Everlane’s 100% Human Collection: A Champion of Human Rights

In January 2017, Everlane launched its 100% Human Collection in response to the visibly divisive mood of the nation at the time. For CEO Michael Preysman and the Everlane team, it wasn’t about being a Democrat or a Republican, it wasn’t about left or right; it was about celebrating the universal humanity we share across political spectrums, racial makeups, gender identities, sexual orientations—and, of course, geographic locations. It was about reminding all of us that human rights are everyone’s business.

“The idea of 100% Human was totally organic,” says Michael. “It wasn’t premeditated. We thought right at the time of the election, being a country so split between two different sides, that there was more need for unity.”

What to Wear On The Weekend According to GQ: Fall Edition

Fall is a time for active leisure, and in many a neck of the woods it’s the best season to get outdoors during your off-hours. (Goodbye, 100-degree days and biting bugs.) But don’t just throw on a layer and call it good: Look sharp as you head out into that crisp autumn air. Whether you’re using weekends to hit the trail or opting to stick to the familiar urban/suburban paths, below are some key pieces you’ll want to have – chosen and written about by GQ stylist Brett Fahlgren.

Pesko (and His Cat) at Home: Talking GREATS and Wearing Nordstrom

Do you know Josh Peskowitz? He predates “influencer” as a term but that’s been his function for at least the last half of his 22 years in fashion magazines and the upper echelons of retail. At 38, he’s a deep industry insider and public fixture in the landscape along with guys like Nick Wooster, one of the most photographed people every fashion week.

It’s no wonder Peskowitz and Wooster are both brand ambassadors for GREATS shoes. The smart new sneaker company out of Brooklyn seems to be doing everything right.

Peskowitz was born in Brooklyn, just like GREATS, but now lives in California. On the occasion of Nordstrom launching GREATS online, we linked up for this story in Los Angeles in which he did some modeling, self-styled in clothes personally selected at Nordstrom The Grove in L.A., with GREATS shoes.

Between photos at his house, we chatted with Peskowitz about his time at FADER, Cargo, Esquire, the old (his video series “In the Closet” holds up), and generally his life in style going back to the ’90s. We also met his cat, Turkey, who was really sweet.

Check out his outfits and our conversation below.

Inside Balenciaga FW17 with Nordstrom Men’s Designer Buyer Dan Drewes

Legendary Spanish luxury house Balenciaga is experiencing new life under the creative direction of Demna Gvasalia, who took the reins in 2015. He brought his singular aesthetic, a kind of warped normcore luxury, and it’s a hit. Our current offering is already a favorite of celebrities like A$AP Rocky.

Previously known for his controversial, logo-riffing brand Vetements, Gvasalia operates in the designer world but seems skeptical of it, even opposed to it. He’s interesting to watch as a consumer and a cultural spectator.

For more insight, we turn to our men’s designer buyer Dan Drewes to explain what Gvasalia is up to in fashion, and take us through our current Balenciaga selection.

Please note: we sell men’s Balenciaga shoes online, but men’s Balenciaga clothing is sold in-store only. Shop Balenciaga in person in our Seattle, Vancouver and Aventura locations, and in Toronto at Yorkdale Shopping Centre. You’ll also be able to find Balenciaga at Nordstrom in Manhattan once our first men’s-only store opens there in spring 2018.

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.

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.
