Take cover! The balaclava's finest fashion moments - from Calvin Klein to Kanye West

One year ago   |   By The Guardian

Raf Simons sent the politically charged headwear down the catwalk at New York fashion week - but he's not the first to turn it into a style statement Not one to shy away from making his fashion shows a social and political commentary, Raf Simons continued his provocative streak at Calvin Klein at New York fashion week on Tuesday. His sartorial weapon of choice this season? The balaclava. As one of the most connotation-laden pieces of headgear - associated with war and terror, concealment and protection - it is surely no coincidence that Simons made it a focal point.

One year ago   |   By The Guardian

Ricardo Seco stays political at New York Fashion Week

One year ago   |   By Fashion United

Bright colors, bold prints and sportiness were the core essence of Ricardo
Seco's fall/winter 2018 at New York Fashion Week. There was also one other element that couldn't go ignored: the political.
