Into the Wild: The Fashion Set Endorses Glamping

-------

81414_Now_Trending_Glamping_blogWith the Spring ’15 shows about to barrel into town, we’re planning a restorative escape to the country. Nothing too out-there, mind you. We like to rough it without looking rough around the edges. We glamp, not camp (even if we’re still not sure glamp is a real word). Conveniently, there’s been no shortage of outdoorsy style inspiration, what with the summer’s never-ending music festival circuit. Back in June, Glastonbury found It Brits like Edie Campbell and Suki Waterhouse striking poses in utilitarian threads and rubber Wellies. And just last weekend, Mulberry and co. set up their tents at the Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire to debut Cara Delevingne’s new bags for the brand. Many of the recent menswear and Resort collections, meanwhile, seemed ready-made for high-end hiking trips and woodsy bonfire gatherings. Canvas parkas and waterproof Mackintoshes turned up at Marc by Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Julien David. And J.W. Anderson made an impression at Loewe with a debut collection of sturdy cuffed jeans and hardworking leather accessories photographed by Jamie Hawkesworth on rocky terrain outside Cadiz, Spain.

Here, what to wear on your next, ahem, glamping trip.

Mulberry CEO Steps Down

-------

Cara Delevingne and Bruno Guillon at MulberryAfter two years as the CEO of British luxury house Mulberry, Bruno Guillon has stepped down amid sales troubles, reports WWD. Guillon, who was previously the managing director of Hermès, helped heighten Mulberry’s profile during his tenure via star-studded front rows and a slew of It bags. Mulberry’s non-executive chairman and former CEO Godfrey Davis will fill Guillon’s shoes until a successor is found. Guillon’s departure comes nine months after the brand’s former creative director, Emma Hill, announced her resignation. Her successor, too, has yet to be named.

Runway to Red Carpet: Elegant Award Shows and a Dressed-Down Film Fest

-------

Brit MarlingBetween the continued Awards Season craze and the laid-back glam of the Sundance Film Festival, the celebrity set had plenty of red-carpet moments this week. America’s new darling (fashion and otherwise) Lupita Nyong’o and Helen Mirren, who both picked up trophies at Saturday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, strutted their stuff at the Producers Guild Awards the following evening. Nyong’o chose a figure-hugging Stella McCartney dress with an asymmetrical shoulder, while Mirren opted for a long-sleeved silver Fall ’13 Elie Saab gown embroidered with crystals. The ladies were joined on Sunday’s red carpet by Nyong’o's 12 Years a Slave castmate Sarah Paulson, who donned a sequined Marc Jacobs frock with floral embellishments from the designer’s memorable Spring ’14 runway.

While many celebrities opt for the casual sweater-and-jeans look during the chilly Sundance Film Festival, actresses Elizabeth Banks and Brit Marling’s red-carpet appearances struck the perfect balance between comfort and glamour. Banks paired a black-and-white grid-patterned Spring ’14 Ralph Lauren dress with black knee-high boots for an event on Tuesday, and Marling chose a black Proenza Schouler pantsuit with chalk-white details from the brand’s Spring ’14 lineup at the premiere of I Origins on Saturday. Marling continued to be a red-carpet highlight throughout the week, stepping out in Christopher Kane and Mulberry at another pair of events. No doubt, this duo is upping the festival’s sartorial game.

Here, more of this week’s red-carpet highlights.

Mulberry To Skip The LFW Runway

-------

Mulberry Spring '14Following Emma Hill’s departure from the house earlier this year, Mulberry has announced that it will not be sending its Fall ’14 collection down the catwalk during London Fashion Week in February. The British brand told WWD that it has “not finalized its creative director search,” and that it will still participate in LFW, on a smaller scale. Word on the street is that Mary Katrantzou, Roland Mouret, Erdem Moralioglu, and Sophie Hulme—whose handbags have generated quite a buzz among editors and consumers alike—are all potentially up for the gig.

Lulu & Co Debuts Resort

Lulu & Co. Resort 2014

Lulu & Co’s first Resort collection was birthed simply because the stockists asked for it. “It’s great to be wanted rather than to have to push,” says creative director Lulu Kennedy. The collection had all the cheeky, grungy, playful Lulu signatures (think satin bomber jackets, quirky floral-print joggers, and Lurex slogan sweaters). But there was also some weight to it. A soignée silk Dupioni dress with a fifties silhouette and delicate floral appliqué detail, as well as a sharp brocade top-and-trouser set, were more Babe Paley than Courtney Love. “I listened closely to the stockists for this collection—especially about what makes a collection viable commercially,” said Kennedy. Could these steps toward maturity have something to do with The Guardian pegging Kennedy as one of its “fantasy picks” for the Mulberry job? (Creative director Emma Hill left earlier this month.) Kennedy laughs it off, “I mean, the mere mention of it is wildly flattering, but I think I would be in the dark-horse category.” Continue Reading “Lulu & Co Debuts Resort” »
