Tom Ford Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear SS2018 New York

The spring summer collection Tom Ford presented was a classic one: the calculated decadence we know so well from Ford, rendered in a split between athletic-derived sportswear and power-woman goddess gowns. Crossover of athletica into the primary daywear vernacular aside, Ford loves tailored polish. He opened with a bold-shouldered pale pink satin tuxedo jacket over a liquid metallic top and short-shorts, rolled at the hem. Unlike the old Gucci days when he worked the daylights out of a single look, here he offered options, some approachably chic, others challenging to all but the most secure of attitude and body image: classic pantsuits, dressed-up dark denim, short leather trenches and racy jumpsuits. One, a long, backless drink of water in white crepe, rang the bell of a long-ago Gucci dress with a cutout abdomen. An infusion of wit came in an only Tom take on the twinset: slouchy chain mail shoulder bag and matching briefs worn with a louche pale pink top. As for the eveningwear, strong shoulders and sequined sleeves transported classic draping from ethereal to aggressive, as glam as it gets.

The takeaway was of familiar audacity. Ford believes genuinely in the transformative power of clothes.

It didn’t come easily. To replicate the original getups, Ford wanted old-school tube socks, to the knee, but his staff came up empty — today’s versions hit midcalf. Someone then thought to cut the sock foot into a thong, thus extending the overall length. Tailored tube socks. Aspiration realized takes many forms.

Knock knock! Who is it? The most stylish man in Italy. And he’s wearing everything you need to know (and want to have) for coming season. Cause it’s Men’s Fashion Week (yes, we cheer for that!!) There’s an entire man squad making its way through Milano right now looking better than ever. And what can we say: this will make you want to update your closet sooner than later. Time to round up the 8 strongest looks from the catwalks.

Wether you go on a hiking trip, a walking tour, on safari or exploring a city, make you sure you look as fine as our Milanese men right here. The outdoor trend is presumably started by Versace. You no longer have to be ashamed wearing nylon zip-ups, backpacks, athletic leggings and a good ‘crocodile hunter’ hat. That’s the way to go. Also seen at: Moncler, Prada.

Three’s a trend: enter the modern journeymen. The idea that traveling is all about comfort and ease, no, we’re not taking it anymore. You have to look good while exploring the world, and that’s even possible in a suit. And how obvious can it be with Prada shirts covered with hand-drawn symbols of world travels. You better book that ticket fast. Also seen at:  Missoni, Marni.

Just like last season, blue is still the rage. And we’re not just meaning blue, but REAL eye catching cobalt blue. It’s one of the strongest and coolest colours for men, but it’s up to you how to dispense it. If you want to go all the way, your permission lays here in Milano. Just ask Salvatore Ferragamo, Valentino, Vivienne Westwood or Dsquared.

Definitely not just a trend for the ladies, but also the gents got tied up this time. And the proof is here in front of you: Versace, Valentino, Ferragamo, and Fendi all showed men wearing tailored coats and jackets with a cinched waist.

What makes the man? Definitely the suit. What makes a dandy? Same answer. But that doesn’t mean the definition of smart tailoring isn’t fluid. And if you thought so, now you know it’s not. And it’s more clear than ever. The chapter of the art of proportions isn’t finished yet. We still got some pages to turn. The interplay of tailoring, sports and casualwear is rebalancing, playing with new proportions, streamlined details and well-defined shapes. Seen at: Sisters by Sibling, Jil Sander, Marni.

It may not rain that often in Milan, but we spotted a lot of raincoats on the catwalk. Showing you the best gear to ride out the storm and survive the rainy days or quick showers after a hot summer day. Make sure you have a light weighted parka or flashy (silver) raincoat by hand as your perfect battle armour.Seen at: Prada, Versace.

One of the most talked about words in 2015 was ‘gender’, or better said: gender fluidity. Something that not only started by celebs like Kristen Steward and Miley Cyrus, but also the fashion industry is one of the biggest players in this game changing development. And it shows again this season, with men wearing female-considered items like furry coats, flower print jackets and glitter tops.
Seen at: Dsquared, Fendi, Diesel by Gold.

The billion dollar fashion industry may be quite serious on the financial front, but let’s not forget it’s mostly about the fun wearing the clothes. Otherwise the designers will help remind you this. Seen at:  Dolce&Gabbana, Dsquared.

Max Mara Catwalk Fashion Show Milan Womenswear SS2014

The Max Mara show opened with a slipdress and matching topper in a pale neutral, the first of many of these monochromatic “twin sets,” as the show notes called such combos. The collection had a minimalist, urbane mission; a cashmere head scarf was the only homespun touch in a quietly show.

Besides those roomy, buttonless coats other sleek options included double-face cashmere camisoles, mannish jackets, trim culottes and pencil skirts, and streamlined rompers and jumpsuits with boxy, T-shirt-shaped tops.

