SS20 is a move away from the heavy layering and free use of activewear-esque pieces that were dominant in Linder’s last three collections. The silhouettes here emphasize tailoring and a more ‘formal’ sensibility.
The label has continued to use stretch materials, with its own exploratory prints, in patterns that could be described as sartorial. And the body mapping that has become a brand staple is still there in the armholes and twisted outseams.
The palate is more ‘evening’ than recent collections, with a few blasts of highlighter yellow, orange and blue, and the fabrics as a group are more fine and drape-y.
The brand has continued our use of Mephisto footwear and the white sneakers that appear on the runway offer a peak at a soon-to-be- released collaboration between that legendary shoemaker and Linder.
The team is also very excited to feature custom shoes and boots from Kunn. These are inspired by a style of footwear that was traditionally associated with ‘Ottoman Rowdies’, rakish toughs who operated as informal community law enforcement in the late stages of the empire.
Linder spring collection picks up strands from its previous work and distills them while introducing a new commitment to simplicity and clarity of concept.
The Cinq à Sept Spring 2020 collection embodies the parallels between the culture, style and attitude of the 1970s and that of today. A sense of wonder surrounds the collection illustrated by the astrological inspired embroideries, star jacquard and Swirling Plume print. The Psychedelic Paisley print is modernized in a hammered satin fabric updated in fresh and feminine silhouettes. The flower power inspired Daisy Chain print shows up in both a “mod” suit and ultra-feminine dress. Hand-crocheted knits, high-waisted bellbottoms and statement making collars bring forward nostalgic memories of dancing the night away and the (ongoing) fight for peace and love.

Schepperheyn SS20 collection is a representation of one evening with friends.
By taking a common situation and juxtaposing it with interesting prints, the German brand highlights the joy emanating from a group of friends.
The print designs include collages of pictures made on the evening, which were turned into new mottos and emblazoned on shirts, shorts, as well as fitted longsleeves and tanktops.

'I’ve been following
Following your mind's instructions
On how to just slowly, sharply screw myself to death'
Horrowshow, The Libertines
Ours is a peculiarly violent time for the mind.
The stop-starts of progression and regression happening inexplicably in tandem.
It’s an unreasonable load for the spirit to bear.
While those who govern us publicly falter and fail – the fabric of our everyday lives pulled apart by policy – as citizens we are asked to meet with a labyrinth of enormous geo-political ideas, which have become almost too big for us to contend with. A sense of crisis is un-ignorable, but the target's ever-moving – an intangible enemy at the gate.
The body of work that is LOVERBOY SS20 erupted beneath violent pressure; as a diamond under heat. Formed in the eye of a storm, or the centre of a furnace, Charles Jeffrey proposes these clothes as physical, visceral responses to societal change. In first considering human shortcomings, Jeffrey explores too the human potential.
New pattern-cutting techniques, geographic and gestural, become a kind of visual exploration of the civil consciousness of Jeffrey’s generation. Seersucker suiting and featherweight jacquards, referencing armour and civil service uniforms, speak to the need for both freedom and protection. Opal blue silk column dresses appear disarmingly serene; the contradictory detailing of military jackets slung across them. Across the collection lie brutal, intricately layered rips and tears - or are they fault lines...?
Returning to the ideas of consciousness and confusion: The literal broken records of our soundtrack vibrate with questions. How, then, to make sense of the extremity of modern living? Perhaps peace can still be found in the beautiful and the unexplained. The enduring wonder of the human psyche, or the secret mystery of music. Joining us in The British Library tonight – physically, in spirit, and through the collections surrounding us - are some of the great thinkers and feelers who, to LOVERBOY, incite belief.
Something linear streaks through central ideas of maps, guitar riffs, neural networks. We consider where we're going, and where we've been. These are clothes that are alive to the primacy of thought.
A sense of rebellion can't be ignored – at the beginning of a formative new chapter for his business; Jeffrey considers what modern punk looks like. Perhaps it looks like expectation... The idea that anarchism simply identifies that any force which dominates us has a burden of proof to bear.
This show deals in intricate thinking and feeling; over-burdened hearts and minds.
Unveiled in the grounds of the Embassy of the United Kingdom on the famous Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, the Ralph & Russo Autumn-Winter 2019/2020 couture collection depicts a 1930s soirée en plein air; a lively scene wrought with flora, fauna and the majestic opulence of the Art Deco era.
