At Moschino the surrealism that is the DNA of the brand, is undeniably transformed into a new facet of the Italian label, with a spirit of rebellion for a Chanel-lisation of the brand the posh in the anarchic vision of the punk cool for bourgeoises walk in Milan.
Founded by Yushan Li and Jun Zhou, Shanghai-based Pronounce’s fall 2023 collection was inspired by Chinese oracle bone scripts and knots, two of humanity’s oldest ways of storing information.
The suits and coats of the Mao regime resembled bones dug up from the ground, while tops, trousers, and outerwear featured giant ancient Chinese characters.
Giant knots danced around the sweaters in red, white, and brown, and oversize decorative patterns were made by knotting.
They said the collection represents their reflection of the information overload of the digital age, and how looking back might be the best course of action.
Their instincts were correct. This collection offered a fresh take on Chinese culture that wasn’t cliché. For those seeking Chinese identity, the collection has it all, and for those looking for great clothes, the brand has a lot to offer.” Continue reading →

After a long illness, Hilary Alexander, the London-based fashion writer who described leopard prints in her 2018 book, died at 77.
As president of the Graduate Fashion Foundation, which hosts Graduate Fashion Week, an annual showcase for fashion students, Alexander mentored many British fashion journalists during her long career at The Daily Telegraph.
Woe to anyone who interfered with Alexander’s pursuing a story or rushing to the next show when she was a bon viveur partial to Champagne and cigarettes. The gravelly sound of her voice could be heard through even the most dense fashion crowd, and she traveled the world reporting on shows, special events, and, of course, parties.
As a fashion news reporter, features writer, stylist, and features writer for the newspaper, her joie de vivre never got in the way of her ambition. RIP.

In the Southern District of New York, Mason Rothschild wrapped up his testimony Thursday at the trademark infringement trial brought forth by Hermès.
California-based artist has been accused of trademark infringement, dilution, and cybersquatting. 100 “MetaBirkin” NFTs were created by Rothschild, two-dimensional images of faux-fur-covered handbags inspired by the luxury house’s prized Birkin bag.
Rothschild, according to Hermès executives and its legal team, confused consumers, diluted the brand and affected the company’s own NFT and metaverse plans. The project was conceived in late 2021 by Rothschild, who goes by the name Sonny Estival. It was motivated by the fur-free movement that was becoming popular in the fashion industry at the time, as well as his desire to create an illusion of value for digital handbags similar to Birkins. He and his team have argued repeatedly that his artistic expression is protected by the First Amendment and the two-dimensional blockchain-hosted images cannot be used as handbags in the metaverse.
