Monika Sawicka is One Wild Woman for Tush Magazine

Edited by

Decked out in leather, fur and head-to-toe animal print, Monika Sawicka stars in “Upper Wildside” for Tush Magazine‘s issue #28. Expertly captured by photographer Txema Yeste, black and white pictures deliver sullen cheekbones for miles in and a blurred line of where garments end and city begins. Bernat Buscato set the mood with Valentino, Burberry Prorsum and J. Mendel, some sheer enough to read a runny newspaper. The drama would be less without striking hair by Akki Shirakawa and nearly skeletal makeup by Tyron Machhausen.

When it comes to designer vintage, FashionIndie does not eff around.  We love everything about classic design – the uber-high quality, the meticulous craftmanship, the luxurious materials – not to mention the amazing stories that come with a Lanvin ball gown that is four decades old!  Every outfit tells a different story, and like we always say, the best stories are the ones told in designer.

This Boutique Critique is about the amazing designer vintage store, 1 Of A Find.  Curator and self-professed shopaholic Honey Moon goes on buying trips all over the world seeking out beautiful, unique, impossible-to-get-your-hands-on Hermes, Chanel, Gucci, Lacroix, and Lanvin to satisfy her international clientele.  She used me as a Barbie doll and transported me into worlds I only dream of.  Best part? Her prices are as unique as her collection, so we definitely recommend scooting over to her Brooklyn location asap.  Check out all our amazing finds after the jump.

High Society Sporting & Far East Exploring with Hermès Fall 2011

Edited by

What to do in your spare time while wearing Hermès? Take your pick of the elite sporting activities archery, horse racing or falconry. Or maybe a nomadic journey through China is more your speed, wearing an array of neutral and brightly-colored caftans containing pendant, tassel and quilting details. This is what came from Christophe Lemaire’s first collection for the legendary Hermès house, shown during Paris Fashion Week for the Fall 2011 season. Tailored, menswear-inspired pieces put the lady back in her power suit accessorized with chic mini briefcases. The Far Eastern characteristics in the collection lent a softer touch to strong and boxy leather garments while rich, warm colors accented gloomy grays and neutrals. Whether jet-setter or house sitter, if opulent garb is what you require, this is the collection to seek come fall.

Paris Fashion Week: Junya Watanabe in Leather and Faux

Edited by

Structured and restructured leather bombers walked much of Junya Watanabe’s runway this week in Paris. With columns of fit seams, he builds the strength of the hide and shapes the skin into curves. He played with the typical vision of the leather motorcycle jacket and turned it, not just cinched waisted, but also oversized, caped, bell sleeved and large collared. He faced the stampede of leather against fake fur, the likes of which we have not been seeing this season.  His use of the material can be even more intriguing than the real deal.

Rick Owens Accessory Alert

Edited by

Rick Owens debuted some rather genius gloves today. They are iPhone/Pad/generally touchscreen ready, though not entirely fingerless. Just a sliver of the thumb and forefinger are exposed through leather cavalier gauntlets. They make sense, and I wish I had them this winter. But, alas, that is why Rick Owens created them.
