Let’s be honest with ourselves. Lingerie is manufactured for women to wear. However, much of the purpose behind lingerie is to stir the fantasies of men. You only need to look at the advertisements of some of the biggest lingerie brands to see that most bras, panties, and accessories are designed to put men in a state of arousal. However, some of that might be changing. More and more lingerie brands are targeting their products with the message that men are optional when it comes to lingerie.
Some of it started with a woman named Heidi Zak. Zak realize one morning that she hated having to shop for bras. She quickly realized this was because so many bars were designed for appearance and not for comfort. She started a business called ThirdLove. ThirdLove sells basic undergarments designed by women for women. Run exclusively online, Thirdlove allows women to purchase bras and panties without all the hangers, fluorescent lighting, and annoying overhead music.
Zak’s brand is also reshaping the messages behind lingerie. Foe example, ThirdLove doesn’t view lingerie as a product for sexual fantasy. Instead, it show how lingerie can provide comfort, confidence, and empowerment. Perhaps this message is best communicated through the advertisements on the ThirdLove website. Traditionally, lingerie models have been photographed gazing sensually into the camera. At ThirdLove, the models gaze downward at themselves. This suggests the model is wearing the lingerie for her own comfort and not the for the pleasure of someone else. What a terrific message!
Pretty much everyone can agree that 2016 has been a very rough year for the world. Between politic strife, bombings and the loss of incredible entertainers, this year has been a doozy. However, the sun will still rise, and Pantone has released a new color for 2017.
Every year, the company takes part in this tradition, which gives us a way to focus upon the trajectory of humanity while also staying stylish. Simply by being anointed the year’s most relevant color, this hue will undoubtedly be included in more fashion lines and paint schemes. This year’s color is Greenery, which is a spunky shade of green with a hint of yellow thrown in. It’s meant to evoke rejuvenation and spring, heralding a new season. With so many people on the planet looking forward to the new year, it certainly seems appropriate.
Pantone has been tracking trends within the past year, and Greenery definitely stands out as a rebellious choice that defines the need for awakening. The color definitely captures a certain kind of passion for nature, as well as the joy of a new year. Since it is such a bold shade, experts are betting that Greenery will show up mostly in workout clothes and swimwear this year. Fashionistas will most likely use the color to accent their more neutral wardrobe choices, so don’t be surprised if you see a lot of handkerchiefs and scarves in this remarkable shade.
With ratings that either dip or remain lackluster with each passing year, it would seem that the once glorious Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is plagued by waning enthusiasm. For two years in a row, the famous fashion show has been hurting in the numbers department. Many in the fashion industry—and outside of it—are even questioning why the show exists. It does seem like somewhat of an anomaly these days. With all of the entertainment now available on the web, the fashion show is definitely less titillating than it once would have been perceived.
It’s not for a lack of star power, either. With top models Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid hitting the runway as anointed Angels, one would think that the current generation would get into it. However, this has not been the case. Perhaps the supermodels of yesteryear—Gisele Bundchen and Naomi Campbell among them—had something that translated with audiences in a way that this current crop of models can’t muster. In a world where it takes a lot to shock, the outfits that the models parade down the runway don’t seem surprising or even particularly fashion-forward. However, some viewers have complained to the FCC about the skimpy outfits.
In the coming years, it should be interesting to see if the network decides that this holiday mainstay needs to go. Although it has been fun watching the Angels take on the world in their princess-pink plane, one can’t help but wonder if it’s time for something new.
Maggie Winter and Jac Cameroon co-founded All Year Round (AYR) in 2014. AYR is an e-commerce clothing brand consisting of women’s wear with the major focus on denim. The company has its headquarters in New York City, and it lately opened a new store in Lafayette Street, Soho. The AYR, which is a brother company to Bonobos, launched Guideshop in April 2014.

AYR as an Independent Company
When All Year Round began, they were operating under Bonobos. Before their launch, they had established some good contact with their manufacturing company in Los Angeles, which made them some pairs of jeans. Their first clients were friends who purchased the jeans from a lost in Garment District.

Marketing the Brand
They have always relied on the press and word of mouth in marketing their brands.

Their large client’s base includes some renowned figures such as Karlie Kloss, Crissy Teigen, and Leandra Medine. AYR intends to expand their business to include international shipping by 2017.

There’s no doubt that Tom Ford is one of the best fashion designers living today. Although he is known for single-handedly reviving the Gucci brand back in the nineties—and helping to launch the career of supermodel Gisele Bundchen—Ton Ford’s own line has also been a raging success. Perhaps this is why his latest move into directing films hasn’t been that surprising; apparently there is nothing that this talented man can’t do.
However, it also seems as though Ton Ford the director may be unaware that the movie industry tends to have a few more rules than the fashion world. Recently, he ruffled some feathers when his team sent out bottles of his fragrances to promote his new film Nocturnal Animals. With many films in hot contention for Golden Globe nominations, the voters at the Hollywood Foreign Press were undoubtedly deluged with swag.
The issue wasn’t the fact that a gift was sent; the kerfuffle was over the fact that the gifts were pricey items retailing at just under $200. There is a cap that these promotional items are not permitted to exceed—$95. In order to cut down on the cost and make things fair, voters were instructed to send one bottle back. With so many people loyal to Tom Ford’s fashion lines—and his incredibly popular fragrances—it wouldn’t be surprising if some of the recipients sent back an empty box.
