallic evening gown.
The line continued to showcase his propensity for deconstruction, especially as it applied to sleeves.
Although his past collections have explored more gender-fluid looks, this season showed more delineation between the sexes, at least as far as the women’s looks were concerned.
Dresses were flirty and feminine with ruching and ruffles and tulle insets on pencil skirts. But the guys’ looks were more “asexual,” Luo said, such as tan shorts with smocking

Anna Sui Spring 2018

We all shine on. Or at least Anna Sui wants us to.
The collection Sui showed Monday night harkened back to a time not too long ago but seemingly ancient, a time when the youth movement du jour was about spreading love and seeking community, and everyone did it in pretty piled-on prints. Oh, the good old days.
“It’s a be-in,” Sui said backstage after the show. “We all have to be there because I think we need to focus on the beautiful, the positive — glitter and sparkles and being happy.”
The show opened in the dark with Sui’s models taking a stroll, a coed, cross-generational counterculture (remember counterculture?) bohemian brigade, including Kirsten Owen and Maggie Rizer (hardly ready for elder Earth Mother status, but they made the point) and several children. It closed with a girl with kaleidoscope eyes on the soundtrack and a girl with a missing platform shoe on the runway, her sister helping her negotiate the finale walk. (You’ve seen it by now: Bella supporting Gigi.) Two displays of what family can mean, one scripted construct, one accidental-yet-perfect punctuation.
Between the two: A Seventies fashion lovefest. Showing against a big here-comes-the-sun medallion, Sui drew from an overdrawn well and

Simon Miller RTW Spring 2018

The Congolese rainforest — vibrant with the colors of flowers, plants and animals — inspired Simon Miller’s spring collection. Vivid hues, including pink, yellow and blue, gave an energetic, positive vibe to the clothes, which were cut mostly in loose, comfortable silhouettes. Natural fabrics, such as organic cotton and linen, enhanced the nature-friendly appeal of the lineup, which was presented in a venue filled with flowers and tropical plants. Wide-legged pants were matched with roomy, cropped sweaters and elongated, softly tailored jackets. The image of an abstract bird was printed on fluid silk separates, while a pretty yellow suit was crafted from lamb leather with a paperlike effect. Creative directors Chelsea Hansford and Daniel Corrigan were also influenced by the works of abstract painter Leonardo Urso; he inspired the paint-rolled denim pants trimmed with a plissé insert. Introducing a more urban, sleeker vibe into the collection, the designers delivered patent-leather skinny pants and a dark indigo bustier top worn with matching pants for a touch of feminine sensuality.

Monse RTW Spring 2018

It’s still early in the week and the season in general, but there’s a micro trend of patriotism coming out of New York Fashion Week. After several news cycles fueled by headlines about New York’s top fashion talent defecting for a brighter City of Light, those who have stayed put are using their runways to show their American pride. Monse’s Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim are happy to be here. “We love this country. It’s the only reason we’ve been able to succeed this much,” said Garcia during a preview. “We’re celebrating showing here.”
They littered the collection with peppy stars and stripes and red-white-and-blue, but it wasn’t a Fourth of July parade. The broader theme was back-to-school, with collegiate sport references offering a solid, steady lens through which to filter updates on the brand’s signatures and hit on retailer-baiting trends. Chiced-up track pants, riffs on varsity jackets and twisted Oxford shirting abounded.
All three of those items hit critical mass trend-wise a while ago. Making them feel new was surely a challenge, yet Garcia and Kim pulled the looks into their world, stamping them with what has become a very strong house aesthetic. A classic striped men’s shirt was turned backwards

Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2018

Genuine provocation — there’s not enough of it in fashion. Raf Simons is determined to show us what we’ve been missing. He arrived at 205 West 39th Street, Calvin Klein’s longtime address and recently renamed, at his behest, Collection label, determined to tackle large questions of cultural resonance via the fashion genre. After two collections, it’s clear that Simons’ approach is to mine broad-stroke aspects of American culture, whether out of respect, curiosity or a yen to telegraph to skeptics (if any exist), his appropriateness for the creative helm of one of the great bastions of American fashion.
On Thursday night, the room was abuzz. Guests milled about, some in states of anticipatory glee, others in confused pursuit of their seats, as numerous tablet-wielding staffers had no clue about the room’s alphabetical arrangement. “Do you know where D is?” one guest asked a third floor guide. The answer: “No, but I’ll try to find it.”
Hence, a prolonged stroll under Sterling Ruby’s latest collaboration with Simons, the rafters now hung with colorful, exaggerated pompoms and banners representing the cheery high school life, but with grim sightings — an axe here or there — interrupting the frivolity.

Tom Ford Spring 2018 RTW

F—ing Fabulous. To Tom Ford, it’s more than a naughty-kitsch fragrance name intended to titillate, one that triggered an Instagram frenzy when bottles of the juice arrived with his show invitations. To Ford, f—ing fabulous is a standard of living. Once upon a time, he aspired to it. Now, he’ll settle for nothing less.
Ford’s fashion show on Wednesday night, the first mega event of the spring 2018 season, dripped in FF. The venue, an enclave of allure installed into the Park Avenue Armory, featured a tall white enclosure bathed in purple light and spritzed with you-know-what scent, the floor an expanse of pale carpeting, wantonly unprotected, no cheesy plastic pre-show covering here. It recalled the Tom Ford of yore, particularly his early Yves Saint Laurent shows. To make the cavernous, utilitarian Armory reference the Rodin Museum — no easy feat. As for the guest list — high wattage, filled with actors, artists, actors, influencers, a bevy of cross-generational models and Kim Kardashian.

Tse is a quiet collection at its core. No matter how advanced the stitchwork gets, the mood remains one of calm and comfortable chic. So it was for spring, for which the design team infused the crisp range of white, putty, red and black knits and wovens with textural techniques inspired by the work of Ghanian artist El Anatsui, who is known for his suspended paintings. This played well on a black dress and top constructed from a mesh of woven circles and a soft nude top done in tacked-together squares. Otherwise, the collection was filled with breezy, sporty pieces that are probably as comfy as sweats but nowhere near as casual.

