The Comme des Garçons Centrefold, Starring Raquel Zimmermann


“I felt it was impossible to make something new if I thought about making clothes in the usual way. So I tried once again, as with the last six collections, to think about not making clothes as such, and this time I had the idea of making the clothes invisible, as if they were not there, as if they were part of their surroundings or objects within themselves” – Rei Kawakubo

The Most On-Trend Denim For SS17


It used to be enough to throw on a pair of skinnies and you were right on trend. Not this season. Denim offers a multitude of possibilities for spring/summer. These are the most on-trend looks of this season.


Seventies-style flares have almost become a classic. If you love a wide leg, but want to keep your denim look elevated and utterly on trend, go super-wide. For the most flattering silhouette, choose high-waisted jeans and wear with wedges for an elongated leg.

Eighties style If you remember Bananarama, then the eighties pop band is your inspiration here. A cropped jacket in a stone wash is just the thing to transform your outfit from meh to totally...

No Sesso

LA-based label No Sesso is currently disrupting the industry with a message that embraces LGBTQ people of all ethnicities. Designer, Pierre Davis is making fashion more inclusive by creating garments that will fit, for example, a trans woman with broad shoulders or a petite man. Drawing inspiration from race, identity and the visual arts, Davis translates his references with the use of various textiles, print, and embroidery. He notes “Every stitch, including the intricate custom hand embroidery, acts as a peaceful protest that seeks to revolutionize the world through fashion and art. Here, the person of color and those who identify as queer or gender fluid are embraced.” With this attitude, it’s no surprise that the brand counts among many devotees...

How The Jumpsuit Supplanted The Cocktail Dress


IT'S NOT often that North Korea's state-run websites can claim to be ahead of the fashion curve, but in 2010, well - they called it. Uriminzokkiri hailed the hermit kingdom's great general Kim Jong-il, "who is always wearing the modest suit while working", as therefore leaving "a deep impression on people's minds in the world". Presumably even it had no idea just how popular Kim Jong-il's signature style would become.

Seven years later, the jumpsuit has supplanted the cocktail dress as the summer occasion outfit of choice. Witness Scarlett Johansson, who's rarely out of a jumpsuit at the moment as she hits the publicity tour for Ghost In The Shell. Or look to Kerry Washington, pretty...

Why We All Want To Wear A Shirtdress

SHIRTING has long been the backbone of my wardrobe – shirts with jeans, shirts with black trousers – mannish, non-decorative styles in classic white, blue, and banker stripes by designers like Céline, Valentino, Palmer//Harding (joint winners of this year’s BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund prize) and newcomer, Monographie, complete with irresistible tortoiseshell buttons. But as spring blooms, the shirtdress has become "the thing"; and it’s easy to see why. This extension of the shirt, sans trousers, is smart and chic and has the power to take you everywhere from the office to after-work drinks and all with the ease of it looking like something you’ve borrowed from your boyfriend. (On that note, to prevent it resembling an excuse-me-but-I-just-got-out-of-bed look ensure yours...

The Art Of Effortless Brunch Style

There are few weekend activities more enjoyable than gathering your friends together for a catch-up around a coffee-ladened brunch table. Even better if it’s warm enough to sizzle on a sun-soaked terrace and really show off the new seasonal sweethearts set to turn the heat up this summer: think rippling ruffles, stomping platforms and dresses galore. After months of sportswear, oversized padded jackets, boots and trousers, our collective relief at shrugging off the heavy winter wear in favour of cut-up florals, directional silhouettes and statement sandals was palpable. Florals for spring may not be ground-breaking; however designers this season threw out the rulebook and gave them a new spin. Look to Valentino for a patchwork of prints that conjures feelings of...

Runway Inspired: What To Wear This Spring/Summer 2017

Stella McCartney, Bottega Veneta, Loewe

Take cue from the runway for your next #OOTD
Trends come and go but that’s what make them even more exciting! Fashion is all about experimenting, and there’s no better way than to find inspiration from the runway itself. Here are three key trends that you can play around with this Spring and Summer.
#1 Garden of eve
Nothing screams Spring like good ‘ol florals – so why not wear it from top to bottom! If you’re worried about overdoing the print, opt for dark tones to soften your entire look. Picking out small floral prints and in separate pieces also makes the outfit more wearable. But if you’re a fashion daredevil, go for bright colours like bright yellow, orange or pink!

Spring 2017 Trend Report: How to Wear Stripes

Stripes and the red carpet might seem like an unlikely duo, but this Awards season has seen a handful of colourful lust-worthy lines. From Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery to Black-ish’s Yara Shahadi, rainbow-striped gowns add a fresh spin to the usual Hollywood eveningwear fare. This spring, stripes are everywhere—from classic Bretons to Nouveau Technicolour, this print is angling for serious space in your closet. And why not? It’s one of the most wearable (gasp!) trends this season—and a cinch when it comes to styling. For a timeless sea-worthy look, stick to stripes in go-to primary colours like red and blue. Altuzarra’s nautical-inspired off-the-shoulder dress easily transitions from day to night, simply by swapping your accessories. Proenza Schouler did a stellar striped...
