Get Ready To Pounce On This Jungle-Inspired Kenzo x Vans Collection

My appreciation of Vans may very well be one of the final vestiges of my time as an erstwhile teenage skater-dater. I relish a good pair of the classic skate sneakers: they’re cool and comfortable, and my favorite well-worn white pair goes with everything from rolled-up jeans to summer dresses. Kenzo has teamed up with…

Don’t Tell Anyone, But Condé Nast Created A Mini-Magazine For Walmart

There are some things in life that just belong together. For instance: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup, Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne. I’ve only been to Walmart once, when I accompanied my then-boyfriend to purchase a Bear Grylls-brand camping knife, but the politically conservative megastore definitely did not strike…

The Ugliest Shoes You’ll Never Consider Spending $1,200 On

Despite an unceremonious fall from grace in 1992, ’80s artist Rob Pruitt is making a name for himself once again in the contemporary art world, thanks in part to the chrome statue of Andy Warhol he erected on a high-traffic street corner in Manhattan’s Union Square last year. One would think that, with his irreverent…

Rumor Has It That Adele Will Collaborate With Burberry On A Plus-Size Line

I’m not plus-size, but as a fashion-loving girl who’s small-framed and somewhat oddly proportioned, I completely sympathize with the plight that is finding quality clothing that not only just kind of fits but truly flatters. It can be incomprehensibly difficult to style a woman who doesn’t adhere to the slim, often straight up-and-down silhouette that…

It’s Here! Anna Dello Russo’s Gorgeously Gilded Accessories Collection For H&M

It was only a matter of time before Vogue Japan editor-at-large and totally OTT fashionista Anna Dello Russo got to put her medal of approval on a line of her own, and it’s only natural that she of the outrageous fascinators and tacky-goes-high fashion opulence would cut her design teeth on — what else? —…

The Latest H&M Collab? Maison Martin Margiela

Boy, are we stoked! H&M just announced that its latest designer collaboration will be with Belgian designer Maison Martin Margiela. Margiela, who along with avant garde designers Ann Demeulemeester and Dries Van Noten made up the Antwerp Six, comes from a more radical place than a lot of H&M’s past collaborators. Margiela is definitely more of…

Yes, Versace Is Doing A Line For H&M

Donatella Versace–the most tanned woman in fashion and pretty much anything else–has announced she’s doing a collaborative diffusion line with H&M, despite announcing in 2008 that she’d nevah, evah work with the Swedish company. “I respect everyone who does it,” she said way back then. “But the reason I didn’t do it is because I…

The Nicholas Kirkwood x Keith Haring Collaboration is Out!

Nicholas Kirkwood is a bonafide shoe genius. And Keith Haring revolutionized the art world in the ’80s and ’90s by helping to show that activism and art could meld into bright, beautiful creations. So when it was revealed that Kirkwood would be creating a collection of shoes in honor of Haring, well, we couldn’t wait…

You’ve Probably Never Heard Of H&M’s Next Big Collaborator

Swedish fashion giant H&M has done some pretty high profile collaborations in the past–Lanvin, Victor & Rolf and Stella McCartney, to name just a few. But you probably haven’t heard of their newest collaborator. Fashion blogger Elin Kling is “big in Sweden” but really hasn’t made a name for herself here. Still, she’s been plucked…

From What We Can Tell, Kim Gordon’s Sportmax Collab Is Disappointing (Sniff)

We just don’t get it. Kim Gordon plus anything fashion should equal awesomeness. In the past, the Sonic Youth punk songstress has dabbled in the industry, producing outstanding results with cult ’90s brand X-Girl (gone for years now, sadly) and more recently, a sleek, military-inspired line called Mirror/Dash, which faded into oblivion. Gordon is now…

Must Buy: Official Betty White Apparel

We’ve always had a thing for “Golden Girl” Betty White and her geriatric cheekiness. But, until now, we never had an appropriate way to express our love. Yeah, we could buy Betty’s sexy calendar, but that would just be tacked on our walls, and sorry, that just isn’t a public enough homage to Ms. White.

Does Nina Garcia’s New Target Affiliation Make You Respect Her More Or Less?

Nina Garcia of Project Runway, Elle, and Marie Claire fame has signed on to be Target’s “fashion expert.” The role will mean more videos for Target’s website and StyleBoutique blog, repping new developments for Target brands like Mossimo, and offering tips and tricks for making the most of the store’s budget clothes. This is a…

Vena Cava Designs For Bloomingdale’s Aqua Brand

Vena Cava is bringing their artsy cool aesthetic to Bloomingdale’s Aqua brand this fall. Given Aqua’s affordable price point, the Vena Cava collaboration is expected to be even less expensive than the brand’s already-existent diffusion line, Viva Vena. We hope — and expect — that it will be just as cute, though! [The Cut]…

Get Your Own Blogger Bling

In case you needed more evidence that fashion bloggers are kind of cool these days, four of them have teamed up with Meadowlark Jewelry to co-design some rather cool silver rings. The uber-stylish blog vixens of Garbage Dress, DI$COUNT, Gnarlitude, and Kingdom of Style each came up with their own ring, all of which will…

Cop Her Style: Morticia Adams’ Nails

Macabre though it may sound to call Morticia Adams a major fashion inspiration, that bitch was fierce. And her return to pop culture in “The Adams Family” musical has brought with it a whole new way to emulate Mama Adams. Essie has teamed up with the production to release three Morticia-inspired nail polish colors for
