ASOS:SNEAKER UPDATE: VANS X ASHLEY WILLIAMS

Say hey to the latest collab on the Vans block. Just in time for spring/summer 2019, the skateboard stalwart has teamed up with Ashley Williams, the London designer known for her brazen pattern clashes and provocative slogans (most notably those glitzy ‘ANXIETY’ hair grips you’ll have seen all over the ‘gram.)The collection is made up of 4 classic Vans styles (Authentic, Era, Slip-On, and Style 93) each with a bold, new update. Think clashing animal prints, rebellious slogans like ‘DON’T KNOW, DON’T CARE’, grungy piercing details and branded gothic-print laces. It’s safe to say our inner MySpace kids are freaking out RN. We’ll be teaming these with light-wash jeans and tie-dyed long sleeves for summer (when it finally rolls around).

H&M:EYTYS X H&M – SWEDISH BFFS

When H&M teams up with fellow Swedish cult brand Eytys, it’s all about chunky shoes and unisex silhouettes. Join us at the Eytys head office to get a sneak peek of the collection.
It all began with a shoe. Or rather the lack of it. Max Schiller and Jonathan Hirschfeld – childhood friends and founders of Swedish brand Eytys – were on vacation in Japan together and found themselves dreaming of the same shoe: a chunky unisex sneaker inspired by the ones the American navy wore during World War II.

Three weeks later, they had quit their jobs and started the process of producing what would become ”Mother,” the brand’s most famous shoe. The rest is Swedish fashion history.

When Eytys and H&M team up for a capsule collection this January, a reinterpretation of the ”Mother” shoe is a natural part of it. Meeting Max and Jonathan for a sneak peek of the collab in the Eytys head office in central Stockholm, it’s obvious that shoes are in focus, but the line also includes jackets, t-shirts, sweaters, pants and jeans in heavy cotton twill, faux patent leather, nylon and raw denim.
“In this collab we wanted to give the shoes new life. To put them in a context of a concentrated collection with other products. And all those products are designed the same way we always design: by taking traditional workwear garments and giving them new proportions, creating more extreme versions of the original idea,” says Max Schiller.

“And of course there’s a version of ‘Mother’ in this capsule collection. It’s an iconic model for us, and it would have been weird not to include a rendition of it. It has been so much fun to explore new ways to modify the classic, with new textures and new materials.”
Unisex design is in our DNA, we do it without thinking
The two founders were born in the 80s and grew up in the 90s as part of Generation Y – hence the brand name.
“The 90s influence has never been an intention, but we grew up in that decade. That was when our identities were formed, when clothing and sneakers became important. It’s easy to become nostalgic,” says Max.
The capsule collection features several shoe models as well as garments, all with the significant Eytys look. For this brand, it’s all in the proportions.
“I like it when function unites with interesting silhouettes. I’m a fan of focusing on classic products and then creating something warped in the design. Eytys is all about playing with proportions and materials. When we wanted to do a heavy cotton jersey sweater for this collection, we sourced the driest, heaviest cotton jersey I could find. If a pair of pants are baggy, they’re really really baggy. That’s a very fun way to work as a designer,” says Max.
The Eytys x H&M collection is – as all Eytys products – unisex. Because why should a sneaker not be?

“Unisex design is in our DNA, we do it without thinking. And the reaction is almost always positive. To us, the difference between the male body and the female body has never been an issue. Our clothes have a completely different silhouette anyway,” says Max.

IN WHAT WAY IS EYTYS AND H&M A FRIENDLY MATCH?
“Eytys has typically not been for everyone and we have never aimed to be a crowd pleaser, but it feels great to work together with H&M to let more people discover our brand and what we stand for.”

H&M:HOW WE DRESS FOR THE SEASON’S BEST PARTIES

LUXE LOUNGEWEAR
The hours leading up to a big night are often more thrilling than the event itself. Just like the last days of spring offer a foretaste of the summer sweetness to come, the process of getting ready for long-awaited evenings fills us with the same excitement and anticipation. The ultimate preparation? Sleeping in super-soft silk sleepwear (and eating a big, late and long breakfast in bed, of course).

