ASOS Collaborates with Cool East London Brand House of Hackney

If you love both fashion and London, then no doubt you’ve been to the bubbling Hackney area. More specifically, Dalston, based in the trendy East side of the Capital. It’s a hub of emerging designers, fashion forward students, and general creatives floating around here and there, and is therefore the perfect area for new fashion trends to develop.

Many emerging (and actually some established designers too) often admit to visiting the area as a source of inspiration to influence their designs. And of course, several young brands have set up home there for that very reason, and one label that you definitely have to get on your fashion radar is the House of Hackney.


The cool brand is extremely influenced by the area’s students and what’s become the typical grungy Dalston girl look, and they have taken their design signatures and teamed up again with the leading fashion e-tailer ASOS to create a cool new capsule collection called Dalston Tart.

A selection of festive feeling tartans and sumptuous velvet pieces are key to the collaboration and already stocking those virtual shelves, so take a look at some of their striking printed smocks and separates available on at ASOS

Isabel Marant Opens Her First London Boutique

We queued all the way around the block and patiently waited to get inside and snap up the very best pieces of the Isabel Marant pour H&M collection, and it was definitely worth the wait, as it turned out to be an amazing collection that’s since been pictured on an array of the most stylish celebs. Perhaps that’s because, despite being high street, it has a true designer feel, as the collection was actually created at Marant’s mainline factory.

So, with the H&M collection whetting our appetites for more Isabel Marant, we’re super excited about the opening of her first London boutique in Mayfair. To celebrate her launch, she recently held an exclusive party at a rundown chapel in Covent Garden, with quite a few members of top secret fashion royalty in attendance, including the designer herself.

The new store based on Bruton Street has a very minimal feel about it that wouldn’t be at all out of place amongst Berlin’s cool boutique filled streets. Pop in for a peruse around some of the finest pieces from the designer’s latest collections, and who knows, maybe Santa will listen to your wishes and send you a few of your favourites this Christmas.

Vogue Netherlands Gets a Fresh Start and It’s Looking Good (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Netherlands was one of the newer Vogue editions that had all the potential in the world to become a very exciting fashion magazine. But what they have delivered so far failed to impress fashion fans. Too many reprints, stale editorial concepts, not enough big names. It looks like the team behind the magazine realized that they were never quite there yet, as the January/February 2014 cover is a 180° turn from what we have seen in recent months. And the cover tagline even promises a “Fresh Start.” “New Year, New Talent, New Look,” it further says on the cover that features newcomer model Crista Cober. A change that is much needed, as most would agree. 

Cover Story, TFS forum member HeatherAnne commented, “By far their best cover! Very cool move putting Crista on the cover, it was only a matter of time before someone smart grabbed her and did it. Still not enamored with their stylists, but it's a move in the right direction, and a good way to start the year.”

But not everyone was convinced by this effort. DutchHomme thinks Dutch Vogue needs a little more than just a minor revamp. “It is time for a new team for Vogue NL… because this is not working,” he wrote.

“I really want to like this because I adore Crista, but that sitting pose and the raunchy styling isn't appealing to me either,” agreed Cold.  

To me, this cover, which was shot by Marc de Groot, is closer to what I had previously imagined a Dutch edition of Vogue to look like. It’s a little raunchy, cool and sexy. And although this may be far from being outstanding, I certainly do agree with HeatherAnne that this is a move in the right direction.
