Here is a round-up of little titbits that I’ve picked up over the last week:
- Holland on the High Street Henry Holland is following in the famous footsteps of Matthew Williamson and Jasper Conran to become part of the Designers at Debenhams family, Drapers Record, reported last week. This is pretty exciting… as long as he includes wearable pieces that can be worn by anyone rather than just those expecting to be a walking fashion statement. [via Drapers Online]
- One for the Boys The Satorialist’s Scott Schuman is using both New York and London Fashion Weeks to his advantage. Following the release of the photoblogger’s first book of photographs of stylish people from around the world, he will be signing copies of his new book at Barney’s New York and Liberty of London. More excitingly, he will host the SatoriaLUST Pop-up Shop at both department stores. At Liberty, it will be hosted in the Menswear department and feature accessories that can help to transform any dull look. The pop-up will run from September 18 through 30 from 6-8pm.
- Don’t forget Christopher Kane for TopShop finally drops this week. The lookbook is live, so you can view the whole collection and pick out what you want in advance or rather plan how you are going to cope with no money for the rest of the month. I want it all!
- King George does it again. George Davies, the man who founded Next and created Asda’s George label and Marks and Spencer’s Per Una brand is doing it again. His new brand GIVe (G for George Davies, the roman numerals IV to indicate that this is the fourth brand from George, and e for eCommerce) Davies will provide ladies with “affordable luxury”. The first GIVe store will open in London’s Regent Street on September 30 followed by Bluewater, Cribbs Causeway, Kingston, Liverpool & Meadowhall on October 1. [via Brand Republic]
- Gareth Pugh’s inspiration. Just as we were getting over the fact Gareth Pugh is showing in Paris rather than at London Fashion Week, we discover that he chose to show the inspiration behind his Spring 2010 collection at New York Fashion Week. Filmmaker, Ruth Hogben, collaborated with Pugh to create the art-fashion video that was screened on the weekend online at SHOWstudio.com. [via fashionologie]
