Man Repeller x Shopbop: Part 1 Roundup

Launched less than a year ago, Leandra Medine’s The Man Repeller blog has already managed to catch the eye of some of the biggest names in fashion. All this week, Leandra will be blogging for Shopbop from NYFW.

New York Fashion Week part 1 has ended, but before we start basking in the glory of whatever part 2 promises (I’ve been disappointed with the lack of nether-region inspiration this season), let’s take a look back at some of the man-repelling finest from Shopbop’s favorites. Because nothing is more gratifying than knowing we have, once again, forfeited our licenses to date for the sake of sick fashion.

More fur presented itself at ADAM by Adam Lippes’s runway show. Paired with a chambray oxford and palazzo-esque trouser pants (also in denim), next fall’s Canadian tuxedo is getting a special New York update.

Alexander Wang proved once again how epic his breakthrough designs are. Sunglasses will be attached to our faces by means of a fur band, and sleepwear knickers on steroids will be the accepted mode of dress.

While Thakoon was more about the seamless print mixing and less about embracing a woman’s nether regions, I was delighted to see mullet skirts following us into next fall equipped with none other than plaid puffer jackets. What more could one ask for?

Hole-y tights! Charlotte Ronson took a cue from three decades and paid homage to the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s at her show: ombré oxford blouses, cut-up tights, metallic accents, and some very sweet pant/skirt combinations. He’ll never get it. We won’t care.

And finally, at Cushnie et Ochs, otherwise known as a neutered version of Maison Martin Margiela:

Feathers in topknots suggested Disney inspiration from Peter Pan while button-down oxfords and duty-length skirts guaranteed many a girls’ night.

Until tomorrow, happy man repelling and…Valentine’s Day. I guess.

NYFW F/W 2011 Look We Love: Alexander Wang

The ice princess at Alexander Wang. A silk satin streamer skirt paired with a mohair sweater is chic and sexy with barely there sandals. The leather change purse with furry rabbit tassels had us at hello.

NYFW Fall 2011: Rag & Bone


Vintage-inspired colorblock and varsity jackets on the Rag & Bone fall 2011 runway.

We always anticipate the Rag & Bone runway show; it provides a refreshing jumpstart to NYFW. The show opener confirmed our expectations, giving us an instant adrenaline rush. Old school Olympics came to mind with bright blue and burnt orange colorblock, sporty varsity jackets, chevron patterns, and tartan plaids. Innovative hybrids including the kilt/pant and clutch/glove provide practicality—pretty genius we must say!

Notable finishing touches: messy après-ski braids and flat gold chain chokers.

Man Repeller x Shopbop | Trend Spotting: Sheer Pants, Repeller or Propeller?

Launched less than a year ago, Leandra Medine’s The Man Repeller blog has already managed to catch the eye of some of the biggest names in fashion. All this week, Leandra will be blogging for Shopbop from NYFW.

In the last two days, I’ve so far mentally identified three key trends that will lend help to those on the quest to join the tribe and become bonafide Man Repellers in time for next fall.

Jason Wu, Ruffian, and (et hem) Kimberly Taylor gave the bowtie a proverbial thumbs up, while Peter Som, Rag & Bone, and Rebecca Taylor offered a lesson in mastering the art of the fur sleeve.

And as for that third trend, another sighting from Rebecca Taylor’s runway paired with one from Rebecca Minkoff’s runway suggested that sheer pants may very well be the next big trend sweeping the fashion scope. In light of such, it must be asked: can we repel while revealing our panties?


Rebecca Minkoff (left) and Rebecca Taylor.

Of course we can. Minkoff proved this with a little help from a lacey pattern running through the high-waist silhouette and some seriously ’80s-inspired under armor. And Rebecca Taylor confirmed it by adorning the sheer fabric with small bits of embroidery and a long striped sweater belted at the waist.

Should you prefer to wear a cropped sweater though, this is nothing a little visit to your grandmother’s underwear drawer can’t fix.

Go on now, try it out, and share your tales.

Until tomorrow, keep that bow tied tight.
