Louis Vuitton

Designers have been working with layers of different materials and textures, slipping fabulously detailed top pieces over simpler foundations.

Here, a razzle-dazzle, jet-embroidered halter draped over a sheer black under layer creates a look that’s extremely rich – by Louis Vuitton.

Alexander Wang | News

Alexander Wang’s latest collection is available to pre-order, giving us an early insight into what it costs to create a coat out of heat-sensitive (or, as Wang calls it, “thermo-reactive”) fabric.

The coats – which start off a dull green-brown, but become a vibrant yellow, lime, blue or purple when exposed to heat – will retail at $7,995, with a $3,998 deposit required to pre-order. The heat-sensitive skirt and top suit – worn by Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, Anne V, among others at the show – begin at $2,550, and all look similar until their underlying colour is revealed.

Desire for Logos | News

Recognisable status pieces are back, and with them a desire for logos. We no longer wish for rebellious individualism, instead preferring to show off our inclusion in fashion communities.

Across the spring/summer ’14 catwalks, the logo was abundant. Marc Jacobs’s startlingly beautiful swan song at Louis Vuitton had Edie Campbell naked but for hand-painted Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse graffiti covering her lithe body. Similarly for Carol Lim and Humberto Leon at Kenzo, Missoni, Alexander Wang, and DKNY.

Logos offer free marketing and add value to products. You may not be able to afford the $4,000 Saint Laurent biker jacket, but you can have Hedi Slimane’s $200 Saint Laurent T-shirt which has been redesigned by the artist Zane Reynolds for spring.

Opium | M7

His advertising campaigns for the Yves Saint Laurent fragrances Opium (with a red-haired Sophie Dahl completely naked wearing only a necklace and stiletto heels in a sexually suggestive pose) and YSL M7 (with martial arts champion Samuel de Cubber in complete full-frontal nudity) have been famous and provocative by pushing fragrance ads to a new level of creativity in artistic expression and commercial impact.
