Feb 28, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Since Guillaume Henry took over as creative director of Carven in 2009, we’ve seen him create some truly inspiring fashion, especially with his newly-formed men’s collection; but his womenswear line is making a statement all on its own. For the Fall 2014 collection, Henry opted for bold, bright color, pairing it with black and grey staples for winter. ...

Feb 27, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Gareth Pugh doesn’t do ready-to-wear. His Fall 2014 collection during Paris Fashion Week was an escape from the confines of a “ready-to-wear collection”; a highly ambitious lineup of angles, fabrics and shapes, but what it was he was trying to convey—we’re not really sure.... Read More

Alexis Mabille RTW Fall 2014: A Feminine Collection for Fashion Lovers

Feb 26, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

The Alexis Mabille Fall 2014 show during Paris Fashion Week today left us a little confused, but totally in love. There was a lot going on, most of which were statement fabrics paired together like floral, lace and plaid—not a normal combo. But everything was very feminine, even plaid that has been so consistently thrown into grungy ‘90s throwback ensembles was treated to delicate shapes and softer detailing. ... Read More

Feb 26, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Yesterday during the first day of Paris Fashion Week Anthony Vaccarello showcased his Fall 2014 collection—a lineup filled with miniskirts, tiny dresses and more leather jackets than a rock show. The designer, known for showing skin and making slits and cutouts work to his advantage, seems to be fine tuning his iconic aesthetic rather than changing it up....

Feb 24, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Holy lipstick, Batman! That is one fantastic color. Izumi Ogino's designs at Anteprima almost took a backseat to the beauty during the Fall 2014 show at Milan Fashion Week.

Emporio Armani RTW Fall 2014: Masculine Suiting, Shapes and...A Hat

We’re all for an androgynous look, and we’ll confess, more than once we’ve actually borrowed our boyfriend’s sweater, but Emporio Armani’s Fall 2014 collection during Milan Fashion Week didn’t blend the line between the sexes as much as it piled one on top of another. ... Read More

Maria Grachvogel RTW Fall 2014: Finding the Beauty in Simplicity

Feb 21, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

If you’re looking for collection that speaks volumes in terms of structure and classic beauty rather than in hot trends, layers of fabrics and more glitter than a Barbie factory, we have the perfect line for you. Maria Grachvogel showcased her Fall 2014 collection yesterday during Milan Fashion Week, and it was a clean series of lady-like silhouettes and dramatic color. ... Read More

Feb 18, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Yesterday during London Fashion Week, the Peter Pilotto Fall 2014 collection came down the runway in the usual explosion of colors, but this collection broke away from past seasons in terms of structure.

Diesel Black Gold RTW Fall 2014: Calling All Stylish Space Cadets

Feb 13, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Fashion and science may not go hand in hand (although designers still find a way to do it), but every now and then it converges so seamlessly that we almost don't notice.

Feb 10, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Mara…Hoffman? The Mara Hoffman that brings us such delightful prints with shades of neon, bright and clashing color combos even in the dead of winter? What on earth is all this black? Don’t get us wrong we kind of love it, but still—we were a little surprised. On Saturday during New York Fashion Week, the designer showcased her Fall 2014 collection which was inspired by North Africa and gave us a grayscale palette of her otherwise iconic patterns. ...
