Is the $185 Prada ‘paperclip’ fashion’s latest mundane must-have?8h Is the $185 Prada ‘paperclip’ fashion’s latest mundane must-have?
The Guardian
From the Supreme Brick to the Christopher Kane’s cable ties, fashion has long found beauty, humour – and profit – in putting an expensive spin on everyday objects Good design, it is said, should render an object invisible. Until you whack a designer logo on it, at which point it becomes the opposite: a talking point, a must-have, and (in this instance) the only Prada item that you could conceivably afford. That, we’ll hazard, is the thinking behind its

Who wears the skirt? Anyone. The fashion world goes gender-free 22 Jun 1:43pm Who wears the skirt? Anyone. The fashion world goes gender-free
The Guardian
Fashion brands compete for the co-ed badge this summer dressing men in puffy gowns and blouses for the catwalk Fashion reflects the times we live in, said Coco Chanel, and the Exeter schoolboys and the French bus drivers prove her right. We are more relaxed about gender rules, these days. A century after women started wearing trousers and 19 years after David Beckham was ridiculed for wearing a sarong, the last taboo of fashion – men in skirts – is being swept away. Zara has capitalised on the market for clothes that can be worn by men or women, offering a gender-neutral fashion range. And the further up the fashion food chain you go, the more the boundaries between menswear and womenswear evaporate.

But in this age of boring bob blues and graham greens, a primary-coloured sock paired with a pair of stonewashed jeans or a dull old brown shoe is the male equivalent of a handbag or statement earring.

Gina Fratini obituary 8 Jun 8:24am Gina Fratini obituary

Dress designer who specialised in flattering, flowing garments that attracted princesses among her clienteleTextiles were not what fashion was about in the first half of the 1960s, when an adequately outrageous outfit could be extracted from a short, narrow length of Acrilan, Dicel or Bri-Nylon. That was not the style of Gina Fratini, who has died aged 85; her interest was in the stuffs themselves, preferably natural fibres, in quantity. She became a professional designer in 1964 and was ready with bolts of cotton and silk as skimpiness in synthetics peaked and lost novelty around 1967. Fratini then became an important player in a London-based, fabric-intensive, fantasy style over the next few years when it was unremarkable to go about daily business dressed as an illustration by

Homage or copy? Why fashion (especially Gucci) loves Dapper Dan 2 Jun 12:37pm Homage or copy? Why fashion (especially Gucci) loves Dapper Dan
The Guardian
When Gucci allegedly ‘borrowed’ a design from Harlem imitation artist Dapper Dan, on its cruise catwalk, critics were quick to point it out. But is it possible to bootleg a bootleg? There were 115 looks in Gucci’s resort show this week, but skip to No 33 for the top-line story. Model Alana Henry is wearing skinny jeans, gold high heels, a turban and 70s-style sunglasses. It is her jacket that is causing controversy – with its fur body and super-sized leg-o’-mutton sleeves made of shiny fabric covered with Gucci’s famous double-G monogram. On first viewing, it looked like luxe bordering on the absurd – AKA standard in creative director Alessandro Michele’s world – but a closer look, found on social media, showed it to be remarkably similar to another designer, one more known for his cult appeal than catwalk shows: Dapper Dan.

You feel as if you’re wearing a pair of lovingly mashed up brown paper bags that could disintegrate without warning Ah, espadrilles. They’re the Blanche DuBois of summer shoes. Beautiful, but a bit flimsy to wear outside of a St Tropez dream sequence from Ab Fab. Walk around in them and you feel as if you’re wearing a pair of lovingly mashed up brown paper bags that could disintegrate without warning. Still, if you want a piece of summer footwear that’s purely decorative, and your half-mules look as if they need to be put down, you could do worse than a pair of these. Very “disgraced billionaire tycoon, evading tax on his last remaining yacht”, if that’s the look you’re after.

