‘Coming soon to a woman near you’

The Most Newsworthy in Fashion and Trends

Mulberry vs Burberry – the two fashion houses display conflicting price tactics as Mulberry, the well known handbag chain, slashes prices whilst Burberry is raising the cost of their goods. Both moves are anticipated to help bring the brands in line with perceived competition with other fashion houses.

Lorde’s Voice – the 17 year old singer takes a stand against Photoshop, along with other well known celebs such as Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Winslet. Posting two photos of her at Lollapalooza, one with Photoshopped skin and one without, she said: “I find this curious – two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real. Remember flaws are ok :-)”

 

Mother and Daughter – Victoria Beckham is one of several fashion designers designing mother and daughter dresses for the charity, Born Free. As the mother of her own adorable little girl, Harper, the mini-me collection will be available to purchase from April 23. With endorsements from other big names such as Doutzen Kroes, Karolina Kurkova and Gisele Bundchen, we can’t imagine anything cuter.

Who Noes? – Nose chains: yay or nay? Fashion houses such as Ellera and Ricardo Tisci have taken the trend to the catwalks, whilst celebrities such as Kendall Jenner have worn the item in their public outings. But does it work for the average Oxford student? We’d love to hear what you think!

From Zooey, to Us – Aside from being everyone’s favourite New Girl, Zooey Deschanel has taken her unique preppy style to Tommy Hilfiger in a capsule collection called To Tommy, From Zooey. Having just launched online on both the Macy’s and Tommy Hilfiger websites, the collection features the cutest red, white and blue frocks for summer.
