Continuing its close relationship with the fashion world, Bugaboo announced today a 3-year collaboration with the iconic lifestyle brand Diesel that will see the creation of three different collections. The first one is expected to hit the market in Autumn 2014. Viktor & Rolf, Missoni and Marc Jacobs are just some examples of other collaborations of the cool pushchair brand, but this time expect a more irreverent type of designs, more in tune with the Italian brand’s style.

It is always fun to discover new projects, most of all in the online fashion scene. Launching today, The Skype Collaboration Project (SCP) is a new global space dedicated to original content on today’s creative industries. Featuring editorial articles, video content, and image galleries, it aims to highlight creative innovators and inspiring stories from the world of fashion and beyond. Editor-in-Chief Emily Fleuriot’s first editorial is all about inspiration: ’I hope that The Skype Collaboration Project inspires, provokes and encourages those who interact with it to pursue your dreams and that you will share your stories as you do!’.
The content doesn’t disapoint this manifesto: Victoria Beckham‘s rise to the fashion podium, the amazing story of fashion brand Apolis, who shatter preconceived ideas by using Skype to create shoes between Palestine, Israel and California or the article about technology in fashion featuring FASHION GPS founder, Eddie Mullon are just some highlights of the first issue. Beautifully designed, it worth a visit.

News of the day: The collaboration between the über French designer Isabel Marant and the fast-fashion giant H&M. For H&M, Isabel Marant will create a wardrobe of must-have pieces inspired by her signature style. Available from November 14, 2013, in around 250 stores worldwide and online, the collection features clothing and accessories for women and teenagers. Isabel will also, for the first time, create a collection for men.
“I am flattered by this collaboration: H&M works with the best designers and this invitation is an exciting honour. I aim at creating something real, that women want to wear in their everyday lives, with a certain carelessness, which I think is very Parisian: you dress up, but do not pay too much attention and still look sexy. The collection is infused with this kind of easiness and attitude. Everything can be mixed following one’s own instincts: my take on fashion is all about personality” says Isabel Marant.
While I have to admit I look forward to see the pieces (I have a feeling that the garments will be more wearable and somehow “real” this time) I can’t help to remember this piece by Eugene Rabkin for BoF. I will just quote a fragment of the article that I find interesting.
“This is perfectly fine, of course. Providing access to affordable clothing is a noble goal. But, alas, this goal was perverted a long time ago by the rise of irresponsible consumer behaviour that has transformed the act of shopping into a leisure activity. According to Textile Recycling for Aid and International Development (TRAID), consumers in the UK purchase a whopping 2.15 million tonnes of new clothing a year. They also throw away over 900,000 garments each year, sometimes with the sales tags still on them. In the US, the picture is even more dire, with consumers dumping an estimated 10 million tonnes of clothing annually.
Dries van Noten once told me that his grandfather was a tailor whose specialty was to repair worn suits by taking them apart, turning the fabric inside out, and putting them back together. Surely, we no longer need to do this, but there is nonetheless something endearing in this story. We used to care about objects that surround us.”
