CHROMAT Projects NYFW into Your Home with VR & 3D Scanning

CHROMAT Projects NYFW into Your Home with VR & 3D Scanning

By Michael Molitch-Hou

Last year, we covered exciting work by tech-fashion studio CHROMAT, which featured some really cutting edge and great looking designs. The looks from that night not only featured 3D printing, but responsive apparel that relied on Intel technology. And all of the looks were captured as 3D scans by Intel RealSense and published to Sketchfab.  For CHROMAT’s Fall/Winter ’16 show, the runway show had its own 21st century appeal, this time because the looks were not just captured using the all new version of RealSense from Intel, but also because the show was live-streamed in VR.…

Misty Copeland has been hailed as a thoroughly modern ballerina, but as her re-creations of Edgar Degas’ iconic dancers show, she knows how to nail the classic look, too

Dressed in Oscar de la Renta, Alexander McQueen and other pretty pastel couture, Copeland used high fashion to flawlessly re-create artist Edgar Degas’ portraits and sculptures of ballerinas for the March issue of Harpers Bazaar

The photoshoot celebrates an upcoming exhibition at the New York Museum of Modern Art called “Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty,” which will feature some of the ballet artwork Degas created between the 1860s and his death in 1917 Read more…

NEW YORK — Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 show on Thursday had all the twists and turns of a perfect stage show. There was the superb music blasting from his upcoming seventh album, The Life of Pablo, the production was outer worldly, and the clothes, including West’s infamous Yeezy Boosts, are sure to become bestsellers.

But what was the most intriguing aspect from the New York City show was West’s cast of models. Most on two of the stages were of color, and the entire bottom floor (made up of street-casted, non-professional models) were black.

Kanye West’s fashion shows traditionally serve as platforms to promote equality on the catwalk. Both Yeezy Seasons 1 and 2 sent models from across of the spectrum of skin tones down the runway. 

Yeezy Season 3, which also served as the debut of West’s sixth album, The Life of Pablo, at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, was a slightly different story. 

His use of mostly black models this year, which seemed to act as commentary on equal rights for African Americans, was accompanied by themes of class separation and hierarchy, whether intentional or not. Read more…

NEW YORK — Kanye West showed us the fashion future tonight.

It was a sight to be seen — one that will certainly go down in history as not only one of the biggest fashion spectacles of all time, but also a concert. Go figure. 

It was rapper and fashion designer Kanye West’s Madison Square Garden show on Thursday, which brought together the fashion set, fans and music aficionados alike to celebrate not only his latest collection, Yeezy Season 3, but his seventh studio album, The Life of Pablo.

West, a self-proclaimed musical genius, merged fashion and music — the biggest of his passions — seamlessly in a show that reminded us what fashion shows are all about. And perhaps what they should do more of. That’s entertainment.  Read more…

OK, we get it. Makers of fitness trackers now recognize that, for the most part, the majority of products in this category are clunky. No matter how hard the company tries to disguise wearable tech, you can almost always tell when a person is counting their daily steps. The plastic wristbands are never subtle.

While previous iterations of these handy little trackers improved the category with slimmer and smarter devices, we’re finally moving into stage two of activity monitoring: fashionable options you’d actually want to wear.

'Wedgie' jeans promise to make your butt look amazing

Mom jeans just got a seriously sexy update.

Levi’s released the “Wedgie Fit Jean” — a pair of pants that claims to flatter your booty like no other.

For spring 2016, the denim company created a silhouette that lifts and holds the cheeks slightly apart giving the wearer — you guessed it — a wedgie. This cut promises to boosts booties for a rounder look, so there’s no more worrying about the flat tush that often accompanies mom jeans

Plus, Kylie Jenner has already made the Wedgie jean Instagram famous.

“The Wedgie was inspired by the way girls were wearing vintage Levi’s,” Jonathan Cheung, senior vice president of Levi’s Global Design, told Mashable. “Just as the 501 CT was inspired by girls wearing the 501 a little bit slouchy, the Wedgie is inspired by girls [who] were downsizing a vintage 505 and wearing it very close and almost vacuum-packed to the rear-ends — hence the affectionate and cheeky name.” Read more…

Looks like hair-dye trends can’t stop, won’t stop. Kansas stylist Ursula Goff has begun reinterpreting famous works of art as hairstyles, so your hair will now look like a true masterpiece.

Into Impressionism? Goff can give you those Claude Monet water lily locks you’ve always dreamt of. More into pop art? She can make you look like Andy Warhol’s classic portrait of Marilyn Monroe. If you’re more of a Lichtenstein fan, Goff can hook you up with bright blue hair straight off the artist’s satirical comic strips.

“What tends to inspire me is a lot of colors and nature,” Goff told Good Morning Kansas last fall. “I’m an artist too, with a strong painting background … so I understand color theory really well.” Read more…

4 modern ways to rock the traditional cheongsam

4 modern ways to rock the traditional cheongsam

I have a confession to make: I love to wear the cheongsam — a traditional Chinese one-piece dress with a mandarin collar.

Usually figure-hugging, the cheongsam (also known as a qipao) was made popular in 1920s Shanghai by socialites and upperclass women and is often associated with cinematic chinoiserie glamour

Cheongsams are amazing — feminine, yet seductive at the same time. But it’s not easy to pull one off because you might look like you work at a kitschy dim sum restaurant or worse, your grandmother (no offence, grandma!). Read more…

Rihanna is every bit the rude girl she’s always warned you she is, and now she’s taken it to an extreme level by teasing her Navy with a strategic selfie she was fully aware would cause a frenzy

RiRi claims to be listening her long awaited new album, Anti, on $8,895.00 Dolce & Gabbana headphones with a crown attached. Before you get too excited, remember that this doesn’t mean ANTI is finished and it’s not a release date. But it is definitely a call to action: buy a crown. Immediately

Crowns have played a huge role in the marketing of Anti we’ve seen so far, and there’s one on the album cover, which was released well before before #R8 was even finished Read more…
