  • Fashion Week’s Autumn/Winter 2012 drama seems to be making some headway! After the “Fashion Gods” in Milan threatened to show at the same time as both New York and London, New York have now offered to pull their September 2012 dates back a week to accommodate the new Italian schedule.

    From there, Italy was said to have agreed to change their schedule to suit New York Fashion Week beginning on the second Thursday in September, going forward.

    For the apparent ‘final’ decision, the statement below has been released:

    Confirm the previous schedule for September 2012 with New York fashion week starting on Thursday 6 of September, followed by London, Milan and Paris Agree for the next two years ( September 2013 and September 2014) with the proposal of Diane Von Furstenberg, President of Council of Fashion Designers of America, to start New York Fashion Week on the second Thursday of September, that is to say on September 12th in 2013 and on September 11th in 2014.

    2.a New York’s last day should be on September 18th in 2013 and on September 17th in 2014 in order to allow London an additional day for the presentation of the menswear collections.

    2.b. Paris will accept this structure and follow Milan as always, starting on Wednesday 2nd of October in 2013 and on Wednesday 1st in 2014

    In case those conditions didn’t happen, the above mentioned solution could not be applied.

    Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana is looking forward to receiving a feedback(sic) from New York, London and Paris.

  • Today, AdWeek have released some very interesting statistics on shoplifting, ie. 1 in every 11 shoppers shoplift. (Really?!)

    Not only that, but 75% of shoplifters are said to be employed adults, and cost the U.S. $119 million dollars per year. Items that are often confused for a five-finger discount include alcohol, sneakers/trainers, women’s perfume, and – at the top of the list – filet mignon.

    This has to be a joke.

    Versace for H&M


    This week, the Versace x H&M lookbook was finally released. Thankfully, it did not disappoint in any way! The 50-piece collection features dresses, skirts, leggings, scarves, handbags, shoes, belts, menswear, jewelry, and even homeware. Impressively, many of the prints, products and palettes seem to have been drawn almost straight from the archives. Value for money, in my eyes!

    That said, it isn’t going to translate as ‘value‘ if we go out and buy everything at once (…note to self). Above, I have compiled some of my favourite pieces that I believe will work both alltogether and also add something special to many outfits when separated. Characteristic Versace: on the cheap (I can’t wait)!

    Clement Chabernaud
    Phew! Haven’t done a Behind The Camera for a while. I thought it was only fair, this time, to shine a little light on a dark corner of modelling: The Men’s Corner. While menswear seems to claw at the doors of high fashion, the models are enough reason to open said doors up. Case in point? 22-year-old French model Clement Chabernaud. All cheekbones, all man. His debut was at the Spring/Summer 2005 Dior Homme show in Paris, after which he gained ‘celebrity’ as the face of Jil Sander (who he has been walking for – opening and closing shows – ever since). This year, he also became the face of Prada and Salvatore Ferragamo.

    Go on, get lost in his eyes.

    Lily Allen Fashion Line
    Six months ago, Lily Allen and sister Sarah Owen opened a vintage shop to the name of “Lucy in Disguise” because ‘we love vintage and we’re not clothing designers‘. That didn’t last long. A stylish birdie has told us the duo are now launching an 18-piece RTW collection of vintage-inspired dresses with the assitance of LVMH menswear style director Nadia Jones.

    The collection will be released in June, in Harvey Nichols for the the UK, Shopbop for the US, and at Lucy at Disguise both in store and online. Take a look at some of their pre-release sketches below! View Post

    Dolce Gabbana Fall Winter 2011
    Warning: another Eighties erruption at Dolce & Gabbana, and it was a star-studded affair. Literally. Like last season, show attendees were greeted with giant screens broadcasting via the backstage commotion, with barely-there peaks at the collection of ingénue actuality. There was a certain ‘he wore/she wore’ air – whether present on an androgynous beauty in menswear or the angled haute-ies in their epicine best. Lush, mega-monopolizing garments in any light. See the top five looks below! View Post