The other Macron moderniser: how France 2017 updated first lady fashion 9 May 11:34am The other Macron moderniser: how France 2017 updated first lady fashion
The Guardian
She’s not a ‘trophy wife’, and she’s not a ‘school-run mum’. Does Brigitte Trogneux’s style signal a new era for the political wife? Leaving her home in Le Touquet to cast her ballot in the French presidential elections on Sunday morning, Brigitte Trogneux wore a sleek Louis Vuitton navy coat, with a face-flattering flash of silver leather in the raised biker-styled collar. She was still wearing the coat that evening, by which time she was the country’s first lady elect, raising hands in triumph on stage with her husband Emmanuel Macron. Ours is visual culture. When we get dressed, we take a position. Trogneux, who has a longstanding personal interest in fashion and has been a Paris front row regular for years, knows this very well indeed; that coat was a deliberate choice, and an interesting one for several reasons. First, the biker-style collar made it a subtly rebellious look where, traditionally, political wives choose for election day dutiful, church-on-Sunday coats or dull, senior-management-meeting ensembles. Second, Trogneux has worn this coat many times before, including – with leather trousers, that time – to Paris fashion week in March last year, so the choice emphasises Trogneux’s own taste (this is from her wardrobe, not by order of an image consultant) and industry connections. Third, the coat is by Louis Vuitton, France’s biggest luxury brand, and reinforces the Macron message of a progressive administration comfortable with big business.

Motifs familiar from childhood museum trips feature in cruise collection dominated by the colour gold at Grand Palais show Chanel’s latest show took place in the Grand Palais in Paris – but in Karl Lagerfeld’s hands, it was transformed into an environment more suited to the likes of Plato and Socrates. To showcase the Modernity of Antiquity – an addition to the collections shown between autumn/winter and spring/summer offerings – the space featured ionic columns, a Greek island sunset as backdrop and an impressive olive tree. The inspiration: the Parthenon and the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion. France may be on the verge of a political shift but Chanel – arguably the jewel in French fashion’s crown – can still be relied on for a blockbuster show.

28 Apr 8:00am What I wore this week: the social skirt
The Guardian
This skirt is the bottom-half equivalent of the silk shirt, in that it elevates separates into something with a bit more status The most important labels on clothes are not the stitched-in ones, but the ones in your head. The Party Dress that has the power to propel you out of sensible I-should-really-get-an-early-night doldrums and on to the dance floor. The Smart Jacket which straightens your spine and stiffens your resolve. The Holiday Sandals that serve as a Post-it note reminder to get a move on and book that pedicure. The Social Skirt was a new one on me until a few weeks back. It came to yours truly via LK Bennett, who has christened a new category of summer fashion. The Social Skirt is the bottom-half equivalent of the silk shirt, in that it elevates separates into something with a bit more status. Separates tend to be the taken for granted bit of our wardrobes. They just sort of rub along together in the belly of your wardrobe. You know which jeans you want to wear and so you pull out a top to make up the numbers.

What I wore this week: socks as a fashion statement 31 Mar 8:00am What I wore this week: socks as a fashion statement
The Guardian
A ribbed sock and a chunky sandal has been a niche fashion-nerd trend for a while. Now it’s gone mass Hey, don’t let the photo put you off. Hear me out. Socks as a fashion statement are a trend, but you don’t have to go quite as far as I have done, and wear sport socks in public. In real life, I would be wearing plain ribbed socks, or possibly fishnet or lace ones if I was feeling particularly jazzy. But in a photo on this page you’d hardly notice those; it would look as if I had written my 345th love letter to the ankle boot. So here I am, in a sport sock. Made you look, right? Almost everything in fashion is a comeback, but I’m not sure that socks have ever had a moment before. The associations of socks are all vaguely loser-ish. Smelly socks, lost socks, novelty socks. Keeping your socks on in bed. Socks are not public-facing clothes, but neither do they have the thrill of a stocking. Hosiery can be a status symbol – silk stockings as a symbol of rationing-defying luxury; the late-20th-century obsession with expensive velveteen opaques – but until recently the only chic way to wear socks was as an invisible layer under trousers long enough to cover them.

This is how fashion’s A-star students virtuoso-signal their brilliance Quite like Fab ice lollies; never thought I’d want to dress like one. Well, never say never. Fashion keeps on pushing the colour envelope, and two colours together is no longer enough. Tricolore dressing is the new frontier. Fashion’s return to technicolour after decades when it was essentially a bit naff to wear anything that wasn’t black is a trickledown from the street-style peacocks who use colourful dressing as a way to get noticed. The erosion of the status of black began when it started to be outranked by navy, and went mass when Kim Kardashian underwent a style makeunder which involved wearing grey or beige head to toe. (A full house of Trump red has been on a few catwalks recently, so we will have to deal with that at some point. Consider yourself warned.)

