    Max Mara Resort 2016

    Ann Whitam‘s novel, Boxer Handsome, was apparently one of Max Mara creative director Ian Griffiths’ inspirations for the Resort 2016 show, but this boxer-inspired collection also conveniently debuted not long after the much talked about Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight. We suppose acclaimed literature such as the former serves as chicer inspiration. The boxing influence translated as

    Hugo Boss Resort 2016

    Jason Wu‘s resort collection for Hugo Boss is not exactly for the woman in search of her vacation getaway wardrobe. This is for the woman that means business…a.k.a. the boss. From classic red shawl coats to a two-button black vest coat pant suit, Wu’s Boss woman brings an austere but chic sophistication to the boardroom.

    Dior Resort 2016

    By choosing show Dior’s Resort collection at Le Palais Bulles, Raf Simons gave the fash pack something to talk about off the bat. The futuristic estate in the South of France was created for Pierre Cardin in 1989 by architect Antti Lovag; the iconic terracotta castle is artfully interspersed with plexiglass bubbles. That was a fitting backdrop for this widely

    Chanel Resort 2016

    For Chanel’s latest far-flung Resort adventure, Karl Lagerfeld brought a bright, playful spate of looks to Seoul, sprinkled with plenty of those signature tweeds. For this exotically-located occasion, tweed often got the Technicolor treatment, silhouetted in trim, boxy shapes. Punchy patterns abounded, with a variety of candy-hued stripe-y looks and piped solid frock and jacket combos. Quirky

    Louis Vuitton Fall 2015

    The Louis Vuitton show was held within three giant silver geometric globe structures at the Fondation Louis Vuitton just outside of Paris. The structures were an elaborate nod to the brand’s most important asset: handbags. This season the silver trunk bags resembling vintage makeup travel cases were the highlight. Some had the same geometric pattern as

    Alexander McQueen Fall 2015

    A very rosy outlook: Sarah Burton‘s latest collection chez Alexander McQueen was all about “the spirit of the rose,” inspired by David Sims’ photos in an issue of Visionaire devoted entirely to the timeless bloom. Texturally complex pieces formed the noir, blush, and lipstick red collection, like shredded patent leather on silk, finely pleated bustier-finished frocks,  saucy leather dresses in merlot and black that flaunted

    Miu Miu Fall 2015

    Miu Miu’s Fall collection was replete with glossy skins, plenty of colorful leopard, and tons of herringbone, like a trove of vintage finds, giving the style set much more to talk about than front rower Renee Zellweger’s exhaustively-discussed face. Oversized costume jewelry was also in the mix, as were bright pastel patent leather shoes, some with a multitude

    Chanel Fall 2015

    Un petit déjeuner chez Chanel! A Chanel set is almost as exciting as the clothes themselves, and this season Karl Lagerfeld was serving up breakfast in a very French brasserie complete with waiters. VIP editors were seated at white cloth tables and, per usual, the models got to partake in the fun, too. The collection

    Valentino Fall 2015

    Closing one’s runway show with a faux-walkoff of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson in full Zoolander form, to officially announce the upcoming release (next spring) of Zoolander 2? Brilliant. The beautiful collection that preceded the funny finale? Even more brilliant. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were inspired by a duo of femmes this season: Emilie Louise Flöge, Gustav Klimt’s frequent subject and companion, plus Ossie Clark’s wife,

    Saint Laurent Fall 2015

    Rocker chicks reigned supreme, yet again, on the Saint Laurent runway. And Hedi Slimane‘s loyal following will definitely have a lot to choose from. While some looks were borrowed from the boys, like a slim version of Le Smoking paired with an even skinnier tie, others were overtly sexy, like skin-tight leather dresses. The hemlines were almost obscenely

    Sonia Rykiel Fall 2015

    Featuring an all-star cast of bold faces, including Georgia May and Elizabeth Jagger, plus Ella Richards, Anna Ewers and Gigi Hadid, the Sonia Rykiel show also marked Lottie Moss’ catwalk debut. Notable names aside, artistic director Julie de Libran‘s sophomore collection proved its ’70s influence through a whole lot of stripes. The brand’s signature was banded across sparkly knits (another staple of the maison) as well

    Stella McCartney Fall 2015

    Fluid lines, a true sense of effortlessness, plenty of cozy knits, and some interesting plays on volume: welcome to Stella McCartney‘s vision for Fall. Fairly simple silhouettes, rife with cinched waists and flattering volume plays, were jazzed up with truly novel cutouts, one-arm detailing, and architectural asymmetrical stylings. The whitewashed looks were especially chic, like the one-armed

    Givenchy Fall 2015

    Victorian chola. How’s that for inspiration? Riccardo Tisci sent out an incredible collection of gothic yet romantic pieces. There were dresses with subtle crosses sewn on the chest, stunning corseted coats, tailcoats, and lush velvet dresses. The latter category’s winning look was a sapphire blue dress with an openwork bodice. Leather coats had fur tails

    Giambattista Valli Fall 2015

    Giambattista Valli’s Fall collection was full of lust-worthy matching pants and dresses, plenty of his signature flirty florals, and a bit of sparkly lamé. Stay tuned for the full review…

    Hermès Fall 2015

    Today, Hermès’ creative director of eight months, Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski, unveiled her runway debut for the hallowed house. The result? Lots of rich leather toppers and trim (and even a pair of supple overalls), calf-grazing hemlines, and a mostly neutral palette, save for a series of merlot looks and a couple pops of color. Check out the full collection

    Chloé Fall 2015

    The ’70s trend is a natural fit on the Chloé runway, and Clare Waight Keller did it justice. The patchwork pieces that came in a cape-like knit sweater and matching skirt, or done as a long velvet dress, stood out. Plus, there was denim cargo in a jumpsuit worn with a fur vest or on

    Nina Ricci Fall 2015

    Under Guillaume Henry‘s creative direction at Nina Ricci, there was significantly less of the flirty, feminine vibe that existed under Peter Copping, based on the house’s Fall showing. There was also less lace, but it did make a few cameos on t-shirt dresses and pencil skirts. The outerwear was lovely, thanks to pieces like a

    Céline Fall 2015

    When Phoebe Philo creates a collection, you can be sure it won’t look like anything you’ve seen before. This season Philo’s version of the exaggerated long sleeve came with bell-shaped cuffs, for instance, or as giant fur muffs on a stellar cream trench. Coats and capes were done in blanket-like material, and some shirts were

    Kenzo Fall 2015

    The cape had its moment at Kenzo’s Fall show, where multiple iterations were sent down the runway. While there were knit and fur options, most of the styles here had an athletic influence, with asymmetrical hemlines, a funnel neck, and stripe detailing. But the real standout was the artful layering beneath those capes: skirts were
