Jason Wu Collection RTW Fall 2019

7 days ago   |   By WWD

Who needs a formal runway? Not Jason Wu, who experimented with an alternative format last season and came away pleased with the result. After that low-key presentation, during which he re-branded the luxury tier of his business as Jason Wu Collection, he opted for a variation here - an artful installation in an artist's studio behind his fragrance pop-up store that opened on Mercer Street in celebration of the launch of his second scent, Velvet Rouge. Wu said he wants his presentations to be about “just the clothes, nothing else. I want to fall in love with the craft, and why I got into...

Dennis Basso RTW Fall 2019

7 days ago   |   By WWD

“The whole inspiration is a New York City girl,” Dennis Basso exclaimed backstage before his fall show. “It's all about every woman around the world, no matter where she's from - Cairo to Dubai to Japan to Paris to São Paulo - everybody wants to be a New York City girl, a little bit. Trust me, when they come to New York, they think, ‘Do I look New York enough?'”
Basso defines the New York City girl as high-low, funky-sophisticated, citing Brooke Astor, Barbra Streisand, Barbara Walters, Lady Gaga and Cardi B as some of the city's greatest (whether they were born in one of the outer...

Ryan Roche RTW Fall 2019

7 days ago   |   By WWD

It's a strong season of modern, smart dressing, but designer Ryan Roche has been doing this long before you'd ever consider it a “trend.” After taking a short hiatus, Roche returned to the New York Fashion Week schedule à la traditional runway show format to present a lovely women's and debut men's collection. For Roche, the label is a family affair - her husband Garrett designed the men's wear, their son walked the runway , and their daughter helped with the show's music.
The collection of monochromatic layers processioned from light to dark neutrals with striking new pops of color in...

Carolina Herrera RTW Fall 2019

Wes Gordon's loving a very specific kind of contrast. “It's the idea of grand gestures and dramatic silhouettes, but in a way that's not overdone or overdesigned,” he said during a preview. “I call it minimalist maximalism.”
That catchphrase perfectly captures Gordon's fall collection for Carolina Herrera, the result of a design process that started with a focus on flowers. “I was thinking that when all the flowers are dormant and sleeping, Herrera is blooming. It's very Chance the Gardener from ‘Being There,'” he said. He began his research not on an Instagram tour of great gardens of the...

Rebecca de Ravenel RTW Fall 2019

7 days ago   |   By WWD

Coming off of a whirlwind, high-pressure spring season as a finalist in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, Rebecca de Ravenel decided to take a step back, reset and really focus on her woman. Instead of dreaming up a fanciful world, like last season's outdoor garden party or fall 2018's whimsical wonder-inspired gallery at the Carlyle Hotel, de Ravenel designed for what she wanted to see and wear.
“It's about a woman standing on her own two feet,” she stated. Fall included cleaner, sophisticated offerings across more categories: suit sets , savvy houndstooth-print coats that doubled as dresses...

Beaufille RTW Fall 2019

7 days ago   |   By WWD

This season more than any other, sisters Chloé and Parris Gordon seemed focused on highlighting the artistic integrity behind their clothes. They've built their brand on the foundation of harmonious contrasts, which they've proven through modernist silhouettes that are at once tailored and feminine, sensual yet covered up. The contrasts apply in other ways as well, such as being a small brand with global appeal, or considering the unique composition of prints even through mass manufacturing.
The sisters are artists at heart, so it's understandable that they began designing fall by taking a...

Zimmermann RTW Fall 2019

7 days ago   |   By WWD

Nicky Zimmermann found a new female heroine for fall 2019, an Australian by the name of Nancy Wake, who was a French Resistance fighter during World War II and earned the nickname “White Mouse” because she was so elusive to catch. “I couldn't believe it when I first read about her,” the Down Under designer said after her show. “What all those women did during the war...when you think about it, they didn't have to do it. It was very brave. And she was from Australia!”
There wasn't anything elusive about Zimmermann's runway assignment: “We wanted to mix toughness with femininity, playing...

Monse RTW Fall 2019

7 days ago   |   By WWD

Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia might have decided to skip a runway show, but their fall collection was definitely catwalk-worthy. Going deeper and deeper in their deconstructive approach, the designers delivered a strong lineup that brought an outdoor vibe to the city streets.
Plaids and tartans, as well as motorbike-racing references, were combined into a cool wardrobe that revisited tailoring and mixed it with cool, twisted city staples. Classic sartorial designs and nylon sporty pieces were paired for hybrid looks, including a covetable suit with a hoodie, a zipper and drawings and...
