Nicholas Ghesquiére said he was inspired by technology for his latest collection at Louis Vuitton, but the clothes themselves took us not to the future but to the early days of the internet, when AOL was still sending out trash-filler CD-Roms and Hot Topic hawked metal lunchbox purses with Emily the Strange sneering…
Karl Lagerfeld, of late, has been somewhat obsessed with the domain of the proles—this idea of populist spaces, except they’re “elevated” to his standards of Chanel bourgeoisie. Recent runway shows have included a Chanel supermarché and a faux feminist protest, both of which were received with giddy enthusiasm, so his…
Fashion Month: So exciting! So glamorous! So many beautiful models, who are very bored and tired!
Janelle Monáe attended Stella McCartney’s show at Paris Fashion Week Monday and was ready to steer herself into Spring 2016, amirite? I don’t know why she’s holding her braids like handlebars, but it looks cool; very editorial.
Rihanna looks lovely at Christian Dior’s Spring-Summer 2016 ready-t0-wear collection, presented during Paris Fashion Week. The full look—a prim pink coupled with knee-high black boots with lucite heels—was spot on. Plus, those flowers:
In several unusual Fashion Week moves, the Olsen twins moved the spring 2016 presentation for their consistently impressive and stunningly pricey line The Row from New York to Paris, where the press and retailers were invited to a showroom preview on Tuesday featuring less than half of the collection.
Is it lesbian sex-positive? Commentary on the fact that you can’t actually walk in those invisible-heel shoes? A Lee McQueen dis? A Leigh Bowery rip? Who knows but this is the dude who had guys walking the runway with exposed dicks at his last Menswear show, so like, just accept that it’s art, okay.
Have you guys seen the new Dries?!?! Could you die?!?! Could you pee all over yourself?!? Could you swim in those brocades until you literally suffocate?!??
Simon Porte Jacquemus, one of the best new Parisian designers in existence, presented his Spring collection in a manner of performance art, with the main thesis seeming to say: go ahead quit the shitty job you hate before you croak, dude.
“DO YOU FEEL THE BLOOD MOON?” asks Maison Margiela’s Stepford space witches, in a creepy stage whisper. “I DOOOOOOOO.”
Grills have long been an adornment made for the flexers of the world, but these are some of the most extreme you’ll ever see and they’re the work of a woman named Dolly Cohen.
Dutch designer Iris van Herpen's ideas are perpetually voluminous, unhindered by limitations of fabric: if she can't find the material she wants in the known universe, she just invents it. That's what happened (again) with her stunning Fall 2015 show in Paris this week, in which she transformed her models into raw…
There are two kinds of friends you drag into a poorly-lit fitting room when trying on clothes: the kind who lie right to your face and tell you that everything looks good no matter what, and the kind who encourage you to buy a top that exposes one of your breasts.
This is painful because Givenchy is one of my faves, but this is ridiculous: for Fall 2015, Riccardo Tisci sent a runway of models in baby hairs and nose rings, with stones glued to their faces a la piercings.
In the second installment of our Fall/Winter 2015 Fashion Month series entitled "Fuck a ____; Wear a _____," we bid a glad adieu to the tents we were wearing two weeks ago and say major fucking bonjour to these fashionable sleeping bags proffered this week by the god Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garçons.
Yesterday, while hanging out at Paris fashion week, Vogue style editor-at-large Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis snapped and shared this picture of homeless person reading the famous fashion magazine. "Paris is full of surprises...and @voguemagazine readers in unexpected places," Thurn and Taxis captioned the Instagram…
The perfect photo set out of Paris Fashion Week, now with the perfect caption:
Kim Kardashian and Jared Leto debuted equally questionable hair decisions Thursday at Paris Fashion Week.
Karl Lagerfeld has clearly been looking at footage from feminism's second wave for inspiration—but to what end?
If Comme des Garçons' Rei Kawakubo has her way, next spring we will all be praying at the altar of our own ovaries, in her brilliant crimson odes to blood and guts and "roses, but not a pretty rose." It is brilliant, it is sculptural, it is clothing designed to never let the wearer forget that we're literally all the…
