Candice Swanepoel Launches Charity Denim Collaboration with Mother

Candice Swanepoel: Victoria’s Secret Angel and now denim collaborator. The model has teamed with denim brand Mother for a capsule collaboration that can best be described as a cross between Candice’s own denim collection, the ease of the girl next door and the off-duty style of 90s supermodels. The washes range from medium to white and you’ll find skinny, boyfriend and shorts silhouettes in solid and distressed finishes.

Sales from the line will benefit mothers2mothers, a charity that helps mothers prevent the spread of HIV to their babies. Mothers2mothers is quite a popular charity with the fashion set. When Victoria Beckham auctioned off her wardrobe with The Outnet, proceeds from the sale went to the same charity.

Candice says she may consider doing more collections if this pans out. Judging from the jeans, we have a good feeling that it probably will. The collection is avaiable now online at Mother’s website.

Check out a few images from the collection below. (more…)

Andreea Diaconu Is Vogue Korea’s Prada-Clad February Cover Girl (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Korea is one of those editions that unfortunately often falls off the radar, but the magazine has caught our attention this month with its eye-catching yet simple cover. Andreea Diaconu is the magazine’s cover model of choice, her third for Vogue. The Romanian brunette beauty and favorite of Emmanuelle Alt was shot by Alexi Lubomirski in a classic studio setting, posing elegantly in Prada.

Surprisingly, the majority of our forum members are loving it! “Love this cover. Andreea’s beautiful face and features [should] really get her on more covers!” enthused justaguy.

“Gorgeous! I like everything about this, especially the pose,” contributed blusheels.

Forum member john2elmejor simply described the cover as “amazing!”

Koibito was reminded of something after looking at the cover: “Reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady before she transformed.” Maybe it’s the hat?

Although for the sake of variety, a select few were disappointed. Like burbuja8910, who thought, “She looks terrible,” and wasn’t afraid to voice her opinion.

“I just wish Andreea didn’t look so old on the cover. She looks at least 20 years older than she actually is,” ranted niknak. Ouch, poor Andreea!

“There’s not a pore or a wrinkle on her face, how can she look 43?” questioned kokobombon, firing back.

The styling and cover overall are certainly unusual and we applaud Vogue Korea for that. Share your own opinion here.

Jennifer Lopez x Endless Jewelry Lands in Canada

J-LO bracelets_stacked

Don’t be fooled by the rocks that she’s got… The internationally renowned pop star-slash-actress-slash-woman who gets better looking with every passing year (seriously, has she made a pact with the devil or something?) has collaborated with Endless Jewelry on a collection of bracelets and charms, now available in Canada.

Like Jennifer Lopez herself, the jewellery is unique and fashionable, with rope bracelets crafted from high-quality exotic reptile skins in red, gold and black. To complement the bracelets, JLo has also designed a slew of sterling silver- and gold-plated charms in shapes like rhinestone-encrusted stars, hearts, edgy spikes and coloured gems. 

“My exclusive collection with Endless Jewelry embraces the attitude of being fun and elegant at the same time,” Jennifer said in a statement. “It is also about letting each woman express her personality through her jewellery. The collection will let women celebrate what is unique and beautiful about themselves.”

The Jennifer Lopez Collection by Endless Jewelry is available in fine jewellery stores across Canada.

Is Dress Barn About to Become Cool? Retailer Adds Designer Collaborations

Dress Barn is looking to shed its dowdy image and up the fashion factor of its offerings. Known for being the kind of store your unstylish country aunt frequents, the retailer is getting a new image with a trendier aesthetic. First order of business? Get those design collaborations on lock.

The retailer is working on a shop-in-shop project called Dressbar, which will feature dresses designed by Carmen Marc Valvo, Adrianna Papell’s Michael Smaldone and Heidi Weisel. The trio has each created a range of 6 to 10 dresses that will live under the respective labels Luxe by Carmen Marc Valvo, Lovely by Adrianna Papell and Mixt by Heidi Weisel. Prices will range from $42 to $70.

Dressbar is due to launch March 4 at 25 Dress Barn stores with plans to expand the shop-in-shop model to other locations over time. Many of the bars will be outfitted with iPads to make shopping easier and Dressbar will have a dedicated website that will include editorial pieces as well as an e-commerce option. A pop-up shop is opening in Manhattan’s Flatiron district the day of the launch.

This sounds like the dawning of a new era for Dress Barn. Retailers like J.Crew and Ann Taylor have had quite a bit of success rebranding their images to become the toast of the fashion set. Perhaps Dress Barn can harness some of that magic through its designer collaborations. If the stuff is cute, we have no doubts it will sell. If it’s not, well, it may be back to the drawing board for the retailer.

Size 22 Tess Holliday Makes Plus-Sized Modeling History

We can add this milestone to the list of the fashion industry’s strides to be more size-inclusive: Tess Holliday (aka Tess Munster), plus-sized model, blogger and body positive activist, has scored herself a contract with London-based modeling firm MiLK Management. You’re probably thinking, “Good for her, why is this a big deal?” It’s because Tess, who wears a size 22 and clocks in at 5 feet 5 inches, is the first woman of her stature to score this kind of deal.

Tess, who lives in Los Angeles, has already appeared in Vogue Italia and has been modeling for some time. She said she had been interested in modeling for a while, but was always told she was too large and too short to fit the bill. But one look at her portfolio will show you the girl’s got some skills and that talk about her not having what it takes? All hogwash. 

The tattooed beauty says she is the founder of #EffYourBeautyStandards, an Instagram page where men and women of all shapes and sizes preen and pose for the camera to show that indeed, it doesn’t matter if you adhere to society’s narrow expectations of what looks good, you can still be a stone cold fox.

We’re hoping that Tess’ success is only the beginning for other women like her — obviously, there is a lot of work still left to do, but maybe other modeling agencies will consider signing women (and men) with different body types in the future.

Olivia Palermo Designs Tech Tote for Aspinal of London

We’re excited to learn that one of our favourite handbag brands, Aspinal of London, has teamed up with style icon Olivia Palermo to create a limited-edition Marylebone Tech Tote, in association with the charity ADCAM.


A photo posted by aspinaloflondon (@aspinaloflondon) on

Aspinal says of the collaboration that its “polished and practical accessories collections complement Olivia Palermo’s personal style making her the perfect partner for this charity project.” We can’t wait to see how she’ll be incorporating the bag into her own wardrobe and we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out at Fashion Week.

Olivia’s tote, which goes on sale in March, not only fulfills your luxury needs with a nod to classic British heritage style, but also allows you to charge up your iPhone or iPad on the go. As you treat yourself, you can rest assured that 100% of the proceeds go to the charity which develops cooperation projects and social responsibility initiatives. It’s fashion with a conscience.

If you fancy adding a tech tote to your arm candy repertoire, then you better be quick as a limited number of only 30 bags have been created. You can beat the launch day frenzy by pre-ordering at Aspinal now, and that’s even before they release the official imagery of the bag!