Forget everything you thought you knew about earrings, bracelets and pendants – the bijouterie rulebook has been rewritten for spring/summer 2017 Diamonds are no longer a girl’s best friend. Women who once wore double strands of pearls now have multiple ear piercings. Silver and gold go together. Welcome to the new age of jewellery. Don’t worry. This is not one of those “There are no rules, just be yourself!” articles. We all know those are a lie, right? There are always rules. Fashion is about making it clear that you know them. Nailing this season’s look – be it the right trainers, modern brow arch or correct number of buttons done up on your shirt – says to the world: I know what’s up. You walk into a room and, before you even speak, your message is clear. “Modern life? I’ve got this.”

18 Mar 8:05pm Gucci, Versace, D&G ... now top brands target fashion for kids
The Guardian
The designer childrenswear market is thriving even as parents count penniesTo the serious fashionista, they are some of this summer’s most coveted items: a Carretto Con Rose silk embroidered dress by Dolce & Gabbana, a Gucci peacock feather jacquard coat and a pastel-hued Chloé silk crêpe boho dress with tassel trims are all top of the wishlist for those with an eye on trends. At £2,400, £1,340 and £419 respectively, this capsule wardrobe of seasonal must-haves doesn’t come cheap. And demand for these high-ticket garments is all the more astonishing because they are scaled-down versions of catwalk pieces, designed for style-conscious children. Childrenswear is booming: in 2015 sales reached $135.6bn worldwide and accounted for 12% of the overall clothing market, according to research firm Euromonitor. For the past five years, growth in the childrenswear market has outpaced both men’s and womenswear. The childrenswear market in the UK is forecast to rise a further 13.2% in the next five years, to £6.1bn.

Dior’s new creative director – the first female in its 70-year history to hold the post – is fascinated by modern women and how she can reflect their lives in the clothes she makes It is Christian Dior who gazes down gravely from the portrait in oils, whose dresses are in the silver-framed photographs that sit at an elegant slant beneath the white orchids, and whose name is stamped in distinctive sharp-serifed font on the reception desk at Dior HQ on Rue de Marignan. But the living, breathing creative force of today’s Christian Dior, who darts in shaking the rain out of her tousled bob, is a woman. What’s more, Maria Grazia Chiuri is nothing like the full-skirted, doe-eyed figure whose image is conjured up by the name Dior. She wears a black sheepskin coat, flat buckled black shoes and black trousers with a Mod-sharp crease.

Concerned about the very issue of tuna bycatch, she ended up, with the help of her father Joe Biden (then a Democratic senator in Delaware), on the floor of Congress talking to Republican senators about the environmental problem. She was about eight or nine. Still, it seems, Congress listened and soon the Dolphin Protection Consumer Information Act (which aims to minimise dolphin fatalities during fishing) was passed.

Yes, the kitten heel is back – but how do you avoid looking like an early noughties throwback? Oh, the bliss of a kitten heel. Enough of a lift to add two inches of leg, which, not to tar the rest of you with my short brush, makes a significant difference. Enough “polish” (dreadful word, sorry) that you look “done” (again, yuck, but you know what I mean). And yet comfortable enough to wear all day, safe to cross the road at a clip when the lights are about to change without putting yourself in mortal peril, low-key enough that you don’t stimulate midlife crisis gossip in the office. What’s not to love? Well, that’s exactly the problem. The kitten heel is a bit too nice. Too polite. It is easy and amenable, helpful and practical – the trophy shoe of duty, not dancefloors. (Not for nothing is it beloved of the royal family.) It lacks edge, which is exactly why the kitten heel fell from fashion favour a decade ago. And why its comeback,

In a season when slogans of female empowerment are a catwalk must-have and movie stars have been ripped off moodboards in favour of suffragettes, Prada came roaring back to life in Milan on Thursday. Her recent collections have lacked a little urgency, but this one was a punchy reminder that Prada was using fashion as a way of talking about the female experience many years before it became fashionable.

London fashion week featured tartan, corsets and formidable women as a new take on British identity came into focusI was early for Burberry on Monday evening, so as I waited I spent some time gazing at the monumental bronzes in the Henry Moore exhibition being hosted in the show space at Makers House. I’m no art critic, so what do I know, but they felt to me to be as much depictions of rolling hills and dales as they were of women. The graceful but uneven humps, the Durdle Door peepholes, the silent, gruff Jurassic grandeur. Surely, I thought, I’m looking at the British landscape, as well as a reclining nude? Moore’s wartime drawings of Londoners sleeping on tube station platforms have a straight-up Blitz spirit patriotism, but there is a sense of nationhood in these sculptures that reminded me of the radical roots of the ramblers and Stanley Baldwin talking about England in 1924: “The tinkle of the hammer on the anvil in the country smithy, the corncrake on a dewy morning ... the wild anemones in the woods in April.”

