      J Crew will be 60% more expensive in the UK

      J Crew opens its first ever UK store in London today, but if you’re hoping to pick up some bargains, you’re probably going to be disappointed, because: a) It’s J Crew, not Primark and b) The brand has confirmed that UK shoppers will be paying around 60% more than their…

      Primark online shopping

      Primark online shopping now available at ASOS

      Whether you love Primark for the easy access it provides to cheap, fast fashion, or hate it for the very same reasons (The chain’s connection to the Bangladesh factory which collapsed earlier this year has led many shoppers to boycott the brand), as it’s the last of the major high…

      Isla Fisher as Becky Bloomwood in Confessions of a Shopaholic

      Can you have too many clothes?

      As Vivienne Westwood criticises Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, for having “too many clothes”, The Fashion Police ask: IS there such a thing? Can you have too many clothes, or is it a case of “the more, the merrier”? Becky Bloomwood doesn’t think you can have too many clothes… unless…

      H&M want your old clothes

      Maison Martin Margiela for H&M: what do you think?

      As we’re sure most of you are aware, this week saw the launch of Maison Martin Margiela’s capsule collection for H&M. Now, this was an interesting one for us, not just because Margiela is one of our all-time favourite fashion criminals (in fact, if Margiela himself was still designing for…

      Dorothy Perkins releases Kardashian Kollection

      Here in the UK, we get to be relatively shielded from the Kardashians and their obsession with the letter K. Not any more, though. This week, Dorothy Perkins released a new collection – sorry, “kollection” – in conjunction with the sisters K, and yes, they are spelling “collection” like that. We know….

      Richard Nicholl creates wedding collection for Topshop

      Say you’re a bride-to-be who’s also a fashionista. Where are you going to get your wedding dress? You can’t get a regular dress, obviously: you need to be edgy and fashion-forward at all times, and if you’re getting married in the summer of 2012, say, that basically means you’re going…

      Topshop Launches ‘Factory Girl’ collection

      It’s grim up north: or at least, it is for these models, apparently – look at those scowls! (Modelling is hard, of course, as we should never forget…) These images are from Topshop’s ‘Factory Girl’ collection, for Fall 2012, which drawns inspiration from the north of England in the sixties:…

      MARY KATRANTZOU for Topshop

      Mary Katrantzou for Topshop arrives, sells out almost instantly

      Well, that was quick work, Topshop shoppers. Mary Katrantzou’s capsule collection for the high street brand launched this morning, and at the time of writing, all that’s left is the hideous trousers pictured above, a scarf and a pair of leggings. And there’s not much of these left online either,…

      Karl Lagerfeld for Net-a-Porter: What do you think?

      Karl Lagerfeld’s collection for Net-a-Porter went on sale today, and as you can see, the models shown above managed to throw some particularly LOL-worthy shapes in honour of the occasion, bless their hearts. What about the clothes, though? Well, the collection is described as having “a fashion-forward edge”, and that…

      Jason Wu for Target lookbook

      Jason Wu for Target lookbook: your thoughts?

      So, we have to be honest: our main thought when we hear of another Target/designer collaboration is always, “Hey, Target! Open some stores in the UK, ‘kay? Our second thought in this particular case was something along the lines of “pop socks with heels? Really?” We’ll be scarred for life…
