How to up Your Off-Duty Game

We’ll always remember Tyra Banks’ sage advice from a serendipitous episode of America’s Next Top Model, imploring us to wear a white tank top and jeans for an off-duty look that was as timeless as it was simple. While her words still bear some truth, let’s face it, it’s 2018 and we’re looking to wear something that reflects these sentiments. As we try to think outside the box, we arrive at the inevitable, the mixing of color into our wardrobes in ways that Sies Marjan’s Sander Lak would approve ...

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 clothes that swallowed instead of enhanced — which might not be an entirely bad thing depending on your perspective. The show was an interesting approach to take, considering that Marc Jacobs the labe ...

We’re Calling It. Sadie Clayton Is the One to Watch at LFW

Sadie Clayton is exactly what we’ve all been waiting for. Since launching her eponymous luxury sculptural womenswear label in 2015, the British designer has been shaking up the fashion world one catwalk at a time. And we’re not just talking about the head-turning duds -- we’ll get to those. From the start, the London-based, biracial designer has been all about diversity and individuality. She consistently rejects homogeneity in her casting, and her army of models have stormed the London, Berlin ...

#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, instead we’re looking for the new faces that have come to grace the runways this season. We’ve rounded up 9 new models that you should get to know now. You know what they say about keeping your eyes peele ...

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 train, it became immediately evident which commuters were on their way to the show. Whether it was a camera slung around their necks, or a hand-painted trench coat, no one really knew where they were goin ...

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 Chromat, Fear of God, LaQuan Smith, Wale Oyejide of Ikire Jones, and more. The incredible statement jewelry was designed by Douriean Fletcher for the superhero blockbuster. The film, which opens Friday, ...

3 Low-Key Valentine’s Day Date Looks

It's become the norm to gripe about the commercialization of Valentine's Day and the amalgamation of cheesy marketing ploys that make us feel like we have to do something extraordinarily special on February 14th. We already know we don't have to tell you that, well, you don't have to do anything at all. However, we also don't think there's anything embarrassing about celebrating the holiday with your friends or significant other in a way that feels organic to you. Plus, what's wrong with treatin

How to Give Your Classic Coat a Modern Refresh

Here's our fresh take on updating your winter staples. For those who don’t always feel like methodically layering shirt, under sweatshirt, under jacket, under heavy coat, opt for the layer that does it all, heavy duty shearling. No longer just Amelia Earheart's favorite aviator staple, a shearling coat has become a chic calling-card for the street style set. Heading London way for fashion week? Wrap up!!  Yoyo Cao knows that when it comes to coats, it does matter what’s on the inside that c ...

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 clutch with a cosmic, swirled orb be described? Linder had shown men’s collections only during the past couple of seasons, and despite its menswear origins in 2013, the label showed its men’s and wo ...

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 to each person was a palm-sized crystal in either black or white with an accompanying note. “This crystal is a protective stone which repels and blocks negative energies," it read. "It also works in ...

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 presented February 17 at London Fashion Week, will be a celebration of the LGBTQ+ community — and will also be the premiere of a new rainbow edition of the famous check.  In a press release, Bailey sa ...
