It’s been a big week for British ready-to-wear label Meadham Kirchhoff. Designed by Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff, the brand, which is best known for its highly intricate and deliciously eccentric looks, launched its first capsule for Topshop earlier this week. (To our disappointment, some of our favorite items are already sold out.) Today, it was announced that the designers will be the stars of the Victoria & Albert Museum’s next Fashion in Motion event. Scheduled for December 6, the spectacular will offer four runway shows featuring the greatest hits from the brand’s seven years on the womenswear circuit. Here’s hoping that LED dance floor from the pair’s Fall ’12 disco collection (left) makes its way to the museum.
About Hollywood’s history, that is. On the heels of last year’s exhibition Hollywood Costume, which displayed ensembles worn by one hundred of cinema’s most iconic characters, the London-based museum will open a show exploring the life of legendary British actress Vivien Leigh this fall. The late actress was married to Laurence Olivier, palled around with the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Tennessee Williams, and the Queen Mother, and is best known for her role as high-strung Southern belle Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind.
