American Express is keen on making Small Business Saturday a thing, and this weekend, the credit card giant hosted a shopping extravaganza in NYC’s NoLita/SoHo district to help support shops and restaurants owned by regular Joes – and not huge corporate conglomerates. The event drew quite a notable crowd: Coco Rocha, Hilary Rhoda, Hannah Bronfman and Marine the Dog all showed up to support the affair. From 7 p.m. to midnight, guests shopped at participating retail locations, took in performances, dined and sipped cocktails in support of the little guys, those businesses that don’t come with an IPO.
The limited-edition capsule collection from MSGM and Yoox is finally here. The holiday lineup celebrates the retailers “Dinner Party in Venice” theme with Italian-inspired prints in the brand’s signature vibrant hues, zeroing in on blue and yellow. The capsule includes a dress, T-shirt, sweatshirt and jacket along with slip-ons and ballet flats—all ranging from $86 to $202.
The MSGM collaboration is one piece of Yoox’s winter shopping experience under the “Dinner Party in Venice” umbrella. The website is featuring weekly themed videos with notables like Lynn Yaeger, stylist Tina Leung, Arrigo Cipriani and Italian actress Alessandra Mastronardi among others.
Customers can also peruse a curated assortment of Venezia-style holiday gifts including two Vanini Murano glass vases, vintage accessories, jewelry, prints from Magnum Photos and Fruilana slippers as well as customized designer aprons from Missoni, Vivienne Westwood, Emilio Pucci, Toilet Paper and Fornasetti. All proceeds from these aprons will benefit the non-profit organization Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity.

Reese Witherspoon fronts the January cover of U.K. Harper’s Bazaar, oozing Old Hollywood glamour with a modern twist. Photographed for a close-up profile cover image with her blond tresses styled to one side, a gorgeous and effortless makeup look applied to her charming face, she looks radiant and fresh for the new year.
The minute the cover surfaced on our forums, members began to weigh in. “That’s fast! I didn’t expect her to get any UK mags. Reminds me very much of her US Vogue story, zoomed in. This is a very good start,” commented Benn98.
“She is a Beauty. I like the cover a lot,” complimented a satisfied fashionlover2001.
Miss Dalloway was clearly an admirer and wrote, “Really beautiful January cover, she looks stunning.”
Also on board was GIVENCHYlover, who proclaimed, “OMG stunning cover, love the hair!”
But not everyone was as content. “What a post-production! I can’t recognize her on this cover,” slammed narcyza.
“Same old same old… from her and the mag,” added an underwhelmed kokobombon.

The rumor mill strikes again. Johnny Coca, the head design director for leather goods, accessories, shoes and jewelry for Celine since 2010, has been tapped as Mulberry’s new creative director. Coca succeeds Emma Hill, who turned in her papers approximately 17 months ago.
Whispers pinning the designer as the front-runner on Mulberry’s short list began as far back as the beginning of October. That list included names from Erdem to former Chloe Creative Director Hannah MacGibbon, Roland Mouret and former Issa Creative Director Blue Farrier.
Coca will report to Chairman and CEO Godfrey Davis, and his duties will include accessories, ready-to-wear and windows. He begins his new post July 8, 2015.
We’re big fans on polo, mostly because of the chic and relaxed style it brings out in people. Waterford Crystal’s Polo in the City at Melbourne’s Albert Park on November 29 was no exception, with ladies stepping out in pretty-as-a-picnic attire like femine laces and straw boater hats.

Polo is the best time for a cutesy twin set, with basketballer Elizabeth Cambage opting for Zimmermann’s embroidered crop and midi skirt. She made it daytime-appropriate with nude sandals, and a neutral wide-brim hat by Lack of Color. (more…)
