For their first-ever holiday campaign, Salvatore Ferragamo’s Creative Director Paul Andrew teamed with Trey Laird and the crew at Laird + Partners to embrace difference and diversity. The result is a campaign entitled Patchwork…
Flowers in Spring? It’s groundbreaking. Designers had gardening on their minds for this season trend pairing bright floral prints with solid colors. They expanded their palettes from all different colors and types of flowers from the brightest and the boldest to the simple and minimalist.
Floral prints go hand in hand with Springtime and are brought out every year. From pastels to darks, designers like Dior Homme, MSGM, Versace, Louis Vuitton, and Valentino all incorporated flowers into their spring offering.
For Spring 2019, the collaboration between Lee Jeans and Cushnie is visible in an overtly chic advertisement nostalgic of ‘90s denim fashion. Photographer/director Emma Summerton brings the creative vision of…
There are plenty of houses for which the runways shows are but a simple excuse to showcase their accessories. Skim any luxury holding companies annual report and one will quickly discover that while most of the marketing is around ready-to-wear, the accessories are what really supports the house. More often than not up to 80% of the sales are generated from handbags and shoes.
This season handbags called up to carry that weight, with both Proenza Schouler and Jacquemus showcases handbags large enough to travel in. Newcomer Roberta Einer caught our attention with her bohemian needlework tweed together with oversized cording.
Balmain’s clear lucite handbag carrying trays served as a double entendre, holding a handbag and promoting the brand simultaneously. Alexander McQueen’s floral motifs caught our editor’s eyes as a seasonal standout that we expect plenty of other handbag lines to emulate, while Ottolinger’s Christa Bösch and Cosima Gadient mashed up genres, printed canvas, and trims to present a seasonal standout.
Of course Fendi, Burberry, Chanel, Prada, Dior, Valentino and Louis Vuitton continue to reinvent their core category with Neo-classical silhouettes complete with logos and monograms.
Here our AARB Magazine’s picks for the Top 50 Handbags of Spring 2019.
It looks as if designers are fed up with airline baggage fees this season. Who needs a suitcase when you can fit all you need in the clothes that you’re wearing?
Human luggage was abundant in men’s showing from London, Milan and Paris. Perhaps it was the evolution of utility wear, or perhaps streetwear packed for an overnight. Either way designers like Dsquared2, Lanvin, Off-White, Rick Owens, and Louis Vuitton all found comfort in providing storage options for ones comfort. The Impression is delighted with the trend that gives ‘carry on’ a whole new meaning. Now if we could just address those in-flight meals!
Distant and tropical lands were beckoning designers this season resulting in a bevy of landscape graphics taking over the runway….New TREND.
Suburban Simpson’s home pop-up at Virgil Abloh’s Off-White while neon camp trees populated printed tops and sweaters at Prada, Valentino, Amiri, MSGM, and Paul Smith. All signified a longing for a trip but none as fanciful as Virgil Abloh for Louis Vuitton men’s where the landscape was literally the yellow brick road from The Wizard Of Oz. We think it wise to pay close attention to the man behind the curtain.
