NEW YORK — The patchwork trend, the textures and handmade qualities of the fall runways notwithstanding, an informal poll of designer businesses shows that the looks that got the most play for the season with editorial placements and retail interest are ones that evoke a casually refined air: chunky cashmere sweaters, suede blouses and subtly embellished coats. Price was not an issue.
Designers also said editorial coverage melded closely with retail interest this season, as evidenced by Calvin Klein’s black hammered silk cut-out dress, a sleeveless version of which is expected to appear on the cover of the August InStyle, worn by Gwyneth Paltrow, while stores went wild for a similar style with long sleeves.
Here’s a look at what some houses think will become the top sellers for fall:
@moncler unveiled its latest project, #MonclerGenius, yesterday at Milan Fashion Week. The Italian outwear maker gave show-goers a preview of the monthly collections – which were created by eight designers and creative talents including Pierpaolo Piccioli, Simone Rocha, Craig Green and more – that will start rolling out in the summer.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
