FASHION///ERIN WASSON PREMIERES NEW COLLAB CLOTHING LINE WITH RVCA AT NYC FASHION WEEK

February 20, 2009  |  Fashion, Feature, News, NYC, RVCA  |  Comments Off

rvcawasson1d.jpg Supertouch homies RVCA have teamed up with anti-supermodel ERIN WASSON to create a new line of womenswear that premiered at FASHION WEEK in NYC on February 18th at the Milk Studios Penthouse to critical acclaim. A native of Dallas, Texas, the 27-year-old has become the bad girl of fashion that Kate Moss wishes she actually was with her take-no-prisoners approach to style. The show attracted a crew of hipsters and tastemakers who stood shoulder-to-shoulder with fashionistas to catch sight of Wasson’s to-die-for frame as much as the new gear she and her cadre of drool-worthy models were wearing.

"If you only wear one T-shirt this inauguration season..."

Finish it off with a pair of Cross Color overalls (only one strap fastened, of course) a Kanai jean jacket, and a Gumby fade, and you're a made man...

NYC///FASHIONISTA///STEPHEN SPROUSE LIVES ON AT DEITCH PROJECTS (WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM LOUIS VUITTON)

Undoubtedly, a legion of young hipsters, streetwear fashionistas, and luxury goods junkies would be left scratching their heads in bewilderment if pressed to elaborate on the legacy of STEPHEN SPROUSE. Luckily, the legendary downtown art shrine known as DEITCH PROJECTS, in collaboration with Parisian luxury brand LOUIS VUITTON has provided an immersive introduction to the late artist's indelible legacy in the form of their epic "Rock on Mars" retrospective exhibition that opened its doors to a cadre of NYC's illuminati last nite. A pioneering designer who cut his teeth in the fertile late '70s & early '80s downtown scene (his earliest client was downstairs neighbor Debbie Harry), Sprouse daringly infused day-glo graphic elements of crucial counterculture scenes like graffiti, punk, and hippies into an array of groundbreaking and always rock-centric fashion statements over the course of his roughly 20 year career. Forever plagued by soaring highs and crushing financial lows, the designer was rescued from the brink of obscurity by Marc Jacobs when the designer tapped him to create a new line of instantly sold-out designs for Louis Vuitton in 2001, effectively revitalizing his name in the process. Unfortunately, lung cancer would claim the Sprouse's life in 2004 exactly at the precipice of a major comeback that would never be. Funded by Louis Vuitton as a grand homage to the oft-underappreciated visionary, the Deitch exhibition collected previously unshown fine artworks originally created by Sprouse for an unrealized show called "Rock on Mars," with vintage fashion drawings and iconic clothing designs to provide the most comprehensive overview of the artist's prodigious oeuvre ever assembled. Opening to the public this weekend, the show is the first must-see event of the New Year, shining a much-needed light on an otherwise gloomy art scene still coping with the "morning after" of 2008’s crippling economic collapse.

Wiley's wild wovens on display at the premier of his "Down" show at Deitch projects earlier this month...

Painter KEHINDE WILEY's use of highly detailed floral motifs as backgrounds for his intricate portraits is legendary, and now the artist has translated this inspiration literally into a new line of clothing that will be making its commercial debut at the end of the year. Speaking to GQ magazine, Wiley explained: "In Nigeria I bought these amazing fabrics from open-air markets. I brought them back, photographed and sourced them for painting, then wondered what to do with them. I ended up working with the designer DAPO JAMIU-SOYOYE. You know that Michelin Man-style puffy coats? We made a series of those out of the fabrics and are going to sell them in a pop up store in New York in December '08 or January '09."

Prince's new kix, size men's 5... 

It's safe to say that we at Supertouch have a serious shoe fetish, but it's not often that we get to legitimately obsess over women's kix. The recent release of this sculptural pair of asymmetrical heels by London-based Iraqi modern architect ZAHA HADID for the little-known Brasilian eco shoe company MELISSA, however, proved to be just such an occasion, and stopped us in our tracks and made us stare just a little too long. And a model wasn't even wearing them. To celebrate the collaboration, Melissa has created a massive pair of the shoes as sculpture currently on display in their flagship boutique in Sao Paulo. Marc Newson, we expect your response in shoe form within six months. HAVE A LOOK: Read More

Available only at Parisian retail palace COLETTE, the shirt features a rendering of Sachs' Hello Kitty Eiffel Tower installation with the words "OBAMA 08" on the back.
