    Ryan Roche, Knit Wit

    A gem from last week’s NYFW print issues of The Daily that you might’ve missed…Granted, she was recently named the runner-up in the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund competition, and yes, her company is now flush with a $100,000 grant. But what intrigued us most about Ryan Roche? That splendid last name! Let’s get right to it. Are

    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

    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.

    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
