We would like to present to you Thom Browne’s Fall/Winter 2017 Women’s New York collection backstage.

Two weeks ago I met with Takahira Miyashita, the Japanese fashion designer of the mens brand TAKAHIRAMIYASHITATheSoloist. Miyashita’s original brand Number (N)ine made a mark on men’s fashion during the past decade when menswear was at its height in terms of reinterpreting youth culture.
When last year the Belgian designer Raf Simons was finally officially appointed as the creative director of Calvin Klein, the American brand known for its minimalist aesthetic, the fashion world was elated, and those of us in New York doubly so. The New York fashion scene has long been starved of creative talent of Simons’s caliber.
During the men’s fashion week in Paris some days ago instead of his usual quiet dinner at home, Rick Owens threw a dance party the day after the show. The occasion was a new video released by Christeene, a drag singer who is Owens’s favorite. The video featured Owens and his partner Michele Lamy doing what they do best, terrorizing accepted aesthetic and sexual norms. You can see the video on Dazed’s website, so we prefer to stick with the imagery from the party itself. Our crew was in attendance, bien sur. Enjoy!
