This is not a handbag

Trending for ss14: the intersection between art and fashion. Oh yes, I’m well up for this. Ok, art and fashion have always been rampant bedfellows, but from here on in, I think we’re going to see a lot more fash-art hook-ups. Sorry purists but art just got fashionable.

To whet our appetites, we’ve had the Dior-Warhol collab for Aw13 and the art-inspired collection from Prada for ss14. Not to mention Chanel’s art gallery-themed ss14 show and the Chanel Bond Street store that’s practically an art gallery in itself.

And hot on the heels of Paris Fashion Week we have… FRIEZE! Continue reading

Buy it now: Eudon Choi for River Island

2 River-Island-Eudon-Choi_AW13

The Eudon Choi for River Island shop is open! And aren’t the look book pictures fab?

The capsule collection is part of River Island’s Design Forum which gives emerging designers a platform to reach more consumers at an affordable price. Choi based his inspiration around Vogue photographer Peter Lindbergh’s 1991 Wild At Heart shoot, which famously featured the likes of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Tatjana Patitz as bad-ass bikers girls.

Eudon Choi’s tomboy-luxe aesthetic is all about boxy, anti-bodycon shapes in rich fabrics. The silver leather jacket (£250) is likely to sell out first, swiftly followed by the biker boots (£110). But the biker-detailed utility jacket (£150) and leather-panelled coat (£200) are probably your best bet for cost-per-wear versatility.

Shop the entire collection at Riverisland.com. Continue reading

Stella-Harrods-Handbag-Narratives

Just in time for Ramadan, Harrods has installed its summer accessory campaign, The Handbag Narratives, featuring a host of unique collabs with some of its biggest selling handbag brands.

Specially created bags from the likes of Burberry (a clever squashy number called the Crush), Fendi, Mulberry and Victoria Beckham have been commissioned in miniscule numbers (there are only four of Beckham’s duck-egg blue python Tote Minis), perfect for those with deep pockets and a love for super-luxury and exclusivity…

Louis Vuitton meets Eine and a Shoreditch street art tour

Eine-Louis-Vuitton-scarf

When I posted about the Eine X Louis Vuitton scarf a couple of weeks ago, it was really hard to find out any info. That’s because it hadn’t been launched yet. I’d seen a snippet in Red magazine and that was pretty much all. In fact, the scarf launches today, exclusively at Selfridges, Oxford Street for one week, sold in the new ground floor Louis Vuitton accessories pop-up. (Not to be confused with the pop-up on the second floor.) Continue reading

The Chinti And Parker Meets Patternity collection comprises ethically-produced  jersey separates, plus knit pants, dresses and sweaters in C & P’s signature cashmeres and Patternity’s geometric graphics.

Ben Eine X Louis Vuitton

Ben eine louis Vuitton

The art-fashion convergence continues to broker commercial collaborations. I quite like this one between Louis Vuitton and street artist Ben Eine. Eine has reimagined his signature typographic letters for Vuitton, arranging his colourful words on a silk square scarf. Although given the choice between knotting it round my neck and framing it, I think I’d prefer the latter.

I actually can’t find any info on this collab I’m afraid. Instead I found this very sweet video of Eine talking about his work a few months ago…

UPDATE: Ok I found some info. A lot of info!

Trainer mania: Liberty of London X NikeID and Comme des Garçons PLAY X Converse Pro Leather

Liberty-X-Nike-ID-ss13

Oh boy, I bet all those po-faced sportswear companies are sooooo glad they finally embraced the fashionisation of sportswear. Since they begrudgingly accepted that trainers and windcheaters have a place beyond the running track – ideally in the wildest and wackiest colour combos – there’s been no stopping them.
