View this post on Instagram A post shared by D Ô E N (@shopdoen) While it’s still too early to determine which dress will go viral and acquire a precursory ‘the’ this season – becoming The Dress of summer 2021, if you will – in a corner of the internet there’s already a frock putting in the work. Made by Santa Barbara-based, sister-owned label Doên, the Amarillo is a thigh-skimming baby doll with puff sleeves and a body of patchwork. The dress, and its calf-length sibling, the Darby, are bold signifiers of the craft- and cottagecore trends that emerged towards the end of the last decade, picking up momentum in 2020. Brought to you most prominently by TikTok – read: Harry Styles’s J.W. Anderson cardigan challenge – the patchwork trend specifically has manifested in multiple

How to get the Telfar Shopping Bag that is always sold out

Gregory P. Daily

For the most part, last year’s biggest shopping trends were pretty easy to predict. From tie-dye sweatsuits to the nap dress, we were looking for items that would keep us comfortable while we stayed home and adjusted to our new normal. So when the Telfar Shopping Bag became one of the most-wanted accessories of the year, it was somewhat surprising.

The global fashion shopping platform, Lyst, revealed in their Year in Fashion Report at the end of 2020 that searches for the brand saw a 270 percent increase week-on-week since August.

While Telfar makes a variety of products, from shoes to apparel, none are quite as popular as the cult-favorite Shopping Bag. It ranges in price from $150 to $257 and

The RealReal, the quickly growing digital consignment store and fashion editors’ best-kept shopping secret, is now expanding its second-life fashion enterprise with its own original line. The debut collection consists entirely of upcycled pieces created in partnership with eight luxury brands: Balenciaga, Dries Van Noten, Stella McCartney, Jacquemus, Simone Rocha, Zero + Maria Cornejo, Ulla Johnson, and A-Cold-Wall.

Unfinished American quilts act as the unifying design element, with Atelier & Repairs peppering bits of them onto each piece to cover or

‘Vaccine ready’: Fashion brand Revolve mocked for shirt section

Gregory P. Daily

Call the P.C. fashion police.

Web-based fashion retailer Revolve.com is currently getting dragged by shoppers across social media who demand to know why the website would create a section for “vaccine ready,” off-the-shoulder tops — priced between about $70 and $300.

Under the clothing category “Tops” appears the tagline “Vaccine Ready,” which presents 100 different styles of shoulder-baring blouses — from frilly peasant tops to body-baring bralettes — ensuring your arm is ready to receive a jab without so much as rolling up a sleeve.
