The London-based luxury brand has opened a new flagship store in Shanghai, its largest in China so far and the first in the country to feature the Burberry Beauty room concept. Located in the city's Kerry Centre in Shanghai's Jing An district, it's the British brand's eighth location in the city. Open from Monday, the store will get an official launch with an event on April 24 designed to bring London to Shanghai with an immersive digital Burberry experience. With the full Burberry lines in-store, there's a dedicated watch area, and the first in-store Burberry Beauty room in China.
This year, the brand will be leaving the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City, which has hosted the show over the past four years, and setting up camp in London. The news was announced Tuesday in London at the Victoria's Secret Bond Street store by Brazilian model Adriana Lima and fellow "angel," South African Candice Swanepoel. The London show will take place on December 2 at London's Earls Court.
Just months ago it was his mother's fashion choices that sparked a buying frenzy -- but with just one pair of mini-dungarees Prince George appears to have stolen her fashion limelight. When the eight-month-old future king crawled about in a playgroup in Wellington, New Zealand, on Tuesday for what was billed as his first major public engagement, his outfit sold out within hours -- the same effect that his mother Catherine has had in the past. "In today's fashion climate what your children wear says as much about you as it does them," Estelle Lee, editor-in-chief of Baby and Me, a magazine for new parents, told British newspaper The Times. Two days ago, George's kangaroo-themed toy bag that was carried by his father Prince William as they arrived for their tour Down Under prompted a rush of orders on the website of the Australian Koala Foundation.
Known for its denim collections, Replay will reinvent itself and its signature material with Replay One Off, a new collection due in stores for the Fall-Winter 2014-2015 season. According to the brand, this chic new line represents "the evolution of denim."

Emphasizing innovation, the menswear line features raw denim jeans (available in slim, regular and regular evolution fit), combination chinos/sweatpants in multi-layered jersey, raw denim shirts, and a nylon padded jacket.

Some of the sportswear brand's most iconic pieces, including the Tempo running short and the Air Max 1 sneakers, have been adorned with a series of Liberty London's famous prints. The collection features three of the brand's prints: Anoosha, a floral design; Lora, inspired by William Morris's famous Willow print;
By MacDonald Dzirutwe KARIBA, Zimbabwe (Reuters) - Crocodiles are some of the most feared predators in Africa, ruthless reptiles renowned for tearing their prey to pieces before swallowing hunks of meat raw. But in the baking sun at Nyanyana crocodile farm on the shores of Zimbabwe's Lake Kariba, feeding time has a surreal edge as the beasts nibble lazily at bowls of vegetarian pellets. "We don't feed them meat anymore," said Oliver Kamundimu, financial director of farm owner Padenga Holdings. Four hundred kilometers (250 miles) northwest of Harare, Nyanyana is home to 50,000 Nile crocodiles and is one of three Padenga farms around Kariba, Africa's largest man-made lake.
By Amanda Orr HOUSTON (Reuters) - A Texas man who died after his girlfriend attacked him with her stiletto-heeled shoe might have been saved if police and medical responders at his Houston condominium had checked him for heart activity, a pathologist testified at the woman's murder trial on Monday. Defense attorneys have said 45-year-old Ana Trujillo was acting in self-defense against an alcohol-fueled assault by her boyfriend, University of Houston professor Stefan Andersson. "I did not see any one injury that would have been fatal to Dr. Andersson," forensic pathologist Lee Ann Grossberg told a Harris County jury. Because his pulse and respirations weren't checked, we will never know if he could have survived." Grossberg, who had not directly examined the body, said police and medical crews should have performed CPR or tried other emergency procedures, or at least used an electronic monitor to gauge his heart's activity.
The first volley is a series of short films which launched Monday featuring famed food artists Sam Bompas and Harry Parr of Bompas and Parr, young musician Clement Marfo, and Charles Morgan of sportscar maker Morgan Motor Company. It is the cornerstone of most wardrobes and is routinely worn by as diverse a selection of individuals as one could imagine -- from schoolchildren to presidents, the world over," explained Thomas Pink Creative Director, Florence Torrens. Thomas Pink will be awarding giftcards as prizes to the weekly winners of the competition.
Cool metallic colors, down-played animal prints, sheer shorts and radiant makeup were just some of the styles spotted at Sao Paulo Fashion Week. Eye-popping geometric patterns were the week's strongest style trend, Daniela Falcao of Brazilian Vogue told AFP. Diamond shapes and straight or curved lines were very much on view, notably in the Osklen, Ronaldo Fraga, Teca and Lolitta collections. Turquoise took the prize on the color front.
