Confirmed: SJP for Halston! PLUS Beckham’s new ad for Adidas Originals!

15 January 2010

Watch the new Adidas Originals ad above and perk up your morning with a dose of Becks and er, Darth Vader!

After yesterday’s speculation that SJP is joining forces with Halston, the label has confirmed that the SATC star will have 'an active design role' in its secondary line, Halston Heritage. Here’s hoping her efforts fair a little better than Li-Lo’s Ungaro debut... [nymag]

Uniqlo’s collaboration with Jil Sander was undoubtedly a match made in retail heaven, but it’s also given Uniqlo’s boss a pretty decent cash flow as he’s just topped Japan’s rich list. Nice. [guardian]

Perhaps Mr Uniqlo could spread his £5.7bn fortune across the seas to a certain Karl Lagerfeld, whose label has seen a considerable downsizing. Yep, even the Kaiser of fashion isn’t immune to the effects of the crunch de credit as the K Karl Lagerfeld line of denim and sportswear will be discontinued after spring's men's and women's collections. Boo. [wwd]

If you’re after a cultural excuse to pop over to Paris, why not check out this retrospective exhibition on YSL, displaying more than 300 pieces of couture. It’s bound to be beyond beautiful. [independent]

Gossip Girl stylist Eric Daman knows it’s all about give and take in the land of fashwan: 'I've helped [the cast] become fashion icons and they've helped me become who I am.' As for the boys? 'Taking straight men's fashion to this strange, dangerous place with very handsome, rich men drinking bourbon and wearing pink ascots — that's a very big movement for American men's fashion.' And it makes pretty sexy viewing for us too... [nymag]

Looking for a way to burn off that festive weight? All you need do is hit the highstreet. Hurrah! [dailymail]

Could this be a sign of things to come from the Choo + Ugg collaboration? [cocoperez]

First it was Camilla Belle followed by Lady Gaga and Daphne Guinness, but who’s the latest celeb daring to wear Alexander McQueen’s reptile S/S '10 designs? We just wish she hadn’t left the Armadillos at home... [modelinia]
