Agent Provocateur’s Founder Is Launching Gender-Fluid Lingerie

Brett Lloyd

Look out for Les Girls Les Boys.

The founder of ultra-sexy (and sometimes racy) lingerie brand Agent Provocateur is moving on to something less kinky and more progressive: a gender-fluid underwear line. Serena Rees, who established Provocateur in 1994 (and eventually sold it off a decade ago), is launching Les Girls Les Boys—a lingerie label featuring intimates, underwear, and streetwear that isn't confined to one gender. The brand launches on September 1 with a debut collection of 100 pieces. The aesthetic is much more toned down than Agent Provocateur's, ditching pasties, lace bodices, and BDSM-esque straps for minimalist designs inspired by streetwear (hence, an appeal to millennials). There are graphic tees, comfy-looking sports bras and bodysuits, and sweats. Perhaps most notable...

5 Under-The-Radar Swedish Beauty Labels To Know, Just In Time For Stockholm Fashion Week

00-lede-swedish-bty-brands
Today marks the beginning of the Spring 2018 shows in Stockholm, and with it, a parade of editors, stylists, and models on the runways in elaborate ensembles. But before turning a blind eye to anything but the clothes, which, if anything like last season, will be minimal with a bit more funk and a bit more street, take a moment to consider that the Scandinavian city is already very well-established on the proverbial beauty map. Following in the footsteps of industry titans like Byredo’s glossy black-capped scents and Sachajuan’s minimalist shampoos, conditioners, and styling products, there is a school of lesser-known labels who are also helping to establish Sweden as a bona fide purveyor of all things beauty. Just look to Verso, whose retinol-based Super Facial...

Dakota Johnson Is The Ultimate Wardrobe Repeater—And It Starts With These Shoes

holding-dakota-johnsonc-celebrity-style
Dakota Johnson is famous for her statement footwear. The actress has an impressive collection that runs from Gucci fur loafers to Nike retro sneakers. Fitting, then, that she is diving feet first into the new season with a game-changing shoe that can go from day to night, summer to fall. Seen grabbing drinks on Tuesday in Los Angeles, Johnson chose a pair from The Row that has swiftly become one of her style staples. Johnson has worn the same slippers to grab coffee and catch a flight, but this going-out look felt particularly fresh. The multicolored beadwork was surprisingly versatile in color, and its slight heel toed the line between form and function. The rest of her ensemble had a similar sense of effortless cool. For starters, she...

Here’s How Designers Predicted This Summer’s Biggest Trends

This was the summer of throwback clothing. Trends of yesteryear, like dangerously low-slung jeans and tiny tube tops, were everywhere. While it’s easy enough to clock the recent resurgence of ’90s fashion phenomena on the streets, we spotted most of these looks on the Spring 2017 runways way in September of last year. Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, to Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen at The Rowseem to have inspired the aforementioned bumsters and bandeaux. Fanny packs, which were seen on the runways at Stella McCartney and Off-White, went from being associated with schleppy tourists to the It bags of the moment. Yeezy gave new meaning to spandex and inspired many to experiment with bike shorts and bodysuits, while Simon Porte Jacquemus made waves with his boldly big sun hat and French holiday–inspired...

For the second season in a row the New York fashion industry is coming together to stand up for what’s right. Today, the Council of Fashion Designers of America has announced that it will be launching an initiative during fashion week to support the ACLU. Titled “Fashion for ACLU,” the CFDA is hoping it will encourage its members to speak out against racism, bigotry, and hatred. “We want to be on the front line, not the sidelines, to boldly fight to protect our precious rights and freedoms, which has taken on a renewed urgency after the heart-wrenching events of Charlottesville,” Steven Kolb, President and CEO of the CFDA, said in a statement. “Our goal is to actively support concrete work that...

New York Fashion Week Attendees to Wear Blue Ribbons for ACLU

Like most other things in the wake of the 2016 election, accessories have gotten more political and this fall at New York Fashion Week you can expect to see even more of that. When designers show their collections for Spring 2018 next month, many of the attendees will be sporting blue ribbons in unison to raise awareness for the A.C.L.U.. The initiative, dubbed "Fashion for A.C.L.U.," is being organized by the Council of Fashion Designers of America in hopes to take a stance against racism and bigotry, which have become increasingly visible throughout Donald Trump's presidency. "We want to be on the front line, not the sidelines, to boldly fight to protect our precious rights and freedoms, which has taken on a renewed...

Paris Hilton Got Her Hair Braided, So She Must Be at Burning Man: The Best Instagrams to Emerge So Far

21224676_717335545135295_975858733345144832_n
The annual Burning Man festival, which sees the construction of a small tent-opolis in Nevada's Black Rock Desert each year, got underway Sunday, bringing out devotees of the bacchanal—self-described "Burners"—clad in the usual Barbie-meets-Mad Max fantasy looks. (After all, the festival even offers a custom tailoring table for any inevitable wardrobe malfunctions.) For the uninitiated, the festival, which was founded in 1986, has garnered a reputation as a hedonistic spectacle for prominent Hollywood and Silicon Valley figures, a weeklong spirit quest of sorts during which participants make "theme camps" in the temporary Black Rock City. (This year's themes include such heady titles as ")*(Aloha = H'Aloha," "404: Village Not Found," and ""#Octothorpe.") It has earned so much cult appeal that its attendees...

You Can Visit The Real-Life King’s Landing, But Locals Don’t Want You To

gettyimages-169340004-1504026710

Now that there’s probably more than a year until the next (and final) season of Game of Thrones comes out, you have time to check out some of the real-life locations for yourself. But if you want to visit the real-life King’s Landing, be wary, because every other Game of Thrones fan has had the same idea. Insane overcrowding has led the city of Dubrovnik, Croatia, to crack down on the number of tourists who can visit the area Cersei Lannister calls home.

According to the Telegraph, Dubrovnik Mayor Mato Franković is set to cap the number of people who can visit each day at just 4,000, which is half of UNESCO's recommendation. That’s because the pedestrian-only medieval section gets overcrowded with visitors.
