On tap for apparel are plenty of basics and wardrobe classics: smart button-downs that can be dressed up or worn casually and slouchy T-shirts with animal drawings. In fact, animals are a huge motif throughout the entire ED range, popping up on everything from shirt pockets to plates. For apparel, the cheapest thing you can get right now is a $35 solid crewneck tee, which you can pair with the most expensive clothing item, a blazer for $245.

DeGeneres’ homewares include coasters, glasses, bowls for everyday eating and entertaining, placemats, pitchers and more. Prices peak at $365 for an already-sold-out handmade decoupage cake platter made in collaboration with John Derian and start at $25 for a bottle topper.

ED has certainly got all the stuff that will appeal to the average American for whom simplicity reigns. You can check out everything the store has to offer at

Hold onto your wallets folks because Mansur Gavriel is about to, once again, give you major bag lust. The CFDA Award-winning design duo has teamed up with Colette Paris for their first international collaboration. Just in time for Couture Fashion Week, Colette will be selling a limited-edition version of the brand’s famous bucket bag. This time, Mansur Gavriel has reimagined the carryall in metallic blue with pony hair print.

The bag will go up for sale starting July 6 and will set you back $700 (or 635 euros). Mansur Gavriel’s bags are famous for selling like hotcakes and we have little doubt that this rather attractive version of the bag will follow suit.

Louis Vuitton Recycles Same Old Concept for New Campaign (Forum Buzz)

We’re starting to become increasingly bored with the Fall 2015 campaigns. From predictable castings to lame outcomes, Louis Vuitton now becomes the topic of discussion as its new mainline campaign starts to trickle out. Nicolas Ghesquière delivers the same old concept, asking back Bruce Weber and Juergen Teller to lens the images, which so far feature Jennifer ConnellyAlicia VikanderRianne Van Rompaey and Fernanda Hin Lin Ly.

“Nice shots but honestly I am getting bored by this ‘series’ thing,” exclaimed Ed the second the thread opened.

“I’m tired of their concept it’s like Céline it is so boring. Why do brands not want to change their campaigns each season anymore? Saving money or something? No ideas left?” asked a frustrated gossiping.

Sharing the same sentiments was GivenchyHomme: “Can they just ditch this stupid concept once and for all and hire Sims or Meisel.”

MON felt the same way and echoed, “At least the campaign reflects the new identity of the house: boring. The series concept is tiring. I need something new from them.”

Also disappointed was TaylorBlinque: “This is very dull. After Patrick’s stunning campaign [for Resort 2015], I was hoping for something different.”

“I’m a bit bored with this concept although the campaign is looking very nice,” shared justaguy, shedding a glimmer of light on the campaign.

Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears‘ “Pretty Girls” film clip may have over 78 million views on YouTube, but that hasn’t translated to a good ranking on the music charts. The song has only hit number 29 on Billboard’s Hottest 100 since it was released in May, and now the pair are getting a little shady with one another, publicly.

It all started when Twitter user @rhuancesarr tweeted that the tune “flopped a little bit”, to which Iggy responded, “Its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. unfortunately im just featured…” (more…)
