She has had an accomplished career in the sport and was the No. 5 ranked rider in 1,000 under 25 in 2019, according to Equestrian sports. Just three years ago, she shared her life goals with the equestrian outlet, explaining, “Well, I’m actually studying abroad in Paris this term, so my short-term goal is to traveling and exploring new places with my friends.

“It really feels like a celebration,” Tracee Ellis Ross said Women’s Wear Daily while launching the Off-White Womenswear Fall/Winter 2022-2023 collection as one of the opening acts for Paris Fashion Week on Monday night. In tribute to its late artistic director Virgil Ablohthe label hosted a multimedia and interactive track presentation that debuted as a citywide live stream and on TikTok titled “Spaceship Earth: An ‘Imaginary Experience'”.

Ellis Ross was among a host of stars at the Palais Brongniart in Paris which included Rihanna (her growing baby bump encased in a flesh-colored leather mini dress and matching shearling), A$AP Rocky, Pharrell Williams, Idris Elbe and Luka Sabbath. Creators Olivier Rousteing (Balmain), Grace Wales Bonner, jerry lorenzo (fear of God) and Tremaine Emory (Denim Tears) were also present, among others. But there were also plenty of stars on the Off-White catwalk; among a host of veteran and newly minted models were Naomi Campbell, Joan Petits and Adut Akechjoined by Abloh’s friend and occasional muse Serena Williams.

Wearing Abloh’s final designs for the label he founded, they weaved their way around a huge low-hanging chandelier, with several models carrying flags similar to those once flown in museums hosting the traveling exhibit. by Abloh in 2019 “Figures of Speech”. Each was adorned with their signature slogan: “Questioning Everything”.

Despite the show’s theme of an “imaginary experience,” what’s not in dispute is that in his brief life and career, the multifaceted Abloh accomplished more than most could. to imagine. His evolution at Off-White was no different; although his tenure as creative director was tragically cut short, his final designs fulfilled a wish he shared with Vogue in 2021, ironically during his last appearance at Paris Fashion Week: “Off-White should be grown up” .

Virgil Abloh's latest creations for Off-White will walk around during Paris Fashion Week

The Women’s Fall/Winter 2022-2023 collection, most of which was designed by Abloh himself, was exactly that. In keeping with his DJ alter ego, several looks evoked a remix of great fashion moments, including Tom Ford’s now-legendary 1995 collection for Gucci and Alexander McQueenspray painted a tulle dress live on her 1999 runway. The latter came to mind as the iconic Debra Shaw took to the track for the finale, contorting her torso in a cropped, twisted, logo-embellished white jersey top paired with an ivory equestrian cap and massive shredded tulle skirt adorned with sky blue spray paint and her own leash.

But while nostalgic, those references took on new life in a collection that was also a poignant reminder of Abloh’s unique genius. As reported on site by WWD:

On the catwalk, cameramen rushed around models dressed in outfits ranging from a sharp black pantsuit to a shimmering lilac mini dress and chunky quilted jackets and hiking boots, part of a new capsule from ski wear for women and men. Williams, who wore custom Off-White outfits on the court, wore a tie-dye print bodysuit with gathered leggings, topped with a form-fitting sheer sleeveless dress.

But the big news was the launch of the “High Fashion” line, with a parade of 28 looks that reads like a who’s who of modeling. It was high fashion for the Gen-Z ensemble, underscored by the laid-back attitude of the models who paraded in layers of yarrow pleats and heavy trains, wearing headwear ranging from baseball caps the size of riding helmet with elongated bucket hats.

With Abloh’s influence so evident on the runway, one was also confronted with the fact that the debut of his latest collection took place exactly three months before the day of his death on Nov. 28, 2021. Off-White, who is majority-owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, has yet to announce a new creative director or directors, as has also been teased. But there’s apparently another new development brewing for the brand, as a beauty line is likely to debut this spring, WWD and Business of Fashion report. All told, as the fashion world continues to reckon with the loss of Abloh’s incredible and seemingly limitless imagination, his vision for Off-White will endure.

‘I love the swoosh of a sequin’: the evening dress is back, back, BACK! | Fashion https://ohalloranco.com/i-love-the-swoosh-of-a-sequin-the-evening-dress-is-back-back-back-fashion/ Wed, 23 Feb 2022 06:00:00 +0000 https://ohalloranco.com/i-love-the-swoosh-of-a-sequin-the-evening-dress-is-back-back-back-fashion/ HOn a pedestal above the fashion week crowd, a model fluttered her fan of white feathers to the beat of a jazz quartet, the starburst beading on her inky blue silk gown shimmering under the chandeliers.