Lensed by the creative works of artist and designer, Erté, evening gowns are sensually draped and bestrewn with strings of pearls, exposing elongated hourglass silhouettes and emulating his Les Bijoux de Perle.
Daring shades of red, pink, yellow and aqua are fused in ombré hues and juxtaposed with ice-white feather embellished cocktail dresses and black bejewelled smoking jackets; at once elegant and sophisticated, but with a masculine edge.
Embellished in true Art Deco form with opalescent fan-shaped embroideries and designs that are simultaneously geometric and spherical, this season’s collection translates the pastiche of influences behind the Art Deco movement into a continued celebration of the modern female and her multi-faceted form amid the joie de vivre of an era almost a century past.
F/FFFFFF debuted its Spring/Summer 2019 collection at New York Fashion Week.
“This season aims to capture a new way of appreciating beauty among a changed oriental society, implying what has been engraved in its blood and marrow through 5000 years of cultural heritage combined with its newfound vitality. “ Designer Zac Zeng said.
With the rapid development of technology, the world is changing and recognizing the countless cultures surrounding it. China is developing at remarkable speeds and is learning to balance traditional and modern forces. The tradition – the philosophical ethos and aesthetic notions culturally ingrained for thousands of years – collides with the modern, a fast-moving and tech-driven society led by new mediums. Today's China rises as a gigantic dragon slowly and gradually waking up, with forces colliding and blending within its own body, and is emerging as a new and influential vitality.
In its quest to balance modernity with nature and simplicity, F/FFFFFF combined deep-rooted philosophical ideas and scientific and technological means and observed resulting phenomena while trying to achieve a state of "heaven and humanity." Eastern philosophy, with its mysterious charm, aura, and consciousness, is a marriage of ethereality and reality, nature and art, that contains a powerful and connotative strength.
The collection mixes heaven and earth colors – Blues, Greens and Browns – with fluorescent colors of modern technology – bright Greens, Yellows, Reds – matched with low purity brick red and indigo to achieve a moderate aesthetic and reflect the subtle sense of simplicity of the eastern culture.
The pattern offering combines and image of the rising sun with light-emitting diode glitch art, embodying the rise of eastern power, and the coexistence of the cultural commonality and difference between the West and the East.
Notable attendees included Enes Kanter (NBA, NY Knicks), Damyean Dotson (NBA, NY Knicks), Duke Inhenacho (NFL, NY Giants, Influencer), Broderick Hunter (Model, Actor), Delilah Muhammed (Olympian), Kenneth Faried (NBA, Brooklyn Nets), Miranda Holder (Celebrity Stylist), Eman B Fendi (Celebrity Stylist), Chris Lavish (Global Digital Director for Fashion Week), and Warren Elgort (Film Director and Photographer).
F/FFFFFF was founded by Zac Zeng in 2017 and it is supported by Mr. Jili Liu, CEO of HONG LI INT. The brand represents Fashion, Family, Future, Friendship, Freedom, Fun and Fresh.
F/FFFFFF is a brand based on melancholic romanticism and sensual wanderings; focusing on an unruly inner and subjective irrational image of men and women. Zac Zeng aspires to "freedom, equality and universal love" by pursuing a refined and delicate beauty.
(New York, September 6, 2018) –Tadashi Shoji, debuted its Spring/Summer 2019 Collection at New York Fashion Week at Spring Studios –Gallery 1.
Look ahead –and up. Somewhere, something beautiful is waiting to be discovered. Spring 2019 is inspired by going to space and the feeling of hope, because the future is bright and star-filled.
Galaxies –mysterious and captivating –underscore the collection’s vibe. Glossy finishes andchrome sheens play up sensual cutouts and figure-skimming draping. Sequins glitter like liquefied jewels. They drip down like sleek silhouettes and sculpt sexy shapes.
Colors blend from darkness to vivid darkness, reflecting the Milky Way’s enchanting nebulous glow. A red-iron ombre, coated with clear paillettes, creates multi-dimensional shimmer. Venus, aptly named after the goddess of love, burns the brightest with her grace, charm and beauty. Gowns enjoy a natural ease and ethereal prettiness, evident in blouson waists, Watteau trains, and cosmos-printed chiffon.
This season’s Pamella Roland collection is inspired by the tranquil, colorful scenery and architecture of Bali. We wanted to channel the aura of the island using color, textures, and embroideries, while staying true to our customer. Bold and soft colors are used to represent the water and wildlife found on the island. Sleek angles and lines in silhouettes represent Bali’s modern architecture, while ornate embroidery and fabric manipulation is employed to emulate Bali’s traditional elements.
