Under the radar: Valentino x Gap

Posted in Collaborations by Nneoma Ulu on November 18, 2010

Only 5 more sleeps till Lanvin for H&M hit stores in the UK. Whilst people are figuring out their best method of attack and H&M offering guidelines on how to shop, Gap are quietly preparing to launch a new flagship store in Milan and have collaborated with none other than Valentino to mark this joyous occaion. The collection hits stores on November 20th (same day as Lanvin for H&M in USA) and will be available at Gap’s new flagship store in Milan, Dover Street Market in London, Colette in Paris and Gap’s London flagship. It’s a ruffle extravaganza…

Colette does Superhero

Posted in Happenings, High Street Fashion by Nneoma Ulu on May 30, 2010

I often have nightmares about this Luella t-shirt and recall how just as I go to enter in my card details on net-a-porter.com, it sells out. Then I wake up and realise that this nightmare is a dark and depressing reality.

Now thanks to Colette and DC Comics, I may be able to own something even better. DC Comics, think Batman, Superman, etc is celebrating their 75th anniversary and Colette is serving up a serious birthday pressie. Colette has commissioned a range of superhero-themed designer accessories and clothing items for its latest window, due to be unveiled tomorrow. The line features these Catwoman thigh-highs by Roger Vivier, Green Lantern gloves designed by Karl Lagerfeld and a Dog Batman T-shirt by Lanvin men’s wear designer Lucas Ossendrijver.

I think these boots might stop the nightmares.
