Fashion Round Up: 15/11

Clash plays catch up with the week’s most fashionable news (or something to that effect).

Vivienne Westwood is working on her ‘first and only’ memoir with the writer Ian Kelly. The book will be part memoir part biography, with friends, family and associates contributing as well the 72 year old herself.

Set for release next October, the hardback book is to be published by Picador.

Kelly has said of the project, “I am keen to tell the truth about a huge-hearted, warm and witty individual, whose face and clothes are known the world over, but who is also recognisably the Derbyshire primary school teacher who met and fell in love with Malcolm McLaren and changed the world.”

Yesterday saw the launch of H&M’s latest collaboration, with the French designer Isabel Marant.

Famous both for her embroidered denims and for introducing the wedge trainer, Marant follows in the footsteps of Stella McCartney and Karl Lagerfeld by working with the brand.

Newspapers reported that some customers queued from as early as 4:30 am to secure their piece. As with most of H&M’s designer collections, many items have unfortunately now found their way onto Ebay.

And lastly the news that Dover Street Market is bringing its infamous Market Market back to London on 21st November.

Market Market Cardboard City – as this turn is named – will be hosted in Bermondsey and sees labels such as Comme des Garcons on sale with discounts of up to 75%.
