“You have to commit,” he said firmly, as he described the process that determined the character of his new collection. “It was finished in summer, the look was done, the image was there three weeks before Christmas.”
“The collection is for a woman who uses words, both for their poetry and their violence,” explained Mouret backstage. “And in music, I am attracted to people who don’t hesitate to open their mouths.”
“Make it electric,” said new designer Adrien Caillaudaud. “She is a nice Parisienne, but now we want to give her a nice twist, to electrolyze her.”
Manish Arora wants people to know that “winter is coming”
Julien Dossena has done it again. His fall/winter 2015 show for Paco Rabanne was another considered, sporty chic lineup that put an accent on new volumes, impressive fabric developments and novel disk dress updates.
Ostensibly this show was meant to be a celebration of Paris as a global melting pot of cultures, races and religions. A cosmopolitan capital city that embraces all and refuses nothing.
“Fashion is a human story,” he insisted, “an industry that makes things with its hands. High tech stole the glamour of fashion.”

At Lemaire, rebranded last January to sole moniker of its eponymous founder, it was so. The work of Christophe Lemaire, its languidly ascetic purity, always eschewed any blatant displays, removed sentimentality and promoted a form of restraint. That was still the case, evident in the way an overcoat enveloped the silhouette or in the restrained palette of urban neutrals, in black, blues and creams.
At Cédric Charlier’s show on Wednesday, the designer had one of the chicest actresses of her generation sitting in the front row. Charlotte Rampling, with her hooded gaze that gave nothing away, took in the designer’s colorful and sporty collection and was the first to congratulate Charlier backstage afterwards.
“I was looking to create a pure and sporty line that defined a silhouette that is active and ergonomic. A shape that fits with our times,” said Charlier about his intent for fall/winter 2015 offering.
“Tension,” said (apparently utterly un-tense) Yang Li after his Fall show: “It was absolutely about tension.” Tension is a positive force? “You have to destroy to create.” Ah, that old chestnut. Then what was he destroying today? “Well, with my hands, in the lineup, I was destroying the clothes.”
“I find beautiful what happens after.”
The first outfit and the last told the story of Dries Van Noten’s exquisite new collection. “Grounded glamour” was his theme, and from the moment Lia Pavlova stepped out on the runway (it truly qualified for that designation, stretching the entirety of a magnificent salon in the Hôtel de Ville), Van Noten’s intentions were clear—and his aim was true.
“It was all different woman,” said Van Noten after the show.

“Music is liquid architecture; architecture is frozen music.” Continuing Goethe’s thought, you could posit that fashion is the stopgap that puts architecture back in movement. For their first show in Paris, Each x Other chose the Palais de Tokyo’s Yoyo. In this perfect backdrop for the art-meets-fashion brand founded by Jenny Mannerheim and Ilan Delouis, the words of Robert Montgomery blazed out from the back wall.
What stood out on the Devastée runway today is how well Ophelie Klere and François Alary know fabric. The devoré pattern of an intarsia knit, with Monster Munch-like smiley faces in a minute houndstooth standing out on a cream background, made that eminently clear. A monochrome palette highlighted textures just exactly, while the happy gloom of their motifs traced their way throughout.
“Je suis un sauvage et je connais pas d’autre façon de vivre,” sing-sang a childish voice with lines picked from chief Si’ahl’s 1854 address. Unlike previous seasons, there was a raw intensity here that belied the levity of models padding around barefoot.
MILAN, ITALY. MARCH 2, 2015 – Milan Fashion Week F/W 2015 RTW Day 6 is running, here we bring you the best runways for you to enjoy and check at the new trends for Fall Winter in Ready-to-Wear.

Instead of doing their typical theatrical staging background, designers Dean and Dan Caten went minimal. Crafting a monolithic wall out of what appeared to be marble and inserting into it a stone staircase. The duo didn’t want to give anything away, not even via one of their traditionally playful show notes. Not that you ever really needed them, as each season’s theme was usually self-evident as soon as the first model hit the catwalk.
Accessory lovers will have a field day with all the tribal-embellished handbags, furry strappy heels and fur accent pieces.
The one thing that really had the audience buzzing at the Giorgio Armani show, which marked the end of Milan Fashion Week, was the pants. The designer came up with a trouser silhouette that looked original, odd and undeniably appealing.
He morphed a wrap front skirt into slim pants that were constructed so that the hem of the skirt grew out from the knees of the trousers to swathe the waistline. It was a silhouette that could hide a multitude of sins.

