Harper’s “Bazaar” Attempt to Make Me Spend Money

It’s hard for a hardened fashionite to admit love to a single publication, being that there are sooo many options, and no mere mortal has the time, or the bank account, to purchase and privy all the amazing editorials produced each month in lesser known titles like Acne Paper or Purple Mag, which is why it’s refreshing for me to be able to admit that Harper’s is my hands down, favorite big box, kind of the equivalent of Walmart to Dazed & Confused‘s mom & pop, fashion glossy.

London Fashion Week: Mary Katrantzou Fall 2012

Mary Katrantzou is currently flying high. Her wild, colorful prints have made their way to fast fashion in her collaboration with Topshop. She just debuted her Fall 2012 collection at London Fashion Week, and the British designer’s sensational prints are causing a seriously intriguing eye trip among critics. Inspired by fashion superstar Antony Price, famous for dressing Roxy Music, her dramatic silhouettes went from the peplum and hourglass to corsets and godet skirts, the latter extremely difficult to print on in a uniform manner. We always love Katrantzou’s eye twirling collections, and this is no exception. See the gallery after the jump.

10 Essentials Elements for (an Unseasonably Warm) New York Fashion Week

Twice a year, we at FashionIndie raid, ransack and rape our closets in an effort to  put together a compelling look that will have all other fashionistas wishing they had stayed the eff home. In September, the last vestiges of summer make it slightly easier to turn it proverbially out, but February usually requires a lot of layering and the outfit often has to be cruelly covered up to stave off the ravages of winter. This  New York Fashion Week, however, the winter has been suspiciously mild. Temperatures have barely dipped below freezing and nary a snow flake has dropped in weeks. So let’s just ignore our impending doom thanks to the totally buzz-killing reality of global warming and instead focus on what matters: dressing for the Tents. Here are 10 staples — 5 for the guys and 5 for the gals, but feel free to mix and match since we actively don’t subscribe to gender constructs — for NYFW.
