With all the shock of the new and bow to history that the rest of the Chanel universe embodies, yesterday Karl Lagerfeld delivered a Scottish-themed pre-fall extravaganza that was nothing short of an haute-Highlands tour de force. Lagerfeld said the collection, set in a beautifully besieged...

It was a knowing nod to the house's experimental use of materials that may just end up the season's most copied look by fashion students the world over. In fact, much of the show had a similar feeling, an approachable your-wardrobe-only-better vibe that marks the most desirable — and salable...

With Alexander Wang not yet ensconced, and the door still swinging after Nicolas Ghesquière's sudden departure, Balenciaga's pre-fall '13 collection was destined to be a neither-here-nor-there affair. Harking back to the namesake's archives for inspiration, the in-house design team cobbled...

Well, Hussein Chalayan made it the theme for his fall collection — in the least sexually provocative way possible, of course. The collection commenced with a slathering of prints — geometrical and subdued in color. Silhouettes were boxy, from the angular blazers to shin-grazing pencil...

Givenchy's fall ad campaign—shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, styled by Carine Roitfeld—is called The Givenchy Rave for a reason. Stella Tennant, Joan Smalls and the other models aren't having seizures; they're dancing, spinning, and kicking their heels up to club music. And right in the...

Perhaps his largest lineup to date, fall saw more of Michele's eclectic characters: his cocktail-party girls, gala-goers, retro-diggers, and his mousy, studious types. Cascades of rainbow chiffon, piles of brocades, layers of sequins, and a ring on every finger (as the designer himself wears)...

It'll be a nothing short of an overhaul of its business model, for which Christopher Bailey seemed to prepare in this fall collection. He refrained from grand creative experiments in favor of recent greatest hits. His various influences of seasons past — Bloomsbury Group, Lucian Freud,...

The latter, prints by Berlin artist Christophe Chemin, were a carryover from Prada's most recent men's collection — in the same venue, no less, a custom-built agora. The mensy looks, too, hailed from the men's side. The sailor caps, the meandering thread, the oversized plaid overcoats all...

Like some exotic menagerie, Jonathan Anderson continued his exploration and gathering of the unknown for fall, producing exquisite pile-ups of shape, texture, and color. He sent out piece after puzzling piece: meandering leather ruffles; zippered collars resembling Japanese kabuto; and bright...