This was a streamlined show that had a razor sharp precision to its execution. The effect was achieved by Castiglioni’s clever choice to use thick fabrics that she then placed, almost like paneling, over the models’ bodies.
Dolce & Gabbana Winter 2016 Womens Fashion Show was inspired by The Mother, the heart of the family.
The Designers had a very intimate and personal approach when creating this collection, because the image of the mother that inspired them, comes from their own memories as children and they explored it from an aesthetic point of view. The collection is very sensual, but at the same time iconic of the DNA of Dolce & Gabbana.
“The leather lace was made exclusively for us and it is interesting because it is a spirograph. The whole collection is made in Italy — all our stuff is — from the sweatshirts to the embroidery,” Giorgetti told backstage, adding that patchwork was a fundamental aspect.
“There is intricate wool patchwork and patchwork of furs like astrakhan,” he added.
Ferragamo isn’t a brand bothered by trends. Massimiliano Giornetti, its creative director, has been steering in a classic but not conservative direction of late—call it minimal-ish—after earlier, glitzier collections.
“I really felt the need to go to essentialism and purity,” she said backstage before her show today. “Let’s call it neo-minimalism, because of this cultural too-much that I am breathing at the moment. Too much information, too much stimulation.”
The Au Jour Le Jour woman is clearly growing up—or whatever playing the disco queen means. “It is a natural process,” said designers Mirko Fontana and Diego Marquez backstage. “As we are growing up ourselves, we want the collection to evolve. This season, for instance, we avoided our trademark overblown prints and went for a personal take on glamour.”

Vivetta’s fall/winter woman seems to have a treasure chest of heirlooms at home that includes antique brocade textiles, evening gowns from the ’60s and surrealist artwork, all of which she has mixed-and-matched and altered to fit into her own eclectic taste.
Houndstooth print played protagonist at the Ermanno Scervino fall/winter women’s show in Milan. Deconstructed into hashtag-like stars onto mink and available in several different macro and micro sizes on the stage, the Tuscan designer played with the pattern’s casual sartorial spirit, downplaying an otherwise ultra-elegant array of ready-to-wear.
“I love playing with the identity of gender, never calling it into question,” Scervino said. “My woman is always feminine when she is wearing a masculine overcoat. It can be perfect to enhance her seductiveness.”
The lighting at the Roberto Cavalli show on Saturday illuminated exactly the path the brand needs to walk if it wants the investment deal with the private equity firm Clessidra to go through.

“We are taking the collection in an ever more chic direction which is always more elegant and more refined,” Anna Molinari told backstage, adding that fall/winter was full of couture elements — furs in a soft pastel color palette were like roomy sweaters, the lamé plissé skirts bore expansive trains, flowers stitched on to transparent silky bodices had a Murano-glass look and the magnetic metallic stitching of the evening gowns emphasized a sense of movement that was felt throughout the show.
It was a nice surprise to see the designer use his Emporio Armani collection to explore vibrant color blends and more voluptuous silhouettes.
The more effortlessly chic of the Max Mara orbit of brands, Sportmax unleashed an Italian “buttero” cowgirl-meets-Cherokee-maiden look of a collection for fall/winter 2015.
“Today you saw my energetic side, the funny one,” Valli told backstage where models were cheering his name and buyers and fashion decision-makers were clamoring for double air kisses.
“With Giamba, I feel happy because I can bring something fun and more personal and energetic and young,” Valli added.
“It is fun to have red carpet looks and do haute couture for Rihanna you know…This is also so refreshing. I love contrast,” Valli said.
Veronica Etro looked inward for the inspiration for her fall/winter 2015 collection. No, she didn’t put her psyche on display. Rather, she turned to the world of interiors and textiles for the home, an area the brand has excelled in almost since its start in 1968, to create a show that was appealing and inviting.
“I call it maximalism in control,” said Etro backstage before the show. “It is very rigorous and severe in its shapes, very clean. But at the same time it’s very eclectic and eccentric,” explained the designer.
“There is a sense of reality to this collection,” said designer Marco de Vincenzo. “Everything needs to be wearable without losing their sense of specialness.”

