The MuseTV launches targeting Youth Market

February 29, 2012

Last night, themuse.tv launched. First off, and this is where I was confused, themuse.tv is not actually a new TV channel but a multi platform blog website targeted at 18-25 year olds highlighting street style and fashion and inviting them to post scrapbooks online – much like the current vogue for Pinterest.

Gucci merges Anna Karenina Infuences with Commercial Realism for A/W’12

February 27, 2012

I’m not sure about this season’s Gucci, to be honest. Is it commercial genius or is it just beginning to look a bit ‘older woman’ without the edginess?

Donatella Versace Goes Goth with a Conscience for A/W’12

February 25, 2012

There’s been a spate of darkness about the A/W ’12 shows in New York, London and Milan: reassuringly black (quite literally) but not grim in these austere times and striving for the inner Goth.
