How To Emulate Gwyneth Paltrow’s 1990s Minimalist Style

Sliding Doors, 1998(Film still)

Her character in 1998’s Sliding Doors sports some seriously chic Calvin Klein ensembles. We examine the film’s lessons in life and style alike

What could possibly be better than one Gwyneth Paltrow? Well, two of course, both dressed head to toe in full-look Calvin Klein. Fortunately enough, this is exactly what the audience is treated to in the 1998 film Sliding Doors, where Paltrow plays Helen Quilley, a woman whose life splits into two parallel paths depending on whether or not she misses the tube, after being fired from her job in Public Relations for stealing vodka. (Relatable.) Alongside some highly profound commentary on serendipity and self-preservation, Sliding Doors is a filmic journey into the depths of the late-90s. From the mention of ‘mad cow...

Come Fly With Me – Fendi Creates Fake Airport For AW18 Menswear Show

Backstage at Fendi Menswear AW18Photography Arnaud Lafeuillade

Complete with a conveyor belt with Fendi-fied luggage, the collection featured a collaboration with IG artist @hey_reilly

“Coding, decoding, recoding”: The past and the present met today at Fendi, both in terms of the archival colours and pieces Silvia Venturini Fendi had looked at and brought completely up to date with her innate ability to splice vintage-odd with the now, but also how glamorous mid-century travel collided with today’s industrial get-from-A-to-B-as-painlessly-as-possible mentality. Fendi’s airport definitely pushed stress-free travel. “Yes, yes, which is what it was meant to,” Venturini Fendi said. Here’s what went down at the show. THE VENUE WAS TRANSFORMED INTO AN AIRPORT We were at the Fendi terminal, in a time warp mashup somewhere between the 60s and now. At...

Kaia Gerber And Karl Lagerfeld Teaming Up To Design A Collection

1200x600

Following in the footsteps of Tommy Hilfiger's successful collaboration with "it" model Gigi Hadid, Karl Lagerfeld, patron-saint-to-upcoming supermodels, has tapped Cindy Crawford's 16-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber to design a new line.

Gerber has walked for Chanel twice, even opening her first for the luxury brand, which is a huge achievement given her catwalk debut was last season. WWD reports the duo will be creating a collection of ready-to-wear apparel, jewelry, shoes and sunglasses, set to hit stores in September. The range will reportedly fuse Gerber's laid-back west coast style with Lagerfeld's penchant for "Parisian elegance."

Street Style Stars Unite For Emporio Armani’s New Campaign

EAW_ADV_SS18_2-1440x630

Everyone has a different story… and everyone wears Emporio Armani.

To the unknowing eye, Emporio Armani's SS18 campaign might look like the latest street style shoot. The models featured in the ads were cast on the street in Italy and major European cities, chosen for their distinct styles and personalities. They are from different cities, with a range of ages and jobs influencing how each interprets and carries the clothing. Tidbits about the characters appear on the images to highlight their uniqueness, with clever phrases like "paints nudes that look like landscapes" and "doesn't own a smartphone" piquing interest about the people behind the clothes. Prints, suiting and tailored pieces fill much of the collection, perhaps reflecting Italian and street style influences. The...

Top 5 Menswear Shows From Milan Fashion Week

1200x600 (4)

Milan is home to some of the most over-the-top luxury brands in menswear, so it's always a perfect place for fashion-a-holics like us get inspired for the coming season. Here are five of our favorite shows from MFW, which has just ended.

Versace

980x (9)

Donatella Versace doesn't know the meaning of moderation and thank god for that. The show featured all your favorite Versace tropes — animal prints, medusa heads, plaids, velvets — but it was all seen through a preppy lens with lots of splashes of Versace Casa (the brand's incredible line of homewares).

Moschino

980x (10)
Jeremy Scott is famous for bringing whimsical themes to his Moschino collections, but this season he was feeling darker. A mostly black-and-white bondage collection was...

Victoria Beckham Under Fire For Using Ultra-Thin Model

1200x600 (3)

Nearly three years have passed since Victoria Beckham came under fire for using sickly thin models on her Spring '16 New York Fashion Week runway, and it appears she hasn't learned from her mistake.

The poster girl for Beckham's Spring '18 eyewear is 29-year-old Lithuanian model Giedre Dukauskaite — she is featured wearing billowy garments of peach and beige in the designer's latest tweet: "Back to work! Start the year with new frames from the Spring Summer 2018 #VBEyewear collection inspired by 1970s retro classics and updated for a feathery-light, fresh and modern look."

The image is almost as shocking as Beckham's "feathery-light" word choice. Dukauskaite's head balances over her tall, waif-like frame — the oversized glasses are the last thing you notice.

Violet Chachki Closed Kinky Moschino Show In Devil Horns

1200x600 (2)

Jeremy Scott presented his Fall '18 menswear collection for Moschino at Milan Fashion Week last night, which he coyly described as "a tiny bit kinky" backstage. Mountains of latex, gimp masks and slogans like "Bottom," "Lick," "Thirsty," "Stud" and "Daddy" might be considered more than just a "tiny bit" kinky by your average person, but anything goes at a Moschino show.

To top it off, Drag Race winner Violet Chachki closed out the show in a conjoined tuxedo sans-shirt look and hair twisted up into devil horns.

Inside Portland’s Hottest Women-Run Tea Spot

1200x600 (1)
Last summer, when I traveled to Portland, Oregon for the first time, my friends insisted on taking me to Tea Bar, a specialty tea shop run by PDX native Erica Indira Swanson. The moment I walked into the NE Killingsworth Street location, I knew I'd found my home away from home. Inside, it never feels too crowded because there is just enough space between the wooden tables and chairs that are carefully placed around pots of large leafy plants. Paired with the white walls, concrete floors and natural table tops with fresh flowers on display, Tea Bar's atmosphere always feels open and inviting. Swanson likes to keep it minimal, which speaks volumes to her customers. In addition to being the CEO and founder...

Thom Browne Is Down To Dress Melania Trump

1200x600
American fashion designer Thom Browne said he'd be open to dressing Melania Trump, Page Six reports. "Look, I respect her as the First Lady," he said during a Q&A at the 92nd Street Y, "and it's something that I would respect." He added, "We all should respect the office, and it shouldn't become a political thing. The appreciation of what you do is what it should be. Dressing [Donald Trump] would be one thing. But with her, I think it's different." Browne has addressed the topic before; in an interview with Surface magazine last June, he said "the response that the first lady got from designers in regards to dressing her" was "unfortunate." Designers have been split over whether dressing Melania Trump constitutes as supporting the Trump administration since her...

Proenza Schouler Unveils Earthy SS18 Campaign

Proenza-Schouler-SS18-II-1440x630

Former Prada muse Sasha Pivovarova stars in the elegant new spread.

Barely a month after releasing a sexy campaign spread for Spring 2018, New York-based duo Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez reunited with photographer Tyrone LeBon to show off more from Proenza Schouler's SS18 collection. Trading sensuality for elegance, the spread features items from the designer label that were featured in Paris during their Haute Couture show last season. With a picturesque Long Island sky as the backdrop, model Sasha Pivovarova is draped in breezy pastel gowns and switches between sleek polished looks and wind-swept styles. In contrast with the blacks and whites of the previous spread, the airy colors in this collection call to mind a brisk refreshing spring that's just...
