’90s Jellies Make a Comeback In Milan

elle-90s-gellies-alberta-ferretti-1506011793

Alberta Ferretti knows an Insta-hit when she makes one.
Last season, the storied Italian designer sent models like Stella Maxwell and Halima Adendown the catwalk in days-of-the-week sweaters that everyone wore, and blogged, and eventually resold on The Real Real because #hustle.
Today, she doubled down with Skittle-colored tees and millennial pink cashmere sweaters in the same vein, plus something a little extra for us '90s junkies: black plastic jellies dotted with silver studs.

The flat shoes were worn by Feretti's supermodel squad, including Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, both Hadid sisters, and several Victoria's Secret mainstays. Paired with black one-piece swimsuits and some easy, shiny anoraks, the jellies were a nice relief from the white puffy sneakers and fuzzy grey slides we usually see with...

London Fashion Week Speed Date: Weekend Edition

GETTY

It's the Sunday edition of Fashion Speed Dating, and the rules are still the same: You dance to the Weeknd while we write through the weekend, and deliver a cheat-sheet of trends, must-haves, and talking points. Think of it as a style study guide for those who love fashion, but love sleeping in more. After all, why look at clothes if they can't be dreamy?

JW Anderson Loops Us In
Guests at this hotly anticipated London show had to walk through a spiral of seats to find their place. It had the same effect as pacing through those chalk labyrinths on the sidewalk—the mindfulness is refreshing, unless you get dizzy.

Red Boot

From R13, we've got a nod to a particular subculture that wears Monster-branded trucker hats and plaid shirts not for the irony, but utility. (Even if in this instance, that plaid shirt has been tied into a skirt.)

square-1498738182-photo-1-mb-shoe-for-pragueedit
Manolo Blahnik loves an extravagant shoe. Just ask Rihanna, whose collaboration for the brand has included $4,000 denim boot-pants and $2,300 jewel-encrusted gladiator sandals. Now, the designer has come out with his most outrageous offering yet: one-of-a-kind fuschia boots valued at a casual $5,700. They were created in partnership with crystal supplier Preciosa and debuted at its flagship store in Prague, Czech Republic earlier this week. The unique pair of stiletto boots feature pom poms and more than 100 Preciosa crystal chandelier trimmings.

How To Get Laid Wearing Birkenstocks

Mel Ottenberg is a Certified Big Deal™ in Fashion Land, having styled Bjork and Chloe Sevigny before becoming Rihanna's all-day-every-day outfit planner. So why is he now working with Birkenstock, the brand beloved by hot camp counselors who just dropped out of Oberlin?
"Not just Oberlin—I went to Rhode Island School of Design, and I wore them too!" he laughed. "Also, when I was a teenager, I interned for Marc Jacobs, and I would wear white Birkenstocks to the office. The city was so hot in summer; we all wore them with basically everything."

Fast forward to now, when "utility shoes"—Crocs at Christopher Kane, Tevas at Versace—have taken over runways, while Rihanna herself makes best-selling slides for Puma. But though...

Your First Look At Rihanna’s “So Stoned” Shoe Collection For Manolo Blahnik

hbz-rihanna-wild-thoughts-shoes-1498064507

Rihanna is many things—style icon, bona fide Bad Gal, philanthropist and singer of your new summer anthem—but one of her greatest talents may just be her ability to design a killer pair of shoes.
Following her latest bout of sold-out Puma shoes this spring, Bad Gal Riri is debuting another new footwear collaboration, this time with Manolo Blahnik. Aptly called "So Stoned," the collection marks the singer's third and final collab with the shoe brand (who can forgot those thigh-high denim boots?).
The four-piece collection consists of clear PVC sandals embellished with colorful Swarovski crystals (cue the "so stoned" pun). Rihanna sneakily debuted the first pair, dubbed the "Poison Ivy" gladiators, last week in the fashion-filled "Wild Thoughts" music video.

Sanayi 313 Is Love. No, Obsessed.

sanayi3136

Sanayi 313 isn’t just a shoe label. It’s a concept boutique founded by brothers Enis and Amir Karavil. Located in an industrial district of Istanbul, Sanayi 313 offers home furnishings, art, clothing, a marketplace and restaurant. Serena Uziyel, a close friend and Parsons School of Design graduate, joined the duo to design a collection of Ottoman-inspired babouche slippers and a cult following was ignited. The embellishments, which include pom poms, tassels and metallic embroidery, are fun but not frivolous – bold but not garish. Love. No, obsessed.
