    2 monthes ago - By WWD

    Gypsy Sport's spring show signaled a shift in design philosophy for Rio Uribe. He's still offering up a wildly do-it-yourself approach to streetwear that challenges normative ideas of what's sexy and appropriate, but moving forward, he'll be doing so with a hallmark of sustainability, switching from mass production into artisanal.
    Backstage after the show, Uribe explained the move: “collection was 95 percent sustainable materials or repurposed materials and what I wanted people to take away was really appreciating fashion, but also being able to step out of that and appreciating the world...

    It's always harder to review a collection you really believe in. You want to mention as much as possible to do it justice. That was the case with Chloé and Parris Gordon's spring offering for Beaufille, brimming with so many considerate elements that expanded on their narrative of harmonious contrasts.
    The collection began with a focus on three main summer men's wear staples - the Hawaiian shirt, the single-breasted jacket and tailored trousers - which the sisters designed women's pieces around to play up the core ethos of masculine and feminine.

For the first time, there was an abundance of eyelets and ruffles, but in classic Rodriguez fashion, they were styled back for the street.

The multiple eyelet and...

    For fall, Rebecca Minkoff launched her “brand revolution” titled “I Am Many,” inspired by the feminist movement. “For as long as I can remember, women have been marketed to ‘be brave, be ambitions, be bold,'” Minkof asserted. “But here we want to talk to all that you are. is doing many things.

    “Passport to Wonderland. Women of the world. Have you seen my boat?!” Stacey Bendet exclaimed while introducing her spring collection, filled with the sort of eclectic, feminine and wildly entertaining tenets that have come to define Alice + Olivia.
    Her presentations are often elaborate stagings that transport guests to places both whimsical and far-flung, and she didn't disappoint: I mean, there was even a yacht! Decked out with A+O flair, it was available for docked overnight stays at Chelsea Piers through the end of fashion week.
    In tandem with Bookings.com, she imagined vignettes based...
