The Best of 2015 Through the eyes of

2015 is about to come to an end and during this year has tried to give you daily the best news coming from the world of fashion, art, culture and sport, along with a careful look to the latest tendencies in terms of street style captured around the world.

Over the months many events have occurred: from the big goodbyes of the fashion system – read: Alexander Wang at Balenciaga, Raf Simons at Dior and Alber Elbaz at Lanvin – to the triumphal entrance of Alessandro Michele at Gucci, from the debut of Lily-Rose Depp to the more recent one of Iris Law, from the new men’s beauty standards to the social battles with the hashtag #freethenipple. As every end of the year, it’s time for evaluations.

Which have been, then, the moments that left their mark during the 365 days which are about to end?

Here’s our top ten:


#1 Welcome, Caitlyn Jenner! The father of Kendall and Kylie Jenner has become a beautiful woman, who helped the world understand the status of trans among the people. Last June Caitlyn debuted posing on the cover of Vanity Fair USA, which became an historic number.


#2 Alessandro Michele revolutionizes Gucci. Few designers have been able to turn the identity of a brand upside down as much as Michele at Gucci. The Italian designer – elected Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards – has given new life to the brand founded by Guccio Gucci in 1921, creating a strong imagery made of vintage recalls, cinematic references, precious embroideries and original prints. An artistic and commercial success with no equals in 2015.


#3 Balmain x H&M. The latest collaboration of the Swedish fast fashion giant has had as protagonist French house Balmain, under the creative direction of Olivier Rousteing. The capsule collection, launched on November 5, has been an incredible success: endless lines and rushed shops, also online.


#4 Supreme x Jordan. After long waits and rumours, Supreme has finally announced and then released its first collaboration with Jordan Brand. The fans of the brand(s) have literally loved it and used the social networks to express their enthusiasm. The collection was sold out in a few minutes.


#5 Lily-Rose Depp conquers everything (and everyone). After the first public appearance during the Chanel Paris-Salzburg show last April, the first born of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis has become a star. New muse of Karl Lagerfeld – who chose her to face the Pearl Eyewear campaign of the brand – she seems willing to follow her father’s footsteps: four movies coming out for her in 2016.


#6 Rihanna is the first black testimonial of Dior. In May this year the popstar posed in front of Steven Klein’s lens for Dior Secret Garden campaign, shot in the bucolic frame of the Versailles gardens. A campaign which will be remembered (also) for its social value.


#7 Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson burst into Valentino’s runway in Paris. Last March the two actors have caused an uproar showing up by surprise during the brand’s AW16 show, in Valentino’s total look. It was nothing but an expedient to promote the release of Zoolander II, out on February 2016.


#8 Vetements is the brand of the new generation. Demna Gvasalia’s brand has obtained an incredible success. It currently shows along with the most historic fashion houses during Paris fashion week and became a reference for the European underground culture and the international street style scene.


#9 The comeback of Agyness Deyn. After four years of abstinence from the international runways, the British model appears during Saint Laurent SS16 show in Paris with a brand new look: goodbye to her androgynous platinum blond haircut. Agyness boasts now a long honey coloured mane.


#10 Goodbye, Elio Fiorucci! The enfant terrible of the fashion Made in Italy left us last July, at 80. Italy (and the whole world) remember him for his important contribution to the industry: from the invention of the stretch jeans to his Victorian angels reinterpreted in a pop way, the designer has become a myth to which the Triennale Museum in Milan will dedicate an exhibition.
