4 Fashion Collaborations For Fall 2016

Fashion collaborations seem to excite everyone and this season we are in for a treat with four notable team ups. The collaborations are set to attract customers, thanks not only to the major labels involved but also thanks to the familiar names involved.

Tommy Hilfiger X Gigi Hadidgigi-hadid-tommy-hilfiger

This collaboration has been in the works for a year, and now boasts a ready-to-wear-line. For her latest venture with the label called “Tommy X Gigi”, the model presents a ready-to-wear line with a sailor-chic theme. The collection is made up of cable-knit sweaters, maxi dresses, high-waist pants with button fronts, long coats, ankle boots and a wide range of accessories. The collection is now available online but will be rolled out to Tommy Hilfiger stores on September 10.

Aubade X Christian LacroixAubade-X-Christian-Lacroix

The lingerie brand Aubade and Christian Lacroix announced the capsule collection back in December 2015 and shared a small snippet of it just a few weeks ago. Bringing back the bold and sophisticated re-workings of Aubade’s iconic lines “Idylle Parisienne” this collaboration will be made available in two color options. For summer, the brand will launch “Princess Impériale” while “Gardénia” will be rolled out in October. The collection features several styles of bras and briefs, as well as a waist-cincher and a nightdress.

This is not the first time that the Japanese brand has teamed up with the French model and fashion designer. The sixth such capsule collection is made up of 70 pieces we would love to have in our wardrobe for fall/winter 2016. Channeling the chic Parisian vibe that we have come to love from Ines de la Fressange, the collection focuses on three major themes. “La Femme Rive Droite,” inspired by the natural-born elegance of women in Paris’s right-bank neighborhoods, “La Femme Rive Gauche,” capturing the natural fuss-free chic of left-bank women, and “La Femme 70s,” channeling a free spirit.

H&M X Kenzokenzo-hnm-featured

This collection is one that we are anticipating with glee. Heading to stores on November 3, this capsule collection is H&M’s follow up to the highly successful Balmain collaboration. The collection will be made up of candy bright colors, prints and mix-and-match pieces that will be rolled out to 250 specially selected H&M stores worldwide.

This season, Inès de la Fressange, is renewing her collaboration with Japanese fast-fashion giant Uniqlo. She helped create a selection of ready-to-wear pieces which will be available September 3.

Her first collection for the brand was such a hit back in March 2014 that the former Chanel muse couldn’t turn down this opportunity to work on a Fall/Winter collaboration. For this new collection, Inès de la Fressange focused on sophisticated femininity with a vintage touch.

Nature and French lifestyle

The themes of nature and winter are at the core of every piece of this collection, which also draws on the “French lifestyle” associated with the former model.

The Parisienne chose shades linked to a wintry atmosphere in a remote alpine ski resort, with nuances of green (forests of fir trees) and warm red (mulled wine) and immaculate white. However, the designer couldn’t avoid including her signature color: indigo blue.

Wintry pieces and accessories with a vintage twist

This collection is also reminiscent of vintage ski looks from the 1950s and 1960s, with a line of wool sweaters, twisted knits with Nordic and fawn motifs.

This new collaboration also comprises a set of skirts hitting above the knee, blazers, coats, hoodies, dresses and shirts.

Uniqlo and Inès de la Fressange also came up with a unique line of accessories, from gloves to scarves and beanies, as well as berets and a wide selection of belts.

This new collection will launch on September 3 with prices ranging from $19.90 to $169.90.

High fashion is in the air at the Café de la Paix in Paris. Since 2006, the famous restaurant of the InterContinental Le Grand hotel has honored Paris Fashion Week with a high-end, €18 sweet.

This year, the cafe is offering a coconut and raspberry sweet created by the pastry chef Dominique Costa and designed by former model Inès de la Fressange.

The pastry chef’s inspiration was a pencil drawing made by Inès de la Fressange. The former model sketched a heart of raspberries surrounded by a creamy mousse. The resulting dessert will be available from September and through the rest of this year.

Ines de la Fressange: L’Oréal’s New Spokeswoman

Former Chanel model and Parisienne par excellence Inès de la Fressange is putting the Paris back in L’Oréal with a new partnership announced March 30.

Paradoxically for a youth-obsessed industry, 53-year-old Fressange has rejuvenated fashion brands such as Roger Vivier, but L’Oréal hopes for the La Parisienne author to exude “timeless French chic” as ambassadress for the brand.

Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2009 Couture Collection

While the Chanel couture collection was inspired by paper, it was calligraphy that inspired the new Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2009 Haute Couture collection.

Set to a huge screen with calligraphy images in motion, Gaultier introduced his dreamy couture creations that featured see-through fabrics, fishnets, embroideries, and high-waisted skirts and pants that illustrated the mastery of his craftsmanship.

Lace and embroidery were just some of the exclusive, meticulous details which came in black and white, like ink on paper.

Trousers turned into corsets, and silhouettes took on an 80s look with dresses, some of which were inspired by swimsuits.
