Rihanna Is The First To Step Out In Tom Ford ‘s Newest Collection

Getty

As expected, she looks amazing.

When you're a modern fashion icon like Rihanna, you don't wait months to wear new collections after they hit the runway—you wait weeks. Sometimes, even days.The singer/designer/beauty mogul recently wore a look from Off-White's Princess Diana collection (modeled by Kaia Gerber) and Saint Laurent's head-turning fur boots not long after they debuted at Paris Fashion Week. Now, she can add Tom Ford's Spring 2018 collection to that list.
Bad Gal Riri sported a full look by the designer today in NYC, consisting of a denim jacket, miniskirt, and knee-high white-tipped boots. She accessorized with yellow-tinted sunglasses and diamond-encrusted jewelry by Chopard.

The Best Of What’s New This Fall

DAN & CORINA LECCA

Your wish list calls for double denim, timeless trenches, and floral fantasies.

As an intelligent, fashion literate woman of style, you’ve moved beyond trends. Trends are the enemy of longevity; the death of individuality. Trends, as you have read repeatedly, are over, although you recognize that this may be a question of semantics. Switch the word “trends” for “updates” or “evolution” or “refreshers,” and trends start to seem not only relevant but vital. Also, you cannot help observing that without trends there is no momentum, no moving forward (even if sometimes the shift seems to be back to a previous era). So like a tech junkie hovering over her cell phone on a de-connectivity retreat or a Wall Street wolf prowling...

Denim Production Is Incredibly Wasteful. Thses Eco-Friendly Jeans Are Breaking The Cycle

23750010-1505917312
Jeans. We all love and own multiple pairs of them. But it’s no secret that fashion remains one of society’s most environmentally destructive industries due to the volume and frequency at which we consume and throw away garments. To keep up with this demand, most clothing companies aim to produce as much as possible for as little money as possible—and that often comes at the expense of nature. Denim manufacturing is notoriously wasteful. It takes a hell of a lot more water than you think to make a pair of jeans: approximately 1,500 gallons to grow the cotton alone, notwithstanding the gallons used for achieving the perfect rinse in the finishing process. Luckily, brands like AYR are starting to break the cycle. Coinciding with...

There’s a charming, girl-next-door quality to La La Anthony’s style, a look she’s quietly cultivated since her days on MTV in the early aughts. Though we’re now more used to seeing her at glamorous red carpet events such as the Met Ball, she’s just as chic in a simple T-shirt and jeans. It’s why the VJ turned actress’s first foray into fashion is something of a perfect fit: a capsule collection of denim, all retailing under $120. “Denim is a universal language in clothing,” says Anthony of her debut collection, which includes five jean styles as well as a selection of casual hoodies and tops. “We go from size 0 to 24, which is amazing because we can cater to all body...

How to Shop the Best Vintage Denim on Instagram

Photographed by Franco Rubartelli, Vogue, January 15, 1968

Finding good vintage denim is difficult—finding that perfect pair online is even harder. Or at least it was until a new wave of vintage denim dealers started selling their stock on Instagram. Now, it’s possible to look through someone’s personal denim archive—perhaps physically located across the country—and send a direct message to the dealer to snag a unique piece on the spot. Thanks to near-daily updates, the hunt can become addicting, and it’s a race to write in before the caption changes to sold. Here, seven Instagram accounts that are changing the vintage denim game—stumbling across that one-off denim jacket has never been easier.

Factory Girl Dani Stahl Visits Levi’s Custom Tailor Shop In Brooklyn

WORKING WITH JILL GUENZA AND LUKE GOOD TO DESIGN THE JACKET OF MY DREAMS. PHOTOGRAPHED BY JONATHAN GRASSI.

All hail the jean queen!

The following feature appears in the August 2017 issue of NYLON. Fashion changes every season, but the one thing I can always count on being there is denim. It may get cropped, hemmed, rolled, or dyed (you name it, and it’s been done), but denim never goes away. And no one understands denim quite like Levi Strauss & Co. I never get rid of any of my old Levi’s—the OG denim brand will always have a place in my closet, with pieces folded in multiple tall stacks that will fall over like a Jenga game if I’m not careful. Need further proof that I’m Levi’s obsessed? This is my third Factory Girl story with them, which I consider...

Minimal basics are the building blocks at Everlane. You might think that after the brand launched in 2011 with high-quality, sustainably made, low-cost tees, denim would’ve been the next logical step. But think again. In the seven years since its founding, Everlane has cracked the code on well-made leather bags, shoes, knits, pants, blouses, and dresses. Denim has remained the white whale of the essentials empire. Now that’s changing. On September 7, after two years of research and design, Everlane will launch its first styles of jeans. Retailing at $68 a pair, they’re sustainably made from 2 percent stretch Japanese denim at Saitex factory in Vietnam. “We launched with...

Are You Ready To Wear Low-Rise Jeans Again?

For seasons, flattering high-waisted jeans in their many incarnations – skinny, Mom, boyfriend, kickflare – have ruled our off-duty wardrobes. But in the latest fashion casualty of Noughties nostalgia, the ultra low-rise jean appears to be making an unwelcome comeback.
Cast your mind back to the early 2000s when Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Rihanna's after-dark uniforms consisted of hip-hugging bootleg jeans teamed with extreme crop tops and pointed kitten heels.
If not, we're sure you can recall the moment Keira Knightley showed off her entire torso at a Pirates of the Caribbean movie premiere in a pair of low-slung, dark-hued jeans and the tiniest off-the-shoulder top we'd ever seen. It fast became one of the most iconic fashion moments of the decade.
