• Cushnie Pre-Fall 2019

    7 days ago - By WWD

    A Cartier ad, an Eddie Murphy movie and Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang. It sounds like a mixed bag of references, yet Carly Cushnie managed to extract a common thread of opulence to inform her lovely pre-fall collection, brimming with sensual dresses for which the brand is known and a key expansion of daywear.
    The Cartier ad was by Jean Larivière in the Fifties, where a leopard slinks its way inside a store, representing a type of otherworldly glamour you can only dream of. It led the designer to think about the late Eighties comedy “Coming to America,” where Murphy plays a prince coming to...

  • Nili Lotan Pre-Fall 2019

    7 days ago - By WWD

    Nili Lotan's core aesthetic is, and has always been, a modern, fluid take on the Seventies rocker sensibility, which the designer knows to her core. She lived it, she wears it, she continually redesigns it. So for pre-fall, it came as no surprise that Lotan found no need for a specific theme or inspiration. The designer also mentioned fast-paced growth and wider exposure for the company, online and in brick-and-mortar, recently adding Nordstrom to her stockists and claiming to be one of the top-selling ready-to-wear brands on Barneys.com. With the brand's growth came an established...

    Erdem Moralioglu loves a strong female character, and in the past has looked to figures including a young Queen Elizabeth II, Adele Astaire, and the artists Sylvia Fein and Hannah Höch for seasonal inspiration. This time around, he trained his eyes on Dame Laura Knight, the first woman artist to be fully elected to The Royal Academy in London.
    He looked both to Knight's impressionistic paintings and to her personal, boyish style in an elegant collection filled with Forties shapes, lush fabrics, nipped waists, bold prints and embroidery.

  • Alejandra Alonso Rojas Pre-Fall 2019

    7 days ago - By WWD

    Alejandra Alonso Rojas combined a lot of strategic decisions with her first pre-fall collection. She showed it in her TriBeCa pop-up shop, which is open through the end of December, and approached the collection as a capsule, not in the sense that it was small, but that it focused on establishing what she considers the core of her two-year-old collection - elegant suiting, hand knits, bias-cut eveningwear. She's limited her seasons to resort, pre-fall and fall, which she sees as the best seasons to delve into knits. She took the opportunity to develop sustainable, all-natural dyes, using...