DDUOGOFF Men’s Spring 2018

Daniel DuGoff used a trip to Taipei with the CFDA Incubator program to form the foundation of his men’s collection.
DuGoff, who studied architecture before working for Patrik Ervell and Marc Jacobs, said on the trip he was able to experience the urban grit of Taipei along with the tropical landscapes of Yangmingshan National Park, which is located outside of the city.
DuGoff used those contrasts to present a minimal lineup of classic men’s sportswear energized with color — green, mustard, white and navy — and prints including plaid, an abstracted window pane and a hazy leaf print.
High notes from the collection included the short shorts, which mimicked the silhouette of a swim trunk but were made from shirting material, the Fifties-inspired knot polos with embroidery on the chest, and the hooded jacket made from cotton and nylon grosgrain.
DuGoff has said his primary goal is to produce easy clothes that men will want to wear on an everyday basis. He accomplished that goal with this lineup and also introduced some new pieces into his customer’s wardrobe.

Parke & Ronen Men’s Spring 2018

Young fashion brands can learn a thing or two from Parke & Ronen.
The men’s swimwear label celebrated its 20th anniversary on Wednesday with a heartwarming — and mildly nostalgic — runway show that showcased exactly how sticking to one aesthetic — and nailing it — can lead to a long life.
The brand seamlessly mixed some of its greatest hits with an assortment of new styles of swimsuits and casual sportswear to the strains of John Denver’s “Rocky Mountain High,” the inspiration for the season for designers Parke Lutter and Ronen Jehezkel.
“We’ve done beaches and pools, now it’s off to the lake,” said Lutter.
The soft colors, wildflowers and pristine backdrop of the mountains were showcased in a variety of lightweight jackets, mesh tanks and drawstring linen pants.
The casual sportswear component of the collection also worked well in cotton twill shorts, breezy chambray shirts and knit tops. Lutter pointed to the mint double-face linen trouser and the lamb-suede camp shorts as his favorites.
And then there was the swimwear.
Everything from tiny bikinis to the two-, three-, four- and even five-inch trunks in a variety of prints and patterns turned heads.

Matiere Men’s Spring 2018

For its first runway show, Matiere took a step in the right direction this season with a spring collection titled “Reflections.”
“It was about taking a step back and reflecting on what was working for us as an emerging brand and what the market wants,” said the designer Scot Shandalove backstage.
Bringing a bit of shape into the mix, he offered up more voluminous silhouettes this time around, in elongated shorts, wide-tailored bombers and an anorak with a dropped shoulder for a roomier fit — all of which succeeded in creating a cleaner look.
True mavens when it comes to fabric selection, the lineup consisted of a combination of true athleti wear and luxe loungewear by utilizing Italian reflective fabrics in outerwear, crinkled water-resistant elongated jackets and a Japanese high-shine, short-sleeved anorak with paneled technical mesh.
By offering up a true California vibe, Matiere is really propelling the ethos of the brand to a cool yet functional tech lounge-y aesthetic.

Deveaux Men’s Spring 2018

“Nothingness is just as important as things that are there,” Andrea Tsao, one-third of Deveaux’s design team, posited ahead of the brand’s fourth outing. That philosophical outlook was taken from Japanese architect Tadao Ando’s design M.O. — whose use of muted palettes, clean lines and leanings toward raw materials parallel design elements in the Deveaux world.
The tether to Ando was light, bearing conceptual details that made minimal silhouettes feel special. An “architect” car coat that opened the show, for example, played with the idea of spacing and exposure, featuring pockets that wove in and out. “What you see and what you can’t see is a large part of his architecture,” Tsao continued. Other details like pockets-within-pockets and belts weaving through cutouts teetered on modern and luxurious design.
The overall tone was more relaxed than previous efforts, featuring an experimentation with oversize fits and vintage sensibilities. Roomy, A-line coats in black washed nylon and glen plaid erred on the side of sophistication, while color-blocked knitwear, khaki-and-white top combos, and chunky sneakers were retro and retail-friendly propositions.
The team also showed a few women’s looks, which showcased architectural references with more freedom. Standouts included a sharp tailored blazer and offbeat olive cotton shirt. It

Landlord Men’s Spring 2018

Ryohei Kawanishi is drawn to cultural melting pots.
Before the Japanese designer moved to Harlem, he spent seven years living in Dalston, a neighborhood in East London that was known for its Caribbean community. Kawanishi said the main premise for Landlord is to take what he sees on the streets and translate it into fashion. This is a strategy practiced by many, if not most, designers, but there’s something different about his interpretations, which err on the side of homage rather than appropriation.
Reggae formed the foundation for his spring collection, and sometimes the references were quite literal but still clever. One sweater read “Bob” — as in Bob Marley — and other oversize knits were covered with “Jerk Chicken” and marijuana leaves. Then there was the Rastafarian-influenced color palette of red, green and yellow, which looked particularly fresh on color-blocked pants and jackets made from nylon.
Kawanishi said visual references from street markets also crept into the collection. This was evident with the camo prints placed to obscure a faux Burberry plaid along with the leather sneakers and sandals worn without socks. Other highlights included a satin parka, a matte leather jacket and the cuffed, baggy denim.

Willy Chavarria Men’s Spring 2018

Willy Chavarria used The Eagle, New York’s iconic leather bar, as a setting for his spring collection. But he juxtaposed the gritty gay subculture scene by filling the bar with fragrant flowers and parking two pristine Lowrider cars outside the venue.
“I wanted to show two cultures that don’t co-exist,” Chavarria said.
The oversize leather outerwear pieces, baggy pants and caps had a clear Robert Mapplethorpe influence, while striped polos and slouchy cropped khakis had a strong Chollo vibe.
Plays on renowned American logos such as Coors and Marlboro were reinvented as graphic adornments on sweatshirts, shorts and pants. The show pieces were hand-painted by Chavarria’s friend and collaborator, Brian Calvin. The one-of-a-kind-pieces will be sold at galleries as artwork and turned into prints for the commercial collection.
Other graphic slogans included “Silence Still Equals Death,” a play on the AIDS-related mantra from the Eighties. “That now applies to all things in these highly political times,” he said.

