Thamanyah, the fashion label designed by Ahmed Abdelrahman, has been on my radar for quite a long time. There is uniqueness in Abdelrahman’s approach to taking the traditional Middle Eastern dress, making it modern, and mixing it with Western sartorial codes. In his hands a white kandora turns black and gets paired with a fine wool bomber jacket. Not only such a combination results in a new menswear silhouette, but also both the Middle Eastern and the Western staples acquire a new meaning. It is no wonder then that Thamanyah has acquired a cult following in both worlds.
Vestoj and StyleZeitgeist have teamed up in a dialogue and series of critiques of recent events in fashion media to raise more wide-reaching questions about the state of contemporary fashion media – and what that says about our industry at large. In our second installment of this collaboration, we examine the recent political faux pas of the Chanel and Louis Vuitton resort collections, and the fashion media’s sycophancy.
One of the things we love at StyleZeitgeist is bringing interesting people from fashion and other cultural realms together, especially when these people are musicians. Bryan Black, known popularly as Black Asteroid has played at some of our events, and his heavy hitting industrial techno has kept us dancing more than once well into the night.
We would like to introduce to you Blyszak, an ethically-sourced buffalo horn and metal eyewear brand by Andrew Blyszak.

This week the Metropolitan Museum of Art unveils its new fashion exhibition, MANUS X MACHINA. We would like to introduce to you Flowen, a “Digitally Grown” jewelry brand based in Los Angeles, whose work will be presented at the exhibition. Flowen is inspired by the complexity of nature and grow their products from a precious metal powder transformed into separate pieces without byproducts, a technique akin to 3D printing, which are then assembled by artisans in Italy.

We would like to announce our collaboration with Vestoj – the Platform for Critical Thinking on Fashion. Through an ongoing exchange of articles about recent fashion developments we will aim to delve deeper into the state of fashion and the fashion media today.

It’s jewelry week at StyleZeitgeist, and today we would like to introduce you to MORATORIUM STUDIO, an independent silver and fine jewelry brand designed by Jeanette Lai in New York City. We love the clean, geometric lines of her designs that fall in line with our own philosophy of minimalism. We are equally enamored with her deceptively simple silver jewelry that also comes in blackened silver, and her fine, diamond encrusted creations. Actually, we liked it so much that we decided to offer a selection of MORATORIUM for sale on our e-commerce website, OtherFashion (other pieces are available by request). All jewelry is made to order in New York City.
