Friday Fashion Fix

19 Aug

Edward Enninful and Lori Goldstein’s first W magazine issue. 

The all-star September 2011 issue of W marks the first full issue with Edward Enninful as the fashion and style director and Lori Goldstein as style editor-at-large. Collaborating with photographers such as Mario Sorrenti, Steven Klein and Mert & Marcus shooting the creme de la creme of the modelling world including Amber Valletta, Sasha Pivovarova, Freja Beha, Lara Stone, Raquel Zimmermann, Jessica Stam….ok I’ll stop there. You know this is one September issue not to miss.

Giambattista Valli for Macys.

Wow, Macys is stepping it up and shifting into the fashion fast lane. Hot on the heels of their collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld comes news of a super collab with Giambattista Valli in October, just in time to bring us pretty party dresses for our Christmas parties. Priced between $50-150, the collection comprises of cocktail dresses, skirts and blouses as well as jackets, trousers and graphic tees. I’m hoping for the luxe label’s signature brights and texture. And that they ship internationally! The collaboration is a good move, Giambattista Valli is a little under the radar and will appeal to a different, more discerning fashion market. 

Kate Bosworth for Vanessa Bruno.

Kate Bosworth looks so beautiful in the Vanessa Bruno campaign, the perfect fit for this Nordic-inspired collection.

Victoria’s Secret opening in the UK. 

Major news! Boux Avenue, La Senza et al, you better step your game up, Victoria’s Secret is landing on Bond Street next year and I can’t wait. Let’s hope that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and the other Angels put on a Victoria’s Secret show for London to mark the occasion. 


Karl Lagerfeld for Macys collection

11 Aug

Earlier on, I posted about the Karl Lagerfeld for Macys collection, his latest venture into affordable fashion after the H&M collaboration a few years ago. The overall look of the collection is different to the preview campaign shots I posted, there are plenty of Karl trademarks from the mainly monochrome colour palette to the high collars. There are elements of Chanel as well as more girly, floral pieces. The 45-piece limited edition collection will hit Macy’s stores as well as the website later this month. What do you think of the collection, will it cause queues and be an instant sell out like his collection for H&M?

If the sketches I posed in my Friday Fashion Fix post whet your whistle for more from Karl Lagerfeld’s collection for Macys then your luck is in. A couple of images have been released which give a taster of his latest cut price collection. The 45 piece collection will his 235 Macys stores and the website on August 31st and prices range from $50 to $170. This pretty dress is $109 and is very girly and romantic, very different to Karl’s collection with H&M almost seven years ago.
