Adidas Announces Collaboration with Mary Katrantzou

We may have only just recovered from the excitement of Alexander Wang’s forthcoming collection with H&M, but there is even more brilliant news on the collaboration front as Adidas has announced a long-term partnership with British designer Mary Katrantzou

Katrantzou’s Spring 2014 collection may have been a catalyst for this, with her abstract photographic prints of sneakers and laces over her designs. The American sports brand is definitely pleased to add the designer to its list of collaborators that has included Topshop, Stella McCartney and Pharell Williams.

Speaking to Vogue UK this morning, Adidas global creative director Dirk Schoenberger was thrilled about the forthcoming partnership. "The collaboration between Adidas and Mary Katrantzou merges the exceptional talent of one of the most interesting designers of today and a company that embraces many different cultures from sports, pop, music and fashion, I admire Mary's extraordinary sense of printing techniques, colours and silhouette that will bring another amazing new aesthetic to the Adidas originals women's collection."

Currently reported to be released in November this year, the collection will include both footwear and clothing, and given that one of those expertly printed dresses from Mary’s own range usually retails at around $2,500, you can bet that this collection will be far more affordable and will not be left on the shelves for long, and Katrantzou cannot wait either.

"I'm really excited to be working with Adidas on a line of apparel and footwear, I grew up, like so many other kids around the world, wearing Adidas sneakers and I'm really excited about bringing my vision to such a global brand,” she told Vogue UK earlier. "They have a fantastic heritage and their ability to innovate in sportswear makes them the perfect partner for us to work with in this market."

We cannot wait to see what the results will be.

Lindsey Wixson Looks ‘Cute’ on Vogue Ukraine’s May Cover (Forum Buzz)

American model Lindsey Wixson has landed herself another Vogue cover, this time for the May issue of Vogue Ukraine. She was photographed by Jeff Bark and is seen modeling a Spring 2014 Prada dress, accompanied by a tagline that announces 'Girl Power' as a theme of the issue.

TheFashionSpot forum members had a lot to say about this cover. Some, like MulletProof, didn't like the hair and model choice ("I'm all for baby-faced models and Lindsey's certainly had her moments, but that hair is only making things worse here… she looks like one of those odd 9-year-old girls that were allowed to overpluck their eyebrows before their time.") Others were disappointed that this lacked the weirdness of Jeff Bark's usual work ("I was hoping for something wonderfully weird when I saw that Jeff Bark had shot this, but it just looks like a standard cover. Nothing wrong with that, but hopefully the editorial will bring forth that strange and beautiful feel only Jeff can bring," commented Luxx.)

TeeVanity posted, "This is a very cute cover, Lindsey looks adorable."

But 'cute' and 'adorable' does not go down well with all tFS members in this instance. It didn't go unnoticed with some members that a cover like this coming from a country that is currently going through major political struggles may seem inappropriate. 

"Could Vogue Ukraine be the first edition to publish during a civil war?? It just seems odd to me to see the new covers come out with so much more going on in their country. Life must go on I suppose," noted A.D.C.

To which MyNameIs added, "I wasn't going to mention anything, but since you brought it up. I was thinking something along those lines. They don't even seem to acknowledge the reality there right now. I was wondering whether they'd go for a somber cover this month, but nope. Seems somehow inappropriate, no? I understand life must go on and all that, but you can't remove yourself completely from the reality."

Do you think it is insensitive of Vogue Ukraine to keep publishing during these times? Join the discussion on the forums or comment below.

Daria Werbowy Lands a Tiffany & Co. Campaign (Forum Buzz)

She's fronted multiple magazine covers and been the face of countless designer brands, and now Daria Werbowy can add Tiffany & Co. campaign girl to her resume. The Canadian beauty is the new face of the jewelry brand's 'Atlas designs' which are set to debut in the upcoming months.

Werbowy is seen posing elegantly for Michael Thompson, as they capture the timeless elegance of the brand which was founded in 1837. You really cannot go wrong with an effortless model like Daria for an advertising campaign, can you? These images are a true testament to how versatile she really is.

