Picture 1 of 9

Katie Grand – stylist extraordinaire and friends to the stars – has created a capsule collection for accessories label Hogan. Fittingly called Gang, Grand has enlisted some of her famous friends for the campaign shots, including Cara Delevigne, Edie Campbell and Linda Evangelista.

The collection consists of several brightly coloured wedge trainers, a pair of ballet pumps with hearts and eye-catching bags in pop-art colours. The little heart motifs are a visual reference to Love, the bi-annual style magazine Grand edits.

Speaking about the collection Grand told The Independent: “I was keen to bring a fresh sense of femininity, which is why I’ve used so much of that intense shade of pink – that has always been a favourite of mine: it’s feminine in a way that’s lively and fiery rather than demure.”

What do you think of the pieces? Is £355 too much to pay for a pair of trainers?

Meadham Kirchhoff for Amazon

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on December 17th, 2012

We’ll admit it: Amazon isn’t really the first place that pops into our heads when we get a sudden urge to update our wardrobe.

Perhaps most known for its fantastic selection of books (yes we still by paperbacks!), the online retailer aims to position itself as the go-to-place for online fashion (and everything else) with the recent launch of their new Premium Store. But that is not all. Jumping on the trend of designer collaborations (as seen with H&M and other high street stores), Amazon has also unveiled its exclusive collaboration with London-based Meadham Kirchhoff.

The capsule collection consists of four sweaters with quirky designs for £75 each.

The Kardashian Kollection: Kim and Kourtney launch exclusive range with Dorothy Perkins

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on November 9th, 2012

Kardashian fever is about to hit the UK, as the famous sisters team up with Dorothy Perkins for a exclusive clothing range.

Kim and Kourtney flew in to London last night to join Sir Philip Green at the London nightspot Aqua. Dressed in a figure hugging mini dresses (we expect nothing less from her), Kim braved the London chill to show off her famous curves – and rather orange legs. Less spraytan next time Kim! Her older sister, Kourtney opted for a more demure look, covering up in a high-neck chiffon dress from the Kollection.

Looking at the range in full, there are some items that would work for the average British woman, and some that should just stay in Reality TV world. We’re not sold on the bodycon gold dresses – a bit too in your face sparkly for our liking – but the skinny jeans and pencil skirts  might just work for our curves.

Check out a selection of the items below and shop the full Kardashian Kollecton on the Dorothy Perkins website.

Fashion Analysis: Marni for H&M collection

By Andrea Petrou on March 14th, 2012

If you didn’t fancy braving the queues and the cold to get your hands on the latest H&M designer collaboration with Marni or didn’t have much luck with the queue style website system then you’ll probably hate us today.

The capsule collection may have launched, and been snapped up quicker than you can say “credit card” but we thought the range deserved a mention anyway. Partly because of the detailing and intricacy involved.

Like Marni’s main collection, rich fabrics dominated the range appearing on voluminous skirts, silk tops and flimsy summer dresses.

The styling was less aimed at the teen market, which went crazy for H&M’s Versace collaboration, and more for a mature audience. Hemline’s were longer and tops looser.

However, they did reflect H&M’s audience with slimmer cuts and brighter, bolder colours.

Key items included the leather bag as well as statement Marni patterned scarves.
If you hurry you might still be able to get your hands on a few pieces from the range. Failing that there’s eBay.

See the gallery below for some of our fave pieces from the collection.

The collection will go on sale on March 8 in 260 stores worldwide and online and H&M are thrilled with the products.

Margareta van den Bosch, Creative Advisor for H&M said: “We all love the collection here at H&M and we believe that our customers will do the same. Marni has such a modern touch with everything they do, mixing prints and accessories in a playful but chic way. It’s fantastic to see how Consuelo Castiglioni coordinates her designs, matching new combinations of print and colour, with such incredible craftsmanship behind every piece. The collection will arrive in stores at just the perfect time, as a lovely statement for spring.”

The Marni collection is the latest designer collaboration for H&M, having previously teamed up with Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garcons, Jimmy Choo, Lanvin, and most recently Versace.

H&M team up with the costume designer from ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ to create a capsule collection inspired by protagonist Lisbeth Salander

By Andrea Petrou on October 27th, 2011

H&M have collaborated with the costume designer from ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ to create a capsule collection inspired by protagonist Lisbeth Salander.

Trish Summerville has created all the outfits for Lisbeth (played by Rooney Mara) in the US adaptation of the Swedish film and she revealed she jumped at the chance to give the troubled heroine’s clothes a more “realistic fashion feel” for the Swedish retailer.

She told WWD: “We put a lot of aged-in washes and finishes, which goes along the lines of the Salander character. In the film, her clothes are quite extreme. They’re really worn down, they’re dirty. So for us, it was taking that kind of concept and giving it more of a realistic fashion feel.”

Anna Norling, division designer at H&M, said the company wanted to make Lisbeth’s clothes more flattering and feminine.

She explained: “We were really strongly inspired by the film and especially by Trish’s styling, but the collection wouldn’t have looked as it does without H&M, because we added the fashion point of view. I’m very happy with the result and I know that Trish is as well.”

Items in the range include tribal-style earrings, a leather jacket, which comes in washed black or deep burgundy, hoodies and lace-up boots.

The collection will make its debut at Paris boutique Colette on November 28.

Cheryl Cole has designed her own shoe line

By emilyborrett on September 15th, 2011

Cheryl Cole has made her first dainty steps into the world of fashion design, as she’s just designed her first ever shoe collection.

Cheryl, everyone’s favourite Geordie lass, is collaborating with the fashion site to create her new line of limited edition shoes – and it’ll go on sale in December. We’re usually sceptical about celebrities attempting fashion design but we might leave a space on our Christmas lists, just in case..

StylistPick’s creative officer Juliet Warkentin said: “We are thrilled to be working with Cheryl. Cheryl is the style icon and is amazingly warm, a quality that has made her the nation’s favourite. We believe that the launch will have a huge fashion impact; establishing fashion’s greatest influencer as a major force in fashion design and further democratising fashion.”

Lovely little Cheryl has remembered that her fans aren’t as rich as she is and made the collection affordable as well as glam, having overseen the entire design process herself “from concept to design and packaging”.

Girls, it’s time to start learning how to totter in our heels like Cheryl. ARE YOU READY?
