Absolut Collaborates with Emerging Designer Kitty Joseph

Over the years, Absolut Vodka has collaborated with a plethora of iconic artists and fashion designers, including Stella McCartney and Gareth Pugh, and this season they’ve teamed up with emerging British designer Kitty Joseph. 

Joseph is a Royal College of Art MA Graduate in Textile Design who has experience in several different areas of the fashion industry including trend prediction for leading international brands and creating print collections. She’s worked with an array of international celebrities and style icons such as Lady Gaga, for whom she created a bespoke piece, and last season saw her collaborate with Pop magazine during London Fashion Week to create a film which aired in the BFC’s Canon Cinema Space.

Kitty has created a three-piece capsule collection and accessories inspired by Absolut Originality, a new limited-edition bottle with a key cobalt blue stripe aesthetic created by infusing the colour into the molten glass during production. So, the three different outfits demonstrate the progress of the colour infusing into the bottle… Clever right? Take a look at her designs below.

The accessories are also equally as cool, and shape is key as the range is led by oversized square bangles and chunky circular or hexagonal rings. Completely wearable statement pieces!

Versace Isn’t Excited About Lifetime’s New Original Movie ‘House of Versace’

Lifetime's new original movie, House of Versace, is slated to premiere this Saturday, to the delight of anyone who understands why a Lifetime movie is a genius vehicle for the Italian fashion label's scandalous, murderous past. Based on the the unauthorized biography House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder, and Survival, which chronicles the Versace family's rise and fall and starring Gina Gershon as Donatella Versace, the movie promises to be deliciously trashy (trailer below). But when WWD reached out to Versace to ask whether they had any thought or reactions, the house sent back an icy reply: 

 “Versace has neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV movie about Mrs. Versace. Since Versace did not authorize the book on which it is based, the movie should only be seen as a work of fiction.”

Shouldn't be a problem:

RCMP Barbie is the Greatest Thing We’ll Never Have

RCMP BarbieRecently, I was swooning over the new Hervé Léger by Max Azria Barbie, or more specifically, her enviable Hervé Léger bandage dress, but move over fashion Barbie because there’s a way more styling doll in town… Introducing the RCMP Barbie, the redheaded babe who can not only lay claim to Ken, but also rock a super suave Mountie outfit.

Released as part of the World Barbie Collection, the RCMP Barbie hails from the land of the maple leaf, maple syrup and the maple donut: Canada. She comes dressed in the uniform currently worn by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which includes a scarlet tunic accented with the cross strap and belt, navy and yellow breeches and tall Strathcona boots. Her Stetson can be removed to reveal her bright red hair, while she also comes in a keepsake travel trunk packaging and includes a “pink passport” to travel across Canada, and the world, in style!

But alas, there’s only one problem with getting your hands (child-sized or otherwise) on this new doll as, after going on sale for $30 on the Mountie Shop, she sold out within 48 hours! The online store had originally stocked just 300 of the “Canadian Girls,” but has since been left high and dry while they wait for a new shipment to come in. In the meantime Mattel Inc. has allegedly manufactured around 1,200 in the first production run, so while there may be more to come (at the Mountie Store, as well as Target and Loblaws), we living dolls will have move fast.

Claire Danes Finally Gets the Stunning Vogue (UK) Cover She Deserves

Here's Claire Danes on the cover of Vogue UK, photographed by Nathanial Goldberg. The actress is styled in a look from Louis Vuitton's Resort 2014 collection and pictured either sitting in a dentist's chair or (the plot thickens) flying in a plane. Either way, the ambiguous setting is an improvement (just one of the many) over the cheesy Middle Earth backdrop we saw when Danes appeared on the cover of US Vogue in August. The fact that a big budget fashion glossy produced an attractive photo of a beautiful woman shouldn't seem like such an accomplishment, but this is a bleak world.

It’s Confirmed: Marc Jacobs is Leaving Louis Vuitton to Focus on Taking His Brand Public

It's been confirmed: Marc Jacobs is leaving Louis Vuitton after 16 years at the helm of the French fashion house. The news was confirmed to WWD's Bridget Foley this morning by Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH (the luxury conglomerate which owns the prestige brand), the designer himself and his longtime business partner, Robert Duffy.

Jacobs is stepping down to focus on preparing his eponymous New York City brand to make an initial public offering (IPO). But just because Jacobs is stepping down from his position at Louis Vuitton doesn't mean he's severing his relationship with his former bosses: LVMH owns a 96% stake in Marc Jacobs International and one-third of the trademark. 

The development was first confirmed by the French business magazine Challenges on September 21. The publication also reported that Nicolas Ghesquière was the most likely successor, though other candidates were still being considered. Speculation that Jacobs would leave Louis Vuitton emerged in June, when WWD reported on rumors that the designer was being considered for creative director at Coach
