Top 10 Shows of 2016

Fashion world is advancing largely now a days. The fashion trend is frequently changing in every moment. Fashion lovers are becoming crazy for the latest fashion trend. Here we are presenting top 10 shows of 2016

In a tour de force, Miuccia Prada offered her own vision of a polarised world: the powerful and the weak, the rich and the poor — reflecting the huge upheaval in the air in fashion, a mirror of the wider world. Prada’s women were wanderers, stateless, “vagabonds” she called them, roaming across different times and places, with their clothing functioning as a record of their journey.

The revelation of the Balenciaga presentation was Demna Gvasalia’s ability to translate the essence of couture into a ready-to-wear collection — without diminishing its purity or its emotional charge. It had the rightness of something we’ve been waiting to see forever. And it immediately cast a giant shadow over the entire season. Gvasalia’s fusion of past and present was so alchemical that the mutant street-wear which has been his calling card at Vetements was elevated, elegantly transmuted by the influence of classic couture.

Dries Van Noten– designed by Dries Van Noten, PFW

Dries Van Noten presented a masterclass in fashion narrative inspired by the early 20th century amour fou of the poet Gabriele D’Annunzio and the Marchesa Casati, an eccentric who was, at one point, reportedly the richest woman in Italy. First look: his tuxedo jacket, shirt, bullion badge and slicked-back hair, her cheetah-spot pants and panda eyes. Going on, the symbiosis was gloriously realized with his elongated coats lined with her (faux) cheetah, his club jackets swathed in her eccentric furs, his cabled cricket sweater over a net of her pearls. “Things have to stand out now,” Van Noten insisted.

 Loewe – designed by Jonathan Anderson, PFW

Elevating the banal is something that obsesses Anderson. One of his first looks today incorporated a skirt made from rubber bands. A dominant motif was the pendants of cat faces and masks. Maybe it’s because Loewe is Spanish company that we thought they might have been copies of Picasso ceramics. Loewe always represented an apogee of artisanship, but there was something old school, slightly ponderous about it. Anderson has lightened Loewe, roughened it, added sensuality, sunlight, movement and humor.

Hood by Air – designed by Shayne Oliver, NYFW

5. Hood By Air

Though Shayne Oliver’s new presentation for Hood by Air was actually his most disciplined to date — clothes wise at least — the song it sang was revolution, the French Revolution to be specific. There were big white poet shirts, outerwear sized like capes, torrents of pleats and latex ruffles that could be construed as contemporary takes on the garb that those aristos would have worn to the guillotine. Red saran wrap around the throat mimicked the gash left by the guillotine’s blade. If you accept that fashion mirrors wider concerns, then clearly a readjustment is on the way for everyone.

Saint Laurent – designed by Hedi Slimane, PFW

Made at the reinstated couture ateliers in Paris and Angers, the Saint Laurent show was a maximal exercise in minimal form. The sculpted swoop of classic couture shapes meshed with abbreviated dresses, the fabrics a parade of paveed shine and lurex glitter. Le Smoking Classique asserted itself in a cropped jacket over a black sequinned jumpsuit. Slimane reconstituted the fabulous fur chubbies of YSL legend.

Gucci – designed by Alessandro Michele, MFW

Vertigo, “the feeling of losing your sense of self that you get when you look at art or something beautiful,” as Michele put it. Case in point: Gucci’s Autumn/Winter 2016 collection. Michele’s subversion of “lady” dressing scaled new heights. Old Hollywood glamour collided with Gucci’s nu-glam in a manic mash-up of pattern and texture and extraordinary colours. All of that said, there was a surprising amount of clothing that will make Michele’s paymasters happy.

Marc Jacobs – designed by Marc Jacobs, NYFW

8. Marc Jacobs

The pleasurable sense of climax Marc Jacobs brought to the NYFW calendar was like our reward for the longer of the often-frigid week. His shows are ten-minute shots of purest sui generis spectacle. If Spring was Technicolor, Autumn/Winter was black & white. “We amped up the opulence,” Jacobs enthused. “Larger and larger. We’re doing a show! That’s what I love about fashion.” And each girl was a show unto herself, raised high on a pedestal of eight-inch platform shoes. The same exaggerated proportions carried over into what they were wearing.

 Marni – designed by Consuela Castiglioni, MFW

9. Marni

This season, Consuelo Castiglioni struck a convincing balance between the familiar (the historical, even) and the not so, like the jacket and coat in a classic Prince of Wales check, bugle-beaded in an Ikat pattern (the same pattern appeared a few outfits later in fabric form). The hybrid result was quintessential Marni: m-odd-ern. From the moment fresh new face Charlee stepped on to the catwalk, the show hit a winning streak. And it stayed there, through a procession of looks that Consuelo Castiglioni called “new romantic.”

Simone Rocha – designed by Simone Rocha, PFW

Recent first time mother Simone Rocha said she’d been in “a funny state of mind” for the past three months. So if she offered up plenty of the dark romance that is a Rocha specialty, she also added what she called a “surgical” element. We’ll take her word for that, but the minute she said it, a surreal hospital drama took shape: matrons in black double-breasted coat dresses; an expectant mother wrapped in a big pink hospital robe; models swaddled tightly, like newborns; bright red earrings, dribbles of blood. “Falling apart at the seams,” Rocha wrote in her show notes. But she did find respite with angelic dresses in sheer tulle, delicately embroidered. The same tulle was made into overdresses, the breasts highlighted — a little like primal fertility figures.
