Roberto Cavalli Pre-Fall 2018

The Roberto Cavalli Pre-Fall 2018 collection marks a shift in the brand’s visual style.  It seems that Paul Surridge, the new creative director (Vogue ’18), succeeds in taming the wild animal that is Cavalli and its prints- almost everything is salable, marketable, wearable.  There is a marked difference between this and recent Cavalli collections which really…

Fenty X Puma Spring/Summer 2018 SS18

Barbie met Tomb Raider in Fenty X Puma’s Spring/Summer 2018 runway show. The collection played on athleisure with a retro take on athleticwear: wind-breakers, track suits and shorts layered over cycling shorts, neoprine and diving suits turned catsuits, trendy off the shoulder dresses with long sleeves. The bad looks included the unflattering monokini- a maxi…

Rihanna X Manolo Blahnik “So Stoned”

Rihanna collaborates with Manolo Blahnik on “So Stoned” capsule of clear strap and heeled sandals ecrusted with large stones…it’s what a senior stripper might envision after. It’s funny but perhaps that dichotamy comes from the collaboration itself- young meets old, demure meets flashy…  I’m not sold on this collaboration- it’s granny trashy luxe- if riri…

KTZ Spring/Summer 2018

Chainmale- some made of soda can tabs, army green cargo pants and parkas- the later with graphic leather letter and arrow applique (omg, the matching socks: 🖤), knits gorgeously destroyed in a “trying too hard” kind of way, patches, the ever popular quilting, black boots with white paint platter…the KTZ Spring/Summer 2018 London Men’s Fashion…
