If Lam isn’t yet the household name that those ur-Americans are, give him time. American sportswear is his chosen métier and, lately, he just keeps getting better. His loose theme for Spring was wanderlust, hence the Western-ish leather snap-front shirt he paired with contrast waistband pants for look one. Lam cycled through other prototypical Americanisms—the camp shirt, military tailoring, jeans, khakis—but his versions are neither costume nor basic. The denim is dark and crisp and worn as a two-piece suit, boxy of shirt and full through the leg; or it was cut on the bias and swirled into a midi skirt that accompanied a plaid blouson smock top. Elevated but easy was the name of the game here, so a military shirt got the suede treatment and a terrific mint suede coat was crosshatched with a harlequin of pewter-y studs. The look that a lot of women left the Pool talking about was an emerald puff-shouldered blouse belted at the waist below a modest cut-out, worn with neat-as-a-pin khakis. Lam also whipped up a silk knotted bodice gown in that khaki color. It was a surprising choice for evening and, as we like to say here in the States, it looked awesome."

Her white tweed coat twinkled with minute crystals. A huge, padded overcoat rested on her shoulders. When she turned, everyone saw: She had a pair of white lace wings embedded in her back. A wonderstruck intake of breath from the audience sucked the air from the room. Which one of us wouldn’t adore an angel to come down from heaven to sort out the surreal mess the world is in? Somehow, Rei Kawakubo’s collection was a performative expression of human fantasies and childlike longings in a time of gathering darkness and fear. Could it have been a coincidence that she chose to bring people together to watch her throw out her enigmatic suggestions in the Brutalist building which houses the Russian embassy in Paris? Creative resistance has been a theme of this season. The Kawakubo angel—a timelessly chic fashion goddess in her imposing white tweed suit—stood out as the singular persona manifested at the center of a colorful, surreal, cartoonish, kawaii toy- and computer game–referencing parade. “Multidimensional graffiti” were Kawakubo’s words on it, translated by her husband, Adrian Joffe, backstage—her spontaneous writings on the wall of the weirdness which surrounds us. Hello Kitty and plastic kiddy novelties were piled up as neckpieces and embedded in space-princess wigs. The face and blonde tresses of a blue-eyed manga princess adorned floor-length coats. Massive crinolined ball gowns bore digital prints of the work of the 16th-century artist Arcimboldo, who painted surreal portraits made of vegetables and fruit. Photoshopped Dutch still lifes of flowers tumbled over skirts. Sinister black crows appeared on steel-gray satin playsuits under sculptural jackets. Rough-hewn patchwork, spray-painted graffiti art, ruffles, and stiffly contoured red plastic raincoats got mixed up in it all. There will be many readings to be extrapolated from all this. Discussion of Kawakubo’s exploratory collaging of the keepsakes and creative art of millennial culture will be part of it. There will be observations about the parallels she may be drawing between our era of consumption and waste, and other historical hysterical times of decadence. It will certainly be noted that she chose to end this show with classical funeral music. Optimism is not an option Rei Kawakubo can see. Yet, on the other hand—that angel? She might not save the world, but she’ll sure be selling plenty of Comme des Garcons white tweed and lace next season."

