Zoë Jordan RTW Spring 2020

Zoë Jordan worked a lively, Ibiza-flavored lineup of sporty knitwear apt for the festival circuit — or the beach. Keeping things easy, her signature cashmere tracksuits came in chic ivory tones or bright, tie-dyed numbers, reflecting her lifestyle change from the city in London to that Mediterranean outcrop where the jet-set crowd lets loose. Long, mesh tops with low, drawstring waists came in lizard green or melon yellow, new accents in a universe dominated by pinks and oranges; an Eighties-flavored layer to toss over a swimsuit. Slightly distressed touches and cutout holes added a touch of shabby chicness of the techno-festival sort, including the frayed bottom of a tie-died skirt and holes in the arms of a bright pink sweater that was dip-dyed — a new technique for the label. Also new, a crocheted dress, cut like an extra-long tank top, all stripes. The sportier looks were also striped, including halter tops and shorts, anchoring the profusion of papaya-pink.

15 Luxurious Style and Grooming Products to Freshen Up Your Spring Look

Although the forecast may be anything but warm and balmy, spring is right around the corner. Don’t let the nice weather catch you by surprise in last season’s puffy winter jacket—it’s time to refresh your wardrobe for spring. And while you’re at it, why not spruce up your grooming routine, too? Spring cleaning doesn’t end with your closet; it’s a great time to give your skin and hair a little extra love as well. A few key items can help you get both your style and grooming up to par this season.


The Grooming Essentials You Need If Your Gym Doesn't Have a Shower

Here, we’ve rounded up 15 ultra-luxe style and grooming picks to help you start spring on the right foot.

New season, new scent. Versace Eros Flame, with its contrasting notes of citrus, cedar, vanilla, wild rosemary, pepperwood, and more, is a deep, multi-faceted men’s fragrance. It’s the perfect way to reinvigorate your style and make a statement this spring.

Baldwin Ktho Jacket in Black

A leather jacket never goes out of style, so it’s worth it to invest in a good one. The Ktho Jacket from Baldwin is a great option—it has a classic moto silhouette with an asymmetrical zipper on the front, supple, top-quality black leather, and a quilted lining for extra comfort.

Miansai Mini Single Rope Casing

When you think of men’s fashion accessories, a bracelet might not be high on your list.

Ermenegildo Zegna Cotton Hooded Sweatshirt

This is not your average hoodie. Get all the comfort of your basic sweatshirt top and a big infusion of luxury with this hooded sweatshirt from Ermenegildo Zegna.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Watch

A wristwatch helps class up any outfit, and this example from Jaeger-LeCoultre is really something special. Originally made to withstand polo matches in British India, it features a reversible face that hides the dial to protect it from wayward polo mallets (or any other day-to-day bumps and scratches). It’s a truly unique mechanical timepiece that stands apart from the flood of lookalike watches out there.

Loewe Convertible Orange Backpack

It’s hard to beat the versatility and ease-of-use that backpacks offer, but wearing one often makes you look like a high schooler. Not so with this bag from Loewe—the bright color pallete and calfskin leather detailing make a strong fashion statement. And with a dedicated laptop sleeve and pockets inside and out, it’s a serious hauler, too.

[$ 1,450; loewe.com]

Hudson Made Waxed Cotton Twill Dopp Kit

That crud-filled Dopp kit you’ve been hauling around since high school? It’s time to pitch it and replace it with this fine example from Hudson Made. Waxed cotton twill fabric will keep your grooming essentials safe, and the dual inside pockets make it easy to keep things organized.

[$ 78; hudsonmadeny.com]

Fulton & Roark 2-1 Shampoo + Body Wash

Stop fumbling around with bar soap and streamline your shower routine with Fulton & Roark’s two-in-one shampoo and body wash. With its blend of essential oils and vitamins, it’ll give you a deep clean from head to toe. Plus, we love the scent: Lively rosemary and peppermint will pull you out of that morning grogginess, and cedar and sage leave you smelling great all day.

Versace Sustainable Vintage 90s Logo T-Shirt

This takes the classic graphic tee up quite a few notches. This crewneck, 100 percent cotton T-shirt packs some serious throwback style with its ’90s Versace logo emblazoned on the front.

[$ 395; versace.com]

Dior Beige Cotton Canvas Belt

A belt doesn’t just hold your pants up; it’s an important style accent, too. This cotton canvas belt from Dior combines a classic fabric with a subtle logo print and a unique buckle to make a versatile statement piece for the spring.

[$ 710; dior.com]

Rag & Bone Fit 2 Jeans

A pair of jeans that fit well is a must-have for every guy. These are Rag & Bone’s most popular style, with a slim fit through the hip and thigh and a narrow leg opening. They’re made of Japanese stretch denim for a little extra give, so they’ll keep you comfortable all day long.

Genre: Contemporary

Publish Date: April 12, 2018

Publisher: Katie Lane

Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC


Spring showers make love flower… When Spring Hadley breezes into Bliss, Texas, Waylon Kendall knows she’s trouble with a capital T. And trouble is the last thing he needs when he’s working hard to fill his daddy’s boots as the new sheriff. He doesn’t have time for frivolous fun with a sassy woman who can’t take no for an answer. But when Spring finagles her way into a position as his new assistant, Waylon realizes there’s much more to her than meets the eye. She brightens his mundane life with her sunny smile and kind heart, and he suddenly wants springtime each and every day. Spring Hadley isn’t trouble. She’s a free spirit who sometimes forgets important things—like locking up the clothing store she owns with her sisters. When her sisters get mad and call her an irresponsible ditz, she decides to go on a camping adventure to prove that she can make it just fine without her family. Unfortunately, her Jeep breaks down, and Spring ends up stranded in Bliss with no money. A temp job is what she needs, and she’s determined to get it—even if it means tangling with the new sheriff. A sheriff who is hotter than a jalapeno pepper with kisses just as spicy. But when her criminal father blows into town, trouble begins, accusations fly, and the truth comes out. Can a straight-laced lawman and a free-spirited woman make it to the church on time? Or will a secret tear through their spring romance like a Texas tornado?

EXCLUSIVE: Fendi Works With Luca Guadagnino as Guest Designer for Men’s Spring Collection

MILAN — After working with the likes of Nico Vascellari, Reilly Hey and Sue Tilley, and in January with her mentor Karl Lagerfeld, Silvia Venturini Fendi will reveal today the latest Fendi guest designer: Luca Guadagnino. The “Call Me By Your Name” director has designed a special print for Fendi’s men’s spring 2020 collection to be unveiled here Monday in a new location for the brand, the neoclassic 18th-century Royal Villa.
A longtime friend of Venturini Fendi, Guadagnino first worked with the brand on a video for spring 2006. In 2007, they partnered to set up the First Sun production company, which produced the director’s acclaimed 2009 film “I Am Love,” starring Tilda Swinton.
Guadagnino, whose “Call Me By Your Name” received an Oscar nomination for Best Picture and one for Actor in a Leading Role for Timothée Chalamet’s interpretation, in 2012 founded the production company Frenesy Film specifically for taking on projects with major fashion brands, and he has directed or produced short films or commercials for, among others, and in addition to Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Ermenegildo Zegna, Salvatore Ferragamo, Sergio Rossi, Cartier and Pomellato, and, most recently, Valentino.

The Best Haircuts to Try This Spring, According to Experts

You’ve been asking your barber for “the usual” for too long now. These three styles are trending for spring, but they’re also fairly low-maintenance and easy to wear for most men. Whether you’re going for something with a little length or shorter on the sides, here are the best spring haircuts and styles to consider this season, according to three experts.


