The reason why I don't write reviews on the extraordinary fashion houses of Chanel, Hermès or Louis Vuitton this season is not because I don't find their originality visionary and inspiring as always but because I want to focus on the no less ravishing but practical ready-to-wear collections in this season's fashion weeks.
Here are a few of my most favorite looks from collections I found most intriguing.
3.1 Phillip Lim
The biker's girlfriend moto jacket, leather heels and ragged shearling coats
The photomontage print, stitch-like chain embellishment, riot of color and exaggeration of fabric
The ancient Asian temples inspiration, multicolored grosgrain ribbons, crocodile jacquards, round volumed design and metallic gold madness
The Balenciaga hinted round form jackets and the ultrasonic welded embroideries with a touch of pastel
The floral appliquéd tracksuit, the winged insects encrusted top, men's oxfords and "love", "happy", "help" on thick gold chains
The Guggenheim's Picasso Black and White inspiration, leather-pony skin-silk combined geometry and the signature to-die-for leather jackets
Rag & Bone
The vintage flight suits obsession, "bon chic, bon genre" rubberized tweed jackets and houndstooth craziness
The Rossella Jardini's British ode, regal tartan jackets, oversized riding hat and absolutely breath-taking heels.
There is no look in the collection that I don't madly love.
