Just as talk of see-now-buy-now was rife across the four international fashion capitals this past month, it spread like wild fire onto São Paulo this season, a “season-less” one at that and the 42nd edition of the South American style showcase, where a host of brands were adopting the much hyped format: Animale, Lilly Sarti, Iodice Osklen, LAB, À La Garçonne, Lolitta, and Patrícia Viera being...

NEW-YORK, as the first week on the month-long fashion calendar, was subsequently the first to kick into action with its versions of See Now, Buy Now – Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, and Tom Ford were among those who partook.

Fashion has become a democracy. From social media to seeing-now-shopping-now to those that walk the catwalk, it revolves around the customer. That might seem like an obvious thing to say, but it’s not – because oftentimes, in fashion, “commercial” comes with dirty connotations; it suggests something isn’t creative, new, forward-thinking, or innovative. But that’s not true. And the savviest and...

In the town that couldn't exude more youth or verve or sense of cool if it tried right now, Paris was surely then the sweet spot for Emporio Armani to up sticks from its native Milan and show for Spring/Summer 2017. Something of a significant move and a one-time only stunt from the designer for his younger and more accessible line, in a time of change and fashion flux it made total sense. Even...
