If you weren’t up on the CFDA awards before, chances are it’s now on your radar thanks to Rihanna attending the affair nearly naked. The event – think a more casual Met Gala – is designed to honour individuals who have made outstanding contributions to fashion. The glamorous evening involved some major wins – on stage and the red carpet.

New York’s own Joseph Altuzarra took home the coveted CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year award. After only six years, his young label beat out both Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang for the top prize. Altuzarra’s success was prophesized in 2012 when he won the CFDA’s Emerging Designer of the Year award. Read more »

Well hello, high low! Target has just announced its next designer collaboration, with rising New York label Altuzarra. The latest in a long line of partnerships with American designers also marks one of its most ambitious, considering how luxe Altuzarra is shaping up to be. (Gilded cocktail dresses, anyone?) Sexy, strong and considerably pricey, Altuzarra is the label for modern day power dressers. And now for those in the making, too.

“As a designer, I believe firmly in the transformative power of fashion. It has the ability to not only change how you look, but also how you feel,” said designer Joseph Altuzarra via Target press release. “I’ve admired the elegance that Target brings to fast fashion. By working together on this capsule collection, we hope to instill a sense of power, confidence and beauty in women everywhere.”

The 30-piece collection will include womenswear, shoes and accessories, ranging from $18 to $80. Target’s Altuzarra range will launch just in time for New York Fashion Week on September 14, 2014 in Target stores across the US and Canada as well as exclusively online at Talk about luxury.

Snapped by Tommy Ton: “This is the outfit of the season”

“The moment I saw Veronika, it immediately clicked in my head: ‘this is the outfit of the season.’ From what I’ve been seeing across the board, comfort has really been on people’s minds, and this for me was the perfect balance of comfort and fashion. It captures the mood of how women in fashion are dressing now. And the way she put it together—the Altuzarra wrap skirt with a turtleneck, tights and then obviously the sneakers—pretty much sums up this whole idea of Normcore and comfort that everybody’s been talking about. It’s funny, because it’s almost a take on the commuter look: women wearing sneakers with a skirt suit or pantsuit, which would normally make me cringe, but there’s something about it that’s so right now. People who typically would never be seen wearing flats in public are now fully wearing sneakers to shows. Even Parisian editors who you’d assume would be wearing sky-high stiletto heels are wearing Nikes. But they’re not changing the way they dress, the footwear is the only thing that’s changed. I think people are just being realistic—you can’t go to shows from 9 in the morning until 8 at night wearing stilettos. You need to be comfortable, but also very forward at the same time.”

How spring’s ’90s revival is helping one editor deal with her premature age crisis

For most of my 20s, I’ve been your archetypal hypochondriac (let’s just say a good old MRI really calms my nerves), but lately, my Woody Allen-like fear of the end has morphed into something even more frightful: the end of my youth. I’ll be 30 next April—a milestone I’ve been dreading since I turned 27 (which, let’s be honest, was traumatic enough). Most say the best is yet to come, but from where I’m sitting, my impending existential grapple with miniskirts has pushed me down a road of teenage wardrobe nostalgia where crushed velvet, neon and over-the-top everything reign supreme.

Fashion’s ’90s streak couldn’t have come at a better time. For me, the ’90s represent a period in my life when my biggest priorities were decorating my room with posters of Leonardo DiCaprio, sneaking into 14A movies like Cruel Intentions and The Craft and lining up outside MuchMusic to see The Backstreet Boys. Fast-forward to today and the ’90s couldn’t be more pervasive. Crop tops and Birkenstocks are street-style staples, witches are the new vampires and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is, well, fresh again. And while for many it may feel early for a ’90s redux, the evidence says otherwise: Cher Horowitz’s, like, totally important Alaïa moment happened 19 years ago. Aaliyah has been dead for 13 years. And Marc Jacobs’s infamous grunge collection for Perry Ellis? That was 21 years ago.

Your first time at any international fashion week will teach you a valuable lesson: You need a fur. And not just any Margot Tenenbaum style granny hand-me-down. A fur so intricately patterned, multi-layered and artificially coloured, that it has to be designer. Given its place at the apex of the top Fall 2014 trends, you’d think recessionary times were long gone—it’s virtually everywhere, from a hyper colour mink at Altuzarra to a fluffy red dress at Prada. Wear it with caution or as Dior prescribes, dangle it over your arm like it’s no big d. Let the fur fly, scruples or otherwise.
