Jillian Mercado, a 26 year-old New York fashion editor living with muscular dystrophy has been cast as one of the young and hip, culturally diverse models that are part of Diesel’s newest campaign ‘We Are Connected.’ Although Mercado says that it was done as a joke, a few months ago she responded to a Diesel casting call looking for young culturally representative models. Not too long after, she was contacted by Diesel requesting more pics. And it’s ... Read More
Women, pants, and power have been mixed up together since suffragist Amelia Bloomer paraded around in “Turkishtrousers” in the 1850s. Bloomer’s goal was to reform women’s clothing, with its restrictive corsets and heavy skirts, but her outfit brought mostly ridicule from a public that largely believed trousers, along with the vote, were men’s prerogatives. The bicycle craze of the 1890s helped open women’s minds to the idea of ... Read More
  In 1969, the artist Allen Jones presented the public with what he referred to as a “[representation of] the experience of woman:” a chair, composed of leather, glass, and resin meant to depict a prostrate woman bound to its seat. The sadomasochistic chair was for Jones a realization of a more inclusive art form, appealing to universal erotic urges over the class barriers imposed by the fine arts. The tragic thing is that the artist grossly fails ... Read More
“There is no reason to retouch beauty. We think THE REAL YOU IS SEXY.”  So reads the closing line of aerie’s recent letter to young woman, accompanying a campaign advertising its Spring 2014 collection. The lingerie company, affiliated with American Eagle, is giving their target demographic of girls (aged 15-21) an ad campaign free of retouching. Can I get a hallelujah?!  Titled #aerieReal, the campaign attempts to deal with the beauty ... Read More
  We die for fashion design student Hanh Nhu's adorably retro fashion sense. The fashion design student, based in Rueil-Malmaison, France, gave us the rundown on her personal style and picked some key pieces she's coveting. Tell me about what you’re wearing. My mum and I made my red velvet dress, so it didn’t cost me much. There’s a random white shirt underneath, but I can’t remember the brand. I got my hat and jacket from the H&M ... Read More

We can’t get enough of Best Coast’s newest EP Fade Away, and it’s doing a decent job of holding us over until the next full-length...for now. Bethany’s uncanny ability to soothe our sorrows with her own brand of mellowed out surf-rock combined with brutally honest lyrics will never get old. Fade Away features more polished vocals, more womp-tastic songs about love and loss, and more hi-fi production value. We just couldn’t wait for ... Read More
  Ah, pubic hair, how you never cease to amaze the masses. After last year’s release of controversial vulva graphic t-shirt by feminist artist Petra Collins, American Apparel has created some provocative mannequins whose sheer garments expose a large pubic bush and set of perky nipples.    Like Collins’s work, the company’s new window display on NYC’s East Houston Street has elicited feminist acclaim. Arguably, the mannequins ... Read More
Lena Dunham’s first Vogue cover story will be appearing in the magazine's February 2014 issue. The spread, shot by the ultra famous Annie Leibovitz, includes images of the doe-eyed Dunham dressed in some serious high fashion pieces, posing in various typical New York scenes while her Girls co-star Adam Driver and her dog Lamby attempt to share the spotlight. Personally, I think that even the way she is holding her hands while resting them on Driver’s ... Read More
  Though you probably don’t give ‘em much thought, one of the humblest parts of women’s clothing has a complicated history: pockets. These small nooks originally took the form of cloth satchels, which Western women wore under their dresses during the 18th century. Such pouches allowed ladies to stash items like needles and thread by day, or handkerchiefs and gloves by night. The pocket increased a woman’s mobility, and helped to ... Read More
