Since launching their label in 2015, Monse designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia have found innovative ways to bring casual chic to sculptural suiting, season after season.

The 2018 CFDA Award Nominees Are Here

New York City Ballet Puts High-Fashion Costumes In Motion

There's a rumble in the industry, and it sounds a lot like a fashion crowd who craves more than just clothes that walk down a runway. Some would go as far to say that New York Fashion Week is dead, but if you look to other parts of the city, you'll find that twice a year, fashion unfolds on an even bigger stage. We're talking about the David H. Koch theater at Lincoln Center, where each season, a handful of designers create costumes for the New York City Ballet, giving choreographers the opport...

The Blazer Gets A Remix For Spring

Blazers are undeniably having a moment right now. As feminism goes more and more mainstream, the sartorial symbols of female empowerment are getting re-examined and served back to us on the runways. The power suit, once reserved for the women working their way up the corporate ladder (paired with sneakers and scrunchy socks on the commute and pumps once you get to the office), has been dissected and now the blazer is a must-have piece in any closet, as essential as Stan Smith sneakers were a fe...

Your Collection Of Funky, '70s-Era Sunglasses Just Got Bigger

Everybody says the '90s are trending. But what about the '70s? Disco? Studio 54? The colorful era is by no means forgotten — with help, in part, by the rise in vintage — but capturing the true vibe of the decade doesn't stop at recycled band tees. There are suede boots, fringe vests, sailor caps, bell bottoms, and so many more elements to splurge on. But look no further than Monse 's latest premiere for the perfect place to start. The New York-based brand debuted an eyewear collaboration at its...

Raf Simons Made History At The 2017 CFDA Awards

If the 2017 CFDA Awards belonged to anyone, it was Raf Simons. The Belgian fashion designer, who was announced as chief creative officer of Calvin Klein in August, received both Menswear Designer of The Year and Womenswear Designer of The Year, an achievement that's only occurred once before — by Calvin Klein himself in 1993.Since taking on his role, Simons' influence has been heavily felt not just at Calvin Klein, but on American fashion as a whole. His debut womenswear collection in February ...

Why Fashion Is Finally Favoring Designers Over "Celebrities"

Laura Kim was a star student at Pratt Institute. “She could do no wrong,” admitted fellow Pratt classmate and designer Adam Selman to The New York Times . “Teacher’s pet in the best possible way: the perfect draper, perfect sketcher, won all the awards.” She received scholarships from Fashion Group International and the CFDA — and then went on to intern at TSE Cashmere, Donna Karan, and eventually, Oscar de la Renta, where she took on a full-time job in 2003. She rose from design assista...

Everything To Know Before Fashion Month Kicks Off

You know the drill: New York Fashion Week rolls around and kicks off a four-week relay on both sides of the Atlantic (with a pit stop in Los Angeles first this time around). This is routine for seasoned industry players — but the last few years have involved a number of shake-ups to the status quo. We've seen a handful of brands diverge from the tried-and-true, season-ahead runway show in favor of presentations or private viewings, with some test-driving the whole "see now, buy now" approach. I...

What Was Ivanka Telling Us With That White Pantsuit?

Hillary Clinton arrived at Donald Trump’s inauguration this morning clad in a white pantsuit, reminiscent of the one that she wore as she accepted the Democratic nomination for president. It was no arbitrary color. White was the color of the American suffragette movement, and Hillary’s decision to wear it on that night in July was a powerful nod to the women who fought the hard battles on our march to equality. So when she chose it again for the inauguration, it also felt symbolic: It was as if...

The Headlines That Defined Fashion In 2016

Well, 2016 was certainly something. It was a noteworthy year across various industries, including politics, entertainment, fashion, and tech, with connections between fields deepening in fascinating and sometimes surprising ways.Take, for example, how the relationship between Hollywood and high fashion got scrutinized, as various celebrities, stylists, and designers spoke out about the sizeism that can decide who gets to wear what on the red carpet. Then, as the U.S. election weighed heavier on...

Vision of a Asteroid Belt Astronomical Telescope and hypertelescopes

Physics Today has a speculative article that proposes that laser light be used to shape and polish an asteroid to high optical standards. This could create an Asteroid Belt Astronomical Telescope (ABAT). The Asteroid Belt Astronomical Telescope (ABAT) focuses light from laser-polished asteroids onto dual imaging arrays above and below the solar system; other intense laser pulses maneuver the arrays to different locations, thus allowing ABAT to point at multiple celestial targets. Asteroid ablat...

A Shifting Oscar de la Renta Gave Us Some Solid Casual Wedding Dress Options 

The normally consistent Oscar de la Renta show was a bit off this year, likely owing to the fact that the design house is between designers—Peter Copping stepped down in July, and Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, of buzzy New York-based label Monse, will step in for the Fall 2017 collection.

The buzz surrounding designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia and their contemporary label certainly got a boost from last week's announcement that they would be taking over the reigns at Oscar de la Renta (the house that trained them professionally) come fall '17, but their solo project has become its own subject of widespread acclaim.

All The Things That'll Be Different This Fashion Month

Each time fashion season arrives, there's somehow more up in the air than seasons past. It seems like we've seen every fathomable mutation of a runway show or presentation by now, doesn't it? Yet designers and brands continue to tinker with the tried and true (and some might say tired) formats of both showing and selling clothes. Tons of designers are trying "See now, buy now" models," while others are eschewing the the typical wholesale and retailer setup in favor of a direct-to-consumer model...

Here's Who Won Big At The 2016 CFDA Awards

As far as awards shows go, it doesn't get bigger than the CFDA Awards for the fashion industry. And so tonight's event, hosted by Joel McHale and held (for a change of scenery) at Hammerstein Ballroom, was pretty much the biggest night of the year for people in the business. So, who walked away victorious from the unofficial Oscars for the style set?The toniest award, arguably, is the Womenswear Designer of the Year category.

15 Up-&-Coming Designers That Are About To Be It

The fashion industry as a whole is in an undeniable state of transition — major fashion houses are playing musical chairs with creative directors, consumers are getting confused over the fact that it takes six months for products to become available (at which point, it's not even exciting or new anymore), and luxury designers are growing fatigued trying to keep up with a speedy cycle that barely leaves room for creativity. It's difficult to know what exactly that all means for the future of the ...
