Mulberry And Cara Delevinge Plan Something Very Exciting For London Fashion Week

This morning, a really intriguing email from Mulberry landed in our inboxes which has got us much more excited for London Fashion Week, which kicks off tomorrow. It simply read: ‘Mulberry and Cara Delevingne have exciting plans for London Fashion Week. All would be revealed this Sunday 16 February at 1.30pm (GMT).

A link to the video you spot above was included, in addition to the hashtag #SeeYouSunday. And that was all. What are they as much as?

The video, which sees Cara skip around a London station (King’s Cross? St Pancras?), hail a black cab and sketch something on a train, is the only real clue the style house are giving us right now. What does all of it mean?

If you’d forgotten, Mulberry should not staging a catwalk show at this February’s London Fashion Week, thanks to the actual fact they still haven’t appointed a brand new creative director following Emma Hill’s departure last September. However, the label always said they might remain inquisitive about the capital’s fashion week somehow, and it appears like Mulberry has created something pretty special. We just need to know what this is.

Given the British heritage brand consistently pulls the largest stars to its LFW shows, so we’re guessing whatever Sunday’s secret event is, it’s guaranteed to be a star-studded.

Stay tuned for more information…

Vivienne Westwood Designs Miss Piggy a marriage Dress

Vivienne Westwood designs Miss Piggys wedding dress

Miss Piggy wears a Vivienne Westwood wedding dress – but will she get married?

Vivienne Westwood has landed the job of designing one of the vital anticipated wedding dresses ever: Miss Piggy’s.

The fashion-loving, OTT Muppets character have been desirous to get her long term love Kermit the Frog to marry her for often her entire life, and the hot Muppets movie – Muppets Most Wanted – might just see her wish granted.

Disney released a brand new still from the imminent movie, with Miss Piggy wearing an ivory couture gown, designed by Dame Viv.

‘Vivienne Westwood is fabulous – similar to moi,’ said Miss Piggy. ‘When I asked her to design this wedding dress for moi’s new movie, Muppets Most Wanted, she was thrilled and that i was thrilled. The sole one a little bit ‘iffy’ about it was the Frog.’

However, Miss Piggy appearing in a bridal gown does not imply it’ll be a cheerful-ever-after ending for her and Kermy. The film’s producers are remaining schtum about even if the porcine puppet gets her frog down the aisle.

So will Miss Piggy suffer a similar fate as Carrie Bradhaw (whose dress was also designed by Vivienne Westwood) and be left by Kermit on the altar? 

We sincerely hope not…

The MIA X Versus Versace Collection Has Arrived, Here’s Why You Can’t Miss It

The MIA X Versus Versace collection revealed

Versus Versace reveal its collaborative collection with M.I.A.

M.I.A.’s capsule collection for Versus Versace comes as an unexpected but oh-so-exciting move for the worldwide fashion brand.

Teaming up with the Grammy-award winning artist, the nineteen-piece collection perfectly encompasses the star’s rebellion with the brand’s fierce attitude. A match made in heaven? It’d seem so. 

The finest twist comes from the line’s bootleg inspiration, reworking the theorem of pretend Versace merchandise sold at the streets, as kaleidoscopic prints are cut into clashing dresses, tops, skirts and trousers. 

Blown up graphics of gold medallions won’t look misplaced on a market stall, but here they’re the genuine thing and shortly-to-be-well-liked. 

“I love the energy of the road, so when M.I.A. suggested we use bootlegs of Versace, i believed it was such a good idea,” said Donatella Versace.

Adding, “The collection is everything that i admire in regards to the new Versus Versace – it’s fast, loud, unafraid, and brings together the worlds of music and fashion. I can’t wait to work out people wearing the gathering.”

If that isn’t enough to get you on board, M.I.A. goes directly to say, “It’s always been portion of the M.I.A. culture – to speak about bootlegs, and folks that sell them or lead them to. After I was approached by Versace, it gave the impression of a good suggestion to take that and reverse the cycle.”

The Born Free singer also models the gathering in a suite of recent campaign images, as she hit the markets of East London with photographer Jaime Martinez.

This would be the guiltiest pleasure of all of the collections you spot this season.
