A Gender-Neutral Shopping Experience in Selfridges’s Agender Project

In social media and on the fashion week runways, gender has almost certainly been the topic of conversation for the last few years.  Sweden just added “hen,” a gender-neutral pronoun, to their dictionary, and the call for gender-neutral bathrooms are a daily trending topic among gender activists.

Adding to the gender narrative is Selfridges, a retailer that just launched a project called Agender.

Dubbed as “a celebration of fashion without definition,” the Agender project offers consumers a “unique genderless shopping experience” by concentrating solely on unisex lines, available both in the brick-and-mortar store as well as online.

The Agender project includes a concept space devised by designer Faye Toogood, a campaign video by Kathryn Ferguson & Alex Turvey featuring an exclusive  soundtrack by Devonté Hynes, and striking campaign images of models dressed in Ann Demeulemeester, Comme des Garçons, Meadham Kirchoff, Gareth Pugh, and Nicola Formichetti’s Nicopanda, among others.

You can shop Agender here until the end of April.


Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley Launch New Hillier Bartley Brand

It was just two weeks ago when it was announced that Marc by Marc Jacobs would cease to exist and would instead be diffused into the Marc Jacobs brand. At the time of the announcement, it was unclear if MBMJ Creative Director Katie Hillier and Design Director Luella Bartley would follow suit and move to work under Marc Jacobs… that is, until now.

Meet Hillier Bartley, a new luxury brand created by the former Marc by Marc Jacobs design duo. According to sources, the brand, which just launched this week, is comprised of ready-to-wear apparel, bags and accessories, and will be available at select retailers starting in August.

Will Hillier Bartley be major competition for Marc Jacobs? We’re not sure. But what we do know is Hillier will remain involved with the Marc Jacobs brand in some capacity. Double win!

The End of the Line for Marc by Marc Jacobs

Although the rumors have been swirling around for the last few weeks, WWD broke news today that the Marc by Marc Jacobs diffusion line, currently designed since 2013  by creative director Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley, will be discontinued.

The MBMJ line will fold into Marc Jacobs’ main collection, and according to WWD, it will “encompass a range of merchandise and price points currently divided between the two lines, from luxury to contemporary.”

It has not yet been confirmed  if Hillier and Bartley will make a move to the Marc Jacobs creative team.

Though we’re sad to see the end of this line, we think this might be a smart step for the Jacobs’ brand. While Marc by Marc Jacobs may no longer exist, the silver lining is that they’ll able to keep their creative vision under one umbrella and will still offer the best of both worlds.

Seeing Spring Through Rose-Colored Sunnies

If you live on the East Coast, the weather has probably been more gloomy than glorious. Like us, you’ve probably been wishing this brutal weather away.

Gloom no more, darlings, because spring will soon return (cue screams of uncontrollable joy).

But with winter comes the absence of sun. Remember that yellow ray of light in the sky that used to shine so brightly and affect our moods? Yeah, we can hardly remember either, but we do know that at least spring will guarantee many more days of sun than our never-seeming-to end winter.

For all of you early preppers, you’ll need some chic sunnies to get you through this upcoming spring.  Start shopping now with these on-trend, editor-approved picks that will have you, quite literally, seeing through rose-colored glasses.

Sure, we have a few more days left in winter, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dream (and shop) for spring and summer.

Watch Chloe Sevigny and Liv Tyler in Proenza Schouler’s Beautifully Shot Fashion Video

Dynamic fashion duo Proenza Schouler just released a gorgeous short film that highlights their spring 2015 collection.  In the video titled, “Legs Are Not Doors” we witness eternally cool girls, actresses Chloe Sevigny and a very pregnant Liv Tyler, as well as models Fei Fei Sun, Laura Love, Liya Kebede, among others,  talking abstractly about ocean water, being a woman, pondering colors and having salty tastes in their mouths.

Dig a bit deeper and you may find the  subtle sexual undertones and what this film is actually about (there are many visual clues along the way).

Directed by Harley Weir, “Legs Are Not Doors,” is certainly rich in texture with fast-moving, alternating clips that reveal teasing images of  Proenza Schouler’s collection of houndstooth and geometric square prints, knits and, of course, snakeskin and perforated leather.

With a vintage feel to the quality, the video is beautifully shot and worth a watch.

Hurry! Someone pinch us, because we can’t believe these gorgeously green items are for real!

Kanye is Fashion May Be The Best-Ever Instagram Account

There are days when we feel pretty meh about instagram, and then there are days-- like today--when we’re thrilled that Instagram exists because, without it, there would be no Kanye is Fashion.

