Protests in France against the fashion for thinness – archive, 1924 – The Guardian

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Protests are growing more frequent in Paris against the fashion of thinness imposed largely by the dressmakers, but also by the more recent activities of a sporting generation.While the latter is a more or less natural slimness, the dressmakers insist that all and sundry should adapt their forms to the tubular fashions of the day, even when these forms have far more in common with a sphere.

Maya Reik (L) with her grandmother and sister, Lauren. (Instagram – Tablet Magazine

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Not every social media-savvy teen-ager is focused on capturing and disseminating the Zeitgeist of youth culture. Take Israeli fashion designer Maya Reik, for example, whose creations and romantic allusions to European elegance on Instagram largely stem from a somewhat unlikely influence in this day and age: her own grandmother. Reik, 19, has been dreaming about fashion since she was a young girl in Beit Yanai, a moshav on the coast of Israel, north…

Is the $185 Prada ‘paperclip’ fashion’s latest mundane must-have? – The Guardian

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

BALENCIAGA | If you went down to Paris’s woods last Wednesday, you’d be sure of a big surprise: Demna Gvasalia opted to present his spring/summer 2018 Balenciaga men’s wear show in the leafy Bois de Boulogne, a park on the western outskirts of Paris.

Monday, June 26, 2017

As South Sudan’s civil war creates the world’s largest refugee crisis and widespread allegations of sexual and ethnic violence, the government is clamping down on the news media, journalists charge.
