Mary Katrantzou to Collaborate with Adidas
London-based designer Mary Katrantzou will collaborate with Adidas Originals on a long-term collaboration starting this November. The collection will consist of women’s-focused apparel and a footwear line, although both can be unisex. Katrantzou is best known for her bright colors and unique prints. “I think print and color communicate perfectly to a wider audience. I wanted this collection to be more democratic because what I do every day is niche and luxury, so it’s great to translate my work into a product more people can enjoy,” she said. Katrantzou is so inspired by this collaboration she said there are plans to incorporate athleticwear into her own line. Past designer collaborations with Adidas include Yohji Yamamoto, Raf Simons, Rick Owens and Stella McCartney.

The Women of Worth program is currently in its ninth year and recognizes women who are involved with social causes.
Victoria’s Secret Show Moving to London
The much-hyped-about Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will happen in London on December 2nd. The runway spectacle is usually staged in the United States, most recently in New York City. As usual, the show will still be broadcast on television at a later date. Victoria’s Secret angels Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel joined the lingerie brand’s chief marketing officer Ed Razek in London to announce the change yesterday. “We’ve wanted to come to London since 1998, and we’re just really excited to be here,” said Razek.
