Emporio Armani 2023-2024 Autumn/Winter Collection

Very cute series…… Happy, cheerful.. Giorgio Armani’s French collection captured all our hearts. Models almost danced and smiled runway on it, wearing black hats and berets, a little Chanel style, I might add. Yes, the Eiffel Tower is gone. This incredibly vivid Italian-French collection with flying miniskirts and vests, shiny jackets and mini dresses is one-of-a-kind and very young. Giorgio Armani is forever young!

Circus of life: Like Elizabethan theater, Giorgio Armani consistently recommends clothes that bring out the person rather than the character when it comes to staging everyday life. In Emporio Armani’s fall/Winter 2023-24 collection, this style credo takes on an eclectic urban style with an elusive sense of humor. In this collection, the irony was subtle and obvious, as was the dazzling smiles of the models, the huge photographs that served as the backdrop for the catwalk, summing up the spirit and attitude of the collection.

Day and night are interchangeable, be it costumes or accessories: like the theatre, everything returns within the ring, and there is an unusual classicism.

Prada Autumn/Winter 2023-2024

Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons’ Prada collection redefined, reconsidered and ultimately rediscovered the idea of beauty. Beauty here is determined not by aesthetics but by actions – clothes are symbols, representatives of the beauty of care, of love and of reality.

The concept of the renovation extends to Fondazione Prada’s Deposito space, where the moving ceiling — a reiteration of the decor from Prada’s Autumn/Winter 23 menswear show — redesigns the dimensions, alternately enlarging and shrinking the rooms. The process revealed floral decorations that had previously been hidden in industrial forms – their revelation prompted a new view of the space and the figures moving within it.

Fendi Autumn/Winter 2023-2024

“It all started in Delfina. The way she twists FENDI is chic and perverse, which is what I love.” — King Jones

In her Autumn/Winter 2023 collection, Kim Jones explores classicism and elegance through the lens of subtle subversion. Borrowing directly from Delfina Delettrez Fendi’s wardrobe – how she wore her FENDI archive with a visceral sense of self-expression – this is a collection that plays with binary: deconstructed exploration and ascension; The insertion of gender archetypes; The interruption of ladylike manners. The illusion of insoucance is elegantly constructed, and the pieces are designed to be worn in a variety of ways.

Masculine cuts and traditional fabrics are twisted into feminine forms, while utilitarian elements are found throughout: jumpsuits, aprons, uniforms. The lace is painted and layered; The fetish glitter is in underwear or thigh-high lace-up boots.

The clean-cut mac opens with glitter lining; Diagonal cut draping dress or Persian lamb bib with drawstring design.

From the perfect punk perspective, the knitwear looks crisp or slightly curvy. Felt wool slightly shrunk, ribbed knitwear unbuttoned, or worn and skewed. A satin dress with a twisted drape dragged romantically with a flowing scarf. “It’s deconstructed, but luxurious. There’s a little bit of a nod to punk, my admiration for DIY, but turning to something chic, “explains Kim Jones. “Delfina’s first day at work, she was wearing blue and brown and I thought she looked great. The way she twists FENDI is chic and perverse, which is what I love.”

The brand’s history is reborn in a seamless Mosaic of patterns from the FENDI archive for autumn/winter 1996, and inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s 1981 sketch of a versatile knitwear.

With the launch of a new handbag, the FENDI Multi, Silvia Venturini Fendi pays tribute to the brand’s innate versatile sensibility, with a shape that has been carefully designed to switch between two very different styles. “I think what’s really good is the movement of the bag, which can combine two things into one,” she reflects. “This duality is FENDI’s style – so is the idea of something that seems simple but is actually very complex.” Other pieces, like the newly conceived FENDI C’mon, also draw on assumed simplicity: “The idea was to create very pure pieces that complemented the sophistication of the collection,” she said.

This is exactly the same spirit embodied in the jewelry designed by Delfina Delettrez Fendi.

“I wanted to explore the purity of the double F, locking the ears,” she explains. “Like the collection, it gets to the heart of FENDI.”

Schiaparelli Fall/Winter 2023-2024 Haute Ready-to-wear

File! Schiaparelli’s creative director Daniel Roseberry has been grounded after a series of controversies over the past few years. The work we see today is absolutely brilliant, sophisticated and modern. How great Elsa Schiaparelli’s designs look today on denim and other modern fabrics.

