WEEKLY FASHION NEWS RECAP 1/1-1/9: Dolce and Gabbana Hijab, the Lampshade Trend, Courreges Death, and Kanye West New Music
Luxe Coverups: Italian design duo Dolce and Gabbana have debuted a collection of hijabs and abayas aimed at the Middle Eastern market. The gorgeous headscarves and full length outer garments mimic the fashion house's spring collection featuring their signature lace detail and playful romantic prints of lemons, daisies and red roses... This is awesome considering Muslim shoppers literally spend billions on clothing all year round- not just around Ramadan like some designers would have you to believe. Fashion; always on the cutting edge of technology- but late as hell when it comes to RL situations. Read about this over at Vogue.com
Shady Ladies: There is a new street style trend racking up thousands of Instagram likes called lampshading. The lampshade silhouette is made when you pair a large sweater or tunic with over the knee boots. The look- which has been most recently seen on the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Hailey Baldwin and other celebs- was actually said to have been inspired by lazy college students wearing over sized sweaters over their shorts to class. How's that for the trickle down theory lol. See how to rock the trend here...
Space Age Designin: Andre Courreges passed away from Parkinson's Disease at the age of 92 this past Thursday. The futuristic French designer known for introducing gogo boots and mini skirt to the masses (along with British designer Mary Quant) studied under Cristobal Balenciaga before branching out into his own space aged inspired designs. His signature geo metric shapes, use of new materials and white and silver color palette were hard to miss in the sixties as he dressed everyone from first lady Jacqueline Kennedy to actress Catherine Deneuve and Miley Cyrus. See a slideshow of some of his work here.
Yeezy Season Redux: Kanye West, GQ's Most Stylish Man of 2015 is set to drop his new album on February 11, 2016. While that may seem like just another day to fans of the rap artist, fashionistas know that date as the first day of New York Fashion Month and are wondering if West will show a collection to coincide with a music, or vice a versa... Read more about the release of Swish here.. I can't lie- I am kind of excited to see if he will stage a show on the same day and make it some multi media interactive live stream affair that only Yeezy could pull off..
