Louis Vuitton FW24 Is a Testament to Timeless Grace

Givenchy FW24 Leans Into Past Successes

Lately, Givenchy has been a house in flux. In the past 10 years, the brand has moved between three creative directors seeing Riccardo Tisci, Clare Waight Keller and Matthew M Williams. Tisci had a solid run from 2005 to 2017, but the two that followed him only lasted out the house for about three years each. That’s not enough time to impart a succinct and long-lasting vision at a luxury house, but in today’s climate leaders are expected to do the impossible instantly. Alongside that, one of the

Courrèges FW24 Touts Calm Sensuality

Sensuality is a given for Di Felice. He knows ho

But after last night, Lopez might’ve just won this year due to a special front-row appearance by Beyoncé.

Quite honestly the event was a Knowles family affair with Tina and Solange Kn
