This may be the year of the Scrunchie return. In addition to the recent scrunchie craze, there's an equal craving for over-the-top headbands in bold colours like red and royal blue. Those kindergarten hair-accessories are inspired by a need to return to a more naive era but in all honesty, they're just a fun way to accessorise. 


Fashion followers have welcomed back one of the most polarising accessories of the past few decades. In the 90s and naughties, there was a common consensus that scrunchies are dated even kitsch. They led a life as a definitive faux pas by the mainstream culture but were also considered hipster material by labels like American Apparel or Retro Vintage. 

But recently, scrunchies have been resurfacing as a bonified trend, a runoff effect of the 80s  revival. The renaissance trend of the 80s is about to become fully adopted by popping up to various collections. For example, Urban Outfitters has offered a wide display of different types of scrunchies varying from velvet to satin. Over at Balenciaga, their chouchou versions are made from lambskin and priced at almost $200. 

Amidst the emerging scrunchies craze, a new luxe scrunchie brand was introduced. Comfort Objects is an accessories label based in Denmark that transforms vintage Hermès scarves into silk scarves, priced at $112. Insta - favourite Ganni adored for the rainbow stripes jumper, white cowboy boots and polka dot pieces presented his own scrunchie offering. Just this week, blogger Camille Charriere snapped a mirror selfie sporting a red floral scrunchie from the Copenhagen brand costing no more than $20. 

Match the scrunchie pattern with your dress for maximum effect or opt for a red accessory to tie in the outfit. These accessories are best employed with a muted outfit like a creme coloured victorian blouse jeans and flats.

Head to our gallery for more scrunchie inspiration and shop your favourite styles from our expert edit below!

We’ll take “earspiration” from anywhere at this point as the statement earring’s fashion renaissance is only getting bigger and better. The best source we’ve seen, and our current Instacrush, is @earafterear by DVF’s Senior Content Director Tilly Macalister-Smith (final picture above). The captivating feed the now New York based ex British Vogue staffer expertly curates features beautiful images of the world’s most creative and covetable earrings from jewellers past and present. Exquisite chandlers, jagged shards of metal, artsy hoops- it’s a sight to behold and very bad news for your credit card. 


What’s clear is that size doesn’t really matter when it comes to earrings; even the smallest ones can have the wow-factor if visible and there's so much admirable craftsmanship. The must-follow account also spotlights the lobes and the jewellery collections of some of your favourite editors and streetstyle stars like Pandora Sykes and The Sunday Times Fashion Director Jane McFarland; while bringing incredible finds to your attention as Macalister-Smith’s discovers them. 


Judging by the Ear After Ear website linked in the bio, an e-store is on the horizon but in the meantime, shop our exciting earring edit below to create your own ear party!

Modern Tailoring is dominating the fashion scene today from top influencers Pandora Sykes to Song of Style and Camille Charriere. But how did tailoring become so popular? Well, here’s a little history of how it became what it is today. 

During the Renaissance period, clothing was transformed from simple pieces of cloth to protect us from the elements to being cut, stitched and sewn to flatter the human form and accentuate features of the body. King Louis XIV of France was the first to make tailored coats, vests and trousers fashionable among royalty and the French courts. 

In England, during the 19th Century, tailoring became associated with English Gentlemen and went on to dominate mens fashion as the mainstream business attire. Perfection in tailoring was found in Saville Row in London where they developed specialist techniques to get the perfect fit, using materials such as wool and tweed. 

It wasn't until the 1940s when couturiers like Dior and later, Andre Courreges in the 1960s began making womens Ready-to-Wear suits collections which went on to inspire today’s greatest modern designers. 

Thankfully, today, you don’t have to go to Saville Row or Dior to pick up a great tailored jacket! There are many styles widely available from Stella McCartney to Topshop. Shopcade has a selection of fine tailored jackets below to get you suited and booted!

Zayn et Taylor Swift dévoilent enfin le clip vidéo de leur duo “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”, bande son officielle du 2ème volet de la saga 50 Nuances de Grey.


Tournée à l’hôtel Renaissance de St Pancras à Londres, la vidéo est loin d’illustrer l’érotisme du film. Frustration, colère, les deux chanteurs se languissent l’un de l’autre et exultent leurs coeurs brisés en détruisant leur chambre d’hôtel.

