Stacey Bendet and Julianne Hough are among those who will host digital wellness classes this week to mark the launch of Alice + Olivia’s new fitness accessories and coordinated apparel sets at Saks Fifth Avenue. Bendet, chief executive officer and chief creative officer of Alice + Olivia and a dedicated practitioner of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga,
Alaïa may have become a byword for a certain kind of glamorous silhouette, but that’s only one very sliver of the house’s vast repertoire. For fall, the Maison Alaïa studio focused on daywear, a direction reinforced by the profusion of flat footwear styles on offer, from slides and loafers to lace-up boots and knit sneakers.
The Dowager-Countess-to-Be is a mere 28 years old here, and the recipient of the Best Actress Evening Standard Awards for a play called The Private Ear and The Public Eye, which I think is technically TWO one-act plays which run concurrently; I wonder if she got two statuettes for this! What I do not wonder is if
Teyana Taylor is creating her first collection with retailer PrettyLittleThing after announcing her role as creative director for the brand. I got the opportunity to speak with the singer to learn more about the exciting launch. “My inspiration for this collection was heavily inspired by my favorite era . . . the ’90s. You know,
Having spent years training myself in the art of trend-hunting and It item–spotting, I could say confidently that I’m certain Dr. Martens boots are more popular than ever. In 2019, the heritage footwear brand reported double-digit growth (revenue stacks up now to a pretty cool £454.4 million—NBD), and that translates very visibly into just how often I
For his second couture collection for Azzaro, Olivier Theyskens wanted the lineup to reflect his creative process, which spans ready-to-wear and men’s wear offerings. “By the time I get to the couture part, I often want timeless dresses, ones that are just an idea, sometimes disconnected from the season,” he said during a showroom preview,
(a) I forgot that Forest Whitaker directed this movie, but for some reason he did not attend the premiere — or, at the very least, did not walk the red carpet. Also: Jerry O’Connell has a story credit on the script, and he ALSO did not attend, which seems out of character. (b) Folks were
We are only 25 days into 2021, but I can already say with certainty that pink will be the colour of the year. The spring summer 2021 collections were vast and varied, but designers from all cities were united in what they were aiming to achieve with the clothes they created for spring 2021. They
Well, team, we’ve officially made it to 2021. Congrats all around! To be standing here, on the other side of the hardest year ever, is an accomplishment worth celebrating. Although the challenges of yesteryear trolled the hell out of us, they also taught us a ton of new skills to keep in our beauty arsenals. Maskne?
It’s hard to deny that shopping these days can appear a little overwhelming. With IRL browsing off limits due to the current climate, we’re all having to go 100% digital, but with so many online stores out there it can be hard to know where to start. Of course, we all have our go-tos whose ‘new in’
Stepping back a full century – perhaps in the hope that the 2020s will also roar – Russian couturier Ulyana Sergeenko sought escape in period glamor. With her 10th anniversary collection, she took inspiration from Russian silent-movie star Vera Kholodnaya to produce a lineup chock full of Art Deco references, from artist Erté and the
Every season, new handbag trends make their way into the street style world, and each season, we eagerly scout said accessories. Despite fashion weeks not taking place IRL, there are still a load of new bags coming in with Gucci’s Jackie the Prada Cleo being two of the most popular styles. They’re fashion-forward and have a serious street
Step 1: Make sure your hair is freshly washed, and blow-dry your fringe how you usually like it to sit. Then comb the fringe forward and separate from the sides of the hair by either clipping them out of the way or tucking them behind your ears. Step 2: Split your fringe into three sections:
Beyoncé: Ice Princess. That’s the visual inspired by Icy Park, the singer’s latest drop in her Adidas x Ivy Park collection. The third iteration of the collection is designed to bring the street to the slopes with an assortment of apparel, footwear and accessories that blend alpine-inspired elements with classic streetwear references. The size-inclusive collection
Stéphane Ashpool whipped together an energetic film and clothes that reflected his view on street style — flashy and richly textured, with a streak of romance. A model flaunting a long trenchcoat in orange crackled leather trench gave it a dramatic twirl. Another wore a light pink suede bomber, embellished with shiny gold patches. Ashpool
Like the soul-searching Peer Gynt, Sarah-Linh Tran and Christophe Lemaire compared their fall collection, with its wintry color palette and tone-on-tone layers, to an onion. It may be a humble vegetable, but it is also eminently versatile and full of flavor, so proved an apt metaphor. Intending to cater to the current need for protection
Chinese designer Ziggy Chen, inspired by the Classical Gardens of Suzhou, a UNESCO world heritage site, fused natural and architectural influences in a wardrobe for the 21st-century gentleman. His softened-up three-piece suits, in a patchwork of natural fabrics sourced from small producers, had the look of worn-in military uniforms with their rows of contrasting buttons.
