Bringing Sybilla Back

· Events, News · , , , ,

For many people, the name Sybilla doesn’t ring a bell. This is kind of surprising, considering the designer is arguably one of the biggest things in Spanish fashion since Cristobal Balenciaga. Sybilla launched her label in 1983, but after fashion began to move at a rate that she felt she couldn’t keep up with, she left the industry in 2005. It’s admirable to say the least; we’ve seen countless examples of designers succumbing to the pressure of commercial demand in relation to their own creative expression. Meanwhile, Sybilla’s been giving back since her departure from fashion, developing agricultural projects and opening a school in Majorca in order to offer solutions to some of today’s more pressing issues.

The Nature of Nudity

· Men's, Runway, Thoughts · , , , ,

A Rick Owens fashion show is always a big deal, and his latest presentation for his fall 2015 menswear collection was no exception. Titled “Sphinx,” the range included extreme length and dramatic silhouettes aplenty, while studded leather tunics and experimental cuts also had their time to shine. A series of peacoats – though crafted and detailed at a couture-like standard – were more direct than almost anything Owens has ever presented. But that wasn’t the series of items that got the most attention.
