Fashion month may be over but that doesn’t mean we’re through with the great moments it brought us.
The effect of the spring/summer 2020 shows will be felt via social media, on headlines, and in our closets. Don’t believe me? How about taking a look at the top moments these SS2020 presentations which we will be referencing in days to come.
Best hair – Kaia Gerber
Which show didn’t Kaia Gerber walk for? She was at Chanel, Sacai, Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Valentino, and Saint Laurent to name a few. What I love is the fresh short bob she had which proved to be versatile. It looked edgy brushed back at Celine while dainty and romantic at Chanel.
Best collab – Dries van Noten and Christian Lacroix
This was so good. It’s true showmanship of knowledge in craft, trend, and tradition. I fell in love from the first look and all the colorful ensembles that came after all the way to the final look.
Best walk – Gigi Hadid
At the Chanel show, a protestor managed to infiltrate the catwalk. Quick-witted Gigi Hadid spotted her and casually escorted her off the runway without fuss. To the untrained eye, it even looked like a moment staged for the Chanel presentation.
Best finale – Jennifer Lopez
Twenty years ago, Jennifer made fashion history with “The Dress.” Twenty years later, she proved how she’s still got it by closing the Versace show, featuring a collection inspired by “The Dress”, in the only way she knows how.
Favorite of the season – Bottega Venetta
I love Daniel Lee’s know-how in clothes and the fresh look he brought to Bottega Venetta. Vogue said of his SS20/20 collection, “Daniel Lee’s Bottega Veneta pouch clutch and distinctive square-toe shoes have become It items almost overnight.” And I most definitely agree.
Best runway tactic – Issey Miyake
I wish every morning when I need to get dressed, a frock would just fall from the ceiling, perfect for my way. This is how the models Issey Miyake got into their colorful dresses which proved to be why the show was a hit.
Best hats – Erdem
These hats make me want to be transported by a European countryside so I can have a picnic. Erdem always makes a great story with every collection. It’s not about the details of the clothes but also the lifestyle they exude and the personalities they emulate.
Best in styling – Giambattista Valli
I’m a Valli fan season after season. For the SS2020 collection, I was impressed with how the clothes are matched up. There’s a mood that was consistent all throughout the show which was effortless and fun with a great eye for the little things.
Best coats – Agnona
These coats mean business with pants and a shirt. But I can also see them worn on top of flirty dresses. The folded arms and the way they sloped over the shoulders suggests modernity and ease fit for this season. That’s the perfect summer coat.
Best in crochet- Missoni
Crochet can be tricky. But Missioni manages to give us exactly what we need. Colorful patterns from the collection are ready to be worn with some denim or to just use for a print-on-print look.
Best fusion of music and fashion – Sacai
Chitose Abe incorporated George Clinton’s album cover for “One Nation Under a Groove” for this collection that’s funk plus fashion. It’s fun and fearless and delivers Abe’s signature when it comes to Sacai as an influencer favorite.
