Industry Ny | Release 11 | Ss24 Season

Jack McCollough + Lazaro Hernandez - Designer, Camilla Nickerson - Fashion Editor/Stylist, Guido Palau - Hair Stylist, Diane Kendal - Makeup Artist, Ashley Brokaw - Casting Director, Jin Soon Choi - Manicurist
Apropos of its location at Phillips auction house, where fine art becomes a capitalist asset, Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2024 collection managed to explore a soulful and airy sensitivity while playing directly to the sophisticated tastes of the wealthy women who wear it.
The Impression

Designer: Ralph Lauren, Hair Stylist: Guido Palau, Makeup Artist: Diane Kendal, Casting Director: Piergiorgio Del Moro
While like most of the iconic American designer’s runway shows during his current era, Ralph Lauren’s Spring 2024 made the consistently smart move of subtly remixing the brand’s time-honored classics, it also felt like a strong step closer to “luxury,” and formed a powerfully refocused statement of the Ralph Lauren woman. Indeed, unlike most of his runway shows, this was no co-ed affair: whether in nods to the RRL era of westernwear and southwest flair or boho-glitzy evening gowns, that refined feminine force dominated the runway.
The Impression

Designer: Catherine Holstein, Fashion Editor/Stylist: Vanessa Traina, Hair Stylist: Guido Palau, Makeup Artist: Diane Kendal, Casting Directors: Helena Balladino, Piergiorgio Del Moro
In keeping with her distinctive style, Catherine Holstein unveiled a collection firmly rooted in the realm of cool, modern femininity. There were no radical departures from her well-established design sensibilities. Instead, she chose to embrace her clientele, leading them on a journey that felt simultaneously familiar and profoundly evocative.
The Impression

Designer: Joseph Altuzarra, Fashion Editor/Stylist: Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, Hair Stylist: Jawara, Makeup Artist: Diane Kendal, Casting Director: Michelle Lee
The previous few seasons from Altuzarra have seen the eponymous designer seek to balance out the covetable, haute-boho statement dresses for which he is best known with layerable pieces that have more everyday wear in mind – and Spring 2024 was the most convincing synthesis of these two sensibilities yet. Drawing inspiration from French New Wave film and its aesthetic themes wherein aloof bourgeois sophistication vies with dark subconscious desires, Altuzarra creates a deep sense of mood that balances cinematic drama with real-life sophistication.
The Impression

Designer: Gabriela Hearst, Fashion Editor/Stylist: Camilla Nickerson, Hair Stylist: Holli Smith, Makeup Artist: Fara Homidi, Casting Director: Jess Hallett, Producer: Alexandre de Betak
A crisply tailored suit or a minimalist formal dress might at first blush feel quite opposite to words like “organic,” “earthy,” and “spiritual” – words that we lovingly associate with the work of Gabriela Hearst – but her latest collection has made a convincing argument that these two sides can indeed coexist, and do so beautifully. Subtly drawing inspiration from the archetypal forms of the natural world and the hidden geometries that underlie them, Hearst infused this natural beauty into a collection of pristine tailoring and soulful elegance.

The Impression


Designer: Dion Lee, Fashion Editor/Stylist: Patti Wilson, Hair Stylist: Evanie Frausto, Makeup Artist: Marcelo Gutierrez, Casting Director: Bert Martirosyan, Manicurist: Sojin Oh
Spring 2024 saw Dion Lee successfully synthesize two distinct worlds of clothing design into his indulgently sexy clubwear aesthetic: the rigid codes of tailoring and corsetry and the utilitarian staples of toolshed and construction site. The result was a playful yet deadly and impressively constructed collection that pushed brand codes in strong new directions.
The Impression

Designer: Tory Burch, Fashion Editor/Stylist: Brian Molloy, Hair Stylist: Guido Palau, Makeup Artist: Diane Kendal, Casting Director: Ashley Brokaw
For Spring 2024, Tory Burch took her commitment to designing to serve the needs of sophisticated women in a few new directions, finding a stripped-back new focus on materiality and lightness that lend a subtly retro-futurist flavor to her contemporary take on classic American sportswear. Women’s garment construction techniques historically associated with restriction, like crinolines, boning, and hairnets, are instead put to work in serving the motions of the body, while innovative fabrics similarly opt for lightness and motion.
The Impression

Designer: Jason Wu, Fashion Editor/Stylist: Alex Harrington, Hair Stylist: Jimmy Paul, Makeup Artist: Diane Kendal, Casting Director: Rachel Chandler
Taking the opportunity of the spring season to explore how life and growth are part of the same natural cycle as death and decay, Jason Wu used distressed fabrics, exposed seams, and surface treatments like beaded embroidery and jacquard to create a richly patinated collection of organic elegance.
The Impression

Designer: Wes Gordon, Fashion Editor/Stylist: Marie Chaix, Makeup Artist: Lauren Parsons, , Casting Directors: Nico Mao, Rachel Chandler
While Carolina Herrera’s dresses are big and bold, the idea at the heart of a brand is a simple one: conveying joy through opulent fabrics in beautiful shapes. For Spring 2024, Wes Gordon stayed true as always to this core vision, while subtly updating it with a modern sense of flexibility by opting for a bit more layerability and separates.
The Impression

