Oscar de la Renta Fall 2015 Collection: Salute the Successor

My most highly anticipated show of the week did not disappoint. On the contrary, Peter Copping’s debut at the house of Oscar was an elegant affair. To say Mr. Copping has grand shoes to fill is an immense understatement.

Trend Report: Black is Where It’s At

Black as a fashion statement, particularly one for fall? Like with florals for spring, one could cuttingly reply, “How groundbreaking.” While revolutionary it may not be, that doesn’t mean catching sight of an all-black collection, or several, is not a breath of fresh (albeit, dark) air…

Derek Lam Fall 2015 Collection

Derek Lam Fall 2015 Collection: The American Dream

Public School Fall 2015 Collection

Public School Fall 2015 Collection: School is in Session

Victoria Beckham Fall 2015 Collection

Victoria Beckham Fall 2015 Collection: Bounce It Like Beckham

While some designers apply broad themes or specific muses to catalyze their collections, Victoria Beckham tends to get inspired by a certain word that carries her through the season. For Fall ’15, the word is bounce.

Altuzarra Fall 2015 Collection: Everything is Most Dandy

Leather or lace? Altuzarra says you don’t have to choose one or the other. Elect both simultaneously! Call it Victoriana meets power-suiting. Call it the revelry that accompanies a keen juxtaposition. Call it whatever you want, but I’m calling it right now…
