#1 Crush: Our Favorite Look At Mandy Coon Spring 2012 Is A Black & Blue LBD

Since launching her eponymous line in 2010, Mandy Coon has already developed a reputation for dark, moody clothes to glower in the ranks beside goth favorites like Rick Owens and Ann Demuelemeester. For Spring 2012, however, she added bolts of bright, saturated color, like the season’s already-becoming-ubiquitous cobalt. Here, she takes her talents to a truly killer party dress. More »

Gallery: Behold The Amazing Fall 2011 InAisce Collection

One of our current fashion obsessions is local label InAisce. The New York-based design house (pronounced: “in-äs-kə”) has only been around for a couple seasons now but has already managed to catch our attention in a big way. It’s structured, minimal, category-defying and gorgeous, in a palette of restrained pale grays, washed-out whites and blacks. Recalling all-time favorites like Comme des Garçons and Rick Owens, InAisce is perfect for cool urban girls stuck on the tundra and I can’t stop staring at their lookbook. So here it is. More »

Paris Fashion Week: Our 15 Favorite Looks

Paris Fashion Week: Our 15 Favorite Looks

The mood in Paris was somber. The runways saw countless covered figures (loads of sleeved dresses, capes and capelets topped dozens of wideleg trousers), though these are Fall collections, after all. Some silhouettes were unapologetically ladylike (like at Miu Miu and Nina Ricci) but there seemed to be a storm cloud over many of the shows: Chanel was staged in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, the Alexander McQueen collection was in honor of “the Ice Queen and her court,” and the backdrop for Lanvin’s austere looks was a weeping willow. Dark, maybe, but plenty to love.

Gallery: 10 Straight Male Fashion Designers

People sometimes joke about how everyone in fashion–who doesn’t have girl parts–is gay… which is a pretty lame thing to say about an industry that produces a lot of brilliant work by a lot of talented people, some of whom happen to be gay. But hey, funny story, some of those dudes designing beautiful clothes for women happen to be straight, too! Here’s ten of ‘em and so much for boring generalizations! More »

Yes Fur, No Fur: Designers For And Against Pelts

Yes Fur, No Fur: Designers For And Against Pelts

Earlier today we posed the question, “How do you feel about fur?” It’s as controversial a fashion topic as eating disorders and underage models; everyone seems to have a really passionate opinion about fur. Some think it’s barbaric–that the fur industry is rife with animal abuse among other horrors–while others think it’s opulent, warm, and wonderful, the zenith of luxury. Still others–like the PETA protesters I spotted picketing outside Fendi once–are militant anti-fur but More »

Lust Object: Rick Owens Wool-flannel Coat

Lust Object: Rick Owens Wool-flannel Coat

First of all, yes, I am aware that every Lust Object shouldn’t be Alexander Wang/McQueen or Rick Owens. I’ve come to terms with that, I promise, and will try to branch out in the future. But yesterday, I highlighted an austere Owens coat and one commenter responded that the flat asymmetric front would make her (and “her boobies”) look bulky. This comes right on the heels of a male friend of mine asking More »
