Fashion Trend Bontok has managed to reach Fever Pitch

When I was a kid, every time my family went on vacation, my mother would break out her fabulously fake Louis Vuitton fanny pack. We have photo albums filled with her posing in New York, Boston, L.A. and Quebec City, a white tee tucked into faded mom jeans and the fanny pack around her waist. She didn’t care that it was so blatantly fake. It was a gift from her girlfriends (before she moved to Canada from South Korea in 1975), and although she did own an authentic LV Speedy, she was more interested in the hands-free practicality of her “travel bag” than the inauthenticity of a perfectly fine and damn-fly-looking fanny.

Clearly my mom was ahead of her time, because fakes have gone from fashion faux pas to must-have, thanks primarily to the high-end bootlegging ways of Demna Gvasalia at Vetements and Alessandro Michele at Gucci. Gvasalia was the first to turn the fake on its head with his high-end appropriations of brands like Thrasher, Champion and Canada Goose. (Legit collabs with Champion and Canada Goose would follow.) He took his logo-subverting skills to Balenciaga via his

André Leon Talley’s Documentary Will Perform at the Toronto International Film Festival

The 2017 Toronto International Film Festival is quickly approaching and we have another must-see film to add to our watch list: André Leon Talley’s documentary.

Called The Gospel According to André, the 94-minute film will make its official premiere at TIFF 2017 on Sept. 8, with Magnolia Pictures planning a spring 2018 North American theatrical release. Directed by Kate Novack, the “funny and poignant portrait” will chronicle the life of the 67-year-old former Vogue editor-at-large, and will include archival footage of André’s illustrious career, starting with his involvement in Andy Warhol’s Factory during the ’70s, according to WWD.

“André has been an unmissable fixture in the front row of fashion for as long as I can remember, but the story of how he got there has never really been told in an intimate way,” Novack explained to WWD.

Of course, plenty of fashion luminaries will be present, including Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Valentino and Manolo Blahnik. It will also touch on two important women in Talley’s life: his grandmother, Bennie Frances Davis, a maid on Duke’s campus who raised André with a strong sense of discipline and Diana Vreeland, who took him on as an assistant for a 1974

Gabriela Hearst’s Prize-Winning Fall Collection Will Make You Reconsider Wool

Taking home a prize-winning piece of fashion just got easier: Gabriela Hearst won the Fall 2017 International Woolmark Prize for womenswear and the collection has landed exclusively at MyTheresa (shop it here). Encompassing pieces as varied as a trench coat and one-piece long johns, the entire range is linked by a common factor: wool. It’s not your grandmother’s knit, though; Hearst was a virtuoso, using fabrications like luxurious, ultrafine Merino wool and a wool-velvet hybrid.

“The idea was to show the ultra luxury side of wool and create desirability,” Hearst told, explaining that the idea of wool as a scratchy, bulky fabric is outdated. “Merino wool is extremely soft and can even be knitted so that it’s lighter than cashmere. They’re as thin as second-skin and can you warm and cool.”

Unlike some collections crafted for the runway or industry review that consumers never see, every piece of Hearst’s prize-winning line-up was bought by retailers. Along with MyTheresa, shoppers can find it at luxe stores in Dubai, London, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and others.

Hearst’s muse for fall is highly specific: WWII Italian journalist and writer Oriana Fallaci. “She interviewed the

Some Things to Know About Hollywood’s Top Residents

One week after Forbes released their annual list of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses, they told us who the top earning actors were. You’ll never guess which group earned more. Or, you definitely will. Turns out, continuing their winning streak, men out-earned women. By a lot.

Emma Stone’s $26 million paycheque didn’t even come close to Mark Wahlberg’s impressive $68 million. Let that sit in: in 2017, the highest-paid actor in Hollywood made 2.6 times what the highest-paid actress did. When you compare the two lists as a whole, things look even worse. The 10 top-paid actors cashed a combined $488.5 million, almost 3 times their female counterparts’ collective $172.5 million.

As Forbes notes, this disparity has a lot to do with the jobs available: the lead roles in top-earning blockbuster franchises and superhero flicks almost always go to men. Wahlberg didn’t become the highest-paid actor working on critically acclaimed indie films; his poorly received role in Transformers: The Last Knight earned him his big bucks.

Following behind him on the list are Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, last year’s highest-paid actor, who pulled in $65 million, and Vin Diesel, whose role in eighth instalment of the Fast and Furious earned him $54.5 million. What do these top three guys have in common? They have big muscles. Also,

How Can a Guava Become a Staple of Street Style

Hosiery walks a fine sartorial line, leading a double life as clothing in public and lingerie in private. Its allure is in leaving something to the imagination. Nothing plays the erotic game of peekaboo better than a pair of fishnets as they simultaneously reveal and conceal what’s underneath.

Last September, Kim Kardashian posted an Instagram photo of her topless torso with black openwork Wolford tights stretching above the waistband of her half-done button fly. Like so many of her social media endeavours, the post sparked a frenzy, and the fishnets-and-denim combo took off. Worn under distressed mom jeans or glute-grazing cut-offs, the look has become an #OOTD favourite of virtually every style darling, including blogger Chiara Ferragni, model Hailey Baldwin and singer Pia Mia. In April, Kardashian’s sister Khloé commercialized the approach with a new style from her denim line Good American that features holes patched with fishnets. Meanwhile, in June, Austrian luxury hosiery company Wolford reissued the Kaylee style seen in Kardashian’s post due to popular demand.

Fishnets are a garment loaded with innuendoes, thanks to their origin in cabarets like the Moulin Rouge. In the 1970s, early punks literally tore them apart, giving nets

Henley from Anita Pallenberg! 8 Vintage Treasures From Archive Stylist Bay Garnett Has Remade

There was something wildly inventive about West London fashion in the ’90s. The legendary vintage scene at Portobello Road Market, stretching from Golborne Road to Westbourne Grove, gave birth to the seemingly slapdash high-low mix that defines good street style to this day. Now, Bay Garnett, the British stylist who helped pioneer the secondhand movement, has partnered with M.i.h. Jeans to harness that magic for a new capsule collection that goes one step further than simple vintage-inspired designs. Instead, Golborne Road by Bay Garnett is a curated selection of thrifted treasures, plucked directly from her personal archive and reproduced for the masses.

These eight perfect pieces represent the crown jewels of Garnett’s expansive vintage collection, lovingly assembled on rambles through Portobello. “It was our way of life,” Garnett recalls of thrifting back then. “It was a really genuine, lovely passion that unified us.” From her home base in Shepherd’s Bush, she would set off for model Iris Palmer’s ramshackle house on the road and from there, the ragtag crew would embark on the hunt for rare, affordable finds—a soft cotton tee covered in glitter stilettos, or the elusive pair of perfect jeans. Many of those

Planning To Start A Store Business Store

Opening a fashion retail outlet is not as easy as it sounds. Just like any other business venture, opening a clothing store can indeed be tricky. This is the reason why you need to have a clothing store business plan. Your business plan will serve as your guide as you go through the twists and turns of starting your own fashion and clothing store. Here are some factors that you must consider and include in your plan.

How much capital are you putting in? This is a very important aspect of the business plan. This will help determine how big and how extensive the business will be. This will also help determine how much merchandise you will be able to initially invest in. The capital stated in your clothing store business plan will also help determine several other important aspects of your store such as the location and the number of employees. A good location choice is important in ensuring the success of your business. Make sure that you are in a location where your market can easily access your products. At the same time, knowing how many people to employ will help you make a good
