Interestingly, this is no surprise -- the brand also scored the most mags in spring 2013 and fall 2012.
Our coverage of New Zealand Fashion Week continues! We chat with the cool kids of Auckland about their "cauldron goth" collection and how Kiwi street style stacks up against New York or London.
We're taking a break(-ish) from London Fashion Week to bring you interviews and reviews on the coolest Kiwi designers at New Zealand Fashion Week. First on our list is NYNE, the Wang of Wellington -- and yes, we explain NZ slang in this interview.
Our coverage of New Zealand Fashion Week continues with Coop by Trelise Cooper, who totally gave us a toothache!
Unlike the Big Four fashion weeks, events like Audi's Fashion Festival Singapore are a mix of local designers launching their latest collections and international designers showing theirs for a second time to a new audience. On Friday, Japanese designer Tsumori Chisato showed her fall 2013 collection to Singapore fans, months after debuting it at Paris Fashion Week.
For those of us who love the Kate Spade attitude but are more tomboy than girly girl, the brand's Kate Spade Saturday offshoot—which launched this spring—is something of a sartorial godsend. While the currently available styles are a fun, not-too-serious mix of '80s-inspired prints—I love the windowpane check and the blue paint splatter best—fall's focus is a deep, dark palette with just a hint of '70s ski bunny. But whatever era Kate Spade Saturday is channeling, the sporty, modern feel is the same. Click through for a first look at the fall collection. And shop Kate Spade Saturday's spring offerings at Saturday.com.
Last season we decided that seeing one collection and one look at a time was not a good enough way to determine color trends. You can't remember everything all at once. (At least, those of us who haven't been blessed with a photographic memory cannot.) So what's one to do? Put all the collections together, of course.
Insta. Tweet. Pin. Vine. Get up from your seat, and repeat. That sums up Fashion Month for many of us. And with new social media outlets steadily emerging, that part of the job doesn't look like that's going to change any time soon. But whose posts truly resonate with followers? PR agency Krupp Group teamed up with Curalate—an analytics firm that focuses on social platforms including Pinterest and Instagram—to see which images performed the best. So we've put together a list of the top 10 Instagram images from New York, London, Milan and Paris. Click through to see who topped the Instagram charts.
Fashion month: It's finally, truly over.
Aurélie Bidermann's fall collection was inspired by nature, and even more so than usual. The designer used real gingko leaves to create her intricate gold necklaces, and bakelite to mimic old ivory. "I'm being ethical," she said of the new technique in her Paris atelier. It sure looked authentic—and very Morocco in the early 1970s. (Bianca Jagger and Talitha Getty served as muses.)
For his runway debut, newly appointed Sonia Rykiel artistic director Geraldo da Conceicao made sure to make his presence known. While classic Rykiel was represented—knitted jackets in her signature purple, flouncy flamenco dresses in an easy black matte jersey, a series of kooky sweaters—there was plenty of new, too.
PARIS--A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou may be a through-and-through Frenchman, but he sure has a way with the English language. Some choice tidbits from today's presentation, where he walked us through fall 2013, first in French then in English:
I'm pretty sure the fashion industry breathed a collective sigh of relief this morning after Alexander Wang debuted his first-ever collection for Balenciaga. (Note: Fashionista did not attend the very exclusive show, but since we've covered Wang since the very beginning of his career, we felt it was important to address it on the site.) Relief because, most importantly, it wasn't ugly.
For his London runway debut, Tom Ford sent out a “Cross Cultural Multi Ethnic” collection—-his words, not mine-—filled with patchwork fur coats, zebra-print gowns, exploding cartoon-punch star bombers (POW!), and embroidered floral everything. It was excessive. My split-second reaction after looking at the images on WWD last night? "Wow, that's gross."
Tracy Reese's fall collection was inspired by her memories of going out in the 80s, and of course, featured some very FLOTUS-friendly frocks. She tells us all about it.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian made an unexpected appearance at Louise Goldin's show last season and caused a pretty big media shitstorm (and gave wa
Christian Siriano's girl got a whole lot more grown up over the course of one season. Gone were the pastel twinsets, polka dots, and ballerina buns of last spring, replaced by sophisticated pencil skirts, intricate gold hardware detailing and rich (though faux) furs for a collection the designer says was inspired by "the golden age of the Russian Opera."
