INTERVIEW: Creative Director Stefan Campbell Makes Magic at Michael Bastian

Edited by

At 11 A.M. today, Exit Art was bustling with t-shirt-flannel-n-jeans guys with ladders, gold paint, real leaved branches and tree trunks sitting apart, and two Swarovski crystal chandeliers hanging from a rolling rack. This team of set builders were being kindly and meticulously directed by Stefan Campbell, the man responsible for translating Michael Bastian‘s collection into a three dimensional space that garners an emotional reaction from the audience before the clothes hit the runway.  Earlier this week, he removed the front row so Chadwick Bell could have a 14 foot-wide glowing fuchsia runway instead of seven. Today, he’ll be scenting Michael Bastian’s show with Aedes. After speaking with Stefan today, we can confirm that he knows the tricks to making a runway show magical. See Stefan Campbell’s secret tips and advice at the end of the interview. And we’ll go see the show now.

#NYFW Round-Up: FashionIndie’s Faves from New York Spring 2012

Edited by

There’s a definite consensus around the FashionIndie office regarding this season at the tents: lackluster. Gone was the excitement and the thrill of the new and in its stead stood a circus comprised of the old guard impatiently appraising the crop of would-be streetstyle stars and the army of bloggers hanging about as they waded through the muck of the nameless and the irrelevant to find a collection onto which to pin their ever-dwindling hopes . Still, there were a few shows that set the five barely-beating hearts of FashionIndie racing and had our backs aching to be clothed in their bright and bold designs.

10 Reasons Men Should Wear Speedos

Edited by

On the isles of the French Riviera, and all throughout Europe and the Mediterranean, the speedo is King. It’s where both the sexily ripped and the hairily rotund alike sport the banana hammock as common practice. Here in The States, our boys prefer the board short. But, sexily ripped gentlemen, we urge you to see the benefits of wearing smaller swimming trunks. So that we can see your muscly trunks. And for plenty of other reasons that benefit you more than us. With nary an actual Speedo on this list, see why 10 designers agree that a shorter, tighter bikini bottom is highly masculine.

10 Reasons Men Should Wear Short Shorts

Edited by

After a public outcry about last week’s High Waisted Shorts debacle, ladies (and some men) have retaliated. The request? That men will stop fearing their gams and start wearing short shorts. The man’s upper thigh, when shown correctly, can be a beautiful thing. And in the words of one sexual predator lady friend of mine, “It makes men feel vulnerable.” No really though, it takes a man with confidence to try it, and it’s so sexy when you (yes, you) pull it off well. Ten designers agree:
