Oscar de la Renta

For their summer collections, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia have a habit of taking inspiration from the flamboyancy and fun of travel, with specific locations in mind. This time around, it was the Dominican Republic that became the landscape for the SS20 showcase, a place close to the brand’s heart. Think the solar colour palettes reminiscent of Caribbean sunsets, floral hues and natural fabrics such as hand-loomed linen, raffia and raw silk.

 

Tom Ford

Glamour takes a grunge edge during Tom Ford’s summer showcase, as punk-rock hair is paired with lavender satin blazers and turquoise jumpsuits teamed with a baseball cap. And where did the Creative Director take inspiration? The New York subways, of course, where people from all walks of life collide – using the iconic picture of Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick scuttling from a manhole as a key image to inspire the spring collection.

 

Carolina Herrera

As Creative Director for the American label, Wes Gordon has remained faithful to the legacy of the near-40-year-old brand by uniting two of its most famous features; vivacious fun and conventional sophistication (that’s why happens when you specialise in dressing First Ladies of the United States). Think boxy white shirts tucked into flowing floral skirts and contrasting tartan hues.
