It’s clearly a good week for shoes. One day after Aldo’s Ostwald Helgason collaboration launches, J.Crew‘s equally quirky London designer collection hits the web this Wednesday on April 23, 2014. The much-anticipated Sophia Webster for J.Crew capsule photos have just been released and the shoes are just as cute, colourful and covetable as we expected. The collection of patterned kitten heels, lace-up sandals and T-straps will range from $320-$695, which while steep is still about half of Webster’s signature line pricepoints.

However cool you thought your Saturday night was, Alexander Wang probably has you beat. Again. The designer announced his upcoming collaboration with H&M last night, which in and of itself is a big deal. He’s the first-ever American designer to collaborate with the brand. He’s also just a liiiitle busy lately, but hey. Why not make top the major with more major—a throw down dance party at Coachella featuring surprise performances by Iggy Azealea, Major Lazer and Diplo. The designer also used the announcement to launch his Instagram account, which previously stayed update-less for two years. “We were really waiting for the right moment to do something with it and find the right project. We kept it going and it kind of accumulated followers without any posts and we thought, what a great idea for the first post to be this, so we did a really fun video,” the designer told WWD.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. After a successful season as the face of Louis Vuitton handbags, Michelle Williams is back with an even prettier campaign for Spring 2014. Photographed by Peter Lindbergh, the shots depict the actress in a myriad of springy modes: in pastel lipstick, on a bike, in a raglan tee. She’s beautiful; the bags are beautiful… what more can I say? Maybe just that “I don’t want to wait (for these new spring arrivals…)”

After 4 years hiatus, Kate Moss has reprised her mega successful collaboration with Topshop for Spring 2014, bringing her babeular boho look back with 43 pieces launching at the end of this month. The latest collection features a Kate prescription for every mode: pyjama time, cocktail hour and “Baeraic dressing” a.k.a dressing for strictly beachside days. As well as her signature gypsy-like wisps, the collection features ever-popular motifs like Aztec prints, sequined stars and plenty of shimmer fringe. The collection also boasts a more luxe approach, using silk chiffon, butter soft suede and intricate lace.

“I love the whole process of designing, from hanging out with the girls in the design team, building the concept, getting excited about seeing the various stages of sampling, making tweaks and improvements and then seeing the final collection coming together,” says Moss via press release. We dig it too, girl.

Rumour mill: Is Uniqlo opening in Toronto?

Toronto is a hotbed for international retailers. That, and international retailer rumours. From the real (Nordstrom) to the still TBD (Bloomingdales), there always seems to be something to talk about. While we don’t like to pander to gossip and industry rumblings (or maybe we do), this latest rumour is too good to ignore. Japanese retailer Uniqlo is apparently in serious talks with Canadian retailers in an attempt to bring their famous $79 cashmere sweaters to our very own Yorkdale Shopping Centre. We don’t wanna jinx it, but we’re seriously giddy.

Google Glass sets its sights on fashion with Luxottica partnership

Google Glass Luxottica

For the past few years, we’ve become accustomed to fashion titans like Diane Von Furstenberg and Nina Garcia sporting Google Glass to fashion shows. Even before they hit stands, the first-edition prototypes have become the ultimate in techy covetables at $1,500 a pop. For those who have actually tried a pair though, you’d know that they ain’t so fierce IRL. Clunky and, well, utilitarian, they look more like fourth grade nerd glasses than they do stylish.

That’s all set to change, with today’s Google announcement of a partnership with luxury eyewear conglomerate Luxottica Group. Aiming to bring the Glass to a wider consumer basse, two of the group’s biggest brands, Ray-Ban and Oakley, will be the first to reveal styles in 2015.

“We believe that a strategic partnership with a leading player like Google is the ideal platform for developing a new way forward in our industry and answering the evolving needs of consumers on a global scale,” Luxottica Chief Executive Officer Andrea Guerra said via press release.


Video: Behind the scenes with Beyoncé’s tour stylists

Comments

While some might have you believe that the magic of Beyoncé is just that, magic, the queen is revealing the team of stylists that help her prep for daily global domination. The latest installment in a string of behind-the-scenes tour videos released on her YouTube page provides some serious designer eye-candy as we delve into the wonderful world of wardrobe for the Mrs. Carter World Tour. In the video, tour stylists Ty Hunter and Raquel Smith give an up close and personal look at all the different tour outfits and share how looks are chosen, how they come together and some insider details on those quick costume changes (think layers) from Givenchy to Ungaro and beyond. One Versace employee shares how long it took to make that insane white and silver fitted number (spoiler: a paltry 300 hours). For the Crazy in Love segment, the secret to better on-stage twerking is revealed and it includes plenty of ruffled patent leather.
