Mollie King’s New Collaboration with Oasis

Mollie King of The Saturdays

It’s always exciting to guess which celebrity collaboration our favourite brands have in the pipeline, and British retailer Oasis certainly left us guessing about who they’d enlisted for their most recent venture. Upon finding out that it was Mollie King from the British Pop band the Saturdays, we couldn’t help but think that they’ve made one great choice.

With a much covetable fashion sense, Mollie is a style icon in the making, regularly attending exclusive fashion events. She herself has regularly referred to her style as classic vs. preppy, and she likes to switch between girlie and classic tailoring.

The collection is called Loved by Mollie and the star has pulled together outfits that she’d love to wear, which is the perfect helping hand for those of us who want to steal her style on a reasonable budget.

The collection features beautiful pastel knits, pretty prints and classic staples such as a trendy leather pencil skirt. The price point all hangs around the usual for Oasis: £40 and upwards with the option of an über splurge in the form of a striking £350 shearling and leather aviator jacket. It’s a hefty price tag for an Oasis item, but we suppose it is real leather and should theoretically last you longer than their other fast fashion pieces.

You can check out the full collection and an exclusive interview with Mollie over on the Oasis site.

Numéro Thailand Releases Shockingly Bad November Cover (Forum Buzz)

Numéro Thailand November 2013

The expansion of big fashion magazines into the Asian market has been welcomed by most. And while Numéro China has delivered some outstanding fashion stories, the Thailand edition seems to be struggling to meet the expectations of the fashion fanatics on the tFS forums. For its November issue, the magazine that debuted in December 2012 produced a cover that is shockingly bad. 

“What an awful cover!” posted fashionlover2001

“What a disaster,” found FashionFanatico.  

“A mess,” agreed jeffandtheworld, “the styling, the hair, the model.”

And valliaddict laughed, “Everyone behind this mess should be fired. Everyone!”

“This is so tragic!” commented Minimoon27.

Shot by Bigs Vatcharasith, the cover shows model Namthip Jongrachatawiboon posing lasciviously in a sexy dress, surrounded by an overwhelming amount of straw-like red hair. The idea was to emulate the theme of the issue, which is ‘Glamour.’ Does this actually represent anyone's idea of glamour? I doubt it.

Ashleigh Good Is Vogue Italia’s November Cover Girl (Forum Buzz)

After landing two consecutive Chanel campaigns (Fall 2013 and Cruise 2014) and covering recent issues of Numéro and Russh, model and Karl Lagerfeld muse Ashleigh Good has scored another coup: the November cover of Vogue Italia. The striking close-up of the newcomer from New Zealand, shot by Steven Meisel, made an impression on tFS forum members.

“Hands down my favorite VI cover for 2013! Love the model, love the styling & yeay for no Edie!” exclaimed  lanvinray, who was glad to see a new model on an Italian Vogue cover that isn’t Edie Campbell for a change (the British model sensation has appeared on an excessive three Vogue Italia covers this year so far).

KateTheGreatest agreed that this was “one of their best covers of this year, for sure.”

“Beautiful. A certain old-school Vogue Italia circa early 2000s flavor to it,” noted AL92 

Nepenthes swooned, “The cover is stunning! So looking forward to this issue!!!”

The concept of the cover story is described on Vogue Italia’s website as “Aristo-shabby. Sophistication, eccentricity, melancholy. An unusual mix, for a style that originates from an apparently casual assembly of contrasting elements.” Sounds promising? You bet.

Karen Walker Does the Bling Ring

Not every ring has to come with fireworks, roman candles, a 50-piece orchestra and a giant screen flashing the words “PLEEEASE MARRY ME!!!” As proof, we have Karen Walker’s latest jewelry collection, a range of hefty sparklers perfect for giving to you, from you.

The range of rings is titled ‘The Rock Garden’ and is an evolution from the popular ‘Botanicals’ story already in store. Bold hues lie at the heart of the collection, with three large colored stones in baguette, pear or square princess cuts. The stones are set alongside gold or sterling silver cast flowers. Pick your poison from one of five different colored gems: garnet, topaz, citrine, peridot or amethyst.

As with any Walker offering, there’s imagery worthy of printing out, blowing up and hanging on your wall. Her eyewear campaigns have enlisted the likes of vampires, babies, the elderly and aliens to model her wares, and this time cutesy bumble bees are doing a good job of making the covetable even more must-have.

While it’s still considered a bit weird to go buying yourself an engagement ring, Christmas is right around the corner. And there are definitely no rules against slipping rocks into your own stocking.   

The Rock Garden is now available online.

Simon Preen Creates Jessie J’s Official Tour Outfit

simon preen

It’s time to get yet another London-based designer on your fashion radar, as London College of Fashion Graduate Simon Preen is most definitely catching our eyes at the moment with his design signatures of stripes and minimal paneling.

Specializing in menswear whilst studying, the young designer was first snapped up by the retailing giant Urban Outfitters for whom he created a limited-edition womenswear collection. The range was available online and at their London flagship, and proved such a success that he went on to design further collections.

When celebs flock to wear your clothes, it’s also another reinforcement that you’re doing something right, and his design credentials have recently been further solidified, as he got commissioned by Jessie J to design her official tour outfit.

Jessie J is known for her statement-making costumes and fearless style (how many other stars can pull off a skintight jumpsuit so well?), so Simon Preen aimed to create a show-stopping piece that also stayed true to his design signatures. Opting for a bold striped jumpsuit with mesh inserts, he definitely created a piece that had Jessie J written all over it!

Keep a look out for Jessie J’s Alive tour coverage to see her official costumes at work.
