Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2017
Anthony Vaccarello‘s debut at Saint Laurent was pure sex appeal—he has a bit of a knack for that after all. For a designer who’s forte is the ultra ultra mini, what better way to jumpstart his new role than with a tribute to the ’80s? The show opened with a puff shouldered leather dress with a
Jacquemus Spring/Summer 2017
Out marched Les Santons de Provence chez Jacquemus. Santons are a type of figurine in France that either represent a certain cultural region or dress such as Provence or can sometimes refer to the figurines in a nativity scene. The santons in this collection were the: the Arlésienne, the grandfather, the cook, the shepherd, the woman
Olivier Theyskens Spring/Summer 2017
Olivier Theyskens’ return to fashion this season after a hiatus post-Theory was a collection of quiet straightforward elegance. These are clothes for a woman who wants to exude elegance without screaming. Most of the 25-piece collection was black, grey, or white, save for one easy silk cherry-red dress. There were suit jackets with short skirts, which depending
Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2017
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana sure do have fun coming up with the inspirations for their collections, but they first and foremost always are inspired by their country. So mixed in among Dolce & Gabbana classics like a skin-tight sheer black dress worn over '50s-style underpinnings, a leopard print suit, a corset top, and a pair of embellished high-waist hot pants were dresses with prints like bundles of uncooked...
DSquared2 Spring/Summer 2017
There was plenty of everything for everyone to ogle in Dean and Dan Caten’s Spring collection for DSquared2. True showmen, the Caten's collection was certainly something to enjoy, but leads us to wonder, what else do they have up their sleeves? That was quickly answered: the brand will combine its men's and women's show beginning in 2017.
Missoni Spring/Summer 2017
How to keep things fresh at a family-run biz? Keeping it simple and pure is just the ticket. In Angela Missoni's Spring ’17 collection, that inspo came by way of a kaleidoscope of color, and color-blocking in tangerine, bright blue, gold, blush, and more.
Salvatore Ferragamo Spring/Summer 2017
Fulvio Rigoni, the head of design for womenswear, led Salvatore Ferragamo's collection design this season after the departure of Massimiliano Giornetti. He played it safe, and perhaps that's what the Ferragamos wanted.
MSGM Spring/Summer 2017
Massimo Giorgetti has a way of taking all of the season's hottest trends and making them feel fresh again. Netting, drawstring ties, ruffles, eyelet designs, and sporty knit stripes were all there, but with Giorgetti's mastery of color and keen eye for mixing and styling these pieces together, it felt cool.
Marni Spring/Summer 2017
Nautical ropes, drawstrings, and other outdoorsy elements have been a thing on the Milan runways. Consuelo Castiglioni took it one step further by adding giant fanny pack hip extenders—although these weren’t so much “packs” as they were full-on bags. Not a bad idea if you’re on some rustic days-long trek through the wilderness, but in
Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini Spring/Summer 2017
What is Lorenzo Serafini’s philosophy? Romanticism infused with references to things past. Serafini is known for his affinity for antiquing and often finds inspiration in pieces he’s picked up from antique dealers around the globe. But this season, he dove into relics of the not so distant past—Brooke Shields in The Blue Lagoon was his reference point