The Max Mara team landed on a perfect muse for Fall: Marilyn Monroe circa the pictures that photographer George Barris took of her on the beach in 1962.
The Blugirl fall/winter 2015 collection unfolded with an air of top-of-the-class, youthful success.
Les Copains new creative director, gave the international fashion crowd a tutorial, in an Italian signora sort of way, on how the right accessories can upgrade any outfit. In this case, how rhinestone earrings, blinding necklaces and Art Deco-inspired dragonfly brooches can parlay wool knitwear into gala-fit evening wear.
Model Doutzen Kroes, awash in a stark white oversized peacoat and headband, kicked off the Fendi show with a sense of artistic purism — symbolic of a break from the confines of massified trends.
Architectonic and paneling techniques were splashed onto fur patterns, prints and complex leather combos and even footwear and accessories.
With news that Roberto Cavalli is getting closer to sealing a deal with Clessidra, its 20s set Just Cavalli label held back on the usual circus of shock and awe.
Cristiano Burani, the designer that took home the 2012 “New Name in Italian Fashion” award, has since settled into his own skin. For his fall/winter 2015 women’s show, he packed the Royal Palace’s Sala Cariatidi with Italian glitterati and fashion decision makers.
Inside the isolating industrial metal boxes that made up the Prada set this season, designer Miuccia Prada let germinate a delightfully girly collection filled with pastel-hued pieces that reveled in their sugar sweet innocence.
Jeremy Scott went a little bit Looney Tunes with his fall/winter 2015 Moschino show. But this is a designer who loves to put a playful twist on archetypal attire and get his kook on by creating clothing that taps into sunny side nostalgia.
This season Scott looked to the hip hop styles of the ’80s for his starting point.

“The trick is to change the theme every time and of course the silhouettes,” she told backstage. “We started out with Africa and in this collection, there aren’t any African references. There is an evolution in terms of genre and volumes and there is much more of a masculine aspect that I think really highlights the underlying sense of femininity,” she added.
“The themes were played out in a kitsch way in order to render the collection credible and to balance out the classic,” Jean added.
She just introduced a more focused attention to the “practical” needs of her posh clientele, injecting a good dose of tailoring and adding more substantial and masculine fabrications like loden, gray flannel, vicuña wool, and tweed to her signature über-feminine look
“I love the idea that a dress has a memory,” Michele said.
The backdrop of Alberta Ferretti’s presentation was stunning: a time-lapse sunrise in wintry woods. New day rising. What a gorgeous, optimistic point for a fashion show to start.
Nobody has visions like Fausto Puglisi does. He’s always loved the brazen mix, but with his part-punk, part-regal, and entirely over-the-top mash-up, he out-Puglisi’d himself tonight. It was entirely intentional.
Scognamiglio has operated on the borders of Milan fashion week for at least a decade, never quite making it big despite the fact that the guy cuts some of the best pants in town.

For this solid collection, Eudon Choi evoked the cartoonishly reductionist Japanese version of brutalism that is Metabolism, referring specifically to the capsules of the Nakagin Tower in Tokyo.
Daniela Felder, one half of the Felder Felder sibling design team, said after this Obermaier-homage show: “Half the time she was basically naked; it was all about the liberation of the woman. Back then it was a shock, women showing their bodies, but today less so.”
Globalized 21st-century Daks is massive in Korea and designed by Filippo Scuffi. And in the context of now, he is doing an excellent job.
Sass & Bide show marked the debut outing for the label’s new creative director, Anthony Cuthbertson. A former consultant for Victoria Beckham and Mulberry, Cuthbertson made his second order of business in taking the Sass & Bide helm elevating the clothes, a priority keenly felt in this collection’s focus on embellishment and luxe fabrication.

Today, West was sitting front-row, worshipping at the Ralph Lauren church. It was his first time seeing the designer’s show in person. He picked a good one.
Mendel, like many designers feeling the ’70s this season, used skinny scarves as a styling prop, like the black embroidered version tied around the waist of a lingerie-inspired jumpsuit.
The clothes spoke to that as well: a sexy, elegant sort of glamour girl who parties at the swankiest clubs all night but has done it enough to be up, alert and seductive as she makes her way through the next day.