How to Clean Up Your Facial Hair for Spring

Fade

Grown-out Fade

“Instead of that buzzed, faded look, where the sides go from thick at the top to sparse, opt for more allover evenness on the sides. It’s a very tailored, groomed look that’s still short.” — Oscar Blandi, celebrity stylist

illustrations by ULI KNÖRZER

Totally Textured 

“Have your barber use shears and razors instead of clippers for a rounder shape. To style, use a foam or pomade and blow dry and shape hair.” — Paul Wilson, American Crew’s global artistic director

Buzz 2.0

Buzz Cut 2.0

“For fine hair, a choppy cut with a little length in front keeps you sharp. For texture, I like Acqua di Parma Serum—it’s great for all the hair on your head.” — Natalia Bruschi, celebrity groomer

Looking for more hairstyle and cut ideas? Here are 10 that always work that’ll help you get looks like Brad Pitt, Charlie Hunnam, and more.

How to Clean Up Your Facial Hair for Spring

If you want to clean up your facial hair for spring, look no further than the 1990s, says John Flemal of Urban Lift Salon in Chicago.


5 Handsome Leather Wallets for Spring 2019

For some middle ground between clean-shaven and a lumberjack beard, heed Flemal’s advice. These three styles shape up your facial hair, whether you want to tame an unruly beard, accentuate sideburns, or rock a mustache.

Sideburns sketch
Illustrations by ULI KNÖRZER

1. Strong Sideburns

It’s a great transition for growing out a fade. The farther below the earlobe, the less conservative. The L-shape is trending, too; try this only with dense facial hair.

Beard Sketch

2. Beard With Attitude

Long, unruly beards are a cold-weather look. Hack yours into shape, leaving it thick on the sides and under the chin, and cleaning up around your lips.

Mustache Sketch

3. ’Stache and Stubble 

If you opt for a mustache, go small and pair it with stubble. Gradually trim a long beard short until you reach desired hairiness.

5 Handsome Leather Wallets for Spring 2019

Every self-respecting man needs a wallet. If yours is threadbare, dirty from years of use, or—dare we say—held together by Velcro, you need an upgrade. (Pronto if you’re guilty of the Velcro…)


The Most Stylish Belts for Every Occasion

Of course finding the right wallet isn’t always easy. Some guys are minimalists, while others need serious storage solutions that minimize bulk. There’s a bevy of different materials, styles, and durabilities out there, so we’ve narrowed down a selection for every man. Here are our favorites of spring 2019.

John Varvatos Star USA Bushwick Billfold

1. John Varvatos Star USA Bushwick Billfold

You can’t go wrong with a classic billfold wallet. This one’s made from cow leather, so it’ll weather over time—developing scuffs, wrinkles, and a rich patina. There are four card slots, so you’ll have just enough storage for your necessities.

Bally Teisel Bovine Leather Coin Wallet

2. Bally Teisel Bovine Leather Coin Wallet

Fancy a wallet with a little more sex appeal? This option is sporty but still refined, crafted from scratch-resistant cow leather. It doesn’t skimp on functionality either: There are slits for banknotes and cards, as well as a popper pocket for change.

[$ 275; bally.com]

Smythson Panama 6 Card Wallet

Taylor Stitch Minimalist Billfold

5. Taylor Stitch Minimalist Billfold

Navy and tan: It’s a classic color pairing that never fails to look sharp. True to its name, the Minimalist Billfold is a slim wallet with hidden card slots to minimize bulk and stretch over time. We love that the wallet is produced via small-batch manufacturing with exclusive materials (like 100% full-grain Spanish cowhide and dead stock fabrics). But you know what that means: You’ve got to get it while you can.

Spring Suiting: How to Get Prince Harry’s Royal Baby Debut Look

World, meet Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the latest addition to the British royal family. He was born on May 6, but his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (better known as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle) revealed his name today at St. George’s Hall in Windsor Castle, the BBC reports. Shortly afterward, the announcement was made on the couple’s official Instagram page.

Gear Up for Summer at This Huge Perry Ellis Sale—Up to 72% Off Suits!

According to the BBC, young Archie is seventh in line for the throne, but his parents chose not to give him an official royal title. Instead, he’ll go by the less formal moniker of Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor. The name Archie came as something of a surprise, since it has no known connections with any other member of the royal family. While introducing him to members of the press earlier today, new parents Prince Harry and Meghan reflected on the joys of getting to know their newborn son.

“He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm,” Meghan told the BBC. “He’s been the dream.”

“I don’t know who he gets that from,” Prince Harry joked.


How to Get Chris Evans' Superhero-Level Style

While their sleeping baby was certainly the main event today, the Duke and Duchess both won praise for their stylish outfits. Many were impressed with Meghan’s white dress, which didn’t hide her postpartum baby bump, CNN reports. Prince Harry was no slouch either, appearing before the cameras in a sharp light grey suit and navy blue tie.

7 Must-Have Picks from Todd Snyder’s Spring Collection 2019

The thing about Todd Snyder clothing is not only does it look great, it’s also extremely well-crafted. Much of it’s made from fantastic materials and clever patterns you just don’t see anywhere else. From supple chinos to killer blazers to Todd’s legendary collaborations, this is couture that’s not just stylish, but made for everyday. It’s affordable, too. And you wouldn’t have to look hard to find gear that’s far more costly and not nearly as high quality. It’s quality fashion made for the modern guy.

The Freshest New Spring Colognes for Men

We should stop making resolutions in January, and instead time them for spring. Everything is uplifting once the clouds clear and the flowers bloom. Our minds open, along with our senses, and optimism smells all the sweeter now than in the doldrums of winter. This season is also when the best spring colognes make their debut—or when the classic ones come out of hiding and add even more zest to the air. Notes of bergamot, lavender, vetiver, and eucalyptus hint at warmer days ahead, which is why we love that they shine in these seven scents.


Good Hair Day: The 5 Best Hair Products for Men

If you’re in the market for a new signature scent, here’s an intoxicating roster of new bottles, as well as some rousing classics (plus one remix). These are the spring colognes that should be on every man’s radar.


The 7 Best Customized Hair, Skin, and Cologne Brands for Men

 

1. Louis Vuitton Les Colognes

In 2018, Louis Vuitton’s launched its first men’s fragrances, an uplifting and dimensional collection of five, called Les Parfums Pour Homme. Soon after, the wintry warming Ombre Nomad debuted, which brings us to Spring 2019. Another collection of scents just launched, and this time it’s a unisex trio. There’s the crisp Afternoon Swim (orange, bergamot, mandarin), sprightly Sun Song (orange blossom, citron, musk), and smoky Cactus Garden (maté tea, bergamot, lemongrass). No two are alike, and any one of them is a bright, buoyant springboard into the new season.

[$ 250, each; louisvuitton.com]

2. Givenchy Gentleman Cologne

Gentleman has been a cornerstone scent since the 1970s, but Givenchy keeps finding ways to innovate and remix the classic. The latest carries an iris pulse, with notes of bergamot and lemon to start, and vetiver, rosemary, and musk to round it out. Whether you’ve followed every iteration of Gentleman or this is your first foray, it’s one impression that will last.