Forum members are extremely satisfied with this campaign with Starry writing, "Beautiful images! She looks cool yet feminine in the pictures!"

"Daria + Thompson is always a lovely combo…really love how T&C switched the over-airbrushed, glossy shots for a pared down B&W portrait," enthused Fiercification.

VersaceVixen009 also shared the same positive attitude: "Ahh so classy! Love the second shot especially!"

W Magazine’s May Cover Is ‘Haunting’ with Rosamund Pike (Forum Buzz)

She's underrated and finally getting the recognition she deserves: Rosamund Pike is W magazine's May 2014 cover subject. The actress, who plays the lead female role in the highly anticipated movie Gone Girl, is photographed by the movie's director David Fincher for W's annual beauty issue. Pike is wearing a Valentino dress and Van Cleef & Arpels rings.

This is perfect for a beauty issue, right? The cover shot has all the right elements and oozes a certain darkness which gives a slight nod to the mood of Fincher's latest movie which hits cinemas October 4, 2014.

Members of theFashionSpot are loving this. "Weird, cool, arresting, awesome. I love it," wrote Pyslocke.

"That's a very out of the box cover. I like it a lot especially for the beauty issue," enthused ChronicKnowledge.

TeeVanity seemed optimistic about the issue's contents: "Oh yes, I am liking this, feeling like this is going to be a good issue."

Nepenthes commented, "There's something really haunting about this cover. I love the idea, definitely a win for W."

"Never thought that [she] would [land a] U.S. major cover like W. This is a pleasant surprise. She's [a] beautiful and underrated actress. The cover shot is really cool," stated fluxxx.

Coco Rocha Is Russian Harper’s Bazaar’s May Cover Girl (Forum Buzz)

She's back and doing what she does best. Coco Rocha is on the cover of Harper's Bazaar Russia's May 2014 issue. The Canadian beauty is photographed by Ben Cope and wears a dress designed by Raf Simons for Christian Dior's Spring 2014 collection.

Within moments of the cover being posted on the forum, members began to express their delight with GlamorousBoy simply deeming the cover "beautiful."

"Gorgeous! Love that Dior on Coco and the blue background makes the whole image really striking. Great pose too!" enthused Nepenthes.

I'm not feeling this, though. I think Coco Rocha overdoes it with the posing, although there's no denying her modeling expertise and she has achieved a vast amount in her career. I did, however, absolutely adore Coco's Australian Harper's Bazaar April 2014 cover which was for subscribers. I doubt anything will compare to that from now on.

Dior Is Bringing Its Cruise Collection Runway Show to Brooklyn Next Month

Duggal Greenhouse Brooklyn Navy Yard Runway Fashion

It's my personal theory that eventually Brooklyn will become so expensive and so overcrowded with ibankers and other bros eager to grind up against each other every morning on the subway during rush hour, all in exchange for a teeny tiny morsel of cultural cachet or whatever, that those of us who live here because it's a slightly more spacious and affordable alternative to Manhattan will be priced out of this borough and back onto that tiny stupid island of faddish pastries. By my calculations, I have approximately eighteen months max left in Brooklyn before it becomes unbearable here and I'm booted over to — who knows? Queens, Staten Island, (a newly vacant) Manhattan, Los Angeles, Vienna, whatever. Sounds great. Queens has great Chinese food, Staten Island has a ferry and I've never visited Vienna, but I hear very promising things about the coffee.

And for that reason — because the world is such a big place and there is room for all of us to thrive in it — I welcome Dior's decision to show its upcoming Cruise collection at Duggal Greenhouse in Brooklyn this May. The gorgous, light-soaked space, which we toured earlier this year just ahead of Alexander Wang's Fall 2014 show, appealed to the luxury label because of its unique space and East River views.

"We wanted the show to feel very New York, and the Navy Yard’s view and space captures the city,” a representative for the brand told WWD

To address the traffic issues which plagued guests gridlocked in the labyrinthine Navy Yard after Alexander Wang's show in February, Dior will arrange door-to-door transport for all attendees, with a combination of car service and ferry transport. The ferry will dock at 34th Street and FDR Drive and disembark directly at the entrance of the venue.
