A new to us designer in a new to us city, although we must not have been paying attention because Cecilie Bahnsen has  already won her share of accolades and recognition having been a LVMH Prize finalist in the past.

Simply the best in Italian sportswear. 

A distinctly 70s vibe at Fendi where Silvia Venturini Fendi showed laminated trench coats, quilted separates and wrap dresses in luxurious suede and terry cloth. 

What do you get when you cross an ia favourite fashion house with an ia favourite sport? Stella Jean for Spring 2020.

Will denim ever be viewed as a luxury item? We don’t know but Lorenzo Serafini has made a very good attempt at answering that question with this collection. 

Thousands of column inches will be dedicated to this show undoubtedly the buzziest one of fashion month thus far.

If we had to sum this collection up in one word, that word would be “texture”.

Aptly, on the same of the day as the Global Climate Strike and as climate protests were held in cities around the world to demand that politicians treat climate change as a moral and ethical obligation rather than solely an environmental issue, Francesco Risso showed this exuberant collection that was based on a trip he had made to the Amazon six months ago.  

Elongated silhouettes were key at Jil Sander where models were often shown in the same colour from neck to ankle.

Suede patchwork and psychedelic patterns formed the basis of Alberta Ferretti’s collection.

Extreme weather conditions threw us off our fashion week recap schedule, but hopefully we can now get back on track as we head over to Milan. There was a real emphasis on suiting at Prada this season in the form of single- and double-breasted suits, jackets and skirts made in buttery soft leather. 

Delft pottery was the first thing to spring to mind (no pun intended) when we saw the gorgeous confections coming down the runway at Simone Rocha. The dresses that opened the show featured delicate blue and white floral designs that immediately evoked the style.

Fisherman chic from Margaret Howell who appeared to have chosen Steve Zissou as her muse.

Objectively we know the prairie look is huge at the moment but we are not 100% sure we are behind the trend yet. That being said, Alice Temperley has designed some of the best looking prairie dresses we’ve seen this season.

Really simple but pretty collection from Apiece Apart. Light colours, loose fabrics and a coastal vibe. 

We love the exuberant colours and bold patterns found in this collection from Studio 189.

We shamelessly exclaimed over this collection of ethereal tulle evening dresses. 

In these strange, conflicted times we find yet another designer taking the opportunity with their Spring 2020 collection to make something of political statement on the meaning of one’s national identity.

Sometimes you just want pretty and something about the prettiness of this collection must have subconsciously called to me.

Gorgeous shiny and luxe fabrics take prime position in this bridge collection from Derek Lam 10 Crosby that featured a number of lovely pieces but did not feel particularly cohesive.

No real surprises from Michael Kors, but his ‘Preppy Punk’ collection was a welcome addition to the  fashion calendar.  

Don’t give us ugly fashion; give us a quirky fashion. 

Oh, the glamour! Thank you Cong Tri for showing us that gowns and evening wear can be glamorous and beautiful but also for not treading the same path that has been navigated hundreds of times before.

Gabriela Hearst showed elegant tailoring, leather macramé and hand-fringed trims for Spring 2020.

There is a new pretender to Jil Sander’s throne.

Inspired by the life of Queen Victoria of all things, this spare and well-tailored collection from designer Maria Cornejo featured rounded, dropped shoulders, voluminous pleated jackets and accordion knits. Obi-like belts referenced the corsetry of the time but instead of appearing tight and restrictive came across as cozy and comforting. 

Colour-blocking has been taken to the next level with this visually striking collection from Alice + Olivia.

The first truly spring-like collection we’ve seen for New York fashion week so far comes from Lela Rose and it looks like a love letter to that very city.

Prabal Gurung showed both menswear and womenswear pieces for Spring. His collection featured asymmetry and was heavy on floral patterns, bright colours, contrasting patterns, and embellishments.

As we mentioned in the previous post, many of the shows and collections this year so far have left us feeling fairly uninspired. We are featuring this collection by Dorothee Schumacher as a sort of palate cleanser until the more noteworthy shows hopefully turn up towards the end of the week. 

We are off to a very slow start with fashion month this season. We have considered and discounted a number of collections and shows including Jeremy Scott, Elie Tahari and Tomo Koizumi, but nothing caught our attention until this one from Longchamp. 

We kick off Spring 2020 with a look at a few collections that have already been released. Here, volume and texture combined with luxurious fabrics are the hallmarks of Greta Constantine’s collection.

We are suckers for beautiful packaging and the creators of Two Chicks beverages really know their market.

Codependent is Fletcher Eshbaugh’s new project for 1th Studio.