[$ 88; bloomingdales.com]

3. Jack Black Turbo Body Spray

You might wonder why there’s a body spray in this roundup at all. But if you did a blind test on Jack Black’s newest launch—which summons the same scent in its Turbo body wash—you’d rank it highly next to some top-shelf colognes. Its key notes are spearmint, eucalyptus, and rosemary, a light but long-lasting trio that lifts spirits like a morning shower. (We still advise on taking a shower, though.)

[$ 32; getjackblack.com]

4. Polo Ralph Lauren Blue (Gold Blend)

RL’s special-edition spring hatchling is a descendent of the classic Polo Blue, so it has the same framework: Ginger, melon, and vetiver provide aromatic architecture, while it distinguishes and deepens itself with notes of ginger, sage, patchouli, amber, and incense. It’s a stellar spring and summer scent, evoking something like a weekend lake reprieve, or a beach wedding. Lastly, Gold Blend’s blue bottle + gold trim make the same statement as the scent itself: You’re a man of many layers, and you’re keen on aesthetics.

[$ 76-$ 98; ralphlauren.com]

Courtesy Image

5. Hermès Terre d’Hermès

Few “fresh” fragrances are as layered as Terre d’Hermès: It has the crispness of orange, the bitterness of grapefruit, the spiciness of pepper, and the depth of cedar, patchouli, resin, and vetiver. It’s a recipe that reads like a fall or winter scent, since so many of those ingredients warm like a blanket. Instead, Terre d’Hermès plays out like a wind-blown cocktail of fresh sheets and freshly cut grass.

[$ 137; hermes.com]

Courtesy Image

6. Dior Sauvage

In Dior’s spicy spring staple, bergamot and lavender combine to counter the strength of pepper and ambroxan. It’s intended to evoke “the hour when the wolves come out and the sky is set ablaze”, which is to say “Here’s your nighttime spring scent, for the werewolf inside you”. Proceed with reckless abandon.

[$ 95; dior.com]

Courtesy Image

7. Claus Porto #2 Auga Geranium

Lisbon’s botanic garden was the muse behind this fragrance, one of five in a Portugal-inspired collection from the soap, shave, and scentmakers. Bergamot and lavender kick things off, evaporating into the eartiness of patchouli, vetiver, and moss. Consider this your green light to evoke spring—specifically, Portuguese spring—all year round.

The Only Pants You Need This Spring

Fashion comes and goes, but a solid pair of everyday trousers never goes out of style. We love our denim, but jeans aren’t appropriate for every occasion. And chinos can’t take the punishment of everyday wear. We’ve been rocking our Flint and Tinder 365s for a few years now, and can safely report they’re among the most comfortable and durable pants in our closet. Certainly, the most used.


Not a Shorts Guy? These Are the Summer Pants for You

New for 2019, Flint and Tinder’s 365s—available exclusively at Huckberry ($ 98)—have unleashed even more options that make them the perfect pants for everyday. With your choice of Slim or Straight cuts, inseam sizing options, and a slew of fresh colors to choose from, there’s a reason these twills are so appropriately named. We can wear them anywhere, and with anything, every day of the year.

Huckberry 365
Huckberry

We’ve written about 365s before, and were impressed with their softness, versatility, and durability. We also liked their neutral earth-y tones.

Soft and stylish, yet durable and tough, we’ve worn our 365s to the office as well as the bar—and felt comfortable in them every step of the way. We’ve even worn them in the yard and doing light maintenance on the motorcycle. No complaints.

What’s New?

What’s more, Flint and Tinder 365s are now available in inseam options from 30-34 inches, to make sure every guy gets his proper fit. (Waist sizes range from 28″ to 38″). Flint and Tinder also offers up three new colors for 2019, for a total of seven neutral shades that will work as well with a plain white T as they do with a casual button-down. The straight cut also delivers more room.

365
Huckberry


The Best Khaki Pants for Men

But apparently guys had been asking F and T for a slim-fit 365 for a while now, though. And here they are. More snug through the thigh and particularly in the calf, the Slim 365s’ tapered design is slightly more stylish than its Straight sibling. Both options are fantastic, though, and the 3 percent Lycra adds enough stretch to make them both super-comfortable and versatile.

HB
Huckberry

The only downside is, having both in our arsenal has certainly made the morning decision of “Which pants should I wear today” that much more confounding.

With a wider variety of sizes and colors, and for a pant that can surely be worn 365 days a year, Flint and Tinder 365s are worth every penny. We’ve got some on today—and probably will tomorrow, too. Check ’em out.

Get it: Pick up Flint and Tinder 365 pants ($ 98) exclusively at Huckberry.

What to Watch: What’s Making a Splash in Contemporary This Spring

Neon and tie-dyed looks, cargo pants, animal prints, tailored pantsuits and skirt suits, slipdresses, rocker-inspired jackets and grunge are touted to be key looks in the contemporary department this spring. That’s the word from fashion directors of department and specialty stores, as well as web sites, who were polled about what they consider to be spring’s biggest trends.
Here’s what they had to say.
Heather Shimokawa, vice president for fashion direction, ready-to-wear at Bloomingdale’s:
“Leopard print was a huge fall trend and we are really excited about the evolution of animal print for spring with great snakeskin and colorful leopard prints. Our customer loves this print and we will see updated versions on T-shirts, wrap dresses and denim. We are also loving the newer silhouettes for spring with wraps, ties and knots that span across all categories from dresses, belted shorts and pants to fresh swim styles. Wide-leg jean that emerged last season will be everywhere this spring in all lengths — cropped, full and flared. The wash is lighter with a vintage Seventies feel. What is really new is the way designers stretched the category beyond the jean — we are excited about the jumpsuits, tailored denim dresses and skirts that we are

JW Anderson Looks to Eighties Gilbert & George for Spring 2019 Capsule

LONDON — Jonathan Anderson is looking to the Eighties works of Gilbert & George, and specifically their early street shots of East End boys, for a men’s and women’s capsule that will launch Dec. 3 at Matchesfashion.com.
JW Anderson x Gilbert & George is part of the designer’s spring/summer 2019 collection and is meant to celebrate the artists, their take on masculinity and British modern life. Anderson has focused on three of his favorite works by the artistic duo: “Guard Plants” (1980), “Dog Boy” (1980) and “Heavy” (1988).
Gilbert & George’s candid shots of “normal” kids on the streets of London’s East End helped to make them famous, and by the end of the decade, works such as Heavy had become more stylized and reflective of the duo’s love of William Blake’s poetry.
“Guard Plants” shows the face of a boy in military-style uniform framed by leaves and vines in intense primary colors, while “Dog Boy” is a black-and-white shot of a teenage kid flanked by rows of flowers in full bloom. “Heavy” shows three dreamy young men floating in the sky with hair that looks as if it’s on fire.

London Fashion Week Spring 2019: The Trends

London’s designers were in an extravagant mood for spring; Halpern, Matty Bovan and Mary Katrantzou were among those who accented their collections with sparkly, high-shine sequins, added crafty fringes on the hems of skirts and accessorized their looks with dramatic tulle veils. There was also a focus on revisiting and reworking classics, such as the Eighties power suit — as seen on Chalayan’s deconstructed take on blazers — and the quintessentially British trench. And speaking of British traditions: designers didn’t lose their sense of humor printing provocative slogans on T-shirts and sweatshirts in true punk fashion. Riccardo Tisci, who made his much-awaited debut at Burberry this season, embellished the brand’s signature trenches with silky scarves while also poking fun at his famous Givenchy Bambi print.

