Back in August, Lady Gaga shared the exciting news that she will be starring along with the iconic singer Tony Bennett in H&M’s upcoming holiday campaign. While we already had a glitch of the campaign with a behind the scene photo, yesterday the queen of pop unveiled the first images of the campaign via her instagram, and it’s looking good!
H&M revealed today that the H&M’s festive seasonal collection campaign commercial, which will premiere exclusively on November 25th on hm.com will feature Gaga and Bennet singing “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Aint Got That Swing)” from their number one new album, Cheek To Cheek, which will be sold in select stores across the U.S.
“We were inspired by the glitz, glamour, and opulence of the 1940s’ Big Band era. The mood is one of festive celebration shot through with a strong sense of fashion and underlying humor. It is intriguing, curious, exuberant, audacious, and filled with wonder.” says Johan Renck, director of the commercial.
The campaign paints an enchanting adventure celebrating the holiday spirit of giving and togetherness with an H&M family of supermodels (Sean O’pry, Joan Smalls, Sasha Pivovarova, Charlotte Carey…) and superstars! There’s a glistening mood showing effortless glamour with flirty red dresses and skirts and sequined tops. Knits are a winter essential, including the cozy oversized sweater worn by Lady Gaga in the print campaign.
“I love the feeling of celebration at H&M this holiday season. Women’s dresses sparkle and give a new twist to traditional red, while men look festive in different plaids, and kids in all their different fun prints.” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s Head of Design, New Development.
Throughout the holiday season, H&M will raise funds for CARE, a humanitarian organization working alongside underprivileged women and girls to help fight global poverty. All H&M stores will sell a special set of gift labels. For each pack sold, the H&M Conscious Foundation will donate double the sales price to CARE.

In a design collaboration like nothing seen before it, Nike will present a new women’s training collection created in partnership with Brazilian designer Pedro Lourenço. Inspired by an emerging desire for luxury in sport performance gear, the collection presents a modern interpretation of athletic apparel for women. Like all Nike product, the Nike x Pedro Lourenço Collection aims to amplify the athlete’s confidence and help her achieve her fitness goals.
Designed to transition from workouts to everyday wear, the collection represents a play on proportions and layering. The result is a curated selection of Nike Women’s leading innovations reinvented through new materials and detailing. The Nike x Pedro Lourenço Collection includes three looks and two footwear options designed to be worn together to create styles functional for the street and the gym.
Throughout the collection, Lourenço employs materials that perform, yet also are soft and feminine. For example, the collection features a neoprene jacket that is crafted with ‘60s-era couture tailoring techniques. Despite this ode to the past, the jacket features present-day technology, as Dri-FIT mesh pulls sweat away from the skin to help keep athletes dry and comfortable.
Lourenço also uses Nike technologies as a functional aesthetic detailing. For example, gradient flocking in black and nude colors identifies areas of enhanced breathability. The addition of a skirt panel to the training tight flatters the form, while reflective details throughout the collection help keep athletes visible at night.
The Nike x Pedro Lourenço Collection will be available globally on Nov. 13 at NikeLab and NikeLab DSM locations in New York, Amsterdam, Berlin, London, Milan, Paris, Stockholm, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Rio and online through nike.com/nikelab.

“Tonight’s event for the launch of Alexander Wang x H&M was about high energy and a full experience that goes beyond fashion; from the attitude and speed of the show, to the pop-up store in a locker-room setting, and the performances by Missy Elliott and Sharaya J at the after party,” says Alexander Wang.
“Tonight’s celebration truly reflected the theme of the Alexander Wang x H&M collection. It was like being at the ultimate meeting between fashion and sport, and it was perfect to launch it here in New York,” says Margareta van den Bosch, H&M’s Creative Advisor.
After the show the catwalk turned into a dance floor with DJ Jesse Marco, followed with a performance by Sharaya J, Missy Elliott, DJ Diplo kept the party going into the night.
“The collection is hot. It’s fly, it’s edgy, it’s everything. I love it,” says Mary J. Blige.
“I love Alexander. I love how he takes street clothes and turns them into fashion. It’s great how H&M’s collaborations make designer fashion on a scale that people can afford,” says Jessica Chastain.
The collection features sportswear and sleek pieces for men and women, minimalist lines with geometric cutouts and technical materials. Blistered coats , “WANG” branded hoodies, dresses with perforated strips , leggings and cropped tops … lots of appealing pieces that have already conquered everyone, including Rihanna which was spotted wearing a look at New York Fashion Week back in September.

Directed by Baz Luhrmann, who has also created 2004 campaign featuring Nicole Kidman in 2004, the new CHANEL N°5 film has landed.
“You’re the one That I want” the captivating song cover by violinist and singer Lo Fang summarizes the love story played by Michiel Huisman and Gisele Bundchen in the New Chanel No. 5 film. The well-known director aesthetic interferes in the life of a woman of a thousand lives: surfer at dawn, she plays with her daughter, strike a pose on a shoot then runs away to join the love of her life.
“Today, women have many facets. They run businesses, do business, are wives, mothers, daughters … This resonates with me,”says Gisele Bündchen.
“What Karl Lagerfeld did admirably well in his work, is to take a classic, something we think we know, and turn to something new. I tried the equivalent in music. And I think Lo-Fang has made this classic song that Karl is in fashion. What we think we know, he offers a different feeling, a different aspect.” says Baz Luhrmann

The new essentials of Versace Spring 2015 collection: stripped back and bold, sexy and fresh. Lines are clean, colours are strong, details are playful. A new Versace print clashes images of metal rings with the Medusa and abstracted optics. Swarovski crystal mesh dresses are youthful and strong, with straps held by utilitarian buckles.
Drawing inspiration from the 1980’s, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a sporty-chic hairstyle for Versace’s Spring/Summer 2015 show in Milan. Using guts 10 volumizing spray-foam mousse to create height in the front and forceful 23 super strength finishing spray for the perfect amount of control and shine, Guido achieved a minimal hairstyle that made a massive statement on the runway.
“The Versace girl is a bit sporty this season, but still very modern and glamorous. I created this minimal and very natural hairstyle to enhance this feeling. I created volume in the front with guts 10, and left the back natural to get that beautiful, modern texture. Then I raked my fingers back through the hair, using forceful 23 to create those distinct lines and hold for a boyish, sporty vibe that’s still quite glamorous with the height in the front and shiny finish.” Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
Create the Look:
- Thoroughly mist Pillow Proof Blow Dry express primer all over hair and comb through.
- While hair is still damp, apply guts 10 root targeted volume spray foam on roots at the crown.
- Blow-dry hair at the crown until it is completely dry.
- Spray the back of the hair with water and let dry naturally.
- Rake hair back with fingers to create visible lines and spray with forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to hold hair in place.
Finish with a touch of shine flash 02 glistening mist all over for added shine.

Graphic exuberance and calm assurance at Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015. In a surge of mineral colors , oversized calligraphy, lettering , large insects and birds on elegant evening trench coats , coats wasp-waisted skirts and frilly , it’s a show full of energy.
“I wanted to express the idea of ??fragility and strength. And I love nature and the feeling of rebirth that it offers” says creative director Christopher Bailey
The designer sought out these insects, flowers illustrations from old ornithology and entomology books.
The contrasts are played with success: a Japanese stretch-denim jacket with a soft shearling trim pairs with a tulle pleated skirts, a gabardine parkas with silk organza worn with the new sneakers to finish the look .
British musician James Bay performed three tracks live on the runway, in front of newly house fragrance star duo Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne, sitting next to Olivia Palermo, Naomi Harris.
