Today we're celebrating the style of Miranda Kerr. The model who is perhaps best known as a Victoria's Secret angel always looks immaculate. She gave birth to her son Flynn (with actor husband Orlando Bloom) last year and was soon back in shape and back on the catwalk. Click through to see some of Miranda's most recent style highlights.
For men, dressing for wedding season can become increasingly frustrating. You seem to end up wearing the same suit to every formal event throughout the summer and it can be difficult to create a unique look. This summer, there are a lot of grey suits available which may not be groundbreaking, but could give you enough of an edge to stand out. Mr. Start's grey double breasted suit (£695) is stylish and timeless. If double breasted isn't your style, then how about a classic three piece style(£795)? This would surely be worth the investment. You can shop more grey suits below.
Whilst on the road with the Fashion Fringe team a few weeks ago, I couldn't resist grabbing ten minutes with Colin McDowell. The very well respected fashion journalist and historian founded Fashion Fringe in 2003 as part of a collaboration with IMG and has written for nearly every British publication you can name, including The Sunday Times and the Business of Fashion. Read below to hear from Colin about upcoming designers to watch and the recent changes in the fashion industry. Which designers are names to watch? Christopher Kane, I think he’s still got a long way to go and Erdem. In terms of Fashion Fringe, Corrie Nielsen could be an amazing designer. It’s early days to see whether she’ll be able to keep going in the way she’s going because those clothes are very expensive. Fyodor Golan really should be doing couture, and I’m going to do something about that. I also like Richard Nicoll very much, I think he’s a nice designer. How do you feel about the recent musical chairs of the fashion industry? I feel really sorry for Stefano Pilati. He’s had this thing hanging over him for a year, how could anybody concentrate or have confidence to have a good show? I think that journalists have been disgraceful. I think he did some very good collections, but I don’t think he got the idea of Yves Saint Laurent quite as fully as he should, but he was only there a few years and it takes time. The person who should have stayed there was Alber Elbaz. One of my favourite people and one of my favourite designers. I’m feeling a bit worried about Raf Simmons, where the hell is he going to end up? He’s been touted for every job. I think the most exciting designer actually is Sarah Burton. I think it is amazing how in just a couple of collections she has really made her Alexander McQueen. It’s her. It’s got a lot of his thinking, but remember it’s her thinking as well. She was with him from the very beginning so they worked together, like man and wife virtually. But now she’s putting in her own, slightly softer feel which is right for the moment. I think she’s great and she is so nice. She is so normal! One who is not modest and normal is Hedi Slimane. I am very interested to see what he does at YSL. They’re taking a big risk because he is a cult figure, but a cult figure with people who can’t afford the clothes. I am interested to know how well he’ll do womenswear. He’s certainly changed the look of young men! All these skinny little looks and dropped bottoms, it all came from him. Hedi is a creative force, I was devastated when he walked away from it, but that shows the strength of the man of course. I think he’ll do extraordinary things for them. I think he’s a very clever operator and a very thoughtful man.
The fashion industry's game of musical chairs provided one conclusion today as Hedi Slimane was confirmed as the new creative director of Yves Saint Laurent. Stefano Pilati's departure from the brand was announced at the end of last month and he presented his final collection as part of Paris Fashion Week on Monday.
This is Slimane's first womenswear role, as he famously made his name at Dior Homme with skinny fit suits. He had been taking a few years out of fashion since his Dior role to focus on photography which he looks set to continue with at YSL. An official statement read, "Slimane will assume total creative responsibility for the brand image and all its collections." It went on to include a quote from Paul Deneve, Chief Executive Officer of Yves Saint Laurent saying, "Hedi Slimane’s exceptional talent and understanding of the spirit of Yves Saint Laurent heralds a promising new chapter in the story of the maison."
François-Henri Pinault, PPR Chairman and CEO added, “As one of the most important French fashion houses, Yves Saint Laurent today possesses formidable potential, which I am confident will be successfully harnessed and revealed through the vision of Hedi Slimane.” Slimane will present his first collection for YSL for resort in June.
