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 hi…

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…

30 Chic & Artsy-Fartsy Pieces From Marni For H&M

A sign that I am not a real "fashion" person is that I do not generally like or appreciate the Italian label Marni. And if you don't gush and die over Marni then you cannot really be considered a fashion person. I think it's in the rule book. But that's fine by me because I…

Dita Von Teese Designing A Lingerie Collection For Target

A lot of celebrity collaborations are ridiculous to the point of insulting (the one by Twilight‘s Kellan Lutz springs to mind) but, if we were to imagine a celebrity-designed collection that actually made sense, Dita von Teese doing lingerie wouldn’t be far off. The burlesque superstar designed a 26 piece capsule collection for Target Australia, to hit stores early February (pre-Valentine’s Day).

Amy Winehouse Lives On … Through Fred Perry

Singer Any money Winehouse would have made will go right to her newly-established foundation. “Amy’s royalties and fees from both collections will be donated to the soon-to-be-established Amy Winehouse​ Foundation.

Amy Winehouse Releases Her 2nd Fred Perry Collab–And It’s Awesome

Occasionally, there are things that make you reevaluate what you've been doing wrong thus far in life, how you somehow have failed where others -- with bigger drug problems or rattier hair -- have succeeded. Amy Winehouse "designing" for Fred Perry is one of those things. Ms. Winehouse just launched her second collectio…

Do Knock-Offs And Designer Collabs Give You The “Must Have It” Syndrome?

We all know the feeling of fashion obsession. And often, it comes in the form of something very, very expensive. But has the retail industry succeeded in driving our obsessions to lower-priced goods? With the wave of decent knock-off chains supplying our closets (thank you, Zara and Forever 21), and exclusive designer…

Target Is Partnering With Gilt Groupe — Sales Start Tomorrow!

You know how Target tries to make its designer collaborations seem exclusive, but oftentimes only one or two pieces from a given collection are drool-worthy? Well, the super retailer is trying even harder to sell you on the idea that these collaborations offer "luxury" items at an affordable price. Target is partnering with Gilt Groupe,…

Justin Timberlake’s William Rast Teams With Target

Having perused the men's section at Target a few times, I've come to the conclusion that male shoppers of the retailer like their clothes boring and tame. Khakis, striped polos, and cargo pants abound. The section is nothing like the women's department, where Target has figured out how to cater to the soccer moms and…

Check Out Nike’s N98 Muse Collection

Nike has paired up with six young, new London designers, asking them to tear apart the classic N98 jacket and remodel it with specific athletes in mind.

Joss Stone Should Stick To Singing

Joss Stone is good at a lot of things, like singing and getting tattoos. Wanna know what she's not so good at? Designing shoes. As evidence to support this claim, we present early images of Stone's shoe collaboration with Nine West. Part of the brand's American Vintage Collection, the kicks are allegedly inspired…

Eley Kishimoto For Anthropologie Looks Like Maternity Wear

We love an Anthropologie designer collaboration as much as the next girl, but the newly released Eley Kishimoto collection is a dud. Cheaper fabrics don't seem to do justice to Eley Kishimoto's usually cute prints and shapes, and all the clothes veer pretty intensely towards maternity wear. The line is available in the…

Kim Kardashian Adds “Jewelry Designer” To Her Resume

Kim's collaborating with jeweler Pascal Mouawad on costume jewelry, including a capsule collection for Bebe, meaning that her line will…

I Survived The Cynthia Vincent For Target Debut

I'm not really one to wait in line for hours in the hopes of spending money on so-and-so's designer collaboration. One, I don't really enjoy owning something that thousands of other women own too. Two, why should I wait in line to spend my money? Three, the construction of most designer/retail chain items is really…

THE PRADALPHABET, a collaboration between Prada and M/M Paris, has arrived to kick the Times New Roman font's butt. It will be released in May…

J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons On Why It’s OK To Miss Out On Designer Collabs

We've been a little bummed that we're not obsessive enough to stay up all night in order to score pieces from Target's recent designer collaborations, but J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons puts things in perspective. In an interview with Style.com, Jenna shared how she feels about designers doing "affordable" lines for ma…
