Karl Lagerfeld is among the most fabulous people, ever--he's the head designer for Chanel, Fendi, and his own eponymous labels; he calls the world's most stylish and glamorous celebrities (including members of royalty) his friends; and his nickname is the Kaiser, for pete's sake. Obviously the man should be immortalized with his own Barbie doll! Mattel, the creator of the iconic Barbie doll, has announced that come fall, a Kaiser-inspired doll called Barbie Lagerfeld will be on shelves. The doll will be dressed in a similar look to Lagerfeld's standard uniform: a white collared shirt, a fitted black blazer, skinny pants, black sunglasses, Chanel-esque chain necklaces and fingerless driving gloves.
We're always excited when we learn about a clothing label launching a plus size line, so the news that Mango is launching Violeta by Mango, its line of fashion for curvy girls, in the US we nearly did a backflip. The line, which before now was only available in France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Turkey, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Spain, will include over 1,000 products, with sizes ranging from US 12 to 18. And the pieces are every bit as stylish as you would expect from Mango--think leather accents, animal prints, military details, and '60s inspiration. Violeta is available in Mango stores, as well as online.
Kate Spade is easily among the top favorite labels of just about every girl we know (and that's a lot of girls)--every piece is girly and colorful and just so darn cute! Naturally, the news that a Kate Spade line of swimwear is coming soon is good news. The line will include both mix-and-match bikinis and one-pieces, with prices ranging from $120 to $200. And if you're wondering what a Kate Spade swimsuit might look like, the label's chief creative officer has the answer. "It’s retro reimagined, classic with a twist, and pays homage to our heritage whether with a classic black and white stripe, a graphic dot or an artisanal print."
