Parisian fashion collective Andrea Crews debuted their AW14 collection last week in a video directed by Nicolas Davenel. Featuring dancer/choreographer Ylva Falk, ‘Stay True’ is a post-utopian mediation in Paris’ 13th Arrondissement populated by the districts’ youth at twilight. We’re telling you this because guess what: that collection is coming straight to you in our new pop up, The BULLETT Shop, at 47 Walker St. in Tribeca. Go. Now.
Maya Fuhr and Nicole Dagenais, two creative women from Toronto, embarked on a project that would involve peeking inside the imaginations of some kindred spirits, which included artists and photographers like Agathe Snow, Jeanette Hayes, and Sara Cwynar. What they got were school notes, teen diaries, sketchbooks, doodles, and some pretty sweet pics, all showcasing each artist’s unique personality and art aesthetic. We dare you to look.

We’re very aware that New York Fashion Week ended a couple of weeks ago, and that on the Internet space-time continuum, any coverage of NYFW-related events can be considered stale. But unlike most of her counterparts, photographer Robin Siegel shoots on film, which means her photos take time to develop. Remember that? Developing film? Of course not, because your brain, like ours, has been rewired as a hive of impatience and there’s no going back. but enough of that. Here’re a very pretty gallery of photos from New York Fashion, featuring some familiar faces.
During London Fashion Week, which wrapped up last week, photographer Paul Phung used his trusty camera to capture all the goodness that happens when an army of creative people get together to celebrate style. This is what he saw.
SEE WHAT DEVELOPS: Dispo cam shots from our London Fashion Week Party with New Ultra Group. With music by Endgame, Ana Caprix, Mike Levitt and more, the night was strictly London and the Prosecco flowed well into the next day. <3
New Ultra Game (loop version 1.3) as shown at Showroom part of London Fashion Week twenty fourteen is a commissioned 3D interactive presentation project by CGI artist Clifford Sage.
Cara Delevingne, the fashion world’s unpredictable wild child, just took a picture of herself with her smartphone while walking the runway during the Giles show at London Fashion Week. That is what kids these days refer to as a #selfie, and based on the comments on this VFiles Instagram, it’s a thing.
We’re not exactly sure what an “Air Yeezy II Red October” is, but apparently it’s worth a lot of money.
Just kidding. It’s a shoe. And because it was designed by Kanye West or something, a lot of people would like to wear it. The first Air Yeezys came out in 2009, and sold at retail for $250. Since then, this version has been anticipated breathlessly by so-called sneakerheads, and Nike made the surprise announcement on Twitter today that the shoes were now available on its website for the reasonable price of $245. They sold out in 10 minutes.
Due to the demand, some people have started selling the shoes for as much as $7,5oo on sites like eBay. If you think that is disturbing amount of money to pay for two shoes, then you are a person who is right. (via Gawker)
A man wearing a leopard-print, jockstrap/g-string thingy crashed Prabal Gurung’s show at New York Fashion Week yesterday. The streaker, who also wore a crown, a coat, and red tube socks, galloped onto the runway in front of a typically dour crowd of fashion world types. (According to the New York Times, Anna Wintour refused to give a fuck.) The man, who was eventually dragged off by security, was identified as Ukranian prank journalist Vitaly Sediuk, who has a history of pulling stunts in and around celebrity-populated events, sometimes even using said celebrities as props. For instance:
Here’s the time Sediuk got slapped out by Will Smith for trying to give him a peck at the Men in Black III premiere. (Smith addressed the incident on Letterman.
And here’s the time Sediuk crashed the Grammy stage before an Adele acceptance speech:
Here he is grovelling at the feet to Archduke DiCaprio at the Santa Barbara Film Festival.
WWD spoke to Gurung after the show, and it appears the designer took the whole thing in stride: “”What can you do? Would I have liked it to be seamless? Yes. I hope he got his 15 seconds and I hope he got some pleasure out of it, I really do. And that’s all I can ask for.”
