Is Amazon About to Buy Net-A-Porter?

Richemont online fashion destination Net-A-Porter may be up for sale again and word is that it has a very high-profile buyer. Amazon is reportedly in talks with the e-tailer, negotiating a deal in the ballpark of $2.19 billion. The move could be very good for Amazon, which has shown quite a keen interest in building a presence in the fashion industry and entering the luxury market. The company launched the Amazon Fashion website about three years ago and its MyHabit and East Dane brands are sponsoring this summer’s New York Fashion Week: Men’s

Net-a-Porter has been under the Richemont umbrella since 2010, and some people wonder how long the company, which owns luxury labels Cartier, Chloé, Azzedine Alaïa, Van Cleef & Arpels and more, will want to keep the Internet-based retailer in the fold. Indeed, Net-a-Porter does seem to be a little out of place when you consider the other brands on the Richemont roster.

Neither Richemont nor Amazon would confirm rumors of the negotiation.

The Kardashian-Jenner takeover of the fashion industry continues with young Kendall who is the new face of Calvin Klein. Rumors that the reality star-cum-model had signed on with the brand have been swirling and today we get confirmation that Ms. Jenner indeed has been cast in the label’s latest campaign. 

Jenner appears in ads for #mycalvins Denim Series, a sporty, limited-edition offering that combines both street and athletic wear. Kendall and Simon Nessman pose together for the Alasdair McLellan-lensed campaign, with Jenner casting sleepy glances to the camera as she feigns intensity with a head of wet hair. 

“Modeling for Calvin Klein Jeans is really a dream come true,” said Jenner in a press release. “I’ve grown up wearing the brand and seeing the iconic advertising in magazines and on billboards featuring some of the world’s top supermodels. To now be a part of that legacy is truly an honor.”

Calvin Klein’s Denim Series will be available in stores and online at Opening Ceremony starting April 15, with prices ranging from $58 to $348. Check out images from the campaign below.  (more…)

Abbey Lee Kershaw Delivers the Goods on Vogue Korea’s ‘Stunning’ April Cover (Forum Buzz)

We are often left overwhelmed with what Vogue Korea delivers us every month. The magazine pushes its design team to its limits (even Coco Rocha backed the publication up on Instagram this week), giving us unconventional cover images and refusing to jump on the bandwagon regarding the latest cover models. Abbey Lee Kershaw graces the magazine’s April 2015 cover, photographed by Rafael Stahelin with Ye Young Kim on styling duties. But we assume that Abbey was not about to pick up those buckets of paint in the background, while wearing that chic, all-white Ralph Lauren number.


“April Come She Will~” Vogue Korea April Issue!

Needless to say, our forum members were impressed and began to sing Vogue Korea’s praises right away. “Beautiful! The colors add something to it,” MON complimented immediately.

“So lovely, Abbey looks incredibly gorgeous on this cover,” added TeeVanity.

Also full of enthusiasm was yesitsdagny: “This cover just reminded me why I love Abbey as a model. She is stunning, fierce and [a] completely captivating person! Amazing cover.”

“Really love the vibe of this cover. And ABBEY!!” raved cutepongki, sharing the exact same sentiments.

Benn98 felt the same way, echoing, “Omg, I’m reminded of the Abbey when she just started. This is a welcoming break from the Rag & Bone suicide blonde we’ve seen the past few years. I love the laid-back and natural vibe and colors of this shot. She actually looks feminine and season appropriate.”

“I like the way there’s a lifestyle story to the shot, but given that she’s wearing all-white, I’m guessing she wasn’t the one doing the painting,” tigerrouge laughed.

“I applaud Vogue Korea for pushing the boundaries on what a cover shot looks like. This is refreshing and modern. Abbey Lee looks stunning!” appreciated Nepenthes.

Grace Jones was possibly one of the most fascinating women of the 70s and 80s, an icon beloved for her androgynous looks and daring approach to modeling. Now, the fashion muse and singer is getting her very own documentary, courtesy of the BBC, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Grace Jones – the Musical of My Life is an inside look at the life of the 66-year-old Jamaican fashion icon, directed by Sophie Fiennes.

Jones became the toast of Paris after moving there in the 70s, working for designers like Azzedine Alaïa, Yves Saint Laurent and Kenzo. She was also a muse for photographer Jean Paul Goude, with whom she had a child, posing for some of his most famous images.

From lighting up the stage with dance hits like Slave to the Rhythmto being the subject of some of fashion’s most memorable photos, it is only fitting that the legendary Ms. Jones is (finally!) getting a documentary. And we can’t wait to see it.

A shopper does not a designer make, but a lawyer? Wonderfully so. JOLIE was founded by former lawyer Ivy Chen, who swapped late nights with legal files for late nights with leather. “The legal world seems glamorous, especially on TV, but it’s totally different from fashion — I don’t regret it for one second,” she says of launching her line of streamlined leather carry-on bags with rolling wheels and multi-compartments.

Must Watch: Serena Williams Does Beyoncé’s ‘7/11’ Music Video

We can all agree that Beyoncé’s homemade music video for “7/11” is fantastic. It is hard to bring anything Bey does to the next level (because well, duh, it’s Beyoncé), but we think Serena Williams may have done exactly just that.

The Vogue cover star filmed her own tennis-themed version of the music video along with a few of her pals, her dog and of course, a camera-equipped tennis racket in tow. We see Ms. Williams spinning with her foot up, busting a move through the hallways of the BallenIsles Country Club in Palm Beach, Florida and smack, smack, smacking those tennis balls like she don’t care. 

Filmed with a GoPro camera, Serena may have just made the best “7/11” parody ever. Watch it above.
