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.

Public School Will Show Its Biggest Women’s Collection Ever This Season

Public School has enjoyed tremendous success in the past year, winning the 2014 CFDA Award for Menswear Designer of the Year and the International Woolmark Prize. Since its launch in 2007, most of the buzz has been around the brand’s menswear offerings and the question was always when the label would delve into womenswear. After plenty of prodding from industry people, including Anna Wintour, Public School bowed its first women’s collection during last year’s Fall 2014 shows.

A year and a CFDA award later, Public School is looking to beef up its women’s venture. According to The New York Times, the fashion house will show twice as many womenswear looks this season. But making clothes for women coming from a menswear background has not been without its challenges. Designer Dao-Yi Chow says the most difficult part is “learning the anatomy of a woman — and learning to speak a whole other language.”

Public School will show its Fall 2015 collection on Sunday and we can’t wait to see what the brand has in store.

Kendall Jenner Appears ‘Lifeless’ on Allure’s March Cover (Forum Buzz)

First the Kardashian-Jenners took over our TV screens and now they’re dominating the newsstand. Kim Kardashian’s cover of Love‘s Spring 2015 issue is available now, while Allure‘s newest cover goes to half-sister Kendall Jenner. Photographed by Mario Testino, the 19-year-old is captured up close and personal, sporting a head full of voluminous curls, thick black eyeliner and a nude lip.

The forum thread naturally received attention the moment it was started. “She’s not going away anytime soon is she?” [J.]Oliver asked, not getting us off on a positive note.

“Well, at least it means her work by Mario Testino is not for a US Vogue cover,” JoCaderone stated after we first assumed the shoot a while back was for Vogue.

Oxymore didn’t show much enthusiasm either: “I saw that cover on twitter and totally thought it was Mila Kunis. The makeup is bad. The hair, well they wanted to try something new I guess but it doesn’t work for me. She doesn’t give me anything here. It’s lifeless.”

“I don’t care who’s on the cover of Allure, but why are their covers always terrible? I feel like Anna needs to step in here, like she did with Lucky,” added blueorchid.

Marsnoop2 yawned, “Ugh, still unimpressed by her. And to think I was starting to find her less offensive as a model.”

“It’s like a match made in heaven. Testino & Kendall serving the kings of mediocrity for Allure!” slammed coutugh. Ouch.

“I have a problem with the hair, doesn’t look good on her. Those pictures are not appealing to me,” Emmanuelle said.

Alexander McQueen Is the Subject of a New Play

Alexander McQueen continues to fascinate people even five years after his tragic death. In 2011, the Metropolitan Museum of Art honored the work of the designer with its Savage Beauty exhibit, which was seen by 661,509 people and was one of the most popular fashion exhibits in the museum’s history. It was so successful that Savage Beauty is now headed to London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, opening March 14. McQueen is also one-half of the subject of a Dana Thomas Book, Gods and Kings: The Rise and Fall of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano.

And the fascination continues with a play due to bow at the St. James Theatre stage in London this May. The James Phillips written show will tell the story of a young woman who breaks into McQueen’s home to steal a dress and is caught in the act by the designer — a thief with discerning taste indeed.

According to The Guardian, members of the McQueen family approve of the play, which will be directed by John Caird. Catch the play at the St. James Theatre from May 12 to June 6.

New York City to Triple Its Fashion Investment, Name a Street After Oscar de la Renta

Happy Fashion Week, everybody! Last night, Made Fashion Week held an opening ceremony of sorts at Milk Studios to kick off the event, which was attended by a smattering of fashion folk, including CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg, CEO Steven Kolb, designer Nanette Lepore, Public School’s Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow along with a handful of others. But the evening’s most noted guest was New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who was on hand with his wife, First Lady Chirlane McCray. De Blasio came to address the crowd and drop a few major announcements about the city’s plans to further its relationship with the fashion industry, which he mentioned brings the city $2 billion in tax revenue and employs about 180,000 people.

“We want this industry to grow, we want it to give more and more opportunity…we want it all over the five boroughs. When you believe in something, you invest in it,” he said, before announcing that the City of New York will be putting $15 million into the industry to help nurture the present and future of fashion. “The initiative will help emerging talent study fashion in New York City schools with a scholarship,” de Blasio explained. “We’ll help students gain exposure to the fashion industry with fully-funded internships. We’ll help budding designers get the finances they need to get the garments on the store racks, and we’re going to help New York City manufacturers gain access to the latest technology.”

De Blasio also announced that the City of New York would be honoring Oscar de la Renta by naming a street after the late designer, a point that was greeted with robust applause and surprised, but touched gasps. 

And with that, and an ending remark in Spanish, Made Fashion Week kicked off with a few exciting developments that members of the fashion world can look forward to. But for now, the main objective is to get through the week.
