Jil Sander, who famously left her eponymous label in 2000, returned in 2003, and then left again in 2004, is back. Again. While the industry was upset and shocked at Raf Simons’ abrupt ousting from the house, he’s since landed himself a plum gig over at Dior. Once that was done, everyone could heave a Read more →
When news broke this morning that Yves Saint Laurent, would indeed be dropping the “Yves” to become Saint Laurent Paris, we have to say we were pretty stunned. And that got us thinking: What if other storied brands followed YSL’s suit, and ‘updated’ their brand image? Apparently we weren’t the only ones wondering. Henry Holland Read more →
What would you never be caught wearing? Uggs!
What’s your favorite song? Anything Chopin.
Where are you headed now? Work!
i-D‘s Lights, Camera, Action issue is hitting newsstands May 10, and who better to grace one of its eight covers than fashion’s man of the moment, Raf Simons? The designer has certainly had his share of ups and downs as of late. After allegedly being “unceremoniously dumped” from Jil Sander to make way for the Read more →
The Tribeca Film Festival kicked off last night in New York and it brought out a pretty chic red carpet. The party was held at the State Supreme Courthouse (a place where we’re sure none of the attendees ever want to be photographed during the day…anyway). The spring fashion was out in full force with Read more →
The waiting game is finally over. Raf Simons will succeed John Galliano as the creative director of Dior, the New York Times is reporting. “The first time I heard about the Dior position, I thought, ‘This feels right’” Simons told Cathy Horyn at the Times. “It is one of the ultimate challenges, and a dream Read more →
Whew, we made it!
Yep, fashion month is finally over and while right now the whole thing feels like one big blur of taxi cab rides, celebrity sightings, unbelievably sore feet and, of course, beautiful clothing–there were a ton of memorable, big stories to come out of it.
From the Raf Simons/Jil Sander bombshell, to the naked hat fashion show, we recap the biggest moments from fashion week Fall 2012.
Fur and faux furs bags were all the rage at Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Dries van Noten, and Michael Kors, and while the perspex bags at 3.1 Phillip Lim and the cute minauderies from Diane von Furstenberg may not be totally useful, they sure are cute.
Or course if you need a bag that will actually fit your things inside it, the giant leather carryalls at Alexander Wang might just do the trick.
Ponytails are the new braids. From New York all the way through Paris—the ponytail reigned supreme during the fall 2012 season. Obviously the pony is a perennial favorite, but it had a particularly strong showing this season. But the style can be more challenging to reproduce than it seems. On the catwalk, it’s a high-fashion look that reads casual and low-maintenance. But on the sidewalk, it has the potential to come across quite lackluster, horribly humdrum, and soccer mom-ish.
That’s where we come in—a few of our favorite designers (in collaboration with their amazing runway hair stylists) have found easy and interesting ways to retell the age-old pony tale. Here, ten quick tips for the prettiest, fashion-forward, DIY ponies ever, straight from the fall 2012 runways.
We’ve scoured the Fall 2012 collections for the most amazing shoes, and it was easy, because there were plenty. The best part? Footwear options for Fall 2012 are a lot more reasonable than their Spring 2012 counterparts. (Remember those 6 inch Versace lucite wedges?)
Fall 2012 saw lots of wide heels and mary-janes on the runway, and sometimes both simultaneously–like at Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Marni. Knee-high black boots ruled at Alexander Wang, Altuzarra, Givenchy, and Rick Owens, and ladylike pumps could be found at Lanvin, Nina Ricci, and Jil Sander. Of course, if you’re looking for something crazy, look no further than Alexander McQueen’s heel-less fur shoes. Impractical, but so lovely.
Take a look at all the amazing shoes from Fall 2012 and just try to pick a favorite. It’s near impossible.
