The Valentino Super H and Star-Studded Collections are now in stores. Suddenly our tax returns don’t look that impressive.
I previously blogged about The Star Studded capsule collection, a Wonder Woman inspired collab with Spider Gwen Paltrow’s obscenely indulgent Goop Market pop-up. Well, everyone is now welcome to shop the full line, which includes a few extra pieces like a studded ballet flat, a signature of the label, and THIS STAR PRINTED DRESS WITH STUDDED LEATHER COLLAR OMG!!!
A few weeks ago, you learned about the superhero splendor that is the Valentino X Goop “Wonder Woman” collection. A capsule that was only a small part of a larger collection set to be released in April. Well, here now is yet another glimpse of how Valentino plans to superpower your wardrobe. Continue reading →
My eyes widened as I approached the shop–catching site of the name Goop Mrkt first. My pace quickened, then slowed almost as quickly, my eagerness threatening to burn through the thin veil of hubris I intended to hide the truth of my bank account behind. Then, I veered right through glass doors that had only just opened 38 minutes prior. With the seeming ease of Wondy hopping into an invisible jet.
Wada’s illustration showcases reference after glorious reference
Recently, a fan at ECCC over the weekend commissioned the artist for this piece of Psylocke in McQueen, and ended up getting something even better: a referential Kevin Wada original. A Wada x McQueen collab, you could call it.
Fall is just around the corner, you guys. We’ve yet to hit a 100 degree day in NYC, but while we’re out and about getting a golden glow, the fall collections are starting to arrive in stores. Here’s the first of a few favorites in this mini series to get you excited for the approaching season.
Not since Paradise Kisshave I witnessed a fusion of luxury fashion and manga that sent my heart soaring, and indulged my every fashion obsessed geek girl’s dream. The only other book to ever do that was Sina Grace’s Not My Bag. Which was in fact largely a comic book ode to Alexander McQueen (so obviously a favorite of mine) and, note to self: It’s high time I review that for you here! In the meantime… Continue reading →
Season after season The Blonds are out to prove that they have more fun. And we are ever so grateful they take us along for the ride.
Remember last year’s Spring show, when the design duo drew inspiration from several iconic “Blonds” spanning all of time and space? Tinkerbell, Barbarella, Tweety, C3P0?
Well this time, they got all the material they needed from another widely recognizable blonde. Theworld’s sexiest most legendary crazy cat lady: Michelle Pfeiffer as Selina Kyle. That’s right: CATWOMAN!
Before the New 52, he was even happily married to Lois Lane.
For this month’s enditorial, we’re taking a nostalgic look back at the All- American Superfamily as depicted by Vogue. Shot by Mario Testino, top male model David Gandy portrays the Man of Steel in this fashion spread, not tearing towns apart, but simply being the all American boyscout we all love on a family outing. While supermodel (naturally) Carolyn Murphy paints Lois Lane as a super mom to her super darling. The women share the spotlight with supes sporting chic, retro feminine, near identical looks.
Luxurious and lady-like, heart-melting and super sweet.
V FOR VENDETTA ON THE ADRIAN WU RUNWAY | TFW FALL 2012
Well, we know of at least one designer who’s a huge V for Vendetta fan…. among a million other things, apparently. Not exactly how I would choose to reference a movie. What do you think of models parading around in, “look-at-me-trying-to-make-a-spectacle-I-mean-statement-about-politics,” Guy Fawkes masks?
Toronto Fashion Week didn’t know what hit it…and maybe neither did the designer….
Here, he attempts to explain:
“This collection is titled “Hierarchy of Needs”. I wanted to do a collection that ascetically looked dramatic, romantic, and a little bit wearable but very much a reflection of my own technique. Three years ago I came across a new way of sewing. I invented this sort of minimalistic bodice and ‘inverted pleating’ and it is these techniques that maybe have created a sort of new language in fashion. The cuts of the collection are taken by the ideas of old parisian clothing, the colours to the silhouette. Philosophically, I like my work to have context. I used the mask as a commentary to the specific comparisons between North American Politics versus European Politics and how it effects Human Rights by citing the movie “V for Vendetta”. My dream continues to be that one day I be hired by the house of Dior. I invite you to question every aspect of my work, from the pieces to the environment. I am inspired by people and people who effect my life. Enjoy”
And yet, I don’t think Raf Simons has anything to worry about.
