In the latest edition of high-end musical chairs, Hermès has announced its new artistic director just days after Christoph Lemaire announced he was leaving the label. Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski, a 36-year-old French native with experience to rival those with much higher profiles, has joined the label, with her debut collection set for Fall 2015.

Vanhee-Cybulski’s resume is populated with notoriously press-shy labels like Maison Martin Margiela, where she worked as a member of the design studio from 2005-2008, Céline, where she worked under Phoebe Philo until 2011, and most recently The Row, where she worked hand in hand with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as design director.

“I am delighted to be joining Hermès, a house I so admire and whose values I share wholeheartedly,” said the designer via press release. Likely, that’s all we’re going to get until March 2015.

Fall 2014 Couture week has officially wrapped in Paris, and we’ve been daydreaming of the Pinterest-worthy dresses ever since.

But before you raise your white flag and think couture is only for the elites, we’d like to let you know that you too can get on the action. How?

See the sneaker collaborations »

Thanks to the likes of Phoebe Philo, Isabel Marant and of course, Yeezy, sneakers have been on a fashion upswing for the past few years. No longer just functional, they’ve risen to the top of the heap with the stylish equivalent of bells and whistles: heels, studs, snakeskin and more. Fashion’s sneaker foray has also brought forth some seriously genius high-low collaborations, including Maison Martin Margiela x Converse, Riccardo Tisci x Nike and most recently Versace for Superga. And with the athletic trend showing little signs of backing down, it’s no wonder designers are kicking up their sneaker game for yet another season.

Here, we’ve rounded up 8 amazing sneaker collaborations that have us head over high-tops.

Could the couture runways be any more bi-polar? Whereas yesterday’s recap brought forth a list of trends to watch in the coming months, today’s recap proves we’ll always be guessing.

The final day of Spring 2014 Couture Fashion Week in Paris started with everything in the junk drawer piled on one outfit at Maison Martin Margiela and ended with pale, barren latex at Viktor & Rolf.

The latter, worn by ballerinas drifting en pointe from one end of a square runway to the other, were sometimes printed with tattoo-like birds and ruffles. At the end of the performance, an ad for the duo’s new fragrance, Bonbon, revealed the scent housed in a pink bow bottle.  The scent’s face, model Edita Vilkeviciute, wears nothing but painted-on pink bows.

Rihanna Style: From pop princess to fashion allstar


Rihanna Style

See Rihanna’s style from the beginning »

There’s never a dull moment when it comes to Rihanna’s style. Since breaking onto the scene in 2005, She has transformed from a Barbadian pop princess into the badgalriri that our Instagram feeds now know and love. After dipping a toe into designerdom with Hervé Leger mini dresses and traditional floor length gowns, Rihanna’s style took a turn for the daring upon the release of her 2007 album Good Girl Gone Bad, when she ditched her long straight hair for an edgy pixie cut and her style choices followed suit.

But it was 2012 when Rihanna’s fashion choices really went into overdrive. The plunging neckline and thigh-high slit on her Armani dress paired with intricate body chains at the Grammy Awards was a taste of what was to come in the year. With help from her stylish Mel Ottenberg, the superstar favoured custom designer pieces from Kenzo, Adam Shelman and Alexander Wang for her performances on the sky-high spectacle that was her intense 777 tour, which was heavily accessorised with vintage Chanel, and Versace pieces. And without a doubt, one of our favourite Rihanna fashion moments of 2012 is when she shopped Cher Horowitz’s closet and wore a limited-edition rerun of the Calvin Klein Clueless dress. Read more »

With the end of fashion week in Toronto marking the close of Spring 2014 show season, it’s time we looked back at all the trends that emerged.
