Lookbook: Christopher Kane for Topshop

Bust Cup DressChristopher Kane’s Topshop line is finally here, and the folks at British retail chain offer us a peek with the collection’s lookbook.

Although the line isn’t due in stores until next month, much buzz has been circulating around the Versace designer’s 39 pieces. By the looks of the photos (seen after the jump), it is obvious as to why the hype has originated.

The collection, ranging from $60 for a scarf to $310 for a dress, unfortunately isn’t the cheapest. With dresses like these, however, I think that I can make quite the exception!

The line is expected to come complete with shoes and bags.

Suspense Builds For Ashish Arrival at Topshop

Ashish boots for Topshop

Topshop‘s bloggers gave us a very nice peek at the boots coming straight from Ashish’s Fall/Winter 2009 collection, and boy do I wish I lived in London right now! Of course, there’s New York, but they’ll probably be gone in three seconds once they’re on the floor. Or maybe us online buyers have a glimpse of hope? Probably not, but I’m being optimistic here.

The boots hit stores next week.

Fashionistas can expect a Topshop line from Geri Halliwell

Topshop expecting a line from Ginger Spice

As designers, models, and actresses of all shapes and sizes keep creating lines for H&M, Target, and Topshop, Geri Halliwell is now rumored to add herself to the long list of “designers.”

The former Spice Girl (who obviously was the first to deny pants among the current Lady Gaga-led revolution) recently met with Sir Philip Green, who owns the Topshop line. In all honesty, when any celebrity pops in for a cup of tea with the British billionaire, there’s a very good chance that there’s a Topshop line to follow.

The source claims that Geri is due to design a fashion range targeted towards women a bit older than the usual Topshop fair.

I cannot wait!

Oh yeah, I forgot that there’s only one Topshop in the States still. Argh!

Christopher Kane Answers Your Questions

Christopher Kane for TopshopScottish designer Christopher Kane actually wants to give you the time of day! In an effort to gauge interest in the unveiling of his Topshop line due this Fall, Kane will be answering questions on their blog.

While this isn’t the first time that he has collaborated with Topshop, this will be his largest at 39 pieces (shoes and bags, too!).

“This is more than a capsule collection. It’s proper: with bags, shoes, knitwear and dresses. It’s nothing like any other work I’ve done in the past. Everything is a bit ‘wow.’ But If I tell you any more, I’ll be giving the theme away,” the designer explained to Grazia‘s Melanie Rickey.

If you’ve got anything about him that’s picking your brain, now’s the time to ask! Post up your questions on Topshop’s blog before this Wednesday, June 17th. Hurry and don’t waste space with incompetent questions!

Mariah Carey auctioning off dress on eBay

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Designers, News, Women, Dresses,

Mariah Carey dress auctionMariah Carey is selling one of her rare dresses on eBay.The dress is a hot pink, fishtailed asymmetric frock, and the goal of the auction is to raise money for breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The gown was created by Julian Contreras as part of a competition where the singer asked fans to design a dress inspired by her Deicious Pink fragrance, and it is one of only three in existence. Mariah was last seen wearing the dress on a dinner date with husband Nick Cannon in April.

The close-fitting dress will be listed until May 30. Mariah is not the only celebrity to be selling her property on eBay. Gwyneth Paltrow recently offered garments - including a Burberry dress and a Topshop trench coat - on the auction website, with all funds going to the Robin Hood Foundation which helps fight poverty in New York. Jessica Alba has been selling her daughter’s old clothes on eBay, as she recently placed a number of items on the bidding website in aid of charity, including some of 11-month-old Honor’s old garments, Hello Kitty rain gear and a limited-edition Maclaren Juicy Couture Ruder Stroller. All proceeds from Jessica’s sale went to the Clean Water Initiative, which aims to provide all babies with access to fresh water.
