The avant-garde design duo Viktor & Rolf sent stiff, A-line gowns of colorful, layered tulle down the catwalk during their recent Couture show in Paris, aptly title Fashion Statements.

18 uber-feminine gowns were covered in a slew of millennial-ironic slogans like I’m Not Shy I Just Don’t Like You, No Photos Please, and F* This I’m Going to Paris.

The dresses went viral on social media, shared widely across every fashion magazine and meme-maker’s Instagram account.

One creation, in particular, caught our eye. Model Laura Toth marched down the runway in a neon-green creation with a giant cannabis leaf and the word Amsterdam joined the parade of Fashion Statements, perhaps a nod to the current global change of attitudes toward cannabis.

Yet the designers said they weren’t imposing meaning onto the pieces, leaving them open for interpretation.

“To what extent can you say something with clothing, literally,” the designers said backstage.

The final look from the show was an enormous black gown with the words I Want A Better World, which seems to summarize the tone of the Fashion Statements collection — and of the current social climate.

Vans to Reissue Limited Edition “Fast Times” Iconic Checkerboard Slip-On

Published

on

Checkerboard Slip-On
PGOTO | Vans

Vans’ Classic Slip-On debuted in 1977, with the Checkerboard Slip-On being introduced in the early eighties after the Van Doren’s noticed kids drawing checks all over their shoes. Shortly thereafter, the Checkerboard Slip-On became a global icon for the spirit of the Vans brand thanks to its inclusion in the cult classic film, Fast Times at Ridgemont High. For the first time since the film’s premiere, Vans will reissue a limited-edition Fast Times Slip-On through its Anaheim Factory Collection, celebrating the shoe’s transcendence to popular culture and its all-time classic styling.

The Checkerboard Slip-On’s film appearance cemented Vans’ place as a staple of Southern California style. In celebration of the film’s release, Steve Van Doren, son of Vans’ founder, made a limited run of Fast Times Checkerboard Slip-On’s to giveaway at the Hollywood premiere. The limited nature of the Fast Times design has become one of the most covetable archived styles of the Vans Checkerboard Slip-On. Vans brings back the silhouette in its original design and construction method within the Anaheim Factory Collection.

The Vans Anaheim Factory Slip-On 98 DX uses 10 oz. heavyweight Checkerboard canvas uppers and a higher foxing stripe. Like each shoe in the initial promotional run released in 1982, the new Fast Times Checkerboard Slip-On is characterized by a wraparound Fast Times print along the foxing of the vulcanized waffle sole. The shoe has been modernized for today with a Vans UltraCush™ footbed for ultimate comfort.

You’ll have to act fast; the Vans Anaheim Factory Slip-Ons will be available for a limited time online and in select Vans dealers this March.

What the Big Winners Wore to the 2020 Academy Awards

After a notably predictable awards season, the 2020 Academy Awards delivered some unexpected twists and turns, with international talent taking home some big wins at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

The two stars most hotly tipped to win the best actor categories this year, Renée Zellweger for “Judy” and Joaquin Phoenix for “Joker,” did indeed take home their coveted prizes.

South Korea’s Bong Joon-ho’s comedy-drama “Parasite,” is the first foreign language to take the top prize and also the first South Korean film. It also took best director, best original screenplay and best international film. Previously, only 11 non-English language films have ever been nominated in the category.

New Zealand’s Taika Waititi has made history as the first Maori person to win an Oscar, taking home the gold statue for best adapted screenplay for his World War II “anti-hate” satire “Jojo Rabbit” — which he wrote, directed and starred in.

Joaquin Phoenix continued his stand against fast fashion by re-wearing the Stella McCartney suit he’s been wearing all season long.

“This man is a winner… wearing custom Stella because he chooses to make choices for the future of the planet. He has also chosen to wear this same Tux for the entire award season to reduce waste. I am proud to join forces with you,” tweeted Stella McCartney in praise of the actor’s stand.

Read on to see what the big six winners wore to the 2020 Academy Awards, as well as for the full list of winners.

Tom Ford, Jeremy Scott, Tommy Hilfiger Missing from NYFW

Tom Ford

New York Fashion Week kicks off this week, but this year there are some notable names missing from the schedule after several top designers decided to show in other locations. Tom Ford, Jeremy Scott, Tommy Hilfiger and up-and-coming labels Pyer Moss and Telfar have all decided to skip New York.

By far the biggest blow is Tom Ford, who has opted instead to show in Los Angeles, citing the Academy Awards event date move as a factor in his decision.

“The decision to show in February in Los Angeles feels very natural to me,” Ford to Women’s Wear Daily. “It is my home and has a strong impact on the way that I live and work within both the fashion and film worlds,” Ford said. “This year, the New York Fashion Week calendar exactly overlaps Oscar weekend, and the last time that happened I showed in L.A. and it worked quite well. There is an excitement in L.A. on that particular weekend and the relationship between film and fashion is a strong one.”

Ford took the helm at the Council of Fashion Designers of America back in June. He says that in his role as chairman, “my main intent and priority is to globalize and bring attention to American fashion. There is truly no bigger or more prominent stage in the world at any given time than Los Angeles during the Academy Awards.”

Jeremy Scott, a longstanding crowd-pleaser, is also skipping New York in favor of Paris, the city that launched his career. In a statement, his label said “Jeremy Scott will no longer be showing his fall-winter 2020 collection during New York Fashion Week. In a move to pay homage to the city that launched his design career, Jeremy Scott will show his upcoming collection in Paris in July.”

Tommy Hilfiger has announced that it will present its Spring 2020 collection at London Fashion Week this year. The PVH-owned fashion brand will present both its Spring 2020 co-ed Hilfiger collection, as well as its upcoming Tommy x Lewis collaboration created with Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton.

New York Fashion Week events begin on Thursday, with the official launch on Friday.
