All That Glitters Are Sequins

Brazilian label Osklen have gone back to their roots for SS10, taking inspiration from the costumes of the riotous Rio carnival.

With oversized sequins and shimmering tees making more of a statement than sparkly pasties ever could (well, almost!).

H&M Line Gets Festive

H&M‘s annual Fashion Against AIDS effort’s collection consists of around 20 pieces for women, 12 for men and some 20 accessories ranging from headphones to sleeping bags and a logo tote. The items will go on sale on May 20 at 200 selected H&M stores and a quarter of sales will be donated to youth HIV/AIDS awareness projects.

The advertising campaign, shot by Dan Mårtensen, shows Lizzie Jagger and Lou Doillon hanging out in a festival setting with male model Josh Beech, who moonlights as lead singer of British rock band Snish.

The women’s outfits include fringed tunics, cut-off denim shorts and tops embellished with sequins or ethnic details for a bohemian vibe. The look is completed with gladiator sandals and chunky jewelry. The men’s collection focuses on slim blazers and battered denim shorts, faded shirts and a leather biker jacket.

If that tent and sleeping back does not tempt you to want to attend a music festival then only the good Lord knows what will.

Gap Launches Another New Pant Style

On the heels of last year’s denim reboot, Gap is launching another major pants initiative. The men’s and women’s Premium Pant collection, shown Tuesday at Milk Studios in New York and in stores in August, is inspired by “the big part of life that is work,” as Gap executive vice president of design Patrick Robinson put it.


With its customers’ denim needs firmly addressed and their trust restored in the label’s fits, Robinson and his team went to work crafting a collection of sophisticated, polished styles suited to “high-stakes events,” i.e., dates or professional settings.
