    5 monthes ago - By WWD

    Clare Waight Keller's couture collection for Givenchy fascinated on multiple levels. For one, she addressed the question of house legacy. What is legacy? Do house codes matter? Should they matter?
    After the death of Hubert de Givenchy in March at the age of 91, Waight Keller thought it appropriate to make her fall 2108 collection an homage to the founder.

    For his fall collection at Azzaro, Maxime Simoëns said he'd been reflecting on the “exoticism in the way of seeing women, and I wanted to work in that spirit but with more realism,” which he wanted to express through contemporary cues such as flat shoes, tailoring and the occasional bomber jacket.
    Cut to draped dresses, adorned with leafy designs, printed in neon hues or crystal-encrusted; pleated duochrome metallic gowns that flashed with every step, and a slew of bustier minidresses that made legs go on for miles. Here and there, geometric designs broke the mélange of tropical greenery...

    For Aganovich's first couture collection, after being invited to show on the schedule as a guest by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, the brand's designer duo Nana Aganovich and Brooke Taylor opted to riff on pieces from their fall ready-to-wear line, which is entering stores now.