The collection is comprised of simple and complex silhouettes, each fashioned with exquisite fabrics including stretch crepe and pleated tulle, as well as a fresh take on a 3D floral jacquard. Pamella Roland Spring 19 embroideries include 3D cut feather flowers, colorful ostrich feathers, ombré signature sequins, and mixed-element embellishments. The color palette balances the bold with the subdued, allowing the collection to be worn at any event all over the globe.
Bahrain is yet again Noon By Noor’s source of inspiration, this time for the Spring/Summer 2019 collection, designed by Noor Rashid Al Khalifa & Haya Mohamed Al Khalifa.
The palette of dusty tones, Sand, Pink Sand and Blue Haze are derived from the landscape of dunes, sea and sky. These shades work back to a core of clean Optic White and Black. Colors work as tone on tone in the textural 'Palm' print as well as the second print, a delicate hand drawn stripe, offered in a combination of two opposing color ways.
Silhouettes are influenced by traditional Middle Eastern costume, which also inspires the manipulation of printed lines around the body. Easier pieces are cut with movement and have planes of striped cloth, tucked and folded to offer distorted optical patterns.
Fabrications give depth to the collection through natural fiber qualities, and texture is created with surfaces broken with stripe weaves, mini pleats, accent Dobby weaves and undulating fringes. The palm leaf is taken as a symbolic motif from the island and is interpreted in the use of sunray pleating in tops, skirts and dresses, all contributing to a flow in movement.
Embellishments also echo the leaf frond and are worked as a literal motif in tone on tone thread-work, or traditional 'Pitta' work, in Metallic Bronze. Styling pays tribute to the masculine and feminine, by contrasting clean mannish tailoring and separates worn back to drape, offering fullness and movement.
"I was very happy when Jacquemus got in touch with me concerning that collaboration. For me as choreographer it's of course a great joy to see that my performance "bodies in urban places" increasingly also finds entrance into other creative fields such as the fashion world. Simon had a very clear vision about the motive he wanted for the picture, so that was easy to decide on. The challenge for me in this special case was to arrange the models as an interesting body sculpture on the one hand, butto make sure at the same time that the clothes don't lose anything from their impression" - Willi Dorner
"We are all a group of people together, so there is no individuality in this campaign, and there is something very playful. I like that in Jacquemus there is no hierarchy" - Simon Porte Jacquemus

New York – July 13th, 2016, Social Activism is ‘in’ this season, and this Fashion Week, Ricardo Seco raised awareness for endangered species on New York City’s runways. Seco’s LIFE collection was shown via presentation at Hotel Americano, 518 W 27th St, on July 12th at 5:30PM.
As a man who enjoys life with a consciousness of nature and the only Mexican designer being featured during NYFWM, Ricardo Seco combined the sacredness of Holbox, the island situated off the northeast coast of the Yucatan peninsula, with New York City lifestyle. Known for being a sanctuary of endangered species like the Carey Turtle, tern, American flamingo and sea cow, the island inspires Holbox, Seco’s ode to NYC. “This city’s culture shapes our understanding of our nature and the future”, stated Ricardo. “Take a look at what Mother Nature has given us. Without nature, there is no us; there is no LIFE.” Using unique colors and textures to convey his message Seco states, “LIFE is about defining your own future, while preserving the treasures of the past. This collection is meant to not only bring awareness to the island of Holbox and NYC, but to the importance of protecting our planet as a whole.” Featured colors and textures included: pastel pink, baby blue, lilac, flamingo feathers, print of whale shark skin, print of sand, grey and black. LIFE featured Spring/Summer 2017’s latest trends including oversized silhouettes, bomber jacket, bikers, boxing shorts, relaxed pants, athletic inspired shorts, and sweatshirts.
Seco describes the line as ‘street meets urban sophistication.’ Cumulatively, Ricardo has shown 10 seasons; his first being held on Feb. 16, 2012. In chronological order his entire collection includes: FLY, SHARE, ALIVE, POWER, FOREVER, DREAMS, REAL, LUCK, TIME and now for Spring/Summer 2017 - LIFE. In each collection, Ricardo combines the richness of Mexican culture with its new contemporary sophistication.
