Fashion Week Mexico City Starts On a High Note With Kris Goyri’s El Ángel Show

01-lede-Kris-Goyri
At a roundabout on Paseo de la Reforma, one of Mexico City’s main thoroughfares, stands a gilded angel erected in 1910 as a monument commemorating the centennial of Mexico’s War of Independence. It is famously recognizable and singularly beautiful; El Ángel, as it is commonly called, can be seen in various reinterpretations throughout the metropolis—from taxi cab doors to government advertising. Yesterday, as part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Mexico City, one of the city’s most promising young creatives, Kris Goyri, showed his Fall 2017 collection around El Ángel. A dozen-deep crowd gathered around its northern curve to watch Goyri’s models cautiously step down the site’s stone stairs, decked out in ‘70s-era glamwear, rich in hue and artfully accessorized with excellent artisanal...

What’s Your Denim Identity?

SS17C-CHerrera-007 (1)

Denim may be a classic staple but the way we choose to wear it is hugely personal. Which denim diva will you be this season?
For Retro Queens
The seventies-style flare remains a favourite for its flattering cut and leg-lengthening properties. Keep your look on the right side of retro by avoiding embroidered or broderie anglaise tops. A simple silk shirt and metallic shoulder bag keep this outfit in the 21st century.

For Quirky Classicists
You like sharp silhouettes and quintessential shapes but with a bit of a twist, so a classic trench reimagined in denim fits your style sensibilities. Keep the rest of your outfit understated and let your denim trench be the showpiece.

landscape-1493034016-hbz-the-list-newsboy-00-index

Whether you refer to it as the newsboy, baker boy, cabbie, or page boy—there's no denying this topper is taking over. It girls and supermodels alike have adopted this staple of the early 20th century 'working class' and news boys, and turned it into the ultimate cool-girl must have on or off the red carpet.

1 The Icons

Leave it to the French, like Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, to make anything chic, even a hat was once traditionally worn by men.

2 The It Brits

The hat became synonymous with glamorous supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss in the '90s keeping an air of incognito.

See Pharrell’s New Chanel Gabrielle Bag Campaign

1493042517-screen-shot-2017-04-24-at-95924-am

Pharrell made big news in March when he was announced as the first man to model a Chanel bag in a campaign. Back in December, he walked the runway for the brand's Métiers d'Art show in Paris. Now, he's the star of a campaign film featuring the new Chanel Gabrielle bag.
In a short film released today, the musician approaches an empty concert hall and turns it into his playground. During one especially tense moment, he walks a very unsafe-looking beam hanging in mid-air and almost–ALMOST–drops his Chanel bag.

Terrifying.

Daytime Drama

810
“Don’t be boring and dress cute wherever you go. The only rule is not to blend in,” is an oft-spotted quote by Paris Hilton – the symbol of Noughties navel-gazing has been enjoying a renaissance of late among the Tumblr crowd with her slyly witty observations. It’s a sentiment that designers struggle with today, as they try to navigate a digital landscape which allows for any photo or reference to be easily accessed with the swipe of a thumb and catwalk pieces to be reproduced across the world even before the clothes have landed in-store. The most continuously innovative designers, such as Christopher Kane and Paco Rabanne creative director Julien Dossena, counteract internet-fuelled jadedness with clever ways to jar the brain and...

Laura Kim & Fernando Garcia Of Oscar De La Renta Know What Modern Brides Want

landscape-1493057918-hbz-odlr-bridal-00-index4
Inheriting the heritage, history and signature style of a brand as well known on the American (and worldwide) fashion stage as Oscar de la Renta requires equal parts humility and confidence; and it appears that after launching their own line, Monse, together after a brief departure from the ODLR atelier, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia have those traits in spades. The two recognize the pressures of designing in the shadow of one of fashion's greats, but it doesn't seem to hinder their process. In fact, it seems that working with Oscar for years prior to his passing and with a different customer via Monse has given them a clear understanding of what women want. "Girls want different things than they...

A Brief History Of PVC In Fashion

cqrfsn9shh7d4bwdf1pzwswf9
So fast-paced is the nature of fashion that to see something once considered the pinnacle of style relegated to irrelevance – or vice versa - is a commonplace occurrence. The connotations of polyvinyl chloride, though – referred to most commonly as either PVC or vinyl – have changed so drastically over the course of its existence, it’s a feat even by fashion’s standards. You’d think the man-made material had been patented long before 1913, given the journey it’s undertaken during its relatively short existence. Still, it’s one of the oldest synthetic materials; discovered by chance when vinyl chloride gas – which had been recently created - solidified upon exposure to sunlight. It is, perhaps, PVC’s place in fetishism – alongside its naturally-produced counterpart,...
