placeholder_landscape-1487358673-zodiac-outfits

It's only been a few days since the conclusion of NYFW, but that's just soon enough to start thinking about what new, exciting stuff you're going to wear from now on. To help, we've collided the best trends (colored velvet!) with the best diversion (horoscopes!) for the simplest possible decision-making. Though feel free to lift from the other signs—we hear Scorpios have it pretty good.

Aries Red is your power color, but it's also one of *the* colors of the season (it's kind of a tossup with this one, but good thing they look great together). Try one of the many dresses that walked the runway, such as this turtleneck number from Victoria Beckham or Brock Collection's swoon-y...

Nordstrom Now Selling Up-And-Coming Brands Like Eckhaus Latta SHARE

z
Everybody was impressed when Nordstrom finally kicked Ivanka Trump’s eponymous line to the curb, but this is arguably even better. The department store chain just announced the launch of SPACE LAB, a shop-in-shop that carries up-and-coming designers including Eric Schlösberg, Eckhaus Latta, Dilara Findikoglu, A.W.A.K.E, and Vejas. The lines are currently available in stores in Seattle, Chicago, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Toronto and online. But for Nordstrom, it’s about more than just selling their wares. A press release on the company’s blog describes SPACE LAB as a “fashion incubator … a way to nurture them and stand by them as their careers make important pivots.” For edgy, directional brands that often have trouble making connections with the mainstream department stores responsible for turning little-known...

Mary Katrantzou’s Stunning Fall 2017 Collection Was Inspired by Disney’s Fantasia

marykatrantzou
When it comes to making far-out prints look super chic, you can always count on Mary Katrantzou. The Greece-born, London-based designer was trained in textile engineering, and has been experimenting with surreal, digitized motifs since she was a still student at Central Saint Martins over ten years ago. For her fall 2017 collection, she took her signature prints to another level, using scenes and characters from Disney’s Fantasia on an array of dreamy cocktail dresses, luxe evening coats, and beautiful double-breasted jackets that were unveiled on the runway at London fashion week. The 1940 classic, you’ll probably remember, is comprised of several wondrous animated vignettes set to classical music. Katrantzou took inspiration from the fifth vignette in Fantasia, titled "Pastoral Symphony"...

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.

LFW Trend: Pockets

1020 (1)

ARE you ready for the statement pocket? No longer a slave to function, the repository for keys, chewing gum or lipsticks, or even a facilitator of the nonchalant pose, pockets are suddenly back in the spotlight at London Fashion Week. Giant round pouches hid within the folds of ladylike dresses, imbuing the models with a certain elegant slouch, while utility-style squares delineated powdery coats at Simone Rocha. JW Anderson, ever innovative, proposed the necklace-cum-pocket, cheekily placing them over breasts on jerseys and satins. Louise Trotter at Joseph gave them an abstract jollity. And at Christopher Kane, they sprouted euphorically from evening dresses, decorated with three-dimensional sequinned corsages of flowers. The question now is: which pocket will you pick?
