Penney violates the terms of an exclusive pact Macy’s has to sell Martha Stewart Living products at its stores.” [Huff Po]

If the sudden spring weather has you thinking fling, Moises de la Renta is all for it. “New York has that whole masculine vibe in fashion, but with Mango I wanted to go back to something more classic and very romantic,” the young designer said this afternoon about his Spring collaboration with the Spanish retailer. Debuting the collection’s eight T-shirts at a presentation at the Crosby Hotel, the avowed New York kid took a turn away from your commonplace drapey and destroyed tees. Instead, inspired by a trip with his girlfriend to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, the junior de la Renta (his father is Oscar) was thinking flowers. One tee featured crystal-studded flowers and tulle accents, while a black number balanced gold chain-link hardware with pink petals and a sweet ribbon bow. Prices are far lower than the maison level—they range from $49.90 to $69.90—but MDLR, as he’s occasionally known, hasn’t lost the lofty dreams. “I would love to make my own line one of the big labels,” de la Renta mused.”But I also appreciate the intimate feel. My father’s line is run like a family.”
Girls who want a Mango fix stateside will be able to find the brand’s wares at JC Penney come Fall 2010. That’s good news for fans of the Spanish fast-fashion retailer. But it’s not soon enough if you’re looking to get your hands on Lee Jean Youn’s Mango Fashion Award-winning collection, pictured above. Earlier this year, the Korean designer beat out bigger names like Peter Pilotto and Josh Goot, as well as about 250 others, to take home Mango’s 300,000-euro prize and the chance to sell his creations at the label’s stores. The 11-piece range hits Mango’s Soho flagship on March 15. Another perk? Perhaps thanks to the exposure from the competition, Youn will have a small presentation in Paris during the January haute couture shows.
The company is now accepting applications for the third edition of the Mango Fashion Awards from up-and-comers who’ve produced at least two commercial womenswear collections. Click here for an application, and good luck. The deadline for entry is February 28, and the winner will be announced next November. We look forward to seeing your designs in stores (maybe even JC Penney?) sometime in 2011.
It wasn’t coffee that jolted me awake this morning but an e-mail with the new Mango campaign starring Scarlett Johansson. There she was in all her blonde glory, sprawled out on a (very questionable) floral couch in a sweater and ripped nylons (which seem to be as trendy as ripped jeans and just as tacky). I thought I was having déjà vu, because just last night I had been ogling Great Kate’s new images for her Topshop line. There she was in all her blonde glory sprawled out in a sweater and ripped nylons. Is Scarlett Kate’s mini me? Tell us what you think about this double vision.
