Jennifer Lopez and Giuseppe Zanotti Launching a Shoe Line

Fashion

It’s happening! Jennifer Lopez is coming back to the fashion world with a shoe line, which is about to be launched in collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti. We don’t actually have to wait that long to have a glimpse of it, as the #GiuseppexJennifer shoe line is coming sooner than you expect, and is even going to feature two handbags!

Jennifer Lopez x Giuseppe Zanotti Shoe Line

Those who like to follow Jennifer Lopez around won’t be surprised about the collaboration. The musician, produces, singer, dancer, reality show host, designer (she founded the JLO by Jennifer Lopez clothing brand in 2001), and actress is always busy with something new, and her sense of fashion has always been strong throughout the years.

Whether one finds Jennifer Lopez’ looks wearable/inspirational or not, the 47-year-old talented beauty has always been one of the world’s leading trendsetters, especially during the Nineties. Although she is often in the spotlight due to her jaw-dropping, curve-hugging dresses, Lopez has always had a secret passion for shoes, so it will be extremely interesting to see how this passion is going to be translated in the Giuseppe Zanotti x Jennifer Lopez collection.

“I’m very proud of the businesses I’ve built,” Lopez told WWD. “They’ve allowed me to bring really great product at an accessible price point. But I hadn’t done a high-end project yet and this seemed like the right time, medium and designer. I’ve always been passionate about shoes. Sometimes I even choose an outfit around my shoes.”

Jennifer Lopez x Giuseppe Zanotti Shoe Line

As for what concerns Giuseppe Zanotti’s side of the story, such news isn’t surprising either. The Italian designer has often partnered with celebrities to create one-of-a-kind collections that could appeal to the younger audience. Most recently, he collaborated with Janet Jackson, Selena Gomez and Kim Kardashian, and all those line-ups were overall highly appreciated.

The Giuseppe Zanotti x Jennifer Lopez collaboration is, however, a more thoughtful one, as the first plans were formed in Los Angeles last May. The duo wanted first to collaborate on a few custom styles but, like Lopez’ and Zanotti’s career paths, the idea evolved into something more complex. In an unexpected turn of events, Giuseppe Zanotti and Jennifer Lopez decided to work together on a full-on collection, the designs, materials and overall silhouettes of which could combine Jennifer’s iconic style with the Italian luxury house’s legacy.

“I’ve always been inspired by Jennifer and love the way she looks in my shoes,” explained Zanotti. “It was a natural evolution to collaborate together.”

As far as we know, the range includes at least a few platform sandals, pumps, open-toe booties, and even a pair of wedge sneakers embellished with crystals. Everything is going to be designed according to Lopez’ favorite colors and styles, so we probably have to wait for a lot of animal prints and shiny decorations. Needless to say, she’ll bring sexy back, for sure (sorry Justin).

“I think it goes without saying that, like every other girl, I love a killer pair of shoes,” she toldBritish Vogue. “Whether I’m walking the red carpet or dressed casually, the right shoes complete my outfit to make me feel beautiful, sexy, and fearless.”

The Giuseppe Zanotti x Jennifer Lopez line (featuring both shoes and bags) is going to be available on the brand’s website and at famous department stores starting from January 2017, but is going to be shown for the very first time at the Fashion Association of New York from Aug. 2 to 4. As for the prices, it won’t be that cheap: the designs will retail from $795 to $1,995.

Kylie Jenner’s BFF Jordyn Woods Teams Up With Boohoo

Fashion

Is there anything better for a model who is paving her way for a fashion designing career in the industry than knowing that not one, but two collections will feature her name? That is the case for Jordyn Woods, a.k.a. Kylie Jenner’s BFF, who has just teamed up with Manchester-based fashion retailer Boohoo for two capsule collections.

Jordyn Woods Teams Up With Boohoo

Although not yet available to be browsed through and with no details revealed about the price tags, the first Jordyn Woods x Boohoo capsule collection will be released in mid-September, while the second one will come just in time for the winter holiday season. As for what we should expect, both the model and the label gave us a few clues regarding the overall style and attitude of the line-ups.

