TREND FALL 2017: VELVET VIBES

The noble feel of velvet was captured in the Fall 2017 collections among various designers who are bringing a come back to the mystic look.

Altuzarra took a darker approach to the feminine mystic while Erdem went for more of a pastel tone, contrasting the heavy appearance of velvet. While Monse went for an even brighter color palette. Velvet was seen as head-to-toe looks and as accents on jackets, gloves, shoes, and handbags.

CRISTIANO RONALDO DENIM LINE

Cristiano Ronaldo is making another play in the fashion world. The world-famous soccer player has been designing men’s underwear for his label CR7 (and modeling it, too!) since 2013. But this spring, he’s covering up those sexy legs of his for his newest venture — a CR7 Denim line for men that launches on June 1st.

“In the past, I’ve really struggled to find premium denim that’s actually comfortable when you’re on the move,” the Portuguese athlete, 32, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “This is something that was really important to me when we started developing CR7 Denim. I wanted these jeans to be made to be lived in.”

“I’m a person that believes in constantly moving forward and progressing in life, both on and off the playing field,” he says. “And I believe that if you’re not truly comfortable, then you’re not truly living. CR7 is a brand for people that live by these same philosophies.”

“I love the skinny jeans, and we have a particular pair in a navy resin color with white paint splatter that have become my go-to,” he tells us of the style, shown below, which retails for $129.50. “I actually wore them in the brand campaign film, and haven’t been able to take them off since. There’s just something about these jeans that really fit my athletic build perfectly.”

ZIMMERMANN’S SPRING 2017 AD CAMPAIGN

DIY meets Eighties femininity in Nicky Zimmermann’s romantic spring 2017.Gone are the days of DIY for Nicky Zimmermann — as her brand has become a cult favorite with vintage- and beach-loving girls worldwide — and yet that didn’t stop her from taking her spring collection on a reminiscent journey back to Stranded, her and her friends’ club of choice in Sydney, Australia in the Eighties. “It’s kind of my take on the Eighties, because where I grew up was kind of isolated to the subcultures that were happening — it was a bit more parody,” she explained. In her show notes, she offered details: “We made everything ourselves; it was more about expressing yourself. We ripped up tutus, we stole dad’s shirts, found old pieces of lace. We tied, we tattered, tangled and frayed.”

What’s regularly remarkable about Zimmermann is the brand’s ability to produce high-quality, intricate workmanship while retailing at a sub-designer price point. One piece, a white lace and purply floral menagerie of wraps and tiers (essentially a souped-up prairie dress), was especially striking in terms of its construction. It also featured an off-the-shoulder element, which is proving to be quite trendy in the early stages of NYFW.
