Who benefited more from Isabel Marant for H&M?
H&M had a lot of people risking hypothermia in New York City last night and this morning.
From what time it will be available to what will be available, here’s everything you need to know.
Coach is the latest in a long line of brands to collaborate with the fashion (and playroom) icon. And for the first time ever, Barbie’s tiny, snazzy wardrobe has been produced from start to finish by the Coach design house. Meaning, everything she’s wearing, you can wear. Well, in a slightly larger size.
So in celebration of Barbie’s new clothes (and chic new ‘do–how does she keep it so shiny?), we’re taking a look back at her biggest and best designer collabs to date–and there’ve been some doozies. When it comes to amazing designer collaborations, Target and H&M have got nothing on the original Queen B: We’re talking Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Bill Blass, Vera Wang, Christian Louboutin, Dior, Versace, and more. Who needs an 11-inch tall plastic boyfriend when you’ve got Mr. de la Renta on speed dial?
Could Versace be going the way of other iconic family-owned Italian label Valentino which sold for $852 million last year?
According to WWD, an Italian paper reported that a Korean fund was in talks with Versace chairman Santo Versace to acquire his 30% stake in the company.
Now, Santo Versace has responded, calling the rumors completely false, the trade is reporting. But while Santo may not be selling his shares now, could outside investment be part of the company’s future?
Now, the question is: What sort of seismic shifts will happen in 2013? From brand expansion, to designer debuts, here are the 10 labels you’ll want to keep an eye on this year.
Click through to see which brands we think will make a splash in 2013 and why.
H&M’s limited edition collaboration launches have become famous for extremely long lines and die-hard fans camping out days before.
Today’s launch seems to have been pretty manageable so far in all major cities–perhaps thanks to H&M learning from past experience and figuring out what works, along with MMM having a more niche fan base than, say, Versace.
Still, people got in line bright and early (yesterday), Kanye lyrics were Tweeted, and everyone wanted that candy clutch (which we’ll be giving away so stay tuned). Read on for details from Paris, London, Milan and New York.
Our faith in humanity always takes a bit of a beating during designer collaboration launches–all that shoving and conniving and reselling. So it’s no surprise that over 100 pieces of Maison Martin Margiela for H&M are already on eBay–three weeks before it officially hits stores on November 15. (We saw this happen following the shopping launch parties for Jason Wu for Target as well as Versace for H&M.)
What that means is that more than a few of the lucky hundreds of fashion insiders who attended the Margiela for H&M launch party stocked up in hopes of cashing in on eBay.
