ICYMI: What went down in London, Milan and the rest of the fashion world
Fashion by the 'gram
1. Charles & Keith made its LFW debut
The Singapore founded label made its international debut at fashion week by partnering with emerging label Molly Goddard. Models in the designer's signature, colourful tiered dresses and dreamy tulle creations walked down the runway wearing minimalist mules, ballet flats and sandals from Charles & Keith. If you're loving these chic staples as much as we are, pre-order your favourite styles here.
2. Victoria Beckham celebrated the 10th anniversary of her label in London
Instead of showing in New York, Victoria Beckham showed her spring/summer 19 collection in her Dover Street boutique with 250 guests including family members, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, Harper and David Beckham. As part of her 10th anniversary celebrations, iconic models like Liya Kebede, Stella Tennant and Tasha Tilberg, walked their first Victoria Beckham show. All 30 runway looks are available to shop exclusively at victoriabeckham.com, and you can also shop her 16-piece 10th anniversary collection which includes clutches, pumps, oversized sunglasses and necklaces.
3. Riccardo Tisci's first Burberry collection was a hit on Instagram
Diet Prada may have given Riccardo Tisci's debut collection for Burberry the thumbs down, accusing it of not having a central theme, but Instagram was here for it. After the show, limited edition pieces including a Thomas Burberry Monogram logo t-shirt, trench and pencil skirt, under #TheBSeries, were immediately available for purchase on Instagram for 24 hours. Select products were also available on WeChat for the Asian market and at Burberry's London flagship on Regent Street.
4. Harry Styles stars in the Gucci cruise 2019 campaign
It's another day, another Harry Styles-fronted campaign for Gucci — this time for its Cruise 2019 tailoring collection. The debonair Styles was shot in the gardens of Villa Lante, a 16th century estate in Italy. His co-stars included a coterie of adorable farm animals including piglets, lambs and goats. But we've still got our eye on the fashion: Lots of dramatic collars, oversized brooches, silk scarves, headbands, tapestry prints, checks and velvet suits, which Styles carries off with effortless aplomb.
5. Padma Lakshmi repeated a red carpet look at the Emmys
We repeat a celebrity repeated a look on the red carpet. We've already seen Tiffany Haddish rock the same white, Alexander McQueen gown for several occasions, to get the most bang fo her buck. Similarly Lakshimi, committed this fashion 'faux pas' with a purpose. "I think in this day and age we should stop sending the message to young women and girls that we all have these endless closets of clothes we never wear more than once, especially on a red carpet," she wrote on her Instagram post. She first wore the gorgeous J.Mendel gown to the Women of the Year awards in Mumbai in October 2017. "The hours that it takes, the artisans' labor and the gorgeous fabrics all deserve to be worn again and treasured," she said. "It seems wasteful not to enjoy these dresses."
6. Simone Rocha for Moncler Genius is now available at DSM Singapore
As part of the Moncler Genius collection, Valentino's Pierpaolo Piccioli, Simone Rocha, Craig Green, Noir's Kei Ninomiya, Fragment's Hiroshi Fujiwara, and Francesco Ragazzi of Palm Angels have all created capsule collections revolving around the iconic down jacket. "Moncler means nature, protection, activity, ambition, refinement, establishment and practicality. A mix of beauty and function is my interpretation of it", said Rocha. Shop her women's collection of Victorian era-inspired voluminous silhouettes at Dover Street Market Singapore now.
7. Based on the latest Fendi spring/summer 2019 show, PVC coats and bike shorts aren't going anywhere
Karl Lagerfeld showed his latest collection for Fendi in Milan where celebrity models like Adwoa Aboah, Kaia Gerber and Bella Hadid walked the runway. The modern, tailored yet streetwear-influenced collection had a brown, orange and taupe palette. But a slew of clear PVC coats, body-con bike shorts, logo mania and utilitarian pockets showed these trends are still going strong.
