A lil belly never killed nobody.

As someone who has loved fashion near since birth, Fashion Week has always fascinated me. To be fair, I'm drawn to anything that creates a spectacle of clothing and self-expression. Since I'm studying abroad in London I decided I would try and see a Fashion Week up close. Unfortunately, the mix of my irrelevancy and my procrastination left me with no way to get into a show or presentation. It ended up becoming a day of exploration: from Topshop Show Space at Tate Modern to Somerset House aka the former home of LFW.

Though there will forever be a hierarchy in the industry, one thing we have equal access to are the new trends. First, mesh had its comeback and now its best friend tulle is making her debut. This fabric is no longer reserved for ballerinas or couture gowns. Tulle is taking form in tops, dresses, and even accent paneling on "revamped vintage" pieces. Layer it over or under tops to give your OOTD a little extra umph. The fabric doesn't discriminate whether your style is more androgynous or boyish, if anything you can customize it. As we get closer to festival season and the harsh consequences of global warming, keep an eye out on tulle dresses over bralettes or paired with high-waisted briefs. 

Another piece making its way back into mainstream consciousness is the camera bag. Shoutout to Pop & Suki for getting this style in the hands of "It"-girls everywhere. Not only is it a great size for those trying to keep their purse essentials to a minimum, but it's perfect for those nights out. 

What I'm Wearing:

Let's get the record straight: yes, I know my brother is cooler than me. 

Wake up everyone! It's 2017. Fashion houses are starting to mix their gendered collections and the pieces themselves are becoming more androgynous. What caused this change? Perhaps it's the times we're living in as people are beginning to express and identify with all different parts of the sexual and gender identity spectrums. Or maybe it's strictly financial since many designers can't keep up with the grueling Fashion Week schedules thrust upon them. Maybe it's a mix of the two. So let's talk menswear. 
It's good to keep an eye out on what the boys are wearing because the trends usually remain the same between the two genders. The only guy I talk fashion and clothing with is my cool kid brother, Cameron. Back at home he was my (reluctant) resident photographer, but since he's a college boy with goals of jumping into the fashion world...here he is. 

His style can be segmented into his different brand obsessions: Superdry, Supreme, and now just about everything. We both went through this phase of obsessing over Yeezys, to the point where our family would trek to LA to enter a raffle. Now, we just stick to matching in merch. I asked him to text me a list of his favorite high fashion and street wear presentations and this is what he gave me:
The main theme behind his list is the screenprint piece. Alexander Wang's Spring 2017 collection is making a more subtle nod to the skate and surf culture of California than he did in his last collection. But he's gone from the simple "GIRLS" lettering to naked girls printed and sewn all over.

  TRAVIS SCOTT x Helmut Lang couldn't have dropped at a better time. Though Travis Scott said the capsule collection was inspired by his home state Texas, phrases like "no man's land" and "prototype" along with photos of fire and smoke seem to be channeling something dystopian. As for the rest of them, these are skate and surf brands you and friends should start wearing (besides Supreme) so you're not caught wearing the same brands as 13-year-old boys at The Grove.

All of these collections are shoppable, so check out Cameron's list below.

What He's Wearing:
