By now you are more than aware that critics and laymen alike really did not enjoy Kanye‘s very first womenswear collection. Kanye tried to preemptively brush off the haters at his runway show’s afterparty, but that didn’t stop everyone from saying their piece.
The nominees for the Council of Fashion Designers of America‘s 2011 awards ceremony are set, and the list is more or less a roster of the coolest kids working in the industry. And when we say kids, we mean kids. Because for the most part, this year’s nominees are pretty young. Also: Lady Gaga was nominated!
Last summer, Tim Gunn rocked the fashion world with his account of the time he saw Anna Wintour get carried down five flights of stairs, fireman style, by bodyguards at a Peter Som show in 2006. Well, fashion world, get ready, because the New York Times‘ Eric Wilson has another doozy: Ms. Wintour won’t share elevators, either!
As part of the media’s annual year-end love affair with listicles (current company included), Eric Wilson and Cathy Horyn of the New York Times offered up their top ten fashion moments of the 2010 calendar year. And while both lists were filled with fitting (and somewhat predictable) pics — the death of Alexander McQueen and Carine Roitfeld‘s resignation come to mind — they both opened with surprising nods to pop culture and the changing face of the industry as a whole.
Diane von Furstenberg kept hundreds of people rolling in the aisles at last night’s TimesTalk, hosted by NYT reporter Eric Wilson. Her comments on being a young designer, It bags, and how the wrap dress can get you laid after the jump.
It’s summer. It’s hot. Even in the rain we’re sweating. And we’re frustrated because we can’t take advantage of what Eric Wilson of The New York Times has officially anointed the summer style epidemic (in a good way) of 2010: the cuff roll. But who can actually pull it off?
Thierry Mugler is a strange, strange man. That’s how we’d sum up our thoughts after reading The New York Times‘ profile of the designer last week. We’d seen quotes floating around from the piece, but we’d apparently missed the part where Mugler hands NYT style writer Eric Wilson a naked mock-up of himself on the cover of T: The New York Times Style Magazine.
