TAKE TO THE STREETS

· Editorial · , , , , ,

Us Americans love to protest, and that certainly comes through in our style. Street fashion in the big city is more dynamic and bold than ever before; take to the streets and disrupt the establishment.

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.

But now Sybilla’s back, and she’s bringing the highlights of her brand along with her.

Spring/Summer 2016

· Runway · , , , , , , ,

Yet another Fashion Month has flown by, leaving us with a lot to think about. Sure, there were tons of shows between New York, London, Milan, and Paris. But only a few truly stood out, and even less were exceptionally spellbinding; in some respects, this season feels a bit more commercial and sales-driven than ever before. However, there is always the necessary creativity and artistry that sparks our passion and keeps our interest in fashion alive. So, let’s break it down by city, highlighting the most impressive, noteworthy, and interesting moments of the spring 2016 runway season.

#NYFWM

· Men's, Runway · , , , , ,

For years, the major menswear shows have been limited to London, Milan, and Paris, leading New York-based labels to either pick a different city or show during the biannual womenswear Fashion Weeks. But with the growth of the global men’s fashion market, the Big Apple began to broaden its horizons, and New York Fashion Week: Men’s finally came about for the first time this summer. Thanks to the CFDA, many could argue that New York’s menswear scene would officially be on-par with that of the other major fashion capitals, while the four-day event itself was buzzing with excitement and optimism (and of course, an abundance of street style hoopla, wild after parties, and other fanfare), even after the three-weeks of European menswear concluded last month. So, how did NYC measure up?

The Other Sex

“New York needs a confidence boost.”

Hari Nef is taking the fashion world by storm, sparking a strong discussion on what it means to be transgendered in an industry often defined by binary gender codes. In a recent interview with Bullett, she goes into more detail about distinguishing androgyny from being trans and where New York could use more improvement.

Women of New York

· Features, Runway · , , , ,

New York Fashion Week fall/winter 2015 finally came to a close, and although we’ve still got London, Milan, and Paris to keep an eye on, the industry is definitely breathing a collective sigh of relief. So, what did we take away from the whirlwind of these hundreds of shows from the past week, and what does it mean for fashion-conscious females? We’re not going to go into trends for the new season quite yet. Instead, let’s take a look at New York designers’ visions for the modern woman and what messages are being presented.

Sometimes it feels like we’re drowning in the sea of today’s music, and we could really use a breath of fresh air. Cue The Skins, the Brooklyn-based rock band that’s giving us some tunes to get hyped about.

New York for Guys

· Men's, News · , , , ,

New York Fashion Week has always stood apart from the rest of the major fashion capitals in a lot of ways, one of those being its display – or lack thereof – of men’s fashion. While London, Milan, and Paris each have separate events for the menswear shows, New York has always chosen to do it all at once, resulting in a larger-scale biannual spectacle and a whole lot of action. But now, men’s fashion in the Big Apple might be getting its own time to shine.
