INDIE REWIND: 10 Trends Americans Have Run into the Ground

Edited by

When it comes to fashion, America has a checkered history of following trends. Sure, there have been the good — the Brit-Mod 60s, the wrap-dress 70s, the coke-bag 80s — but for every Mondrian shift there’s a Juicy Couture tracksuit. Whether imported or homegrown, these trends have created a blight on American fashion. By pointing them out FashionIndie hopes to do our patriotic duty to right the sartorial wrongs of our fore-mothers and fathers and build a better, fiercer future for the children. WON’T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN?!

Eat, Sleep, HOUS & Dance to Electronic Beats

Edited by

Richard Wheeler has seen it all when it comes to dance club door policies. The former bouncer at Lavo had to keep a straight face while turning away disappointed club-goes, just because they had no style. As he loomed over the sea of Ed Hardy and Affliction tees, he realized there wasn’t a brand that catered to electronic dance music fans. It was at that moment HOUS was born. The  t-shirt line uses humor and clever graphics to build a bridge between music and design and has already been worn by influential DJs, celebrities and tastemakers. Channel your inner raver and see both the men’s and women’s lookbooks after the jump.

Choose These Oils Over SPF

Edited by

Getting a tan without getting a burn, for most, is a trick. Even trickier because we know that a burn is far worse than just a few days’ redness; it can lead to issues like cancer and wrinkles, and we simply don’t need that. If you’re like me, and you still love the feel of an oiled up bikini body and its end-of-day results, but know that it’s a bad bad thing, there are alternatives. There are products out there that are meant to enhance your browning capacity and cap the sunburn. Better yet, use an SPF 30 sunscreen as a base layer, and slick up afterwards. There are reasons you want both. So while you’re tanning under the Manhattan sun, here are some oils to try over the SPF.

The 10 Worst-Dressed Designers

Edited by

You would expect a  dentist to have healthy teeth, a math teacher to be able to do long division and a police officer to follow the law, wouldn’t you? So why are some designers so gosh darn sartorially-challenged? Though they may make beautiful clothing for a living, some of fashion’s greatest designers have some of the worst personal style. Just because they have a great eye for detail doesn’t mean they use that eye when getting ready in the morning, so here’s a spiteful list of 10 designers who could probably do well by rifling through their collections rather than their closets.

FASHION SCRAMBLE: Something Smells Funny in Vegas + Reese Smells a Profit + Prince Charles Is Puzzled

Edited by

- This is something I wish I could say more oftem: a Chinese-run counterfeit fragrance operation was busted up in Las Vegas earlier this month. Shaoxia Huang, Shaoxiong Zhou and Shaowu Zhou were arrested in Sin City on March 2nd and they were indicted in Brooklyn on Tuesday for allegedly importing 37,000 units of counterfeit fragrances into the U.S. I was wondering why my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle smelled like wanton sauce.

There are few brands whose motifs are as recognizable as Ed Hardy. The sexy, tattoo-inspired label presented their looks at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim with a HOT show on the runway.

The pieces for women featured signature Christian Audigier motifs in strategically placed prints. Teeny bikinis bore tattoos across the apex, the behind, down the side, in color or monochromatic foil prints. Some studded styles and corset tops made their way down the runway as well.
For men, more elaborate tattoo designs were translated into colorful board shorts.

The ladies were styles with full curls and edgy dark eye makeup. This being Miami Beach, the models looked like they just stepped off a motorcycle right into the Cabana Grande.

Actress/accessories designer Phoebe Price outfitted the models with flamboyant feather hairpieces. (Slide Show coming soon!)
