Retro references, indeed. Classics are reinterpreted in this Wes Anderson-inspired collection with extra attention paid to details and design. While there is a keen eye for meticulous detail, provided praise for Margot Tenenbaum’s nonchalant look and Richie “The Baumer’s” seventies tennis cool aesthetic, balances that out.

Chain-strapped handbags, double-breasted coats, collar enclosures, trousers, pumps, flats, and fur-trimmed jackets all take a turn for eccentricity with an infusion of old world charm. Ready-to-wear pieces, the majority of them with A-line silhouettes, range in tweed, double-faced cashmere, fur, supple nappa leather, and soft alligator skin.

Bally’s staple handbags, Corner and Sommet, complement newer styles such as the B-Turn top handle, Eclipse shoulder bag, and adjustable-strapped Sport Corner bag. Pumps and flats display a black-and-white professionalism in the Tuxedo collection, and Morsetto slingbacks and wedged boots are casual in stretch leather.

“Overall this season, we’ve worked with literal retro references, paired with Bally’s heritage and know-how but rendered effortlessly,” said Pablo Coppola, Bally’s creative director, of Bally‘s fall/winter 2015 collection.

The contorted nudes of Egon Schiele’s expressionistic paintings were the starting point for the. E L L E R Y. Fall’15 collection.
The artist’s subjects, both voluminous and shrunken, twisted and asymmetrical as well as sharp and soft, act as muse. The result; an artful collection.
Restraint is shown in the silhouette this season, allowing the intricate fabrications to be showcased.
Texture is rife with a dynamic mix of suede, brocades, silk wool, appliquéd lace and metallic fringing whilst a steady focus on tailoring steers  E L L E R Y into new territory.
 Classic tux pants, crisp shirting and blazers are in balance with draped elongated dresses, wrap column skirts, shell top dresses and peplum jackets.
Coats are in focus with all-engulfing pods, slim classics and the trench coat; both nonchalantly slouchy and stiffly architectural.
Fall’15 is decidedly modern. It merges the past indefinably as a piece of the future whilst still being so very perfect for the now.

Is it a case of sisters swapping clothes or sibling rivalry? Solange Knowles was seen wearing the same HARBISON coat during Paris Fashion Week that sister Beyonce wore to the New York shows.
Solange stepped out recently wearing HARBISON’s Colorblocked Mosaic Overcoat, making stops at the Fall 2015 Vivienne Westwood presentation and Andrew Gn show.

Sister Beyonce was seen wearing the same coat to the Kanye West x Adidas show in New York on February 12.

NEW YORK, NY March 6, 2015

Trussardi’s fall/winter 2015 collection is a study in the individuality found in sleek, modern women.

Trussardi brought forth tailored, clean silhouettes to contrast with stately, shimmering fabrics. Craquelé leather had a metallic sheen to it, while the natural color shades of nude, cream, gray, spiced green, played against looks in bronze. Plongé nappa leather, teaseled felt, and double cashmere cloth enhanced the body’s curve, adding to unexpected movements in transparent materials, only revealed by light. The use of contrasts continue with patterned patchwork and sweaters made from glimmering metallic yarn.

An appearance of the cool girl on-the-move graced the runway in pantsuits, coats, and below-the-knee dresses in loads of leather. Boned tops and bustiers encompassed seductive simplicity, while the cool shimmer of Lurex and tactile textures appeared on bulky sweaters to create the face of outerwear.

One of our favorite looks was a long-sleeve leather dress in dark gray. Breast pockets, a clean collar, and a high slit offset aviator sunglasses, a waist-worn belt, and high-ankle booties.

NEW YORK, NY March 6, 2015

Mulberry’s fall/winter 2015 collection focused on the elegance of Georgian interiors. Delicate neo-classical design elements from architects Robert Adamand John Soames were credited as inspiration for the London Fashion Week presentation.

A new bespoke filigree motif was continuously interpreted in silk-screen print, embroidery, and woven jacquard to emphasize the material’s references to create a tactile fabric with rich detail. Soft mohair, wool, shearling, and leather make up the collection’s jumpsuits, matching tops and trousers, capes, oversized jackets, skirts, dresses, and coats.

Flattering dresses, both long and short, offer the filigree design silk-printed in differing contrasts and scales. The Hatti Skirt interprets the print differently all onto one garment, while the Apley design, available in a dress and jumpsuit, is offered in a bespoke antique-effect jacquard.

New knitwear also makes an appearance. Classic takes on knit staples, such as the panelled knitted roll keck jumper, take a modern turn to silk, alpaca, and merino. In a variety of looks, embroidery and distressed, faded paintwork references grand old houses and their interiors.
