    Nicholas K Fall 2015

    Film noir has never looked so chic! Cult-fave Nicholas K label, helmed by brother and sister duo Nicholas and Christopher Kunz particularly focused on the twisted film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari for Fall. “It’s a silent film,” Nicholas told us backstage. “It’s one of the first abstract painted sets, so it’s slightly distorted, very gothic, dark, and when you look

    How VFiles Is Continuing To Support Young Designers

    Every season the VFiles show kicks off Fashion Week with a burst of energy and a major dose of youth culture. These days, the latter spans every genre. It’s not quite club kid, not quite hipster, not exactly hip-hop, but rather, a bit of everything. Every season, the show becomes a hotter and hotter ticket,

    Frame Denim Fall 2015

    Frame Denim’s name might allude to collections that are purely denim-driven. But three years after its inception, the label now involves ready-to-wear for the first time. The inspiration for this range was the ’70s, most notably the American take on the key styles of the era, based on how Europeans were dressing at the time. This translated to

    Valentino Couture Spring 2015

    There’s something about Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli‘s clothes for Valentino that make us want to run through some ancient romantic castle and pretend we’re in a fairy tale. As it turns out, that romantic notion was exactly what they were going for, quite literally, with poetry sewn onto some of the gowns. They

    Viktor & Rolf Couture Spring 2015

    A perfect summer day’s essentials are comprised of a sundress, a pair of flip-flops, and a straw hat. Viktor & Rolf put their imaginative, off-kilter touch on those basics and debuted them on the couture catwalk yesterday. Starting with black and white florals, these baby-doll dresses got more and more intricate, building into wildly colorful creations featuring ruffles, smocking,

    Elie Saab Couture Spring 2015

    Elie Saab’s Couture show audience must have felt like kids in a candy store; the sweets in question were frothy frocks, dusted with a light coating of sparkles and embellished to the nth degree. The color scheme stayed pretty true to pale pinks, soft nudes, spring greens, and snowy whites, but toward the end of the

    Alexandre Vauthier Couture Spring 2015

    A slinky, sexy showing from Couture’s latest addition: Alexandre Vauthier joined the club last month, thanks to an official haute couture appellation from Chambre Syndicale, and he turned out a richly textured collection grounded in hunter green, lots of black, a couple sparky numbers (including some bejeweled knickers!), and a palette cleanser of three all-white looks. Working with extra

    Chanel Couture Spring 2015

    Hobo chic? For the debut of Chanel’s haute couture collection this season, Karl Lagerfeld sent out a trio of male Huckleberry Finns whose outfits were topped off with frayed straw hats. One model even carried a watering can. The set for the show was a faux mechanical garden. What ensued for the ladies: distressed ladylike Chanel

    Armani Privé Couture Spring 2015

    On a runway lined with plastic-ensconced bamboo stalks, Giorgio Armani‘s homage to the Far East was certainly overt. Bamboo could be spotted throughout the collection, from the print on a silk dress to the detailing on a round toe pump. Other Eastern nods included low-slung obi belts, paired with pants, skirts, pant and skirt combinations, and evening gowns.

    Bouchra Jarrar Couture Spring 2015

    Opulent gowns took a backseat this Spring at Bouchra Jarrar in favor of daytime pieces, amped up with luxe touches. Replete with shimmering tweeds, slashes of body crossing zippers, look closely, because this isn’t your average collection of work apropos separates. A swirly houndstooth skirt suit was detailed with strips of black vinyl, and that

    Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 2015

    Icy pastels and splendid flora, cut with sharp, sophisticated noir suiting were on tap for Spring chez Giambattista Valli. His grown-up take on girlishness for Spring involved gauzy tea-length skirts, some nearly tutu-like in volume, slung over swingy trou (a nod to Janis Joplin, as Valli told Style.com, mixed in with some Coco Chanel references, thanks to those

    Alexis Mabille Couture Spring 2015

    For Spring, Alexis Mabille‘s Couture collection oozed glamour. The show kicked off with a full-on sequined strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline, followed by a kimono-inspired frock covered in oversized blossoms, and each look that followed offered up quite a hefty dose of glam. That glitzy feeling extended from head to toe, with each mod sporting little

    Schiaparelli Couture Spring 2015

    It was a team effort chez Schiaparelli this season. Former creative director Marco Zanini left with just two seasons under his belt after proving instrumental in the brand’s revival, when it was resurrected by Italian business tycoon Diego Della Valle after a 60-year hiatus. The latest collection was designed by the label’s in-house staff, and it didn’t disappoint.

    La Perla Atelier Couture Spring 2015

    If you can spend thousands upon thousands on a couture wardrobe, you should be luxe from the inside out! That was theme of La Perla’s debut couture collection at the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, which blurred the lines between sporty daywear and boudoir underpinnings. The collection evolved from lingerie to beachwear to clothing with see-through effects.

    Atelier Versace Couture Spring 2015

    Donatella Versace‘s latest Couture collection was all undulating curves, all the time, from the opening flared pantsuit numbers to the intricately beaded, red carpet-ready parade of red, white, blue, and noir gowns that closed the show. After the impressive turnout of Versace gowns at the Golden Globes (including a hit white number on Kate Hudson, who was at yesterday’s

    Hermès Spring 2015

    Forget strong retro references teetering on the brink of kitsch: Christophe Lemaire went timeless and exceedingly luxe for his final collection at Hermès. The pristine sand lining the catwalk at the show, held at Luxembourg Gardens’ l’Orangerie Férou, lent a desert oasis vibe to things, and coordinated with the first 16 or so neutral looks, as well as the closing

    Miu Miu Spring 2015

    “A fashion show is always an opportunity to establish relations between its three main components: the venue, the audience and the fashion,” Miu Miu’s post-show statement read. So let’s go over each point, shall we? The venue was the Palais d’Iéna, home to the Economic, Social, and Environtmental Council in Paris, designed by architect Auguste Perret.

    Valentino Spring 2015

    Care to take a romantic tryst avec Valentino? For Spring, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli went on a Grand Tour, the rite of passage trek across Europe that was a popular 19th century tradition. Luckily, Valentino brought everyone along to see some baroque blossoms, a stop by the classic ruins, and a short stay at the sea. Just
