    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

    Jil Sander Fall 2015

    Strong suiting was the name of the game at Jil Sander, although this collection was replete with far more color than is usually associated with the brand. The show started off with a long navy coat, layered over coordinating pants, but the yellow shoes hinted at the colorful pieces to follow. Like sweaters with pink

    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.

    Marco de Vincenzo Fall 2015

    Marco de Vincenzo‘s collection was full of all of his tricky fabrications he’s become known for. There were woven knits only partially woven for a checkered effect, thin blue and brown lines sewn onto a grey wool coat, and denim done in multiple faded colors to look like patchwork. Velvet lime green stripes adorned a chiffon dress,

    Tod’s Fall 2015

    Go West, young woman! Alessandra Facchinetti‘s collection for Tod’s this season had an undercurrent of Western inspiration, expressed via moccasin shoes, Native American patterns, and string piping that laced around collars, or an asymmetrical pattern on a grey wool skirt. There was even a Rodeo-inspired blue suede top with floral patterns at the shoulders. But the collection

    Giamba Fall 2015

    Giambattista Valli‘s younger sister line, Giamba, has all of the flirty, feminine looks that chicettes around the globe lust over, injected with a dose of edginess for the well-to-do 20-something set. This season, Valli’s signature baby doll floral and lace mini dresses came adorned with S&M-esque harnesses. Perhaps all of the hype over Fifty Shades of Grey made

    Moschino Fall 2015

    With each collection he creates chez Moschino, Jeremy Scott further proves he was born to helm this maison. And it certainly looks like he’s having a whole lot of fun while doing it. This time around, there were a ton of themes in his collection, with nods to the Looney Tunes, a colorful ode to the ‘80s, and plenty

    Blumarine Fall 2015

    According to Blumarine’s Anna Molinari, pants are passé for Fall. Sending merely one or two trouser options down the runway in Milan today, the maison instead opted to focus on slouchy mohair sweaters and thigh-grazing jackets in lush furs. Enhancing the bare-legged look were bold patent leather booties, with pink soles that reflected in the mirrored catwalk, and

    Emporio Armani Fall 2015

    Giorgio Armani‘s Fall collection for his Emporio Armani line, entitled “Crossing Colors,” involved lots of interestingly-cut black trou, large ruffles and bows, cool-hued tweeds and knits that opened the show, followed by a couple of bright fur-tinged pieces, fuzzy rouge knit dresses, and dark velvets. There’s plenty to pick from in the office-apropos department here, thanks to the collection’s array of jackets

    Prada Fall 2015

    Bursts of color trotted down Prada’s runway this season in an array of fabrics, including techy foam and tweed, and hints of fur trimmed the ’60s silhouettes. As for the accessories? Gardening gloves came in ostrich skin, and flower pins adorned lapels. Plus, some dresses and coats had patterns that mimicked patio fencing. The ’60s suits that

    Fendi Fall 2015

    Crisp all-white looks, sumptuous suedes and furs (plentiful furs, of course) in luscious shades of rust, rouge, and chocolate, and the kind of technical innovations with superluxe materials that the maison is known for: all were on tap in Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi‘s latest Fendi looks, which were inspired by Sophie Taeuber-Arp, a ’20s Swiss artist. Stay tuned for

    Max Mara Fall 2015

    Marilyn Monroe was a chic point of reference for Max Mara this season. Specifically, the image of the buxom blonde icon lolling about on the beach in a chunky sweater, shot by George Barris in 1962, was the inspiration for Fall. That aesthetic was lifted directly from her look and adapted for the runway were messy bedhead

    No. 21 Fall 2015

    A perennial editrix fave on the calendar, Alessandro Dell’Acqua put his midas touch on a number of gold foil pieces for Fall, including slim trousers and a chic jacket with shearling detail. Look 15 was a bit prim in pink, but the chiffon top with intricate pleating and intersecting seams was an artful display of Dell’Acqua’s skill, both

    Fausto Puglisi Fall 2015

    Sex and rock n’ roll are Fausto Puglisi‘s calling cards. But this season he added an unexpected twist with an oceanic inspiration. Skirts, pants, and dresses were adorned with coral, metal medallions mimicked sea urchins and some wild black and white patterns looked like topography maps (perhaps of the ocean floor?). It was a bit

    Gucci Fall 2015

    Following up on Alessandro Michele‘s debut menswear collection as the new creative director of Gucci, the womenswear collection he debuted in Milan today mirrored the androgynous vibe that he has introduced as the new aesthetic for Gucci. Androgyny, of course, has been a theme on runways for quite some time now. It’s also been making its

    Marques’ Almeida Fall 2015

    At Marques’ Almeida, it was all about shards of fabric thrown together in a purposefully haphazard way, frayed hems, baggy swaths of fabric, and oversized knits. If you were to go to a thrift store and pile on anything and everything you found, you might come close to the idea behind this collection, although you