She’s not yet a household name but the 28-year-old is on the way after her voluminous dresses stole the show at London fashion weekIt was a day packed with not-to-be-missed shows at London fashion week.

But all the anticipation on Saturday was for one twentysomething London designer who has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence. Molly Goddard may not be a household name – yet – but she is already award-winning, and worn by celebrities. Why is she the name to know? Frills are the look of the moment, and Goddard is the master. Since setting up her label in 2014, Goddard’s brightly coloured tulle and silk smock dresses – often using up to 30 metres of fabric – have quickly become a trademark, one that fashion insiders instantly recognised as the real deal, on both a creative and commercial level.

The new sleeve cuts through the white noise of endless versions of clothes we already have I really, really love sleeves. With the caveat that this is fashion, so don’t hold me to it next year. Right now, they are a newfound passion. Some weeks I wear the things that demand our attention because they are on trend, and I smile in the photos but then I write rude things about why you shouldn’t wear them. But today I feel unadulterated love for the interesting sleeve. There is an uncomplicated joy in a trend that pulls focus away from the body on to the actual clothes. My least favourite type of fashion is the kind that is talking in code about being thin. A crop top is technically a fashion statement, but really you’re talking about your abs. This is as treacherous and tedious as clean eating posing as something to do with vitamin intake. The statement sleeve is free of sneaky body-related agenda.

Go tuck yourself – and 10 ways to do it 31 Jan 1:13pm Go tuck yourself – and 10 ways to do it
The Guardian
The Mullet, the Viennetta and the Mushroom – a fashion trend for tucking in tops in stylish ways has made getting dressed a minefield. Fear not. With our handy guide, the right way to tuck is crystal clearTucking. It used to be simple: in or out. Neat and tidy or an act of slobbish rebellion. But now, in fashion, the rules have become a lot more complicated. Take a look at any street-style star and you’ll notice that their tucking technique – although designed to look casual, done/undone – has been painstakingly thought out. Some tuck a snatch of jumper into their skirt. Others shove hoodies – even puffa jackets – into their jeans. It’s all over the catwalks, too: the recent Louis Vuitton menswear show was a half-tucker’s paradise. Gucci, too, played with a litany of tucks in womenswear. You could say there’s something competitive about fashion’s struggle to dream up new ways of tucking your top in: a sort of one-tuckmanship, if you will.

Josef Frank, an Austrian architect, designer and theorist, coined the term “accidentism” in 1958 (although he practised it throughout his career). His philosophy started as a reaction to the bland homogeny of postwar European design. The idea is that if you love something, it will look good next to something else you love; that comfort should prevail over practicality.

What I wore this week: a naval jacket | Jess Cartner-Morley 27 Jan 8:00am What I wore this week: a naval jacket | Jess Cartner-Morley
The Guardian
The abbreviated shape looks more modern with trousers than a hip-length blazer, and adds briskness worn over dresses Fashion craves newness, which is a problem when winter shows no sign of shoving off. I’m happy in polo necks and never fall out of love with ankle boots, but I’m swiftly running out of patience with coats. This problem is partly caused by the madness that is August in the modern fashion industry, when the shops are full of coats months before we need them. If we could push back the start of coat season this year until October, it might not feel like it has quite so thoroughly outstayed its welcome. But back to the here and now. What you don’t want to do at this stage is buy another coat. You’ll get too little wear out of it to justify its purchase, but too much for it to feel new and exciting next autumn. More cheering to think about a new jacket. Because, while you will have to take a coat when you leave the house for the day for ages, there will be weekend days in the nearish future when the sun comes out, it’s mild, and you can go on a local errand without a proper coat, secure in the knowledge that you won’t get caught out shivering at a bus stop after dark.

In the noughties, velour had a similar trajectory to Scissor Sisters: cool, then so ubiquitous you hyperventilated every time Ana Matronic popped up with a raised eyebrow. Unlike the I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ hitmakers, and probably because velvet is back on the map, velour has returned through fashion’s back door, with sports tops in the fabric making a bid for the athleisure crown. But, like a pregnant woman and her bump, that’s no excuse for anyone to invade your space and rub your chest, just because you look like a teddy bear now.

