Dree Hemingway for Sandro

Model and actress Dree Hemingway is launching a capsule collection with Sandro next month, bringing the French mid-price brand to US for the first time

The 24-year-old model, who is the great grand-daughter of literary great Ernest Hemingway, has taken inspiration from her childhood of Idaho to design the 10-piece collection, which is very unlike Sandro’s usual in house collections.

The capsule collection will include American Indian style printed t-shirts, feather printed dresses and scarves and embroidered shorts priced between £100 – £345. The collection will also be the first time the Parisian brand will reach US.

‘Dree Hemingway for Sandro’ launches in stores in March,

What do you think of the collection?

AW Trends.

Last week London was in a frenzy with all the London Fashion Week action.

So what have we learnt and what should we be wearing this coming Autumn/Winter?

The team over at Grazia have come up with the answers. Thank you Grazia.

1. A big, red knit jumper, as seen at Christopher Kane, Jonathan Saunders and J.W. Anderson

2. Covered up dressing, as seen at Erdem, Roskanda Ilincic and Giles.

3. Minimalist vs. Minimalist, with J.JS Lee keeping it simple in comparison with MeadhamKirchoff and Closetbox favorite Mary Katrantzou showing their amazing creativity and use of colour.

4. We need to get ourselves into Military as seen at Unique and McQ.

5. Big belts are back if the beautiful belts at Acne are anything to go by.

6. And we have another season to umm and ahh at whether peplums really suit us.

What trends will you be channeling this AW?

Last night The Oscars were held at The Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Meryl Streep, the most nominated actor of all time collected her 3rd academy award for The Iron Lady with Octavia Spencer, winning the best supporting actress award for The Help.

Print campaign: Marni for H&M.

I know we’ve had a lot to say about Marni for H&M, but we could resist showing you the full print ad campaign.

What do you think of the campaign?

Kate Moss for Mango.

Last month we told you that Kate Moss was to be the new face of Mango shot by Terry Richardson.  The full campaign is now here.

Kate Moss looks amazing as always. What do you guys think?

Marni for H&M

We’ve seen the editorial shots and we’ve seen the mini movie directed by Sophia Coppola, to accompany the print campaign, and now the lookbook for the greatly anticipated Marni for H&M has been released.

The collection is a eclectic mix of fabrics, prints and colours.

The collection goes on sale on March 8th and I already know what pieces I will be snatching up as soon as it goes on sale.

What do you think of the latest H&M collaboration? Which designer do you think will be next?