“My ultimate goal is to be as comfortable as possible. You can’t fully be confident when you’re uncomfortable,” firmly stated Woods, meaning that her line-up is surely born under an all-inclusive star.

Jordyn Woods, who is one of the most acclaimed and followed body-positive models of the past few years, made it very clear that her collection won’t be a plus-size one, but rather a size-inclusive one, meaning that each single staple will be available in sizes 2 to 22.

Woods, who is all about cheerful California-styled garments, with curve-hugging party dresses, tight jeans and crop-tops being her favorites, will thus not only focus on everything that any Californian It-girl would love to wear, but also will offer all those covetable things that could make anyone feel confident in her own body.

Jordyn Woods Teams Up With Boohoo

It’s going to be an easy-to-wear collection, yet with a fancy and stand-out factor that will help anyone feel on cloud nine, for sure. Boohoo’s USA Instagram account shared a few previews of the collaboration, and as far as we know, the Jordyn Woods x Boohoo September 2016 capsule collection will include at least a black body-con dress, a turtleneck cropped sweater, a bomber jacket and a pair of ripped jeans.

As for Boohoo’s CEOs and cofounders Carol Kane and Mahmud Kamani, the duo shares Woods’ same visions regarding self-confidence and inclusivity.

“As an inclusive brand, Boohoo.com is determined to create fashionable products for young girls of all sizes and continue to encourage body positivity,” they said in one of their press notes.

“There were points in my life growing up when I wanted to dress like other girls my age, but I couldn’t find clothes in my size that were as cute as theirs. With boohoo.com, I have been supported and encouraged to create something that all women can have access to and that I am proud of,” concluded Woods, and we can’t wait to see the final result of the collaborations!

Brooklyn Beckham Went Behind the Camera to Shoot Burberry’s New Brit Fragrance Campaign

Fashion

Burberry is shaking up the fashion rules on its own terms, and we already love it! With only a few hours apart from the appointment of Marco Gobbetti as the label’s CEO, Burberry finally revealed its new Brit fragrance’s campaign, exclusively shot by model Brooklyn Beckham who, for the first time, went behind the camera lens.

Brooklyn Beckham Behind the Camera for Burberry’s Brit Fragrance Campaign

Those who are fond of Burberry’s runaway shows may remember Brooklyn Beckham as one of the fashion house’s most devoted attendees on the first rows, along with his notorious family. His surname is familiar for one good reason: he is Victoria and David Beckham’s eldest son (his younger brother Romeo has starred in one of Burberry’s ad campaigns too).

Brooklyn, who is no stranger when it comes to posing for fashion campaigns, has never kept his passion for photography or his interest in the fashion industry in general a secret. Both he and the British label began teasing us about this forthcoming campaign on the main social media since January this year, making us curious about the final results.

Shot in London and with an all-British cast of newcomers, the Burberry Brit campaign proves the 17-year-old model and photographer’s burgeoning talent indeed. The model squad, which includes Ben Rees, Lewis Helim, Todd Dorigo, Eliza Thomas, Liv Mason Pearson, Maddie Demaine, Carvell Conduah and Harry Pourdjis, is seen posing in various locations, which all manage to combine Burberry’s classic style with Beckham’s more street-style/urban-chic fresh attitude.

Along with the ad campaign’s pictures, Beckham also worked on a short video and posters, the latter of which will let the customers choose among a grand total of 36 limited-edition pictures available in selected retailers and Burberry stores.

Artfully arranged and well-balanced, the campaign’s pictures undeniably reveal Brooklyn Beckham’s keen eye for proportions and elegance. That has, however, not stopped the critics from expressing their disagreement ever since the news about Brooklyn working on a Burberry campaign hit the headlines in January.

While Burberry’s (at this point former) CEO Christopher Bailey was praising Beckham’s qualities and diligence as a photographer in an interview with various newspapers, some of the world’s leading fashion photographers were expressing their frustration. According to them, Brooklyn has not accomplished all the achievements a photographer needs to shoot such an important campaign and, among other things, his work might even be the result of a sheer nepotism.

“Brooklyn has a really great eye for image, and Instagram works brilliantly for him as a platform to showcase his work,” Bailey told the Daily Mail.

