Zac Posen for Target

Guess who the next designer for the Target Go International Collection will be? Vogue.co.uk announces that it’s Zac Posen.

Posen’s main signature is making very glamorous, feminine red carpet dresses, that are worn by celebrities like Natalie Portman, Beyoncé and Naomi Campbell. It will be interesting to see how this translates in his Target collection. His Ready-To-Wear collection for Spring 2010 had bright candy colours, a body hugging silhouette and geometric prints, so maybe this gives an indication about what to expect?

Posen’s Go International collection will be available at most Target stores and online at target.com from April 25 until May 30 2010.

Preview Primark Lingerie Collection Spring 2010

Primark is always great for buying stuff that looks great and costs (almost) nothing. Especially their lingerie department is always cheap and cheerfull. This spring the lingerie collection will be based upon four themes:

College Re-Union – a young and sporty collection, which focuses on cool cottons and adrogynous styling, think boxers and low-rise briefs, along with tongue-in-cheek slogans and sexy 70’s collegiate numbers.

Enchanted – the feminine, romantic range, it’s all nudes and pinks with lots of lace and ladylike styling.

Candy Shop – fun and playful, it draws inspiration from the 50’s with its ditzy florals and warm checks in soda pink, sherbert yellow, apple green and fresh mint.

Wayfarer – the sophisticated lot! Think nautical-inspired plains and stripes in red, white and blue.

Time to visit Rotterdam again!

New Online Magazine: Test

I found this brilliantly new website called Test. it’s like an online magazine, but does not only contain photographs but also beautiful little movies. Some info from their website: “Test is a visual platform that fuses a combination of new and established artists on a constantly changing series of image-led projects. Its name is derived from the concept of a “test shoot”, where creative teams are formed to show the best of their abilities. The continually evolving website collates some of the most exciting talents from fashion, art, film, design and music.”  

 The Art Director/founder of  Test is Jaime Perlman, who has also worked for British Vogue.

Shirley Manson for Oliver Peoples

This is one of the strangest things I found out recently: Shirley Manson is fronting an advertisement campaign for Oliver Peoples Eyewear. What’s strange about it is that I don’t think I have ever seen her wear glasses, and the other funny thing is that her co-star in the campaign is Elijah Wood…..yes, the hobbit from Lord of the Rings. It makes me wonder what happened at the advertisement agency when they came up with the idea for it…..they couldn’t have been sober? The campaign  pictures look good by the way:

 

 

 

The pictures are shot by photographer Autumn de Wilde. Both stills and short films will be part of the campaign that will debut in November, while the collection itself won’t be available until February 2010.

Dress Me Up

Topshop came with a great idea: for just 40 pounds, you can be the lucky lady to hire a dress that has been worn by your favorite celeb. Bad news is, you can’t keep it, you hire it for just one day.

Topshop’s new initiative, Dress Me Up, will allow shoppers to hire dresses owned by celebs like Kate Moss, Scarlett Johansson, Erin O’Connor, Noami Campbell and Dita von Teese. The dresses will then be auctioned, giving you the chance to own your favourite dress forever with all proceeds from hire fee and the auction going to Topshop’s chosen charities Age Concern and Help the Aged.

A peek at the dresses:

Roberto Cavalli dress from Julia Restoin Roitfeld.

Lanvin dress from Kate Moss.

Antik Batik dress from Kimberley Stewart

Jayson Brundson dress from Dita Von Teese.

Nanette Lepore dress from Scarlett Johansson.

Dolce & Gabbana dress from Peaches Geldof.

More info about how to rent the dress of your dreams, go to www.insideout.topshop.com.

Fun Jewellery by Toois.nl

Right now I´m in the middle of becoming a Visual Merchandiser for Swedens most famous fashion store. The training takes 3 months, and I’m being trained by Peter, and Tamara in Utrecht. A few weeks back Tamara came to work having the most wonderfull necklace around her neck (well where would you put a NECKlace anywhere besides your neck, as that’s where it’s made for right?).

Turned out the necklace she was rocking is from a brand that is her friends company: Toois.nl!

It’s a super cool brand, that even has exclusives (one of a kind, one piece ever produced items!).

They have adult jewerelly:

Sweet Jewellery

Retro Jewellery

Toys Jewellery

And Name Jewellery, where you can have your name necklace!

so go and check out www.toois.nl

Another Rebirth for Biba

Oh dear, this is I think the fourth time they try to bring Biba back to life. This time House of Fraser has bought the brand and it’s archives.

biba2

House of Fraser will introduce Biba to 30 department stores and online for autumn 2010. The collection will also include accessories, jewellery, footwear, homeware and fragrances. House of Fraser has stated that this time Biba would be “more accessible”.

The design team draws inspiration from Biba’s archives but updates the brand using modern technologies. “We will be making it a lot more appropriate for today and picking up an essence of Biba with flamboyant, sexy prints in silks, knits and dark denims with soft washes.”

There will be a Biba Blue range priced at £50 for denim and Biba Gold limited edition pieces priced at up to £200-plus.

I’m curious about the designs, unfortunately no preview yet. But it feels weird to see Biba continue without any involvement from the woman who started it all: Barbara Hulanicki (how about a second collection for Topshop?).
