H&M Collaborates with Liberty for a Printastic Menswear Offering

We love it when Swedish retailer H&M teams up with a designer and gives us all the chance to purchase a high-end looking piece at a fraction of the price — and the latest in the collaboration pipeline is Liberty. The quintessentially British department store with a contemporary edge is renowned for being an emporium for innovative and eclectic designs, and is a must-see for those visiting London.

Liberty is most well-known for its unique prints covering everything from scarves to books, spanning both classic heritage to reinterpreted archival patterns. Unfortunately for us ladies, the H&M x Liberty collaboration will be menswear only, covering shirts, handkerchiefs and a bow tie, costing around 15 to 50 euros each. But we’re pretty sure that we could at least pull off one of the shirts if we fall in love with the print enough!

The prints in question aim to mix classic Liberty patterns with current trends and we can’t wait to see the final pieces. The capsule collection will be available in September in select stores internationally.

Patrick Robinson Ousted at Armani Exchange

It seems as if Patrick Robinson can't catch a break. The designer was famously fired from his position as head designer at The Gap in 2011 after the label began to experience slowing sales under his leadership. He kicked around for a while after that with Pashko, a crowd-funded fashion line he sold through Kickstarter. It seemed Robinson finally regained his footing in 2013 when he was named creative director at Armani Exchange, but according to Page Six, Robinson has just been let go from that gig, too.

While sources say that Robinson was fired over a dip in sales, others say it was a copyright infringement issue with David Yurman that did him in. The "Torc" bracelet, designed for Armani Exchange's men's collection, bore a striking similarity to Yurman's popular cable cuff bracelets. 

Yurman's people allegedly contacted Robinson with a cease-and-desist letter, but other sources say that it was mainly lackluster sales that got him booted, though "this issue was the smoking gun.” An official statement from Armani Exchange, says that bracelet-gate had no bearing on the decision to axe Robinson. "Patrick Robinson left the brand amicably several weeks ago. His departure and this alleged claim of the Yurman’s sending us a cease-and-desist letter are entirely unrelated.”

Fendi Makes Headphones with Beats by Dre

These past few months have been big for Beats by Dre. The company was recently purchased by Apple, making founder Dr. Dre that much closer to becoming hip-hop's first billionaire. But before his accounts enter the nine-figure mark, Beats has scooped up another high fashion collaboration. Fendi's teamed up with them on a range of headphones, a sampling which showed during the label's menswear show earlier today.

The collection will offer over-the-ear leather headphones stamped with the Fendi emblem in a range of colors: red, yellow, blue, black, green and gray, with a black croco option if you're fancy. As for pricing, nothing's set in stone but according to a Fendi spokesperson, you might have to shill out about $1,300 for a pair. To borrow a phrase from Drake: that's luxury, dawg.

You won't be able to get your hands on them until later this year, but they are pretty swagged out.

Mert & Marcus Return to Shoot Second Ferragamo Fall 2014 Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

After photographing Daria Werbowy for the brand's Spring 2014 ads, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott have made a welcomed return to shoot Salvatore Ferragamo's Fall 2014 campaign. This time around, the Turkish duo shot models Mariacarla Boscono, Amanda Muprhy, Suvi Koponen and male models Felix Hermans and Jason Anthony to don pieces from Ferragamo's latest collection. Set against a saturated background of purple and blue skies before a field of vibrant flowers, the campaign is slated to surface in major fashion titles soon.

Members of theFashionSpot forums are undecided about which model stands out. "All I can see is Amanda. Suvi is so out of place with that hair… Seeing blond bothers me for the first time ever, but it just doesn't work," comments Creative.

"MCB stole the show once again, Amanda looks like she's in pain and Suvi is meh…" wrote Mrs.T.

Wolkfolk is biased towards Amanda Murphy and posted, "Amanda is the star here for me. I don't know if it's the red lips (besides being utterly gorgeous as always) but my eyes go straight to her and only her."

"As odd as it may sound, I think they all work well together. But once again MCB just steals these two shots but overall I love this," enthused TheoG.

Forum member valliaddict is undecided, however: "I really like the setting, but the styling and cast seem so disjointed. You have Suvi with blonde hair, Amanda with red lipstick and MCB with a matte face all in one shot. It makes no sense. I think they should've just given everyone their own shots and not put them together."

Who's your favorite? Or do you love them all together? Check out the full campaign and join the discussion here.

Lindsey Wixson Scores Vogue Japan’s Spangly August Cover (Forum Buzz)

Lindsey Wixson is Vogue Japan's August 2014 cover girl (curiously mislabeled in the image below as July 2014). Giampaolo Sgura photographed the American model who stands before a white background wearing a sequined dress from Saint Laurent's Fall 2014 collection, which was styled by Anna Dello Russo. Wixson, Sgura and Russo have worked together before on numerous projects, so it's no wonder we're seeing Wixson score her second cover of Japanese Vogue.

Forum member burbuja8910 suggests Sgura's previous covers for Vogue Japan haven't been up to scratch and wrote, "Finally a good cover [from] Sgura."

"It's a cool cover for VP. I actually like it," enthused fashionlover2001.

"Every month I [expected] to see one thing and that Chiharu… I should stop getting my hopes up. But I don't mind the cover, not really all that fond of Giampaolo photography. The font doesn't bother me, I guess it's what gives Vogue Japan identity and the fact that it's in Japanese," shared TheoG.

The attitude soon changed within the thread when MoniqValentino posted, "Ohh , I don't like it. Everything is bad for me. I'm not a fan of Lindsey, and this font is horrible…"

"I guess I have a problem with a white background on a cover. Terribly boring. Awful dress. I don't mind the Vogue font but this is simply not the type of cover that I like," commented Valentine27.

How Long Until Pharrell Williams Wears This Vivienne Westwood Spring 2015 Top Hat?

Closing out Men's Fashion Week in Milan was Vivienne Westwood, who put forth a lively selection for the guys next spring. The show wasn't without its usual quirkiness and we know Dame V. loves a tall topper–but we think this piece she dreamed up for Fall 2015 might be particularly appealing to a certain Mr. Pharrell Williams, who will not rest until he wears every version of her now-iconic mountain hat

Skateboard P. can't be expected to roll around all summer wearing that heavy felt fabric. And as a man with pretty badass style, he's certain to want to switch up his swag  every once in a while. This straw top hat from Westwood's Spring 2015 collection is pretty much calling his name. "Pharrell, baby when we hitting the BET Awards?" 

It's the perfect accessory for one of those short suits he's so crazy about.