If you haven’t heard about this genius Instagram account yet, drop everything and revel in absurd Kanye rants paired with photos of Yeezy dressed in over-the-top fashion.

Fake Kanye quotes like, " Fashion is no different than music. Whatever I set my mind to becomes the influence to generation now. I'll lead, you follow,"  are paired with images of Kanye wearing onsies, three-headed bear suits and all those fashion outfits seen on the runway that make it to every editor's most-ridiculous list.

It is glorious, isn’t it? Almost as glorious as when Seth Rogen and James Franco did THIS.

Will Kanye ever make it as a luxury women’s fashion designer? Eh, probably not- but at least this exists because it ain't easy being Yeezy.

Fashion's Rising Models: Fresh Faces to Watch in 2015

The modeling industry is known for being incredibly fickle. Plenty of models come and go, but there are also those that take the fashion and modeling industry by storm.

They garner buzz everywhere they go, from the runway to the gossip columns to the covers of the world’s top magazines.

So, who should we be expecting to see in 2015? It is hard to decide, but after careful consideration, the following new faces are sure to be on everyone’s radar. Let’s take a quick look at the rising fashion stars to watch in 2015.


Since taking the 2014 Spring/Summer New York Fashion Week runway by storm, Natalie Westling has become a hot commodity. She was the star of the Spring 2014 Saint Laurent Paris and Marc Jacob campaigns, and is currently the face of Miu Miu’s new Diptych Campaign for Resort.

This is quite a feat for the fiery red-headed skateboarder, who only started modeling to appease her mother. After being discovered in her home state of Arizona, she was scouted by The Society and quickly relocated to NYC.

At 17 years of age, she is best known for her fierce tresses and porcelain doll-like features. You can expect to see Natalie gracing fashion runways all over the world in 2015.


At 19 years of age, Gigi Hadid, daughter to “Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast member Yolanda Foster, has graced the pages of numerous magazines including Elle, Vogue, Rolling Stone and Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition, and has walked the runway for everyone from Marc Jacobs to Guess, Tom Ford and more.

Recently, it was revealed that she is featured in the 2015 Pirelli calendar, and there are whispers that she will be the next Victoria’s Secret Angel. She began modeling at the young age of 2, after being discovered by Guess’ Paul Marciano.

However, she did take a break from modeling to concentrate on school before returning and signing with IMG Models. Considered by many to be fashion’s next “It Girl,” (sorry, Kendall Jenner) she is sure to be a mainstay in magazines and on the runway all through 2015 and beyond.


Born in Belgium, Simon Can Meervenne has taken the world of male modeling completely by storm since he was first discovered in 2010 while at Pukkelpop, an annual music festival held in Belgium. He made his modeling debut  in 2011, and he quickly became a runway favorite of designers including Versace and Calvin Klein.

Since then he has become one of the male models of choice for labels including Josep Abril, Desigual, Spanish label Mango, Dior, Raf Simons, Prada, Tom Ford and many more. Not only does he walk many of their runways, but he can also be seen in their print ads. In 2015, he will be walking the runway for Tom Ford and Michael Kors among others.


Born in South Korea, Dae Na burst onto the modeling scene in 2012 and has hit the runway for Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabanna, Frankie Morello, Banana Republic and more.

He has also been featured extensively in print for designers including Benetton, J. Crew, Donna Karan and Diesel, just to name a few. He’s even been on the cover of JMen, Glow and Vogue Hommes Japan. Dae Na was discovered by Wilson Model Management after being introduced to the owner by Hudson Taylor, a well-known photographer.

In 2015, he will be seen everywhere from Armani Exchange, Benetton, Donna Karan and more.


Born in Kenya, Malaika’s mom is responsible for her foray into the world of modeling. After watching a documentary about Premier Model Management, her mother called and arranged a meeting.

At the age of 17, Malaika was immediately signed and quickly began modeling internationally. She has walked innumerable runaways, including over 40 shows in Spring/Summer 2014 alone. Although she has modeled for everyone from Jean Paul Gaultier to Dolce & Gabanna to Victoria’s Secret, Burberry and Valentino, her biggest claim to fame is the result of her work with Prada. She is the first black model to book a Prada campaign since Naomi Campbell did in 1994 (the same year Malaika was born).

Recently, Malaika headed back to the runway at the Dior Pre-Fall 2015 show in Tokyo, and it’s safe to assume that she will continue to dominate the fashion runways in 2015.
