If you’re a fan like me of Topshop’s Unique line then you’re probably too will welcome the launch of Unique’s first pre-fall and resort collections. Personally I tend to like capsule collections more than the mains and judging by what I’ve seen it looks quite promising in this case too. The pre-fall 2013 collection which include silky tailored pieces and accessories (with a Celine’ish feel) lands in stores and online today.

A girl right up my street, who’s certainly gifted with a lovely attitude, style and writing skills, blogger Leandra Medine aka The Man Repeller, has written her first book. I will for sure lay my hands on it and expect nothing less than hilarious content. The book ‘Seeking Love. Finding Overalls.’ can be pre-ordered on Amazon, release date 10′th of September.

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!

Yeah, latest news on Karl Lagerfeld, the man of many talents, who doesn’t seem to have much time for leisure, is that he will design a new range called ‘Karl’. The rock’n'roll-inspired line will include biker jackets, shirts and dresses in the range of £50-£390, in other words a more realistic price range for most of us than his usual designs, and you’ll find it exclusively on Net-a-Porter from January 25th. Go Karl!
