Net-a-Porter Teases Peter Pilotto for Target Collaboration with Jessica Stam Preview Campaign

The Peter Pilotto for Target collection — the single most highly-anticipated designer/fast fashion retail collaboration since Isabel Marant-designed pieces appeared in H&M stores eons ago (November) — will launch on February 2. We have been waiting for that day quite eagerly but also patiently. And today we were rewarded for our forbearance with a preview of the London-based designer duo's colorful range, via Net-A-Porter

For the first time ever, Target has partnered with the luxury e-commerce platform to make its designer range available worldwide. And while Target is busy promoting its new free credit monitoring and identity fraud prevention program (created to address the massive credit card data breach that made news late last month), Net-A-Porter is enjoying being the messenger of another kind of good news. The website has posted the collection's first campaign image, which stars Jessica Stam voguing in a colorful matrix of Pilotto-esque prints. Styled to match the background, the Canadian model wears a mixed print, long-sleeved mini-dress with an attached apron (???). She appears to be holding a plastic pencil pouch. School supplies! Target knows me.

Dazed & Confused has just released its "Girls Rule the World" February Issue cover. It features Lupita Nyong'o photographed by Sharif Hamza, suitably styled in pieces from Prada's feminism-inspired Spring 2014 collection. (The 31-year-old was recently announced as one of the faces of Miu Miu's Spring 2014 campaign.)

The 12 Years a Slave actress, who has also earned plenty of attention for her sartorial choices, wears a yellow-shift dress encrusted with emerald-colored gems and a complementary blue military-style jacket with yellow jewels. A red and cyan colorblock background sets off the bright styling.

The issue will also include a spread with Lottie Moss (Kate Moss' 16-year-old sister) photographed by Sean and Seng, an essay by Rookie Mag founder Tavi Gevinson, a conversation about "post-digital" pornography between Beauty Myth author Naomi Wolf and novelist Evie Wyld, and an interview with the first female menswear model, Casey Legler. Sounds like ammazing content, I would eat it for breakfast.

Suvi Koponen Stars on Vogue Germany’s Messy February Cover (Forum Buzz)

Suvi Koponen is usually a safe bet for a striking Vogue cover. But on Vogue Germany’s messy February cover, not even her appearance can save the cover from being a disaster. In what tFS forum member Mat Cyruss calls a “complementary color nightmare,” the Finnish topmodel is wearing a Valentino Spring 2014 outfit and is surrounded by a clutter of text in matching colors.

“They are seriously crazy. Who approved this design?!” asked a shocked Royal-Galliano

Similar sentiments were shared by A.D.C.. He wrote, “This looks seriously amateur… If an art student turned this in it probably wouldn't even get a passing grade. I made better covers in seventh grade using Photoshop.”

"The colors of the print on the cover are horrendous, makes Suvi look so washed out and dull," commented tarantino

The accompanying collections editorial shot by photographers Knoepfel & Indlekofer and starring Suvi also failed to excite.

“I appreciate the simplicity of the main cover story. I just feel perhaps Suvi lacks the conviction necessary to carry such editorial…a bit too vacant looking?” posted AL92

Forum members, however, agreed that the styling (by Nicola Knels) in the editorial was strong enough to make the cover story work anyway and also found other editorials in the issue to be making up for the poor cover. ‘Femme Universelle’ featuring Katlin Aas, and ‘Signalreize’ starring various redheaded models (including Maggie Rizer!), were both well-received on the forums.

Drake and OVO Collaborate on Raptor’s Apparel for One Night Only

Drake OVO 3

Over the weekend, the Toronto Raptors hosted “Drake Night,” an evening dedicated to the team’s global ambassador as they faced off against the Brooklyn Nets. Notwithstanding earlier reports that Drake himself wouldn’t be in attendance at said “Drake Night,” not only did the hometown rapper show face, he also brought his new apparel collaboration of the Raptors x OVO T-shirt that was given away to all the fans who turned up to the big game. Those very T-shirts look a little something like this…

Drake OVO 1 Drake OVO 2

The new shirt is all part of Drake’s rebranding efforts for the Raptors, with the design oozing the same black and gold colour scheme associated with Drizzy’s music label, October’s Very Own. There’s also a dinosaur mascot balling through block-lettered "OVO" and "416" designs, making this shirt not only a coveted piece of sporting memorabilia, but also a fashionable addition to any styled-to-rock ensemble. Hopefully it’s a sign of new things to come as the basketball team consider an even more dramatic redesign under Drake’s guidance; particularly in anticipation of the 2016 NBA All-Star Game that will be hosted in Toronto.

"Exclusive OVO Raptors shirt for everyone attending! Me and @futuretheprince hosting/Dj'ing at halftime! Birth of the 416 section! #Raptors #416 #Toronto," Drizzy wrote on Instagram ahead of the big night, but if you couldn’t make it out to the game, be sure to keep an eye out for the limited-edition tees on eBay, Kijiji or Craigslist. Their prices are predictably rising fast.

Watch: Cara Delevingne Brings In BFF Jourdan Dunn for YSL Beauty Video Campaign

We've been treated to plenty of Cara Delevingne's print work for the latest batch of YSL Beauty ads and now, we've spotted a preview of the campaign's video component, starring the British model and her close friend, Jourdan Dunn, for the brand's Touche Eclat complexion highlighter. 

Delevingne posted a clip from the video to Instagram. The caption is light on details, heavy on feeling: "Preview of something very special with my love @officialjdunn looking HOT! I am missing you like crazy!!!!! ❤❤❤ #doubleDs4life."

A slightly longer version of the video was leaked to YouTube (above). It shows the models dressed in glamorous Saint Laurent pieces, dancing around a giant empty ballroom to a cover of "Tainted Love." For fun, they rub each others faces with the highlighter pen. The product retails for $40
