Robert Normand: Robert Normand's sun-kissed beachy collection offered floor-sweeping T-shirt dresses splashed with floral prints and colorful abstracts, plus bubble-shaped batik minis that were charming.
Estrella Archs: Poetic riffs on the dress — one sporting jutting diamond-shaped hips — formed the bass note of Estrella Archs' breezy debut collection, which alternated between fluid and geometric shapes.
Manish Arora: Indian motifs and psychedelia collided to giddy effect at Manish Arora's Paris debut — think mirrored rainbow dresses, Day-Glo pom-pom jackets and a glow-in-the-dark gown crammed with butterflies.
Bless: Design duo Desirée Heiss and Inès Kaag took their sportswear spin literally this season and turned their fashion presentation into a soccer game with models scurrying about in deconstructed T-shirts with knitted patches and zippers, as well as quirky oversize shorts, sleeveless jumpsuits and hooded sweatshirts.
Bernard Willhelm: Americana stars-and-stripes creations were among the highlights of Bernard Willhelm's witty spring collection — presented on models positioned in neon-lit crates — along with the designer's signature knotted cotton smocks in punchy hues.
Dice Kayek: Turkish designer Ece Ege showed her flair for tailoring with sharply constructed vests worn over transparent chiffon pants, while short satin dresses with bell-shaped sleeves added a feminine touch.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
