Fendi's creative director Karl Lagerfeld is clearly looking to elevate the athleisure trend with a sleek, sporty "working-girl" look.
For the initiative’s second iteration, Prada has invited three female architects — Cini Boeri, Elizabeth Diller and Kazuyo Sejima — to each develop a unique item by using Prada's iconic nylon material.
In 1982, "The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook" was published, solidifying the look of the British upper class as exemplified by one Diana Spencer, future Princess of Wales: Plenty of silky blouses, mid-length skirts and ladylike kerchiefs. Karl Lagerfeld and the Fendi team must have dusted off ...
In a span of five weeks, hundreds of fashion shows and presentations were held around the world in New York, London, Milan and Paris. Additionally, there were plenty of awe-inspiring moments, with the biggest one being at Versace, where Donatella Versace paid a major model tribute to her late brother, Gianni Versace, during the finale of her show. At Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld continued to astound show goers by creating a mind-boggling life-sized waterfall inside the Grand Palais.
A look at all the most memorable dresses from Milan Fashion Week, as well as London and New York.
The must-have bags, hats, and other accessories seen on the New York Fashion Week runways for spring/summer 2018.
One trend that you can actually try today is pajamas as ready-to-wear. PJ sets in bright, colorful prints were on various runways, from Emilio Pucci to Etro and Blumarine.
Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Helena Christensen recreated a famous 1994 Versace ad campaign shot by Richard Avedon — with a 2017 twist.
The Fendi Spring 2018 collection was full of sheer striped pieces, but the standout look may have been the models' teal hair.
The most-coveted boots for fall are none other than Saint Laurent‘s sparkling, rhinestone-covered, glitter-tastic boots from its fall 2017 show.
A blizzard in NYC dumped a foot of snow all over both the streets and fashion editors’ footwear plans. This is your winter-dressing inspiration for the year.
“What can be called ‘new’ in clothing?” Yves Saint Laurent asked an Elle reporter in 1971, after the release of what critics deemed a tasteless retrospective. “From peplum to stockings, everything has been done and redone a hundred times.” Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, the founders and creative heads of Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana, did more than pay tribute to their archives; they recycled parts of them in their most recent runway show. Three of the dresses presented during the Feb. 26 Milan Fashion Week event had already been shown on the D&G runway — 12 years ago.
Three cities down and on to Paris we go! After five days of shows and presentations in Milan it’s time to say arrivedecci — but first, a look at the trends that defined the week. Milan has always felt a little stuck in a time warp and mainly because of their classic craftsmanship and the quality of the goods they produce but this time, I am talking about Milanese’s taste in music. The music at so many shows was a straight up throw back to the 80s, from The Cure “Friday I’m in love” at Alberta Ferretti, Pat Benatar’s “We are Young” at No.21, Tiffany’s “I think we’re alone now” at Attico, to Patsy Kensit’s “I’m not scared” at Blumarine, Milan has been all about the throw back rather than the future.
After its influencer-filled show for menswear, Dolce & Gabbana is back with another tactic, no doubt focused on bringing in millennial eyes. What is more effective at bringing in teenage girls than social media influencers? Justin Bieber. Welcome to the Italian brand’s latest scheme.
“The Versace woman is just 100% hot,” said Adwoah Aboah before Friday’s show in Milan. For Fall 2017, the Versace woman is also monogrammed, stilettoed, and sporting Manic Panic hair extensions in neon streaks of orange, blue, red, and canary yellow. The effect was haute couture jabs Hot Topic, and it was actually superfun.
No one said fashion is original, at least not this season. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find a designer who presented a fall 2017 collection that didn’t pull inspiration from a well-known piece of pop culture.
Hailey Baldwin didn’t walk today’s Prada show, but her influence was still weirdly felt on the runway. That’s because 10 models wore crocheted bikinis during today’s show, evoking Baldwin’s infamous swimsuit shots with Justin Bieber. Of course, knit swimwear isn’t just clickbait — it’s a classic ’70s style that riffs on rock festivals and beach communes. But thanks to Instagram’s steady takeover of the human psyche, it’s where our minds immediately zoomed. Alas, these tops are for fall 2017, which means you might not be able to get them until the tail end of beach season in August. ...
Kendall Jenner walks the Moschino Fall/Winter 2017 show in Milan on Feb. 23. Carrie Bradshaw had put a bird on her head, but Kendall Jenner just beat her: She opened the Moschino show wearing a UPS crate as a hat.
Just days after making her debut on the Yeezy runway, Halima Aden is booking major gigs at Milan Fashion Week.
