Let me start this by stating my true feelings: this is a horrible decision for the integrity of the fashion house. Virgil does not belong at Louis Vuitton for two main reasons. First of all, he can’t design for his own collections, so I’m horrified to see anything that he may produce. Secondly, he was … More Virgil at Louis Vuitton: “Creative Director”
Off-White, a complex and puzzling brand, most famously produces hyped clothing that has stormed the streetwear market. However, with Off-White being a fairly young brand, I was intrigued to see how Virgil would pull off a womenswear collection during Paris Fashion Week. The setting for this display was extremely bland; not in my taste, but I … More Off-White f/w 2019 Review: Interstitial Design
Wow… where do I start; the drones?, the zebra costume?, or maybe the countless jeweled designs? Dolce & Gabbana has done it again!

It screamed “FILA” coming down the runway, being another sad attempt at … More Fendi f/w 2019 Review: Fendi or Fila?
The buildup for this show was extensive. The multiple Instagram posts alluding to a mix of 1920’s American history and explicitness, with the addition of the countdown clock, generated a plethora of excitement and wonder… at least for me. My interest continued as I saw the set before the show started–an ascetically pleasing surgical room … More Gucci F/W 2019 Review: A Lack of Innovation
It seems pretty standard: menswear is for men and womenswear is for women. But why has society made this distinction? The ideas of femininity and masculinity being tied to a specific gender have poisoned the world of fashion. Assigning certain pieces of clothing to either a male or female suppresses creativity and creates barriers between self-expression and social … More Why Clothing should be Gender Less
