"This is my vision of America now. Big. Vast. Diverse. I want to show the freedom of expression, strong point of view, and unique style of these Americans I love and respect." —Riccardo Tisci, on his cover shoot for Style.com/Print Read more ›
From Karl Lagerfeld's trip down the supermarket aisle at Chanel to Jeremy Scott's Pop-tastic debut at Moschino, the Fall 2014 runways were infused with American spirit. In this issue, we explore how the dream of America—the ease, the freedom, the iconography—is inspiring fashion around the world. Highlights include:
"The Dream Team." Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci selects and styles sixteen models, actors, DJs, and artists—"every kind of person, from 'bon ton' to club kids"—who represent his vision of America now. Photographs by Angelo Pennetta. Profile by Tim Blanks.
"Burning Down the House." Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler are building an American fashion empire by breaking all the rules. Binx Walton and Julia Nobis model the duo's clothes, while the designers discuss their method: "We like to pull from the underbelly of Americana—to find these pockets of the culture that aren't chic and make them fashion." Photographs by Roe Ethridge. Styling by Marie Chaix. Profile by Maya Singer.
"Is Jeremy Scott Serious?" Style.com enjoyed exclusive behind-the-scenes access as Jeremy Scott worked on his controversy-provoking debut collection for Moschino. Lindsey Wixson, Lily McMenamy, and Katy Perry vamp it up in Scott's exuberant clothes, while the designer answers his critics. "My show is no more or less frivolous than Prada's," says Scott. "Fashion should be fun and uplifting!" Photographs by Pierpaolo Ferrari. Profile by Susie Lau.
"Mi Vida Chola." Authentic style, made in L.A. Photographs by Nick Haymes.
"Katie and Luella Were Here!" An exclusive interview with Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier as they prepare their much-anticipated first collection for Marc by Marc Jacobs. Photographs by Kava Gorna.
Plus: The crew behind New York's Dover Street Market; what supermodel Arizona Muse did next; Garmento zine editor Jeremy Lewis' highly subjective "A to Z of American Fashion"; our popular ranking of the Top 10 Shows of Fall 2014 by number of page views on Style.com; and much, much more.

Refreshingly down-to-earth or absolutely out of this world, the new collections had it both ways. Fall found designers warming up to fleecy shearling and cozy knits. Normcore was born. But there were also searing color combinations and optic prints out of an Ibiza rave. Other resonant ideas on the runways included modern takes on sixties silhouettes and evocatively sheer evening gowns.
