Gucci To Off-White, Street To Sequins—And The Return Of The Fanny Pack: What Sold In 2017?

00-story-image
When Vogue asked five online powerhouses about what sold in 2017, there was confirmation of what we expected—Alessandro Michele is still the King Midas of Gucci; everything he touches is retail gold, while the desire for Balenciaga knows no bounds—and more than a few surprises; who knew that the fanny pack would virtually obliterate the concept of the It bag? (Well, you, in all likelihood, since chances are you bought one.) And mazel tov to Virgil Abloh, because Off-White emerged as the label that really took off globally. Others, like Attico, Halpern, and a slew of quirky and less expensive bag labels, emerged as winners, too. In other words, it will go down as the year of the street, sequins, and sneakers—and...

The days of fashion as an elitist and exclusive niche industry are done—just look at Google’s list of the most trending fashion brands of 2017 for proof. Every brand in the top 10 made headlines in 2017 for boundary-crossing collaborations, innovative ad and marketing campaigns, and projects with creative upstarts that reflected the pulse of the world at large. The number one spot on the list goes to Gucci, a brand that’s been on the rise since Alessandro Michele was named creative director in 2015. This year, though, Gucci has really been on fire.

In today's retail-scape, you can shop anywhere—including on Instagram. In our new column The Tag, we're highlighting indie brands we've discovered (and fallen in love with!) through the social media platform.

Take a quick walk around any metropolitan city and you'll notice one thing: all the coolest girls wear the same exact thing. They might wear their Miaou pants with a shearling jacket instead of a cable-knit sweater, or tilt their cabby hat in a different direction, but every once in a while they will simultaneously latch on to a singular trend—and right now it's this pair of classic kicks.

How a Gallery Girl Dresses For The Job

elm120117figallerygirl-001-1512494476
For the 1942 opening of her gallery Art of This Century, Peggy Guggenheim paired a custom-made white gown with earrings designed for the occasion: one by sculptor (and friend) Alexander Calder, one by painter (and friend) Yves Tanguy—a soigné demonstration of her commitment to the competing schools of abstract and surrealist art on view in her boundary-pushing new space in midtown Manhattan. It’s easy to be a walking work of art in literal statement earrings when you’re a Guggenheim whose friends make MoMA-worthy sculpture one day and earrings for you the next. Today, though, it’s a woman further down the art-world food chain who has captured the imagination of fashion designers and young professional women alike. Enter the gallery girl—the brainy,...
