    “It's a very angry collection,” Rick Owens said backstage before his show, explaining some recent frustrations.

    Alberta Ferretti continued to expand her daywear offer with her pre-fall collection, further developing her knitwear selection, for example, and putting comfort center stage for women that are on the move.
    While sophisticated, the collection was inspired by the country life, the outdoors - and its earthy colors. It also had an eccentric touch, leaving more rigorous shapes behind.
    A roomy sweater with green and cerulean stripes was worn under a reversible moss-green shearling cape and with cuissard velvet boots in the same hue. Different crochet inserts - including a floral pattern and the...
