Everyone Needs to Get Pumped for Ksubi’s Australian Comeback

People, Ksubi is back. The rebellious label has returned to the Australian market after a brief receivership hiatus, with a Summer 14 range aptly called Out of the Darkness.

The resurgence sees Ksubi cut back to its roots with a denim-heavy range for its loyal customers, and also marks the first collaboration between Ksubi LA and General Pants Co. Sydney. The partnership has leveraged the label’s DNA via fresh innovation, to reinvent iconic styles with new fits and washes.

Photographer Georges Antoni captured the essence of Ksubi and its cult following with raw images and fresh, hipster faces, with no shortage of beards, tattoos and long male locks. 20-year-old LA-based Aussie model Helena Vestergaard, the bae to 51-year-old Red Hot Chilli Peppers lead singer Anthony Keidis, is one of the leading faces.

#OddCouple alert! Mega hunk Didier Cohen and mohawk babe Kelly Osbourne have this morning fuelled, and somewhat confirmed, rumours of a budding romance on the Kyle and Jackie O Show.

After a sunny Sunday on Sydney’s waters together, plus a splurge of Instagram posts hashtagged #OddCouple, we were already feeling a little suspect about the two, who are working on Australia’s Next Top Model together. But then Jackie O posed the question on live radio earlier today, asking Kelly, “Is there anything going on with you and Didier?” (more…)

Converse Is Finally Suing Everyone for Knocking Off Chuck Taylors


Image: Converse

We all know what Converse Chuck Taylors look like. Chances are if you’re reading this, you’ve probably owned a pair. Heck, you may currently have the kicks stashed in your closet or on your feet right now. But unfortunately for the storied sneaker brand, lots of retailers have been going unchecked copying the style of its famed shoe. Think about it. How many times have you gone to Walmart or Fashion Bug and picked up a pair of off-brand sneakers thinking they were Chucks? We’re willing to bet it’s happened a lot. And the people at Converse have just about had it. 

The New York Times reports that Converse has filed a lawsuit against 31 retailers claiming trademark infringement over the famous Chuck Taylors. Converse says that for too long, retailers have been peddling shoes that look far too similar to its own. Skechers, Walmart and Kmart are among the brands accused of copying the design. According to Converse’s lawyers, the company has written 160 cease-and-desist letters to a variety of brands, which have used the shoe’s signature rubber toe cap and stripes bordering the sole. It is these features that Converse says have been knocked off by several retailers and is causing brand confusion. It’s also appealing to the International Trade Commission to make it illegal for such knockoffs to make it to American shores.

A Valentino-Clad Olivia Palermo Poses for The Edit, Discusses Her Own Label (Forum Buzz)

Net-a-Porter continues to deliver excellent fashion content. The high-fashion retailer’s print magazine entitled Porter currently has Christy Turlington Burns on its cover and the website’s weekly online supplement called The Edit scored Olivia Palermo as its latest cover subject. The American socialite is captured by Raf Stahelin for a 60s-inspired shoot. Olivia resembles Twiggy with her dynamic poses as she dons head-to-toe Valentino for the magazine’s shoes and bags special.

The Edit October 9, 2014 Olivia Palermo


To coincide with the appearance, Olivia chats with Jennifer Dickinson about everything from starting her new label to the importance of a skinny belt. The reality star is featured in a 14-page spread, where we see her showcase a variety of dresses, shoes and bags from the likes of Gucci, Calvin Klein, Pierre Hardy and Tod’s.

The few comments the cover has received have been mixed, but seem to agree on a certain element. “God, Olivia is everywhere! Loved the concept, but the poses are too OTT,” commented Benn98, who was left underwhelmed.

“Olivia’s face looks amazing, but I agree that the poses are kinda awkward,” replied inwhiterooms.

Beyoncé Has Her First Bad Hair Day in, Like, Ever

There are a few things we never thought we’d see in our lives. The day America elected a black president. The gentrification of Bushwick. The end of Amy Poehler and Will Arnett (seriously, R.I.P.). But today, possibly the most impossible of scenarios came true and we’re really not sure how we’re going to get over it. Beyoncé is rocking a haircut — and it is NOT cute.

No, this isn’t a case of preferring a different hairstyle on her, like when she got that pixie cut last year. This is a straight-up “girl, what were you thinking?” moment and it pains us to say that Queen Bey is looking a hot mess in this wig she’s rocking. And we’re saying “wig” because we’re really hoping it’s a wig and not a haircut.

Can we please just talk about those bangs giving medieval Catholic priest realness? We realize we’re at risk of having our Beygency cards revoked for this (our most prized possession), but this is simply not a look worthy enough to grace HM Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter’s perfect, precious head.

But you know what? We all make mistakes and even though she is pretty much perfect, even Beyoncé has to have a bad hair day sometimes. At the very least, her one bad hair day makes us feel better about the bad hair month we’re still having. Carry on Queen Bey!

Chanel Sues What About Yves Over Ghostbusters Sweatshirt

The designer parody logo trend has definitely caught on with the cool kids. Even a few of the designers whose logos are being turned on their heads have embraced the movement. But it seems the folks at Chanel aren’t so keen on everyone’s interpretation of the trend. The Fashion Law reports that the French fashion house is suing What About Yves founder Jeanine Heller for using its interlocking C logo without permission in a few offerings. The issue is over the “Official Chanel X Ghostbusters Sweatshirt Design,” which features the Ghostbusters ghost peeking out from behind Chanel’s famous double Cs.

Chanel’s people say the sweatshirts cause brand confusion, as the integrity of the Cs are intact, save for the addition of the Ghostbusters ghost. The suit also claims that Heller failed to modify the logo in a meaningful way, saying that she purposefully used the “clearly recognizable CC monogram mark [on] her own clothing precisely because of the iconic status of the mark, with knowledge of its association with Chanel, in order to call to mind Chanel.” If the parody was crystal clear, the use of the logo would be legal, but Chanel doesn’t see the parody in the piece at all. 

In addition to barring Heller and What About Yves from selling the sweatshirts, Chanel also wants the brand to hand over any products with the Chanel symbol as well as any profits made from the sale of the shirts in question. 

While the parody aspect of the shirt isn’t lost on us, we can see where Chanel is coming from. That sweatshirt could have easily been a result of a collaboration between Ghostbusters and Chanel (as bizarre as that would be). Chanel could have a really strong case here, although we’re not sure if the sweatshirt in question does as much damage to the Chanel brand as it is implying.

It will be very interesting to see how this one unfolds.

UPDATE: What About Yves’ Jeanine Heller contacted us to inform us that the lawsuit Chanel filed against her is being dropped. Apparently, since What About Yves is a corporation, Chanel cannot legally sue the owner (Heller), who mentioned that not only was she never doing business as WAY, but her stake in the brand was bought last year. “They filed against the wrong party,” Heller told us over email. “You would think with a company such as Chanel, their attorneys would do research before filing a trivial lawsuit.”
