Most Memorable Fashion Facts of 2010 (31 – 35)
2010 has almost come to and end. But we won’t celebrate the new year until we’ve looked back on a fantastic year of fashion. We’ve collected the news on the most memorable collaborations, upcoming models and other fashion facts you must not forget.
We made a top of 40 items. Earlier we presented news facts 1 to 30 and here are facts 31 to 35:
31. Dutch Designer: Iris van Herpen
Dutch Designer Iris van Herpen is becoming more and more popular. Though her designs are not always very wearable the fashion world loves her work. The shoes Iris designed for United Nude were featured in Vogue and Kim Kardashian walked around in them. As a proof of her talent Iris received three Dutch Fashion Awards and as a result British Vogue named her ‘One to watch’.
32. Chanel: fake fur & iceberg
For winter 2010 Karl Lagerfeld decided to make a statement. He would present a collection full of fake fur and stated that this was just as chic and glamorous. A great gesture, yet it didn’t quite match with the enormous iceberg he had imported from Sweden. In a time where global warming is one of the biggest problems it’s unbelievable Karl Lagerfeld can get away with importing icebergs. A fake iceberg to go with the fake fur would have been alright too.
33. Fench Vogue celebrates 90 years of fashion
This year French Vogue celebrated it’s ninetieth birthday. Carine Roitfeld put Lara Stone on the cover of her super thick issue and held a star studded masquerade ball to celebrate. Nobody knew she already had plans to leave the magazine at that moment…
French Vogue also launched it’s calendar, this time featuring a naked Daria Werbowy.
34. Jean Paul gaultier & La Perla
Known for his iconic cone bra and the many lingerie details he uses in his designs it was a smart move from Jean Paul Gaultier to collaborate with La Perla. This month the French designer and the Italian lingerie brand launched their first collection (with waist-cinching corsets, slips, extra high briefs and bustiers) together. JPG also teamed up with furniture brand Roche Bobois for some splendid sofas.
35. Lanvin for less
Was there ever so much talk on any H&M designer collaboration? We guess not. Lanvin for H&M was the talk of the day for over a month. First there were the leaked campaign images, then the video clips. After that, the fashion show in New York and finally the collection was actually for sale. Though the collection was a bit pricier than other collaborations every fashionista/o made sure to get her/his hands on some of the pieces.
