The turmoil of the last twelve months seems to have eliminated trends from fashion, with moods and desires almost impossible to track on a global scale. But one phenomenon still seems poised to dominate 2021: vintage clothing, or “archival fashion,” as the cognoscenti call it. (Funny, that, because “vintage” was developed as the snob’s alternative to “used” and “thrifted.”) Archival, a notch above vintage, is distinguished by the piece’s place in fashion history–it appeared o
The Milan men’s fashion week which closed today was another video festival, so its commercial link to the Milan Fashion Film Festival came rather naturally. When life gives you social distancing and travel bans, make fashion films and stream audience-less shows and presentations. This is simply the state of affairs in January 2021 — lamentations are pointless. Under normal circumstances, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons’ second outing as a creative duo would surely have demanded
This is no time to show off, or for extreme exuberance. It’s more time for intimacy, according to Prada co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons. With this in mind, they chose long johns as the defining garment in their charming, intriguing fall lineup. It was totally unexpected, and isn’t designer fashion here to surprise us? As Prada explained during a press conference following the digital show, long johns have different connotations. “It can look romantic, sexy,

Vans has once again partnered with New York’s Museum of Modern Art for a collaboration paying tribute to four celebrated artists. After September’s release, the two partners now celebrate the work of Edvard Munch, Jackson Pollock, Lyubov Popova and Faith Ringgold. The four artists’ work has been transported onto signature Vans silhouettes. This includes an Era featuring Munch’s world-famous 1895 work The Scream, while Jackson Pollock’s One: Number 31 from 1950 appears on the
Men’s wear shows in Europe this lockdown season may be virtual, but the dominant California vibe is very real. We have seen the future of European fashion, and it is California. Peering out from behind the curtain of a long lockdown, designers in Paris and Milan seemed unanticipatedly hopeful during the digital shows this past week. It was not so much that they were willing to forgo the inimitable theater of the fashion show as ready to embrace the accelerated alterations in
The last few years have seen an explosion in men’s fashion, both in a monetary and cultural sense. The menswear market as a whole has been growing faster than women’s, though it remains smaller overall. In 2018, Balenciaga said millennial men are among its biggest sales drivers and Euromonitor estimated that men’s would continue to outpace women’s at least until 2022. And thanks to the flourishing crossover between streetwear and luxury led by designers like Virgil Abloh and
In Paris, Virgil Abloh, Jonthan Anderson, and Sies Marjan are helping menswear outgrow its hype era. For a brief moment on Wednesday, Paris Fashion Week resembled nothing so much as a five year old’s birthday party, or maybe Coachella: guests descended into a huge pit filled with balloons that served as the seating arrangement for Y/Project, bouncing balloons at one another like we were all morons in the Nostalgic Rave Tent (brought to you by Canada Goose!). In the center of
