David Beckham Kicks Around a Sportswear Deal

image

Could it be true? Is David Beckham starting his own casual sportswear collection? According to sources, David Beckham has met with several companies, including Li & Fung, to discuss the possibility of creating his own sportswear line. However, sources say that no deal has been made  and when reached for comment both Beckham and Li & Fung had no comment. The ex-soccer star has one of the baddest girls in the fashion game by his side, so it would be no surprise if he expanded more into the fashion industry now that he has retired from soccer. Beckham has showed much interest in fashion lately, with collaborations with H&M and Adidas. In fact, Beckham has a swimwear line that will be hitting the H&M stores and online in May 2014. So is it so unbelievable to think that David will now be starting his own sportswear collection? We totally think this is a deal Beckham is kicking around, we just hope it’s one we can call a goal!

Now we all know the Kardashians have no problem with affording all kinds of luxuries, but the sisters claim the most important part of their line, besides being chic, is being affordable. Kim claims they, “Created a baby line, so there can be super affordable clothes for babies. Kids grow so fast. You need affordable clothes.” The outfits are adorable and definitely fashion forward.

Now all I’d like to know is will they make these outfits in my size too??

Target’s Creates New Line, Ámbar, for Latina Women but is it Causing Drama?

Supply and demand seems to be the reason why Target is changing up their clothing lines. Ámbar, a 39-piece line of women’s clothing geared towards the Latina women of today, has been created by Target and will be sold not only online, but in 50 stores throughout the United States. According to Target, the shift comes due to the fact that demographics in the U.S., especially California, seemed to be changing drastically because of the rise in the Hispanic community. Jenny Panske, Target’s segmentation merchant, explains that “With the rate the Hispanic population is growing, it is critical for us to offer a relevant assortment at a great value.”

The new line was made with Latina women in mind, keeping prints as a main focal point, but adding in some chic lengths and colors to keep it vibrant and fresh. That being said, some people are seeing this as a personal attack on the Hispanic community, some even explaining it as racist. In a sense, it is targeting a very specific group of people and generalizing the idea of what the average Latina woman should be wearing. Let’s hope Target can make this an entirely positive experience for shoppers and not get a bad reputation where there only seemed to be good intentions.

Here’s a look at some of the collection…

As New As Old Can Be: COMPLETEDWORKS Jewelry

completedworks_annexmagazine

With so much jewelry on the market these days, especially with fast-fashion companies releasing dozens of new designs each day, it is starting to feel like we’ve seen it all. Yes, each designer might put their own spin on a ring or a bracelet, but at the end of the day the jewelry industry doesn’t seem to be cultivating any innovative design these days. Until now.

Enter COMPLETEDWORKS, a jewelry company characterized by experimental temperament, exacting standards, and unceasing creative spirit. In the world of COMPLETEDWORKS, it’s not about “putting a spin” on jewelry design–it’s about revolutionizing it.

So how did COMPLETEDWORKS, Bollare style firm’s newest client,  find fresh inspiration in a clichéd industry? By turning the clock back and looking deep into the past to gain inspiration for their modern designs. Inspired by ruined architectures, the collection explores the moods and motifs of historical periods in which civilizational power shifted and changed hands. Fallen and shattered columns are translated into a captivating selection of rings, earrings, pendants and bracelets (pieces in the collection range from $235 – $11,480 in price.)  Each piece has its own story to tell and presents a unique riddle of paradoxes: broken vs. whole, jagged vs. elegant, old vs. new.

The overall impression portrayed throughout the COMPLETEDWORKS collection is one of elegance, movement, and power. The broken appearance of the ruins might even inspire a sense of wistful melancholy and a longing for lost beauty, while maintaining an air of regality and grace. COMPLETEDWORKS walks the line between ancient and modern, while tastefully bringing a conceptual edge to fine jewelry. Trust us, you haven’t seen anything like this before.

Maison Martin Margiela Couture Spring 2014

Maison Martin Margiela: this design house sure has an inventive spirit for creating couture looks. For this seasons collection, the design team created looks using offbeat materials like baseball mitts and tinsel in favor of a treasure trove of vintage fabrics. The textiles were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright from the Fifties and were whorled into long and lean butter robes. Arty patterns were cut and rearranged and word items like colorful chains, pearls, buttons paperclips and tabs from tin cans were used. We call this ‘up cycling’ but this has always been how Maison Martin showcases his collections. margiela-001 margiela-005 margiela-012 margiela-002 margiela-006 margiela-015 margiela-003 margiela-018 margiela-023
