Media Giant Condé Nast Expands with a New Line of High-End Frozen Meals

Which prestigious print publisher is moving into the glamorous, high stakes world of prepackaged frozen food? Media giant Condé Nast is diversifying and expanding its product line to include frozen meals. High-end frozen meals (naturally). 

Health and wellness publication Self, a Condé property, is launching a frozen food line called Self Healthy Kitchen. “A lot of women reading our magazine are working late and come home hungry, and I wanted to have a healthy option in the freezer,” the publication's editor in chief, Lucy Danziger, told AdWeek

Although frozen food is a first for Condé Nast, the publisher is entering a growing market: according to a trade report issued last September, the frozen food market is projected to grow to $293.75 billion globally by 2019, up from $224.74 billion in 2012.

The Self Healthy Kitchen line is rolling out to grocery stores in 37 states and for $4.99, which is a little above the market price. 

"$5 each = no way," said one commenter on Self's Facebook page

Danziger explains that the price was set to reflect the products' quality and value: "I think that the difference between what we’re trying to do and what other people are trying to do is that we’re sourcing the best ingredients we can find anywhere. We spared no expense, so the fact that it’s a little more expensive, I think that translates to the taste.”

The UK version of Bazaar has become one of those magazines I look forward to each month. Editor-in-Chief Justine Picardie has injected an identity which isn't like any other available on the market. They tend to steer towards a vintage feel for their magazine, while most other publications are emulating each other. British Bazaar is like a breath of fresh air!

Check out the thread and take a look at the subscription cover. TheFashionSpot member justaguy commented, "Wow, I'm speechless, this is very cool! Retro done right!" It's definitely a winner!

J.W. Anderson’s Final Collection for Sunspel

Want to get your hands on J.W Anderson for less than £400? Go quickly to Sunspel.com to stock up on the coveted designer’s final collection for the British design house. Northern Irish designer John Anderson is parting ways with the brand after collaborating with it since 2011 and consulting since 2008.

You can’t really blame him for needing to scale down the commitments a little having been shot into the fashion stratosphere since the launch of his menswear label in 2007 and womenswear in 2008. The more recent accomplishment of investment from LVMH last September has brought new attention to his brand, not to mention the fact that he will be taking the reigns at Spanish label Loewe as its creative director. It makes us tired just listing all of his jobs.

Ying and Yang cashmere intarsia sweater; £350, contrast panel dress; £125, pleated vest layer skirt; £275 all available at Sunspel

Speaking to Vogue today, John seems to have taken a great deal of inspiration from the 154-year-old brand: "Working with Sunspel really taught me how to create basics of the highest quality and this collection is a take on classics — and using the classic elements of a wardrobe and rehashing them into something new. I followed the same organic process of experimenting on the body and cutting up and patching shapes and textures together."

This education has certainly paid off with this final offering, with signature knife pleat midi skirts and baby soft intarsia cashmere knits, alongside contrast panel dresses in jersey and cellular mesh with raw hems. Each piece is handmade in England with prices ranging from £85 – £350, which is a joy to the bank balance as well as the wardrobe.

This shift in Anderson’s partnerships signifies the dynamic shift that his brand has taken with only bigger things to come, although he told Vogue the next thing he is looking forward to is a holiday, which sounds fair enough.

Kate Moss’ Naked Butt Appears on the Cover of Lui Magazine, Photographed by Terry Richardson

Just spotted: The fifth issue cover of French men's magazine Lui features Kate Moss's naked butt, photographed by Terry Richardson, expert butt photographer.

According to Metro News France (which, disclaimer, I read using my limited French language skills — what follows may not be 100% accurate), the cover folds out into three panels. One of the panels shows the 40-year-old model's face and another shows Moss topless, crossing her legs in the air. (The third panel is the buttastic one you see pictured above.)

The issue will reportedly appear on newsstands tomorrow.

Team Canada Toques Sell for $200 as Supply Fails to Meet Demand

HUDSON'S BAY COMPANY - Canadian Olympic Uniform

Though the Winter Olympics are officially over, and we can finally wrestle back control of our TV to mid-season, scandal-laden dramas (hello, The Americans), Hudson’s Bay continues to make a killing off its Team Canada garb.

Just last week, the department store announced it had sold out of its most popular item, the quintessentially Canadian $20 toque. “Completely sold out. Across the country,” staff told the Toronto Star when asked about the cheap and cheerful pompom hats. Well, the big department store may have sold the last of its cozy knits, but there’s one place in which the black market for beanies is thriving — eBay.

Team Canada

As Toronto Life first pointed out, eBay sellers are now offering the same $20 hats for a whopping $200 to those who missed out on securing a toque through legitimate channels. It’s the equivalent of popping into a backstreet alleyway and shopping for winterwear from a mysterious man’s open jacket. “Psst, you wanna try the Team Sweden mittens? I’ll throw in a Serbian scarf if you buy now. Cash only…I was never here.”

The New York Times described the Team Canada toque as one of the few stylish pieces to grace the Sochi opening ceremonies, while also commending their own holiday-style Ralph Lauren sweaters, which it seems are now also selling on eBay for well over $1000. In the meantime, the market is also being flooded with counterfeit Olympic goodies — a fake Sochi 2014 Olympic torch was selling for $7,000 — meaning that, as with most eBay merchandise, the message remains buyer beware. You may fare better in that back alley.