Thorsun Men’s Spring 2018

George Sotelo’s spring collection for Thorsun reflected a recent trip he took to Bali, mashed together with his Mexican heritage, which served as his primary inspiration over the past three seasons.
On 100 percent recycled French polyester for his men’s offering and Italian polyester for the women’s, he splashed playful Indonesian-inspired graphics including a toucan print and tropical florals.
He also revisited more familiar territory — geometric fish prints and abstract paisley.
The brand’s women’s range has been expanded this season, spanning bikinis and one-pieces to long-sleeve rash guards.
Sotelo revealed that while he’s already begun designing some T-shirts to complement his men’s swimwear, “I’m going full-on ready-to-wear for next season.” He said the line will start out as men’s only and will be centered around tops that work well with the bathing suits, such as sport shirts, sweaters and a larger assortment of T-shirts.

Dim Mak Men’s Spring 2018

Steve Aoki opted to show his men’s wear line, Dim Mak, a few days after the official New York Fashion Week: Men’s schedule, which was probably a smart idea given his elaborate vision.
Last season, Aoki installed a skate park inside Skylight Clarkson Sq and Mangchi, a self-described “hammer” band, performed a spirited set as actual skaters, who wore the collection, dropped in and out of two half pipes.
This season Aoki, a DJ who also owns Dim Mak Records, held a presentation before shutting down a New York block to hold a runway show and concert that was produced and presented by the Build Series. The show, which featured performances from Ayo & Teo, Bok Nero, Ma$ e and Sonny Digital, also commemorated the release of his new album, Kolony, which is out on July 21.
“I like to combine both worlds,” said Aoki, who started his Dim Mak record label in 1996. “People know me as a DJ first so it just made sense to do this type of event.”
Aoki’s collection was titled Paradise Found, which according to Aoki is indicative of the current climate. “People are looking for paradise amid chaos,” he said. He imbued this idea throughout the assortment, which consisted of military staples — bomber and

Rachel Zoe Sets ‘Pop-In Shop’ in East Hampton, Spring 2018 Fashion Show in L.A.

Next month, Rachel Zoe will dip her toes into the warming waters of the seasonal East Coast retail scene with her first-ever East Hampton “pop-in shop” at What Goes Around Comes Around. The shop will feature a selection of Rachel Zoe Collection’s pre-fall and fall pieces styled with her picks from WGACA’s vintage selection.
Zoe will launch the shop — open from August 5 to 13 — with a VIP shopping night on August 4. “I wasn’t ready to open up my own pop-up shop for the whole summer, but I have known the guys at What Goes Around Comes Around for 20 years, so we thought, ‘Why not do a pop-in shop for part of the season?’ It’s a great way to have a presence in a place that’s like my second home. In August you’re still wearing sundresses but you’re also in a fall state of mind, so why not mix in some chunky knits, statement outerwear and boots? I love mixing my own new pieces with vintage, and my customer dresses that way too,” she said.
The pop-in will showcase light, airy silhouettes and statement staples such as printed silk tops, dresses, faux furs and jumpsuits that can work from the

Ovadia & Sons Men’s Spring 2018

Continuing the “narrative of last season,” Ovadia & Sons once again fueled a sporty lifestyle in its spring collection.
The trend-conscious lineup showcased an array of silk souvenir jackets, retro Fifties rayon shirts and geeky-cool pastel-colored suits.
“All the cool kids in school wore baseball jackets, but we couldn’t afford one,” said Shimon Ovadia, who designs the line with his brother Ariel. “So we’re doing them now.”
The less-predictable print that appeared on a coach’s jacket, a pop-over and a track pant was the first peek at a capsule with Interesni Kazki artists from the Ukraine that the twins discovered in their travels.
Their affinity for animal prints worked hand-in-hand with the tribal references they used to update their signature tracksuits.
The jewel tones employed in key pieces such as car coats and track pants added a sense of sophistication to the casual lineup. And the use of cross-body bags and bucket hats served as a reminder that the Ovadia brothers have once again embraced the trends of the season and brought their own twist to it.

Escada Spring 2018

Escada kept the same inspirations the design team chose for resort for its spring collection: Isabella Rossellini for the main line and Sofia Coppola for Escada Sport.
References to either muse were difficult to spot in the actual clothes, which took on extremely bold color and color-blocking in the mainline and generic denim and sporty parka/windbreakers in the sport line.
The main collection’s attempt to modernize with a focus on classic separates silhouettes was compromised by some unwieldy color combinations, for example, a magenta blazer over a cobalt blue top and white pants, all with a satiny sheen. There was an orange story, followed by a mint-green-dominated delivery. The best things were the simplest: a white shirtdress with tiny jeweled embroidery and a striped shirtdress with nice movement.

Palmiers du Mal Men’s Spring 2018

“The young pope goes on safari” read the show notes from Wednesday night’s presentation for Palmiers du Mal’s spring collection.
Designer Shane Fonner has quite the love for luxe loungewear and, in what seems a progression from last season, there were numerous new shapes in the lineup such as high-waisted sweatpants, zebra-printed caftans and even a dalmatian-print robe with a hint of floral for contrast.
“I like to think of this collection as gender-agnostic,” said Fonner backstage, pointing to  many of the styles that were a bit decadent with a hint of a rock star vibe.
Despite showing the collection at the Rose Bar at the Gramercy Park Hotel — a space adorned with images of photographer David Lachapelle on its walls — the chic location was better suited for a party than a fashion presentation as seeing the clothes up close proved quite challenging.