Nostalgia for Seventies, Eighties and Nineties Permeates Spring

For spring, retailers are playing up the dreamy, free spirit of the Seventies; the glamour and glitz of the Eighties, and the streetwear influences of the Nineties, all topped off with a large dose of logomania.
It’s hard to pinpoint which decade will be getting the most play come spring, but those three recent decades loom large.
That’s the opinion of the fashion directors at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Net-a-porter, Harrods, Galeries Lafayette, Barneys New York, Bloomingdale’s, Net-a-porter and Macy’s. They were asked which decade their customers most relate to and why, which decade is most influential right now and what items are customers requesting from the various decades.
Here’s what they had to say:
Ken Downing, senior vice president, fashion director at Neiman Marcus:
“The Seventies is always a popular decade with our customers because of the free-spirited, wanderlust, the wistful idea of a maxiskirt and a maxidress, the dreamy romanticism of a ruffle and a flounce, and the crafted quality of so many of the clothes, be it fringe, embroidery, crochet or lace. With the Seventies, not only do you get that great, hippie, free-spirited bohemian girl, you also get that touch of Victoriana, which was an important influence in

Notable Models Front Versace Spring 2018 Ads

Prints! Colors! Supermodels! Versace’s ad campaign for spring seems to call for exclamation marks.
Segueing from the strong collection Donatella Versace designed for spring as a tribute to her late brother Gianni on the 20th anniversary of his death, the campaign emphasizes the newly revisited archival prints. The fashion show in September ended with five of Gianni Versace’s favorite models — Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Carla Bruni, Helena Christensen and Claudia Schiffer — posing in a tableaux vivant and walking the length of the runway with artistic director Donatella Versace, which made for the social media moment of Milan Fashion Week.
The ad campaign due to bow on Dec. 18  is yet another tribute to supermodel-dom as the images by Steven Meisel are fronted by Campbell; Christy Turlington; Gisele Bündchen; Natalia Vodianova; Raquel Zimmermann; Irina Shayk; Gigi Hadid; Kaia Gerber; Vittoria Ceretti; Cara Taylor; Birgit Kos; Grace Elizabeth, and Noah Luis Brown. “Naomi had to be by my side for this very special campaign celebrating Gianni….She is family to me,” Versace said.
“It has been amazing shooting this campaign surrounded by all of my friends and some of Gianni’s to whom this collection is a tribute,” she continued. “I felt so many different emotions at the same time, but

Original Penguin Taps Band AJR for Spring 2018 Campaign

Men’s wear brand Original Penguin has tapped New York-based indie band AJR for its spring campaign, to be released in February of next year. Brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met were in Los Angeles this week to shoot the campaign as well as the music video for their single “Come Hang Out,” off their new album “The Click,” a version of which will also serve as the video campaign for OP’s spring collection.

Adam, Jack and Ryan Met of AJR.

“The shoot is some performance and some facial expressions, sort of like acting,” said Jack Met, explaining the concept of the video. “We are at a crazy party, but we are so busy performing that we don’t really notice the party going on around us,” he said.
Adam Met explained that it’s their first time linking with a fashion brand. “Original Penguin has great style, great simplicity and a throwback vibe that mirrors our style as a band. I also like the juxtapositions in the line, like a Seventies print shirt with Nineties pants. It’s sort of our like our music, a post-modern mix.”

Love on a Spring Morning

Zoe York

Genre: Military

Publish Date: June 2, 2015

Publisher: Zoe York

Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC


Single father and widower Ryan Howard has zero interest in the movie being filmed in Pine Harbour or the high maintenance stars staying in the cottages at the end of his lane. He's just barely holding on to the raw remains of his life and the fantasy world being concocted around him is, as far as he's concerned, a complete waste of time and energy. The one bright light in his life is an intern on the set, and their quiet conversations at the end of the day on his back porch. Hope Creswell hates her life, too, which is entirely unfair because she’s blessed beyond measure. She’s at the top of her acting career, a Hollywood A-list star, and surrounded by people that mean well. But Ryan makes her laugh, and cry, and before she can explain her double life, he kisses her.

Theater: Glorious “Spring,” Sugar “Daddy,” Stingy Stein

SPRING AWAKENING (2015) ***1/2 out of ****
DADDY LONG LEGS ** out of ****
REREAD ANOTHER ** out of ****

SPRING AWAKENING (2015) ***1/2 out of ****
BROOKS ATKINSON THEATRE

When Deaf Theatre West came to Broadway in 2003 with its acclaimed revival of Big River, I was bummed not to get a chance to see it. Like many, I was intrigued. A deaf theater company. Doing a musical? What did that even mean, I and perhaps the clueless like me in the hearing community wondered. It sounded fascinating, to say the least. An interesting experiment. I was sorry to miss it.

Now having seen their revival of Spring Awakening on Broadway, I know exactly what I missed back in 2003: great theater. Like an all-male As You Like It or an all-female Julius Caesar, like an all-Asian Death Of A Salesman or any other such approach to the canon, these unified takes on casting or performing can offer insights both large and small, inspire staging and reveal meaning quite unexpected and refreshing. Done as a stunt, none of these approaches mean a thing. Done with purpose and artistry and a desire to find connections and inspire performances, they are revitalizing.

That’s the case here, with the doubling up of key characters underlining their isolation and inability to communicate, with signing becoming as intimate and moving as a whisper, with silence the most powerful moment in a musical filled with great numbers.

Spring Awakening left Broadway just six years ago. And its original cast — Jonathan Groff, John Gallagher Jr. and Lea Michele — left huge shoes to fill. But it’s a delight to see the story has lost none of its impact, the score and songs none of their dusky, moody impact.

Teenagers in the late 1800s of Germany feel unduly repressed. Like teenagers everywhere, they question everything and want to know everything…now! Melchior (a handsome Austin P. McKenzie) is a budding thinker who refuses to attend church and tries to console his sex-obsessed friend Moritz (a convincingly troubled Daniel N. Durant) with the facts of life. Wendla (a fresh-faced and appealing Sandra Mae Frank) simply wants to know where babies come from, something her mother (Camryn Manheim) is incapable of explaining. Hanschen (Andy Mientus, so good in the original cast of the new Les Miz) just wants to sleep with anything that moves. The school they attend –mirroring the times — insists all deaf students learn to speak instead of sign and punishes those who won’t or simply don’t gain fluency as failures. Hearing a teacher mock a student’s attempts to verbalize Latin is haunting. Their parents are dour and disapproving and demanding, when not downright abusive. It won’t end well.

Spring Awakening is a signal moment in musical theater. This is the show that made rock n roll truly belong on Broadway — not as a jukebox musical or as nostalgia or for specific shows drawn from rock albums but as a specific voice and style that earned a permanent place on the stage alongside country and folk and blues and Tin Pan Alley. It’s never left since. Spring Awakening returns just as the show’s creatives return: Steven Sater has School Of Rock later this year and Duncan Sheik has American Psycho in the spring. It should give them courage to see how vibrant and moving their breakthrough remains.

Director Michael Arden honors the original while putting his own touches on it in ways large and small, from the intertwined bodies of students that form a tree to the coup de théâtre at the end which makes use of the show’s gunmetal grey look throughout for a final breathtaking glimpse of a brighter future during the closer “”The Song Of Purple Summer.” He proves himself a director of the first order. The work of choreographer Spencer Liff and the rest of the technical team is similarly inspired.

The signing throughout is just lovely and poetic, often spreading from the person speaking to the cast as a whole, becoming as important visually as the movement or the set or the lighting.

