How to Dress Like an Eboy, Outfits and Style

The latest trend in men’s fashion comes from the forthcoming TikTok social network. The eboy style may be guided towards a younger audience, but some features can be integrated into a more modern style. Here is how to dress like an eboy and stay current in 2020. If you want to dress like an eboy think emo. The look is characterized by its emo-influenced appearance. The typical outfit has skater-boy, goth, as well as, a ton of influences coming from k-pop style, 90s grunge, 2000s normcore to Billie Eilish—and her recent “Bad Guy” song. Finishing off things with strikingly dyed hair and graphic makeup that often featured a little heart or teardrops under the eyes. There are many examples of eboy types in Hollywood and popular culture. From Johnny Depp’s impersonation of Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker in John Waters 1990 cult movie Cry Baby —in a 50’s rockabilly way— to ‘softboy-of-the decade’ Timothée Chalamet. Essentially, a good eboy outfit includes Thrasher T-shirts—and alike—worn over long sleeves, Vans, wallet chains, and black nail polish. Personally, I hate …

Stalking Fashion Designer Matthew Adams Dolan – Photo Editorial

— All images part of an exclusive collaboration between designer Matthew Adams Dolan, VAGA and NY-based photographer Hadar Pitchon, showcasing the designer’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection,  words by Megan Que. As an emerging fashion designer straight out of graduate school, it is very rare to be able to name Rihanna and Lady Gaga as clients. An exception to this is Matthew Adams Dolan, a recent graduate from Parsons’ esteemed MFA Fashion Design and Society program. Born in Danvers, Massachusetts, then later immigrating to Sydney, Australia, Dolan attended high school in Japan, went to college at Université de Lausanne in Switzerland, then graduated in Fashion and International Studies at the University of Technology, Sydney. His impressive design portfolio later scored him a scholarship at Parsons, supported by fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg. In September 2014, Dolan presented his graduate collection at New York Fashion Week, which comprised of wardrobe staples such as denim jackets, jeans, and t-shirts with genderless, exaggerated silhouettes. His childhood memories of his mother constantly sewing and quilting sparked his interest in the traditions of American craft and the …

Sies Marjan Fashion Show, A Je Ne Sais Quoi Attitude

Whether it’s a fact or a general stereotype, it’s a common belief that New Yorkers love to wear black clothing. So it could be seen as a pretty risky move when a new label presents its fall collection at NYFW, without sending any black clothes down the runway. Unless you’re Sander Lak, that is. Boasting an impressive resumé (Central Saint Martins graduate under the late Louise Wilson, work experiences at Marc Jacobs, Phillip Lim, Balmain, and most notably the head of design at Dries Van Noten for five years), Lak’s new label, Sies Marjan, made a remarkable impression during its much-anticipated debut in February. Just to gauge how high expectations were for this brand new label, the attendees had some of fashion’s most influential people, including Anna Wintour, Natalie Massenet, Cathy Horyn, and buyers from Barneys. Set in an unfinished penthouse in Tribeca, the collection started off with looks more appropriate for spring than fall: a soft floral print translated into bias-cut dresses and loose separates, a belted long coat in a colorful abstract print, …

Float Like A Butterfly, Sting Like A Bee —Men’s Fashion Editorial

The famous quote “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. The hands can’t hit what the eyes can’t see” was first said by a 22-year old Muhammad Ali at a historic boxing event in Kinshasa, Zaire. Since he spoke it, this sentence has been used to described his style on the ring. The boxer, who left us last Friday, will long be regarded as the greatest of all times.

In the Spotlight, Designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia of MONSE

When Amal Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parker wear your designs months before your NYFW debut and Net-a-Porter immediately picks up your first collection, critical success is imminent. Such is the case for Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia’s new label Monse, which despite being only two-seasons old, has been worn by celebrities such as Sienna Miller, Kerry Washington, and Allison Williams, just to name a few. Monse, named after Garcia’s mother, is the brainchild of recently appointed creative consultants for Carolina Herrera and former Oscar de La Renta alums (Kim was the studio director and head daywear designer while Garcia oversaw the eveningwear designs.) Their first collection, S/S 16, came with high expectations and centered on creative interpretations and the deconstruction of a wardrobe staple: the button down-shirt. Kim and Garcia reworked this basic essential into dresses with oversized shirtsleeves wrapped and knotted across the shoulders, asymmetric blouses in jewel tones, and a beige taffeta skirt with pajama snap closures. Other looks included a black satin sleeveless gown with the label’s ubiquitous shirtsleeve-wrapped shoulders, worn a …

Fade Into Three Colors, a photo editorial by Weisi Dai

In the film Three Colors: Blue (1993), French actress Juliette Binoche and director Krzysztof Piesiewicz tell the story of a woman who tries to disassociate herself completely from society after a dramatic accident, but she ends up realizing it is impossible to fully remove oneself from human connections. The movie is the first of three films composing The Three Color Trilogy, loosely themed on the three political ideals that triggered the French Republic. White is about equality, in the film we watch a man, Karol Karol (Zbigniew Zamachowski), who was left in humiliating circumstances. With no money or friends, left while living in poverty in Warsaw, Karol begins to restore equality to his life through revenge. Red is about fraternity and tells a story of human interconnections. The three movies are individually considered as an anti-tragedy, an anti-comedy, and an anti-romance. —Photo Editorial by Weisi Dai, styling Misha Lee, makeup Miya Chuang, hair Miley Shen, models Sofi Berelidze and Pirina D

