A roll call of familiar faces walked the Simone Rocha show this Autumn/Winter 2019 season in a clever take-note move from the designer who has so coined her aesthetic, and so early on in her career, that her shows tend now to veer on the to-be-expected side of the spectrum. Chloë Sevigny at the...

Scaled-back. Streamlined. Slimmed down. However you want to look at it, London Fashion Week is getting more and more compact. But whatever that may say about the health of the event itself, from a writer’s perspective it’s largely a positive. There’s more time to breathe; more...
Scaled-back. Streamlined. Slimmed down. However you want to look at it, London Fashion Week is getting more and more compact. But whatever that may say about the health of the event itself, from a writer’s perspective it’s largely a positive. There’s more time to breathe; more breaks from the constant cycle of snapping, uploading, and posting; and time, too, to consider the...

The planet’s health is at stake and some of this season’s designers made it their mission to prioritize that concern when creating their collections. As obvious of an effort as it may seem, it’s an essential part of what designers, particularly those working with bigger labels, should take into consideration, now more than ever. In our day to day, it’s relatively easy to forget about how...

Celebrating his fifth year as creative director at Coach, Stuart Vevers wanted to “open his mind,” as he put it after the show, and took a break from the American heartland he’d been exploring these past seasons. This time around, he explained, “the familiar becomes unfamiliar, vivid and uncanny. Dismantled and reassembled. Dipped in psychedelia.” This explains in part why Vevers, for his Fall...

Mixed-media artist Carly Mark and designer Ayla Argentina, the duo behind the new label Puppets and Puppets, just had an unusually busy and exciting week. Showing for the first time at NYFW, it was also their debut runway and their first ever joint collection as designers.

Animal prints, like camo patterns, seem to be a style that will never completely wither away. They might go away for a while, come back unnoticed in subtle touches here and there, but eventually, they always resurface in full (visual) force. If the question comes up among editors or younger...
Animal prints, like camo patterns, seem to be a style that will never completely wither away. They might go away for a while, come back unnoticed in subtle touches here and there, but eventually, they always resurface in full (visual) force. If the question comes up among editors or younger crowds, it is often mentioned that the look is overdone and not so subtle, by times associated with a...

There was something elegantly impertinent – or at the very least playfully rebellious – about Area’s Fall 2019 collection. Not in the sense that it was energetically youthful or symbolically antagonistic, like an early Jeremy Scott or Chromat show might have been, but rather because it felt like the label’s designers, Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk, had done exactly what they wanted,...

New York Fashion Week's F/W 2019 officially began earlier this week. Although typically broken into two shorter weeks – NYFW and NYFW men’s – this time around they have been somewhat combined, leaving menswear and womenswear shows overlapping.

That streetwear has infiltrated and changed fashion’s trajectory – as a field of study or as an industry – is nowadays well past the point of discussion, regardless of what any editor, designer, or buyer might say. It took a while for it to be taken as seriously as it took itself – something like four decades – and its increasing influence ruffled more than a few feathers along the way, but...

Until recently, Alejandro Gómez Palomo's label, Palomo Spain, was mostly unknown in the US market. The brand had already garnered some attention in Europe, especially after making it to the shortlist for 2017's LVMH Prize, and Palomo was being championed as the up and coming 'it designer' in his native country, but at that point few had heard of him in America, even in New York. That quickly...
