We’re 21st century gals, raised knowing we are societally equal to the men in our world. With androgyny now a fashion fixture, putting power bitches on top, we’ve been raised healthily headstrong to dominate a pair of Doc Martens as kick ass as a six-inch heel. But perusing YourBellaLife.com, I got this momentary longing for a sexual divide in Reena Desai’s article, A Woman’s Power to Charm. Charm is our first and last alluring accessory, and our ancient feminine power may be getting squashed by our current frame of mind.
WWD is reporting this morning that Versace’s sister line Versus is parting with Scottish designer Christopher Kane. With this news breaking directly after Kane denied Balenciaga Creative Director rumors, could this just be a coincidence?
The fashion world was shocked when Nicolas Ghesquière announced that he would be leaving his position as Creative Director of Balenciaga. Immediately setting the rumor mill into gear, Christopher Kane was a name that was thrown into the mix to fill in Ghesquière’s shoes, but the Scottish designer has officially denied the rumors.
One month after Nicolas Ghesquière debuted one of the best shows of the spring season, PPR announced that Balenciaga and their creative director have decided to “end their working relationship“. Taking the fashion industry by surprise, what will result in the aftermath?
Here in the FashionIndie office, we are in love with shoes and have been gawking at all the pairs featured in the Spring 2013 catwalk shows. It’s never too early to get inspired for the new season, so we’ve chosen 20 of our favorites for you to enjoy.
Last spring was all about the florals (ground breaking), so for 2013, London Fashion Week designers are bounding back with something a little more unnatural. It comes from the margins of your notebooks in the days before MacBooks. It comes from wistful daydreaming against boring lectures. These are doodles, and they’ve dropped in, squiggling down the runways of Christopher Kane, Louise Gray and others. See which designers have been super sketchy.
