#NowPlaying in the Timo Weiland Studio

Edited by

In the Timo Weiland studio, nestled in a hidden gem of a room within an über convenient factory, design partners Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein get their creativity on. Wonder what two of fashion’s wonderboys listen to when they work? Or read when they’re not looking at fabrics? Or why empty picture frames hang next to ones filled with art? We did to. So we asked.

Boutique Critique:: Court: Look 1

Edited by

Boutique Critique was taken to Court. I can’t get into the specifics of the arrest, but I will fiercely deny any allegations that it involved Rebecca Black and a finely sharpened object last Friday… Well, the trial ensues upon the lacquered black floor of the Court room, with a film noir NY color palette and western-leaning-California vibes; highly suspect if you ask me. Reimagined t-shirts of many weights and structures intersperse silken black dresses, leathers, sweaters and the occasional floor length chiffon. Though the case appeared to be rather black and white, shades of gray and few jumping hues peeked through as evidence of the brighter buying choices. The jury has been out for the whole week, and they want more proof. Over the course of this week, come sit in on the trial, and help us reach a final verdict.

Guilty of lusting after that jacket? Mention FashionIndie and get 15% off everything on the Court room floor.

Menswear designer John Varvatos is a big fan of strings. Not the kind that dangle loosely from fabric, silly! The kind that are attached to guitars.

That’s why the edgy Designer of the Year award winner — whose ads have included the likes of Iggy Pop, Slash, ZZ Top, and Franz Ferdinand — is celebrating three decades of Guitar World magazine with some really rockin’ window displays at his store in New York City’s Soho.

“As Guitar World celebrates a milestone in the music industry with their 30th anniversary and we celebrate our 10th anniversary in fashion, we felt it was a great way to bring together both worlds in a nod to the ultimate guitar ‘bible,’” Varvatos, who has outfitted today’s hottest players including Lenny Kravitz and John Mayer, said in a press release.

The store’s windows show mannequins dressed in Varvatos‘s signature cool-cat clothing, with Guitar World covers featuring music greats like John Lennon, Prince, the White Stripes’s Jack White, and Eddie Van Halen splashed against the walls behind them.

“In the world of rock-and-roll it’s the guitarists who always push the boundaries and set the trends,” Brad Tolinski, Guitar World editor in chief, said in a statement. “Nobody ever looked better — or more dangerous — doing this than icons like Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Joe Perry. It’s a thrill to have a fashion house like John Varvatos acknowledge Guitar World and our role in creating those indelible images.”

StyleList loves the idea of Varvatos celebrating magazines with window displays — just as long as he stays away from Bird Fancy. That could get messy.
