Rick Owens Fall 2019

Rick Owens Fall 2019 featured SFX Runway Makeup, beautiful silhouettes and lines accentuating the shoulders, and had a unique take on making use of different planes of the body in this Utilitarian craze we’re seeing this season. What with his publicity stunts in the past, it was easy to overlook his genius, and I’m glad…

Ann Demeulemeester Fall 2019

Ann Demeulemeester Fall 2019 combined menswear and tailoring, pushing the envelope with the construction- the overlaid contrast lapel, for example, was so uniquely original. Red silky satin brocade, black pinstripe and solid black suiting with contrast silk satin sleeves, and white shirting.  I love the proportions: the length of the vests, the sleeve cuffs, the…

Manish Arora Fall 2019

Manish Arora’s Fall 2019 collection really would benefit from editing because some of the garments and accessories are really cool but may be overlooked within the hoard of design splayed onto the runway: it’s an overdose of color, print, texture and fabric selection. The object bags are amazing- tea pots, sharks and fish, vehicles… The…

Saint Laurent Fall 2019

Can we all just be bio-luminescent in Saint Laurent Fall 2019 and live our best lives?  I NEED every freaking piece of menswear! Who cares if Saint Laurent is marching to the beat of its own drum, still on that same aesthetic from like four seasons ago? (…I said Four Seasons).  There was a multitude…

Anrealage Fall 2019

Anrealage Fall 2019 was like a PSA for garment care instructions, only it seems the models have shrunken in the dryer- not the clothes. We haven’t seen proportions like this since LFW years ago, although this collection takes it to a whole new level with avant-garde takes on oversized jackets, lapels, and buttons; giant patch…

Iceberg Does Disney

Iceberg’s Fall 2019 collection, a rather sporty one with neon colors contrasting black, featured Disney’s Cinderella and Snow White graphic sweaters.

Gabbana Goes Gangster Fall 2019

Dolce & Gabbana plays off the 50’s trend by personifying the gangsters of the era on the catwalk, complete with hats, menswear inspired double breasted suits, coats, tuxedos…some of which are reminiscent of Madonna’s 90’s style. It is a sharp tailored look- even the dresses take a bow to the menswear influence, with draped suiting…

Mary Katrantzou Fall 2019

Mary Katrantzou Fall 2019: she’s become one one of those designers whose prints and graphics stand out, and while I didn’t understand the “London look” when it comes to voluminous silhouettes and outlandish proportions in one of her collections years ago as well as this one’s few looks, I feel as if this is a…

Blackface Fashion Faux-Pas

Following Prada’s rather controversial monkey doll and it’s speedy removal from displays, Gucci missed the message and released a Blackface turtleneck. Somehow, Katy Perry managed to join in on the scandal, and created a pair of slippers. At first, I wasn’t too familiar with the imagery although remember learning about it in school, but at…

Grammys 2018 Red Carpet

The Grammy’s Red Carpet had more Worst than Best looks. The The Best Dressed: Lady Gaga in Céline because there weren’t many good looks. The Worst Dressed: Tayla Parx: oh…girl! Earth to Ricky Rebel…Trump is not a fan of any friend of Dorothy’s, click those heels and phone home. Early 2000’s Gaga doesn’t want this…
