Yvan Mispelaere leaves his Creative Director position at Diane von Furstenberg

The world is still buzzing after Diane von Furstenberg’s incredible New York Fashion Week show which brought technology and fashion together, but now there’s something else going on with the label too. DVF creative director Yvan Mispelaere has just announced that he’ll be stepping down from his post after two and a half years of working with the label. “I am so grateful for the contributions Yvan brought to DVF and fully support him as he takes the next step in his career,” Diane said. “Yvan joined us almost three years ago and has added enormous value.  He also put together a highly skilled design team to support our growth both in fashion and accessories. “I am very thankful and proud of his accomplishments here and I look forward to our strong team continuing to create the signature DVF look for when everywhere.” And before we get a repeat of the “who will replace John Galliano at Dior” saga, it’s being reported that no one else will take the job, and the design team will be led by Diane herself. We’ll keep you posted about Yvan’s new job! [Image]

Google Glasses unveiled at Diane von Furstenberg’s SS13 NYFW show

Technology and fashion have been working together rather seamlessly for years now, but Google has once again brought something new to the table – and at New York Fashion Week of all places! Tech-geeks might have already heard about the Google Glasses – a new headset that allows users to impose digital images on the world around them – but NYFW was the first time anyone outside of the Google family had experienced them. Diane von Furstenberg – a revolutionary in her own right – seemed like the perfect designer to test them out, as she used the glasses to not only showcase her new collection on the runway, but to also give users an insight into what goes on behind-the-scene too. “Today we’re thrilled to collaborate with the visionary and celebrated designer Diane von Furstenberg,” reads a press release from Google. “For the past week, we’ve been using Glass to capture the DVF creative process from entirely new perspectives. Soon you’ll get a glimpse into what it’s like to design, prepare and experience the DVF show at New York Fashion Week through Diane’s eyes and a few other views.” A short film entitled DVF through Glass will be released on Thursday September 13th on the DVF Google+ page as well as Google’s YouTube channel. There’s no word on when the glasses will be available to the public, but would you guys even wear them? What do you think of their appearance? Star Trek springs to mind if you ask us…

New York Fashion Week S/S13 finally kicks off!

You instantly know what Fashion Month is going to be like after the first few shows of New York Fashion Week, and judging by what we’ve already seen in the Big Apple, we’re going to be in for a real treat this September! We’ve been monitoring NYFW very closely from the moment the first model stepped onto the catwalk, and already have our favourites from the likes of Jason Wu, Altuzarra, DKNY and Victoria Beckham among others. Jason Wu’s outing also went down a storm, as the designer incorporated elegant materials with tougher edgier ones, achieving full-on contrasting looks. One of our faves for sure… kind of like 50 Shades of Grey meets Downton Abbey?  And we assume we weren’t the only ones really looking forward to Victoria Beckham’s new line since – judging by last season – every big name celeb will probably be stepping out in one of her creations at least once this year! We were really keen on seeing award-winning Altuzarra showcase his spring/summer 2013 collection too, and we can definitely see why he was victorious. You may remember that we’re mildly obsessed with Awards Season, so are always on the look-out for ultra-glam dresses for the occasion. This season, we got our first taste of red carpet glamour from Monique Lhuillier (standard!) as she gave her evening dresses an aquatic theme. Simply gorgeous! DKNY gave us another instantly wearable collection with a range of standalone pieces and sexy separates for when you want to mix it up, while Diane von Furstenberg presented gorgeous, flattering, empowering pieces If we had the funds, we would shop our entire holiday wardrobe from DVF! Stay tuned for more coverage tomorrow! What has been your favourite look/collection so far?

Arizona Muse poses for Diane von Furstenberg’s autumn/winter 2012 ads

Just in case you hadn’t worked it out from the rather, er, ‘subtle’ lettering, the ad campaign above is indeed for the one and only Diane von Furstenberg! Remember DVF’s surreal spring/summer 2012 ad campaign images that had no faces in them so we could imagine ourselves in the clothes instead of the models? Well, although the autumn/winter 2012 ones sadly don’t have a mirror on them (boo), we think there’s something still quite surreal about them, don’t you? And to be honest, we think we’d rather look at Arizona Muse’s lovely face as opposed to our own, so everything worked out for the best in the end! The ad campaign was photographed by Camilla Akrans, and was apparently shot in an abandoned air strip, which we think is pretty interesting. Definitely mixes things up a bit! Click here to see more pics of Arizona doing her thing, and to get a cheeky behind the scenes look at the gorgeous model at work. [Fashion Etc]

5 investment-worthy pieces to ease you into Fall

Struggling to step into autumn style? Fear not, we’re here to help! We’ve picked out 5 key pieces that’ll help you ease into Fall 2012 without the pressure of committing to a frighteningly experimental wardrobe! Mannish coats and jackets were all the rage on the autumn/winter 2012 runways, with YSL, Proenza Schouler and Christopher Kane giving us a taste of what to be seen in come September. Berry hues were a major hit in line with autumn’s moody attitude, while printed trousers are well and truly here to stay, thanks to the psychedelic versions we witnessed at Prada. Purple is the SS’12-sorbet-Louis-Vuitton-lemon of Fall 2012, and set to be splashed across every possible item of clothing this season; covet the colour in a pair of ultra-feminine, easy-to-wear courts. And finally, the finishing touch is an uber-desirable bag, naturally. But we’re not talking ‘It’ bag material here. For Fall handbags have undergone a chic-over: stripped down to the essential parts, with a minimal but polished feel. The Pashli satchel is the perfect accessory addition to any discerning fashionistas wardrobe. Black Origami Collar Melton Wool Coat by Vivienne Westwood, £578 Clem Sweater by DAGMAR, £134 Cream And Black Dani Printed Trousers by By Malene Birger, £101 Anette High Pointed Court Shoe by Diane Von Furstenberg, £215 Petrol Green Pashli Satchel by 3.1 Phillip Lim, £830

What did Kate Middleton and sister Pippa wear to the Wimbledon Men’s Final yesterday?

We all tuned in to watch the Andy Murray/Roger Federer Wimbledon Men’s Final yesterday afternoon, although we have to admit that we enjoyed the cheeky glimpses of all the famous faces in the audience just as much as the nail-biting match itself. Kate Middleton looked elegant as always, even despite the weather and the tense game! The Duchess of Cambridge wowed in a white Joseph crepe dress and matching jacket, which she teamed with her Diane Von Furstenberg printed clutch to jazz up her otherwise plain ensemble. Not one to be outdone, Pippa Middleton also looked the part as she sat next to her sister in a blue, printed Project D dress with very on-trend peplum detailing. Which Middleton look do you guys prefer? Ps: we’d just like to say a huge “well done!” to Andy who, despite missing out on the trophy, still did us proud!
