Jil Sander returned to the runway after a seven-year hiatus with her spring 2013 menswear collection this past weekend, and the reviews are in!
And we totally agree with them.
This summer’s CFDA Awards will be broadcast on Style.com for the first time ever. The only problem? It’ll be online a day after the event, on June 5.
On Halloween, the first issue of Style.com’s print magazine will hit newsstands. The magazine features a closeup cover of 17-year-old model Lindsey Wixson, a 23-page photo essay of her shot by rumored boyfriend and publishing progeny Theo Wenner, a comprehensive roundup of the Spring 2012, and a bunch of other fun goodies — but will the web fashion behemoth translate properly to print?
Many moons ago (or, you know, in April), we speculated on a rumored Style.com print edition. Style.com editor-in-chief Dirk Standen just confirmed the print plans to Business of Fashion, and our guesses were right on the money! What we weren’t banking on, however, was the fashion megasite going the e-commerce route.
We’re used to print magazines adopting digital platforms, but websites getting print editions? That’s pretty much of unheard of in today’s media climate. The people over at Condé Nast‘s Fairchild Fashion Group surely don’t think print is dead though, and they’re launching a print spinoff of Style.com to prove it.
Word has it that North of Madison, the reality show about the inner workings of Style.com, might be turned into a web-only series. Generally we think the Internet is a useful way to get messages to people. But we’re kinda upset about the online only thing, if for no other reason than we were totally looking forward to another hour of the week to put our cell phones in airplane mode.
If any of you were still worried that there was going to be some kind of all-out street fight between the editors at Style.com and the people who manage the newly minted Vogue.com, you can now rest easy. Style.com is making a move from Conde Nast Digital to the Fairchild Fashion Group.
Last month, a few different sources confirmed the news that Style.com was diving into the world of reality television with their very own “docu-series.” As of today, that show has a name and is starting to sound a little less “real” than they’d initially promised.
Style.com is indeed getting its own reality show. It’s already filming in the office of Dirk Standen (left). But they still have to cast a female love interest for writer Darrell Hartman, and they’re not sure which network is going to air the show. Still, it should be tons of fun to watch.
Word has it that Style.com, the erstwhile online home of Vogue and W, is working on a reality show. But instead of the scripted fakeness introduced by Teen Vogue on The Hills and perfected by Elle on The City, it’s said that the Style.com show will feature people who actually work at the magazine.
Anna Wintour has referred to Candy Pratts Price as “Queen of the Internet,” and for good reason. Once the executive fashion director at Style.com, she was laid off in October 2009 — which left the fashion world wondering what her next move would be. On Monday, WWD tweeted that Price had found a new, and yet very familiar gig.
Style.com may be the industry’s most well-known website, but Vogue is by far the world’s most well-known fashion magazine. So what happens when the indisputable bible of the fashion world steps out from under Style.com’s web-based shadow and re-launches its new and allegedly super-improved website?
Alexander Wang‘s”Wall Street-inspired” Fall 2010 collection will be the first of his collections to be featured in a real, live ad campaign! And if that bit of news doesn’t pack enough wham, Wang’s premiere video ad is fronted by none other than Chanel muse and fellow New Yorker Abbey Lee Kershaw.
Meet Volcom’s new denim designer, Jennifer Herrema. She fronts a rock band called RTX, and formerly fronted The Royal Trucks, is aviators-obsessed, grew up in D.C.’s skate culture, and owns more animal tails than Davy Crockett.
If there’s anything that puts Calvin Klein in a foul mood, it’s not sticking to the dress code — regardless of the weather.
Designers Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe, and Jean Paul Gaultier were seeing the world in sepia tone for inspiration for their Spring 2011 menswear collection — but why the digression from reality? Were they fantasizing about tales of the vagrants penned by Western authors like Owen Wister and Zane Grey, or were they thinking of hypothetical situations at an eighteenth century gentlemen’s club after-party? Between you and me, we think it’s all of the above.
Alber Elbaz and his floppy bowtie are so adorable to look at that sometimes you forget the sheer genius that lies in his round smiling head. But Elbaz sat down with Style.com for the sixth installment of their “Future of Fashion” series and the resulting conversation forever removed any doubts. Also, he unabashedly likes bloggers! We do have one quibble and that’s his stance on The Great Weight Debate, but we’ll let you read it for yourself.
