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.
