The world has changed a lot since 2004’s Team America: World Police. At the time, the whole “America, fuck yeah!” attitude was still a funny concept because it was a recognizably absurd escalation of the post-9/11 patriotism that swept the country (while, in true Trey Parker and Matt Stone “giant douche/turd sandwich” fashion, also serving as a playful poke at the people who were concerned about the nation’s increasing commitment to actually bossing the planet around with military force). But that was before so many fascists and white supremacists really started to

Rickey Thompson On 2000s Fashion Trends & Coach’s Shanghai Show

When Rickey Thompson got the call to take on hosting duties for the Coach winter collection runway show in Shanghai, it was the location that initially drew him in.

Pink Papyrus Offers Beautiful Accessories For Dogs

Pet owners around the world want the best for their pets. For some, dogs are like family members and deserve to be treated as such.

Big Bags Are Back in a Big Way

On a recent doomscroll through Instagram, a photograph of Jennifer Lopez stopped me in my tracks. And no, it wasn’t a paparazzi shot of her and her ex-slash-current-love-interest Ben Affleck. It was of her lifting a humongous, bubblegum-pink Coach handbag up in the air, an image that was as absurd as it was appealing.

Turns out that the New York-based brand, for which Lopez is an ambassador, recently revived its Pillow Tabby shoulder bag in a bunch of happy hues for spring, giving it a larger-than-life makeover in an attention-grabbing campaign that also featured model and actress Camila Morrone and

How a trendy green dress divided TikTok

“Cottagecore,” “avant basic,” and “regencycore.” These are all fashion trends you’re probably familiar with if you’re on TikTok, not a Vogue subscriber.

Thanks to the app’s accessibility and insanely niche algorithm, the fashion industry is no longer the only voice directing new styles and trends. Now, millions of people are watching and making one-minute TikTok videos at a faster pace than those reading fashion magazines — allowing anyone, not just Anna Wintour, to be someone.
