    Can Old-School Fine Jewelry Brands Woo Fickle Millennials?

    Heritage luxury fashion brands have been pretty slow to get on board with digital. But in the past couple of years, several fashion companies have worked hard to get their acts together: Houses like Burberry and Gucci have been particularly successful in engaging people on social media and delivering seamless e-commerce experiences, while Dolce & Gabbana and Fendi have made plenty of targeted efforts as well.

    Gucci to Off-White, Street to Sequins-And the Return of the Fanny Pack: What Sold in 2017?

    When Vogue asked five online powerhouses about what sold in 2017, there was confirmation of what we expected-Alessandro Michele is still the King Midas of Gucci; everything he touches is retail gold, while the desire for Balenciaga knows no bounds-and more than a few surprises; who knew that the fanny pack would virtually obliterate the concept of the It bag?

    The New Supermodelmania of 2017

Supermodelmania, the 21st-century version, is reaching its apogee. So perhaps it's time to figure out where it came from, and what the word even means in 2017.

    Virgil Abloh's 'Aggressively Creative' Agenda

    Virgil Abloh is fashion's most talked-about multitasker. The Illinois native has worn so many hats that we can run out of hyphens describing him. Engineer. Architect. DJ. Designer. Ikea collaborator. Watch the Throne art director. Kanye West's creative director. He's done it all.

    The Art of Self-Mockery

    From VETEMENTS appropriating discount culture, to Louis Vuitton selling its own counterfeit handbags, and Dolce & Gabbana promoting its own boycott. These are all examples of how some of the biggest names in fashion have mastered the art of self-mockery. For some, self-mockery is considered an artistic rhetoric.

    What are the most searched fashion terms of 2017?

    The Year in Sustainability: The Biggest News and What to Expect in 2018

    Remember this time last year, when we couldn't wait for 2016 to end and half-joked that it was the worst year ever? Let's just say we spoke too soon. This was arguably a worse year across the board, but here's the silver lining: 2017 also became a stage for certain causes to shine, including sustainability in fashion, which is the second-most polluting industry in the world.

    After years of war, young designers are trying to put Afghanistan back on the fashion map

    There was once a time when Kabul was known as the "Paris of Central Asia." Between the 1950s and 1970s, Afghanistan experienced a now-unimaginable period of stability, democratic reform, and liberalism. The country's fashion reflected this era: Old photos show women out on the streets in short skirts, chic scarves, and beehive hairdos.

    Gucci Moves Its Fine Jewelry Line Upmarket

    Mr. Michele, who calls himself "a passionate student of antique jewelry," has resurrected animalier styles, like those of the midcentury American jewelry designer David Webb, and for this new collection he has employed some vintage techniques like the intricate hand engraving used to create the animals' faces, skipping the rhodium plating now common on white gold so it retains a yellowish cast, and the use of old-fashioned raised settings for the tiny diamonds spangled across the fishtail of a ring.
