If you’re like me, September went by in a total flash—but the magic of Fashion Month lives on. From New York to London, Milan and Paris, designers from across the globe wowed with their Spring/Summer 2019 collections. And just because we’re heading into chillier temps, it doesn’t mean you can’t start rocking the trends seen on the runway. Here are some of our favorite looks from each fashion capitol, and how to perfect them now by renting pieces from DesignerShare.
New York: Celebrating Ralph Lauren’s 50th Anniversary
The king of upscale Americana highlighted sumptuous fabrics with embellished details, and a fashion-girl take on rustic Prairie style.
London: Riccardo Tisci Takes Over Burberry
One of the most buzzed about shows this season, all eyes were on Burberry as Riccardo Tisci made his debut as the label’s new chief creative officer. Business of Fashion’s editor-at-large Tim Blanks described the collection as “erotic,” a word not typically associated with the British brand, with a show featuring leather pencil skirts, wild takes on the classic trench, and clinging fabrics.
Milan: Versace, Versace, Versace
Some of the biggest news of Fashion Month? Michael Kors’s acquisition of Versace for a cool $2.1 billion. And as Donatella says, the label is still a luxury brand. Versace’s strong and sexy looks included mod and floral prints galore, stand-out colors and the line’s signature slits-up-to-there.
Paris: A Beach Vacay With Chanel
Chanel has us craving summer rays just weeks after Labor Day. Pastel shades popped on tweed, and the collection lent to a relaxing jaunt to the sea. While many of us can’t regularly dip our toes in the sand as we head into the end of the year, we fully believe in the quirkiest trend seen at the show: The more Chanel bags, the better!
