    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

    Simone Rocha Fall 2015

    Simone Rocha revisited her muse, artist Louise Bourgeois, for her Fall collection. Rocha wrote her senior thesis on the sculptor, who is known for her giant spider sculptures that earned her the nickname “Spiderwoman”. Therefore, plenty of black looks ensued, with the models’ coifs wrapped around their necks in a frizzy, haphazard way, not unlike

    Matthew Williamson Fall 2015

    It was all flirty floral prints and furs at Matthew Williamson: quite a breath of fresh air to those of us suffering through this polar vortex. Assuming we’ll be enduring another hard winter next year, the looks from Williamson’s collection will be exactly what you want to throw on when you’re dealing with an annual

    Gareth Pugh Fall 2015

    On the menu for Gareth Pugh‘s hard-edged, completely noir collection for Fall: lots of leather, strong, sculptural silhouettes, voluminous full skirts aplenty, finished with chains and a very intense red crosses painted on the mods’ faces. Quite a striking return to LFW after years of showing in Paris (plus a brief stopover at NYFW).

    David Koma Fall 2015

    Sexy and leather-packed, David Koma‘s Fall collection was filled with micro-minis, flared sleeves and hems, saucy slits, and zippered detailing. Those zippy little silhouettes, paired with circular cutouts on various body parts and patent detailing, were modish, but seen through a darker (read: wearable) lens.

    Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Fall 2015

    Flower-dappled, large-scale plaids mingled with lots of lace-up detailing and a couple of strong, sleek coats on Preen by Thornton Bregazzi’s runway, though it’s the former that overpowered the rest of Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi‘s looks. The aforementioned plaid was softened by flouncy hemlines, lending a feminine touch the less-than-femme pattern. To finish things off, the duo rolled