Bode Men’s Spring 2018

As a child, Emily Bode spent her summers at her uncle’s house in the south of France. She slept in his grenier, which means attic in French, where she was surrounded by bedsheets, bath towels and antique linens.
“This collection is about my uncle’s generational relationship with the attic and what the attic means to me as a space,” Bode said. “It’s a place to take in memories of yesteryear and reflect on one’s mortality.”
Bode, who graduated from Parsons before launching her men’s wear line in 2016, re-created that sentimental space for her presentation. Models lounged around wood-frame beds while the scent of lavender lingered throughout the room.
Quilting was the focus of her previous collection, but this season she concentrated on florals and stripes. Models wore floral printed raincoats, terrycloth jackets and striped sleep pants. Shirts were made from cotton Quaker lace and French linens. Other highlights included the floral tapestry jackets — specifically the mustard style decorated with a double row of buttons.
The overall effect was inviting. Bode has a clear talent for mixing textures, colors and textiles in an intriguing way. She’s also adept at rendering fabrics typically associated with the word “antique” to appear modern and strong. We

Luar Men’s Spring 2018

Young American designers have strong opinions about what corporate America stands for, and designer Raul Lopez is among them.
“I was inspired by everything going on in the world right now,” he said, pointing to “financiers, entrepreneurs and moguls” as his starting point.
Turning dress codes on their heads was the main message here as a traditional bankers’ pinstripe suit was deconstructed, stripped of its sleeves and the fabric converted into an oversize zip-up leg warmer.
Other “convertible” pieces included cropped T-shirts with round cutouts, and ties sewn together to make a layered skirt.
His affinity for deconstruction came as a result of growing up with an architect father, he said.
This gender-fluid offering also included an array of long, medium and short skirts, together with a summery white dress with his brand’s Holy Trinity logo as the main graphic embellishment.
While there’s no realistic retail offering, Lopez at least gets marks for pushing the boundaries of men’s wear.

Represent Men’s Spring 2018

Siblings George and Mike Heaton continued in the vein of their debut fall collection, highlighting the most energetic aspects of British punk subculture with a streetwear bent. They titled their spring collection “Wide Awake,” which took its name from a propaganda poster by Winston Churchill during World War II, and splashed the slogan across sporty sweaters.
The siblings have tended to use British victories in their prints and embroideries, proclaiming the brand’s “Made in Britain” stamp along with prints of the Union Jack. Streetwear obviously isn’t a new concept, but a British undertone in the category is something novel that has attracted American consumers.
Key this season were lightweight parkas, velour tracksuits, floral printed silk shirts and a general sense of youthful subversion. There was also an athletic thread in matching pinstripe mesh sets, sweatshirt fabrics and joggers paired with loose tops. If these first two collections are any indication of the brand’s trajectory, expect high-energy, unapologetically boastful British fashion for the seasons ahead.

Raun Larose Men’s Spring 2018

Raun Larose mined Eighties tech start-ups for his spring collection, which he titled “System Down.” He worked with Jose Cunha, a Portuguese artist, on the graphics, which he said were modeled after old error messages on IBM computers, and reworked a few silhouettes from the opulent decade.
Models wore wide-leg, pleated pants and high-waisted shorts. Larose implemented shine into the collection with a PVC jacket and a parka made from a tech fabric. The designer also deconstructed the suit by adding volume to the trousers and replacing a button closure with a tie waist. New to the lineup were prints, which Larose said were influenced by the Olympics. Off-the-shoulder knits lent and unconventional feel to classic shirt collars.
Larose gets credit for pushing forward an avant-garde message and conjuring up new silhouettes.

General Idea Men’s Spring 2018

As in seasons past, designer Bumsuk Choi steered clear of being a trend-driven brand, instead steering General Idea to create its own path. And Thursday’s spring show was no different.
Based on the notions of the hippie culture from the Sixties and Seventies, the lineup consisted of silky shirts with bandana prints, ethnic embroideries on the cuffs of shirts and denim, and racing stripes on the sides of trousers.
“As a society we have been accustomed to not be able to live without our phones,” said Choi backstage, shortly after sending out oversize logos shouting “No post” on the backs and front of shirts.
A nice surprise, color was a huge message this season, with General Idea offering up bright reds, yellows and blues in a variety of looks, while staying away from white and black that has become predictable.
With this solid effort, Choi gets credit for making us put down our phones and transporting us to his modern hippie universe.

Theory Men’s Spring 2018

Like many transplanted Europeans, new Theory designer Martin Andersson, previously of Cos, couldn’t resist the allure of Americana.
“I concentrated on the great American classics rooted in uniforms, sports and workwear,” Andersson said at the brand’s rooftop presentation, with Manhattan’s skyline as a backdrop.
The sporty pieces included sweatpants, hoodies and bombers in cotton, technical nylon and paper-thin leather. The workwear influences were clear on updated Dickies-inspired pants with a single pleat, as well as a “geeky” take on a railroad-stripe suit.
Punches of yellow and orange gave the mostly neutral lineup jolts of energy.
The tailored clothing offering had a subtle Fifties feel with the addition of the Gansevoort silhouette, a softly constructed suit with a natural shoulder and narrow pants. The new style came in a travel jersey and a technical nylon and polyester seersucker. Ultrathin anoraks worn under blazers enhanced the technical yet modern urban feel.
The lineup might come across as unexciting at first, but after a closer look, the minimalist approach felt like a perfect palate-cleanser.

Sanchez-Kane Men’s Spring 2018

On the “about” section of her web site, Barbara Sanchez-Kane defines her label as a “Mexican clothing brand curated by emotional chaos.”
What that means is that instead of sourcing ideas from an artist, location or concept, she lets her feelings lead the way.
This season Sanchez-Kane, who launched her brand in 2015 after working for Bernhard Willhelm, parsed the sensations that come along with stereotypes and societal standards, which she mainly portrayed through constrictive design details.

Sanchez-Kane, who is known for her tailored pieces, used the curls in a pinwheel, her favorite toy as a child, as appendages on blazers, denim jackets and pants. These curls, which were buttoned to garments, sometimes connected pieces of a suit or wrapped around the looks to relay the idea of restriction. Sanchez-Kane also utilized ties, straps and metal wire — one piece sat stiffly on a model like a T-shirt — to underscore this message.

