Infinity & Beyond at Christian Dior

The #mirrored set at Christian Dior had to be the most talked about phenomenon of the day. Extending upwards, the oversized mirror looked as though to reflect the entire cityscape. As a replacement has yet to be named since Raf Simons’ departure, the Dior studio team put forth an on-brand 55 piece collection...

They Are Wearing: Art Basel, Hong Kong Edition

The art crowd has descended on Hong Kong this week for the latest installment of Art Basel and a host of satellite events around the city. WWD shot stylish attendees at a few key festivities so far, including Monday night’s opening of the “Structures of Recollection” exhibition at Pearl Lam Galleries and Tuesday night’s Net-a-porter and Mr Porter party hosted at The Pawn.

Guest at both events — as well as those wandering the main exhibition at the city’s trade center — sported a host of styles. Many opted for all-black or black-and-white combos, but a few flashed some traditional Chinese red (or hot pink). Funky, colorful sneakers, especially in orange, as well as chunky statement necklaces were out in full force...

Atelier Versace Spring 2016 Couture

Versace has solidified its place in history for praising and exalting the female form: its every arch, curvation, and bend. Donatella Versace has been at the helm of the brand for almost two decades now and has definitely made the iconic Italian fashion house synonymous with power, sensuality, and strength: yes, the kinds of pieces you would wear for a night out but for the love of your own body and not that of the male gaze. D-ring accented straps, bomber jackets, functional knits, and contrast stripes kicked off the sporty chic vibe that pervaded over its latest Couture assortment.
