Editor Obsessions: MyTheresa’s Exclusive Calvin Klein Jeans Dungarees

-------

Calvin Klein Lottie Moss

Even though I was just a kid in the nineties, I feel like I’m actually experiencing the decade’s trends thanks to the latest surge of nineties nostalgia. With that in mind, I was very excited to see the new MyTheresa capsule collection of reissued Calvin Klein classics, which launched Wednesday. (Kate Moss’ little sister, Lottie, is the new face.) The CK logo sweatshirts are probably selling out as we speak, but I’m gravitating more toward these light-wash overalls. I’d wear them rolled-up with slides and a striped tee during the day, then elevate them with strappy sandals and a red lip for evening. The added bonus? They totally fall into the “art-teacher chic” trend we’re into right now. Rest assured I’ll be wearing these to Sunday brunch, not pottery class.

Lottie Moss Follows in Her Sister’s Footsteps as the New Face of Calvin Klein

-------

lottie-mossNothing comes between Calvin Klein and the Moss clan. Kate Moss famously posed for the label’s ad campaigns, alongside Mark Wahlberg, back in the nineties. Now her younger sister Lottie Moss is taking a turn as the face of the iconic American sportswear label. For its new Re-Issue Project with MyTheresa, Calvin Klein Jeans asked the 16-year-old to sport updated versions of its nine most classic pieces. The campaign was lensed by photographer Michael Avedon, who is also a legacy with the brand—his grandfather Richard Avedon photographed Brooke Shields for CK.

The capsule incudes original high-waisted skinny jeans and tapered jeans (popularized by none other than Kate), as well as denim jackets and shirts. The collection launches on MyTheresa on July 16, with prices ranging from $105 to $415. Here, a first look at the campaign.

In London, a Pair of German-Flavored Fetes

-------

Lilly Allen

The Germans let loose in London last night with a pair of playful parties and accessories. First up was the launch of the München Cute Monsters limited backpack, celebrating the impending World Cup, courtesy of the little label that could: MCM. Defying all odds, the German-Korean brand has carved out a position in the luxury accessories category with its super-pricey cartoon and stud-festooned pieces. And it’s collected fans like Rihanna and Beyoncé along the way. At a wild party at MCM’s Sloane Street flagship last night, Brazilian flamenco dancers twerked away at the door (and stopped traffic), while Lily Allen, who can never get enough of a great bag, spun a set. Inside, guests ogled the backpack, which featured Pop Art characters Viktor & Viktoria rendered in the colors of the Brazilian flag.

Down the road, My Theresa, too, invited the fashion set out for a night of fun. The online retailer teamed up with Anya Hindmarch to commemorate their friendship with a very special memento: a limited-edition version of Hindmarch’s best-selling Marano clutch, which will launch exclusively on mytheresa.com next month. At an intimate dinner at the Royal Academy of Art, the pair introduced the clutch that truly sums up their relationship, seeing as the bag is customized with a smiley face. Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe, Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, Hanneli Mustaparta, and My Theresa buying director Justin O’Shea (wearing a smiley-face tie) sat among sculptures of nudes and torsos. Naturally, O’Shea toasted his great friend. “We can’t get enough of Anya Hindmarch, and neither can our customers. Her happy take on fashion reminds us that fashion, above all, can be—and should be—fun. Otherwise, what’s the point of it all?”

French Lessons From Clémence Poésy

-------

Joining the likes of Victoria Beckham, Laura Brown, and Alexa Chung as a new “MyTheresa Woman” is French actress Clémence Poésy, who brings a healthy dose of Parisian chic to the table. The portrait series is comprised of short videos in which women of great style, intellect, and talent share their favorite finds from MyTheresa. In Poésy’s clip, which debuts exclusively on Style.com, the actress elaborates on her effortless, intuitive signature look.

“I love the idea of buying something that you keep for a long time,” Poésy offers in the film. “My favorite piece in my wardrobe is a shirt that was my mum’s in the 1970s. I’ve worn it so much that I can’t even take it out of my wardrobe anymore because I think it’s going to just break.”

Poésy’s personal style is quintessentially French—think floaty dresses, bedhead, and minimal accessories—but she admits to taking more risks when she travels stateside. “What I love about New York is that no one cares…You can wear whatever you want, you can be as crazy as you want. So I feel freer there.”

In her video, Poésy models everything from a sequined Saint Laurent blazer to an embroidered Valentino jumpsuit to a super-sheer white dress teamed with clunky lace-up boots. What can we say? We love a girl with multiple (sartorial) personalities.
