    Emilio Pucci Spring 2015

    With a touch of fringe, a bit of macrame, and a healthy dose of bell bottoms, it’s clear that Peter Dundas had his eye on the ’70s for his latest offering from Emilio Pucci. But that didn’t mean the selection was limited to costume-y period pieces. A saccharine sweet ivory short suit was followed up by

    Roberto Cavalli Spring 2015

    Roberto Cavalli is always bold, never boring, and his Spring collection just furthered that notion. Psychedelic prints in gleaming reds, blues, greens, and yellows were accompanied by monochromatic black, brown and white ensembles. Texture also played a major role, taking shape in ornate pleating, ripped denim, croc-embossed leather, and sequins. Lots of sequins. There was also a bit of normcore

    Jil Sander Spring 2015

    Jil Sander’s recently appointed creative director, Rodolfo Paglialunga, made a striking debut six or so months after beginning the job, with a deliciously minimalist collection, brimming with tomboy-apropos pieces. This seemed to be the parfait destination for him, as he combined aesthetics from his past gigs at Prada and Vionnet to serve up a collection that was so much more than

    Giorgio Armani Spring 2015

    Often times, designers seem to forget the temperament that spring weather implies, but not Giorgio Armani. Muted shades of creams, hushed greys, soft blacks, and luminous whites comprised the latest looks in his namesake collection, offering an appropriate color palette for breezy spring mornings. Before the show began, Armani presented a short film by renowned director

    Tod’s Spring 2015

    If you were to stumble upon the most glorious garden filled with florals translated into pale sheaths of leather, the result would be Alessandra Facchinetti‘s latest runway showing. As for the focus of this Spring collection from Tod’s? Tailored pieces, clean lines, and plenty of luxe hides, all set in a modern, indoor garden venue. A palette

    Missoni Spring 2015

    The messy, undone, carefree type of chic ruled Missoni’s Spring show, where floral motifs attributed to the bohemian freedom of a relaxing summer vacation. Perhaps a weekend at the Amalfi Coast? Or a lazy week spent at Cap d’Antibes? Wherever the location, Missoni’s trademark chevron served as backdrop to many floral dustings and a variety of

    At Prada this season, Miuccia Prada delivered some of her greatest hits, which included top-stitched, buttoned up outerwear as well as sumptuous leather coats. There were also knee-length skirts with cardigans, knee-high stockings in various colors and patterns, and one fabulous black and white fur. These are all motifs we’ve seen Prada do before. Perhaps out

    Fendi Spring 2015

    Fast and furious! For Spring, Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturi Fendi trotted out a zippy blue and rouge orchid motif to kick off Fendi’s latest showing on a highway-esque catwalk splashed with a median line. Between the bursts of pattern, excellent cropped jackets and piece-y miniskirts came out to play. To wit: look 15′s exquisitely fabricated grey leather

    Moschino Spring 2015

    According to Jeremy Scott‘s latest looks for Moschino, this is Barbie’s world, and we’re just living in it. Moving on from Fall’s overindulgence in McDonald’s and fast food delights, Spring at the Italian label is very blonde and totally obsessed with bubble gum pink. It all started with look une: a pink leather moto jacket crop top with a coordinating

    Emporio Armani Spring 2015

    There’s a reason why Armani is worth billions. Like Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, he has a formula and a laser-focused brand message that he sticks to season after season, regardless of trends. So, what was on tap this season? Armani blues and greys and expertly tailored suiting, bien sûr. That tried-and-true aesthetic was translated

    Etro Spring 2015

    Bohemian types and Coachella regulars, take note: Etro served up a collection chock full of Navajo influences and Western details. That means, yes, plenty of fringe, a lot of geometric bead work, and a whole lot of tan suede. This inspiration was so deeply woven into the collection, that it started with long, careless middle parted locks

    Max Mara Spring 2015

    Prepare for a bit of a time warp to the decade du season: Max Mara took a trip to the early ’70s for Spring. The influence was spelled out clearly in hues of rust, camel, and brown, but it was also found in fabrics including suede trousers and a crochet sweater. To further prove the point, pussy

    Francesco Scognamiglio Spring 2015

    Sleepwear’s gone chic. thanks to Francesco Scognamiglio’s Spring offering. The collection opened up with a spate of baby blue silk pieces, decorated with bits of lace, which certainly lent a boudoir-esque feeling. The sheer dresses and floaty skirts revealed a peek of underpinnings, mostly in the form of high-waisted briefs. But the most successful bedroom looks translated into

    Alberta Ferretti Spring 2015

    Dreamy, ethereal prettiness: Alberta Ferretti‘s got the market cornered on all things wispy and feminine, and she didn’t disappoint this season. Nude floor-grazers in  beautifully worked gauzy layers dominated the collection, along with an array of pitch-perfect white frocks sporting incredible detailing, the most perfect takes on eyelet and floral embroidery around. Pastels balanced out the emphasis on

    No. 21 Spring 2015

    Boxy shapes and a mishmash of crisp button-down shirting and girlish, sheer eyelets and embroidery, often cinched at the waist aggressively with mannish black leather belts, was Alessandro Dell’acqua‘s Spring look chez No.21. A bit of military, a bit of boudoir chic nighttime dressing, and lovely embellishment ruled throughout. Those oversized duchesse satin bow adorned mules, in rich

    Fausto Puglisi Spring 2015

    Fausto Puglisi‘s shows are always a fun, energetic treat. You can expect plenty of Italian decadence, bursts of color, and eye popping patterns. Mercifully, here we didn’t have yet another ’70s-inspired showing. This season chez Puglisi, it was all about the suburban gladiator, apparently. There were skirts worn over pants, like an opening number on

    Gucci Spring 2015

    Yes, it was the ’70s again. If the runways in New York, London, and Milan are any indication, you’ll be wearing this era come spring. Time to purchase a pair of bell bottoms, darlings. Gucci was at the height of its fame as a luxury house in the ’70s, so the brand was right at home

    Christopher Kane Spring 2015

    It was a much more subdued Christopher Kane this season. Maybe it’s that 51 percent stake Kering owns in the brand that’s guiding Kane into a more (dare we say) commercial realm. To wit: An easy pair of drawstring maroon leather pants were paired with a simple matching pale blue, maroon, and white houndstooth patterned

    Tom Ford Spring 2015

    No one does sizzling sex appeal to the nth degree while somehow maintaining a sense of sophisticated luxury like Tom Ford. The man knows how to electrify a runway, and this season it was all about legs, legs, legs! Ultra short minis and high slits revealed the models’ endless stems in sheer ’80s style hosiery,