According to Sanchez-Kane, the restrictions created by social norms lead to hiding one’s feelings and this translated to pieces that were stuffed with fabric or pants that were dotted with three-dimensional boxes. She incorporated messages from her journal entries onto pieces — one T-shirt read “Freelance Lover” — along with Mexican

Raf Simons Men’s Spring 2018

Blade Runner came to life under the Manhattan Bridge Tuesday night courtesy of Raf Simons.
The designer created his own version of the iconic film by taking over an alley in Chinatown, complete with the overwhelming smell of fish wafting through the air and the ear-numbing rumble of subways overhead.
Simons continued his long-standing collaboration with British graphic artist Peter Saville who said the designer had requested access to his archives while preparing for the show. Simons utilized vintage Joy Division and New Order album covers as graphic details on both the set and on several of the garments including sliced-open sweatshirts and graphic Ts.
The opening look – a slouchy black rubber trenchcoat paired with matching rain boots, gardening hat and see-through umbrella with glow-in-the-dark shaft – set the tone for the cinematic collection.
“There were a lot of things that go back to my early days – why we started doing the things we did,” Simons said. “There were strong music references from the past juxtapositioned and taken out of context. It was about movies, “Blade Runner,” it’s about cultures sliding together, Asian culture, cultures of the West. There was more of a new wave punk attitude.”

Private Policy Men’s Spring 2018

Private Policy turned west for its spring lineup.
“The idea behind the collection is a view of America through foreigners’ eye, together with what the real America is,” said Haoran Li, who designs the collection with Siying Qu.
These two ideas translated into a playful collection full of Western references including Navajo prints in boxy jackets, matching shorts and retro Fifties shirts. Bolo ties and cowboy boots added yet another heritage touch. The phrase “Thank You,” that appears on plastic deli bags around the country, was transformed into an oversize top coat, a nod to the designers’ “real America.”
Private Policy’s proclivity to add a playful sexual element was apparent in the use of harness details in fitted pants, silver rings in the back of jackets and belts with garter straps.
Although Western references are not new in men’s wear, Private Policy’s adventurous version offered a unique and fresh perspective.

Todd Snyder Men’s Spring 2018

Todd Snyder offered a “melting pot of fashion” in his spring collection, drawing references from around the world — Morocco, France and his own Iowa backyard.
“It’s a mish-mash of different looks,” he said backstage before his show for New York Fashion Week: Men’s on Monday night. “Active, military, sartorial.” Even his father’s propensity to wear black socks with shorts — “which always annoyed me, but now I’m doing it, too” — made an appearance.
In a show that featured a musical performance from Lewis Del Mar, those eclectic references were visible in a suit fashioned after an old French burlap coffee-bean bag, Marrakech-inspired multistripes in linen bomber jackets and a Mexican Baja white and olive hoodie.
But the big news came from a radical change in the silhouette. From oversize pleated pants, shorts and Japanese selvage jeans to softly constructed boxy-cut double-breasted suits, “the pants are much baggier,” he said. “And there are pleats everywhere. The proportion has changed a lot.”
The designer also showcased his long-standing collaboration with Champion by “resurrecting a few classics,” such as a sweater with a diagonal color-blocked design and logo T-shirts worn under blazers and top coats.
In past seasons, Snyder has been playing it safe, but with

13 Bonaparte Men’s Spring 2018

David Sarfati keeps growing his workwear-tinged male wardrobe in an organic fashion. For this, 13 Bonaparte’s 11th season, the designer injected novelty in numerous ways while keeping true to his philosophy that all of his label’s pieces can be mixed and matched, and remain anchored to a permanent, seasonless catalogue that is available year-round.
For this versatile collection, Sarfati created trousers with big pleats in poplin; introduced stripes in wafer-thin linen fabric and a grenadine hue, and fashioned wider, longer shorts.
In tandem with the opening of 13 Bonaparte’s Los Angeles boutique in August, the brand will launch a dedicated site for e-commerce in the U.S. Category-wise, after branching out in denim and women’s wear, kids’ clothes are on the horizon, even as early as next year, Sarfati revealed.

Undercover Men’s Spring 2018

Music influences are a given in Undercover’s collections and this season, for his collection titled “Spiritual Noise,” Jun Takahashi went all out, inventing his Undercover Records label with a portfolio of fictitious bands (think Brain Castle and their album “Not Waving,” and The Wet Dreams).
And there was the merch to match. Nodding to subculture musical genres including rockabilly and the New Romantics, as well as the railway outfits popular with rebel youth in Eighties Japan, the designer put his design stamp and twists on checked shirts, technical anoraks, band T-shirts, scarves with patches and giant colored nylon trenches that had rainy Glastonbury written all over them.
The designer also presented a hook-up with iconic Japanese brand Cream Soda, founded in the late Sixties by the late Masayuki Yamazaki, a pioneer of rockabilly, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The collaboration is based around a stylized animal print that played out on shirts and footwear.
The collection’s accessories were equally fun, offering colored headbands, logo slides by Hayn, train driver hats by Kijima Takayuki, and necklaces with functioning itsy-bitsy penknives.

Men’s Spring 2018: The Paris Medals Race

Paris spent the weekend in dual celebrations. On Saturday the city’s streets were filled with floats and joyous crowds for the Gay Pride March, while that day and Friday saw events all over town to promote the City of Light’s bid for the 2024 Olympics (although snarling traffic to do so perhaps wasn’t the best way to win over the International Olympic Committee).
Here WWD ranks the men’s shows based on how they fared in their Olympian goal: To win a medal. But, designers please remember Baron de Coubertin’s creed: “The most important thing…is not to win, but to take part….The essential thing is not to have conquered, but to have fought well.”
And while Olympians might have to wait four years for another shot at a medal, you — the lucky designers and fashion pack — only have six months until next men’s season. Let the games begin.

Yang Li Men’s Spring 2018

Villains have the best taste in clothes. “Their taste level is perversely good,” Yang Li said.
While the good guys are busy saving the innocent, Travis, Li’s corrupt cop and muse of the season, spends his bribe money on fine Italian wools.
While there were no specific film references in the collection, there were strains of Harvey Keitel’s Bad Lieutenant, Gary Oldman in “Leon the Professional,” Javier Bardem’s agent-turned-villain in “Skyfall” and even Brad Pitt’s character in the 1995 film “Seven.”
Li puts equal care in finishing and unfinishing his garments. His rough hems could be found around the edges of knife slashes on a blazer. “Communicating attitude through cut or form is something I like to work with, rather than three sleeves or a new kind of pocket,” he explained pointing out a classic double face on a tuxedo, cut to make it look like a holster; crisp, meticulously pressed cottons, stitched to permanently hold the crease on a police shirt; a formal shirt with ladder stitching, almost a jour de Venise perforation, mimicking the uniform braids. KTC, the performance apparel manufacturer, spliced the same perforation into bomber jackets.
And if Travis had a female colleague just as bad as him, a tight

