The Week in Fashion: Justin Bieber Takes Some (Miami) Heat, Abercrombie CEO Hates on Fat Girls, Public School Wins Big at CFDA Awards


The week's top stories in fashion news.

At Monday night's CFDA Awards ceremony, up-and-comers Maxwell Osbourne and Dao-Yi Chow, who launched Public School after meeting at Sean John, beat out industry fave Todd Snyder for the coveted Menswear Designer of the Year award. Made entirely in NYC, the label offers up streetwear with downtown swagger. Don't fret, private school kids—you're still invited to the party. (Stupiddope)

Since opening its doors 2009, Saturdays has become one of NYC's hippest boutique-slash-hangouts—complete with lounging artists and branded terry towels. Now, the brand is generating literal buzz with a custom-blend of La Colombe coffee beans, which may well inspire caffeine-fueled patrons to snap up those cotton hoodies and board shorts a little faster.

The Miami Heat defeated the Indiana Pacers in game 7, but the win was overshadowed by the Twitter-sphere's reaction to Justin Bieber's game-day look: gold chains, a shiny leather tee, and what appeared to be an acid-washed Miami Heat hat. The look drew praise from Beliebers, but as one observant pointed out, "Justin Bieber is dressed the way Law & Order thinks famous people dress." (Complex)

JFK may be best known (sartorially speaking) for boat shoes and chino shorts, but the most fashionable Pres of the 20th century also had some talent in the kitchen. Menswear blog A Continuous Lean found his special recipe for fish chowder while poring over the Kennedy archives. The finishing touch? A sprinkling of "pork dice." Mmm. (A Continuous Lean)

Abercrombie & Fitch dresses its bigger female employees in menswear—which would be a hip, borrowed-from-the-boys thing were it not because the brand doesn't make size XL for women. According to the CEO—who, we suspect, harbors a grade-school grudge against the smart fat kid that made him look dumb in front of Susie that one time—explains how "good-looking people attract other good-looking people, and we want to market to cool, good-looking people. We don't market to anyone other than that." (NYMag)
