Sonia Rykiel for H&M

Yep, another designer collaboration. This time H&M has contacted Sonia Rykiel to create a lingerie- and a knitwear collection. The lingerie will be at selected H&M-stores from the 5th of December 2009. The lingerie will also be for sale at the Sonia Rykiel boutiques. The knitwear will be available in H&M stores from the 20th of February 2010.

Sonia Rykiel’s singular fashion story began at a revolutionary time in France: the extraordinary spring of May 1968. Since the opening of her first boutique on the rue de Grenelle in that time of social upheaval, Rykiel has become an ambassadress of a very Parisian, deeply Saint Germain style, with its hallmarks of individuality, modernity and a certain impertinence that the designer calls “la démode” (“unfashion”). Rykiel signatures include inside-out stitching, a preponderance of black, lace, strass, colourful stripes and, of course, the knit pullovers that have become synonymous with the brand.

Well, what to expect? H&M hasn’t published preview yet, but I guess it will look like her latest collections:

I Love Your Style

New fashion book alert! I love fashion books that are a mixture of different styles and ideas (mixing designer with high street and new with vintage), and use different sources for inspiration. I think I found one of these books: it’s called “I Love Your Style” and written by Amanda Brooks.

About the book she has said; “I wanted it to be very commercial. I wanted it to be a manual. I wanted it to be soft cover at a very accessible price point. I always knew that I wanted to sell it in Urban Outfitters and Anthropology and not just Barneys or Bergdorf’s book department. I didn’t want it to be a precious book—I have so many beautiful coffee table books and I can’t say that I ever read.”

I’ve ordered my copy, can’t wait to read it!

Tim Burton by Tim Walker

The October issue of Harper’s Bazaar has a great fashion spread, influenced by Tim Burton. Tim Burton has made some of my favorite movies (like Edward Scissorhands and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and also worked as a music video director for bands like The Cure and The Killers. This fashion shoot has his name written all over:  the dark, gothic atmosphere, Victorian clothing and a skeleton here and there – oh, and he also appears in some shots. If you want to know more about him, the Museum of Modern Art in New York has an exhibition of his work as a filmmaker, writer, photographer and illustrator. And check out his next project: the Alice in Wonderland movie!

Living in a Material World

While looking for the latest edition of Lula magazine (no, it’s not for sale in the Netherlands yet), we found a very simular glossy magazine: meet “Material Girl”, the Austrian sister of Lula. Material Girl is  a fashion/beauty /jewellery magazine that is published four times a year and their 7th issue (Fall 2009) is out now.

Check out their pretty photography:

Jean Paul Gaultier for Target

According to several websites, Jean Paul Gaultier will be the new designer for Target’s Designer Collaboration line. Gaultier’s people declined to comment, though Target’s people said, “We don’t have anything to share other than we admire his work and incredible design aesthetic.” So it’s still a bit of a mystery if the collaboration will happen or not.

 I think it’s a good idea to introduce Jean Paul Gaultier, who made his most trademark designs in the eighties (corsets, Breton stripes, men’s skirts and Madonna’s cone bra), to a younger audience. For some indication about what to expect, check out his recent collections:
