Charlotte Olympia Also Launches An Activewear Line

Categories:Fashion

Known for her quirky shoe designs, Charlotte Dellal (the woman behind Charlotte Olympia creations) is taking over the activewear world by utilizing her signature aesthetics for a whimsical 10-piece capsule collection set to launch in May, 2016. To launch her activewear line, Charlotte Olympia has teamed up with activewear and lifestyle brand Bodyism, which let her combine her one-of-a-kind looks, such as the leopard prints and the kittens faces, with the label’s signature spiderweb logo and athleisure-approved materials.

Charlotte Olympia x Bodyism Activewear 2016 Collection

Bodysim, whose motto is to spread the ‘clean and lean’ philosophy to the world, was founded by James Duigan and Nathalie Schyllert around 10 years ago, and is one of the first activewear brands whose aim was turning workout ensembles into bold fashion statements. Behind Bodyism works a team of professional experts who make sure our bodies are in good hands indeed, both physically and spiritually. Personal Trainer Duigan has, in fact, smitten many celebrities, including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Elle MacPherson, with his cozy activewear designs and holistic approach to health, providing us with a nutrition-packed diet and some simple, 15-minute core exercises one can practice at home too.

Nathalie Schyllert, Bodywear for Bodyism’s director and co-founder of Bodyism (which could be regarded more as a movement), took the time to explain us why Bodyism’s headquarters chose to team up with Dellal, revealing the designer’s unconventional aesthetics are perfectly in line with Bodyism’s philosophy, and just proving once more that activewear can indeed be fashionable and wearable from daytime to nighttime. As for Dellal herself, the talented designer appears to be excited about the partnership and the opportunity to work with Bodyism’s team (they share a longstanding friendship with each other).

“I wanted to design a range that could be worn out and about, or for working out in the gym,” she told WWD. “I wanted to add a touch of glamour to sportswear so that you can feel dressed up, even when you’re on the go.”

And just by looking at the proposals, one really gets the chance to see what it means to combine fancy designs with workout-approved pieces. From leggings to sports bras, from sweatshirts with kitty designs that are just too cute to handle to gym bags, the Charlotte Olympia x Bodyism activewear 2016 collection will just work as the best daily motivation to work out and take time to cherish one’s body goals. As for the capsule collection’s price tags, they range from £75 (circa $108) to £295 (around $425), and you’ll be able to find the pieces at Harrods, Shopbop.com, Stylerunner, Isetan and Rubaiyat. They will roll out internationally in June though, as Bodyism has chosen to stock the collection exclusively for the first month.

As for Dellal, we have to say that it has been extremely interesting to follow her latest new wrinkles: besides starting out the year by hosting her first runaway show at the London Fashion Week in February, Dellal has launched a series of collaborations that, aside from this one with Bodyism, included a risqué lingerie andboudoir-inspired shoeline with Agent Provocateur and a 26-product beauty range with MAC Cosmetics. She is a glutton for punishment indeed!

Victoria Beckham Launches a Makeup Line with Estee Lauder

Categories:Fashion

It was rumored in November of last year that the multitalented Victoria Beckham would be expanding into the beauty industry. And now it seems this rumor has come to fruition, as the ex-Spice Girl has entered a partnership with Estée Lauder in order to create a limited edition line of makeup, that is due to be released this coming fall. We don’t know much, as of yet, about what the Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder makeup collection will include, but we do know that the line is coming, and that when it does the products will be found online on the websites of Estée Lauder and other select retailers, which will also sell the products in their physical locations.

Victoria Beckham Launches a Makeup Line with Estee Lauder

Estée Lauder is well-known for remunerative collaborations with notable designers, so now they will benefit from adding Victoria Beckham onto the list, alongside other brands like Michael Kors, Tom Ford, and Tory Burch, with which Estée Lauder has lasting collaborations. Due to its limited-edition status, the collection with Beckham will likely be similar to the 2014 collaboration with Derek Lam; the partnership acted as an entry into the beauty industry, and then Lam was able to go on and collaborate with Butterfly Beauty in the next year. With Beckham’s express interest in integrating herself into the beauty market, this would prove to be a beneficial partnership.

Back in 2014, now-executive group president of Estée Lauder John Demsey gave an interview to the Financial Times regarding the idea of beauty labels collaborating with those in the fashion industry. “Almost every key cosmetics brand today has some association with a designer. Designers now have big social profiles, their runway shows are devoured on all social media platforms, and in some ways, it’s less about clothing and more about the total look.”

Makeup and beauty products are an integral part of the fashion show process, so the partnerships seem to be natural – and in 2016, that concept is continuing to rise in importance, due to the rising demand for designers to have a strong online presence. In fact, Demsey continued on to say how there was “a glut of megastar perfumes and megastar contracts behind traditional brands,” showing that designers recognize the importance of the industry, and what better way to promote your fashion brand than to supplement it with complementary beauty products?

Beckham isn’t going into this partnership as a total stranger to the fashion industry as back in 2006 she had a “megastar contract” of her own with Coty. She and her husband David Beckham worked together to release a his-and-hers collection; David actually continues to partner with Coty today, and Victoria began her eponymous label two years thereafter. Her reentry into the beauty industry could potentially do wonders for her ready-to-wear fashion brand, since everyday fashion and everyday makeup and beauty products go hand in hand. She released a public statement addressing her partnership, and allowed some insight into the collection’s potential.

