DON’T GET YOUR KNICKERS IN A TWIST – A PRIMER IN FASHION FOLKLORE

Britain, as any American knows, is very quaint and twee. Our stiff, sportsmanlike, covertly racist society has always been supported by a thousand years worth of peculiar beliefs and traditions. Our clothes are no different. Steve Roud dedicates his life to archiving, recording and investigating the country’s folklore, superstitions, and quaint little quirks. If you have [...]

BRAINS WIN T-SHIRT COMPETITION

Phew, that t-shirt competition we started in November ran to nearly two hundred entries. But it’s finally all over, and the winner is: Luke Robinson! Luke’s obsessed with covering his t-shirts in brains: Bleeding minotaur brains, brains in skulls, zombie brains, etc. which makes for some great hand painted shirts. (...)Read the rest of BRAINS WIN [...]

IS MENTAL

Most womenswear blogs are suffocatingly twee love letters to cupcakes and burlesque, but Is Mental is better than that. It’s more worried about German nude-dresses, why beetles are fashionable this season, and shoes with Google Earth prints. It’s run by Amanda Ford who, when not running her blog, or her blog’s online store Is Mental Mart, is a graphic designer [...]

JACKETS FROM THE FUTURE

At the end of last year I visited Stone Island’s HQ in Modena Italy, to see the world’s most advanced jackets being made. While I was there I interviewed the company’s owner Carlo Rivetti. Carlo is one of those guys you wouldn’t mind being when you’re old; he’s wise, generous, definitely his own boss [...]

CORPORATE SHILLING - PENGUIN NEEDS MODELS

Normally I try to avoid straight-up pandering to our advertisers, the understanding being that if you thought reading about streetwear and sneakers was interesting you’d already be on the Fader blog.

AN INTERVIEW WITH THE WORLD’S BEST FASHION WRITER

Tim Blanks is my favourite fashion writer. I can’t read many people’s 2,000 word rants about the anthropological relevance of Alexander McQueen painting his models’ faces blue, but I can read his. He’s insanely well read and just as likely to reference the Illuminati, medievalism, Dune and These New Puritans as he is trends, cuts, [...]

LONDON FASHION WEEK - MAN

The Topman sponsored MAN is the biggest show on London Fashion Week’s Man Day. It’s when three newish labels get to show what they’ve got. The neon under lit mobility-scooter with it’s specially tailored rain cover is part of New Power Studio’s first show. Favourites of Lady Gaga’s stylist Nicola Formichetti, the leather gimp and [...]

LONDON FASHION WEEK - TITS

Flipping through fashion magazines lately, you’d think fashion was more about being naked than it was about wearing clothes. I mean, the latest issue of Love was basically just a pamphlet of supermodel vaj. In light of this, we went to the Christopher Kane party at Shoreditch House and brought [...]

LONDON FASHION WEEK - JAMIE TAETE DOESN’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT FASHION

Despite the fact that London Fashion Week is nothing more than a fancy trade fair, a lot of people seem to be really jealous of the fact that I get to go and take photos. I guess to really get a feel for the clothes you need to have your view obstructed by elaborate hats, [...]

LONDON FASHION WEEK - PAM HOGG

The amazing Pam Hogg’s show was like Vanity Fair’s post-Oscar party where a star system on the invites has been devised to stagger guests, ensuring that the mega elite are separate from the lesser elite.

LONDON FASHION WEEK - FANNY AND JESSY

Fanny and Jessy are a London-based pair of designers who have a fashion week show entitled Vaniloquence tonight, as in today, Wednesday the 24th of February, right now. Well, in a few hours anyway. There is a flier with all the details after the jump, so if you RSVP really quickly you might even be [...]

LONDON FASHION WEEK - MISCELLANEOUS FASHION INFORMATION

The Topshop Unique show was pretty wild. There were deer antlers and fake fox heads, massive bushy eyebrows, chunky knit tights and sweaters as thick as buildings. I guess Topshop are betting that the rural taste we developed for Barbours and lumberjack shirts a while back hasn’t yet died. Perhaps it won’t stop until we’re [...]

LONDON FASHION WEEK - AUGMENTED REALITY

Since late last year everyone’s been talking about augmented reality but it took Carri Mundane, the designer behind Cassette Playa, to grab this technology by the balls and use it to put a show together the first ever Augmented Reality fashion show. Since budgets and technology don’t allow us to AR this blog you’ll just [...]

London Fashion Week - Westwood

Depressingly for London, Vivienne Westwood’s diffusion line, Red Label, is as big of a show as it gets for Fashion Week, bar the odd special appearance. We love Viv, it’s just that London would be a more exciting place if she showed her main line here too. This season Vivienne seems to be sticking to [...]

LONDON FASHION WEEK - DID YOU FORGET ABOUT SKIN JEWELLERY?

I thought “skin jewelery” was a forgotten mid-90s fad, just like those fake stretchy tribal tattoo chokers and things like this. But, J. Maskrey has made a whole fashion range out of attaching tacky blobs of rhinestones to people’s bodies. This look might be a little labour intensive for an average night out, but take [...]

Yang Du explains why her monster faces make great fashion

The clothes of Chinese designer Yang Du turn their wearer into iconographic faces and furry monsters. Seeing one of Yang’s catwalk shows is like watching a Monster Munch videogame virus invade planet fashion. Basically, she’s not everyone else, and unlike a lot of wacky fashion, the girls wearing her stuff still get to look hot. [...]

Fashion week is a really cheap way for celebs to raise their profile

You know celebrities love fashion week because it’s a really good way of getting a lot of media exposure. This year’s fashion week has been a HOT BED of past-it celebs trying to worm their way back into the papers, with everyone from Pixie Lott to the ginger one from Girls Aloud gracing the front [...]

London Fashion Week - New Power Studio

We’ve banged-on about New Power Studio a lot on this website. And it’s a trend that shows no sign of abating. We went to talk to label boss Thom Murphy about why fashion videos are going to destroy fashion shoots. (...)Read the rest of London Fashion Week - New Power Studio (41 words) © VICE FASHION BLOG, [...]

POST-TEKKEN FASHION

Lulu Kennedy’s Fashion East was a big show because nearly every designer featured by this organisation goes on to be big international news; Gareth Pugh, Jonathan Saunders and Marios Schwab all started here. This is hat designer Nasir Mazhar’s Fashion East debut but he’s already internationally known. Nasir only sells the hats and the accessories, [...]