NEXT LEVEL EAR CANDY
The days of over-the-top beauty regimens are behind us. Instead of heavy makeup and advanced hairdos, opt for a natural beauty look and let statement <span class=”woR”>accessories</span><span class=”woD”>A fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look.</span> enhance your features. This season we want to be dripping in eye-catching and statement-making jewelry. Oversized rhinestone earrings are a guaranteed head-turner, and these clip-ons don’t even require you to get your ears pierced.

INVEST IN FOREVER PIECES
What’s the point of dressing up if what you wear limits you? The perfect combination of comfort and <span class=”woR”>style</span><span class=”woD”>Style is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one.</span> is spelled co-ords. A pair of tailored pants matched with a minimalistic – but perfectly detailed – crinkled top is the safest bet to give a laid-back cool approach to whatever event you’re rolling up to.

A NEW TAKE ON BLACK TIE
Some events call for traditional eveningwear – meaning tuxedos for the boys and gowns for the girls. But don’t let tradition dictate how you interpret a dress code. The ground rule of black tie is you have to dress to excess, which you definitely will in an elongated tuxedo jacket, a draped silk top and flats.

BORROW FROM THE BOYS
Don’t let masculine tailoring put you off! This updated wardrobe classic has a raw collar and comes in pure silk, and is best worn with shiny, wide pants and brushed metal accessories for a sophisticated feel.

IT’S OK TO PARTY IN PJs
There are parties we wish would never end, and then there are parties that make us long to go back to bed. Despite its name, the pajama suit is not made for the latter. This midnight blue two-piece has a print inspired by tree-rings and is sure to make a growing impact.

LONG LIVE YOUR HOOP DREAMS
Tiny, barely-there ear jewelry never goes out of style. These hoops may be small in size, but they’re massive on detail – being covered with shine and sparkle that will elevate whatever party look you wear.

THE LWD
When it comes to winter dressing, the little white dress is not top-of-mind… yet. More often thought of as an MVP in your spring and summer wardrobe, the classic is just a few styling tricks away from deserving the same treatment in your winter getup. Let the hemline overlap a pair of high and wide deep chocolate brown boots for a less prim and proper effect.

LET’S HAVE A BALL!
When it comes to show-stopping outfits, nothing beats a beaded sequin dress. With a flapper-style silhouette, padded shoulders and high side-slits, this sparkling gown is the ultimate party piece. Let the dress do the talking and wear it with simple <span class=”woR”>shoes</span><span class=”woD”>A shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while doing various activities. Shoes are also used as an item of decoration. The design of shoes has varied enormously through time and from culture to culture, with appearance originally being tied to function.</span>, zero accessories and a pared-back beauty look.

AN EVENING ESSENTIAL
Having one of those “I have nothing to wear” moments? Then a simple and timeless long-sleeved black dress can be a lifesaver. The key to making it stand out in the masses is pairing it with stunning jewelry. Always.

9. THE UNDENIABLE CHARM
Charm-style bracelets and necklaces are everything this season. Have fun with them and style the golden chains and charms in a playful mix with minimalist beads and bangles.

10. THE HUGGABLE HANDBAG

TOPSHOP: 5 Things We Learned At The HALPERN September 2018 Show

In November 2018 we’re launching an exclusive collection with HALPERN, featuring 28 lines reflecting the London-based label’s signature hyper-glamorous look. Today, Michael Halpern showed his latest collection at London Fashion Week, so we headed down to give you a glimpse of the designer’s exciting work.

1. Sequins are forever

Naturally Michael Halpern’s signature sequins made yet another appearance in his latest collection. This time around, they were held in iridescent pastels, vertical rainbow stripes and graphic monochromes.

2. Bucket hats can be couture

HALPERN just turned the rave <span class=”woR”>accessories</span><span class=”woD”>A fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look.</span> into the couture item everyone will be wearing next season.

They definitely would have made an impression at Studio 54, one of HALPERN’s all-time inspirations.

4. Back to the space age

’60s bobs and eye make-up, hooded headscarves, rectangular glasses and vinyl fabrics – Michael Halpern seems to have gone back to the space age for one of the key collection references.

5. Fashion meets art

Michael Halpern turned his line-up of models into an array of walking canvases featuring art-inspired prints, bold colours and the <span class=”woR”>shoes</span><span class=”woD”>A shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while doing various activities.