With colors grounded in pearly shades, variation came via the fabrics and textures: linens robust and in handkerchief weights; smooth leather; mottled denim-looking canvas; buy now viagra sheer knits, and silver and gold lamé.

Besides the creme colors vivid jewel tones showed up changing the allure and impact of the same silhouettes.

Proenza Schouler Catwalk Fashion Show New York Womenswear SS2014

Like many of this week’s collection Proenza Schouler breathed serenity and a sense of pureness. Inspired by mid-century furniture designers (and with ‘domesticity’ as a theme) Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough presented a nature inspired selection of looks of which the designers’Resort collection viagra pfizer canada turned out to be a small preview. Created in neutrals like cream, clay, navy and white they sent highly elegant designs down their runway. Like suede tops, pants and dresses, like luxurious coats with special turnlock closures. Like structured tops and dresses with a low V-line, as well as glamourous pleated lame skirts. A furlike coat stood out from the crowd and the one print for spring was black with a white paint roller effect to it. Cropped tops once again proved to create a strong look, especially in the mix of those long and lean looks. Bronze nature-inspired necklaces fit in with the collection’s theme. How far you can get with a theme that might appear so dull at first…

Narciso Rodriguez Catwalk Fashion Show New York Womenswear SS2014

Modern, clean, simple but interesting; that’s Narcisco Rodriguez for upcoming spring/summer. The designer introduced the “half-skirt”, which had indeed (slightly) more body than the mini and sounds more sophisticated too. Furthermore the collection was a celebration of perfect cuts and simplicity. Yet while his designs might have looked simple, Rodriguez’ construction was anything but that. Shift dresses, skirts and sheer tops were composed of lots of different geometric pieces sown together. This giving the designs an extra graphic/architectural layer as well as the option of having multiple textures and prints in one single piece. Yet no matter how complicated that blending process might have been in the workroom, on the runway the fabrics seemed to have just melted right into each other, resulting in show stopping yet sober creations. Towards the end Rodriguez even introduced, what he referred to as ‘a new kind of lace’; detailed, silver shaded, lacy, floral printed fabrics bonded to the silk background of a few slip dresses. The result? A minimalistic viagra buy india success collection, created with the maximum amount of precision and passion.

Michael Kors Catwalk Fashion Show New York Womenswear SS2014

His latest collections might not all have been hits, but for s/s2014 Michael Kors is back on track. The American designers sent out a perfect collection of wearable designs for a walk in the park on the first day of spring as well as for those mid summer hot NYC rooftop parties. He described the designs as “romantic but tailored”, which translated into soft, fluid tailoring with a focus on the waist. Forties and seventies were brought together in light printed flare dresses, high waisted shorts with neat shirts tucked into them and pencil skirts worn with python printed (leather) tops. Most girls looked office proof, yet thanks to the floral printed skirts (and matching bikini tops) they could be beach ready within minutes too. High slits and viagra on line canada low V-lines took the collection into evening wear, where sheer fabrics and small cut-outs made Kors’ women appear even more seductive. Leaf prints and a natural color palette ranging from white to green, and beige to navy were simple but perfect. Nothing too shocking or extremely progressive here, just beautiful clothes for the American (minded) woman.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Catwalk Fashion Show New York Womenswear SS2014

At the Marc by Marc Jacobs show boys and girls dressed alike in a variation of suits took us back to the eighties. Almost everything got a shiny touch, varying from metallic pieces (like a silver coat and a blue sequined jumpsuit) to shimmering silk designs (like a high waisted graphical red and white ensemble or a light blue silky suit) and sportive satin shorts and jackets. Flamelike figures and studded stars buy cheap viagra now even had a bit of a circus feeling to them, yet overall the vibe was sporty and relaxed. We’re curious to see just how flattering some of the fabrics will look on “real women”, but Marc will surely have some less extreme, afforable pieces ready for his large fanbase.

Phillip Lim Catwalk Fashion Show New York Womenswear SS2014

Inspired by mother nature Philip Lim came up with a boxy, stiff, clean and powerful collection. He for instance used Geodes (rocklike minerals with colorful crystals on the inside) as an inspiration, embroidered on sheer sweatshirts, printed on silk designs and (less obvious) visible in the shimmering details of several mexico viagra no prescription sleeveless metallic pieces. Sober, minimalistic pieces (like white shaded boxy dresses, blouses and skirts) and busy printed or embroidered items (like printed leather jackets with tie dye effects or fringed details) were mixed into a well-balanced collection. A surprising yet fresh color palette of whites, pastels, olive green and navy blue just worked beautifully, especially with the shiny touches Lim added here and there. An ode to planet earth and something to look forward next spring!