Schiaparelli’s wardrobe. “Of all Elsa Schiaparelli’s legacies, perhaps her most enduring is her combination of art and fashion. Elsa was known for her fashion, but her career debut was in those then-groundbreaking trompe l ‘oeil knitwear. Pure sportswear, they were a radical rebuttal to all things frilly and ruffled, and knitwear was easy to slip on and off (you could think of them as the sportswear of their time). Those early sweaters were the first of many “viral” moments in her short but influential career, “- press release.

Rick Owens Fall/Winter 2023-2024

This isn’t Rick Owens’ first pink and cheerful collection. It’s another step forward – now it’s pink, cheery, shiny, even winking. Beautiful pink, gold, black shiny leather pieces, tight fashion silhouettes, fancy down jackets — this collection is another masterpiece from Rick Owens. The winter jacket is inspired by Commes de Garcons with its fluffy and unusual bubbly look. I like Rick Owens more and more.

Charles Wilson Brega James — A British-American fashion designer known as Charles James (1906-1978) has been Rick Owens’ greatest inspiration. PROM dresses and Charles James’ highly structured aesthetic influenced Rick Ownes from the start. But since the last few years, all I can say is that he has become fascinated by the great designer.

Balmain Men Fall 2023

How could I forget my dear Olivier… He walked on thin black stilts. It’s been 2,024 days since he secretly unveiled his new men’s fall 3-2023 collection at the Hotel Regina in Paris.

In the bathroom of the Regina hotel, right? .. Well, I don’t want to know.

So what was Olivier and what was Rousteing doing in the bathroom? He is designing Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Gucci for Balmain fall 2023-2024 menswear.

The press release reads: “With his Balmain 2023 men’s Fall/Winter collection, creative director Olivier Rousteing takes the house code to new dimensions. Presented in the private salon of Hotel Paris (Regina), elegant yet bold designs inspire the iconic Balmain neo-French style.” They definitely mean the bathroom. But what do they mean by “Balmain signature”? Founder Pierre Balmain never made Chanel, Louis Vuitton or Gucci. He did Balmain.

What we see here is called hassling. Olivier Rousteing’s repeated copying of Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Gucci annoys us all. Now, when Pharrell Williams takes over the throne of Louis Vuitton and builds himself an Imperial bomber (literally) that looks like a French king or emperor, what does Olivier Rousteing do? Aren’t you scared, Olivier? Well, you should. He’s not gentle, and he doesn’t do things in the bathroom…

In addition to the classic Chanel jacket, what we see here is a Louis Vuitton/Gucci hybrid. Why mix? Because Olivier Rousteing now makes “smart” copies. Gucci makes very beautiful men’s wool coats, but not damier canvas or checkerboard patterns. Louis Vuitton makes damier canvas, but not long wool coats with checkerboard patterns. So… Let’s do it…

Last but not least Olivier Rousteing made another “clever” marketing move for Asian pop star boys: Patrick Nattawat Finkler and Captain Ateez Kim Hong Joong. Give them right up to their elbows. The 19-year-old doesn’t know what they’re wearing, they’ve met somewhere. Olivier Rousteing had an idea…

So enjoy the Balmain Balmain 2023-2024 Fall menswear collection on this pleasing note.

Rakuten Fashion Week 2023 in Tokyo

Rakuten Fashion Week TOKYO 2023 Autumn/Winter 2023-2024 kicks off on Monday with the aim of fusing “digital and physical” in the post-pandemic era.

Tokyo Fashion Award 2023 winner IRENISA kicked off the 2023 Autumn/Winter Parade in the Japanese capital, showcasing runway, the brand’s first physical store display.

The menswear brand showed off its ready-to-wear collection, dominated by monochrome oversized gowns and pants as models snaked across the floor through the audience.

The biannual event is back almost at full speed. Of the 58 brands on Tokyo’s official calendar, 42 plan to hold live fashion shows, while the remaining 16 opt for digital presentations.

“As we survive the global pandemic and enter the era of COVID-19, the Japan Fashion Week organization will not simply return to its pre-COVID-19 status, but will change direction and move to a new stage of further development, integrating digital and physical,” the Japan Fashion Week (JFW) organization said in a statement.

The opening day coincided with the end of the Japanese government’s recommendation to wear masks in public because the number of infections in the country is falling sharply.

“Finally, with a good wind blowing back into society, spring has come to us,” Hiroshi Komoda, secretary general of JFW, said at the opening ceremony, taking part in a cask opening for Dassai, the event’s official sake.

