When it comes to lace, leather, lingerie, and certainly latex stylings, we are forever on the hunt for interesting news. Sometimes the latest and greatest of our favorite haute couture comes in the form of what a Cardi B might be showing off in her latest video (“WAP” instantly comes to mind), or we expound on something we just received from The World Of WearableArt. Yes, we even get moments in these blogs to brag about some magazine shoot we contributed to or litter a blog with models wearing our wares. For this blog, as we have done quite a few times before, we rounded up a bunch of unrelated moments from the recent past that we felt would pique the interest of us lovers of particular fashion.
First, two popular young ladies stepped out in some very cool couture this week….
Hailey Bieber was spotted walking with Justin in NYC. She was wearing a leather trench and scrumptious purple liquid latex leggings. As we have all seen the Kardashian/Jenner clan sport interesting wardrobe pieces most of the time and stepping out on the opposite coast for brunch, Kylie Jenner was spotted in L.A. wearing an orange leather mini. The Bottega Veneta dress she wore, is part of the company’s Resort ’20 collection, and usually falls slightly longer down the wearer’s legs than Kylie made it ride up hers.
COVID-19 may slow down the attendance to this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute’s exhibit About Time: Fashion and Duration. But the show, which will encompass “dueling galleries,” full of nearly two hundred pieces, also offers aural treats. Last year, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” and the sound of typewriters clacking could be heard in the fashion exhibition; this year three pieces of Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando will be read by actresses Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, and Julianne Moore.
Thailand-born, London-based fashion consultant Katie Ruensumran, a.k.a. @katiesmonter has launched her,The Meaning Well label. This new design venture offers a combination of comfort tailoring with Ruensumran’s signature oversized, tent-like wardrobe pieces.
Even in this time where so much is at a standstill, creative people still step out, step forward, and step beyond.