You’d think that taking on an extra gig as creative director of Diesel would pile on the stress for Glenn Martens, but according to him, designing his Y/Project collection this season was a cinch. It’s the first time the Paris-based brand has merged men’s wear and women’s wear into a single unified collection, and Martens
A yearning for unspoiled nature was the starting point for Wooyoungmi’s fall collection. “Like any other person, I’ve become increasingly more concerned by the environment. But after reading ‘The Memory’ by Bernard Werber, where the protagonists go back in the past and explore nature, and then ‘Forgotten Beasts’ from American illustrator Matt Sewell, I felt
If you’re looking for some fresh outfit inspiration to potentially test out in 2021, you’ve landed in the right spot. That’s right. We took a scroll through the feeds of some of our favourite fashion follows to uncover modern looks that are simple yet incredibly forward. While you’ll definitely notice trendy elements in each, the common
Anecdotally speaking, when you work in the fashion industry, you fall into one of two categories: You either love tracksuits or think by wearing one, you’ve given up on life. I am in the former category—I have always had an affinity for sportswear. It’s not that I’m especially sporty (netball in Y6 was probably my
Gold hoops are one of those items, like skinny jeans and a white T-shirt, which in theory should be very easy to find, however in practice it can be difficult to find the perfect one. Over a year ago fashion influencer Lucy Williams released her latest collection with jewellery brand Missoma, and the gold hoops quickly
Many in fashion are playing it safe these days. In tough times, people tend to stick to the tried and tested. Not so Véronique Nichanian, whose fall collection for Hermès was a stretch for a house known for hewing close to its traditions and operating at a distance from the buzzy fashion world outside. The
Only a few weeks into 2021, and it feels like we’re all just living in Olivia Rodrigo’s world. The 17-year-old High School Musical: The Musical: The Series actress kicked off the year with a breakup song titled “Drivers License” that’s dominating the charts and a moody music video to match. I’ve kept the track on
Capturing the essence of California, where the threat of natural disaster is everyday, and the future thinking to mitigate it a chief industry, L.A. designer Reese Cooper brought his men’s and women’s catwalk to the historic Mt. Wilson Observatory. The tailoring-meets-outdoor gear head collection stood up to the dramatic indoor-outdoor setting, further elevating 23-year-old Cooper
Lockdown is proving fruitful for Peter Dundas, who has just added men’s wear to his burgeoning lifestyle offer. He designed women’s pre-fall and men’s wear together, and the latter includes shirts and languid tops, all with a Seventies rock ’n’ roll feel. Dundas had already been doing men’s bespoke pieces, and said the time was
Creating clothes in virtual times poses a unique challenge for fashion designers: how to make outfits that pop on the screen, but also look great on the body. Lisi Herrebrugh and Rushemy Botter took a crack at squaring the circle with their pre-fall collection for Nina Ricci, which was all sharp lines and bold colorblocking.
Emily Ratajkowski is already a proven style star, and she’s shaping up to be a pro at maternity style as well. The supermodel first shared that she’s expecting her first child with husband Sebastian Bear-McClard on Vogue wearing a Jonathan Simkhai slip dress. If you’re wondering how similar her pregnancy style is to her regular
When I first heard that The Ordinary was launching a concealer this time last year, I geared up to give it a go. In fact, it was probably the first concealer in years that I was genuinely excited to try. But when the world turned upside down last spring, so too did our hopes of an
The late Joe Brainard has been described as an “unclassifiable” artist, though he is associated with the New York School of creative types that turned out poetry, art and performances in the 1950s and 1960s. Hard also to pigeonhole the men’s wear Jonathan Anderson creates for Loewe, consistently daring — and occasionally confounding. This season
