Liv Tyler x Elle UK

The lovely & leggy Liv Tyler graces the cover of the March issue of Elle UK.  After polling readers who they'd most like to see on the cover, Liv was the winner!  She's always been a favorite of mine, and I think she looks fabulous.

 


Lara Stone x Versus

Feb03

Donatella Versace has brought back the Versus scent, an iconic product in the brand's history. Versus was created in 1992, and now here's a revamped version made of new, more fresh and feminine ingredients.

For Donatella Versace, Versus is pure energy. The fragrance is based on a blend of contrasts ranging from romanticism to femininity.

The top notes feature sour apple and lemon, while the heart is of orange and rose. Patchouli lends some warm notes to complete the scent.

Lara Stone is the new face of Versus for Versace fragrance.  Check out her sexy new commercial directed by Craig McDean.


Hello Kitty x A Bathing Ape

Feb03

Move over Pharrell Williams. Music and streetwear impresario Nigo has a new creative partner: Hello Kitty.

The designer behind the cult brand A Bathing Ape has just struck a licensing deal with Sanrio, the parent company of Hello Kitty, to develop its Baby Milo character into a range of novelty items and accessories. But the companies’ partnership could conceivably extend well past vinyl tote bags and plush toys. Representatives on both sides indicated — albeit in a half-joking manner — that if the pair take a real shine to each other, Sanrio might even consider investing in the edgy label known for its colorful sneakers, quirky T-shirts and camouflage jackets, mainly for men.

Ray Hatoyama, Sanrio’s San Francisco-based chief operating officer, said the Japanese company would be “potentially” interested in buying a stake in Bape’s business. “Maybe,” he laughed, adding his job’s responsibilities include mergers and acquisitions. “I’m open to anything.”

Meanwhile, Bape’s founder and designer, Nigo, whose real name is Tomoaki Nagao, acknowledged he’s open to the idea of selling a stake in his company, Nowhere Co. Ltd., if the right opportunity comes along.

“I am always flexible. For example, I might think it to be a good idea if Sanrio were to say, have a 40 percent stake,” he said with a chuckle.

Nowhere developed the Baby Milo character, a young gorilla with a circular head and an orange face, in 2000 and has featured his likeness on apparel and accessories for both children and adults.

“In the character goods business, Sanrio is a pro among pros. I’ve taken really good care of the Baby Milo character thus far, and with this new opportunity I would like to see him become a [Japan-wide] character,” said Nigo, who also runs his own record label as well as the Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream clothing brands in partnership with Williams.

Hatoyama said he thinks Baby Milo will help Sanrio, known for its girly cast of characters, to win over more boys and young male fans.

Sanrio’s initial product lineup, which will be expanded over time, consists of about 40 items, including children’s flip-flops, vinyl tote bags, a tent and a folding chair. The collection, which bows in April, will be sold at about 300 Sanrio stores and other sales points in Japan, but not at Bape’s own stores.

Gucci x Veruschka

Feb03

 

Gucci pulls from its archives for their new Timeless watch campaign using vintage photos of 60's model icon Veruschka. 

“The images featured in this campaign are some of my favorites from the Gucci archive,” said creative director Frida Giannini. “They perfectly illustrate not only the glamour of Gucci’s past and the many style icons who were naturally drawn to the house, but also show how this heritage can be relevant today.”
