Kate Middleton’s Go-To Brand Issa Names New Creative Director

Just in time for London Fashion Week, Issa has named a new creative director. The British fashion house is promoting Jamie O’Hare, who’s been serving as head of design since last fall. Previously, the designer, who holds a master’s degree in design from the Royal College of Art, racked up stints at Max Mara, Roberto Cavalli and Chloe, where he oversaw the See by Chloe line. His first collection for Issa will debut for Fall 2015 at London Fashion Week on February 22.

O’Hare replaces former Creative Director Blue Farrier, who was appointed in the spring of 2013. Before exiting in October, she was credited with Issa’s evolution from a brand known for fit and flare dresses favored by Pippa Middleton and Kate Middleton to one that offered a trendier bent that included a looser silhouette, wearable separates and new product categories like swimwear.

Issa originally began in 2003 under Brazilian-born and London-based designer Daniella Helayel. By 2005, celebrities and fashion editors alike were fawning over the label’s signature silk wrap dresses. But it wasn’t until Kate chose a long-sleeve, sapphire blue Issa dress for her official engagement announcement to Prince William in 2010 that the brand received global attention.

Rag & Bone Men’s Fall 2015 Collection Dances Its Way Into Our Hearts

Rag & Bone is doing something a little different for its men’s Fall 2015 collection, and the brand has tapped legendary ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and street dance darling Lil Buck for help. The label is presenting this season’s menswear options in a film (a favorite medium of the label), showing the clothes in motion as Baryshnikov and Buck dance (and sometimes play chess) in pieces from the collection.

If the Georgie Greville directed short proves anything, it’s that this line isn’t meant for sitting and looking pretty. From high kicks to popping and locking, the clothes move with the dancers, showing that they are about as functional as they are fashionable. In moody hues mostly ranging from shades of gray to black, we get parkas, bomber jackets, blazers, tuxedo-stripe trousers with a street flair and enough oversized turtleneck sweaters to shake a stick at. 

It’s definitely a creative and rather beautiful way to show the collection. Watch the video above.

Kim Kardashian is Naked AGAIN for Love Magazine — But Here’s What We Really Want to See

Had enough of seeing Kim Kardashian’s naked body? Katie Grand sure doesn’t care if you have. More photos from the reality star’s 30+ page spread in this forthcoming issue of Love magazine have surfaced and quite frankly, we almost wish they hadn’t. The latest photo leaked today shows Kim, (oiled up, naturally), wearing a pair of glasses, a fur coat and nothing else. Sounds about standard for a fashion shoot, right? Well, we don’t know about you, but we couldn’t handle any more shots showing Kim in her full glory in one week. So we did what anyone would do: We added puppies and kittens to the photo. 

KimFullFrontalPuppies

Judgy Cat says, “NOPE.”

Holy almost-labia, Batman! Even with our cute little friends, we’re dangerously close to seeing Kim K’s na-na, from an angle that might just be more pearl clutchingly uncomfortable than seeing her naked butt bent over. Wait. actually, we can’t decide which is more awkward. On the bright side, puppies and kitties! We’ll take comfort where we can get it in this wacky world. 

We’re all fashion lovers here. We understand that every once in a while there will be a little nudity in a fashion editorial – and we ain’t mad at it. Nudity can be chic and beautiful. But what did we ever do to deserve this? We get it: Kim is a cultural icon who likes to be naked and covered in baby oil. And we’re guessing that the folks at Love were kind enough to add adequate, uh, shading, to Kardashian’s ladyflower in this image (check out the original, you’ll see). But do we really need a Kanye’s-eye view of all her bits? Repeatedly?

Eh, we’re gonna go ahead and say no. But if you do want to see a slightly more NSFW version of the image, peep it here.

Opening Ceremony Combs Vivienne Westwood Archives for New Collaboration

Opening Ceremony is kicking it old school with Vivienne Westwood for a capsule collection inspired by her work from her Worlds End boutique. Humberto Leon and Carol Lim took a gander through Westwood’s “Clothes for Heroes” archives and picked out their favorite pieces, which they resurrected for the 20-piece collection.

The unisex range boasts slouchy trousers and draped tops, a remake of the sneakers from her 1983 runway show, that famous boob T-shirt and several other iconic pieces. Unisex collections seem to be trending these days; Nicola Formichetti’s unisex Nicopanda range recently hit shelves and Selfridges is reworking its stores to create an agender shopping experience next month. So, it seems Opening Ceremony is giving us a dose of nostalgia and a taste of what’s trending now with this latest collaboration.

The collection is set to drop February 9 online and at Opening Ceremony’s stores in Los Angeles and New York.