HOn a pedestal above the fashion week crowd, a model fluttered her fan of white feathers to the beat of a jazz quartet, the starburst beading on her inky blue silk gown shimmering under the chandeliers. Another sipped a negroni while dancing delicately in a molten gold strapless dress. A pistachio silk dress was accessorized with a beaded cap; the hand-painted velvet was edged with a neckline of black feathers; tiny evening bags swayed on delicate gold chains.

As the large marble hall, where Rixo’s London Fashion Week collection was on display, filled with editors, buyers and influencers, the public ignored her Storm Eunice trench coats and stared, saucer-eyed, Gatsby-esque pyramids of champagne glasses, which stood like Christmas trees in every corner of the room.

The sound of champagne corks echoed throughout this London fashion week. It was a strangely soothing sound, like a clear signal after an air raid, nerves rattled by two years of high alert. The shows have returned to familiar near-chaos cheek by jowl, after stilted seasons of masked models and socially distant audiences. And the new look that’s everywhere isn’t a must-have color or hemline or even a trendy take on the tracksuit. It’s the evening dress.

At Halpern’s show in Brixton, strappy dresses in flamingo pink satin and tiger-striped velvet dripped from models’ bodies like butter on hot toast. “I wanted it to be like, Anjelica Huston wakes up at a Scarface-era party after two years in a fever dream,” designer Michael Halpern explained backstage.

Everywhere you went there was dressing up and there was dancing. Preen held their first show in two years at Heaven nightclub under the Charing Cross railway arches. Ballet students with messy knotted hair and thick squiggles of eyeliner wore white feather ra-ra dresses that circled around their hips like punk tutus as they danced. Every now and then a particularly energetic jump dislodged the remnants of a glistening shower, a long-forgotten Saturday night, from the rafters, to land in the knees of the crowd squeezed for the last dance on the wooden benches around the room. .

Clements Ribeiro, the beloved 1990s London label revived by designer Inacio Ribeiro and his wife, Suzanne Clements, turned their teatime presentation into a Brazilian party last year, complete with professional forró dancers pairing up to show off their hip swings and pulling punters onto the dance floor to teach them a few moves. Erdem Moralıoğlu added beaded opera gloves to slippery bias-cut dresses and sent the models into a hushed darkness dotted with puddles of milky light. He liked to imagine that they were coming back from a club in the middle of the night under streetlights. “I love the swoosh of a sequin,” the designer said. “It’s always been one of my favorite sounds.”

The shift in mood towards dressing to go out – or to go out – is a drastic change of pace. Until recently, two years of strange no tide had left fashion stranded. With nowhere to go, we gave up getting dressed. But, as the world sees a light at the end of the tunnel, our appetite for getting back on track returns. Fashion weeks are, undeniably, slightly ridiculous, but they’re also part of the rhythm of life, with muddy music festivals and shiny red carpet movie award ceremonies, raffles for races horses and talks about Love Island. It’s deeply reassuring to see London Fashion Week picking up steam again.

That fashion should be all about evening dress right now is both zeitgeist and business opportunity. The rise of hybrid working has left many of us with a full-time office wardrobe and a part-time office schedule, so we have more smart workwear than we need. And pretty much no one opens their wardrobe right now and thinks, what would really thrill me to the bone would be a new tracksuit. It may have become trendy to write fashion, but after all that table decor and keeping Zoom backdrops, many of us have come to the conclusion that expressing personal style entirely through expensive twirling pastel candles and high-maintenance succulents is, ultimately, a bit airless.

The hottest labels in London right now are making dresses for the dancefloor – or, at least, for a Netflix-and-chill vibe rather than just Netflix. Poster Girl is designed by Francesca Capper and Natasha Somerville, who met in Central Saint Martins and worked with each other at design studios Dior, Vivienne Westwood and Jeremy Scott. The brand creates candy-colored dresses with heart-shaped cutouts and micro-mini hemlines, and is already adored by Dua Lipa and Kylie Jenner. Nensi Dojaka, winner of the prestigious LVMH award, trained in lingerie design, and it shows in her bra-style dresses, corsets and stretch mesh. Supriya Lele’s halter necklines and low-rise hipster minis are on par with the current year 2000 fashion revival, and brought a powerhouse to the front row that included Victoria Beckham on her show. The turn to skin-baring was striking at Simone Rocha, where ruffled, opulent evening gowns were, this season, scaled down to Tonya-style proportions. It’s happening in the atelier, too, in real time: Zara is full of distinctly un-February-ish wrap-around mini dresses in Pucci-adjacent swirls, and & Other Stories’ midi dresses have risque cutouts and curved gathered seams. .

