TikTok user and UCLA student Shay Rose created a pink social-distancing dress made of tulle that is, in fact, six-feet wide on each side. The 12-foot project took two months, and was done from home while quarantining in Southern California. Even though Shay has many design creations to be proud of, all of which you can see via video on her account, this gown makes a statement about our society and forces us to consider how far six-feet apart actually is. At the same time, it also speaks to our desire for fantasy and whimsical dresses during this time of unrest – perhaps even to the future of fashion. Shay spoke to POPSUGAR about her project, explaining that she had the idea for a social-distancing dress in the back of her mind since the summer. “What if there was a dress that made a social-distancing bubble all around you?” … Read the rest

The Stand di Stephen King: sul set con Nat Wolff

Il re dell’horror, Stephen King, torna in TV. Il romanzo The Stand diventa infatti un racconto a puntate in arrivo dal 3 gennaio su Starzplay (disponibile su Amazon Prime Video, Apple Tv, Rakuten e Vodafone Tv). Un inizio d’anno da brividi per questa storia post-apocalittica che racconta la vita sulla Terra all’indomani di una pandemia che ne ha quasi sterminato del tutto la popolazione. Nessun riferimento all’attualità: “L’ombra dello scorpione” (questa la traduzione italiana del titolo) ha oltre 40 anni, ma la contemporaneità della paura instillata nella vicenda rivive ancora oggi.

Il mondo è polarizzato tra Bene e Male, due fazioni che si danno strenua battaglia: da un lato c’è madre Abagail (Whoopi Goldberg), dall’altro l’Uomo Oscuro, Randall Flagg (Alexander Skarsgard), che

Sylvie’s Love costume designer Phoenix Mellow has what she calls a “bible of resources” when it comes to sourcing vintage – and that’s a very good thing, because the period film is set in the 1950s and early 1960s. Mellow, who’s also behind Black Panther and worked on Stranger Things and Mad Men, describes herself as obsessed with vintage clothing and shopping, calling up vendors from all over the country for projects. She worked closely with Tessa Thompson on Amazon Prime’s Sylvie’s Love, which tells an old-fashioned love story of a young woman (Sylvie, played by Thompson) who meets saxophone player Robert (Nnamdi Asomugha) in New York. Thompson, who also stars in Creed and Thor: Ragnarok, has an incredible style history of her own, boldly pushing boundaries with her red carpet fashion.

Mellow called dressing Thompson a “collaboration.” “She has her own sense of style … Read the rest

L'uniforme del nuovo anno immaginata da Prada è un set essenziale in jersey mélange composto da T-shirt a manica lunga e pantaloni joggers con elastico alla caviglia. Il top e devorato da un taglio a V alla base del collo e uno orizzontale sopra il petto, con una tasca a toppa applicata sul lato sinistro. Presentato in passerella con un paio di stringate nere di pelle spazzolata, l'ensemble, che a primo impatto sembra più uno strato di sotto che un vero look per uscire, è il nuovo outfit di tendenza per gli amanti dello stile minimal.

Fashion designer Alexander Wang, 37, has been accused of sexual misconduct on many different accounts, starting with a post that documents stories from anonymous sources on Shit Model Management, an Instagram that offers models a platform to come forward about issues in the industry.

“Instead of letting these occurrences be swept under the rug, it is time to do something about this. Please unfollow @alexwangny & @alexanderwangny to show your support to the victims. It is time to hold abusers in the fashion industry accountable. Male and trans models are often overlooked in the conversations of sexual assault in the modeling industry, but not today. We can’t let famous people get away with sexual assault just because they’re on a pedestal. They need to be held accountable just like every other abuser,” the post read, captioning off a series of screen shots from DMs that detail records of Alexander … Read the rest

