Zac Posen Fall/Winter 2016
Princess Elizabeth of Toro, a Ugandan politician, lawyer, diplomat, and model, was Zac Posen’s inspiration for Fall. “This collection was about pushing fashion forward and representing intelligent women that aren’t only represented by an overt sexuality,” said Posen backstage. “It’s about mystery, seduction, asymmetry and fluidity.” It also meant pushing his brand image in a
Rag & Bone Fall/Winter 2016
To the beats of drummers Mauro Refosco, Joey Waronker, and longtime Rag & Bone collaborator Kris Bones, a visibly pleased audience soaked in the label’s men’s and women’s collections. Refosco and Waronker are bandmates with Thom Yorke, who typically provides the soundtrack to this show, in Atoms for Peace. Marcus Wainwright and David Neville went

Maiyet Fall/Winter 2016
A year into his role as creative director of Maiyet, Declan Kearney is already feeling at home. To celebrate the sentiment, he took inspiration for his fall collection from the photography of Carlo Mollino (partially nude women lounging mostly in their abodes). “This season I feel like it’s a personal thing and it feels like home,” said Kearney.

Tommy Hilfiger Fall/Winter 2016
All aboard the S.S. contrarian! Tommy Hilfiger went nautical for fall, turning the Park Avenue Armory into a ship-shape spectacular and injecting some feel-good fashion into a season of ultra-serious clothes. Stripes, an anchor-tastic print, sparkly collars, and the occasional tiara made for a winning formula. Of the many riffs on the sailor suit, the
Carolina Herrera Fall/Winter 2016
The Frick Collection was the ideal setting for Carolina Herrera’s richly-textured take on Fall. (Austerity is not Herrera’s thing, thank heavens.) The show was so polished and pristine that if you walked out of the place with the unshakable urge to ditch your denim and retouch your lipstick, you’re not alone. A seafoam green ruffled
Edun Fall/Winter 2016
Danielle Sherman’s designs for Edun took a fresh, feminine take this season, perhaps partly due to the newness that comes with motherhood (she showed off her 7-week-old daughter on the runway after presenting her fall ’16 collection). She took cues from photographer Sharon Beal’s images of bird nests, introducing feminine dresses and separates, which she constructed from bits and pieces of contrasting materials—velour,
Prabal Gurung Fall/Winter 2016
Memo to all European luxury conglomerates looking for a new creative director: Prabal Gurung is up for the job. Between the furs, embellishments, knits, appliqués, silks, and meticulously detailed patterns, this collection had something singular for everyone (provided their pockets are deep). We are going to go ahead and surmise that this was a very
