Richard Nicoll Won’t Show at London Fashion Week Next Month

The British Fashion Awards 2014

After the disappointing news that designer Richard Nicoll wouldn’t be showcasing at London Collections: Men this season, we’ve learned that he’s pulling out of London Fashion Week’s Fall 2015 schedule.

Nicoll is loved for his one-size-fits-all trademark, his geometric cuts and use of inventive fabrics, but it seems that the difficult world of fashion has swallowed him up somewhat. In a recent interview with WWD, Nicoll explained that he’s found the increased number of seasons and commercial pressures difficult to deal with. So much so that he said, “I felt the need to pause and think of the best and most relevant way forward for now.”

In light of his honest words, it seems that the designer is taking a much needed break to revise his business strategy and gather a bit of design inspiration, but rest assured that he promises to relaunch his label for Resort 2016. We’re sure that celebrity fans, like Daisy Lowe, will be eagerly counting down the days.

Naomi Campbell Nailed Her Debut on Empire Last Night

Model, reality TV star and now primetime actress Naomi Campbell made her debut on Fox’s new show Empire last night. And while the appearance was glorious, it was all too brief.

Naomi plays Camilla, secret girlfriend of Hakeem, the young son of Empire record executive Lucious Lyon played by Terrence Howard, who’s poised to inherit the company. The model makes a grand entrance in a nightclub (with that signature walk, of course) rocking a gold sequin jumpsuit. Later in the episode, we see her making out with her shirtless young thang as she requests for him to be more public about their relationship. Her intentions do seem a bit suspicious — she seems to be quite focused on Hakeem’s possible takeover of the record label, so we’re expecting quite a bit of drama to unfold on that front.

Producer and co-creator Lee Daniels said we were in for a “beautiful” performance from Ms. Campbell. Not that we would know from this one episode since she was in it for probably less than five minutes. Still, we look forward to seeing more of Naomi (she appears in four episodes) living her best life and making out with boys half her age who call her mama.

Chanel Hits the Road in 2015 with Shows in NYC, Seoul and Rome

We hope Karl Lagerfeld’s private plane is all fueled up because he will be doing a lot of traveling this year now that Chanel has announced it will put on shows in New York City, Seoul and Rome. The French fashion house is set to show its Paris-Salzburg Métiers d’Art show again in New York City come March 31. There is no word as to whether or not the models from the first show, namely Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner, will be walking this time around, but it should be quite a spectacle, as Chanel shows tend to be.

In May, Chanel will be off to Seoul to present the cruise collection at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza, a cultural center housing shops, conference and art halls, as well as a wealth of other spaces. Architects Zaha Hadid and Samoo designed the building, which looks like something out of a Star Trek movie with its fluid shape. 

Come December 1, the label will show its Métiers d’Art collection in Rome. 

That’s quite a few stamps for the Chanel passport!

Mixed Reactions for Steven Klein’s New Jimmy Choo Spring 2015 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Theoretically, Jimmy Choo’s new Spring 2015 advertising images come complete with all the right components for a successful campaign. The luxury accessory brand tapped an established photographer, worthy models (including actor Kit Harington, who also stars in Jimmy Choo’s Man fragrance campaign) and more importantly, the accessories take center stage. It sounds ideal, right? Although a handful of our forum members aren’t so convinced.

“Ondria doesn’t fit this vibe at all…” gossiping disapproved.

“Awful. What [did] they do with beautiful Ondria? She looks so bad here,” added narcyza.

MON shared the same sentiments: “Ondria, sadly, didn’t bring any energy to this campaign. Ugh this could pass as a U.S. Vogue feature.”

“Carolyn Murphy or Amber Valletta would have killed this!” suggested Chanelcouture09, who went on to say, “I do still love it though, I think he’s an interesting choice and he looks fantastic. I actually want the shoes he has on in his second picture posted in the first post…they’re just lovely.”

Things soon started to shape up. “Very Terminator vibe, I’m not sure about the execution. Kit looks very good in his shots. Not too sure about Ondria. I like only her eyeglass shot,” posted Benn98.

“This is so, Steven Klein…I Love It!” raved justaguy, admiring the fact Klein lensed the campaign.

Also enthusiastic about the campaign was kokobombon: “Very Klein, I´m loving this. Way better than the past few seasons, finally an interesting direction.”

Court Rules in Favor of Rihanna in Topshop Infringement Case

Rihanna’s got something to celebrate today as Britain’s Court of Appeal has ruled in favor of the singer in that Topshop lawsuit. RiRi sued the British retailer for selling T-shirts with her likeness without her permission.

The shot was an image of the singer from her “We Found Love” music video, which the courts said was the retailer’s way of “passing off” the shirt as something authorized by Rihanna. The shirt hit Topshop shelves in 2012 and after a long session in court, the decision that the retailer infringed upon RiRi’s rights is final.

We suppose next time Topshop will carefully consider the pros and cons of using any star’s likeness in the future without asking first.

Karl Lagerfeld Teases Kendall Jenner Spring Campaign

Kendall Jenner just keeps raking in the campaigns. This time, she’s been tapped by Karl Lagerfeld’s namesake brand for its Spring 2015 ads, and today the fashion house released a behind-the-scenes video featuring the 19-year-old buzzy model. 

 

You guessed right, this season @kendalljenner is #TeamKarl in the #KARLLAGERFELD #SS15 campaign making of!

A video posted by Karl (@karllagerfeld) on

In the short, we see Kendall taking selfies with the kaiser, donning colorful sunglasses and (naturally) fingerless gloves, urging us to “think pink” this season since, you know, she loves the color so much. Kendall puts on her best cutesy (hand over the mouth, smiling-gasping) and somber (working her best Blue Steel) poses, showing the range of looks she’s learned to serve the camera in her time as a model. Reactions to the video, which the brand posted on Instagram, range from praise hand to poop emojis. One commenter called the casting “a sin worse than wearing sweatpants.” A little harsh, no? Sweatpants are really comfortable…and totally chic when you pair them with heels.

Looks like 2015 is shaping up to be the year of Kendall Jenner — whether people like it or not. Check out a few images from the campaign below.