The cast as a whole is sexy and talented, from the moment they come onstage in their underwear to dress in front of us before the beginning right to the finale where they strip back down again, emphasizing the innocent beauty of youth that has nothing to be ashamed of, whatever parents or society might say. (No wonder teenagers love this show.)

Artistically, the production is unified and strong from start to finish. Its weakness mainly comes in some vocals, normally a fatal flaw in a musical but not here. McKenzie is an appealing lead and a deeply sympathetic presence throughout. I worried he didn’t have the power to put across the climactic “Totally Fucked” but in fact McKenzie came through in stellar fashion. While Durant has the turmoil of Moritz down pat, Alex Boniello couldn’t match him as the Voice Of Moritz (and fell way short of Tony winner John Gallagher Jr. who blew the roof off with these same songs). Similarly, Kathryn Gallagher’s bluesy mama take on the Voice Of Martha failed to impress, though in this case it felt of a piece with the unsatisfying work of Treshelle Edmond. (To be fair, the role is brief and not terribly interesting, though somehow Lilli Cooper made something of it in the original.) The great Marlee Matlin simply has little to work with in several one-note adult roles.

Patrick Page and Manheim were able to make more of their various roles, thanks to the many opportunities they had to give voice to others as well. And how did this work, with one actor performing a character and another actor sometimes giving them voice in line reading or song? In general, one simply watched the performer who embodied the character, while the voice or the singing did its work. Sometimes lines appeared on screens or chalkboards, sometimes they were spoken and signed, sometimes just signed but always the visual impact was clear and the doubling or tripling of a line was clarifying and powerful, never confusing.

Both Mae Frank as Wendla and Katie Boeck worked in synergy to create an angelic, sweet but troubled Wendla, the girl who felt herself confusedly aroused by the idea of punishment. The devilishly sexy Mientus and the innocent (?) Joshua Castille had great fun in the seduction scene “The Word Of Your Body.” And the winning McKenzie (an excellent actor) made you believe Melchior would rise above this brutal start to demand a better world.

And all of this discussion of individual performances underplays the overall impact of a show that is truly conceived and performed as a unified whole, with the cast moving in concert and reinforcing dramatic scenes in powerful ways. Arden and the design team work together seamlessly, building the story element by element, overpowering the melodrama inherent in the original play with sophisticated verve, creating a second act that builds on the first right up to a finale that really is a triumph. It was like seeing Spring Awakening for the first time. Or should I say, like hearing it in a new way.

DADDY LONG LEGS ** out of ****
DAVENPORT THEATRE

Few remember Jean Webster’s epistolary novel Daddy Long Legs. It features a spunky, winning orphan a la Anne Of Green Gables and so many other tales, but somehow hasn’t retained its hold on readers. A pity, since the book is a charmer. Still, it’s endured long enough to be made into a film at least four times (including Mary Pickford, Janet Gaynor, Leslie Caron and even Shirley Temple as our heroine) and presumably adapted for the stage just as often.

Those coming to this two-hander musical fresh will find it innocuously pleasant if somehow unsatisfying when all is said and done. Those who have read the book will be more confused, wondering how the essentially bright and witty tale became so quiet and rather mournful. That shouldn’t dim the pleasure of two solid performers doing their best, namely Megan McGinnis as the orphan Jerusha and Paul Alexander Nolan as her benefactor and eventual love Jervis.

In the show, Jerusha is”The Oldest Orphan In The John Grier Home,” as McGinnis charmingly sings in the opening number. She’s 18 and quite clever, industriously helping at the dour but competent orphanage where she must depend on charity for housing or brave the cold streets alone. What more can she hope for? Quite a bit, since Jerusha now has great expectations: one of the home’s patrons has decided to send her to college. Jerusha will go to school and have everything she needs paid for (including a king’s ransom of $ 35 a month allowance — in 1909, mind you — so she can “fit in”). In return, she will never know her patron’s name but must write to him as “John Smith” once a month with a report on her progress.

Soon Jerusha is off at school, making friends and delighting in the opportunity to learn (and buy pretty dresses; she’s not a saint, after all). She assumes her patron is quite old and grey-haired (if he’s not bald, that is) and has the idea he is very tall. So she dubs him “Daddy Long Legs” and writes him far more than once a month. In fact, her patron is the youngish and handsome Jervis Pendleton, the eccentric uncle of one of her schoolmates. Despite his better judgment, Jervis is charmed by her letters. Soon he is re-reading the books Jerusha is reading, visiting her with the pretext of checking on his niece and of course falling hopelessly in love. Jerusha quite likes this Jervis, though he is far from the only young man paying her attention. Yet her sad background worries her.

Could any man of standing approve of an orphan? And Jervis worries, will Jerusha forgive his deception? Can he get her to love him as Jervis before discovering Jervis is her patron and then perhaps, horribly, feeling obliged to marry him? Well, really, have you never read Anne Of Green Gables or Rebecca Of Sunnybrook Farm and the like? The pleasure is in getting to know the characters, after all, not the suspense of their presumably happy fates.

Daddy Long Legs has been turned into a movie at least four times, including the godawful musical version starring Fred Astaire and Leslie Caron. That’s a little surprising since it’s an epistolary novel and almost all the letters are written by Jerusha to her unknown patron. It is, essentially, a monologue. The charm comes in falling in love with this intelligent young woman and slowly imagining her patron is falling in love with her as well. The modest suspense comes in wondering if the handsome young Jervis and her benefactor are one and the same.

This show lacks that suspense of course: we know Jervis is her patron from the start. So here the suspense must come in getting to know him as well, along with his dilemma about when to reveal this double identity. Notably, the songs for Jerusha often pull from lines in the book and feel more specific and alive. The songs for Jervis must be created from whole cloth; time and again the music and lyrics of Paul Gordon fall short. Whether because of clunky lines or confused references to the Camelot tale of the Lady In the Lake or a never fleshed-out backstory of a broken heart, the songs and story of Jervis remain unsatisfying.

The problems reach their peak with his big number “Charity.” Suddenly Jervis is denouncing charity as corrosive, as building up a wall between the giver and the receiver, a wall that can never be scaled. Huh? This is bizarre on many levels. The story celebrates charity and in the case of Jervis, the noble act of charity has done exactly the opposite of what he claims: without expecting anything in return, Jervis has found his wall scaled and his heart opened by another. So what exactly is he complaining about? (The book by John Caird with its hints as to why Jervis is closed-off to feeling is surely at fault here too. We simply don’t know why this man is such an emotional recluse, despite a vague reference to him being dumped for a duke many years ago.)

The songs for Jerusha are better, especially when peppy. But the arrangements and chamber feel of the show emphasize the romantic and even mournful undertones of the work. Since we don’t know where Jervis has begun, it’s hard to follow him on his journey to love. When they finally meet, Jerusha’s anger and then abrupt declaration of love feels both obvious and undramatic. We know her well, but after two hours we still don’t know him. John Caird has provided a showcase for two actors, not a satisfying work.

And that takes care of the show they made. What remains are many confused questions about why they made this show out of this book. First and foremost, there is the overall tone. The novel is a delight to read. Webster’s heroine is funny and smart and self-aware. But you certainly wouldn’t know that watching this. Humor is modestly present but more often the tone is dramatic and serious rather than exciting and fun. Jerusha is a firecracker and that’s clear from the start of the novel. Instead of “John Smith” as requested, she calls her patron “Daddy Long Legs.” She plays with the form of a letter to reflect her many studies. (Something the show attempts poorly.) The focus is always on learning and how Jerusha discovers a world of possibilities. The real adventure is knowledge, education, trying and succeeding at becoming a writer and discovering oneself. It is not about falling in love and being rescued by a man.

