    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

    Christopher Raeburn Fall 2015

    For Fall, Christopher Raeburn‘s sharply-cut, statement-making toppers are the real draw. Besides the outerwear standouts (especially that asymmetrical cape that opened the show, done in a serenely-hued geometric motif of slate, white, and pale blue), there were trim pencil skirts and boxy minis plus flowy jumpsuits done in dark grey, olive, a bright brick hue, and a bit of light

    Christopher Kane Fall 2015

    Warning: This collection is NSFW (but not in the Rick Owens way, darlings!). Christopher Kane got a little kinky for Fall, sending out tunic tops and dresses, pieced together with drawings of nude male and female bodies in steamy embraces and various sexual positions. Even the print on a wispy, ladylike white skirt and dress was,

    Burberry Prorsum Fall 2015

    Beautifully busy: Burberry Prorsum’s latest collection, called “Patchwork, Pattern and Prints,” certainly delivered on that title, with earthy-toned, exceptionally ’60s floral prints that cropped up everywhere, from in-your-face fringed ponchos (including the opening look) to a subtler trim on a lean black peacoat. Dark piping tempered all that floral power on the frocks, many of which

    Erdem Fall 2015

    The rich fabrics in Erdem Moralioglu‘s collections are always to die for, and this season he gave them a bit of an undone touch. The lavish fabrics that opened the show on a few cocktail dresses looked a bit like discarded pieces of interior fabrics, patched together. Tweed skirt suits were frayed at the hems, and

    Giles Fall 2015

    Welcome to Giles’ house of drama: high, ruffled collars, plenty of prim bows, and noir lipstick cropped up for Fall. The theatrics continued until the show’s finale, when Anna Cleveland closed the show with a few twirls of her pleated frock. A bit Elizabethan and a bit Gothic, Giles Deacon‘s latest showing alternated between wearable and costume-y; a ruffled white frock with a

    Antonio Berardi Fall 2015

    From a skirt festooned with ruffles to a jumpsuit with a sweetheart neckline, plus a handful of shift dresses, and a few smart pantsuits, variation was the name of the game for Antonio Berardi‘s Fall 2015 collection. All offered up in his usual slew of intricate prints, precise cuts, and extensive embellishment, the designer is proving

    Thomas Tait Fall 2015

    There were a lot of themes at work in Thomas Tait‘s collection: futuristic sci-fi dresses, punk accents on ’70s silhouettes, draping, and solids on solids. They all worked. Black mini dresses with exaggerated shoulders and splashes of print worn with vinyl opera-length gloves were out of this world. Leather coats and dresses had punk circular adornments on

    Roksanda Fall 2015

    Compelling color combinations, undulating abstract patterning, and some very fine toppers done in shaved furs (or deeply-pigmented wools, trimmed in lush pelts) marked Roksanda Ilincic‘s vision for Fall. Shiny silver belts cinched most looks, sported oversized buckles, sometimes with a plush fur stole even tucked into the belting. The silhouettes were quite ’40s-inflected, and gauchos (including some

    JW Anderson Fall 2015

    Jonathan Anderson goes by the beat of his own drum, which is why this season he ignored the endlessly pervasive ’70s trend and went full-on ’80s. The result was incredibly fun! There were pieces like a silver lamé worn cinched with a geometric belt and triangular oversize earrings and slouchy yellow boots. The dress’ patterns

    Mary Katrantzou Fall 2015

    Bizarre fabrications, like cushy foam-rubber (which matched the bubblegum-hued runway), plastic, and spiky glass filaments trimmed most looks in Mary Katrantzou‘s high-concept latest collection. The theme was a mashup of modern-day minimalism and Victorian-era horror vacui (fear of empty spaces) and the packrat-ish clutter that ensues, according to Style.com’s Tim Blanks. That strange conceit explains the always-creative Katrantzou’s

    Jonathan Saunders Fall 2015

    Cheeky, cheerful, color-saturated: It’s Jonathan Saunders in his most signature state, and it sums up the positively groovy collection the designer trotted out in London yesterday. Saunders was inspired by artists Bridget Riley, Allen Jones, and Martin Creed, the looks involved zippy, super-graphic A-line frocks with short or long sleeves, a trippy, recurrent cloud print, a slew
