Chanel Spring/Summer 2017
With technology becoming more innovative (and invasive) than even the most visionary sci-fi pioneers could have imagined, Karl Lagerfeld’s techy take on 2017 vision was a deliberate throwback to more mainframe times.

Maria Grazia Chiuri Creates a Dio(R)evolution at Christian Dior
Bring on the Dio(R)evolution! Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut at Dior was a major about-face for the brand and a feminist manifesto of sorts.