Aside from the criticism, if you are interested in the newest Burberry Brit fragrance, it is finally available for both men and women in stores, and it comes in six different versions.

Vetements Spring/Summer 2017 Collection Unveiled At Couture Fashion Week

Fashion

The Vetements spring/summer 2017 RTW collection was definitely one of the most anticipated runaway shows of the year, which was finally held at the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, featuring 18 collaborations and absolutely meeting our great expectations.

Vetements Spring/Summer 2017 Collection

With its spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear show, Vetements broke all the fashion rules, confirming its position as the anti-fashion label par excellence. Although recently appointed as Balenciaga’s creative director, Vetements’ Demna Gvasalia is clearly keeping Balenciaga’s signature style off from that of Vetements, with the French Collective’s notorious street-style allure always rocking the runaways.

Running from the 3rd to the 7th of July, this Haute Couture Fashion Week gave the unique chance to some labels to unveil their SS 2017 RTW collections too, alternating thus super-opulent shows, such as those of Guo Pei and Zuhair Muhad, with those of not only Vetemets but also Francesco Scognamiglio and Iris Van Herpen. Special guest Vetements got the opportunity to showcase its RTW collection in the halls of the historic Galeries Lafayette, which further implements the contrasting motif this couture week is about to embrace.

As if unveiling a unisex RTW collection at an haute couture-dedicated week wasn’t enough in terms of subverting the (fashion) rules, Gvasalia went further into his anti-fashion statement by asking 18 brands to collaborate on the collection, letting thus labels such as Levi’s, Reebok, Champion and Carhartt be part of the show.

Vetements Spring/Summer 2017 Collection

In contrast to what Gvasalia usually offers to his audience, namely big bold logos, this time around he opted for more discreet looks, leaving it up to the lines and cuts of the ensembles to speak for the collective’s way of perceiving fashion.

The line-up could thus be regarded as a well-served potpourri of soon-to-be must-have staples, with Vetements’ own versions of the Carhartt workwear, Doc Martens boots, Levi’s denims and Juicy Couture tracksuits surely waiting to fly off the shelves in the blink of an eye (be quick if you like any of the pieces!).

Aside from the aforementioned collaborations, Vetements kept up with its signature style, focusing on oversized silhouettes and deconstructed staples that perfectly mix Margiela’s conceptual fashion with the coziest street-style fashion one could possibly ever dream of.

Vetements Spring/Summer 2017 Collection

The genderless theme was strong in this collection too not just because of Gvasalia’s decision to let both male and female models walk the runaway show. Both he and those at the Vetements Studio decided to intertwine what’s conventionally regarded as feminine with all things masculine, combining, for instance, laced-up sandals with mannish Oxford shirts, as well as tight boots with button-down shirts.

Denim overalls got alternated with layered jackets and shirts, with sleek curve-hugging pencil trousers paving down the way for one of the best heroin-chic-approved looks ever. According to Vetements, the upcoming spring and summer seasons will also change the rules for what concerns sexiness, with deconstructed workwear adding an unconventional kind of edginess to any wardrobe.

Vetements Spring/Summer 2017 Collection

Oversized hoodies remind us of the collective’s first staples, while metallic boots help us understand what we are about to see during Vetements’ future shows.

Windbreakers and slightly conventionally feminine staples made their appearance too, just to make us wonder once again: “who decides what is ugly and what is beautiful?”

NARS Powerfall Fall 2016 Makeup Collection

Fashion

They say the advent of fall will be just awesome in the beauty arena, with dashes of Afro-American nude, au naturel elegance of ‘70s with caramel and espresso shades diffusing dizzy aroma around. It is François Nars standing behind this beauty hubbub by launching his new NARS Powerfall fall 2016 makeup collection that is set to hit the market in mid-July at NARS Cosmetics and on August 1st at other retailers, like SephoraNordstrom and Barneys.

NARS Powerfall Fall 2016 Makeup Collection

The collection will include 3 dual-intensity eyeshadows, 2 contour blushes, 2 new velvet matte lip pencils and 9 new velvet eyeliners – the whole monty meant to emulate the characters played by American actress Pam Grier, who served as the great inspiration for the creation of the lineup.

