Julia Restoin Roitfeld is putting her own special touch on the children’s book Pat the Bunny for the tome’s 75th anniversary. Roitfeld has designed a limited-edition range with Bonpoint, aden + anais and Charlotte Olympia, in conjunction with her lifestyle blog Romy & The Bunnies.
Roitfeld has created a 14-piece range for moms and babies that includes shoes, swaddlers, sweaters, rompers and more. The pieces are, of course, decorated with Pat the Bunny imagery and illustrations, our favorite piece being the bunny-shaped sandals.
The collection is set to hit stores March 21 and will be available at Harrods, Bonpoint, aden + anais and Charlotte Olympia. Check out a few pieces from the collection below and try not to explode from the cuteness. (more…)
For the fashion aficionados amongst us, it’s hard to imagine wearing an item that is clearly labelled as fake, but that’s exactly the trend that Stella McCartney was trying to set at Paris Fashion Week this morning. It’s all for the greater good, of course, and rather than supporting some kind of counterfeit trade, the designer is promoting the use of fake fur. As her Fall 2015 collection hit the runway at the Opéra National in Paris, the vegetarian ensured that her shaggy faux fur coats featured a clearly visible label reading “Fur-Free Fur” on the outside of the neck or sleeves.
We saw plenty of fur on the runways and on many an editor this season. The trend is so prevalent, in fact, that Karl Lagerfeld is launching a fur-only show for Fendi called Haute Fourrure. McCartney, who never uses fur or leather in her collections, is proving to both the industry and consumers that you don’t have to wear real fur to be fashionable. Her collection is, of course, made entirely from synthetically-made fur, making this one of the few PETA-approved shows.
Let’s hope that her openly fake fur trend sets a precedent within the fashion industry, and other designers soon follow suit by solely working with synthetic furs.
Today, in addition to a few other impressive updates to the Apple family – like the new gold MacBook – the tech giant unveiled more about the much-anticipated Apple Watch. Since first teasing it back in September, Apple seems to have been on a tour trying to beef up the watch’s street cred, particularly amongst the fashion set. After all, it may be a tech item, but the Apple Watch is still an accessory that has to be stylish.
Apple also revealed that it’s chosen Christy Turlington to help promote the watch’s advanced fitness features. The supermodel actually used the watch to run a half marathon (a first for Apple) to benefit her Every Mother Counts organization and will continue to push the new tech item in a weekly blog that will focus on her preparation for the Virgin Money London Marathon. Of course, Turlington will be running the race with an Apple Watch around her wrist .
Pre-orders for the device start April 10. On that date, Apple will also make a few samples available in stores so that customers can try out the three watch collections. The Apple Sport options are priced between $349 and $399, the Apple Watch version ranges from $549 to $1,099, and the big kahuna, the 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition starts at $10,000.
You’ll be able to get your hands (or wrist) on the device when it hits stores April 24 in the U.S., U.K., China, Japan, France, Canada, Germany, Australia and Hong Kong.
Rihanna has to be the easiest celebrity in the world to work with. She swam with sharks for Harper’s Bazaar‘s March cover shoot, went topless for Lui and adapts to any creative input that’s required once on set. This time around, the songstress turns heads on the Chinese edition of Harper’s Bazaar. Photographed by Chen Man, Rihanna sports a creation from Raf Simons‘ Spring 2015 Haute Couture collection for Christian Dior. Throw in some killer eyebrows, a captivating smoky eye teamed with a red lip and you have yourself a fabulous cover.
It should come as no surprise that our forum members are head over heels. “She is such a damn good model, someone said earlier that Rihanna needed to be more exclusive and stop appearing in so many random international magazines but I love it. This cover is beautiful!” complimented marsnoop2.
“She is such a great damn model I agree!!! She always looks so versatile and had she been [taller] she could have made a great couture/runway model because she has a great body and great face and knows how to transform herself on every single shoot. This is the Rihanna I love, when she looks very glamorous and high fashion, GORGEOUS!” raved Bertrando3.
Also showing the cover some love was simon: “Quite like it. I agree that she models well.”
Forum member tigerrouge was also full of enthusiasm. “I hope she doesn’t stop appearing in random magazines, because the results are better than a lot of models currently doing the rounds of the covers,” she shared.
“Jesus, this is breathtaking!! She does need to stop, but I’ll let this cover pass. I’m really loving the fresh direction which the Chinese Bazaar and Vogue are taking,” Benn98 added.

Kanye West‘s Paris Fashion Week is already far better than the couple’s last turn in the fashion capital for the Spring 2015 collections. Between hitting up shows and posing for photos with his wife and her new platinum ‘do (which will be featured in a yet-unnamed campaign), Kanye also booked a gig at the Fondation Louis Vuitton this weekend for a charity concert.
The affair was very artsy and very Ye. The rapper reportedly requested that the security guards at the show refrain from blocking the screens around the stage so that the audience could get the full experience of the show. But possibly our favorite highlight has to be Yeezy’s little dance number, which still has us scratching our heads. Mostly because we’re not sure which song he’s dancing to exactly:
Kanye West: Truly a man who marches to the beat of his own drum. Whether we can hear those drums or not.
