Which Fall 2012 Collections were Made in China?

Edited by

Probably more than we could begin to count, much of fashion is being sourced in China; it’s that sweet sweet price that keeps bringing us back. But now designers are taking something completely different and free from the Chinese: Inspiration. There’s a turn toward the orient that is translating in a traditional manner. Gilded birds glide down Dries Van Noten and Proenza Schouler garments, referencing Song Dynasty’s luxurious governmental garb. Marni dipped a toe into splashes of mod Chinese red, but stepped full foot into kabuki shoes that translated the collection into Mandarin. Josie Natori may take the prize for who took the theme most literally, with obi belts, Mandarin collars and a feathered fan. Meanwhile, Jason Wu twisted his own heritage into Maoist jackets and looks that lean toward what Americans in the 1930s thought Chinese clothing was like. Ironically, most of these designers produce locally.

Designer Daily: Walter Van Beirendonck

Edited by

If you haven’t stood witness to his collection of banners with anime versions of himself riding on rainbows, mushrooms and male nether-regions, nor his future final resting grounds of a cartoon sarcophagus and his ode to all the boys, drugs and fashion a.k.a. things he loves, this trompe-l’oeil culture clashing runway journey may blow your mind.

Chic Coiffure: 4 Fab Hairstyles from Paris Fashion Week

Edited by

We have entered into day 5 of Paris Fashion Week, and it’s not difficult to see why it’s the best of the four. Looking at the beauty trends during this halfway point, we’ve noticed an interesting balance of bold and minimalistic. Big, complex hairstyles took the stage just as often as the sleek and token, sending a message about the collections themselves. Were designers looking to create beauty trends alongside their lines, or did they want beauty to take a backseat and let fashion take the stage? These four hairstyles straight from the Paris runways are divided in aesthetic –  which do you prefer?
