Versace Girls: Versace Fall/Winter 2015
The Look:"Digital"/Web Style; Lots of Instagram/@/emoji's references...in Swarovski crystals no less! Donatella & Co. realize that almost every single look might be Instagrammed or social media'ed so why not "Brand" it. The iconic Versace Greek key is now #[Greek], naturally.
Trends: Side pleated jackets,dresses, skirts; Label Divas; bell bottoms; big sunglasses;
Colors: Lipstick red, navy blue; pinstripe; highlighter yellow, neon green
Tribal Girls: DSquared2 Fall 2015
The Look: "A suitcase of clothes and jewels from Old Europe had fallen out of a plane over the icy tundra and been taken up by an Inuit tribe, who had incorporated the finery into their own tribal duds." Dean Caten told Style.com. They also said that the collection was inspired by "Canadian Indian Tribes". They (or their PR Dept.) wanted to start a #dsquaw hashtag but have since removed it and thought better. Lisa Charleyboy, owner of Urban Native Girl magazine, calls it: "The glamorization of colonization." Needless to say, this collection and it's "theme" has been controversial.
Trends: Tribal; Lots of fur; fur hoodies; Native-style "inspiration";
Colors: Black, white, khaki, tribal prints, teal blue, denim blue, canary yellow
Collection Highlights (or low-lights, depending on how you look at it):

Haute Vintage: Gucci Fall/Winter 2015
New Man at Gucci: Creative Director Alessandro Michele taking his bow at Gucci Fall/Winter 2015
The Look: Alessandro Michele's first Womenswear Collection for Gucci after the whole Gucci "shake-up" and former Gucci Creative Director's Frida Giannini's unceremonious departure. This collection is moving Gucci into a new direction: Michele's Gucci girl is not Tom Ford-sexy or Giannini Euro Chic Trust-funder...she's more ingenue Boho...think "Luxe Hipster" who suddenly finds a trunk filled with old Haute fashions from her grandma's (or "kooky aunt's" closet).
