Her buzziness, Rihanna, is likewise back on the New York schedule, although not with her ready-to-wear line, Fenty x Puma, but with Savage x Fenty, her inclusive lingerie line. Speaking of which, the runways are becoming significantly more diverse, both in terms of race and size. Hopefully it will continue.
And more and more labels are combining men’s and women’s wear, which makes sense, given the weirdly antiquated nature of gender separation as a concept. Joining the ranks this season will be Prabal Gurung, who is introducing men’s wear at his New York women’s show, and the Row, which will unveil its men’s and women’s looks in a presentation.
And some departures
Gucci is taking a one-time-only sabbatical from Milan to show in Paris as the last leg of the designer Alessandro Michele’s ode to France, which began with the prefall ad campaign and continued through the resort show in Arles. The finale will be held at Le Palace, a theater that was once the famous nightclub of the late 1970s and early ’80s, which is having something of a fashion moment.
