It’s fun to say something is “trash.” It’s less fun—in fact, it’s awful—to see trash, especially in the wild, or where people and animals try to live. Matty Bovan and A Sai Ta know all about it. As London natives and “Young Millennials,” the two British designers have grown up with climate change, landfills, and

It’s also, apparently, a part of an outerwear option, as Adwoa Aboah proved when she opened Williams’ show in a sperm-print fleece jacket and giant nun skirt.

The challenge of choosing between two really cute bags has finally been solved: Wear both. At least, that’s what happened on the fall-winter ’19 runways.

The list of luxury design houses that have come under fire for releasing designs that evoke racist imagery is growing at a rapid rate. Allow me to jog your memory.

Tom Ford made the case for the peep-toe platform, Ulla Johnson’s love affair with the 70s continues, and dad sneakers aren’t going anywhere. In fact, they went tie dye at Collina Strada.
There’s a famous Jewish proverb that says “you can’t dance at all weddings.” Even far from Mother Russia, that’s still true… though at least now, you can scroll through them on Instagram while sprawled on the couch.