“The characters Grier played in those [’70s] movies were strong and assertive, and her look was tough, but at the same time never hard,” says Nars. “Instead of a lot of color, her makeup was more natural. The campaign references those characters and that time period with the contouring on the cheeks and the more natural palette.”

And in order to convert his great idea into reality François Nars placed his trust in the African chocolate girl Aya Jones. With an Afro hairstyle, reverse cat eyes, full nude lips and perfectly contoured cheeks, Aya comes as the best embodiment of Pam Grier’s beauty pattern. Explore the collection for your future second-to-none fall beauty moments:

NARS Powerfall Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00)

This Allure Best of Beauty winner eyeshadow is now launched in brand new white gold, deep indigo and rose gold shades. With its feature to be used both dry and wet, the eyeshadow will veil your eyelids either with a sheer soft touch or with high-intensity saturated luxury. Check the shades below:

• Antares – iridescent white gold
• Arcturus – shimmering deep indigo
• Rigel – shimmering rose gold

NARS Powerfall Fall 2016 Makeup Collection

NARS Powerfall Contour Blush ($42.00)

To create elegantly sculpted cheeks a la Pam Grier, this contour blush to be released in two color variations will work the best.

You can check the shades below:

• Melina – café au lait / espresso
• Talia – light caramel / nutmeg

NARS Powerfall Velvet Eyeliner ($24.00)

When it comes to accentuating eyes, here in this zone you will not have any deficiency as the NARS Powerfall 2016 collection is launching the whole 9 eyeliners with a velvety feeling in all the jewel tones possible. You can check the shades below and invest in several shades at a time:

Givenchy Couture Fall 2016 Looks from Menswear Runway Show

Fashion

Givenchy is slowly getting us used to its It-squad of supermodels that strives to change the way we treat fashion (like we did in the Nineties), and the latest Givenchy Couture fall 2016 collection’s runaway show is here to prove it once again. The show reminded us also of another trend that could become a common practice in the near future: showcasing men’s and womenswear line-ups together.

Givenchy Couture Fall 2016 Collection

Riccardo Tisci unveiled both his Givenchy spring 2017 menswear and the Givenchy Couture fall 2016 womenswear collections together in Paris, and all the looks showcased perfectly recalled the iconic, edgy approach the Italian designer loves to take when it comes to haute couture.

As for the models, who had the chance to be the first to wear Tisci’s couture creations, Kendall Jenner, Mariacarla Boscono, Irina Shayk and Bella Hadid were asked to join the catwalk along with Lea T, Joan Smalls, Natalia Vodianova and Yasmin Wijnaldum. Powerful and iconic, the squad features both longtime catwalk habitué Shayk and newly acclaimed models, such as Gigi Hadid’s sister Bella, whose first ever runaway experience was Chanel’s couture show back in January.

Tisci also tapped transgender model Lea T to walk for his show, who, besides being one of the most iconic and beloved models of the moment, reminds us about Tisci’s commitment in making the industry a more inclusive and accepting environment indeed.

As for the looks we spotted at the show, the overall theme was all about the Twenties and Thirties, with looks that combined gender-bender patterns with evening outfits that channeled pure femininity and elegance. All of the looks created an intriguing contrast with the men’s collection, the warrior-like ensembles and overall black and military green color palette of which gave the whole show a sort of street-wear and slightly futuristic allure that was a pure pleasure to watch.

Givenchy Couture Fall 2016 Collection

Although greatly varying in style, all of the aforementioned models wore one thing in common: ladylike drop earrings with gem embellishments. Although small details, these accessories enhanced the models’ facial features, just like the side-parted, super-sleek hairstyles with an edgy wet effect.

Jenner’s look kind of recalled Kris Jenner’s Great Gatsby themed birthday party. Still, at Tisci’s runaway show Kendall was seen showing off a more ladylike dress with frilled details and a one-shoulder neckline that got revamped with a modern black pattern underneath. A more mannish design was instead Shayk’s choice, whose embellished coat was one of the collection’s key staples.

Sweetheart necklines, wrapped tops and quirky shirtdresses were some of the most noteworthy designs at the show, with ties keeping the attention high on the whole gender-bender theme.
