Five Fantasy Fashion Holidays

366645
The fashion calendar dictates that Autumn/Winter collections hit stores in the deep summer months, leaving plenty of opportunity for those coveted new styles to work their way into your suitcase this holiday season. With July just around the corner, that time has almost come, and whilst chunky knitwear and heavyweight fabrications aren’t necessarily suitable for that beach break in Alicante, there will always be pieces that are – look no further than Balenciaga’s skimpy floral A/W17 dresses as a case in point. With this in mind, we turned to this season’s runways to picture where the muses behind the collections might have travelled for their own holidays. From Raf Simons’ debut at Calvin Klein, where the Belgian designer paid homage to the...

366586
“Increasingly, consumers want pictures over words,” Ian Rogers, chief digital officer of luxury conglomerate LVMH told The New York Times earlier this month. Rogers, who joined from Apple 18 months ago, has transformed the way the Parisian powerhouse approaches its digital strategy and in particular the way it navigates an ever expanding network of luxury e-commerce sites. And today a new online destination called 24 Sèvres, the brainchild of Rogers, has opened its virtual doors to shoppers worldwide. Over 68 French and international brands are now available to buy at the click of a mouse – some of which were previously impossible to purchase online, such as Dior and Louis Vuitton. Alongside its strong aesthetic identity, 24 Sèvres taps into a desire for constant connectivity...

Charlie Casely-Hayford Does Fine Tailoring for TOPMAN

topman_01-1

In the countdown to LFW Men’s, SLEEK Magazine spoke with Charlie Casely-Hayford to discuss his exciting venture into the high street to deliver bespoke tailoring for Topman.

The Fine Tailoring collaboration is a 10-piece collection that is split into four different accessible categories: work, wedding, weekend and occasion. “When we first sat down our primary goal was to make a more elevated offering to the mainline Topman suiting collection,” says Charlie. “It’s slightly more mature, but still very much rooted in youth culture.”

All the Fashion Girls Will Be Shopping on This New Parisian Website

You might as well go ahead and bookmark 24 Sèvres. It's the new shopping website by LVMH, and we're predicting that it's going to be a go-to for street-style stars. If you're not familiar with LVMH, the luxury goods company owns brands across several categories, from wine to cosmetics. But most importantly, it's home to some of our favorite fashion houses that are always ahead of the trends—think Louis Vuitton, Dior, Givenchy, and Fendi. This is a major move, especially since several prestigious labels like Céline don't even have online shopping on their websites. 24 Sèvres will carry over 150 lust-worthy brands, including Prada, Gucci, and Maison Margiela. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait until June 6 to see exactly what will be...

Raf Simons’ Wearable Works of Art

365823
Raf Simons x Robert Mapplethorpe T-Shirt 100% cotton In 1985, Robert Mapplethorpe took a photograph of Talking Heads frontman David Byrne. In it, Byrne wears a white granddad-collar shirt and a black suit, and poses at a 45-degree angle with his dark brown eyes fixed on the lens of the camera. It’s striking and quietly beautiful. 31 years later this image, among others by Mapplethorpe, was transposed onto a T-shirt featured in Raf Simons’ S/S17 collection. In this offering, which was presented at New York Fashion Week in January, the Belgian designer adopted a curatorial approach, selecting photographs of flowers, portraits of celebrities and portrayals of black male nudes, and bringing them into his own context by printing them onto clothes. What drove Simons to collaborate with...
