3 WAYS TO WEAR TIE-DYE FROM ASOS

Whether it makes you think of ’70s hippies, your elementary school arts and crafts class or Carrie Bradshaw in SATC, tie-dye is officially back. On the SS19 runways, psychedelic prints got a high-fashion makeover via labels like Prada, Dior and Stella McCartney, and at the recent fashion weeks, all your fave influencers were repping hard for the trend. For inspo on how to wear it IRL, below ASOS.com gives you three ways to try it now…

Now that’s what I call ’90s

If this look doesn’t remind you of your childhood, did you even grow up in the ’90s? For real though, the tie-dye T-shirt, lace-up boots and dark lip vibe is a serious throwback moment.

Double trouble

Who knew a double tie-dye moment could look so sophisticated? This long-sleeve top and midi skirt get-up is a grown-up spin on the trend and we are so here for it. And, with the addition of some snake-print boots, it could actually be a great option for work (depending on your officewear etiquette). Tie-dye, we hardly knew ya.

Get into the groovy

If you want something different from your standard dress or jumpsuit for going out-out, this tie-dye T-shirt and legging-shorts look is the fresh and funky combo you need in your life.

Iconic Fashion Designer Karl Lagerfeld Has Passed Away

Fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld has died at age 85 after a cancer battle.

Lagerfeld is widely regarded as one of the most important and prolific designers of his generation and had held creative director roles at Fendi (since 1965), his namesake label (since 1974) and Chanel (since 1983) simultaneously.

The iconic designer is believed to have been unwell for two weeks before his death in a Paris hospital.

The House of Karl Lagerfeld has confirmed the news of his death, following French media reports. 

The official Instagram account for the fashion designer’s own label posted: “The House of KARL LAGERFELD shares, with deep emotion and sadness, the passing of its creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, on February 19, 2019, in Paris, France.”

Driven by a phenomenal sense of creativity, Karl was passionate, powerful and intensely curious.

Armine Ohanyan Spring Summer 2019 Haute Couture

Armenian designer, Armine Ohanyan, debuted her sustainable couture collection during Paris Couture Week, embracing environmental concern she looked to nature to find the inspiration.

The play between shapes, lights and movement comes together to create a skillful harmony. We are transported to an unreal world where the beauty of nature is preserved.

Nature is under threat by mankind so the designer draws attention to the causes of its destruction, such as climate change and other pollution on the species, wildlife and the biotope. Armine Ohanyan delivered an underwater-inspired fantasy filled with the “richness of the sea floor” and its colors and textures.

The use of new technology as 3D printing, using materials less common in textiles such as silicone and techniques like laser cutting reinforces her creations a modern image, even futuristic, revealing her as the incarnation of the new generation in Haute-Couture. Check out the entire lineup below.
