What To Keep Eyes On
Clare Waight Keller x Givenchy
Clare Waight Keller, the former creative director at Chloé, is to present her first full collection for Givenchy. The “twist” regarding this is that Riccardo Tisci, former creative director at Givenchy, had a very dark romantic style going on for Givenchy. Waight Keller is pretty much the opposite, which makes fashion nerds eager to see where she’s taking the classic french brand.
Fairly new at their workplace, both Maria Grazia Chiuri (Dior) and Raf Simmons (Calvin Klein) succeeded big time last season with this iconic Dior statement and this iconic Calvin Klein coat (see below). Question is if both the designers will follow up the success with new “stopping the fashion world” moments. Not that commercial success, as well as social media attention, should defeat the creative importance, but sell figures are key (unfortunately).
The Next It Look
It’s always fun to speculate what will be the next it look the coming year(s). The 1980s have dominated the runway shows for more than a year now. A lot of oversized silhouettes, shoulder pads, voluminous clothes and office empowerment. These elements have been present for womenswear as well as men’s fashion, but also in the different styles such as minimalistic fashion, fashion blogger, street style, sporty and bohemian. Question is, will this look last a bit longer or will we find a new decade to intrepret?
Yeah yeah, I try to be as neutral as possible here but I undoubtedly have my favorite designers too. This September I’m extra curious about where Valentino is heading. With only Pierpaolo Piccioli leading the brand now (he shared it with Grazia Chiuri before), Valentino has slightly changed the design core. Less romanticism and more functionality. In other words, exciting to see if the new path continues or if Piccioli keeps on exploring new styles.
Another brand I’m always love to see is Delpozo. The brand has perhaps yet to reach the full mainstream audience (not even sure if I want it too though), but is always fun and a bit norm-defying with their looks. When a lot of designers are playing safe, in one way or another, we can always count on Delpozo for bringing statement.
Lastly, another designer that will be fun to watch is the up and coming Ulla Johnson who is the fashion world’s new favorite designer. She feels a lot like the new Isabel Marant with bohemian, wearable and likable looks. The wearability level is of the sort that the looks translate directly to streetwear even though they often have an unexpected twist or two. Hope Johnson will deliver another delicate and bohemian collection as the fashion world needs more eclecticism!
Folks! What are you looking forward to see from the fashion weeks September 2017? Streetwear, collections, any specific designer? Xx
