Public School Spring 2015.
“While androgynous streetwear may be the thing right now, Public School‘s strongest womenswear looks were its most feminine, like this pleated skirt and blousy, knit pullover.” -Karin Nelson
Dion Lee Spring 2015
“Dion Lee took to the road for his spring collection, sprinkling seat belt-like straps and motorcycle chains throughout—yet even with this more pared-down track jacket and reflective skirt combo, it wasn’t entirely clear where he was headed.” – Karin Nelson
Suno Spring 2015
“Suno designers Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis have always had a playful approach to prints, which, for spring, is best exemplified by this blush floral number with its graphic blocked handkerchief hem.” – Sam Walker
Alexander Wang Spring 2015.
“One of the highlights of Alexander Wang‘s sporty, sexy Spring 2015 collection was this dress, which is designed for the girl who wants to have her Stan Smiths and wear her high heels, too.” -Alix Browne
Altuzarra Spring 2015.
“Inspired in part by Rosemary’s Baby, Joseph Altuzarra explored the notion of sinister prettiness, which is best exemplified with a woven leather pencil skirt and prim cardigan.” -Karin Nelson
Adam Selman Spring 2015
“A far cry from the barely-there, shimmering custom-designed gown worn by Rihanna to the CFDA awards, Adam Selman’s Spring 2015 collection merely hinted at seduction with this billowy, semi-sheer set.” – Sam Walker
Rachel Comey Spring 2015
“Rachel Comey can do some beautiful things with humble materials like “dirty” or indigo dyed denim, but the knockout of her fall collection was this beaded dress.” – Alix Browne
Lisa Perry Spring 2015
“Often inspired by the artists whose work she collects, this season Lisa Perry looked to Barnett Newman’s color field paintings—the influence of which is most clearly seen in this long column gown with billowing sleeves.” – Caroline Grosso
Rodarte Spring 2015
“Ophelia? Mermaids? The Santa Monica Pier? Whatever their starting point, by the end of their gorgeous Spring 2015 show (when this hand-painted, embroidered net gown appeared) Kate and Laura Mulleavy had us hook, line, and sinker.” – Alix Browne
“With the world seeming like an increasingly fraught and aggressive place, Maria Cornejo set out to evoke a “certain peaceful naïveté” for Spring, which she did—quite beautifully—in dresses like this one.” -Alix Browne
Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2015
“Putting his love for the ‘60s and it’s music at centerstage, Tommy Hilfiger presented a collection of rock ‘n roll-inspired looks, like this patent leather skirt and Woodstock-ready suede top.” -Sam Milner
Tory Burch Spring 2015
“Tory Burch says her spring collection is a “play between raw and refined,” which is best demonstrated in this ultra-chic canvas tank dress’s unfinished fringe seam.” – Nora Milch
Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2015
“Spring is shaping up to be the season of mesh, but no where has the sporty material looked so elegant—and so luminous—as at Calvin Klein, where Francisco Costa used it to create his finale of silvery evening looks.” – Alix Browne
Proenza Schouler Spring 2015
“Working this season with snakeskin, Proenza Schouler continues to forge new ground in fabrics and textures, and in doing so, create clothes that look entirely modern.” – Karin Nelson
Opening Ceremony Spring 2015.
“The summer of ’91—when Humberto Leon and Carol Lim spent their days pool-hopping—was the starting point for Opening Ceremony’s exuberant collection, refreshingly presented as a play written by Spike Jonze and Jonah Hill, and starring Bobby Cannavale, Elle Fanning, and Catherine Keener.” -Karin Nelson.
Lela Rose Spring 2015.
“Because of her entertaining prowess (there was a recipe for shaved asparagus and mint salad on every seat at her show) Lela Rose is often called the Martha Stewart of her generation, but does anyone recall Martha turning out anything like this polka dot kimono dress?” -Alix Browne
Tim Coppens Spring 2015.
“Tim Coppens took normcore to the next level with nylon windbreakers, mesh tank tops, jogging pants, and track shoes (made in collaboration with Common Projects).” -Christina Caldwell
J. Mendel Spring 2015
“Designer Gilles Mendel, who this season collaborated with the artist Enoc Perez, took a more aggressive approach to his usually ladylike designs by pairing strong opposing colors, as in this black, white and yellow gown.” – Sam Milner
Polo Ralph Lauren Spring 2015
“The first show for Polo Ralph Lauren included a state-of-the-art holographic water works runway and pieces that echoed the Ralph Lauren DNA, such as this this floral sundress.” – Sam Milner
