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…

Dior Fall 2019

I loved  Dior’s Fall 2019 collection’s embellished skirts, many on tulle with butterfly motifs made of feathers, sequins, and print overlaid with sheer black wave textured fabric. The black and white ink print dress  and contrast dot and gingham skirt were also charming.  I  felt as if the gingham flannel jackets, hats, coats and skirts-…

Moschino Fall 2019

The show stealer this season: object bags! The collection expanded upon previous spray paint and Fresh cologne bottles and phone cases to include bags that look like Windex, toothpaste, champagne, slot machine, cash register, hair spray, a blow dryer, dish soap, a quarter, and an iron…I love the campy ironic and nostalgic aesthetic Jeremy Scott…

Vivienne Westwood Fall 2019: Fashion Protest

Vivienne Westwood’s Fall 2019 runway show was all about graphic protest through fashion, although Vogue’s Luke Leitch’s review was more a protest of the protest than a review…he discussed literally nothing shown but rather complained about being sold clothes while being “preached” to about sustainability. Sustainability and pollution in the fashion industry is not about…

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…

Simone Rocha Fall 2019

Simone Rocha Fall 2019 proved the house has designers that know what they’re doing- who can manipulate satin to that extent and not have it look overworked? Triple layered sheer coats with secondary contrasting color and lapels beneath, sheer overdresses, a stunning sheer black and red fabric skirt, and use of weaved contrast and self…

Coach 1941 Fall 2019

The Coach 1941 Fall 2019 collection was a youthful interpretation of 50’s and Western influences with fringe platform creepers and a fresh take on moccasins; checkered polos, plaid shirts and matching sheer pants; coats with western flare yokes; vibrant colors including blues, lime green, fuchsia, and aquamarine contrasting wine, deep brown, and black; the fabric…

Dion Lee Fall 2019

Dion Lee Fall 2019 presented amazing undulating knits contour with the body, curving around the shoulders, weaving under and over pieces of the top, revealing slight glimpses of skin through keyholes; jackets with cutouts revealing corsets; a cutout dress fits perfectly together with a turtleneck shrug; uniquely curved vining in tops was an interesting take…

Sies Marjan Fall 2019

Sies Marjan Fall 2019 combined menswear tailoring with the most feminine and light hand, juxtaposing a navy leather suit with an off the shoulder trench; softly darted key lime suit jacket and relaxed trousers; double layered emerald silky satin top with gathered collar, sleeve cap, and waist; and floor length black dress seemingly in a…
