New York Fashion Week Roundup, Part 1

New York Fashion Week Roundup, Part 1: Peter Som, Rebecca Minkoff, and Suno

I kicked off the week with the talented Peter Som, and his subtly Pop Art-inspired Spring ’15 collection felt the perfect way to start. Looking to classic all-American beauties, like Lauren Hutton, Edie Sedgwick, and Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, as his muses, he had women “who embody a certain boldness” in mind.

Trend Report: Men’s Fashion Month Spring/Summer 2015

This season, the dates of the London shows were moved up to avoid coinciding with Pitti Uomo. Translation: the guys have now have their own MONTH. And why not? I think it’s time we start taking menswear a little more seriously.

Have you ever fallen in love with a piece seasons after it came gliding down the runway? Somehow it fell through the cracks, and now you have little to no chance of finding it…

Hermès Fall 2014 Collection

Hermès Fall 2014 Collection: The Grand Tradition

The Hermès show is always my favorite of Fashion Month. Not merely for the obvious reasons but also because it’s the most civilized show of all the fashion weeks combined. The house elects a different location each season, yet the same overwhelming sense of serenity is in the air, no matter where the show is held.

Miu Miu Fall 2014 Collection

Miu Miu Fall 2014 Collection: Thoroughly Modern Miu Miu

This season, Miu Miu had me at hello. Or was it Lupita Nyong’o who had me at hello? I have to admit I was distracted by her presence as we settled into the show; she is such a flawless, chic, and modern beauty! Speaking of muses and modernity, Miuccia had to have been inspired by the new Oscar winner and Miu Miu model…

Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 Collection

Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 Collection: Quiet Riot

No pressure or anything for Nicolas Ghesquière. He was only granted the task of taking the reins at one of the most prestigious French houses in the world, in time for Fall 2014. Not that the beloved Ghesquière, he of much-praised Balenciaga fame, doesn’t come with quite a pedigree. But any time there’s a shift in power and a change in creative direction, one must tread carefully.

Valentino Fall 2014 Collection

Valentino Fall 2014 Collection: Rome is Where the Art Is

I say this with confidence: When it comes to mastery of the craft and virtuosity of divine execution, Maria Grazia and Pierpaolo are unparalleled. In a most emotional Fall 2014 show, the pair made their inspiration felt by each and every onlooker: unconventional women deeply rooted in a moment of change.
