Mario Testino’s Niece Marina makes a Name For Herself With New Fashion Brand

img-8568-1508413909
There's a new Testino in town? Marina Testino, niece of legendary photographer Mario, is pursuing a fashion career of her own. After graduating from Parsons in May and signing with The Society Management's "creatives" division, the ambitious 22-year-old is debuting a clothing line cleverly named Point Off View, which launches tonight with an event at Andy Warhol's former Factory space in New York City. Testino aims to fuse fashion and art through a series of collaborative capsules (all crafted by Peruvian artisans) spotlighting different talents. Her first drop, Edition 0, includes everyday staples like denim jackets and button-ups emblazoned with attention-grabbing phrases intended to spark conversation―both in person and on social media. The sleeve of one army jacket claims, "I'm single depending...

Why Ugly-Shoe Instagram Accounts Are My Deepest, Darkest Guilty Pleasure

00-story-heels
I am fascinated by a really good ugly shoe. I’m talking a nasty, stubby kitten heel that comes in at .75 inches in height. An exquisitely awful footwear faux pas, like toes crunched in too-tight sky-high pumps. I find myself squealing with a combination of disgust and delight when I see a stray digit wiggle out of a pair of Céline sandals, or catch a glimpse of a man sporting a pair of Mexican pointy boots. (Though, if you want my opinion on the platform Crocs at Balenciaga, I’m indifferent. The footwear is shapeless. Like a large mass of rubber on a foot. Trèsboring.) I used to think I was mad for having this obsession. But I’m not alone. The ugly-pretty shoe...

What We Can Learn From H&M x Erdem’s Secret Garden Runway Show And Party

gettyimages-862953402-1508421642

To announce the launch of Erdem’s forthcoming collaboration with H&M, London-based designer Erdem Moralioglu brought an old English secret garden to Los Angeles. Walls of flowers and a swaying chandelier were the perfect backdrop to frame the designer and retail giant’s romantic eveningwear and coordinating suits. If Wednesday Adams ever married her true love in the English countryside, the set of Erdem and H&M’s collaboration would serve as the perfect inspiration.

GETTY

The collection is chock full of signature Erdem items: Models descended from a large balcony wearing a series of floral-print dresses—some knee-length, some full gowns, some with cut-outs, bows, sheer details, and frills—an adorable pajama set, suits, and tweed. But Moraliouglu also planned some unexpected standout moments,...

Whether you're ready for it or not, holiday shopping season is upon us. And if you're already stumped on what to get the special someone in your life, Neiman Marcus has a suggestion: why not a Rolls-Royce convertible or two?
The high-end retailer is offering limited-edition Dawn Drophead Coupés by the luxury auto dealer as a part of its annual Christmas Book holiday gift catalogue. The vehicles come in two "yours & mine" styles—because why would you give someone a Rolls-Royce without getting one for yourself?
There's a Lake Como-inspired blue iteration with a grey-and-black leather interior and a brushed metal dashboard for $439,625:

How Fiorucci Staged a Comeback Via Hashtag

03a7067-1508425418

It was the fashion equivalent of a one-two punch.
One Spring morning, Gigi Hadid pushed through paparazzi in a simple white t-shirt with a vintage neon logo: Fiorucci. That same week, Chloe Sevigny wore her Fiorucci logo tee out shopping. Like a signal flare to their respective style tribes, the #Fiorucci hashtag started spreading from Brooklyn to Beverly Hills. And presto—a carefully planned comeback was born (along with tons of blog posts).

Ummmm who had a @fiorucci tee growing up? Me at 12 years old and they are back! Wow! #chloesevigny #fiorucci . . . . . : : : . . #melbournestylist #personalstylist #shopping #fashion #style #love #dailyfashion #makeover #wardrobe #trends #fashioninspo #styleinspiration #clothes #wiwt #streetstyle #lifestyle #wiw #instastyle #instafashion #instagood #igdaily #mum...

Tommy Hilfiger Will Now Design Clothes Specifically For Disabled People

tommy-hilfiger-1508314854
Tommy Hilfiger has announced plans to make a line of clothes for people with disabilities, Bloomberg has reported. The American fashion label is tapping into a market usually ignored by luxury fashion brands. The adaptive clothing line will feature adjusted seams and openings that make it easier for caretakers to dress the wearer, as well as magnetic closures so that it is easier to pull garments over the head or to get dressed with one hand. Trousers will have velcro and magnetic flies, while leg openings and hems will be adjustable to accommodate for leg braces. The men’s line will feature 37 pieces and the women’s 34 styles. In a statement, Hilfiger described moving into this market as part of a “democratization of fashion.”With millions...

Off-White’s Fan-Favorite Sneaker Are Finally Available For Women

off-white-x-mytheresa-com-1-1508265461

Virgil Abloh has been killing it lately—between his recent Spring/Summer 2018 Off-White collection being the talk of Paris fashion week, to his out-of-nowhere collab with Jimmy Choo, it seems he is never out of ways to satiate our biggest desires.
Today, mytheresa.com is launching an exclusive collaboration with the designer's lauded line, featuring a first-ever women’s version of his 3.0 sneaker. The shoes come in three colorways (solid white, white with light pink, and white with black), and feature orange tags on the front, encapsulating Abloh’s subversive, thoughtful take on street style. Sneakerheads will appreciate how similar the shoes have remained to the men’s “low” version. Fingers crossed that if all goes well, the “high” version (with an extended back) will be produced for the ladies soon.

Misbhv, The Next Big Name In Streetwear, Launches Shoes

alexandra-gordienko-misbhv-4-1508265249

When Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, and Bella Hadid start wearing a brand you haven't heard much about, it's usually a good sign to take notice. And in the case of Misbhv, the Polish luxury streetwear label that just launched a shoe collection (and has a top-secret upcoming collaboration with a major sneaker brand next August) the time to get in-the-know is now.
“Growing up and being fascinated with streetwear, with skater boys, with snowboards or basketball, which I was myself, was different," explains founder and designer Natalia Maczek. “Streetwear is an industry ruled by boys. But what makes us different is the fact that it’s filtered by the girls, or women’s approach to it.”

Revisiting Coco Chanel’s Apartment

code-coco-20-1507933824
Coco Chanel's hat shop first opened its doors at 21 rue Cambon in Paris. After finding success—and with it, the need to expand—the legendary designer moved operations down the street, to the now-iconic 31 locale in 1918. Purchasing the entire building, this is where Mademoiselle Chanel housed the new boutique, a presentation space for her collections, and her apartment, which has remained untouched today. Of course, calling it an apartment is a bit misleading as it is not a living space—there's no bedroom because she preferred the Ritz—but rather a parlor for entertainment. Over the past decades, this deeply-personal abode has captured the interests of countless, so it comes to no surprise that to commemorate its latest timepiece today, the...

Valentino is taking fashion's love for athleisure to the next level. The brand is opening sport-themed pop-up shops in New York, Milan, Hong Kong, and Tokyo to sell its athletic-inspired Resort 2018 collection, which creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli presented in May.
The interiors are designed to resemble chic gyms, and training spaces. (A release from the brand even teases "imaginary basketball nets.") In addition to the resort range, the pop-ups will also be selling sports gear, including basketballs, sneakers, yoga mats, and tracksuits.
The limited-edition items are all marked with a new logo, "VLTN," which was inspired by old Valentino logos in the '80s and '90s, according to WWD. Take a look at some of the athletic gear below:
