The fall 2011 season will be remembered for the tragic fall of a rare fashion genius, John Galliano. The events that culminated in the designer’s dismissal from Dior rocked the fashion world, casting an imposing shadow over the Paris collections.
Yet fashionwise, this proved a stellar season, the good news arriving in myriad ways. It came in the 30th anniversary of one of the most loved people in the business, Michael Kors. His is a tale of resiliency, positive thinking and the credo, know thyself. At a time when others of his generation won accolades for big-time artistry or outrageous antics, Kors kept to his vision of approachable chic. His muse: the sexy tomboy. “I’ve always been convinced that you could be sexy and sporty at the same time,” he told WWD recently. For fall, he kept to that ethos, working in a fab soupçon of Studio 54.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
For @msgm’s spring 2018 show, creative director @massimogiorgetti said “Words, sounds, colors. Synthesis and therapy of a collection,” were the inspirations behind the collection, showing today. Read the rest of Milan spring 2018 inspirations on WWD.com. #mfw #wwdfashion #ss18
For her first solo album in over 10 years, Fergie tapped Carine Roitfeld, Mert and Marcus, Giovanni Bianco and more to create a fashion-focused video approach for the record, Double Dutchess. "Giovanni really helped me get back in touch with my tomboy side, my hardside," said the singer. #wwdeye #wwdfashion ( : @slovekinpics)
