Fashion News

IT’S FASHION MONTH! We start this week in Paris where Karl Lagerfeld was not aMUSEd when his muse Cara Delevigne brought her new pup Leo to his couture show. For the record, the dog made it all the way into the Grand Palais before it was ejected, probably because Lagerfeld quickly realized the pup was way more fabulous than his entire collection.

STYLISH LAUNDRY? That might only be a thing when local clothing company Premium teams up with local artist collective No Kings, as they did for Premium’s pop-up in Union Market’s Maurice Electrical space last weekend. This only confirms our previously held belief that everything No Kings touches turns to cool – like this random garage at Atlantic Plumbing.Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 11.51.16 AM
Jaden Smith is the newest face of Louis Vuitton, looks better than all of us in a skirt.

In Soul Cycle’s continuing quest for world domination, (have you noticed how many have popped up in DC in the last few months, I just counted, there are FIVE) they have now partnered up with Target to bring us all the Target/Soul Cycle themed clothing we never knew we didn’t need.

And now BECAUSE YOU LOOKING GOOD IS IMPORTANT TO US, we tried out Stylisted! Check out our preview.

Boutique of the Week: PREMIUM
BAD NEWS: The PREMIUM Union Market pop-up (mentioned above) is OVER! GOOD NEWS: You can still buy their stylish locally designed clothing ONLINE! Here’s what co-founder Davin Gentry had to say about the brand: “It’s no secret that D.C.’s relatively small fashion scene isn’t often compared to those in L.A. or NYC. Premium wants to change that. But, it’s not about there being a huge style void in D.C. that we’re trying to fill. It’s more about making D.C. a style destination, and I’m convinced that Premium is at the forefront of making that a reality.” We can accept that.
