Fashion Insider: L’Wren Scott Makes a Fashion Statement and Kate Hudson Shows Her Sporty Side

17 Jul 2013

The hottest news from fashion’s front row

High Street Love
Designer L’Wren Scott has teamed up with Banana Republic to create a 50-piece limited edition collection which will be sold throughout their stores. The fashion designer, who is a favourite of Nicole Kidman and Isla Fisher, will bring her classic feminine designs to the Banana Republic chain. The collection will be launching in stores worldwide in December.

Kate’s A Good Sport!
So it wasn’t just a coincidence that Kate Hudson was showing her sporty side at post Wimbledon parties; she is in fact launching a range of sportswear. Partnering with US website JustFab, Kate plans to launch Fabletics later this year. The collection will feature stylish leggings, tops and jackets perfect for working out in.

Isabel Gives Us A Taster
Designer Isabel Marant took to H&M’s twitter account to give a sneak peek into her collaboration with the brand. Isabel herself modelled an Aztec printed drop-waist monochrome dress, giving us just a small glance of what’s to come when the full collection is released here in the UAE in November. She chose to wear the dress with a pair of her signature black suede ankle boots, I sure do hope these are part of the H&M range too!

MaxMara In The UAE!
MaxMara has opened a new flagship store in Dubai. A favourite of Jessica Chastain and Katie Holmes, the MaxMara store will open this month in The Dubai Mall. The modern and fresh design will be a shopper’s paradise.

And finally... There’s yet another designer and high street collaboration in the works between Swarovski jewelers and fashion designer Maison Martin Margiela. The two will partner up on a collection of ready-to-wear and couture jewellery pieces later in the year. Fab!