Front Row at Berluti Men’s Spring 2018

INNER CIRCLE: Heading the Haider Ackermann fan club at the Berluti show on Friday, held in the courtyard of the Monnaie de Paris, was Olga Berluti. Mingling with guests before the show, Berluti said she was very touched by the changes afoot in the brand she helmed for decades.
“Haider is a true artist in my opinion, and he understands the spirituality of Berluti, the soul of our clientele,” she said. “In my mind, the emotion is linked to so much youth at Berluti, to knowing that it has, without changing soul, without changing spirit, federated a youth that didn’t exist previously.”
French actor and director Jalil Lespert was enjoying the fresh air, both in terms of the courtyard and Ackermann’s arrival at the luxury house. “Being outside is great, and I loved Haider’s first Berluti collection. I really like the brand, many of my friends wear their shoes and it can quickly give that ‘Enarque’ look,” he said referring to the National School of Administration, or ENA, a French “grande école” created in the Forties to democratize access to the senior civil service. “But with this wind of renewal sweeping through, I am really curious to see it develop.”
“I’d love to

G-Star Raw Research III Men’s Spring 2018

Aitor Throup and his team deconstructed denim to explore its possibilities for the third experimental G-Star Raw Research collection, which offered designs for men and, for the first time, women as well.
Three distinct sections — raw ecru denim, indigo and brightly dyed fabrics — explored new ways of looking at and rebuilding the casual staple, integrating utilitarian and military influences.
A new jeans style, the Spiraq, was built from a single piece of denim wrapped around the leg, giving an ergonomic shape, and was particularly appealing in a wide-leg, cropped style for women. Jackets and coats featured multiple outsize pockets held on with Velcro, and pants and a skirt built parachute details into their structure.
Throup said he had wanted to look at denim in a new way by pulling the production process apart and avoiding mental shortcuts. “Industrialization leads to standardization,” he said. “By deconstructing it you learn to isolate those elements and bring our new possibilities for denim.”
Each piece in the collection is available in 15 bright colors as well as ecru and indigo, and the plan is for different retailers (the Raw Research collection is sold in select multibrand stores) to stock both basic shades and a selection of

Lucien Pellat-Finet Spring 2018

California in the Nineties — complete with a distinct acid trip — was the vibe for Lucien Pellat-Finet’s spring collection for men and women, titled “Happy Days.” Scantily clad models of both genders smooched down the runway in their slides and beachwear, clad in an array of Day-Glo layers.
Bright, skimpy swimwear, some in crushed velvet or a usurped leopard print, was paired with black-and-white elastic-waist sporty pants, shorts and skirts, their side stripes adorned with the label’s cannabis leaf motif, or with colorful printed ginghams for the girls.
A weed and lizard print on shirts added to the tropical feel, contrasting with varsity jackets and intarsia sweaters. White tiger-patterned jogging pants and a Brazilian flag wrap worn like a beach towel, meanwhile, were among the more original uses made of Pellat-Finet’s signature cashmere, which was juxtaposed with Japanese technical fabrics with a lighter, more sporty feel.

Giorgio Armani Men’s Spring 2018

There were no show notes, just one line projected onto the screen above the runway: Made in Armani.
The phrase captured the spirit of the collection, which was signature Giorgio, with a subdued color palette – 50 shades of light gray – and many of the designer’s greatest hits. Carrot trousers, curve-hugging tailored jackets, languid work wear styles, and Far Eastern-inspired silhouettes all took a turn on the runway.
GALLERY: Backstage at Giorgio Armani Men’s Spring 2018
In a season when some of Milan’s biggest names in men’s wear either didn’t take part to opt for co-ed shows in September, or lost their rhythm and wobbled, Armani stuck to what he knows best – and sent it down the runway over and over again. The show opened with a long and elegant feather light coat in watery gray, and ended with a chic lineup of all-white suits, some of them in seersucker, others with two buttons or three buttons, shawl collars or narrow peaked lapels.
In between there was much texture and surface interest – a crinkly coppery fabric for a bomber jacket; shiny gray-white tailored jackets with subtle plaid patterns; a loose jacket with patch pockets and tailored tracksuit bottoms (no sloppy street

Cifonelli Men’s Spring 2018

John Vizzone said he wanted to infuse a relaxed vibe in his sartorial collection for the Cifonelli brand. He chose mainly textured fabrics with a rustic feel which were crafted in comfortable silhouettes of checked and Prince of Wales suits, as well as breezy shirt jackets with applied pockets. Everything was worn with tonal cotton shirts and ties, including the suede bombers and field jackets. The collection also included a capsule of evening suits made in the shimmering silk satin usually used for ties.

Tatras Men’s Spring 2018

Tatras took an imaginative trip  to the desert for summer.
The outerwear specialist developed a functional collection, including safari jackets and field styles with practical pockets crafted from luxurious fabrics, including Italian cotton and Japanese nylon.
The traditional camouflage motif was rendered both in a artsy version, as well as in a techno-jacquard giving a shimmering effect to a front pocket jacket.
For the second season, Tatras also teamed with Lucio Vanotti on a capsule collection. This included men’s and women’s nylon and cotton satin outerwear pieces, cut both in regular and oversized silhouettes, with colorful chevron graphics and zippers inspired by Seventies and Eighties tracksuits.

