    8 adaptable clothing brands for people with disabilities

    New York Post may be compensated and/or receive an affiliate commission if you buy through our links. You may find yourself asking what adaptive clothing is. The truth is, this is a question for many, as it usually arises from the lack of integration with those less abled. In other words, if you aren’t a part of the disabled community, which is comprised of those with disabilities and those that know someone with a disability, you would never have a need to understand the importance of adaptive clothing. While adaptive clothing isn’t a need to everyone, it is pivotal to

    A First Look at Nigo’s Kenzo, Where the Clothing is the Star of the Show

    “There were flower patterns that I had never seen before. Great stuff that just didn’t get repeated as the brand moved into its bigger, let’s say more successful phase. A lot of the early shapes were very experimental in a way that wasn’t happening so much in the brand in the ’80s,” he says. “I found some of those ideas to be interesting too.”  For his fall 2022 debut, flower prints and some of Takada’s own sketches from the 1970s are recreated on garments and accessories. Other ideas from the Kenzo archive, like Harris tweed tailoring and shawl-meets-snood collars, are

    Amazon is opening its first physical clothing store

    Amazon is opening its first-ever Amazon Style physical clothing store with the promise of a high-tech shopping experience, confirming a rumor from last year.

The first store is coming to The Americana at Brand in Los Angeles sometime “later this year,” the company said. Amazon said it will offer “hundreds of brands” chosen by fashion curators and “feedback provided by millions of customers shopping on Amazon.com.”

    The rise and fall of Esprit, SF’s coolest clothing brand

    In 1991, San Francisco clothing brand Esprit sent a note to 200,000 young people with a simple question: “What would you do to make the world better?” They turned the responses into a controversial ad campaign that ran on MTV and 11 other channels, giving teens the thrill of being heard and scandalizing their parents. “Give back the land stolen from Native Americans,” one ad demanded. “I would distribute condoms in every high school in America,” read another. “I’d keep a woman’s right to choose, unless George Bush is free to babysit.” In a country still grappling with the

    Why Does Tom Brady’s Clothing Brand Exist?

    Would anyone really mind if Tom Brady took a break for a few months? Between again taking the Bucs to the playoffs, wading into NFTs, and his many other exploits (pseudoscientific training regimen, anyone?), it’s never not Tom time. But especially with BRADY, his eponymous clothing line, we’d be happy to see Tom take a step back. If you’ve missed the myriad teasers leading tp to BRADY’s January 12 launch — or, perhaps, if it was obscured by the constant deluge of Brady news — all you really need to know is that it’s a rather tame athleisure-leaning

    Amelia Earhart Once Designed a Clothing Line

    Today it’s not unusual for a celebrity to launch a clothing line. Everyone from Michael Strahan to Rachael Ray has designed or endorsed apparel, including a number of high-profile athletes. They owe some debt of gratitude to pioneering aviator Amelia Earhart, who was one of the first notable figures to dabble in fashion design. Fashion at 40,000 feet As the first woman to fly both solo and nonstop across the Atlantic, Earhart had a spectacular career as a pilot. But those achievements didn’t necessarily come with financial benefits. For that, Earhart turned to what was then a novel business
