To say Tommy Hilfiger show was a carnival is an understatement at best. The American designer pulled out all the stops, showcasing what a well-oiled marketing team looks like for their first in-season fashion show, except maybe for the budget and available resources. From the moment they decided to tap Gigi Hadid as co-designer for the fall collection, to the opening of the gates for over 2,000...

By Robin Torres
Occasionally, certain trims seem to go away for a while – for better or for worse and whether it’s warranted or not. Sometimes it’s because they’ve become outdated or abused; other times it’s because they’ve fallen out of grace or been overused. And yet, if fashion has taught us anything, it’s...
Occasionally, certain trims seem to go away for a while – for better or for worse and whether it’s warranted or not. Sometimes it’s because they’ve become outdated or abused; other times it’s because they’ve fallen out of grace or been overused. And yet, if fashion has taught us anything, it’s that everything comes back at some point or another; it’s just a matter of time. Case...

While seeing fall product on the cusp of the fall season makes sense practically, one can’t help but feel somewhat confused by the contrast of other spring-infused collections that are being shown simultaneously. This voluntary mix-up was definitely present in Tom Ford and Thakoon’s ready-to-wear...
While seeing fall product on the cusp of the fall season makes sense practically, one can’t help but feel somewhat confused by the contrast of other spring-infused collections that are being shown simultaneously. This voluntary mix-up was definitely present in Tom Ford and Thakoon’s ready-to-wear shows. Dark, moody, and autumnal color schemes set the tone that fall is indeed upon us - not...

Across all the fashion capitals and all the menswear catwalks, you haven’t been able to move for bombers. They have been everywhere.

Across all the fashion capitals and all the menswear catwalks, you haven’t been able to move for bombers. They have been everywhere. Sometimes they’ve been more baseball, other times more blouson or varsity, but the overriding message is the same: guys, your wardrobe needs, really needs, a bomber jacket. Who to look to? Louis Vuitton had some seriously beautiful and neat little luxe numbers in...

Travel: almost every designer made reference to it this season across all of the fashion capitals; it was the big overarching theme. Hardly surprising, really, that everyone is seeking solace somewhere else right now. Escape is the ultimate antidote when real life brings you down and all you need to do is step inside your wardrobe to have that rectified. So where did everyone go? And who should...

What kind of bride are you? That’s a question that can immediately be answered by your reaction to the couture collections and the parade of gowns that come down the catwalk with them.

Couture is the ultimate celebration of craft, the work of the hand, the artisan, the time and detail and love that go into each piece. There’s no doubting that and it’s a wonderful thing to behold. There is just one tiny matter that trips up those of us who aren’t there on a shopping basis: less a case of having nothing to wear, it’s not having an occasion to wear said creations. Red carpet...

For the most part, dresses are the mainstay of couture. Pretty princess dresses. There’s no end of them to fulfil any kind of whimsical fairy-tale fantasy you may have. But they’re not for everyone.
