Today, American fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez will launch his latest women’s fragrance, NARCISO, with an in-store appearance at the Bloomingdale’s 59th Street flagship store in New York City. This marks the designer’s fourth scent created in collaboration with Beauté Prestige International and the first fragrance named after Rodriguez. The scent celebrates a woman’s power of seduction and luxury with a feminine fragrance that lingers and endures. While musk remains the signature heart of the scent, notes of vetiver, the most elegant note from the woody family, are incorporated with florals like lucid gardenia and soft, radiant Bulgarian rose to create a bold and subtle result. The ad campaign features Brazilian-born model Raquel Zimmermann, who radiates natural, glamorous beauty in the image. NARCISO ($95 to $112) is available now exclusively at Bloomingdale’s stores nationwide and on Bloomingdales.com.
Jennifer Lawrence has returned as the face of Christian Dior‘s latest accessories campaign. The Oscar-winning actress is certainly no stranger to the French fashion house. This new campaign marks Jennifer’s fourth (and it’s starting to show!). Photographed for the second time in a row by Patrick Demarchelier, Jennifer poses in the studio showcasing the brand’s new Be Dior bag, which can be seen in a range of colors and materials throughout the upcoming campaign.
Jennifer might be everyone’s favorite Hollywood actress (regardless of her nude photo scandal), but members of our forums aren’t so fond of the new campaign. “No and NO to Jennifer for Dior,” commented la veronika.
“Jennifer Lawrence is the best fit for a brand that became too boring. Good for LVMH turning Dior into Jil Sander 2.0. I’ll just go back to sleep,” ranted an underwhelmed coutugh.
Also left unsatisfied was Benn98, who writes, “I quite liked her last campaign but this is really lazy. These look like outtakes from the last campaign.”
“Exactly. If it wasn’t because they´re in the new issue of Vanity Fair I´d think they´re from last season,” replied kokobombon.
Making her feelings clear from the start, vandekamp simply declared: “Boring boring BORING.”

U.K.-based WonderLuk is an accessories brand making fashion personal by employing cutting-edge 3D printing technology to create avant-garde accessories. There’s no mass production involved, which means you can infuse your outfits with a totally individual flair. Plus, it’s also interesting to know that these designs can’t be created without a 3D printer, making it extra difficult for high street retailers to emulate.
Covering everything from statement earrings to necklaces, prices range from £18 to £140 and up. The brand’s Kaleidoscope (above) and Fold (below) bracelets are amongst the standout pieces that are definitely demanding our attention.
Is digital printing set to change the fashion game? Well, only time will tell, but with prestigious institutes like London’s Central Saint Martins encouraging designers to embrace the digital world, a design shift is definitely in the air.
H&M remains dedicated to its conscious initiative with the announcement of the new Conscious Denim line, which is expected to be in stores come October 2. An extension of its annual conscious collection, there will be both men’s and women’s offerings, which includes everything from raw denim jeans to jumpsuits and jackets.
H&M determined which washes to use for the collection based on their impact on the environment. Helena Henderson, the brand’s head of sustainability, told WWD that the retailer has “worked hard to reduce the environmental impact from the washing processes alongside using materials that are more sustainable.”
H&M will also use a dedicated website to give customers information on how to take care of their denim in environmentally-friendly ways. Look for the “Clever Care” label on the pieces, which will direct you to all the information.
Can’t wait to see what H&M cooks up!
Like most hopeless romantics, The Bachelor is our guilty pleasure. So after watching the heartbreaking show for some months now, there’s a few things we’ve noticed. Other than Jessica’s doe-eye gaze and Zoe’s electrifying curls, Laurina Fleure‘s wardrobe choice has caught our eye.
You know Laurina, the fabulous bachelorette from Melbourne. The model who also classes herself as an “entrepreneur”? The one who wore a silky cocktail dress only to find out her date involved ten-pin bowling and a #dirtystreetpie?
Well, we’re starting to suspect she’s been using the competition as a business opportunity to promote online fashion store, Pialia Boutique. Shock, we know. Of all the 14 episodes which have aired, there’s only been two times where the woman of mystery hasn’t worn her own threads to a cut-throat rose ceremony.
Shanina Shaik stepped out for the tongue-twistingly titled Courvoisier Launches Exceptional Journey Campaign With Tyson Beckford event on Tuesday, September 16. The Australian model represented her mother country at the event, held at the Skylark in New York, by opting for a silk-and-lace design from luxe label Lover.
She donned a black halter-and-skirt combo, similar to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s navy Lover getup just last month. But Shanina’s separates weren’t the only things matching. Her navy metallic shoes coincidentally complemented Tyson’s blue pants, but whether or not these two are officially back together is still a mystery unsolved.
He watched her walk the runway at TOME’s Spring 15 NYFW show, and stood hand-in-hand with Shanina on the red carpet for the fifth-season premiere of Boardwalk Empire. If they’re trying to keep this whole thing a secret, well, they’re not doing a very good job.
