Designer Daily: Gemma Redux

Edited by

From a coveted studio in the CFDA Incubator, come the rough rocking metals and natural stones of Gemma Redux. The designer behind the smashing brand is Rachel Dooley, a former engineer and law student who took a short break from studying for the Bar exam to make a necklace, and never went back.

Documenting Theyskens road from precocious art star to his four seasons at Rochas and finally his brilliant but short-lived tenure at Nina Ricci was photographer Julien Claessens, whose haunting photos add another dimension to Theyskens sartorial creations and form the backbone for The Other Side of the Picture (Assouline, 2010).

When it comes to flip-flops, I think they should just be thrown atop a burning trash heap since that’s the only good they’ll do anyone. But for some reason, fashion is embracing the Teva, the ugliest men’s footwear this side of a fluorescent Croc.
