What’s Up Down Under? 5 Takeaways From Australian Fashion Week

double_rainbouu_45
Australian Fashion Week has the honor of being one of the more remote international fashion weeks. That reality has its undeniable pros and cons. In the pro column is Australian fashion’s covetable, understated sense of ease, showcased during the Resort 2018 shows at Dion Lee, Christopher Esber, Akira, Albus Lumen, and Bianca Spender. That unfussy coolness is the country’s best export and also its best marketing technique—as a grouchy New Yorker, walking through the streets of tan, tall, healthy people in cool slouchy clothes was enough to make a me want to ditch boots, and maybe shoes all together, for a beach-going lifestyle, flip-flops, and hip-slung trousers. That might be why my suitcase returning was so much heavier. . ....

1 A T-Shirt Is Timeless
Never underestimate the power of a t-shirt. Palermo often dresses up a basic white tee by tucking it into a midi skirt and styling with heels for a fresh take on the classic staple.

2 Double-Up On Denim
Take the Canadian tuxedo to new, elevated lengths with a denim pencil skirt and chambray button-down.

Is This The Most Flattering Silhouette For Women?

Screen-Shot-2017-05-25-at-15.40.47

A paperbag waist is an elegant one. Sitting at the hip with a loose bow neatly tied at the waist, a tapered trouser creates a flattering, hourglass figure while the wide-leg lengthens the silhouette. To avoid looking frumpy, tuck a graphic tee or smart shirt into the waist and wear a heeled shoe to further elevate the long and lean frame.

Why Andy Warhol Was Obsessed With His Cartier Wristwatch

366306
Louis Cartier designed the Tank watch in 1917, inspired by the Renault tanks that the French jeweller saw in use on the Western Front during World War One. Its lugs – the part of the case joined to the strap – blend seamlessly into the edges of flat vertical ‘brancards’, providing the wristwatch with a uniquely minimalist and clean aesthetic. Naturally, such considered design garnered popular appeal with some of the chicest figureheads throughout history who possessed a particular reverence for beautiful objects. In 1979, Cartier threw a party in New York with a guestlist that read as a ‘who’s who’ of the era’s socialite milieu. Truman Capote, wearing a black beret to conceal a recent hair transplant, rubbed shoulders with...

Jason Wu Just Says No To Four Seasons a Year, Will Combine Resort And Spring In September

01-lede-jason
Let’s hand it to Jason Wu for his honesty. In an interview about his plan to skip a Resort presentation and consolidate that pre-collection with the Spring one he’ll show in September, he admitted, “it’s really exhausting to present four times a year, it’s time to savor a little bit more.” Brands across the spectrum are rethinking a collection system that has sped up in response to the almost non-stop deliveries of fast fashion companies. Wu isn’t the first designer to reorganize his approach to the runway, but he might be the most candid. Earlier this year, Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez announced they’ll present their pre-Spring and Spring collections together in Paris during couture week in July, in...

Rihanna Wears a Canadian Tuxedo With a Knee-Length Crotch

gallery-1495637185-spl1506532-006
Street style icon Rihanna was photographed en route to a meeting in New York City yesterday, wearing a high-fashion oversized Canadian tuxedo. The crotch on it appears to go down to her knees: The look seemingly comes from designer Matthew Adams Dolan, a Parsons MFA Fashion Design and Society alum (RiRi just attended the school's benefit the night before). Rihanna, who called Dolan her "boo" at the benefit, told ELLE.com that she purposefully tries to wear clothes from experimental young talent. "I look for originality," she said. "I look for a creative, clever perspective. I love that. I love just seeing the mind of someone reflected onto a piece of clothing. It says a lot about what's going on in their...

7 New Brands I Fell In Love With at Australia Fashion Week

landscape-1495662388-el-052417-runwaymodelscomp

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to travel to Sydney for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia. In between attending shows put on by Australian heavy hitter brands like Dion Lee and Ellery and visiting the zoo (life goal), I also had the opportunity to suss out the new-new coming from Down Under. Here are seven brands I learned about and fell in love with while I was there.
