Camilla and Marc is Opening a Brick-and-Mortar Store for Second Line C&M

Camilla and Marc C&M Sydney

Camilla and Marc C&M Sydney

In a surprising move with today’s retail climate, Aussie brand Camilla and Marc is opening up a new brick-and-mortar shop at The Intersection in Paddington, Sydney. The shop is 100 percent dedicated to the label’s second, more youthful line, C&M, which is something we don’t see often from either local or international brands.

The store will be sophisticated and monochromatic just like C&M’s branding, with an all-white interior and exterior. It will have modern black accents like nickel-dipped rails, hanging mannequins and a bespoke iron chair. If it’s going to be anything like Camilla and Marc’s existing Paddington boutique just five minutes down the road, we’re in for a real retail treat.

The store will launch Saturday, August 9, opening up with C&M’s new Spring 2014 collection. The range comprises classic structure juxtaposed with relaxed, sport luxe, creating a preppy-chic yet laid-back feel. If you want to get a sneak peek of what styles you can actually try on come Saturday, head over to C&M’s online store.

Wife of Lululemon Founder Launches ‘Technical Cashmere’ Brand Kit and Ace

If there’s one thing to say about Canadian fashion brands, it’s that the labels certainly keep things in the family. Joe Fresh and Pink Tartan are two of the biggest companies in the country, respectively owned by husband and wife team Joe Mimran and Kimberley Newport-Mimran. Also joining the doubles act is Lululemon founder Chip Wilson and his wife Shannon.

Lately, Lululemon has been portrayed in a less-than-favourable light, but Shannon is hoping to start afresh with her own brand, the Vancouver-based Kit and Ace, which shills something she likes to call “technical cashmere.” Just like Lululemon, it’s equally rich on price with T-shirts for men and women priced anywhere between $68 and $98 (the men’s cotton options are around $84). But what makes these basics so special is the special blend of 81 percent viscose (aka rayon), 10 percent elastane and nine percent cashmere.

Nine West Would Like to Sell Women Shoes for ‘Starter Husband Hunting’

So much for female empowerment in advertising being a thing. It seems like Nine West is going against the trend with its latest campaign, which you can find on the company’s site. This fall, Nine West wants to outfit women in its selection of shoes — but only if they’re looking for a man.

The shoe brand’s latest promos have sparked outrage online with people calling the ads both ridiculous and sexist. On Nine West’s main page, we see a woman’s foot clad in a leopard print pump with the words “Starter Husband Hunting” superimposed onto the image. Click through, and you’re directed to another page under the brand’s “Shoe Occasions” section featuring a graphic proclaiming, “Whether you’re looking for Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now…We got a shoe for that.” Uh-huh.

Scroll down and you’ll find a selection of shoes (mostly pumps) in black, red and leopard print colorways — gotta be fierce when you’re out looking for a man, amirite? Especially if you don’t plan on keeping him around because, after all, you want a rich starter husband and there are deeper pockets out there. 

“But what if I’m not man-hunting and I need a pair of shoes for something else?” you ask. Don’t worry, Nine West has even more options for you, but only if you’re sending your kids to kindergarten for the first time, otherwise, YOU DON’T DESERVE SHOES AT ALL, SPINSTER.  (more…)
