Koché Showed Its Pre-Fall 18 Collection At NYC’s Most Iconic Bookstore

The Parisian house celebrated New York City with a little help from its favorite bookstore.

There are over two million books at The Strand, widely regarded as the best bookshop in New York City, if not the world. The most valuable titles are found on the fourth floor, in the Rare Book Room. Many books up there predate the shop itself, which opened 90 years ago. But it’s not all antiques. The Rare Book Room doubles as The Strand’s signing space. It’s not uncommon to find Patti Smith — a former Strand employee — inscribing box-fresh copies of her newest publication surrounded by sun-faded books by her favorite writer, Rimbaud.

This might’ve been the year that the modeling industry began to awaken to a broader and more diverse definition of beauty. Behind the scenes, the safety and working conditions of models were exposed via social media by people like Sara Ziff and the Model Alliance, Cameron Russell, and James Scully. In response, LVMH and Kering, leaders in the luxury sector, penned a model charter. Front of house, there were changes aplenty as well. According to Forbes, Kendall Jennerhas surpassed Gisele Bündchen as the highest-paid model. Then there was the omnipresence of the Hadid sisters, the return of the supers, the arrival of the sons and daughters of the supers, and too many new faces to count. How to make sense of it all? We turned to you, dear readers. Here,...

Here’s How Designers Predicted This Summer’s Biggest Trends

Photo Left: Indigital.tv Photo Right: Getty Images
This was the summer of throwback clothing. Trends of yesteryear, like dangerously low-slung jeans and tiny tube tops, were everywhere. While it’s easy enough to clock the recent resurgence of ’90s fashion phenomena on the streets, we spotted most of these looks on the Spring 2017 runways way in September of last year. Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, to Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen at The Rowseem to have inspired the aforementioned bumsters and bandeaux. Fanny packs, which were seen on the runways at Stella McCartney and Off-White, went from being associated with schleppy tourists to the It bags of the moment. Yeezy gave new meaning to spandex and inspired many to experiment with bike shorts and bodysuits, while Simon Porte Jacquemus made waves with his boldly big sun hat and French holiday–inspired...

10 Major Chanel Runway Moments From The 90s

GETTY IMAGES
Of all the runway shows in the history of fashion, you're likely most familiar with the images from Chanel—especially during the 1990s. Not only because the collections were full of the iconic interlocking Cs logo―splashed across everything from bikinis and sunglasses to jackets and handbags―but because it was the original era of the supermodel. Each show was a real show thanks to the star power models like Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell provided. In honor of Coco Chanel's birthday (August 19, 1883), we rounded up some of our all-time favorite moments spotted on the Chanel runways in the '90s. You'll be shocked at how current some of the styles look. Should we sign a petition to bring back some of these archival looks?...

You never know what you're going to get from a Demna Gvasalia-designed Balenciaga show. One season it may be Bernie Sanders-inspired and the next it's a riff on couture designs of the past.

In true expect-the-unexpected form, the Georgian designer payed special attention to the dad set with a menswear collection that, according to show notes, is inspired by "young dads in the park with their kids at the weekend."

Models walked the runway wearing variations of "dad" looks—jeans that are a little too wide paired with slightly oversized blazers, high-waist pants with button down shirts—arm in arm or even carrying child models.

What’s Up Down Under? 5 Takeaways From Australian Fashion Week

double_rainbouu_45
Australian Fashion Week has the honor of being one of the more remote international fashion weeks. That reality has its undeniable pros and cons. In the pro column is Australian fashion’s covetable, understated sense of ease, showcased during the Resort 2018 shows at Dion Lee, Christopher Esber, Akira, Albus Lumen, and Bianca Spender. That unfussy coolness is the country’s best export and also its best marketing technique—as a grouchy New Yorker, walking through the streets of tan, tall, healthy people in cool slouchy clothes was enough to make a me want to ditch boots, and maybe shoes all together, for a beach-going lifestyle, flip-flops, and hip-slung trousers. That might be why my suitcase returning was so much heavier. . ....
