Marc Jacobs Spring 2019 Runway Show

This season, New York Fashion Week went out with a bang that was a bit louder than usual: The always-on-time Marc Jacobs began his show nearly 90 minutes late, and the rumor mill quickly got to work weaving its juiciest explanations for the uncharacteristic delay.   One such piece of gossip — that Jacobs had held up his show intentionally so to spite NYFW's newly minted closer, Rihanna's Savage x Fenty — was as pervasive as it was scandalous. Jacobs's runway presentations are guaranteed theatrics, but this rumble was a new kind of drama. While the collection was, rightfully, critically acclaimed, the backlash from some very well-spoken showgoers remained fiery. Late on Thursday night, however, Jacobs came forward to apologize via a lengthy Instagram caption that, while thoughtful, didn't explain why the...

Neo Noir Chic – H&M Studio A/W18 womenswear

H&M Studio releases its A/W18 womenswear collection, entitled  “Neo Noir Chic”, and inspired by the original cult 90’s series Twin Peaks. The dream logic aesthetic is writ large over a collection of ladylike statement pieces and borrowed-from-the-boys wardrobe classics.   Fifties movie icons, with their era-defining looks, provide further nostalgic stimulus, yielding precise, sculpting wool dresses and nipped-in coated cotton trench coats as well as indigo precision denim jackets, sturdy turn-up jeans and a grunge-infused viscose-silk suit. Cosy, hairy cropped knits and elegant neck-tie blouses are equally key pieces. “With H&M Studio, we love the play between the feminine and masculine and this year we added a 50’s twist – there are ultra-feminine options combined with mannish details and super-classic pieces that invite you...

DREAMING AT TIFFANY’S IN NEW YORK

Perhaps jewellery isn’t the only thing Tiffany & Co. will be known for. After watching this video, one might conclude that the brand has a mastery over storytelling and is a creator of powerful visuals and surprisingly, music.

DIOR’S SADDLE-BAG IS BACK

Inspired by the bursts of creativity that defined the year 1968, when the rules of fashion were turned upside down, Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri channeled such thoughts when piecing together the Autumn/Winter 2018-2019 ready-to-wear collection. Guided by this attitude advocating a search for authenticity and a willingness to ruffle fashion’s feathers and tear down established codes, the gorgeous saddle bags of this collection are no exception. Inspired by both this desire for freedom and the Maison’s heritage, the saddle bag historically made its debut in the Spring/Summer 2000 ready-to-wear collection, designed in 1999 by John Galliano (then creative director of Dior), bowing down to the world of equestrianism, with its form mimicking a horse saddle decorated with a gild...
