Begins the marathon of fashion weeks is somewhat in a minor key?

The fashion weeks are for the door, but plenty of fashion houses take their show away from New York. In addition to decide a number of brands to their men – and damescollecties together to show. ‘That is rarely a good idea.”


This month saves the modekaravaan again its tents, after a short zomerbreak. The marathon of fashion weeks begins, somewhat minor, in New York. A handful of famous names leaving this season to Paris, or have already left: Rodarte and Proenza Schouler to move their shows to the coutureweek, in July. Thom Browne and Joseph Altuzarra debut a few weeks in Paris.

Also Ralph Lauren leaves Manhattan, he will receive this season in his own garage, somewhere on Long Island.

New York will receive in exchange both Tom Ford if Rihanna back. And Calvin Klein continues to be a blockbuster to look forward to: the debut of Raf Simons, last season, was, according to most standards, a triumph.

This summer showed Simons the by minimalist John Pawson furnished, pala-tiale shop for Calvin Klein on Madison Avenue integral kanariegeel painting. That no one had seen coming.

London will have a single visit of two valves: Tommy Hilfiger, with a see now, buy now spectacle, and Emporio Armani. Milan will be exciting. The mannenweek there has recently been anemic. Quite a few major brands combine their mannencollecties now together with the ladies. That is rarely a good idea: such a mixed show lasts, logically enough, twice as long, and in the mode seems twenty minutes is almost always an eternity.

The result is that the damesweek now well stuffed. After the Gucci show this season, Jil Sander, Missoni and Etro boys and girls together. At Jil Sander join Lucie and Luke Meier to as designers. At Roberto Cavalli will debut the talented Paul Surridge. He replaces the blondgekrulde Norwegian Peter Dundas. Good news.

Paris rearranged this time a number of medium-sized guns. Olivier Lapidus takes Lanvin got: the knives of the critics are now all cut. Natacha Ramsay-Levi begins at Chloé, Clare Waight Keller at Givenchy. Waight Keller unveiled last summer, is already a teasercampagne without clothes, but with a bunch of cute kitties. Believe us: Givenchy is meow!
