Each piece is specifically labelled with a unique tag indicating the season from which it originated, spanning 23 years since the Maison’s founding.
Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli have really locked in on the princess dream dress at Valentino. There’s something regal about their clothes. Their diffusion line Red Valentino still fits into the princess motif, but this girl is all good times and frivolity.
The hair and makeup was something resembling inspiration from his own collection in New York; a fresh twist on 60’s mod revealed ladylike beehive updos topped with delicate satin ribbon wrapped around the hair.
Long, electric white hair flowed down to bare knees, parted harshly down the middle with one cropped layer to frame cheekbones on both sides.
CHANEL present a retrospective of the most important events in the history of the legendary fragrance, N°5.
In a rural area in the center of Israel, Auerbach-Halevy has designed a unique house: at first glance it is not recognized as residential, and even at a second one it is difficult to distinguish what is it used for.
This editorial was originally published in February 2012, photographed by Yves Borgwardt for High Snobiety this photo shoot captures our good friend Rick Genest.
Eyes were focused and girlishly intense on the Miu Miu runway; a sense of a “girl about town” sauntered provocatively in dark denims and tie-dyed furs with an ease only Miuccia Prada can create.
To say that this was a collection of exquisite elegance and an almost quiet refinement would be an understatement.
Edvard Munch’s iconic The Scream (1895), among the most celebrated and recognized images in art history, will go on view at The Museum of Modern Art for a period of six months beginning October 24.
Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli are something like conjurers. Their Valentino woman is a perfect mix of modern and mythic femininity. Their clothes have always been blessed by a finely tuned temporal amalgamation of good taste – a little bit of the old, a little bit of the new.
Vincent Castiglia opens his retrospective show at the Sacred Gallery in SoHo, NY tonight. The media are all over him – from the BBC to Reuters, there are a line of TV crews and journalists fascinated by his huge paintings of ” the universal themes of death, sex, birth and decay” as he succinctly puts it each time.
The Resort and Pre-Fall collections are always very telling of what Balenciaga’s Nicolas Ghesquiere has in store for his big ready-to-wear collections.
Not to insinuate that Massimiliano Giornetti has struggled to find his footing at Salvatore Ferragamo, but his Spring collection was so overwhelmingly pleasing, so supremely luxurious and so accessible, that it may just be the apotheosis of everything that Salvatore Ferragamo stands for historically in palpable actuality today.
Using the “opulence of Indochina” as his inspiration, Peter Dundas takes us on a journey of Asian eloquence with delicate dragon and tiger embroideries, kimono jackets, and plunging cheongsams revealing bare backs of the adventurous wearer.

The return of Jil Sander to her eponymous line after an eight year high-fashion hiatus is one of the industry’s most noted, talked about stories.
What has happened to Dolce & Gabbana? They’re officially gridlocked in a campy nostalgia, in a kitschy bucolic loop that looks to be inescapable. A year ago they hit upon something big, a special way of doing things. You can pick out the same notes in last Spring’s show, to last Fall’s foray to this latest collection for Spring ’13.
There was definitely a younger, more carefree side of the Versace woman this season, a generous step away from the dark deviant we saw last season. This was the type of bohemian girl that parties at Coachella and takes movie worthy, cross-country road trips with her girlfriends, evanescent and free.
Marni’s Consuelo Castiglioni decided that this was the season to turn that cushiony notion right on its head. Marni is a label brimming with supposed givens. Marni means color, print, fabulous jewelry – it means leather and fur. Turns out, not so much. Well, at least not this season, anyway.
Giles Deacon shows us a tougher side of spring with his new black and white collection this season. Leather laser cut dresses and silk photo prints were playful, but still sexy revealing bare skin underneath graphic cut outs.
Although the collection was very different, the same playful, quirky spirit could be seen in the presentation, which was held at London’s Claridges Ballroom and transformed into an English country garden with pastel-colored garden gnomes and wheelbarrows dotted around, accompanied by lush floral hangings.
Vivienne Westwood Red Label this season was by far one of the favorite beauty looks of the week, although not quite as ready to wear as the collection itself, definitely bold and interesting to watch as each face told the story of an Andy Warhol painting come to life.
