More Pierre Hardy Shoes - Preview Gap SS10


Just as we're beginning to fill our wardrobes with the gorgeous AW09 collection from high-street superstar Gap, they showcase their collection for the coming Spring and give us yet more Pierre Hardy shoes to lust after, this time in the form of cutesy tie-up espadrille wedges. The collection uses florals, pastels and patchwork denim to get us thinking ahead to our springtime buys, making for a well needed break from Wintery darks and severe structure.

Joe Corre, Founder Of Agent Provocateur, Leaves

With some fabulously and sometimes shockingly sexy campaigns and lingerie behind him, co-founder of Agent Provocateur Joe Corre has parted ways with the company in order to work on other projects. As the son of designer Vivienne Westwood and former manager of the Sex Pistols, Malcolm MacLaren, Corre has the X-rated seductive spirit in his blood, and has caused a stir with campaigns including The Four Dreams of Miss X - starring our very own Kate Moss - and more recently the promotional video 'Love Me Tender... Or Else', starring newcomer Rosie Huntington-Whitely.

The label will be left in the capable hands of Corre's ex-wife and co-founder, Serena Rees and Creative Director Sarah Shotton, whilst Corre moves on to concentrate on his menswear business, Child of the Jago, and his long passion for music. Having received rave reviews after showing vintage Teddy boy suits, Victorian peacoats and fighter pilot jackets at last month's London Fashion Week, Child of the Jago - which is named after a Victorian novel - is set to do well.

Megan Fox Transforms From Actress To Face Of Armani

The ever sultry, ever sexy Megan Fox has been announced as the new face of the equally seductive label, Armani. It seems Giorgio Armani has a very strong idea of his Armani woman, as Fox has been widely compared to Giorgio's existing muse, Angelina Jolie, who had been wrongly rumoured to be starring in the latest campaigns. With her femme fetale looks, and darkly interesting personality, it is without doubt Fox will fit in well with the label as she goes on to replace Victoria and David Beckham in the advertising for Emporio Armani Jeans and Armani Underwear in 2010.

It has been revealed that the campaign has already been shot by photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, who are well known for their portraits of strong and sophisticated women, with footballer Cristiano Ronaldo replacing David Beckham, although it is known that the pair will not star alongside one another. After seeing her smouldering performance in the recent editorial and front cover in Wonderland, we're sure the results will be steamy. Lock away those boyfriends, ladies.

Wang Mania Reaches Fever-Pitch At Selfridges

On Monday night, Selfridges paid host to none other than the current golden boy of fashion, Alexander Wang. The 25 year old had touched down at the ultra hip department store not only to check out his new pop-up store, but also to be interviewed live by Colin McDowell for the Sunday Times Style's 'In Conversation With' series. With an existing army of fans consisting of teens, young 20 something and upwards, the predominantly Wang-attired teenage audience was a surprise turnout. He spoke about his signature 'model off duty' look which he confirmed were indeed inspired by Erin Wasson but insists that "Erin is more of a friend than a muse- I think that word is out-dated, and I never use it myself."

Stella McCartney Bridges The Gap With Children's Collection

Stella McCartney is one versatile designer. Her feminine, tailored designs for her eponymous label and her collaboration with high street brands such as H&M and Addidas, have won her legions of style-savvy fans over the years. Now McCartney has decided to corner the children's market too by announcing her plans to release a collection for GapKids and babyGap.

As her debut childrenswear collection, it was only a matter of time before McCartney responded to multiple requests for her to release a collection solely aimed at children. McCartney confessed that the decision was a no-brainer especially as there is a distinct gap in the market for good quality, fashionable and affordable childrens clothing. "I find there's nothing between the two worlds- it's kind of cheap or expensive, and they look like that."

Olsen Twins Design Sunglasses

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are designing a range of sunglasses for The Row’s next season collection. The range, which will be produced by Linda Farrow - high fashion, high luxury eyewear designer, who also designs for Raf Simons, Matthew Williamson and Dries van Noten - will feature a classic metal aviator, an oversized square frame, a vintage-inspired brown rimmed frame and a pair of 60s inspired round shades.

“Designing eye wear was definitely more complicated than we thought,” said the twins, who hinted that if the collection is successful they may expand the range, and possibly branch into accessories.

Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED Lets You Do It Yourself


Admire Alexa Chung's style? Sure ya do. If you're like her, you'll appreciate Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED, which allows accessory fanatics to create their own pieces of bespoke jewellery in-store or online.

We're pretty excited to try this, so here's how it works: You choose the type of jewellery you want to create, then pick your stones, decide if you'd like to add extra crystal accents, add a flourish here and there, and voila. If you're not sure what to make, a personal stylist is available to help choose a piece for your facial features, hairstyle and eye colour. You also can work straight from your own computer, by visiting the Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED website and using the new online tool.

For those who feel less ambitious, you can go the traditional way and choose already-made pieces. We're not saying you'll feel as much like a master craftsman, but you have options, right?

London's Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED shop is located at 24 Great Marlborough Street, W1.
