Kate Moss will launch a new collection
for Topshop in April. The
supermodel - who designed for the high-street store between May 2007 and
November 2010 - is reportedly already working on the range, which will be sold
in 40 countries worldwide and on Topshop.com.
The offering will comprise 40 pieces, spanning womenswear,
accessories and footwear, and - as with previous Topshop collaborations - is
expected to be inspired by Moss's personal wardrobe. The brand's creative
director and Vogue contributing fashion.
Moss's first collection for Topshop in May 2007 was met with
much fanfare: the supermodel launched the range by posing in the windows of the
Oxford Street store, while the clothes themselves became ubiquitous among the
under-30s. Highlights included a floral tea dress, which sparked a series of high-street copies, and denim
cut-offs, similar to shorts that Moss wore to Glastonbury.

Condé Nast has decided to
discontinue its internship program following a class-action lawsuit filed by two former interns saying that they were paid less than $1 dollar an hour, Women's Wear Daily reported on Wednesday. Condé Nast, which houses magazine
powerhouses like Vanity Fair, GQ and Vogue, was sued in June by former W
Magazine intern Lauren Ballinger and former New Yorker intern Matthew Leib,
both who claimed their employers had violated federal labor laws.
Interns currently employed with
Condé Nast will not be affected by the decision and are allowed to keep their
internships until the previously determined date, Women's Wear Daily also
The decision for Condé Nast to end
their internship program comes while the lawsuit against them is still pending.
However, this is not the first case of media interns taking legal action
against their employers. The same law firm handling the Condé Nast case is also
representing an intern with Harper's Bazaar who sued Hearst Corporation in 2012 for being made to work up to 55 hours per week
with no pay. In June, intern Eric Glatt won his lawsuit against Fox Searchlight Pictures for using unpaid interns in the production of
the 2010 film, "Black Swan."

Bless the Mess was born from a
shared passion for fashion and style, between two best friends. Their travels
around the world and encounters with diverse people have enriched their nomadic
lives, and it is as a result of these experiences that they have decided to
collaborate. This synthesis of spirits has created a collection of jackets for
the chic urban femme, a free spirit who appreciates details and ethnic
adornment. Bless the Mess is colorful contradictions. A brand that generates
inspiration from worldly authentic encounters amalgamated with a sense of
freedom.What began as a small shared dream has developed into a real

The French brand
celebrates 10 years of its Palais Royal boutique with a capsule collection
inspired by Daniel Buren's graphic stripes and Paul Bury's optical illusions,
which can be seen in the public artwork at the Palais Royal from the store at
156, galerie de Valois. With experimental
shapes, sculptural styles, laser cut leather, stiletto heels and graphic
trainers, Pierre Hardy's latest collection draws heavily on
architecture. After studying fine art and then learning the footwear design
ropes at Christian Dior and Hèrmes, where he was design director
for women's footwear, the designer founded his own eponymous shoe brand in
1999. In 2003, he opened his first Parisian boutique in the Palais Royal
gardens, a monumental center of French history. To celebrate a decade in the
Paris hotspot, Pierre Hardy created Palais Royal, an ultra
graphic capsule collection and homage to two of the most famous pieces of art
at Palais Royal: Buren's columns and Paul Bury's fountain.
A pair of sneakers and a stiletto shoe in graphic black and white leather
stripes are collection standouts, packing just as much of a style punch in
flats or heels.
