DESIGNER DAILY: Raquel Allegra

Edited by

You know that distressed clinky t-shirt-cum-soft-cloud of sheer that’s been spotted everywhere? It all started with Raquel Allegra, when she found the purpose for her idle hands: seam ripping her cotton jersey tees into plush distress. When we caught up with Allegra nearly a year ago, she told us about her epic trunk show, where Nicole Richie duked it out with Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen for their faves. And how she outfitted Lady Gaga’s Judas video - the dance troop and Mother Monster herself. Her aesthetic has permeated, and now we peek in again at the laidback ease of Spring 2012. Though the ripped shirt may always be her staple, we’re feeling the dyed blazers for a cheerful summer.

INTERVIEW: Designer Raquel Allegra Makes Gaga Lose Her Sh*t

Edited by

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have fought Nicole Ritchie for these clothes. Lady Gaga demanded they be in her music video. Barney’s clients were lusting over them before they were even on the rack. Prisoners were wearing these before anyone. Wait, what? Yes, LA based designer Raquel Allegra has created these very garments. Using meticulously sifted clothing from massive rag warehouses, she uses her own brand of deconstruction to turn old t-shirts into cloud-like textiles that drape like butter. Find out her secrets, and what it was like to make Mother Monster “lose her shit” over her designs.

Gaga on the Edge of a Glorious Breakdown

Edited by

Still in the throes of her Passion for “Judas”, I was caught unawares by Lady Gaga‘s latest video for “The Edge of Glory.” Most disarming is the video’s scaled-down approach; a decidedly less opulent production than her last two videos. Let’s see, there’s only one outfit – Versace (yet another surprise: nary a Mugler in sight), no throng of dancers and a simple set with only recently hospitalized E. Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons present. The song and accompanying video are a little Pat Benatar meets Samantha Fox with Gags’ usual helping of Madonna. Check out Gaga’s latest after the jump!

Lady Gaga is the New Jesus. Amen Fashion.

Edited by

On the runway. Dressed in his best. Amen fashion. Black Jesus Lady Gaga. Her body is a sanctuary. She’s physically crafted to be as fitted as McQueen. She’s as free as her hair, a blonde high heeled feminist enlisting femmes for this. She’s gonna lace up her boots, throw on some leather and cruise down the street that she loves in her fishnet gloves. She’s a Bad Kid. She’s The Queeeen. Most importantly: She was Born This Way.

If none of that sounds familiar, then you’d best get listening to Lady Gaga’s new album. It’s out today! Go buy it, I’ll wait…….. okay good you’re back. Now while you’re waiting for it to download, take a glimpse inside the Born This Way digital booklet of album art. That is one baaaaad Mother Monster.

Lady Gaga is the New Jesus. Amen Fashion.
