In the streets and on Tommy Ton’s pages in the latest issue of Style.com/Print, jeans are more dressed-down than ever—shredded, distressed, and faded to a fare-thee-well. But it was a different story on the Spring runways, where polished denim ruled. At his Louis Vuitton swan song, Marc Jacobs gave dungarees a couture twist with jet-beaded pockets. Olivier Rousteing upped the ante at Balmain, trussing soft, faded chambray with major metal chains. And Joseph Altuzarra sent out tailored pieces featuring indigo prints in the style of Japan’s elaborate “boro” patchworks. Dark-rinse denim was also in the spotlight at Acne Studios, Versace, and Derek Lam. Even the Valentino designers got in on the act, whipping up a ball skirt (actually, full-leg culottes) from the stuff.
Rising photographer Boo George has been on fashion’s radar for some time now: He’s long been championed by editors in his native United Kingdom, and shot one of his biggest supporters, Katie Grand (alongside Marc Jacobs, backstage at Louis Vuitton), for the third issue of Style.com/Print. Now, here in the U.S., W has signed on, too. George is the winner of its first annual The Shot competition, a partnership with the International Center for Photography. In celebration of his win, images from George’s knitwear story from the September issue of W are now on sale at Artsy. If you’ve ever pasted editorial pages on your bedroom walls—and happen to find yourself with a low four-figure sum to spare—a George can be yours. Shots of Suvi Koponen, Meghan Collison, Irina Kravchenko, and Juliana Schurig, styled by Edward Enninful, are all available, in limited edition, beginning today; the September issue of W will appear on newsstands Thursday.
There’s a new member of the Fashion East family. Today, it was announced that Lulu Kennedy—the founder of the London-based young designer initiative and one of the movers and shakers featured in latest issue of Style.com/Print—along with the Fashion East selection panel, has chosen to add Ashley Williams to the program’s Fall 2013 lineup. Having recently graduated from London’s University of Westminster, Williams enlisted close pals Pixie Geldof and Alice Dellal to walk in her collegiate show. Naturally, her famous models caught a few eyes. But the up-and-comer’s kitschy prints and retro rockabilly looks were attention-worthy all on their own. Williams joins Claire Barrow and Ryan Lo, both of whom made their Fashion East debut last season.
