Gustavo Kuerten new face of Lacoste -"Unconventional Chic" campaign

French fashion brand Lacoste has chosen retired Brazilian tennis player Gustavo Kuerten as the new face for its "Unconventional Chic" campaign.
The three-time champion of the French Open (between 1997-2001) appears in the company's new ads, some of which were shot in black and white.
When the choice was announced by the brand behind the crocodile logo, the tennis player described the French Open and Lacoste as being part of his childhood dreams, now "become reality."
Kuerten, nicknamed "Guga," is also involved with an institute designed to help disabled and underprivileged children take part in sports activities.
Behind the Scenes in Paris with tennis legend Gustavo Kuerten and Lacoste Creative Director Felipe Oliveira Baptista at Paris’ historic Ecole des Beaux Arts.

The Brazilian tennis champion,"Guga", shares with Lacoste a very special link with French Open "Roland Garros".  "When I was young, Roland Garros and Lacoste were part of my dreams. Today I live this spectacular reality, it's another magic lifetime experience" said Gustavo Kuerten, who perfectly embodies Lacoste's brand values of relaxed elegance, style and "joie de vivre".

Beth Ditto wants IKEA-inspired plus size clothing fashion line

Beth Ditto - Jean Paul Gaultier
Gossip frontwoman Beth Ditto has spoken out about her plans for a signature plus size fashion line comprising simple basics, which she says would be "the IKEA of clothes for fat girls and boys."

"It wouldn't be crazy designs - it would be simple. I want to make the IKEA of clothes for fat girls and boys. Cheap, affordable, basic - but ethically made. Basics, you know?" Ditto told in an interview May 24.
The musician is also interested in nurturing her passion for vintage attire via an online store and is looking for the right partner for such a project.
"I want to do a ‘buy the outfit' function, and I want to show how outfits look on all kinds of different body types, even boys and butches," she added.
"It's high concept, and I don't have time. I'd need to find someone to work with me on it, but I'm also very controlling about this, just like I am with Gossip stuff."
Ditto also commented on the controversy following Chanel creative director and fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld's comments earlier this year that songstress Adele has "a divine voice and a beautiful face," but is "a little too fat."
"First of all, Karl Lagerfeld is not even sane. Second of all, he's not the end-all, be-all of what he does. He's really talented, but that doesn't mean he's right," said the singer.
"Third, Karl Lagerfeld used to be this really fat, eccentric dude. He always had that fat kid fan with him, too. To me, only a person who was fat could get away with saying something like that."

CFDA Fashion Awards

Following hot on the heels of the Met Ball debut live stream earlier this month, the upcoming Council of Fashion Designers of America- CFDA Awards will be broadcast online in their entirety for the first time.

In a similar fashion to the Met Ball stream, in which reporter William Norwich and model Elettra Wiedemann hosted red carpet coverage, fashion journalist Tim Blanks will be providing interviews and other exclusives as part of the CFDA Awards broadcast.

“We are excited to team up with the CFDA on the first-ever digital broadcast of one of fashion’s most important events,” said Dirk Standen, Editor in Chief of  “From the beginning, it has been the mission of to use technology to bring our global, fashion obsessed audience behind the closed doors of fashion.  This 50th anniversary show gives us an opportunity to do just that while allowing us to celebrate and give broader exposure to the incredible work of American designers.

The Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc. (CFDA) is a not-for-profit trade association of over 350 of America’s foremost fashion and accessory designers. As of 2009, Diane von Fürstenberg is the group's President and Steven Kolb is the Executive Director.

In addition to hosting the annual CFDA Fashion Awards, the organization is committed to nurturing the development of the American fashion industry’s future designers. The CFDA’s Educational Initiatives provide support and resources for students at the high school, collegiate and post-graduate levels. In addition, CFDA supports working designers in the early stages and throughout their careers.

Luxe stationery: Louis Vuitton to ‘pump up' writing category

Louis Vuitton Fall Winter 2012 2013 
Despite its increasing innovations in the online arena, Louis Vuitton hasn't forgotten the art of letter writing, with reports that the French luxury house is planning to expand its stationery offerings with more "paper goods and related paraphernalia."
The expansion plans follow the house's announcement earlier this year that it will be venturing into the realm of perfume, and is said to tie in with the development of its boutique in Paris's Saint-Germain-des-Prés literary neighborhood - famous for its past associations with writers such as Ernest Hemingway.
While there has not yet been an official announcement, sources told WWD this week that the leather goods label will be adding to its existing offerings which include pens, agendas and notebooks, with plans to "pump up its writing category."Other luxury labels to have ventured into the realm of stationery include Tiffany & Co. and Mulberry, while last year Oscar de la Renta revealed its collaboration with US luxury stationery firm Mrs. John L. Strong. The ornate set includes place cards, notecards and invitations adorned in bows and other common Oscar de la Renta motifs. (AFP Relax News)
