It can already be said that hardly any fashion month has had so much to celebrate like this one so far. Many anniversaries of different labels have made our hearts beat a little faster. Above all of them, the 50th birthday of the American label Ralph Lauren. Many familiar faces sat down at the venue next to the Bethesda Fountain in New York to honor the designer. Among them, the most famous talk show host Oprah Winfrey, who gave a speech in the honor of Lauren. For his see-now-buy-now collection, he definitely focused on his typical all-American style. Especially noticeable: models walked down the runway as parents with their children. Along with this mood, one trend stood out especially: patchwork patterns in a variety of different styles. But not only Ralph Lauren was celebrated. Under the motto “Fringes For Everyone”, the French luxury label Longchamp showed its first ready-to-wear collection in New York.
The vibe was perfect. After all, the city reflected the free, daring spirit of the label and the cosmopolitan collection from creative director Sophie Delafontaine. After two years in the world of Haute Couture, the label Rodarte also returned to the catwalks of New York. In turn, Victoria Beckham celebrated her 10th anniversary back in the British capital after showing in New York the last few years. For this season actually, all eyes were on London Fashion Week even before it actually started because the British Fashion Council announced that none of the labels was going to show fur. This was of course also the case for Burberry, where everyone was curious to see how the new creative director Riccardo Tisci was going to follow the footsteps of Christopher Bailey. After launching the new logo this August, Tisci wanted to bring all generations under one roof with his collection. Thus, he managed a well-done, first show for the British fashion house.
