Emma Mulholland Brings Her 80s Surf Game to Sunglasses


Image: Imaxtree

Emma Mulholland makes her own rules. If others are looking to minimalism, she’ll look to iguanas fighting in the Mexican desert. It is fitting then, that as most of us are heading into winter, she’s designing a line of sunglasses.

You've seen the shades from a distance already. They were on the runway at her show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, along with many other eye-catching pieces. In between the binder clip bags, wig hats and pastel sequined swimsuits, it was often difficult to know where to look. (Artful eye assault is a recurring theme for the designer.)

But those shades though. They’re part of a collaboration with local label Pared, and look so much better up close. Riffing off the same 80s John Huges and Melanie Griffiths' Working Girl inspirations as the rest of the collection, some skew simple, with classic fronts, subtly mirrored lenses and lightning bolt arms, while others staunchly have the look of 80s surf and street culture.

Best of all? You can buy them now. Pair with a bowl cut wig for peak Mulholland girl steez

Mert & Marcus Photograph Gucci’s Pre-Fall Campaign With a ‘Basic’ Result (Forum Buzz)

Gucci regulars Anja Rubik and Clement Chabernaud are back fronting the Italian fashion house's Pre-Fall advertising campaign. The ads are lensed by Turkish duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, who aren't exactly strangers to Gucci either. They've stripped the campaign this season, going right back to basics with no gimmicks and zero signs of heavy post-production. Anja and Clement are seen posing in a studio, against a classic grey background to complement the vibrant clothes designed by Frida Giannini.

Gucci Pre-Fall 2014 Campaign Anja Clement


Forum members are not letting the new direction go down easy. "I cannot believe how basic these Gucci campaigns have become. The last one I absolutely loved was Spring 2013. Everything after that has been so uninspired and underwhelming," writes valliaddict.

"This is soooo boring. Like everybody said, it looks like a lookbook, and not even for an A-list brand like Gucci," commented anlabe32 who went on to say, "That said, Anja and Clement look nice. And so does the clothing."

Check out the thread and some more images from the campaign here.

Michelle Obama Joins Fashion’s Elite to Celebrate Met Gala Day: The Best of Instagram

Today at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, New York's fashion industry is celebrating the new Anna Wintour Costume Institute, which opens with an exhibition about the work of mid-century designer Charles James, commonly known as  "America's First Couturier."

Wearing a dress by Naeem Khan, First Lady Michelle Obama cut the ribbon at the new institute's opening ceremony. FLOTUS also announced the launch of a new fashion workshop for students, which she'll be bringing to the White House as part of a joint effort with Anna Wintour

As expected, Twitter and Instagram are boiling over with Met-related shares. The Internet is blessed. We'll be bringing you highlights over the course of Met Day, so keep checking back! 


Their love is real:

Name in stone. Accompanying caption: "Now she's in a museum?! This is a lot to live up to…"

Another win for the flower lobby:

Oh, this old thing?

"Reserved for Victoria Beckham."

The waiter's face.

Marc Jacobs is working a new, Peewee-esque look.

Put this one in the yearbook:

And theFashionSpot is currently in the Charles James galleries, previewing the exhibition, so make sure to follow us on Instagram:

Not to be outdone by FLOTUS and VOGUEUS, Cara Delevingne and Stella McCartney are getting super adorable ahead of tonight's festivities.

A quiet moment with Bill Cunningham:

Zac Posen piques our interest: "Thank you to the Zac Posen atelier for creating the most amazing creations for tonight's Met Gala I am so excited to see them worn tonight! Can't wait for all the followers to see. Can you guess who's wearing us tonight?"

Kendall Jenner in the back of a town car on the day of the Met Ball. Somehow feels like a modern version of the board game Clue.

I feel very positive about whatever's happening at Prabal Gurung's atelier right now. 

Happens to the best of us.

André Leon Talley Wears the Infamous Pharrell Hat to the Anna Wintour Costume Center Ribbon Cutting

Who knew on that fateful day back in February, when Pharrell Williams hit the Grammys red carpet in a Smokey the Bear-style Vivienne Westwood hat, that the topper would become the most talked-about headpiece of the year? Well, maybe a couple people could tell. But in no way did we expect to see the hat so much in the months after, mainly in a few different colorways on Pharrell, and now, on André Leon Talley.

The former Numéro Russia editor was seated front row this morning for the ribbon cutting ceremony of the newly-named Anna Wintour Costume Center at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, wearing what appears to be a black or navy version of the infamous hat. A couple eagle-eyed guests (like Rachel Roy and W Arts & Culture director Anne Sloway) spied the editor in the hat, posting snaps aplenty to Instagram.

This seems to be the hat that will never die. But if anyone was going to wear it after Pharrell (a really tough act to follow), it would have to be ALT, wouldn't it? A man who rocks a kimono on the reg can pretty much wear anything.

Steven Meisel Photographs Lexi Boling for Vogue Italia’s May Cover (Forum Buzz)

Model of the moment and current Prada face, Lexi Boling, has landed Vogue Italia's May cover. The American model has become a regular choice for Steven Meisel, who also shot Lexi for Prada's recent accessories campaign. For Italian Vogue's latest, Boling is posing against a dark background, with the focus very much on her beauty and the styling of her hair. It's no wonder Meisel shot a close-up of this girl, after Guido worked his magic on her hair and Pat McGrath did the makeup for this 'look of the moment' shoot. Karl Templer styled Lexi in a top from Tod's.

"What is this, an outtake from Prada Pre-Fall campaign?" questioned Zorka.

"Looks like a boring Prada image," wrote Bruce7Lee.

Nymphaea thought the cover resembled a past Vogue Italia cover: "Nice simple cover, same vibe as Doutzen's VI cover but a tad more modern."

"Finally! I find this cover sooo gorgeous, but that might be all because of Lexi," commented anlabe32.

Miss Dalloway was also enthusiastic and wrote, "Simple but sooo lovely, I adore this! And amazing to see Lexi get a cover on her own, she rocked the runway season!"

So, there are mixed reactions from our forum members and I feel the same. This does look like it was taken just moments after the recent Prada campaign. On the other hand, I'm such a sucker for anything shot in a studio–especially when it's been photographed by Steven Meisel.
