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

The latest Versace campaign was released at the weekend, with Lady Gaga the star of the show. It marks the singer’s debut for a fashion campaign, and is accompanied by the hashtag #VersaceLovesGaga.

Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the two images that so far form the SS14 campaign show off Gaga’s uncanny resemblance to Donatella Versace, with the singer donning a platinum blonde mane of hair.

One image, shown above, shows Gaga in a chiffon lilac gown, the same dress the ‘Artpop’ star wore for her entrance to the American Music Awards on Sunday.


On Wednesday Fashion East’s AW14 menswear line up was revealed, with several new names set to show at the installations.

Carrying on from last season, Liam Hodges and Tom Ryling will exhibit, while additionally CSM graduate Nicomede Talavera, jeweller Roxanne Farahman and shirt maker Massimo Casagrande join.

January’s London Collections: Men also marks Fashion East’s first partnership with Red Bull Catwalk Studio.

Having previously overseen collaborations between Alex Mattsson and Brooke Candy, this season Red Bull will provide made-to-measure mixtapes for each of the designers, soundtracking the 2 hour event.


And lastly, the news that your credit card could take quite a battering this weekend, with many labels announcing London sample sales.
