    Hermès Fall 2015

    Today, Hermès’ creative director of eight months, Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski, unveiled her runway debut for the hallowed house. The result? Lots of rich leather toppers and trim (and even a pair of supple overalls), calf-grazing hemlines, and a mostly neutral palette, save for a series of merlot looks and a couple pops of color. Check out the full collection

    Chloé Fall 2015

    The ’70s trend is a natural fit on the Chloé runway, and Clare Waight Keller did it justice. The patchwork pieces that came in a cape-like knit sweater and matching skirt, or done as a long velvet dress, stood out. Plus, there was denim cargo in a jumpsuit worn with a fur vest or on

    Nina Ricci Fall 2015

    Under Guillaume Henry‘s creative direction at Nina Ricci, there was significantly less of the flirty, feminine vibe that existed under Peter Copping, based on the house’s Fall showing. There was also less lace, but it did make a few cameos on t-shirt dresses and pencil skirts. The outerwear was lovely, thanks to pieces like a

    Céline Fall 2015

    When Phoebe Philo creates a collection, you can be sure it won’t look like anything you’ve seen before. This season Philo’s version of the exaggerated long sleeve came with bell-shaped cuffs, for instance, or as giant fur muffs on a stellar cream trench. Coats and capes were done in blanket-like material, and some shirts were

    Kenzo Fall 2015

    The cape had its moment at Kenzo’s Fall show, where multiple iterations were sent down the runway. While there were knit and fur options, most of the styles here had an athletic influence, with asymmetrical hemlines, a funnel neck, and stripe detailing. But the real standout was the artful layering beneath those capes: skirts were

    Vivienne Westwood Fall 2015

    A catwalk party! Strewn with sparkly confetti, suspended from the ceiling and tossed on the runway, that’s how Vivienne Westwood’s latest show looked. A coed crop of mods donned tweaked takes on suiting and long, sweeping skirts and frocks, many topped with hula skirt-esque fringe. Even the blokes wore dresses (and looked pretty good doing so).

    Elie Saab Fall 2015

    Darkly, demurely sexy: Elie Saab’s Fall collection kicked off with Karlie Kloss in an all-noir getup and progressed through a series of leather and lace-trimmed looks, mainly in black, a delicious deep teal, and olive. Silhouettes alternated between little minidresses, cinched with slim monochromatic belts and finished with long sleeves, and slightly high-waisted trou-and-blazer looks. The solid looks

    Haider Ackermann Fall 2015

    This season, the Haider Ackermann girl sported her hair messily piled on top of her head, along with gloves and thigh-high boots. There were plenty of constants, from the complicated layering of shirts, skirts, jackets, and belts, to the wild mix of prints.. A trio of printed jackets were paired with colorful pants and tied

    Maison Margiela Fall 2015

    He’s back! John Galliano delivered the kind of theatrical show in Paris for Maison Margiela that the fashion world had been waiting for, after what felt like a warm-up show last season in London. Some called the theme “crazy cat lady”, but the show notes read, “A fashion lo-fi: like Polaroids inflected with acid dreams.”

    Balenciaga Fall 2015

    Injecting some edge into the classic silhouettes and aesthetic of a hallowed house like Balenciaga. That’s what Alexander Wang has been striving for since taking on the creative director gig at the maison, and he did it again for Fall, with a show that kicked off with a performance by Lady Gaga. The classic fare was comprised of cocoon coats,

    Christian Dior Fall 2015

    The Dior show at the Louvre today was full on animal prints, tweed suiting, and fur (including a couple of fully fur sleeveless A-line dresses). Raf Simons also brought back those patent thigh-high legging boots that have been a trend-setting hit. This time they came spotted in a myriad of colors. Plus! More full-body leotards in

    Isabel Marant Fall 2015

    Each season, it seems Isabel Marant releases the latest uniform for it-girls around the globe. Her Fall collection was no exception. Haute items included white paperbag-waist pants with a button detail, and fisherman sweaters in white and red, featuring rounded shoulders. For those in the market for a prissy floral piece, there were plenty of options, many of which

    Lanvin Fall 2015

    Alber Elbaz turned out a stunning collection that revisited his birthplace, Casablanca, Morocco. There was tassels, fringe, and shearling. Looks were styled a few different ways, including a Berber-inspired iteration, with layers upon layers of clothing and prints. To wit: a heavy fur coat was worn over striped pants with a fur neck warmer, a

    Loewe Fall 2015

    The bags at Loewe sort of stole the show this season. Since his arrival at the storied Spanish brand, Jonathan Anderson has made his mark in the accessories category, and he further cemented his success with this Fall collection. The purses came in a pleasingly wide array of styles: some were squishy and soft, done in bright pastel hues,

    Rick Owens Fall 2015

    Rick Owens, in true Rick Owens form, turned completely on his heels for his women’s show by toning things down with a more “safe for work” showing for the femmes, following his very revealing men’s collection. “If the men’s Fall Sphinx collection was about anarchy and Arcadia, the women’s Fall collection shares the same name and same mood

    Issey Miyake Fall 2015

    Rich textures done in voluminous, arty silhouettes and vibrant pops of color against a backdrop of black kicked off Issey Miyake’s Fall show, which included the maison‘s trademark artistry and always-impressive technical feats. Of course, said feats were heavy on the pleats, precise and origami-esque, to beautiful effect.

    Color galore! It was a splash of vibrant hues to match Olivier Rousteing‘s equally-colorful front row. The big news, of course, is that Kim Kardashian arrived at Balmain with new bleached-blonde tresses to support little sister Kendall Jenner walking the runway. Jared Leto was also front row with newly platinum locks for his role as

    Alexis Mabille Fall 2015

    Athleisure on the catwalk in Paris…could it be? Oui. Alexis Mabille’s Fall 2015 collection definitely had a sportif touch, spiffed up with his signature sultry details. Leggings with a singular leg-lengthening stripe were paired with bonded sweatshirts, dressed up with crisscrosses of dangling chains. Even frocks and elegant tops were fashioned in the sporty fabric. The athletic look was
