Kate Moss David Bowie Vogue

  • 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.”

  • 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

  • Burberry Spring Summer 2011 Campaign
    Mario Testino took a break from snapping Prince William and Kate Middleton to lens the latest Spring/Summer 2011 campaign from Burberry, featuring British beauties Sophie Kennedy-Clark and Matthew Beard.

    “We wanted to create a dynamic campaign that reflects the diversity of our broad global consumer, revealing new British cast members each month, all with their own identity, embodying the different attitudes of the Burberry guy and girl. We shot the campaign on Brighton Beach to celebrate the great British outdoors and our history of supporting emerging talent and to bring to life the emotion behind protection from the elements.”
    Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative Officer

    Rodarte Karlie Kloss RunwayLVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) is reportedly interested in adding American label Rodarte to its illustrious portfolio of luxury brands.

    CEO to LVMH, Monsieur Pierre-Yves Roussel, sat front-row last season, and said he “loved what they do.” Buying Rodarte would be an unusual move for the conglomerate company, which generally favors old, established brands over emerging talent. Rodarte, however, is definitely both loved luxurious enough.
