Cara Delevingne Walked Exclusively for Fendi Just to Model Karl Lagerfeld’s Stupid Fur Doll

Wearing a fitted black puffer coat with a fur hood and "snow boots," earlier today Cara Delevingne appeared in her Milan exclusive, opening the Fendi Fall 2014 show. The British model followed her Giles video selfie with another runway gimmick: she carried a furball resembling Karl Lagerfeld which had a camera hidden inside.

The Internet was beside itself, for reasons related to Cara's enormous popularity and the profound marketability of Lagerfeld's narcissism. But I object. Yes, Delevingne's celebrity surpasses her currency as a pure fashion model and yes, catwalk presentations are giant publicity-generating organs for brands, but runway shows are supposed to at least pretend to be about the label's creative vision. But of all the Fendi Fall 2014 looks, this one will be the most widely distributed of the entire runway show. And look at what she's wearing: a coat. What's the fashion here? What's the story? "It's winter. Also something about Karl Lagerfeld and Fendi fur." Such creativity.

Flashback: A Platnium Blonde Kate Moss Covers Vogue Paris February 2001

I only started to collect fashion magazines during the spring of 2005 and ever since, I have regretted not starting earlier. Now, I'm forever on the hunt for back issues. I happened to stumble across a copy of the February 2001 issue of Vogue Paris on an online auction site last week and haven't been able to put it down, fawning over the content with countless cups of tea. For me, this issue has always been iconic, so I was delighted to eventually own a copy.

The monochrome cover features a platinum blonde Kate Moss wearing a white Balenciaga dress, photographed by Mario Testino and styled by the newly-appointed Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld.



The issue boasts 268 pages and features fashion stories from Mario Testino, Terry Richardson, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Nathaniel Goldberg and Thomas Schenk.

An editorial entitled "Noir Blanc" photographed by Testino featuring models Kate Moss and Delfine Bafort with styling by Roitfeld is the highlight of the issue. The 20-page story consists of Moss and Bafort wearing black and white ensembles with a hint of nudity in a few shots. The story is very tastefully done and is a credit to Roitfeld's work.

Check out "Noir Blanc" and the rest of the issue's content here.

Richard Nicoll Takes On New Role as Creative Director of Jack Wills

Yes, you read that right, the London Fashion Week favourite Richard Nicoll is taking the reigns at the University Outfitters themselves, Jack Wills.

The Saint Martin’s alumnus is known for his clean, sophisticated aesthetic, often playing with androgynous silhouettes and masculine tailoring whilst Jack Wills, although being a ‘fabulously British’ brand, definitely occupies a different place in our fashion minds.

Famed for its social activity more than its clothing, Jack Wills is synonymous with students and laid-back ready-to-wear, yet with the demise of its older sister brand ‘Aubin and Wills’ in 2012, perhaps this is an opportunity to bring the brand into the minds and wardrobes of an older and more affluent generation.

Nicoll will only be working on a part-time basis, but the British brand is very excited with this collaboration. CEO of Jack Wills Wendy Becker said, "His collections have global appeal, but he is a British designer at heart and will lead the creative direction of our brand into its next important phase. His aesthetic and talent in designing for both men and women will be a great match for our future vision for Jack Wills and reinforces our commitment to having quality and design at our heart."

Similarly, Nicoll is anticipating great things for his forthcoming new position saying, "I'm excited to be working with Jack Wills, this is an opportunity to take a successful British design aesthetic and drive forward the product and vision. Wendy has exciting plans to evolve the Jack Wills brand and I am looking forward to being a part of that."

With a combination of such contrasting creative visions, it will be interesting to see how this partnership turns out and what effect Richard Nicoll will have on the heavily established branding of Jack Wills.

Vivienne Westwood: ‘It’s the Most Life Enhancing Thing to Dress Up’ [Video]

Vivienne Westwood's London runway show is always one of the most spectacular of the season and this year, to celebrate both her Fall 2014 collection and her extraordinary career, our pals at Dazed invited Dame Westwood to take over its website. The publication filmed a series of exclusive videos dedicated to the British designer's life and loves — fashion, the environment and activism.

Below, watch Westwood discuss her role as one of London's leading punk figures ("Malcolm McLaren and myself invented punk") her fashion dream world ("The concept that you're working towards, it's a sort of bubble. A parallel world to this one, but where people look better") and her love of clothes: 

"I always liked clothes, of course. I think most people do. It's only when they grow up they decide they don't like clothes. Because they got too fat or something…Or whatever. People have reasons, for saying they don't like clothes. To me, it's the most life-enhancing thing is to dress up. "

Prada Teams Up with Edward Enninful to Revive ‘The Iconoclasts’ Project in Milan

Tomorrow night in Milan, Prada launches a revival of its 'The Iconoclasts' project. The campaign works with top stylists to render new stylings of the label's collections, transforming Prada store boutiques with conceptual installations.

For the latest installment of the project, W Magazine's fashion and style director Edward Enninful imagined Prada's Spring 2014 men's and women's collections in the context of the Harlem Renaissance. 

Miuccia Prada’s work always begins with a conversation," said Enninful. "Drawing from this notion, I looked to the ‘Harlem Renaissance’ for the SS14 installment of The Iconoclasts series. As the ‘Harlem Renaissance’ was a period of original thought – when creative minds inspired and embraced a new cultural identity – I felt that this was an appropriate narrative to incorporate into this season’s Prada collection."

Enninful's stylings will be installed on mannequins at the men's and women's Prada stores on Monte Napoleone through February 24. The women's store will be transformed into "an imagined 1920s club – complete with glittering art-deco bar, evoking the atmosphere of Harlem." The men's store has been set up as a backroom lounge, with game tables and a jazz trio. 

The installation will be on display through February 24 and will include new fashion images (previewed here) by Emma Summerton.
