Blumarine - spring 2015
This crisp white shirt, adorned by fragile, fluttery petals, stood out for originality in a presentation dominated by illusion gowns/cocktail dresses.  I would have loved to see more around this juxtaposition of architectural minimalism and romantic fluidity.

Valentino - spring 2015
I loved the boho detailing atop rigorously neat mod shapes, but the whole collection was inspired by something else entirely: the 18th century British tradition of going on what was called a Grand Tour of Europe after graduating college, and specifically, the Italian leg of that sight seeing adventure. The backstory manifested in a refreshing silhouette exploration for creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, who have meticulously and consistently been building on their new signatures for the house.  Sure, there were looks built on their chaste, long lean dress or the figure skater flippy skirt+ lean top uniform, but hemline variety abounded, waists oscillated up and down, and volumes responded accordingly.  This trip sounds great to me.

Veronique Branquinho - spring 2015
One of my favorite presentations this season, the Branquinho spring range explored an easy, languid silhouette built on a mix of materials and techniques.  The idiosyncratic execution extends the shelf life of the pieces and, of course, elevates them away from the trend game.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Vuitton punching bag is witty and legit. It’s obvs a funny piece of art: 

This limited edition of 25, which comes with boxing gloves, a monogrammed mat and its own embossed luggage (for those who want to take their workout on the road), is part of a series of six collaborations Vuitton has undertaken with artistic luminaries such as Cindy Sherman, Frank Gehry and Rei Kawakubo.

The reactions have been moronic, ranging from “yes, this is real” to a focus on the price, like, “lol, can you believe women pay this much for fashion” to, of course, copy/pastes of the press release.  I’m all for self-referencing jokes aimed at showing the ridiculousness of consumerism and fetishized luxury, and few are as apt as a logo bag turned into a recreational target for aggression practice.  
Come on, internet, I thought you could at least laugh a little.

Sacai - spring 2015
Chitose Abe kept the presentation engaging by representing current trends through her filter.  Uniform pieces, slit pencil skirts, and 70s maxi dresses were all spliced and reconstructed into idiosyncratic looks fluently.  Do we have a name yet for the lace-dense shoes we see here and saw at Givenchy?