In the novel, when she talks about seeing Hamlet performed for the first time, Jerusha drolly says this Shakespeare fellow really is good, despite her having assumed he was coasting on reputation all this time. It captures both her genuine excitement at seeing a great play for the first time, her self-aware lack of experience (she’s seen precious little if any live theater) but without downplaying her innate intelligence, never more exemplified than by her awareness of how much she has yet to learn. This understanding of her meaning is perfectly in sync with the cheeky, witty tone she sets at the start of the book. But in the show, the lines are split up between Jerusha and Jervis and played straight; we’re allowed some condescending pleasure at her naive appreciation of the Bard, a la Educating Rita.

It typifies the show’s confused attitude towards Jerusha. Yes, the novel will end with a conventional happy ending of marriage. But Jerusha is hardly conventional: she touts education for women, argues for getting the vote and expresses a rather shocking disregard for organized religion if not downright atheistic thoughts (in 1909!). So why when she displays her first new dress do we see a sparkly virginal white one that looks for all the world like a wedding gown, as if her only dream was to be a bride? Being a bride is quite the last thing on her mind. She wants to be a writer and a reformer and a citizen, thank you very much. The novel describes Jerusha first buying SIX new dresses — she describes them all and none of them are white. Yes, white is an appropriate color for a woman her age when stepping out, but seeing it sends entirely the wrong signal.

Similarly, the production design sets all the action in Jervis’s world since we’re nominally in the library where he reads her letters. Fine enough and it’s a warm inviting room for any booklover. When Jerusha heads to a farm towards the end of act one, the windows are opened wide and the light streams in to indicate clear country air. Good. But in the second act, those windows are left open throughout. I kept thinking, are we back in the country?

The one unquestionably dated element of the book is that Jerusha often calls her benefactor “Daddy.” It’s forgivable since she imagines he is in his eighties and never had a father of her own. But since we have modern ears and sense her benefactor and her true love will be one and the same quite soon, it’s creepy to readers of today. She also has many other nicknames for him so this dated wording is easily fixed for the show. And yet, bizarrely, they remain adamantly faithful to the book and have Jerusha call him Daddy quite often. (Yes, “Daddy” is easier to fit into songs but that’s no excuse.)

And finally, in a perverse reversal, they ignore the book — and indeed every other adaptation of the novel I’m aware of — and call our heroine “Jerusha” from start to finish. Now Jerusha is a horrible name and it was randomly chosen for her at the orphanage, just one sign of many that reform is needed. As soon as she gets the chance, Jerusha dubs herself “Judy.” Wouldn’t you, given a name like Jerusha? Even in 1909? She announces this name change in the third or fourth letter of the book. It echoes what every reader has been thinking and proves early on that Judy nee Jerusha is an independent, confident, spunky sort thoroughly deserving our admiration. And of course “Judy” works much better in lyrics. Instead we have Jervis singing about “Jerusha” and how much he loves “Jerusha” and adores “Jerusha” and we think, couldn’t you give her a nickname please? Jerusha may be the least romantic name around and since Jerusha herself changes it to Judy and every other adaptation has eagerly done the same, it remains unfathomable as to why this show doesn’t. “Daddy” is a little icky but “Jerusha” is downright unforgivable. Certainly Jerusha would never approve.

REREAD ANOTHER ** out of ****
THE BRICK IN BROOKLYN

Having recently seen the Gertrude Stein children’s book The World Is Round turned into a captivating evening of theater, I was intrigued by Target Margin tackling her rarely performed 1921 puzzler Reread Another A Play To Be Played Indoors or Out I Wish To Be A School. A stage filled with detritus from a party long over is the setting. The game cast composed of Clare Barron, Purva Bedi, Ugo Chuckwu (and honorary cast member and sound man Jesse Freedman) give their energetic all, led by director David Herskovits. It’s not enough.

If the title alone makes you wary, stay away. If you’re willing to give a talented cast your focused attention, you will be rewarded with some potent imagery, some poignant moments where leaves are falling and music is playing and emotion is conjured out of thin air.

But you soon realize the text is stuff and nonsense. Without some structure imposed on it by the director, without discovering some internal rhythm that makes it sing, it remains a disconnected series of bits. Snatches of dialogue, ideas proffered up then batted away, word play that soon becomes work — it’s all here, unfortunately, and nothing more. Still, one respects the attempt, the dedication to following wherever the author leads, especially when it’s clear that — as a dramatic work — the author has led you astray.

Tom Ford Taps a Lady: Gaga to Appear in Designer’s Runway Video for Spring 2016

LONDON — Tom Ford is taking to the small screen to showcase his spring 2016 collection, putting paid to speculation that he was skipping the show season altogether.
The designer has tapped Lady Gaga to appear in the film, a runway video of the collection, which was shot by Nick Knight. The online video will be released to some editors in the early hours of Friday, and everyone will be able to view it at 1 p.m. CET on the designer’s Web site.
Ford told WWD: “Instead of having a traditional show this season, I decided to try something new. I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online.”
Ford’s choice is no shocker. The designer-turned-film director is in full production for his second big-screen effort, “Nocturnal Animals,” and will be shooting that until the end of November. The film stars Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal, and is an adaptation of the 1993 novel “Tony and Susan” by Austin Wright, which is a novel within a novel. The movie is due for release next year.
The all-star cast also includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Armie Hammer, Isla Fisher, Kim Basinger, and costume design

London: Designer Inspirations, Spring 2016

LONDON — From Balkan gypsies and Balinese textiles to hot Havana and Seventies Honolulu, designers took inspiration from all around the globe.
 
Mary Katrantzou
“Balkan gypsies and the magical realism portrayed in Kusturica’s ‘Time of the Gypsies’ — a film that demonstrates the traditional Romani culture, but also explores the influence of Eighties pop culture and its ability to permeate even the most isolated of cultures. This collection explores the juxtaposition between tradition and imposing modernity, and the dialogue between them.”
 
Margaret Howell
“The color is crisp, the clothes are casual. A graphic simplicity of one color set against black or white. Swiss cotton shirting, opaque but fine and papery to the touch. Cool Irish linens from sheer to closely woven ‘linen denim.’ The waist is emphasized with oversize trousers secured with an English bridle leather belt. Skirts are shorter and also focus on the waist, with a gentle A-line silhouette. Refined but sporty, the clothes are teamed with athletic sandals and white canvas shoes for a youthful spirit.”
 