Everything from the cream carpet to the strategically positioned house plants had been carefully curated inside this extraordinary venue, the UNESCO building. Guests took their seats on a series of carefully placed concrete and perspex boxes - some sprayed gold, some Yves Klein blue, others transparent and containing hundreds of household items: disposable razors, wire wool, light bulbs.
Curation was a fixation for Anderson, speaking backstage after the show. "I feel like that's what we do with our lives, we curate them. All the jewellery had been curated, each look curated. It was about putting the woman in a new environment, both out of body and out of mind." Jewellery played a pivotal role in tying looks together, as it has elsewhere this season, and took on totemic qualities. Life-size cat’s head necklaces in perspex resin and hand-painted nappa leather bore resemblance to depictions of the ancient Egyptian goddess Bastet, while a gold hand brooch clutching on the hem of a khaki jacket recalled Victorian mourning jewellery. The leather cats were clever: hollow vessels, they comprise the new Joyce bag. The other big-ticket leather item this season was the Amazona in a new multi-pocket variation, the bottom of the bag left unzipped and gaping open.
Each look had a carefully controlled sense of exuberance: Anderson was playing with handkerchief hemlines and knife-pleated skirts, contrasting shaggy knitwear and shaggy leather fringing with chainmail sleeves and raw-edged hems, loosening up the futurism that often defines his silhouette.

The pews had been turned inwards creating narrow catwalks - fashion quite literally in your face, a neat metaphor for this design collective. Led by creative director Demna Gvasalia and his brother, CEO Guram, they have been happily - and rather smartly as it may turn out - upturning show protocol whilst also garnering the ecstatic attention of the fashion cognoscenti with their anarchic take on everyday streetwear.They announced last month that from January next year they will show their mens and womenswear together and only twice a year, in a catwalk presentation that will take place two months earlier than the traditional start of the international shows. Are you keeping up? On top of this, to evade high-street copies, they will show spring/summer in January, not autumn/winter (as they did this season) and the product will drop in the stores by February. Deconstructed, their thinking makes sense, and is much easier to achieve when you are still small and nimble. It will be interesting to see if Demna can persuade his new boss at Balenciaga, where he is now creative director, to follow suit. His first collection, showing on Sunday, is the hotly anticipated ticket of Paris this week.
Again, Dries eschewed the grandeur of the Hotel de Ville for a nondescript warehouse, accessed through a garage door. The clothes within, however, contained all the decadence, opulence and imagination that Casati and her lover (the corrupt poet Gabriele D'Annunzio), fashioned their reputations and wardrobes with.
The opening look of capacious faux leopard-fur trousers felt more Muppet Show than 1900 Grand Canal palazzo, but Casati's sense of drama and opulence was felt everywhere else. Leopard print, rich velvet and decorative pearls were repeated themes, matched with Prince of Wales check and sporting blazers for day, then ramped up with sequins and ornate jacquards for night. Star pieces included a beautiful leopard cape worn over wide creased cream trousers, as well as an audacious velvet leopard print suit. Casati kept a pet boa snake (as well as cheetahs with jewelled collars), and snake print decorated ankle boots with sculptural heels, or wound their way across a long black crepe evening dress and the lapel of a tuxedo. Bordeaux and champagne velvets used in sweeping gowns, skirts and sleeveless tops were redolent of the thick draped curtains that hung from her palazzo windows, keeping prying eyes from the opium and cocaine being experimented with inside.
They're here in Milan to celebrate the biggest Fendi Ginza pop-up store in Tokyo, which opened last November. But no one really cares about that, they just want their picture taken next to one to post on all social media channels: #Fendirumi. Clever Fendi. Should your heart desire you can buy your own fluffy bag charm sized version from today on Fendi.com and Fendi boutiques, available in a limited edition run of 80. "They perfectly embody the Fendi fun spirit," said Silvia Venturini Fendi.

It was a sentiment that put Marques and her partner Paulo Almeida firmly in line with a raft of young French designers making waves in Paris, such as the collective Vetements and the lesser-known Christelle Kocher at Koché, who for the past few seasons have cast their friends in their shows, and taken an offbeat, often oversized, “I woke up like this” approach to styling. Always inspired by Marta’s younger, twenty-something sister Sofia, who modeled in their pre-fall collection imagery, this was an amble through a “normal” girl’s wardrobe: out with precision, in with the ramshackle; goodbye abstract explorations of “fabrication”, hello comfort.
