Vivetta Fall 2019

Jeepers Kreepers…why’d they cut out peepers? Jeepers kreepers…hats just don’t need eyes. Vivetta presented questionable, plagiarized, and brilliantly conceived and executed designs for Fall 2019. While I hate the peephole hats and poor copy of Jeremy Scott’s teddy bear designs, I found the embellished florals with Lilly of the Valley appliqué absolutely remarkable.

Gucci Fall 2019

Gucci Fall 2019 mixed goth with victorian era and 50’s styled with a touch of horror to put on a sumptuous show slithering with snake skin, leather, spiked collars and masks, weird ear pieces, all contrasting the light flowing sheer chiffon, silk, lamé, complete with cravats and frill. Those green skin pants with the mustard…

Prada Fall 2019

Prada Fall 2019 killed it in the boot department- those combat boots with and without straps and pouches are to die for solely for the sole. I’m sure the shades will look great on some and ridiculous on most, but they’re unique and cool nonetheless. The prints and appliqués definitely made the garments pop off…

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.

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…

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…

Labyrinth: 3D Fashion Show Spring/Summer 2019 SS18

3D fashion show inspired by the 50’s, unrequited love and yellow flowers (tabebuia), love and heartbreak. Butterflies and Moths translated into literal and abstract prints, with some pattern pieces and garments mirroring the shapes of the wings, as well as appliques. I chose to embody the different styles that came out of the fifties, the sock hoppers, greasers, beatniks and the glamour evoked by old Hollywood.I chose to embody the different styles that came out of the fifties, the sock hoppers, greasers, beatniks and the glamour evoked by old Hollywood.

Fendi Pre-Fall 2018

A witchy western vibe resonates with fifties glamour throughout the Fendi Pre-Fall 2018 collection, which features sheer black chiffon tops with Bishop sleeves; scooped, plunging, boat, and bishop necklines; velvet and leather skirts; pleated floral print and golden rod skirts; raspberry gingham suiting; raspberry mint and black plaid fur-collared trench; and laser-cut notched-lapel black leather…

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…

Fendi Spring/Summer 2018

Fendi Spring/Summer 2018 featured striped chevron print off-the-shoulder dresses, a continuation of the bag and bag-accessory evolution with unique strap details including prints and frimge, cut-outs, sheared fur in intricate prints and textures, and an interesting use of fabric selection. Pointed and peep-toe heels were paired with plaid and striped stockings. Models were given blue…
