I don’t remember falling more in love with a Céline collection, especially a spring summer collection before and that says a lot in my book. As the years passed, Phoebe Philo somehow turned Céline into a style phenomenon that gets less minimal yet more refined and relaxed at the same time, all in all a nonconformist, perfectly balanced parade of everyday women. I don’t think that, at this point, it’s too early or too ambitious to call her one of the top 10 designers that shaped fashion as we know it. She’s an invisible logo on collections that don’t need an explanation.
There’s no denying neither Vetements’s success nor the incapability of understanding Vetements’s success but one thing’s clear: everyone wants a piece (or at least wants the style; the rise of Levi’s 501s, spike heel boots, huge shoulders, extra long sleeves, sweatshirts are all thanks to Demna Gvasalia). But there was one collection even the most devoted fans didn’t know about, the fall 2014 collection Gvasalia had to show in his Paris apartment where everyone involved got paid in clothes (I call that a good investment) and now the designer is re-imagining the first ever Vetements collection for the relaunch of Style.com. Want to add a little more quirkiness to the good news? Just visit the new Vetements website.
I’m yet to see a Marni collection that I don’t like, to be honest I have this positive bias towards anything Consuelo Castiglioni does, but the spring/summer 2017 collection added a whole new dimension to that little obsession. Asymmetric pleats, pouch fanny packs, one shoulders and fall layering all re-imagined and mastered under Castiglioni’s one of a kind vision, this probably is one of the strongest collections of this fashion month.
It’s totally OK if this the first time you’re hearing the name Rejina Pyo but if it’s the first time you’re seeing her pieces, then you must have been looking elsewhere during fashion week because the street style is ALL ABOUT HER now. She is hotter than Céline or JW Anderson or Gucci or any other designer you can think of. From Leandra Medine to Kate Foley, Pandora Sykes to Yasmin Sewell and Camille Cherriere; every single it girl already owns a piece from the S/S 2017 collection and the rest of the more *real* show goers are sporting the shoes and dresses from the fall one so it’s not one of those designer’s good blogger friends helping her get famous thing, she’s officially the next big thing and everyone’s on board. Korean born – London based designer was the first assistant of Roksanda Ilincic before she won the prestigious Han Nefkens Fashion Award through which she was commissioned to create an installation for the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. Entitled ‘Structural Mode’ this …
Even though I’m not (technically, officially) a Canadian (yet), I probably feel like a native more than most Canadians most of the time. I’m constantly apologizing and thanking for something, I’m getting into hockey discussions on Twitter in August, I’m referring to all Canadian athletes as “us” when watching the Olympics and most of all, I get more proud than anyone else when a Canadian succeeds at something. I’ve been following sisters Parris and Chloé Gordon since their Toronto days and they never failed to impress me, not when the years passed, not when they moved to NYC, not ever. They bring me life every single time.