La bande son officielle du film 50 Nuances Plus Sombres sortira le 10 février, juste avant la St Valentin, date de sortie du film. Tove Lo, Halsey, Kygo, Nicki Minaj et Nick Jonas ont également enregistré des chansons pour l’album.

Découvrez la vidéo ci-dessus.

La fashion week parisienne bat son plein ! Découvrir les défilés de nos créateurs préférés c’est toujours un moment magique. Hier, nous avons découvert les collections printemps/été 2017 des maisons Balenciaga, Céline, Valentino, et Givenchy. Retour sur les moments forts de ces défilés. 


Balenciaga:
On peut dire que le directeur artistique Demna Gvasalia est un créateur à prendre au sérieux. Lorsque l’on crée des vêtements tout nouveaux et que les gens se les arrachent à la fin du défilé, c’est qu'il fait quelque chose de bien. 

Gvasalia a utilisé le spanx pour cette collection, en l'honneur de Cristobal Balenciaga, qui l’avait beaucoup utilisé dès son invention par DuPont en 1958. Les seules matières acceptées dans la mode quand on parle de stretch, c’est plutôt pour les vêtements de sport. Et bien figurez-vous que nous avons redécouvert le stretch, et c’est vraiment réussi pour le prêt-à-porter !

Et puis tout le côté année 80, on adore. Les (énormes) épaules, style dynastie, montrent que les femmes reviennent en force. 

Et oui mesdames, sociologiquement parlant, les grosses épaules dans la mode ont un lien direct avec le girl power! 

Céline:
Une collection qui ressemble vraiment à sa créatrice ! Classique mais moderne, edgy, subtile et féminine. Tout ce qu’on aime de Pheobe Philo, on l’a retrouvé hier à Paris pour le défilé Céline. La créatrice maitrise vraiment bien l’oxymore fashion !

Des robes bien girly mais pourtant noires, une longue chemise blanche très sexy et révélatrice, des inspirations de drapés grecques mais en baskets. Enfin un super show où l’on a l’impression de redécouvrir l’esprit Céline. Des vêtements assurément cool et stylés, et surtout sans vulgarité ! 

Le look parisien chic et branché, l’anglaise Pheobe Philo l’a bien compris ! 

Valentino:
Première collection pour le couturier italien Pierpaolo Piccioli depuis le départ de sa collègue Maria Grazia Chiuri (maintenant chez Dior)! La plus grande surprise de ce défilé ce n’était pas qu’il réussisse à changer Valentino, mais au contraire, de voir à quel point il est resté fidèle à la marque!

Nous avons alors eu le plaisir de découvrir une nouvelle interpretation, peut être un peu plus fraîche, d'une vision fashion croisée entre moyen-âge, renaissance, romantisme, et punk. Des vêtements qui représentaient une sorte de beauté pourtant très moderne et évidement féminine. 

Comme Piccioli le dit très bien, “la mode, c’est raconter une histoire”, et bien il y a en a eu une très belle chez Valentino pour le printemps/été 2017. 

Givenchy:
Riccardo Tisci a expliqué que pour sa collection, il y avait un thème bien précis, les femmes. “Les femmes se battent pour avoir le pouvoir, pas qu’aux Etat-Unis, partout dans le monde. Donc je voulais faire une collection plus sensuelle et puissante”. Effectivement, au niveau des couleurs on a bien reconnu la puissance dont il parlait, beaucoup de couleurs chaudes rappelant le feu tel le rouge, ocre, orange, rose, marron…etc. 

Il y a eu beaucoup de styles inspirés des vêtements d’hommes, par example les silhouettes avec des épaules accentuées ou des costumes (on oublie la chemise pour le côté sensuel). 

Pour cette collection, Riccardo Tisci ne s’est pas fatigué, mais c’est une belle promesse pour des belles collections futures où les femmes sont vues comme fortes et pas vulnérables. Merci Mr. Tisci!

reykjavik 


Iceland's coastal capital, which is actually the world's most northerly capital! It combines colourful buildings, creative people, nightlife and excellent culture! The snowy mountains in the background, sea surrounding and crisp air make it a city most visitors can't help but fall in love with.

