Saint Laurent Ysl09 By Anthony Vaccarello

Never mind Starbucks, Saint Laurent have served up a potent dose of Monday motivation for us this morning in the form of Charlotte Gainsbourg, clad head to toe in a weaponized looking outfit from the brands Autumn/ Winter ’17 collection. Directed by Nathalie Canguilhem, and shot in Los Angeles a few weeks after Creative Director Anthony Vaccarello’s last runway extravanagza, this short and sweet featurette feels like the like the trailer for some science fiction fantasy centred around an exceptionally well dressed heroine. Aeon Flux meets Paris Fashion Week.

Selfridges Presents Fashion East

Never ones to perform idleness, it’s not a week since Selfridges introduced its 2017 follow up to the eco-aware Bright Young Things of 2016 – a new initiative exploring sustainable innovation called Material World – and the big yellow shop has today welcomed a second exciting project with the arrival of Fashion East to its shop floor.

The first retail venture proper from Lulu Kennedy’s emerging talent programme, this week through to late March sees Selfridges’ third floor Designer Studio play host to a hot pink pop-up from the east London team.

“It’s a massive buzz and privilege to be calling Selfridges home for a few months!” notes Kennedy of the opportunity, “We look forward to showing off our gorgeous alumni in such a brilliant fresh space.”

“You only have to walk around the fashion floors of Selfridges to see the amazing success and influence of Fashion East,” she continues. “In store for SS17 we have more than 20 Fashion East alumni and designers across menswear and womenswear – from new talent like Richard Malone through to Roksanda or Simone Rocha, who are some of our best performing RTW designers right now, or Craig Green who brings so much energy to men’s designerwear.”

Alongside apparel pieces from the likes of Mimi Wade and Matty Bovan – both whom debuted SS17 under the Fashion East brolly back in September – limited edition posters by Ashley Williams and Claire Barrow make up the stock, likewise a new ‘Boys in Pain’ zine from MAN label Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY, and phone cases boasting artwork from fashion week invites past and present.

Elsewhere a reissue from Kim Jones, who now heads up Louis Vuitton’s menswear, features amongst the line-up of special editions (Lulu and Natasha Booth both debuted theirs at Friday’s MAN show), and Louise Gray – class of AW08-SS09 – has helped shape the space’s DIY heavy aesthetic.

“Having a Fashion East Store in Selfridges where a real cross-section of the Fashion East family are represented feels like a natural thing to do,” says Buying Director, Sebastian Manes. “And more than that, we loved the idea of giving Lulu a space to make her own – I think the environment and line-up of specially commissioned products will give an insight into her creative process and into a network of brilliant friends who are shaping what British fashion means today.”

Yardsale Aw16

It doesn’t require much stretch of the imagination to picture the two young guys in Yardsale’s new look book flexing the same poses in similar locations, away from the glare of AW16.

Think an upmarket fashion party or a visit to Grandma (that floral wall, anyone?) and you have a naturally curated situation that once shared with the ‘gram reads as a high like count. Which is probably what the London label had in mind, when casting Curtis Pearl and Sam Lloyd Roberts for its latest visual shoutout…

Lensed by Dominic Marley, the images announce Yardsale’s new line-up with ample style; a strong support for a collection that translates luxury in a contemporary and street appropriate dialect.

“I’ve made clothes that we want to wear, skate and live in,” explains founder Dan Kreitem. “By mates, for mates. Each piece is heavily inspired by British and American pop culture, taking references from the 80’s and 90’s, it’s a bit of a sartorial love affair between classic British style and Los Angeles leisure wear.”

Dropping into selected retailers today (the brand’s site already boasts a steady selection), the search for that dream velour track jacket/must have baby blue zip top/old school mustard sweatshirt might just be over.
