    Chanel Cruise 2017

    Yesterday, Chanel showed its Cruise Collection in Havana at the Paseo del Prado, a parfait locale for the French house—the thoroughfare is a link between Cuba and France, and also showcases eight bronze statues of lions, Coco Chanel’s emblem. The show opened with a masculine-feminine jacket over wide-cuffed trousers, flat two-tone shoes, a fabric-belted shirt, and

    Valentino Fall/Winter 2016

    Chez Valentino romance is always in the air and this season took inspiration from ballet and modern dance, which felt like a natural fit for the brand. Valentino Garavani designed costumes for the New York City Ballet four years ago, after all. But Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli debuted the collection with a string of

    Saint Laurent Revisits Couture for Fall/Winter 2016

    Infusing some key pieces of the Yves Saint Laurent archive with just enough of his rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic proved to be a winning formula for Hedi Slimane. While he might have preferred to stick to his own roots since taking over the helm and reinventing YSL as Saint Laurent, embracing a bit of the brand’s history made for a knockout

    Céline Fall/Winter 2016

    In a season where everything is really loud and eccentric, Céline feels like a nice trip to somewhere serene. There are many designers that proclaim season after season to dress the modern woman, but Phoebe Philo really does. Her woman is an intellectual who’s in the know, but doesn’t need to shout it. Easy separates like

    Giambattista Valli Fall/Winter 2016

    Giambattista Valli’s fall collection in Paris, in a few words, was a lesson in ruffles, pleats, and embroidery. His feminine silhouettes are flattering without being overly saccharine, and his knack for marrying different patterns and textures is divine. Even his more boxy pieces, like the oversized suit jacket, hit the leg at just the right spot, and

    Givenchy Fall/Winter 2016

    The genius of Riccardo Tisci is that he is able to please the Millennials with familiar imagery on pieces that are still relatively accessible (i.e. Bambi, a fang-baring dog, and religious iconography on sweatshirts and slip-on sneakers), while attracting the more sophisticated set with pockets deep enough to buy a full look. It’s not easy being cool, commercial,

    Demna Gvasalia’s Buzzy Debut for Balenciaga

    “If Dior is the Watteau of dressmaking…then Balenciaga is fashion’s Picasso. For like that painter…underneath all of his experiments with modern, Balenciaga has a deep respect for tradition and pure classic line,” Cecil Beaton once said of the legendary designer. While having a deep respect for tradition might not exactly be true of Balenciaga’s latest

    Christian Dior Fall/Winter 2016

    Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux’s sophisticated sophomore debut was a study on the shoulder. Though we’ve seen enough off-the-shoulder looks to last a lifetime, the design duo’s translation of the pervasive trend into coats felt completely new and desirable. Furs came folded over and around the shoulders, and over ribbed knits or severe white collared shirts. Even a

    Vetements Fall/Winter 2016

    The way that the fashion world praises and fawns over Vetements, you would think Demna Gvasalia is some kind of god (although his deity status hasn’t yet rivaled Alessandro Michele’s, whose fashion edicts have spread like wildfire). So it’s appropriate that the show was held in the American Church in Paris. Since the anarchist clothes were

    Rick Owens Fall/Winter 2016

    How do you follow up a collection that included live-human backpacks? Rick Owens swung the pendulum in the other direction this season and toned things down. Still, there were giant fluffy puffer blankets worn as coats and capes and fuzzy mohair gowns, plus some models’ emphasized the cocoon notion by wearing their hair in a helmet-like net that covered their faces (yes, this is
