    Rochas Fall 2015

    Luxe, structured calf-grazing shifts and swingy toppers (sometimes styled monochromatically, as in look three) in chocolate, olive, marigold, and plenty of noir were trotted out in Alessandro Dell’acqua‘s Fall collection chez Rochas. Those cheeky ruffled sweetheart necklines were sweet though a touch costume-y, but the rich touches elsewhere (ostrich plumes trimming hemlines, wide cinchers, bow-necked blouses, and bits of fur

    Jacquemus Fall 2015

    Simon Porte Jacquemus is young (he’s only 24!) and making quite a name for himself on the French fashion scene. He played up his youth in his Fall 2015 collection, offering up wares that sort of harkened to playtime in preschool. While they definitely weren’t designed by a tot, they had an underlying playful, naïve tone, something that

    Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2015

    Anthony Vaccarello‘s Fall collection was full of the designer’s signatures, like asymmetrical ultra-minis, navel-grazing deep-v’s, rock n’ roll chic, and plenty of black. This season he accented the aesthetic with star cut-outs, metal fringe, and big statement-making leather and Lucite belts. Who was perched front row? Donatella Versace made an appearance in Paris to support

    Giorgio Armani Fall 2015

    With nearly 100 looks, Giorgio Armani had lots to explore for Fall. The main concept here was the simple pairing of pants and jackets. Slim trousers hit at mid-ankle, looser pants with pleats came in silver, navy, and a painterly print, and a few velvet and satin pairs were in the mix as well. The most cutting-edge style

    Missoni Fall 2015

    Back to the ’80s, ladies! Missoni channeled the over-the-top era for Fall. It was like Jem and the Holograms came to life sans the hair, and with chicer clothing, of course. (Coincidentally, a real life version of the cartoon will be released in theaters this Fall with iconic ’80s stars like Molly Ringwald and Juliette Lewis.) There were

    DSquared2 Fall 2015

    A military base mixed with a swashbuckler vibe, plus all sorts of splashy, flashy add-ons: Dean and Dan Caten‘s Fall collection offered structure (tricked-out officer-esque jackets, slim, button-bedecked army green trou, a slew of snazzy waistcoats) with very extensive embellishments. Prominent embroidery, plush fur stoles, and tribal-print B&W leggings and long-sleeved shirts mingled with equally busy fur- and

    Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2015

    Prints galore! Massimiliano Giornetti delivered a vibrant collection with stellar graphic prints for Fall. The patterns mostly came in earthy tones of forest green, chestnut brown, mustard yellow, and a berry red. 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

    Emilio Pucci Fall 2015

    It’s all but officially confirmed that Peter Dundas showed his last collection chez Pucci yesterday (to wit: he took his post-show bow with his entire team), and the Fall looks shown seemed to be a cheery way of marking the possible end of an era. There was the usual array of prints to decipher, but the dozen or so opening looks were

    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

    Bottega Veneta Fall 2015

    Instead of focusing on just one era, Tomas Maier decided to bring both the ‘60s and the ‘70s back on the Bottega Veneta runway. The clothes here aren’t stuck in the past; they just have the perfect hint of nostalgia for the bygone eras. And there’s no better interpretation of that than the prevalence of
