Surprise: This Bra Trend Is Over

Just like handbags, shoes, and denim, the lingerie world has seen its fair share of trends come and go. In particular, it’s almost impossible to keep track of the popularity of different bra styles—from push-ups and sports bras to racerback and strapless versions, there are a million iterations to choose from at any given time. But what’s in and what’s out right now? The verdict: The push-up bra is over, and the bralette is in. 

Fast Company took an in-depth look at the statistics behind the trend. The site reported on lingerie company True & Co.’s bra fit quiz, which surveyed 2.7 million women. The results showed that four out of five women don’t wear push-up bras anymore—instead, they’re turning to bralettes. “True & Co.’spush-up sales dropped from 24% to 15% in a single year,...

When Ji Oh debuted her eponymous womenwear line at New York Fashion Week in 2014, her fall collection landed on the cover of WWD the following day and Barneys New York placed an order. “It was very memorable and rewarding,” she says. “And I felt like, ‘Okay, now I can do this.'” Oh’s checklist of achievements as a young designer on the rise only continued, and 2016 has proven to be a breakout year. Not only did she earn a sponsorship to show during Made Fashion Week in February, but the CFDA also selected Oh as a member of the CFDA Fashion Incubator Class of 2018, and she was named a finalist in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund competition.

The Stars Who Slayed the Red Carpet in Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane

Even though rumors had been circulating for awhile now, waking up to the news that Hedi Slimane was officially leaving Saint Laurent came as no less of a shock (and on April Fool’s Day, too).

As for design, he repositioned the French luxury house and gave it a rocker edge that blended archival pieces with a dangerous streak of underground cool, like his cropped, modern-day take on Saint Laurent’s original green fur coat from the 1970s in his spring 2015 collection.

It was this refreshing overhaul that has led to a rediscovery of the brand for some ...

At an event being excoriated if not boycotted outright for its neglect of minorities, the red-carpet parade, in recent years derided for objectifying women, might have been claimed this year by nimble stylists as an opportunity to champion designers of color and independence.

But instead, viewers were treated mostly to a numbing procession of corporate labels including Chanel (Julianne Moore, in a deeply V-necked black gown with glitte...
