Cars & Fashion LAFW Runway Event feat. Escada and Porsche Design

The glitterati of California’s City of Angels recently appeared in droves to witness the intersection of high-fashion and high-octane automobiles at Los Angeles Fashion Week’s Cars & Fashion runway event on Aug. 3: a prelude to the highly-anticipated, five-day LAFW 2019 event this coming fall.

Appropriately hosted at the Petersen Automotive Museum, Cars & Fashion featured presentations from two of the world’s most iconic luxury brands, Escada and Porche Design.

German-bred powerhouses Escada and Porche Designs audaciously emerged in the 1970s as innovators in apparel and industrial design. Escada’s 1978 debut collection, Escada & Sporty Elegance, helped to define the glamorous-yet-bold and wholly feminine aesthetic of the Escada woman through four decades. Just six years prior in 1972, Ferdinand Alexander Porche founded his namesake brand with an ethos that emphasized an uncompromised commitment to sleek, high-quality luxury goods with little regard to costs of production, and shifted Porche design focus beyond automobiles.

FAULT Magazine was on location at Cars & Fashion for a sneak peak of what sartorial devotees of both fashion houses can expect at LAFW SS19 this October: an event that will showcase the latest frocks by designers and brands from around the world.

ALESSANDRO TRINCONE | MFW SS19 | HIGHLIGHTS

A modern day set whimsical romance orchestrated for pleasures play. Menswear reimagined for a possible futuristic walking strut of design, fantasy and exploration. A carefree confidence floating on air with ruffles, waves, tiers of tulle and femme delights. With imagination and disco discovery we’re presented with stapled stamped pieces of a light plush blush palette and marshmallow. Recollections of Viktor & Rolf echoed with ease; alas a fearless collection with no boundaries or limits. Ingenious strolling works of art and visionary obsessions. Tinsel streams of silver, metallics, glitters, gloves and knee highs, leaving mouths ajar for the elements of surprise. Alessandro Trincone has us kept in an excess of life’s secret garden.
