Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, Hugo — the bad boy and cheeky girl brand from German giant Hugo Boss — finally got their guys and gals together. While they share the same runway, it's usually hard to imagine them cavorting anywhere else. Until now. “They’re the same kind of people,” said men’s designer Bart de Backer.
For both genders, graphic lines and inset details were used to accentuate and sharpen silhouettes. “I kind of stripped it right back. I wanted it to be reduced,” said women’s creative director Eyan Allen. The lines were long and lean with many dresses, including a plunging V-necked sheath with square cap sleeves in Hugo red or a vibrant grape, now hitting the knee. “It would have looked slutty short,” the designer said. Or else Eyan went for shape, working trim jackets and a short coat with a double-capelet shoulder, or molding sleeves and skirts in trapezoidal forms.
"In order for Shudu to wear garments, she needs to be able to put them on, just like you would in the real world. You have to digitize the outfits," said Cameron-James Wilson on dressing 3-D model @shudu.gram for her WWD photoshoot with @itsclo3d. #wwdfashion (📸: @cjw.photo)
“Shudu is a digital supermodel, a very glamour and amazing woman. But she’s 3-D,” says Cameron-James Wilson, a fashion photographer and the creature of @shudu.gram. Here, Shudu wears @cushnieetochs for her debut fashion editorial. #wwdfashion (📷: @cjw.photo)
“It is the fierce female performances that came before me that made be able to clearly identify for myself what it was that I wanted to do, what kind of artist I wanted to be, what kind of films I wanted to make,” said @brielarson at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards.

“On a personal level, it’s my vision to create a really different idea with their look to be at the epitome of women’s fashion in South Korea – to create a new milestone,” said stylist @chochowon on dressing K-pop’s most fashionable girl group, @blackpinkofficial. WWD’s @mistywhitesidell sat down with Won ahead of the group’s new album release, “Square Up,” which is out today. Read the full interview on WWD.com. #wwdfashion #blackpink_squareup #blackpink
For @ralphlauren, 2018 is a reason to celebrate: It marks the brand’s 50th year in business. Last year’s chauffeured show in Bedford, NY featuring his vintage car collection may have seemed like the big celebration to show-goers, but they were wrong. The official celebration will be held on September 7 during #NYFW. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdfashion (📷: @giovanni_giannoni_photo)
