Jeremy Scott’s Material Girls for Moschino Fall/Winter 2017
From trash to treasure! Jeremy Scott turned fashion waste into fashion gold this season by spinning cardboard boxes, dry cleaning hangers and bags, garbage bags, duct tape, and magazine tears into clothing. Why not wear every bit of the fashion process? Scott, of course, is a master at transforming everyday products into fashion fixations. Everything from
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 spaghetti.
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.
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
Antonio Marras Spring/Summer 2017
It was the show that went on and on and on and on—Antonio Marras must have hibernated all year crafting the Spring collection he presented in Milan. For inspiration, he cited Malick Sidibé’s photos of people celebrating in Bamako, Mali in the ’60s, when the African state gained its independence. Marras’ men’s and women’s collections received the same treatment, a
Jeremy Scott Reimagines Valley of the Dolls for Moschino Spring ’17
Jeremy Scott has given new meaning to “paper dreams.” A self-proclaimed patron of Barbie, Scott shifted his focus to her predecessor for Spring '17: the paper doll. And though playfully cheeky, the collection's larger statement on our technology-obsessed, 2-D world was not missed.
Prada Spring 2017
Miuccia Prada seriously pared things down this season, and she dove into the present rather than explore the history of women. Last year Prada’s profits plunged by 28 percent according to Business Insider, so Miuccia may have been looking to keep things simple and sellable. Well, it worked. To wit: There were splendidly chic Chinois pajama-style eveningwear, the most
