When Piers Atkinson decided to break away from the Headonism show at LFW this year we’ve have all been waiting to find out who will fill his boots. Well today we found out that Keely Hunter will be doing just that! Hunter will showcase her architectural designs at Somerset House in the Designer Showrooms and on Friday 13th September. This visor came from her S/S 13 collection so we’re sure that S/S 14 will not disappoint!
With a little help from his multi-talented friends and the new samsung galaxy note II, Alexander Wang has created a new Wallie gym sack. Wang believes “The abstract print really captures the energy of New York City,”, and this is only too fitting as donations from sales will go to Art Start, a charity that uses creative workshops to nurture the talents of underprivileged children in New York. A good bag for a good cause.
Jylle Navarro has teamed up with the amazing My Bad Sister and created some official knitted merchandise, available to buy on ASOS Marketplace!

Cutler and Gross have designed a limited edition model of its iconic 0734 sunglass frame, with all proceeds being donated to Elton John AIDS Foundation charity. It is the 20th year anniversary of the charity and Cutler and Gross seemed like fitting collaboration as they have provided Elton himself with many pairs of dazzling shades throughout his career. The frames will start from £320, with all the proceeds going to the charity and being able to do some wonderful things for those affected by AIDS. Brilliant shades for a deserving cause!
