And Just Like That, Balenciaga Is Back

04-balenciaga-lede.w1200.h630
Three years ago, Demna Gvasalia realized he was starting to hate his job. He was a designer at Louis­ Vuitton, barely in his 30s, feeding the beast of perhaps the most profitable luxury brand in the world. Not that Gvasalia, who grew up along the Black Sea in the former Soviet republic of Georgia, didn’t count himself lucky. He got to work with Marc Jacobs and then his successor, Nicolas Ghesquière, both creative without bounds. And Gvasalia loved having access to amazingly skilled artisans. That’s why he got into fashion in the first place — he was fascinated by how clothes were constructed. But he found himself questioning the whole structure of the business: The big-concept shows intended to reap publicity and sell...

The Cut Tries Uniform Dressing With Uniqlo’s Boiler Suit

07-jumpsuits-lede.w1777.h1181

Jumpsuits are hard to pull off, both literally and figuratively: It's tough to find one that fits properly and doesn't make bathroom runs into an ordeal. So when the Inès de la Fressange for Uniqlo collection came out with a navy-blue boiler suit, we were all a little skeptical. But also intrigued — Uniqlo's done a great job of capturing Inès de la Fressange's classic Frenchwoman chic, and who doesn't want to look like a Parisian motorcycle technician? So five of the Cut's staff, all women with different tastes and body types, decided to take the suit for a spin. Scroll down to see how it went.

For some, the transition from winter to spring is easy. Out with the chunky winter coat and in with all those floaty fabrics, denim dresses and light knits. For others, ditching what has become a successful wardrobe, carefully curated over the past few months, is no easy task. Luckily, with the great British weather only gradually warming, most of your classic staples will do just fine when mixed-in with a few new-season buys. There’s plenty of reason to invest in the new – hello silky slip dresses and slip-on loafers – while hardworking heroes should be embraced, and the rest packed away until the cooler weather returns. Here’s our guide to mastering transitional dressing.   Do experiment with colour Where once was a...

Everyone Is Wearing Vêtements Denim at Fashion Week

landscape-1457361335-vetements

Without fail, every fashion show season throws up an It item, something that's spotted on every major street style star out there.
This time it's Vêtements denim. We've seen them on everyone from Miroslava Duma to Camille Charriere.
What's so special about these jeans, noticeable for their raw, stepped hems?

Well, each pair is unique and takes six hours to create by hand at the brand's Paris atelier. "The jeans are special as they are actually two pairs of vintage jeans that the design team sourced and reconstructed together," says Natalie Kingham, buying director at MatchesFashion.com. "They removed the pockets and the dark patches on the rear give the illusion of lifting the buttocks so they are very flattering." Unfortunately, uniqueness comes with...

How Street Style Has Changed the Way Models Dress

model-street-style-feat
Stick around long enough after a fashion show has ended and you’ll see the rush of models emerge from backstage in their street clothes. Outside, there will invariably be a group of photographers and journalists hovering like fans around a stage door on Broadway, ready to snap pictures and jot down notes on the brands the girls are wearing. Certain models will inspire a mob scene: the Karlies, Kendalls, and Gigis, sure, but also girls like Soo Joo Park and Hanne Gaby Odiele who dress—and pose—with personality. Clearly, we care about how models dress—maybe now more than ever before. The phrase “model off duty” entered the fashion lexicon in 2006, when Alexander Wang used it—or M.O.D. for short—to describe his slouchy, downtown...

15 Unexpected Layering Ideas to Steal from Street Style Stars

layering-street-style-outfit-ideas-fall-2016-fashion-week

The February/March Fashion Month season may not be the most pleasant for those who have to schlep between shows in inclement weather, but in terms of street-style inspiration, it does make for a great place to find layering ideas to get you through those awkward months between full-fledged winter and sunny spring. So far, we’ve spotted dresses over pants, short sleeves over long, and thermal turtlenecks aplenty—not to mention a ton of color and texture combos we’ll be cribbing at home.

5 Pairs Of Jeans That Hide Every Bad Thing/Accentuate Every Good Thing

landscape-1456954796-mc-jeans

Buying jeans is one of the hardest things known to man, up there with solving the Beal Conjecture and folding a fitted sheet neatly. This is mostly because a lot can go wrong, and it takes a lot of factors for it to go right. But we've helped to narrow it down. Here, denim to minimize your "problem" areas and options to define your best assets. And we do mean assets.

Hides Your Tummy
Low-rise jeans have the propensity to create muffin tops where they don't even exist. Go for a high-rise to avoid the problem altogether, and hide anything in that midsection you're not particularly keen on.

Ashley Graham Thanks You For Talking Smack About Her Waistline

landscape-1457103807-elle-ashley-index
In between shooting a Sports Illustrated cover, covering the Oscars for E! News, launching a new bra line, fitness wear line, and dress collection for Dressbarn, Ashley Graham also managed to squeeze in a little cameo at Paris Fashion Week. When I spotted the model backstage at the H&M Studio show minutes before she walked the runway with a bevy of other major models, I snagged a few minutes with her to talk about the latest developments in her insanely busy life. SINCE WE LAST TALKED―LIKE A MONTH AGO!―YOU'VE HAD SOME MAJOR MOMENTS. Remember? I was like "I have something!" But I didn't know about the cover. I couldn't tell you I was in S.I., but I didn't even know that I was on...