The rise of upcycling, the making of new clothes from leftover fabric and pre-worn clothes, is also putting a spotlight on party wear. Young designer Conner Ives’ knotted and twisted dresses, sewn from vintage T-shirts, are proof that you can create something fun and flamboyant from discarded clothes. It’s arguably more difficult to craft, say, a bespoke pantsuit or coat from odds and ends. Recycled lurex fringes regenerate old fabric into new, with the jagged texture adding to the overall dazzle. And upcycled party clothes feel like a celebration of old clothes, which aligns with the values ​​of a new generation of designers, who believe sustainability should feel like an aspiration rather than a stopgap.

The festive atmosphere does not hide the fact that British fashion is going through a difficult period, caught between the pandemic and Brexit. The biggest European luxury houses have experienced a remarkable rebound from Covid. Kering, which owns Gucci, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga, saw its net profit rise 37% last year to $3.64 billion; LVMH, home of Dior, Fendi and Celine, doubled its net profit to $12 billion. Meanwhile, UK clothing and footwear exports fell nearly 60% last year from 2018. That work is more perilous than ever, combined with designers showcasing their clothes at shows live, in many cases for the first time in years, fuels a sense of fashion week drama. “It was getting pretty claustrophobic, doing it all in the studio,” noted designer Molly Goddard, who built a 5-foot-tall catwalk for her first show since lockdowns began, and dressed models in taffeta ponytail dresses. of fish and tulle puffballs. “A show is quite cathartic, and inevitably it gives you a more extreme perspective.”

A return to a normalcy we barely remember brings its own sense of unreality. “I’ve kind of been waiting to put on a show all my life,” Ives told me in his studio last week. As part of the Central Saint Martins class of 2020, he saw the graduation show that his studies and childhood dreams had piled up until they were canceled at the last moment. “And now, after everything we’ve all been through…what, are we all going to go straight back to Milan and Paris and go around the world?” I mean, I believe in fashion shows, but I also don’t think the world can just forget the past two years,’ he said, shaking his head in bewilderment, even as the models walked through the line. door to the studio for the final fittings. “I don’t feel like we can take anything for granted anymore.”

Many of us can identify with that. And for some, that sounds like a reason to rock a party dress when you can.

One day before Elena Velez’s New York Fashion Week show – a show that involved some seriously killer clothes, but more importantly, looked like the start of something exciting in a young artist’s career – was a picture of contained chaos. At her studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Velez and her team put the finishing touches on her fall 2022 collection, titled “Year One—Maidenhood & Its Labors,” which premiered at the Freehand Hotel in Manhattan on Feb. 11. But it wouldn’t be Fashion Week if it weren’t for some sort of drama – so when Velez discusses the aforementioned “finishing touches”, she really means ditching clothing concepts and starting from scratch, rolling with the changes that come with fittings and “last minute disasters.

“We know it’s coming! We’re about six months ahead,” Velez laughs at Zoom as she wanders around the sprawling industrial space she shares with her partner. “I don’t know why it always comes back to the last 24 hours.”

This kind of experience is normal, even for the most seasoned designers. But Velez, 27, is only showing his second official collection. Despite this, his designs are fully evolved, thoughtful, and filled with the stories of his life.

“You have to start from a place of identity, and I have nothing else to say,” she said. Velez, an only child, grew up in Milwaukee and spent his early years in shipyards, engine rooms and docks with his mother, who worked as a captain on the Great Lakes. As she explored these industrial spaces, her interest in working with fabric and form grew; though she didn’t know what to do with that interest until she realized fashion was a viable career. She studied at Parsons for undergraduate and Central Saint Martins in London for postgraduate. At the first, she learned to develop her artistic abilities into a brand that would appeal to investors and consumers. At the latter, she was encouraged to take wild risks, to embrace making something hideous, something beyond the bounds of taste, and then embellishing it after the fact. Both experiences, she found, revealed a tension between “very Midwestern blue-collar, traditional craftsmanship through a fine art perspective.”

“There were so many different unique opportunities to bring Milwaukee back into my story and reference it as a point of authenticity in the work,” Velez adds. “Accepting and rejecting my unglamorous Midwestern upbringing is an angle that resonates with people.”