“The excitement we saw earlier is finally coming back,” he added.

IRENISA’s co-designer Yuji Abe said that when the brand launched in 2020, “the mood was very negative” due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I am deeply moved because the fact that we were able to show runway in person this time shows that the pandemic has entered a new phase,” Abe said.

Using the concept of fashion and satire, Abe launched the brand with Yu Kobayashi, an experienced patternmaker at Yohji Yamamoto.

Other brands showcasing their collections at the event included debuting 08sircus and aki masuda/SAYAKAASANO, while overseas brands YUEQI QI and Maison J.Semone presented their creations.

Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2023 collection

Every Balenciaga story by Demna Gvasalia should begin with: “I was sitting on the toilet once, and something happened…”

Whatever happens or emerges will hit stores quickly, as this pre-fall 2023 collection did. Demna’s picture book was supposed to show us in XNUMX 2022, but due to a public scandal and controversial Christmas campaign, it was released today, the same day the collection was pulled from stores, according to the press release.

So we can clearly notice that these pieces have become completely fossilized, like the one Demna Gvasalia was holding at the 2023 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Why don’t you grab your sneakers for early fall 2023? He’s probably cool, and he wore pajamas for the dance. Next to Demna, we saw Gucci’s former artistic director Alessandro Michele. Sad picture… Very sad…

The pre-fall 2023 collection didn’t show anything new: the same dirty long coats, jeans and bags. Contemporary? I don’t think so.

Chanel Cruise 2024 Resort Los Angeles

Known as the birthplace of American entertainment and the center of avant-garde art, Los Angeles is an eclectic and vibrant playground for creative activity. It was the perfect place to show Chanel’s Early Spring 2024 collection, which traditionally embodies the allure of a long voyage.

Welcome to Los Angeles! Chanel launched its Chanel Early Spring Resort collection, marking the start of the holiday season with a show-stopping show at Paramount Studios. Returning to Los Angeles 15 years after its memorable run at Santa Monica Airport, the series captured the spirit of the city with a clever blend of late ’70s and early’ 80s humor and nostalgia.

It boasts a range of vibrant colours, dazzling decor and draws inspiration from a variety of elements such as pop culture references, skate culture, funky influences, a glamorous Hollywood aesthetic and subtle sporty styles. In keeping with Parisian charm, the collection perfectly embodies the essence of women’s holiday wear for 2024.

Margot Robbie, Kristen Stewart, Riley Keogh, Esha RAE and Marion Cotillard were among the stars who packed the front row of the Chanel show. Snoop Dogg added to the star-studded vibe by wearing a Chanel scarf and performing after the show like a bandanna.

Last week, the brand’s largest 30,000 square foot store in the United States opened on Rodeo Drive, a landmark moment as it marks nearly 1,931 years since Coco Chanel first visited California in 100 years. The fashion icon designed in films directed by George Cukor and Jean Renoir. Karl Lagerfeld strengthened Chanel’s ties to film during his 36-year tenure at the brand, forging friendships with the likes of Penelope Cruz and Tilda Swinton.

Billboards for the “One Night Only” event were placed around Los Angeles in anticipation of the Chanel show, highlighting Chanel’s deep roots in the city’s mainstream culture. With a youth movement theme, the show included leg warmers, wedge trainers, running shorts and swimming trunks, a departure from the brand’s classic aesthetic, reflecting the laid-back chic vibe of Venice Beach. The collection is appropriate for a variety of occasions, including Margot Robbie’s upcoming press conference for Barbie, the most anticipated movie of the summer.

Experimenter: Sarah & Sebastian

Australian jewelry brand Sarah & Sebastian, which started with minimalist jewelry, can be said to be the ultimate experimenter of points, lines and surfaces. Their creative design thinking makes jewelry transcend traditional physical appearance and present completely different ways of wearing. From their Sydney studio, they crafted silhouettes that perfectly combine the opposite elements of classic and fashion, insisting on the highest grade gold and silver materials, as well as gemstones that meet environmental and human rights standards, to create a new definition of contemporary luxury.

What makes Sarah & Sebastian special is that every time they launch a new jewelry collection, they have a very strong and obvious main line of the collection, incorporating ideas into the design details in a way that is full of story and imagination. The large piece of ornaments with black background is a series of ornaments created with Oil as the theme.
