This Dolce & Gabbana Model Prorested The Brand On The Runway

hbz-raury-dg-index-1497984200
Miley Cyrus wasn't the only one who called out Dolce & Gabbana for its political views last weekend. A model who walked in the brand's show did too, right on the runway. Raury, a singer-songwriter and rapper who has collaborated with artists from Chance the Rapper to Wu-Tang Clan's RZA, used the catwalk as a platform to protest D&G for proudly dressing First Lady Melania Trump (and then later mocking critics with a "#Boycott Dolce & Gabbana" T-shirt). During the finale, he took off his shirt to reveal disapproving messages he had written on his torso: "Protest D&G," "Give me freedom" and "I am not your scapegoat." He held up his fist and stood front and center on the runway as other...

Selena Gomez’s First Coach Campaign Is Here

hbz-best-ads-coach-1497973629
Selena Gomez has officially made her debut as the new face of Coach. The singer stars in the brand's new campaign, where she's seen lounging in the rear leather seats of a vintage car. From the looks of the ads, this is not your average road trip. Gomez wears a Coach blush pink prairie dress and totes the brand's Swagger bag while radiating her classic Cool Girl vibe from the backseat (no neck pillows and headphones here). "Selena is a rebel and a romantic, a dreamer and a doer who boldly charts her own course," creative director Stuart Vevers said of the campaign star. The label really pulled out all the stops for this shoot: Steven Meisel photographed, Pat McGrath did...

An Hermès Laundromat Is Coming To New York

hbz-hermes-laundry-1497457725

There's really nothing chic about trekking to the laundromat, but Hermès is ready to put an end to that.
The French fashion house is launching a laundromat-inspired pop-up shop, Hermèsmatic, in New York on June 14th. Open to the public, the store will offer complimentary dip-dye services on the brand's silk scarves. Giving a major upgrade to the traditional laundromat, the shop features washing machines in Hermès' signature orange hue that perform the dip-dye service. There are also matching orange laundry baskets and Hermès logos plastered all over the walls—which make the idea of throwing a load of wash in sound pretty chic.

Dolce & Gabbana Mocks Melania Trump Criticism With This Slogan T-shirt

1497429901-dolce-gabbana-tshirt

Dolce & Gabbana couldn't care less if you're annoyed that its designer duo are dressing Melania Trump. In fact, the brand has released a bold slogan T-shirt with an ironic response to its detractors—it reads, simply, "boycott." In short, the brand is boycotting itself so you don't have to.
A spokesperson for the brand confirmed with Harper's BAZAAR UK this morning that the item was a direct reference to comments the label has received on social media regarding the First Lady. Trump has worn Dolce & Gabbana on numerous occasions, most recently last weekend when she officially moved into the White House wearing a sleeveless D&G top with Bally trousers.

The oft-photographed Sofia Sanchez de Betak, known by her nickname and Insta handle Chufy, has been making other designers’ clothes look good for years. Now it’s her turn. The Argentinian model and girl about town just launched her own brand, Chufy. “I've had the dream for many years, I cannot believe it's happening! I always loved shopping or getting inspiration from my travels, either buying fabrics during trips and making my own clothes when back at home, or finding great artisans or tailors around the world and getting my custom clothes as souvenirs,” she explains. In honor of her new line hitting retail, BAZAAR asked Sanchez de Batek to showcase her favorite piece in the collection, three ways. Her current...

Virgil Abloh Takes On a New Role As Desinger For IKEA

virgil04-2500x1667-1496865240
Fashion loves the high-low mix. Swedish furniture outlet Ikea's iconic royal blue “Frakta” bag has recently served as the accessorial inspiration for designers like Demna Gvasalia of Balenciaga, whose “Arena” bag coincidentally features a similar size and shape to Ikea’s. What you can buy at Ikea for 99 cents, you can buy at Balenciaga for $2,145. Recognizing its recent fad and marketable allure, Ikea called out Balenciaga for its copy-cat ways, but didn’t stop there. They have enlisted the creative vision of Off-White’s Virgil Abloh to collaborate on a new millennial-approved furniture collection. Abloh is also set to recreate the classic “Frakta” bag, adapting its original prototype into the more modern aesthetic of the off-white brand. Abloh joined Ikea at the Democratic...

The First DEmna-Designed US Balenciaga Store Is As Off The Wall As Expected

hbz-balenciaga-00-index-1496777556
Demna Gvasalia has proven that when the choice is given, he will go as far from the status fashion quo as possible. While many of Balenciaga’s retail locations still represent the minimal luxe, green marble aesthetic put in place by former creative director Alexander Wang and designer Ryan Korban, Balenciaga’s current man in charge is slowly putting his avant-garde stamp on the brand’s brick and mortar story. The first US locale to get the Demna treatment (after the Paris flagship) is the ritzy Madison Avenue store. While the location may be ritzy, Gvasalia’s main objective is presenting Balenciaga products in a straightforward manner without too many bells and whistles. The 1800-square foot space, which houses the men’s and women’s ready...

제목 없음
For nine years, PARK founders Kara Chomistek and Jessie Li have been organizing fashion shows and shopping events that promote and champion the creative talent in Alberta.

Let Jennifer Lawrence Give You a French Lesson In This New Dior Video

hbz-jennifer-lawrence-dior-film-1495208373
Remember those cheesy educational videos you watched in your high school foreign language class? Well, Jennifer Lawrence and Dior just made a really chic French 101 version that will have you wanting to head back to the classroom. The Oscar-winning actress stars in Dior's new Fabien Baron-directed short film, La Fille Américaine. In the kitschy black-and-white video, Lawrence wears several of the brand's Pre-Fall looks (including the ubiquitous We Should All Be Feminists t-shirt and J'Adore Dior slingbacks) while a narrator gives the French word for each item she wears and emotion she acts out. Unlike your French class back in high school, this short film teaches you more of the important phrases in life like "le texto" (texting) and "rouge à...
