    Milan Fall 2014: Salvatore Ferragamo, Jil Sander, Missoni

    Salvatore Ferragamo: Retooled classics ruled for Fall, with luxe takes on a caped coat, elegantly trimmed toppers, and elegant knits. Tale black leather boots trimmed in subtle embellishments felt work apropos and a little edgy all at once, while noir leather piping felt crisp on every piece it festooned. Animal prints worked particularly well on coats and capes that just looked incredibly rich (as did the collection at large)....

    Milan Fall 2014: Emporio Armani, Etro, Blumarine

    Emporio Armani: For Fall, Giorgio Armani is giving vous all the more reason to pile on trusty B&W pieces, along with plenty of grey, with a heavy bent on menswear. Neutrals aficionados, rejoice! Pearl-dappled trou resembled pinstripes, while other bottoms with briefer hems (done in ankle-length and knee-length iterations) featured subtle pleating. Pops of teal broke up the stark exercise in black and white.. Slightly oversized chapeaus that covered...

    Milan Fall 2014: Tod's, Versace, Sportmax

    Tod’s: Taking Tod's luxurious Milanese leather and turning it into a collection of highly covetable pieces is what Alessandra Facchinetti has done this season following up a glowing first season helming the brand as creative director. This collection was equally stunning. There were leather geometric printed ponchos, a ‘70s style tie top done entirely in burgundy leather, and a patent leather lavender skirt suit. Graphic checks came on a...

    Milan Fall 2014: Fendi, Ports 1961, Moschino

    Fendi: Cara Delevingne opened the show for Karl Lagerfeld's Fall collection for Fendi wearing a black coat with a fur hood encircling her face as she daintily held a furry charm made in the Kaiser's likeness. We imagine that will be one of the biggest sellers in this collection, but it's not just Karl in fuzzy form that will have Fendi fanatics rushing to the stores. The belted fur...

    Milan Fall 2014: Prada, Max Mara, Just Cavalli

    Prada: More than any other designer, arguably, each season the fashion set collectively waits to see what Miuccia Prada’s out-of-the-box thinking will deliver. One thing is for sure: It's almost always nothing like what everyone else is bringing to the table. For Spring, Miuccia brought us colorfully dyed fur coats designed with giant faces, but for Fall, the outerwear was all about shearling. The coats came in colorful combinations...

    Milan Fall 2014: Gucci

    The'60s have struck again! On Frida Giannini's runway at Gucci that meant ultra-covetable and sellable looks. Magazines also know a thing or two about what sells, so it's no wonder that Gianni's collection last season landed her a total of 108 cover placements for 2013. That's the most for any brand last year. And from the looks of this collection the brand may have a repeat success for 2014.

    Milan Fall 2014: No. 21, Fausto Puglisi

    No. 21: Rainbow-hued sequins, anyone? For Fall, Alessandro Dell’Acqua dreamed up a sparkle-encrusted collection for No. 21. There were sequined coats, pants, and tops layered underneath thin cashmere sweaters. Silk tank gowns were embellished, chunky sweaters were decorated, and clutches were smothered in sparkly goodness. On pieces that were simply 2-D, the melding of fabrics turned out to be brilliant pairings, like chains of beads peeking out under a...

    London Fall 2014: Burberry Prorsum, Erdem, Roksanda Ilincic

    Burberry: Christopher Bailey delivered a fantastic collection of his take on bohemian chic with The Bloomsbury Group serving as inspiration this season. The Bloomsbury Group were an influential group of writers, artists, and intellectuals in Britain during the first half of the 20th century. What ensued were the brands' classic trench coats and purses, painted and worn with long painted scarfs belted at the waist. There were big slouchy...

    London Fall 2014: Tom Ford, Peter Pilotto, Giles

    Tom Ford : Fall chez Ford is spiked with strong lines, deep hues, and that tough-to-attain amalgam of dark edge and imminent wearability. Dark shades of velvet kicked off the showing, paired with equally plush boots, with looks tinged with leather trim and laced-up bodices. The pencil skirt is Furs abounded, unsurprisingly so; what's a Ford collection without a heady dose of luxe? Animal prints made a cameo,...

    London Fall 2014: Christopher Kane, Antonio Berardi, Issa

    Christopher Kane: With so many updated references to the past peppering designers' collections, it can seem like there's nary a new idea in dressing to explore. Of course, there are exceptions, and Christopher Kane is one of them. Take, for instance, Kane's dresses for Fall, in shades of black and pale pink, with the models' arms fitted through curving sleeves that looked like sculptures. Then, there was the series...

    London Fall 2014: Vivienne Westwood, Jonathan Saunders, Paul Smith

    Vivienne Westwood Red Label: Oversized lapels, shoulder pads, geometric motifs, and heart accents. We’re not talking about the '80s; we’re thinking Vivienne Westwood and her most recent collection for her Red Label. But that wasn’t the only era visited; a nod to ancient Greece came in the form of a rouge sash and a Grecian column applique. The '50s were referenced in a black gown with a round peplum...

    London Fall 2014: Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Mary Katrantzou, Matthew Williamson

    Preen By Thornton Bregazzi: Preen’s latest fall offering was certainly a mash up of retro-futuristic elements for an interesting, if not confounding effect. Foremost, it appears that fashion has taken a bewildering affinity to a particular science fiction classic, with the likes of Star Wars characters appearing first at Rodarte in New York and now at Preen in London...

    NYFW Fall 2014: Ralph Lauren, J. Mendel, Marchesa, Reed Krakoff

    Ralph Lauren Weary editors trekked through the blizzard this morning to make it to Mr. Lauren's show at St. John's Center Studios on Washington Street on the last day of fashion week as icy snow and wind battered faces and outfits. But per usual with the fashion crowd, there were still a handful of gals that didn't trade in their heels for their snow boots. Miroslava Duma's looks apparently don't...

    Michael Kors: Easy American sportswear is what made Michael Kors his billion-dollar fortune and it’s simple to see why in this collection. Kors take on the pervasive casual undercurrent on the runways was a cohesive mix of muted tones like heather greys, camels, and creams on knits, oversize coats, and slouchy pants accented with the occasional low slung belt. Luxurious furs were thrown over denim skirts and...
