Kicking off on Jan. 22, Paris Couture Week started with a bang, otherwise known as Schiaparelli’s Haute Couture show. It’s become an unspoken tradition for attendees to turn up in their wildest outfits, each embodying the brand’s famously theatrical aesthetic. Remember Doja Cat’s all-red ensemble or Kylie Jenner’s viral lion head dress? Both happened at a Schiaparelli runway show.

This year, the label brought together yet another stacked guest list, featuring the industry’s brightest: Zendaya, Hunter Schafer, Rihanna, and Jennifer Lopez. A fashion week fixture in her own right, Lopez made her 2024 debut at the brand’s Spring/Summer ’24 show. And the trend she chose to commemorate? No-pants, of course.

J.Lo’s Take On The No-Pants Trend

The Hustlers star wore a masterpiece of a jacket, custom-designed by Daniel Roseberry, the fashion house’s creative director. Even among a smattering of statement accessories, the winter white outerwear was easily the star of her outfit. She styled it with a ribbed turtleneck equipped with Schiaparelli’s signature twisty sculptural accents.

Her play on the no-pants look came in next; Lopez tucked her sweater into opaque tights, which she wore in place of actual pants. She treated the stockings like any other pair of trousers and wrapped a massive cream belt around the waistband, effectively elevating the trend.

Lopez is a big fan of the pantsless look — in fact, she previously took the style for a spin during last season’s New York Fashion Week. Now that couture season is here, Lopez took a page out of her own bottoms-eschewing playbook and made it appropriate for the high-fashion destination.

Though the no-pants look always causes quite a stir, the wildest part of her ensemble wasn’t her lack of garments. It’s her

“If you ask women about their clothes, they tell you about their lives.” That’s what Delia said after she and her sister, the late famed writer-director Nora Ephron, asked 100 of their friends “to tell us the stories of their clothes.” The sisters then synthesized those stories into a play called, “Love, Loss and What I Wore” (debuted off-Broadway in 2009). “Nora said the play is about identity,” that is, the identities we reflect or try to be through our clothing, shoes and accessories, Kristin Marguerite Doige wrote in Nora Ephron: A Biography.

“I tried spending quite a lot of money on a purse, the theory being that having an expensive purse would inspire me to become a different person,” Nora wrote in her bestselling book, I Feel Bad About My Neck.

“One of Delia’s contributions about high heels,” Doige continued, “provid(ed) thoughtful fodder for the ongoing problematic relationship women have with the things they must wear, want to wear, hate to wear, and need to wear as they perform their femininity at work and at home.”

Our clothing reflects, “who you were when you bought the thing, wore the thing, and most importantly, who or what you love, and perhaps lost in it,” Doige wrote. “It’s about relationships – not with the clothes themselves, but with the people they represent – mothers, sisters, daughters, husbands, lovers.”

I’d add that what we wear for “work” reflects how we identify with

Cartoon boots, taxidermy animal heads and blow up latex bodysuits—these are the moments that defined fashion in 2023.

This past year was one of shock, and bold, unapologetic fashion statements. We saw style that blurred the lines between online and offline, reality and artificial intelligence. It wasn’t a dull year for fashion, and here are some of the top highlights that shook things up. At it’s core, 2023 fashion was driven by internet culture.

Nobody has designed a more viral boot like the cartoon boots by MSCHF. They’ve been introduced in red, black and created a collaboration with Crocs for a yellow boot. Granted, this brand (founded by a brilliant New York art collective) is all about showing off. They’re no stranger to having influencers wearing their $350 boots just for the gram, but that isn’t where it ends—they shine on the red carpet, too.

Who can forget when Armani White wore the yellow Crocs boots on the red carpet this year for yet another unforgettable MSCHF moment? It’s a snapshot of our current pop culture obsession with emojis, allowing us to step into a digital realm (without VR goggles, of course).

