Balenciaga Is Merging their Men’s And Women’s Collections

MON0465-1440x630

The times are changing at Balenciaga.

Balenciaga is the latest fashion house to join the recent trend of brands moving to dual-gender runway shows, taking the plunge like Burberry, Calvin Klein, Gucci, and Kenzo. Today, the Paris-based brand and creative director Demna Gvasalia announced that going forward, their men's and women's collections will be shown on the runway together, rather than appearing separately in men's and women's fashion month. The change will go into effect starting with the forthcoming Autumn/Winter 2018 line during Paris Fashion Week next March. And in addition to the combination of their lines, Balenciaga will also see an expansion for their men's fashions, which was only recently relaunched in June 2016, as they are set to debut a...

Christopher Bailey, Burberry's creative director, will exit at the end of 2018 after 17 years with the brand. He'll remain president and chief creative officer until he steps down from the board on March 31, 2018, and will guide CEO Marco Gobbetti through the transition until he fully parts ways with the label on December 31, 2018. “It has been the great privilege of my working life to be at Burberry, working alongside and learning from such an extraordinary group of people over the last 17 years," Bailey said in a statement. "It has been a truly inspiring place to work and the decision to leave was not an easy one." The designer, 46, joined Burberry in 2001 under former CEO Rose...

This Pink Faux-Fur Jacket Will Instantly Lift Your Mood

07-trends-3.nocrop.w910.h2147483647

Yesterday, Gucci announced it would be going fur-free beginning next spring, following in the footsteps of Net-a-Porter, which just a few months ago said that it would stop selling fur on its site. Fur may still be a thing this season, but it’s now more like to appear in synthetic form, often dyed in wild artificial colors.
At the Miu Miu show in Paris last spring, the entire venue was upholstered in a Muppet-y purple faux shag to complement the lineup of candy-colored faux-shag “eco-fur” coats. And in London last month, Burberry reimagined fuzzy outerwear in an immediately available-for-purchase hooded plush pink polyester version. The patch pockets, boxy shape, and signature Burberry-checked lining offer a modern take on your grandmother’s mink overcoat, and it’s just as squishably soft as it looks.

BURBERRY

What does Kate Moss know that we don't?

At London Fashion Week, one fact is as constant as a well-tailored trench coat: the Burberry show will always go viral. But even though Cara Delevingne and Naomi Campbell were broadcasting live from their phones—and the September 2017 collection went straight from the runway to Burberry.com's sales pages—some show secrets still remained cinched tight.

Iris Law’s Latest Burberry Campaign Is Here

Burberry is a heritage brand, and their latest ads confirm that to the British label, lineage is key.
They've rehired Iris Law, the daughter of Jude Law and Sadie Frost, for a second makeup campaign—one that shows off their newest contouring tools, including highlighters, lip crayons, and deeper shades for added shadow and depth.

Law's big brother, Rafferty, is a model for Dolce & Gabbana and Hugo Boss; her godmother, Kate Moss, is a model for everybody because she's legendary AF. And the London native is in good company, with other young celebébés like Lily-Rose Depp, Selah Marley, and Willow Smith scoring major brand campaigns (and massive Instagram followings).

6 Designers Who Brought Real Diversity to London Fashion Week

londonfashionweek
London fashion week stood as proof that this season has been all about tearing down walls in model casting. Protests have become de rigeur in recent months, and the European shows kicked off with a group of mature models marching against ageism. They carried signs with messages like “Fashion Has No Age Limits” or “Grow Up LFW.” We witnessed an immediate reaction to that movement this week, with designers like Simone Rocha—who included models of all ages (some even 70-plus). Racial diversity on the runways has historically been less of a challenge in vibrant, multicultural London. And this season, labels like Burberry really rose to the challenge of offering a true representation of ethnicities with its models. Check out our diversity...

You Will Be Able to Buy Burberry’s Intricate, Over-the-Top Finale Capes

21-burberry-capes-1.w710.h473

Last night’s Burberry show ended with a spectacular finale walk that featured intricate capes layered over each look. Drawing from the label’s decidedly British heritage, the 79 different creations referenced materials or aspects of prior collections. There were feathers that floated and bounced in the air while others dripped with pearls. Another appeared to made from see-through paillettes, except it turned out to be constructed from monocles. One was even inspired by solid metal, as if it were a modern-day spin on a knight’s armor. The most spectacular pieces, though, were the hoods: a rhinestone style and a sparkling chain-mail creation were among the most deliciously over-the-top designs.

7 Beauty Secrets I Learned From Iris Law

1484327109-screen-shot-2017-01-13-at-115642-am
From Lily-Rose Depp to Brooklyn Beckham, being the child of famous (and genetically blessed) parents often leads to a modeling contract. The latest addition to the club? 16-year-old Iris Law, daughter of Jude Law and Sadie Frost. She's not the family's first model, either–before getting into acting, Frost started out as a model, while Iris's 20-year-old brother Rafferty Law just starred in Dolce & Gabbana's spring 2017 campaign (oh, and Kate Moss is her godmother). Iris herself is starting out with a bang–she just landed her first major beauty campaign as the face of Burberry's new Liquid Lip Velvet collection. In the ads, she wears her current favorite among the line of 14 matte cream colors, Oxblood, a "more shocking" deep...
