Fashion Fix

I know this post usually comes on a Monday to kick start a fabulous week…but I was so shattered from work. I want my company to support a local children’s hospice and arranged a visit to see it yesterday morning, it was emotionally draining to say the least. But, the good thing is that I think it’s in the bag, I’ve written the marketing plan for our fundraising objectives and hopefully next year I’ll be writing to say I’ve achieved the £10k fundraising target I set :o) Anyway, enough of work and back to fashion…

Comme @ H&M sets its limits

Remember the scenes of chaos during the launch of every single H&M collaboration? I was there to witness scenes of people literally scooping up armfuls of Stella for H&M and it was a frightening scene, much worse than the Selfridges sale! H&M is hoping for a little more decorum this Thursday when Comme Des Garcon for H&M is launched, there’s a 2 item limit per person. Will you be attending??

Marion Couillard for Lady Dior

Just seen the images of Marion Couillard in the Lady Dior campaign. She looks stunning, I’ve got to admit, I haven’t seen that movie she was in but I kinda like her for some reason. She’s beautiful and got a kind of different vibe about her. But…this image is terribly photoshopped AND is it just me or is she walking on thin air?! 

Bad Times for Danish Labels

Inevitably, during these tumultuous times, it’s the smaller businesses who will not weather the economic storm. It’s always going to be easier if you have the support of the LVMH group or PPR, so it’s not really surprising to learn that two labels founded by Danish designers have folded; Jens Laugesen follows the closure of Camilla Staerk last month. Both cited lack of investment and declining sales for the closures.

    Too bad about the Danish designers. If any business can keep going during these times, it’s a miracle. Wish a miracle for me!

    Thanks for all these news, I may take a look a the chaos, for the fun. By the way, it’s Marion Cotillard and she looks quite stunning in the Lady Dior campaign.