This theme is a constant, rooted in the philosophy behind each of Velez’s collections. But for “Year One,” it translates to a character study of “our wife,” she says. “There is a very paradoxical narrative of the brand that stems from my relationship with my mother and my idea of ​​femininity and beauty – what I wanted from her as a child – pretty, light and delicate – compared to what I want from it now: a more casual and industrious femininity that is aggressive and enduring and prioritizes function over aesthetics She shows a few pieces of clothing (which are all in various stages of development). ‘completion) to demonstrate: A tailored dress-length jacket features a lapel that runs all the way around the body. those cool indentations and pleats that are elegant, but also a little butch.” A dress made from a World War II parachute with a corset-like construction is on trend while still fulfilling its original purpose. third look she shares is the bones of a dress, pinned to a form; the garment is made of an oilcloth laminate that was once also a parachute. “We’re going to turn this into a beautiful dress,” she says. “It will be brutal and severe, but also charming.”

When I see this dress in its finished state at Elena Velez’s presentation, it is exactly as described – an off-white strapless dress with a high slit and gathered pleats at the bodice. Any trace of chaos or unpreparedness from the day before has disappeared. Inside the Baroque Georgia Room at the Freehand, Velez and her team have created their own world, one that marries industry and a certain maritime roughness with all sorts of feminine archetypes. The “Belle Epoque prostitute,” as Velez described her to me the day before, manifests herself in a transparent dress with an elastic cutout around the model’s belly; the “certified forklift girl, who looks like midwestern tractor glamour,” wears a pair of JNCO-sized black pants with silver hardware, and a “spiritualist farmer” opens the show wearing an off-white crepe dress with cutouts, holding a piece of burning incense in a hanging censer. The models are adorned with pieces of fabric around their chin that wrap around the back of their head. Their hands are covered in charcoal up to their elbows, and their lipstick is dark and smudged all over their faces, like dirty angels. Their blank expressions convey the distinct feeling of demonic possession. It’s a scene from the fanciest horror movie you’ve ever seen.

There’s another element of Velez’s upbringing that plays into every garment she creates: the designer is half-Puerto Rican, a country she grew up visiting “here and there.” “My relationship with Puerto Rico was very strange,” she says. “I was raised by my mother and my father is Puerto Rican. I have kind of a weak relationship with her, unfortunately. But as anyone of mixed ancestry will tell you, growing up half and half doesn’t always translate to a literal interpretation of two cultures. It’s a fusion of ever-changing identities, a constant struggle to understand each other while channeling all cultural paradoxes into a single human experience. As Velez bows out at the end of the parade, she waves and gives kisses, then walks straight into the photographers’ pit at the end of the runway to give her dad a hug.

And though bad weather didn’t stop a handful of fashion showgoers from stepping out in pointy stilettos or high-heeled boots. While there were a few spunky soles sporting peep-toe silhouettes, the majority opted for sleek iterations of snow- and rain-resistant boots.

Moon Boots also made a few appearances, paired with plaid midi skirts, fashionable fleeces and acid wash jeans. And most memorable was a pair of yellow and purple lace-up duck boots worn with printed catsuits and patchwork knits. All this to say that you don’t have to give up personal style for practicality.

How many bags is too many? Well, you might struggle to answer that question after checking out all the new Spring/Summer 2022 bags.

For the new season, luxury fashion brands like Hermès and Chanel have moved away from traditional silhouettes and instead offered fresh and playful bags. Color-wise, you’ll be enchanted by bright hues and soft pastels – a palette best captured in the graphic artwork seen on the new Fendi Peekaboo handbags.

Ready to refresh your wardrobe? Take a look at our favorite deals and where you can buy them in Singapore below.

The best luxury bags for spring/summer 2022:

Hermes Sabot

Hermès has shown us that it is indeed possible to reinvent the basket bag with its new entry, the Sabot Hermès. The bag takes its distinctive shape from the horse’s hoof, a nod to the French luxury brand’s equestrian heritage. The woven wicker that wraps around it has been entirely handcrafted, as has the leather handle that comes in this iconic shade of orange. There’s nothing better to take with you on your next picnic.

Now available in Hermès boutiques.

BalenciagaHead sneakers

Ironic designs became Demna’s specialty while at the helm of Balenciaga, where he gave us everything from Crocs heels to furry handbags. The new TrainersHead bag, however, is its most playful contribution yet: while slightly resembling the Balenciaga Hourglass bag in silhouette, it’s heavily adorned with laces and layered panels straight out of Balenciaga’s best-selling sneaker line.

