Marc Jacobs Took Us to the ‘80s in His Close-Out NYFW Show

Marc Jacobs, like so many designers this NYFW, went back to the ‘80s in a very real way for his Fall 2018 collection. Think cartoonishly huge shoulder pads, exaggerated coats, and LOTS of taffeta. The New York Times’ Vanessa Friedman described the mood as a requiem in a Cover Girl palette, with ...

#WhoIsShe: Faces of NYFW

As we flock from show to show, Fashion Week starts to not only feel like one big blur, but it can start to look like one too. While some might pine for a glimpse of a Hadid or pray that another Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell situation might majestically appear riding in on the high-horse of a dream, inst

Eckhaus Latta AW18: To Bushwick & Beyond

The rain fell in steady sheets this past Saturday afternoon turning the potholes and fractured concrete off of Bushwick’s Jefferson Avenue Subway stop into literal reasons to leap, skip and jump all the way to Eckhaus Latta’s AW 2018 show (at least for those of us not in heels). Getting off the trai ...

Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ NYFW Show Was Stunning

It's perfectly timed that New York Fashion Week coincided with the futuristic African savanna landscape of the much anticipated Black Panther. To celebrate, Marvel Studios brought the film to New York's most fashionable week. "Welcome to Wakanda," hit the runways on Monday featuring designs by Ch ...

Linder’s Fall/Winter 2018 Collection Was an Ode to Greek Mythology

Linder’s show at New York's St. Mark’s church brings the word “ethereal” to mind — which is a bit of a cliché for a fashion show in an old, beautiful church, right? But how else can a show consisting of a Pure Moods Volume One-inspired soundtrack, incandescent light spotlighting the runway, and a cl ...

The Olsen Twins Gave Out Crystals as Party Favors

Would it have been a true Olsen Twins experience at The Row's Fall 2018 show without a pleasantly befuddling moment? Of course not! On Monday morning, Mary-Kate and Ashley showed their collection for The Row wearing oversized coats (of course) and sipping on to-go coffees. In the goody bags given

Christopher Bailey’s Last Burberry Show Will Honor LGBTQ Youth

Christopher Bailey, Burberry's president and chief creative officer, announced in October he would be leaving after 17 years. But before he leaves, he's shaking up the signature plaid to promote diversity and honor the LGBTQ+ community.  His final collection, the autumn/winter 2018 collection pre ...

Chromat’s Fall 2018 Show Featured Flaming Hot Cheetos

Leave it to Chromat to bring the snack vibes, both in looks and actual snacks alike. Flaming Hot Cheetos were sent down the runway, cleverly (and conveniently) incorporated into the actual pieces themselves, zip-tied onto a pair of orange pants. Energy drinks were kept in koozy-like pockets sewn int

Alice Longyu Gao Is Bringing Harajuku Style to Times Square

If you find yourself needing a dreamy reprieve from NYFW — but a reprieve that will invigorate not put you to sleep — Alice Longyu Gao’s Harajuku-style installation “Pericura” is your spot. Running from Feb. 10 to Feb. 14th at Moxy Times Square, the installation includes a beauty bar complete wi ...

Kim Shui AW18: New Extremes

Kim Shui once told me that, “if you’re not living your brand, it doesn’t make sense.” The designer’s background firmly roots her to a culture of globalism and for her first runway show this past Saturday, she didn’t stray far from this definitive ethos. Staged in an empty art gallery on 14th Street, ...

Tom Ford’s ’80s Fever Dream Was Also About Pussy Power

If Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection is any indication, the eighties are never fully over. Think DayGlo-hued animal prints, lots of sequins, and the city of Beverly Hills. Housed at the Park Avenue Armory, the room bathed in lavender light and the vibes were just as flashy as the folks in ...
