A Photographic Tribute To Stacking, Layering And Loading Up

Tim Elkaïm and Chloe Grace Press chronicle the pieces calling out to be worn all at once for Autumn/Winter 17

In classical sculpture, the ancient Greek goddess Hecate was carved into a polycephalous being, with three heads or faces denoting the various facets of her authority over the earth, sky and sea. Here, for AnOther Magazine A/W17, Chloe Grace Press alludes to the power of Hecate through an edit of pieces which play on multiplicity; clothes and accessories incorporating double, triple and quadruple elements, all in the name of emphasis. Whether a trompe-l’œil heeled patent boot from Maison Margiela, several Chanel necklaces worn at the same time, or duplicated prints from Céline, you too can exude Hecate’s ancient strength with your sartorial choices this season,...

Trange Is the New Black

hbz-stranger-things-00-lead-new-1503885173

Fall 2017 is a season of bizarre, gorgeously bonkers fashion. I dare you to toss convention out the window and join the new freakfest.
There are many advantages to going strange. First and foremost, strange clothing is empowering. Nobody messes with a strange person. I regularly test this theory on the New York subway. Whenever I board the A train in a strange outfit—stripy socks with sandals, flowery man-blouses, straw sombreros, massive shades—I precipitate a flurry of elbow nudges and anxious side-eyes. Too terrified to make eye contact, my fellow travelers immediately revert to playing Ballz on their smartphones. Sometimes people even cover their children’s eyes.

Bella Hadid Went Blonde Using Nothing But Glitter

landscape-1499347479-gettyimages-809196090

Bella Hadid is currently slaying Paris Fashion week, where you might have noticed that she dyed her hair blonde for Maison Margiela. Except, she didn't. She actually hacked her way to a "blondes have more fun" moment thanks to the power of glitter.

Stylist Eugene Souleiman used a heavy coating of gold glitter/paint on Hadid's hair in the place of dye, and we can all agree that the results are incredible—not to mention incredibly "do try this at home" inspiring.

Pat McGrath Outdid Herself at Maison Margiela’s Spring Couture Show

landscape-1485367995-elle-beauty-masion-margiela-couture

Makeup magician Pat McGrath has never shied away from a subversive look, and this morning was no different. Backstage at Maison Margiela's spring 2017 couture show, McGrath riffed on the modern art references in John Galliano's Artisanal collection, sending models down the runway with glossed cheekbones, 3-D wire details, and cerulean, crimson, and vinyl lips.

Maison Margiela’s Subversive Adaptation of the ‘It Bag’

362300
5AC Shoulder Bag, Maison Margiela Grained calf leather, 27cm x 42cm The conversations surrounding ‘It bags’ are, more often than not, dominated by ideas of elegance; their designs traditionally take inspiration from the agonisingly glamorous Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco, or Jane ‘I exude effortless Parisian chic’ Birkin. It is less common, however, that a bag possessing such potential for ‘It’ status take its references from an obscure counterculture bordering on the ultra-geeky – unless such a piece hails from the always-subversive house of Maison Margiela. Named after the French word ‘sac’, but written out in “L33t speak” – a tech language pioneered by online gamers and messageboard aficionados – the 5AC is a sci-fi take on a calfskin classic, distorted through the lens...
