Sally LaPointe Spring 2016
“I started with the idea of being both an introvert and an extrovert,” Sally LaPointe told The Daily backstage. “I feel that as humans, you’re not black or white, so I became obsessed with this gray area.” As a result, contrasts of mixed materials like transparent vinyl juxtaposed to a neutral color palette with unexpected pops
Calvin Klein Spring 2016
The Calvin Klein Collection show this season referenced this season’s era du jour the 90s and Francisco Costa paid homage to Calvin’s famous slip dresses that were all the rage back then. The two that opened the show were perhaps the most literal interpretations. The slinky sequined and chained slip dresses that closed the show will be
Cynthia Rowley Spring 2016
This year, Cynthia Rowley opted out of the conventional presentation format for a digital experience using drones from the East End’s hottest locale.

DKNY Spring 2016
It was Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne‘s much anticipated debut at DKNY today and they delivered, just as they did earlier in the week at their show for Public School, which everyone is buzzing about.

Boss Spring 2016
The Hugo Boss woman is all about being well…the boss, and this collection aimed to please. It was about form and function and was inspired by the ideals of the Bauhaus.