Fun Molly Party - Tulle Dress and Tshirt

A Couple of Fashion Designers [to Follow]: Molly Goddard and Daniel Silverstain

Taking inspiration from the past and incorporating those elements to form contemporary pieces is a common thing among designers. Two womenswear designers who have been very successful at this are newcomers Molly Goddard and Daniel Silverstain. While their design aesthetic couldn’t be more different, both create collections that evoke positivity and optimism; they are feel-good garments that are much-needed additions to update and refresh the wardrobe. Goddard, who is based in London, never expected that her debut collection would accidentally become a successful business. After leaving her MA course at Central Saint Martins, she decided to start her own line and put together a 22-piece collection in six weeks. Under a tight budget, she decided to forego the conventional runway presentation and threw the aptly named ‘Fun Molly Party’ instead, and invited her friends and family to model her designs, which comprised of sheer tulle dresses with voluminous skirts. Worn over their everyday clothes of vintage t-shirts and jeans, the tulle dresses became an unexpected hit, with orders soon placed by Dover Street Market. Her …

SAV NOIR AW16

Rocking and Rolling, Model Justin Gossman for Sav Noir

When it was first unleashed on an unsuspecting suburban populace in the 1950’s, rock ‘n’ roll was perceived as a threat. A menace to society, comparable to the Red Scare that threatened the “American way of life” with its loose hips and morals. Considering the furor, tumult, and outcry, it’s kind of disappoint r ‘n’ r  has become the most bland of lifestyle accessories – a facsimile of rebellion, but still in bed by 11. Los Angeles-based fashion label Sav Noir is doing its bit to turn that around. Influenced by the untamed life well after the sun has set. They’re making dark, chic clothes for “the matured, rebellious souls of our era. The ones whom fear nothing, or no one,” as they put it. Sav Noir AW’16 “The Moto” film tells the painful story of chasing a rock’n’roll dream following model Justin Gossman as a young rock ‘n’ roller, through his dreams of fame, fortune, and excess, through to the painful, vacuous existence of a struggling artist. Watch Gossmann go from sleek, stylish nightlife to the …

Amba Baker and Pia Priewe in some of the looks of the season

Poetry is the fact of finding a childhood mark (…) a baby watching alternately the moon through the window and then his dad’s face lighted up by the white light of his computer. All sort of the same magic, triggering a million baby dreams… Photographer Manuel Obadia-Wills at MOW Studio captures models Amba Baker and Pia Priewe at Supreme Management Paris on some of the key looks of the season, outfitted by Theophile Hermand, hair and make-up Camille Siguret.

About Jaden Smith As The New Face Of Louis Vuitton And Gender-Bending Fashion

In a piece of topsy-turvy fashion news, the new face of Louis Vuitton’s womenswear line is not a woman. This turn of events speaks to the legendary designer’s forward-looking fashion sense as much as the androgynous charm of Vuitton’s new model, Jaden Smith. The photographs from iconic fashion photographer Bruce Weber debuted last week on the Instagram account of Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquière. The photo shows Smith decked out in an embroided skirt, fringe top, and moto jacket that debuted during Paris Fashion Week. Although gender-bending is nothing new on fashion or pop culture, Ghesquière’s collection is the most recent example of gender-bending fashion design to hit mainstream media attention. Gucci’s F/W 2015 men’s collection featured waifish men appearing beside boyish women, both wearing silhouettes, fabrics, and items of clothing traditionally associated with women’s fashion. Gucci’s new designer Alessandro Michele collection saw men and women alike wearing pussycat bow blouses, midriff jackets, and low-riding, wide-legged trousers. Male and female models alike sported matching make-up, with loose, flowing, unbound hair. This approach is working …

Vibrant ‘2D’ Cartoon-Style Bags for “Big City Girls”

Seeing a Jump From Paper bag at a distance can be confusing. The bags at first seem unreal, as if digitally added next to the person wearing them.  In a world where anything is wearable, Taiwan-based designers Chay Su and Rika Lin have come up with an innovative line of functional accessories that look like they’ve popped out of a cartoon. The line is comprised of a wide range of products; satchels, backpacks, wallets and purses. They all come in color block bright tones mixed with beige and black colors imitating leather. The design is what makes the bags’ unique. Each bag looks like it’s been traced and colored with a Sharpie. Behind the fun design of the bags, there is a hidden pouch that can used for small treasures, making the Jump From Paper bags as practical as they are exciting! From London to New York, they have come this winter 2015 season to help out each “Big City Girl” march toward their dreams. The irregular lines confirm the bags’ intention to appear as if they are coming out of children’s cartoons or coloring …
