  • For the January 2012 issue of Vogue Paris…we have David Bowie! Or, Kate Moss‘ interpretation of Ziggy Stardust under the lens of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. What a way to bring in the new year.

    (Disclaimer: the gorgeous photo, below, came to mind as soon as I laid eyes on the Vogue cover! A mashup.)

  • The new H&M collaboration has been announced (yes, they knock them out like scrambled eggs), and the next designer is…Marni! Sweden’s most successful retailer announced their Spring/Summer 2012 partnership with Italian label’s founder Consuelo Castiglioni, set to be released on March 8th in over 260 stores worldwide.

    And yes, there is already a video sneak peak for you, below. HELLO, CLASHING PRINT MENSWEAR, I LOVE YOU.

    “I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favourite pieces in signature fabrics and prints. As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colours, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic and adding sporty utilitarian elements.”
    Consuelo Castiglioni


  • Today, the white dress which Amy Winehouse wore on the European cover of her second album, Back to Black, raised over $67,000 (£43,200) when it was sold at auction. The dress was ‘won’ by a private fashion museum in Chile, who’s money will go to Amy’s charitable foundation which supports programs to help vulnerable young people.

  • Ever wondered which designers are searched the more than others online? Well, according to Bing’s annual search trends for 2011, Gucci tops the list. (Perhaps Kreayshawn is to blame?)

    Other top ten brands included John Galliano (legal troubles), J.Crew (lesbian/divorce), Guess(?), and Chanel twice over — once for the brand name itself (because it’s fabulous) and once for founder Coco Chanel (because she’s fabulous).

  • Big news for fashionistas in the Netherlands (and beyond)! Condé Nast has confirmed that Vogue will begin publishing a Netherlands edition in 2012, and it to be edited by the recently resigned editor of Dutch Glamour, Karin Swerink.

    “Holland is a thriving market in the heart of Western Europe with a growing hunger for luxury. It is natural for Vogue.”
    Jonathan Newhouse, Condé Nast International’s chairman

  • Amy Winehouse Candid in Camden with Lela LondonPlease excuse the idiot face and Olsen-smile, I was with a goddess of sorts. That’s correct – today I spent a couple of minutes with Amy Winehouse.

    Traipsing along the back roads of Camden, Winehouse was dressed in a black wifebeater, denim cutoffs, oodles of gold jewelry (including a gold Star of David) and a very exposed pink bra. I report she was sadly not seeming ‘at her best’ as the few fans that spotted her seemed to really catch her off guard, but she was a pleasure to talk to nonetheless.

    In a brief chat (with a blonde female acquaintance nearby but silent), she revealed that she was definitely releasing a new album ‘in five months from today’, gave me directions to her house, and talked about ‘starting fresh in the area’.

    She may not be especially coherent but she is unbelievably talented and with rumours that Lady Gaga may be helping with her album…well…you know I’ll be a pre-ordering fool.