” … from going back and revisiting the Estée Lauder archives through to working on the product with the Estée team, this feels like the perfect makeup partnership for me and my brand. I am excited to offer both of our customers this makeup range and play a small part in [Estée Lauder’s] vision for women.”

Alexander Wang Launches a Jewelry Line

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

It seems that many designers have begun shaking up their strategies and adding to their product lines these days, seeing the holiday season and the whole gift-giving traditions as the perfect moment to launch new ideas. Alexander Wang is among these designers, who finds himself opting to start a new line right before the Christmas frenzy. Then again, it was a long time coming as the man has come up with designs for lighter cases, “do not disturb” signs, bottle openers, travel neck pillows and canteens, so Alexander Wang jewelry only makes sense after all of that.

Alexander Wang Jewelry Line

Why on earth had he not launched jewelry before though? “I always wanted to do jewelry, but I never felt like I had the opportunity. I’ve had my hands quite full,” Wang mentioned in one particular interview. “But I really got exposed to it when I went to Balenciaga and I really enjoyed the process.” Better late than never though, right? After all, a designer needs to feel comfortable with a concept first, before embarking on a journey to make it a reality.

Wang is known for his chunky pieces. As such, it makes perfect sense that his small collection of three pieces is all about the chunky, with bike chain earrings and a necklace featuring a lock in the middle. There is also a lock cuff, and these three were shown off for the spring collection. He has increased the number of pieces in thecollection for the pre-fall line as well.

Wang’s previous collaborations for jewelry included those with Gaia Repossi and Betony Vernon. However, at that point, it was him submitting ideas and they handling the rest. At Balenciaga, it was the opposite, with Wang himself having taken over everything from the initial sketches of the ideas to the final production of the jewelry pieces, also having major say in the prices each was listed at. “I really got a hand on it in Paris,” he said. “We were really successful with the jewelry that I did [at Balenciaga].”

At the moment, the Alexander Wang jewelry pieces we see are just a natural extension to the collections he puts out, with the tough looking chic hardware and the intricate details that are forever Wang. It is all produced in Italy, the chain pieces plated with brass palladium, while it is 24-karat gold we notice on the locks that appear. For now, we know that the earrings cost $295, while the prices can range up to $525, as is the case with the double lock necklace.

We know that this will definitely attract a good number of people who are more than willing to give the gift of Alexander Wang jewelry in the coming year for all manner of occasions. First though, we expect Christmas shopping and from Alexander Wang stores to double or triple in the coming days as the collection launches mid-December.

BURBERRY LAUNCHES A SCARF BAR, AND UPGRADES ITS PONCHOS AND TRENCH COAT LINES

Categories:Other Brands

The Burberry Scarf Ba_001
In the world of fashion nothing spells British more aptly than Burberry. More so for its mono-tones that are strikingly elegant than anything else. This week will see the brand jump out of its traditional wagon and embracing some changes that are both new and a colourful uplift for Britain’s favourite fashion label. Celebrating Burberry scarves is The Burberry Scarf Bar – in-store and online – which will offer a range of lightweight and classic cashmere scarves including the iconic heritage shades such as camel, stone, charcoal, navy and parade red. The scarves are exemplary pieces of craftsmanship, weaved in a 200-year old mill in Elgin and another mill in Ayr, both in Scotland. The collection will feature more than 30 colours. To keep up with the times, the brand has also introduced a personalized responsive marketing campaign where a server will help you navigate through the site, keeping in mind your location, the weather there and personal choices. As also is typical of Burberry, the scarves can be monogrammed – more than 30 shades, up to three letters and available in two font sizes. The launch has been colourfully explained in a video ad. The Autumn/Winter 2015 collection has also updated the Burberry Poncho range with the addition of classic checks, prints and block colours.

As well as the Scarf Bar, Burberry has also – for the first time in its long history – introduced two new colours to its trench coat line. The Heritage Trench Coat Collection will now feature navy and parade red in addition to its honey, stone, and black palettes. The revolutionary British trench coat is keeping up with the times, without washing away its sturdy roots of tradition.

HERMÈS PETIT H LAUNCHES INTRIGUING MONTHLY SURPRISE BOX

Categories:Other Brands

hermès-petit-h-1
At Hermès, recycling gets a whole new meaning through the luxury house’s Petit H line of products. The line utilizes waste materials left over after the creation of other Hermès goods to create fun and quirky items that are as endearing as they are unique. The brand has added an additional air of intrigue to the label by launching a monthly Mystery box.

Other brands usually use this promotion on a subscription basis, but Petit H has chosen not to take this route. The brand describes the promotion saying: “Each month, we surprise you with a new selection of items from Petit h, our laboratory of imagination and reconstruction.” Everyone is a winner with this surprise box.

Luxurydaily reported that the mystery box was available in three price tiers. The PM box for $240, suitable for both genders, a MM box best suited for women with a price of $440 and the GM option, available for $580 is also intended for female customers.

Though Hermès gives no hint of what the boxes could contain, it is most likely that they will be small leather goods, jewelry or similar trinkets.
