Joseph is one of my absolute favourite stores and brands in London and good news is that they will finally launch an e-comm any day now in October. The entire Joseph collection and a great selection of some of my favourite designers will be available for worldwide sales, yeah!
Kicking off my Friday morning is Adele’s freshly released James Bond theme “Skyfall”. Ok, so I’m a sucker for Bond movies, well at least ever since Daniel Craig joined, enjoy this wonderful track that couldn’t be more Bond. Happy Friday!
On Sunday the 16th at 3pm (GMT) the Topshop Unique Show SS13 will be screened live for everyone to watch, but this time around, like seen on Burberry’s for the last few seasons, you can shop looks straight from the catwalk which will be yours within short. Not only that but you can also customise your buys and change colour of certain items, shop the beauty products and download the music from iTunes. So in all a completely whole new digital (and dangerously tempting!) show-shopping experience, which suddenly turns your seat back home closer to the goodies than 1′st row.
Tonight is Fashion’s Night Out and I’ll be celebrating like last year over in NY. For those of you who don’t live in major cities around the globe you’ll find plenty of great offers and limited editions treats online as well. Phillip Lim celebrates with the release of his comic book ‘Kill the Night’, where every outfit worn by the superheroines are possible to shop. Ok, got a flight to catch, see you over in NY and have fun tonight everyone!!!
I’m still chilling on a Greek island but it’s impossible not keeping an eye on news updates and doing preparations for coming fashion weeks from my pool side. News of a new and very promising partnership is that Norwegian designer Andreas Melbostad is reported as Diesel Black Gold’s creative director after Sophia Kokosalaki’s departure was announced a few weeks ago. Melbostad was creative director at Phi for 6 years until 2009 were he was applauded for his textured leather and 80′s silhouettes, and has since then been running his own consulting firm working with major clients like Roberto Cavalli among others.
Balenciaga’s fall ads, photographed by Steven Meisel, include my absolute favorite pieces by the fashion house this fall, I know I’m repeating myself but I find all these jumpers and fabrics breathtaking. Also, the other day I got the chance to check out most of the jewellery and shoes in this collection and though some was a little over the top 80′s for my liking there were definitely a few outstanding pieces, the shoes on top please send my way!
For you out there who are fans of Michael Kors watches here’s a little tip. Inspired by the classic runway watch model (a golden favorite in my own wardrobe) Michael Kors will release a limited collection in August in homage to his favorite city, NY. The watch has a diamond-embellished face and features the inscription ‘New York’, a skyline engraving on the back, and comes in a dark leather box with gold accents, I’d say a desirable collectors item for Kors-fans.
Images from fall campaigns have started to come out and my favorite so far is by Givenchy, not only cause the collection is a stunner on it’s own but I’m really weak for crazy dance moves videos. Enjoy the behind-scene-video below, it’s all in there, rave, face jewellery and Stella Tennant amongst others. Happy Monday Morning!
It’s been confirmed that the legendary French fashion house Yves Saint Laurent will be rebranded to Saint Laurent Paris. The “name change” is part of the newly appointed creative director of the house, Hedi Slimane’s, way of moving the house forward, reports WWD, however the YSL logo will remain the same.
I really like some of Phillip Lim’s looks in his Resort 2013 collection, casual, soft silhouettes with a cool vibe. I’m so into relaxed outfits these days (someone wake me up!) and wouldn’t mind slipping into any of these. Look number 3 and the b&w courts, yes please!
Here we go again, I think I’m in love with you Phoebe Philo, to loyal Celine fans not many words are needed. All the typical Celine elements are there though reinvented through even more slouchy silhouettes and even cooler put together styling. The scarves from fall collection are played around in different ways (loving that detailing!), not to mention the oversized portfolios and the plexi shoes, gotta get my name on lists for those.
Images Martin Maison Margiela
Wow, unconfirmed rumors are saying that H&M’s next designer collaboration will be with fashion house Martin Martin Margiela. If this buzz will be confirmed true I’ll salute it though I’m very curious how it would add up. I mean, the Margiela house is known for more than edgy cuts, and I wonder how they will manage to “re-pack” their gorgeous luxurious fabrics into highstreet price level, stay tuned….
