And 'WWD' might go weekly.
Milano always brings the sexy. But this season, Fashion Month's third stop also brought forays into Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy-worthy quiet reserve and gallery-caliber, fine-art motifs. Click through to check out the top 10 trends spotted at the Milan spring 2014 collections.
It was a pretty exciting season to be at Milan Fashion Week, what with new designers coming to the forefront, old designers trying new things, Anna Wintour making the rounds, and that Prada collection. There was a lot to see, so here's what it looked like from my iPhone's point of view.
Yesterday afternoon, we finally made our way to Agnona's pop-up--and soon to be permanent home--on Milan's chic Via Sant'Andrea (next door to Prada) to see Stefano Pilati's eagerly-anticipated, already for sale, womenswear debut for Agnona. As reported, the collection, titled Collection 0, became available to purchase in Milan on Wednesday, the same day it was first unveiled to press. And overall, Pilati's vision for the brand is a strong statement against the fashion cycle, and the fact that, for the past three weeks, we've been looking at clothes that won't hit stores for another six months.
Anticipation is high for Stefano Pilati's womenswear debut for Agnona, and the designer plans to unveil it in a pretty unconventional way.
Back in September, we reported that Stefano Pilati would be joining Ermenegildo Zegna in two capacities: As head of design of its menswear line and as creative director of the brand's women's line, Agnona, which is in dire need of a revival. As creative director of Agnona, Pilati certainly has his work cut out for him. The women's line has fallen pretty far off the fashion industry's radar. So how exactly will the ex-YSL designer, who started at the Italian house January 1, bring Agnona back to life?
In 2012, the fashion universe sort of reset itself. Raf Simons got what he deserved—Dior—while Alexander Wang got what very few could have predicted: Balenciaga. Now, the question is: What sort of seismic shifts will happen in 2013? From brand expansion, to designer debuts, here are the 10 labels you'll want to keep an eye on this year. Click through to see which brands we think will make a splash in 2013 and why.
In September, it was announced that, following his departure from YSL, Stefano Pilati would join Ermenegildo Zegna as head of design and as creative director of Zegna’s womenswear counterpart, Agnona. We haven't seen or heard anything since, until now. Agnona feted the opening of a new store in Miami yesterday and while we're pretty sure Pilati wasn't there, one of his designs apparently was.
Stefano Pilati, who presented his final collection as the creative director of YSL last March (he's since been succeeded by Hedi Slimane), has a new