At fashion week these days, it’s more like a show and a show - wham, bam, thank you, m'am. No dinner for us. And so, for the second time this season Humberto Leon and Carol Lim treated us to a fashion show wrapped in a theatrical evening experience. Following their feature-length community theatre-style play at Opening Ceremony on the Sunday evening of New York Fashion Week, the bi-continental designers took out a stage in Montmartre for their second Kenzo Memento show in Paris, a kind of diffusion line that reissues and reinterprets old classics from the house archives. They’d flown in Kagura, a theatre troupe from Hiroshima, who put on what Leon called “a type of Kabuki”: instruments were played as a samurai battled between six and eight dragons, played by actors rolled up in large paper tubes. “Obviously Kenzo Takada is Japanese and we wanted to fuse this East-meets-West idea with the denim and the Japanese to tell the story,” he elaborated, touching on the theme of the collection. The play was very well-executed, and, according to Leon, also a parallel to current affairs. “We can really relate to this story in our times. There’s a beast and there’s a sacrifice that happens.” So the Kenzo designers were being political, then, like the season they went out for Bernie Sanders during the election? “I dunno,” Leon answered. “There’s a type of heroine that comes in and saves the village.” With that established, we could move on to the fashion goods. Leon and Lim zoned in on the denim that Kenzo Takada – now 78 and still based in Paris – excelled in during the Seventies. Thirty percent of what they showed was direct replicas, the rest reinterpretations. And as things go with archive stuff, you realise it’s gone down in history for a reason. Denim shirt dresses and jumpsuits carried Kenzo’s old wave motif, while a denim-on-denim section came with topstitching. There were denim kimonos and traditional Japanese hats (but in denim). The show took place in the middle of the play – call it an interlude to our theatrical fashion experience – and while the connection between the garments and the dragon slayer wasn’t clear, the arrival of the retro Kenzo prints seemed to aesthetically bridge what unfolded before our eyes. These were some of the Kenzo greats: the tiger, the tiger in the jungle, the jungle on its own, bamboo madness, and some pixelated cloud prints. “This is the right time to really celebrate what he created and what he did; this crazy time in the Seventies when this kind of fashion was not around. It’s exciting to really hark back and tell the story of his importance in Parisian fashion,” Leon said, possibly referencing that exuberant Seventies resistance that links a little bit to the current political landscape. The first Memento collection, presented last season, hit shop floors yesterday, he said, and the dresses had already sold out. Theatrics aside, there’s a real appetite for nostalgia and revival this season - a nail Leon and Lim hit on the head with last season’s launch of Memento. At Versace last week, Donatella reissued a number of her brother Gianni’s classic prints, and Dolce & Gabbana revisited their lingerie-as-evening greatest hits a few days later. Anniversary collections this month have included Jeremy Scott’s best-of extravaganza celebrating his twenty years in business, a milestone identical to the one marked by Angela Missoni at her show. Tom Ford referenced his own work for Gucci in the Nineties and early Noughties in his eponymous collection, at Diane Von Fürstenberg creative director Jonathan Saunders looked to his founder's wild years in the Seventies, and on Tuesday evening at Saint Laurent, Anthony Vaccarello paid tribute to Pierre Bergé, who died in August, turning the volume up on YSL glamour. By all accounts, the Kenzo designers are capturing the zeitgeist - and some revenue, too.

When she and her band of textile specialists took a day-trip out of London to visit Great Dixter house in East Sussex, its flower borders were in spectacular bloom. The photographs of what they saw filled walls in the studio and set Burton off. “It was about, Britishness, being in the garden, and the healing power of nature,” she said. Transplanted to Paris, the McQueen narrative had grown. There were pergolas with canopies draped with embroidered flowers, a brick runway. The girls, with their drenched-in-a-downpour hair advanced along the garden path in studded flat boots, a crowd inspired both by the flowerbeds and by the history of an English country house. Famously, British aristocrats will wear their country clothes till they fall apart, and store away ballgowns, wedding dresses, bed linen and other textiles in trunks for generations. The ‘House Style’ exhibition at Chatsworth House had also fertilized this collection. The beautiful results began with deconstructed, falling-apart raincoats over pink chiffon ruffled dresses. Quilts, eiderdowns and wallpaper prints inspired patch worked coats. Gardener’s waxed cotton Barbours became khaki dresses and outdoor pants. Tailoring picked up English gentleman black and white checks and military tattersall. Decaying wedding dresses were brought down from notional attics and their remains worn over black trousers. It was all in the imaginative seam Sarah Burton has sewn since she succeeded McQueen. She’s a nature-lover at heart, whose team is capable of cultivating the most incredible hand-crafted textiles. This season, some of the newest harked back to the fifties in some incredibly-colored glassy synthetic organza dance dresses in poppy and peony hues. It ended with eveningwear which will undoubtedly costume weddings held in grand country estates all over the world next summer."

