If you remember Vetememes, the same folks behind this Vetements bootleg parody line are back at it again with another tongue-in-cheek copycat brand: Boolenciaga. Its founder, 23-year-old Brooklynite Davil Tran, first found fame by remaking a raincoat similar to Vetements, renaming it Vetememes and selling it at a fraction of the original’s cost. Now, he’s sparking another viral sensation out of Balenciaga’s sold out logo cap through his Boolenciaga replica that’s retailing for merely US$65 (S$90) a pop.
Boolenciaga aside, it has been a thrilling week for fashion on Instagram with Men’s Fashion Week’s snazzy happenings — J.W.Anderson x Converse, Dolce & Gabbana’s millennial runway — and the LVMH Prize ceremony. With a designer-studded jury panel — Nicolas Ghesquière, Karl Lagerfeld, Phoebe Philo — along with Rihanna present to announce the winners, the LVMH Prize was awarded to burgeoning French label, Marine Serre.
What’s also burgeoning is the rapid rise of orange with advocates Bella Hadid and Elsa Hosk making a stylish case for the fluorescent hue. Off-White’s distinctly orange-spritzed Pitti Uomo show should mean something, too. Not buying the idea of a vivid shade closely interlinked with a certain president as the next trending colour? Well, let’s hope Hermès’ pop-up laundromat — which comes washed in the brand’s signature orange shade — will change your mind.
From Jaden Smith’s Louis Vuitton return to Candice Swanepoel’s runway comeback, here are the week’s best fashion Instagram posts you need to see.
