Nike Takes a Stance for a New Femininity

SLEEK-X-NIKE_01.jpeg-copy-800x1200
“I wish us women would stick together more often and overcome the constant jealousy that the male-dominated world has taught us to feel for each other” – Fatma Morgan Ata Joan Benoit Samuelson was the first woman to ever win the women’s marathon in the olympics, which she did wearing a pair of Nike Cortez sneakers. Since then the shoe has been associated with strong female role models who challenged and redefined societal expectations towards women. Like Samuelson did at the olympic games in 1984, strong women from all around the world are constantly redefining femininity today. To honour them, Nike recently invited photographer Lisa Wassmann and multimedia artist Fatma Morgan Ata to create artworks that represented their own interpretation of new femininity....

Has there been a single knock against Valentino since Pierpaolo Piccioli became the solo creative director last year? I can’t think of one thing.

His gorgeously-monastic-yet-electrically-colored gowns have been held up as an example of a return to propriety on the red carpet. The shows have been consistently moving. Celebrities are practically pounding on the door to borrow those dresses. It’s all just so pretty and proper these days at Valentino.

So what is Piccioli to do next? Well, if you had been at the Valentino resort show on Tuesday morning in New York, you would have been shocked, for Piccioli went casual—extremely casual. As in, shower shoes and track suits, some rendered in his signature pink-and-red color...

Illustrator Angelica Hicks On Her Graffiti Gucci Geeks

lede-angelica
Since Alessandro Michele’s takeover of Gucci in 2015, the brand has applied his playful spirit to a vast array of projects beyond its runway shows. The house has made memes and even commissioned graffiti. Its latest endeavor marries both concepts with the help of artist and Instagram meme lord Angelica Hicks. Together, Gucci and Hicks have unveiled a massive wall art project in New York and Milan; Hicks’s #GucciGeeks will also appear on a limited edition run of tees. “Seeing my illustration on such a large scale, akin to a billboard, is insane,” Hicks wrote Vogue over email. The project follows a similar rollout as that with artist Jayde Fish in 2016. “Nearly a year ago I was contacted by Gucci,...

Three Instagram Accounts Dedicated to Body Parts

366150

Instagram has proven time and time again to be the perfect platform for documenting the delicious minutiae of everyday life. This, of course, extends to everything – including the details of the human body. The three accounts we present today are far more chic and subtle than #abs or #legday and the like, though; consider them a reminder of our natural selves, and the ceaseless inspiration that bodyparts can provide.

@girlspreading You’ve likely heard of ‘manspreading’ by now, whereby men sit with their legs spaced far apart, much of the time whilst sat on public transport and to the annoyance of fellow passengers. But is this trait exclusive to men? @girlspreading says no. “Why keep those knees...

Why Lindsay Lohan Is Back On Our Fashion Radar

Sartorially, personally and professionally, Lindsay Lohan has had a checkered past. But if the above shot of her at Cannes last week is anything to go by, she’s certainly got her wardrobe in order, putting herself firmly back on the fashion landscape. This slightly sixties-style two-piece looks utterly fresh and modern. It showcases her perfect pins and her gorgeous freckled skin beautifully. But the high neckline and flared cut of the top keep enough hidden to create the perfect balance between conceal and reveal. If this was a bodycon dress, it wouldn’t work. I love the graphic print. It references the modish style of the sixties, and the two raspberry red vertical panels elongate her silhouette. The studded shoes feel...
