Erdem Moralioglu’s lookbook, with its eccentric “twinning” of models is the best visuals we’ve seen all year. The floral prints, billowy sleeves, and head-wraps all make up this intricate interim collection. The oversize bows, printed tights to match dresses, and the most wonderful polka dots are the delicate holiday dresses which reminds me of my paradise childhood dreams....

Stephen Wong and Kirk Pickersgill used their Jamaican roots to create their resort 2020 collection. To try to articulate this show with words  will not do it justice. It is truly a revival of vibrancy, each piece livelier and more colorful than the last. It is structured, unstructured, voluminous and ruffled. Pure joy to see the offerings, to see the BOLD MAGIC!...

             Michael Kors Resort 2020 collection includes black. Groundbreaking:). Resort has never looked like this, but I love it. Besides that, this is a mult-layered collection which certainly could not be described as basic, the pieces clearly can be worn in nearly all seasons. These are ‘urbane’ clothes mixing embellishments, polka-dots, and ruffles. The stand out is that the tailoring is impeccable as usual and equally important is that this season (aside from the one piece swimsuit) is absolutely a beautiful mix of...

. Karl Lagerfeld is no longer with us and this Resort 2020 is the first Fendi collection designed without his lead. A magnanimous loss that can never be quantified yet I love what this season has produced! It is seamless owing to Silvia Venturini Fendi, a petite that has been by Lagerfeld side all her life. This season is all about a series of ladylike tailored suits with sharp-cut blazers paired with matching trapeze midi skirts that were deceitfully...

Robyn Rihanna Fenty moves to London?! We love it. Apparently for the last year she’s been working on this new line. As the CEO and artistic director, Rihanna will make history as the first black woman to head an LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) brand. Her power and Instagram influence will probably be the key to her brand,  Fenty’s success. For those of us who follow her on social media we would’ve seen some of the clothes as she’s been wearing select pieces. The salmon pink suit with coordinating fanny pack is what we all want. The only way forward is for...

  Nicolas Ghesquière recently posted on Instagram about the historic TWA Flight Center, he was impressed and so were we. LV!!! The terminal closed almost 20 years ago, but it still looms large in the public imagination. The producers of last year’s heist movie Ocean’s 8 staged a runway show in its sweeping lobby, and before that, it made an appearance in Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can. Next week, after a multiyear renovation, it will reopen as a hotel, complete with 500-plus rooms and an infinity pool. The...

Does the show look over-styled? No! It’s pure inspiration and Prada is the final destination for signature pieces. This resort season, Miuccia Prada was in an understated mindset. Not many embellishments, she describes it as “it’s simplicity as a protest against too much. I’m sensitive to the political situation; it affects me.” Dear Miuccia, we feel you. I love that there were so many girls of color in the show. There was a lot of work with cotton, a varied level of peasant tops with smocking and handmade...

Flotus, Melanie Trump will not be on the cover of Vogue. THANK GOD! First Lady  48, has a “much more important” job than starring on the cover for Vogue, according to her spokeswoman. Melania’s representative was not happy with comments that Vogue’s Editor, Anna Wintour, 69, recently made about how her high-profile fashion magazine vets its cover stars for substance. “To be on the cover of Vogue doesn’t define Mrs. Trump, she’s been there, done that long before she was First Lady,” the spokeswoman said in a statement issued on April 12. Melania was on the cover in 2005. Kindly note that Melania’s name wasn’t even on the cover, she...

Fairwell to Karl Lagerfeld. Immensely talented, always referred to as a genius it will be difficult to come to terms with the fact that we’ll move on without this magnanimous person. I didn’t revere him as I studied the history of his ascent in fashion and it was difficult to forget that he grew up in a Hitler’s Germany, I can honestly say I didn’t trust him. Further his criticism on topics of wealth and health irked and entertained me equally. Lagerfeld was not one to shy away from continuous controversy. He openly criticized women for their size (calling Adele fat) and...
