Threeasfour


Angi, Adi, and Gabi of Threeasfour stroll through Chinatown with Doutzen, and a gaggle of tourists. See, there are normal size people in Vogue!

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards fascinate me; there's something about bringing a label out of obscurity and thrusting them in the icy face of Anna Wintour that greatly appeals to me. (Especially in the case of Proenza Schouler; Jack and Lazaro are totally Anna's buttboys). It's no surprise if Phillip Lim wins this year (hello, the white floral shirtdress craze) but I'm drawn to the designs of Threeasfour. Threeasfour originated in 2001, in New York with four young, downtown designers: Adi, Ange, Kai and Gabi. They even shared a bed together as young, burgeoning yet
poor designers, how cute! Although Kai left to start up an eponymous line, the remaining three wound up as CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists. With such avant garde names, it is no wonder that these avant garde garments are simply exquisite. I am such a sucker for flowy ruffled shiz, sigh.

Beautiful. The last dress is very Jil Sander-esque, isn't it?

But I didn' get the chance to visit any H&M because the H&Ms that sell Cavalli are too far...And now I guess it's too late. Shitttt
