Here’s this week’s fashion gossip and other news. The Good, the Bad, and the UGLY!
10. Charlotte Ronson, Costello Tagliapietra, and Vena Cava teams up with Uniqlo
Target, move over – you’re not the only one who can deliver high-end designer collaborations! Japanese-based brand, Uniqlo, will be collaborating with ALL THREE of these lovely designers! Best of all is that each piece will cost only $29.99 ! Costello’s collection will be out on April 21, while Charlotte’s hit stores on May 5th, and Vena’s will be seen on May 12th. We can’t wait!
09. Tina Fey is Pregggos With Her Second Child!
Though it may be hard to believe, Tina Fey actually wasn’t too thrilled when she first discovered she was pregnant with her second child. According to People Magazine, Tina was scared that having a second baby in her 40s would jeopardize her Hollywood career. However, after much deliberation with herself and family, she’s thrilled that her daughter will be having a baby daughter! Hmm, can we sense a playmate with Rachel Zoe’s baby boy ?
08. Olsen Twins Collaborates with Myspace Guy for Clothing Website
When we thought that the Olsen twins were having a bad week (i.e., being labeled as racists), they’re actually having a really good year. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are collaborating with one of the co-founders of Myspace, Josh Berman, to launch “Stylemint.com,” where each registered user will get monthly recommendations of the twins’ clothing designs. Each piece will cost $29.99 (seriously, what’s with this number?!). The site launches in July.
07. Christophe Decarnin Leaves Balmain
Famous for making exaggerated shoulders a hot comeback in 2009, creative director, Christophe Decarnin is leaving the fashion house. His designs for the brand, Balmain over the last five years were priceless. We’re saddened by his leave, but at least he wasn’t (ahem) fired like John Galliano.
06. Kanye West Makes a Comeback in the Fashion Scene
Just because Kanye West was shied away from Paris Fashion Week last month doesn’t mean it has hinder his passion for the industry. In fact, following up his success with his recent album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy , Kanye West will be designing a scarf collection inspired by the album. Of course, he will get some help from graphic designers, Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag.
05. Fashion’s Night Out = “Fashion’s Night In?”
FNO, Fashion’s Night Out, is a global celebration for shopping and the likes. For the last two years, FNO allowed retail stores open late so that consumers could dish out some awesome deals (and some yummy snacks!). However, it will be the first time that this year’s 3rd FNO will include online retailers to get in on the fun! Can we say “yay” to even MORE online shopping?
04. Dedicated Fans Get the Ecko Logo Tattooed and Receive 20% Lifetime Discount!
Talk about some dedication right? We’ve seen people get tatted up with Nike logos and words like Raiders till I die, but you don’t see those people getting some kind of incentive from the actual brand/company. That is major dedication right there. When Ecko launched the “Get 20% off if you get an Ecko tattoo” campaign on April 1st, many thought it was for April’s Fool Day. Lo and behold though, there were people who got the actual logo inked! In all honesty though, Ecko should grant at least 40% off for these guys.
03. Patricia Field Collaborates with Kotex to Design the Most Stylish Pad?
Patricia Field, known for styling the fab gals from Sex and the City , is joining forces with Kotex to host a contest where you get to design… feminine hygiene products. Yes, the likes of pads, tampons, and other sanitary napkins. But, the good news is that three winners with the best designs will get to work with Patricia Field on launching those designs in stores! Possibly one of the weirdest collaborations, but at least you will get to work with the Patricia Field! Feeling artsy? Design your own pad here!
02. DVF is Rumored to Collaborate with GAP Kids!
Now, here’s a collaboration that we are really excited about, especially the mommas and mom-to-bes! So far, it’s a rumour that Diane von Furstenberg will be designing for the Gap Kids Collection, but when asked about the rumoured collab, Gap’s spokeman had this to say, “No comment.” This usually means it’s true! Wonder if we’ll see kids across the nation donning her famous floral wraps?
01. Lady GAGA – Anti-Gay Protest
There’s no stopping Lady Gaga when it comes to fashion, music, and well equal rights! Lady Gaga’s recent Youtube Gagavision shows footage of her confronting an anti-gay protester outside her concert. No cursing, but the footage definitely shows the singer in a true light.
