It’s Fashion Week season in world’s most fashionable capitals and it’s full on! With New York and London already in the bag and Milan and Paris to go, designers are bringing their best ready-to-wear concepts on the runway for Spring ’18.
Polished sportswear was present in the unexpected adrenaline rising motocross show for Fenty X Puma collection, something fresh to keep the guests’ attention engaged. The collection featured X Games and surf references taking the form of biker and scuba onesies, raincoats and swimsuits, all in bold electric colors.
Christopher Kane approached the ungendered kink, bringing to life designs worthy of a suburban perfect domestic wife with a naughty side, referencing British 80’s sexual scandals.
Diversity was celebrated once again, with Michael Kors keeping it simple for makeup and hair, models of all ages and ethnicities walking in Hawaii-meets-business outfits. Flowy fabrics in duo-chromatic shades with touches of sparkles were proposing a solution for any city woman’s problems: how do you dress for the heat without looking casual or sloppy?
Florals for spring: ”groundbreaking”, if we were to quote Miranda from The Devil Wears Prada. Brock Collection hasn’t disappointed their feminine public by depriving them from easy breezy florals, ruffles and ruching.
Alexander Wang sure knows how to throw a party. The #WangFest party bus took the models and guests to the runway show. The after-party was even more impressive, with fair-inspired props like a light-up pouch worn around the neck as a pass, an impressive artist line-up (A$AP Ferg, Ja Rule and Ashanti), all topped up with a Dunkin Doughnuts tower displaying every flavor imaginable. Definitely one of the most memorable FW after-parties.
Victoria Beckham takes it easy and brings up femininity, an idea we can see emerging throughout collections. Pastels, transparency, straight-fitted and androgynous silhouettes were part of the brand’s evolving vision of delicacy.