The world-famous Australian actress looks at least 20 years younger in the new Pre-Autumn/Winter campaign from Jimmy Choo. Scantily clad, Nicole Kidman barely looks like herself in the images, which seem to have been heavily edited. After transforming into a redhead in a campaign shot by Mikael Jansson and showing her sensual side for photographer Sølve Sundsbø, the 40-something is hardly recognizable in these images taken by Willy Vanderperre. Nonetheless, Kidman looks glamorous and rebellious, wearing a white blazer with black and silver boots, in line with the rock 'n' roll aesthetic of the Jimmy Choo pre-fall collection.
Among the aspiring Asian designers competing for the limelight at Tokyo Fashion Week, one of the most striking was an Indonesian label's bid to blend a traditional Muslim headscarf with haute couture. The twice-yearly show, which wraps up on Saturday, saw NurZahra roll out its autumn/winter collection "Layers of Fidelity", turning the modest hijab into sophisticated fashion. The label -- whose name means "the luminous light" in Arabic and takes from Fatimah Zahra, the daughter of Prophet Mohammed -- wanted to prove that the female hair-and-neck-covering wrap, common in the Islamic world, could still take on playful elements. "The modest hijab is not actually a restriction" in fashion, designer Windri Widiesta Dhari told reporters after her stylish designs hit the catwalk.
Interviewed at the luxurious Hôtel Meurice in Paris, the designer sat down with Parismodes.tv on March 13 to talk about his new Marc Jacobs Beauty line. At a Paris Fashion Week party earlier this month, the designer also unveiled the face of the line, 68-year-old Oscar winning actress Jessica Lange. How would you define female beauty? "My ideal beauty is someone who finds things or finds her look in makeup because they please her, they suit her, they may reference things that she likes or she may be experimental or whatever it is but again they are her self-expression and she really indulges in the luxury of makeup because it is something that she loves and not for others.
Most designers try to make consumers dream at their fashion shows, but Karl Lagerfeld sought to bring them back into real life by presenting his latest collection in a spoof Chanel supermarket. "For me the supermarket is the pop art of today," Lagerfeld said on Tuesday after the show, admitting he rarely went to supermarkets himself. Pushing brightly colored trolleys and pretending to exchange gossip, models picked up products with tongue-in-cheek labels such as Coco beer bottles, Chateau Gabrielle white wine and Chanel crémeuh - or creamoo - milk. Others carried metallic baskets adorned with Chanel's iconic handbag chains.
By Alexandria Sage PARIS (Reuters) - Designers at Paris fashion week mixed spectacle and showbiz to swing the fashion spotlight away from Hollywood's Oscars, with enough zippers, fringing and space-age chic to keep the photographers busy. Under the ornate ceiling of the Opera Garnier on Monday, British designer Stella McCartney presented sinewy zippers embroidered into parkas and sweaters in a collection with a 1970s vibe.
By Alexandria Sage PARIS (Reuters) - Rainy skies did not deter the fashionistas from gathering this week in Paris - with singer Rihanna this season's front-row "It" girl - as the Fall/Winter ready-to-wear collections promised cold weather looks to warm the iciest of hearts. As winter refused to say goodbye in the City of Light, Dior head designer Raf Simons resuscitated his "flower woman" on Friday, this time sheathing her in doubled-breasted power suits with white laces up the sides. Still, the audacious fabric and colour combinations, such as emerald green and fuchsia, kept fans of the house of Dior buzzing, and Rihanna, who sipped champagne from the front row at Lanvin the night before, slipped backstage to schmooze with Simons. Designer ready-to-wear, or pret-a-porter in French, is an 85-billion-euro ($116 billion) global business, according to Euromonitor, and the fashion week that runs from Tuesday through to March 3 is a major advertising weapon for brands.
By Isla Binnie MILAN (Reuters) - Hooded models walked in an enchanted forest and fox-fur mixed with lambskin on Milan's catwalks on Sunday as the city's women's fashion week drew to an end in a positive mood. A frosty oak tree rose from beneath the stage in a flurry of snow at Dolce and Gabbana before models glided out in clothes stitched with squirrels, foxes and childlike flowers. Salvatore Ferragamo showed a textured collection of furry coats, metallic dresses and leopard-print skirt suits for autumn and winter, in a startlingly bright white room. As Italy installs a new government and struggles to emerge from recession, the national chamber of fashion (CNMI) is strongly promoting a sector it forecasts will earn 62.5 billion euros ($85.63 million) in revenue in 2014.
MILAN (AP) — Hilary Swank, Eva Herzigova and Monica Bellucci gave Milan Fashion Week a burst of star power on Sunday, the fifth day of Milan Fashion Week that featured preview collections for next fall and winter by Dolce&Gabbana, Missoni, Marni and Ferragamo. And one young designer found his pot of gold.
