The new fashion season: 3 to watch

Posted on

The model – Kendall Jenner 

One of the younger members of the extended Kardashian clan, the 18-year-old model had a breakthrough year in 2014. Signed with Elite in Paris and The Society in New York, she has already walked in shows for Givenchy, Chanel and Marc Jacobs. Expect to see plenty more of the star on the runway this fall. 

The designer – Rodolfo Paglialunga

Taking the reins at Jil Sander after last season’s efforts by the internal design team, the Italian is stepping up to the plate for his debut collection, after the eponymous German designer left her namesake label for the third time last fall. Formerly in charge of womenswear at Prada (under Miuccia, naturalmente) he also worked as creative director of Vionnet between 2009 and 2011. Expect Paglialunga to provide his own twist to Sander’s classic minimalism. 

The fashionista – Caroline Issa 

Always a fixture at the shows, the Fashion Director at Tank Magazine is branching out this season. After dipping her toe in the design world (excuse the pun) with a collection of colorful footwear for L.K. Bennett, Issa has now moved on to ready-to-wear. The multitalented businesswoman, publisher and style editor has worked with Nordstrom on a 25-piece-strong capsule collection due out in the new year. Expect sneak peeks of her work over the coming months, as well as some typically flawless street-style outfits outside the shows.
