At Akris, creative director Albert Kriemler showed a collection of precisely cut, monochromatic looks, many with textural, graphic motifs inspired by Russian artist Kazimir Malevich’s Suprematist works.
Shows at Fashion Week
Highlights from yesterday’s shows, including art-meets-fashion at Junya Watanabe, the new It shoes from Acne and Jean Paul Gaultier’s ready-to-wear dénouement.
There’s never a dull moment at a Junya Watanabe show. His cubist-inspired runway collection for spring may seem a little wacky at first glance, but if you look beyond the fantastical styling pieces, you’ll find cute striped tops, pleated skirts and other closet pleasers.
More from Paris! We’re excited to share two new emerging ideas that we love, evoking moods of yesteryear or a brave new world.
Vintage Lingerie: Inspired by the romantic past, beautiful lingerie shapes and details appear in modest victorian night gown dresses, delicate pretty blouses, skirts and slip dresses. Just so feminine. Perfection.
New Collar: Exciting new neck jewelry features clear lucite or natural crystals that make a real statement.
Welcome to Paris Fashion Week! Our first few shows have offered up fresh new takes on a couple of tried-and-true ideas.
Sport: The sport influence continues with athletic inspired silhouettes in high energy contrast and bold graphics or softened-up chic shapes with cute striped trims.
Stripes: Not for the fainthearted, these are bold, new lines that vary from chic, spice tones to seaside candy colors. We’re loving the play with multiple directions—from tiered layers to cut-and-paste sections.
Bonjour! The final week of fashion month kicked off in the City of Light yesterday with a lively show from Dries Van Noten.
As we reflect on the best from Milan, we see another city that’s offered huge variety—and something for everybody. It was a tough call to get down to just 10 of the best ideas, but here are the ones we think will be updating our wardrobes with new ways of dressing, materials and finishes.
1. ’70s Flashback
At Marni, the show opened with muted looks like a minimalist top and flowy pants cut from crinkled off-white fabric and cinched with a sweater-knit judo belt for a splash of contrast.
Designer Peter Dundas channeled the lavish and youthful heyday of the house of Pucci with a bevy of midcentury-inspired pieces. His usual artisanal touches like ornate embroidery and tantalizing fringe came loaded with ’60s charm.
Sometimes Fashion Weeks present a singular theme, and other times distinct contradictions. As customers, this gives us plenty of choice and options. Check out these cute spring offerings—it’s a sweeter, kitschier mood that’s lighthearted, decidedly girly and extremely fun!
