British “it” brand Whistles is teaming up with jewelry designer Madeleine Moxham for a limited edition capsule collection due out October 26. The range stays true to Moxham’s aesthetic — utilitarian details and hardware-like flourishes, all in a monochrome palette. The collection has the kind of products that you can truly figure out a way to wear with anything.

Leather straps, metal rivets and geometric shapes are the name of the game for this offering. You’ll find leather and cut steel bracelets, headbands with leather straps as well as necklaces with detachable pendants hanging from trigger hooks. If you’re looking for something even simpler, sleek collar necklaces in either black or white with a ribbon tie may tickle your fancy. 

Lucky U.K. residents will be able to shop the collection starting Sunday, though the collection will also be available through the Whistles website. Prices start at £35 ($56 USD) for a leather clip and peak at £95 ($152 USD) for a necklace.

Take a look at the full collection below. (more…)

WWD Is Hiring a Ton of New Staff

In late August, the fashion industry was rocked by the announcement that Condé Nast was selling Fairchild Fashion Media, the company that puts out Women’s Wear Daily and Footwear News, to Penske Media Corporation. It appeared that Penske was trying to make a name for itself as the leader in trade publications — it also owns Variety, making WWD a great addition to the company’s roster. Plus, Fairchild was selling for $500 million less than what Condé Nast bought it for back in 1999 — a great deal for the folks at Penske.

As with any major change in management, Fairchild is about to go through staff and logistical shakeups. Racked reported that Penske is encouraging the paper to be a little more critical in its coverage and now it looks like the publication is scouting a ton of new staffers to fit that model. In today’s issue of WWD, there is a full page ad from Fairchild announcing that it is hiring for several staff positions — 37 to be exact. 


“We’re hiring,” it reads at the top of the ad in bold white lettering against a black background, adding, “Yes, you read this correctly,” just in case you didn’t believe the paper the first time. 

WWD is looking for a deputy fashion editor, reporters in both New York and Los Angeles, a Europe editor for Footwear News, a social media director and several other positions. We’re not sure if this means there will be some people at WWD and Footwear News who should watch their backs, but the assumption is for a mass hiring like this one, there may be some people let go.

Anyway, if you’re looking to work at WWD, now’s the time to send in your resume.

Flashback: Vogue Paris December 2003/January 2004 with Catherine Deneuve by Mario Testino

As Catherine Deneuve celebrates her 71st birthday this week, we take a look back at the actress on the cover of Vogue Paris for this edition of Fashion Flashback. Carine Roitfeld tapped Deneuve to guest edit the magazine’s December 2003/January 2004 issue and enlisted Mario Testino to shoot the French icon for the front cover, wearing a Lanvin trench. The cover shot has a red filter layered over it which resembles Deneuve’s cover for the magazine back in 1962.

Flashback Vogue Paris Dec 03/Jan 04 Catherine Deneuve


Since the star of Belle De Jour edited the festive issue of Vogue Paris, we are treated to a mountain of material regarding the actress’ private and showbiz life. We even get a peek inside Catherine’s refrigerator! Testino and Mario Sorrenti both contribute to the issue with their stories featuring the then 60-year-old blonde beauty (looking as fabulous as ever in Testino’s cover story).

Yet even with a cover subject like Catherine Deneuve, we still get some stunning fashion stories inside the 314-page issue. Craig McDean and Roitfeld team up for a story shot in a rocky location with a brunette model wearing long dresses and military-inspired pieces, teamed with a Mickey Mouse T-shirt used as a headpiece in a few of the shots (classic Carine!). Isabeli Fontana is captured in the studio by Terry Tsiolis with Emmanuelle Alt on styling duties, for a classic sitting with Fontana donning monochrome outfits and a fabulous blowout. Towards the end of the issue, Anastasia Barbieri styles Diana Dondoe wearing black evening dresses, dripping in diamonds and posing cliffside on the sea front.

Check out the thread to familiarize yourself with the contents of this back issue here.

Allure Russia Puts Too Much Makeup on Maryna Linchuk’s Flawless Face (Forum Buzz)

Beauty magazines are receiving a bashing this month with U.S. Allure doing a disservice to Kerry Washington on its November cover and now Allure Russia has done the same with Maryna Linchuk. Why? Magazines today have access to some of the best in the business and can select the most flawless models available. Maryna stars on Russian Allure‘s November cover, shot by Nicolas Moore, with hair tended to by Brian Buenaventura and makeup applied by Romy Soleimani.

The cover isn’t sitting well with a couple of our forum members. “*Sigh* Back to the bionic covers again. This would’ve been OK if Maryna closed her mouth. I find teeth on a cover so unattractive,” disapproved Benn98.

“It’s too crowded, there’s too much makeup and the hair doesn’t help unfortunately,” proclaimed an underwhelmed Valentine27.

Also noticing the amount of unnecessary makeup was kokobombon: “Hate the heavy makeup but at least [it] is not a super closeup…”

KateTheGreatest shared the same sentiment and posted, “Gorgeous. Just wish the makeup wasn’t so heavy.”

A few members of our forums are in favor of the cover image, though, with MON writing, “It’s actually one of the few covers I like from them. Finally it’s not too zoomed in.”

“Maryna looks SPECTACULAR!” raved Zorka, clearly a fan of Allure‘s latest installment.

GIVENCHYlover agreed by simply stating, “She’s gorgeous.”

See inside the thread for Maryna’s cover story and share your own opinion here.
