Helmut Lang’s Shayne Oliver-Designed Collection at New York Fashion Week

In a one-season-only engagement, Shayne Oliver designed the spring/summer 2018 collection for Helmut Lang, the pioneering designer brand. The collection premiered at New York Fashion Week in a runway show billed as Helmut Lang Seen by Shayne Oliver.

The clothes combined Helmut Lang’s strapped-in aesthetic with Oliver’s downtown NYC style, made famous by his recently defunct brand Hood By Air. The show occurred in an emporium filled with heavy-duty scaffolding, lights, speakers and other purely functional décor—and a who’s who of popular music in attendance.

Read more about the show and see a full slideshow below.

Nico Peyrache is the creative director of FRAME, a très cool denim brand that has spun out to design some stunningly chic shirts, blouses, dresses and sweaters. Basically, if you need to look put together in a moment’s notice, FRAME’s unfussy pieces will get you there.

Behind the Brand: Marcus Wainwright of rag & bone on the Future of Fashion

Marcus Wainwright, CEO and founder of rag & bone, has been the axle around which the contemporary fashion brand has rotated since its launch in 2002. With the departure of his cofounder, David Neville, last year, Wainwright has engaged in all aspects of the successful New York label. His steadfast, tempered Britishness centers the brand, which is anchored in his upper-class English background but deeply informed by American manufacturing and dress codes. As rag & bone has spun away from industry trends—like see-now, buy-now schedules and fashion shows—it has pursued more ethical, more decisive, more intentional choices.

That may clue you in to where Wainwright sees the future of fashion going. Here is what he told us during a brief chat on the state of the industry.

The Last Hurrah: Late-Summer Style for Men and Women

There’s no better way to soak up the sun and the remaining moments of summer than with a late-season picnic. The berries are still bountiful; layer them on your desserts and cheeses. The evenings are cool enough that you can laze in the breeze on a blanket. And the sun is just right to capture golden moments with great lighting.

Here are some snaps from our last hurrah—one more outing with our pals, complete with yummy snacks and goofy moments. We invite you to come along.
