To kick off our first annual “Next” issue, we wanted to explore the newest and boldest trends in fashion, design, and beyond. From box pleats to bold shoulders, architectural shapes and dramatic volume—designers like Tomas Maier at Bottega Veneta, Alexander Wang at Balenciaga, and Raf Simons at Dior are redefining how modern women dress.
On the streets and down the runways, these designs are challenging the concept of traditional femininity and beauty. Sexiness is taking a backseat to structure, and pretty has nothing on powerful.
On the red carpet, trend-setting stars like Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, and Marion Cotillard—even Kim Kardashian—are eschewing typical gowns for the innovative and interesting from the likes of Riccardo Tisci and Rodarte.
Clean, strong architectural lines provide the perfect backdrop for fall’s dramatic new shapes and colors. Bold designs and sharp looks are perfectly contrasted with pretty, undone hair and effortless makeup—fall’s best dresses, coats, and accessories make quite the statement on their own.
