I don’t say this often…but my mind is blown. Designer Melitta Baumeister is a native of Berlin who is now based in NYC. A 2013 graduate of Parsons – The New School for Design, Baumeister presented an acclaimed FW 2014 capsule collection for VFILES—seen here—and obviously Rihanna ended up wearing that gorgeous black coat on the red carpet. Everything about this lookbook speaks to me—that the clothes manage to be both austere and whimsical (yes to banana-sculpted outerwear), the stark black and white, the exaggerated silhouettes, the industrial fabrics, and so on. Thank you, A magazine, for the fashion pro-tip. Thank you, Rihanna, for wearing everything we ever end up writing about.