Julien Macdonald
“I have taken a journey through the incredible island of Bali. I have been inspired by the intricate Indonesian textiles and paintings and the breathtaking natural beauty. The collection is bold and graphic with opulent embellishments and

Harlem Fashion Row Hosts Style Awards and Spring 2016 Runway Show

Harlem Fashion Row, which showcases emerging designers of color, hosted its style awards and spring 2016 runway show at Pier 59 on Thursday night. Mary J. Blige showed her support in the front row and honorees included actress Tracee Ellis Ross (daughter of Diana Ross), designer Azede Jean-Pierre, stylists Rachel Johnson, Misa Hylton and Groovey Lew, TV host Bevy Smith, InStyle editor Kahlana Barfield and Macy’s.
“Thank you for a moment like this, where we can all be together celebrating each other,” Ross told the crowd while accepting the Icon 360 award, in recognition of her paving the way for diversity in film and fashion. “I’m so grateful to be here. I just want to see the clothes!”
After the awards, three designers — The Fashion Deli, M-Sew and Fe Noel — sent their spring collections down the runway. “My objective was to present an alternative narrative to African design,” explained Thulare Monareng of The Fashion Deli, a retail platform for African designers. “From what I see, there’s this one-dimensional idea of what African design is, which is very print- and wax print-based.”
London-based, Bermuda-born Meagan S.E. Wellman showed her M-Sew collection after winning Bermuda Fashion Festival’s local designer showcase last month. Her spring vision took

Pantone’s Top 10 Colors for Spring 2016 Hint at Calm

Pantone’s Top 10 colors for spring are meant to ease the daily grind. There’s a psychological reason for that, according to Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman.
“The fact that technology has gotten so overwhelming and so 24/7 has really created a great part of the need for these comforting, softer colors. Technology plays a huge part in people feeling like they want to stop the world and get off,” she said. “At the same time, we can’t deny that global doors are opening — as in Cuba and other south-of-the-border places.”
How else to explain Rose Quartz as this season’s number-one color for women and men? Other soothing shades can be found in the remaining top-five hues — Peach Echo, Serenity, Snorkel Blue and Buttercup. The second half of the top 10 — aqua Limpet Shell, Lilac Gray, warm red Fiesta, Iced Coffee and Green Flash — hint at other kinds of reprieves and allow for some unexpected color combinations. In addition, the healthy art world has sparked interest in some of the unexpected hues. Designers also referenced colors favored by Matisse and Picasso, which have had blockbuster New York shows in the past year or so, and Frank Stella,

Fashion East Names Spring 2016 Women’s Wear Lineup

LONDON — Fashion East, the London non-profit organization that showcases emerging designers’ collections, has detailed its women’s wear lineup for spring 2016.
The three labels that will host presentations on Sept. 19 in London are Caitlin Price, Richard Malone and This is The Uniform.
Price is showing for the second time as part of Fashion East, after making her debut with the collective in February. Then, the Central Saint Martins MA graduate showed a collection that melded 19th-century period details with sportswear, as in duchesse satin tracksuits appliqued with rosettes.
Richard Malone and This is The Uniform are both showing as part of Fashion East for the first time. Malone is graduate of Central Saint Martins’ BA fashion program, where he won the LVMH Grand Prix scholarship in 2013, while This is the Uniform is designed by Jenna Young, who graduated in fine art textiles from Goldsmiths University in London.
Lulu Kennedy, Fashion East’s director, commented that “all three designers are strong-minded individuals and their girl/woman knows what she’s about,” she said.
The spring 2016 season marks Fashion East’s 15-year anniversary of showing at London Fashion Week, and 12 years of Topshop supporting the showcase.

William Fan RTW Spring 2016

German-Chinese designer William Fan’s second collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin saw him stylistically deconstructing traditional and modern-day Hong Kong. The show opened with a cheesy song by Eighties Chinese pop queen Teresa Tang — changed into modern beats to create an appropriate prelude to his men’s and women’s “Welcome to Jade Garden” collection.
Obis were a main style element, wrapped alone as tops, around tunic shirts and dresses, and even under a trenchcoat. Loose tailored pants and wide shirts in shades of dark blue and gray in stripes and surprisingly wintery checks had edgy cuff slits, and boxy tailored jackets and coats had sleeves slit at the shoulders, turning them into sleeveless numbers.
Not to be overlooked was a trenchcoat in the same reflector material used for biking attire. Fan also showed sleek silk and linen mandarin ensembles, with almost unseen Chinese buttons and feathers, in a sequence of light yellow, jade and purple. His accessories, too, played with Chinese motifs: gold ear discs and jade-and-gold bangles and necklaces for men and women, as well as jade bangles in hair knots for the ladies.

Augustin Teboul RTW Spring 2016

Annelie Augustin and Odély Teboul presented their spring 2016 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin in both two and three dimensions. The German-French designers worked with Ellen von Unwerth to create a series of 12 photos of the darkly glamorous lineup. Seven looks leapt from wall to floor, worn by models in two rooms at the Galerie Judin.
Black and white embroidered elements morphed into tattoo-ish graphics — forming birds and blooms on a long dress with cutouts and a chiffon tank and miniskirt worn with decorated leggings. Light and dark dots popped on a sheer ruffled blouse and cascading skirt, while a delicate dress was tiled with thick guipure embroidered spots. Known for crepuscular extravagance, the duo used denim for the first time — black, of course — formed into embellished and distressed cropped jackets, cutoff shorts, and ripped jeans with crystal beaded slashes. “We’re trying to really build some wearable looks,” said Odély Teboul, though she conceded the styles may not quite be for everybody.

Perret Schaad RTW Spring 2016

Johanna Perret and Tutia Schaad once again underscored the interplay of their clothes and architecture by taking over a public kids’ paddling pool for their Thursday evening show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. Known for offbeat color compositions, the designers blended opaque petrol with lime green, bright fuchsia with bubblegum pink and acid turquoise with dove blue in a fresh manner that also reflected the pool’s turquoise and concrete pattern.
As is their wont, the duo revamped and advanced many of last season’s silhouettes, but they also chose to bring back some signature pieces in their original form. One example: their classic blouse in an abstract pink-and-green print paired with a long cotton skirt in a typically constructivist cut and Deauville-esque stripes. Silk and light cotton were combined throughout the collection, with a long Deauville-striped cotton dress finished with pink silk valances being one of the strongest looks.
Tops made of translucent organza with green 3-D-print stripes designed by Perret Schaad and digitally programmed by architect Kwi-Hae Kim were a novelty. And while the sharp wind that blew in may have been an unwelcome change of the elements for guests, it played well with the lineup’s lavish valances.

Malaikaraiss RTW Spring 2016

Designer Malaika Raiss kept it short and sweet in her off-site runway show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin — the 17 looks she showed for spring 2016  were girly yet edgy. Hybrid and handkerchief hems fishtailed asymmetrically and a long, blush-colored slip dress sported delicate white flared fins at the bodice. Transparent bands made trousers peekaboo, while gossamer layers drifted out from beneath jackets and shifts.
Elsewhere, shirt dresses and tunics had deep side slits loosely secured with thin ribbons, letting them move with ease. Raiss used a blue cloud print for silk culottes paired with a black honeycomb wool bomber, and for a partly unbuttoned long shirt, which also worked as a dress, paired with a dark blue tweedy trouser suit cropped at ankle length. The designer finished with two looks she dubbed “semicouture” — frothy, sheer silk confections with tape embroidery.

Lala Berlin RTW Spring 2016

The threat of an impending storm didn’t stop guests from gathering on the patio of the Kronprinzenpalais for Lala Berlin’s alfresco “Garden Party” show. Fans of the brand should start doing their sit-ups now: Crop tops were out in force on the runway — from bandeaux in a pale cream circular print paired with matching wide-leg pants to a bralette peeking out from underneath a mannish azure-blue blazer with matching shorts.

Designer Leyla Piedayesh also used graphic prints — in a mix of blue, canary yellow, black and white — throughout the collection, on a fitted pantsuit, floor-length evening gowns, silk shorts and sequined palazzo pants. Long, loose cotton broderie-anglaise dresses with thin straps were shown in black or white and dipped sweetly at the back, but were a little too transparent to be properly demure. Lala also gave a new edge to her signature knitwear this season. The hems of a black-and-white knitted tunic were left frayed and worn over a matching skirt with tiered woolen tassles for extra dimension.

