From new collaborations to questionable articles on our identity, we’re bringing you to the heart of fashion by revealing the top fashion stories of this week.
Erdem have got a thing for H&M
- There are very few things that could lure us out at 3 am, H&M’s new collaboration with one of London Fashion Week’s favourite designers, Erdem Moralioglu, could be a close contender. Erdem are the latest brand to team up with the high street brand and their collection will bring the romantic and feminine silhouettes, Erdem are well known for. The elegant designs with an affordable high street price tag, will form a collection you won’t want to miss, (so get out your sleeping bags at the ready). The collection goes on sale on November the 2nd, so keep your eyes peeled. Watch out for the fluttery florals as this new trend will blow you away. Even in the windy Summer, we are having, florals are in. With whimsical dresses and billowing blouses, embroidery will be stealing the show at London Fashion Week.
Say a prayer for the MET Gala
The event of the year has been the talk of the town this week. The theme for 2018’s, MET Gala has been released and it’s an interesting one. The theme of ‘fashion + religion’, will be a must see on Monday 7th May 2018. Possibly the most controversial one to date. With Dolce & Gabbana using the likes of Madonna and Catholic symbols in their 2013 collection, and Jean Paul Gaultier creating the iconography of Jesus and the Virgin Mary in his respective brand, who knows what will be showcased on the celebrities. Can Rihanna and Katy Perry’s extreme dresses be outdone this year?
What is gender fluidity?
Well, US Vogue certainly missed the mark on their definition on their latest cover. The magazine had to apologise for misunderstanding the meaning on their cover featuring singer Zayn Malik and his model girlfriend Gigi Hadid. Vogue claimed they were ‘embracing gender fluidity’, with the couple discussing how they borrow each other’s clothes and expressing that there should not be separate menswear and womenswear, as each gender should feel free to wear either. With the article based solely on the couple, instead of the more important topic of gender fluidity, Vogue was slammed with disappointment from their readers. I mean do you think the female model, styled in a suit with slicked back hair promotes a positive outlook for gender fluidity? Or is it just for show?
A new high for nail biters
Who knew biting your nails would have its own benefits one day? Marijuana comes in many forms for the masses to enjoy. We recently came across a social media post introducing us to weed manicured nails. The trend is currently making waves in pot legalised states in the US and consists of weed being sealed into whatever top coat you choose for your gorgeous tips.
