Alexander Wang To Leave New York Fashion Week

gettyimages-603583086-1516200068
The mass exodus of designers leaving New York Fashion Week isn't slowing down anytime soon, and now the CFDA-helmed week is losing one of its biggest designers: Alexander Wang. As WWD reports, the designer is opting out of the traditional NYFW calendar following the Fall 2018 shows this February. Moving forward, Wang will instead present his collections in June and December. "Our customer will be better served through the new system. The innovative approach reframes product on the month that it ships, rather than the outdated labels of ‘resort’ or ‘pre-fall,’ giving our customers more relevant and consistent merchandise throughout the year," Lisa Gersh, CEO of Alexander Wang, told WWD. Under the new format, collections shown in June will hit stores between October and March, while...

Kirna Zabête Goes To Palm Beach

056-r-kirna-zabete-preview-1516120229

Kirna Zabête has been a long-time NYC retail mainstay—holding court in SoHo for 18 years. Now the Beth Buccini-founded boutique is getting new digs in Palm Beach, Florida at The Royal Poinciana Plaza, its fourth location. The preppy locale will serve as the newest backdrop for Kirna Zabête’s bold ready to wear and accessories from designers both big and small. The Steven Gambrel of SR Gambrel designed space has its own personality, but maintains KZ design hallmarks like black and white flooring, pink accents, a red cash wrap and sprawling chandeliers. Go inside the new space and get the low down on how Kirna Zabête goes to Florida from Buccini.

Designing the menswear for the Parisian house since 2011, Thursday will see his final show

While 2017 saw the departure of two long-standing creative directors from fashion houses – Phoebe Philofrom Céline after 10 years and Christopher Bailey from Burberry after 17 – the latest announcement is that Kim Jones will be leaving his role as men’s artistic director at Louis Vuitton. Designing for the Parisian house since 2011, Jones’s collections have continued to push the travel aesthetic that is at the core of the label, taking inspiration from his trips to Japan, Africa and India. Not to mention enlisting the likes of the Chapman Brothers, and more recently the industry-shaking collab with Supreme. It has yet to be announced who will be replacing Jones following his final collection tomorrow at PFW. It is...

Winning The Woolmark Prize Is a Game-Changer For Indian Designer Ruchika Sachdeva

iwp-2017-18-final-winner-bodice-04-1515776431
When you're an up-and-coming fashion designer gaining recognition can be difficult. Imagine being based in New Delhi, India to boot and you've got the plight of Bodicedesigner Ruchika Sachdeva. “You can be doing something so beautiful but nobody knows about it,” says Sachdeva. But thanks to the International Woolmark Prize things are about to change for the womenswear designer. Since 1953, the International Woolmark Prize has been granted to fashion designers in recognition of their work with wool (past recipients including Karl Lagerfeld, Yves Saint Laurent, and Gabriela Hearst in 2017.) This year, participants from more than sixty countries submitted their merino wool designs, but it was Bodice that took home the ultimate prize over fellow finalists KYE, Harman Grubiša, Le Kilt, David Laport,...

The New Flare

It gets the Parisian girl seal of approval—a simple cropped flare in a light wash is easy like Sunday morning at the cafe.

Marc Jacobs Spring 2018 Ad Campaign

Marc-Jacobs-spring-2018-ad-campaign-the-impression-04
The era of self-reflection is in the air this season as many a creative director have been turning inward to address the challenges outward. But more on that with our spring The Impression print issue. For Marc Jacobs Spring 2018 ad campaign Jacobs has teamed again with longtime lensman collaborator Steven Meisel to play with the idea of light, self refection, perverse proportion, and color. The result is one of the strongest campaigns of the season that blends reality with illusion. The artist effort feels like an updated version of “The Mirror of Venus” by Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones with maidens entranced by a reflective pool in visual conceit. Models Aube Jolicoeur, Cristina Piccone, Fran Summers, Léa Julian, Remington Williams, Sophie Martynova, and Sveta Black play the maidens while the unsung hero...

This Brooklyn Couple Turned Their Save The Date Into a Major Fashion Moment

Last week, designer Raul Lopez took to Instagram with a couple style moment so major it literally stopped us mid-scroll. Was this a hint of Lopez’s upcoming collection? Some wild new bridal-inspired fashion editorial, perhaps? Turns out, it was something far more intimate: the save the date for the upcoming wedding of Brooklyn couple Cynthia Cervantes and Travis Gumbs, who are set to tie the knot this summer in Michoacán, Mexico. Partners in both work—Gumbs is a cofounder of the menswear blog Street Etiquette, while Cervantes is a producer who has worked with Lopez on his label, Luar, and Dover Street Market—and life, the pair turned the occasion into a true fashion collaboration. “We wanted to capture this feeling of old-school, traditional wedding portraiture,”...
