Fausto Puglisi Autumn (Fall) / Winter 2014

Perhaps every runway should open with a soundtrack of a cheering crowd. It sets the mood and raises your spirits, willingly or not. Fausto Puglisi’s fall / winter 2014 show opened with a recording of ACDC’s Thunderstruck, and the rock ‘n’ roll mood was laid down so palpably it was there for Lindsey Wixson to walk on. She looked like a rock goddess.

Pointy flats: yes, they’re back for spring 2014

Over the past decades, the pointed flats have come and gone numerous times, their most memorable appearances being closely related to the iconic Audrey Hepburn gifting them with a brand new identity in the 1950s-60s, and their dominating the 1980s fashion scene once again, barring the same poignant attitude. The last couple of years may have announced the return of the pointed flats in a…

Fashion trends: whether you want to follow them, ignore them, or rebel against them entirely, the one thing you can’t do is deny their existence.

Pink hair and the magic of the Eighties

How do you create a shoot that highlights elements of the 1980s but doesn’t actually feel like it’s dated? Luca Meneghel has the answer in the form of this photo series, titled Pink Eighties. The title is fairly self explanatory; and yet between Meneghel’s photography, Norma Nardi’s styling and Sabine Gutwenger’s hair and makeup, it all feels decidedly modern. Model Madeline Pace wears floral hotpants,…

Thakoon Addition Resort 2014

A story of volumes and abstract prints, Thakoon Addition’s resort 2014 collection is rooted in the brand’s signature sports theme, but this season brought along a sense of softness. Although inspired by the sexy-athletic image of Cindy Crawford back in the 1980s, Thakoon Panichgul chose to replace the body-hugging silhouettes with something more relevant thus playing upon geometry and shapes.

10 absurd fashion statements we’re happy never became trends

While it’s true that we all share a certain connection with the past and we have the good old days to thank for some of our all-time favourite fashion trends, think ultra-short mod dresses, Letterman jackets, peter pan collars and cat eye sunglasses, fashion as we know it today would have been a totally different story had any of the following fashion statements emerged into…

5 ways for girls to rock a tie this spring

For what seemed like the longest time, ties have been strictly associated with the menswear department, defining dandy looks and helping shape a gentleman’s ever so polished appearance. But as society has undergone evolution, the masculine-feminine boundaries have slowly blurred. Steering away from the corporate and leaving the over-the-top preppy days behind, the tie became a versatile statement accessory. Explored in subtle ways, veiled in…

The good, the fab, and the just-plain-wrong: sheers & open weaves for men

Keen catwalk watchers will have seen it blip across their radar for a few years now: the men’s interpretation of sheer fashion. The wit of one our Twitter followers summed up our guide to women’s sheer as ‘how to be naked nicely.’ Spot on. Few men are going to go there, however; and with good reason. As anyone looking to avoid social leprosy knows, a…

Weekend beauty (that you wouldn’t want to mess with): Gabrielle by Antony Nobilo

Somewhere between the 1980s and the Wild West is a place where Gabrielle Dover guards your house with a big ‘ol shotgun. Wild eyed and dishevelled, she looks both fearsome and fearless; the kind of girl with nothing to lose a kind of Bonnie Parker bank-robber spirit. Antony Nobilo’s shoot sees Gabrielle styled into an eclectic mix of outfits: a feminine lace dress, silk blouse,…
