A Fashion Designer Who ‘Chose Crazy’

It was during Paris’s first pandemic lockdown that the fashion designer Marco Ribeiro felt he’d reached a creative inflection point. “I was like, ‘I can go one of two ways,’” he recalls. “ ‘Either very commercial’ — but nobody was buying anything at the time, and nobody knew how long that would last — ‘or very crazy.’ I chose crazy.”

In 2019, the now-35-year-old Brazilian, who’d moved to Paris after 11 years in Buenos Aires, where he sold hand-painted bags and clothing, mostly to friends, had launched his first women’s wear line, a collection of tailored, minimalist pieces. But he never really felt like the work reflected him — where he came from, or what he wanted to convey. His post-pandemic collections, which he showed for the first time last year, are just as rigorously structured, but they’re also exuberant, with outsize ornamentation and dramatic silhouettes: skirts with exaggerated pleats,

What You Should Consider Before Launching A Fashion Brand

Creative Director and Editor-in-Chief of FOXYLAB NEW YORK.

Many designers don’t create newness anymore. We are living in the era of styling, and nowadays, fashion is all about mixing and matching. Therefore, it seems natural that many big fashion designers are digging into the archives of their houses—those lucky enough to head a brand with a long history.

To illustrate, during a recent men’s show of Givenchy, the artistic director, Matthew M. Williams, used the word “archives” repeatedly to describe the looks backstage. Furthermore, brands like Dior, Valentino and Steve Madden have used their extensive archives of fashion pieces to showcase and take inspiration from.

Challenges For Those New To The Fashion Industry

But what do you do if you are a new player in this big and expensive game called fashion—no big funding backup, no archives, no past, no cribs—and are starting from scratch? How

Footpatrol x Paperboy Ready a Three Piece Apparel Collection

Formed from a love of sandwiches and style, Parisian streetwear imprint Paperboy has established quite the name for itself since its 2014 inception. After collaborating with the likes of New Balance, CLARKS, BEAMS and more, Paperboy has now joined forces for a second time with Footpatrol for a concise collection of goods.

Being like-minded in taste, it only makes sense for these two European heavyweights to come together once more. The collaboration itself simply consists of three key styles – one hoodie and two T-Shirts. Adopting a monochromatic colourway, these pieces sport a relaxed fit, making them simple to pair with almost anything.

Atop each piece, the duo has made use of both their iconic brandings, with the Footpatrol Gasmask and Paperboy’s mascot character working in unison throughout. In celebration of the launch, Paperboy has created a bespoke lunch menu offering that will be available in its cafe for

Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City reveals theme for 2020 Met gala

Fashion changes with time and the times are often denoted by their fashion: the ’90s for its Juicy Couture, the ’80s for its over-sized blazers and the ’70s for its hippie garb. And now fashion is remembering the times.
