LOOKCITY: On Loving Bill Cunningham, Alex Henderson, And Discounted Fluevogs

by Jenny Bachynski | LA based Okyn Vovk just released its new video for the Spring 2013 collection (pieces available at Vancouver’s Roden Gray).

Local favourite Alex Henderson of Henderson Dry Goods just launched a new website with some great looks at some new pieces. Check out her custom-designed mirrors at The Acorn, and mark your calendars for this November when Walrus will host exhibition of Alex’s work.

The Anthology pointed me in the direction of Intelligent Clashing. If you haven’t heard of it, think Tumblr mixed with Pinterest and beware: you might spend endless hours on this site.

James Franco directs a new ad campaign for denim brand 7 for all mankind.

Top fashion stylist Rachel Zoe will be visiting Vancouver’s Holt Renfrew on August 9th to show off her new Fall 2012 collection and table a Q&A with fans.

Fashion history nerds rejoice: a very interesting discovery that could change how we look at the undergarments of the past.

We love big totes and we love Bill Cunningham. This video gets us excited for Fall because the season makes carrying around a huge bag seem perfectly reasonable…

On the lookout for some sale-priced Fluevogs? Check out the Fluemarket.

The Fall collection from Broken Promises has just debuted and it’s pretty awesome. Each piece is constructed by designer Karen La in her private studio. Find Broken Promises at TODAY and Nouvelle Nouvelle.

Beautiful shots of skateboarders in Rag & Bone’s new spring 2013 collection.

Soemthing to think about: is it wrong to use creative fundraising outlets when you already have tons of cash?

Some backstory on one of our best local brands: Wings + Horns.

An interview with jewellery designer Michael Doyle of Victoria, BC.

Secret Location had a vintage Chanel party.

Absolutely loving these inspiring fashion illustrations from Paris Fashion Week.
