All Dotty: Louis Vuitton’s Yayoi Kusama Collaboration

We've long been obsessed with the life and art of Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese artist who has obsessively made polka dot art for the last forty years. It seems Louis Vuitton shares our interest -- and has released images of its collection inspired by Kusama. Sadly, the collection is only available in a few…

Francisco Costa To Design A Capsule Collection For Macy’s

Macy's is really getting on their designer collaboration flow these days. Their first few capsule lines were little-hyped and could have fallen easily to the wayside, but they followed up with a power line-up: first Doo.Ri, with Alberta Ferretti hot on its heels, and now news has broken that Calvin Klein designer and perennial supermodel…

Kim Gordon Debuts Fashion Collaboration With Surface To Air

Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon is pretty much the godmother of post-punk, and one of the coolest and most stylish women around. So when we heard that she'd be collaborating on a fashion collection with chic French retailer Surface to Air, we couldn't wait to see it. Kim's designs don't disappoint. What does: their…

Doo-Ri Chung To Unveil Her Macy’s Collaboration

On the off chance that you live in deep seclusion, designer capsule collections for budget-priced stores are all the rage right now. H&M is perhaps the most prolific collaborator for this purpose: Commes des Garçons, Lanvin, and Versace have all produced lines with the mass retailer, and Marni is next in line. I'm familiar —…

H&M’s “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” Collection Is As Much of a Dystopian Nightmare as You’d Expect

So, let me get this straight: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is about a woman attempting to outrun a sadistic rapist and solve a murder, so naturally you'd want to design a line of clothing around her look. Well, not really. It seems that H&M's "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" collection is mostly a…

H&M Announces Marni As Its Newest Collaborator

We've always wanted to like Marni -- the high-end, highly structured Italian designer line. But truthfully, it's hard to imagine how to wear many of designer Consuelo Castiglioni's boxy, somewhat masculine creations. Still, we're curious to see how Castiglioni's collaboration with H&M might turn out, especially because she claims, rather unconvincingly, that "everything has the…

We’re In Love: Topshop’s New Designer Collab From Mary Katrantzou

This gorgeous dress is just a taste of designer Mary Katrantzou's forthcoming collection for TopShop. Not her first for the retailer, but by far her biggest, it will offer 14 pieces and hit stores in February 2012. Her work is characterized by a boldness of silhouettes and prints, and artful attention to the…

Versace For H&M: Will You Wear It?

H&M designer collaborations have been hit or miss over the years. Some -- like the Viktor & Rolf collab -- were absolute stunners, while others we had high hopes for (Lanvin, in particular) fell terribly flat. So we're definitely a bit apprehensive about the new Versace for H&M collection that hits store…
