This evening’s Zac Posen show was awash with new faces and a new feeling. The common thread that usually and uniquely connects Posen’s work was instantly identifiable but something felt a little different. Un je ne sais quoi was in the air. Most importantly, it was on the runway.     Perhaps it was the injection of new mesmerizing micro-shapes and the myriad buzzy colors? Or maybe...

A psychedelic dart. One that awakens visions. Manga, punk, teen-vampires, Star Trek. A mix of seemingly delicate femininity and neon brights that refresh their sets and their experimental couture. Unusual origins, California. Los Angeles, now loved for its fashion shows but difficult to imagine as a laboratory of haute couture. The city of angels reinvented by Kate and Laura Mulleavy....

A small grosgrain flag made up of three precise colours appears on Thom Browne’s jackets and on the back of his shoes, paired with his famous shorts, sported by the man himself. Below those carefully honed, tiny, perfectly fitting jackets, part of his new silhouette and one of his trademark motifs. Ever since his first collection in 2004, Mr. Thom Browne has shaken things up, putting the male...

Australian expats Ramon Martin and Ryan Lobo, who comprise the design duo Tome, launched four years ago. Aside from the interesting fact that each season they jointly choose iconic women as a source of inspiration to design part of their collections – a muse to catalyze their vision if you will – it seems also important to note that one of their singular strengths lies in their unusual...

To say Tommy Hilfiger show was a carnival is an understatement at best. The American designer pulled out all the stops, showcasing what a well-oiled marketing team looks like for their first in-season fashion show, except maybe for the budget and available resources. From the moment they decided to tap Gigi Hadid as co-designer for the fall collection, to the opening of the gates for over 2,000...

Occasionally, certain trims seem to go away for a while – for better or for worse and whether it’s warranted or not. Sometimes it’s because they’ve become outdated or abused; other times it’s because they’ve fallen out of grace or been overused. And yet, if fashion has taught us anything, it’s...
Occasionally, certain trims seem to go away for a while – for better or for worse and whether it’s warranted or not. Sometimes it’s because they’ve become outdated or abused; other times it’s because they’ve fallen out of grace or been overused. And yet, if fashion has taught us anything, it’s that everything comes back at some point or another; it’s just a matter of time. Case...

While seeing fall product on the cusp of the fall season makes sense practically, one can’t help but feel somewhat confused by the contrast of other spring-infused collections that are being shown simultaneously. This voluntary mix-up was definitely present in Tom Ford and Thakoon’s ready-to-wear shows. Dark, moody, and autumnal color schemes set the tone that fall is indeed upon us - not...

Across all the fashion capitals and all the menswear catwalks, you haven’t been able to move for bombers. They have been everywhere.

Across all the fashion capitals and all the menswear catwalks, you haven’t been able to move for bombers. They have been everywhere. Sometimes they’ve been more baseball, other times more blouson or varsity, but the overriding message is the same: guys, your wardrobe needs, really needs, a bomber jacket. Who to look to? Louis Vuitton had some seriously beautiful and neat little luxe numbers in...

Travel: almost every designer made reference to it this season across all of the fashion capitals; it was the big overarching theme. Hardly surprising, really, that everyone is seeking solace somewhere else right now. Escape is the ultimate antidote when real life brings you down and all you need to do is step inside your wardrobe to have that rectified. So where did everyone go? And who should...

What kind of bride are you? That’s a question that can immediately be answered by your reaction to the couture collections and the parade of gowns that come down the catwalk with them. Because when it comes to couture, the role of the finale bridal gown is – literally – a big one (just see the swathes of fabric that make for the trailing trains and billowing skirts): it’s an important...
