Retailers-Weigh-In

French Fashion, State Your Case: Retailers Weigh In Photo by Giovanni Giannoni: Linda Fargo, senior vice president, fashion office and store presentation, Bergdorf Goodman: “It’s a great tribute to the overall season when choosing one collection above all is so difficult. However, Céline keeps bubbling up to the top of the catwalk.  You know when something’s a game-changer when you want to eradicate your closet and restock it with a new vision like this. From the catwalk to the Stores.
David Rubenstein, vice president and general merchandise manager, Jeffrey New York: “My single-favorite collection is Céline. The catwalk show had an incredible energy. The collection is constantly evolving, and Phoebe is always pushing the needle forward.  It all just seemed like what women will want to wear.” French fashion impacts the industry as usual especially on the catwalk.
Tancrède de Lalun, merchandise manager for men’s and women’s wear, Printemps: French fashion, “Céline straight from the catwalk. After revolutionizing fashion four years ago, Phoebe Philo needed to renew herself and she did it with brio and talent. She opens up a world of possibilities for all the brands over the next few seasons, and what I like is that she was able to take a risk and reinvent herself exactly when she needed to.”  French fashion is an interesting factor in all of this.For All From Collections Magazine including French Fashion CLICK HERE ::

No heroin chic here! The first ever plus-size fashion week in Paris celebrated womanly curves in all their glory. Dubbed Pulp Fashion Week – the word “pulp” in French conjuring up luscious fruit – the event was organized by Histoire de Courbes, a Paris-based fashion group that celebrates larger women. Weeks after labels like Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Lanvin showed off their Spring 2014 collections at Paris Fashion Week, the Pulp events were a triumph for plus-size-friendly designers and the women who wear them. French labels La Belle Affranchie, Maryse Richardson, Tamboo Bamboo and Femme Fabuleuses were among the brands sported by the models, who strode the runway in styles ranging from lingerie to couture to sportswear. “Now please let’s welcome women with fabulous curves!” the Histoire de Courbes website announced in English. “What better than a real Fashion Show for the Pulp women?” While some in the fashion industry have moved to address concerns over too-thin models – including bans on models who are under age 16 and who  “appear underweight” walking in shows – skinny is still the predominant aesthetic. In September’s New York Fashion Week, Eden Miller became the first designer to show a plus-size label at Fashion Week. Miller’s Cabiria line carries clothes in sizes 12-24.

As the obvious minimalist I am, I couldn’t help it but fall heedlessly in love with David Koma’s latest collection. Searching up every single piece of clothing he’s ever made, I am now convinced that he may or may not be my current favorite designer.
His creations reminds of less war ready and more sophisticated and pastel-ish ancient Japanese armors.

PARIS: Gareth Pugh Spring/Summer 2014

What can we say? Well, I’ll just go ahead and say it. FAN-TAB-U-LUST to Mr. Pugh! I simply consider this collection to be one of the most ‘original’ set of looks to date. Day, Evening & Formal wear, all put together. Go Gareth !!

gpBack in 2005, Gareth Pugh was living in a squat in London when all the important UK fashion magazines attached themselves to him like a Fred Perry-clad tumor. Fresh out of fashion school and an internship with Rick Owens, he was soon a style-page wank fantasy, representative of the type of hijinks English fashion clamors for. It was all justified. Gareth’s first shows featured inflatable outfits and light-strewn garments. Everyone in attendance over the age of 30 offered mealy-mouthed praise—like it was all very well and fun and diverting but ultimately fey and immature. Attendees under the age of 25, however, cheered the models and clothes down the runway, feeling like somebody had finally reinvented fashion for the 21st century and rescued us all from retro regurgitation. Six years on, fashion sites are overflowing with photos of androgynous kids addicted to black who look just like Pugh. His line garners the type of attention and praise usually reserved for the vaunted and dusty old guard. He shows annually in Paris and New York, working and hanging out with all the ritziest fashion people, like Karl Lagerfeld and Mario Testino. We’ve known him for a while, though, so we persuaded him to take a few minutes for the following little chat

MFW 2014: Dolce & Gabbana strikes GOLD!

Gold Dolce & Gabbana SS 2014 002Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have had money matters on the mind of late. Those much documented tax woes manifested this afternoon in a collection that was quite literally all about the money – ancient gold coins to be precise that looked like they had been dug up on an archaeological excursion – before being polished, naturally. That excursion too, might have extended to a tour of the roman ruins, those as well were a recurring motif this afternoon. It was an imaginary journey, they said, to rediscover ancient Sicily. Coins were blown up to the size of tea plates and joined together to make impressive waist cinchers, or else chain-mailed into a jingling mini dress, while others were suspended in hoop earrings or stuck to barrettes positioned into messy up-dos. Gold Dolce & Gabbana SS 2014 001

Lithographs of sepia-hued, postcard-pretty crumbling columns, Greek temples and theatres were printed over silk dresses; strict and midi length and buttoned all the way up the back, or else, mini and flared with wide sleeves – two silhouettes that Dolce and Gabbana have been preoccupied with for several seasons now. Variations on those would have been welcoming to witness, in fact, there were several parallels between this collection and the duo’s autumn/winter 2013 outing where they mined the golden mosaics of Sicily’s Cathedral of Monreale (all that gold must be a winner at retail, these designers hold big appeal for the moneyed set). Those clients then, will be delighted with the gold rush finale today; golden dresses every which way – from lace to others encrusted in faceted crystals, or crafted in laser-cut leather.
