Anthropologie Gets Into the Collaboration Game

Apparently, Anthropologie is jealous of the attention that stores like H&M, Topshop, and Uniqlo are getting for their designer collaborations. So the romantic brand nabbed Brian Wolk and Claude Morais of Ruffian to create four collections which will appear in 55 stores, beginning in November. Sadly, no pics yet, but think a total ’40s style look, complete with coats, silk dresses, and their very own prints. If the stockings look anything like their polka-dot design that walked down the runway in the fall ’09 collection, then it’s sure to sell out immediately.

But it wouldn’t be an Anthropologie collection without just a tidbit of home goods. So, of course, Ruffian-style candles and glasses will be available for purchase. Plus, come spring, you’ll be able to lie on sheets by the boys. Basically they’re taking over the store and our homes. And you know what? We are totally OK with that! [WWD]

London Fashion Week Offers (Gasp!) Diversity

After a rocky, anorexia-accusation-laden beginning, London Fashion Week is now offering us a glimpse at runways not peopled with white, pre-pubescent stick figures. PPQ followed in the steps of Carlos Campos in casting an entire runway of black models; knitwear designer Mark Fast sent three “plus-sized” (read “averaged-sized”) girls down the runway in his uber-clingy dresses; and Sykes pulled a Charles Nolan, marching models up to 70 years old down its catwalk.

Blake Lively’s Boobs And Legs Roam Free In Yet Another Red Carpet Gown

It’s hard being Blake Lively. Between Leighton Meester‘s alleged sex tape, Ed Westwick‘s stupid tattoos, and Taylor Momsen‘s incessant partying, she’s the only class act “Gossip Girl” has got going. Yet, when it comes to the red carpet, subtlety eludes the poor thing. Keep reading »

Nicholas Kirkwood’s Amazing Futuristic Heels For Rodarte

Check out these uh-may-zing heels by Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte’s spring 2010 collection. This season the Mulleavy sisters were inspired by Death Valley — the clothes have a “Mad Max”-meets-”Blade Runner,” neo-primitive, apocalyptic look. To match the urban guerrilla theme, Kirkwood, who’s known for his over-the-top footwear, created these Hermes-esque-leather-and-metal-spike-studded stilettos. The heel appears to be made out of nuts. Now, that’s hardcore. Take a closer look at Jak & Jil. Keep reading »

Christian Joy Creates Kooky “Where the Wild Things Are” Costumes

Designer Christian Joy, who’s probably best-known for having designed some extremely outre outfits for Yeah Yeah Yeahs front woman Karen O, has created a set of costumes inspired by the soon-to-be-released feature film, “Where the Wild Things Are.” The five monster-and-Max suits come with horns, cock’s combs, and tails — exactly what every woman is sure to be wearing this fall. The monster garb is on view and for sale at Space 15 Twenty, and part of the proceeds will go to 826 Valencia, where kids go to write. Check out more after the jump!

Lula Mag’s “Spell” Film Is A Quick Daydream During A Ho-Hum Day

I’ve been feeling rather blah all week because the weather in NYC has once again turned cloudy and breezy, and I’ve been waking at 3 a.m. each morning, unable to fall asleep again for at least an hour and a half. So as you can guess, I’ve been tired. That was until I saw this movie by Lula magazine and Topshop to celebrate the launch of the mag’s new site. Lula, with style guru Leith Clark at the helm, is described by Topshop as: “a dreamscape of beautiful imagery and inspiring fashion, topped off with some flowers and a cupcake.” Basically, if the Secret Garden were a real place, Lula is what the teenaged heroine would read. “Spell” also captures the feeling of the secret world we all have in our minds that can save us from a mundane and tiring day.

Check out some Lula-approved Topshop items after jump, so you can own a little bit of the dreamscape too. Keep reading »

Celebrities Flocked To Ann Taylor’s (?) Fashion Show

Fashion Week isn’t just a time for crazy-expensive brands that are out of most people’s price ranges to show what they have coming down the pipeline. Besides the fine looks we saw from Snuggie, Ann Taylor also hosted a show, attended by important editors and celebrities, including Elle‘s Joe Zee, Vanessa Williams, Gretchen Mol, Mena Suvari, Amanda Bynes, Kelly Rutherford, and more.

The clothes shown weren’t what the retailer will be selling come spring 2010, like most shows. Instead, they were items that are available right now. While the whole thing was a marketing ploy to get more people interested in Ann Taylor clothes, it might have worked. Vanessa Williams admitted to being a fan of the dress she wore for the event, which fit her off the rack, and Katherine McPhee told WWD she loves their accessories.

Check out Ann Taylor’s newest arrivals, and tell us what you think! Keep reading »

    Etsy Find Of The Week: Joodito Clothing

    What joo lookin’ at, huh? Oh, my rad Joodito hoodie? Look away, my friend.

    Joodito, an Etsy seller specializing in creatively constructed clothes, describes its garments as “retro futurist,” and we couldn’t put it any better. Pieced together from raw textiles and scrap material, the dresses and tops play on vintage-y cowl neck shapes but go back to the future with asymmetrical lines and utilitarian colors. And unlike so many reconstructed and sustainable clothes out there that look like mad fashion experiments, Joodito pulls things together in an edgy-meets-elegant way.

    We’re loving on the Grandmaster Flash sleeveless hoodie with its black and navy angular patchwork, as well as the Sen Dog top, which pairs a huge space-like collar with a purple plaid bodice. [Etsy.com] Keep reading »
