Fast Fashion Is Bad, So Is Shaming People Into Boycotting It
By

Fast fashion deserves the hate that comes its way. There’s exploitation of garment workers and acute lack of transparency pertaining to the supply chain. There are accusations of ‘greenwashing’ alongside a burgeoning culture of ‘rip offs’ because, well, creativity does not come cheap. 

A new study by the UK-based Royal Society for Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) has found that roughly half of the clothes on fast fashion websites are made from virgin plastics like nylon, acrylic and polyester. Who’s surprised? Literally nobody!

Fast fashion brands struggle to sustain a model built on ‘fair practices’ as they prioritise making trendy tees available to you for next to nothing. After all, nothing in this world comes for free and someone out there is paying the price for your cheap clothes. Clearly, fast fashion is dangerous and the problem needs fixing. So, stop buying it

Balenciaga's Trompe-L'Oeil sweatpants in red

Balenciaga’s Trompe-L’Oeil sweatpants in red

High end fashion label Balenciaga is facing a backlash, after critics said that a $1,190 (£860) pair of sweatpants it sells rips off black culture.

The Trompe L’Oeil pants feature a built-in pair of boxer shorts peeking out from the waistband, mimicking a style popularised by hip hop musicians.

A TikTok post which called the pants racist was viewed 1.6m times and black culture experts have raised concerns.

Balenciaga said it often combined wardrobe pieces into a single garment.

Examples include “jeans layered over tracksuit pants [and]button-up shirts layered over t-shirts”, said chief marketing officer Ludivine Pont.

“These Trompe L’Oeil trousers were an extension of that vision,” she said.

The trend for wearing low slung pants was popularised in the 1990s and 2000s.

The Matchy-Matchy Outfit Is Taking Over New York Fashion Week
By

At last, in-person fashion shows are back with street style stars, editors, and influencers taking over the sidewalks of New York City. And just a couple of days in, this season has brought out quite a few celebrities to the front rows. Fashionwise, there’s one thing they all seem to agree on: matching set outfits.

Katie Holmes showed up to Christian Siriano’s show in a glittery blazer and coordinating flared trousers. Ciara whipped out a fall-ready leather skirt and matching corset for the Dundas x Revolve presentation. And while we haven’t seen Selena Gomez officially attend any shows this season, she’s still showing off her best street style looks in New York City. Most recently she opted for a sleek knitted Nanushka set. It’s basic fashion math: One cute top plus an identical bottom equals sartorial success.

New York Fashion Week—the live and in-person runways, the days of street style inspiration—is back in full force after an extended, semi-digital hiatus. Finally.

For the editors, buyers, publicists, and models filling our feeds with runway videos this September, the Spring/Summer 2022 shows mark a change in pace. New York Fashion Week is one of the first events requiring more than sweatpants, for several days on end, in…a while. In the spirit of getting dressed again, we asked a group of NYFW’s notable attendees how they shopped for the front row’s resurgence. No two women are approaching their NYFW wardrobes with the same philosophy. Yet each found re-entry pieces guaranteed to stand out throughout fashion month, with a side of styling advice to match.
