From Proenza Schouler in NY to Richard Quinn in London, this Fashion Week’s giving a lot to love. What has been your favorite show so far? We are loving Britain’s emerging fashion designers and the way they are showing their talents on the runway, like the Central Saint Martins’ graduation class collections and Nensi Dojaka’s physical showcase after winning the LVMH Prize. Fashion East’s pastel tones also caught our eye and Stefan Cooke’s layers were flawless.
There are plenty of shows and trends to analyze, so we leave you with our top from London:
Marco Capaldo decided to keep 16Arlington’s flame alive after co-founder Kikka Cavenati passed away last year. Their powerful bond was reflected on the runway with Swarovski Crystals shinning, rusty treated feathers flying and a touch of ’90s. This show marked a complete new era for the brand and Capaldo.
Though Richard Quinn’s collections are known for their stunning flower prints and silhouettes, the ex-Central Saint Martin’s student found his way into exploring new styles, creating big flawless ball gowns, long colored opera gloved dresses and oversize hats. The London Chamber Orchestra played along to Quinn’s elegant shapes and grand scale rose prints.
Dojaka’s lingerie-esque aesthetic and her ways of creating sexy silhouettes are practically endless. The LVMH prize winner said she wanted to help women feel good and secure from every angle and she kept her mission for this season. She still has her magic touch and she has now added new tones to her pieces.
Simone Rocha’s collection was seen by fashion enthusiasts directly from the halls of the London’s Inns of Court. Abstracted shapes of wings, feathers and white coats were showed, as well as knitted balaclavas with crystal embroidery. Pearls made a huge impact and white swans were seen representing The Children of Lir. Half bird-Half human.
