Fendi’s collection was clean and minimal as Karl Lagerfeld found himself inspired by the architecture on the Palazzo della CiviltÃ Italiana in Italy. The designerÂ incorporated a new way of structuring the skirts with leather panels and a neutral architectural palette.
Miuccia Prada describes her lastest collection asÂ sweet, but violent. PowerfulÂ pastels paired brilliantly alongsideÂ strong silhouettes making for a delicately styled,Â sophisticated wardrobe.
We’ve seen it all atÂ Moschino. McDonalds, Barbie, and Spongebob motifs have all hit the runway in eloquence under the helm of designer Jeremy Scott. This time around Scott channels the whimsical world ofÂ Â Looney TunesÂ as we’re transported back to theÂ late 90s and early 2000s. Â Layers of bling, baggy hoodies, and denim used in unconventional ways play wonderfully whileÂ graffiti doused gowns left us hanging with intrigue.
Just Cavalli was a visual wonderland of textile. Â A vibrant palette of burnt orange, deep plum, mustard yellow, and red-violets created an eclectic, emotional fall color spectrum. Silhouettes hinted toward the cool, rebellious days of the 70s and we were completely swept away.
Max Mara posed a question while implementing this collection: “What would Marilyn Monroe do?” Models sauntered down the runway sporting slightly undone hairstyle, cat eyed glasses and 90s inspired outerwear. The mood was elegant, yet daring with an extra bit of covert sex appeal.
