Riccardo Tisci Tries to Make the Do-Rag Happen Again for Givenchy Spring 2015

It's pretty clear that Riccardo Tisci draws a lot of inspiration from hip-hop and black culture for his designs. His street sensibilities mixed with gothic and high fashion proclivities have made Givenchy one of the most popular brands in hip-hop–and it doesn't even have a song with an annoying refrain dedicated to it…at least, not yet. (A$AP Rocky, your move). And while we love that Riccardo brings 'round the way fashion to the Paris runway, there are certain hip-hop trends that are better left in the past. Like for example, do-rags.

After the world suffered through their ubiquity in the 90s and early aughts, we thought we would never see do-rags again. Tailored suits and skinny jeans replaced oversized throwback jerseys and baggy jeans, leaving the do-rag looking out of place with the streamlined, tailored aesthetic that was becoming popular thanks to Jay Z and Kanye West

But Tisci must be feeling very nostalgic for the year 2002, because for his Spring 2015 menswear collection, he sent models down the runway in stocking caps that are giving us serious high fashion do-rag vibes, and we are NOT into it. The clothes? Oh, those are fantastic as usual, but knowing Riccardo's penchant for starting trends…and Kanye West's eagerness to outfit himself with quirky runway accessories, we think this whole stocking cap thing is a sleeping giant of a trend just looking for the right opportunity to come back and annoy us.

So, from us to you, Mr. Tisci, please, please don't make do-rags a thing again. We were doing so well without them.

So Long, Farewell: A Final(ish) Post

I started working for tFS in college, helping out the former Managing Editor in a casual, part-time way, as the newly-launched editorial section of the site was first establishing itself. Once I graduated, I transitioned into a staff position and stayed on for four years. Today is my last day. I will no longer be contributing to the site daily, but I'll probably be around from time-to-time. 

At the risk of sounding sentimental, I'm so grateful for everything. I've had a wonderful working experience, learned so much about fashion and online media, and formed relationships with some amazing people whom I'll remember for the rest of my life. I also feel lucky to know the tFS Forums as deeply as I do: You all are hilarious, brilliant and right about everything. 

I've also completed work that I'm extremely proud of, some of which I'm sharing here:

And that's all for now. So long!

Kendall Jenner Covers LOVE Magazine’s Latest Issue

Thought Kendall Jenner's modeling career was going to be a Fashion Week fluke? In recent months with gigs for Vogue titles and even a Givenchy campaign, it's clear that the industry's crush on Jenner isn't about to wane anytime soon. The reality star-cum-It-model has been tapped to cover the latest issue of Love magazine, solidifying our suspicions that Katie Grand might be a teensy bit obsessed with the young Jenner. Grand is responsible for casting her in the Marc Jacobs and Giles shows, and she even let Kendall take the reigns over the Love Instagram account for a week earlier this year. This time around, she's featuring Jenner front-and-center on the celebrated glossy.

The issue appears to have an all-American theme, shot by David Sims. Below the star-spangled title peers Jenner, with wisps of wet hair sticking to her face underneath her mouse-ear rain bonnet.

Proud mama Kris Jenner Instagrammed a shot of the cover, which she refers to as an "ad" in the caption: "Congrats @kendalljenner on your Ad for @thelovemagazine @kegrand #davidsims #GORGEOUS." Kendall also used the same wording on her own Instagram profile. 

We still think they mean cover, but if this is only an ad, then there's almost certainly more KJ for Love to come.
