London Fashion Week is just around the corner and the British Fashion Council has announced that it is teaming up with online giant eBay for a second season of designer collaborations. The BFC Contemporary Shop will once again be exclusive to eBay.co.uk and boast a capsule collection consisting of limited-edition accessories from the likes of Zoë Jordan, Paper London, Georgia Hardinge and Alexis Barrell.
The collection features silk scarves and tablet cases that can alternatively be carried as a clutch. Of course, each piece in the collection captures the designer’s unique signature. Jordan, for instance, has taken inspiration directly from her Spring 2015 collection, adorning a clutch and silk scarf with her blue glacial print. It’s a definite favourite of ours.
You’ll be pleased to know that nothing in the collection costs more than £100, which is a relatively cheap investment for a piece of limited-edition, soon-to-be fashion history. The online shop will open on February 20 to coordinate with the kick off of the Fall 2015 shows.
Vogue Ukraine managed to impress us last month, but can the publication do it again? For its big March 2015 issue, the magazine tapped Caroline Trentini and enlisted Tom Munro to capture both the cover image and accompanying story. The U.S. Vogue favorite stands before a studio backdrop wearing a piece from Louis Vuitton with her hair pulled back, putting the focus on the (questionable) eye makeup.
“I’d expect something a little more dark and sexy from Tom Munro. This cover isn’t working for me because I don’t like the makeup and Caroline is overly Photoshopped but I do like the colors,” noted KateTheGreatest.
Oxymore shared the same sentiments: “I don’t like it at all. I think the makeup doesn’t suit her too. I’ve never been a Caroline fan and I don’t understand the hype around her.”
Not everyone disliked the cover, though. “I like it a lot, I think Caroline looks great and I love the color scheme,” said marsnoop2.
“Sorry, but I really do not understand how is it possible that this magazine still exists… but this cover is pretty good, I like the colors,” GlamorousBoy shared.
Breathless simply declared, “I don’t hate it.”
Forum member ellastica was also on board and admired, “They did at least try to do something different with the cover.. love her freckles. Caroline looks so grown up here!”

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and Rebecca Minkoff is feeling a little sentimental. The designer rounded up eight of her style influencer pals to muse on love for a Valentine’s Day themed video, aptly called “Love is in the Air at Rebecca Minkoff.” Leandra Medine, DJ Chelsea Leyland, Refinery29 Senior Style Editor Annie Georgia Greenberg, P.S. – I Made This… founder Erica Domesek, Teen Vogue Senior Editor Jessica Minkoff, stylist Marina Muñoz, Flour Shop founder Amirah Kassem and Karen Walker campaign star Toast the dog join the designer for the video.
The crew sits down to answer a series of love-related questions, like what it feels like to be in love (like getting Gakked on Nickelodeon, according to Medine), if they believe in soulmates and what their ideal relationship would be like. It’s definitely a touching and fun way to celebrate the holiday — whether or not you share it with someone special.
Watch Minkoff and crew chat about love in the video above.
Naomi Campbell may not be too keen on them, but the Instagirls are definitely hot now, and they’re racking up the campaigns. The latest of this class of models to score a major spot is Bella Hadid, who fronts Botkier’s spring ads. Taking inspiration from New York City’s streetwise mood, Simon Cave captured Ms. Hadid posing with a series of candy-colored pastel and neutral carryalls, including a zipper-festooned backpack and a play on the crossbody, a warm weather staple, rendered in a kind of Tiffany blue.
Plus one for team Insta. Check out the gorgeous images of Bella from the campaign below. (more…)
The polo shirt, along with loafers and khakis, is a quintessential part of the prep aesthetic. Two prep giants, J.Crew and Lacoste, are joining forces to bring you a polo shirt collaboration fit for Sunday brunch at the country club.
The shirts are an updated throwback, inspired by the 1983 version of Lacoste’s alligator logo, rendered in blue as opposed to the green we’re used to seeing. The shirts will come in four colorways (navy blue, orange, burgundy and white) and will be available for purchase at 30 J.Crew stores and at jcrew.com starting February 18. Prepare to shell out between $55 and $98 for the shirts for children (including babies), men and women.
It’s a match made in prep heaven.