In 1961 Juan Carlos Antonio Galliano was born of Spanish parents Anita and Juan Carlos Galliano. In 1966 his parents emigrated to London with Juan and two daughters. He attended Wilsons Grammar School and excelled in languages. While doing his A levels, he took up textiles and put together a portfolio to present to St. Martins College of art. He was accepted. He experimented with bias cutting, reviving and refining it. He worked with Tommy Nutter, in Savile Row, London's famous tailors street. He noticed that sleeves swung forwards, as if cut on the curve, so that you could really move your arms. He began cutting sleeves in a spiral so that his armholes could be neat and even cut trousers on the bias to make legs look slender. During 1983 at the Victoria and Albert Museum costume archives, they allowed John to spend time sketching and examining dresses by Vionnet and other classic designers and he kept this research secret. In 1984 his graduation collection at St. Martins was 8 garments called "Les Incroyables" a fantastic, impeccably produced series of garments based on French Revolutionary garments of the 1790's. Joan Burstein of Browns, snapped up all the dresses and put them in her window. They sold out at once, one was bought by singer Diana Ross. He has managed to balance fantasy and classicism, which is very difficult to achieve. Galliano raids history for ideas. From the Highlands of Scotland to the Russian steppes, from thirties style sleek evening gowns, to kilts, tulle ball gowns, farthingales, frock coats, hourglass silhouettes. His interpretation is unique, with a highly defined sense of the theatrical, and his technical skills are thoroughly modern. He has trained himself in the craft of fashion, not only the art. His garments have a tremendous sense of romance and whimsical charm, coupled with precision tailoring. His exquisite slip dresses, floating ball gowns or exotically tailored suits, float above fashion, remarkable in their unashamed loveliness. He also depends on a team of superbly artistic designers for his accessories, Stephen Jones for hats, Manolo Blahnik for shoes, Odile Gilber for hair styles and Stephenie Marais for make up. They all seem to adore him and his clothes. John also gives chances to young designers to work with him. Parisienne Vanessa Bellanger is one of his assistants at present. LUKE LEITCH of Vogue writes I recognized Lady Amelia Windsor only because I am a forelock-tugging Brit and we chatted at Burberry once—she was very pleasant. Plus, those bee-stung lips. But the rest of the influencers in the front row at John Galliano tonight? Heaven knows who the semi-fabulous blonde in the slitted olive dress was; she was sticking her excellent right leg through that slit to the photographers like she was an estate agent on commission and her leg was a condo. And the professionally made-up brunette with a ski-slope nose in a one-shoulder tiger jacquard midi and knee-highs was, frankly, a mystery. As we watched the pre-show cluster-flock of photographers shoot these influencers and more, a normal, lovely looking lady in spectacles and a light blue shirt and I involuntarily rolled our eyes at each other. And yet, this route might well be the best way to go for Galliano. Because, while the man himself deservedly reaps plaudits for his beautiful work at Maison Margiela, his in-limbo own label is still a reputational ghostship. No big editors came to this—no so-called serious fashion people of any significant editorial-fashion-system clout chose to be here. Galliano’s label remains the forgotten victim and innocent bystander of the catastrophe in La Perle. The real scandal in this story is that it’s so good! Bill Gaytten—who gave a special hand squeeze to my fellow eye-roller before indulging in a cheery significant point-and-wave with a very jolly Sidney Toledano—is just brilliant. He seems to phone in the kind of clothes other designers labor over yet get slightly wrong. This was a fun tribute to Cry-Baby, in which the models had Johnny Depp hair and occasionally wore drape-draped teddy boy suits to counter the square-but-hot prom gowns and slip dresses that dominated the show. With the exception of the interaction between kitten heel and parquet that nearly sent some models flying—more glue on the heels next time!—there was nothing to do here but enjoy. Among the self-appointed cognoscenti, Galliano remains in eternal purgatory.