An artificial intelligence-made image of the Pope wearing a white puffer coat went viral this year, giving the papacy some blinged-out, hip hop credibility. The

With each passing year, the fashion industry shape-shifts to mimic the zeitgeist. In 2020, fortunate designers across the globe transformed their ateliers into production centers for masks and medical supplies, in response to the onset of the COVID pandemic. The following year, Y2K had its glorious revival, as consumers found comfort in the past while practicing social distancing in the turbulent modern-day. 2022 saw the rise of the “-core,” or the widely-popular suffix that allowed TikTok users to turn practically any noun into a niche fashion trend; and thanks to its oversaturation, 2023 was predominantly about paring back, in the wake of quiet luxury.

Now, as 2024 is only days away, fashion’s next chapter is just beginning to write itself, and the industry’s surroundings are uncertain. To say the least, the world’s cultural and sociopolitical climates are tumultuous, and the calls for more sustainable industry practices are louder than ever. Designers know this to be true, and many of their outlooks for next year reflect a unified hunt for authenticity, transparency and necessity. The industry is fatigued by the pursuit of virality, and there’s a yearning for a larger spotlight on the fundamentals of true fashion design. In 2024, designers want to push the creative needle forward with caution — to preserve the environment, to make space for up-and-comers and to maintain their individuality.

Below, Hypebeast sat down with 24 designers to understand what the fashion industry can expect in 2024.

Willy Chavarria

How do you hope to see the fashion industry evolve over the next year?

I hope to see our values shift a bit and consume less fashion. I love clothing and I sell clothing, but I intend to focus on smaller collections with heirloom quality so that pieces can be worn for years and

Patrick Ta Talks Beauty Tips

When Patrick Ta talks beauty, you listen. 

The celebrity makeup artist and glam expert — who has worked with everyone from Gigi Hadid and Shay Mitchell to Camila Cabello and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and has his own cosmetics company — exclusively opened up to Us Weekly about his “unexpected” skincare secret: juicing.

Ta discovered the beauty benefits of juicing through his recent partnership with Pressed Juicery, which helped get him through New York Fashion Week earlier this year. “My favorite Pressed Juice is the Pressed Juicery 7-Day Simple Cleanse,” he told Us. “I love this because when I have a long week of being on set or at the office, I am not able to eat as healthy as I would like to. Starting my day with a bottle of Simple Cleanse allows my body to reset first thing in the morning.” 

He continued, “Juicing is a great for clear skin because when you are putting goodness in your body, you really are renewing your skin from inside out. Simple Cleanse has 25 percent of your daily vitamin C in one bottle. What you put in your body is absolutely reflected in your skin.” 

In addition to juicing, Ta dished on his favorite tips, trends and hacks.

What are your thoughts on TikTok giving every beauty trend a name? 

“I absolutely love TikTok giving beauty trends a name because it encourages people to try new makeup products and techniques that they wouldn’t otherwise. People can then see what products/techniques work for their face, and which ones do not.”

Hunter Schafer is one of those celebrities that seemingly popped up out of nowhere. In 2019, she made her acting debut as Jules in the hit HBO show Euphoria, and suddenly, she was everywhere. But she didn’t actually just appear over night, Schafer actually cut her teeth in the modeling world long before she got into acting. That might be why, by the time she started hitting red carpets to promote her new projects, she already had her personal style completely figured out. Schafer has never played by the rules when it comes to dressing for events. She loves to take risks, which is why she usually gravitates toward more out-of-the-box designers like Rick Owens and Daniel Roseberry of Schiaparelli. Of course, her ambassadorship with Prada has also resulted in some best dressed list placements. She is constantly stepping out in custom looks from the house, many of which are inspired by vintage creations. Clearly, Schafer has an eye for fashion, which means every time she appears on the red carpet, it is an absolute delight. Below, we’re looking back at her short time in the spotlight, and all of the great looks she has already managed to squeeze in so far.

