Reminiscent of a garden bursting with Spring blooms, Peter Pilotto’s new collection paints its wearer as a woman bursting with warmth and light. Presented at the Polynesian restaurant, Trader’s Vic, surrounded by the bamboo shoots and tiki carvings, the collection’s botanical prints, silky drapery, and gently feminine silhouettes were made up of palette of colors like marigold, melon, periwinkle, and chartreuse. Some of our favorite looks included the lavender floral dress with the bishop sleeves and the ombre floral pant suit.
Weaving through of a maze of wrought iron fencing, models showcased the effortless silhouettes and ample layering of JW Anderson’s SS19 collection. A manifold of cuts, prints, and styles, each look stood uniquely on its own, while a uniform head scarf (in either black or white), created a sense of continuity throughout. The collection also included a collaboration with Converse, which encompassed a streamline athletic sole and sporty details for the traditional high-top sneaker.
Inspired by times of the past, when a cabal of counter-culture characters sought self-expression, Erdem’s new collection brings the highlights of Victorian-era fashion to the underground club scene of the early 1990s. Embroidered taffeta, lace yolks, and voluminous tulle flounces made their way through an arched hallway filled with marble figures, juxtaposed by less classical elements like polka dots and stripes. Two looks that were particularly eye-catching were the red-and-white polka dot and floral printed gown with chiffon ruffles, and the wide-shouldered plaid jacket and trousers set—both of which complemented by wide-brimmed hats with sheer black veils.
