Here’s a look at those catching our eye so far this week, and a spotlight on some leaders of the pack.    Simone Rocha  Such is the blend and signature that Rocha has come to coin over the years – she graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2010 and has propelled up the fashion ladder of success ever since – that...

Heading into fashion week and the world is in a state of unrest. Even yesterday on the first day of London Fashion Week, a terrorist attack in Parsons Green, west London, couldn't help but overshadow the day. So of course this would go some way into providing the canvas upon which collections were played out or conceived in the first place this season. A note from Jonathan Anderson for his JW...

Photo by Gio Staiano for NOWFASHION It was Day 1 of London Fashion Week, and the broad pavement outside the official venue on the Strand was thronged. This time, though, the street style photographers and magazine hawkers had been crowded...

“It feels like if Kate Moss and Johnny Depp were still dating and went on vacation to Bora Bora,” said Michael Kors about the evening portion of his collection in an intimate press preview the day before the show. If that doesn’t paint a picture, not much else will (unless of course you lived under a rock during the 90s).  But for the mainstay of the show – which was unusually casual and...

  When is a bra not a bra? At New York Fashion Week, apparently. The traditionally lingerie-associated item took flight from beneath layers to become the mainstay and focal point of many a collection this season, making for one of the most – and only – prominent trends, albeit a tricky one, among a landscape that was still left strewn with strange shirts of obscure layering and too-long...

That NYFW is changing, for most of the industry – from street style photographers to senior editors – is a given. The very organization of the shows this season, with more schedule gaps and with what feels like less runway shows than usual, or the much talked about departure of some America’s most ingenious designers – like Proenza Schouler, Altuzarra, Rodarte, and Thom Browne – are proof of...

Given the tumultuous times we live in, it seems fitting that fashion would try to reflect them, or perhaps even act as a window to get a break from them. Last season’s talk turned to politics with the recent presidential inaugurations in the US, so times were tough and people were, for the most part, angry. Designers championed messages of empowerment, paraded bold and controversial statements,...
