THE YEAR IN FASHION 2015

IF ONE THING HAS BECOME CLEAR DURING THE PAST YEAR, IT IS THAT FASHION NEVER SLEEPS. WHAT STARTED IN A SOMEWHAT CONTEMPLATIVE MOOD TURNED INTO A THUNDERSTORM OF CHANGES, ESPECIALLY IN RELATION TO FRENCH FASHION.

Wading back through the year in fashion 2015, travel was most certainly the macro trend; we have been invited to go on a round-the-world trip, designers checked out from long term relationships and labels such as Burberry and Marc Jacobs exited their additional lines. The past year implied farewells at multiple levels.

Au Revoir!

News of designers leaving their labels came as a shock this year: Alber Elbaz has been let go after 14 years of close collaboration and passionate work for Lanvin and Raf Simons decided to leave Dior to focus more on his own work. Alexander Wang bid farewell to Balenciaga and Peter Dundas turned his back on Emilio Pucci. 

Gucci's New Identity

It started with kangaroo fur lined horsebit loafers spotted in every front row and ended in a continuous identity makeover from clothes to campaigns to stores and even packaging. 2015 meant a fast forward jump for the Italian luxury house and the label is still on the rise. 

Imagined Stories

Documentaries from Fashion Giants such as Chanel, Dior and Margiela hit the screens this year, but one thing is for sure: 2015 most definitely was the year of tributes payed to Alexander McQueen. From books to the Savage Beauty exhibition to a theatre play, McQueen events were this year’s most sought-after. 

Award-Worthy

From the British Fashion Awards to the CFDA’s, we shared the most exquisite red carpet looks and celebrated the biggest nights in Fashion. We congratulated Award winning labels from The Row to Rosie Assoulin and J.W. Anderson (who won twice) - to Karl Lagerfeld; it was a year full of outstanding achievements.

Milestones

It was a celebration time for the house of Phillip Lim, whose namesake label turned 10 recently. Another astonishing 30 years to celebrate were announced at Hervé Leger by Max Azria. Here’s to the next decades!  

The Arts And Fashion

Also in 2015 the never-ending love story between fashion and art continued, but this time in expanded dimensions and with great expectations. Whilst the project of the Fondazione Prada took 19000 sqm space in Milan, Louis Vuitton moved to the Grand Palais for its “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez“ exhibition and Hermès invited us for Parisian pastimes at the Saatchi Gallery in London. Karl Lagerfeld introduced a selection of his ultimate works at the beginning of the year and not to forget Alexander McQueen’s savage beauty. Silver lining: The freedom of spirit is a phrase to remember for 2015.