MILAN SS24FENDI Designer: Kim Jones, Fashion Editor/Stylists: Ellie Grace Cumming, Melanie Ward, Hair Stylist: Guido Palau, Makeup Artist: Peter Philips, Casting Director: Shelley DurkanHEJIA LI, ANGELINA KENDALL, VICTORIA FAWOLE, QIANXIA HFendi is a brand that continues to brim with anticipation. As a new collection unfurls each season, there is a hushed expectancy surrounding the narrative Kim Jones will weave. For this particular season, Jones took inspiration from the timeless avenues of Rome, where an understated elegance exists—a celebration of personal freedom and self-expression. This emotive yet thoughtful avenue of inspiration took Jones through the conduits of the Roman essence. With an intuitive eye, he crafted this narrative for women who dress for themselves, channeling the essence he sees in Silvia and Delfna daily. In the collection, the ordinary is transformed, histories intertwine, and a distinctly Roman insouciance is evoked, setting Jones on a sartorial expedition that blurs the lines between everyday wear and the pinnacle of luxury – a true embodiment of the art of effortless dressing while also embracing imperfections as a reflection of human authenticity and the quiet confidence that comes from authentic self-expression. The Impression
ETRO  Designer: Marco de Vincenzo, Fashion Editor: Gabriela Karefa-Johnson, Casting Director: Piotr ChamierHEJIA LI, AJOK DAING, VICTORIA FAWOLE A passionate soul who likes to search and be carried away by chance. Much of this collection from De Vincenzo is embodied through his love of music, setting the scene for an evocative collection. (some pieces would have sat well in Talitha Getty’s wardrobe). Here, the creative director embarks on a transformative journey to captivate a fresh audience while paying homage to Etro’s rich heritage. As he delves deep into the brand’s intricate ethos, he is inspired by the allure of imagined landscapes—a place that doesn’t exist yet feels profoundly real. This “Nowhere,” a dreamlike realm where ancient temples rise amidst urban jungles, serves as a testament to the limitless possibilities of fashion. It’s a symbolic space where rules are upended, rational thought dissolves, and unexpected combinations come to life.The Impression
ALBERTA FERRETTI Alberta Ferretti - Designer, Poppy Kain - Fashion Editor/Stylist, Kanako Takase - Makeup Artist, Ben Grimes - Casting DirectorVICTORIA FAWOLE, MARINA MOIOLI, RAYNARA NEGRIN. Since before the pandemic, Ferretti has been focused on expanding her range, because women can’t live in chiffon alone. The lightness that’s a hallmark of her evening styles hasn’t always translated to her daywear, but the chemisier dress spilling off one shoulder that opened the show and the long white dresses with hand-tucked pleats that followed it had the ease of resort clothes. She kept the vibe going with striped cotton pajama separates and a shirtdress cut as generous as a caftan. You could see women wearing these pieces on
MAX MARA Ian Griffiths - Creative Director, Tonne Goodman - Fashion Editor/Stylist, Giulia Massullo - Casting Director, Piergiorgio Del Moro - Casting DirectorANGELINA KENDALL, VICTORIA FAWOLE, HEJIA LI The Women’s Land Army proved a fertile source of inspiration for Ian Griffiths at Max Mara. The collection that flourished from it was cultivated rather than rustic—more Phoebe Waller-Bridge channeling Monty Don shot by Sam Mendes at Sissinghurst and less tilling for beetroot—but it contained many authentically researched touches while also working wonderfully as a luxuriously utilitarian woman’s wardrobe for
TOM FORD Peter Hawkings - Creative Director, Marie Chaix - Fashion Editor/Stylist, Alejandra Perez - Casting Director, Giulia Massullo - Casting Director, Piergiorgio Del Moro - Casting DirectorANGELINA KENDALL, NYADUOLA GABRIEL, VICTORIA FAWOLE, HEJIA LIA voice from the past echoed across the runway. Hawkings, whose journey with Tom Ford extends back to their collaborative days at Gucci, presented a collection that felt like a tribute—a love letter—to those shared iconic moments. In one perspective, it was like watching Tom Ford 2.0; fast, sexy, tailored, every garment exuding that intoxicating confidence that has long defined the brand. Yet, this is where the introspection arises: does this reclamation of classics border on the verge of glorifying an antiquated idea of femininity?Inspired by the poise and enigma of Donyale Luna—the ’70s first black supermodel—the collection oozed a feline, mysterious charm. Every piece felt supremely elegant and glamorous, much like Luna herself. Hawkings’ vision of a unified aesthetic between men’s and women’s collections shone brightly, a bold but welcome move in today’s fashion landscape.
PRADAMiuccia Prada - Designer Raf Simons - Designer Olivier Rizzo - Fashion Editor/Stylist Guido Palau - Hair Stylist Lynsey Alexander - Makeup Artist Ashley Brokaw - Casting DirectorQIN LEIDon’t let the slime, which dripped and slapped down the middle of the peachy-pink mesh steel runway at Prada today, fool you. It might make good quote-unquote content—it certainly did when it poured down at the men’s show in June—but this was a collection devoted to craft and technique. Surrounded by reporters backstage, Miuccia Prada said, “I got tired talking about ideas—let’s talk about clothes.”Aren’t all runway shows about clothes? Well, yes, but as Raf Simons went on to explain, “craft isn’t something that gets talked about a lot at Prada, at least not as much as at other houses. We wanted to show what we could do.” It wasn’t a matter of how many hours it took to embroider this and how many petites mains were involved in making that. “That’s irrelevant,” he said with a wave of his hand. “The figuring out if it can be done” was the part that got him and Prada going. Two techniques, in particular, got special mention from Simons. The first was the printed fringe they used on floral shirts that gave the individual blooms a shifting depth. And the second was the long skeins of metal fringe used for skirts “built like jewelry.” They’re conversation starters, for sure.
