Coffee meets fashion, Mulberry hiring Scottish knitters, Dorothy’s frock up for sale again and congrats to Denyse Gordon!
There was a lot of buzz around Brad Pitt‘s Chanel No. 5 commercial – but not the buzz one would expect. This commercial made women squirm – and not in a good way. It sounds creepy and stalkerish, not to mention bad acting. Hear Brad Pitt try to sound seductive and serious.
What’s also buzzing – YSL‘s name change. According to MTV, it’s also affecting 40+ rap lyrics. The good news, it’s less of a mouthful if they rap out the whole name. The bad news, rapping about “SL” will give Mercedes an accidental boost.
Maison Martin Margiela’s H&M collection‘s sneak peeks are out and of course, it’s what you come to expect. While some of the designs are definitely artsy, others remind me of curling up in a sleeping bag or snuggie – artistic sleeping bags or haute couture snuggies of course.
Another artistic collaboration to come out soon: Rodarte and Starbucks – check out the gift cards!
A less artistic collaboration but certainly something to be noted: Mulberry hiring Scottish knitters for their knitted scarf line. Get this, these handmade scarves are $1605 USD. There’s no say how much these ladies made.
In less avaunt-garde fashion, Zara has launched their US home line!
What was already up for auction? Marie Antoinette‘s silk slippers – and they sold for $65,000 – just a fraction of what Dorothy’s frock is set to tell for.
Last week, the Ms. Veteran America pageant took place at the Ritz-Carlton in Pentagon City, and it got some national attention! Congrats to Washington, D.C.’s own Denyse Gordon for being crowned!!