Nicolas Ghesquière staged his Louis Vuitton collection in the Louvre’s Pavillon de l’Horloge, which opened just last year, recently enough that many of the locals had never seen it. The show was held on the Pavillon’s lower floor, in what was once a moat protecting a medieval fortress. Stone walls constructed somewhere in the vicinity of 800 years ago surrounded us on all sides, and the Great Sphinx of Tanis, which dates back to 2600 BC, watched from a perch at the head of the runway. The Louvre’s evolution from fortress to royal palace to museum took centuries, but time is flattened inside. That was the motivating concept behind Ghesquière’s new collection, which combined the frock coats of its royal palace phase with elevated versions of the athletic clothes and sneakers that tourists pad around it in today. Speaking afterward, Ghesquière said, “I thought anachronism was interesting. How today can we incorporate pieces considered as costume into an everyday wardrobe?” Ghesquière has been down this particular rue before. His followers will recall a Spring Balenciaga collection a dozen years ago in which he married Louis XVI frippery with rock tour T-shirts, and cut his razor-sharp suits in scrolling wallpaper jacquards. This time around, the concert tee was a Stranger Things shirt, which got an appreciative laugh from the celebrity bench. Now, as then, Ghesquière has an utterly confident way of combining the unlikeliest of items. Brocade frock coats were paired with silk running shorts of many colors, or, for the less toned of upper thigh, patent leather jeans. The last three centuries have been harder on Marie Antoinette’s kit than on her dear Louis’s. Maybe that says something positive about the progress of women? Rather than resurrecting her wardrobe whole, Ghesquière lifted the corseted and beruffled bustline of her dresses, added straps, and turned them into harnesses that he slung over wispy dresses in chiffon. They didn’t work as well as the sequined cocktail frocks that looked like souped-up versions of 18th-century dressing gowns. Even these were teamed with the new LV sneaker, springy of sole and with an ankle-grazing tongue and pull tab. Ghesquière’s neat trick here was making the past look like the future."

Cue the obvious question: Not a single nod to Black Square? The designer noted that he needed a break from black after last season, instead showing off a dress tacked with sketchbook-style sheets featuring white bead embroideries of the artist’s self-portrait, plus Woman With Rake. Her depiction, plus male figures that resembled Malevich’s familiar Sportsmen, later appeared as sparkly miniature appliqués floating on sheer fabric. Compare these to Rei Kawakubo’s use of Arcimboldo’s vegetable faces for her latest Comme des Garçons ball gowns, and you realize the utter subjectivity of art interpretation. Still, Malevich as inspiration forced Yudashkin into a more minimalist register than usual, and this purer approach reads far more relevant than his dramatic, decadent tendencies. Consider the streamlined opening look, a cropped white Perfecto with ample sloped shoulders and a matching A-line miniskirt, or else a traditional Russian full-length dress reimagined in layers of yellow organza trimmed in grosgrain, nothing more. A fold-over-neckline white blouse shown with roomy khakis and a crisp safari-parka hybrid might have been too basic for Yudashkin’s runway a few seasons ago; now they looked just right. And it’s probably for the best that he resisted replicating the Cubist outfits piece by piece—a softly striped dress came closest. At his side once again was daughter Galina Yudashkin, who takes some credit for leading Dad in this direction. Even if the athletic stripes seemed gratuitous, and the brushstroke effects achieved through pleating and embroidery no longer bore any resemblance to Malevich aside from their intense red, Yudashkin made a strong impression."

""We live in a time with Instagram and Facebook. We're over exposed to imagery and overexposed to something that is perfect or made by machine. I wanted to come back to that rawness when things are done by hand,"" she said. THE SCENE: The Serpentine Pavilion, this year designed by rising African architecture star Francis Kéré. Guests wrapped themselves in Roksanda blankets to keep out the Autumn morning chill. THE COLLECTION: Roksanda talked of going back to a handmade crafted feel, ""More earthy,natural crafty,"" she said backstage, yet her long languid silhouettes had great sophistication. There were tiered linen maxi dresses, and satin poet blouses with extravagantly draped balloon sleeves, fluid hammered silk midi dresses worn over trousers and sinuous columns layer under sheer gowns, bearing naïve hand embroidered flowers. ""They represented a beautiful garden and each dress represented a flower and different elements of nature,"" she said. THE SYNOPSIS The languid elegance of the silhouettes belied the sophistication in this collection.