Street protesters and fashion designers have fallen in step with their slogans. What are they saying?There has been a recent trend in fashion that has been all too easy to mock and dismiss: men and women have been wearing their fourth-wave feminist credentials on their T-shirts. T-shirts with feminist slogans have been sold by Etsy and Asos; they have even made it to the Paris fashion week schedule. Fashion and feminism don’t always get along, which is precisely why what’s happening right now is significant. When women on protest marches are wearing the same feminist-slogan T-shirts as models on the Paris catwalks, we have, what we call at fashion week, a moment.

Karl Lagerfeld finds beauty beyond the thin with iconoclastic collection that features ovoid-shaped skirts and padded-out hips Hemlines go up and down, colours come and go, supermodels rise and fall, but in one crucial respect catwalk fashion looks the same from season to season – the silhouette is always tall, and always thin. So Karl Lagerfeld’s latest haute couture collection, shown in the Grand Palais in Paris on Tuesday, was as iconoclastic as fashion gets. By sculpting skirts into ovoid shapes and padding out slender hips, Lagerfeld proposed a new catwalk silhouette. The designer who once criticised the singer Adele for being “a little too fat” seemed finally ready to see beauty beyond a reed-thin outline.

Prints are an easy way to make a statement during your warm-up stretches, be they all over (Yasmin’s palm print outfit and Michele’s neon, apres-ski look), or in moderation (the blue paint splotches on Pam’s leggings). Alternatively, go for the off-duty dancer look: see Alice’s cap and running top with hoodie round the waist, or Saul’s bra top and high-waisted leggings.

The Northern Irish designer provided a colourful, cosy collection aimed at those looking to forget the events of the past year Given the year that passed and the gateway timing of this season’s London men’s fashion shows – post-Brexit, days before Trump moves in, and during this atypically warm, wet January – there has doubtless been pressure on designers to create collections that reflect this sociopolitical context while managing to cheer us up. And perhaps a crushing pressure on JW Anderson, arguably Britain’s most pioneering and internationally beloved designer, who routinely breaks boundaries like they were twigs. The show itself, held in a labyrinthine parquet-floored room, which saw models dart from corners and vanish behind the next while brushing your knees with various knitted trimmings – had a non-hierarchical, interactive mood, promoting the sort of community you want on a damp Sunday morning when in dire need of a visual boost.

Guardian fashion writers share their hopes off breaking out of their comfort zones Full disclosure: my style resolution isn’t exactly bleeding-edge fashion stuff. It’s more a way to make my day just that little bit better. I have a long history of dressing in a way that mismatches the weather in a spectacular way. If winter is about to turn into spring I will invariably be found in wooly tights. If it’s raining, there will definitely be some sort of suede pump on my feet. And as anyone who has spent any time with me knows, I have an aversion to proper winter coats. Not to mention umbrellas. But 2017 is going to be different. I will become one of those people who looks at the weather app before I get dressed and I have already invested in a coat – well, a jacket, anyway – that I actually like wearing and that keeps me warm.

The Guardian
This was the year that Vogue launched its documentary, put a Royal and a plus-sized model on the cover, turned 100 and its US sister publically backed Hillary. All in all, it was a big year for the fashion bible You could not have predicted, looking at the January 2016 issue of British Vogue, that this was the dawn of most tumultuous year in its century-long history. Gigi Hadid smiled out from her first cover, wholesomely covered-up in a weather-appropriate Breton-striped knit and classic black leather jacket, while coverlines promised to help you in the traditional post-Christmas challenge to find your waist and to discover the best cold-weather skincare. So far, so Vogue. Traditionally, it is the European editions that get the magazine’s name in the headlines. The nipple count in any summer issue of French Vogue is enough to get the internet hot under the collar on any slow news day, although nothing can match the furore around the infamous 2010 shoot featuring primary-school-age girls in heavy eye makeup, low-cut dresses and high heels. Italian Vogue got into hot water in 2012 for a “Haute Mess” shoot, which drew accusations of racism for its dabbling in the imagery of ghetto fabulousness; two years earlier, Steven Meisel shot Kristen McMenamy as a glamorously dead bird, an homage to the animals killed by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill which wasn’t to everyone’s taste.
