The brand represents the first ever luxury active sportswear brand. A new collection that brings together men’s and women’s active sportswear in one single show of force. On a racetrack-cum-runway, to the sound of a live motivational speaker, a mixed cast of models, boxers and workout obsessives stomp by in the Autumn/Winter 2017 collection, while parkour runners – including world champion Ryan Doyle – perform daring stunts.
The latest Plein Sport offering might look like street style but don’t be fooled: these are not fashion pieces; these are the ultimate in authentic, high performance sports kit. Featuring sweatshirts, puffer gillets and bombers, hoodies, leggings, backpacks and cross trainers, the collection fuses cutting-edge technology with intelligent, luxurious materials. Staying true to the brand’s mantra that function leads and design follows, innovations include sleeve pockets for i-phones, pioneering lightweight footwear and anti-sweat, breathable fabrics.
Classic black leather biker pieces are cut in with panels of gold on back floral jacquard: hard and soft. Jeremy Scott is proud to have recruited Judy Blame to contribute his hand-hewn headpieces: berets strafed with metal hardware that resemble disassembled Swiss Army knives. Beauty conjured up through the magic of feeling. Pre-Fall or Pre the Fall? From then, for now, until when? Beauty and freedom are worth fighting for. That marabou rainbow burns brightest when set against a dark background. This season Scott delivers an anti-uniform for whats to come. So rise up and get dressed before the clock counts down to zero.

Its signature industrial attitude is celebrated with the oversized parkas with exaggerated hoodies. Leather jackets are embellished with Japanese monograms. The ninja-inspired look also informs the women’s capsule collection, which is launched on the men’s fall catwalk. The focus is on the hips with tie-belts cinching a leather dress, as well as a tunic crafted from denim with quilted nylon inserts.
The feminine attitude of short plissé pinafore dresses is empowered through the insertion of industrial metallic hardware, layered onto printed shirts. Silhouette is inspired by the kimono design. Japan’s denim tradition meet the brand’s upscale skills in the jeans, which feature a mix and match of fabrics, such as quilted nylon, as well as embroideries of Japanese monograms and symbols.
Hotfooting out of the city to hike the Canadian winter mountains, the Dsquared2 men and women of Fall Winter 2017 are taking a new style attitude to the slopes. Glamour meets grunge “GLUNGE” in a big and bold lineup constructed with the essence of Dsquared2. For the debut co-ed show, men’s and women’s looks are designed coequal. Opulent, feminine and rugged details appear in lookalike pieces.
“We created a look for him and her, and her and him. She wears bouquets of flowers on her dresses, he wears them printed on his shirts and jackets; his long knit over a shirt which is also her look. For our first co-ed collection guys and women are style equals, glamorous mountaineers,” Dean and Dan Caten.
The brotherhood of Versace – the strength of individuals, the power of unity. Pride in identity, the coming together of clans, and the sense of belonging from new archetypes for a male wardrobe. Outerwear includes long, knitted coats that wrap the body, or sharply tailored coats that are held by belts to dramatize the silhouette.
“This is a collection about the different tribes of Versace men, and the powerful positivity that can happen when men from different places, different cultures join together.” Donatella Versace.
The Italian luxury fashion House, celebrates a new chapter in its history with the launch of the Fall/Winter2017-18 Men’s Ready-to-Wear collection –the first created by Guillaume Meilland as the category’s recently appointed Design Director.
The collection is driven by binary dialogues: two principal silhouettes (one elongated and tailored; the other more voluminous and relaxed); the merging of cross-generational design thinking (time-honored Italian artisan meets state-of-the-art research laboratory); outerwear icons such as naval peacoats and flight jackets are reconstructed in unexpected fabric pairings; and a soft palette is juxtaposed with tiny flashes of explosive colour.
