Has the moment for new fashion bloggers to gain entry to the club passed?
And a classic and calm collection at Hermès.
Clothes take advantage of technology without sacrificing the brand’s history.
And a grounded point of view at Valentino.
No longer just for the ladies who lunch.
Hedi Slimane took old concepts and dipped them into a fountain of youth.
And a house adrift at Galliano.
Tisci spewed out fashion bonbons faster than they could be consumed.
Featuring coats with the ease of well-tailored bathrobes.
Unnerving shapes at Comme des Garçons; confident new directions at Balmain.
The collection exuded both austerity and reserve.
And Alber Elbaz’s fizzy toast to women.
Entirely different from last season, but always unique amongst the shows.
A dynamic and stylish, yet utterly commercial, collection.
Yet Dries Van Noten (and a few others) deliver a bit of a bang.
The week ends with a gentle embrace at Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein.
Ironic, given the snowmageddon outside.
A moment when menswear and womenswear converge.
And laid-back luxury at Michael Kors.
A designer’s challenge: holding onto, and then evolving, a point of view.