Steinrohner RTW Spring 2016

Sometimes a dozen looks is all you need to make a splash, as Steinrohner’s “Relieve the Reef” stage presentation at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin aptly demonstrated. Berlin designers Inna Stein and Caroline Rohner dived into an underwater world of tentacled jellyfish, waves and wonders in their latest expression of “couture de la rue.”
Made up to look like porcelain dolls, the model wore looks that were half street-smart and half creature-feature — with tops and dresses animated by wiggling tentacle projections and some crazy wildlife rain gear in clear or black vinyl painstakingly adorned with beaded or threaded deep sea formations. And the duo also cast their nets, stitching up pants in a clear plastic-and-silver mesh. The collection’s prints had a skeletal or fossil-like flair and were styled into easy-to-wear dresses, tops and pants, which is the other side of the Steinrohner equation — one that earned them the Premium Young Designers award last year.

One Wolf Men’s RTW Spring 2016

Imagine Pee Wee Herman on a hip hop safari and you might come close to Agnese Narnicka’s One Wolf men’s wear collection “The Tourist” for spring 2016. The Latvian designer, winner of the 2010 men’s Baltic Fashion Award and a 2014 Hyères finalist, sent her gents butterfly collecting. Each of the prize specimens found their way onto the necks of her fashion entomologists as a realistic silkscreen-printed butterfly bow tie.

For the rest of the gear, Narnicka proposed casually tailored and roomy cotton jackets, vests and coats, all with oversize cargo pockets and some sporting gun flaps at the shoulder. These were shown with stretch cotton fitted shirts, often under slim V-neck sweaters or a boxier three-quarter-sleeve style with gun flaps and megacargo pockets.

The pleated and five-pocket bottoms ranged from really baggy or comfortably ample below-the-knee shorts, midcalf pants along with pleated and five-pocketed baggy, semitrim and jodhpur-fit trousers. Worn all together, and with models walking in platform boots, things took on a wacky lilt, but viewed individually there were pieces with collector appeal.

Dorothee Schumacher RTW Spring 2016

There was a personal letter from Dorothee Schumacher addressed to each attendee waiting on his or her seat at the designer’s two back-to-back shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin’s new, more intimate Stage venue. It was a welcome note, but also almost a manifesto, encouraging guests to try to be grounded and find the path to beauty — and hence paradise.

If that sounds a tad heavy, the clothes Schumacher sent forth from her stage-set garden were anything but. Abstract and tropical flowers — inspired by Japanese photographer Shigeo Goto — grew wild in different sizes and colors in one outfit, while elongated patches with thickly embroidered fantasy blooms added yet another botanic element to looks that nonetheless felt stylishly urban.

There was a length and a volume for all female sizes and shapes, from short, mid and long skirts that swung wide or fell closer to the body. Square little jackets in novelty florals or raw-edged raffia were sometimes cut out at the shoulders as were dresses and tops; lace-up closures and eyelet variations provided further airy effects. As one key German buyer summed it up, “It was all so pretty and fresh, and I loved how healthy the girls looked.”

Marina Hoermanseder RTW Spring 2016

A thousand flowers bloomed at Marina Hoermanseder’s off-site outdoor fashion show. Actually, it was 8,000, and they were leather — wet molded by Hoermanseder and her team by hand. The lovely pastel, neutral and brilliant blue blossoms sprouted from skirt seams and adorned handbags and headpieces. They came sprinkled on shoulders and bedecked the Berlin-based Austrian-French designer’s extravagant bustiers and bell-shaped skirts, also constructed in her favorite material: leather. Hides were punched and perforated, the edges of suede were draped into backless top, and wrap shorts were pinked and scalloped.

But there was a wilder side to this garden party. Hoermanseder is best known for her orthopedic-inspired corsets and restrictive skirts made of buckled belts. Both were on hand this season and yet felt more sweet than salacious, thanks to soft shades and feminine detailing.

While the collection took cues from embellished folkloric garb from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, it also incorporated modern materials. Stiff yet smooth technical fabrics were formed into prim princess-seamed blouses and smocked into peaks on knee-length shorts and a rose gold bodice that had been 3-D printed. A buzzed-about presence since her Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin debut in January 2014, and beloved by performers such as FKA Twigs,

Spring Means Prom!

2015-04-06-1428347291-16960-grandmarch.jpg

April is here, spring is arriving around the country and the end of the school year is no longer a distant speck on the horizon. High school seniors are finalizing college choices, selecting trade schools, filling out job applications, and determining what the next stage of life will bring. Amidst all this is time for some diversion and fun – the school Prom. This view shows the Grand March and dance floor, complete with spectacular streamers, of an unidentified school circa 1950, photographed by Al Heitman.


2015-04-06-1428347386-1385884-oakhall.jpg

These beautifully dressed young women and men are taking a moment to pose for photographer William Bull at their formal dance at Oak Hall School in St. Paul, 1935.

With the King and Queen at the center, these teenagers are enjoying themselves on the dance floor beneath streamers and balloons in this 1958 Norton & Peel photograph.

2015-04-06-1428347523-3038985-fancydress.jpg

An important part of Prom is wearing a special dress. Virginia Mae Hope models her gown circa 1938 before heading off to the big dance.

2015-04-06-1428347579-5606731-displaywindow.jpg

The John W. Thomas & Company in Minneapolis fashioned a window display to inspire young women to buy the latest Prom fashions “for a star studded evening” in this image from 1965.

This stunning gown from the Minnesota Historical Society’s collections was worn by Jean Wigley to her Junior Prom in Mankato, Minnesota. This 1948 gown is an example of the silhouette of Dior’s “New Look” introduced the previous year.

10 Styles We’re Craving For Spring

If there were ever a season that had us itching for some retail therapy, spring would be it. (Sorry, goose-down jacket, but you’re going into the incinerator.) In preparation for those glorious warmer days, we’ve surveyed the market and rounded up our top ten pieces.

The Ankle-Wrap Flats
Look for a pointed or peep toe. And save the bows for your kindergartner–grown women should be tied in knots. Get the look.

The Suede Skirt
Everyday suede is making a big play this season, and not without reason. The plush fabric transforms a simple A-line or pencil skirt into a high-fashion commodity. Get the look.

The Matching Denim Set
The bottom piece can vary (wide-leg pants, pencil midi skirt, culottes)– the key is topping it off with something fresh– like a boxy chambray top or tank. Think of it as the everywoman’s denim jumpsuit. Get the look.

Head-To-Toe Floral Is Our Spring Uniform

Though floral always seems to be “in,” the blooming print is reborn practically every spring on the runways. This season, it’s popping up as a bright and wonderfully feminine print, with and designers like Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Kors pushing the print from head-to-toe. We’re ready to live in an all-floral uniform as sunnier skies arrive.

But this vivid print can be decidedly hard to wear full-body without looking like a busy hotel curtain. We partnered with Nordstrom to round up some ladies who nail head-to-toe floral, making it look chic, effortless and season-perfect. On these women, floral is definitely not your grandma’s print. Better take notes.

____________

We’re excited to try out these fashion-forward takes on floral. Nordstrom is gearing up for spring 2015 with a spotlight on fresh trends like this one — check out what they’re excited about, from petaled prints to strappy sandals, @nordstrom.