Celine Triomphe Leather Handbag

We’re big fans of the Triomphe de Céline pattern, which founder Céline Vipiana created after seeing the chains surrounding the Arc de Triomphe. The 1972 design has graced many monogrammed bags since Hedi Slimane took over the French fashion house, but it’s now being used in a whole new way. Join the Triomphe Leather family: each bag is boldly embossed with the Triomphe logo, and the effect is particularly stunning on this shoulder bag. It has all the ease and elegance of the Celine bags adored by Blackpink’s Kaia Gerber and Lisa, and we’ll no doubt be seeing them both transition to this new style in the months to come.

Fendi x Antonio Lopez Hello

Here is one for collectors. For Spring-Summer 2022, Fendi’s creative director, Kim Jones, was inspired by the works of Antonio Lopez. The influential fashion illustrator, whose works captured the zest of the 70s, has featured extensively in magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and She. Now, however, you can flaunt them through Fendi’s Peekaboo bag, where many of Lopez’s striking works of art have been faithfully recreated in leather.

Coming soon.

Chanel 22

The aptly named Chanel 22 bag is the French luxury brand’s big new accessory of the year. Designer Virginie Viard reimagined Chanel’s signature quilted leather and chain detailing to create a plush tote you can wear every day. It’s fun and fresh (see the many Chanel 22 colors above), and will come in three sizes as well as a backpack version.

Available in Chanel boutiques from March 2022.

Dior Bobby East-West

When the Dior Bobby launched in 2020, it made the case for hobo bags at a time when square flap bags and pillow-like clutches were all the rage. Now, however, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri has refined the silhouette into something more timeless. The Bobby East-West adopts a baguette shape crafted in box calfskin. It’s extremely versatile, thanks to its detachable shoulder strap that lets you wear it cross-body, cross-body or as a handbag. Finally, we’re obsessed with the soft colors he offers, especially this “Rose des Vents” shade that we’ll be sure to see very soon on Dior Ambassador Jisoo.

Seventy photos marking the Queen’s 70 years on the throne have been compiled to celebrate the monarch’s Platinum Jubilee.

Along with an image of Elizabeth II from each full year of her reign, the images, collated by the PA news agency, show the Queen through the decades – from a sovereign in her twenties to a leader of ‘state experienced in its twilight years.

In the first photo from 1952, the dark new young queen is dressed in her black mourning attire as she waves royally from her car.

She was returning to Clarence House after landing at London Airport, having just returned from Kenya two days after the death of her beloved father George VI.

Sixteen months later, she was crowned in her coronation regalia in a deeply religious ceremony at Westminster Abbey in 1953.

Riding in Windsor, spending days at the races and cuddling corgis are just some of the glimpses of the behind-the-scenes queen.

On duty, the monarch is seen in a fur stole and ball gown for the official opening of parliament in 1964, saluting Silver Jubilee revelers in 1977 and saluting in uniform and on horseback for the 1985 Trooping the Color .

In 1993, the able Queen, with one eye closed, is pictured firing the last shot from a standard SA 80 rifle during a visit to the Army Rifle Association in Bisley Ranges.

The Queen prepares to pour her own milk as she joins Glasgow resident Susan McCarron for a cup of tea at her home in Castlemilk in 1999.

A visit to the Queen Vic pub in EastEnders and a front row seat at London Fashion Week are some of the lightest engagements during the monarch’s many years of royal duties.

The serious side included meeting presidents and prime ministers, inspecting honor guards, and performing state ceremonies.

The Queen honored her with a wreath at the Armed Forces Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in 2011, and in 2013 she joined the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders for a group photo.

For the 2020 photo, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh stand side by side in the sunshine in the Quadrangle of Windsor Castle.

They were photographed to mark Philip’s 99th birthday.

The couple, who have been married for 73 years, spent confinement together at the royal Berkshire residence in HMS Bubble – the nickname of their family reduced to staff.

But within a year, Philip was dead. The Queen sat alone at her funeral amid Covid-19 restrictions in 2021.

In one image, the Queen – one of the most photographed women in the world – walks behind the lens.

In 1982, the sovereign took snaps with her gold Rollei camera during her royal visit to the South Seas islands of Tuvalu.

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on February 6 will be celebrated over a four-day weekend of national festivities in June.
