Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz has teamed up with none other than Minnie Mouse for the fashion house’s latest collaboration. To celebrate Disneyland Paris’ 20th anniversary, Elbaz has teamed up with Minnie Mouse, via a letter from Mickey Mouse, to create a one-off custom piece for the occasion. Using a rich blue hued neoprene covered in gunmetal grey crystals and embellishments with ruby red accents and a chic A-line shift dress, it is a modern day Minnie with a retro twist.

Watch the video below, Minnie gets a makeover!

LONG LIVE MCQUEEN

Today marks three years since the passing of legendary designer Lee Alexander Mcqueen. A pioneer of fashion, a genius with cut and a mastermind of creativity, there will never be another like Alexander McQueen. The brand lives after the brains and hands of the brand passed, but the spark is gone, the creative flame no longer flickering.

In his legacy, we remember a time when McQueen brought a side of fashion that no one else did; he brought desire, fear, enchantment, melancholy and endless amounts of innovative and phenomenal art.

LONG LIVE MCQUEEN.

WE’VE FOUND NEMO

… And it’s been wreaking havoc in New Yawwk for Fashion Week. Many members of Fashion’s elite set have been no doubt panicking in their Louboutins this week, which they refuse to take off in the trechorous NY weather. Storms and blizzards aside however, this fashion week so far has brought much drama, glamour and gorgeousness to the fashion world! More blogs to come from this season so far from NYC! I cant wait to share my favourite shows!

Even a blizzard won’t stop the fash pack from rocking the Blahniks.

TANGERINE MCQUEEN

Orange for Spring? Turn to Alexander McQueen for your go-to designer for this season’s hottest hue! Rich tangerine, the most supple leather and typical Mcqueen tailoring all embody the essence of both traditional McQueen and the coolest shade for Spring/Summer. Now we just need the weather, the sun is this trend’s most complimentary accessory.

SPRING FRESH: ANGLOMANIA S/S13

Vivienne Westwood’s Anglomania collection unveiled their lookbook for Spring/Summer 2013, and I LOVEITSOMUCHIWANTITALLOMG. *sigh*

These pieces are all PERFECT. I don’t need to say much about them, you’ll see for yourselves. But the colours, Westwood-cuts, styling, just EVERYTHING.

I need to win the lottery, like now.

FASHION WEEK

So today was the start of New York Fashion Week for the A/W2013 collections! Every fashion lover everywhere is no doubt doing the same as me: constantly on Twitter/Instagram/Style.com/The Cut etc etc. checking for updates!

This season’s collections is sure to bring some surprises, not just in NYC. With much anticipated shows from Oscar de la Renta (with the arrival of John Galliano at the fashion house, read about that here), Alexander Wang’s debut collection at Balenciaga, the second collections from Raf Simons for Dior and Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent Paris, Jil Sander’s return to Jil Sander, Tom Ford’s return to the runway in London as well as McQueen’s presentation sans Sarah Burton (maternity leave).

No doubt this season’s collections will bring many a drama, a great dosage of expensive taste, many lashings of fashion excitement and a mile-long wish list of coveted items.

Let the Fashion Week mania commence!

MARCHESA FOR THE DAYTIME

Marchesa cofounders Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig have expanded their exclusively formalwear brand and introduced a daywear collection. The design duo have named their line Marchesa Vogage, joining their bridal collection and their line of cocktail dresses under the moniker Notte. With bohemian references as well as the first-hand experience of both designers being pregnant with their second child, it is no doubt going to be a collection of glamour-for-the-daytime, and the line being priced at a very reasonable price range of $100-$400. According to WWD, nothing in the collection is plain or basic, in true Marchesa style, and no doubt this more accessible and wearable line is still just as covetable as the high-end red carpet dress line.

The collection includes printed silks, furs, embellished denim and pieces with extensive embroidery, Chapman explained at a recent preview of the collection:

We felt like we needed it to have personality. There would have to be a reason for someone to buy it… Something Keren and I had always wanted to do was a loungewear deal – the Marchesa in her palazzo.”

I can’t wait to see the rest of this collection! Affordable Marchesa?!

MJ FOR DIET COKE

Marc Jacobs has been named as the 2013 creative director for Diet Coke. Following the footsteps of Karl Lagerfeld (2011) and Jean Paul Gaultier (2012), Jacobs will design three cans, three bottles and star in three ad campaigns for the iconic drink’s brand. Referencing the most iconic and memorable looks and female empowerment from the eighties, nineties and 2000s, the three cans, bottles and campaigns will represent the corresponding theme.

Can we please just take a moment of appreciation for this… He’s almost 50. FIFTY. Ugh.

According to WWD, the creations will be unveiled this month, with Jacobs even tampering with the Diet Coke logo.