J.W. Anderson Men’s Spring 2018

Is Jonathan Anderson gunning to become a household name? He’s got a collaboration with Uniqlo this fall, and he dedicated his coveted guest slot at Pitti Uomo to a collection hinged on his simple, personal style — along with the right doses of whimsy and quirk that his brand represents.
Given the show’s romantic setting, in the gardens of the La Pietra villa in the hilltops of Florence — scented with lemon trees, and accompanied by a soundtrack of chirping cicadas — the fantasy-prone designer could have gone all out. Instead he went — dare we say it? — a tad commercial, albeit with his childish touches and playfulness intact.
In the run-up to the show, the London-based designer called his spring effort “the first collection that is a reflection of me, as a personal fantasy of what I would actually wear.”
Among the highlights in the denim-heavy collection were baggy jeans with origami folds, cool updates on the classic perfecto jacket, Pop Art-tinged patchwork sweatshirts and great Aran sweaters with nautical motifs that nodded to the designer’s Northern Irish roots.
Save for a couple of crafty oversize T-shirts and pants, the collection centered on updated men’s wear staples: the biker jacket, bomber, jeans

Gosha Rubchinskiy Men’s Spring 2018

Georgia-born Demna Gvasalia recently told WWD he’s moving on from the underground club scene and the Eastern Bloc aesthetic which had fueled his Vetements shows, one of which opened with his Russian peer Gosha Rubchinskiy storming down the runway in a DHL T-shirt.
By contrast, Rubchinskiy, who staged his spring 2018 show in Saint Petersburg late Friday night, is still very much in the thick of it. He chose the northern city because it was home to the first raves of the post-Soviet era, when kids were eager to connect with the Western world and express themselves through fashion and parties.
Friday’s event started with a rooftop cocktail at Au Pont Rouge, a department store in a historical building that carries brands like Rick Owens, Marni, Alexander Wang and Gosha Rubchinskiy.
The show was staged at a venue called DK Svyazi, used for rock concerts in the late Eighties. Here the driving soundtrack curated by Buttechno approximated a clandestine dance party, while the runway provided the club gear to match: a sweatshirt with the slogan околорейв, which translates to “near the rave;” fluorescent tracksuits; and an oversized Burberry Harrington jacket, part of a collaboration with the British brand, reminiscent of loutish “chav” style.

London Fashion Week Men’s Spring 2018: Ones to Watch

Bodybound
Born and raised in London, Bodybound creative directors Kim Wilkins and Pliny Champion launched their label in 2012.
The duo met in college. Wilkins studied knitwear at Central Saint Martins and graduated in 2005, then moved on to study men’s wear at the Royal College of Art. He completed the program in 2009. Champion took a more varied route, going from studying biology to environmental public relations and photography. He ended up in fashion, graduating from Imperial College London. They have worked for labels including Alexander McQueen, Ermenegildo Zegna, Matthew Williamson, Halston and Mark Fast. The designers, who produce their collections between London and Bali, were selected by Yohji Yamamoto as finalists for the Hyères award in 2012.
Wilkins said their man is someone who “has an appreciation for subversion.” Champion added: “A little irreverence never did anyone any harm.
“We believe in challenging the relationship between utility and luxury,” Champion said. “We’re interested in the modern masculine aesthetic, and create innovative textiles and engineered knitwear for utilitarian silhouettes.”
Wilkins said the due is “always looking to challenge mediocrity. Everyone’s approach to design is unique, the collections reflect our interests. Our process is complicated, but the message is simple.”

Moschino to Show Men’s Spring, Women’s Resort Collections in Los Angeles

MILAN – Moschino said on Wednesday that it will present its spring 2018 men’s collection in Los Angeles. During the runway show, which will take place on June 8 at Hollywood’s Milk Studios, Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott will also unveil the brand’s women’s resort 2018 collection.
Exclaimed Scott, about his decision to return to show in California: “As Los Angeles is where I live, to quote Dorothy: ‘There is no place like home!’”
Last June, the brand had already combined its men’s spring collection with the women’s resort range in a runway show as part of the Made LA lineup, which included a variety of runways shows, parties and events held at downtown Los Angeles’ L.A. Live event space.
Moschino men’s fall 2017 collection, along with the women’s pre-fall 2017 line, was unveiled at a show in Milan last January.
In April, Moschino and Scott hosted an event at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in collaboration with mobile game Candy Crush and streaming video platform Tidal, which live-streamed musical performances from the party, including appearances from Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Yachty.
The party was inspired by the Moschino Candy Crush collaboration on a capsule collection of summer festival items including a limited-edition backpack, for $ 650; an iPhone case,

Alon Livne White Bridal Spring 2018

Alon Livne pared down his typically lavish style for a bridal collection that was subtler, with an old Hollywood glamour inspired by Joan Crawford. “This season it’s much more soft, much for feminine, a little bit old-school,” the designer said in his showroom. “I’m trying to look for something new, fresh, modern, and cleaner.” Still, even softer dresses factored in intricate beading and embroideries.

Christian Siriano Bridal Spring 2018

For his second year of bridal, Christian Siriano introduced a curated mix of whimsy and modernity. After a year of figuring out his clients’ needs and interests, he’s discovered they’re quite vast. For the traditionalist, there were plenty of full-skirted gowns that were light in weight yet heavy on romance. “Brides are still coming back to these dresses season after season because they have to be classic, they have to be timeless in their own way,” the designer said during a private walk-through at his showroom. For the modern minimalist, he had sleek jumpsuits along with separates that could be mixed-and-matched to transition from the ceremony to reception.
In addition to a beaded collar piece that added an elegant touch to any gown, interchangeable skirts and skirt overlays provided that playful transitional element. For example, an overlay could be removed to reveal a tulle skirt underneath or a party dress. “They want to have fun,” he continued. “I’ve noticed they get one night and they want to have costume changes. It’s so interesting the requests we get.” It’s also something that will give retailers a point of difference in their offering — after a year exclusive with Kleinfeld, Siriano is opening

Anthropologie, Dr. Scholl’s Collaborate on Spring Shoes

SHOE SHINE: Anthropologie and Dr. Scholl’s have teamed on a collection of spring shoes.
The three-style range includes wedged sandals and a flat sneaker.
The collection is set to launch April 25 at Anthropologie stores, priced from $ 108 to $ 128.
The firms have been working together on-and-off since 2013.
Said Katie Moore, senior designer for Dr. Scholl’s: “Because of our history of partnership with Anthropologie and our understanding of the styles that have done well for their consumer, this was an easy collaboration. We followed Anthropologie’s lead on material inspiration that aligned with their spring ready to wear. Basically, it was a collaborative effort that started with a selection of styles and materials, which we worked to narrow down to a capsule collection — keeping in mind the consumer and our shared goal to curate a hand-crafted collection that offered a range of options.”

