Louis Vuitton Fall 2015 #RTW #PFW

"For his first few outings at Vuitton, Ghesquière looked back in time to the 1970s to create a contemporary woman's wardrobe. But the tinge of retro that defined his earlier LV output was gone this season. This wasn't a knock-'em-dead collection, even if the fabulously furry brushed sheepskin coats that opened the show qualified as such, but it suggested that Ghesquière has settled in enough to find his own unique path forward. Once more for the former Balenciaga designer that means embracing the future. 'The exploration went a bit further,' be said backstage. 'There's style a certain respect of the patrimony, but also of technology, [which is] what I like.' On the runway itself, the pieces that channeled the future most brightly were the second-skin ribbed knits; with their cutouts above the bust and their fluted cuffs and hems, they were as efficient as uniforms. Metallics abounded. On a silvery silk pantsuit worn with a logo tee. On a glinting dress with the puffed, mutton sleeves that were one of the show's distinguishing features. In straight-up shoppability terms, this collection looks primed to be Ghesquière's most accessible so far." -

Alexander McQueen Fall 2015 #RTW #PFW

"On the catwalk tonight Sarah Burton offered up the purest distillation of that she called 'the spirit of the rose,' a flower that begins with a tight bud that opens into a lush bloom and then eventually collapses back onto itself in gorgeous decay. This show trod that same path, structure to dissolution, just like nature itself. The show notes said it better: 'the frayed nature of reality and the beauty of imperfection.' Imperfection can seldom have looked more beautiful than with models embracing, painter, Egon Schiele's twisty, fraught intensity that echoed throughout the collection. Here, it all worked in an appropriately weird way. Weird, as in the paper-thin leather that was bonded to a floral jacquard for a black trouser suit and a pink coat. Or the leather, bot so paper-thin, that was intarsia-ed into crystal-pleated bustier dresses. Or the shredded patent that made glossy puddles on top of the silk coats at the beginning of the show. Or in the distressed lace gowns that closed the presentation in the shroud of silk threads, echoing the hair with which Lee McQueen once lined his jackets. There are few designers more familiar with such a sensation that Sarah Burton. And it's perhaps her familiarity with the feeling that could inspire a dress as simply ravishing as the cloud of tiered chiffon ruffles that evoked a blood-red rose on the brink of blowsy-ness. Truly, the beauty of imperfection." -

Valentino Fall 2015 #RTW #PFW

"A fashion face-off of epic proportions occurred in Paris today. Derek Zoolander and Hansel, aka Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, made cameos at the tail end of the Valentino show, each doing his best 'Blue Steel.' Judging by the audience's reaction, Zoolander 2, is going to be a Very. Big. Movie. But even without the crowd-pleasing surprise appearances, this would've been a memorable Valentino show, long on Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli's signature dresses, but rendered in such exquisite new ways you fell in love all over again. 

More often than not, Chiuri and Piccioli go to their Italian origins for inspiration. For Fall they looked at Emilie Flöge and Celia Birtwell, two women who were both artists and muses. The new perspective energized them. But there was much more at play here, from the casual new vibe of oversize fisherman knit sweaters worn with A-line midi skirts to the sensual efficiency of silk crepe dresses unadorned but for some subtle contrast piping. It's a testament to Chiuri and Piccioli's talents and experience that they're as adept at an understated tie-neck blouse and wide-lip culottes, or an away-from-the-body black dress panelled in tonal strips of leather, as they are at their lovely evening wear. Inevitably, though, it's the gowns that get the attention. There were too many knockouts here to mention them all." -

Chanel Fall 2015 #RTW #PFW

"It wasn't exactly a love letter - Karl Lagerfeld is much too savvy for sentiment - but the Chanel collection he showed today was, he conceded, 'a vision of France from a stranger who thinks France is not that bad.' So you could almost construe Lagerfeld's last three ready-to-wear collection for Chanel as an uncynical celebration of French banality: the supermarché, the manifestation, and now, the brasserie. The Brasserie Gabrielle, to be exact. The Grand Palais, the grandest exhibition space in le tout Paris, was turned into the kind of all-day, leather-banquette-ed winer-and- diner you can find on almost and street corner in Paris.

But the original idea came from a place of love, so the stumble was easily overlooked. Especially because the collection itself was the strongest RTW showing from Chanel in a while. It had a sturdy base. The whole show was staged on a single style of shoe, a toe-capped, mid-heeled slingback-ringard in local parlance, because it is so bourgeois, but Lagerfeld loved the poise, the confidence, the ease of walking it gave his models. And that degree of comfort with bourgeois dress codes stabilised a collection that spiralled in a dozen directions. There were at least 97 looks - that's a he playground - but there was enough tweed to restore Chanel to its core." -
