Back to the origins for Lacoste. For the SS 20 Collection the sporty brand decided to come back to its first love setting the fashion show at the French tennis Temple, the Roland Garros, celebrating in this way also the brand’s founder René Lacoste who used to play there. The new creative director Louise Trotter presented a collection sapiently mixing up sport casual items and more elegant pieces: the iconic piqué polo – this time in a new modern oversize shape and fluid shoulders – appears under double twisted suits of pastel colors while technical outdoor jackets are combined white long pleated skirt.
Accessories see the collaboration with two British designers: Helen Kirkum created collage sneakers using mock-ups from the last collection while Rosh Mahtani designed brass jewels.
Geometrical motifs of brilliant color decor pure lined garments and the final outcome is modern yet a bit nostalgic. Finally the beloved crocodile stands out in a bigger size over all the collection’s pieces.
A blast from the past also for Louis Vuitton that gave life to a new modern Belle Époque may wishing for living again a bright era like that time. A colorful dandy army in mini flounced skirts and high-waisted pants matched with pinstriped vests walk down the catwalk with the “It’s Okay to Cry” extended version by the artist Sophie – with the partecipation of WoodKid – on the background.
Rounded shoulder pads appear on checkered shirts as well as mini dresses, jackets and coats. Several motifs – from strips and zig zag to optical and natural patters – alternate white bright block of color… this is the Art Nouveau of the XXI century directly worn by Louis Vuitton woman.
A perfect balance between austerity and playfulness: this is the core of Miu Miu SS 20 Collection, as well as of the very brand’s spirit. Elegant and classic silhouettes of sartorial cuts enrich with frivolous and girlish details, like rouches, trims, embroidered and hand painted flowers and black crystals. Dresses, coats and skirts become real canvas for a dripping painter’s improvisation. Spontaneity and unfinished are the key word of the entire collection.
An algid color palette – where black, white and greys act as lords – let itself enlightened by bright yellow’s touches and pale pastel shades. No mini length are allowed but Miuccia says yes to cocoon coats without sleeves and pinafore dresses of daring décolleté to match with off shoulder cardigans. Miu Miu girl always tries to wear like her mother without giving up her teen attitude.
A colorful joy explosion went on stage at Issey Miyake SS 20 fashion show! The new creative director Satoshi Kondo captured and fully embraced the very cheerful essence of the brand. Dancers, performers and skater girls bouncing, floating in the air, turning around themselves, showed collection pieces proving how the latter can perfectly join and follow every single body’s movement.
The technique, the skilfulness and the great attention to the materials remain Issey Miyake’s mantra: the bouncing color pleats of vivid colors are made with innovative double folding techniques, while the “Dolby” sporty series sees the use of an extra fine yarn applied on nylon for a very light overcome.
In addition to brilliant block of colors the color palette includes stripes, zig zag, big checks and hand painted sketches prints that remind to a human sweet hug, may the most sincere love manifestation. An hymn to the “joie de vivre”!
