It was J.W. Anderson’s first womenswear showing at the helm of Loewe, and Ford’s Lexi, Charlotte and Yulia were a part of it. Walking in crisp linens and leather, the girls were the physical embodiment of Anderson’s reimagining of the Spanish brand. These 3 were a stellar addition to an already promising debut.
Isabel Marant is still the queen of cool nonchalance, as exhibited by Ford Image’s Lexi on the S/S 2015 runway. Walking in 2 separate black looks, the model resembled a younger Marant herself. This girl knew how to make a statement without trying too hard.
A very stylized, graphic floral motif made an appearance on Roland Mouret’s S/S 2015 runway, featuring Ford New York’s Yulia M. Walking in 2 looks, the model epitomized spring in crisp whites and pops of color. It was almost as if the girl herself was in bloom.
Lanvin celebrated 125 years today, so Alber Elbaz pulled all the stops for the S/S 2015 show. Ford Image’s Lexi was joined by iconic faces like Amber Valletta and Audrey Hepburn (by way of her granddaughter Emma Ferrer). Here was the latest legendary face to be added to the brand’s rich history.
Anne Demeulemeester’s runway shows are consistently punk, and that’s exactly what Ford Image’s Yulia was for S/S 2015. With some heavy eyeliner and mohawk-inspired hair, this model wasn’t afraid to shake things up.
Since taking over the creative direction of Balmain at the age of 25, Olivier Rousteing has been building an army, and Ford Image’s Kayla is the newest recruit. On the S/S 2015 runway, the model oozed a kind of retro decadence that has become a signature of the label. From the F/W 2014 campaign to now, this is a soldier we can get behind.
Nina Ricci will never not be the epitome of class. Ford Image’s Charlotte walked the designer’s S/S 2015 runway with an effortless updo in oversized floral prints. This girl was ready for high society.
It’s not every day we get to see a Ford guy and girl on the runway together, so Yang Li’s S/S 2015 runway was a particular delight. Ford Men’s Ethan walked alongside Ford Image’s Zoe in the fourth showing from the Raf Simons protégé. Here was the perfect duo for this burgeoning brand.
Balenciaga’s S/S 2015 runway with Ford Image’s Lexi featured a soundtrack full of bumping bass and rap. The urban references were less pronounced elsewhere, with Lexi walking bare-faced in a white sheath dress. This was a girl who you would spot on the rues of Les Marais or on Saint Honoré, not just any old street.
Dries Van Noten’s show this season, featuring Ford Image’s Charlotte and Fay, was a mashup of stylized bohemia. Walking on a runway mimicking patchy moss, the girl’s perfectly paired with the eclectic earthiness of the collection. These were some haute hippies.