Lublin

Lublin is the largest city in south-eastern Poland, and is a hotbed for culture and academia! Like many Polish cities it isn't picturesque because of the bombings during WWII, but the Rynek has seen some gentrification meaning there are now lots of great restaurants and clubs. 

Podgorica 

The capital of Montenegro has an amazing history, as it has been inhabited since the Illyrian and Roman eras, and despite much of the city being destroyed during the Second World War's bombings, it was reborn as the capital of Montenegro in Socialist Yugoslavia. The mix of old and new buildings make it an exciting weekend break. Make sure to go and see the Millennium bridge, the Old Turkish town and King Nikola's castle. 

Kaunas 

This city is in the south-central area of Lithuania, and has everything you'd want from a weekend break. The beautiful Old Town has Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture, with sites like the City Hall, St. Francis Xavier Church and the Vytautas' Bridge! Central Kaunas is home to the city's most famous road, Liasves Aleja- you could spend a whole day on this road and not get bored! 

Coimbra

One of Portugal's oldest cities, which also has a youthful buzz due to the Universities that reside there. It has medieval history, from the Church of Sao Tiago to the Santa Cruz Monastery. It's a weekend break that would suit anyone's vibe, in summer it becomes more peaceful as the students go home, but if you love hustle and bustle then term times are great. Top tip, rent a kayak and paddle down the Mondego River!

Kim and Kanye have done it again, they've featured in another iconic shoot. Remember the Vogue wedding one? Well this is a little more cheeky, it's called 'Icons: In bed with Kim and Kanye'...


Kimye talk about fame, fortune and legacy with Harper's Bazaar US. A fashion superhero team directed it with Karl Lagerfeld, Stephen Gan and Laura Brown all working on the spread. 

What insights did the couple give? Well, quite a lot. Apparently their favourite body part of one another is the 'heart', excuse me, I just vommed a little in my mouth. 

Apparently Kanye thinks the historical figures most similar to them are Muhammad Ali and Marilyn Monroe. We kinda get the Marilyn reference with Kim, But Ali and West? Not so convinced...

So what is Kim's favourite selfie pose? Apparently one in front of a mirror. Kanye likes Kim's nude selfies. Stating "I love her nude selfies. Like, I love the ones from the side, the back ones, and the front. I just love seeing her naked; I love nudity. And I love beautiful shapes. I feel like it's almost a Renaissance thing, a painting, a modern version of a painting. I think it's important for Kim to have her figure. To not show it would be like Adele not singing". 

For once Kanye has made some sense- Kim has an incredible body and it's empowering the way she embraces it. Here's to more nude selfies. Anything that gets Piers Morgan rilled up, we're fans of...

See the photos from the shoot in the gallery above...

Ce week end, tous les fashionistas s’étaient donnés rendez-vous à Londres pour assister au Vogue Festival.


Des conférences données par les plus grands noms de la mode ont rythmé ces 2 jours intenses avec, au programme, des discussions maquillage avec Kim Kardashian, leçons de coiffure avec Alexa Chung ou encore des conseils pour devenir une star sur Youtube.

La team Shopcade a décidé de s’intéresser à l’homme qui donne vie à Gucci et a assisté au talk d’Alessandro Michele.

Et, si c’est en partie à lui que l’on doit le retour de la Bomber jacket, le directeur créatif de la marque ne manque pas de nous le rappeler en portant son iconique veste verte brodée lors de la conférence.

Interviewé par Alexandra Shulman, éditeur en chef de Vogue UK, Alessandro révèle son processus de création, sa façon de voir la mode et son obsession pour la beauté.

“Mon équipe était vraiment sous le choc quand elle a commencé à travailler avec moi. Ils ne comprenaient pas que je mixe la Renaissance avec le street style. Je suis obsédé par les trompe-l’oeil - l’idée que quelque chose existe et n’existe pas. L’équipe travaille à partir d’une histoire - un livre, une exposition, internet - c’est comme un film.”

“Je ne crée pas un vêtement pour qu’il soit un produit mais plutôt pour qu’il soit proche d’une âme. La mode ce n’est pas un produit, c’est une idée dont on tombe amoureux et qu’on ne peut pas s’empêcher d’acheter. La mode ce n’est pas sérieux. Je ne suis pas sérieux. J’essaye de toujours m’amuser.”

