New Spring, a project by Studio Swine and COS This year, as has been the case for many years, Miami Art Week (Art Basel Miami Beach, Design Miami and countless other satellite fairs, shows, parties, panels and more) as featured numerous projects either sponsored by, or explicitly created in conjunction with, brands alongside the booths, shows and installations by galleries or individual artists. Fashion brands, in particular, were well represented: Prada tapped Carsten Höller to create a three-day art installation-cum-pop-up club (two clubs to be exact!). Zara collaborated on a mural at the Wynwood Walls created by artist Tavar Zawacki. And COS teamed up with London-based Studio Swine on the second iteration of the art/architecture/design duo's New Spring installation (the first debuted in Milan during Salone...

Kim Kardashian’s Kid’s Line Accused Of Plagiarism

1200x600

Kim Kardashian's children's line, The Kids Supply, is being accused of plagiarizing two of its latest designs, the "Rei Bomber" and the "Demna dress," from COMME Des GARÇONS and Vetements respectively.

The label was called out by Diet Prada, an Instagram account that points out similarities (and occasionally outright rip-offs) of designs in fashion.

@kimkardashian !  Just when we thought you may have rocked the glitter better than Bey, you had to go and rip an extremely limited edition @commedesgarcons x Kosho & Co souvenir jacket for your @thekidssupply line AND that Tay Swift @vetements_official dress you knocked for North.  Great message for the little ones! #kimdesgarcons #letreiknow #letdemnaknow #kimkardashian #thekidssupply #souvenirjacket #sukajan #vetements #commedesgarcons #demnagvasalia #reikawakubo #streetwear #copyat #knockoff #dietprada #sequins #sparkle #kkw Diet Prada ™(@diet_prada)님의 공유 게시물님,...

Chanel Pre-Fall 2018 show@chanelofficial

The Parisian house presented its nautical Pre-Fall collection in Hamburg last night

On its travels around the globe for its Resort and Pre-Fall Métiers d’Art collections, Chanel has presented shows in Texas, Cuba, Salzburg and Dubai – but never in Karl Lagerfeld’s hometown of Hamburg. That all changed last night when the Parisian house staged its Pre-Fall 2018 collection there as a homecoming for the German designer. Here’s what went down at the show.

IT TOOK PLACE IN AN OPERA HOUSE Taking place in the Great Concert Hall of the Elbphilharmonie – a newly built structure in the city – guests took their seats in the multi-tiered space. The models walked around the entire venue before gathering in the pit next to the orchestra...

Rihanna Wears $1,340 Gucci Socks, As One Does

hbz-rihanna-gucci-socks-1512601275

Are your socks even designer?

If you've ever scoffed at the idea of getting socks for Christmas, allow Rihanna to introduce you to the Gucci pair you never knew you needed.
Putting all of our sad, mismatched socks to shame, Bad Gal Riri showed off her new white crystal Gucci socks, which retail for a casual $1,340, on Instagram. The Gucci logo socks first made their debut at the fashion house's Resort 2018 show in Milan. And thanks to the incredible superpowers of Rihanna, now even the most frugal of shoppers could probably justify shelling out a thousand dollars for a single pair of socks.
