Style Snippets: Victoria Beckham Models Her Yellow Coat And Fendi Relaunches Website

This week in the world of fashwan, we've been obsessed with all things Ascot, imagined North West's bling-tastic wardrobe and chatted to Jourdan Dunn about cooking with Nicole Richie. As if that wasn't fash-tastic enough, here are some more style snippets to see you through the weekend...

1. Victoria Beckham is mellow is yellow

Victoria Beckham is without a doubt a wonderful advertisement for her own designs, lets be honest, nobody wears them better than VB. So we were excited to spot her landing in Beijing, China this morning donning once again a preview of her autumn winter 2013 collection (remember seeing her previewing some next-season flares just last week?). For her flight wardrobe Victoria paired some elegant blue cigarette trousers and regulation skyscraper stilettos with a sleeveless yellow coat, which we enjoyed first time around during New York Fashion Week, last February. Originally styled with black ankle boots and tied close for the show, VB has summer-fied hers by adding nude shoes, bright trousers along with a white top and bag while leaving the gilet style coat open for her appearance this morning.

2. Fendi gets a new website

Fendi.com have arrived! The brand spanking new website gives users the chance to discover the history of the house of Fendi which was created in 1925 by Adele Fendi. On the site you can discover never-before-seen archive images and brush up on your fashion history, with content celebrating the work of Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi. You can also watch the Pre Fall 2013 video to celebrate the new collection and see how Fendi icons are created, such as in the images below.


 Today marks the launch of the new Fendi.com. It is particularly exciting, as for the first time it gives the reader the opportunity to really delve into the incredible history of Fendi that began in Rome with Adele Fendi in 1925, before she handed the house down to her five daughters. Fendi.com has never-before-seen archival images alongside brand new content celebrating the creative genius of Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi. Fendi.com is also streaming the new Pre Fall 2013 video to celebrate the new collection.   On the new site one can discover how the Fendi icons are crafted by the experienced artisans, alongside which celebrities are carrying them. I've attached images of some of the key Fendi ICONS, the peekaboo, 2Jour and of course the Baguette which all play a role in the house's esteemed history.   Please find the press release below, with screen shots of the new site attached. Do let me know if we could do something about the newly released Fendi.com? Perhaps in conjunction with the making  of a Fendi icon? I've copied images of 'the making of the Peekaboo' below?

3. Astley Clarke receives MBE in 2013 Queens Honours List

Sandra Cameron (Sun Jun 23 15:25:17 BST 2013): well- if you think that oufit is "simply awful" then we all know you have the taste of a rubbish bag designer- so we won't worry about your comments.
Catherine Marche (Mon Jun 24 18:01:16 BST 2013): Well done to Bec!
