The 2013 CFDA Award Nominees and Honorees


The CFDA and Swarovski partnered to reveal the 2013 CFDA Award nominations tonight at an event hosted by CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg and Nadja Swarovski. The nominees for the June 3 event are below, and like last year, the awards will be broadcast on the day following the event. Congratulations to all the nominees and honorees—with an especial nod to our very own Tim Blanks, winner of this year’s Eugenia Sheppard Media Award. If we do say so ourselves, well deserved.

Seeing a Pattern


On February 15, Phaidon Press will release Pattern, a book that highlights one hundred compelling fashion designers on the rise. Phaidon handed over the book’s curatorial duties to a group of ten designers and industry insiders (including stylist Keegan Singh, Preen’s Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi, the SHOWstudio team, and Business of Fashion‘s founder Imran Amed, just to name a few), each of whom chose ten talents to fill Pattern‘s pages.

The book (which is a follow-up to the 2005 fashion tome SAMPLE) features established designers (Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang, Christopher Kane, Sarah Burton), well-known emerging labels (Eddie Borgo, Thomas Tait, Creatures of the Wind, Mary Katrantzou, whose work is pictured above), and proper newbies (Simone Rocha, Marques’ Almeida, Phoebe English, Maarten van der Horst). The designers’ diverse aesthetics, techniques and outlooks are presented via detailed introductions, backstage, campaign and editorial photographs, and never-before-seen sketches, all of which serve to give readers an in-depth understanding of their work. “For me, seeing that the designers had a consistent point of view that’s true to their style was important,” said Singh, whose picks include Cushnie et Ochs (left), Olivier Rousteing of Balmain, Tabitha Simmons, Dominic Jones, and Gianvito Rossi, among others. “You know, it’s like Azzedine Alaïa. He has his thing, and he always sticks to it,” he added. So does Singh think the next Alaïa is somewhere between Pattern‘s covers? “It’s a possibility!” he laughed. At the very least, he notes, “the book gives the young designers a chance to reach broader audiences; it exposes them to a whole new group of people.”

Pattern: 100 Fashion Designers, 10 Curators will be available on February 15, on

Shop The Look: We Love The Nineties


In fashion years, when something is two decades old, it’s officially “vintage,” meaning that Marc Jacobs’ now-infamous 1992 grunge collection for Perry Ellis (i.e., the collection that made flannel shirts and ripped jeans a look) is officially ripe for reinterpretation. Coincidentally (or perhaps not), Phillip Lim and Dries Van Noten both turned out fresh takes on layered plaids and florals for Spring 2013, inspiring us to lace up some combat boots (we’ll take a heeled version these days) and cue up some Mudhoney. Shop our grungy gets from Alexander Wang, Ksubi, Rag & Bone, and more, below.

Get The Look: Graphic Design


Sweater dressing just got more fun. Designers have been studying their geometry and colorful graphic patterns have made their way onto comfy pullovers. Flare magazine fashion director Liz Cabral demonstrated how right these sweaters can be when she stepped out in London wearing a striped Joe Fresh number with a pair of leather trousers. And the marketplace is filled with covetable options from 3.1 Phillip Lim to Richard Nicoll to Clements Ribeiro. Here, we’ve rounded up four of favorite options. Maybe saying goodbye to summer isn’t so bad after all.
