After a quick sell out of their first collection, designers Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff have launched their second range for Topshop. Their mood? Rebellious. This Meadham Kirchhoff collection features wild pieces ranging from tinsel-strip skirts to leopard-print tights to distressed silk-printed tees and dresses. Rounding out the selection are classic Breton-stripe pieces, including jumpers and more tights. So what do you think of the latest looks? And will you be buying?
Starting this July, you can look to Mary-KateandAshley Olsento tell you what to wear. The Olsen twins are launching StyleMint.com this summer with Josh Berman, one of the original co-founders of MySpace. Women's Wear Daily describes the site as "similar to book-, music- and wine-of-the-month clubs." Basically, users can log in, fill out a short style quiz and then receive recommendations of Olsen-designed merchandise based on their personal taste.
Berman (through his company, Beachmint) previously launched JewelMint.com with Kate Bosworth and her stylist, Cher Coulter. JewelMint operates on a similar principal but sells jewellery, with all pieces retailing for $29.99. The Olsens' site will start out at the same price point. Their first range? A custom collection of women's t-shirts. Mark those calendars if you're looking for a little Olsen-approved advice.
If you're at Westfield London tomorrow, then you might have a run-in with Naomi Campbell. The supermodel will be at the mall to launch her latest charity initiative, a one-week-only Fashion for Relief pop-up shop to benefit The Prince's Trust. On offer? Looks from Fashion for Relief designers (including Christopher Kane, Tom Ford and Vivienne Westwood), which were previously showcased on the catwalks of the relief effort's New York and London fashion shows.
You can expect stock to be replenished daily at the shop, which will be open from April 6 to 12 - with tomorrow's special preview open to a select few. The shop will feature rotating DJs (for those whose shopping requires intensive musical entertainment), and celebrities "from the world of glamour and fashion" will be on hand to serve shoppers. Not a bad way to drop a bit of cash, hmm?
Before this week's Fashion's Night Out on Sept. 10, you can prepare to dress the part - by buying your own FNO-brand merchandise from US and Canadian retailers. You can get short- and long-sleeved t-shirts and vest tops, according to WWD. Prices start at $20 for a women's tank in white, and run to $60 for a dark grey unisex hoodie.
With 40 percent of proceeds, which should be delivered to shops in August, benefitting the NYC AIDS Fun, you can rest assured that your hard-earned money will be headed for a worthy cause. Mark your calendars for your fall shopping date now...
