In case you haven’t noticed, British singer Adele has lost a lot of weight. No biggie, celebrities lose weight all the time. The question is if this weight loss helped her get on the cover of two major fashion magazines. Not really!! Adele has had covers of fashion magazines before she slimmed down.

That said, Adele is on the cover of both American and British Vogue magazines. These covers predate Adele’s new album, her first since 2015.

For the cover of American Vogue, Adele donned a green Valentino Haute Couture gown. And for her British Vogue cover, Adele was dressed in a corseted Vivienne Westwood dress.

Adele explains that her lost of weight was more about getting fit than slimming down. “It became my time,” Adele told American Vogue of her gym sessions. “I realized that when I was working out, I didn’t have any anxiety. It was never about losing weight. I thought, If I can make my body physically strong, and I can feel that and see that, then maybe one day I can make my emotions and my mind physically strong.”

Look out America, her comes Schiaparelli

Schiaparelli is one of those iconic fashion brands that has somewhat of a name recognition, particularly in Europe, but does not come immediately to mind in the US when thinking about luxury brands. Well, all that is about to change with the launch of the first Schiaparelli store in the US.

The US Schiaparelli is launching its own store inside the famed Bergdorf Goodman. The Schiaparelli store will be located on the fourth floor of the iconic New York City Store and will offer Schiaparelli’s ready-to-wear collection, including suits, denim parkas with bejeweled buttons, knitwear, coats and capes, dresses that transform into cocktail looks, accessories and leather goods. Additionally, there will be some evening gowns inspired by the brand’s haute couture collection, designed exclusively for Bergdorf Goodman.

Bergdorf Goodman has a long history with Schiaparelli, selling her collections in its stores from 1931 up until Elsa Schiaparelli closed her fashion house in 1954. Diego Della Valle quietly brought the brand back in 2012, first acquiring the brand’s archives and brand rights in 2006.

Since 2019, Daniel Roseberry has been creative director, and has successfully modernized Schiaparelli. “Our mission is to build an alternative couture house, and our luxury ready-to-wear line gives us the opportunity to do so. Our ready-to-wear offering is a way for us to balance the dreamlike narrative of couture with commercial credibility,” Rosebery explained in a release, as reported in fashionnetwork.com

The opening of the Schiaparelli salon inside Bergdorf Goodman is scheduled for October 12. The salon is modelled on the original Schiaparelli salon on Place Vendome in Paris and is designed by Roseberry and architect Daniel Romualdez.

John Boyega’s new gig

John Boyega has a new job. In addition to his extensive acting resume, this British actor can now add fashion collaborator to his list of accomplishments.

Boyega is the newest celebrity to be a part of H&M’s ‘Edition by.’ This collaboration with H&M features key season looks constructed from recycled, organic, and innovative materials, such as Vegea—a vegan alternative to leather, partly made from waste from the winemaking industry.

In response to this collaboration, Boyega stated that this collection, “aligns my passions with purpose … sustainability to me means thinking about longevity for the benefit of those coming after us. This collaboration has already birthed opportunities for fresh dynamic creatives. Two birds with one stone,” as reported in fashionnetwork.com.

At the center of this collaboration is sustainability. The collection contains key garments such as a chore jacket (a Europe online exclusive) with a patchwork denim design constructed from collected denim garments, remade into a contemporary style; a checked coat, partly made from premium Italian recycled wool; an organic cotton striped shirt; a zip-off jacket-to-vest puffer jacket (online exclusive worldwide), crafted from Vegea.

Edition by John Boyega‘ will launch in H&M stores and online on October 28.
