Celine FW19 Marks a New Era for the French Brand

Celine FW19 Marks a New Era for the French Brand
Celine FW19 embodied everything we’ve come to love about the brand — effortless, ready-to-wear pieces that exude a cool factor all their own. Since taking the reigns of the French fashion house, Hedi Slimane has infused his own signature style reminiscent of his days at YSL into every collection. Celine Fall 2019, however, marks a new journey for the designer. Though glamorous and quite obviously vintage-inspired, the collection is a word we thought we’d never associate with a Slimanian Celine…

Balmain’s Fall 2019 RTW Spikes Through Paris Fashion Week

Balmain’s Fall 2019 RTW Spikes Through Paris Fashion Week
Fashion and life are performative. We talk about ourselves as if we morph through different versions of our persona depending on circumstance, time and the environment around us. In reality, the multitude of personalities and styles we wear are not just interchangeable hats that we swap when convenient; they are individual facets that intermittently share the spotlight of display but ultimately culminate in “you.” A painter’s palette has many colors but they fuse together on…

Rick Owens Unleashes Sexy Aliens in His AW 2019 Collection
Rick Owens is known for being a maestro of spectacle, orchestrating head-turning moments in almost every show he runs (i.e. models wearing models in his Spring/Summer 2016 collection). This time around, Owens did not disappoint. Partnering with Instagram artist Salvia (@salvjiia) for makeup, Owens paraded 44 models, some as alien-like apparitions, in sexy, spacey couture down the runway. Sleaze was front and center: exposed midriffs, shining thighs and snap-clasped crotches turned on the sex…

Premiere: Embrace the Unknown With the Music Video for Avonlea’s “Stranger”
Emerging artist Avonlea, who has previously earned acclaim from Billboard, L’Officiel USA, and Nylon for her buoyant melodies and raw lyrics, is back with an introspective and electrifying track, “Stranger.” Both the song and the accompanying video describe, with uncanny accuracy, the somberness and freedom that result from the end of a relationship.

A Fendi Farewell to Karl Lagerfeld

A Fendi Farewell to Karl Lagerfeld
Each seat at the Fendi Autumn/Winter collection in Milan had, as usual, Karl Largerfeld’s sketches of the subsequently modeled designs. Along with them, lay a card much like at a funeral, with the date of Lagerfeld’s passing, a heart, and his recognizable signature. This collection would be his last for Fendi.
