Berluti’s Fall/Winter 2018 Pre-Collection by Haider Ackermann is an exercise in quietness and sartorial serenity: devoid of all distraction and visible ornament, clothes have a way of unveiling their artisanal know-how, clean architecture, hidden details and rich natural textures.
The Brioni Fall/Winter 2018 wardrobe explores sartorial archetypes for the discerning man of the 21st century.

Closer inspection will reveal the guiding principle: to rethink everyday icons in the interest of the uttermost quality and luxurious comfort.

Lady Gaga has defended her decision to wear fur.
The singer has stepped out in two animal style ensembles recently while carrying a dog but refuses to get into details about why she feels it's OK to don an animal's exterior for fashion.
She explained: "I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, 'kermit' and not to mention meat, that I have already worn."
