Got guts? If so, then you might appreciate this swimsuit from Australian label Black Milk Clothing, which boasts an anatomically correct print of human innards. The limited-edition run of 'Dem Guts' is now almost completely sold out (only XXS sizes are available to purchase, but maybe you have a badass 11-year-old sister?), proving that there's a real market for hilariously repulsive medical illustration fashion prints. And to be honest, if my size were still available for purchase, I would buy it in a heartbeat. (Sorry.) [h/t HuffPo]
Victoria Beckham has landed herself yet another cover of a magazine. This time, the English fashion designer and businesswoman fronts the 'Companies & Culture' issue of Business of Fashion. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan (who also shot Victoria's UK Vogue February 2011 cover), Victoria is seen wearing a smart black tailored jacket worn over her shoulders, for a very strong and business-minded look — perfect, given the magazine.
The magazine also features industry figures such as Vogue China's Angelica Cheung, UK Elle's Lorraine Candy, Rick Owens and a whole host of other established companies. A large part of Beckham's article can be read within the thread here.
Forum member Chanelcouture09 is a fan of the issue, writing, "The content is amazingly insightful, wonderfully written and although not a very thick issue, well worth the money, there is no advertising at all which makes it much more straight to the point and enjoyable."
You can purchase your copy of Business of Fashion (either a print copy or a PDF download) via its website.
Whether you are among the many that have found the Solange Knowles vs. Jay Z apparent Met Gala attack shocking or hilarious, one thing for sure is that you have watched the video and seen Solange hurling her Anya Hindmarch clutch bag at her sister Beyonce's husband.
Proving that there's no such thing as bad press, Anya Hindmarch has turned the buzz-worthy situation into a fantastic product advertisment:
The handbag designer has put an entertaining spin on the argument-gone-viral in a new press release calling the Crisp Packet Clutch "worth fighting for."
The Anya crisp bag design in gold, which retails for £995, was of course the one carried by Ms. Knowles on May 5, which ultimately doubled as a rather handy Jay- Z fighting device later that evening.
While there is obviously no fear of British stalwart brand Anya Hindmarch condoning the use of handbags in violence, you have to admire the brand's racy marketing opportunity, now that its delicious gold clutch is having its moment of tabloid limelight. Whether you think it's shameless or not, you have to admit it is a pretty funny response to the incident.
While Solange Knowles spent the hours following last week's Met Ball apparently beating the crap out of her brother-in-law, across town Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss were busy playing the best friend game to perfection.
“Taylor threw the best after-party ever,” Kloss told Page Six. “We were all playing pool in our ball gowns and just eating pizza and hanging out like you would at a high school after-party.”
Such youth! Pizza + ball gowns = very relatable.
After seeing snippets of the Philip Sparks Spring/Summer 2014 collection splashed across the company blog, I breathed a sigh of relief when finally Toronto Is Fashion alerted us to the full lineup. And boy is it a doozy!
Crisp whites, full skirts, box fit smocks ($295) and 50s deco silk shirt ($495) dresses make for a vintage vibe in the women’s portion of the collection, while a dark khaki trench ($595) looks to be a big seller thanks to its dramatic back pleat and a structured, well-tailored shape.
It’s all very mid-century-housewife-welcoming-the-weekend, but adding that extra je ne sais quoi, the S/S14 getup also introduces Philip Sparks’ debut optical collection in collaboration with Jordan Paul from the Junction eyewear store Opticianado.
The fun-time sunnies retail for around $295 (not too shabby considering the Made-in-Toronto label) and come in a range of colours. You can snap them up at Sparks’ Ossington location, as well as on the website, which also features this summer’s full range of clothing.
