Utility as a Fetish at Fendi
"The fanciful tide may finally be turning, though, with this week’s Fendi show at Milan Fashion Week going absolutely buck for pockets. Pockets on swingy fall coats; pockets built into clear plastic jackets; and—perhaps most thrilling of all—pockets strapped at hip level in the form of the renovation-friendly utility belt. Has Karl Lagerfeld finally heard women’s pleas for extra storage space?"

Tyler, the Creator
"Cryptic pop star Tyler, the Creator whips up his own unique universe of music, TV, fashion and whatnot.

As Patagonia Continues to Win Over Fashion Fans, its Trademark is Proving Attractive, As Well
"Patagonia-inspired fleece jackets have been popping up on runways over the past several years, as high fashion brands putt their spin on the tried-and-true appeal of one of the Southern California-based sportswear brand’s staple garments.

Taylor Swift refusing to submit any traditional media at all, and Soon-Yi Previn, Woody Allen’s wife, interviewed by a longtime friend of Mr. Allen. This is the state of the celebrity profile, as the New York Times’ Jon Caramanica so aptly laid out in a new article, entitled, “R.I.P., the Celebrity Profile.”"

The Air Jordan 33 Waves Goodbye to Laces & Welcomes Fast Fit Technology
"Jordan Brand is ready to move onto the next chapter of its historic signature sneaker catalog. For Michael Jordan‘s 33rd signature model the Jumpman team eliminates the sneaker’s traditional lacing system for Fast Fit technology. Starting with its upper, the Air Jordan 33 takes the line’s next leap into the future with pull tabs on the tongue and heel for easy entry and exit. As you move towards the midfoot you’ll find a pull cord which locks you into the sneaker quicker than it would normally take to tie your sneaker. Unhinging the Fast Fit technology lies in a simple pull of its release cable locking mechanism."

What I Learned Attending My First Ever Fashion Week
"Losing your Fashion Week virginity is basically more stressful than losing your actual virginity because you have to wear clothes. Working in the same building as LFW HQ, I’ve seen the crowds that gather and the ensuing photoshoots documenting London’s most style-savvy (and also people wearing rubber gloves as headbands), and I. Was. Scared."

"In the 13 years since David Fischer started Highsnobiety, the sneaker, fashion, and music site has grown from a personal blog into a multi-faceted publisher and creative agency with more than 9 million monthly visitors to its site and 2.4 million Instagram followers. In that time, the fashion world has changed too, with the staggering growth of streetwear, the globalization of sneaker culture, and the rise of Instagram. Fischer, who is based in Berlin, has found a reach among young men that few in the fashion media have been able to achieve."
