Many were left disappointed when Brian Reyes decided to close his namesale line last year but fans of the designer will be pleased to hear that he's back, after spending the past year travelling.
WWD announced that the designer has just bagged a creative consulting gig at Tse and will show his first collection for the label in November for pre-fall. So far it looks like Reyes will also stay on board for for the brand's fall 2012 collection but it's unclear whether he will stay on for much longer after that and he didn't completely rule out starting his label again. “If I pursue [my own label] again down the road, it will be a different business structure,” he said .
Whilst we've seen the jumpsuit become a catwalk staple for some seasons now, the key to buying an investment to last Summer through to Winter is to look for a long sleeved, long legged one-piece. Keep it belted to accentuate the figure and buy in neutral colours, sticking to black, petrol blue or nudes and pale greys. Accessorize with shoe boots for day or stilettos for night, and even an oversized pompom if you're feeling brave a la Sonia Rykiel.
Lindsey Wixson is fast-becomining the Tavi Gevinson of the modelling world. Wixson has been an aspiring model since age 12 and started out in her hometown of Wichita. Wixson had a shaky start, though. Her parents thought she was simply going through a phase, and when she was met with a lukewarm reception from agencies and casting directors alike on arrival in the Big Apple, Wixson remained undeterred. Instead, the savvy little lady used her initiaive and posted a video of herself on Models.com, which caught the eye of none other than Steven Meisel - and the rest, as they say, is history.
At 15, Lindsey - with her trademark bee-stung lips - is definitely living the dream, especially judging by the number of Spring 2010 shows she clocked up during last season's fashion weeks. Not only did she walk for the likes of Brian Reyes and Cynthian Steffe, she opened Prada's show in Milan and closed the Miu Miu show in Paris. And if all those achievements weren't enough, she has recently been chosen to front Miu Miu's Spring 2010 ad campaign, following in the footsteps of the likes of Kirsten Dunst, Katie Holmes and Vanessa Paradis.
Looks like things are really going to happen for Miss Wixson this year and that she'll have the last laugh. For someone so young, Wixson knows her mind and is not afraid to speak up if she's not happy. On a recent shoot with Craig McDean for W magazine, Wixson boldly requested a bra to wear under a see-through top to cover her modesty. "I am 15 and even though I freaked a little, I know for a fact that my mom would freak ten times as much," she said. "I just couldn't be flashing everyone out there." We are seriously loving Lindsey and can only imagine what this sassy little lady will have achieved by the time she is 17. Looks like Karlie Kloss might need to watch her back.
