How to dress for a return to the office | Fashion

I used to think that “going to work” and “doing my job” were the same thing. But since last March, I have been doing my job but not going to work. I work every day, but I never go to the office or to shows. So I guess it turns out that going to work and doing my job are, in fact, two different things.

Back when there were computers in offices but not in homes, you had to go to work to do your job, and so the two activities got all tangled up in our minds. We picture

Louis Vuitton Spring 2022 Menswear Collection

But to the collection. Abloh took chess as one of his organizing themes—for salient, timely reasons beyond the binary clash between the cultures of suits and tracksuits. “The game of chess, as it relates to life. This idea of two entities that always battle in a strategic way. Also, how the same pieces are divided by color on the board, that makes them inherently at odds,” he said. “ I thought there were some great parallels as we come out of 2020 in the cultural context. Then I linked that to the Damier print in the Louis Vuitton archive. So

Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty open-back crotchless leggings aren’t new to the celebrity’s catalogue of lingerie. However, after going viral just last week, the look divided those who are ready to “normalize butt cleavage” from those who aren’t, as people are eager to show more skin this summer.

The controversial item is one of a seemingly long list of risqué clothing styles trending this summer, among low-rise pants, miniskirts, micro crop tops and even exposed thongs. Amanda Sanders, a New

When stylist Eric Daman Instagrammed a photo of the new cast of the upcoming Gossip Girl reboot at the tail end of 2020, it was propelled into the stratosphere of endless regrams and became the center of conversation for many fashionistas online.

Set to release this July on HBO, the new series stars the likes of Canadian actress Jordan Alexander and It-boy Evan Mock wearing updated versions of the classic Gossip Girl school uniforms that some would say not only defined, but set an entirely new expectation for fashion on TV in the mid-Aughts.

For an aspiring fashion writer who

Gender neutral clothes are the next big thing in fashion

But some fashion-lovers don’t identify within this gender binary, and they, and in particular Gen Z consumers, are creating demand for more inclusive and gender-neutral fashion offerings. That’s prompting stores who want to attract their dollars to pay attention.

For instance, teen retailer PacSun’s summer 2021 marketing campaign features what it calls “gender-free” styles, a category it introduced in September 2020.

It includes a new PacSun gender-free, eco-fashion line called Colour Range with a variety of cotton-based staples, such as sweatpants and hoodies. The gender neutral store on its website already features a collection of T-shirts, sweatpants, cargo and slim-fit … Read More

CNN
—  

“There are very early examples of gender bending in African culture,” explains the designer behind the gender-fluid Nigerian clothing label Lagos Space Programme. “Queerness isn’t a western concept.”

Thompson, 30, who uses they/them pronouns, grew up in Lagos and, bar a stint studying fashion design in the UK, has lived in Nigeria their entire life. In 2018, Thompson founded label Lagos Space Programme. “I’m always collaging different ideas, tying all these things together,” Thompson said. “To highlight

Ferrari Is Racing Into Fashion

Last weekend, 100 of the Italian style world’s journalists and tastemakers were chauffeured in black vans to the Ferrari headquarters, a soaring glass factory designed by Jean Nouvel in the small Italian town of Maranello. They sat surgically masked on socially distanced cubes beside what is, on a normal day, an assembly line for sports cars but which on this day had been transformed into a runway.

Surrounded by unfinished cars on the plant’s cherry red conveyor belt, they watched as models paraded by in vintage roadster-printed shirts and organza nylon jackets gleaming like freshly waxed vehicles. Logo-laden seatbelts

These Are the Underground Brands New York’s Fashion Crowd Is Loving

Before second-skin tops officially became a thing late last year, they were all I would see on my daily work commute into Manhattan. Preceding that, before Telfar became a global phenomenon, gracing Oprah Winfrey’s Favorite Things List, it was the bag brand of choice for my Brooklyn fashion friends in the industry. If you notice a style or brand suddenly gaining favor within the city’s creative community, chances are it’ll be the next thing the rest of the globe is watching.

Essentially, what I’m getting at is that New Yorkers are pretty darn good at trend prediction. It’s usually
