Vivienne Westwood Fall 2019: Fashion Protest

Vivienne Westwood’s Fall 2019 runway show was all about graphic protest through fashion, although Vogue’s Luke Leitch’s review was more a protest of the protest than a review…he discussed literally nothing shown but rather complained about being sold clothes while being “preached” to about sustainability. Sustainability and pollution in the fashion industry is not about…

Coach 1941 Fall 2019

The Coach 1941 Fall 2019 collection was a youthful interpretation of 50’s and Western influences with fringe platform creepers and a fresh take on moccasins; checkered polos, plaid shirts and matching sheer pants; coats with western flare yokes; vibrant colors including blues, lime green, fuchsia, and aquamarine contrasting wine, deep brown, and black; the fabric…

Helmut Lang Fall 2019

Helmut Lang’s Fall 2019 collection was like a cool take on a retrospective notion of modernity: the transparent coat, shear tops and pants with contrasting fabric pocket exposed from the layer beneath, unique straps with hook and eye closures-some in silver lamé- were details that made the collection stand out. I will definitely be sewing…

Trend Alert- Mini Low Down: Bitty Bags Pre-Fall 2018 Spring/Summer 2019

Small bags have been hitting the runways hard since LV showed it’s small boxy trunks and Moschino caused a sensation with quirky bags made to look like (extra)ordinary objects. From Balmain to Chanel, houses have begun putting out alternatives to the classic clutch and small handbag or pocket-book. We’ve seen menswear shift to accommodate men’s…

Fenty X Puma Spring/Summer 2018 SS18

Barbie met Tomb Raider in Fenty X Puma’s Spring/Summer 2018 runway show. The collection played on athleisure with a retro take on athleticwear: wind-breakers, track suits and shorts layered over cycling shorts, neoprine and diving suits turned catsuits, trendy off the shoulder dresses with long sleeves. The bad looks included the unflattering monokini- a maxi…

KTZ Spring/Summer 2018

Chainmale- some made of soda can tabs, army green cargo pants and parkas- the later with graphic leather letter and arrow applique (omg, the matching socks: 🖤), knits gorgeously destroyed in a “trying too hard” kind of way, patches, the ever popular quilting, black boots with white paint platter…the KTZ Spring/Summer 2018 London Men’s Fashion…

Fly a Kite Craig Green! Spring/Summer 2018

 😂👏🏻 I’m having a Margiela Spongebob SQUAREPANTS flashback thanks to Craig Green’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Frumpy rags and futuristic scarecrow clothesline alternatives remind us that while fashion can be art, fashion isnt modern art(s and crafts). Listen, put this in an art display and call it “Hanger Kites”…dont send it down the runway my little…

MAN Spring/Summer 2018

A unique lapeled jacket paired with wide legged blue pants, mesh tank tops and sheer shirts, open weave sleeveless shirts, pockets on the outside, and voluminous draped pants strut the runway of the MAN Spring/Summer 2018 show, which was a success except for the Gumby jumpsuit. Sadly, that same amount of originality and flare was…

Matthew Miller Spring/Summer 2018 

A dark and mysterious air and beauty preceeded the fashion at Matthew Miller Spring/Summer 2018 Menswear runway show. The hair and makeup featured black smudged lips, dark stringy greasy wet hair, and pale matte faces.   Strap and pocket details characterized unique tanks, cropped vests, and jackets. Dangling belt bags, huge pockets, even outerwear attached…

Moschino Resort 2018

Pinup print sheer dresses, patchwork denim and floral print suits, graphic sweaters, overalls, cow hide jackets and coats,  horizontal rainbow stripes, cowboy boots and hats, more of the 2D printed clothing on bodysuits, flame prints, 8-ball bikini tops, SpongeBob trippin balls, and last but not least the male leather catsuit, which really shows up the romphim or…
