There’s a good reason why we love fashion bloggers, and for the most part, it’s because their personal take on fashion trends delivers our much-needed style inspiration. For Caslazur’s cartel edit, a collaborative platform where founder, Cassie Snelgar, handpicks international style influencers to interpret new season looks, the fashion label has tapped fashion blogger Margaret Zhang of Shine By Three.
In a surprising move with today’s retail climate, Aussie brand Camilla and Marc is opening up a new brick-and-mortar shop at The Intersection in Paddington, Sydney. The shop is 100 percent dedicated to the label’s second, more youthful line, C&M, which is something we don’t see often from either local or international brands.
The store will be sophisticated and monochromatic just like C&M’s branding, with an all-white interior and exterior. It will have modern black accents like nickel-dipped rails, hanging mannequins and a bespoke iron chair. If it’s going to be anything like Camilla and Marc’s existing Paddington boutique just five minutes down the road, we’re in for a real retail treat.
The store will launch Saturday, August 9, opening up with C&M’s new Spring 2014 collection. The range comprises classic structure juxtaposed with relaxed, sport luxe, creating a preppy-chic yet laid-back feel. If you want to get a sneak peek of what styles you can actually try on come Saturday, head over to C&M’s online store.
Alice Temperley has teamed up with Net-a-Porter to create a fashion film that takes you into the heart of her magical world. Whilst her Somerset home setting and beautifully crafted designs are familiar, this fashion film has a new and exciting twist — you can buy everything directly from the video.
Launching today, the film was directed by Alice and shot by her filmmaker brother, Henry Temperley. It presents a real fairy tale of fashion as models explore and prance around before heading to one of the designer’s infamous summer parties. Laura Bailey, Caroline Issa and Jade Parfitt are among the women modeling the sequined, embroidered masterpieces from Temperley London’s ready-to-wear and bridal collections along with three key exclusive pieces made for the luxury shopping site.

If you’ve not heard of model Lilah Parsons, then we’re pretty sure that you’ll discover her soon enough. From gracing designer runways at the likes of Vivienne Westwood to teaming up with Very to front a recent festival campaign, she’s continuously scoring one cool job after another.
It has just been announced that Lilah will be fronting Yumi’s Fall 2014 campaign, which is set to launch this month. The campaign images were first released on social networks, featuring gorgeous, simple separates effortlessly styled with a quirky, East London feel.

If there’s one thing to say about Canadian fashion brands, it’s that the labels certainly keep things in the family. Joe Fresh and Pink Tartan are two of the biggest companies in the country, respectively owned by husband and wife team Joe Mimran and Kimberley Newport-Mimran. Also joining the doubles act is Lululemon founder Chip Wilson and his wife Shannon.
Lately, Lululemon has been portrayed in a less-than-favourable light, but Shannon is hoping to start afresh with her own brand, the Vancouver-based Kit and Ace, which shills something she likes to call “technical cashmere.” Just like Lululemon, it’s equally rich on price with T-shirts for men and women priced anywhere between $68 and $98 (the men’s cotton options are around $84). But what makes these basics so special is the special blend of 81 percent viscose (aka rayon), 10 percent elastane and nine percent cashmere.
