Luxury online shopping company LUISAVIAROMA featured this season’s hottest trends in a dark way. The editorial entitled ‘After Dark’ highlights signature menswear labels such as Ann Demeulemeester and Balmain as well as emerging designers Kai Aakmann and Gareth Pugh. Designers are staying clear from bright colors this season and focusing their attention on Fall’s [...]
In yet another swift window dressing move, Lanvin presents its new Splash installation, shockingly showcasing its Fall 2012 collection .
