SVMOSCOW Brings Vetements SS17 to Life in Hotel Editorial

Vetements has been all over our radar this week (though tbf, they usually never leave our radar). A few days ago we stopped by the it-brand’s garage sale, held in Seoul, to snap a few pics, and yesterday we were living for the best look yet of its collaborative sneaker with Reebok, called the “Pump Supreme.” Now Russian retailer SVMOSCOW has unveiled a lush editorial …

Just my type: how fashion became all about the font

Whatever insiders are allowed to geek out about at any given moment tells you a lot about where fashion is at. Five years ago, when minimalism ruled, it was highly prized to have a shepherd’s knowledge on the finer points of cashmere and wool – distinguishing your Hircus goats from your Andean vicuñas, for example. These days, in the world of slogan T-shirts and social-media-friendly …

Balenciaga’s SS17 Show Was More Inclusive But Still Fell Short on Diversity

Demna Gvasalia’s FW16 Balenciaga debut was deemed a triumph by most fashion publications; even the most notoriously curmudgeonly critics had something nice to say about the brand’s refreshed vision. Despite that, many were still left unsatisfied by the exclusively white cast of models. Gvasalia’s ultra-hyped Vetements presentation also featured no models of color, as has been the tradition since 2014. Casting director James Scully, who frequently works with Jason Wu …

Vetements to relaunch its 2014 collection

It’s hard to think of a time when Vetements was an insider brand and not the most talked-about label of the last few years. But such is the unrelenting pace of the fashion cycle – and moreover, Vetements’s place within that cycle – that the Parisian brand is set to relaunch its debut collection, already considered to be a cult classic. A piece from the …

Do You Need to Get the References to Appreciate Good Streetwear?

It’s easy to argue that logos and iconography are mere branding tools or distinctive imagery designed to stamp a visual signature. When these logos and iconography are released, appropriated and re-used, though, they gain a cultural context which transforms them into symbols loaded with history and context. Some are lucky enough to be deemed instantly desirable, whereas others become intrinsically linked with bad taste and …

Now-stalgia: why fashion is obsessed with looking back

The two most memorable shows of London fashion week had a common theme: memories. Ryan Lo’s fantasia collection of clothes (ruffles and balloon trousers in sweet-shop colours) recalled Pierrot. The rainbow wave was helped along by a triple whammy of music: A Whole New World from Aladdin, Immortality by Céline Dion and Walk Like an Egyptian by the Bangles. While in a mise-en-scène that included …