In recent seasons, Han Chong has turned the brand into a source for cool, fashion-forward party looks—lace or otherwise—that 20- and 30-something women actually want to wear (and can afford). That’s surprisingly hard to find, even on the crowded New York Fashion Week calendar. Chong’s peers in the contemporary space might rely too heavily on trends or overwork their clothes, but he keeps things light and fun. That doesn’t lead to controversial, boundary-pushing fashion, but he’s meeting a need. Before the show, a colleague made the excellent point that Self-Portrait is also perfect for teens searching for unconventional, unstuffy prom dresses, or college girls going to holiday mixers. The ultra-minis, like the glitzy one Teddy Quinlivan wore, might be too sexy for an 18-year-old, but the leggy influencers in the front row will snap them up. A few of those dresses came in sparkly chiffon with a single pouf shoulder and felt vaguely Hedi Slimane–ish. Separates are still a work in progress for Self-Portrait, but the black trousers trimmed with bows made a convincing case for the evening pant. They were styled with statement shirting or striped bustiers, and felt more relaxed than the vibrant suits that opened the show, which Chong said were a nod to Mick and Bianca Jagger in the ’80s. Instead of lace, Chong experimented with lighter—and fussier—fil coupé this season. On ruffled tops and ruched miniskirts, it didn’t have quite the ease of the brand’s signature guipure; the floaty, star-spangled, and polka-dot numbers seemed more realistic for Chong’s city-dwelling customer.

Suspended within the lattice that connected these 30 singular looks were the patterns of butterfly wings; a disco club in Cali, Colombia; fragments of his recent collaboration with Colette; salsa dancing; his five-week summer vacation among family in Ibiza; Werner Herzog’s Aguirre, the Wrath of God; and a sincere desire to reflect diversity (check out his casting). It’s safe to assume that guests—and you, as readers—would pick up on some of this, but not all, and Cortazar would never expect that of you. He’s far more concerned with what the clothes express, which is why he opened the show as an exhalation of white poplin, sheer veiling, and textural knits in preparation for a heady immersion into seductive alternative suiting and luxe sportswear, followed by a final celebration of graphic impact and slinky form. All the while, in the spirit of collage, he toggled between assembling items irregularly by instinct and painstakingly seeking symmetry, as with the leather pieces puzzled into a bra and ample top. But if you’re wondering how everything relates, consider a continuum of gutsy at one end and graceful at the other. It’s probably a good sign that most of the looks, despite their assorted compositions, would land toward the middle—whether a stiff neoprene-backed trench worn as a dress, or the sculpted layers of butterfly-pattern intarsia that riffed on the Colombian flag colors as a poetic close to the show. Meanwhile, Cortazar’s accessories offered quite the juxtaposition: prayer beads in hand versus store security tags as clip-on earrings. Here, the implied message was that you can exist as both spiritually observant and the property of consumer culture. Digest that one for a while. And once you do, you’ll likely arrive at Cortazar’s range of denim, masterfully bleached to evoke a cloud-filled sky. It seems like a winning commercial idea; he has imagined the most universal, democratizing clothing of all as an elevated, escapist daydream.

There were also pictures of Chow in civilian mode, in her denim jumpsuits. ""She had an amazing wardrobe of haute couture, which she was able to mix with classical American denim or tank tops, or sailor-style pieces, and then the ultra glamorous pieces. I loved that mix, the glamorous tomboy."" THE SCENE: New Order pumped through the palazzo as models paraded round in a succession of fresh, colourful looks. A smattering of Italian It-girls showed off their frilly lace, patent and pearl-studded Philosophy creations and eagerly snapped the finale, where the girls came out in pairs, dressed in white cotton dresses and cream plimsolls. Serafini is firmly establishing himself as an Italian pretender to Isabel Marant's crown as the queen of easy chic. Japanese denim jumpsuits, pleated satin mini dresses, high-waisted cotton trousers, little sailor-collar smocks and handfuls of wafting maxi dresses cinched at the waist: there were numerous zesty items that would be easy to yank on as soon as the sun came out, and make their wearer feel instantly reinvigorated. Endlessly wearable invitations to the Philosophy girl's personality - from flirty to serene to slouchy, Serafini's got every eventuality nailed. This will sell and sell.
