This year’s posse of stylish Aussies captivated us with bright colors, clever cut-outs and, as with this summer’s other Fashion Weeks, a tendency to use formal cuts and silhouettes in casual wear. Their fashion was more edgy than their animals – and if you know outback creatures, that’s saying a lot.
The dandy look has been gallivanting its way down the runway regularly for several years now, but we’re just starting to see it on the streets. Every now and then we see a dapper glimmer of a well-executed blazer/shorts combination, and we must pause in admiration of their confidence. Modest men of the world, why are you scared? There’s nothing wrong with showing a little calf every once in a while. Loosen your tie! Let out your hair!
…your leg hair, that is.
This summer’s movies were jam-packed with superheroes, and superhero movies mean stunning visual effects and killer costume design. Now we’ve made a few super suits of our own. To wrap up the summer movie season, we’ve pulled together 5 looks inspired by its biggest blockbusters.
The blogosphere is filled to the brim with people who have great ideas for clothing but lack the crafting skills to make a garment. The/Studio saw that potential and created a portal to connect those idealists with the production facilities they needed to realize their visions.
How comfortable do you feel buying clothes online? Have you ever received something in the mail and, after days or weeks of anticipation, been disappointed because it doesn’t fit like you had hoped? With new technology, the days of guesswork in online shopping may be over.
Yee-haw! Austin Fashion Week just strutted its way through the Lone Star State, and we were impressed by the creativity and ingenuity of its designers. We perused through the variety of looks and figured out the three most prominent trends so you don’t have to.
Since our childhoods, the Williams twins have been in every other commercial, inspiring us with their finely-toned biceps and plastic-beaded hood-girl hair. They’re still on their game, and Venus Williams has started her own sportswear line that’s due to show in New York Fashion Week this September. To segue you from the uniforms of the Olympics to the fabulousness of Fashion Week, we’re talking about the launch of Williams’ new line, EleVen.
We couldn’t help but think of “Oslo in the Summertime” while writing this article. If you have synesthesia, you might think the clothing presented this Oslo Fashion Week looks a lot like that song sounds – calm, casual, somewhat futuristic and maybe a little creepy at times. There were plenty of new silhouettes to consider, and some stuck out more than others.
There’s something wonderfully tacky about 90s accessories. As hilarious as we find them now, 20 years ago, beepers were the cutting edge of communication technology and no schoolchild would be caught dead without a Tamagotchi on their keychain. To wrap up the last day of our 90s Style Week, we’re bringing you the best recent re-inventions of those hella tight accessory trends you can wear half-ironically (though really, you do love them).
Copenhagen Fashion Week just popped off in Denmark, and in its wake left some notable trends. We spent hours perusing through the many hundreds of styles sent down the runway – to give it to you in a nutshell, we’ve compiled a list of the four most common ones we saw.
BobbyK is not the typical art school snob you’re likely to find in the fashion industry. His desire to face his worst fears, along with a fiery Irish background and condition that causes him to see music, has led him to become a strong designer. His edgy clothes and equally edgy attitude make him a fascinating force to be reckoned with.
Tonight is the FashionIndie 90’s Party, and we’re chomping at the bit to loosen our shoelaces and cut off our sleeves. It was a time when side parts were out of place, and cartoons were at an all-time high. Today, we’re taking you on a stroll through memory lane to outfit you in some Saturday-morning nostalgia.
As much as our refined attitudes and apparent maturity may say otherwise, we here at FashionIndie are just a bunch of (somewhat) grown-up 90’s kids. In celebration of the resurgence of 90’s style (thanks, Spice Girls!) and our upcoming 90′s party, we’re bringing you the best up-to-date translations of trends from the dopest decade. Today’s trend: LIGHT-UP SHOES!
