Mythic Pro­por­tions

Chanel’s La Moder­nité de l’An­tiq­uité col­lec­tion puts a mod­ern spin on an­cient Gre­cian style, with a bust of Venus sit­ting atop a man­tle in Coco Chanel’s Rue Cam­bon apart­ment serv­ing as Karl Lager­feld’s muse. Uni­fy­ing the looks are col­umn-heeled gla­di­a­tor sandals in bright teal and or­ange.

Pre­his­toric Chic

Util­ity jack­ets and chunky knits were seen at Dior’s Re­sort show in Cal­abasas, Cal­i­for­nia, with artis­tic di­rec­tor Maria Grazia Chi­uri in­spired by the cave paint­ings in the Las­caux cave as well as by mon­sieur Chris­tian Dior’s 1951 Ovale col­lec­tion. Chi­uri’s por­trayal of the cave paint­ings were blown up and printed on silk dresses, dyed in rust and tan and fea­tur­ing square neck­lines and corseted bodices.

Sporty Spice

Mi­uc­cia Prada’s goal for the la­bel’s lat­est col­lec­tion was to take a mod­ernist ap­proach. Black ny­lon, usu­ally seen on back­packs and purses, was used to make sports­wear while the more del­i­cate pas­tel-hued tops, pants, and dresses were printed with James Jean’s il­lus­tra­tions of rab­bits and lilies.

Eastern Di­rec­tion

Ni­co­las Gh­esquière took in­spi­ra­tion from Ja­panese cul­ture for Louis Vuit­ton’s lat­est cruise col­lec­tion, part­ner­ing with Ja­panese de­signer Kan­sai Ya­mamoto. The mod­els, sport­ing Kabuki makeup, walked down the run­way in lay­ered gar­ments of var­i­ous prints and tex­tures, though the true stand­outs of the col­lec­tion were the se­quined dresses with il­lus­tra­tions of samu­rais.
