Tibi Debuts Menswear as Part of Fall 2019 Runway Show
Designer Amy Smilovic has a loyal following for her tailored suits and smart aesthetic at Tibi. This season she continued to provide fashion-forward yet mature looks — something many women have been worried would disappear with the absence of Phoebe Philo from Celine. Smilovic is certainly carrying on Philo’s mantle off-setting feminine nipped in waists with billowing pieces and flat shoes.
For the first time men can get in on the action too — Tibi debuted its menswear collection. Smilovic is sure to gain a similarly devoted male audience as she has with women, especially after sending minimalist (yet colorful) business casual looks down the runway with flip flops.
Kaia and Presley Gerber Leave IMG for DNA
DNA just poached two of the hottest models right now: Kaia and Presley Gerber. The duo, who were previously with IMG, apparently followed their agent. A rep for IMG told Page Six: “Kaia and Presley Gerber are exceptionally talented, and we are proud to have played a part in launching their careers.”
Wow, Dion Lee was Absolutely Stellar
Is it possible for a collection to be architectural and romantic? Structured and flowing? Constrained and free? Yes to all, as evidenced by Dion Lee’s stunning Fall 2019 collection. Dichotomy has always been an important aspect of the brand, but this season, Lee’s ability to balance opposing aesthetic forces was striking. Without a doubt, those corsets will be everywhere in six months — from the pages of magazine to the backs (and busts) of the world’s top street style stars.
Yoox Launches Franca Sozzani Private Collection
Today, Yoox launched the Franca Sozzani Private Collection — an exclusive selection of memorable designer pieces cherished by the fashion icon. The collection features 397 ready-to-wear and haute couture pieces, as well as 190 accessories, presented through five categories: The Eclectic, The Black Tale, The Londoner, The Unconventional, and The Dream Dimension, with prices ranging from $145 for a bag to $3,025 for a dress.
Proceeds from the sales, will benefit the new Franca Sozzani Fund for Preventive Genomics at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital at Harvard (francafund.org), established by Franca Sozzani’s son, Francesco Carrozzini, who is also presenting a new biography of his mother, Franca: Chaos and Creation, published by Assouline, today. The biography is also available on YOOX.
Designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim threw a party in lieu of a show this season, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy their new collection with a lookbook! This season the duo used an all-star, all-Asian cast including Anna Sui, Waris Ahluwalia, and Tao Okamoto, among others. The collection itself was inspired by the personal style and friendship of ’80s and ’90s era actor/singers Anita Mui and Leslie Cheung. “Anita and Leslie both embodied an experimental, often genderfluid way of dressing that we aspired to capture in the collection and lookbook,” said Leon. “They were true nonconformists, and the friends we tapped for this shoot are the modern versions of them.”
Beauty Spotlight: LaQuan Smith’s Smoky Eye
