Michael Michalsky sent his homeboys uptown in a fall collection that took a dapper approach to army/navy store influences. Peacoats came cropped, midlength or nearly to the floor, while a new flat shearling spruced up bombers and baseball jackets. More citified wears included a camel town coat over a neatly quilted sweater and cropped, wide-cuffed slim pants; a sweat suit comprised of a fleece three-button sport coat and dress joggers was worn with a shirt and tie. The designer’s updated hip-hop pants remained a strong point in short, narrow-legged drop-crotch styles, as well as slim fatigues and six-pocket cargo pants.
Michalsky’s women are a dressier set so for them he continued to offer lots of silk and satin, encrusted jeweled accents, sequined devoré velvet and glittering lamé. But it was the more masculine and tailored looks — sometimes soft, sometimes sharp — that shone, i.e., a nonchalant black wool coat with a leather-accented shawl collar worn with matching leather-yoked cropped pants.
As for the assertion in the latest issue of German society magazine Gala that said Michalsky is a self-styled marketing phenomenon who does not sell clothes, chairman Volker Tietgen responded, “The brand is sold in 80 doors, as well as online. It may not be enough, but it’s still not bad.”
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
