Ami Fall 2021 Menswear Collection

Alexandre Mattiussi is the consummate fashion fan. To mark the 10th anniversary of his label Ami, he’s nodding to the designers, TV shows, and models that shaped his understanding of the fashion world. On a Zoom call from his Paris studio he name-checks MTV’s *House of Style,* early Helmut Lang collections, Calvin Klein, and the effortless elegance of Caroline Bessette-Kennedy. After a splashy show on the banks of the Seine last season, he wanted to make something with a little more heart, he explains. Consider fall 2021 his homage to his heroes of modern style.

The collection video stars Adut Akech as the Cindy Crawford of his House of Ami segment. She traverses Paris, talks to the camera, and arrives backstage for the show. It’s a sweet reminder of what we miss about Fashion Week—not just the fashion, but each other.

But, of course, the fashion has to talk too.

Loewe AW21 Paris Fashion Week Collection Review

Roll up, roll up! For AW21, Loewe is cancelled. At least that’s the headline in thousands of newspapers that the Spanish house has printed and circulated today in the weekend editions of broadsheets around the world. A specially-produced Loewe newspaper is tucked into the Le Figaro, The New York Times, Le Monde et al with the headline ‘THE LOEWE SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELLED’ splashed across its front page. By now it will have reached millions of unsuspecting readers. And therein lies the genius of Jonathan Anderson. He’s fashion’s Cassandra; the well-dressed woman’s Warhol. For the last year he’s come up with inventive alternatives to physical fashion shows, and in doing so has broadened the appeal of them, transforming them from industry-insider events that make an fleeting splash on timelines into enjoy-at-home physical artefacts, symbolic tokens of the seismic changes we’ve experienced during lockdown.

In recent years, Versace have owned the “you had to be there” fashion show. See a surprise appearance by Jennifer Lopez in 2019, and a surfeit of original supermodels in 2017. But, in the midst of a pandemic, even Donatella Versace – that icon of party-ready glamour – has had to settle for an at-home audience, possibly in sweatpants, and a digital show.

The brand’s autumn collection was shown as part of a digital Milan Fashion Week, via a film starring Bella and Gigi Hadid and Irina Shayk. It featured shiny minidresses, crop tops and va-va-voom LBDs for women, and flowing silk shorts and shiny vinyl textures for men. Also included were a new print and a version of the Medusa logo with a smiley face, which the press release called “a symbol of celebration, freedom and dancefloor communities”. Versace’s collection is ready when – and if –

Onitsuka Tiger AW21 collection review

Runway nostalgia seems to be reaching a peak this season, with designers who strode headlong into the untrodden territory of the fashion film back in September now returning to the familiar confines of the fashion show — albeit pre-recorded, rather than before an audience in real time. One brand that remains committed to doing things differently, though, is Onitsuka Tiger. Making its debut on the official Milan Fashion Week schedule, the Japanese label debuted its AW21 collection in the form of a fittingly titled film, UNFASHIONSHOW.

Doing as it says on the tin, the video —  a slick, neon-bathed studio production — subverts expectations of what you might expect of a designer’s presentation, better resembling “a music video than a fashion show,” says Andrea Pompilio, Onitsuka Tiger’s creative director. Featuring three bright stars of the Milanese scene — singer and performer M¥SS KETA, dancer Gabriele Esposito, and

Jason Wu Fall 2021 Collection: Inside Mr. Wu’s General Store

I love a fun fashion show concept just as much as the next guy, but a food-themed exhibition holds an extra special place in my heart. On Sunday, February 14, Jason Wu kicked off New York Fashion Week as one of two designers to hold a socially-distanced in-person show. He transformed an empty storefront at 666 Broadway into the most charming bodega in lower Manhattan—complete with lush florals, fresh vegetables, carbs galore, and so, so many bottles of wine.

The designer and I are wildly alike in our love of food. If you’re a loyal Wu fan, then you’re likely aware of his Instagram page titled MrWuEats, which he launched right at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak in January 2020. There, he documents his culinary creations, which range from pepperoni pizza to seafood paella. Wu’s fall 2021 fashion show is a fusion of his passions: food and
