Beginning Boutique screwed up, but it’s hoping to make amends by giving out free ice cream. The online fashion store recently underwent some downtime on its website, and in a bid to apologise are offering sugary sweetness to its customers through a partnership with Mövenpick. (more…)
We’re not complaining over Ryan Gosling being tapped as Renegade Collective‘s cover star for Issue 14. But it’s definitely an interesting and left-of-field choice for the entrepreneurial magazine, which has never had a male-only cover before. We thought we’d better talk to Editor-in-Chief Lisa Messenger about her very attractive decision to put Ryan on the cover.
No matter the eyebrow-raising choice, every person who has the honour of gracing Renegade Collective‘s cover has to tick four boxes: Game changers, thought leaders, rule breakers and style makers. When we sit back and wonder if Ryan fulfills the criteria, we can’t help but feel a little guilty for not knowing more about this man beyond his impeccable charm, relationship status and red carpet appeal.

When it comes to Italy, a few keywords pop to mind, like food, fashion and handsome men. As of this fall, you’ll be adding Liu Jo to that list. The ready-to-wear brand that mixes sophisticated style with trendy accents is launching in Canada this month.
Fall highlights include office-appropriate separates, such as tailored blazers, tapered trousers and shift dresses in menswear-inspired wools, tweeds and herringbone patterns. For casual outings, there are sequined silk blouses, slouchy oversized sweaters and off-the-shoulder tops that are equal parts sexy and edgy. And accessories include a wide range of cool booties, towering stilettos and cute flats as well as soft-as-butter leather totes, satchels and clutches with subtle bejewelled embellishments.
The strongest component of the brand is its vast selection of denim. Liu Jo boasts a variety of washes and treatments (think faded, distressed, indigo-dyed, bleached, stonewashed and patched) on a seemingly endless array of styles. Fancy a loose boyfriend style, a super-stretchy skinny or a comfortable crop? Liu Jo’s got it. And they’re all capped off with the brand’s signature rhinestone accent on the back label. (more…)
Any event with Vogue attached to it is destined to be fabulous. That’s why we’re so excited for the annual Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, which takes place this Thursday, September 4. So are a bunch of stylish models and celebs, who are backing the event by clogging our Instagram feeds with shots of themselves in black and white Vogue T-shirts.
The official VFNO T-shirt design is by Bassike‘s Mary Lou Ryan and Deborah Sams, in collaboration with the Vogue team. It’s made of cotton jersey, and, just like Bassike, the piece is totally basic. It reads “Vogue Australia” on the front, and a sports jersey style “VFNO 14″ at the back.
You’ll keep seeing it beyond Instagram, though, with Vogue staff sporting the T-shirt for the official event. It could get confusing because the general public can buy the piece online as well.
The Gentlewoman has rapidly established itself as one of our forum members’ most favored publications. Therefore it’s no wonder everyone is excited about the magazine’s Autumn/Winter issue. The British-born biannual fashion title selected pop sensation Robyn to star on the front cover of its 10th issue, with the singer delivering some major David Bowie vibes, while being photographed by Liz Collins for a classic black and white portrait.
The cover sure does have members of our forums ecstatic. “SOOOO good to finally have Robyn on a cover! I can NOT wait to pick this up!” raved VogueDisciple93.
“Woah! I’m pleasantly surprised by this cover choice. I love her. She’s sooo fun live and has a very unique way to carry herself. This is great, can’t wait to get this,” posted mistress f.
Thefrenchy offered, “Cool cover, I love Robyn. I absolutely cannot wait to see the content!”
“She’s just the coolest,” simply wrote Marc10.
Omnis acknowledged the evident David Bowie inspiration: “I see a lot of David Bowie in her there.”
“Great! And nice to see her looking her age as well,” noted a satisfied tatouejeremie.
Echoing everyone’s delight was justaguy, who posted, “Nice seeing Robyn on their cover!”
Await the content of the issue inside the thread and join the anticipation, just don’t forget to share your own opinion here.
Here’s a collaboration we didn’t see coming: Rachel Zoe‘s The Zoe Report just rolled out its latest crop of designs for its second-ever “Collective” capsule, which this time around features designs by Rodarte‘s Kate and Laura Mulleavy. For those eager to shop, you’re in luck because the six-style limited-edition collection just launched on The Zoe Report today.
For the exclusive range, you’ll find new iterations of Rodarte’s famous T-shirts, rendered in metallic lettering. As an added bonus, you can accessorize your “Radarte” or “Rohearte” T-shirt with a necklace or bracelet of Swarovski crystal baubles, complete with a butterfly charm for those times you wish to serve middle school dance realness.
The collection is pretty pricey — a T-shirt will set you back $113, a sweatshirt rings in at $154 and you can expect to shill out $230 for the charm bracelet and $299 for the necklace.
Is it worth it? Sure, for Rodarte fans and people OK with spending $100 on a T-shirt that’s only 38 percent cotton. But we can’t lie — we’re really digging this new take on the Radarte tee.
