    Tibi Resort 2015

    Pack your bags, we’re going a sailing trip with Tibi’s Amy Smilovic, but don’t forget your flask! For Resort, the designer decided to put her own, naughty spin on the nautical trend, although a misbehaving sailor is not guaranteed with purchase. Rather, there are sailing references aplenty, including toggled sweaters, a healthy dose of stripes, and enough

    Chloé Resort 2015

    Chloé’s smash hit list continues with the label’s 2015 Resort collection. Arriving on the heels of the splashy re-opening of their  Madison Ave. store, Clare Waight-Keller took some clues from Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye to infuse some architectural details into the line. But the collection isn’t just a mix of straight lines and curves; the use of texture is

    Antonio Marras Resort 2015

    Antonio Marras made his first showing stateside this Resort season, bringing along his muse and wife Patrizia and their two sons, 21-year-old Efisio and 15-year-old Leo. It was the latter’s first time in the city ,so he was busy skateboarding in the Bronx, while the rest of la familia was holding down the fort at

    Kenzo Resort 2015

    Always the fashion pioneers of downtown, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, to hold the first major fashion event at the World Trade Center before the fashion glossies and retail stores have even arrived. The design duo presented their resort collection for Kenzo in the lobby of 4 World Trade Center last night, giving Condé Nast

    Jason Wu Resort 2015

    Save for a few skin-baring details, Jason Wu’s Resort line was a collection of clean and polished pieces that would be swell, chic office attire. And while the designs were devoid of Wu’s signature underlying sensual qualities, but that didn’t detract from the collection’s appeal. Wu turned toward industrial designer Dieter Rams for inspiration, focusing on clean

    10 Crosby Derek Lam Resort 2015

    It’s been a good year for 10 Crosby Derek Lam. The successful diffusion line of Derek Lam‘s main ready-to-wear collection has announced the opening of its own standalone store coming to Soho in October and the brand also has its own shop-in-shop on Amazon.com with 10 deliveries a year. So its no wonder that the

    Missoni Resort 2015

    The color scheme chez Missoni for Resort 2015 has a dark tinge to it, fitting for, say, that rainy afternoon while vacationing on a tropical island. The deep shades included bright hues of purple, yellow and green accented with a heavy dose of noir. The knits are the centerpiece of the collection, as one would

    Michael Kors Resort 2015

    How with the times is Michael Kors? The designer described his resort collection as “#normkors”, playing on the internet-meme turned fashion movement terminology “normcore”. That meant there were pieces like a pleated white mom shorts, Birkenstocks, pullover hoodies, anoraks, below-the-knee flouncy denim skirts, and knit sweaters and scarfs that looked like they came crotched by way

    Resort 2015: Carolina Herrera

    A clean, fresh take on feminine: welcome to Carolina Herrera’s vision for Resort. The pared-down pieces were ground in neutrals, rife with the types of midnight blues and B&W prints that actually get closet mileage (…again and again and again). A particularly minimalist cream day-apropos ensemble felt sharp (and innately wearable), with a pencil skirt

    Resort 2015: Donna Karan

    It’s a pajama party chez Donna Karan! It was all feminine softness mixed with a sense of laid back chic that defined the designer’s resort collection this season. “From boudoir to black tie” read the press notes, which meant that there were slip dresses to be worn day or night, wispy chiffon bias-cut dresses, slouchy

    Resort 2015: Max Mara

    When an old-school Italian label puts a bit of a hip-hop spin on their Resort collection, the outcome seems like it would be a little off kilter, non? But when Max Mara’s creative director Ian Griffiths found his inspiration in New York circa the ’80s and infused it with some updated designs, the result became both tailored and

    Resort 2015: Chanel

    (NEW YORK) Leave it to Karl Lagerfeld, who is always proclaiming that he is looking to the future and not the past, to choose Dubai as the setting for Chanel’s resort show this season. The mélange of East meets West, third world meets new world, and whopping amounts of money mixed with traditional values is the perfect stage

    Versace Milan Fall 2014

    Two words that aren’t often paired together are demure and Versace, but for Fall, the former perfectly describes the latter. Full of long-sleeved dresses with generous hemlines, plenty of pants, and myriad coats, this isn’t quite the Versace we’re used to! Gold details that are synonymous with the label, like buttons and heavy chain necklaces,

    Paris Fall 2014: Hermès, Miu Miu, Zuhair Murad

    Hermès: For a house synonymous with luxury, it makes sense that its ready-to-wear collection should look unmistakably rich in a completely understated and sophisticated way. When you're able to spend at the Hermès level you don't need to show off your riches; people just simply know you are. That's why Christophe Lemaire's runway included a classic tailored suit in deep forest green done entirely in astrakhan, a grey overcoat...

    Paris Fall 2014: Louis Vuitton

    Louis Vuitton: The long awaited moment chez Louis Vuitton finally arrived. Marc Jacobs' successor, Nicolas Ghesquière, took over the reins after Jacobs’ 14-year tenure at the brand as creative director. So, how did he fare? Ghesquière's view on Vuitton was much more pared-down than his predecessor's elaborate fantastical collections. There were no headdresses, ornate beading, or Steven Sprouse leggings; nor were there any elevators, carousels, or escalators to serve...

    Paris Fall 2014: Valentino, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac

    Valentino: Following a dreamy Couture showing exalting the opera, Valentino’s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli opted for a peppier, more modern inspiration for Fall: Italian Pop art. The result? Groovy florals and prints bursting with bright hues. The dot-ladden motifs came in a sunny combo of white, black, rouge, and bubblegum pink as well as a more subdued, very ‘70s palette of olive Besides the cheerful, straightforward...

    Chanel: This isn't Monoprix, darlings, this is what everyday shopping looks like, done the Chanel way! One thing is for sure, you can always count on Karl Lagerfeld's runways to be among the most elaborate and interesting each season, and Fall was no different. In the "Chanel Shopping Center", models like Cara Delevingne, donning a holey bubble gum cashmere crop top and matching cashmere pants with an ‘80s style...

    Paris Fall 2014: Giambattista Valli, Saint Laurent, Veronique Branquinho

    Giambattista Valli: For Fall, Giambattista Valli started off with a bang, in the form of black and white printed dresses and coats. One Rorschach test-esque print blended into blurred lines as the mods walked down the thickly carpeted runway. Mod Sasha Luss debuted the collection’s first pop of color—a dusty pink coatdress in a very ladylike silhouette, setting the tone for the rest of the romantic looks. The color...
