Adele for Burberry? Rumour has it that the Brit singer will create a plus-sized capsule collection for the brand | Hollywood yohana

Adele Rumored to be Designing for Burberry

British Vogue is reporting that singer Adele has been in talks with Burberry‘s creative director Christopher Bailey to collaborate on a line of plus-size clothing for the historic British brand. Although neither side has chosen to comment on the rumors, the songstress has apparently been asked to work on a “bespoke range for voluptuous customers.”

While unprecedented for the brand, the collaboration makes sense; Adele has been a long-time fan of Burberry’s, choosing to wear pieces from the collection for big events such as the Brit Awards and the Grammy Awards. If the rumors happen to be true, this could also mean big things for the fashion industry. Although plus-sized models have been seen more regularly in the past few years in high fashion, no high-end design house like Burberry seems to cater accessible pieces to their plus-sized customers.

Style Panel: 4 ways (even a gown!) to put a definitively dressed up spin on denim | Hollywood yohana

We’ve all heard of the Canadian tuxedo: the denim-on-denim blazer/vest/button-down/pants combo that is apparently so intrinsic to our homeland’s stylistic DNA that it bears its name in title. It’s a ludicrous look, but it speaks to the fact that denim, at least in part, is indeed hard to live without. To play homage to our national adoration, we asked our Style Panelists how to amp up the typically casual fabric. As usual, we got several unique and equally awesome answers: from Amy Flying a Kite’s Amy Nelson in a pretty pink vintage sweater worn overtop loose jeans to A Fashion Love Affair’s Cara McLeay’s full on gown treatment; you’ll discover, if you haven’t already, that the denim possibilities are endless.

London Fashion Week Spring 2013 Street Style: We spot metal, lucite and a one miss Hanneli Mustaparta By Meredith Gillies | September 19th, 2012 | 3:30 | Hollywood yohana

London Fashion Week Spring 2013 Street Style

In our last edition of London Fashion Week street style from the Spring 2013 show season, our resident street style photographer, Stefania Yarhi, has captured the tail end of the stylish folk before heading to Milan. It wouldn’t be a day at fashion week without spotting a Balenciaga sci-fi sweater and a vintage print like the D.A.R.E. logo (how very junior high).
We love the bold prints that have been popping up but today’s photos are all about the hardware. Zippers, chain belts and straps from Chanel, the Balenciaga studs we know so well from their coveted bags, and a whole lot of gold. Despite the metallic hardware that was shining on the bags, multiple street stylers had transparent bags. Whether it was a Lucite box holding a wallet or large clutch with perforations, what’s inside of a women’s bag is no longer a secret.

The accessories make the outfit at the end of London Fashion Week and the baby pink backpack takes us back to the days when Baby Spice and Cher Horowitz reigned as queens of the 90s (we’re not complaining). The mini-backpack was not the only throwback spotted, Hanneli Mustaparta took us back in a chunky box shaped knit.
Milan Fashion Week has already started and the fashion photographs will keep rolling in. Fingers crossed that it will have some of the most bold looks yet–we’re looking at you Anna Dello Russo.

London Fashion Week Spring 2013: 5 trends already staking their claim on next season | Hollywood yohana

J.W Anderson Spring 2013

While the international collections are only half way through there is no doubt that some Spring 2013 trends have been set. London Fashion Week elaborated on some of the trends that we first spotted in New York making spring style seem clearer than ever. Spring 2013 promises bold fashion ready for risk takers. Those who thought the crop top was a phase seem to have been proven wrong. Look for bare bellies and plenty of skin throughout the collections—start those crunches now.
Skin is definitely in, as leather frequents the catwalks for Spring 2013. At Mulberry, leather-on-leather takes the typically non-summer fabric for a ride dropping it right in the middle of its sugary sweet sixties-inspired collection. Meanwhile, defined digital prints continue to develop for Spring 2013 in the hands of their mistress, Mary Katrantzou: vivid images take us on a trip with international banknotes and postage stamps.

For another continued Spring 2013 trend, Acne and Jonathan Saunders employ stripes for an eye-catching effect, with the vertical stripe is proving to be an unsurprising staple come spring. Finally, Burberry Prorsum mixes in metallic to modernize the classic Burberry look. These shining looks inspire us to update our spring wardrobe with a splash of flash.
