Fashion Activists

March 1, 2017

The state of the States is a recurring theme worldwide, with designers taking a political stand in their collections being shown this month. With New York, London, and Milan under our belts, it seems that human rights are on everyone’s minds this fashion cycle.

Prabal Gurung created tee shirts inspired by the issues of the Women’s Marches, and hopes to be able to allow purchasers a choice of which charity the proceeds from their shirt will support. An immigrant himself, Gurung feels he owes it to the country that gave him so many opportunities, to use his voice to promote justice.

Jonathan Simkhai made his views clear by wearing an activist tee shirt while taking his bows at his recent show.

The tee is available for pre-sale on his website, and will cost $95, with proceeds going to Planned Parenthood.

Meanwhile, across the pond, Donatella Versace incorporated impowering messages into her Versace runway collection:

One of the most meaningful statements came from Missoni, who sent all of the models down the runway for the finale, wearing pink pussy hats, which were also the gift left on editors and buyers seats at the show. Designer Angela Missoni took a moment to address the crowd, stating. “There is a bond between us that will keep us strong and safe. The bond that unites all those who respect human rights. Let’s show the world that the fashion community is united and fearless!”

This activism started last season, with Maria Grazia Chiuri notably showing a feminist statement tee shirt with an embellished skirt at Dior.

We expect to see the trend continue to develop as Paris Fashion Week begins, and even more designers choose to use thier platforms to entice, as well as incite us to take action.

Fashion insiders will be donning white bandanas this fashion week, in a quiet show of solidarity, unity and inclusiveness.
The movement, started by The Business of Fashion website, asks that designers and show attendees participate in the initiative.

To get involved, simply tie a white bandana around your wrist, neck, head or bag and upload a selfie to social media with the hashtag #tiedtogether.

Designers are being urged to include the bandanas as an accessory in their show, and to wear one when taking their final bows, to spread the message throughout the month of international fashion weeks.

Intended to be a positive statement, not a political one, the creators hope to show support to human issues worldwide.

Fishnets

January 9, 2017

Everything old becomes new again, and one of the latest styling trends is no exception.

Fishnet stockings have been around for decades, taking on personas from sexy-sleazy (Fredericks of Hollywood) to grunge (Madonna’s Material Girl). This time around, the look is much cleaner, less overt, and in some cases downright sporty. No garter belt necessary here!

Pair them with old school sneakers and rolled up pants for casual take on the trend.

Merch

September 26, 2016

Fashion is going through a phase right now, with business leaders trying to figure out when and how is the best time to release new products. As fashion month progresses, more and more designers are showing “see now, buy now, and wear now” collections. Department and specialty stores alike, are struggling with seasonality and mark downs, effectively taking place before anyone can even wear the product. While retailers struggle to find the next big thing to drive sales, there is one item that is having a major resurgence; the concert tee shirt. The category has become so strong, that it has been coined with it’s own name: merch.
Merch wasn’t intended to be fashion. It was created to mark an event, and show support for your favorite artist. Until now. Merch has taken on a life of it’s own, and old concert tees have become chic collectibles. Artists from Justin Bieber, to Kanye West, are selling lines of tour inspired merchandise in  pop up stores, (Saint Pablo tour) and boutiques. Bieber has placed his Purpose Tour items at Urban Outfitters, and had an exclusive collaboration with uber high-end retailer, Barneys New York. Even Zayn Malik got into the act, with a line of “Mind of Mine” merch available exclusively on zaynmalik.com, where a 21 piece collection of items “he would like to wear”, is on sale.
But don’t think you can toss any old concert tee on with just a pair of jeans and go. Merch has been elevated to a whole new level, with street style stars making the look their own. Below are a few of our favorites:

Give ‘Em The Slip

August 10, 2016

Slinky slip dresses are back in a big way this season, with street style stars everywhere embracing the look. The secret this time around, is to take an irreverant approach to styling. Layer it over a tee, add a sneaker and suddenly what started out as sexy lingerie is now a fun, casual piece to wear during the day.

This blush toned slip gets toughened up when layered over a grey heathered tee shirt and topped with a chunky cardigan. Boots take the look into fall with ease.

Dress Over Pants

August 3, 2016

Just when we think there isn’t a new way to style jeans, or layer, we spot something new that elevates our everyday items to high fashion status.

Suddenly, chic women are wearing ultra girlie dresses with slim jeans or trousers underneath for a new play on proportion and quirky femininity.

At DKNY, a crimson slip dress layers over slouchy trousers.

Are you ready to pull this look off ? The secret is clearly in the mix…be sure to balance a dres that is uber feminine with pants that are more casual ( you can’t go wrong with skinny jeans!) and have fun with your footwear. It’s the perfect way to breathe life into those girlie dresses relegated to the back of the closet!

 

It’s All In The Details: Tassels

June 10, 2016

This season, we are seeing a return to the humble trim. Tassels are adorning everything from clothing, accessories and even swim suits. The vibe ranges from ethnic to homemade, as rows of tassels  give garments a decorative edge.

A simple white dress is finished with a row of tied tassels.

While there are lots of ready to wear options in the shops right now, it’s an easy DIY update to last season’s items. Pick up a yard or two of tasseled trim at your local sewing, craft or even home decor shop, and sew it on the hem of a simple, dress, top or  a pair of shorts to get the look.

Fashion Friday: All Laced Up

May 27, 2016

Lace up tops and dresses are seemingly everywhere this summer, with styles ranging from risqué, ( we’re talking to you Kardashian-Jenners!) to retro.

While the laced “down-to-there” bodysuit is definately happening, we’ve included a few other ways to get the look without showing too much of the goods along the way.

Chiara Ferragni of the popular blog “The Blond Salad” wears the quintessential black bodysuit version, pairing it with midrise slim jeans and casual accessories for a look of easy sensuality.

Off The Shoulder

May 12, 2016

Every season, it seems there are a handful of “must haves” that update our wardrobes instantly. This spring, one of those items is the off the shoulder top.  Often rouched and pulled down to expose the shoulders, this style is reminiscent of a peasant top. And while those embroidered boho versions are popular, it’s the somewhat sleeker iterations that look freshest.

Olivia Palermo makes everything look effortless, including this off the shoulder blue shirt paired with rolled up jeans and printed flats.
