Friday Fashion Fix - February 2012

Alberta Ferretti for Macys. 

Macys have secured a pretty fantastic collaborator; Alberta Ferretti. There is no doubt about it, this is no flash in the pan, collection rehash type of collaboration. It's Alberta therefore it will be beautiful. Inspired by the Amalfi Coast, the 30-piece capsule collection is hitting stores in April. The collection comprises of peasant blouses, abstract floral prints and voile dresses. 

Karl Lagerfeld edits the Metro. 

This week saw a very interesting partnership between Karl Lagerfeld and the Metro International. I love a good Karl quote, here are my highlights from the issue: 

On his diet: "I haven't touched sugar, sweets, butter, cake, cheese - all of that - for more than 11 years, and I'm not even tempted. I'm beyond temptation. I think that's the best thing that can happen in life". 

On Lana Del Rey: "I prefer Adele and Florence Welch. But as a modern singer she is not bag. The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice. Lana Del Rey is not bad at all. She looks very much like a modern-time singer. In her photos she is beautiful. Is she a construct with all her implants? She's not alone with implants". 

On people saying he's done too many collaborations: "I couldn't care less. It depends if I know the people. If unknown people say this, they should send me a note and explain why. The limit is up to me to decide". 

On death: "I couldn't care less...if you ask me, it's like a sleep where you don't wake up. You don't remember before, you remember after. The only thing is, I don't want to be seen dead, huh? So anywat, over, over. The battery is finished, huh? Pfft". 

Lana Del Rey covers UK Vogue. 

Speaking of Ms Del Rey, she has been shot my Mario Testino for the March cover of UK Vogue. Stunning shot. 

Kate Moss covers W Magazine. 

Wow. Talk about powerful, this is exactly why Kate Moss is a living legend. Shot by Steven Klein and styled by Edward Enniful, Kate makes the cover of W's March issue. 

Edie Campbell stars in Fullcircle SS12 campaign. 

Edie Campbell stars in Fullcircle's acclaimed SS12 campaign, a Vogue favourite for the season alongside the likes of Stella McCartney and Mulberry. 

Prada SS12 video. 

I love a Prada video. Seeing the hot rod sandals in action somehow makes them even more covetable and I love the emerald green patterned jumpsuit. What do you think of the video? 

Lanvin SS12 video. 

I love the fun, young vibe of Lanvin videos. This one just falls short of the awesome AW11 video which featured Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmerman dancing to an awful Pitbull song but I love the divine dinner party, addictive soundtrack and the abundance of snakes.
