Anna Dello Russo Models For Emanuel Ungaro Runway Show

Anna Dello Russo, Japanese Vogue fashion director, modeled in Giles Deacon's first collection show for Emanuel Ungaro. While the show and the collection were magnificent, I cannot help but think it was a lapse in judgment on Dello Russo's part.

Isn't it the ultimate impartiality faux pas?

Balenciaga Watch Runway Debut

Balenciaga Watch Runway Debut

Nicolas Ghesquière debuted quite an amazing timepiece on the Balenciaga runway last Thursday. Looking like a leather strap bracelet, the watch comes in three leathers -python, crocodile and lizard. It's highly limited-edition and will be retailing at $1,400 in Balenciaga stores in November.

Balmain Spring 2011 Collection Review: The Overpriced Wannabe Look

Balmain Spring 2011 Collection Review: The Overpriced Wannabe Look

Balmain's phony rocker wannabe look has become somewhat of a joke at this point. And the new Spring 2011 collection has taken it into the ridiculous costume realm.

Having spent most of my teenage years as a corseted goth, I'm not one to dismiss punk as a legitimate style. But paying $5000 and up for a shredded spike embellished jean jacket? I'll be the first one to point and laugh at the poor soul that falls victim to the trend and buys items from this collection.

There's really not much else I can say of the collection. It's packed with tiny leather or jean shorts; leather or jean capris; t-shirts and tanks; blazers and jean jackets. All shredded, acid washed and spike ...

Video: Gareth Pugh Spring 2011 Presentation Film

Gareth Pugh's Spring 2011 show notes state, "I feel very strongly that Fashion Film should not be seen as a secondary medium to live catwalk events, but a modern alternative."

The 11 minute film, directed by Ruth Hogben, is starring the gray haired 90's model Kristen McMenamy with appropriate techno house soundtrack - setting the mood for those wide-leg wrap pants which are pretty much tailored raver pants. The looks seemingly morph into one another, fact that probably would have been missed had it been a regular presentation.

As always, Pugh's collection, although on the odd side, remained commercially viable offering many superbly tailored jackets, coats and dresses. Some of the dresses, made out of a softer fabric, were almost flowing - ...

Milan Fashion Week: 20 Most Striking Spring 2011 Looks

Milan Fashion Week: 20 Most Striking Spring 2011 Looks

Milan fashion week came to an end two days ago. After the neutrals bore of New York and quirky London came the much needed glamour of Milan. Though we had plenty of neutrals, the bold silhouettes and intense color blocking elevated the spirits. We still have Paris Fashion Week ahead of us, but so far Milan is far ahead in terms of 'wow' factor.

Pierre Cardin Returns To Runway

Pierre Cardin Returns To Runway

I was very excited to learn that Pierre Cardin, an old time French fashion power house returns to produce seasonal collections. He is currently operating one couture store (with loyal clientele of course) in Paris and has licensees producing boring elegant suits and ties for men which Mr. Cardin himself in not particularly fond of.

Unlike other big name fashion houses who return to produce collections after a long hiatus, Pierre Cardin, who is 88, is not hiring a youngling to revive his brand. He's designing the new collections himself. And he's determined to remind to the world of his futuristic avant-garde aesthetic (unlike that boring menswear that carries his name) - especially the young people who might not remember him.

I ...

Who Is On Next? is an annual collective runway show taking place in Milan during Fashion Week. The show's goal is to promote and showcase young and emerging designers from all over the world.

Versus Spring 2011 Collection Review: Kane’s playground

Versus Spring 2011 Collection Review: Kane’s playground

The Versus girl may have been loud and obnoxious in the past, but yesterday she was transformed by Christopher Kane's magic hands. Though she is still playful and full of energy, she also has a new level of sophistication and a more coherent sense of self.

I began following Versus's collections ever since Donatella convinced Christopher Kane to become the head designer for the label three seasons back. I can't get enough of Kane's designs, so seeing how each and every time he managed to infuse himself into Versus's 90's aesthetic is intriguing, to say the least. If the last two seasons were Kane's shout-out to the brand's past, Spring 2011 is all about the future. Long silhouettes and masterful drapery ...

Chelsea Sutrisno Spring 2011 Collection Presentation

Chelsea Sutrisno Spring 2011 Collection Presentation

I liked Chelsea's Fall 2010 collection which has just hit the stores. It's all black; filled with smart little black dresses, leather blazers and leggings - just my kind of ready-to-wear. And so, I had to check out her Spring 2011 collection.

Chelsea held her Spring 2011 presentation at the We The People boutique, which supports local NYC designers (always a bonus). The somewhat small space was filled with gorgeous amazon models wearing Chelsea's clothes. Chelsea said that for Spring she wanted to bring some color into her collection, which I guess for a person wearing black all the time (myself included) means taupe and gray!

The new collection includes a lot of summer friendly fabrics like bamboo jersey ...

Prada Spring 2011 Accessories Close-Up

While I have mixed feelings about the apparel in Prada's Spring 2011 collection. I have no doubt in my heart and mind about the love I feel towards these accessories!

The woven Mary Janes; the striped platforms and handbags; the detailed sunglasses. Amazing!
