Here’s That Fall 2013 Marc Jacobs Collection You’ve Been Missing

Is Marc Jacobs asleep at the wheel? Maybe not, but he certainly was feeling sleepy. That’s what we’ve surmised by going through his pajama-themed Fall 2013 collection. After being cancelled last week thanks to a non-fashion-loving blizzard, the show finally went on last night.

You know how you’ve been seeing a lot of…

Paco Rabanne’s Alien Love Child

I’ve long associated Spanish designer Paco Rabanne with ’80s sportswear designs, though he’s had a storied history as a costumer for outlandish films like “Barbarella,” too. The line is now helmed by designer Manish Arora, who channeled Rabanne’s more extravagant roots. Using his couture sensibility, he created other-wordly chic aliens. Yes, you can invade our…

Why Not? Dresses Made Out of Fake Nails

Sometimes you’re like, “Oh dang, I’m so over wearing cotton and silk and such. Why can’t someone just up the ante a bit?” And then designer Charlie Le Mindu goes and makes a ton of garments out of frickin’ Minx fake nails. Like, thousands of them! Oh hello! We like! We like so much! (Though…

Model Inner Monologue: Dazed And Confused

Chris Benz told reporters that his Spring 2012 collection was inspired by the madness induced by this summer’s heat wave. This model’s pose at the presentation really drove that point home, don’t you think? See the whole collection here.

You Guys Really Need To See This Insane Thom Browne Collection, Okay?

So, I was flipping through the latest collections from NY Fashion Week and I came across American designer Thom Browne’s newest looks. Browne is more well-known for his menswear line, but this collection focused primarily on women. Or birds. Or lobsters. It’s just … out of control, from boxy shoulders, to outsized proportions, to fantastical…

Strange Bedfellows: Who’s Sitting With Whom At Fashion Week

Look at this picture and tell me this isn’t one of the best things you’ve ever seen. Nicki Minaj making small talk with Vogue’s Anna Wintour. Can you even imagine what they’re chatting about? Nicki’s probably all, “Lady, I like your floral situation,” while Anna sits by, quietly horrified by Nicki’s loud craft store-inspired get-up. Keep clicking for more…

Style Stealer: Christian Siriano’s Chartreuse Runway Look

“Project Runway” alum Christian Siriano’s Spring 2012 collection was all about balancing bright colors with soft, neutral palettes (Jill Stuart did a similar thing). We love the unexpected color combinations, and did our best to recreate Siriano’s style. Take a look after the jump.

Model Inner Monologue: A Socky Situation

As much as we wanted to like the Creatures of the Wind collection, the flat, dowdy presentation of the clothing, combined with the sullen faces of the models left a lot to be desired. Guys, it’s fashion, not a Soviet gulag! Check out the full collection here.

Would You Wear: Pant Boots?

Take a good look at this picture from Hermes’ Fall Ready-to-Wear collection. Sure, it looks like some leather pants and some boots, but look closer: Those are pant boots — pants with built-in shoes. Of course, they’re from Hermès, so they’re prohibitively expensive, but it’s only a matter of time before this idea trickles dow…
