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
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
I’ve never been to a garden party but I figure, if you were to attend one, you’d need a light, white (maybe eyelet?) dress and a soft, featherweight cardigan. So, for those of you who can handle (maybe even enjoy) direct sunlight, here are some light Spring-appropriate cardigans, perfect for warming weather that hasn’t yet begun to swelter. More
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.
We’ve got long, long skirts on the brain. Here’s a few we’re digging right now (at many different price points) along with their runway inspirations, all perfect for Fall 2011. More
Here at TheGloss, we are not afraid to help out in all manner of issues that require some fashion troubleshooting. In this case, we are not afraid to make sure you stay chic, warm, comfortable and deathly effective during the impending apocalypse. What kind, you ask? I’m not sure, so maybe a kind of general, broad-stroke apocalypse featuring mutants, zombies, flesh-eating virus, what have you. Let’s just say computers did it. More

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

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
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
Need some runway inspiration for the spookiest weekend of the year? Need a distraction from the bowls of waxy American chocolate scattered about your office? Are you sick of people incorporating words like “spooky” into casual conversation? What about “boo” puns? I suggest you throw on some headphones, ignore the pervasive nausea you’re feeling from all those (allegedly) “fun-size” Twix bars and More
