Take Your Coffee With Style

The Mulleavy sisters, Kate and Laura have teamed up with Starbucks to create a holiday collection of coffee accessories. They have taken the traditional white reusable Starbucks mug with green logo and pixilated it to the point where it’s almost unrecognizable. The design is finished off with a lime green lid.

In addition to the reusable cup, the Rodarte for Starbucks collection includes a reusable cup sleeve, Starbucks Card and tote bag all with the same pixilated print. The limited edition items will be available at Starbucks stores across the US and Canada (excluding Quebec) and online starting November 13. Prices range from $6-14.

Making The Shift

WWD reported that Anamaria Wilson, the fashion features director at Harper’s Bazaar, would be leaving the magazine to join Michael Kors as vice president of global corporate communications. Wilson is a publishing industry veteran, building her career over the past twenty years at titles such as WWD, W Magazine and, of course, Harper’s Bazaar,so her recent move to Kors is somewhat unexpected and it’s definitely a change of pace.

Several big-name editors have recently made the jump from editorial to brands. NYLON‘s Faran Krentcil is now at Clarins and Shopbop; New York Mag’s Jenny Kang is now at J. Crew; GQ‘s Sean Hotchkiss is also now at J.Crew; Glamour‘s Jenny Feldman is now at Amazon; Lucky‘s Jen Ford is now at Kate Spade; Marie Claire‘s Taylor Tomasi Hill is now at Moda Operandi; and the list goes on.

Meeting Marilyn Monroe

Salvatore Ferragamo is known as the ‘shoemaker of dreams’. His trusting relationships with legends of the screen in the 1920s through to the 1950s helped his name rocket to infamy; a legacy that endures via a focus on actresses and supermodels in Ferragamo campaigns today. Marilyn Monroe was one of Ferragamo’s most high profile fans, wearing his four-inch heels religiously both on and off set. It is fitting then that Florence’s Museo Salvatore Ferragamo should showcase a look into the life of Monroe. Going a step further, curators Stefania Ricci and Sergio Risaliti delved into the recesses of Monroe history to compile a book profiling more than just the exhibition.

“We wanted to reveal the sides of Monroe that few people knew: the fact that she was strong-willed, sensitive, a capable manager and a talented actress,” says Ricci.
