H&M historically does a designer collaboration for the holidays: feel Stella McCartney, Versace, Lanvin, or Karl Lagerfeld for H&M. This year’s chosen designer? It might very effectively be Maison Martin Margiela, WWD reports.
Despite the fact that H&M wouldn’t comment on the rumors, it wouldn’t be the initial time the mass retailer has teamed up with a more avant-garde designer: in 2008, Comme des Garcons did an H&M holiday collection.
According to WWD, the Margiela announcement is expected soon the collaboration could very effectively span men’s and women’s clothing, accessories, jewelry, fragrance, and house decoration, as Margiela’s in-house style team works on all of the aforementioned. H&M’s subsequent confirmed collaboration is with Anna Dello Russo in October.
The graceful Jessica Chastain not too long ago attended the 2012 Tony Awards ceremony (held this very Sunday in New York, at the Beacon Theater). Now about her dress: you will either adore it or totally dismiss it (on some Britney Spears lookalike premises, if absolutely nothing else bothers you).
Jessica Chastain is wearing a see via Marios Schwab lace dress in a skin – like shade accessorizing it heavenly with her ideal smile. But did you know that Jessica was recently announced as the face of Yves Saint Laurent’s Manifesto perfume? I’m pleased to see she gets the attention she deserves, but I doubt YSL will capitalize on her sweet and candid characteristics. Far more likely they’ll turn her into some type of Amazonian fashionista, wouldn’t you say?

Style shows make Greta Gerwig nervous. “I don’t go to Fashion Week because I’m entirely intimidated! I’ve been to a couple of shows, Yigal Azrouel and Cynthia Rowley, and I watch shows online. But circumstances exactly where I have to get my hair and makeup accomplished and look nice and get my image taken are type of stressful.”
Curled up on a sofa at the Crosby Street Hotel, Gerwig exudes the identical effortless charm as she does in her new film, Lola Versus. A winsome cocktail of insecurity and guilelessness with a dash of awkwardness, Gerwig has drawn comparisons to a young Diane Keaton and Meg Ryan. The transparent naturalness of her onscreen persona, honed by way of years of acting in the uber-realism of mumblecore indies, renders her as relatable as her pal, Girls creator Lena Dunham. Gerwig ran into Dunham at the Met Gala in Might.
Jason says, “I did not see a lot of fading in my jeans this week. They really feel a bit large. Looser than I expected. I’m excited to take off the patches at the end to see if the jeans faded everywhere but there. I hope to see some rips, wear and tear soon.”
Victoria Beckham is taking however one more step forward in her style profession. Less than a year immediately after her Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection launched and she is now backing it up with a new capsule line for Net-a-Porter. Of course this is not her début collaboration for the on-line retailer, she launched another line last year in November.
After tweeting 1 of her dresses last week whilst wearing a pair of fluffy white slippers, we can now have a further look at the six-piece capsule collection. Based on a palette of blush pink, lemon, navy and emerald green, the line comprises of simple sleeveless shift dresses, pleated numbers, and drop waist styles all in a quite apparent Sixties style.
Prices for Beckham’s capsule collection range from £355 for a silk mini dress up to £730 for a drop waist stretch wool dress. It is a slight alter from the whimsical cat and cloud prints from her Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection. Her new Net-a-porter line goes on sale right now, do not miss out!

Pedro Lourenço on His Collaboration With Melissa, His First Comme des Garçons Show (He Was 7) and His Biggest Challenge
Melissa, the Brazilian-based brand that churns out candy-colored mold-injected plastic shoes, is no stranger to collaborating with artists, architects and designers–it’s component of who they are. Past style collaborators include Vivienne Westwood, Jason Wu and Gareth Pugh, just to name a handful of. Their latest collaboration is a fitting a single, as it’s with fellow Brazilian designer Pedro Lourenço.
A considerably buzzed-about name to watch, Lourenço showed his very first ready-to-put on collection in Paris to vital acclaim when he was just 19. Born into a fashion family–both his mother and father are established designers in Sao Paulo–Lourenço grew up in factories, sketching, sewing, and taking in shows in Paris. When most seven-year-olds had been understanding to ride a bike or playing video games or performing whatever it is that that most seven-year-olds do, Lourenço was taking in his first Comme des Garçons show in Paris. “It was in 1997,” he told us at a dinner to fete the collaboration at Indochine. “There were just 80 folks, no music, and in my opinion it was the final big modify in the silhouette in style.”
Lourenço’s collaboration with Melissa marks the initial time he’s ever produced shoes. “I typically do shoes for my own shows but they’re never produced,” Lourenço said. When asked if he’d like to continue making shoes he didn’t hesitate: “Yeah, absolutely.”
