This week Escada ups their cool factor, H&M announces their newest designer collaboration, + Pippa Middleton’s fashion followers are let down by some news from Alice Temperley. Want details? Read on!

 

With a brightly-hued capsule collection designed by Jonathan Saunders, Escada is reaching out to a younger customer through their diffusion line, Escada Sport. Saunders’ 2012 resort collection jazzes up the luxury brands’ signature houndstooth in vivid colors, and his color-block designs are right on trend. Now that Saunders is on board, it’s clear that this isn’t your grandmother’s Escada anymore.

The Royal Wedding’s breakout star, Pippa Middleton, inspired fashion lust all over the world in the gorgeous gowns she wore for the ceremony and the reception.  Unfortunately, it’s impossible to get either one.  Alice Temperley, who designed the emerald-green dress Pippa wore to the reception, was inundated with requests for the dress, but she says it was a design made exclusively for Miss Middleton.
