    Ellery Spring 2016

    Kym Ellery already has a following including It girls and street style stars, and her pieces are carried at top luxury retailers like Net-a-Porter, but this was Ellery’s first-ever show in Paris. The brand is known for its big volumes, bell sleeves, and bell pants, which make great statement pieces for its Instagram-happy clientele. But this season Ellery took it

    The Cutest Catwalk in Paris: Bonpoint Spring 2016

    The Bonpoint show at the Jardin du Luxembourg was perhaps one of the most enjoyable shows in Paris all week. What could be more fun than seeing a bunch of absolutely adorable smiling children sweetly parading down a runway made to look like a country cottage? Children trotted out in Bonpoint’s chic clothing to celebrate

    Saint Laurent Spring 2016

    With Courtney Love in the front row, the tiaras weren’t exactly a surprise. What was a little provocative, however, were the clothes. It’s not like Hedi Slimane has been getting terribly conceptual during his tenure at Saint Laurent, but his Spring collection is deliberately middlebrow: slipdresses that were shapeless enough to suggest fashion of the fast

    Chanel Takes Flight for Spring 2016

    Bon voyage! Chanel took flight at the Grand Palais in Paris today. Guests walked into a Chanel airport complete with airline check-in desks, luggage conveyor belts, and departure and arrival screens, which listed all of the chic locales where the brand has held its special Métiers d’Arts shows including Singapore, Dubai, Dallas, Salzburg, Shanghai, New York,

    Valentino Spring 2016

    Socially driven is certainly one way to describe the Valentino Spring ’16 collection. The clothing, including white ceramic jewelry that looked like teeth and Masai-inspired patterns, may appear to have some major African influences, and that was entirely intentional. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were inspired to remind their audience of the tens of thousands of African refugees who in the past year have

    Giambattista Valli Spring 2016

    Janelle Monae, Salma Hayek, and Lee Radziwill all sat front row at Giambattista Valli in Paris. The three could not differ more aesthetically or in life stages of dressing—Monae is 29, Hayek is 49, and Radziwill is 82. The Valli girl is of all ages. And there were looks for each of them on this runway, and if

    Hermès Spring 2016

    Foolproof dressing, right this way. Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski’s sophomore collection for the house does not cater to sartorial risk-takers, but it offers its loyal customer an array of hardworking separates to carry her through the season and its social calendar. White frocks in various lengths, black jackets with multiple purposes, nifty trousers, and even a graphic

    Céline Spring 2016

    Anyone in the mood for romance? Just when you dare to think you know what to expect from Phoebe Philo, she injects newness into the mix. For Spring, that meant lace, used as trimming on hemlines, bodices, and most notably, a slipdress. But that was only one element of Philo’s razor-sharp vision—her runways are full

    Sarah Burton’s Fairy Tale for Alexander McQueen Spring 2016

    Last night at Alexander McQueen guests filed into 145 rue de Malsherbes, in what we hear was reduced seating due to the venue this season, expecting to see something at once beautiful, sometimes dark, and a bit eccentric as we’ve come to expect from McQueen. It was, as always, a highly anticipated show with Anna
