Over the past few seasons camo has been working its way from army fatigues to high fashion, popping up in many high-end designer collections. Although anyone can partake in this camouflage trend, not everyone knows how to wear this print properly. Unless you're actually in the army you should avoid wearing the print from head to toe and looking like you just walked off the barracks. To make sure you avoid insulting the armed forces and everyone else who has to look at you, check out this guide on how to incorporate the camo print into your outfit in a stylish and modern way.
For those of you unfamiliar with the genius of Rick Owens, allow us to introduce you. This American born but Paris based designer is worshiped by the fashion elite for his innovative, edgy, slightly Goth aesthetic. For Spring 2012, Rick introduced his 100mm Mohawk Wedge Boot for men, his first heeled boot for men. (For those of you too lazy to Google it, 100mm translate to just under 4 inches.) Although visionary, Rick Owens was not the first to introduce the heeled boot trend. Jeffrey Campbell, the beloved footwear brand, had its Areas men’s boot with its 2.5-inch heel. Other designers who have embraced the heeled boot trend are Gareth Pugh and Alain Quilici.
Coco Rocha is wasting no time in beating Lara Stone (who wil have Ricardo Tisci of Givenchy design her gown) to the altar. Rocha recently tweeted her engagement to her interior designer, James Conran - and now she's tweeting about how she convinced designer, Zac Posen to create her wedding dress for her June 9th wedding. Her tweet reads:
We've always had a feeling that there may have been more behind the prominent red gloves and lips at Givenchy's Fall 2010 show. Pure evil, is it?
Apparently, Givenchy wanted an exclusive deal with several models to walk in their show. Most of the models Givenchy hand-picked were cancelled 24 hours before the Sunday show - by way of email.
An anonymous agent claims Givenchy booked 5 of their models without an exclusive fee - just 1500 Euros in payment and press - whilst making the girls pay their own hotel fees. In the email, Givenchy cited a "fit problem," as their reason for cancellation.
Does this look familiar to you?
The headpiece, that is.
And thankfully, Suzy Menkes wasn't as bored during this show as she was during Dior's.
With sequins and sparkles bedazzling numerous gowns - we barely noticed Lara Stone's trend of couture shorts, in addition to the plethora of risque jumpsuits that walked the runway.
And of course, the ending swept us off our feet when the good-looking Ricardo Tisci made his exit.
