From Fierce Parisian Editorials to Grungy Pop-Up Shops

 - Aug 31, 2014
Grunge-inspired and thrown-together-at-the-last-minute looks are at the center of the top August 2014 Fashion ideas. With the days becoming shorter and the nights slightly cooler, fashion is making the inevitable transition to fall.

Magazine editorials, campaigns and runways are waving goodbye to the vibrancy and romanticism that characterized this year's most popular spring and summer looks and saying hello to darker color and longer sleeves. Designers, from Stella Maxwell to Lazy Oaf, are channeling their inner rebellious spirit to offer clothing that appeals to both the laidback hipster and contemporary fashionista.

This idea is also showcased in retail; the A.P.C. shop in Brooklyn, which was created in collaboration with Kanye West, boasts a variety of minimalist and dark-hued clothing for both men and women.

Lastly, the architectural feat in the form of shoes from designer Silvia Fado certainly deserves a mention. These sky-high heels actually absorb the impacts of everyday walking, proving that style and function can live happily ever after.
