  • Charlotte Knowles RTW Fall 2020

    4 days ago - By WWD

    This was a tale of two collections: Lovely leather pieces, outerwear and knits shared a runway with sheer, skintight printed trousers and flimsy dresses that resembled scraps of fabric.

The stylish standouts here were a slim, cognac-colored leather corset; a cropped shearling jacket; a short and sweet knitted cape with little tassels and a mauve sweater slashed at the bottom. The long and...

  • 16Arlington RTW Fall 2020

    4 days ago - By WWD

    16Arlington made its runway debut in a highly ambitious way, with a wider-ranging collection that included more daywear, plenty of show-stopping gowns - and a guest appearance from Lena Dunham.
    Designers Marco Capaldo and Kikka Cavenati felt that their woman is now all grown up and needed more balance in her wardrobe, so they broadened their offer to include more pared-back looks in the form of chic leather staples in neutral tones, from suits to classic trenches and color-block midi dresses.
    Those looks spoke to the minimalist wave that's overtaking the runways and the streets right now...
