Riley and Asia Chow. "There was a lot of talk this season in fashion [about designers not promoting diversity]," the designer told Style.com. "I was one of the persons who ended up not being touched by this. I discovered Joan Smalls, I discovered Maria [Borges]. I've always been supporting them. For me, I grew up in a family and I grew up in a culture, an education, that we are all the same." See more of the Givenchy spring '14 campaign below. Seen via: Refinery29
We chat with Capsule/BPMW co-founder Deirdre Maloney about the two day extravaganza. Holiday shopping can quickly turn from good intent to a pain in the ass. You don't know what to buy, stores are insanely busy and you end up coming home with a bunch of candles that smell like "pine" and books no one will ever read. This year, the good people that bring you Capsule and BPMW, are here to help with their first ever consumer event--a holiday shopping fair called Capsule Market Square. Co-owner of BPMW/Capsule Deirdre Maloney, says we can expect to find "a little bit of everything, from men's and women's apparel, to accessories, objects and lifestyle products, and a bunch of exciting grab bag giveaways." With a selection of 100 curated labels, Capsule Market Square will be a smorgasbord of amazing gifts, but in case it gets overwhelming we asked Deirdre to help navigate the space a little. We also asked her how she feels about Christmas sweaters and what's the best holiday present she's ever received. Read our Q+A with Deirdre Maloney about the Capsule Market Square below. Visit Capsule Market Square Decemeber 14-15th 11am-8pm at 82 Mercer Street. Who are some new designers, people should keep an eye out for at the market? We have a few new designers such as Giu Giu (amazing knitwear), Native Youth (men's), and Clermont (objects and accessories by Fort Standard). And we are excited about our Editor's Closet, which includes designer pieces for sale from the personal wardrobes of editors and stylists from some major publications--think Vogue, GQ, Details, Refinery29. Proceeds benefit the Ali Forney Center, which is a NYC based non-profit that provides shelter and services to homeless LGBTQ youth. Why would you suggest people buy their gifts at the market as opposed to regular shopping destinations? It's pretty much a one stop shop for all the people in your life over the age of 18. We've made sure we have a good balance of men's, women's, jewelry, accessories, easy breezy gifty type stuff, limited edition collaborations, high-end collections vs affordable pieces. And the best deals of course!
Oh Bambi. Givenchy's newest model Bambi, is making her way onto t-shirts. Showing off some leg, Bambi has been printed on a black cotton-jersey tee. The tee has an over-sized cut that eases up around the sleeves and waist. The shirt is going to set you back $565 and is being sold in select Givenchy retailers. But for that price you could probably go to Disneyland and take your own pic with the baby deer. Seen via: Hypebeast