“J’ai beaucoup de costumes, mais je trouve que je ne suis pas le genre de personne à qui ça va. Les costumes sont trop formels et sérieux. C’est pour cela que j’aime transgresser les règles et y ajouter quelque chose de singulier.”

“J’aime ce qui est beau, et l’ambiguïté des genres, ce n’est pas quelque chose que je voulais faire particulièrement. Nous ne sommes pas qu’une seule chose, on oscille entre deux mondes, et l’idée d’incertitude me plaît vraiment. La mode c’est une question de beauté, pas de genre. L’orientation sexuelle c’est un principe que l’on a inventé. En tant que designer, je dois parler le langage de la beauté - et ce n’est rien de spécifique.”

As Katy Perry embraced her inner geek at a Renaissance Festival on Saturday in sunny Cali, her newfound beau Orlando Bloom was spotted cosying up to Selena Gomez in da club. Whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas - just not when TMZ gets the scoop on a hot and heavy PDA session!

TMZ reports that sources insist Selena returned to her room alone but Katy is said to be embarrassed by the situation nonetheless.

Scroll through our gallery to see Selena and Orlando getting up close and personal at the after party of the first show of her Revival tour.

David Bowie was one of those people who could seamlessly transition from decade to decade and still be relevant, which is all the more reason why his death today is so poignant. 


Incredible artist, fashion icon, legend, these words hardly do him justice. Looking back over his career in order to try and whittle down the most defining moments, this is apparent. 

A tribute to one of the greatest rock gods of our time, here's 10 times David Bowie absolutely smashed the scene...

1. Ziggy Stardust: Very few artists today would commit to adopting a whole new persona as part of his latest fashion reinvention. Bowie even gave him a backstory and a suicide to match. 

2. Aladdin Sane: The master of disguise, Bowie revealed his next character in typical loud fashion- the now much copied lightening bolt look. 

3. Jareth in Labyrinth: How we felt for Sarah being taken in by the Goblin King, oh and how we loved the 80s mullet and makeup Bowie sported here! 

4. Mural Attraction: Born in Brixton, London a mural was drawn for him near his old house to honour his work. 

5. Famous Friends: He has many, but attending the 17th Annual Grammy Awards with John Lennon and Yoko Ono was one of the most intriguing. 

6. Second Marriage: Marries Somali-American model Iman in 1992 and they have two children. 

7. Inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame: In 1996 he received this accolade, with Madonna collecting the award on his behalf. 

8. Life on Mars: The ludicrously popular track got something of a renaissance when it featured as the theme tune for a new BBC series of the same name. A whole new generation of fans were born.

9. 'Chubby Little Fat Man': Bowie showing off his humorous side appearing in Ricky Gervais' Extras will go down in history as one of the cringiest moments ever broadcast. 

10. Releases his final album. To mark his 69th birthday, Bowie releases Lazarus- a fitting swansong, although we didn't realise it at the time.

There’s something gloriously understated about men’s fashion week in the capital. No over the top fanfare, just incredible shows, a good smattering of celebrities and brilliant parties. 


One of the highlights of London Collections: Men is Belstaff- enjoying something of a renaissance in the past five years thanks to in part, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock favouring them and a whole host of celeb fans- Dermot O'Leary, David Gandy and Labrinth to name but a few! 

Here’s five things we learned from Belstaff for next season… 

1. The arctic is coming: Many a male model was wrapped up in oversized jackets, roll necks, and furry hoods. Clearly they are predicting a cold winter this 2016. 

2. Learn to love PVC: Waterproof warmers are what it’s all about for AW16. 

3. The Michelin Man is your new icon: Puffas are back, which means you can keep warm without looking like an idiot. Hell yes. 

4. It’s all about the accessories: This season showed how versatile Belstaff are- showing gloves, mittens, backpacks and cashmere scarfs.

5. Look to the past: It’s just been announced that Sir Ranulph Fiennes will be the new face of Belstaff. The famous writer and explorer has been shot by Rankin and will appear in the press on Jan 25. Well played, Belstaff.
