French designer Olivier Rousteing is 30 years old and has been the Creative Director of Balmain since 2011. In just four short years Olivier has brought a much-needed fresh take to the Balmain aesthetic and fueled an explosive growth in the brand’s sales and popularity thanks in part to social media. Balmain now has over 2.6 million Instagram followers and Olivier Rousteing has over 1 million followers on his Instagram, the first French designer to do so. His social media presence and clout goes even further thanks to his circle of celebrity friends like Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Rihanna. The global launch of his Balmain collection for H&M has been Olivier’s personal dream in the making.

“I want to talk to my generation, this is my main aim as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain, get a piece of the dream and create a global #HMBalmaination: a movement of togetherness, fueled on a hashtag” 

Olivier has brought the couture feeling that Balmain is known for to his H&M capsule collection – “it’s really a celebration of my couture pieces for Balmain, obviously I changed the techniques, I changed the beading to make it more affordable but I tried to keep the couture feeling“.

Olivier said he wanted to launch the collection in New York City because “America is all about mix and diversity and this collection is all about mixité also – that’s why I think America is going to love it…we’re all about diversity and America is one of the most beautiful countries that is diverse – I’m really proud this collection is launched here in New York“.  The Balmain x H&M collection by Olivier Rousteing will be available in H&M US stores and worldwide, as well as online, starting on November 5, 2015.

Chanel Spring 2013 by Karl Lagerfeld was the hot ticket of Paris fashion week. The show was staged at the magnificent Grand Palais des Champs-Elysées, one of the most historic sites in France.  From giant icebergs to the apocalypse, the themes of the sets are always extraordinary.  At Chanel you can expect to see an unforgettable fashion show and a look that pushes fashion forward.

For Chanel Spring 2013 Karl Lagerfeld brought a whole new energy and vibe  – installing 12 giant wind turbines with a solar panel runway to make his point that it’s time for a new mood of ease.  With models wearing almost 100 different looks, there was an atmosphere of serenity and tranquility on the enormous runway.  The Chanel Spring 2013 collection was fresh, airy, light and modern.

As Karl explained after the show he wanted a Chanel collection that “you could identify in a second”, but there were no braids, bows, no chains and no logos in sight.  The show was incredibly optimistic and the set underscored Karl’s vision of the future.  “It’s all about energy”.   Find out why fashion editor Godfrey Deeny,  Laetitia Casta and Leigh Lazark all agree Chanel is the greatest fashion show on earth. Watch our Chanel Spring 2013 fashion video here now.

Milan Fashion Week:  Gucci Designer Frida Giannini knows how to deliver clothes that are ready to wear.   Her menswear collection for Spring 2012 strength is it’s just so desirable.

I was thinking about Michael Caine of the ’60s,’’ Frida Giannini, the Gucci designer, said backstage to Guy Trebay of the New York Times before her spring 2012 show. “The unconventional, relaxed Michael Caine of “Alfie,the way he wore his suits with an open shirt.’’

The collection felt like it was made for young, fashionable guys like stylist and Bravo TV reality star Brad Goreski, who has made the bow-tie his signature look.  Goreski is currently in Milan reporting for Details Magazine and in the fall you will be able to see him on his new reality show on Bravo called It’s a Brad Brad World.

Milan Fashion Week: You can always count on designer Miuccia Prada to stir things up and set a new direction for fashion. The whole vibe at Prada’s Spring 2012 Menswear collection was quirky, eccentric and over the top. From the blue cube seats to the cartoon like, golf themed shirts and pants, Miuccia is once again encouraging men to be more daring, to wear color and experiment with fashion. Backstage before the show Muiccia told WWD that she wanted to deliver a carefree, happy and youthful collection.

The Prada man for Spring 2012 is an arty golfer who loves his kooky flower power print shirts and pants, golf caps and colorful golf shoes. We love the originality of this collection – watch the full runway show here now.

Milan Fashion Week: Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 Menswear Collection is built around one idea ‘The Net.’ The perforated net-like fabric was used either in transparent or lined in washed cotton poplin for jackets, trousers, Bermuda shorts, T-shirts, bomber jackets, tracksuits and sweaters. It was the most directional look of the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 collection – inspired in part from the fishermen in their native Southern Italy.

According to the designers, the idea was to update their sartorial roots, and involve the present generation in their fashion story. “We’re in the mood to experiment, to rework tailoring, making it modern and innovative,” Domenico Dolce said at a breakfast get-together with reporters before the show.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana know how to make men look sexy, but this season they kept it classic with crisp white shirts and tailored suits. There were plenty of new proportions – the pants were slighty shorter, the lapels on the jackets were gone and the whole look was fresh and strong.