Questo primo Punto di vista, proprio alla partenza del nuovo anno, è una buona occasione anche per un nuovo, ultimo saluto a Enzo Mari, nonché per ricordare il suo modo di progettare. Paradigmatico è in tale senso l’esempio che offre uno dei progetti realizzati da Magis. Disegnata nel 2002, la sedia impilabile Mariolina con struttura in tubo d’acciaio e seduta e schienale formati in polipropilene per stampaggio a iniezione, struttura tubolare cromata e la versione Mono (nelle foto), che si distingue per la struttura in tubo di acciaio verniciato poliestere, è infatti uno dei classici progetti “senza tempo”  o meglio al di là del tempo e delle mode, così tipici di Mari

Mariolina di Magis

Il che non vuol dire che l’artista-designer non fosse attento all’innovazione. Tutt’altro. Se infatti Mariolina ricorda lo stile degli anni 50 – magari le forme delle seggioline che stavano dietro ai banchi di

Although 2020 has been difficult, the year awakened us to blindspots that fashion brands have and taught us a valuable lesson in where we spend our dollars. Every time I’ve made a purchase this year, I chose to see it as an extension of my beliefs and only supported companies that shared my values. I value companies that put people, animals, and the environment first. I value companies that work to dismantle systemic racism and grant the same opportunities to people regardless of their race or gender. I believe the impression these brands have left on consumers is too great to ignore. My hope is that shoppers will not retreat back to old ways or mindsets that cause them to put convenience first in the new year. Keep reading for some useful reminders that should encourage you to do your part when it comes to shopping smart.

C’è una luce alla fine del tunnel. E mentre ci prepariamo, o almeno ci proviamo, a ritrovare un po’ di normalità (con un nuova prospettiva su quello che è veramente importante), è arrivato il momento di riscoprire quei capi che ci piace indossare fuori di casa. E il nuovo mood propone un gusto 1970s, e capi che trasmettono una nuova energia. 

Dalla nuova minigonna alla nuance del momento, ecco i capi chiave per il 2021. 

1. Pantaloni a zampa

Nensi Dojaka primavera estate 2021, Proenza Schouler primavera estate 2021, Charlotte Knowles primavera estate 2021

I pantaloni anni 70 che hanno letteralmente dominato in passerella alla Paris Fashion Week primavera estate 2021 sono tornati, ma oggi, sfoggiate dalle nuove generazioni (vale a dire, con mascherina regolamentare e distanziamento sociale ), le rivisitazioni dei classici jeans bootcut e i modelli scampanati diventano un nuovo trend genderless che guarda con un pizzico di

Men usually wonder what takes so much time for women to dress up but they end up realising that all their wait is worth it because when women come out dressed, they not only look perfect but beautiful in their own ways. This is a style that originated in the 80s ( as part of the grunge music) with a heavy emphasis on layering and oversized silhouettes with a casual nonchalant attitude. The staples of this style include leather jackets, flannel shirts, metallic jackets, ripped denim, crop tops, cool slogan t-shirts, combat boots, fishnet stockings, beanies, mom jeans, and slouchy sweaters. Baggy, torn and messy clothes are constants in this working-class fashion style. Of all the beauty skin care tips for staying young, one of the most important involves using sun protection. Ideally, you should stay out of the sun as much as possible – this includes tanning. If you … Read the rest

Chris Pine returns as Diana Prince’s love interest Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman 1984, which is now available to stream on HBO Max if you haven’t already joined in on all the ’80s fun. Rivaling Diana’s white wrap dress as the most fashionable moment in the film is Steve’s own wardrobe – we watch on gladly as he dresses up in retro athleisure look after retro athleisure look.

Costume designer Linda Hemming broke down the outfit we see him wearing for the longest amount of time in an interview with GoldeGlobes.com. The black nylon Members Only jacket and custom matching pants are finished with red, white, and blue Nike Cortez sneakers and a gray fanny pack that has caught the eyes of Twitter users and Wonder Woman fans everywhere. “Chris Pine’s fanny pack is everything,” you’ll probably hear from friends who have already seen the movie. Pine confirmed … Read the rest
