    Roland Mouret Fall 2015

    What’s black, white, peppered with busy prints, and interspersed with bright pops of color? That would be Roland Mouret‘s go at appealing to the younger style set. While his lifelong quest to flatter the woman’s body was definitely still present, thanks to studded waist belts and figure-skimming shapes, this season was a departure for the

    Vionnet Fall 2015

    There’s been quite a bit of press around Vionnet’s creative director Goga Ashkenazi, given the former energy magnate’s lack of formal design training, a social life worthy of the tabloids, and a very healthy fortune. Backstory aside, how are the clothes? This season involved a flurry of long, slim silhouettes interposed with a healthy mix of textures and

    Dries Van Noten Fall 2015

    Dries Van Noten paid homage to China, Indonesia, and India in his signature rich and eclectic mix of fabrics. He revisited some of the giant floral brooches from Fall 2014, but now they came adorning the neck instead of the shoulder. A fluffy shearling collard came on a gold brocade coat with a quilted bottom and

    Guy Laroche Fall 2015

    As far as debut collections go, taking a peek at the archives of the brand is a sensible place to start. Adam Andrascik took that route chez Guy Laroche, poring over the late designer’s collection of sketches to inform his Fall designs. The outcome? He certainly kept the ’80s-inspired opulence intact, especially in the form of silver and gold

    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

    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
