What’s Your Summer Style?

We’ve all noticed them, and maybe you’re not fully aware of it, but when you work with trends and styles as much as we do, you start to notice the little things. While of course we are all individuals, there always has to be an archetype to base ourselves after – it may be a person, fictional or real, a celebrity or a model perhaps, or you might be the kind of person to be completely enamored with a period in time, or perhaps a place in the world.

The Best Alexander McQueen Accessory Guide For ‘22

Accessorizing is a quintessential part of our fashion journey, like in any creative world, sometimes you need a little extra. It’s the perfect amount of seasoning that a chef uses in his meals, it’s the small improvisation a musician adds to their composition – it’s what makes your outfits look more like you, rather than being a copy of a catalogue Many brands and fashion houses leave the art of accessory creation to companies that specialize in accessorizing, however, when a staple has been around for long enough, their influence...

Opposites Attract: Monochrome Fashion

Simplicity starts here. The fashion world can be a busy, bright, and certainly outlandish place – although no matter how complex designs and combinations can be, they are all founded on the same, simple principles. Brightness and darkness, complementary or contrasting colors – there’s intricacy in its simplicity. We keep our wardrobes filled to be able to create our own combinations and allow us to adopt the same mindset a designer would, using (or bending) the principles of fashion to make something new, and turn heads – the ideal wardrobe...

The Rise of Androgynous Menswear: Tomorrow Who’s Gonna Fuss?

“What the ocean does best” Love You So Bad by EF Harry Styles’ Vogue photoshoot broke Twitter timelines for weeks with his boundary-breaking choice of wardrobe. The cover saw the pop star in a translucent dress and black Gucci army jacket with flamboyant lapels. His cover photo caught the attention of conservatives and progressives alike, with both sides of the aisle commenting on what this means for the future of fashion and the lines between genders. With celebrities such as Jaden Smith and Ezra Miller acting as ambassadors for androgynous... Read More

WAR FOR CAMOUFLAGE III: SHOW ‘EM WHAT YOU GOT

The link between the Vietnam War and Streetwear Camouflage is a lot more direct when you expect. It’s less an upheaval and more a continuation of a long tradition of treating camouflage as the counter-culture print. Nowadays, you can find camouflage in the wardrobe of all sorts of groups and cultures: Hunters, hip-hop artists, (ironically) pacifists. Even brands who are worlds apart, such as football favourite Stone Island and luxury fashion house Valentino have been known to use the print. In our last editorials, we’ve talked about how camouflage came... Read More

Opening Ceremony has collaborated with Spike Jonze and Jonah Hill for works of dance and theatre. Let’s not forget to mention that the... Read More

The War for Camouflage – Part II: Napalm Sticks to Kids

Fashion is a battleground Is there any pattern more suited to the conflict between consumerism and counterculture than camouflage? Since its inception, the US woodland camouflage pattern has fallen in and out of style but never all at once. Popular with hipsters, hunters, rappers, and punks, camouflage is shared by so many demographics in our culture today. Okay, maybe ‘shared’ isn’t the correct word. This is where the war comes in. Despite being a military design, camouflage with its many colour variations has been transformed by pop culture in a... Read More

Flag Fashion: Patriotic or a Red Flag?

Britain, France, Russia and the Czech Republic. For all that our flags share, there’s nothing so American as the colours red, white and blue. Donning more than just Old Glory, the colours of the American flag make up much of our fashion in sporting events, holidays, celebrations, campaigns, protests, marketing… Nothing says ‘I am inherently worthy of your trust/money/votes’ more than sticking to the ol’ red, white and blue. It may come as a surprise, but most countries don’t share this near obsession with their own flag the way we... Read More