Rachel Roy Dishes on Instant Fashion, L.A. Life and Spring Favorites

Rachel Roy has embraced digital marketing and social media from the start — sometimes landing herself in controversy, which she gracefully manages to shake off — so it’s no surprise she’s made a series of short videos titled “Rachel’s Favorites” at Smashbox in Culver City, Calif., earlier this month, that are set to debut on her site April 1.

A look from Rachel Roy’s spring favorites digital campaign. 

The designer singled out 10 pieces from her spring 2017 campaign, ranging in price from $ 49 to $ 179 retail, and showed her audience how to wear each piece. A blush blazer for $ 179 could be paired with white jeans or a chambray shirtdress, while an off-the-shoulder shredded sweatshirt for $ 79 each provided a more casual option.
“These videos are about why I design, why I feel it’s helpful to have these pieces and what to wear them with. Hopefully, they serve the same purpose as social media, which is not only telling a story but having someone get to know you and what is important to you,” she said of integrating her philanthropic causes into the narrative. While the philanthropy might not match a denim blouse or a pair of jeans, while someone gets behind

Prince Charles’ Tailors, Turnbull & Asser, Kick Off Spring Events in Los Angeles

Turnbull & Asser, the British brand founded in 1885, has dressed celebrated women and men throughout history including Twiggy, Bianca Jagger, Gwyneth Paltrow, Katharine Hepburn, Winston Churchill, Duke Ellington, The Beatles and Sean Connery. The Jermyn Street shirtmaker is probably best known for providing shirts for Prince Charles and Prince William.
The brand’s Bespoke Master Steven Quin, whose official title is Royal Warrant Holder to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, will be coming Stateside this weekend to introduce Yankee customers to the art of bespoke. Quin was last in Los Angeles in November 2016, where he also held client appointments and hosted a stylist dinner. The heritage house once had a shop in Beverly Hills, which closed in 2013, and still has a shop in New York.

Turnbull & Asser Bespoke shirt fabrics. 

Quin’s tour kicks off Friday at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where he will be meeting with customers by appointment and one-on-one to go through the proper fitting and measurement process, and help them choose the best collar, cuff, fabric and pattern to purchase their own one-of-a-kind bespoke shirt.
“The thing about bespoke is that most people have the vision of stiff, traditional cotton shirts made to be worn

5 Skin Care Tips For Making Sure Your Melanin Flourishes This Spring

Spring has officially sprung!

And while many people are thinking about decluttering their space and breaking out sundresses and shorts, they may forget that their skin care regimen could use some spring cleaning, too.

Dermatologist Brooke A. Jackson, M.D., told The Huffington Post a few key things people of color should be doing to ensure our skin, our body’s largest organ, remains glowing and healthy through the seasonal changes. 

From sun protection to getting rid of discoloration, the North Carolina-based doctor has five necessary tips that keep your melanin on fleek this spring and summer.

1. Lighten up your routine

Just as you change your wardrobe, you should change your products. Put away the jars of heavy body butters and creams, and opt for something lighter, Jackson advises.

You start wearing shorts and T-shirts and so you should do the same with your products,” she said. “So generally we recommend in the winter time, you use a big jar of something you actually scoop. And in the spring and the summer, you can go a little bit lighter with something that has a little bit more lotion; like Vaseline Cocoa Radiant is a good choice because you still get the moisturizing effect because it’s got the micro droplets of Vaseline jelly and 100 percent pure cocoa butter in it but it’s not quite as heavy as some other jar products are.” 

 

2. Stay moisturized

We tend to do more activities that can dry out our skin in the summer, like going to the beach or taking a dip in the pool. Jackson told HuffPost that it’s important to moisturize afterward, especially after being exposed to chlorine, which is “very, very drying.”

In addition to lathering up in the morning, she said swimmers should rinse all of the saltwater or pool water off and use lotion. Jackson said this doesn’t just apply to people who swim but people with certain skin conditions as well. 

“Generally, I would say you should moisturize once to twice a day depending on what’s going on with you,” she said. “Certainly, if somebody has drier skin or if they’ve got eczema, they probably need a little bit more moisture and so two full moisturizing processes a day would be great … A lot of people during the spring and summer will probably do just fine with the once coming out of the shower in the morning.”

3. Go with your own glow

Despite the widespread myth, black people do need sunscreen. Jackson said this idea probably stemmed from people of color historically being excluded from certain medical research. 

“Historically we focused on sunburn and a direct correlation between sunburn and skin cancer and so therefore [the message was only] our fair-skinned counterparts get it,” she said. “That message has been loud and clear for many, many years but [there’s an assumption that] people who have darker skin tend not to burn.”

If you’re going to chase the sun, protect yourself, she said.

“I think it’s really important to make sure that we are all sun protecting ourselves because it is not out of the realm of possibilities that skin cancer will develop,” Jackson explained. “So going with your own glow, not actively seeking tanning at the beach or just going out for a run, just making sure that you’re sun protected.”

It also doesn’t hurt that sunscreen can help get rid of discoloration.

4. Remember less is more

One product that locks and seals moisture is better (and more practical) than a cabinet full of products that you hardly use. Jackson said people should pick a product that can do multiple things for you and stick to it. 

“Keep your regimen simple,” she said. 

5. When all else fails, see a doctor

Dermatologists have the answers specific to your skin that your favorite YouTube vlogger may not have. Jackson said many of the skin problems people of color face (discoloration, hyperpigmentation, etc.) can only be healed by getting to the root of the issue.

“I have a lot of patients who try everything under the kitchen sink and then with their girlfriends and everything on the internet and they don’t make an appointment with a dermatologist who can help them out in 10 minutes or less,” Jackson said. “Discoloration is a huge issue with skin of color and we get discoloration from any inflammatory condition, acne, eczema, etc., so again, a reason to make sure that you’re getting the treatment that you need to make sure that that is controlled is because 9 times out of 10, the number one complaint of patients with skin color is I want an even complexion and I want this discoloration to go away.”

Jackson also said since black dermatologists aren’t accessible to everyone, it’s important for people with melanin to ask if their dermatologist knows how to treat darker skin.

Now, go forth and prosper with a fresh glow to your skin.