Kyoto, the Japanese city often referred to as the country’s cultural capital, is renowned for its historic temples, its unique gardens—and its manhole covers. Unlike most sewage covers across the globe, Japan’s manhole lids are an unusual canvas for original artwork. Fans of the elaborately decorated covers, a group known as “drainspotters” or “manholers,” can now get their hands on three historic models, as Kyoto’s municipal government is, for the first time, offering up the covers to the public.

The intricate lids have long been a source of revenue for Japan’s sewer system and a tourism draw. In response to rising interest in the covers as a collectible item, Kyoto is now putting three different obsolete versions, manufactured in 1978, 1981 and 1990, up for sale, according to The Mainichi Shimbun. While new maintenance hole lids typically cost around 60,000 yen ($400), the city’s municipal government will sell the covers for only 5,500 yen ($37) each.

The iron lids, which weigh up to 90 kg, feature designs specific to Kyoto. One displays a pattern of “court carriage” wheels, while the others show the city’s emblem at the center. As the covers have been in use for more than 30 years, they also exhibit signs of wear.

Why does Japan have such intricate manhole covers?

Custom manhole designs can be found in 95 percent of Japan’s municipalities and often contain references to the specific region’s history and culture. Even Kyoto University has its own sewage cover, complete with the institution’s abbreviation in Japanese. Hello Kitty designs are on manholes across Tama City, while Osaka’s include depictions of its famous castle. And in Hiroshima, the city’s baseball team has been honored on

It’s just shy of 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 26, and Dior’s Spring/Summer 2024 show is moments from claiming the Paris Fashion Week stage. The street outside the venue is packed with fans, and a black BMW 7 Series’ slow approach incites their feverish cheers. BLACKPINK’s Jisoo emerges from the vehicle with a four-man security detail, wearing the House’s latest designs and waving like a royal to the sea of unfamiliar faces that have been waiting just to catch a glimpse of her brisk excursion to the door from behind a comfortably-distanced barricade. This appearance, coupled with her front-row attendance at the show, garnered $1.6 million USD worth of media impact value (MIV), or online visibility. The echo mentions, or “buzz” surrounding her presence, added an extra $6.5 million USD to the total, according to online data platform Launchmetrics. In fact, Jisoo’s attendance at the Dior show alone earned more MIV than 86% of brands showcasing at the biannual fashion affair.

K-pop is this decade’s international music supernova: as it exploded from Seoul to the world, groups like BTS and BLACKPINK have corralled fandoms that level the likes of those for Beyoncé and Taylor Swift while smashing worldwide release charts and effortlessly selling out stadium tours. At first, the fashion industry was slow to welcome the South Korean stars into its notoriously exclusive circle (BTS only attended their first fashion show for Louis Vuitton in 2021, despite having debuted in 2013 and earned several No. 1 hits in the years prior), but once their inclusion was proven unprecedentedly valuable, the show invites, collaborations and ambassadorships came flowing in abundance.

ICYMI: Schoolcore, a trending subdivision of preppy style, is having a moment. Popularized by celebrities, influencers, and fashion brands — Thom Browne, Chopova Lowena, Miu Miu, etc. — the uniform (quite literally) for this youthful aesthetic is comprised of a few key staples, namely, dress shirts, blazers, and plaid skirts. Still, the look is at its best when it veers slightly off course. That may look like swapping out loafers for combat boots or putting on a graphic tee in lieu of a button-down — but the variations don’t end there.

We caught up with fashion influencers Cara Lovello, Summer Rachel Warren, and Mercedes Gonzalez Mayo, who shared their favorite ways to wear a school girl outfit today. If you ask us, between HBO Max’s Gossip Girl and movies like 2022’s Do Revenge, there may be no better time than now to attempt this trend (that is, if you haven’t already). Ready to incorporate Britney Spears’s “Baby One More Time” vibes into your wardrobe?

Long socks have become an essential part of the preppy look, whether they’re crew length or knee-high. While they’re most often paired with loafers and babydoll shoes, we’re partial to these ballet flats, which give the popular aesthetic a refreshing update.
