Fall 2016 RTW: Fur

PETA’s influence on the fashion establishment paled this fall with the abundance of fur seen on the runway.  Animal printed furs, shearlings, mink, fox, as well as faux furries were all represented.

Trend: Androgyny

Fall 2015 Menswear

A lot is changing in the identity of menswear.  Gucci has installed a new creative director, Alessandro Michele, to bring a new contemporary look to the brand. That look brought an androgynous styling of blouses for men.  J.W. Anderson started his career by provoking a gender bending question to what menswear might become.  He is now designing his label for luxury powerhouse L.V.M.H.

Across the board we’re seeing what was once considered feminine as part of a new dialog for menswear.  Gender identity is not so black and white.  It can be seen in all colors, shapes, textures, styling, and patterns.  Here’s a view of what some designers are proposing for the Fall 2015 season.

The “little black dress” is more diverse than ever and less shy than the traditionally appointed idea of this essential part of a woman’s wardrobe.

Trend: White Dress

Spring 2015 RTW

The little white dress is the antithesis of the little black one but seen here makes for a refreshing alternative staple in a woman’s wardrobe.   Lacey frills and sheer details make them soft and seductive.

Trend: The Futurist

Spring 2015 RTW

The future is a mixed bag.  What we observe as tomorrow’s fashion can be seen as back-to-the-future, deconstructed, techno-fabricated, and shiny.  The utopian ideal of a future perfect has gotten more diverse than ever.
