Swagger New York and Italian designer Michele Morricci came up with a bizarro collaboration: fantasy illustrations detailing what some of our fave cartoon characters might wear to New York Fashion Week, and man, is it weird. It’s troubling enough imagining grown-up Lisa Simpson at all, but then to see her yellow-ish body bedecked in sassy Marc Jacobs hot pants and a button down? I’m still not used to the idea of her having knees. Morricci also illustrated Sailor Moon as a whimsical Rodarte fanatic, Daria in practical and chic Prabal Gurung, and perhaps most appropriately, Beavis and Butthead in Jeremy Scott. Because of course they’d wear a designer known for putting fast food on swimsuits and dogs in animal print shoes.

There are so many shows, and not enough hours in the day to possibly go to all of them. Good thing, then, that we’ve got your New York Fashion Week coverage down. We’re not even half way through day two, and there’s already been nearly three dozen shows. We’ve whittled it down to a few of our faves from the second day of shows. Up first: Rachel Comey, who created a collection exuding her signature downtown cool vibe.
Check out more collections Tadashi Shoji, Kaehlen, Honor and more after the jump! Keep reading »
New York Fashion Week is underway, and it seems that people are feeling a bit … lukewarm about it. Hey, the times are changing, and so is the face of one of the most anticipated fashion events of the year. With up-to-the-minute news (and clothes) available on the Internet at every turn, is New York Fashion Week losing its relevance? Could it be on its way to a demise, or at least a very heavy change of pace? And would that necessarily be a bad thing?
Fashion Week, which has made its home at Lincoln Center these past few years, has been a staple of the industry for decades. In the last several years, the fashion world has been forced to accommodate the addition of the likes of twitter, tumblr, street style blogs, and instant online shopping to the action. While the internet can be a huge advantage to the industry, the exclusive air of seeing NYFW shows in person is losing some of its cachet. Designers have taken to streaming their fashion shows live so everyone and their cousin can watch from home on the couch. This certainly saves time for the press and allows accessibility for thousands of consumers, but what does it mean for fashion’s power players? When minute-to-minute updates are being tweeted and blogged and instagrammed all over the world, is the live event devalued?

Gorgeous clothes, tons of festivities, star sightings city-wide — what’s not to love about Fashion Week? Well, the prices, for one thing. We might fall madly in love with a dress right off the runway, but we’d be mad to shell out $3,000 for it, no? That’s why we’ve taken to the Internet in search of our favorite catwalk trends on a waaaaaay more reasonable budget.
Today, we’ve stolen this red, pink and white look from Creatures of the Wind’s Spring 2014 show. Details after the jump! Keep reading »

New York Fashion Week is here, bitches! It’s time to prepare your eyeballs for weird accessories, fancy dresses, new trends, styles we can’t pronounce and fabrics we didn’t know existed.
Today kicked off the first of many NYFW runway shows where we got to take a sneak peek at the hottest ready-to-wear looks for Spring 2014. While there were certainly some ensembles resembling bathrobes and costumes that might be found in “Alice in Wonderland,” there was one trend from this summer that found its way into the spring collections: crop tops!
Though I could NEVER wear something baring my midriff unless I wanted to blind those around me, apparently the crop top has staying power! Who knew?! But which of these runway crop top looks is more “wearable” for the masses? Cast your vote above!
Welcome to our 2013 NYFW coverage! We’ve got all the latest from the shows — and have curated some our favorite looks from the top designers. Up first, Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. collection — chic, bohemian and super-comfy looking. After the jump, highlights from Erin Fetherston, BCBG Max Azria, Red Valentino and more!

I know you think it’s 2013, but as far as the fashion universe is concerned, we’re already living in the future. It’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for swimwear, and designers have been showing their swimsuit collections for summer 2014. Basically, this is all the stuff you’ll be seeing in Urban Outfitters next year. And the consensus? Everybody’s going to be rocking some pretty insane tan lines, if these looks are any indication. We soldiered through and looked at all the suits, and selected some of the crazier silhouettes for next season. Check ‘em out.
A few weeks ago, guests at Dolce and Gabbana’s show for Milan Men’s Fashion Week got an eyeful when a male streaker jumped on the runway. The naked prankser, who was wearing only his red sneakers, gallivanted onto the runaway after the designers’ final bow until he was caught by security. According to reports, attendees were unfazed by the naked man … probably since strange things happen at fashion shows more often than you would think! For example… [GQ]
Aaaaand it’s a wrap! After New York, London, Milan, and finally 9 long, show-filled days in Paris, Fashion Month is over. We’ll certainly miss the constant flow of impressive new looks, both on the runway and in the streets… but we can’t imagine that the globe-trotting editors and fashionistas who have to actually cover each individual show in person share our sentiments. Fashion can be exhausting, you know. We’re finishing off Paris with Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, and Elie Saab. Until next season! Keep reading »
