Celebrate Movember with Holt Renfrew x Paul Smith Mittens

HOLT RENFREW - Paul Smith mittens for Movember

Just recently, Hudson’s Bay announced its new 2014 Olympic Collection mittens, a cozy pair of bright red finger warmers that you’d typically expect to be emblazoned with maple leafs. But not wanting to be left in the cold this winter, Holt Renfrew has now also unveiled an exclusive mitten collaboration in aid of Movember.

British designer Sir Paul Smith, known for his bright colours and quirky stripes, has designed a pair of limited-edition mittens uniquely for this partnership, which are available only in Canada and only at Holt Renfrew. Every pair of the mittens purchased will help support the men's health programs run by Movember, that is to promote prostate cancer awareness and male mental health initiatives in the area of education, awareness, research and survivorship.

The mittens will be available in two sizes and three designs inspired by the iconic Paul Smith stripes. They’re being priced at $50 and purchases of the cozy knits will help Holt Renfrew reach its goal of raising $100,000 for Movember.

"I'm famous for my stripes and so, it seemed like the perfect route to go down in terms of the design for these great mittens. We hope that you find them fun and cheerful and help to raise awareness and money for Movember, a very worthy cause," says Sir Paul in a press release about the playful and practical accessory.

The Paul Smith mittens can be reserved for purchase through now and will be available at Holt Renfrew and hr2 stores on Tuesday, October 15. I’m not sure for how long they’ll be available, however, not only do they make a great holiday pressie for the moustached male in your life, but they’re also in aid of a good cause! A win all around as far as I’m concerned, but here’s hoping we ladies get an equally stylish collaboration in aid of Armpits4August. It’s a thing.

Kim Kardashian is getting progressively blonder, according to new paparazzi photos. Last week, images of her recently-bleached hair galloped across the Internet faster than you can say Nicolas-Ghesquière-confirmed-for-Louis-Vuitton. The response was largely positive, which maybe explains why the reality television performer appeared in public yesterday (using the word "public" loosely here — Kardashian was taking her child to the doctor, hardly a red carpet occasion) looking extra blonde. Why did Kim Kardashian decide to go blonder than she's ever been blonde before? How can you possibly still be reading this? How can I possibly still be writing this? goodnight

Whistles to Launch Spring 2014 Menswear Range

There’s no denying that Whistles is embarking upon quite the expansion plan this year, as we’ve already seen the brand break into the massive retail markets of China and Hong Kong for the first time last June. Now, we’re delighted to hear the news that they are also set to launch a menswear range. They’ve solidified their womenswear design credentials, so now it’s time to fight for a share of the menswear market.


Apparently, Whistles has always intended to venture into menswear ever since they started back in 2008. The range will launch in time for Spring 2014, and a design team has already been established under the supervision of design director Nick Passmore.

Last week, the Singapore-based men's fashion outlet, Men's Folio, wrote a post claiming that Nicolas Ghesquière's rumored position at Louis Vuitton had been confirmed. Today, the item was picked up by the Luxury Society, an influential network for luxury business news, further stoking speculation that Marc Jacobs' successor at the LVMH brand had been anointed. The story tore across Twitter and various fashion news websites where it was, in the manner of the Internet, treated as fact. That is, until Financial Times correspondent Elizabeth Paton Tweeted word that luxury conglomerate LVMH had refused to confirm the appointment, telling the UK paper, "No official decision has been made."

“We tried to keep this unpleasant event secret until the end of the exhibition, but it’s leaking out."

Sad news for all emerging hat historians and future millinery maestros: An item has been stolen from "Hat-ology," exhibition in Milan of Anna Piaggi's legendary collection of hats. The stiletto show hat was designed by Bill Cunningham, the pioneering street style photographer who famously got his start designing inventive, over-the-top hats. WWD reported the news after speaking with the recently departed Italian style writer's nephew, Stefano Piaggi, quoted above.

But despite its new stiletto hat-shaped void, the show will go on. Curated by the milliner Stephen Jones, the exhibition will be on display at Milan's Palazzo Morando through November 30.
