Nobody ever really thought that Kenzo was for pretty, innocent girls, but this ad just removed every doubt, just in case. Starring the latest Kenzo fragrance, Kenzo World, and the talented actress and model Margaret Qualley, this ad (directed by the great Spike Jonze) shows a certain amount of annoyance at pompous events and good etiquette. Ryan Heffington is the name behind this disturbing yet compelling choreography, and it will make sense if we tell you that he is the same behind Sia’s Chandelier. Yep. Enjoy the ad (titled My Mutant Brain, of all things) and the oddly fascinating soundtrack by Sam Spiegel & Ape Drums feat. Assassin.

Like everyone who has left a piece of heart in the 90s (and who hasn’t, nowadays?), here at Notorious we are madly in love with talented director Sofia Coppola. Her movies manage to capture the quintessential teenage spirit and frame the neverending (and often painful) journey that is growing up, becoming woman. Each one of her works has a powerful life in itself, a soundtrack to break your heart, a blueish filter and heaps of throwback fashion inspiration.
Among all these marvels, however, we cannot leave behind the so-called style files of the mother and creator of this 90s-inspired magic: Sofia Coppola herself. While back in the 90s she might have been called a proper fashion nymphette of the time, Sofia’s style evolution has now officially reached the heights of laid-back, Italian-inspired class.
Here she goes, shiny and incredibly inspirational, just like one of her movies.

Forget chunky. Or better, upgrade it. Uber chunky is the way to walk around in fall 2016. If last year made you fall in love with the chunk, this coming season is going to take you higher, and the sky is the limit.
What seemed simply bold has now reached Spice Girls levels, and this is how we like it: all or nothing. Welcome the super chunky boots for a walk on all the crunchy leaves of fall 2016!
Check the gallery, and Spice it up
Lily-Rose Depp seems to be everywhere nowadays, from runways to billboards, and one can’t help but seeing why. The 17-year-old, offspring of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, has charmed everyone from the world of fashion all the way to the one of cinema. In the upcoming French movie Planetarium, directed by Rebecca Zlotowski, Lily-Rose Depp and Natalie Portman play the part of two American mediums in 1930s Paris. The trailer is mostly in French, but, from what we could get, it all goes pretty wrong when the two ladies get involved with a producer who wants to include them in one of his movies.
Will Lily-Rose Depp officially follow her father’s footsteps? Most of the movies that see Lily starring are yet to be released. Let’s wait and see, my dears. Wait and see.

I am sorry I have to break this to you, but summer is over. Dead. Gone. As of next week, we will say goodbye to August and we will welcome September, and with it also all the things you don’t want to think about: end of the beach months, beginning of school, and the approach of Fall. Yay.
Ok, but it doesn’t need to be this dramatic. Actually, you know, Fall is a great season. I know it’s hard to let go of the freedom of putting on a sundress and sandals in the morning and just leaving the house like this. But there are solutions to the end-of-summer blues, I tell you. Here they go.
Go swimming every day, starting today
Even if you don’t want to. Even if you forgot to shave. If there is nowhere to swim, go to the park to sunbathe. I promise you that, by middle September, you’ll have had enough of bikinis and sweating and children screaming and sand / grass in your bag.
Think of the feasts
You know what’s coming up with Fall and Winter? Christmas. If you’re American, even Thanksgiving. Think of the food. Think of the celebrations. Think of the music. Think of Halloween, even!
Think of the layering
Yes, as we said, throwing on a sundress and sandals is bliss, but we cannot underestimate the pleasure of layering. Think of all the new pieces your wardrobe will just have to be filled with.
Think of the coziness
Yeah, heat is great, but have you tried to cuddle when it’s 30°? If you have, I am pretty sure you didn’t like it. Embrace the idea of the upcoming sweater weather, as well as blankets, hot chocolate and movies while it rains.
And don’t worry…it’s just another 10 months to next summer! Yes, I know this is a long time.

Yesterday, the world of fashion has lost a big name, Sonia Rykiel. Today, we remember her accomplishments in the same world. Her most memorable work was born in the 60s and the 70s, when Rykiel took Parisian Chic by storm and women’s approach to fashion during the liberation movement. Brave pieces, the very French striped sweaters, knits swinging between cropped and oversize and cinematic furs were what characterized the designer’s identity and remain staples in French fashion to this day.
Let’s take a look at Sonia Rykiel’s legacy, one groundbreaking piece at a time.

I know it sounds weird. I know you never thought it would be possible. But here we are: dad hats are en vogue, and there is nothing we can do about it but embrace it.
Once mainly a random item used by celebrities to disguise themselves in public, the dad hat has slowly but steadily ascended to the position of actual fashion accessory. Figuring quite well among all elements of the latest urban street trend, your dad’s favorite hat has now become also your favorite model’s favorite hat. Add it to your outfit for edge, and some degree of je ne sais quoi.
Looking for the cinematic and the delightful? We found it for you. The name is Nikki Chasin. Nikki is only 26 years old and she has always sort of been a fashion designer. After making it official graduating from Parsons in 2012, she began putting heart and soul in her brand which, she says, dresses women who want to “impress nobody but themselves.”
And this must be the reason why it is made for (and fits) all ages. Fabric is the focus, with inspiration starting from textures seen in every corner of the world. Her newest collection gives off an especially “wear what the hell you like”-vibe, and damn that’s refreshing.
In the gallery, you’ll find a preview of the FW16 collection. You can find more on the official website.