Meghan Markle Was Wearing This Major 2018 Shoe Trend 3 Years Ago–zara

Gentle reminder: Meghan Markle led a life pre–Prince Harry in which she could wear whatever she wanted. Oftentimes, that meant things like minidresses and trendy shoes for various events that she attended in her former life as an actress. And we just noticed that on one occasion, in particular, she was way ahead of the curve when it came to shoe trendA trend is the latest style of popular culture including but not limited to: clothing, music, vernacular (common speech), and the latest tv shows. This form of culture is usually expressed by preps and other kids trying desperately to be accepted by peers despite obvious outcastment..

In November 2015, Markle attended the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awardAn award is something given to a person, a group of people, like a sports team, or an organization in recognition of their excellence in a certain field.[1][2] An award may be accompanied by trophy, title, certificate, commemorative plaque, medal, badge, pin, or ribbon. An award may carry a monetary prize given to the recipient. For example: the Nobel Prize for contributions to society, or the Pulitzer prize for literary achievements. An award may also simply be a public acknowledgment of excellence, without any tangible token or prize of excellence. wearing a metallic minidress, designed by her friend Misha Nonoo, with one of 2018’s biggest trends: PVC (or “Cinderella”) shoesA shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while doing various activities. Shoes are also used as an item of decoration. The design of shoes has varied enormously through time and from culture to culture, with appearance originally being tied to function.. In fact, her Gianvito Rossi mule-pumps with a wide PVC strap would look completely of-the-moment today. The shoes are certainly a departure from the classic pumps she’s been wearing since becoming a duchess, be we think she could get away with at least wearing them again (at least when the queen isn’t around).

Our Stylists’ Best Insider Packing Tips–stitchfix

Is there anything better than vacation? Discovering new places, meeting new people, learning the ways of the locals, absorbing all that art, culture…and vino. The one bummer can be packing. With that in mind, we have tapped the best resource we know of to get you the most fashionable, practical packing tips: our Stitch Fix Stylists.

PLANNING & HOW TO PACK
1. Take your travel game to the next level with pre-packing! A few days before the trip, I put out a bag with my first draft of clothes, and then make cuts closer to the day based on the weather and available luggage space. I also throw in stuff I might forget, like phone chargers and toiletries. That prep has saved me a lot of hassle on the road! — Stephania S.

2. If you are an over-packer invest in some vacuum travel bags that compress your clothing down to a fraction of its original size. You’ll get more out of your luggage space while packing all of your travel necessities. It’s especially ideal for those big and bulky pieces that take up a lot of space in your bag. — Sheri F.

GET COMFORTABLE
3. Comfort is key for me so I put a lot of thought on my actual traveling clothes. For a hassle-free transition at the airport I always take a hoodie to stay warm and comfortable–and the extra pockets are a plus for keeping those travel documents secure! — Crista G.

4. Ditch the heelsHigh heels are a type of shoesA shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while doing various activities. Shoes are also used as an item of decoration. The design of shoes has varied enormously through time and from culture to culture, with appearance originally being tied to function. in which the heel, compared to the toe, is significantly higher off of the ground. These shoes go beyond simply protecting the foot from the ground or improve efficiency of walking. High heels make the wearer taller, accentuating the calf muscle and the length of the leg overall.
. They aren’t comfortable for exploring new cities and take up way too much luggage real estate. Instead, I bring a pair of versatile flats and my trusty sneakers everywhere I roam! — Charlotte B.

EMBRACE VERSATILITY
5. Always pack a lightweight scarf that’s long enough to cover your head and shoulders. Depending on where you’re traveling, tank tops are bare heads might not be allowed. Bonus points that it can also serve as a belt, bag accessoriesA fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look.
, headband or wrap on the plane! — Laurie H.

6. I think of pre-selecting my clothes as a way of saving precious time that I will want to spend getting to know new places and people. So I usually choose a palette of three to four colors to stick to, and then a few bottoms and tops in those hues. That not only helps narrow down my choices and prevent me from getting “option paralysis” when packing, but it also makes it so easy to mix and match during my trip. — Crista G.
