Photos by Crystal Nicodemus

Models, editors, Insta-stars and bloggers bundled up while showing off under the grey skies of London Fashion Week. Braving the weather with sartorial flair, their affinity for neutrals was checked by the odd Gen-Z yellow sweater, puffer or colorful skirt that stood out like a beacon in the Burberry-clad streets. Ahead, a collection of our favorite looks from our week across the pond, plus links to shop similar styles now.

Anya Hindmarch Build a Bag Fashion Week Interviews Style Video

Build Your Own Bag with Anya Hindmarch’s Charming Purse Personalizations

Fashion is more fun with British designer Anya Hindmarch around. Her runway shows are legendary for their theatrical, inexplicable settings: human conveyor belts, enormous domino mazes, true model homes, barren geometric spaces. She is outspoken, down-to-earth, and a Commander of the Order of the British Empire on account of her many contributions to fashion. She has a reputation for crafting curiously covetable accessories. (Her “I’m Not a Plastic Bag” tote took on a life of its own in the aughts.) She frequently stages crazy window displays in her stores, which can become guerrilla art installations in public spaces—like her Chubby Hearts over London series this London Fashion Week. And her quirky bag charms can be found on many street-style stars’ totes.

Now you can step into her unique process by creating your own bag through her Build a Bag collection. The online experience lets you select the leather color, bag strap and accessories to construct a custom creation and be an innovative bag designer in your own right—maybe even earning a medal, or at least treating yourself to a bag charm.

We spoke with the iconoclastic Hindmarch about her career, the Build a Bag program (including her own zany, luxurious purse) and why humor is so important to fashion.

New York Fashion Week proves that come February, everyone is eager to inject some spring into their wardrobes—even if the weather is not exactly cooperative.

Pep Gay’s Glamorous, Gilded Ladies at Tadashi Shoji | Baskstage Beauty

In his latest collection, Tadashi Shoji proves that power is synonymous with glamour and sexiness. His Fall 2018 runway embodied a fiercely feminine energy—each look that strutted down the catwalk, dramatic and deeply unapologetic.

To complement the strength of Tadashi’s collection, makeup artist Pep Gay was tasked with creating a beauty look that would continue the luxurious narrative of tulle gowns and sequined suits. Gay answered the call with a mesmerizing wash of gold on the eyes using MAC Cosmetics, harkening the elegance of the red carpet, where we can easily imagine Tadashi’s designs gracing the silhouettes of Hollywood A-listers. Just-bitten berry lips finished the look, creating truly beautiful makeup that does not compete with the fashions, but makes them shine. Ahead, we break down the look, so you can recreate it step by step.

Spring has officially sprung in New York City according to the fashion pack’s brightly colored outfits and hiked hemlines. Primary colors replace the usual head-to-toe neutrals and red continues to dominate as the current It color. But there is another standout hue on the horizon: canary yellow, as seen in brilliant knitwear, fluttering floral skirts, trousers and more. When the weather is so-so, street stylers bring their own sunshine.

Let these springy styles inspire you for the season ahead.

Rag & Bone’s Marcus Wainwright Shifts Our Perspective in the Short Film, “Why Can’t We Get Along”

The brand rag & bone is a story of contrasts: English tailoring meets American workwear, uptown versus downtown, masculine and feminine—all told to customers around the globe. Sartorial storytelling is the brand’s niche, and is often led by CEO and founder Marcus Wainwright, who continually finds new mediums for his evolving fashion message.

We spoke to Wainwright ahead of his new short film (co-directed by Benjamin Millepied, Aaron Duffy, and Bob Partington and filmed by Darius Khondji), which showcases rag & bone’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. The short, “Why Can’t We Get Along,” features dance as a metaphor for seeing from another’s point of view, and stars Kate Mara and Ansel Elgort, in addition to the label’s spring styles and a soundtrack by Thom Yorke.
