No Go No Show: Never mind the fact that Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci invited literally everybody and they mama to sit at his NYFW show- there is one legendary model you won't catch anywhere near a catwalk- Iman. The retired supermodel and cosmetics pioneer told Page Six, "I haven’t been to a fashion show since 1989... The industry itself has changed; shows were being held for over an hour for the likes of Paris Hilton. I’m not going to that.” Oop lol! Read about how Iman spends here time here.
Checkmate: Not even ten years ago that iconic Burberry plaid was everywhere- apparel, shoes, bags, curtains, tablecloths, baby strollers and other random items that could be found at your local mall or hair store to the point where it became cliched to wear the distinctive camel, black, ivory and red tartan. But then designer Christopher Bailey became the creative director of the British heritage label and helped bring its status back by designing fashion forward ready to wear, updating their classic trench coat in new cuts, colors and fabrics, and the company slowly/snatched back all of those cheaply made mass market overseas licenses. Today the brand is strong and has now debuted the 'Scarf Bar', an online and in-store customization program that allows customers to personalize their cashmere scarf in any way they would like, choosing from over 32 colors and prints, classic warm or breathable lightweight cashmere, and for an extra $75, customers can even have their names monogrammed Make your own here!
Gen Yeezy: Remember Kanye West's minimalist atheleisure rags 'n' tatters NYFW collection for his first ADIDAS collaboration? It seems like forever ago even though it was only just this past February that we viewed (and some clowned) his debut. Well we are now finally seeing the 'Yeezy Season 1' collection make its rounds in fall editorials with R&B singer The Weeknd posing in GQ magazine while wearing exclusive outerwear pieces from the line and now in the inaugural men's issue of subversive style god Carine Roitfeld's CR FashionBook. West handpicked four rising musicians- Fetty Wap, Tink, Vic Mensa and Holt (the latter three all Chicago artists) to model the unisex label for the issue.
