The focus was knitwear, with long slim turtleneck dresses and tops or a wrap dress with a must-have knotted leather belt, but the standout was the fur coat

    Marni Fall 2015

    An army of impeccably-dressed warriors trotted out at Marni this season. But the clean lines, luxurious furs, gabardine, tweeds, and thick wools looked anything but war-ready. Fur accented the shoulder of a trench, snaking around one shoulder, and could be spotted on the sleeves of sleek camel coat that was cinched at the waist. Tunics

    Roberto Cavalli Fall 2015

    It truly wouldn’t be a Cavalli show if there wasn’t a touch of animal print, a hint of sparkle, a smattering of studs, and quite a bit of sex appeal. But for Fall, Roberto Cavalli kept the tone romantic, and he was influenced by the theme of the forthcoming Met Gala, “China: Through The Looking

    Versace Fall 2015

    Va va va Versace! Donatella Versace reflected quite a bit about the brand this season. The show was all about, well, Versace. The show had plenty of its usual sex appeal with high-slits, nearly crotch-high boots, deep-v’s, and extreme cut-outs. But this season, the brand’s Greek insignia was everywhere. Most vividly, it was the pattern for multi-colored skirts, jackets, and pants.
