Three sartorial questions for Jennifer Aniston here: One, are you seriously wearing a belly tee, dude? We haven’t seen one of those since Britney Spears (and you) wore them all over the place in the ’90s. Two, is that scarf choking you? Three, if it’s that cold, shouldn’t you just use the scarf to cover up your mid-section? Just askin’, Jen, just askin’. [London, 3/10/10] Keep reading »
French fashion designer Thierry Mugler has launched a women’s website called Womanity. We can’t quite understand how it’s supposed to function or what it’s supposed to promote—the content functions as a sort of user-generated tag cloud (well, a very visually-pleasing tag cloud), where people submit their interpretations of what “Womanity” is. The tagline, “The invisible bond between women,” seems to sum up the obtuseness of the project as Mugler projects his own vague explanation, saying, “I think that women should define the framework of Womanity.” As for the general inspiration behind it, he says: “I began by thinking about women of today, filled with incredible energy, who are all go, always on the move … It’s the energy of women. The energy of having children, the energy of raising them, the energy of handling them, the energy of giving, and on top of all that, the energy of playing, looking good, having fun and living, with joy, frankness and honesty.”
Energy. Women. Do you get it? What do you think? [Womanity.co.uk] Keep reading »
Yesterday, a handful of fashion editors were treated to a private showing of Alexander McQueen‘s fall collection, a mix of Hieronymus Bosch and other great artist-inspired prints that, as Suzy Menkes put it, embodied “the designer’s exceptional reach from historic past to cyberspace future.” The models wore mystical-looking golden mohawks, the shoes were outrageous, and of course, the couture-quality clothes were absolutely transcendent. If you’d like to see the 16 looks up close — and you should, the level of detail is insane — click on their hyper zoom-friendly slideshow. [New York Times] Keep reading »
After reading about the ridiculous air diet in a recent issue of French Grazia, I have a confession to make: I’m now a full-on addict of the sometimes-crazy fashion rag, and look forward to picking it up just to see what weird “hot trend” they’ll uncover next. (Of course, this is much easier for me to do given that I live in Paris—but now I can translate all the best international gossip for you!) This week, it’s about old people: “Les Seniors de la Hype,” which I’m sure you understand. Keep reading »
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free of lame collaboration overload. Kristin Reiter and Valerie Killeen, aka Bleachblack, have joined forces with Urban Outfitters once again to bring us some super cool, highly covetable new rings that we could actually envision perched on our fingers. “The branch ring is modeled after my mother’s treasured faux-bois wedding ring from 1975,” Killeen states in the press release. What the hell is a faux-bois ring you ask? It’s French for “false wood.” (I knew a guy who had that once.) Pick these babies up at Urban later this month. Keep reading »
Yes, those Chanel tattoos are very, very cool, but not everyone in the world is a fashionista who can rock them with her matching Coco ballet flats. That’s why we’re kinda digging these skeleton tattoos, visible only under UV lights.
Hey, nerds deserve some cool fake body art, too, now don’t we? [Geekologie] Keep reading »
