We’re totally jazzed for the next Keanan Duffty for Target collection for men. Target tends to overlook the guys when it comes to their designer collaborations (not that we didn’t buy some Libertine anyway!), but this collection more than makes up for it.
Inspired by rock icon David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust period, the collection includes jeans with lightning bolts on the pockets, close-cropped vests and a black trenchcoat. So right for fall.
Debuts in October in select Target stores.
The Noguchi Museum in Queens is presenting “Design: Isamu Kenmochi and Isamu Noguchi,” detailing the work of Japan’s two most celebrated modern designers. Included in the exhibit is a reproduction of the Basket Chair they collaborated on.
H&M has announced that Roberto Cavalli will be their latest partner in their ongoing designer collaborations. The line will consist of 20 menswear designs and 25 womenswear pieces, including lingerie and accessories. The collection is expected in store by November 8th.
“I love fashion very much. Fashion is in my DNA. That is the reason the collaboration between H&M and Cavalli makes me excited. I try now for H&M to make pieces that are more Cavalli fantasy that you can’t recognize from any other pieces in the world, and that is it; so every girl can have Cavalli. We create for H&M one collection, is not big for sure. Not many pieces but every piece is style.”
H&M just announced that third quarter profits are up 31% and will open 95 new stores by the end of the year.
Italian designer Gianfranco Ferré passed away this weekend after suffering a massive brain hemmorhage in Milan.
Born in 1944, Ferré started out in 1970 as a jewelry and accessories designer after earning a degree in architecture. His first foray into fashion design came with a successful line of raincoats before being tapped by LVMH to helm Christian Dior, a position he held through 1996.
Ferré had just signed Julia Roberts and rock star Skin to star in a new ad campaign.
We fashiony-folk love our irony, don’t we? We love a vintage t-shirt for a band we never listen to, wearing riding boots even though we would scream at the sight of a horse, allotting more living space for our wardrobes than our bodies.
So of course we are in a twist waiting for the June 20th arrival of Anya Hindmarch’s cheeky canvas tote, I’m Not a Plastic Bag. Designed as an alternative to (duh) a plastic bag, Hindmarch has marketed it across the world as the environmentally responsible alternative for your market shopping. And when its no longer cool, you can stash it under the sink and fill it with plastic bags.
