Versace Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear SS2018 Milan

“It’s a little bit crazy, because I feel like this is such an iconic show to walk in”, said Cindy Crawford’s 16-year old daughter Kaia Gerber backstage before the Versace show. And she sure was right about that. As soon as Donatella Versace and her 90’s supermodel squad (including Carla Bruni, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer and Helena Christensen) set foot on the catwalk the Versace show went viral. What a way to remember the fashion creative we lost twenty years ago. “A genius . . . an icon . . . my brother”, as Donatella stated.

And besides the supermodel reunion of women who walked the Versace show over two decades ago the SS2018 collection was of course filled with references to Gianni Versace’s designs. The prints came straight from the key prints in the Versace archives from the beginning of the nineties. Prints Donatella used on blouses, strong shouldered jackets, high waisted jeans, trenchcoats, maxi skirt, leggings and corsets. Accessorized with the fanny packs, caps and statement jewelry that pulled everything together.

Now we shouldn’t necessarily review this collection like we do others. Instead, we should see it as it was intented, an ode, a celebration of everything Gianni stood for. Designs that stand the test of times with a certain sexiness/coolness that makes the brand ‘hot’ even after all those years. Still, those pastel colored looks appeared highly desirable. And the rich styling (cross earrings, brooches and patches) certainly looked appealing. Then again, how could any item not look stunning shown by the likes of fashion favorties Gigi, Kendall and model newby, who’s now making all the headlines, Kaia.

Ralph Lauren Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear SS2018 New York

It was within the context of luxury cars (Porsches, Bugattis, Jaguars, Ferraris) that Ralph Lauren’s claim of connection between clothes and cars resonated. Unlike some of the cars, revolutionary when created in terms of design and performance, the clothes didn’t attempt reinvention. Rather they oozed the timeless chic in which Lauren believes deeply and which, as the surroundings indicated, has worked well. The show opened with the tony men’s wear fabrics he loves — mixed tweeds, checks and plaids. The extensive passage featured a women’s range of dressed-up (bustier over pants) and dressed-down (relaxed jacket, pants). Men’s looks included a re-fabricated motorcycle jacket over shirt and tie and a double-breasted coat belted over lumberjack plaid sweater.

DelPozo Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear SS2018 New York

The collection of Josep Font for DelPozo was inspired by the kitschy poolside glamour of Esther Williams and the music by Xavier Cuga. A retro world with soirees at the Waldorf Astoria. And without getting on the campy side of that world, Font came up with modern flamboyance, color and concept.
The models walked through the sunlit space at Pier 59 Studios in vivid combinations of red, white, pink, yellow and aqua blue with pert straw bow headpieces while the band Negro Helado, dressed in white tuxedos, performed throwback easy-listening tunes. Daywear was done in architectural shapes — sportswear in sculpted but minimal curves — in mostly ivory punctuated by a pop of fluorescent yellow or orange.

Font also let his imagination run wild with blown-out red paisley prints on a molded coatdress worn over aqua pants, or an aqua and white honeycomb sundress with a bright yellow strap and a wave of sculpted ruffles at the shoulder, hip and hem. There were rainbow-colored tulle gowns and a dress in blue, red and silver lame flowers with puffed tulle sleeves.

Fenty Puma by Rihanna Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear SS2018 New York

The set of Rihanna’s Fenty Puma show was a pair of pink sand dunes over which several BMX bikers flew in a series of aerial stunts. After last season’s show of schoolyard stereotypes and the 18th-century girly sport of the season before, Rihanna went in an entirely different direction with a hyper-athletic mash-up of surf, motocross, rock climbing and all things extreme sport.
There were windbreakers and biker shorts, hoodies, racing pants, and for the first time, swimwear. Everything was torqued with athletic straps and buckles and emblazoned with Puma branding as well as words like “wet” and “drowning” in fast, graphic fonts. The colors were classic sports-born combos of navy and hot pink, black and fiery red, pool blue and white and hunter green and navy. The tight stuff was tight, but there was oversized stuff too that had a current street flavor. Everything was styled to the nines with attitude and a sense of humor. And once again Rihanna managed to make athletica, one of the most widely mined concepts in current fashion, into a vibrant collection with a point of view that can hold its own.
