The clothes are meant to be a backdrop, a blank canvas, so the wearer can play with color and accessories to change the look and make it […]

Scene: Door bursts open and wind sweeps into the room. An out of breath woman enters with glasses on top of her head, carrying a stack of books and magazines while trying to balance a cup of tea without spilling it. She drops everything, except the tea, on the sofa and collapses into an Aeron […]
To begin, there was no running fashion narrative, save for the far too evident bangle, reinvented in only a few clever forms and, heaven help us, seen on nearly every runway.

What happens when the fashion for statement jewels retires to place where all trends are laid to rest, ie, the back of our closets? We will need a new one won’t we? This image from the Armani Prive runway is the harbinger of things to come: blending color, and yet the sparkle shines through. Above, […]
